Anyway, back to FFXI. Pretty much everybody I'd been playing it with has quit. So it's got an almost single player feel to it for me now. I got the expansion and did something I haven't done in years: Walk around a brand new town and talk to everyone, flag a bunch of quests, open up new jobs (that I have no idea if they make decent subjobs or not), and explore the new areas.
Naturally, the first thing I did was skill-up Guard.
The next day I bought the expansion, so the next post will be about that.
