I heard rumors of this so i decided to test it out with my lancer. Killed a few green dodo's around camp horizon and was getting about 150 each kill. After I hit 20 and was getting about 80 or so on average almost 1/2 the SP i was getting before. I find it very odd that as soon as you hit level 20 the game now takes more than 2x as long to level. I'm cool with pushing people to 20 but i strongly disagree with sharp EXP spikes. As a control i also tested out 18 on the same dodo's and was getting about 165 a kill.
I can't help but get the feeling something fishy is going on. I wonder if SE is annoyed that people hit 50 already especially considering that they have yet to pay a dime on subscription fee's...
Anyway just wanted to make sure people knew, and i'd appreciate more people confirming this so that everyone knows exactly what's going on.
I'm also curious if this bugs anyone else, personally if this doesn't get address i'm gonna be a little upset. I don't think the MMO portion of the game should begin at level 20, I'd like to be eased into the process of maybe in ffxi's case give me some consistency when it comes to level's per hour.
I wonder if a similar phenomena happens between 29-30 or any other levels for that matter, I hope SE isn't pulling any tricks it would really go against their whole "honesty" thing.
