    Job points, Merit points.

    Hello,

    We earn job points too slowly compared to merit points,
    It's easy to cap merit points & almost impossible to cap job points.
    I suggest to offer us the possibility to buy job points with our merit points.
    Maybe 5-10 merit points to buy 1 job point, I would aim for 9 merits to get 1 job points so that people can go help starting players level up to 99 & earn themselves 5 job points each times they cap their 45 merit points.
    Thank you.

    I like the idea of using merit points to purchase job points. +1 from me

    Also you get a crap load of merits while actively farming capacity points. It'd be nice if they stopped going nowhere. I think a 30:1 ratio even would be fair because merit points are so easy. 30,000 capacity points or 300,000 limit points to get 1 job point.

    That would prolly increase the flow of Abyssean Parties.

    As the concepts for merit points and capacity points are different, the development team does not have any plans to address this request; however, they are currently planning to add avenues for earning more capacity points.

    Well I hope whatever it is that they decide to do about my SMN's job points is well worth it. They're nearly non-existent compared to other jobs, SAM, BRD, and WHM will always have access to capacity point parties no matter what. I tried out Walk of Echoes and its payout isn't as great as entering relevant content like Incursion, Delve, Skirmish where the capacity points and job points just keep rolling on and on.

    My LS brings SMN to incursion and delve. find a better group to roll with.

    Need to do something as its quite a feat to have 10/10 in a single category on a job never mind 10/10 on all cats in a single job. Im not sure what the original intent was for job points but if it was designed as further growth for specialists on a particular job that not everyone was supposed to have then the categories need beefing up to provide clear distinction between someone with and without. Otherwise we need faster options but not to the point everyone has it 10/10 all jobs. Ideally want to it be high level near top gear but lowman.

    the idea isnt bad, some jobs dont invite often to events where you can earn Job points or they are terrible to kill mobs solo, example smn or bst, the speed how other jobs earn job points compareted to those 2 is unbalanced, adding something to balance this would be cool, also since SE doesnt support PS2 on NA and EU, some our friends cant join to soa stuff (Thanks SE ) and we'd like see how you guys can fix this to let those guys get job points for thier jobs

    can't believe people still play on PS2. but ok, since you are and you aren't going to events in SoA, those JP are pretty much not going to be used as all pre-SoA content is ridiculously easy. maybe you want them for completion sake. you can still go kill things in other zones (like worms and pygmatoise in gustav tunnel) to get your job points. you can even get job points in dyna. while these options don't give nearly as many capacity points as incursion, the mobs are a lot lower level. this is only logical. the option is still there, you can still get your job points, there is no reason for anyone to complain. especially all you people who like to solo/low man instead of join a group in incursion.

    all i hear from this entire thread is "waaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh". stop it already. JP are soloable. use your trusts. you can play the game without JP, they are just nice to have. funny how people think just cuz something exists that they are entitled to it. and that it should just be handed to you. what's the point of a game if everything is just given to you. a non-challenging game is not a game at all. part of what makes things worthwhile is the journey or as some call it "the grind". Yes some jobs have it easier getting JP because they are more likely to go to certain events. Well guess what, life isn't fair. suck it up. Certain jobs can solo NMs that the other 20 jobs classes can't. A certain job can do two to three times the damage of all others. woop de doo. everyone is afforded the opportunity to get JP.... just like in life everyone is afforded an opportunity to live it, some just do it faster/better than others. stop complaining, get on with it. you're wasting valuable JP farming time.
