Linkshell Name: Vera Vitae
Starting City: Any, we now have access to all starting cities.
People capable of invites to the Linkshell:
Start your character in Ul'dah or Limsa. Gridania, while beautiful, is not a friendly place for new players.
Pay attention to the cutscenes, as they are not only beautiful but will often give you some indication as to what you should be doing.
You can attempt 8 Regional Leves and 8 Local Leves every 48 hours (a.k.a. quests). If you fail a Leve, it still counts.
Do the full intro quest for your city. It will net you a total of 32,000 gil and give you a fair idea of how several things work. Beware of the emote quest portion, though, as it can be very annoying.
