Hello and thanks ahead of time for any replies:

1. Once you finish the introduction story line quest chain and doe the intro leve at the first camp what do you do between level 4-10 before the next battlecraft leve is available? Are you supposed to just grind on green and blue con mobs for 10 hours?

2. When grabbing level ~1 battlecraft level from the quest giver in the inn after you finish the into quest chain i grab 4 of them and when I go to do them on solo difficulty it only spawns red con mobs of 2-3 at a time that absolutely destroy me. This has been the case in all 3 starting zones.

3. I am having trouble finding mobs my level (4) all i see are green low level ones scattered over kingdom come and then crazy hard Dodos that 2 shot me.

4. If I do the 4 level ~1 low level leves that counts towards my 8 level per 48 hours?

Please, anything :) I have spent hours and hours on google trying to find tips and info about this sorta stuff and it just keeps pulling up rage forum posts about the 8 hour exp caps. And wow this game really just dumps you in the middle of no where with no info on where to go next, it reminds me of my days of vanilla EQ1 slaying fire beatles for their eyes and dying over and over to rattlesnake poison.


Thanks,

1. Battle leves are still available for the level 1-10 range.

2. What are you asking here? The mobs are red, but you can still kill them. Might need to kill 1, die (or run), come back, kill another, repeat.

3. Again, this is a statement, not a question? Green is not the lowest con. Blue is. Greens are what you want to solo on.

4. Yes.




Basically, you want to get groups together for leves. You get much more EXP/Points and they're a lot more fun in groups. After that, yeah, it's pretty much mob grinding. Or, you could just continue to do leves, but join other peoples groups to help them out with theirs. As there isn't a full line (or hardly any line) of Missions and Quests so far, you can kill mobs, craft, or gather.


Remember, this may be an Open Beta, but it's still a beta and SE is still data mining everything we do in order to make whatever changes that need to be made.

You don't know how to fight then - you know you don't need to wait for the stamina bar to fill up before attacking right? you can attack contunously and let it deplete and when necesary give it time to build up again. This is the only thing i can of that you may be doing wrong because level 1 leves on solo difficulty take literally seconds to finish. What class are you? As for your other concerns, you can easily fight green con mobs - outside limsa there's plenty of rats, beetles and after rank 2 or 3 plenty of moles. Outside of Ul'Dah there's plenty of marmots and Coblyns...I don't know about Gridania but i'm sure it follows suit. As for not there being enough mobs, sometimes mobs don't load in, I've had to log out and back in on occasion because mobs wouldn't be loading - meaning there will literally be no mobs for very long strentches of land.
