How is loot distributed?
What about boss loot? Is it last hit? (episode 2, Kirito did last hit I think and got the cloak)
What about exp when raiding like a boss?

What is the advantage of being in a party?
lets say 5 people in a party, only 1 person can attack at once and they would need to switch for the next person to attack. Wouldn't 5 people soloing dps the monster faster? Only con I see is if your low on hp, you can switch out so that another member can take damage.

As far as I know loot is distributed how one would expect, but apparently floor bosses have a special loot that is given to the person that gets the last hit too.

More people is obviously safer, even if you're not all able to attack at the same time.

Well, not really. They look way skinnier and more malnourished. The body doesn't grow much under these conditions (being in a coma with an IV).

Several people can attack at once if some of them have long reached weapons (spears and staffs). And the switching itself is advantageous as the change in tactics disorients the mob.

(1) As far as I know, it set how EXP and Loot is distributed in parties. Solo players get all the loot, though.
(2) Boss Loot is distributed equally among all parties inside, except for the LA Bonus (or Last Attack Bonus)
(3) See (2)
(4) You get all the EXP like a boss

(5) Ability to switch after executing the attack, in which the one you switch can attack the mob again, eliminating cooldown almost completely. This also confuses the AI as its target changes.

(6) No, as several Skills can attack multiple players in front. And there's that cooldown in skills too (it makes you a bit "paralyzed" unless you Switch)

That should answer everything...

In Asuna's guild, whoever gets loot keeps it, saves trouble. Solo players naturally get all the loot.

The amount of EXP you get depends on your damage done, unless it is different for bosses.

Well, that's true, but the essential concept is more or less the same. Though I have to wonder whether Kawahara was inspired to do this after watching IDOLATOR...

Certainly, Kayaba's voice in the first episode is essentially Togusa mixed with random Stand Alone Complex cyber-villain...

I meant be a bit more specific from which part in the series the spoiler is.

Why? The caption of the spoiler explains what the spoiler is about, no more no less. In fact, taken by itself, it does not really contain ANY LN related spoilers of any kind, just a tech issue that's related to SAO LNs...

But in case you (or another someone) didn't catch it, it's vaguely related to Vol. 9 - Vol 10. [Alicization Arc].

I'm just nitpicking, but I haven't read vol 9 & 10 yet. So I assumed it had something to do with
Spoiler for SAO arc:

It's more or less a warning for when you use spoiler tags for bigger spoilers.

Actually, this is extremely important. You are wrong.

From this point forward, failure to either use a spoiler tag for comparisons, or to give it a proper label as defined above will result in the automatic ban.
Clearly, I've been slacking off on the ban department, as demonstrated by this thread (which I had been trying to avoid precisely to avoid being spoiled). But you and everyone else must label your spoiler tags properly. It is not just "what it is about".

It seems you tag your spoilers correctly, but StellarCell spoiler tag which I quoted could be better.
