My account is still active, I will also probably de-activate for October. Lots of people feel the game has been rejuvenated for them with Abyssea, but I don't know. You're constantly leveling up now, I feel the updates are coming too fast (obviously, others feel it's probably too slow). Magian trials are painful beyond anything, you waste tons of time for a weapon that's slightly better than it's predecessor. It just feels as if the rest of the world doesn't exist anymore, you're constantly in Abyssea for NM's, gear, exp. Sure you Magian it in other zones, but like I said, that's painful to begin with. Lower level exp parties are limited to MMM and Birds in East Ronfaure [S].
Let's face it too, an abyssea party is really only worthwhile if you have a few hours to spend, otherwise, exp ain't that great. Try getting a merit party together though, it ain't happening. I don't know, I guess you can low man a ton of stuff now, but it feels as though the game has become a huge grind beyond what it was, I didn't think that was possible. I guess if you can suck it up until 99 and have all your SJ's leveled, then great, but then what? Constantly hunting Abyssea zones for NM's? Or will they add new content?
