How exactly does fatigue work? Just hit fatigue on my main (favorite) class, when can I go back and earn max XP again? Do I really have to go fish, craft, or level another class until next week? Anyone who has hit fatigue, how long until it's reset for you?

Fatigue is calculated from the day (of the week) in which u started that class and will usually only happen when you get 80k+ SP on that week. Every day of the week you will experience what people call the hard reset which means you can once again go up to 80K SP till you experience fatigue again.

Acording to SE there is also a soft fatigue by which by either logging off or getting SP on another class the fatigue you have on the original class is reduced but I dont think anyone got a calculation on that so it is mostly a trial whether you go down to normal SP before the hard reset or not.

When you first reach surplus you get a -10% reduction. Each time you reach another surplus rank you get another 10% reduction.

Don't really have to stop when you turn yellow.

oh? How do you know? I just hit the point where it says "You earned 100 surplus conjurer points due to fatigue"... or something along those lines... and my xp (100000/2000000) is yellow. How do you know when youre to the next rank (20%)?

You get a message when you go into the next surplus rank. And you see your sp go down another 10%...

You don't have to go level another job. You can continue on with your favorite class and just get sp/xp taking the 10% hit. Depending on how much you play/grind sp, it is unlikely you will get past the 2nd level of fatigue. If you are a bit more hardcore, then you may get upwards of a 30 to 40% penalty, but the people that are that hardcore don't generally mind, they just grind on through.

For me, whatever class I am leveling is almost always in fatigue. The few hours a week I get out fatigue just seems like a weekly bonus to me.

So basically, grind through, or pick up a secondary job or craft.

fatigue is also bugged.

i have had it go into yellow when it was supposed to have reset, then go back white only a few mobs later. i got lucky once and it didn't go yellow for a whole reset when i clearly made way over 80k SP (in 2 days). i had one day where it kept going yellow to white to yellow to white and i didn't log off, and i didn't switch my job.

honestly unless you play 24/7 the fatigue won't really effect you. i level 2 jobs at once trading off every level. i have gotten to the third tier once, and have never seen red SP.

No no, you earn the freedom to play another class. Isn't that how fatigue was being described at the game's release?

While on DoW, fatigue is really nothig to worry about. As stated previously in this thread, just power through it, 10/20% less SP per mob is still way more than 0% gained while waiting for it to reset.

DoH is a different story, those percentage points add up to a considerable amount of wasted resources while grinding. Either switch to a different craft when you hit yellow, or just take a crafting break period, unless of course you are grinding a cheap recipe, then sometimes powering though isn't really a big deal.

DoL fatigue is different as well, you'll hit "gathering" fatigue before actual fatigue.
This is where you've hit an invisible quota of items gathered, and your success will bottom out. You'll end up running from point to point with very little results (or in the case of fishing, either hooking nothing, or losing 75-85% of anything you do hook), resulting in a huge waste of time, unless you are into honing your marathon ability or you're really into losing lures for no good reason ...

Even though they'll be getting rid of it, here is a link that a player made to help other players understand it better. He did a very good job on the video.

Too bad the horizontal growth is going to be removed (kinda) because of the job system.

...for about another eight days, at which point fatigue, surplus, and the notion of "bonus" experience is all being removed from the game. :D

yeah, fatigue is removed, but so is surplus sp. One can only assume this means GA, or the mobs will give out even less sp than before. Mob parties on the high level mobs instead of leves will become the new way to level

Just my -2 gill

"Remember back in the day, when FFXIV had the fatigue system?"
