Ok...Soooo I keep seeing these shouts for "Raise please at (x, y)" usually followed by "My home is ____."
Now, I'm only level 23 on my gladiator, but I'm seeing these shouts in the level 30 areas, and my first thought is... Teleport.
Like by the time someone actually decides to stop what they're doing to come and help you, you will have wasted just as much if not MORE time than if you had just teleported to a nearby town and ridden your mount to wherever it is you are.
Raises to me don't seem as pertinent as in FFXI where it would take you 20-30 minutes to get back to your location so please enough with the raise shouts! Yes teleports cost money, but seriously it's not much. OR DO A CHOCOBO PORTER:)
