- Q: How many people actually play on Nasomi?
- A: Nasomi is the largest (by far) FFXI private server. See the most recent Nasomi census (from 2017) here. As of May 2018, there are thousands of unique IPs connecting per day, and up to 1000+ concurrent players online at a time - Nasomi is significantly larger than all other FFXI private servers combined.
- Q: Is that enough for me to find parties?
- A: Yes. There are often multiple parties fighting it out for camping spots in the dunes and elsewhere. A level sync system is available, however, you cannot reach 75 in the dunes. Level sync is adjusted automatically based on the current server population, which helps EU and off-peak players.
- Q: What expansion does Nasomi go up to?
- A: Nasomi is a CoP era server with some ToAU functionality such as the ToAU jobs and ZNMs. It is possible that ToAU will be added in full, but it isn't a priority. Zilart missions, CoP missions, Sky, Sea etc are fully functional, and the endgame scene is competitive and rewarding.
- Q: Are there any jobs that would help me group up easily?
- A: Don't feel pressured into playing any particular role just to find parties. Don't feel as if you need to play a BST because you think you'll never find parties on a job you'd like to play. The server population really is large enough to support partying at all times.
- Q: I'm lost. Where do I meet people? How do I find help?
- A: /shout in any city and you'll find the help you need. You could also join us in naschat and ask some of the players that hang out there.
