I had a dream the other day. My smith told me to pay on classic. Despite me not wanting to start over again.

Went digging through old Screenshots of my Pre-Renewal Smith.
Found this.


I think this time around I will swap Agi for Vit.

Who here is leveling their merchant all the way to j50 without being leeched?! I wanna see some smith pride in this thread. (j41 and counting! I'll hit smith in a year, see you guys then. :()

Also trying a vit build instead of agi right off the get-go. Merchant medals spoiled me hard so I might rage-quit around level 70. Fun stuff.

I understand your pain mate. Just a suggestion, go Cart Revolution spammage in Geffen Dungeon lv 1. Although the exp per monster is trash, it's astonishing to see the exp per hour. Tried and tested. :cool:

Do lemme know how it goes.

Is going vit better than agi? I figured since I was mostly going to PvE I should pump agi instead, but my merchant is only 38. Should I remake it? D:

Agi is faster earlier on but vit is faster later on. Agi is also nice if you're poor while vit can cost a lot of money in HP/SP pots. Smiths can't flee to save their lives so I only recommend an agi build for the aspd. You'd probably really enjoy a hybrid build. If you're just going to PvE, you don't need nearly as much dex as other melee classes, so you could throw your extra points from that into agi or vit to round off your build.

But if you get any less than 99 base str we're going to have a talking to. :stir:

Wondering how good are killing wolves until? Using a STR/VIT/DEX build for the merchant. What comes after wolves? I'm using the Episilon axe.

Looking at the database, wolves give more xp/jxp than orc zombies/orc skeletons? o.O

Wolf: 329/199
Orc Zombie: 196/120
Orc Skeleton: 315/194

Wolves also have less HP than both, but the Orc Dungeon map is a lot more densely populated and allows for very mobby situations, which is great for Cart Revolution.

I lvl’d at wolves until I was about 40. I went to poison spores until 45.
  I’ve been at OD1 since. I am now 56/42. I’ll probably grind there until job 50.
If you tale the time to loot, you should be able to make the money back on pots.

  I found two emps which will help funds once I sell them.

OK, I guess Wolves it is for me until I get Cart Revolution up.
