Honestly Al, I have never seen a quality SMN burn on our server, and I've done it with a lot of different people. The one time we actually got decent exp, I think we got up to like chain 15-20 at best, and the exp payout wasn't even worth the time it took to get to the actual burning.
Consider these time wasting factors: Actually getting everyone to Bastok, going over strategy, waiting for pullers(s) to collect mobs, getting party to camp safely, properly burning through the mobs. In a good run (for me, not in general) all that took like an hour.
Now consider other possibities that will waste even more time: Waiting for a second party to show up to Bastok because leader decided last minute that he wants his friend who just logged in to get in on it so now you need a whole extra set of people, waiting for leader to explain strat 3 times while people ask dumb questions, pullers(s) dying because they picked a bad job to pull on and have no way of healing and the party is taking too long to get to the mob killing, low level party members getting aggro and dying, members going afk/DCing randomly, people not listening in general, people showing up without yag drinks etc., inexperienced leaders who don't know how to properly burn.
The best burn I ever had took over 2 hours from start to finish and I only ended up with maybe a couple thousand more exp than when I started. I know you don't like dealing with time wasting BS, which seems to be pretty much every SMN burn pickup party on our server. So unless you know a group of people who actually know what they're doing, I'd suggest going another route and avoiding all the irritation.
Again, this is just my personal experience so no offense to anyone on Bismarck who may have actually found/started a pickup SMN burn that worked.
