My question is: I got into a party for the first time yesterday (up until now I have been soloing) I am currectly level 16 GLA & level 10 CONJ. I was invited to party with a lvl 12 LAN & a lvl 10 CONJ, and we did great! great xp, easy killing, I am wondering if when in a party if it matters what lvl our job is, or if its the phycial level we are instead, so when "seeking a party" What would I be asking, "GLA level 16? or GLA phycial lvl 19?" Thanks for any help! Cookieman.

I dunno if enough is known about the game at this point to correctly answer.

I would suggest though to stay between 2-3 ranks between each other. If the difference is to vast
it might skew exp/sp gains and also make the party experience harder especially between curing and dmg
taken from a mob.

As well if the melee's are to far below level mobs will go down much slower and physical exp might be slow
but could also be a great way to power level sp.

Seems like the start of an interesting post ^^

I would think Rank outweighs Physical level when it comes to determining the difficulty of a mob. But that is speculation.

The problem I have is my Physical Level is 2x my highest Rank for Combat Jobs - which makes party seeking rather strange.

When I was leveling Pug with a friend last week (she is Physical level 14, I was physical level 8) we are getting similar rank ups (both our Ranks for Pug is 1) but she is getting a lot less Exp than me. The Exp I am getting seems comparable, just slightly lower, to the Exp I would get if Soloed them.

But I am not sure if that slight decrease is because the party penalty (if such thing even existed) or if it is because I am 6 physical levels lower than her.
