Hey Spellbook here and I found a Final Fantasy XI private server that is free to play and I believe is up to date with all patches and expansions as well. I have been talking to Sam about this and wanted to see if anyone else would be interested in maybe just messing around in Vanadiel from time to time. One thing I know for certain is that you get 4x the ammount of xp per kill on this server and there are a few other things as well. I am not sure if this works with Windower or if you can use plug ins on this server but the info on it is here:
This server is used as a test server. Users should not expect to play on this server without issues or crashes. If you are looking for a server to call home, choose from a server below.
This is simply a server to test things on.
Auction house is populated with items for 100gil regularly.
Starting gil is 4 million.
Character run speed is 1.5x.
All classes start at level 1.
Experience rate is 1.89x.
