I really love this game. I feel it is important to share some short details with all of my brothers and sisters. It is naturally the final fantasy universe which is the best part. Stories are deep and well developed. You can easily spend hours grinding and still have fun. I cannot say the same of the rest of the mmo's I play. I am always working on my missions to increase rank because I want more of the story. Finding decent people to play with in FFXI is easy. They are the best mmo gamers out there imho. One of the unique things about this game is you can play one class and later add a new class abilities and later another. This means you have no need to create alts to try new skills.One of the early fun experiences is you get to raise a chocobo from and egg (your mount) and he can be born different colors. You are surprised during the birth just like any proud mom or dad. This game has been around forever but never looks its age. I can play the same account on my pc or on my xbox 360. The further out you go in the game the more amazing the landscape and mobs become. They even made it easy to do group battles. Raising money is time consuming but easy because the grind is not a bad grind. Finding groups even at low levels is easy. Anyone out there who is interested join us on the server Leviathan. You won't regret it. If you want to know where the big groups are hanging out it is in Jueno. Just level up a bit and you will get there. Another tip. There is helpful tips on anything you could want to know all over the internet.
