I have mainly been focusing on DoL/DoH and haven't really picked a main DoW class yet. But recently I decided to go with PUG because multiple people told me it was a nice solo class and I prefer to solo most of the time.
I've reached Rank 28 and am started to be confused by the amount of skill points I'm getting per mob. I have a heavy FFXI background so perhaps that is part of the problem.
At Rank 26 I was killing Puks in Coerthas which was super confusing because I could kill Rank 35-58 Puks very easily but was getting the same amount of skill points even if the Rank was higher. So then I learned that skill points are capped at 10 Ranks above which still doesn't make any since as I was only getting 255 max skill points when at lower levels I would get close to 400 for that high of a mob.
At Rank 28 I accidently ran into a Rank 36 skeleton in Nanawa Mines and mowed it down quickly. I got 350 skill points!!!???!! Do not understand. I've peripherally noticed that skill points gain differs by mob but why and how??
Is there any resource available that explains these concepts? Or a chart showing how sp can (apparently) vary between different types of mobs?
Thanks for the help!
