Ok, I haven't gotten that far into GC, are you saying it's required to fill out the GC hunting log in order to advance in rank at some point? Or are you just trying to do it to get more seals? Also, it seems like a bunch of the mobs are just regular, non-leve mobs... do more leve-based mobs show up on the higher tiers? Thanks in advance, and sorry to hear about your frustrations.
For the first couple ranks all you're going to need is Company Seals to get promotions. But when hopping from Private Tier to Sergeant Tier, you're forced to complete the full first page of Hunting Log targets given to you by your Grand Company (oh, and also hand over a bunch of Seals still, too).
And that's correct, most
of the targets are just regular monsters, with some exceptions being monsters you can only find in the raid dungeons, such as in Halatali. That isn't too bad, really; besides, you're going to need to go dungeon raiding sooner or later at those levels, so you'll get them whether you mean to or not.
But yeah, then you have the leve-spawned marks, and as people have mentioned on the forums, it is a real crapshoot. Some people get lucky, other people blow dozens of leves for nothing. And yes, they will show up on later pages. Page 2 has something around 2-3 rare leve pops as well, so you can expect them all the way up the progression path of pages.
