It has been.... maybe as long as a year since I played last. I got to the urge to play, found the expansion for on the cheap, hell I even picked up the 360 version. I logged in, found myself in the Valkerie Dunes. I figured out that when last I played I had been leveling a sub-job that is level 17. I aggrod a Lizard. Ended up getting my ass handed to me. What is puzzling is I can't seem to find ANYTHING that has been reduced on my character. No lost XP points. Doesn't look like my magic got leveled down or anything. Looks like I got knocked back to the dude with the flag and I am ready to go against the lizzard again. Tell me that FFXI didn't drink the cool-aid and take away all repurcussions to getting killed. Tell me it isn't so.
