well my CON is almost 10 and my THM is 10, however, i find the best way to get class points is to fight orange mobs, however 4 fights and im out of mp and my MP abilities and the crystal is a thousand miles away.

i know there are alot of people alot higher than me by now, so i was wondering what kind of MP regen people have been seeing with the other abilities mixed and matched with other classes so we know how worth the MP regen can possibly be at release.

you need to find an equilibrium. you need to spend half of your mp every 10 minutes and no more. Use your no cost abilities more. you may get bigger numbers grinding oranges, but if you can only kill 4 and have to run back, that's a lot of time wasted.

FWIW, I was just messing around with the Mind stat. I put in 1 point at a time at PL15 Thaum 12, and for each point I put in (started at 17) I got 8 MP. Actually going from 22-23 Mind it bumped me up 9 MP so putting in 8 points from 17 to 25 bumped me up 65 MP.

Better still, the thread author needs to find the Conjurer & Thaumaturge forums. There are some threads there that deal on MP strategy.

I can make some pretty sweet EXP solo as 19conj fighting yellow/orange/red thickshells in the forest streams. With the occasional forced fights with suckerpunching anglers & bee swarms. With mobs hitting harder I tend to go the nuke as much as possible and kill quickly route now. With spiritbind @18(halves MP cost for a bit) and tranquility giving me 350MP every 10 minutes I can kinda sustain good experience, but it still requires some downtime. Though the experience is really good so I can deal with that. I could mix some marmot fights in and strictly go spirit dart/radiance with cures as needed and keep it going that way...

I'm thinking if I had food/drink that gave a refresh tick I'd be good to go here, but I've been too lazy to try that out so far. Might end up being similar to XI where having good refresh food may make you that much of a better mage in the earlier levels. And very popular if you share food with the other mages...

Of course finding a spot like this right next to an aetheryte would be even better...

Yeah, and like Osarion mentioned, MND increases MP so that's something else to look into, I have a lot of points into VIT, probably more than I need. Could reset my stats and dump more into MND and probably be better off, but again that's on my laziness and what I have now is working so I don't wanna tinker with it...
