My skill points are in white not yellow, so no not on the surplus or anything like that.

sounds like youre still at least nearing surplus. might be a good idea to work on a new class. Might I suggest Thaumaturge? Sacrifice and poison are quite useful for any class.

Were they all that bad? I know sometimes I've fought red mobs and got zero skill exp, then 500 on another. I would find an easier green or higher mob than the goats or slaughter lots of much easier mobs...

Just killed a green dodo with ease, got 430 exp points and 290skill points, there is something wrong with the goats for sure.

I have sacr and poison, they are completely useless for a Gla, they scale off magical stats so the poison does about 20 points of damage, and sacrifice heals for about 100HP and takes 4 seconds to cast, those 4 seconds I could be blocking and of done about 300 damage to the enemy.

Okay killed a 3rd and got some good Exp and points, I am going to just consider this a bug.

I'm guessing you need to repair your weapon...

Skill point are obtain in a random manner from your hit(amount of damage done on monster) as well as "taking hit on shield", color of the monster is determine by class rank, and exp is determine by physical level. When you physical is too high, and fighting monster that are too low, it is possible you can still obtain skill point while not getting any exp.

To get better skill/exp at your current level, i would suggest getting small parties to go for harder monster, this is because SE needs to make sure not all player solo all the way to their level cap, if not the party system will fail.

There is a system that slows gains to prevent power levelers from exploiting the game. Id switch classes or give it a break for a bit, sounds like you were at the grind for awhile.
