    Nope.


    If you enter as CNJ 25, then do floors 1-30, when you come back out you'll be CNJ 27-28ish (maybe higher, I do tomestones not XP so not sure). Your level inside is independent of your level outside, but you still gain shittons of XP outside for every 10 floors you clear inside.


    Basically you get a fuckload of XP in the real game for every 10 floors you clear in PotD. Hence why it's such a great tool for leveling.


    Basically I would say work on your main quests for XP, and when you get stuck or bored do PotD instead. Duty roulettes still have their place mind you; you get both XP and tomestones for roulettes so it's up to you if those are worth it as well. I would say at the very least do trials roulette every day because the amount of time vs the amount of tomestones and XP you get is nuts.


    Alternatively, bum rush PotD and level up like mad and then do quests later, but keep in mind MSQ gives a fuckload of XP as well so you don't want to waste that.

    2 questions for POTD'

    1) I just did 1-10 and 10-20 and my outside job got 0 exp
    2) I did floor 1-20 as a match party and now it forces me as a match put every time?

    1) That is impossible unless your job is capped. Are you sure? Is that the job you entered on? You've gotta be missing something here.
    2) Yes. If you start as a matched party, you have to enter as a matched party every time on that save. You can reset the save; you lose your floor progress but keep aetherpool progress and can start over with a fixed party (or solo).

    Will have to check to be sure, but i know that before entering Floor 1, I was lv 27 CNJ, and was still 27 CNJ after floor 20.

    So maybe i did get EXP but not enough to gain a LV

    XP scales based off what level you are and what floor you accomplish. My 40 MCH is going to get more xp than your 27 CNJ even if we do the same floors.

    After completing the duty you'll get a chat message saying you gained x experience.

    So how fun is the new alexander wing? Thinking with that whole "96 hour free login period" I may come back for a bit.

    It's fairly easy to get through, a bit more enjoyable than Midas but not as satisfying to clear.

    I see. Maybe I'll give it a go since there's no way in hell I want to subscribe for a month just to finish up the main/Alex story.

    Normal or Savage?

    Normal is piss easy as always, Savage is much easier than the last two wings. Mechanics aren't as punishing and the dps checks are pretty lax.

    I've never had much of an interest in Savage since I'm not really a fan of the "Static only" mindset.

    You can clear this entire tier without a static. 12 is rough, but even on Leviathan a bunch of people did it solely through PF. 9-11 are easy at this point.

    Possibly returning - Questions

    Some POTD questions

    1) exemple I'm conjurer 32, will i get hit same exp from floor 1-10 then 51-60? ( if I'm conjurer 32 on both)

    2) what happens when you buy a weapon with your "levels" can you buy them all with just lv 30?

    3) except buying a weapon what does the weapon and armour level do in potd more damage and défense? And nothing more?

    You can do it via PF and RF - but i'd personally join one of the raiding discords and pug for different groups that need fill-in's.

    1) I thought I read that higher floors = more XP, but I can't confirm for certain because I've only done tomestones in potd so far.
    2) you need +30 on both weapon and armor, then you can buy a weapon to use outside of the dungeon. your weapon and armor in PotD will then be reduced by 30 points each. the weapon won't be usable until level 60 but it is fantastic - your basic level 60 weapon is i150, this is i235. also once you buy the i235 weapon, you can save up for an i255 weapon that costs 60 points each from your armor/weapon and it's among the top tier weapons (depending on class). BRD's kinna weapon, for example, is in the top 3 or so weapons if that gives you an idea of how strong they are.
    3) they give you damage/defense (or healing power), that's it. technically there is one other thing: every 10 floors has a minimum aetherpool rating required to enter. however, that rating is so low that I have never once run into it so I don't think it really matters. you will almost certainly be above that rating by the time you get to each set of floors.


    PotD question of my own: When does my weapon turn red? I know I get Kinna at 60/60 but I mean, when does it turn red in PotD?

    It turns red as soon as you get +60 weapon.

    The higher level ones award exp and you get beastman currencies you can buy items for the new relic with as well as some mounts, minions, housing items and dyes locked behind each tribe. Also some find the stories enjoyable.

    If none of that entices you go ahead and skip 'em. You aren't going to miss out on anything earth shattering and you can always do them later.

    Easy exp, and you get free IV battle materia when you get high reputation. I don't see why not do them now.

    potd xp scales with your level. Each 10 floors get you roughly 20% of your current level up exp.
