I decided to get back into FFXIV, not because of the new expansion, but because I miss this game so much, and it’s a perfect stress relief. But getting back into a game you have been absent from for over a year, is not easy…

Where am I?

Seriously, I don’t know where to go… Or, I actually do, but I only remember places by their looks and not by their name anymore. My first hour went with teleporting back and forth to locations I found in my journal, until I decided to just follow up on the main story quest… Jeez!

Who am I?

I already knew that my FC was no more, as a friend from the game informed me of this on Skype when it happened. I also knew that some old members left the server to play somewhere else. But looking at my now updated friend list, I barely know anyone anymore, and I bet they don’t know me either. Trying to get into contact with my friend from Skype has also been futile, for now at least.

What am I?

Okay, I’m a healer, but… I can’t remember my skills and spells anymore, for any of my classes and professions. I decided to level my mining to lvl 60, because I didn’t need much exp, and then see how it went. The thing is that I had forgotten about levequests, so it took a lot longer than it had to, haha! I found a lvl 60 treasure map, so I went into battle as a lvl 60 machinist. Having forgotten all my skills, I just busted my way through the monsters with luck and noobness, and THEN remembered about turrets…

Who are you?

As mentioned in an earlier post, I really hate it when I get random invites, but that’s just one of those things you have to deal with when running around without being in an FC. So I already got an invite, and I got pissed. No message before inviting me, and it wasn’t even someone I knew from back in the days. I expect more of this rude behavior, but I’ll try not to explode…

What’s that dungeon?

I just unlocked a lot of hard modes and whatnot, but I don’t even remember the normal modes for dungeons anymore. Boss tactics? What’s that? Needless to say, that I won’t jump into a healer role again anytime soon for those levels, as I’d just kill everyone.

What now?

Well, I’m quite uncertain as to what I should do now. I’m thinking about just continuing where I left, and level everything that still needs leveling. I guess the best thing to do is going into low lvl dungeons and guildhests, to slowly learn my skills and boss tactics again. As for the expansion, I’m not even gonna buy it right now. For the first 2 parts of the game, I went and spent all my money on the physical collectors editions, which I treasure a lot, but I don’t have that kind of money right now, and frankly, I don’t care that much about it. Right now, I just need to get back into the game, but it’s gonna be a struggle, as I’m not a person who plays daily anymore, or even that much at all. Wish me luck?
