Skill Up GainsFollow

Here is the thing: I'm a rank 20 Pugilist / 26 Physical, I've been able to get real good skillups until 17ish fighting green to orange mobs (40per hit, and pug can hit 2 times per normal attack, plus 100+ per skill), for about 300+ skilup every mob. Now all of a sudden I'm getting seriously bad skillups, be them on blue or red mobs; 10-20 per hit and 40 per skill, and I barely get any at all (I'm lucky if I get 3-4 skillups per mob). Tried soloing on every difficulty of mobs, tried in a party on red mobs, still the same. Am I doing something wrong or what? I'm not exp capped, and my equipment is completetly repaired.

Nature of the beast. SP gains slow down to give you incentive to party for the SP bonus.

Yes, they nerf solo SP really hard somewhere around 15-20 to force partying.

I don't get it. Didn't they clearly say they wanted the game to be group AND solo play? Or are we supposed to go solo only on leves?
Anyway, I did try doing some party on crabs and the likes, but the skillups are still really low.

I hate to say it, but if you are not getting nice sp per hour in a party "you are doing it wrong".

Several questions, how many were in the party, what was rank range (was the 5 rank bonus in effect), what crabs Giant or Island. If Island crabs were they the ones in Cassiopeia Hollow.

At 20, you can form a 20-25 party and kill yarzon in Mistbeard cove. You will probably want 2 maybe 3 healers and 5 or 6 DD. You can easily get 500 SP from pretty much every mob, certainly 10-12K SP an hour is possible

At 22-27 you can take eft, same location. Eft are so good that 22-33 parties work, and here the 5 rank bonus is not as important.

Hope this helps


Forgot to add. Please use the party search and recruit system it is starting to work nicely. You can set a party to recruit between a set rank range and people can join from any continent without an invite. Also, standing at the aetheryte in Mistbeard cove will help as most are hanging out there *certainly on melmond this is the case)

If you really do want to solo, at 20 I found Coerthas to be very good, mobs nr camp glory puk and squirrel. The Mun Ty Cellars are also good sp solo
