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.
