Well wouldn't you recommend leveling old style? I played before but I never got in touch with BST so I don't really have any experience with it like the other jobs. It would be nice though to get to 99 fast. Not really sure how I should exp. Did my first GoV the other night and went from 10 - 37 in one day. Never imagined it would be that effective xD
Its all a matter of preference and play style. Sometimes its fun to slowly level solo. I did my drg from 21 to 39 solo in about 4 hours and it ws fun and relaxing. I think solo vs T+ mobs will give you a much stronger grasp of the job, and you pay more attention when you risk DEATH so much.
Sometimes, though I want to get the job leveled up and equipped as quickly as possible because I want that job for a specific purpose.
or sometimes you get stuck in a hole. you level to a certain point and you don't feel like playing that pacew/ the job. or yo ustop and do quests or maybe not.
Frankly, I highly recommend doing Djinn in Vunkerl Inlet S around level 63+.
It was most fun duo, imo, but solo works also.
Its high-risk, high-reward xp. send the crab or fish to tank the djinn, and you sit at max casting range spamming the weakest elemental magic you can. /rdm and /sch work best. when you hit them w/ elemental magic matching the day of the week, they get 100% TP and they are likely to explode. if you take hate, they will chase you and blow you up, if you walk the line just right, you cash in on xp.
for bombs I would keep a /mage for melee in other camps I would go /dnc when higher than level 30. below level 30, I loved /blu best
but most don't take the time to get /blu prepared for it. Edited, Sep 7th 2012 10:46am by Xilk
