What do you normally do while training skills?
Hello everyone! I'm new to the forums here and just being curious, what do you do to get your mind off of training skills? Because it feels like training some skills to R1 is taking forever and its kinda driving me crazy.
Best thing is knowing when to take a break. Burnout can really discourage you from resuming training later
I watched an entire show beginning to end while mastering support shot x_x shooting a zombie over and over and ovER AND OVER....
Like music, youtube, Netflix, or something.
Though I usually ended up waiting for skill training events before I even bothered.
And even then, I'd occasionally get tired of training and take a break to actually watch what I was listening to.
Unless I'm desperate, like the past mission point event.
Either way I talk with my friend, a bit less boring.
I contemplated my life decisions, questioning why I would train ninja from 5am to 2:30pm with less than 4 hours of sleep and with a cold without any breaks. :U
When I train now,
I sleep during those long skill cool downs or when you gotta wait for the 20 stacks of materials in weaving to finish while listening to jazz.
I would put on loud music and completely mute mabi while running dungeons and stuff while yelling things at the screen
I calculate the counts in my head and go from there.
So say if I need to kill something 500 times. I will maybe kill 150 things, stop and take a small break, come back 10 minutes later and repeat.
if it needs a mindless keypress I'll put mabi on my other PC that is on my desk, and press the keyboard on the ground while I play another game, or watch videos, and check back now and then to see if I can rank it.
Most importantly, set attainable goals so you don't feel like you didn't do anything if you don't manage to completely master or rank a skill. If you have only a set amount of time to do something, for example, try to meet one set of requirements for that training you're working on, and if you meet that, continue from there. I found that helped me with Engineering and Magic Craft.
Don't forget to take breaks.
Jokes asides, I talk with people, and share my grief, specially with people that already did it. And with people that didn't do it yet too.
I also tend to listen to music, sometimes.
