Final Fantasy XIV "Infinite XP" Glitch Discovered

Originally posted on Sankaku Complex:

"Yet another problem mars the release of Final Fantasy XIV – players have discovered a flaw which grants near infinite XP, allowing them to reach the level cap whilst ignoring the much vaunted fatigue system entirely.

The technique reportedly involves the combined use of buffing and an amulet in a large party, creating a cascade of extra XP.

Whether this is actually a bug or a balance issue is open to interpretation – players engaging in the practice naturally maintain it is fair play, although it is hard to see Square Enix allowing this to continue.

Whatever the technique used, that players have already reached the level cap (or almost – “Figaro” stands at 29 of 30) for certain skills is undeniable – Square Enix’s character records demonstrate as much."

Has anyone actually done this? I doubt anyone will actually admit to trying or doing it...

Its already fixed, and the ones that used it either got banned or got re-ranked to the last legitimate rank

They've got a vendetta against Square ENix; they were the ones who made up that "8 hours a week" myth.
