So this game is extremely confusing and just looking for a little help. Do they really expect me to run around killing mobs that give 200 exp for hours and hours until the levequests reset?

But the levequests take like an hour to finish. They think people are only going to play 1 hour every 3 days? Just seems weird.

well i guess they expect people to grind DoL and DoH skills to sell to each other as well.
but there's really no content in game other than leves and occasional story quests every 5 ranks or so.

That's exactly what they want you to do. Log out and wait for the reset.
They want people to pay to not play XD
Why do you think they added the surplus system?
;)

If it's XP you want, craft
If it's SP you want, well, yup. Grind away my friend.
Grind enough and you may just hit surplus tho.
Then you cant get anymore XP or SP anymore for your desired class until the reset.......

1.5 days. How is this any different from your average MMO? Welcome to the Grind.


Hint: Guild Leves are not even worth your time later on. You will not be able use them as a source of experience.

In my experience, average MMO will have quests to make the grind more easy to stomach.
In this game, quests are not there to help you grind, they're there as a carrot to make you grind.

Just wondering in regards to your hint, at what point are guildleves no longer a source of experience (and do you mean just exp or exp/sp) Currently at 20 right now and still use the Leves as a good source of Sp due to the Guardians favor that and i try to make the best use of my time. Generally average 300-500sp per kill depending on the Leve.

Just curious if I'm still below the point you are speaking of.

I've been putting my lancer on the side; only doing level 30 leves for some extra gil so I am able to keep track of how much SP these leves are netting me. From observations 8 Lv30 leves at level 27 gains me approximately 2,000 SP, most of the time less. I use GF whenever I can, average GL mob nets me ~100 SP (weaker mobs often 0 though.) 8 Lv30 GL take me roughly 2 hours to do, so I'm looking at 1,000SP/hour. Pretty awful.

Basically its a cut off point for how much experience/sp your allowed to gain per week for your level/classes so that casuals players are on a more equal playing field as hardcore players.......
The video explains it pretty well.

Ok, Thanks Sylph for answering my question, Guess I'm still fairly lucky right now as I havent quite hit that mark yet. I don't do a whole lot of Partying so currently Leves are a fairly decent choice for me, I do get the occasional one that is overly easy 1-2 hit a mob no matter the difficulty (those tend to be quite a bit less sp). Other than that I tend to do between 6-8k per Hr with the leves so its fairly decent, and tends to be a bit more interesting than grinding the same mobs.

As for the Op if your doing all your leves in an hour I think you may be doing them a bit too quickly, you get a half hour of guardians favor if your blowing through leves at 7.5mins per you may want to try upping the dificulty a bit or try some harder ones.
