The tell tale signs were there (Your Leatherworking skill bonus increases). No i tell you I'm not addicted to such high SP gain from leve's and a couple 5+ hr grinding sessions..... but alas your statement has proven me wrong so here I go,

Hi, I'm Nghthawk Evenfall and according to your internal system I'm addicted to crafting. How has this happened??? Why is it happening to me???? I swear I'm not addicted to high sp gains!!!! I'm not... I'm not!!! Well maybe a little, hence I just joined the Fatigue Anonymous club in just under 2 months of playing time.

A little something to celebrate me hitting fatigue for 1st time. Is it gonna stop me.... NO!!! It might slow me down thats about it.

Hi, I'm Ailys Foxglove... and I'm a recovering Botanist. Ummm... my last bender was last week, I ... I didn't stop when I knew when it was happening. It almost seemed like a good thing, "your botany skill bonus increases", "your botany skill bonus RANK increases". I don't know why I kept chopping. I just, you know, I was close to ranking and all... so I just thought, "Oh, what could one more tree hurt? I can push it just a little bit. I'm still in control." That was Monday, I think. I don't think I was un-fatigued until Thursday, you know... there were leves offering GUILDMARKS and I REALLY want Triangulate V.

Now it's almost the weekend, and my friends are concerned that I'm going to relapse... but I still need Triangulate V!

*sits down*

Pfft, you addicts play too much. Sure, I've hit bonus experience each week since September, but I'm not weak like you guys. I'm in complete control here. I can put down that controller whenever I want, I just don't want to!

I got fatigue in my first week on Conjurer... but I was on vacation. With work it doesn't happen so much. I'm looking forward to having another week off soon.

Hi, I'm Estur Leone, and I'm a Pugilist.

I can't help punching the living daylights out of things, you know? It explains the broken condition of my knuckles and horas, the ire of my Link Shell, who have now called nicknamed me 'Rambo,' and the Eyepatch hiding a black eye.

The last couple of weeks, I've been so happy doing Flurries of blows, that on two occasions, I suddenly began to feeling a bit...tired, and not knowing what I felt. So I asked my Link Shell buddies at the time what it was.

"Congratulations, Estur! You're the first Disciple of War in the LS to have reached fatigue! You're too grindtastic..." was what our sarcastic leader, Mariya Shidou, told me and every other Link Shell member over communications.

So, I've slowed down a little, and found that Fishing and Archery weren't bad jobs to pick up either - stacks of fish and shards to go with them all! Thousands of Gil spent on arrows! I'm a hunter now!

(Sobbing) My Fatigue will be over in a week...please let this week go by quickly...

Congrats on finally gettin scholar! Dunno when it happened, but I can't think of a poster I've been rootin for (and helpin out along the way) more than you! As usual, good post. I haven't hit fatigue yet due to my erratic schedule, but I totally feel ya... been on some crazy crafting grind sessions myself and yet always seem to keep comin back for more. I now have ALL crafts above rank 10, as well as all DoW/DoM minus archer, and all DoL... and I'm not stoppin! ^^

just a quick question, I feel like i play a lot. ROUGHLY how many hours of grinding on 1 class a day would you have to do to hit fatigue. I haven't hit it yet.

Oh, gods... you mean you expect one of us to admit ROUGHLY how much of our time we waste on gaming! :P

I'm not even 100% sure how it works... if a modest amount over a long period of time will do it, or if it really takes protracted concentrated effort to set it off... I know I was about 2 to 2 1/2 weeks in from retail when I first got hit (rank 18 Botanist). I play pretty heavily on weekends, but I switch jobs a lot too which would keep my fatigue from being focused. I don't recall if I got hit inbetween, but last Monday (I think) I got hit with it again (rank... I was probably at 29.5 Botanist, pushed through fatigue to 30, but the fatigue took like 4 days to wear off).

So since my total playtime shouldn't matter, only the playtime on Botanist, if you look at how much time was inbetween the two events, and figure how much time it should take to cover the SP difference between rank 18 to 29... divide.. something... carry the ... oh bother, you take it from here. :P

Sincerely,
Ailys Foxglove

However it long it takes you to gain roughly 80,000 Skill Points, +/- depending on any breaks taken in a straight non-stop grind.

I hit fatigue in 11 hours after it went away on my blacksmith. I pretty much hit 1.8 ranks at R37 in 1 sitting.

But then again, I got fatigue 2 hour after grinding on efts after it was gone, and had it go away again on the same day after another 2 hours. The fatigue system is confusing, like crafting it's best to pretend its not there by closing your eyes. Ignorance is bliss.

My name is Lahru Hukurou and I've hit fatigue before. I prefer calling it bonus, because it sounds so much better lol. I've gotten bonus before and I just keep on going. Honestly, I don't know how often it happens anymore. I stopped paying attention to it quite a while back. Its like when I go to fill up my truck with gas, I don't pay attention to the price. Whats the point in going crazy about it? I need the gas, because I'm not going to stop driving my truck. I'm not going to stop leveling, so I don't pay attention to when I go into bonus lol. I'm thankful that Nophica hasn't struck me down for all the trees I've killed -_-;;

Hi I am Richard Preston and I am a Blacksmith.

Hit fatigue tonight after making I dunno, about 90 iron needles. I got just about 2 levels of blacksmith today, 20-21.9. I did get a +1 iron needle that I plan on keeping even though my clothcraft is only 6 right now, is that bad? ^^

/Cheers, Richard

Yesterday, I finally hit fatigue for the first time, on a skill I would never though possible. It was my Shield skill! It went from R12 to R21 in less than 2 days xD.

*/standsup* *(holds on to chair, legs all wobbly)

Hello, I'm Kamui Saito. I've been hitting fatigue (almost fall on the ground), sorry like I was saying, I've been on fatigue for as long as I can remember. I try many different things like Weaver, Alchemist and Goldsmith to take my mind of Hand-to-Hand combat (stare at my knuckles). I can't seem to bring myself to stop punching things. I know, I need help(almost crying, broken voice). But hopefully if I keep my mind occupied I will be FREE of FATIGUE!........Thank you!

Hi! My name is Cloe and it rhymes with Moe.

I've had my 3rd relapse with fatigue. Each and every time, it's my physical level that's hitting fatigue. Yesterday, I gained another physical bonus rank. I think I need help ._.;

But soon I'll be 50, and then I won't have to care anymore, right?!

Growing up sometimes sucks. At least we still know to have a good time though, right?
