I know i'm going to get rated down for this but really who cares if someone can PL a character to r30. You can't get to 40 or 50 doing this, so who cares.
This game has so many more issues and problems than a person who has friends who will kill mobs endlessly to no advantage of their own other than PL'n their buddy to r30 or so. Like the person above said the R 50 had to kill rank 30 mobs so they could kill fast enough to out weigh PTs.
So once the person hits r30 they have to grind to 50 the old fashion, or should i say the new fashion way. This is really pulling at straws here.
I'll leave ya with 2 things.
1: the SMN burn in FXI was the exact same method, you only needed 3 SMNs in the PT to keep the chain going, 1 other slot had to be a COR to pop roll, the other two slots were leach spots. So 3 ppl did all the work while 6 got god like XP. It's the same thing. If it was ok in XI it's ok in XIV. **** in XI now you can leach all the way to 85 in abys. You guys are crying over stupid stuff
2: This type of "it's not fair" attitude was the same attitude that got AV K-club nerfed along with a bunch of other mobs. There are going to be aspects and parts of the game that you won't be able to take advantage of. Either except it STFU and move on, ignore it and take no part in it and ridicule those who claim uber status for "PL'n", or find some friends who will do the same for you and take advantage of it.
Coming on here to ***** about it does nothing but bring light to the glitch, ensure everyone knows about it and more ppl use it, and also get it patched faster than it normally would have. SE does read these forums so, anything you say will be took into consideration. You may not like it, but you might be in the minority. So stop playing holier than thou and do something else.
inc sub-default woot woot!
I personally wont rate you down, but I will reply.
The game had been out for what, 6 years was it, before they introduced level sync. That introduced Summoner Burn parties. You are right, a few people could leech. But the time and effort to coordinate the party was still great. Also, if you didn;t have a corsair to refresh 2 hour abilities, you could only do the burn once every 2 hours.
You think that half the party working a few leeching is the same as one uber high level clearing all the mobs while the rest of the party just follow. Dude, they are worlds apart.
Abyssea...erm lol. We are now talking about an 8 year old game where the level cap will soon be 99, you think they care if people level using burn parties. FFXIV has just been released and is at a tender stage. This is clearly an oversight by SE and will get fixed. Afterall in XI, what happened when people were out of the optimum level range, oh yeah XP became non existent.
Coming on the forum does more than enlighten the community, it is also in a way getting back to Square. The more this is discussed on forums the more likely they are to read it. Also, I am not worried about people helping their friends level using this technique, but if RMT catch on to this and can use it for months it could be bad.

Imagine loads of good hunting areas, dominated by clone armies with a high level killing all the mobs you want to be levelling on.
Anyways, you are clearly really missing the point and I cannot be bothered wasting time explaining it. Edited, Nov 30th 2010 1:39am by MisterGaribaldi
