Baman said: Man, I got this a week after release but have only played a bit now and then, so I still haven't finished it. And then I decided to master all the jobs I had at the moment, so I've been doing the insane phlogiston grind outside Eternia. Went from lv.50 to 90 and still have a couple jobs left, haha.
I really love how grinding is really just a option and not a necessity (Although if you play on hard it kind of is). And how you can even turn off encounters altogether.
Permacrystal and Fairy Wind abuse in Vampire Castle is amazing.
