Keep lifeskilling on main or make alts?

37 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I currently have 6 toons, going on 7 soon.... Any toon will gather, just depends who is where. 

 

1. Main Scout, the toon I first open up an area with, nodes and so on..... If I decide to do end game or pvp, will be main for this

2. Main character... Follows behind the main, this is the character I use most for game immersion... pve only toon, main for pve.

3. Alt 1.... Fishing, she lives in Velia (processes for herself only when space is low and I need to get space back processing grey and greens. 

4. Alt. 2... Horse training, lives in Heidel

5. Alt 3... Processing, lives in Calpheon (processing of all else, items I trade or sell on market)

6. Alt 4..... Cook, Lives in Heidel (Processing for herself only)

7. Alt 5... (not yet created) will be a dedicated trader, like a truck driver, will sleep over in any city. 

 

I find it is way better and keeps me more organised to have a "family" all working to help each other. I am also getting more contribution points, the  more I level up each one (doing the missions).  Also, it is a huge time saver in the long run, having alts in different cities... You need something done there, log in with that alt and no unnecessary travel time. 

Enjoy!

 

BTW, my wife is following the same formula I am using..... It is working great for her too.

I use the char that has most LT and 192 inventory slots, I purchased all life skill costumes on that toon and placed my life skill alt calpheon so I can switch between my main class when i want to grind or do pvp and switch back to life skill alt when i go afk or don't want to actively play the game

Daily settlement support funds.... 400k each at lvl 40+. Its the daily missions you get from the black spirit.,....  Ok, I have to do a quick mission each after logging in, but its quick. I have one toon still under 40, she gets 200k at lvl 22.  

 

its 40k not 400k, I don't know where u got that

I guess the eyes have become that bad..... When I get the mission again tonight, I will definitely move closer to the screen....   I did not mean to provide false information, thanks for enlightening me.  :)

Do you know what's the peak for processing?

Hard to say.  There's serious diminishing returns.  My IMPRESSION is that getting to high Skilled or low Professional gets you over 90% of the benefit in terms of output and byproducts.  Having said that, there are some small benefits to getting higher levels in some skills.  If you want to do imperial deliveries for alchemy, the big money is at higher levels (Master 1).  In order to see fishing hotspots, you want a higher level.

So, unless you're hardcore/minmaxer/no-life, getting to Pro 1 puts you in really good shape.

The only life skill I decided to have split was fishing, just because of the Margoria expansion and how long it takes to get there. Everything else I put on one toon, just because there is enough stuff to manage in the game besides characters.

I have most of my lifeskills on my main and that worked well for a while. But with the size of the map ever expanding, I have broken my alts up into a Logging team, a Farming team, and a Main/Alt Questing fighting team. That way the Farmers are always near the farms, the loggers are always near the trees etc.

I use 3 life skill alts. one for working my farms when they have energy. The other two are used to gather rough stone and logs. My main does the real gathering. Fast horses are nice for reducing travel times. Each alt has a T6 or higher horse.

If it hasn't been mentioned another bonus to doing it on your main is that you'll be playing them the most which means they'll regen more energy for you to spend compared to an alt that isn't always logged on.
