Leveling Speed & Frontloading
Hello everyone.

I'd first like to say that frontloading works great, but frontloading is not understood / known by most players.
Getting a skill (that does not have a mastery) to level 30 already makes it have 50% of possible bonus (there's a saying going around "30 is the new 50")

What does suck are:
* slow speed of unlocking abilities
* almost no in-game information on how frontloading works

So, I would like to suggest 3 things:
  • Increase leveling speed for 1-30 range. Allow everyone to easily get to 50% efficiency in their spells/skills
  • Increase leveling speed of Spell Schools - make spells easier to unlock.
  • Explain Frontloading to new players, or at the very least hint at its existance

PS this post/suggestion is about combat abilities and skills, not about crafting. I find crafting too boring and worthless to do on my main.

PS2 while on the subject of spell unlocks, check my previous thread:,8192.0.html

Signatures should unlock at max or lvl with spell school. Also stat grind for mage is aids.

totally agree, I've given up actually playing and just meditating my schools as its faster than grinding and cheaper. So now I'm paying to NOT play a game that I want to play. Very conflicting.

Anyway back on topic, I think schools should be super quick and have a somewhat flat xp gain, so your consistently unlocking spells. For example, max out a school in say a week or two of average play. You still have to level each individual spell and the 4 passives.
Right now, just getting 100 in a school seems like the minimum needed to be 'viable' and that in itself feels like a huge grind or waste of time via meditating.

Immersion of leveling is definitely broken. GG.
