Hey guys, finally decided to come back.

Is the game still free or have they implemented monthly subscription?
Easy to start over, still daily levecaps?

Thanks

Welcome back. I came back to the game last week to look over some of the minor changes that were done. It still looks like the Devs have a long road ahead of them. But at least they're moving in a forward direction. Have you checked the latest posting from the devs on the official site?

Can you go into detail on how SP is easier to get now? I'm currently leveling Conjurer, Fishing, Weaving, Botany, Mining, Alchemy, and Carpentry. I know abbout the leves but you're restricted on how many that you can take. Alsoall the gathering, crafting & battle/magic arts all share the same pool of allowed leve that you're allowed to take. I guess if one is lucky enough to be on high pop server, you can probably find a team, but I found myself on a low pop server with LS that are only interested with R.50 players.

So is there a non-leve or non-grinding alternative to earn SP for all my jobs?

I think he's probably refering to a multiplier bonus which is applied to mobs when your character is between r1-23.

Basically if a mob would otherwise give you 400SP, you would get a bonus multiplier on that SP based on the diff level between u and the mob.

Not all true. Crafting leves have a different pool than the Gathering/battle/magic pool. 8 in each pool. so in answer to the OP yes still a cap per 36 hours. (although you can double up if you collect leves before the leve reset or share leves in a party and in this way do more leves but...)

Sorry to hear about LS's on your server, on wutai our ls is recruiting openly.

Also the SP calculations are improved with benefit for parties and tougher mobs. Personally I dont find it easier I find it better

Behest. Every 30 minutes at every camp a Battlewarden will pop. Click on him, sign up for the behest, and make a party with the other people that have signed up for the behest. It's like a free leve you can run every 30 minutes.

There are also lots of side quests in every city. Some of them are of the "go kill 8 mobs in a particular area" variety. Those will get you SP, as well as gil/gear/potion rewards (some rewards are not so good, but some are pretty good).
