    A magic resistant mob covers all those bases. Everyone TPs so ridiculously fast with haste (spell) and march/geo-haste that the type of melee you bring really doesn't matter.

    People don't particularly care whether to nukers are GEO, SCH, RDM, or BLM so long as one sc results in the mob dying.

    Give me a mob designed for SC damage, and I'll bring a monk, drg, samurai, I don't care. I already do, just for only one spot in the party.

    Another reason Apex Colibri would be perfect: Feather Tickle stops putting an acc check on the tank, and lets them be more concerned about tanking (which is hard on newbies, being tankable enough, and meeting acc checks).

Many of the NMs today are significantly more difficult to beat than Apex crabs. But I don't see them giving us one JP per kill.
    Oh it exists. Hard to hit without some kind of campaign and ring I think. Mot really sure if it's actual cap or display though at least as far as rings were concerned different characters got different amounts despite the same display. ie some wore some didn't

    I think he means that bosses never rewarded experience in proportion to their difficulty in comparison to the extermination of the crabs.

    SR gives 10k capacity points, I think? A single crab during campaign does that much. SR takes at least 10 minutes. A crab takes at most a minute.

    Now granted, SR offers the potential of great loot, but let's be honest: the box has junk most of the time.

    It's easy to explain why some rings wore faster when some didn't, if everyone was getting 65,535: Some people were getting a larger bonus from their rings to reach that cap than others.

    Should just change that last option to "1 Job Point." It was cute the first time a linkshell member said Balamor had the amazing magickal powers of converting 5000 Bayld to 1000 Bayld, but that joke runs dry just after one or two uses.

    Not a bad thought, but 5 job points at least. It's going to take most good groups at least 10 minutes, as much as 20. 5 job points is more than reasonable.

    Mob isn't much stronger than most apex though a tad more annoying..

    As far as what happened certainly possible it used up the ring then applied the cap literally making part of the ring do nothing. Or maybe it didn't been awhile since I tried it and honestly didn't expect that much. Also been awhile since they've done a cp bonus that wasn't tied to chains

    In a game with vastly more DPS jobs and a few mages it's hilarious how they have set the current capacity point party system.

    Most people can't even get into these parties.
