Hi all white mages ^^; I've recently started playing after a 3 year hiatus and started levelling my whm again. It's currently level 62 and just want to have a bit of a vent I guess.
Is traditional partying a lost art these days? I thought to myself that I should have some fun tonight and do toramas with a 61 sync party. I'm sure most of you know that toramas are like the white mages trial by fire. I loved it when i first hit 60 3 years ago as it kept me on my feet like no tomorrow. Lots of paralyna/silena and on top of that hasting and debuffing.
But how come EVERY party even in the 60s has a power level these days? The party was whm nin blu thf cor pup. Unorthdox yes, but it had potential to be fun. The thf brought a 75 rdm to powerlevel and would pull when the last mob was at 5%. My mp never got about 150/800 even with a corsair since I was determined to keep my nin alive with -nas/hastes/debuffs. The poor blu was on 20 mp 85% of the time and well, a blu with no MP is more useless than a whm with 0 club skill hitting robber crabs.
Has this potential for partying degraded this much that everyone wants to just burn pink birds (and marsh murres) these days? Is there no longer any skill involved? i Pride myself in being able to hit -na buttons fast enough to ensure that the status is on my tank for just a micro second
