Maybe I can write a guide for it
I'll write it for you.
Step 1: Buy a bot
Step 2: Buy a bunch of materials
Step 3: Run bot 24/7
Step 4: ???
Step 5: Profit
You don't seriously think people believe you have almost 6 crafting jobs level 50 doing it legitimately do you? Not only that, but 2 DoW/M at 50 to go with it. Normally I wouldn't open my mouth, but if you're going to give advice about how to level stuff when more likely than not you didn't legitimately level the stuff yourself, I'm going to have to call you on it. Unless you're playing the game as a team on one account, or you are some sort of machine, I call bot
I try to be helpful, and am in the process of writing guides of different ways to level things so people can get their crafts up faster and cheaper... but before I get a chance to release anything I already have someone pointing fingers.
Everyone on Selbina accuses the Shell I'm in of foul play, and though their might be a few members who have dabbled, none of those of us who are active cheat.
I almost wish I chose to do all DoW/Ms so that I'm not constantly getting accused. Japanese message boards (2ch) is where most of the nonsense comes from. It's funny, the people who are obvious botters all have YouTube videos/Screens of them botting. No one has anything like that on me (I must be so good at hiding, right?) Even though I do all my crafting in front of Bric-A-Brac, or on Ruby Road.
As for my personal situation... I work from home, I sleep very, very little, I play a lot, and really don't leave the house much except for on weekends. I play during the entire Japanese prime time, I play for a good amount of the NA/EU prime time. I'm mostly fluent in Japanese, and I play in an all Japanese shell (with 1 exception, and he posts here too... and whadyaknow he has a ton of 50s too...)
It's not at all possible that I play only with a group of like-minded individuals, who all love MMO grinding? I was possibly the 2nd or 3rd Maat's cap in XI, and was certainly in the first 5 ever. I couldn't have even been 14 years old at the time. My history with the FF Online series so far is a long one. I love grinding, and I'm working really hard to get everything to 50, although my progress has drastically slowed down since the servers went back up, I've only gained 2 crafting ranks since; that certainly doesn't scream "bot!".
There are exceptions to people with a ton of crafting ranks. There's someone else on my server who I'm absolutely certain is legitimate, and he has more ranks in DoH/L than I do by far, now.
Cool group of people. Unfortunate that people don't get to see how we play. We have a good time, and we're pretty content despite how terrible this game is... it's really sad to have people constantly putting us down at every chance.
