Tips and Tricks to jLvl 50? [Classic]
Posted 08 July 2012 - 10:47 AM
So I know I may get quite a bit of flaming on this thread, so I ask now- please take it easy.
A lot of the Ragnarok playerbase has no trouble job changing as soon as they are able to- Right at job level 40. This thread is not for you guys.
Job leveling gets extremely slow around job level 30- and it's all a downhill slope from there. I read in a forum today that it takes over 4 times the experience to get your last ten job levels than it took to get the first 40 combined. Pretty daunting. So daunting that lots of players just quit around that area- as the game doesn't really get interesting again until the job change.
I've browsed all over the internet for several different classes- and I've yet to find a comprehensive guide on how to reach job level 50 on your first job. Now I've found a couple of leveling guides- but they all fail to really discuss that all-important gap.
So to those of you who made it all the way to job level 50 before changing: How'd you do it? Any tips? Best leveling spots? Go for high risk leveling or stay in a spot where you die less and kill consistently? Tell us all about it :3

I'd say make a pure PvM character in which most of it's gears can transfer over to your other pvp/woe character. At least that's what I'm doing.
Also take advantage of vending overnight for zeny. Aswell as Max DC/OC.
For the job 40-50 part I'm at job45 right now and it's all about the grind. Find at least 2 maps which are near the same(exp/drop-wise) and switch back and fourth to avoid getting too bored.
Too bad there's no Job Bm's for sale or i'd be taking a box

As an Acolyte from Job 40-50 I went to Stings with an Archer as much as I could.
As a Mage you can get job 35~50 in Clock Tower just killing clocks.

Mages will also have it easier once Einbroch is released, since a very good Geographer map will be released. A lot of people will be leeching off archers and mages on this map to job 50 as well.
Best I've found right now is to leech myself in stings/prisons. I'm going a little slower than other people, but at the same time I have 3 second class characters instead of 1 by leeching two characters to job 50 off of a sage I've already job changed.

I went for a high risk high reward leveling route with mage solo alarms. Even though it wasn't boring, it certainly was frustrating as I die all the time and in the end it might not have been worth while..
So for archer I went for the safer route going from hode to toy factory. The main benefit of farming in a safe spot is that you can multitask as you play, eg. watching TV while playing etc..
Lastly, don't get too excited for job change. Chances are, you will stay where you were before the job change and continue leveling there for the next few levels. Overall I feel like there just isn't enough leveling locations for high lvls at this particular patch. I'd imagine leveling will be much easier once more areas are open up on the map. Until then, make it safe and steady. GL

Not on any leveling guides for some reason, but Pyramid 3 is the greatest thing that ever happened to me. First time since the beginning since I've been getting 1%+ exp for job. So good!

Spores -> Wolves -> Myst/Skel Workers (alt: Toy Factory but its too crowded there.. no one at Skel workers ) -> Kobolds
About to turn Job 50.

In addition to those, Mages and Archers get Clock Tower which is a MASSIVE advantage that melee characters don't have.
Acos get glast heim
Don't just go by where everyone is, go out into the world, if you think there's only 1 map to level on that means you haven't even tried other places.

High orcs partys are some of the best exp. Grinding on low level monster is just not feasible unless your a high dps class such as mage/archer... maybe even a aco if your ballzie.

For Archers/High Archers or other distance fighters Greatest Generals are good on the map below the elder willows to the right of payon with Savages or Savage and Maneater Blossoms.
Manuks and Boguns are good but if like me you are trying to lvl an archer with crappy hp and little to no weight you need to keep running back and forth for pots unless your willing to sit and wait for hp/sp renewal while hoping no monsters appear Better Exp than Sohees
