Start over. The entire game is $9.99 right now. Everything is easy mode compared to 5 years ago and you could accomplish all you did back then, and more, in a couple weeks. You could waste weeks messing with SE trying to recover something only to never see it again, and it sounds like that might be the position you're in.

Juan has at least some progress (although I much more casual than when you and I played together). But starting over would be pretty equal to where you were, sadly. Even things like getting Captain rank take little effort and skill these days.

I lost my phone with my one time token after a 9 month break and got it back in no time. Search the faq on SE's account site and you will find it. I wish I remembered specifics, but I don't, sorry. I just remember it wasn't that hard to sort out and i believe i handled it all using their chat option. Basically after you verify who you are, they remove the one time password option from your account, which allows you to login with just your SE account name and password.

Missions are still a time sink, but less so than in the past. I also started over just prior to Adoulin release. Yes, it's worth it.

for shiggles, I leveled a job on my alt from 1-99 in one day. admittedly, he had all the Genkkais completed, but I was able to easily solo up until 75-80 with Trusts, and then to 99 by burning him the rest of the way with my main.

Call SE or use the online ticket system (but better call them) and let them recover your account.
All you need will be a passport, your POL ID and your secret Answer - they will help in any way possible.

I had the exact same problem (a few years ago) and it took me 1 call.

My friend had a similar issue when we started again. Call SE.
Getting cancer would be more enjoyable than starting fresh.

Starting from 0 with no backup is cancer indeed, while game is easier now this only aplies to those multiboxing or have good friends willing to steam roll content for them.

When I was playing Ff14, I was using phone token app,but did a factory reset on the phone without saving all the token code bs.
I called se and just asked them to remove the token and they did.
Then you can request a password reset through email from there.
It's how I got into my account.

Starting over from scratch isn't hard. I use to play 10-12 years ago and just started fresh 1 year ago, forgot all my login crap. In the first 3 months I took thf and drk to 99. Completed all of Sandy, zilart cop, toah, wotg (stopped at mission 8, not a big wotg fan) all solo. Did all of seekers, only needed help with 1 mission. Also did all of rov only needed help with 2 or 3 missions. Just shouted for help and people were willing to help out. Now one year later I have blm and blu to 99. I have ragnarok relic and working on afterglowing it, soloed The currencies from dynamis (friend helped out with the 10,000 coin, did all The trials solo. The great thing about ffxi is there are people still willing to help out just like the old days. Just get in and focus on taking a job to 99 first. Then take it from there.

Starting from scratch is easy, no doubt. It's still incredibly time consuming, so unless you want to re-experience the mission storyline I would recover your account solely to save your mission progress.

Job levels, gear, etc, are nothing. Missions are horrible.

I recently returned about two (?) weeks ago. I had the old-school token (the key-ring one where you pressed a button to get a 6-digit code) that was no longer in sync with their servers. I called them up and it took a single phone call to sort everything out. Granted, I actually kept my old Content ID in my game manual, but it was a fairly simple task for them.

I left the game back when Aht Urghan and Salvage was the most recent content. If you had any gil and/or jobs at 75, then I do think it is worth your while to regain your old character. Even with the "easy" mode it is still a huge chore to get stuff done. Easy mode simply means you don't have to stand around waiting for parties to form -- you can simply use trusts. The problem is that any of the decent trusts will require a bit of effort (finishing missions, for example; some of them depend on prior expansion packs, too). All the exp bonuses come from finishing the Rhapsody missions, which again have prior expansion pack missions as pre-requisites.

So in my humble opinion, try to get them back.
