Grinding is pretty much eliminated in the early levels. I started a new character to see how leveling is and I very rarely see grinding party bulletins anymore. It's all done by quests well into to the 100s, I think.
Oooh, I see. I'm always tempted to go back to eTO but then realize it'll take forever to get any decent gear... and there's not much for me to do there. I tried playing jTO which is about the same as revo eTO too, but I quested until like level 110+. There's no more grinding in that game until probably much later. I tried forming parties and levels 90 or so didn't know how it worked.
Minecraft and eTO mostly. Some tactical RPGs on the PSP. I work at Zellers now as a material handler/manual labourer. I moved out to the country in January so I ride my bike 20km into town for work. Needless to say, I have an amazingly sexy ass now.
Which random games? I don't go back to school until Sept 8th, so I'm still relaxing a bit/reviewing before classes. What kind of job do you have now? I remember hearing you had a job and you had a lot of difficulties getting there-- and getting sunburnt or something. ./creeper
