Actually doing leves in parties is way more beneficial than soloing them. I don't think party SP is broken at all. At least for leves.
Way more beneficial?
You can 4 man a R40 one star, get 1/6 the shards, kill monsters in ten seconds, and get 100SP/mob.
Or you can 1 man a R40 one star, get 100% of the shards, kill monsters in 20 seconds, and get 150 SP / mob.
Or you can 4 man a R40 three star, get 1/6 the shards, kill monsters in 2 minutes, granted you don't die, and get 140SP/mob.
God I hate people talking stuff thats just complete and utter BS.
There are leves for Rank 40 that are way better than others(the Necro Page drop ones)
Doing those in a group is WAY MORE BENEFICIAL, than doing anything solo.
Ever tried LINKING leves, or did you miss out on that completely?
We even do Rank 30s, cause there are 2 that are still really good on Rank 40+ if you do them on 5 Star and link them.
My leve static is a group of 4 people...we try to link the really good leves as much as possible.
Short example(and this is based on facts I witnessed and done several times now)
Camp Broken Water
Leve: Necrologos: Reniene Reveries
3way linked+Guardians Aspect@ 3 stars
On Rank 40-42 EACH mob gives 350SP!! One group consists of 3 mobs, netting you around 1k SP. If you luck out on drops, you get to kill like 6-8 groups at least, if you're **** lucky on bad drops, you get to kill up to 12 groups(best we got so far)
Thats 12k on ONE LEVE right there on a group of 4 people and the leve takes you around 15minutes.
Doing this leve solo, w/o aspect nets you like 120SP per mob and takes double the time to kill...which results in like 3k if you're lucky...
And this is just one of the leves we do...to give you a sum up of what we got last night on Leves...we did 5 Leves(all 3-4 way linked plus aspect on) 3 of those are Rank 30s(and we are all 40-42), 2 of them Rank 40s. We got a total of 48k SP on 5 Leves...I repeat 48.000 SP on FIVE Leves. We usually use the "rest of our leves" for low rank jobs, since there are just these 5 leves that are really nice, all others only net like 3-4k SP max.
So before you call something broken and "grouping not being beneficial"...try it out ffs...cause you're wrong!
PS: Our record on SP on ONE leve is at 16k so far...oh **** yeah...I'd call that broken too...
People complaining about sh*t, thats not broken, only end up getting the things nerfed that are still good at this current time...so stop ********* you will only ruin it.
If you want to ***** about SP being broken, ***** about Party SP outside of Leves...cause thats where the issue is right now...but everything else is just perfectly fine!
PPS: Omg, its so funny to see people getting rated down for stating facts, that SP in leves is better if you do it in a group, rather than solo, and people complaining that leve SP is broken, get rated up...the ZAM boards really are the same they always were...pile of nubs who rather ***** about stuff, before even trying it...
Please sub default my post...cause right now its almost as giving advice to people too dumb to use the Leve system properly and I'd rather not get this spread on how leves do work fine lol Edited, Dec 18th 2010 3:01pm by Shezard Edited, Dec 18th 2010 3:02pm by Shezard
