I have come to see why party is such a fun part of this game. I can and have played most jobs in party, yet soloed all to lv.15 before ever partying any job. THe game is more fun the higher your job is, but you can't solo to those hights alone, not even with war/whm, war/dnc, Sam/dnc, or many others, maybe bst but I don't know enough of the game or understand the job, at lv18 my mobs keep killing me before it kills the mob I sicked it on. Because it will take forever to level jobs past 20 solo, only job I did party with below 18 was blm. With Level Sync I'm now playing jobs below levels I would not have partied with before it.
 
There's so much to this game, that at times (because I don't have real life friends, let alone ones that play this) I'm considering giving up getting a lv75, let alone try getting my LS "Ben'd Party Elite" an LS for party training and helping each other with BCNM's, quests & missions. Heck I was even hoping to make farming parties, with non-standard job combos and doing things just for the fun of it. But far to many ppl take this game to seriously, and I've seen that even mentors don't help you, unless there's something in it for them.
 
I'm not going to stop helping for no reason, but I ain't going out of my way to help anyone, for those that I have helped, only a few very few have actaully returned the favor.

I have been playing this game since june of 07. I find the updates and changes to the game, have me unable to solo as well as I use too.
