Yeah i totally agree with you.
In FFXI you had like 5 linkshells w/ 18+ members each waiting for the mob for its spawn window (21 through 24 hours) so you all stood there waiting for it to pop in 1 small spot, and whoever had the best hacker tools won. you had 0% chance without them because bots could claim before players could target.
I just don't want a repeat it in 14 because id rather spend 3 hours killing NMs, not 3 hours gathering and waiting for its spawn window to start.
Some NMs would spawn 3-5 days instead of 21-24 hours. Was just a mess.
World NMs are cool but only when you can actually legitimately compete. Force spawn, storyline, leve, company spawned, guildleve purchased, all cool with me ;)
