I use to play ffxi hardcore since year 1 ps2 days I loved it then I switch to xbox 360 and I pretty much stopped once that was shut down like most of my friends. I've played lots of games since but I haven't found anything like 11. Hell ffxiv is a decent game but nothing like 11. Anyways I'm rambling here.. so I want to try 11 now I know it's not how it used to be but I'd like to try and get into it. I was originally from Fenrir server but once my friends stopped playing I was surrounded by mostly Japanese players which is fine but communication is a ***, I'm now on Asura. I have basic 119 gear. when I logged on last night while I was excited I was so lost and had no idea what I should be trying to do. I look at the AH and I see weapons in the hundreds on millions gil range which was hard to get back then lol. But yea can someone point me in the right direction on what I should be doing to get decent gear? Any advice would be appreciated thanks

First and foremost, finish Missions, you might hate it, but work solely on progressing on Rhapsodies of Vana'diel. Do as much as you can. Try do some Delve/Skirmish for basic 119 gear, then try group up for Ambuscade and figure out what level/difficulty you are comfortable with and try get the NQ (Normal Quality) gear from there.

With the addition of Ambuscade weapons even the 1st stage weapon is a decent starter you might like. Ambuscade armour/weapons are free in terms of gil and only cost the currency obtained from Ambuscade called Hallmarks and Gallantry. Gallantry is only received when you party up with other people, trusts do not count.

I don't play much myself anymore, but if i'm online and actually there hit me up and i'll help you get started.

You don't really buy 119 stuff on the auction house, it's all rare ex mostly.

You can easily farm gil if you want to by doing dynamis etc and then paying mercs for drops though, they aren't even all that expensive really.

Best thing you can do though is join 2 linkshells, put them both on at once.

Check linkshell npc

Well the 119 weapons on the ah look good but they're really expensive atleast on asura. i'll look into the rate/ex stuff. Oh I forgot about the LS npcs. I'll have to check out if there are any up when I get on. I really appreciate all the help.

Look up returning player guides on YouTube. CloudChief has some extremely helpful videos for returning players. I don’t mind helping you gear if I’m on and have time, which is often. Ruaumoko has great job guides as well.

You could definitely return and not need to purchase any gear off AH at all. I wouldn't be too concerned with gil unless you want to do a relic/mythic/emp weapon.

Watch out for Superior Rankings on gear as well. When I first came back, I got rid of most of my gil on gear from the AH that crushed what I currently had. Then, only to find it I had to have job points and be a certain rank to wear them, so had to wait to sell. Just a note.
