Seems very intriguing, but do not expect it to last long. If this works somewhat effeciently than SE will more than likely "fix" it in a few days. Very nice find though

Doubt it.
People have used this method to PL Smn from level 1-5 for years.

Besides it can only be so effecient, Smn is limited to doing it once every 2 hours. If Drk's can get away with what they do, Smn will be under the radar for quite a while.

I agree.

And, the exp you can get from it really isn't *THAT* much more than a ranger Arrowburn pt

You're also limited to finding a smn at the correct level. Everyone can sync down, but that requires syncing down to someone who's at the right level, and no one can sync up.

The last thing smn needs is a nerf.

Meh, I don't think it's necessarily broken; I mean that's how much we would do if we were all level 10. What's SE going to do, nerf the damage of Astral Flow? Plus, I think even SE knows SMNs are having even more trouble with parties now that the level sync is here. If they ninja nerf this, I'm going to quit haha.

Level Synch didn't really bring this concept into play. It's just the first time that anyone has actually thought about and implemented it.

Before Level Synch, there was nothing stopping a group of 6 SMNs gathering together with a Lv75 PLD/RDM buddy to run around and get a huge train of mobs, only to bring them marching over to get a Diamond Dust to their collective face.

What Level Synch does provide is the ability to take a group of higher level SMNs and match them with one Lv10 SMN, and let them gain 20-30k XP or so in a matter of moments, while the lower level SMN gets the benefit of collecting a "Go directly to Qufim. Do not pass Valkurm Dunes. Do not collect 200 deaths." card.

All in all, nice little find, but considering this has always been a potential exploit, I don't see SE nerfing it. The point still remains that it can only be done two times over the course of 2 hours (assuming 3x SMN AF is enough, and a group of 6 can take down two trains of mobs by separating their AF into two sets). A COR could possibly help get some AF back, but one SMN would miss out, leaving 5 for one more run, or maybe two if 2 SMNs can manage it with only their AFs.

This.

If you're going to use this method, it's probably best to have a group of 6 SMNs already level synched and such, then have a high level friend run around and gather them all, then your PT can just blast them all without having to worry about the "kiter" being killed as soon as he jumps in and gets synched.


I know how to do it...our puller just didnt have smn but wanted exp at the same time so we were experimenting to see if we could sync and still get him exp without outside help.

short answer is, yes you can do it so long as you dont ***** up. It just takes alot more preparation.

actually there is a potential for more, it just requires everyone to have access to Al Zahbi.. and lets face it how many people dont... And a Besieged ongoing, if lucky you can all use item to replenish 2hour. go back to dunes, rinse repeat, if fast enough you might even be able to get 3 sets done within timspan of an attack.. if back to back attacks even more.... but for the majority of time yes you would be correct.

OP,

you should change the thread title to something about melee SMN, so this doesn't get widely read/disseminated and consequently nerfed. also, thanks for the idea.

Okay, I did this with lv sync at lv 10. We decided to go astral flow as a group vs 3 at a time to get a better feel for it. THIS IS SICK!
Yes, I was getting 300 EXP a fight, not 200; untill the lv 10 lvd up it dropped to around 250.

Basically, i took 6 ls friends and a willing kiter. We went to buburimu for a lack of parties. He pulled, we brought out our pets, killed all the mobs. Went to Whitegate and jumped in besiged, then ran to the secret beach in dunes and repeated this. Warped, ran back to besiged for 2 hrs again, then proceeded to have out kiter pull **** near every Crawler/Bat/Gob in the first half of the zone in MoS. Besiged was STILL up but due to it being around 5-7 am for everyone, decided to pick up tomorrow. 56-to 6k to lv 59 in 3 fights is hella secksy..

For MoS, we went with 5 smns, and a new player RDM friend of one of our members. Tell you one thing newcomers are amazed at what we can do here. Its a nice "Welcome to FF!" if you ask me. Also being said, you can go with 5 smns and some random friend at lv 10 if low lv smns are not around. It's a great way to show people how fun SMN can be too.

If you havent gathered 5-6 SMNs and a kiter friend by now i suggest you try it out.. it's tons of fun!

On a second thought, I was told a while ago of some servers doing alliance PT's
and getting massive exp due to constant chains. If say, you could find 12 smns while getting chain 20+ that would be 4 large trains that could be killed in one sitting (8 if besiged is up)^^

Beseiged isn't the only way to get Revitalizers. Long before Beseiged even existed Ballista allowed the use of Revitalizers. As long as you have enough Ballista points you can purchase a Revitalizer for use in a match (Usable in either an official match or a Diorama match). Maybe an incentive to participate in ballista.

Holy fudgesicles @@.

Yes, please changed the title. I'd like to exploit this for a few weeks >.> on my SMN

*edit this should be excellent rated @@ so wate up for joo
*edit 2 - you can get up to 4 revitalizers in besiged. 1 at the beginning and 3 more dispersed at 15 minute intervals as long as NPC is not captured. If you're quick imagine getting approx. 100K (that's 100,000) Xp in a little over an hour.

And exploit we shall! to be honest I was hearing about this long before LV sync came out to play. Problem was finding 6 lv 10 smns at once. Not sure how SE can take this one away, they are too worried about LOLAV and his KC DRK's for now. My buddys FFXI windower was showing 98k exp in a hour, hehe. (someone be a doll and rate me up so I can start having more fun on forums w/o logging on my BF przzz?*Big kitty eyes*)

Ok So I've been thinking of this all yesterday and last night (which i wasn't able to play so it plagued me all night) and here's what I've come up with.

First off let me say I'm a big supporter of static partys. I never grab a pickup party and is the reason I only have 1 job at 75 (smn of course).

The requirements for the following static are as follows.
*You Must have Summoner unlocked and >= level 10
*You Must have a job high enough level to be a puller (75 preferably, job doesn't really matter)
*You Must have a few jobs in the 10-20 range.

Heres how it would work, There would be 3 Rounds where everyone would cycle what their duty would be. A Round is all 6 people using their Astral Flow. So this would be every 2 hours at least. Every Round will consist of 2 mob sets. The Party will be broken into 2 groups. Group A, will consist of Players 1-3, Group B will consist of Players 4-6.


Round 1
Mob Set 1
Group A (Players 1-3) will all be Astral Flowing
Player 4 is in charge of being level synch designee
Player 5 can pick any job he wants XP on
Player 6 is in charge of Pulling and is out of party


Mob Set 2
Group B (Players 4-6) will all be Astral Flowing
Player 1 is in charge of being level synch designee
Player 2 can pick any job he wants xp on
Player 3 is in charge of Pulling and is out of party



Round 2
Mob Set 1
Group A (Players 1-3) will all be Astral Flowing
Player 6 is in charge of being level synch designee
Player 4 can pick any job he wants XP on
Player 5 is in charge of Pulling and is out of party



Mob Set 2
Group B (Players 4-6) will all be Astral Flowing
Player 3 is in charge of being level synch designee
Player 1 can pick any job he wants xp on
Player 2 is in charge of Pulling and is out of party



Round 3
Mob Set 1
Group A (Players 1-3) will all be Astral Flowing
Player 5 is in charge of being level synch designee
Player 6 can pick any job he wants XP on
Player 4 is in charge of Pulling and is out of party


Mob Set 2
Group B (Players 4-6) will all be Astral Flowing
Player 2 is in charge of being level synch designee
Player 3 can pick any job he wants xp on
Player 1 is in charge of Pulling and is out of party


I have created this mostly for myself as I am sort of OCD when it comes to planning and I wanted it also to help convince people who could care less about summoner, but whom you may want in your static. Heres how it all breaks down

1/2 of the time you will be forced on Summoner
1/6 of the time you will be the puller and gain no xp
1/6 of the time you will be forced to bring a low level job 10-20
1/6 of the time you will get to gain xp on ANY job you wish.


The 2 camps mentioned by the OP are Perfect in the sense that both can be travelled to very easily. Qufim is an OP away and Bubu is neer Mhaura, Both quick ways to change jobs for your part in all of this.

This is all of course a moot point if you have a character that you can dual box. This is mostly aimed at the people who do not have this as an option and are trying to convince others to come with them. you could just rotate the rounds. I know for me Free time is very limited. But this method only will eat up 30~45 minutes per Round. So it can easily fit in between endgame events when your just looking to kill a little time. Its not like your summoner needs to be geared to go boom.

Cheers
