Are you stacking any buffs? Not sure what buffs you mean. The only buffs I have are totem and barkskinMost people don't actually stay in Newton at 15+, tbh. At your level, you could be hunting oozes in the forest, collecting bards, pilgrims, and scholars on the road, hunting in groups with bigger people, and so on.I have looked for the oozes never find them. Bards and scholars only give gold or its such a minimal exp gain I never notice it when I qsc, No clue where to even find pilgrimslet alone where to take them. As for group hunting... there is usually no one one when I am.
Asani and Tarkenton just introduced me to influencing.. holy crap the exp from that is insane.
Just hunted/influenced newton for 1 hours- to gain 1 level (currently 27)... That much grind this early on is kind of a big turn off. Especially as I know to go from level 99-100 takes the same amount of experience as it does to go from 1 to 99. Honestly I don't mind a grind.. but to have the grind this extreme this early is ridiculous. I tried hunting non newton areas rather unsuccessfully I might add. Quests (at least early ones) seem to only have gold as a reward..Going to sleep on it if its worth trying to stick around for. I mean the few rp moments I got to have were a ton of fun.. But They are so few and far between that it does not mask the fact that I'm already having to grind. Which could be the reason new play retention is so low. Its not that its hard but there is an amount of tediousness that is overbearing and I think Lusternia is on that line if it has not already crossed it.
Ah.. I just assumed there was some other factor I was not aware of that could cuase them to lose you
Just had a ninja newbie quit because the Magnagoran power quest was 'too hard'. Tried to explain that hunting specters was hard for her level, that the quest taught you to ask for help, and that it is not her fault she can't do it by herself. To which she replied 'then the collegium shouldn't ask me to do it.'I'm not sure what else I could have done.
Hallifax people sometimes need help killing the joules, depending on the level they do their collegium stuff and (I presume, been ages since I helped someone with it) if they rejected grace or not. Most people do it late enough that they're fine, though, so I don't know exactly how it compares to Mag's for difficulty.
We can't tell them that?
