Level 25 is the cap this time and i have to say, 20-25 is a lot more fun than 1-20. I'm sure it's because i'm a Templar and we pretty much suck without some important stigmas and abilities we get later on. Right now the ranged damage dealer classes have whooped my butt and i don't see that changing til the mid 30's, when i get another ability. I honestly wasn't sure what to expect because i'm not really a PVP person, but the more i try out the game, the better it gets. There's so much to do PVE wise and so many quests, gathering, and crafting, that i can only see it getting better. It's just plain fun. Not having to base your play time around mob respawns doesn't hurt >.>!

Testing out my pull stigma that i get at 22 called Stunning Strike.

Elyos side of the Abyss. It's a huge PVP zone where 2 factions and a 3rd NPC faction duke it out.

Due to constant bitching and complaining from everyone's favorite french Canadian that i don't talk about him enough on here, i went and dug up some old pics from 2005. Some of these are shitty quality and clearly not as many as i'd wish i could find. I blame you and everyone else for not taking many pics of what you and almost everyone considers the golden era of the game. Some of these are Bast's accomplishments and some are DarkLegacy's.

1st KV kill on Shiva
1st Cerberus kill on Shiva 

1st Jorm on Shiva

1st  NA Dynamis Xarca

If i recall correctly 2nd Tiamat kill after a 16 hour marathon by Xtreme

1st Barone bodies

 Rev mail twins.  Remember when WHM was your only job? Mr. Main WHM!

1st Hauteclaire across all servers -

Bast getting his ridill wearing questionable hear. I'm embarrassed and you should be too.

Panic ensues and a rare moment at that from Mr. Cool. Getting Joytoy used to be a big deal. And holy shit the Panther mask era was hot.

Last but not least, Armada. I recall being in an intense merit party and all of a sudden screaming begins. You left and i had no idea what the fuck was going on. Later on i heard, Pyl went 1/11 you lucky fucker.

The infamous Dark Ixion pic. I've yet to see this beaten and this was before Bravura. 2800 baby.

The wisest thing Bastilla has ever said.

I've been reading forums a lot lately while waiting on the next beta weekend for Aion. I came across this one post full of idiots that used to be on Shiva a few years back. Seems they're on Gilgamesh now, being the same idiots they were then. I realized what i don't miss at all about FFXI. I also understand that kids will be kids and that they need attention, but man Shiva turned into a shit hole after them.

I often was asked why my linkshell never spoke in /say. If you read that idiotic thread then you'll understand. Having to put up with that crap for years i think just made me thick skinned. I assume anyone talking to me on a game is a 15 year old pisswad, and i hate 15 year old pisswads.

That's not to say that we didn't have some utterly moronic and extremely idiotic nights on our Vent. Probably the most fun i've had on FFXI. I couldn't imagine playing without Vent. Which reminds me, Khalil fix Vent damnit. Oh and Khalil, i saw a Dominos delivery car again today :p Or how about the snowball story? I have enough stories for 2 life times. So many fun moments i can't remember them all, but here goes some.

  • Khalil refusing to use push to talk and us hearing everything.
  • Khalil's mom coming to visit him and yelling at him on vent.
  • Jon afking to get a soda out of the freezer and then getting a call 30 min later saying he's at Taco Bell.
  • Katrisha never answering a question directly.
  • Jack not knowing what DP stood for and thinking it was "doggy pounce".
  • Retrace wars.
  • Bastilla interviewing a new applicant on vent while Jack and i are trying to fuck with him in party chat.
  • "Wait who's on chainspell stun? Fuck it just go, someone will stun".
  • Jack exping drunk and explaining "squirting 101".

Cap was raised to 20 this time so we got to have some fun for 5 days. All i can say is that i'm having fun so far and i can only see it getting better once more friends start playing upon release. Hit a wall at level 17 for a bit as we ran out of quests that we could do without a healer, so we just grinded a bit. Once the game is finally released, i think they fixed the exp for those quests a bit. Templar is slow at low levels, as to be expected, so grab an Assassin or Gladiator friend and go to town. Provoke is ridiculous hate btw. Took some screenshots - keep in mind my PC stinks so these are the lowest setting possible.
