Fished to lvl 45, now behind on skill points


11 posts in this topic

Does anyone know the best way to catch up so I can grind mobs of my level?

I am a casual player so I do a lot of afk fishing.  I am now 45 and want to grind mobs kill stuff and pvp, but my skills are not leveled up to do enough damage to mobs of my level.  Should I just go back to Glish and catch up all my quests from there on to get combat skill points?

What would be the fastest way to catch up my skill points and get my skills stronger?  I was able to buy some decent weapons/armor from all the money I had saved up from fishing.

Thanks for your help!

You get skill xp for using your skills so go destroy a few billion greys until you can hit mobs your own level.

quests will give you some combat exp but you will still be behind in damage, might as well use some of that money you made while afk fishing and buy a +8- 10 weapon.

I'm 39 with AFK fishing mostly. Very little active fishing. Taken a month. Active fishing would be much faster, so 45 is plausible in a month i guess.

Trading fish in also gets you a lot of XP. If I didn't kill myself dozens of times I would be over 40 already. I get about half a level with half an inventory of fish nowadays once. Trading in gets me another 7% or so.

I should say, when I got nearly 50% of level from about 50 fish it was yellow/blues. With a tad more than half being yellow. That is really rare. 2 were the coel fish.

I'm re-running the test and getting about 15% of a level from 50 fish. This time mostly blue, with only 1/8 or so yellow.

Yes, fishing + when you cash your fish in at the trader, that gives you a lot of xp as well.  I started when the game officially launched, no headstart/early access, and I'm now 45.  I did some combat quests up until around the glish area then just mainly fished because I did not have a lot of time to actively play.

You get skill xp for using your skills so go destroy a few billion greys until you can hit mobs your own level.  

Too bad I did not have the time to level up normally, billion greys it is :(.  Too bad I cannot afk combat lol.

quests will give you some combat exp but you will still be behind in damage, might as well use some of that money you made while afk fishing and buy a +8- 10 weapon.

I agree good idea, I bought +15 yuria and offhand, and some nice jewelry.

Thanks for your help guys!  Have some catching up to do.  Looks like I won't be able to afk the combat part of the game.

I went from 40-50 Active fishing in 5 days (12+ Hours Daily), wasn't all that hard. Catching up in Skill Points only took about 4 hours of grinding 50 mobs.

I'll eventually be in the same boat with my AFK fisher if i bother.

Well that's not bad, I tried killing some mansha's (red color for me atm) but could not down them before they rushed and damaged me.  Maybe I will try my luck with some green or white mobs.
