I was on Reddit when I came across a post. I did not contribute as I can't really say I've played for a long time or had many interactions with others on the server/data centre. What I can say though, is that I found this really useful and would like to create some awareness about it.Mari's guide to Japanese DCs
Though I'm sure there is a sizable English speaking community on the Japanese DCs, this may still prove useful if any of you wish to... venture out of your comfort zone I suppose XD
I realised that soon, I would have been playing FFXIV for almost 1 year. Though I had to stop for a while when my wife gave birth in August, it's been a joy to play though the story and the game at my own pace. There are many distractions from the Main Story Quest but I think I am making good progress =P
@Yabu Highball - Thank you! Playing this game has been a welcome relief from work and I don't feel pressured to rush all the way to the end.
@Mari Anne - Yes, finding time can be challenging sometimes. I usually only play late at night when everyone else is asleep XD but I'm not complaining! She has been a gem =)
