Very useful for the novice,
This review is from: Final Fantasy XI (Brady Games Official Strategy Guide) (Paperback)
I have played this game now for over 2 years and borrowed this guide from a friend for a few synthising recepies.
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.
