It does this already if you had to Level Synch for it. If you run away from it or arent inside the level-synch circle of the FATE, even at 99%, you get the message that you're too high in level to recieve EXP for it.
It's fine as it currently is. This way atleast people without a lot of killing power get a little more time towards the end to finish the fate for max rewards.
Clearly you haven't leveled another class through Coerthas.
That's all anyone does now. Get enough in on the FATE to get gold, then run to the next one. Given that most people who do these FATE's will be at or under level for the FATE, you'll be hard pressed to find any group of five people who could finish, say, The Saint's Wake, or Bellyful. I watched a 34 WAR today, who had done a great job tanking, just up and bite it because every healer and most DPS decided to try to catch Seps and Roc of Ages, so they left, thinking they had enough for a gold.
That WAR died. Then it attacked me. I dumped aggro, and the other three DPS ate it. Then I ran. Reset the FATE and went and did Roc of Ages instead.
Sure, that WAR was pretty low in level compared to the FATE he was tanking, but he was doing fine with healing, holding hate and everything. Besides, isn't that what FF is about? A group of people getting together to take on sh*t far above their level and kicking it's ***? Getting experience after leaving the FATE doesn't encourage any kind of teamwork. It just encourages getting in, doing enough to get a gold, and then moving on to the next one. Which, incidentally, screws anyone who decides to try and tank those FATE's, because now they're stuck holding the proverbial bomb.
I think it does? I remember fighting the Svara FATE which I usually max and was called away from the PC. Instead of the usual 20k + I got around 2k XP.
Sounds like you got failure silver or bronze SG. I've seen that happen too; the usual swarm hits Svara, and soon as she is around 15% or so, most people take off for other FATE's. This leaves maybe 6-8 people to fend off a ******** dragon and a half dozen adds. If you're lucky, one is a healer and the other is a tank. If not, well, then Svara kills everyone and the FATE fails.
