31THM/20CON. Prior to the recent patch, I had done a considerable amount of exploration and trial & error in an effort to find a decent SP grinding path. I learned to work within the confines of the broken SP system and manipulate it to maximize my personal SP gains. (Sorry if that sounds selfish, but I think to some extent everyone did the same...)
My partying progression went from Island Crabs --> Yarzons / Eyes --> Blind Efts --> Black Efts...and it was going very well. Unlike some players that struggled with the random SP system, I got pretty good at heal sniping and consistently earned approx. 10K SP / hour (anywhere from 8K - 12K / hour depending on party composition and skill). Add in some dps, debuffs, and nukes, I was clipping along nicely.
After the recent patch, I'm not earning anywhere close to the SP/hour I was ripping before. The only mobs I can efficiently solo as a 31THM or 20CON yield anywhere from 85-100SP per kill and take anywhere from 90-120 seconds to kill. I've had moderate success in small groups, grinding on low HP mobs that die very quickly and yield 70-80SP per kill (e.g. Doblyn's in Copperbell). Solo leve's + Guardian's Aspect seems to yield decent SP but there just aren't enough of them and soloing them as CON or THM isn't all that efficient.
No one else seems to be up in arms about the changes to SP so I'm starting to think I'm doing something wrong. This patch has absolutely devastated my SP / hour.
Am I killing the wrong mobs solo or in party? Are leve's + guardian's aspect the best way to SP now? If so, should I be doing them in a group (link or share) or solo? Did all adventuring SP just get hit with a nerf bat so that I'll never realize 10K SP/hour ever again?
What's the best way to grind adventuring SP as a DoM now?
