Starting in Vanadiel - 2018 - Maat Fight - FFXI Level Cap 70 Quest


Published October 29, 2018

Continuing our journey in FFXI from scratch requires you to do a series of quests to raise your level cap from 50-99 in intervals of 5 on your first highest job. We used to call these the "Genkai" quests since Genkai means Limit in Japanese and the game originated in Japan in 2001.

In my case (in 2018) I chose to take my Thief job to the level cap of 99 first.  In this video I complete the level cap 70 quest where you had to fight Maat to allow you to get to the previous Game level cap of 75.  It was the final quest pre-Abyssea era and what veteran players were all too familiar with in order to even touch end-game content at the time.  I had a hard time with it in the past but apparently a new mechanic was included if you progressed through the Rhapsodies of Vanadiel questline up to where you received the Key Item "Rhapsody in Umber".  If you have this key item you can fight Maat with the full aid of 4 Trusts of your choice!  Needless to say I was happy to faceroll Maat after years of dying to him over and over.

Video recorded this on October 27, 2018.

This video is part of a continuing series of videos of our journey back to Vanadiel after a 9 year break.  My husband and I were unable to recover our old accounts so we went ahead and started with brand new characters late September, 2018.  This footage is from the Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG) called Final Fantasy XI.

Starting in Vanadiel - 2018 - Starting tips 101: Trusts ROV, ROE


Published October 17, 2018

A collection of tips on how to get started playing Final Fantasy XI on PC.  I've noticed that there are very few videos for new players (or old returning players that are new to this content) and decided to walk you around showing you NPC's that are helpful when first starting out.  I recorded this on October 16, 2018.

In this video I cover Records of Eminence (Sparks, money tips, equipment options, xp gains, bonuses), Trusts (where to get them, how to start getting them and how to use them), Rhapsodies in Vanadiel (helpful storyline that streamlines the process of acquiring useful unlocks for any player both starting and veteran) and show starting NPC's that are useful for a brand new character or even a returning one that has never started this content.

Continuation of our journey back to Vanadiel after a 9 year break.  We were unable to recover our old accounts so we went ahead and started with brand new characters.  Finally got a new account set up and recorded a bit of the first week of play in the Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game called Final Fantasy XI.  I included game footage of our play sessions showing a bit of issues I have with recording the footage. I apologize that the video isn't great.  I'm currently working on a solution.  As of the recording my husband and I are Rank 5 in San d'Oria, got our sub jobs open, our mounts and currently working on LB2!

Going back to Final Fantasy XI: Storytime 2003-2009


Published on Sep 28, 2018

It's the night before I start from scratch in a Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game called Final Fantasy XI.  I reminisce of my previous adventures in the game dating back to the beta of the PC release in North America in 2003 and lament the loss of my character from that era that I stopped playing back in 2009.
