Request: Ungimping of Beastman Pet XP

Post by pan » Mon Apr 15, 2019 12:32 pm

I'm leveling BLM currently as a ton of BLM did during this era on Beastman Pets.

As a reference: https://ffxiclopedia.fandom.com/wiki/Bl ... Solo_Guide

And I'd like to request to ungimp the XP gain on these pets, currently they don't award the amount of XP they should.

I'm not sure why the XP was gimped in the first place, only heard rumors and I see the potential abuse since everyone can dbox, but maybe there's a way to exclude solo-unPLed-BLMs from this rule.

I was soloing pets a month or so ago and they gave the correct exp amounts. Was this changed recently?

I killed some IT pets yesterday in a group and we got 50-60 exp.

this was implemented back on Kupo Server afaik, but maybe you killed pets that were so much higher that it didn't take effect.

I've killed IT pets on Eden for proper XP as well, maybe something broke it? What level were you and what level pets were you killing?

Pet XP was nerfed on Kupo in groups but solo it is fine. They didnt want people to only level off of pets in a group.

I usually do beastmen pets from 34-37 on most of my subjobs in Zi'tah and they give full exp. Was this maybe just a specific mob you were fighting? I did this less than a week ago on SAM and it was working properly though.

It scales down the more members you have in a group otherwise everyone would be leveling off pets in a group.

Collected some numbers and when consulting the experience points tables from this site:
https://ffxiclopedia.fandom.com/wiki/Ex ... did=356787

Then the pets don't give intended XP.

BLM56-58(solo) vs. Goblin's Bat 61-64 (levels are accurate, checked with Battlemod addon)
https://ffxiclopedia.fandom.com/wiki/Goblin%27s_Bat in Newton Moval.

As Lv51-60 max xp/kill is supposed to be 250.

At 56 xp gained 210 (61), 215(62+). if above table is correct they should give capped xp (250)
at 57: 180(61), 210(62), 215(63+), 61 should give 240, rest 250.
at 58: 150(61) ... 61 should give 200, 62: 240, rest 250

at 58: 150(61) ... 61 should give 200, 62: 240, rest 250
Its interesting to note that it seems....

At 56, duoing a mob that is 61 should yield 280 * 1.5 / 2 which would be 210
57 .... 240 * 1.5 / 2 = 180
58 ... 200 * 1.5 / 2 = 150

So it looks like the 'fix' for pet exp nerf might be that it just adds 1 to your party amount when doing the math for the exp(likely).

Or you don't have signet and that is causing you to get less xp(unlikely).
