I tried searching but I only found a thread which is mostly filled with a discussion about EXP loss, which is obvious that going to exist.

I wanted to know if there was Deleveling like in FFXI? Like youre level 10, you die too much then you go back down to 9.

Thanks again!

P.S: Faaairly knew to this series of MMO since I come mostly from WoW and I'm planning to try this one out~

FYI, the most recent iteration of the game manual mentions absolutely nothing about XP loss in the section dealing with getting KO'd. Only 3 minute weakness.

Being KO’d
If a character’s HP is reduced to 0, he/she will be “knocked out” and no longer able to move or act. A character can be revived by selecting “Return” from the main menu, which will warp the character to the last aetheryte camp or aetherial gate selected from the Interactions menu.

* If a character is KO’d while participating in a levequest, he/she will be teleported back to the corresponding aetheryte.
* Characters KO'd will receive a weakness penalty that will not only lower total HP, but also reduce the speed with which their stamina gauge fills, as well as increase the length of casting times. This penalty will last three minutes before wearing off. If a character is KO’d while weakened, they will be inflicted by an even more potent weakness pentaly.

Honestly no level downs for dieing is so nice compared to FFXI. God I can hear the sound in my head right now. It always took some adventure out of the game because dieing has such a penalty.

Blah... It was a pretty weak penalty, really. I'll miss it. ****, I've probably died more times in FFXIV's beta than I did in my years on FFXI, simply because there's no real punishment now.

The playtime lost for dying is a lot more forgiving in FFXIV, I'll give them that. No one wants to lose hours of gametime like in FFXI. I hope no one was that much of a ********* to have enjoyed it at all.


Related: I see they still haven't made any pop-up for being KO'd? Reading the loadstone site leads me to believe that they have no plans for adding such a visual indicator either.

If you needed a whack to the head with the xp stick in order for you to feel you had an incentive not to suck, I feel for you. I actually felt a lot more enthusiastic about trying things like poking a Sphene Doblyn with my whacker stick or trying to take on one of the crabs in the area around LL with a 3-man rank 6-9 party. You try, you learn, and then if you're smart you don't do it again. I can see plenty of other little flicks on the ear for dying at an inopportune moment that SE could employ that doesn't involve taking away the progress that people have already earned.

Getting jumped by a cluster of Scout Vultures that didn't appear on my screen until I was standing in the middle of them and getting one-shot and sent back to the last aetheryte I visited only to try the trip again sucked a bit from the lost time perspective (running back) and from the cheap perspective (getting one-shot by something I couldn't even see until I was right on top of it). Those are little flicks on the ear that say, "Hey, we hope you learned something from all this." Tossing in xp loss on top of that is just the little punch to the face that says, "Hey, forget about how irate you are and go around telling everyone how much you enjoy this. Chicks dig it."
