Good Morning / Afternoon / Evening, wherever you are. I guess you could say I'm technically a returning player but seeing as I played briefly about 10years ago and have recently started an entirely new account... I think it would be fair of me to call myself a new player :)
I'm clueless and would love to have some friends on Bismarck. I logged on for the first time the other day and started killing bees & worms, only to run across a high level Red Mage who immediately suggested I follow him, inteigued I followed to what I think was Gusgen Mines and he proceeded to help me power level with a huge group. I wasn't aware this was what would happen but now I'm level 27 with no gil and only my starting gear / onion rod and I'm completely useless in the areas that I should now be playing... I was killed by a snipper yesterday.
Not necessarily looking for handouts, I remember the game being tough but if I had friends or a linkshell it might give me more reason to stick around, at the moment I kinda feel like there's nothing for me to do. My character name is Karandrass, I'm in Bastock on Bismarck (Obviously) so please feel free to send me a tell, I'd love it!
Alternatively, just some advice would be great. Picture yourself as a completely new player, the game has little in the way of a tutorial. I've been boosted to 27 and then left haha. I have no gold, no gear, no weapon skill & no idea / experience of what to do. I thought I'd head to Valkurm & maybe do my subjob quest but with my level 1 gear and skill levels I can't even handle the mobs that check 'too weak to be worthwhile'.
Help appreciated. Many thanks,
Mike / Kara / Karan / Karandrass :)
