DoM vs DoW Skill UpFollow

Recently I have been asking around alot between DoM and DoW players regarding skill up. As a DoM player i went out as a rank 25 THA doing LQ20s in a party only to find after nearly 2 hours i had only received around 5,000 points.

Then i bumped into someone i partied with before 2 days previous (a 23 or 24 Lancer) however they where now Rank 28.

After asking them what they have been doing they responded with LQ20s in a party and after more questions they appeared to be getting 300ish skill a kill.

Iv spoken to other melee who all say thats about right there or there abouts where as all the DoM seem to be reporting similar to me.

Now i know its very VERY VERY random but really? Should we be able to go 2 leves without one single point of skill up?

Anyone else think there is an issue between the skill gained between these?

Also these where all Rank 20s 3-4 star (on everyone who reported) tried in all 3 zones. The mages would try everything from "wanding" to full on AoE, healing, buffing etc.

Yeah I noticed I get crummy skill ups a lot of the time. But them sometimes miraculously I get good skill ups...

example: I was duoing Does with a THM and I was getting 100-150 sp each. Then we got a GLA to join us and - (this is weird) I started getting 200-250 SP each. And the GLA started complaining that we should be doing tougher mobs - so I have a feeling his SP was suck.

Messed up.

I was speaking to someone today who i kid you not, while i was playing leveled to rank 26 and then rank 27. All the time they leveled i to was doing leves the same as them and got 16000/32000 (roughly, not on at the moment) now they ranked up twice the time it took me to get to half way through rank 25.

I know its ment to be random but this really seems lazy on SEs part in the way that there is absolute zero regulation.

The reality is you can play for 6 hours and not rank up while someone can rank up in 2 hours or so.

Now this feels like a kick to the nuts when your there, specially as a mage class (as you get less chance to skill up, with less attacks, and the 10 second cast on a cure (lag related) But the main issue is, me and two friends want to play together, we roughly play the same amount and try and level together all we can (we craft if others are not on or do dif classes) but now we have

28 - Lancer
25 - Tha
19 - Con

That is a 9 rank difference, thats insane!

Is anyone else experiencing such thing?

The reason the lancer is leveling lightning fast is because of feint. I've had a similar experience that you had and i'm a pugilist. Don't feel left out. ;)

I don't know what the dealio is.

When I did dodos on my CON from 12 to 15, I was getting a good 200-400 SP per kill.

Now I'm back as a 12 THM and I'm getting anywhere from 0 to 150.
