This book is very detailed and provides all the information you require on jobs, classes, hunt locations, areas to go and how to kill certain bosses, it covers a wide area of items and techniques used in the trade. Its a great companion to the game and will get beginners started, it also provides brief tutorials on how to get to a certain level and the places to go to achieve that, since the game is growing fast and players are reaching higher levels, it may be difficult for new players to enter the game due to this factor.
This book will make sure that you get to an adaquate level so that you can be a great companion to other players in their hunts and accomplishments.
Great book but it does get out of date quite quickly, this book is ideally for the newbie's entering the game apposed to the intermediate and experts who may find their memory and experiences alot better than this published material.
In short, buy this book if you have just started playing the game or are about to. Do not buy it if you consider yourself to know the game basics already. Good guides to more difficult aspects of the game can be found easily enough online.
I must however point out the several downfalls:
It is limited (as most are guides are) to level 50
It does not include anymore than the basic quests
Does not include any of the new expansion packs or any information pass rank 5
However it is not all bad to be said about it, if you are below level 30 and have just started and need help with a few pointers then this book could be for you. However to experience what FFXI I believe that you should really take this time at the beginning to explore the world and learn from your mistakes otherwise you may find it harder later on when you have to party with the pros. My advice is to join a good Linkshell as they will be more valuable to you than any guide.
This book has been invaluable in beginning the game, but you'll find that the best way to learn is by talking to others!! however if the book was updated with the Additional "Chains of Promathia" content i wouldnt hesitate buying it again!
if you have it or are wanting to buy it, this book can be a great help if you dont already have a large linkshell
buy buy buy
it walks you through the earlier missions and tells you important locations of NPC's and items
great for any talents like smithing etc
a must get for anyone who wants to no FF XI in depth
