It's not going to make 75s and people near 75 to party in the Dunes, of course not, but that's just trying to disprove it by taking the most extreme example available. Parties in certain ranges, like say, 45-65, generally gain about the same xp. It also adds for one major thing when partying- you can basically play with ANY jobs with your friends now. Too many times have myself and almost everyone else been caught asking everyone "Hey let's go level", and they don't happen to have a job within 2 or 3 levels of them. Oops (Not to mention all the stupid times we find ourselves with no WHM, RDM, BRD or some other key job that screws us over needing to wait 30 minutes for one to show up). I think as someone who does the small things in the game like Garrison, you can appreciate a feature that encourages more play with your friends. :P

As far as xping goes, this is the best thing they could've added. I honestly can't think of any downsides to this. Scaling equipment is nice because it's just plain annoying to get level-appropriate gear between the steep cost of some of them, and more importantly, the limited inventory space of the game.

With level-cap missions and quests...really, how often have you seen people go out and buy say, a PCC just to do those things? The scaled level 75 equip (With appropriate mods) will not be much worse than the cheapest gear available people randomly buy off the auction house the day of the run.

Another thing to keep in mind with that is the fact that the majority of key-piece level cap gear are staple things for most players to have on-hand anyway. SH is level 57, Haubergeon is 59, list goes on. In fact, a crapload of it will most likely be BETTER if they do linear scaling. Example: Promyvion. If I take in some of my best stat mod pieces, this is I'll end up with (Anything I don't list isn't worth mentioning probably).

Optical Hat: 4 Accuracy
Chivalrous Chain: 1 STR, 2 Accuracy
Kirin's Osode: +4 to every single stat
Seiryu's Kote: 6 AGI, HP +20
Sniper Ring: 3 Accuracy
Ulthalam's Ring: 2 Accuracy, 2 Attack
Amemet +1: 7 Attack
Warwolf Belt: 2 STR, 2 DEX, 2 VIT
Byakko's Haidate: 6 DEX
Ninja Kyahan: 2 AGI

Also for someone who's played as long as I have, I have to say my gear is at best above average (Save maybe a few pieces like Osode and Haidate). Only exception I can possibly think of that can't benefit from these stats under level caps are Paladins at the lower level caps where Defense is still worth a damn.

You should come back Parn. Then we'll all laugh at you.

At least I will.

I remember when they changed it so that searching through seeking people sets the level to any level like a year ago, instead of just searching +-2 levels from yours. Back then it made no sense and was a retarded feature, and people had to go through the hassle of changing the level settings themselves...

And now, it might actually be useful.

EDIT: Then again, with all the people running around seeking meripos at 75, we're going to have to adjust it to search people within a reasonable range anyway. Higher-level players arn't going to want to play with lower level players since that would result in less xp/hour, unless they're a usually unwanted job like THF or something.

HOLY SHIT. This is the best update news I've heard in a long, long time. Between lowering dynamis and limbus cost, adding relic armor for TOAU jobs and final updates to Mythic Weapons, this has got to be the best update I've seen a long while.

I can't wait.

Reminds me of all the people who do nothing but complain about movie sequels/adaptations coming out the past few years (Die Hard 4, IJ4, Transformers, etc) and how they "shame" the previous work. That really gets on my nerves.

Hey, she's lying down, maybe she's still dead...

Oh who am I kidding, they wouldn't have her body if she wasn't still alive. I guess I don't really care since her death was a really lame one anyway.

If you want us to help you out sometime you should probably tell us your character name Fei. :P

Got THF to 75 off campaign a while ago.
I'm at Wings of Honor for campaign but I'll probably get demoted since I'm being lazy recently.

omgz, this could be the start of a beautiful...tolerance.

Well you guys know I've been wanting to join you on THF for a while now...all comes down to when you guys run though. About 10k TNL to 75 and I'm going to dedicate myself to meriting for a while after I hit 75.

And Fei, I doubt you have to buy a new copy of the game to start playing again if all you did was simply cancel your content IDs.

Frankly I think he's gotten his account hacked, and he confessed to a GM which probably means he'll lose his account even though he got it back. Pretty sure that's enough of a punishment for him. No need to troll him like this, Tony. =P

Edit: Aaaand now that Ramza has responded to you, I suppose it will now spiral into quite an epic thread which will end with a lock...which is kind of odd considering how with Journal threads you have to end up making another one after the last one gets locked.

I've not finished CoP, but I've read a few spoilers, and from what I understand,

Code: [Select]
There are 5 protocrystals. Dem, Mea, Holla, Vazhl and Al Taieu. Years ago when the Zilart tried to enter the land of the gods through Tu'Lia (As described in RoZ), the Wyrmking Bahamut destroyed Al Taieu. I'm not completely aware to the exact details since I've only read bits and pieces. But at any rate, for some reason Al Taieu was sent to the bottom of the sea (Some say it's a different dimension altogether), and that's why you access it through the protocrystals, or the crags.

Also, promyvion, from what I know, is a manifestation of the "emptiness" found inside some Zilart. The Emptiness is formed from Promathia's desire to die...or something like that, this one I'm very unsure of.

As for THF...dunno, on Catoblepas my damage nearly double when they uyse Berserk, and that's a 25% reduction in defense if I'm not mistaken. Wish they gave better attack gear in this game, most attack gear is complete crap, giving like 4-5 attack which doesn't really merit it to be worn above other stats that get way more boosts.

And uh... Hitomi? Her voice grates on me in English.

I found Hitomi incredibly annoying regardless of who was voicing her. =P

Take a look at that. In the last 24 hours he's sold a noble's tunic, a pluto's staff, and hedgehog bomb. "Levrang" isn't known as a character to anyone I've talked to, yet he sells high-level gear every day. My brother saw him in Upper Jeuno and his title was "Adventurer," he's lvl 1. I think we've found an RMT account who steals...hmm...

There's a whole organization of RMT who are using the first names of every server. On Bahamut there's a bunch of characters named Bahxxxx, and Leviathan has Levxxx, and so on.

Hope you can get your account back, I always key-in my password now with the virtual keyboard thing they give us, and I never save my password either. Pretty sure that helps.

Random crap.

Last week, sky had some pretty lame drops.

This week I was a bit more lucky though.

I tanked NIN/DRK for the first time, which is the first time this LS ever let me main tank something. For the most part it went pretty smooth, but our second Suzaku still had some pretty lame-o drops. :P

Random conversation time.
