Server doesn't matter unless you have someone you want to play with. I'm on Alexander, but it looks like Pandemonium or Midgardsormr is the place to go if you want to play with EoFF'ers.

For people who like thieves...well...play thief.

No best class, all classes have their use. Read up on wiki.ffxiclopedia.org or ffxionline.com about the classes and try out the ones you think you'll enjoy the most.

Thief is a starter job so all you have to do is sign up to play it!

Ranger and ninja are advanced jobs. You need to unlock them, and the level requirement for the quests that unlock them is level 30. That's probably for the best too, as ninja and ranger are rather expensive jobs to play, and you probably wouldn't be able to fund it well enough if it was your first job.

Me and Del Murder are on Pandemonium and Ouch! and Omecle are gonna join us there soon. I don't think Midgar is heavily populated with EoFFers anymore. There's another server that has several EoFFers on it I think, but I can't remember which one.

I am ashamed you forgot good old me ><.
I play Thief and I must say, it is lots of fun but very slow in the beginning.
And the other two jobs are well...expensive.
If you need a THF mentor, I will def. help you out.

Er, I didn't say there were EoFF'ers on Alexander. I said I was on Alexander. I am the only one on Alexander. Just me and a bunch of JPs. We meet every afternoon (well, 4AM for me) for tea.

My handle is Liera and I only play weekends
I'm sure Del Murder, Miriel and I can get you through the basics.
THF can be maximized by playing mithra but I find for RNG and NIN, elvaan are the best but really that is all up to you.
We need to start a EoFF linkshell, for serious

I need to start a mule on one of these servers just so I can bug some people in real time.

As for jobs to be, I say go Galka Dancer, or try Puppetmaster. =D I love all the jobs that are against the norm. The newer jobs are much more fun, though slightly gimped, in my opinion.

Though I say play a job that fits your playing style. Or better yet try them all out to 20 and see if you like it.

As far as THF goes, expect to pull and do meh damage for a while. The good news is 75 THF/NIN full evasion gear is nearly untouchable.

what we need to do is something like the meetup in real life...lets get EVERYONE that plays FFXI on here at the same time and do stuff...make guilds n such(referring to RF online not WoW)
We will make sure that everyone is afraid when they see the letters...EOFF

Aww, I'll miss you two. Good luck on Pandy though. If I didn't have the people and responsibilities keeping me on Midgard, I might would transfer.

I'm on Pandy too! How was that forgotten? This makes a potential 6, which can be considered as "enough" for a small LS. This will be okuntil the other EoFFers scattered across other servers come to pandy as well.
Although I have to admit, past year or so I was more of a FFXIer than an EoFFer...

Considering that my responsiblities include an entire sky LS, I don't think that would be possible. Maybe one day though (doubtful, but possible).

You could fit an entire Sky LS in Pandy, we're small.

It costs $25USD to transfer your characters (you can transfer up to 16 at once I think). And they have to stay on the server for 90 days.

If only they merged Midgard and Pandy together... :D

Well last night I figured out that I cant solo the orcish scouts as a lvl 4 theifXD...so Im going around town doing some missions and getting some money so I can get better armor n such(it doesnt help that only 1 out of 10 people on when I am can speak english and only 1 out of 20 of them will help me when I have a question)

You should upgrade your equipment at level 7 to leather gear. Don't need to at level 4, remember to Check (CTRL+C) every enemy you're going to fight, you should stick with either Easy Prey or Decent Challenge as a THF in early levels.

Ultimage

Ome gave some very good advice, now allow me to give a little more. Keep Signet on at all times for the crystal drops and Conquest Points (CP) it gives you. The CP will be useful later on and the Crystals will make you decent gil early on selling stacks to the AH. Also, never, ever, drop a Beastmen Seal if you can avoid it. These are used later on for battles for useful items. Many of us dropped many seals in our noob days, don't make the same mistakes we did.

Masamunemaster
05-09-2008, 06:53 AM
yeah Im sticking with Forest Hares since I get like 100xp a kill from them:D

Ouch!
05-10-2008, 02:25 AM
The 100 exp. a kill is deceptive, trust us. In the amount of time it takes you to kill one of those, you can kill many, many more weaker enemies. While they give less exp. you'll have to rest less often and ultimately you'll be getting more exp./hour by killing weaker enemies faster.

Masamunemaster
05-10-2008, 02:28 AM
it only takes me like 5 hits to kill it...n with my speed it quick

Rostum
05-10-2008, 07:45 AM
Fighting EM's is fairly easy in the first few levels, but once you start to get higher level you'll notice you won't be able to take on a lot of the tougher enemies.

If you're somewhere around level 7-10, you may as well just slaughter a lot of easy prey and throw in the occasional decent challenge. It'll be much quicker and much less of a headache.

But yeah, good luck with it.

You must remember, Decent Challenge (and Easy Prey) will overwhelm you in the higher levels, for now anyway.
