Kiki, I think I'm gonna start getting back into some endgame events. I haven't finished leveling everything quite yet, but I'm a tad burnt out on it.

I am not even sure what end game I want to do, but at the moment I am most interested in gearing up my SAM.

Can you list me the endgame shells you are in, what days/times they do runs and if they are recruiting please?

All times are Eastern

TheUltimates: Dynamis, Wednesday and Saturday 8:30pm-whenever
Currently open to all jobs but THF, PLD, RDM: http://www.tudynamis.com

They also have a Limbus shell, TheNewUltimates, run by a great guy you may have heard of - Erock. Sunday and Thursday 8:30pm

Eminence: http://eminencels.net/forums
Currently "not closed" for applications, but they're being pretty fussy on the applications. Doesn't hurt to apply if it seems to suit you. They have Dynamis, Limbus, and Salvage sister shells as well.

Mandatory events (if online, expected to be present):
Tuesday: 8:30pm Einherjar
Thursday: 7:30pm - 10/11 various planned events (sky, sea, ZNMs, KSNMs, Ouryu, Bahamut V2, ToAU kings)
Saturday: 3:00pm Einherjar
Saturday: 4:30pm - whenever various planned events as on Thursday

HNM camps at various times. Dark Ixion, Sandworm, and King Vingaroon are popular.

I'd have to change my current sleep schedule, I'll talk to my wife.

Does anyone know of any end-game shells that start runs around 3 to 5 pm EST?

Ok, I submitted an application for Limbus. I decided just for that as I don't want (or my wife doesn't want) to commit too many days a week for FFXI events.

Good choice. Limbus is a lot of fun, and a much smaller time commitment than Dynamis. Runs are typically around an hour, varying from sub-30 minutes to around 90 depending on the zone.

I miss aspects of it, but after a year and a half I was both burnt out from running it and ready to try other things.

Yea, I loved Limbus and would actually get back into it. I think you'll realyl like it Vawn. It's like a fun, snap shot of everything that's fun about FFXI.

Woah, wait a minute. Back up here. FFXI is fun now? When did that happen?

Nah, the most fun way to play is to log on once a month and change the Linkshell message.

Hey, we all spend our $15 bucks a month in our own ways.

Anyone know anything of VexForever Dynamis linkshell? I decided to join them. I would have liked to join TU, but their lotting rules didn't seem as beneficial for my situation. TU does not let you choose different lots for different zones, but lets you choose one job and you are stuck on that job until relic is 5/5. Most relic pieces are garbage, so with 16, soon to be 18 75 jobs, this did not work well for me.

A lot of relic isn't claimed by main lotters (they already have it), so you'd get tons as JOB75. But the rare pieces, like thf gloves, pld surcoat, and rdm hat would be more difficult to get your hands on.

That's a good point, I didn't think of it that way. Maybe it would work out. Honestly, I would rather join TU with people I know over this other LS, the times being the same.

Would it be ok for me to change my application from a Limbus app to a Dynamis app? I don't really have time for both now and realized I can buy what I need from Limbus (mainly Brutal Earring).

Poor Erock, he was looking forward to having you join Limbus. Are you sure you don't need AF+1 for SAM and Homam for PLD/DRK/THF/BLU/DRG?

If you want to change it to/add Dynamis, reply to your post with the Dynamis application "form", since the questions are a bit different.

Eventually, but I feel there is more to gain from Dynamis at the moment.

Same, but for some reason I find myself still doing Dynamis and have left Limbus. What's wrong with me?
