Seekers of Adoulin Expansion

Ohsnap! This news surprised me, an actual expansion for FFXI after so much time! If they'd only upgrade that graphic engine a bit :S

i am totally surprised. i just ran across this too and came over here to post about it.
you know, at the very end of the video, they say for Windows and Xbox360. no mention of Playstation2... it might not be supported for this expansion.

biggest surprise: new jobs.

other key words i saw: tartarus, yggrdrasil, an ancient king, twelve great houses, areiela, seven native warlords, the sacred city of adoulin, ---zowa in the north, ---rk overlord
some words i could not fully read as the video just moved on.

i'm surprised they didn't put all their resources into making ffxiv better. i thought ffxi was done. maybe they don't quite have enough confidence that ffxiv will take off and would like to see people continue to play (and pay for) a known product for a while yet.

Wondering why more than ten years after its release Square Enix is still building upon the Final Fantasy XI universe with a new expansion pack? CEO Yoichi Wada provided a big clue during a speech at the Vana Fest 2012 event yesterday.

As reported at Famitsu.com, Wada said of FFXI during his opening remarks, "Looking at profitability, it's the top of all past FF games."

Wada also noted that if you add up the total play time of all currently active FFXI players, you'll reach a figure of over 200,000 years.

I got a message from Pisze on Facebook about this, which instantly piqued my curiousity so I jumped onto the PoL site.
Video didn't really catch my attention as much as I wanted it to, but I think it's because I know it's just going to be the same old game, with a slightly different twist.

If they'd done like you said Zech, and maybe upgraded the gfx engine, or ... anything really, I'd be more interested than i am.

I am tempted though. The thought of feeling like a total newb, wandering into a strange city or cities, and actually feeling trepidation to wander outside for fear of what you might bump into is a strangely compelling one.

I may return after all.

I duno, I still am having loads of fun right now lol. Not as much as I could be since everyone from the ls left, but still... ;/ I just now finally did some voidwatch. It's pretty fun, but can be time consuming if you do more than 1 tier in a night lol. I have blm, nin, mnk, pup, drk now too and matt has whm, drg, blu, sam, and thf lvled.

if i was to come back i'd need to join some people who are doing actual events and quests and missions and not just dick around with xp-fest like i mostly did during the second half of 2011. if it was all old people returning to the game to play with, that'd be cool, but otherwise i would join up with an existing group who is going that stuff.

I just started playing again, mostly out of bordum but was happy to see the plans for a new expansion, and I've been having a pretty good time.

If you want a group that actually does stuff, you guys could always join up with the LS I'm in, I'm sure they'd happily have any of you. It's run by Falon if any of you remember him and has some other familiar Diabolos faces in it.

Their main event is Arch Dynamis Lord, the new Dyna-Xarc boss. But since I joined about 2 weeks ago, I've also fought Odin with them (in preparation for Odin II), done all the city Voidwatch (in preparation for higher tier fights), and yesterday we fought Pandemonium Warden twice, which was awesome.

I'm sorry, I shouldn't tempt.

FFXI is once again hindering my plans to do more productive things, like cooking, cleaning and going to the gym.


To be fair before returning I was mostly just watching tv instead of doing those things, but FFXI makes it even less likely.

I'm actually updating the client right now. What puts me off is that I really don't know anyone ingame anymore.
