    XP is still useless?

    This is a question to those who got the patch already: XP is still useless? or you need it to get the new skill points or something?

    As far as I'm concerned, you're totally right. Game plan totally messed up here, forced to level, meaning I wasted awful amounts of gold on my current gear, won't have enough gold or honor to switch to the next ... totally not amused, I'm about to quit.

    TOK NM that is cute. The players that are camping waiting for their talent levels and BR to get higher before leveling can't enter ToK NM. Heck I just beat ToK normal for the first time 2 days ago I got 60 insignia. the problem is that leveling fast left me WEAK for my level. I do get 10% more from dungeons and a bit more from BQs... and am slowly making up for the losses from not being able to complete my mpds (though may be a bit different than others that are camping because I was the first 70 on my server and was a while before I had a second person to be able to beat Samsara normal, then a 3rd to beat LL NM) so I either killed first boss in LL for 5 loids or did DT for exp).
    The biggest issue imo is still honor however, particularly with the new patch coming out where you not only get better bonuses from better PvP medals but now get stat boosts for every rank, which will be an instant power boost to those players that camped and raised honor in the much easier BGs.
    I understand what you are saying and that you are happy with it is great. However I was not and desperately wished I could lower my level for months after hitting 70. More than likely since you started 16 months earlier than me in this game that is just now celebrating it's 2 year anniversary that when you hit level 80 it was not as much of a shock as it is for players that hit level 80 now. Heck you were competing against players that had less than 3 month edge instead of players that have been 80 for over a year with refined sylphs of death level 80 leg gear and max HS, not to mention all the other assorted things like gems, fates, mounts etc.

    Ok, so there will be some advanced talents in the future which uses XP.

    Advanced class skills don't need it yet. Thx!

    Yeah, have to agree with that.

    I decided to rush for lvl. 80 and then work on talents, since level 80 is the best one to camp :P
    After all, I had my talents maxed earlier than them and there was a time, when the situation turned upside down and I could stun them for 3 turns.
    On level 80 my exp gain was faster than their on level 69 or even on 70+ levels.

    Not only I grew my HS/talents faster, but also got ~10k BR advantage after 3-4 months.

However Wartune developers do not excel common sense.

I leveled to 70 fast and started on my 70 set but did not have enough honor to buy loids from arena shop and could barely gain any honor in BG 400 at most which could disappear with one loss to the wrong opponent, then you have to leave BG or risk being set back days by another death to someone that now knows they can camp you for honor. Then trying to get arena group felt like I had the plague as no one wanted to have to fight the opponents I brought not getting warriors mark for months, not getting many insignia to buy the loids with. I still will only enter BG to get the 5 shards and leave before the match starts it will be a very long time before I can hold my own there. The gain... I am a bit ahead of the players that leveled slow in getting my 70 set, though they have their 60 leg set and higher stats allowing them to do better in events and are only about a week behind me for 70 set since they bought loids with insig from the much easier arena matches, and have their Lord Divine medals from the easier BGs.

No longer having to worry about HS, no longer really needing to use it. I know I don't on either of mine with it capped. Skills do more damage. Sylph then delphic them while they try to stun you with HS which fails because your capped wasting their round. You're not maxing your rewards, your losing things that other people are gaining daily, thus you are falling behind, and will always be behind the curve. If no one will group to do MPs then people are overestimating how much BR is actually needed for these dungeons. I had been doing 70NM on my main before even Blessing Wheel was out. a Party of 70k-80k will have 0 issues in 70NM. a party of 45k-55k will have 0 issues with 60NM, 65NM is around 60k-70k BR and there are no issues. 80 Normal no issues with 80k BR. 80NM I've done it with a party of 97k-110k BR between the group. no issues just depends on how much hp your tank has and knowing the rounds for 80NM at that BR. I have 160k BR on my main with only VIP and a few of the clothing packs bought as a Crit+Block mage not using any def gems, last I calc'd would be around 170k BR if I used def but I've never cared about BR and would rather go with what works for me. My other mage is 140k with only 2 clothing packs bought on him. But each player will have their own way of doing it. I'm just saying if you are after rewards to keep getting stronger maxing all your rewards daily will get you there quicker than snailing for holy seal.

By avoiding exp, you are also avoiding things which give BR such as soul crystals, whips, loids, stones, gold, etc. That's not to say you won't earn any of those resources, but you will earn a less amount in the same time period than if you were to not camp. Which means you'll be falling behind, something you said from your first post that you want to avoid. The solution isn't to camp harder, it's to stop camping.

    All camping does is let you fight a greater proportion of newer players in level limited events (BG, Arena). It does not save you from facing cashers. It does not allow you to perform better in non-lvl limited events (WB, GB, Sky Trail, Necro, Catacombs, CW, God's Descent). I mean, you can always have goals of a certain BR, completing guild skills, etc. by a certain level. That can be rewarding, but it will not help you to "catch up."

    So if you truly desire to catch up, then it is best to stop camping. If you truly desire to meet a series of goals by metric of lvl, then camping is what you should do.
    well from what i have seen, falling in a trap is rushing to lvl 80. So you get there with below 100k br..and no 70 set now what?? you sit there camping to raise HS so you can do BG again?? cos that the only real place HS Lvl is of use. Sure it can be used only once..but 9/10 times that all it takes to turn the battle..use as they slyph. Anyway I see alot of unhappy players with their game plan totaly screwed by this xp drop...i reckon alot of players wil quit due to it. Plead for help MPD to get your 70 gear...to get ur 80 gear, because you ran out of time on the way to lvl 80 to lvl your HS ??? What a mess.

They dont add to your progress stuff all....they add to your xp gain, also you gain more rewards from killing wilds monsters than tok or spire, shadow crystals grow on tress and are everywhere, as are sc, runes get more from tanks etc so all these can be obtained without the added xp gain, dragon souls can be got from void NM again with little xp gain. I seen so many players rush to lvl 70- 80 and get there with low br..noone will help them run their MPD's and they......quit. Point im trying to make is this xp change gives others who had the time to lvl HS and build strength a huge advantage over those of us who are in the process of doing what they had the time to do...but we no longer have that time. Going by the lvl 70 and 80 players in my server...last thing i need to do is get to their lvl fast....cos i will be fodder without cashing hard....and most of them have been playing this game alot longer than me. As a rule i let my BR and HS lvl determine how fast i lvl..and will continue to do so..except I will have to forget about lvl HS for awhile. And by the way, I dont camp..well if you call gaining xp to lvl HS camping..but now Im going to camp all I can to raise br with the hope of surviving a 3 round stun.
