Valkurm Dunes :D



on top of that I know this sounds mean but its the truth...most experianced parties dont want a non-subjobed war in a party with them. Consider it part of the first party experiance ;)

if it helps any go to gelshba outpost and solo there cuz its easy and dont have to worry about a party.

Apparently it's better to solo to 18/20 anyways with the new extremely awesome signet buffs n_n

I wouldnt know though.

It's hard at first and it happens to all of us but you just got to keep at it. My first Dunes party really sucked but the next one was great. Look for a few things when you join a party: maximum of 2 level gap, the leader is above rank 4, party has white mage or experienced other mage, and the tank is not a subless warrior. Also make sure you are using an axe or great axe, because although swords at the level for warrior aren't much of a difference, it will show other members that you understand your job's strengths. Good luck!

Be a bard, it's repetitive when in a party.

but OMFG it's effortless and people adore you xD!

He can't be a bard because that's his first character.

Anyway, I invite people without subs because I still remember when I was without one.

He can work towards it :3

edit: and yes, Most good hearted people will do that in Valkurm as long as you are Level 18 or lower.

Valkurm Dunes is noobville. Just try to put up with it until you reach Qufim Island, which is at Level 20. From that point on, it gets better.

Avoid the Dunes and solo untill you are 18 then get help for your sub job, and do it all over again.

Honestly, the Dubes is a mission in itself to get a party, its impossible and I refuse to even go there.

There's a reason why everyone that goes in the dunes comes out bleeding and thinking about quitting FFXI c.c Consider this the ultimate test.

Litterally, if you can survive the mass of stupidity and noobism in the dunes, you're set.

I don't get how people can stand soloing till level 20. D: So boring to squat down to heal all the time, which will probably happen a lot if you're a sub-less warrior.

and I like people that are new to the game, so I often invited them too.

Blu was fun to solo all the way to 40, but I wouldn't want to try that with War...

Dunes aren't that bad, just a few idiots ruin it. Just have to keep trying.

PLD can cure itself and is pretty good soloing at that level, so I just brought loads of Melon juice, rarely needed to heal.

lol my most memorable moment from the dunes was when I was in a party with this DRK who said that if we wanted to be in his party we had to let him tank.. needless to say he phailed miserably :/

That must have been epic. I wish I was there.
