    Could we consider increasing the maximum level for KPQ to 34?

    This helps bridge that gap between PQs for levels 31-34, and provides additional KPQers which are already severely lacking in numbers.

    The potential downside of having "OP-ed" levels of partygoers taking the fun out of the PQ probably wouldn't be too severe.

    The gap between 31-35 is already perfectly covered by the Ariant questline. If you end up at 34, you can finish it off at Teddies/Genins depending on your job.

    I'm aware of the Ariant questline, the gap I was referring to was for gap between PQs specifically (i.e. letting PQ lovers continue doing PQs till they get to LPQ).

    That being said, the other main advantage of this is to increase the number of KPQers as it's currently already so hard to find a party.

    Early 2nd job still weak af. I see no issue with these players coexisting in a PQ with 1st jobbers. PPQ has lvl 100 players hanging out with lvl 50 players as an example.

    It means people could level with only PQ's from 10-100. For people who primarily PQ (like 10 people) the gap between 30 and 35 is a little awkward. It's prolly still slower than Ariant anyways.

    I'm always in favor of PQ buffs tho.

    Thank god for not having to spend more time LPQing with some washing sin that's pure int and just whips out a chair as soon as the stage starts.

    All jokes aside, I feel like this is a level bracket that doesn't have to be breached. It's a grind/questline that takes mere hours and there's no need to involve lower 30s in this bracket.

    Before the disagrees come in: that's perfectly fine. I just loathe PQing because the actual share of active participants is laughably low. There's way too many horror stories from people that PQ'd with someone multiclienting 4 washed chars without contributing whatsoever.

    This is extreme overstating of this 'horror story' scenario and spreading the wrong message. When is the last time you pqed and how many times have you seen this?

    I have done KPQ to MPQ on 4 separate characters over the past year for their entire level range and not once I have seen this. Yes it could be possible, but it must be EXTREMELY rare.
    Logically it makes no sense for 4 full int characters to pq anyway since they get faster exp elsewhere.

    This change would if anything increase PQ participants. I'd imagine not by a lot, but it doesn't do much harm, other than time to code and Nostalgia reasons.

    It's probably a change with so little impact it wouldn't be worth it to implement, but some people would like it a lot, myself included. blushmush
