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.
