(Sorry in advanced if you're too new to understand some of my terminology*
Bounty Board - Kill count quest that rewards the same amount of EXP from hunting.
3xBM - a 30min 3xEXP buff item.
Booster event - Can someone link?
SO.. I keep seeing people with mass amounts of accounts following them and I'd like to point out a few things for new players. They are actually leveling very slow.
When you see this, if you haven't already, it's a good sign that these people don't actually know what they are doing and I'm here to give you some incite as to why it's FAR insufficient.
1. First of all what they are doing is using a high level to make the kills for bounty boards on other accounts. Meaning they miss out on the 2x exp (actually 2.25x) event that's going on right now. Yes the bounty turn in is also x2, but that means they are only leveling as normal, or slower. This is because none of those accounts are getting any of the exp from actually killing the monsters.
2. Yes a 3xBM works on bounty boards but they are missing all of the exp from hunting while it would be active. Not to mention how much it would cost. (So now we're at 25% normal exp and this is during a 2x exp event.)
(2.5) Lets not forget a 3xBM is only 2xEXP for non vip accounts.
3. Did they pay for vip on every account? If not were down to less than 12.5% normal exp because they cant base (or job) exp only on their Bounties AND they miss the 50% exp from VIP which a 3xBM stacks. Again, during a 2x exp event.
4. All those clients.. trust me it's not fun, one account dies and it take 5min just to find it.. then another dies while you look.. best bet is to just leave it. Oh but then you have do that bounty run all over again for the ones that you lost. then warp them out and click the bounty board on 15 accounts. Not fun at all, lots of dead time on this one.. I'd say were down to 5%exp.. but ill be nice and just look the other way.
5. The booster event active now gives you a steam starter ring, (An accessory that gives "+101% exp.. -1% every base level".) That along with ALL other EXP gear you could have on.. get this.. JUST 1 account!! is all rendered useless when you just do bounty turn ins. Cool huh?
6. You can actually get 300%+ from gear, which during a exp event that's 200% exp.. makes it 200x3=600%. Now with VIP's 50% that makes it 250x3=750 add a 3xbm and that's 1050% exp.Yes, this is with the the steam ring which does go down as you level.
(6.5) So lets be nice and call it 750% exp shall we? 750 / (at best) 10% normal exp from how they decided to level = 75 accounts they have to use at the same time to be back to normal. Feel free to check my math on this one.
Oh but wait.. lets take some of my math out and call it 100%!! *whew* Now they are back to normal just cause we're being nice. Let's check the math again.. 750/100=7.5.
Ok awesome, so they have to run 9 accounts at the same time in order to be right back to.. *drum roll please* exactly normal. Now all we got to do is look the other way when it takes them 1 hour to set up, 30min to turn in and countless reruns because one of their accounts died before they could teleport.
So remember kids, the next time you see someone with 20 account following them.. just ^.^ and go about your business.
