    Miners and Botanists Rejoice

    Greetings,

    The development team is aware that the experience points awarded to botanists and miners is somewhat lower than what is awarded to fishers. As such, during the Hot Fix that will take place next week, we will be increasing the experience earned gained by these two classes.

    Taken from the forums today at the following link

    http://forum.square-enix.com/ffxiv/t...86#post1407986

    Which Basically means, the XP per mine / gather is going to be increased to be comparable to the Fishermen's Xp when they gather.

    Sounds good to me.

    when i was fishing i was getting between 600 - 1200xp depending on quailty and bait used.

    mining i was getting between 50 - 300xp depending on whether i was getting HQ items or not. Kinda gave up once i reached 21.

    Nice, i'l do miner now then. Botanist took forever and was midnumbingly tedious. (but well worth it $$$$$). Where-as fisher took about a day and a half to get to 50... its just plain wrong. (although fisher was very enjoyable to level)

    Glad to hear they are balancing it a bit.

    Everyone hates Botany. I found it super easy to level.

    I LOVED leveling botany. I'm going to do fishing afterwards I think.

    I'm thoroughly enjoying Mining right now. I had to take saturday off sadly, as I had asked Et for the FC action of exp bonus and missed it. But I am back on now and going hard on it!!

    Yeah, I've noticed a huge difference in XP gain during Levequests at level 20. Within the past 2 hours at the Quarry Mill area I went from Lvl 20-29. Getting like 12-13k per Leve. But now that I'm halfway to 50 I'm gonna just levle all the way up and not worry about stocking up on items yet. Ill do that after I'm Lvl 50.

    Yeah I'm lvl 50 botany now, all geared up with my HQ 'AF' gear and highest possible accessories. Gathering is a lot of fun at this level because anything under lvl 45ish is 100%, anything above is like 98-99%. I think I'll do mining next instead of fishing as I think I'll need it more for carpentry--but I need to stock up on leves as I'm out.

    Holy $#@!, theres AF gear for gathering classes? Is it given to you from the guild leader or do you have to get someone to make it? (that would suck)

    Well I don't think it's ACTUALLY artifact gear but it's class specific with high stats. You get to choose a piece at lvl 50 but if you want HQ it will have to be made. I bought mine on the marketplace while I was still level 15 as motivation.

    I'll look it up when the servers are back on and probably buy a piece or two for the same reason. But The Italian Job is on netflix. Great way to spend the two hour downtime.
