Considering return to ffxiFollow

I am a former hardcore ffxi player who hasn't played since the Chains of Promethia expansion was new, nearly 9 years ago! Anyhow, I'm considering making a casual return just to check it out but am a little concerned leveling for new players will be nearly impossible and I don't want to pay to walk around a ghost town. Whatcha think people, should I come back? I honestly think the time I spent in ffxi was the best video game experience I've ever had and have missed it every since I left. Any responses will be greatly appreciated.

I was the same as you. I played tons the first two years of the game but stopped sometime after CoP. I actually returned to the game and played some this past year. They have made the game really soloable now and you could be 99 in a week. Sadly though the game has lots all its charm for me with none of my old friends still playing.

It was fun seeing all the old zones again but at the same time depressing because they are all ghost towns. Honestly, if you have a long weekend and can get the ultimate version with all the expansions I say it is worth it. You probably won't be playing much again though unless you can get some rl or online friends to play with. Even though you can solo so many things the game was really built to be played with others.

At peak times sometimes you will see over 1000 people logged in but I feel like at any given time there are probably only a couple 100 truly active players playing and the rest just afk in Jeuno and the other new city I can't remember the name of.
