Perhaps it would be best to go back to the beginning.No, no. After my first three hours in the game, but before LFP again in Bastok Markets [S] tonight. We'll go back to last night.I had hit 49 Red Mage and ended my Makara/Sahagin genocide. I went to Bastok Markets [S] to figure out my next move.It turns out I have lots of sets of crap armor stored from pre-Level Sync gear scaling. I stood around tied up in NPC conversation to keep my partial Allied Ring charge from wearing off.
After a while I got an invite to a party in Kazham. Being an optimist (read: I don't want to solo mobs as lolmeleeWHM) I eagerly accepted. Several more casts of Regen than I enjoy later, and I hit 39! We lost our leader/Level Sync'd to guy, so we moved to Yhoator Jungle.And I hit 40! Lots more Regen casts, and when did Square-Enix make Barsleepra not LOL?, and I hit 41!Now I find myself at the new halfway point on a road started five years ago.
