This is a post copied/pasted from ffxionline.com.
So, I had to lvl whm from 35-37 to match my 37 blm now that I'm 72 rdm and on the fast track to 75 xping in the new zones. I put up flag in the afternoon after doing the sleepga2 NM with some random JPs in the morning (woot! Big $$).
So, I'm goofing around with goldsmithing when some guy spam tells me asking if I want to start a pt with him (he's war/mnk). I was afk, but come back to 5 of these. I get a phone call and have to meet someone so I tell him I can't right now but maybe in 30 min or so. After meeting the person, I put flag back up and someone from the guys party he's managed to get together asks me to join then the original guy. I say sure. When I join, I notice this a blm, but THREE wars, and they're all rank2. "Uh oh," I think. Then the leader tells everyone to head to crawler's nest. Now, the group is 34-35, and I'm thinking we're too low for the nest, but it's been so long since I've been there I figure I could be mistaken. So, I'm heading to the stables and ask, "Who's our 6th?" He says, "We don't have one. I've asked EVERYONE, so we're just going to get started and go with 5 until we can find a 6th" I say, "Er, no thanks." and drop.
I put flag back up in a little while and the leader asks if I'll join if they get a 6th. I say, "I'm sorry, but your pt scares me."
He asks, "Why does it scare you?"
I say, "3 wars, all rank 2, willing to go with 5"
He says, "Well, we were only going to go with 5 till we got a 6th."
I don't say anything then he says, "I got a 6th. A Nin. Want to join?"
I know the party isn't going to be that great, and I forgot Nins aren't very good tanks until 37, but I join anyway.
We go to crawler's nest and it takes every single drop of mp from me and the blm to kill one crawler. I mention Garliage probably being better so we all agree to go there. A couple people don't have warp, so I just run with them back to Jueno.
Ok- we get to garliage. There's a pt at the entrence so we decide to go to the gate. There's a pt at the gate too, but it looks like we're going to be ptying there. Ordinarily I wouldn't do that, especially because you're basically ontop of eachother there, but I really just wanted to finish lvling my sub, and had been there recently with blm and thought it could support two pts.
They aren't fighting tho and there's only 4 of them. One of them says, "Uh, we're camping here ya know lol"
I make a joke and say, "What a coincidence, so are we!"
Then she starts calling the pt "nubs" and mocking their ranks. Ironically, I had looked down upon them earlier for having rank2, but now I was unified with them towards the goal of getting my goddamned sub leveld.
So, basically insults and /slap emotes are exchanged. We start xping, and her pt hasn't done anything yet.
Then some high lvl guy shows up and says, "Hmmm, you know beetle jaws are hard to come by I think I'll farm here for awhile."
He was from the other pts linkshell. So basically, he starts killing all the mobs. Then like 2 other people show up and start killing them too. By this point, the other pt was xping too. The funny part was we were still getting plenty of mobs to kill. The not so funny part was when they start cheering when there's a link and someone in my pt dies.
Soon, one of our melee says, ********** this, I'm getting a 75 pld and rdm to come here to kill their mobs and plvl us." They do eventually get there, but I think the drama had worn off and everyone just wanted to get xp, so they plvled us and I ended up nuking/banishing my way for the last half of 36 until 37. We did move camp after the leader left, but it's RIGHT by a pop point and basically if the plvls weren't there we surely would've died a couple of times. The spot by the gate is safe and can support two parties, but whatever. Like I said, ordinarily I would've refused to pt ontop of another pt, but I was on my sub and just wanted it over with.
In the end, it was pretty entertaining, and it made the monotany of xping more enjoyable. I don't think she's a bad player, but she's definately a drama queen if she pulls this stuff just because a pt is camping next to hers.
