    Hi everyone.

    As most of you may know, the ghost ship was nerfed in the last patch. It saddens me that this change only impairs those who can't 1-hit the mobs, myself included. Seems to me like a weird decision, since it only affects low-level players who are mostly training or leeching themselves that wouldn't be able to sell leech effectively there. It is actually an incentive to buy leech since I can no longer leech myself.

    Still, I won't blame the staff because they have so many conflicting things to manage, and we all make mistakes, so I hope this will be further upgraded or removed in the next patch.

    Context aside, I am looking for alternatives to train my lv78 priest together with my lv53 spearman, with an epm similar to what I would get at gs1 and later gs2. Any suggestion is appreciated.

    Were you multiclienting before? Priest on stairs and spearman training on the other side, or were you just letting the spearman leecH?

    I think you can still do what you were doing before except do a split via top / bottom instead of horizontally.

    If you were just letting the spearman leech, you can buy auto hp / mp on it and just let it wander around / put it in a corner.

    Can work well with door. I might share the epm later.

    Mp3 on lv53?

    Could you please expand on that? Would that be effective with just one pc?

    It will be tough finding an alternative training map with a similar epm. The mobs, Pac Pinky and Slimy are weak against Holy, making it easier for cleric/priests to kill thus rendering a good epm for the party.

    If you are looking for alternative mobs, I'll say peach monkeys. The peach farms are great alternative maps for leeching characters at that level range. The spawns are pretty decent as well. However, there's no guarantee that the epm will be comparable to GS2 pre-nerf.

    I just realized that the title is misleading, sorry. I was actually in gs1.

    I may share the epm there as well, for comparison. Thank you.

    Why is gs reduced epm? If you were relying on the stairs you were already getting lower eph than actively grinding.

    Yeah, but I was getting decent exp for both characters, which is still faster than the sum of time actively grinding with each one.

    Leech EPH comparison:
    • Monkey Swamp III - 250k/h
    • Forest of Dead Trees III - *
    • Peach Farm I - *
    *don't think there's any need to test since the massive difference

    Alternative methods on gs1:
    • Normal method- 550k/h
    • Akash's method with macro - 710k/h (almost +30%)

    What exactly did the new changes affect? You were presumably keeping them on the same map so that you could get hs exp bonus. You were presumably keeping one on the stairs and one attacking on either the top or bottom platform, which is already inefficient because you should be attacking centralized to spawn for each platform. The changes shouldn’t affect the optimal strategy of clearing both top and bottom platform with each, as Akash mentioned. Just set heal macro on priest and focus on your spearman since he’s the weaker of the two.

    So, that's what was missing: Using macro. I will try macroing both and share the eph.

    So, I guess the case is solved. I was actually leeching the wrong way and learned the most efficient one.
    Thanks for all the replies.

    Try mp3 and put your spearmen on the bottom and your cleric clears top 2 platforms. It'll be more tedious than gs1 for sure but I think the exp would compensate for that. The easier route would be to swap places with priest being on the taxi. I remember getting 2m+ eph on my priest while duoing at mp3 but that was with an active mage.
