When leveling to 50, Unless you want to be first in EU/NA, dont use a mount.

80 posts in this topic

You should generally not use a mount. 

WHy is this important? Well let me explain, whilst this may increase your levelling time by around 2 hours, it will give you a welcome bonus to your stamina, which is really quite important. 

Why is stamina important? Well it increases the amount of dodges you can do during fights, Dodges become important at later levels for obvious reason. Grinding Mobs, they hit harder at 50. 

And more importantly, PvP. You will learn the meaning of "useful" with the amount of dodges you have. 

Breath has a max level of 30, which equates to a total of +500 stamina. It is really important. Dont miss out for the sake of a mount early on. 

Buying the weapon skin from the CS will increase your stamina by 100, 20%. Buy it. 

To be clear, this is only relevant to your first character.

If you're grinding as fast as you can to 50, running rather than using a mount over a 20 or so hour period will only net you an extra 100~150 stamina. Stamina can easily be trained at any point in the game, rather than while grinding.

Yes it can, but it will slow you down at 50. depending on your class it will vary by how much. Its just recommended to do this way on your first character because you wont have the gear for speed farming at 50. You lose around 2 hours, whilst netting yourself a decent increase which outweighs those two hours you lost. 

This is NOT relevant on alts.

With the gif you show, I suggest you carry a trade pack, it will help you with building up your body to carry more weight.

I'll afk up my Breath/Stamina when I'm not playing. Since I have no laptop I'd leave my computer on with the game making my character run in circles. This would be most likely during my classes. 4 Hours for the class and an extra 3 or so hours for 2-4 Days depending on my classes.

I got my Breath to 15 in a good 8 Hours, First Day of Beta. Stamina was at 8 I think after 7 Hours. Not doing classes but me Sleeping. But for Head start I think I'd grind till 25 so I don't have to deal with the Area Rush in the beginning area. Since those are soooo fun. Also would raise contribution for a house to run in circles in, don't want to bother the other folks

BTW I noticed that my Breath did not gain xp while carrying the Trade pack, might be since it was at a higher level but it's just something I noticed

There has been no word on auto looping. Hope its in the game. Once you hit 50, you will be wanting to obtain gear and a good ability high tier horse. spending time doing stamina at this point is not so good, you cant level weight and stamina at the same time, + you will be wanting to run your mounts round for 96 hours ASAP. 

Basically doing stamina first and as early as possible even at the cost of a few hours wont hurt, it will save you the time later which you need for more important things.

So is AFK'ing in for the NA version, I couldn't seem to get auto waypoints to work in Beta2 and someone had said they were removed from the NA version.  I personally don't know if it was removed, turned off or just not functioning but I hope it is in for release I was planning to AFK my stamina. :)

I hope it's not removed so I can leave the game on for 8-12 hours while I'm at work.

That way I can level breath and strength while afk.

 I assume you are aware but they have to be levelled separately. But yeh the game is built with auto looping in mind its strange to remove it.

I did it the old fashion way, had a controller with hair ties pulling the stick to the left/right then pressing T on key board. Makes me run around in circles. Also as a bonus I placed something on the shift to make me sprint over and over again.

As far as I know? NOPE the Auto-Loop is not in the NA version

I disagree. 8 months playing in korea. Levelled to 50 4 times, experienced about 70% of the games "content" if you were to % on it though i dont know if thats even possible, the game is endless,completed at least a piece of everything in game, explored all the crafting system, levelling system, breeding system, GvG, Open world PvP, i know what items and sets work with what classes, i understand inside out the node system and trading system. etc the list goes on.

but then i backed it up with my reasoning. To further back it up , it is recommended to do this for your first character in Korea and Russia, though i am unsure about Japan.

Because gear is not, level locked, just put the best gear set on your alt and destroy everything with ease and stamina will not be required so much at level 50+ initially. Stamina is basically not a priority on alts.

They have said that it will be disabled on release but will be added at a later date.

No problem. To be clear, incase you are unsure, Stamina and weight must be levelled up seperately. You cannot just wear a trade pack and level both basically. Also remember when levelling weight, fill your bag up so you go over your weight limit with a trade pack on.

How come its not relevant on alts? Do alts and main share stamina level?
