I'll bet a doughnut there was some exploit opened up due to one of the last few patches that some people may have been exploiting.

Frustrating!! My server (Karnak) was just down not even 2 hours ago for "emergency maintenance..."

Grr. They'd better at least throw in a fix or two while they're at it... actually, no. Then the servers would go down a third time 2 hours later. >.<

When the server message came up to warn of the maintenance it actually said, "During this period, the Final Fantasy XIV Beta Test will be unavailable."

Since you're level 47 looks like logging in hasn't been a problem for ya.

SP isn't broken. It was way too hard to level up before solo, and this game encourages playing different classes, so why make things ridiculously hard like they were in FF11?

At this point, any new maintenance is a good thing (more tweakings, <yes,please>). It shows their dedication to fix things and not wait for the weekly maintenance to do so. GOGOGO SE, make this game awesome as soon as possible!!! We want to enjoy it more and more!

I'm loving the "what the ****?" ... hahaha I had the same reaction, though it was because this time the "emergency" maintenance has a 2 hour gap instead of 15 minutes. (grrrrrrrrrrrrrr /angrygamerrage)

The market wards on several servers are continuously crashing, i suspect overloaded Battlecraft ward... I got DC trying to elave it right after it just crashed and i put my retainer there as a test to see if stuff sold faster.

But i secretly hope its to nerf leves. I know people who got 14 ranks from 1-14 in 1.25 hours doing r10's on 5 stars with a r18 helper. The helper can be a glad or a archer or any class that kills fast..


If it doesnt end up bannable I recomend everyone try it.

They did a total of 6 leves each to obtain 14 ranks.... Good times! I did it the other day and got Thaum from 7 to 14, just manually grinded to 16.

Aurelius I hope your happy I have Stygian Spikes now =P

Each to their own. I get some people enjoy solo'ing 99% of the time and thats cool but right now partying is broken in terms of SP gain if you want to fight anything outside of blue mobs which die in about two seconds.

PS: Leveling up before solo after 20 was actually better or the same. You'd get between 0-200 SP each kill. Now you get about 80 SP each kill. Getting to 20 now is a joke though xD Couldn't be easier.

Because 10 SP increased (with Guardian Favour) for a Hedgemole that do twice the amount that it did (1 star - hit for 500 on special, 2 star - hit for over 1,000 on special) is not broken?

Let's just wait :3

SP seems indeed broken, ranking up post 31 is like... not worth the time/pain when you get barely 100SP per mobs (solo, apart from leves with GA) and you need 45k SP to rank. I understand this game (more than) encouraging to playing different classes but one should also get the possibility to rank one class. Not everyone likes to play melees or mages or tanks. We all have our affinities when it comes to classes and we shouldn't be obliged to rank every classes because ranking our prefered class becomes far too long (weeks for a casual player to rank 31 to 32, compared to a couple of days to get from 74 to 75 in FFXI) and I'm just talking about past 31, I can't even imagine past rank 40. My point being that at this moment, it is way harder/longer than FFXI to rank up (At FFXI EU launch). I could still solo what seemed a reasonnable amount of exp considering the TNL in FFXI at lvl64 on EP mobs, whereas here, it seems like I'm rewarded peanuts for the amount of SP required to rank up. So yeah, IT LEAVES no choice to rank up classes I will never play again just to feel like I'm accomplishing something durain my playtime and keep my 'enjoyment' at a fairly good level without being depressed and just log out.
I would not mind getting very low SP if it was during a quest with CS and even the reward of the quest wouldn't matter, just to enjoyment to have finish a quest is enough, but getting this amount of SP while grinding just puts me down.

Just my persnnal opinion ^^

I'll be super ****** if they messed with SP rewards when having low/high (i.e. one lv 10 play with a lv 20 player not to confuse anyone) levels mixed in PT or for leves. Other than that, power to them if they perform construction on SP balance for solo/PT.

Edit: now that I think about it, it might have been the server crashing and noticed all the retainers on every floor filled with players reputting retainers. Happened around 1:oo am and noticed Ls all mentioning they d/c'd.

I'm not seeing the hurt on SP yet and i'm 34. Quartz Coblyns are giving me about 130 sp per kill and they can be killed very fast. They spawn like crazy around the Broken Water area. I suppose time will tell.

Thanks for the info, I will try those that seem indeed better than what I tried to kill so far!

You can think my opinion funny all you want but I just think some of you don't know where to go to hunt. I have friends who are in the 30s and getting decent gains, but more over, I also played FFXI and it took me a month to go from 50-51 because of the need to party, and I was a white mage. Maybe I misspoke when I said it wasn't broken, what I should have said is it's better post-patch then it was pre-patch, because pre-patch it was taking me whole days just to raise through the teens. I don't know what it's done to higher levels post patch, but as a casual player it took me a whole month just to get to level 17 puglist, and now I'm sure I could do it in 3 days.

In my opinion, this encourages casual players who just don't have time to play every day, and can still make you feel like you're making progress.

Agreed! People just need to figure out where and what to hunt. The SP is out there... just have to find it. :)

I can't believe this was both an "emergency" and "important" enough to shut down the game for 2 hours.

Oh no! 12 fish hooks! THE ECONOMY WILL SPIRAL OUT OF CONTROL!

I wonder what they really fixed but don't feel like divulging.

Right?

That couldn't have waited for the December update?

They couldn't waste my time shutting down the game for a few hours to actually fix something worthwhile?

I'm not sure if I'm insulted/appalled or both.

I expected this to be like "We fixed the exploit where RMT were getting 10million gil for leves instead of 1 million" or something "important" enough to be an "emergency."

They really shouldn't throw those two words around for 8 extra fish hooks.

Seriously doubt that is the fish hook thingy that brought down the servers.

Hours before they did so, I'm experiencing a lot of lag and r0 DCs...

Maybe they ain't telling us the reasons (>...>

That could be what the patch fixed, among other things... I myself found issues where I'd get stuck in an instance somewhere. After selecting and naming my companion in "Fade to White" instead of teleporting me out of the instance I was stuck inside the building for awhile with no escape. It asked me if I wanted to leave a couple times but wouldn't teleport me. After I sat down on a bed in an empty room it finally did, seems all I had to do was "wake up". :P

Bet the patch probably fixed issues like that too, getting stuck in instances or having it reload you in an instance a couple times. Really, do I need to exit the elevator in Ul'dah twice? Yes I do! First time was so much fun I had to do an instant replay!

Your Rank 34 Lancer, talking about Rank 40 Leves...ever thought about not being high enough for Rank 40s yet? I Trio Rank 40 Leves with 2 friens, one being a healer and were all between 34-37 and we barely are able to get most leves done on 2 stars...and guess what...cause we're not Rank 40 yet...if we would be like 3-4 Ranks higher(so actually reaching the rank the leves are) we would prolly be able to 3 star them easily...so stop ******** about something thats working right for a change. Not to mention you're talking BS about Guardians Aspect(not favour)...with aspect you get 50SP+ more per mob than w/o.

Just because you are able to start Rank 40 leves, does not mean you would be able to solo them with ease, especially when you're 6 ranks below the actual leve rank.

If people want to complain about things, then at least complain about things worth complaining(like content, or PT SP) and actually complain reasonable and not just because you're ****** you can't solo Rank 40 stuff on Rank 34...

Your reading skill must suck terribly. 10 SP for a much harder fight (twice the damage), is it worth it? If I had trouble with the lol hedgemole, I couldnt have killed it and see the SP. And guess what? 3 Stars give another 10 SP extra, 4 stars another 10, and 5 star mobs another 10 but it can pretty much one shot you with anything it does. The way it is now, you DO NOT increase difficulty, because the reward increased is pathetic. 5 Star Humblehearth does do almost twice as much as 4 star Humblehearth does, on r34, for a meager 10 SP increased. Get it?

Yo.

I HIGHLY doubt the fishhook thing was the sole issue they patched. Just what they had chosen to told us. As we play today we'll see what might be different. Personally, since the last mini-patch I've been getting server errors and kicked so hopefully they tweaked that.

Either way, quit whining. It's a vidya game, it was down a few hours and it's back. You'll get your sweet sweet release soon enough.

I'm sure if they wanted to they could keep SP working the same for solo as they have it now, and revert back to the way it was pre-patch for parties. Maybe best of both worlds?

I'm betting they just fix the exploit/bug/error that's been happening with high ranks PLing low ranks.

Plus now you're talking about Humblehearth...and before that you were talking about Hedgemoles...there is no Humblehearth Leve with Hedgemoles, nor is there any Rank 30 Leve with Hedgemoles, the first appear on Rank 40 leves. I would be willing to believe you, if you were actually stating facts, instead of just "************ comments w/o any evidence. Cause for me it clearly is different(30-50 SP per difficulty+) and I assume we do play the same game right? Not to mention, how do you know its another 10SP on 5 star, when you get one shotted?

If you would list your arguments in a proper manner, and with actual truth in it, it would help a lot more to get some insight on the problem you seem to have, than just ******** about it.

edit: And by now you should have noticed that your personal Rank is a way bigger factor in DMG you get, then anything else in this game. The Hedgemole might hit you for 1000 DMg with its special on Rank 34...try it again on Rank 38 and it prolly hits you for 300DMG...only because your higher in rank, not because anything else changed.

SP isn't broken. It was way too hard to level up before solo, and this game encourages playing different classes, so why make things ridiculously hard like they were in FF11?


SP seems indeed broken, ranking up post 31 is like... not worth the time/pain when you get barely 100SP per mobs (solo, apart from leves with GA) and you need 45k SP to rank. I understand this game (more than) encouraging to playing different classes but one should also get the possibility to rank one class. Not everyone likes to play melees or mages or tanks. We all have our affinities when it comes to classes and we shouldn't be obliged to rank every classes because ranking our prefered class becomes far too long (weeks for a casual player to rank 31 to 32, compared to a couple of days to get from 74 to 75 in FFXI) and I'm just talking about past 31, I can't even imagine past rank 40. My point being that at this moment, it is way harder/longer than FFXI to rank up (At FFXI EU launch). I could still solo what seemed a reasonnable amount of exp considering the TNL in FFXI at lvl64 on EP mobs, whereas here, it seems like I'm rewarded peanuts for the amount of SP required to rank up. So yeah, IT LEAVES no choice to rank up classes I will never play again just to feel like I'm accomplishing something durain my playtime and keep my 'enjoyment' at a fairly good level without being depressed and just log out.
I would not mind getting very low SP if it was during a quest with CS and even the reward of the quest wouldn't matter, just to enjoyment to have finish a quest is enough, but getting this amount of SP while grinding just puts me down.

Just my persnnal opinion ^^



Actually you can get from level 50-85 in XI within 15 hours now lol. 400exp a kill in the new areas now that's cooking exp fire ;)

Because 10 SP increased (with Guardian Favour) for a Hedgemole that do twice the amount that it did (1 star - hit for 500 on special, 2 star - hit for over 1,000 on special) is not broken?

Let's just wait :3


Your Rank 34 Lancer, talking about Rank 40 Leves...ever thought about not being high enough for Rank 40s yet? I Trio Rank 40 Leves with 2 friens, one being a healer and were all between 34-37 and we barely are able to get most leves done on 2 stars...and guess what...cause we're not Rank 40 yet...if we would be like 3-4 Ranks higher(so actually reaching the rank the leves are) we would prolly be able to 3 star them easily...so stop ******** about something thats working right for a change. Not to mention you're talking BS about Guardians Aspect(not favour)...with aspect you get 50SP+ more per mob than w/o.

Just because you are able to start Rank 40 leves, does not mean you would be able to solo them with ease, especially when you're 6 ranks below the actual leve rank.

If people want to complain about things, then at least complain about things worth complaining(like content, or PT SP) and actually complain reasonable and not just because you're ****** you can't solo Rank 40 stuff on Rank 34...


Your reading skill must suck terribly. 10 SP for a much harder fight (twice the damage), is it worth it? If I had trouble with the lol hedgemole, I couldnt have killed it and see the SP. And guess what? 3 Stars give another 10 SP extra, 4 stars another 10, and 5 star mobs another 10 but it can pretty much one shot you with anything it does. The way it is now, you DO NOT increase difficulty, because the reward increased is pathetic. 5 Star Humblehearth does do almost twice as much as 4 star Humblehearth does, on r34, for a meager 10 SP increased. Get it?

Lol, I'm blind?

1 star Hedgemole in pt of 3 -> 135 SP with GF
2 star Hedgemole in pt of 3 -> 148 SP with GF
Where's the 30-50 SP increased?

4 Star Doe in Humblehearth -> 120 SP WITHOUT GF
5 Star Doe in Humblehearth -> 132 SP WITHOUT GF
Where's the 30-50 SP increased?

Hedgemole hit the Tanker (r38 GLA) for 900 dmg. Where's the 300 DMG? The only way you get 300 DMG is through Stoneskin + Parry.

Maybe you can calm down and think about what you're saying before you call other people saying bullsh*t.

I've said before, but most of the minority people here still think the SP not broken didn't read it clearly. The problem with current SP system is that there is SP REWARD DOES NOT SCALE UP WITH THE DIFFICULTY OF THE FIGHT, SE WANT/FORCE YOU TO KICK COBLYN **** BECAUSE ITS SUPER AMAZING FAST SP FOR A CRITTER THAT DIE IN A FEW HITS AND DO LOLDMG TO YOU.

13SP more in a PT of 3(divided between 3 ppl, thats 39SP actually)
Not to mention, that I do Rank 40s in a PT of 4...and I get 140ish SP from Hedgemoles on 2 star w/o GA. So meh, whos right now, whos wrong?
And what the **** is wrong with you about dmg taken? I was assuming you were talking about yourself getting hit for 900DMG, not a Gladiator Rank 38...so just change my "Rank+3 and getting 300DMG" to the Gladiators view...let him be Rank 41, and he will get hit for half or even less. Comprehend and post, not just ***** around.

And seriously Guildleve SP is like the only SP not broken atm...you're still just spreading stuff not even half true, or didn't try enough stuff. Higher stars is not meant to GIVE YOU MORE SP, it is meant to GIVE SAME SP, when in Groups. So lets say...you're doing a Leve on 1 star and get like 150SP, now you do that leve on 2 star with 2-3 ppl, you still get 150SP...but SP is ******* divided between PT members and you just don't seem to register that. Do that same leve on the same difficulty on your same rank and you will get like 100SP more per mob, if not more...fact is, you won't be able to solo it though, cause it's meant to be done in a PT...the only way you can solo it, is if you overrank it...which will result in a decreasement of SP(which you see on your Doe example on 4 and 5 star difficulty), due to your rank. Are you just to ****** to do the math?

Now you might think whats the point in doing Leves as a GRP, when I could just solo it on 1 star and get same SP...the difference is...if another person gets the same leve, you can leve link for SP Bonus(did you even try that?) which will give everyone in the group(not just the ones linking the leve) an SP Bonus that nets you 50SP+ a mob easily. We linked Leves with up to 3 ppl and got 250+SP on a mob w/o GA...We even got above 300 with linkin 2 leves+GA.
If you can't get the same leves, therefore can't link it, you can still link share the leves, which will give you more SP overall, cause you can only do 8 leves yourself, but up to 16 in a duo, and 24 in a trio and so on...

So again...stop spreading BS, cause you do right now and you don't seem to even have tested all the possibilities given to you.

PS: My static Leve group just made our leve cycle again yesterday and we got 35k SP on that overall(taking 3h total). We were able to do 2 more leves(between 2-4k more SP), but we were just tired and wantes to go to sleep and stopped.

I won't go on argueing with you from this point on, cause it's clearly visible you just didn't try anything with the current system and just want to get like 500SP on a mob again you fight for 2min...not to forget SP on leves were like 500SP for a complete leve before patch, where you get a certain 1-2k now...

This was the most useless Emergency Patch I have seen in hostory of gaming...

That being said at least they are bothinging to fix some things.

They could at least have pushed some of the other issues at same time.

Since its been a day or two has Anyone notice if they ninja patched anything? that was undocumented?
