Archives » Leveling, is it really this slow?
Year 11 Day 244 6:45
I started about a week ago, been playing every day, flying and transporting materials from starports to ground bases and I'm still not even halfway to level 2 yet. Does it really take this long to level or am I doing something wrong?

If you're playing normally, then yes, it takes that long to level.

How do you play abnormally?

Well, you could focus your attention only on leveling, but what's the point of that? Experience levels are of little use in this game.

So skillpoints are worthless?

The amount of skillpoints you get per level and the time it takes to level essentially makes it rather worthless beyond minor alterations, yes.

I dont think skill points are worthless, yes it takes a while to lvl up but some skills are important for certain jobs. But its better if you put points into skills at the creation, its hard to improve them later.

Not only skill points are given on Level Up, Health Points are given as well, I don't think additional HP will be useless, when combat comes.

Indeed. However you get way more skill points at the beginning than you would get for a long time levelling up. THis is one of the ways that the inbalance between older players and new ones is fixed. Older players could have higher/more skills but a new player will not be at a serious disadvantage if they set themselves up correctly.

As for HP, yes, but not that much. I think you have to reach maybe lvl 5 before you starting HP is doubled, but not sure on that. In SWC levelling is more of a way to fine tune your character rather than most other games where you continually get exponentially more powerful with each new level.

Daehd, your HP is worthless if I blow up the ship you're flying on with superior space combat skills. :P

Basically, as Ellias said, it's more for specialization than really for maxing out all stats. Make your trooper more elite or your pilot more of an ace rather than a jack of all trades.

No it gets your HP up and more points to assign

1 point per level, so as the others have said, it's more to fine tune (extremely fine tuning) your character, and JOATMON's don't last long in this game
