This update accoring to Sqaure will almost double xp gains,and now offer skillups for Decent challenge mobs as compared to Even Match or harder mobs.
The game at this stage is old,so it is a good change to encourage new players,so they don't feel overwhelmed and it also further allows more soloing as D/C mobs are for the most ,the norm for soloers.This will also allow duo/trio parties to have more success.
it won't destroy grouping,because grouping now wil lencourage even faster gains,it will however help those that can't find a group or don't want one.
They are also going to remove some more level restrictions of missions that had level caps.
Another huge advert on their site shows that if buying the package deal from D2D,you also get the visions of Abyssea,so really the game is alot more accesible to ALL types of players now.If yo uare a versatile player,you owe it to yourself,to give the game a try,it's not that expensive.
I should tell people that there is one huge blemish that still angers people,you MUST have a verified Credit card to subscribe,the only way around it is to contact by phone Playonline.
Personally i like the changes for one very good reason.It will allow newish players to have fun experiencing more classes,without feeling that huge grind of leveling just one.
