I am in the process of downloading the update for FFXIV. I have been playing lots of other MMO's in the past years and could not really find one to settle in with. I've also been reading a lot on ZAM forums and FFXI and XIV forums to get information on what's been going on with the development of FFXIV 2.0. Everything looks like it's rolling in a positive direction. I've always mainly played FFXI, but then I quit a few years back due to personal issues and I only returned a few days ago to FFXI. While I still loved the atmosphere, I did not want to start from scratch again. And so, I bought a copy of FFXIV and am willing to pick it up and dedicate the time I have to it. I was just hoping someone could help bring to light a few questions I have about starting off...
First - What server should I look to join? I do not have any IRL friends that play, I guess I'd mainly be looking for a server for US Pacific Time zone. Any suggestions for a new player?
Second - Any Linkshells out there looking to recruit members?
If this game is even anything like FFXI, I think I will be satisfied. I never played it when it first came out (although I really wanted to get it), I guess I was sorta "fortunate" since its release kinda crashed hard core. I really do not know what to expect... I am really just looking forward to the 2.0 release. Anyways, thanks for listening. =)
