News Flash posted on Final Fantasy XI. Introducing the "Character Reactivation Service"! (05/27/2009) Up until now, adventurers wishing to make a comeback from early retirement have had to wait for the limited-time event, the Welcome Home to Vana'diel Campaign, to swing around. But due to popular demand, from today onwards, we are proud to announce that this long-serving campaign has been succeeded by a permanent feature: the "Character Reactivation Service"! Unlike the Welcome Home to Vana'diel Campaign of old, no bonus items will be distributed to users of this new service. However, we feel that this will be more than compensated for by the fact that your retired heroes can be restored to active service whenever the itch for adventure overwhelms you! Seven glorious years have passed since adventurers began striking out for the far reaches of the ever-evolving realm of Vana'diel. What exciting changes has the world undergone since you last set foot upon it? There is only one way to find out! Learn more about the Hero Revival Service here.
