How to level efficiently

30 posts in this topic

Posted

I'm 56 with 162/164/198 gear but I'm struggling to enjoy the grind, I have all the weight limits sitting on 1265lt but every 30 mins I'm full (at sausans) and it's ruining my fun having to constantly head back to base (Heidel) to dump everything

The grind I can handle I spent months grinding in Lineage 2's Cruma Tower and the other constant party zones but it was more fun because we didn't have this weight limit bs (we did but it was better balanced, could grind for hours without getting full)

I even tried doing it with wagon but the wagon gets full too fast too so it feels pointless when I can use my horse with drift, instant accel and sprint and get to places much quicker than any wagon can

How do you guys do it ? There has to be some way apart from buying 5 warehouse maids to store all the loot every 20 mins ?

I'm not sure if this is gonna be helpful or worth anything to you but this is what i do, I do leveling and grinding for money separately.

For leveling i usually go Sausans / Pirates what i do is i dont take out my pets so i dont get any loots besides from special deals so in that way i can focus on grinding exp for 2-3 hours then i'll afk for a bit so i can eat, shower and rest.

For grinding money, i go to a place with item turn ins like collect X pieces of this and get XXG for example Soldier's Graveyard, Pirates, Sausans, Manshas and many more, I bring a wagon and park it safe then i drop my loots there whenever im full then go to the npc after and collect all my earnings.

 

It may sound slow for you but it works for me since my weight limit is not that great.

I didn't think of doing it that way, I guess I could go with just my combat exp pets out so I'm not filling up so fast

For the last week I've been grinding 5-10 hours every day. It's kinda boring, and tiresome, but at least I almost reached 59, so I guess it was worth it. (oh yea I grind like 2 weeks a year)

Get the stash at Kusha instead of riding back to Heidel?

For sausans, I always had my horse with me.

Periodically I would just overload the horse then if I got really full, I would sprint on my horse to Tarif, dump stuff in the warehouse then run back to Sausans.

But I was usually grouped with guildies/friends so they always held my spot for me when I came back.

For Pirates? I bring my boat and my horse on my boat as well.

Basicly this. I also have a stash at Kusha so when im super full i go thre for 2 mins and drop everything. Its connected with Tarif. You can overload your horse/ wagon/ boat, so it's pretty easy to grind that way without going back to town.

I grind at Gahaz, 5 10G bars for a villa pass. 3 1G bars for xp,ap, and resist buff. I also have milk tea, black spirit egg, cold draft beer, combat book or combat scroll and when its available the 200% xp daily grinding buff. It took me around 9 hours to get to lvl 57 from lvl 56 and since the villa is nearby you can repair and sell your stuff. If you have too much money you can also turn your silvers into bars and store it on your horse.

If you're in a group (which are damn easy to find on pirates), you'll hardly get overweight, and if you're on pirates, vendors with exchange are near - dump bandanas/coins in boat, the rest will be sold by auto sell. If you're solo, well, get a villa near your favorite valencia spot. Personally I don't bother with sausans at all - too crowded and i get full in like 10 mins. I earn far more xp/money on group pirates or solo valencia spots. Your gear/level should be fine for a group at pirates, and trust me, you'll level up and make money in no time!

I've never gone to pirates mainly because of the distance and the annoyance if boss spawns while I'm there, at Sausans I can make it to any boss thanks to fast horse, is Bashims a decent spot for xp ? Also I hear people mention bandits but have no idea where they are ?

If you're in Sausan make sure to bring a wagon/merchant in the center so while you're grinding you can easily dump extra weight on em til both you and your wagon is full.. you can also add some extra weight on getting  for those "maid"..

As others have suggested, a Storage Box at Kusha will connect you to the storage in Tariff. 

And if you exchange the tokens for gold bars, you can stash them on your horse/wagon more easily.

umh.. like other said

bring a horse and full it .. it has no weight limit (it is 6k or more) for 1 stack of pieces

buy a house in kusha and put there a container (which is connected to tarif ) and put what u need there

if u want more space , bring a wagon , which make u indipendent more and more

I parked a wagon in the outpost where you trade in 2/3 of the items that drop at sausans. When I get to full weight limit I just go there and trade in for gold bars and dump the leftovers on the wagon. 2nd round there I turn in items and then check if the leftovers in wagon is enough for another turn in else I dump leftovers again. 

Should last at least a few hours at scrub farming speed (cant voutch for anything else because Im a scrub when it comes to grinding in bdo).

 

The feeling of loading up your dwarf with thousands of ssc and a stack of pots and then grind for hours untill your pots and shots run out at exactly the same time is just something that belong to the golden days and sadly its unlikely that we will experience such a thing again :)

Even one storage maid basically lets you stay at pirates forever. Sell bandanas and exchange for gold bars. Transfer gold bars to calpheon and toss out coins. The amount of time you save from not having to travel equals out money wise in the end up gives you a lot more XP.

When I'm at sausans, I take a wagon and overload it.  When I get done grinding, I go turn it in.  I park the wagon at Kusha so my horse is close by to get back to civilization fast. 

 

When I'm at pirates, I take a boat and my horse.  I overload my horse with bandanas (can put as many as you want in there) and put my coins in the boat.  I'll farm out there for a week at a time, and when I'm done go turn everything in. 

 

I rarely ever go to either place to just grind for 30 minutes.  I stay for a week.  If I get bored of it, i'll switch to a lifeskill alt and do that for a while, then back to grinding.  Basically the only time I leave pirates on my main is when it's time for node wars on sunday.

little out of subject but how did you get a horse with sprint and instant accel at the same time? Also banshi is better than all other grinding spots i believe. When you overload ur horse and cant put anymore items just do this. Take everything out and put it back as whole. That works with mine. Im currently at the pirates and when i got my horse full and cant add anymore bandanas i just take it all to my inventory and put it back on the horse as whole. Maybe bug but im not complaining.
