    Well, if you enjoy being stunned for 3 rounds, always facing a team of 80s in Arena that are around 80-90k higher than you in terms of BR, if you want to face the same type of players in every single BG, yes - do level fast.

    1. As a mid-range casher, I have set my sights on building a long-term strong character without spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to do it. This means I have to make optimal use of events. To achieve this, I have to save up on whips, soul crystals, mahra, sepulcrum, gems and even runestones until the regular events for them come up. When we use things during events, we get much higher benefits. So, we need to take things slowly because of such events granting us around +50% benefits.
    2. Also, I need time to make my 70 set, make it legendary, enchant it, then make it 80 and ultimately use holy cast on it. You can do this either by paying through the roof to buy items asap, or by taking it slow and grind for the items. The end result is the same, but your spending is very different.
    3. You need a lot of resources like kyanite, gold, insignia and crypt tokens to develop your character at high levels, and after 80 you add to that the resources for mount upgrading and holy cast. Again, you can spend crazy amounts of cash to buy these items or grind for them and get them for free.
    4. Honour is something that takes time, even with vip 9 - and if you rush into things rather than maximize first your holy seal and then your passive talents for every level, you will find yourself stunned practically every single battle. Not to mention that you must have very high level runes to stand a chance when facing level 80 players in Arena or BG. All of these things mean that you have to go slowly and maximize for every single level along the way before leveling up.
    5. Finally, if you do things slowly, you have time to watch strong player's builds and make up your mind what their mistakes were so you do not repeat them, and invest better.

    For all of the above reasons, slow leveling (with or without cashing) will always work to your benefit.

    If you plan to go level 80 eventually it is better to level up to 80 as fast as you can than to level slowly because you will be stronger.

    Someone who slow leveled to 80 will never be stronger than someone who leveled to 80 as soon as they could without spending more than they did or the fast leveler quitting.

    Or 2nd choice, convert block gems into pdef, mdef, hp.
    I'm not sure to keep current build or trade 6 block gems into 1 crit, 2 pdef, 2 mdef, 1 hp.
    With this 2nd build, my block will be 3.5k, pdef 16.5k, mdef 16k, hp 108k and crit 7.7k.
    Option 1: 15.0K PDEF 14.6K MDEF 104K HP 6.9K Block 7.1K Crit
    Option 2: 16.5K PDEF 16.0K MDEF 108K HP 3.5K Block 7.7K Crit
    Diff in %: +10% PDEF +10%MDEF +3.9%HP -49%Block +9%Crit

    That is a massive change in your Block.

    What is 4K of HP worth in terms of an average hit against you? is it even 1 hit?

    I can understand the DEF's increase and the crit increase. But the HP doesn't add up to me.

    Maybe drop 3 Block gems: 1 into Crit, 1 into MDEF, 1 into PDEF. That'll leave you with ~5.2K Block, and 4-5% increases on your other stats.

    Just as a middle ground suggestion...

    Aside from maybe trivial things regarding play style, I'm uncertain what to suggest aside from asking:

    You're not entirely socketted? your equipped gem count doesn't add up to 32?

    I reached all my goals ( all lvl 8 gems; 100k+ HP and at next wip event i will have lvl 7 stables and at next sc event hopefully 60+ engraving).

    I just made VIP 8 and until i finish my 60 set i think i will reach VIP 9 and i will do BG (i heard of 160k+ BR monsters in 55-64 BG and also in BG 50-59 i saw a knight with 117k BR) or earlier if i will be to bored. I really want to start sky trial for the daily horns and with luck to get my first purple sylph soon.


    Oh i will try to lvl in a BG to be the only lvl 60 there.

    Remember that Archers get a passive HP bonus. Just check what the top players on server are doing but in general it's never a bad idea to keep Endurance and Defense at about the same level.

    farming honour will help you get stronger yes. But that is not what I said. I said you should compete in 4v4 arena, and that will reward you insignia.

    How can i farm new sets without lvl my toon and gain exp?

    Or what should i do to improve my gear?
    Firstly welcome and I hope that you enjoy your time playing.

    The PvP sets (lvls 35, 45 & 55) are all available experience free. You just need to compete in cross server arena. You can (in certain events) trade in your PvP set for the next set up PvE wise (40, 50 & 60 respectively) also for no XP gain. Making those Legendary is also possible XP free - through purchasing the legendary stones from a suitably high level guild.

    However this way of doing things is an extremely lengthy process and hte game has a 'you must have XP' attitude. It wouldn't be easy doing things this way and the progress would be slow, like all camping/slow leveling.

    That said, if this is what you want to do: good luck.

    Otherwise to get strong, your options are level normally and cash heavily, or camp elsewhere higher up.
