■ If a player kills a monster in one hit and immediately switches jobs while in the open world, the job that they switched to gains the EXP.
Although this issue was previously recognised, this method of earning EXP by defeating open-world monsters was not widely used and did not have a significant effect. Because addressing it would have required changes to the core structure of the EXP-gaining system, we left the issue at the resolution period determining stage.
Because the blue mage is designed to receive more EXP than other jobs, this issue became much more noticeable recently and has concerned many players. This issue should have been addressed before the implementation of blue mage, and we apologise for the inconvenience.
We are making the investigation of this issue a high priority, but as explained above, it involves changing the core structure of the EXP gaining method, making it difficult to address with a mere Hotfix. Currently, we are aiming to address this issue in Patch 5.0.
We would normally classify such a method for levelling as an exploit, but since we were not able to address this promptly despite it being a known issue, we will not issue any penalties for players who level this way. However, since this was not the Blue Mage’s intended design, we do not recommend engaging in this behaviour, and encourage players to level in the intended fashion.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, and we thank you for your patience and understanding.
