Hello, my fellow FFXIV players!
I have noticed that it is fairly common for people to deliberately fail leves just before completion so that they will surely be able to do them again at the next reset. I thought this was rather odd when people that I was grouping with kept doing this, but I can see why now. It is beneficial for one or both of these reasons:
1. to be able to leve-link with your linkshell mates/friends
2. because, let's face it, some leves just give better SP than others (like, for example, R40 leve Dunesfolk for Dinner)
To clarify, I am not talking about any glitched leves that may exist (I hear there is one Necrologos leve that has a mob spawning bug that allows for mega SP, but that isn't what I'm talking about here).
But my question is: is this practice allowed? That is, is it against the rules or something that one could theoretically "get in trouble" for doing?
I am just curious about this and would be interested to hear what you guys think of it. On one hand, I do think it would be awesome to be able to do the best leve(s) every reset, but I don't want to be doing something that I shouldn't be. It just seems so common though.
Thanks for reading! ^_^ And my apologies if this has already been discussed.
