I know it's already been discussed about the difficulty of getting a party together, but I was wondering how other people are doing it. I've been kind of in limbo at gladiator rank 18 for a while, and it's a bit disheartening as guildleves give such a small amount of SP, soloing is unbearably slow at this rank, and I don't really know how to go about recruiting party members other than walking around to different camps and /shouting. Many of my linkshell members are often busy crafting or don't have the right class/rank combo to party with, so I've kind of run into a standstill with my progression.

This is the first day since launch where I logged in, literally walked around a few hours looking for a party, found nothing, then got depressed and logged off.

I would get on my knees for a "LFG" option in the party menu. I'm so used to putting up my name in seeking then going on to other business. Without it I find myself only logging in for an hour to try for a group, do a couple leves, then I'm off.

During the beta, I actually had a lot of luck grabbing leves from town, running to the camp, then just doing a normal say... something like
"Hey, anyone wanna do leves?"
I was on Mysidia then, which is apparently a Japanese server, so I'd get a lot of Japanese people randomly saying "Hello!" then asking to invite them. Maybe it's just Japanese people, but just saying "Hey, someone do leves with me" seems to work better than "LNC 10 LFG PST"

There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of point to grouping for leves though, as they don't give a whole lot of SP. Often, the creatures die before I can skill up.

I would suggest going to a level place, for level 18 glad, that would be cassiopeia's hollow and ask the people down there. I am usually soloing the cass' but if a glad came up to me and asked me to duo, I would jump at the offer.
