So how are leves overall after the patch while soloing when it comes to SP? Better? Worse? Same?

depends, solo you need to move up you can't take advantage anymore (I was still doing 5 stars in lower camps on my PGL with good result, didn't work so well today). However the SP isn't bad, it's just not uber. That's a good thing. Leves should be a suppliment and a way for solo or short time folks to make progression, and they still do. I haven't recorded the difference between leves with and without GA yet, so we'll see what happens in that respect.

ive never had any gripes with you and so i have to respectfully dissagree with one statement.
solo players should be able to utilize guildleves as a means to gain levels, however on my THM i did two leve quests at 2 stars (i was getting owned on 3 stars) and only gained a total of about 1.5k exp in about 45 mins with the two leves.
i agree partying should stomp on soloing, but soloing for levels is like soloing for levels pre FFXI SCH/DNC expansion, for the masochists.

Hmm. I got 6,800 SP just from the finish reward (about 225 per kill after that) from each rank40 leves I did on my Pug44, so you would get more than me assuming you do them at 5 stars like I do.

I can't understand how you could do so low as 1.5k by adding up the kill SP and the quest SP together; that would mean like 500 sp per leve, (500x2 = 1,000) and less than 100 sp per mob killed! No way it's that low, even on 2stars.

Nope it's a fair thought.

For me the R40 leves @R38 netted about 250sp per mob and then at the end I think (sorry I don't remember from last night) I got around 2k. Having not seen what the changes are having linked leves I can't fully speculate, but it feels like leves are a suppliment. Some one else was getting 20k+ on 5 leves (assuming solo) so it's still a steady movement forward. Much faster than just taking down 1 mob at a time for 20-50 sp each.
