Not getting SP, or working as designed?Follow

Hey all,

Noticed this a while ago, I figured it was just working as designed though. During fights (as conjurer - have not tested with other classes) I get the messages "You gain xx conjurer points" however I never "get" these points - the only SP I get is the SP at the end of the fight when the mob dies and it gives me exp and SP.

for example if I have just leveled and have 0 sp for my current new level and I fight and get 5 "You gain 50 conjurer points" messages during the fight and 1 "You gain 100 conjurer points" message at the end of the fight when I go and check my sp I will only be 100 into the level.. so where did the other 250 go?

I thought I was getting these points earlier, wondering if when SE "fixed" the conjurer healing thing it made it so conjurers no longer get sp during the fights?

Asked a LS buddy and he is not getting the points either (as conjurer).

Just bringing this up as I have seen some other posts where conjurers are saying that in a group they are being outleveled quickly by other jobs.

Thanks!

Something is adding up wrong, the SP at the end of the fight is just telling you the total you gained during the fight.

yes its a bit confusing but working as intended.

the "You recieve xxx skill points" message at the end of battle is a tally of all the skill points you got in said battle (you know, the little messages in your combat log when you hit the mob each time? yeah you don't get those til the battle is over).

You get zero skill points if you dont kill the mob.

It's not though.

I have fought mobs where I have gotten a few 60-70 SP messages in a fight and at the end of the fight I only get 100 SP.

210 > 100

EDIT: I'll double check when I get home, but I already thought that might have been it and calculated it out before.

If you're fighting at range and the monster runs back and heals, he has lost interest. I'm not positive, but I believe this, in addition to breaking combat, can cause a reset in SP gains. This is kind of lame because you have weaker armor to account for your ability to do damage from a distance.

I stand toe to toe with them and they never run. If I get low on health I just cure - just spam SD and Tranq when it is ready
