Considering it's been a week I'd assume you already joined. Wish I'd have seen this before, would have suggested Famfrit or any non-legacy.

That's a legacy server for you. I was on Hyperion, forgot to reset home poine (I know, dumb move), and god forbid if I asked for a raise because I ventured into an area where I bit off more than I could chew. Yeah, the replies were less than cordial.

Yeah, happened to me once in Coerthas, had an astrologian about 5 feet away from me, and I asked them for a raise, they proceeded to talk down to me like I was retarded for losing a fight to a normal mob in a zone (I was fighting a Polar bear, then that yak fate popped up and I got swarmed and murdered) they never raised me, and I had to homepoint back to Ul'dah. I never set my homepoint anywhere but Ul'dah, I have the income to teleport wherever the hell I wish.

I try to remember to set my HP to wherever I'm spending a good chunk of time, or at least set up one of the half cost points. This is something I miss from 11 is the camaraderie, having that WHM that is passing through throw a random cure or protect just because they can.

It's less frequent that I run into a douchebag on Famfrit, it happens occasionally, but for every one on Famfrit there's about 100 on Hyperion.

Hmm... only thing about dying in 14 is it doesnt really have much weight behind it, unless you are damn near broke and teleporting back to the location will break the bank 99% of the time its easier and faster to home point and teleport back.

What i mean to say is unlike 11 its easy to get around so dying isnt as progress resetting in terms of getting around like in 11, additionally there is no exp penalty either.

That said when possible i try to raise people but they often just home point anyways so meh.
