    I haven't done these two things you mentioned, CP skills I haven't fully rank to R1 is taming, alchemy mastery, clay alchemy, knuckle mastery and mastering hydra. I'll probably finish clay alchemy and knuckle mastery before I go over 1k and I don't really care about taming since it's the most useless skill. For generations, I haven't done G7 and G8 yet, probably gonna skip G7 as I can't find the dang artifacts it wants.

    Alchemy mastery and mastering hydra is my concern. I resetted my skills quite frequently so I didn't focus on mastering since I always reset my training. I have -1000cp gear, how much total level would be considered too high that having a raccoon cub clothes would be useless?

    It seems like you got the important gens out of the way, so I wouldn't worry much about doing 7 and 8 before 1k since neither give any beneficial skills or anything. Also while taming has CP requirements, you can rank up the skill just using the other requirements, like specifically killing hippos. So that I wouldn't consider that a CP skill.

    If you only have a couple CP skills left, I wouldn't sweat it too much. Just prioritize it once you go over 1k. The kitchen dungeon is a great source of awful/boss monsters depending on your CP, and is great for training Hydra just due to their spawn patterns, and otherwise there's always shadow missions. It's hard to say a total that would make it difficult, as it depends more on your CP. If you are finding that you're having trouble even with the raccoon cub, there's tendering potions and other CP gear you could get as well. I used the raccoon cub along with headgear, footwear, and gloves that gave -200 CP each, so it was pretty easy to find a mixture that worked. I did rank Dance of Death after I went over 1k, since I went over before it came out, and didn't have too much trouble, I just had to use SM mobs instead of overworld monsters.

    If u haven't finish g8 yet make sure u Don't kill Crumena...EVER till U r1+master meteor. Best mage title in the game and trust me...RAIDs is the only other options if U wanna master this title. U WILL HATE URSELF 4 LYFE if u don't have spare alts+xtra comp that can spawn g8 Crumena.

    Thankfully I did.

    I was past 1000 total levels before free rebirths, let alone newbie benefits, so it's never mattered to me at all.

    [quote="ShouK;7879"No more rushing in combat because I have 3 nao stones ready to use anytime[/quote]

    How I see it, if I'm in a position where I get knocked down, I probably can't handle that situation. I solo pretty often though. It's kinda like growing up in general. You don't want to be as wasteful, probably opens up more opportunities too. I don't want to get knocked unconsious because it damages my dura and I need to use more Holy Water. I'd rather spam potions than get knocked out.


    I'm not really resetting my skills all the time either. I know my play style, have several characters as I've been here for years too. I guess the training events is a drag if you want to maximize on that, but do you really need to do everything?

    Like I said, it's a lot like growing up in a way. It's how the game is meant to be played. Welcome to the big-league ; )

    We old folks learn to sink or swim by ourselves with no help from Nexon while under a p2w system way more severe than what we have now. We survived. So don't worry bout it. Take the leap.

    Unless you've been using 50% of your ap on ap training (which I still think should be locked until 1k at least) the game should stop babying you at some point.

    Why do you think AP training should be locked until 1k, out of curiosity?

    It was somewhat answered in the post but I'll elaborate.

    Biggest one being is that most of your early strength comes from the skills you upgrade with the very limited amount of ap you get, ap is still a very precious resource even now. I don't care if we're basically on a permanent 3x ap event or if you can get like 150 free ap by ranking production mastery to like rA, you need ap to progress your character and if you're spending it on ap training you're going to end up much weaker than you should be.

    Second reason being is because a legitimate newbie will not know this and may carelessly spend a lot of their starting ap on it and the worst part is they won't be able to get it back, unlike with putting it into a skills they don't want you can never recover spent ap from ap training. If there was a way to screw up your character ap training would be the way to go, you could seriously end up with the power of a ttl 500 at level 1k if a newbie ap trains and resets to train other talents with beginner benefits without knowing that you don't recover ap from ap training. Ap training was meant to be a way for high level players to rank up tedious skills they just don't plain touch but are sitting on literally thousands of ap.

    How has Mabi life changes for you? Do you have any regrets? Possibly things that you should've done before you exceed 1k?

    I have stayed below 1k for around a year already now and I am planning to go over 1k this coming 2x AP weekend, because at the state I am right now, I can't really get any stronger with very limited AP. I'm feeling really nervous about it. No more rushing in combat because I have 3 nao stones ready to use anytime, no more abusing the free resets etc but most importantly, no more travelling places to places in 1 second with the moonbook..

    I've gotten better at the game by using skills that I didn't really use before, like Bash and Mana Shield. I snagged all of the moon gates before I went over, so that was no issue.

    I don't really miss anything from being under 1k. I'm over 5k now and I'm a lot stronger than I used to be. It's easier to be completely honest with you.

    As long as you utilize all of your skills, make friends who are willing to help, and have people behind you, you should be fine. And friends aren't always needed but they're nice to have. I'll even add you in case of questions or if I can help :3

    So I went over 1k today...this really needs some getting used to. I have a habit of opening my ME inventory when I'm going from places to places before realizing that I need to use the moon gate. Had to hover my mouse at every circle on the map because I don't know which is which.And then there's the continent warp cooldown thing. Looks like I need to hoard goddess wings o-o

    Spamming for levels in SM is really slow, so I went to MA but finding parties are really annoying at times, as some people set minimum cumulative level requirement. I may not deal 12134324k damage like old players but I can hold my own and pretty sure I contribute as much or more than players whose total levels higher than me.
