and the game sucks alone
I actually think it's better than FFXI, solo wise. Even though I talked to Sean & Shadows on Sunday, I'm in Ul'Dah & they're not so I'm still LS-less. Granted, I've been doing quite a bit of crafting (Gathering all the materials for my first PUG weapon upgrade has been a challenge!) so my physical level (15) is quite a bit higher than my class level (9) so I think that probably makes soloing easier.
The only challenge I've had leve wise (besides failing some synths) is when you have to fight multiple mobs & the delay to target is such that I get raped.
But since death doesn't end the leve, its easy enough to march right back & finish it.
Now if I could only find a reliable source of wind shards for crafting... Ul'Dah is wind shard retarded.
9 PUG, 9 Goldsmith, 9 Leather, 7 Blacksmith, 6 Marauder, 5 Alchemy, & 4 Miner atm with a physical level of 15. Got most of the camp teleports around Ul"dah too if anyone needs to piggy back on my teleports. Some of those walks are long & aggro filled. Edited, Oct 5th 2010 1:06am by Omegavegeta
