I'm at gladiator rank 17 at the moment, and soloing has gotten to be very painful, so I've been trying to find people to group with, but everyone seems very rude, 9/10 people won't even respond to me, and I really have no idea what to level on, as everything is either too easy and gives ~100 SP a kill, or is red. There doesn't seem to be a middle ground.

my gladiator and I are currently duo'ing in Cassiopeia Hollow and getting great exp. This game is not a solo game, but currently is not a party game either because of the EXP bug, but duo'ing gets things done fast and efficiently.

I'm not that high. But a LS mate is GLA 17 and was grinding of off Arbots in Coerthas. I believe he said he was in the southeast. He said he was easily taking down Reds and Yellows. I forgot what he said about his physical level but i believe he was like 24+. You could try there maybe.

Just gotta be patient and stay calm as far as finding the right people to party with. Maybe look for a somewhat social linkshell on your server. Not sure where to grind though as highest DoW for me is Pug 14

I went and partied for a couple hours and now I'm seriously *******

First, I found a level 18 marauder to duo with, so I was like okay cool. We do his leves first, which I get 200 sp total from, because we're killing the rank 20 leve monsters too quickly. Whatever, soon we're gonna go to cassiopeia's hollow. So we finally get there, and the jellyfish are pretty tough, we have to rest after every fight. We decide we need a healer. Luckily, there's a healer nearby, so we ask if he'll join. He was apparently communicably challenged though, as we had to ask him 4 or 5 times before we got a response. Sure, he said, as long as my friend can party with us.

Okay so I heard partying with more than 3 people is a bad idea, but if we don't, one of us has to leave. So whatever we'll give it a shot. We walk around killing things very quickly, and my teammates are raving about how awesome the SP is, 250-300 a kill. Only one proble, I'm getting 0 SP with every single god damned kill. I didn't earn one single point the entire 45 mins. we walked around the cave. They didn't give a **** either, they weren't losing out, so if I left, it was no big deal to them.

So I eventually just had to leave. I don't think I've ever wanted to rage so hard at a game. It's like no matter what I do the experience points just won't come.

how much have you been playing this week? you could have hit the threshold, the point at which you wont receive any more rank points for that class. if thats the case, then back off leveling it for a day or so and itll reset to a certain degree (but start to decrease again). or else just dont worry about leveling it until monday or tuesday.

I'm having this exact same problem. I go out leveling with my friends (grinding and leves), and they are telling me how awesome the exp gain is. I have not hit fatigue yet, and it's driving me crazy.

If that's the case the game needs to tell you as plain as day you are in this mode, not make you realize it by crappy experience. The game can put an icon up when I'm under guardian's favor for bonus xp, give me an icon when you are not going to give me any more xp.

No, this game has an XP bug.

There have been other topics too. Simply put, grouping up is not rewarding the correct XP. I have people in my groups all the time complain about not getting XP. Then after a few fights they're like, "Yay, I got 200!"

I agree. The only way I know of checking for fatigue is by your exp number color. With this though I really have no idea what causes it. One of my friends suggested it was that the wear on my gear was low. I carry materials around for every piece to repair when my gear gets damaged, so I don't believe that is it (yes I even carry around 2 pairs of undies >.<).
