High TI usually has some combination of monsters ranging from awful - garbage. Plus you have to sit around for half an hour just to organize a party. Which basically halves the effectiveness of even leveling there. Like does anyone actually do the TI when eremes is in it?
Scaraba has that disgusting questline to plow through only to get to a sparse af map full of reflect bots. Plus the XP is just bad.
Bio4 also has 3 obnoxious quests to get out of the way first, then you have to party with rando terribads to barely get a 30 minute BM TI. And it suffers from the same problem that High TI does where you have to waste tremendous amounts of time waiting for people to join a party on necessary classes. PLUS if you arent a RK, Genetic, AB, Sorc, Minst, Wandy, or Warlock you are basically useless or on Gwing $$$ duty. (Yes I am looking at you, Ranger who dies every Gwing)
Its so dumb that you can route through the game so linearly theres practically no opportunity to deviate from the standard path without taking just an insane amount of time. 100-125 Magma 2. 125-150 High TI / Scaraba. 150-175 NCT or Bio4. It also doesn't help that monsters that spawn on maps on this leveling path get bugged after 2 days and spawns are trash for the rest of the week.
I've done this crap like 30 times and I want to die. This game is literally just waiting week after week until there is a TI range that doesn't suck and level a character in that range. You can only play this game on Thursday, Friday, and maybe Saturday before the spawns on leveling maps are poof.
Sorry for not building a pillow fort around this post, but its really frustrating when I am actively trying to find reasons to play this game and I just can't find any. I want to log in for the event that is going on but when I do I just afk instantly.
