The other day, I was grinding FATEs near Drybone in Thanalan when I saw someone shouting for a Raise on Highbridge. I was levelling THM at the time so I switched over to my level 50 PLD to Raise this guy. He was also shouting about the level 30 GLA quest, "The Rematch." I remember having difficulty with this quest, so I offered my help in not only re-raising him after failed attempts and wipes, but each time he came up, I popped a Protect as well. I tried my best trying to recount how and what to kill and in what order (as instanced fights normally are), though it took awhile. But I honestly enjoyed taking this budding GLA under my wing and helped him out until he successfully finished. He added me to his friend list and I offered to help him if he got caught up on any upcoming quests as PLD.
Thing is, I've rarely had the opportunity to do this and I really enjoyed it. It really brought me back to when I used to play FFXI and people were to willing to help and were patient, because back then, it took time to complete quests, particularly farming for testimonies and items for breaking the level cap.
One of the reasons I found this so fulfilling to do, is because I never was a "top player" in FFXI, or any MMO for that matter. I wouldn't even consider myself one in FFXIV. I was never high enough of a level to really pay back for all the help I had recieved and it's nice that I had the opportunity to do so in XIV.
So I was hoping that this thread could serve a place where people can post there "little moments of win" when they went out of their way to help another player succeed.
