group news - final fantasy xi
FFXI? I know, it's been a while - 10 years to be exact since our group was active! But whilst doing a bit of server cleanup recently we've stumbled on some old group videos that we made back in 2006, and we've even put them live on our new Final Fantasy XI Group Videos Page! That's right, actual video content - we must be getting more modern or something...
Our thanks to BlackDove for filming all of these at the time, and they're a very cool look back into our groups of old. Feel free to take a look and enjoy!
Back from the realms of inactivity, a few of us have decided to dust off our copies of Final Fantasy XI again and reactivate the linkshell.
You'll find us running around Asura re-acquainting ourselves with the game and dipping into the new Wings of the Goddess expansion pack which makes the game much more casual friendly and provides the opportunity to avoid those ever frustrating Group Waiting times for the higher levels.
If you want to come back to the game, or even start it fresh, you're welcome to join us. Drop by the Group Forum and let us know and we will sort you out with a World Pass and a linkpearl.
During a long period of maintainance today the July version update for Final Fantasy XI finally arrived.
The update adds a new region, new Notorious Monster Battlefields, new Job Traits and Abilities, and more, along with many tweaks and improvements. It can be downloaded now through the PlayOnline Viewer.
It should be noted that the update did not contain the popular Chocobo Raising ability nor the new Aht Urghan missions promised due to extended testing requirements, these will follow seperately in several weeks. Specific dates can be found in the patch notes linked below.
Full patch notes for the update can be found here.
After a very fun and successful few hours fishing last Saturday the FFXI group have decided to startup a weekly fishing event for the group.
All group members are welcome to come along be it for relaxation, profit, or skill-ups, and naturally the chance to socialise with other members of the group.
If you want to participate in the event just bring your character along to Windurst Woods between 1 and 2PM GMT with your fishing gear and plenty of bait.
