5.VERSION HISTORY
===================

This is the Version History of FINAL FANTASY XI: ONLINE - FAQ | VER 0.4: ENGLISH VERSION:

	===================
	VERSION 0.4
	===================
	This update is a relly big one!
	As I said, I added Weapons.
	And I did also fix some text bugs and wrong spelling, such as anoying tabs and stuff!
	Sorry, but I did'nt add the Bazaar section, it will hopefully come in the future.
	I've written about Advanced Jobs, the Battle System, Weapons/Armors, Weapon Skills,
	Enemy List and some Frequently Asked Questions.
	I've also updated the Jobs, where I wrote some new stuff.
	The Weapon information is'nt much, but it's something.
	I still looking for more Weapon information.
	I've got some mails telling me to write about the battle-system,
	I hope you'll know better about the battle-system now.
	Some of you also mailed me, telling me that the FAQ was good, Thank you very much! O_o


	===================
	VERSION 0.3
	===================
	This time I've fixed some new intresting reading.
	I added Magic, it's a list over the magic and the effect of each magic,
	both Black Magic and White Magic.
	I've also added the Kingdoms, Locations, Side Activities and Job Abilities.
	Read about what you can do in the Mog House, how to fish etc.
	But I'm still waiting for some WEAPON information, please, if you know
	something about the weapons in Final Fantasy XI, please contact me.
	I hope this version enjoyable, because I think that I wont update it in
	a while, because it will take some time to gather information
	about the weapons.
	===================

	===================
	VERSION 0.2
	===================
	I've been adding the starting stats for the jobs, and
	written a Thanks list.
	I've also written a little bit of the AUTHOR, but not much.
	===================

	===================
	VERSION 0.1
	===================
	I've just started!
	I've been writing about the story and characters.
	I've also got some more information about the jobs, that I will write in a later version.
	The design is done and I'm waiting for my research team to get some
	more information.
	===================


===================
6.NEXT VERSION
===================
In the next version, you'll read about more of the Weapons and Enemies.
I will also add "THOUGHTS", where I'll write my own thoughts about the game.
I'm going to add some more FAQ questions to.
Sorry, I did'nt add the Bazaar section in this update, but it will be added in the future.
Oh yeah, I added a big section about the battle-system, I hope you'll understand it.
Well, the situation is this, I don't really know what to write about! O_o
So if you want me to write about something special, please send me a mail.

These are the starting stats for every race:

          Hume Elvaan TaruTaru Galka Mithra
      ---|----|------|--------|-----|------|---
      STR| 8  |  9   |   7    |  9  |  8   |STR

      CHR| 6  |  6   |   6    |  5  |  5   |CHR
      ---|----|------|--------|-----|------|---
          Hume Elvaan TaruTaru Galka Mithra


	====================
	13.1.HUME
	====================
	This race is probobly be the most popular one, one of the reasons is
	that it's the most versatile race, another reason is that many people
	want to model their character to look like the PLAYER.
	The HUME's lives in Bastok together with the GALKA's, and one of the
	good things with HUME's is that they can be good in all the jobs.
	I recommend this race to the PLAYER's who's going to switch between
	many Jobs.
       Suggested Jobs: All


	====================
	13.2.ELVAAN
	====================
	This race should be the second popular race after HUME.
	They have more STR, VIT and MIND then the HUME.
	The ELVAAN's lives in the Kingdom of San'Doria, and as one of the
	three *Tank races, this one is probobly the best.
	I recommend this race to the PLAYER's who want's to stand in the
	frontline in battles with a grand sword.         *Tank = Fighter
       Suggested Jobs: Monk, Warrior, Red Mage


	====================
	13.3.TARUTARU
	====================
	The cutest race of them all, looks like midget mouse-cat persons.
	But dont underestimate them because they looks cute, because they
	have enormous magic-power, and they know how to kill someone.
	The TARUTARU's lives in the Nation of Windurst were the magic flows.
	This race is for the PLAYER's who want's to learn a lot of magic.
       Suggested Jobs: Black Mage, White Mage, Red Mage

	====================
	13.4.GALKA
	====================
	This race is big, strong and slow, the opposite to MITHRA.
	One thing that's common with the MITHRA is that you can play with
	only one gender, GALKA PLAYER's can only be male and MITHRA PLAYER's
	can only be female. As I said earlier, the GALKA's lives toghether with
	the HUME's in Bastok. This race is a perfect Tank race, that stands in
	the front-line, just slaying monsters with their two meters swords,
	just because of their high strenght and vitality.
	I recommend this race to the PLAYER's who wants to be big and strong,
	and slay many monsters.
       Suggested Jobs: Warrior, Monk


	====================
	13.5.MITHRA
	====================
	This race is more cat-like than TARUTARU, with their pretty tail and
	their big eyes.
	This race is a little special, because the only gender you can play as
	is female. The male MITHRA's are only NPC's who stays in their
	home-village all the time.
	MITHRA's are very fast, with high DEX and AGI, the opposite to GALKA.
	This race is for the PLAYER who want's to be fast, remember speed can
	be better than strenght.
       Suggested Jobs: Red Mage, White Mage, Thief, Monk, Warrior


====================

Like you're seeing the enemies, you are also seeing the players fighting against them.
And you might be invited to help them.

In a party, you can be up to six players. You can also form an alliance wich gives you the
opportunity to play with eightteen players (three themes).
The one who started the alliance is one leader for the alliance, and there's also a leader for
the different themes. The leaders are marked with dots in front of their names.

When you're going to fight a enemy, you first have to find one. And when you have, press O to bring
up the Action menu.
In the Action menu you'll see some different commands. Attack, Cast Spell, Abilities and Use Items.
When you choose Attack you'll get locked on the target.
Cast Spell will cast a spell, but there is some Casting Time, so it will take some time before the character
casts the spell. And the spell will get canceled if you move or if you get hitted by a enemy.
If you choose to use an Ability, there will be some waiting time before the Ability is getting used, just like
when you cast a spell.
When the attack Lock mode is on, the character keeps on doing a Attack until you tell him/her to stop, or using
a item/ability/magic. This will be executed and the character will start to attack again.
By attacking a enemy from behind, the attack will take more on the targets HP.
When the battle is over you'll get EXP, money and items.

When the theme get's it's items and money, there is to different ways to split it up to the players.
Every player can pick the item it wants, but if someone else also want's to have the same item, the item will automaticly
be delivered randomised to one of the player who want's it.

If you die, you can choose between waiting to be revived or warp to your Mog House.
Every time you die, you'll get a penality, wich takes away some of your EXP (I think it 10% of the EXP you need
to reach the next level).


	====================
	19.2.QONQUEST
	====================
	Every country in Vana'Diel want's to rule other countries.
	Every time you're winning a battle in another country, you're home country will get a point.
	When you're in a theme every member will gain one point for the home county.
	By ruling different zones the zone guards will cast good spells on you every time you're passing them.


====================
18.0.MAGIC

19.0.SIDE ACTIVITIES
====================
Final Fantasy XI offers some side activities.


	====================
	19.1.FISHING
	====================
	By standing next to a river, you can fish.
	All you need is a fishing rod and some bate (ex. little worm, lugworm, shrimp).
	Use the fishing command to start fishing.
	After a while you'll se a message that says "You got something!".
	Fish more to gain fishing levels so you can get more rare fishes.


	====================
	19.2.CHOCOBO
	====================
	In Final Fantasy XI, you can ride Chocobo's.
	For doing this you have to buy a Licence.
	When riding a Chocbo you can dig the ground for items.
	The more you dig the higher "Digging level" you get, and the higher digging level you got
	the more rare items you get.


====================
20.0.WEAPONS/ARMORS
====================
In Final Fantasy XI there is many different weapons, ex. Swords, Bows/Guns,
Staffs etc.
I'll write some information about weapons/armors here.
For the moment I've only got a little information about the weapons, but I will get more
soon. I'll also write a Armor list later.

These are sixteen usual equipment slots:

Primary weapon
Shield slot / Second weapon slot
Head slot
Earring slot
Earring slot
Neck slot
Hands slot
Ring slot
Ring slot
Body slot
Waist slot
Back slot
Legs slot
Feet slot
Range slot
Ammo slot



	====================
	20.1.WEAPON LIST
	====================
	I've got some new information about the weapons, but it's not much.
	But I can promise you, more will come!


            Weapon                  Kind                    Race
      ---|---------------------|-----------------------|--------------|---
         |  Cat Bug            |    Close combat       |      All     |
         |  Bronze Nuckle      |    Close combat       |      All     |
         |  Bronze Knife       |    Short sword        |      All     |
      ---|---------------------|-----------------------|--------------|---
            Weapon                  Kind                    Race


====================
21.0.WEAPON SKILLS
====================
Weapon Skills are useful in Final Fantasy XI.
But Weapon Skills are only for combat.
Every weapon has different Weapon Skills.
To use a Weapon Skill your TP (Tactical Points) gauge has to be over 100%.
Read more about TP at the TP section (19.1.).


	====================
	21.1.TP (TACTICAL POINTS)
	====================
	To use a Weapon Skill, your TP gauge has to be 100%.
	In other Final Fantasy games, you have a "Overdrive" (FFX)
	or "Limit Break" (FFVII), and in Final Fantasy XI you have a
	TP gauge.
	The gauge will increase by getting hitted by enemies.
	The gauge can go up to 300%, the higher the gauge gives more damage to
	the target. But sometimes you will get added effects instead of more damage,
	this depends on which weapon you are using.
	But if you wait to long, the gauge will decrease.


====================
22.0.ENEMY LIST
====================
I've fixed some iformation about the enemies, and what you'll
