Who\'s the best exp\'er?

Postby Rausrh » Mon May 14, 2001 2:20 pm

Lets find out who has spent the most time on the mud and find out who has been exp'ing hard and who has been slacking off...

Post your chars playing time, level, race and class. Also post where you get you exp, unless you want it all for yourself heh heh.
Troll Warrior
level 15
Experience Progress: >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >
Playing time: 1 days / 2 hours/ 12 minutes

Most of my exp time has been down in dk with various mobs.

My guess is that Tod.. err Cherzra has the lead...heh heh

Rausrh licks you.

Level 28 in 6 days, I haven't played the whole first day (I was autorolling) and I haven't played today (work started again). I messed around doing small eq here and there or I might have made 30.

I will be dropping back to the 'average' leveled ranks soon though, since the vacation I had last week is over... Image

Who cares?

Everyone capable of dishing out constant amount of damageexp will be much higher than anyone else.

And I find it extremely ironic that the ONLY time I get anything remotely decent exp is when I play like a BAD enchanter and don't cast stones/rays/hastes and just cycles magic missiles for damage exp.

This is so class, race, location, and ptime dependant its not really anything folks can measure. Although there is a noticable 2-tiers of expers. There are the folks that are no-nonsense like to get max xp per every second, and there are the folks that explore/have fun/are new to the mud thus taking much longer per level. Personally I like to get the exping over with quickly so I don't like to screw around much, but I have been in several exp groups that had a really good time at it.
Military precise groups! Image,

Oh 24, at work, I think im at 3 days ptime, em and mainland and a good deal of equiping.

This is more just for fun than to see which class has an easier time exping. Some people are doing more exploring of the new areas, or trying to get new eq or just sitting around chatting while others are just gunning for the levels.

I fully expect to see support classes having a harder time getting exp than damage classes. Enchanter esp. because of all the utility spells that are expected out of them by the tanks. I know I've played one. I would feel lucky if I got one constrict in among all the stones, globes, hastes, rays yada-yada...

Cherzra what is you playing time? or is it 6 days?

Rausrh licks you.

Yeah Jeg, been noticing the same thing. Really sucks. Image

I really wish they'd imp some kind of exp for enchantments... Even if you could only get exp for casting it every 2-4 minutes or whatever, to prevent cheesing.

That or just make the duration of enchantments last a LOT longer... And keep the hits on stone, etc the same.. So spells last longer, just not when actually in use.

Dunno, be nice to come up with a solution. Kinda tired of gettin ignored on the issue. Damage exp was a nice bonus, but we don't do much damage to begin with, and our job is mainly to stone, globe, haste, etc... So there isn't much time for a good enchanter to nuke past 21-26th levels.

You can do it, just not much.

Wasn't there talk about giving enchanters bonus exps for damage that their stone prevented? (i.e. clerics get exps for healing x hps, why not give enchanters exps for preventing x damage). This might require a stone rewrite (saving the casters name), and maybe force the enchanter to be present (otherwise could be twinky).
Just a thought,

Totally agree Malacar. I had a few nice tanks play punching bag for me, even when they're getting 2% and me 8% on same mobs, but as I explained last night that's gonna change as soon as I get haste. Basically I won't be able to cast much damage for 4th circle, just more good ole magic missiles Image
And the next circle is stoneskin, guess what's gonna fill that circle? I love the exp bonus we got, helps us thru the terrible low levels, but the next 10 lvls is gonna blow for exp.
My hats off to the tanks that have helped me.
You're assured a haste in battle Image

Playing time: Coming up on 2 days.
Level: 15.5
Killed: Undead, tough mercs, buffalos, wives and a spattering of pods.

Level 18 Human Cleric
Playing Time: 2 days / 2 hours/ 22 minutes

Been grouping with Hyldryn a lot (lvl 25 Pal now), who I must say is the god of non-stop killing. Been cycling through a good mixture of bgr stuff, IC mobs, and WD mobs to keep trophy low.

Lvl 21
4 days/6 hrs

That includes finding Trollbark the hard way(2 deaths).

Jegzed group-says: Hey guys lets go do TF (1 death).

And a few various others.

Let me add that cleric exp is ick. Unless you find a group that slays at lightning speed it's a pain. I will say my exp has seemed to go up somewhat since getting heal, don't know if thats related or just cause of the group I was in yesterday.

------------------
That is all. Peace.

I guess the best exper is defined by whom plays most, most of us can play as much as we wish we did.

Funny to see the highest player is a caster and even more funny that is a necro, nothing personal and i hope nobody takes it as a whining but i thought mages should be harder to exp than hitters since with levels they are more versatile.

Oh yeah you right Raursh :P.. Anyway, since other non-vokers have the ability to deal good damage, i hope those clases get their exp tables fixed to avoid everyone to roll the same class and have the same situation prewipe when invokers were first put in.

Right now I'm the highest at 31. Cherzra has been doing a lot of eq, and has quite a bit less ptime than me though, so I'd say she's doing much better.

Here is some tallys so far:

Rausrh:....level 15 average of 1.7466666 hours per level.
Grindipple.level 15 average of 3.0666666 hours per level.(Guess based on 46 hours playing time)
Vazzgo:....level 16 average of 2.3312500 hours per level.
Rylan:.....level 18 average of 2.7981481 hours per level.
Gerad:.....level 19 average of 3.5815789 hours per level.
Hamibugan:.level 21 average of 4.8571428 hours per level.
Todrael:...level 27 average of 4.1808641 hours per level.
Cherzra:...level 28 average of 3.9285714 hours per level.
Todrael:...level 32 average of 4.9296875 hours per level.

Well now it seems the Rausrh is the winner! Heh Heh... of course the lower levels go alot faster so this is meaningless but I just wanted to point out the I WIN!!!

Gimmie my prize!

If you factor in the 'troll' factor (ptime*2), It looks more like Vazzgo is the clear winner Image.
