    Ohh right, totally forgot about return town scrolls. Guess my train of thoughts had became too nostaglic xD

    Dang, that sword looks really strong ngl.
    However im pretty poor rn so by the time I have mesos for it, I may be already over lvl 30+.

    Currently, im thinking to buy a lionheart from ludi which should last me till level 50. However, after 50, I have no idea what swords to go for, considering that I am very likely to be FM-locked due to lack of mesos to buy a zhelm

    1 point in accuracy is about an 11% hitrate increase on Green Mushrooms and 8% on Blue Mushrooms. Also remember about the Accuracy penalty for being a lower level than the mob you're trying to hit (though in your case, you were equal or above the mobs in level). I always added my base DEX early on Warriors since consistent misses are somewhat tilting.

    Day 3: ~3 hours of grinding and questing.

    Some tips for myself if I ever play this route again: Please don't sell low-level monsters etc away so quickly, especially Slime Bubbles and Pig Ribbon. Alex runaway quest and Mrs. Ming Ming's first worry quest both requires 100 ribbons each.

    By doing as many victoria island quest and zipangu low level quest, it will be possible to hit almost 30. I managed to hit 30 via about 90% quest, and about 10% PQ (3x for level 25 to 26)

    Current Milestone - Finally, a page!!

    Day 3.5: ~2 Hours of grinding and questing I guess? Didn't really keep track.

    Current Status:
    [​IMG]

    Forgot to include mesos, but I have 41,351 mesos right now

    lvl 31-32: +5 STR

    lvl 30: +1 Sword Mastery
    lvl 31-32: +3 Sword Mastery

    I'm not adding booster yet coz I'm still using Pig Illustrated.

    Upcoming Goal:
    - Buy Lionheart

    Things I'm considering:
    Collect Steel Ores, Leathers, Bronze Ore and Black Crystal Ore to create a lvl 40 warrior gloves, that gives +3 STR. https://maplelegends.com/lib/equip?id=1082025 Though, it's probably a better idea to just hunt one from some mobs, or just use my current work glove.

    Did some quest after hitting 2nd job, until lvl 31, with roughly 44% EXP.
    Did Bartol's Request to get wrap cards, and got some eos scrolls from the daily quest. Went 44 floor to buy some scrolls and got scrolled my speed boots.

    [​IMG]

    Grinded on teddies to level up to lvl 32.

    Did 2x @epm 3, and the results are here:
    During lvl 31:
    [​IMG]
    Text:
    Total EXP: 8,960 (8.26%)
    EXP Per Hour: 176,160 - EXP Per Minute: 2,986

    During lvl 32:
    [​IMG]
    Text:
    Total EXP: 8,480 (6.91%)
    EXP Per Hour: 169,560 - EXP Per Minute: 2,826

    Side note:
    I thought imgbb was working fine the other times. seems like all the pictures are cropped into square and thumbnailed for some reason.

    Edit:
    the images works fine in my mobile, guess might be juz a pc thing

    Not sure about your stance on or willingness to do jump quests, but the 2nd Sleepywood JQ (the ones started with John in Lith Harbor) gives you a pair of Level 35 Gloves for your job (so for Warrior, 3 STR Dark Briggon). Might be easier than gathering all those materials for crafting (but I'm extremely biased and find jump quests fun, so maybe not the best person to consult).

    Ohh, i can probably do the JQ, its easier den zak based off memory. Was just kinda lazy to do it :p

    Thanks for the tip, i'll go and get it later on hahah

    Edit: This JQ is considerably easier than zak, so probably shouldn't be seen as an advantage of any sort i guess. But i'll try to hold it till lvl 40 before getting it

    Day 4: ~1/2 hour of grinding and walking around. Didn't have much time to play today.

    Didn't level up, got about 30-40% exp.
    Gear & Stats remains exactly same as yesterday.

    Did epm test at teddies and Orbis Tower Floor 7

    Teddies @epm 3 result, lvl 32:
    [​IMG]
    Text:
    Total EXP: 7,701 (6.27%)
    EXP Per Hour: 154,020 - EXP Per Min: 2,567

    Total EXP: 8,030 (6.54%)
    EXP Per Hour: 160,560 - EXP Per Min: 2,676

    [​IMG]
    Text:
    Total EXP: 10,030 (8.17%)
    EXP Per Hour: 200,580 - EXP Per Min: 3,343

    Orbis Tower Floor 7 @epm3 result, lvl 32:
    Text:
    Total EXP: 6,840 (5.57%)
    EXP Per Hour: 136,800 - EXP Per Min: 2,280

    Some stuffs to note for these epms:
    - Brown Teddies, 0% miss rate.
    - Pink Teddies, occasionally misses.
    - Letty, rarely misses, but it happens sometimes.

    Stuffs that I wanna do:
    - Do 2 more @epm 3 test on Orbis Tower 7th Floor while being level 32.
    - Do at least 2 @epm 3 test in Evil Eye Cave while being level 32.

    Upcoming Goals:
    - Buy Lionheart.
    - Start LPQ at around lvl 40. Collect as many clean capes as I can. These capes will be used to create 10 STR cape and 5 INT cape after I buy my zak helm.

    Any other recommended training grounds? Mainly for testing epms.

    Genin obviously comes to mind for training at around that level. Eos 100th/1st floor for ratz are probably decent too since they're fast and fairly mobby.

    Day 5: ~1 Hour of grinding, and walking around doing epm tests. Managed to level up to 33.

    [​IMG]

    Current goals are still the same:
    - Saving money for a lionheart
    - Start LPQ once reaching about lvl 40, collecting as many clean capes as possible

    lvl 33: +5 STR

    lvl 33: +3 Sword Mastery

    Considering to get 5-7 levels of powerguard before going for booster.
    These mobs are dealing alot of damage, forcing me to use more HP pots.

    Addtional EPM Test

    Day 6: ~2.5ish hours of grinding at teddies. Managed to level up twice, now 35.

    Also great news: managed to buy a lionheart, being broke af after doing so xD

    Current Status
    [​IMG]

    Some observations:
    - Teddies is a decent source of money only if you are able to get NPC and/or forging manuals (the scroll-like stuffs that goes into your etc)
    - NPCing the teddies etc, wisdom ores and dexterity pills only got me enough mesos to buy back the potions I've lost. Before the lionheart, my luck with drops isnt really good. Somehow its better once I got lionheart. Might be due to having a better weapon to kill teddies

    Upcoming Goals:
    - Make more money :(
    - Start LPQ perhaps, or wait afew more levels first.
    - Save up as many clean adventures as I can.

    lvl 34-35: +5 STR

    lvl 34: +3 Threaten
    lvl 35: +3 Power Guard

    What about booster?
    - Saving mesos is the bigger priority for me right now. I'll likely add booster after about 10 levels of Power Guard.

    So, why did you add sword mastery before booster?
    - Pig Illustration provides 10 accuracy. Consider how I still occasionally misses, it will be better to have 10 accuracy back when I use lionheart.
    - Side note: For my case, it may be better to add 3 level of powerguard before adding sword mastery.

    When I leveled to 35, I had these amount of cash:
    [​IMG]

    Thus, I NPCed the Blue Engrit (30k), Red Cross Earring (10k) and 10 Eos Scroll (1k each) to barely scrape enough money for lionheart.
    [​IMG]

    After buying, I only had this 457 mesos left :D
    Although not in screenshot, I have ~20 Hotdog supreme and 0 MP pots. Was lucky later on tho, had 2 forging manual and a 35k equip that dropped later, and had enough to replenish my potions
    [​IMG]

    Overall, meso management is pretty challenging, despite not having INT. The nostalgic factor is definitely there.

    Also, im keeping the pig illustration. Not gonna NPC for 20k

    Day 6.5: Ran 2x LPQ. EXP Increased Rapidly from 19% to 97% in about 25 min, while only spending <20 HP and <20 MP potions

    Current Status did not change, I did not level up.

    LPQ is probably too OP right now, feels as fast, if not faster, than leech.
    While I do wanna cut down on getting carried, I do need the clean capes. Perhaps I'll stop for now, and grind till lvl 40 before I join back. At least I'll be able to contribute more when im lvl 40, and not just wait for luck and get carried.

    Loots from 2x LPQ
    [​IMG]

    2x Adventurer Cape, 1x Justice Cape, 1x Moon Earring, 1x Sapphire Earring
    [​IMG]

    Assorted Potions
    [​IMG]

    Except for elixirs, will likely NPC all the other potions.

    Day 7: About ~45 min of grinding from lvl 36 to 37. Got lazy and participated in multiple LPQs and hit lvl 39.

    Current Observation:
    From lvl 37 onwards, it takes about 3 PQs to hit roughly 90% exp. Still pretty OP when compared to teddies, and its a much better place to start making mesos as I can most likely spend only about 10 Hotdogs and maybe 20 Blue Potions per run. Also sundews and assorted potions have high NPC values, so its important to save slots for them.

    Also, don't be like me. Sell capes if you can, on FM.

    Current Status:
    [​IMG]

    Upcoming Goals:
    - Hit level 40.
    - Update EPM on teddies, and get EPM on burnt land V

    lvl 36-39: +5 STR

    lvl 36: +3 Power Guard
    lvl 37: +3 Power Guard
    lvl 38: +1 Power Guard, +2 Sword Booster
    lvl 39: +2 Sword Mastery, +1 Sword Booster

    Current Earring and Cape collection from LPQ :D
    [​IMG]

    After a long time, completed both John's Flower Jump Quest and got this glove:
    [​IMG]

    Then, went to vega and bought 5x 100% Dex Glove Scrolls:
    [​IMG]

    I haven't scroll the gloves. Right now considering between white work glove or this, tho it doesn't really matter hahah.

    Day 8 & 9: Actually made some progress yesterday, but forgot to journal it. Gonna combine both together.

    Mainly just afking at Eos Tower 101 and join runs whenever opportunity comes.

    The good thing is, LPQ is really OP. The bad thing is, it takes really long to form a party. For some reason, there's a lack of ranged (where's all the NX farmers?).

    Current Status:
    [​IMG]

    lvl 40-41: +5 INT

    HP Washed 5x

    lvl 40: +3 Sword Mastery
    lvl 41: +3 Sword Mastery

    Goals:
    - Stop being lazy and EPM teddies and burnt land V
    - Been around LPQ and somehow still guildless. Probs should start finding a guild rather than waiting for an invitation xDD

    Decided to 5x 100% scroll my lvl 35 glove
    [​IMG]

    Finally started HP Washing, and this is the NX i've collected before buying any resets:

    Day 10: Was too tired to write on that day. I did 2 LPQ runs, gained roughly 50%. and thats about it. Did not level

    Day 11: Even more LPQ runs. Takes about ~4 runs now to level, which at fastest, is roughly 40 minutes. I think thats pretty fair and not OP.

    Going LPQ often actually makes more money than going to Teddies. Who knows, I might spam LPQ until I'm out of lvl 50 range. Its good mesos.
    Still got to at least epm burnt land V tho smfh.

    Also, joined a guild, Munchies. These guys seems way more competent then the casual guild my hero is in ||oTL.
    Nice people too, tho sadly our timezones don't fit well.

    Been loaded with lots of scrolls from LPQ. Did a one-way transfer from this page to my main storage mules. Its a one way trip, these stuffs will not be returned to my page.

    Also, a guildie took a pic while I was afking, and wants to get featured on my journal, so here he comes :D

    10 minute LPQs is very impressive dang. That's going to be way better than grinding especially when you're unfunded.
