O hay time to whine.
I was about to do some Toad Island quests when two people asked me if I wanted to grind with them in Spooky or some other place. They were levels 75 and 77 and I was 75. Usually I ignore these requests since I don't trust random people because of reasons you'll find out if you keep reading, but decided to say yes since I had lots of free time and wanted to use my last Prime potion so I didn't have to look at it anymore (lol). Even asked them if they were staying long so I could use the pot, got yes as a response.
So it starts out fine, we try out Lizard Men. I train with them a few minutes without using the pot to make sure they're actually going to stay since I'm paranoid. We kill monsters quickly and even have time to chat (the chats were amusing) and my mind thought, "Hey, these people are cool. Maybe we'll grind for an hour or so and add each other to our buddy lists and become grinding partners. ^_^" Much to my dismay... I was wrong. So I finally use the Prime and the millisecond I use it, they decide to go further into Toad Island to see if there's anything beyond Lizard Men. Obviously, there's nothing there (I told them so). We waste a few minutes. Sure, that's fine, only a few minutes after all.
Right after they decided the exp gained from Lizard Men was bad so we moved to Gagas in Spooky 60. Fought for a while and I even gained a level! A whole 50% in 30 minutes of my Prime! <_<; One of them bugged me about me "doing zero damage" since I was 75 and still using a +1 Hyunmu Dagger, for lv. 55. Heck, I don't really mind if it's 20 levels lower than me, since I still do 1.8k - 2.2k crits if you haven't noticed.
Then one of the guys has to leave to make dinner. That's fine, still got another person. I ask her if she can stay a bit more since I had 25 more minutes on my Prime and she says yes. We fight for like two minutes, then she says, "gotta go sorry. :(" and signs off immediately, breaking the party and kicking me from Spooky.
So I had to grind the remainder of my Prime in Freeway, not to mention my game got stuck at the loading screen right before that, adding onto my frustration. I'm super glad the time for exp pots doesn't tick down when you're signed off. I have zero clue how I managed to gain 200% exp during that fiasco, though I suppose that's a good thing since it's two levels.
End my long and annoying tale.
