    Returning player looking for direction

    I haven't played in a very long time and I was surprised to find that the admin staff was able to recover my account. I have a character on Lakshmi and I'm finding the zones I used to hang out in are now ghost towns. The auction house is almost empty and I'm worried that maybe this isn't a server I should be on if I want to do anything with other players.

    Should I look at moving to a more populated server or in general are all the servers fairly empty these days? Are there any guilds on Lakshmi or any other server that play casually that would like to have a new player join?

    Hello. Firstly, welcome back!

    Asura is still opened to anyone as it is the busiest server where you will not feel lonely in Vana'diel! There are a plenty of linkshells with different preferences. Good luck!

    Keep in mind, there are bots, RMTs, and Mercs running around and almost no one cares anymore so it's up to you.

    Back in the day I deleted my main to join some friends who I thought were going to stick around. Of course they didn't so my current character only has a few quests done such as the sub quest a few ranks into the nation quests and most of my jobs are 20 and under. Is starting over the best thing to do at this point?

    I don't really reccomend transferring. In the main cities, you will find NPCs called Linkshell Concierges. LSes looking for members can have these NPCs give out pearls and it can help you connect with playters on your server who do stuff.

    I reccomend against transferring to Asura. It's overcrowded and there is disporportionately more cheating/mercing/gilbuying there. While the intent was good, I think things have gotten out of hand and you're better off without the corruption.

    While it can be tricky to find what you need to buy, in many cases people on your server can help you find what you need and clear the content you want to do. By staying where you are, you'll be contributing to the experience of everyone who is there.

    Also, regardless of server, most people are hanging out in jeuno or mhaura these days, and not the main cities.

    In case you do choose to play on a different server, I would say yes, it would make more sense to create a new character if you have no strong connection to, nor much done with the current one (it's not exactly cheap to transfer from one server to another).

    Not sure what you mean by factions. Nations? I can't think of any reason why you should choose one over the other, aside from personal preference. :]
