Revenge of the Dodos

That leve in particular is nasty. The Dodos are super strong, even on 1-star, and they come back to the aetheryte camp once you die, so they can keep killing you. The name "Revenge of the Dodos" is no joke.

I wonder if they are going to fix scaling... After talking with my buddies, I realized that this was set to party (3-star) mode, and 5 people were getting stomped by it.

We were all around 10. Seems like the guildleve system is really inconsistent with scaling, though... At 2-stars, this was way, way too easy. Everything was getting 1shot.

Yeah sometimes leves on the same star act much differently. We'll do one that seemed like a decent challenge, same star level next time and we're destroying the mobs.

Dodos are a silver leve, not like the typical bronze.

Hmm, that might be it, but we still creamed them when we did the leve on 2-star right before...

There's nothing wrong with the scaling, 5 stars will just be an insurmountable challenge, always, even with 15 people.

An important thing to note about doing guildleves, is to never fight while weakened. In BETA 3 you'd have to wait til everyone else was whiped until you could return, which resulted in a lot of failed guild-leves. Other than that, 3 people doing a 5 star guildleve is suicide :D.

Oh yeah, that is true. After the post, we realized that it was 3-star. Still suicide, though.

Glad you liked it! LF is already working on more videos. Hopefully of the same humor level, but less on the tragic level... D:

Yeah, for some reason that leve is scales harder than most. We could do 3 people (10-12) with 3-4 stars on every other leve there, but that one, we did at 3 and we didn't kill a single dodo...

Cost of doing Revenge of the Dodo's at Drybone = 1 Leve

Price of a Weathered Axe = Around 600 gil

Dieing 28 times with friends and finally completing = Priceless

Hahaha, awww... It's true! I feel like this is just a sign that FFXIV will bring just as many funny (and ridiculous) memories that FFXI did. The difference is that dying isn't as horribly horrible as it was in FFXI, so the downsides aren't as great. Trying to do a naked run to Ishgard won't be as devastating as a naked run to Jeuno, methinks.
