That seems like one huge disparity. At the price I proposed, a level 95 weapon would be 150,000 sparks. Maybe that's a little low, but maybe we can find a middle ground between 150,000 and 25.5 million.
    Really depends on how serious you are. I haven't really timed it... maybe I will tonight but I get an okish about just murdering everything in sight on monstsority in buburimu. I'd guess probably only a little over 5k an hour. But it's doing something I'd already be doing and takes little enough attention that I can watch shows or play another character etc and is solo. Mostly though you just keep accumulating them just playing and doing stuff. Once they let abyssea mobs count for the things that specify xp mobs and it should go even crazy faster. And mostly this is just another source of getting your rem stuff nto necessarily the only source. Regardless not seriously farming and still doing dynamis and limbus each day and making my af+1 etc and limited play time I've gotten enough already to a full set of 109 and +1 a couple of peices. And most of that has been solo. Most the non solo stuff was the stupid level sync thing and whatever I get in the process of doing the time limit ones for rem 119 upgrades

    This is why someone made the post a while back about SE not needing to reinvent the wheel. SE does this every single time, we see a new item which we need stacks of to make proper use of them, but, we only have the power to buy them 1 by 1. Forbidden Keys, the Glasses in Adoulin, Airlixirs, and like you said, Seals from the Logins, they are all the same, SE released them only able to be purchased 1 by 1, but in the following update, or shortly there after, made them buyable in multiples.

    I don't remember if anyone mentioned this, but Spoils (Seals) seems to be glitched. Kindred Seals don't count toward completion.

    I think we have noticed in our shell that Kindred Crests count instead of the seals. Might be a typo in the goal. I wonder if it is so all level ranges have the chance to complete the quest. Offhand, I'm trying to think of a place somebody with all jobs at 99 could farm BS/KS where the mobs still give xp. Cape Terrigan maybe, but I'm not sure if it would start giving crests instead of seals.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one here. Unfortunitly, I see a huge trend in oversight on the developer's part. First abyssea forbidden keys, then souls spectacles, now the skill up tomes. For whatever reason great things are added to the game, and EVERY time the players have to point out to the developer that the item should be made available to purchase in bulk.

    On a side note what was the point of obseleting a ton of pre adoulin gear, only to come out with this expansion's perle gear (eminence, and the byalld gear). It doesn't seem to have changed anything. Players still need certain peices of older geaar to stay relievant, yet all the 20,000 level 85 empyreans (2012 census) and all the magian weapons were trashed. That was alot of people wore were affected by adoulin's ilevel system. So, I thought there was a purpose of increasing the level cap to ilevels (but if you giving away 117 weapons and such with eminence then the whole concept of we made ilevel because there had to be progress is BS), but it really just seems it was a reason to reset everyone so they could grind everything over again. I'm tired of grinding to infinity and beyond.

    Can the new next big thing be something players can enjoy with all their new gear, instead of doing something to grind more gear can you develope something that players can DO with all this new stuff rather than repeat current gear events with the newest gear?

    P.S. I like the eminence system, great for a return, but after putting my never to be ilevel almace and kannigi on my manequin, I'm not as interested as investing solo time into more BS. I can't will myself to wear the "new pearle", and I was speaking to an older player and we were reminded of how rival linkshells would team up just to try and beat AV (before the walling and k-club methods). Is there something that can be added, the final zone having some time spawn hnms or a new AV? I don't see anything worthy in adoulin.

    If you are looking for a real piece of challenging content, I believe Divine Might II is where you will find it more so than anything, each Angel makes Delve NMs look weak by compare, admittedly, they have weaknesses like Shadows that old NMs from their day and age always suffered, but, they are easily the hardest this in this game right now on Very Hard.

    You seem to think people might actually WANT hard fights. Whenever I see complaints, it reads to me as "I want a fight that is hard for everybody except for me and my friends so we can be better than the rest".

    Well that to me is one of the great things about the whole difficulty idea they implemented. If you want things to be easy enough to do alone, but take more time, or easy enough to do without all of the latter climbing up to that point, you can. At the same time, if people want to do it fast and hard, finishing quickly, they can. There are unique titles for winning on Very Hard too, so you can sport around your trophy to some extent as proof you did something mildly impressive, but at the same time, no one is excluded. The best part about it is that people who complain for the sake of complaining, have no reason to complain, and make themselves look stupid, which I think is what your talking about, the people who complain just to complain, they don't want challenge, they just want something they have, others can't, even then, we have titles though, minor, but something.
