I was finally able to reach level 120 yesterday without leech. :) It took 11 - 12 days since the release day at night on Thursday December 10th. Because it was released during the weeks I was still in school (before holiday break), I wasn't able to play as much. Also, If you all didn't know, Nexon changed the Party exp system (leecher gains only 20% exp I think) to prevent leeching, so leeching is much MUCH slower than training now. I'll try to break it down as to how I reached lvl 120.
My holiday break had not started until December 19th, so I was in school and busy before that date. During each of those days, I played about only 3 -4 hrs (which were mostly the times of my 2x exp time slots). Since I had school covering my morning and afternoon, I usually played from 7pm - 11pm before I went to bed. On the first day (or first night since Aran was released 4 hrs before midnight xD), I reached around lvl 40. And the following days before I reached lvl 120, I gained around 7 - 9 levels each day during the 4 hr training, except the last two days which I had only gained 3 -4 levels each time. For those who are wondering how I was able to gain 7 -9 levels every 4 hrs of each day, it was because I was using 4x exp 90% of the time. Some of those times were during 2x event, so I didn't have to use my family reps, just my 2x exp card. I also had a bishop to give me holy symbol while I was training. Also, during the whole time, I was training with Witch's stew (40 attk) or other attack pots that added 20 or 30 attk. On certain occasions, I trained with Onyx Apples (100 attk). With 4x exp & holy symbol, it took about 15 - 30 mins per level depending on which attack pot I was using and how fast I was killing.
To answer those who keep asking about why I'm so "rich." I've been playing for 4 years, so I've collected and saved up a lot of items. For the most part, I barely have any money, I always invest them in certain items. I usually make my money by doing APQ (Amoria Party Quest) to obtain onyx apples to sell (each selling for around 3 - 5 mil). As for the NX, I DO NOT buy nx, the last time I bought nx was probably last year during the summer of 2008. I am only 17 years old, so I don't have a job nor do my parents give me an allowance, so that means no money for nx. How do I get nx then? Well I use something call the MTS (that little green button on the bottom of your screen next to the Cash shop). Every bit of my nx I use comes from there. I'm pretty good at marketing so I'm able to make enough nx for my 2x exp cards. The safety charms, VIP rocks, Pet, and weapon covers were all from NEXON. If you sign up for their monthly newsletter, they sometimes send you a code which you can enter in the cash shop and receive NX stuff like 2x exp cards, pets, safety charms, and weapons.
And so thats pretty much my story I guess. =) Hope you enjoy the video. :)
