So I read on these boards that the new rage is grouping with 10+ ppl in cassi to net some sick SP. I tried this yesterday. While it was great fun, we maxxed out at 5k an hour.

How are you guys doing it?

5k an hour is still pretty amazing imo. I just partied for like 3-4 hours and only made 7k total. I'd like to know how people are doing this. Even if it's only 5k/hr. I can handle that. :)

the only way i can think of is if the mob aoe damages and youre playing a caster. we get mad , MAD sp on group heals that actually hit multiple targets.

with the update a few weeks ago make sure everyones levels are within 5 levels from low to high. That way you keep the bonus SP/EXP. If someone falls outside that narrow range, the bonus is shutoff.

As a rule, keep your weapon repaired (there has been talk about as your weapon wears you get less skillups)

From my experience as a melee, change up your attacks. I seem to get more steady skill ups by using a variety of attacks / weapnskills vs. using only normal attacks.

as caster it seems skill ups happen more often and more beneficial when you have more people around that are effected by your spells. (healing more people when they have HP to be healed, protect/shell when it's not on.)

3 Ways I know to constantly get high SP.

1. Play an Archer.
2. Play a healer healing multiple people taking damage.
3. Play a tank and spam taunt on mobs a lot higher in level than you.

Other than that you should just get as much ACC as you can. The more you attacks you actually land then the better SP you will get overall.

I have 6 weapons on me at all time. I switch when one goes red. Also use Weaponskills that have a secondary effect. They give the best SP.

Group 5-6 people on Hippocerf/Black Eft, at rank 25 I can net a 150-200 SP a hit sometimes with big damage skill in a party, with average 50-80 SP per normal hit, total SP gain per kill fluctuate from 200-500, an average fight is less than a minute. 10k SP/HR is very much possible depends on what you kill, what you group with and how much damage you do. Yes, damage you do, those mobs are quite tough and you can get like 1 SP per hit if you do some measly damage with a low level weapon.

level 18 conj, i get around 8000-9000 an hour.

How? simple.

There is a leve that constantly generate evefly, get that mission, turn on guardian invoke.

Then start grinding the imps until you have 1 pair left, leave the area and level near by killing stuff (guardian invoke doesn't work on anything outside of leve monster) and return to kill the evefly whenever they respawn (also use your detect all)

I got around 2-3k from guardian leve alone. within that 30 min, if you get 2 of these level, you can get 5k roughly from both, if you do grind while waiting for the evefly respawn, you can get up to 5k roughly.

Remember, turn shockspike off. Never use it.

Was getting 12k/hour in a 2 person party from 17-20, had zero downtime between mobs just beating up jellyfish in whatever the **** that cave is called near bloodshore. Due to in part the nice people who saw we were clearing the one tunnel over and over and left the 3-4 spawns be.

5k an hour is pretty average. I can get 10 - 15k on 3 leves, with guardian aspect. Total 1.5hrs.

LV20 Lancer

Without Guardian aspect, soloing can reap in about 5k an hour, if I choose the mobs correctly....
