Just a notice for anyone who is wondering why I have disappeared from in game. Theres 2 main reasons I cant play ffxi anymore;
Time is the biggest one, for me to get everything I want to get out of FFXI it requires too big of a time commitment than I am willing to give atm now that I am trying to do well in school. Also I recently realized ffxi kills my time for other games, I am starting to get into FPS again (<3 quake live or TF2, feel free to friends list pearlsea in either game)
Second is I just don't have the friend base in the game anymore coming back after 2 years that justifies the time I put into the game.
Kind of bittersweet leaving, there are still lots about the game I wanted to see, and still enjoyed the hardcore aspect and the world enviroment of the game vs *cough* wow. Old school mmo's are just a unique type of game I cant let my self get dragged into now.
