    An average REMA is 300-500 million gil to upgrade to max, that's a whole lot of grinding. Many people who make more than one cannot put up with that amount of grinding more than once or twice and so look for faster ways.

    Yes, providing they can find and join an active linkshell where players are engaged in content. The problem is that those linkshells probably have their own set static groups doing content together for years, and are less likely to let a new face into that clique. It can take a significant amount of trust buildup and getting to know said person before that happens.

    But yes, if people do manage to (1) Find an active linkshell and (2) Get in with the clique, then they (in my opinion) will get to enjoy this game in the best possible way - whatever server you are on.

    It's an MMORPG - It is designed for longevity.

    So do you walk everywhere and refuse to use fast travel?

    Point is that REMA are very expensive and so they find the fastest way to make gil to fund them, it's not all RMT (although some are obviously)

    What has getting from point (a) to point (b) got to do with working on REMA?
    Faster travel has always been in the game i.e Outpost warps and chocobos.

    Anyway, the point is that a significant amount of JP sellers are at least one or both of the following:
    1. Using automated third party software (to kill monsters and spam the yell system).
    2. RMT.

    I had one linkshell already despite my own inactivity, and when i pinged a friend to do recruit people for a PvP stream after I set up an Player Event Support event and no one showed up (I do FFXIV pvp streaming and i wanted to show my viewers the old school pvp), suddenly their entire linkshell was in on it and bam, i had another one. reach out to people, use the concierges, /yells, it really isn't that hard to find an LS


    As far as the grinding. I did nearly all of it myself (some friends did give me currency loans to finish sooner but I did repay them ). Yeah, it took a while, but it isn't really that bad these days since old dynamis doesn't have a reentry limit anymore you can grind out currency as long as you want. You can also get a pretty decent amount from ambuscade which everyone is doing anyway, and gain EXP used to be a couple million gil three times a week.

    The point of the grinding is to prolong the games life artifically. It's sad but what else can they do when they refuse to expend resources for this game :/. The only reason you see people with so many now is because literally more than 70% of the population plays more than one character which exponentially increases all their gains for each character they have. SE set up all their events and reward systems so that it benefits people who multi-box characters.

    I hate RMT more then you know.

    but its easy do what vets like me would of done in the 75 days and earlyer find a way to do what you want legit then be come the model for your server on how to do it the right way and be the servers go 2 player to help others.

    remember ffxi at its core is help and be a team player.

    so like i said be the force for good it wont be easy but work it how it works best for the health of your players and your server

    I agree with what you are saying, but the modern generation (on Asura anyway) no longer think like that.
    If somebody asks for help on Asura, they get asked how much gil are they willing to pay for it.

    I do. People helped me when I came in so if there's something I can do to make someone else's experience better I do.
