    Hi,

    It's been a while since I started my previous journal thread. It contains many characters and different approaches to leveling them, but sadly I lost interest in most of them. When pondering whether I even felt like continuing to journal at all, I decided that I would try to think of a format that will hopefully be slightly less intense and more laid back. There were also some changes to the formatting of posts I wanted to make, thus starting a new journal thread seems justified.

    In short, in this journal I want to focus more on questing/card hunting and having a good time rather than powerleveling. I have previously mostly just hammered through levels playing as efficiently as one can with high base INT. Now going to be slowing things down a bit and enjoy the road more, hopefully ~

    - Make a Marksman
    - Complete all quests (or as many as possible)
    - Fill out the monster book
    - HP wash to 19k hp clean
    - No funding from other characters
    - No starting NX (mostly just because I didn't have any anyway kek)
    - Level without leeching
    - Limit mules to SI/owl mules

    Originally I was only using an owl mule, but playing a crossbowman with SI makes me feel like a NL, while the slow shooting they usually would do is just meh. I was seriously surprised at how much of a difference SI makes in the 'feeling' of the class. Since I already have a lvl 126 bucc, I figured I'd just use that to SI myself during this adventure ~

    I'm literally doing the same as you ATM (19K MM) will be fully washed in May. Currently on a 1-2 months break but you can add Robinn if you'd like.

    Spent too much time playing last night, had fun though. Ended up going to bed late there were GM buffs at 2 am, so I couldn't pass up on that opportunity as an int archer to get some easy questing done. Need to start making some mesos to buy a maple crow.
    Side note: might be scratching the "complete all quests" goal as I recently found out that there is a large number of quests that can only be completed by PQing. I really really really really really don't like PQing. Between the insane difficulty finding a party as the server has matured/less new players currently and the poor rewards, its just not my cup of tea. Also, I somewhat forgot how incredibly pointless some quests are (they are sometimes just a great waste of time with little to no result). Might still try to do a couple quests here and there. We'll see :)

    Especially happy with the 7/7 pet equip speed 60% scrolls passing. Movement speed is so important on low leveled archers as you can move out of whack range more easily ~

    FM has felt a bit slow last couple of days, even when putting scrolls in my shop at underpriced prices they still won't really sell fast. Have been owling and then going below cheapest, but idk.

    - finishing more ariant and magatia quests (defeat deo and cape ones)
    - hunted some deo, finished the card set
    - card hunting at victoria island, almost completed red book
    - more quests around victoria island / omega sector
    - collected materials to get married to EdannEdann again tomorrow, can then finally start APQing and getting some appos. Been saving my NX for that :D

    Mainly just APQ'ed a bunch, got one appo in 4 runs so we'll probably get some more soon ~
    APQ is actually like 25~35% exp at lvl 43 (include key hunting after) so maybe I'll just spam APQ for a bit and level a bit that way lmao.
    Been adding a bit more dex cause my damage was rather atrocious.

    I boomed two Maple Crossbows before this one, cost me about 8m or so. Then bought this one for 7m and landed a 30% on it and 4/6 60% scrolls. Its pretty nice, not sure if I want to try and upgrade it further as it'll only have to last me until lvl 64 anyway. It was 60 att (average) clean so that wasnt amazing.

    Did so much card farming. Still haven't made my mind up how to approach that. On the one hand, card farming on low level mobs now actually still yields some significant exp (although its by no means very fast), but the downside is I don't one-shot everything and not having Arrow Eruption yet means walking around a bunch to get out of whack range. Not really sure whether I should wait for Arrow Eruption to get more cards or not. Anyways, after lots of struggling (mostly at wooden/rocky masks, they hated me) I got my tier 1 ring!

    And I OOP-
    Yeah... I'm not sure why but I got really quite bored of playing my crossbowman. I think my main motivation for making the class was so I would not end up with this severly gimped character at 120+, due to remaining base INT and AP stuck in MP for MP washing. The lure of snipe's solid 2.4m dpm without any funding or notable damage ranged seduced me. Anyway, the sad journey of floris' road to Lord Sniper was short lived.

    However, we are back and bigger and better than ever! I have given in to the dark side which is the art of bullets and firearms. I decided to make a gunslinger. Now I hear you thinking "but Floris, you have a perfectly good lvl 123 corsair!". Why yes, yes I do. However. And to me this is a big however, I leeched that corsair from about lvl 100 to 123. Now it has always been my masochistic, self fucking over goal to level a character without leeching. I mostly leeched then because I was leveling alongside my priest friend who wanted to just blast through and become a bishop. Anyhow, I have since noticed that I end up severly despising my leeched characters, as it does not seem like a personal 'accomplishment'. Call me crazy, it be like that. We gonna do this ourselves now.

    Thus we are back on the noble, rotten grind that is washing a ranged attacker to 19k HP whilst also not leeching. Lets fucking go!
    I for one am very excited about this. We thinking long term now bois, lets be weak as shit until 160+ and own that! No snipe easy way out, just pure suffering for the eternity of time ~

    - Got a white scroll and started looking for gear, see next section
    - Started ariant quests

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Green Bamboo Hat bought for 99k, just to give a little extra dex
    Supreme King Fishing Flag bought for 7m
    Single Earring bought for 35m
    Pistol scrolled by using 9 gun for att 10%s, then finished with 60s
    Silver Strap Shoes bought for 400k
    Bathrobe for Men scrolled myself, bought about 8 overall dex 10%s, for about 300k each. Then landed one and hit the 30% after I bought for 4m. Not the greatest luck on the 60s, but its a solid overall until I get a pirate overall later on! I find that scrolling these things generally turns out cheaper than buying dex bathrobes in the FM.
    Old Raggedy Cape from the quest, landed 3 70% scrolls, then 1/2 60%s
    Green Mittens bought for 96m, very excited to finally have my hands on a glove that has more than 10 attack
    Silver Deputy Star bought for 23m
    Pink Gaia Cape bought for 12m

    Phew, that was a bunch. I made sure to keep some spare mesos (~30m) to buy some maple guns / a zhelm!

    Finally found a cheap Maple Gun, was 3m clean with 40 attack (max clean). Didn't dare to 30% it so just 5/7 60% scrolls.
    I also spent 20m on buying a perfect (65 att) clean Maple Canon Shooter, landed the first 30%, failed the next and then boomed. Oops. Shouldve just 60%ed after the first 30 landed, but since I wont be 64 for another bit I figured I would take the risk.

    flit be lucky as hell y'all. 5 gach tickets on this char, one ws one cs ur boi is LOADED.

    Activities
    - 3x APQ, 2 apples
    - Quests around omega sector / ludi
    - Did both shoe jump 30% quests
    - Drumming bunny quest in omega gave me overall int 60%
    - Grinded for ~20 mins at Master Chronos

    I currently have the accuracy to go spam invisible shot at the GS2 stairs, but my damage is still rather weak as my IS is just lvl 6 atm. Maybe once I hit 43 and hopefully finally find a decently priced Maple Storm Pistol.

    Gear upgrades

    Bought two sets of Armor-Piercing Bullets for about 68m total. I figured its an easy way to gain some nice attack when I hit lvl 50.
    Otherwise I'm probably saving most of the mesos to buy a maple canon shooter / pirate overall / concerto later

    Final screenshot

    Next goals
    - get to lvl 50
    - APQ 3 times a day
    - buy a lvl 43 and 64 maple gun
    - get a zhelm

    Lots of studying for exams, went to uni and studied with a friend ~

    I hope you have a good day today! <3
