    Haha, yeah, I set up the original OCAU Linkshell, but forgot to promote anyone before I left :p

    Also, Pigz, If you're playing once I'm back, I'm happy to help you through any of the dungeons I've already cleared. I play a tank (Lv50 Warrior) and a Healer (Lv 40 White Mage). :)

    How's HW treating you? Much of a gear grind before 60? My WAR is in Artifact Armour and a bit of Darklight gear, so I hope I'm not going have too much trouble with post-2.0 story content?

    I have seen people say they had success by spamming character create right before servers are about to go down for maintenance or as soon as they come back up from maintenance.

    The trick with tonberry is to get up early. If you don't create early in the morning you can't create at all

    I've made a character on Valefor, currently lvl 16/6 Archer/Thaumaturge for Black Mage.

    Just so that I can get used to things.

    Yeah, will try before and after maintenance. It's at 4pm AEST?

    I think its 4-8pm but remember servers often come up early and the savage progression raiders will be waiting.

    Managed to make characters on Behemoth this morning just in case I cannot get onto Tonberry before/after maintenance.

    Will keep trying Tonberry though regardless.

    UPDATE: LOL, managed to get a character made on there right on 4pm.

    HW is going slowly lol. I was in CT gear and when I first went to Sea of Clouds the first mob whalloped me hardcore lol the mobs in the new zones hit far harder than the old ones

    That said when you start levelling it gives you good gear straight away so it won't take you long to get geared up.

    In some zones flying seems mandatory. Churning mists for example there were some quests I couldn't get to at all as I couldn't fly and in order to fly you have to go find the Aether currents which are hidden all over the zone (you have a compass to help locate them) and some of them you gain through quests. So it takes a while of running around and questing to fly. It's not like WoW where you just pay a few thousand zone and suddenly you can fly in all zones. You have to earn it for each zone which is good but a pain at the same time

    Have archer to lvl16 and up to "It's Probably Pirates" in quest line, where I have to use Duty Finder to enter Satasha.

    Didn't get a group, so changed over to Thaumaturge lvl8 atm.

    Did some gathering.

    Thinking of levelling Conjurer or Arcanist for a self heal. Pretty overwhelmed atm:)

    What server are you playing on? if Tonberry you MUST make sure you have all languages selected. If you stick with English only you'll queue for hours and hours on end. If you have Japanese selected you'll get japanese players. Downside is most of em don't speak english but your queues go from a few hours to 10mins or so

    I've found half the JP players select English anyway :/

    DNX ended up partying with me and we ran through. I was a WHM, so we got in very quickly :)

    So how are we all going in game? The thread kind of died back :(

    I'm working through Pre-HW story missions before buying the expansion and having fun :) Also levelled White Mage to 45 as an alt :) So if anyone needs a healer/tank for pre-50 content, let me know :)
