Alchemy requires skill, has nothing to do with Windurst, and the required ingredients aren't consistently available from NPCs and/or require farming monsters impossible to defeat at the mission's target level.

to the OP and anyone else interested, I would like to point out my post from before this one as a rep has answered it here is the answer http://forum.square-enix.com/ffxi/th...l=1#post314070
Try to have fun or it isn't worth playing
Sic, the OP is mentioning how SE quarter assed the level 99 increase, it feels to me, and im sure many other members that level 99 was an esthetic change rather than anything else. But since SE rather spend resources on other projects, no matter how asinine they are, we get this lame façade of FFXI that fan boys like you defend, it is tiring...
I have the final form of Aegis, it has 40 Def Augments Shield bash V and Magic Damage Taken -45%... The ultimate form!
So empowered, that Level 99 "Should" have came with new areas. Reminder you don't own your character, you're just renting it. If the company wants to change their vision, that is what their going to do. Can voice ideas and what not that doesn't mean said company has to do it. Of course I would like NEW AREAS, I would think most everyone that plays FFXI does as well, tbh why not it would give more life to the game. But all and all crying about sneak/invisible is not going to make new areas happen.it feels to me, and im sure many other members that level 99 was an esthetic change rather than anything else. But since SE rather spend resources on other projects, no matter how asinine they are, we get this lame façade of FFXI that fan boys like you defend, it is tiring...
a point I tried to make almost a year ago. Lack of comprehension pervaded there, too.
At any rate...
How is one expected to "help themselves" when "helping themselves" requires the intervention of a high-level player?and can't play an RPG effectivly to help themselves
You want a level ~20 to go skill alchemy. Getting the skill (and the ingredients for the meds in question) isn't realistic until level ~40 (not to mention the abominable timesink of skilling a craft in and of itself). Your only other suggestions boil down to "get assistance from someone else's high-level character" in one way or another.
Call that what you will, but "helping oneself" it is not. At best, it's "make yourself useful to someone else."
Yeah you can ask for high level help but that's my complaint. I don't want to have to ask someone who is max level for help. I would like to be able to handle the mission with people my level or by myself.
