So, for a little fun last night, I decided to see how fast a solo new comer might progress in their first day of FFXIV after the sp patch. Now, I thought this was really funny, myself, so I wanted to post it. My 2nd character, Kindred Vahn on Mysidia got:
and after some minor purchases, had about 15k left on him. Now this might not be overly mind boggling, but! this was done with almost no mob killing besides guild leve mobs and 8/8 regional and 7/8 local. This took me about 1-2 hours, was tired so can't remember fully. Dunno if anyone is overly impress or shocked, but you could lvl a 2nd character solely on guild leves and probably catch up to someone who has been playing solely on guild leves since release in about a month max solo. Wow, shocked me!
Thought I'd post this and see what peeps on ZAM think, also, I am not directing anything negative at SE, simply reporting what I discovered last night.
*Note, I feel there is almost no need for any gear under lvl 12 because at lvl 2 of a craft you can repair it and you level so fast that you would need 12 or higher gear after one set of guild leves. WOWZA!*
