Went to Garlige past this morning to try and beat up a wall, but the Allied tag npc wasn't where he normally is. Any ideas? I haven't done campaign in awhile so...

Garlaige isnt beastman controlled this week, so no rock smashing.

Yeah, I'm a big fan of it as well for SMN. Not so enthused about defending against beastmen, however.

Because you can be doing something else just waiting for music changes?

I'm sure I could rake in a ton of xp tanking stuff as RDM/NIN. But thats a lot of effort, and I sure as heck cant do it from work. But I can take any job, sub THF for flee, and go beat up rocks and still get something decent versus just sitting in my mog at work.

Spent the past 2 days without tags, skilling up some weapons to the ~145 range. Really mindless and easy, but I'm sad skillups stopped so early. I was thinking it was going to continue to ~170 or so.

I now have two new questions.
I have been doing campaigns like a madmith because my 30 days are almost up, so..
first, what exactly does, 'you have less than a day left' equal to? :/
second, does anyone know approximately how many points you have to earn for each medal? I haven't found anything about that yet.

Thanks for the info!

I hope I don't lose my medal today. Can't do campaigns until after dyna tonight. :(

Ick, I agree with Pogle.

EXPing while afk and NOT LEECHING is the hottest thing since two-boxing your own outside cure bot.

Eleana:

If you go for an evaluation every 5 days (the shortest time interval possible) it only takes about 5000 experience earned in campaign in those 5 days to rank up. If you wait longer than 5 days the amount required increases as well. I've not checked in on the research on it lately, but I've just been going by a 1000xp per day rule of thumb and so far its worked for me. I ranked up Monday afternoon, I'll rank up again friday, and I'll earn enough xp to rank up once again next week before we lose beastman-controlled garlaige again. Then I'll take a week off probably until beastmen regain the region, and do ~10,000xp before trying to rank up once again.

You can check the BGWiki and the otherwiki for explanations, I'm sure they've got a lot more info than when I looked at it a while back and learned the 5k thing. I believe some theories were out there that its actually AN earned, not xp, that counts for ranks, which means it could technically take less than 5k xp since you sometimes cap xp early, etc, but I've got no confirmation one way or the other.

I'm sad, been sitting at HolyKnight for over two weeks now. I'll probably go get the "keep my medal" evaluation 5days before the update so I can rank to wings as they get added. (P.S. Saruta with 4 sets of npcs is like the Holy Land to a 40+ SCH, CureIII-ga for ~130mp on 20+ npcs? yay)

Thanks Pogle. I am depressed now, though. If I read you correctly, (and since I didn't campaign for 20+days) I need a crapload to level. Hopefully, I can just end the evaluation and retain my medal.

Well, there is the chance that the NIN is tired of partying or only has 20 min before logging. Bad merit pts can burn you out fast. Also they could be at the 5 day mark and just need to rank up.

I do agree though, if you are meritting in campaign because you think it's good exp, you are not doing it right.

Is it hurting you? Why get worked up about it if they're having fun?

To each their own, really, when it comes to beating up fortifications. Unless their own is dragging a swarm of mobs over to the group. Thats the only action that really negatively impacts garlaige[s].

Considering how many of them I see end before the fortification even appears, or before you can even get to the room, I'm not really seeing much actual correlation between damage done and when the battle ends.

Yesterday morning was hilarious, there were a couple JP players getting very irate when there were like 6 in a row that ended almost immediately after they arrived at the room.

Edit: the -> them

I hate it when I know there are the makings of a good pt in a zone with me doing campaign. Inevitably I /sea all and see that these lamers are all that's needed to make a decent pt. Oh well, nothing wagered, nothing lost.

I generally do Campaign only in the mornings while I am getting ready for work. I sit at my PC and do my make-up, hair, etc. while casting and fighting the lovely fortification.
Do I prefer campaign? No way! I want a party over that any 'ole time, but sometimes you just don't have the time to sit and wait for a party invite OR enough people to create your own party.
I find that Garlaige is perfect for recapping my lost exp from Dynamis.

Any free time I have (which is more and more limited) belongs to leveling ranger and farming ingredients for crafting.
