    God I still need to finish that expansion
    But between having my stuff locked in Mog Wardrobes and needing to redo all my Macros/Setup Gearswap again I dunno if it's worth it all

    They'd have to remake the entire game as single player with a totally revamped UI and combat system for me to even consider trying it.

      I mean the game is already single player but i'm not sure if they will ever revamp the UI i think there was a reason why they couldn't

      I prefer a clean menu based UI to the weird shit they try and pass off on us these days

    How exactly is combat in XI handled? It looked decidedly different from what I'm used to seeing.

      Melee have weapon skills wich have a somehow called "property" to it. Then another person or yourself can do another weapon skill with a property that can skillchain with the previous one sso you can skill chain for more damage.
      Mages with spells can magic burst these skill chains with the corresponding element to do more damage.
      Everything else is your standard old final fantasy rpg elements.

      Basic Combat is Auto-Attack
      Weapon Attack Speed is affected by a Weapons Delay + any Buffs (Such as Haste)
      The Higher the Delay, the more time it takes to make an Attack
      So a Dagger is faster than a Great Axe, for example in terms of attack speeds
      Haste can help make the delay shorter in-between Attacks, and is a core part of how current XI handles fighting (Along with Double + Triple Attack)
      Landing attacks allows you to build TP, which can be used to perform Weapon Skills; every weapon has their own type of Weapon Skills
      Certain Weapon Skills are more potent with more TP

        Sounds interesting. I oughta give XI a go then. Still sounds like it has a pretty dedicated community still. Last I heard of it was on a PS2 demo disc that had a trailer for it.

          Take into account that in retail now you will play like 60 hours of story with little to no human interaction.

          Very much so, it's still pretty popular
          Last I played Asura was still the most populated English-Speaking Server, but I also hear some anon's made a Linkshell (Guild) on another server some time ago
          Someone else in the thread may be able to tell you if Asura is still the go-to or if the Anon Linkshell is still alive or not

            The Ganker guild is on Phoenix. Pretty cool and helpful people. I always seen people telling straight to not go to asura. if you want a high pop server go behemoth. If you wanna play with the people from Ganker go phoenix and just go there and ask for an invite on the board or maybe they're around here.

    How difficult is the pre endgame stuff? I'm interested in playing, but I don't want it to be a boring cakewalk like XIV.

      On retail it depends. If there's a triple exp thingy going on you'll get levels way too fast that everything will be a cakewalk (except for some like 1 or 2 fights that are hard not by itself but how fucking unreliable trust sometimes are). If you don't power level also it will be somehow acceptable but nothing hard since trust are like cheating in this game.

      try playing on a private server like Nasomi so you can experience the magic of 75-cap CoP era (aka prime FFXI). You're allowed to dualbox (control two characters at once) and xp rates are adjusted so you can level to 75 in vanilla without a party if you have a nice synergetic combo (I did RDM main screen and PLD second screen, for instance). Definitely one of the more challenging things I've tried at any point, controlling one char can be a snoozefest but swapping back and forth between two was juuuust right for me personally

    Can anyone give me a rundown of how Corsair is in FFXI? I've been talking to a lot of people in XIV about what possible jobs could be introduced in the future and they consistently bring up Corsair. What exactly is it besides a pirate?

      It's a support job that buffs allies with a blackjack like gambling system and also does damage with guns.

      It will never make it into XIV because support jobs don't fit into XIV's job trinity. The XIV Bard is a DPS for fuck's sake.

      Support that deals supplemental damage with guns (in FFXI, a support job is basically a job that can supplement other roles, as well as refreshing the party's MP and dispelling the enemy). Their main ability is called Phantom Roll. Basically they use dice to play blackjack and they can learn (re: buy) different rolls that give nearby party members different buffs. Most buffs are associated with a certain job and get a bonus if that job is in the party. Every roll has its own unlucky and lucky numbers, which are weaker or stronger than they should be given the number. If you go over 11 you bust, removing everyone's buff and giving you a debuff for whatever the buff was. You can have two rolls up at a time. They can also refresh ability cooldowns and deal elemental damage, sleep and dispel enemies with Quick Draw where you shoot through an elemental playing card. What it does after 75 I only have hazy knowledge of.

      It's kind of an expensive job since you have to buy bullets, cards (every Quick Draw uses a card) and dice (like spell scrolls, and they're super expensive for a new player, but you can just buy the ones you know you'll use).

      However, when I came back a few years ago to just run around doing quests I never did and stuff like that, I went COR because at 76 they get Bolter's Roll which increases movement speed. On top of having Crimson Cuisses, I sub Dancer and get Chocobo Jig, and it's my fastest job in the game. It feels so fucking good.
