Theories of Levequest generationFollow

Has anyone wondered if Levequest generation wasn't random. I have wondered this because when leveling my regular jobs I would usually get similar levequest rewards.

1: From the begining I always had a hunch the SP gained on a job had an effect on rewards. I felt this because when I was first concentrating on Pugalist, I got a lot of Pugalist and Lancer Geuildmarks, so much so that it pushed me to also level Lancer. Other jobs - not so much. When I started leveling up Murader, all my guild rewards switched to Murader. As conjurer most of my rewards were conjurer and tharumage. At this point, I felt that rewrads were generated by playtime or SP gained.

2: As I began to gain physical level, I'd get enough statpoints so that I could comfortably keep them relatively even without worrying about reallocating them. Obviously I had them weighted more towards my main melee Pug. Consequently, this is where my rewards started dropping off in everything - DOM reward, DOW reward, and gil. With my stats all balanced, weighted for melee, all my levequests stabalized at 500-999 guildmarks, almost always in Pug, Lnc, and Conj. I didn't pay much attention to it at the time because a patch had just been released, and I attributed the reward drop to SE tweaking. Here is where things get interesting...

3: The other day I was completing a difficult Conjurer, it was neccesary for me to boosts Int and Lightning to 80 (I don't usually pump points past 80.) I left my stats like this, and when the levequests reset, I had the first Tharumage reward I've even seen in weeks, and for almost 2000 before trades. My gil rewards have also gone up.

Now I am wondering - are levequests generated in accordance with stat points. Maybe there is a reason I have not gotten any Tharumage rewards despite having leveled it (I paid more attention to keeping my stats favoring my Conjurer spells). Maybe there is a reason our angry poster has a problem with being rewarded Carpentry guildmarks despit going halfway accross The Black Shroud to deliver goods. At this point, I am going to hypothesise that the more heavily weighted stats are in favor of a class will determine the guildmark reward (or at least the random seed generation)

Here is where you can help:

Do you notice yourself getting consistently similar high rewards favoring one or two classes over another? If you consistently get 1500+ rewards in one or two classes, please post the class and how your attributes and elements are usually balanced.

I'll start:

Leves generated - Lancer Pug, and Tharumage all 1500+
S72; V72; D65; I80; M60; P50
F60; W59; L80; W80; E80; I40

For months my stats was 105 Dex 100 vit and 90 str the 3 others was around 50.While just doing rank 20 leves almost like clockwork 2k+ guild marks for PUG or other rank 10 DOW i never use ,1000 for miner ,800 for fisher,600 for botanist and 500 for random DOH jobs.Since I've been just logging in to do leves only I stopped allocating point when my PUG was rank 24 and my job rank was 30 something.In early January I saw a post about stat max in forum and for fun raised Dex ,Vit and Str close to 120 and the 3 others to 17. I think.I haven't seen one DOH guild mark since I did this while crafting Rank 15 to 25 leves with a score 20 to 80.

I have over 100STR and over 90VIT/DEX on my Lancer and 80% of my guildmark rewards are for CON or THM! The other 20% are for MRD and ARC ...And my "main" elemental stats are: earth, fire and wind.

Another idea that I have begun to throw around, is maybe it has to do with abilities used. Maybe most of my rewards were Lancer, Pug and Conj, because those were the main abilities I used on most jobs. I would get the odd Murader reward (usually low) and the only murader ability i ever use is Bloodblath. Maybe I've been getting my conjurer points from stoneskin and cure, and it wasn't until I started fitting sacrifice into the mix that Tharumage popped up. For the poseter who had jacked Str and Vit but still got mostly Conj and Tarumage, do you rely heavily on those abilities when playing melee?

I did 2 leve cycles since I last posted I raised 1 pie, mind or int stat 50 and 1 of the DOH leves gave me guild marks.The last cycle I raised the 3 close 60 and 4 DOH gave me guildmarks I kept DOH leves at 15 and 20 and Bentbranch with rating scores low as 21 and 22 giving Guild marks. I think 60 is the caps stat max for rank 15. ------I'm getting guildmarks each leve cycle at least know to keep points in DOH stats if i want to get guidmarks.

it would be cool if there were actually fun things to do in this game, so people didn't have to resort to thinking about crap like this.
