Rank 20 GuildlevesFollow

In short, how do I get access to these? I'm completely puzzled as to what I have to do.

My husband and I both play. He has Gladiator 12, PUG 10, Shield 6, BSM 11, ARM 14, ALC 10, MIN 12, and Phys 21. He has done one less storyline quest than I have.

I have PUG 12, MRD 11, LNC 4, CRP 11, Goldsmith 10, TAN 11, CLTH 5, BOT 5, FSH 6, and just got Phys 20. He has access to Camp Horizon Leves, whereas I do not. He had access last night at physical 20, PUG 8.

Now, I just got physical level 20. So, I'm hoping that when the leve timer is up tonight that I'll have access then. If so, I'll edit my post.

Any other suggestions?

They become accessible (from the regular leve person) to you once you get a job up to rank 13. Your PUG is 1 rank off.

I don't think physical level matters much in terms of anything other than stat/elemental allocation. Rank is what determines what stuff you can do in most of the game. (So far)

Guildleves, Storyline quests, guild story etc all rely on rank rather than physical level.

I just got there last night on my Conj. I was worried they'd be a big step up in difficulty from the lvl 10 leaves I'd been blasting through at 3 stars,so I tried them at one star.

Apparently I had nothing to worry about- a lot of the mobs died to a single AoE cast. I'll be trying 2 stars next. My Conj is just a bit into 14 now, physical lvl 21.

One plus though- a lot bigger rewards on these and one of the leaves actually had a new dynamic over kill/pursue. I had to use fireflies on mobs to see if they were really Imps in disguise. If they weren't, they were it+ kill me in 3 hit types (if I got close enough). If they were, I could easily blast them.

Hopefully leaves will continue to get more interesting as we advance.

you sure about that? I thought it was the other way around. Physical level determines what leves you can do and storyline. Or a combo of both at least, because why else would they call it level 20 leves?

They call them rank 20 leves, not level 20 leves.

Either way, why would you have to be rank 13 to do rank 20 leves? And it's your level that determines how strong you are, pretty much, not your rank...

Your level determines your stats, your rank determines your skill. IIRC stats are capped at a certain point if your current rank is too low.

Not to derail but this is slightly on topic...

At what Rank do you think I could start the Rank20 guildleves on THM? My THM is 13 with access to Stoneskin/Shock Spikes.. I accepted a Rank20 leve ONLY because the reward was 1k THM Guild Marks. It's the Imp one at that - I have to kill two of them. Think I'd be able to manage? It's ran out of Camp Horizon, near Ul'dah.

You can do some most of the rank 20 leve's (1 star) at that level. They scale considerably once you start adjusting the stars...

Think of it as 1 star Revenge of the Dodos to a 3 star Revenge of the Dodos, and that's what rank 20 leve's are.

SPOILER (Q-TIP)
------------------------
You can do Imp-mob based Rank 20 leve's around 2-3 stars easy as a CON / THM @ Rank 14+. But don't even think of trying Crabs, and Footpads above 1 star below rank 16-17 on your job solo. They WILL eat you alive with their AOE moves.

Thank you so much! I just want to start getting the THM marks! I'll try that one when I get home I think and maybe bring my GLD friend!

Spoil:


I actually joined two people on the one you mentioned under the spoiler tag and was promptly destroyed by the same thing you mentioned. They absolutely wrecked (and us) me with similtanious AOE weaponskills. It's nasty!


edit: Fixed spoil tag.
