Casual friendly does not mean "Get to level cap in two months". The fact that you're rank 41 and have the mentality that you need to utilize every leve before each reset proves that you are not a casual player. Don't go knocking the game because YOU have the desire to hit level cap ASAP. That is not how casual players play.
You got me wrong then, I have no desire to reach level cap ASAP.
I skip alot of fish leves because it's faster to just stay fishing then to run/teleport to all 3 cities grabbing leves then run from hole to hole catching fishies. I'm at 11k from 41 fisher and that is about 2 hours of fishing, that's without leves. You'd know that because once you finish fish leves they are done, no need to turn them in. I do want to get to 42 fisher ASAP but that is because I can finally use my Yew fishing rod
and also other gathering gear is available at rank 42
I have like 6 Gridania leves spread all over the Black Shroud which I have to turn in so I can get new Carpenter leves and try to get my Carpenter to rank 23 so I can attempt to repair my own fish rod. And since leves give better xp then any amount of chestnut logs you chop up into lumber/planks, I rather benefit from them. I left 4 local leves unused last night because I was tired of all the running around, I just wanted to go back to fishing.
**** if I tried to do all the fish leves alone then I'd never have enough time to do 8 leves ranging from 10 minutes to 30 minutes each, depending on how the quest fishies bite, in a 3 hour gaming session before it's time to sleep and then back to work the next day and come home to find 8 new fish leves.
Besides, people are starting to ask me to fish them up certain fishies, which aren't caught in the grades of water that give me good SP but I don't mind, I rather fish up 10 blind fishies and make someone else happy then fish up 10 stacks of maiden carp which end up at the npc vendor.
My plans for tonight were, until the maintenance notice, fish for 2 hours and get to 41 fisher, then run around turning in those leves in the Black Shroud and grab some new ones before it's time for bed.
