    I was frequently called on to make sac pulls as THF there. Remember "sac pulls"? lol
    The risk of de-leveling was REAL back then. @[email protected]

    I was the main pull/sac THF. maxed R.acc set and capped xbow skill, Acid Bolts, TH3, evasion set. I was awesome at it. I even got to keep any currency I mugged, which was nice when they were 35k/each. Fun times. It was a lot of pressure because poor timing on my part could wipe the entire run but luckily it didn't happen often.

    We used to have organized XP/Merit parties for our Sac pullers, to keep them capped between events. lol

    The good old days.

    I remember there used to be drama in some dynamis linkshells with greedy leaders demanding the THFs hand over their personal stolen currency. Definitely don't miss those days
    (those leaders were also often the same ones that would steal the bank and hop servers, lol)

    Well, I was BRD main so exp/merits were never an issue for me. That didn't prevent deleveling when you went from lv75 capped exp down to 74 tho. >_>

    We didn't have the fancy exp buffers or stupidly reduced exp loss on Raise, or Arise, or etc. back in my day. Spoiled kids nowadays. /harumph
    XD

    You most certainly had exp buffers back in the day; that hasn't changed any.

    Compare TNL for 75 vs 99. <,<;; Factor in the increased exp loss on death back then and what we had was a LOT smaller than what we have now. I like now better. <3

    If a shell leader told you to give them the cucu you were able to steal, your first and only response should've been "fuck you"

    or give them shall shells. TNL @ 75 cap with 2400 xp loss on death/raisens was still a heavy hit. Home pointing was 10% (4500ish I think?) sac pulling usually meant you needed a day or so to recap xp loss from purposeful deaths during dyna back then. Those were the only deaths that ever felt worth it back then, despite knowing it was an hour of exp needed to get that back.

    Yeah, and not to mention getting EXP as a THF at 75 was fucking hell, unless you were privlidged in your LS and got into good Bard parties. After TOAU, THF were not terrible for Colibri/Imp parties, but pre-TOAU, people typically meritted off of Weapons in Sky or in Lufaise Meadows. THF weren't as desired as WAR, NIN, MNKs were and were usually paired up with DRK and DRG in 2nd rate merit parties in Lufaise Meadows off of IT+ Rams/Rocs . If you were a smart THF, you capped xbow though and had an r.acc set and pumped those mobs with Acid Bolts for quicker kills, but alas most THF didn't (and still don't, despite how good of a debuff -12.5% def is)

    Remember when all the colibri/mamool merit camps were packed full and someone went "Guess we'll go to the troll camp" and you could hear everyone groan simultaneously?

    I wish that Sanction didn't grant an EXP bonus so that other camps outside of TOAU could still be worthwhile. Bibiki Bay was still decent, as was Sky and KRT. Basically allow you to choose your camp based off party composition.

    Anyway, the camp I hated the most was Kuftal Tunnel bottom floor. Tigers, Wyverns, and Cocktrices....

    I loved my free warp with meriting on BRD at colibri. You sing the charm song and it reflects it back and people kill you and you don't lose XP. Strange to think it was so long ago lol.

    You used to lose exp if you died while charmed, they changed that in an update though, probably around the early ToAU era
