Makes me wonder what it will be like when a lot more people get on when more keys go out/the weekend is here/the game comes out...... well, I guess the weekend IS here, but you know what I am saying...

I am in Selbina/Gridania and I literally cant find a mob to fight. There are so many people out here that people are waiting around for mobs...should we expect that this will be adjusted by game time?

The first week or so after the game comes out is gonna be ridiculous I am sure. Envisioning the nightmare that was the first few months of FFXI lol.

Yeah a lot of things are over-camped. Hopefully they will adjust the respawn rate when the game comes out.

I have to trek out from the camps to see mobs usually. One good aspect is that when you activate a leve the mobs are "instanced" in a sense. Other players won't see your quest mobs until you attack them.

this is what makes it worthwhile to group up even at low levels... if people would just get that it would be faster for everyone

I've explored away alot, a found that there were wharf rats by the next camp after bearded rock (caenwood or something) and also theres a boat to take you to a place where marmots are plentiful. (this is from Limsa)

However I do recognise the problem because theres only so few monsters we can fight at low levels, whereas in FFXI there was two that you could get right away and by level 8 you could get anything in the immediate area. There needs to be better mobs for low levels and more of them.
