As we know, with the new patch, all former ways of leveling have gone out the window. Things that yielded 500SP/mob now yield a measly 120SP/mob.
But instead of crying about it, how about we figure out the new way to rank up?
As we know, currently soloing low rank monsters for 50sp/each is the new fad. The problem is, most of these low rank mob spots cannot accommodate that many people due to low respawn times. Secondly, soloing is boring as ****.
What I'm thinking is: As a high rank, you get a party of 15 people and do guildleves. You have a choice whether or not to levelink now, so choose no and just rotate out. It's been reported that guildleves give lots of SP. I've gotten 150/each mob without guardians favor solo, and I expect that may go up with increased difficulty, leve sharing, and the party "bonus".
Perhaps it will yield a more favorable outcome?
