Alliance merit party experimentFollow

word has it that it is possible to exceed what you would normally make in a standard 6 man with a 2 or 3 party alliance. at least the math comes out showing that if all 3 party were doing their fair share we would either break even or potentially come out ahead.

I have been wondering about this speculation for quite some time and I am willing to actually give it a go. I have a parser and everything set up to count exact xp per hour.

My thinking is that the best alliance merit camp would be center stage in the skoffin pop area in mamool ja stage point first clearing skoffin then moving out to mamools and puks on either side of the camp.

>.> <.<

wondering what others have to say about this idea.

First let me say LOL! Now I have to wonder if there are enough mobs there to pull off enough XP for everyone? And can you imagine how hard it is to coordinate that many people for an event? Does your math take into account AFK's for bathroom breaks? What would happen if someone went AFK and broke a chain? Do you kick them from the alliance and replace them, and if so, can I have their spot? I have a Galkan Whm I can melee with <.< I can come either whm/war or whm/nin...

lol the only way whm can front line is a relic k club whm/nin ;P

and no the math only accounted for "If everyone was doing their jobs"

And the camp would be IN the skoffin pop area with loads of mobs on either side.

Anyway I don't know if it true or not about how it would work out or not. You would be much less likely to break chains though.

Almost asked you on Sunday - we were looking for a 6th until a friend showed up. I'll look for you next time that happens.

I don't go as much as I used to, but still do Nyzul from time to time. :)

Oh wow, I just saw this now. I have family in town atm, have hardly been on at all this week. Missed 2x Bahamut v2 fights, and 2x Limbus because of it.

I doubt I'll be online on Saturday night. Sorry Vamp. Happy to help another time though. ^^

I've tried this before for the lulz.

Thing is, max xp you can get for the same mob decreases (obvious). However its pretty much impossible to lose an xp chain, and in the same time you'd be getting say, 200 xp, you will get about 180. It looks cool, but it isn't practical.

Its not a crazy idea, but everyone in both of our parties wtflulz'd when I allied with my ls member to try this.

rescheduled to the 12th but since I wasn't around last weekend I have no idea if it happened or not - the group I had hoped to be up to 4-2 by then wasn't past 3-5 anyway so I doubt it went unless others helped.

I'll have to wait and hear from Vamp and everyone else, but if it didn't go we'll be rescheduling when I get confirmation from everyone who needs on dates/available times (I think we had 3 who were hoping to pop, last time I checked).
