So everywhere I read it says you can only do the leve's every two days, but have we found this to be true?

The reason I ask is because two days in a row I was able to get the same leve's from the adventurers guild.

Also do you have to return to the adventurers guild to reset leve's or can u just log off by the stone and return when the timer resets and just click the stone and restart them?


FWIW I love this game!

There's a static 36 hour cooldown on leves.

Yea but are you sure? Because like I said I was able to do the same one two days in a row(only like 20 hours apart), with no maintenance in between

Seems like there may be some carry over if you don't take full advantage of the previous set. Making it look like you got more than you should've? That may be why you got to do that...had a discussion with an LS mate who said the same kind of scenario you're talking about. I know when I do my 8 I can't do more until the next 36hr reset, I've been keeping track of the schedule specifically for that reason. Yeah I'm sure about that if you're taking full advantage of each set...looks like SE doesn't penalize you if you don't play as often as others do though.

Quote:
You have to pick them up from the NPC within the 36 hours. Say if you pick up your 8 battle leves an hour before the server timer resets, then you can grab 8 more in an hour, then 8 more 36 hours after that.


Good call...that's another way it can seem like you got a whole lot more than 8.

36 hours....servers went live at 18:00PDT, next one was 6:00 PDT, then 18:00, 6:00, etc. It hasn't been perfect though, I think one time it seemed they reset sooner

They should reset again tonight at 18:00PDT or in that range

It doesn't really seem all that bad. Especially since Regional & Local leves have seperate restrictions. You're earning Physical XP regardless, so it's definately worth it to do the Local leves along with the Regional leves, plus you get rewarded with crafting mats when doing the Local leves as well, so even if you don't focus on crafting, you can sell off the materials you're rewarded with to folks who are primarily crafting and need the mats.

This is actually slightly off. I noticed yesterday morning I was able to get new leves at 7:00 CDT, when it should have been 8:00 CDT, assuming leve timers started at 18:00 PDT. I didn't check before then, so I don't know if they reset before 7 or not. Perhaps SE brought the servers up before 18:00 to do some maintenance on them or whatever, thus starting leve timers sooner. Just a guess.

And I'm pretty sure they're on a 36 hour cooldown. With the way 36 hours flow, it'll sometimes seem like you get leves two days in a row, but that's simply how 36 hour intervals pan out. Go with the 18:00 PDT example. The rotation would be:

21st 18:00 > 23rd 6:00 > 24th 18:00 > 26th 6:00

As you can see, it goes 21st to the 23rd, to the 24th. It "appears" to take two days on the first one, then just one day on the second. It's simply because the cooldown started late in some time zones paired with the 36 hours, which makes it sometimes seem shorter.

I'm sometimes struggling to make sure I do all 16 within each period...the people still complaining that 36 hours is too much confuse me. Though maybe they'll see it makes more sense later, especially at higher levels. Sure you can run through the rank1 stuff easily, but they get much more involved & entertaining later on...

Aye if you have a normal 40 hour job, and sleep at least 7 hours, you'll barely have any free time after you finish all 16 leves. Mainly because crafting leves take so **** long, and all the pointless running to mobs on Combat leves. Spent 6 mins just running to the mobs yesterday to kill them in 30 seconds, meh. 36 hours is fine imho.

I agree, i go through them kinda fast at low leves and the lvl 20 leves are a little longer, but the Craft leves do take some time and kinda makes it feel like a 1 player game. Trying to type while you craft sucks. You get half way through a sentence and it clears it. I find that aggravating, they need to fix that. I think 36 Hrs is fine and thats all/ :)

Agreed. Any time a new menu opens up in the game, it closes out of whatever you were typing.

Mining/fishing/logging are split with fighting leves. crafting is only crafting

So crafting is considered local levee?

Yes, Local Leves are available from the Local Leve NPC that target Craft-specific leves. They offer materials & gil rewards, along with skill you receive from actually crafting at NO material cost to you (even crystals)...so it's free skill in crafts with only rewards to gain. And the 8 leve timer is seperate from Regional leves.

You can even, after you finish the leve if you haven't failed a synthesis, use the remaining "extra" provided materials to get additional skill. I started doing this yesterday and with most, if you don't fail, you get an additional two synthesis attempts to gain more skill. Definitely worth doing the local leves :)

Doing the additional crafts also increases your quality rating, which I assume has some sort of effect on the reward you get for completing the local leve.

Do you have to go to the adventurers guild to restart the leves? Or as long as u don't change your 8 you can stay by the crystal?

Not sure. I always go back to the Adventurer's Guild to get new Leves anyways, for the chance to up the reward with exchanges as well as check for new leves with rewards that I prefer.

Their just like the other leves except you turn them in to the person they tell you to give them to. You can only do 8 within the 36 hr time limit. So you can do 8 battle/gather leves and 8 crafting leves. You can gain a **** load of exp, gil and materials, win win situation.

Thanks for the explanation. So now a couple questions.



So are the timers universal or individual?
Do u have to return to the adventurers guild everytime?
