Leves informationFollow

Before anyone says "This has been covered already", well bah, I did a search on every forum trying to find anything based on it.

Now my one main question is this.

We can only do 8 local leves and 8 Regional leves a day (or 24hrs) correct? So when do they reset and you are allowed to pick more up?

I did my leves yesterday but did not get to them until late at night. Now I am sitting around and cannot pickup a single leve to do anything....been like this all day.

So do the leves reset at the EXACT time 24hrs later that you did them?

During open beta, the 8 leve cooldown was 48 hours. it had nothing to do with when each player did them, it was reset server wide, I believe 48 hours after the servers come back up from maintenance. Doesn't really matter right now, because for release cooldowns are being reduced, but they haven't said by how much. I imagine it would be to 24 hours, and they can still use either Japanese midnight, or whatever time the servers go live as the reset time.

Probably Japanese midnight. At least that is how almost all the reset times worked in XI.

In beta the reset has been at Midnight GMT, not Midnight in Japan. I would expect this to continue in release as GMT is a much more logical time to use for a global game.

I'm happy as long as it stays the same time.

I'll agree with everyone else, the leves will likely reset on a global timer, not based on when you picked them up, atleast that's how it's been so far.

Now they said they were going to address the leve system, as far as reducing the 48 hour timer, that's just an assumption, but the most probable solution.

Personally, I don't mind the 48 hour timer for leves, that's 16 leves every 2 days, sounds like plenty to me, especially considering they were trying to cater to casual gamers. Now if it were to actually change to a 24 hour reset, that's fine by me too, I suppose you could atleast login to refresh your leves and exchange them for more or better rewards.

Aside from all that, here's a few possible ways they might intend to improve the current leve system.
1. Shorten the reset timer from 48hr.
2. Increase the amount of leves available during each period.
3. Seperate Battlecraft and Fieldcraft leves, allow them each 8 leves, instead of combining them. (Crafting gets a dedicated 8 leves, why not Gathering?)

There are many other possibilities, but it's ultimately up to SE to decide. Surely it can't get any worse, let's just be happy they even decided to something.

its not an assumption, it was announced that they will be reducing the cooldown on leves by some amount. They also 180'd again saying that guild leve's are intended to be the primary leveling method.

I agree with you though, Crafting gathering and battle leves should all be seperate.

Thanks for the awesome responses!

Yes it would be nice if the fieldcraft and battlecraft were seperate though at the same time if you are concentrating on battle over craft, you really don't need as much xp/skill in the DoL set because you can get a lot of materials from battle and sell/trade the excess or unneeded materials for needed/wanted ones.

So I can see in a midterm to longterm view how it could balance out but if you do everything (like me and probably most people) you just want more things to do because you can ask for them.

Just curious, because I didn't do a single DoW Guildleve throughout the Beta, are they seperate to the battle leves?
