Hello everyone, I've been playing the game since open beta and have probably met a few people that hang around on here. Things are finally coming to fruition with the introduction of some quality end game content and I'd like to find an LS that is a little more focused around end game content and grinding out jobs.
Since launch, I've belonged to Counting Sheep, Vanadiel Legion (Kind of merged into Public Enemies as players stopped playing due to lack of interest), and the Immortals (Has gone through several name changes and was most recently Public Enemies). All of these are fine LS's but not exactly a place I felt 100% in alignment with the culture of the LS.
I have fun playing for the most part, but fun for me is more achievement based and less casual play social based. I like to level up, I like to acquire that shiny new item, and I like to beat the bad guy without spending hours upon hours failing beforehand. I accomplish these goals by doing research on how much sp mobs, leves, behests, etc. provide after each update so I can determine the most efficient way to utilize my time. I acquire shiny new items and beat the bad guy by utilizing voice communication tools to better strategize with players and communicate with LS members to determine the best way to go about doing things. I like to read and research opinions as they become available through forums and web sites as well.
I work full-time and have a family too. I can't devote hours upon hours to gameplay, but when I do play I like to get stuff done. I dislike logging on for a couple of hours and not making some real progress towards that next rank or acquiring a new item or finishing a quest.
Currently, Magic Emperor (my main) is a 50 GLD and 50 LNC. I'm in the process of raising CON to 50 (currently 40), and have all other combat classes at levels I desired for traits and abilities. 38 CON, 28 MRD, 22 PUG, 22 ARC.
I dual box as well and Yellowcar Queen is currently a 50 THM, 40 CON (currently raising to 50). She also has combat classes at levels I desired for traits and abilities. 20 PUG, 20 LNC, 20 ARC. Originally my girlfriend was going to play this character, but she lost interest and I continued to level the character. It's handy having a second character around and I level faster for it.
In previous LSs I've contributed by running leve parties, grinding parties, and organizing notorious monster runs. I haven't done so after patch 1.18 but prior to the patch I powerleveled quite a few folks in Nawawa Mines to help them get a few jobs from 1 - 20 in a hurry (1 hr and 30 min is what it took generally). I've tried to answer questions when possible, but I tend to ignore some questions that folks should go read for themselves. "What did the patch change?" ... That one tends to irritate me a bit so I keep my mouth shut when I hear it. Ask me how the patch adjusted sp values for levequests and I'll talk for quite awhile because that's a genuine question that needs some research done. I do consider myself to be usually helpful.
I'm not looking for any LS to join at this point. I'm looking for an LS that appreciates a more mature and serious player and encourages research and debate over game mechanics and strategies. I'd prefer an LS with a good set of rules for raids that include mandatory voice chat and a no chatter policy while at critcal points of the raid. I'd like an LS that regularly grinds sp and does leves together. An LS that realizes that more than 1 group is generally going to be required for these types of things and makes an effort to help organize stuff for all ranks and timezones by either doing it themselves or designating others and letting folks know who to get in touch with.
If you are an officer in an LS that is currently recruiting and would like to speak with me at legnth or ask some tailored questions feel free to contact me in game by sending a tell to Magic Emperor. I live in a central standard timezone in the US and am usually on in the evenings going past midnight. If you've read enough from the wall of text this post comprises and would like me to apply at your web site leave the details in a reply and I will do so at my earliest convienence.
