I didn't reply because the trolling was a little too blatant. You were just begging for someone to criticize so you could respond with your reason for using darts only, as you just did.
Begging nothing; I just thought it was unorthodox enough to be worth mentioning.
Trolling would be more like calling out the forum for being total suckers for spending hundreds of thousands of gil on expendables when they didn't have to. Someone coming in to openly criticize something they do not possess a full understanding of falls under the category of Not My Problem.
All I have to say is, hope you have marksmanship leveled from another job. If so, congratulations on your experience points. If not, enjoy your many hours of skilling up.
Even if I didn't have that, I wouldn't be that concerned. I capped Archery and Throwing on my RDM with one day each. This was eons ago before things like the midlevel skillup rate increase and Martial Master. I'm sure that I could do a similar thing today with COR once it's 75, especially with a dual box.
I don't really intend to use my COR much, if at all, for high level activity anyway. I'm just playing it to help out with lowbie syncs.
Not much of an "achievement" at any rate. Should I also brag to the SCH forum that I got level 30+ SCH in my sleep simply leeching off my friend's SMN-burn party? Would you be impressed if I leveled my RNG to 50+ exclusively by meleeing with axes/daggers and never using a ranged attack?
Plenty of other people are citing their level ups as "achievements" worthy enough to be posted in this thread. I see no reason why I can't do the same.
Also, your comparisons are making me out to be like I'm some sort of leech, which is something that I have to vehemently protest. If anything, I've been the hardest working party member out of all of them -- which I understand is not exactly their faults, as they don't/can't have dual boxes and both healing & pulling roles to worry about. All most of them have to do is engage and WS.
