Does anyone know when the servers getting ready to be merged will be open again to new characters? I just bought FFXI, and I have several friends on Lakshmi, however since it's merging I cannot create a character there.

Just a question i used to play FFXI years ago and it was a game that got me hooked to MMO's thinking about going back and starting all over so the question is how easy is it to group now and also how populated the servers are these days also how hard is it to start all over these days will i be stuck just waiting for the parties or are you able now to solo some of the content.

Generally speaking, finding parties at lower levels is more difficult. However with the announcement that the level cap is increasing, there should be a boon to the always tedious 37-50 range. They have also made improvements to soloing in the form of an hourly quest called "Fields of Valor" which rewards you with experience, gil and "tabs" for completing a list of monster families killed in the particular area. Tabs grant additional status buffs and other benefits like instant transportation to your home nation. At level 60, you can now participate in "Campaign Battle" in the newer (Past) wings of the goddess areas. This rewards you with good chunks of exp and other rewards, and can be used to effectively solo to 75, albeit a little slower than a party would. It can also net you some decent, free gear sets for various jobs, not the best gear, but quite good. Server populations are still holding fairly well, and after the version update mergers, they should be quite healthy. Some of the higher populated servers are reopening to transfers as well.
