I've been working on leveling subjobs to 49 for the coming Version Updates and level 99 and it got me thinking about Fields of Valor's effect on EXP partying. I know with the game old and dying and whatnot that parties can be difficult to come by. But I'm wondering if doing Fields of Valor reduces that further?
If I was out soloing pre-FoV and I got a /tell about a party, unless it sounded completely retarded, I'd drop what I was doing to go join it. Now I'll think, "If I go, then I miss out on 880 EXP if I solo six more mobs... Also, this party will probably end up being retarded."
Meh. I guess I'm selfish and cynical.
Also, Red Mage 49!
I finally hit 49 on my Red Mage! It's one of the two "high priority" subs. It was sort of like when I leveled Dancer to 37: It's impossible to kill, but kills things slow as shit. Also, Phalanx ia awesome.That, and Monk mobs don't hit very hard.I ended up getting about 30k worth of crap in ~5 levels.
I also got two hilariously worthless Evoliths:Who let the guy who designed Evoliths drink printer toner when he was working?
