Job Update

I can't even remember if I told you all that I was leveling Scholar recently. Well I have, and just hit 75 earlier today. Yay me!

Now that I have more than the basic set of spells from every other mage class, I have to say that Scholar looks like it could be a very fun job. The time limit of strategems and such means careful management of your abilities, and a bit of thought to play effectively.

It was boring as hell to level up until 60, and even then there wasn't much excitement due to the FFXI's playerbase mindset that if you can cast Cure III in any job, your role is always main healing. Thankfully, all of my magic skills are capped due to my other jobs.

So now I'm running around, playing with the various Helix spells just to see what they actually do and if they can serve a real purpose during a non-exp party fight. I'll see what trouble I can get into.

However, there is one thing about Scholar that any future member should be ready for:

You become jailbait. If you're a Mithra, stay away from this job.

I'm now an official member of the Vana'diel Jailbait Society. Granted, I could have joined when I got my full AF at level 60, but I would have been easy prey to all the pedophiles scouting for an easy target. At least now I can get moral support from other members.

Seriously, that's how I feel when walking around in full AF. Like the eyes of Maat models everywhere are watching; eagerly anticipating the moment when I run into a friend and do a /bow motion so they can get a glimpse of the scholar "pants."

I notice it from other people too. Anytime I fall in battle, people run to my backside before casting raise. Necro-pedos. Could it get any worse?

I have to admit, I was so glad when I hit 72. Not because I was that much closer to 75, but because I could wear my seraweels and cover up.

Other than that, yeah...Scholar looks like it will be a lot of fun.

RMT Headquarters

Ever get the itch to do a /sea all [generic RMT name] after you get a /tell? Since we've been getting so many, I decided to start doing that. I found a funny little thing.

Every single one is in Bastok.

Now, I don't think we should go on a crusade to ban every newly created level 1 character aligned with Bastok. Although it would be funny to see a nation on character-creation lockdown. I just find it kind of funny that the nation of Humans, which by all accounts are the most selfish and greedy species that ever existed, is also the nation where the RMT decide to stage their operations.

It just seems fitting, you know?

Old Fashioned Stupidity

I'm going to make a huge assumption here. Yes, I know what assuming does. Still, this assumption is one that I think I can make and get away with.

I assume that everyone who plays FFXI with a PC has been to the internet more than once.

With this assumption, I also assume that everyone who has been to the internet has heard of this little thing called phishing. If they haven't heard of this particular term, I'm fairly certain they've heard of theft, hacking, or other indecent activities that can be done through the net.

So someone please tell me why the hell so many people are getting hacked online in this game? This "new wave" of RMT tells that hounds us all every few minutes to verify our account for suspicious activity makes me laugh. They might as well ask us to go to and enter our information. Yet, people are falling for this head over foot every day.


Do you not pay attention when someone with the name Hadexhhgassfew sends you an in-game tell? Are you not aware that Square-Enix's online game site is, not It doesn't strike you as odd when someone with a non-GM name tells you to visit a site and verify your account?

Any red flags going off when this stuff happens to you? If not, the please go to your PlayOnline browser, delete your account, and download the latest version of solitaire online. As a matter of fact, don't do that. You might download a virus, and lord help you if that happens.
