ive been watching my sp gauge every battle, and the only sp i actually get from them is after a kill. it shows that "You gain 30 conjury skill points" from casting spirit dart, but doesnt accumulate in the SP gauge....

is anyone else having this trouble? After killing an emerald bee swarm, i get 102 conjury skill points, and my sp gauge increases. I get between 90-200sp from just casting skills, but sp gauge doesnt increase.

SP is award once the creature is dead. Those figures you see during combat are tallied at the end of the fight into one lump sum you see as...

EXP 200
SP 200

etc

Kargar is right and SP is in fact tallied after the battle has ended. It will show you SP gained every time you do something that causes the proc to happen (you gain 30 SP, you gain 50 SP) but its only when the monster is dead that you get the final tally which is "you gain 80 SP" and your rank gauge finally moves. Conjury also gets two tallies at the end of a fight -- one appears to be for healing procs and one appears to be for damage procs.

I have a question but didn't want to start new thread for it.

If you AOE a group do you only get SP for the one mob?

No. AOE attacks work the same as healing AOE: you get one SP roll per target touched.

Also for the OP, everytime you do an action you get a roll, sometimes it gives SP. You do not gain the SP until the mob is dead however. At the end of the fight you get the total of SP won.

This is actually kind of wrong. When you kill something with AoE, the skill gains are discarded unless they came from the killing blow. You can test this by killing a bunch of mobs with AoE only. You'll notice that you'll get full exp (not sp) from the one you have targeted but the other mobs only give you single digit exp because you are only credited for the last slivers of health.

Also, if you are fighting two mobs simultaneously and keep alternating between targets, you lose some of the sp you've gained during the fight. I'm not entirely sure what makes the game discard gained sp, but somehow you lose credit for mobs that are not constantly targeted.

I never seem to get more SP when AOEing though? Also if you get a SP roll for every mob, shouldn't the same happen for xp? Because if you kill a group with an AOE attack I still only get xp for one mob?

During leves when you fight linked mobs (or 'groups') you can freely AoE each group and gain full EXP and SP per mob. It works since engaging one mob tags the entire group to you, unlike normal circumstances where you can only have claim to one mob at a time.
