I'm seriously getting irritated. My SP was wonky before the patch. I know that if you kill a monster with Wide Volley/etc. as an Archer you risk lower SP gained. I've tested this on my Lancer, Pugilist, and Conjurer and the problem exists on all three classes over the course of two months.
However, even just single target I have *YET* to break 250 SP from a monster in solo, during a leve, or during a leve *WITH* Guardian's Favor. I started off on the normal incredibly high numbers when I was level 7 and it dwindled down to around 125 - 200 per monster while on leves (I don't even want to talk about off of leves....) with GF. Post update, it doesn't seem better or worse and it took me 8 rank 20 leves -- I duo with a Conjurer friend -- to simply gain a level and go from 18 to 19. I just barely got that, as the majority of the monsters were just giving me double digit SP. Experience seems OKish, but still less than half of what she gets (who at the time was much lower than I am).
She, however, went from 14 to almost 20 tonight. It's really ******* me off. I know it isn't fatigue because I haven't leveled for almost 2 weeks prior to tonight. I've been battling this ever since I've started to level two months ago and it's seriously killing any potential desire to see what I can get to on my limited work schedule. She, however, was easily seeing 600 - 900+ on certain leves consistently (since most were orange/yellow). I haven't, and probably never will, see the yellow fatigue text simply because my work schedule is gruelling atm.
Are there *any* ideas why this would be happening.
The only thing I can think of is that it doesn't matter what monster it is, it cons blue to me. I can be level 1 Thurm (which I haven't leveled just yet), staring at an Aldgoat Billy and it'll con blue. I can switch targets on the Archer, and no matter whether I start the leve or she does (no matter what star settings) EVERYTHING cons blue. I'm aware that it can sometimes "stick" to blue con when something isn't, but I've never, ever, seen anything other than a blue dot on a monster.
/check would be nice.
