    Default Any point in returning now if i am level 90 with 230 AA?

    I have been on a hiatus since SR, but would like to play this game again.
    As far as i understand it, to be able to level to 92 right now you need 280 AA, meaning i need to grind out 50 AA to level to 92 to be able to join dungeon groups (i assume people arent interested in bringing a level 90, and/or the newest dungeons having a level requirement of 92?)

    But in 2 weeks or so the new expansion launches, which increases max level to 95, and also gives people an item that grants up to 280 AA to characters that are level 90.

    Am i then better off just waiting for the expansion launch, using that item that grants me up to 280AA, and using all those quests that were added after SF (and the new quests in the expansion) to get AA, rather than "wasting" the quests i havent done now?

    Or am i thinking wrong?

    thinking about just effort and not having a method to pl your character youd probably want to wait. however, its not impossible to reach 320 in a couple days and save that for a second char with much less aa.

    I would'nt use this item for only 50aa since you only got two of those each account, so it would be better to use it when grinding without any aa to 92/95. Also you can grind 50aa really fast, just use a exp potion mentor down and go to palace or sebilis.
    On the internet you can be anything you want. It's strange that so many people choose to be stupid.

    Well that is part of my problem

    For years i have read those threads where people ask how to grind AA, and the replies are along the lines of what you write, using an exp potion and going to grind on something

    Then i try it myself, and the AA gain is so abysmal i just loose interest.
    If i didnt know better id think my character was bugged, but the more likely scenario is that my grind tolerance is fairly low, and/or those people writing that advice have multiple level 90s on their account and get a huge bonus, or that they do it during double exp weekends, or some such.

    Im not really sure what to do. You make a good point that using this item for just 50 AA isnt very efficient, on the other hand i am not much of an alt player so i dont see myself needing many of these items.

    Do you need 280AA to be able to level past 90 once the expansion launches?

    The past 2 weekends have been double xp and you could've easily reached 280 in like a night and not have to worry about it, and yes you need 280 aa to lvl past 90.

    I literally did this yesterday. Chrono mentor down to 65, run poa over and over. Gained 48 AA's in 3 hours. Around 8% aa per kill.

    Edit - Running potion of course

    Wow ok thats ironic.

    Joke is on me i guess.

    Is it realistic to think that they will offer double xp weekend every weekend until the expansion launch?

    Ok this sounds interesting

    So if you got 8% per kill with 100% bonus xp from potion, during double xp weekend, does that mean you get 2% per kill without either, or does +xp% not scale that way?

    lvling up is not the issue, finding s*** to do once max is.

    I honestly have no idea how that works.

    you cant compare xp-gain that way, at least not alone
    maybe laalon has 5 toons 90+, which would give him 100% veteran bonus, its capped at 10 toons (= +200%)

    then you have to look at killspeed(&respawn) vs. xp/kill
    generally spoken, i'd say that all depends on playerskill/equipment and class your on

    yes there are sweet spots to grind - like certain areas in seb, hole, poa - but you gotta find the best one for yourself
    xp-gain is being displayed nowadays, so its not hard to figure that out
    make adjustments on your toon, that favor survival/AOE-killing if possible/necessary

    thats all i'd suggest

    - Scientists have discovered a biochemical link between the overwhelming state of love, drug addiction and violence. These emotions are actually controlled by three very powerful drugs: dopamine, seratonin and adrenaline. -
    - There is a connection between drug addiction, mental illness and love at first sight. -
