I don’t usually post about my adventures in Eorzea here (usually leaving that in Facebook), but I just really wanted to share this bit.
This was the party I got to play with at the final phase of Operation Archon, and I couldn’t be more grateful. They were all of them nice, and kindly understanding of the fact that it was my first time through this dungeon.
As a soloist player (in every MMO I’ve played), I don’t have much experiences being in a party unless a duty commands it. Previous assignments have been… quiet, or I get left behind completely. But these people, even when I got left behind, had at least one person stay with me to guide me back.
They spoke to me, and were encouraging and helpful.
It was honestly my best experience ever of having been in a party. It kind of made me a bit emotional, and the round of applause they gave by the end of the dungeon had me tearing up (while my character danced a fine little jig).
It was a fine end to one of the major battles in A Realm Reborn, and also marked a great end to what became my last day in the Mateus server. (I just moved to Famfrit to be with my best friend.)
Whoever you all were with me in this duty, I thank you all for this wonderful experience and may you all walk ever in the light of the crystal.
