Leveling to 55 is to easy!

Level isn't the bottleneck in this game, gear is. Why shouldn't it be easy to level, does you no good without the gear to go along with it.

This recent perception of improving the life of carebears and buffing progress over-time is a very bad one. Instead of reducing the difficulty over and over again, they need to make it harder. People that are getting everything handed over to them are not the players to rely upon in the long run. They want to catch up in a minute and eventually they will complain about not having everything TET anyway, because its too hard. Getting past a certain point should be hard, they have made most things extremely easy and it needs to stop.

Hello

i was trying to reach 55 as fast as possible. No costume No 50% Scrolls. Just Milk Tea and Experience Elixirs. In my eyes its to damn fast. I did it in under 10 Hours. Started in the morning and was 55 in the evening. With 50% Exp Scrolls and better equip im sure you can do it in around 6-7 Hours. I was slacking a bit at the marketplace or for eating/bio things. So you can withdraw like 2 hours from the time in this screenshot.

Try starting from scratch, I could do it just as easy with equipment like that, but starting from scratch, building up your gear, it would take much much longer. Essentially what you're saying is, that because you have great gear and can now level fast, they should screw it for people that have only just started? Also keep in mind that a lot of people don't race to top level without actually playing the game, as there is a lot you can do in this game, and those that race to the finish are usually the ones that quit because they're now bored of the game. This is a sandbox mmo, it's not meant to be a race to 55, there are so many things you can do in this game and some people race straight past it all and never experience the game for what it's supposed to be.

They should have released all the KR classes at once (even if there's imbalance) and go slow on the rest. In that case there would be no need for huge catch up mechanics.

I really hope they don't try to make 55+ any easier lateron or this will really become a themepark MMO.

Why would anybody go higher then 55? The only benefit you have from 56-60 is PVE Advantage due to the 3 AP you get each level against PVE-Enemys. You dont get hidden AP or Accuracy for PVP. You dont get higher Protections or anything else that gives you an advantage in PVP. Game is over at level 55 aslong as you only want to do pvp. Level 56-60 just come from Grinding MONEY! You not grind for EXP anymore. You only Grind money and some chars also grind skillpoints. But thats pretty much it

A close friend of me just started playing, he did this whole 1-55 thing with quest equip and the blackstones he found. He ended up with a well rounded +11 equip and with level 51 he got his liverto from a boss. His playtime was less then a day. So with crap equip or just the stuff you found it still took you less then 24 hours playtime. And thats nothing in my eyes. I do not talk about equip here and that this is the major part to farm for pve/pvp to be competitive. Ofcourse it is. But levelingspeed was a big thing as i started playing. And now its just a joke. Even though the Creeps you fight hit like wet noodles. Its not challenging anymore. Not even with crap equip. We got promised to get a changed system with harder enemys and a slower progression curve. Because we do enjoy the challenge more then the koreans.

Now get to lvl 60 and get back to us on how fast that is.

@ guy above: You go above 55 so you are ready for awakenings since there will be skills that require 57 and above.

Why people never see the bigger picture...lvls mean nothing? When you grind you get skill points and money, skill points you can farm for awakenings (they cost ton of them) and money to get better gear. I hardly doubt you'll be able to compete vs 57-58 players as a 55 and surely not for the lvl.

Even if you dont want to go higher everything you do gives xp and at some point you level up? People are grinding for gear/money/skill points/scrolls/you name it, and gain levels along. I seriously doubt anyone in full +12 is just grinding to level. Personally I got to 56 to get the last infinite mastery skill and to have a bit easier time in Valencia. Purple mobs versus red mobs make a difference if I happen to solo around.

But you are welcome to stay 55 forever. Just out of curiosity, why would you do that?

pfff. scrub... as if 55 means anything, its not max lvl come back when you 60.... and you are doing it with a twink you moron -_- in which game is lvling twinks not fast and FGS why wouldnt you want it to be....

when that is said the game is not designed for you to enjoy the vast world, but for you to reach a STOP brick where you then stay for day's, week, months grinding the same mob for minimal progression, so you would want to buy power so to at least see something happen in your boredome -_-

And as you can see, as always, there are some ignorant players. Ignorant of the other players. Why the hell are there always idiots complaining when benefic changes, benefic not only for others, but also for themselves, are being made. Oh, I forgot, this is a "competitive" & "PvP" game, so some high level and high gear players would do anything to kill the competiton, even if it means QQing on forums about things such as XP boost.

Helms, manes, elrics, rogues or abandoned mines. Or join a guild group for sausages. Actually, join a guild for anything, it is faster and more fun grinding in groups.

I must be missing something I've been on several 2+ hour grind sprees at helms,elrics with milk tea,xp elixers and after 4 days I'm still 52 is there a trick I'm overlooking? Do groups give more xp or is it solo that's better I don't see how even with the gear it goes so fast.

I'm +15 yuria and +10 grunil with some DMG red stones on a witch and I take on as many mobs as I can group up with ease and my xp gain seems terribly slow.

So please enlighten us casuals on tips that may seem like common sense that we may be overlooking thanks in advance

I've been stuck on 52 for quite a while now.  Doesn't seem fast to me.

Join a random sausans group.  Even if they have absolute trash gear you'll still hit 53 in about an hour

Grats. Now go for 58. You'll change your tune real fast.

58 is pretty quick now.  I can get the same % xp per hour solo now as I could at 55 in a solid group right after mediah hit

Do this with a new account then come back. Your point is invalid OP

Try starting from scratch, I could do it just as easy with equipment like that, but starting from scratch, building up your gear, it would take much much longer. Essentially what you're saying is, that because you have great gear and can now level fast, they should screw it for people that have only just started? 

Both of these posts are frankly just dumb.  Unless OP has never played the game or he bought the account, chances are he did level from scratch.  The fact that this has to be pointed out actually really frustrates me, the average IQ of the people on this forum is brutally low.

Lets equate this to RL.  Lets say you work for a company for one year.  They pay you $5k a month for that year.  On December first, a new guy starts in the same job.  They pay him 5k as well, but he gets it every 2.5 days instead of once a month - are you happy with that?

Sure, level isn't everything, and you still have your income ingame.  But there was a point in the game where leveling from 53-54 took about the same amount of time as 1-55 now.  They have made leveling 5-15 times easier than it was early on, to the point where there is really no reason to even have levels.  They could take that out and just let the number of skill points take its place

OP is a troll.

55 is the new soft. Definitely wouldn't have hit 55 on a fresh account anywhere near that quickly.

Let's see what the OP thinks about exp rates at 58, with scrolls. I'll wait.

He didn't do it from a fresh account. He even posted the equipment he used to do it. +15 equipment, Witch earrings, I assume Ogre rings(don't know what they look like), whatever belt that is.

He used a Twink alt and supplied everything that he gained from his first character.

1-55 with a brand new account with no money and equipment isn't going to happen in 10 hours.

No its going to happen in like 20 hours. But if you would have read my other post you would prolly know. I dont know why this forum is full of shittalkers and haters. I havent seen such a toxic community before. What i just posted here is my personal feeling about the leveling speed and that i want to show you how fast it is. Everything i used is described in my topic. Not even used 50% Combat Exp Scrolls, just tea and experience elixirs. Thats 18% in total.

How long did it take you to get all of your equipment? I assume you bought it all and didn't make any  of it yourself?
