You don't get bonus SP from anything but leve targets when under the Guardian's Favor effect. Sadly most targets die too fast to really rack the points up...
You know, I'm not saying this is wrong, but I'm most interested on knowing what data you have to back up this claim.
I have being trying to gather data on skill points per kill in the Nanny camp around Bloodshore in order to prove or debunk this, since my LS tend to grind with favor during leves on that camp, and to tell you the truth so far the data is inconclusive, I seriously can tell either way because skill points are at times so random.
I have been as far as collecting data from the same leve quest with and without guardian's favor and while I can say that there is a minor noticeable difference it would be really hard to even state guardians favor +% of SP.
The effect is quite noticeable with DoL leves. There are generally two kinds of DoL leves: Harvest 3 of X item, and deplete 3 of X harvesting points.
During a Harvest 3 of X items, if you have Guardian's Favor up, I may get ~150 SP for any item other than the target item, and ~600 for the target item. If I don't have Guardian's Favor, it's more like ~150 for regular/~200-300 for target item.
During a deplete 3 harvesting points, it doesn't matter whether I have Guardian's Favor on, I get approximately the same SP for all items, Guardian's Favor or not.
Based on this, I'm assuming you only get Guardian's Favor bonus on mobs that appear in the objective list (I don't even get Favor on "Kill this mob until you get 5 of X item" leves, because I am concerned that since the monster isn't the actual objective, Favor won't kick in).
