I personally don't care that people are jumping ahead of me in levels at an astounding pace. I have a 2 year old son, a wife, and a full time job so I don't play nearly as often as those that don't have anything better to do. I understand that some people find joy in powering through to the higher levels. These are the players that will most likely end up spending half their playtime helping people like me that dont get to play that often. I like kinda just lazing through the game at my own pace and thanfully so far the game is very solo friendly unlike XI. I'm proud of my current character who is PhysLevel:9 THM5/BOT5/FSH5/ALC9 (Alchemy is most likely gonna be my main job I love crafting.) To those that rush to the end I worry that they gonna be stuck leveling other jobs while they wait for most of endgame content to be added (I mean come on, SE left out auto-sort, QuickReply, etc.... do you really expect much to be waiting at this point?) Some people may get that left behind feeling but remember this, if your LS is blowing past you in ranks you can always ask if they wanna low level another class with you. Play at your own pace and enjoy the game your way! :)
