Party Party Party!!!....

Now before i start i should say i'm still enjoying FF11 and in my humble opinion it is still one of the best MMO's presently in the world.

Now i know FF11 is a grindfest i know im not going to level very quickly and i know that the best way to level up is in a party and i know pretty much every player in the game knows this too...

...so why in the name of all that's holy after spending the better part of three hours waiting on a party handing out a few heals and buffs to passers by and chatting to the rest of the link is it such a bloody chore when i get a party group?

I'll tell you....BAD PULLS!!

the very first thing i had to learn in the game was how to play my class, im a Red Mage and as such it is my job to stand back with the casters with wand in hand (O_o) and buff the party with heals while enfeebling the enemy and throwing a few elemental attacks to keep up the damage...

...not too hard...

..so why if a relative nub like me can understand his party role is it so damn hard for people that have been playing the game for a while to do there's?
seriously as of yesterday i was almost Lv22 (less than 700xp) but due to a series of bad party's and worse pulls i ended up deleveling to 20 and struggling back to 21 instead. It may not be my place to complain but seriously WTH?

maby i was just spoiled by having such a good link and been lucky to get reasonable party's of late but the lack of good players at the 20-30 level is killing me.

oh well rant over.

It;s cause peopple before level 20 just solo, and they learn to be 'jacks of all'. They get use to being the one getting hit that they never switch to 'party mode' and play any sort of role. They just want to keep playing as "the one hero" instead. Even if they cant damn well take a hit from a mob, that nub mage will pull anything if he did it solo before.
Thats just my take.

Or, they think being in party makes them invincible.

Yeah parties do usually suck around 9-30, but they get slightly better @ 30+ then they get rly good at 50. I'm not sure if it was lvl 40 it gets really good and fast 'cause I can't remmeber. :( Oh well... you will get past that stage some day. :P
