Default Exp Progression a Bit Slower Than Usual?

Is the EXP speed from 1-5 as intended? It seems a bit slower than normal.

I remember leveling from 1-2 rather quickly in original EQ and then getting up to level 5 in less than 2 hours.

If it's as intended, have at it. I was just curious. Lots of deaths in the noob area in Akanon. I mean a LOT. I think some don't know they can loot their corpses and get their stuff back.

Nah, it took like 8+ hours to do it back in the past.

Part of the reason you see so many gnome corpses is people get the idea that mages are very powerful. So off to whatever city they desire (Ak Anon in this case) and make a shiny new mage. Lo and behold, mages don't get a pet until level 4. Level 1 is pretty easy, just kill even con's.

Level 2/3 with no pet takes forever. There's coyotes that'll kill you fast. Wandering skeleton (the level 6 one, not the level 1 decaying ones) plus that dam troll make life pretty crappy. Chances of getting a kobold camp group is very low until level 4; they're yellow and red con's so you're not landing a nuke on them anyway.

So after 5 hours of playing you've finally managed to ding level 3, looted every corpse up to now. Just as you're about to finish off a kobold runt that dam skeleton wanders by killing you.

OH FFS! Gnome mages suck! Leave the corpse, delete the toon and go make a DE necro! They rock.

1-5 is brutal unless you have an alt to buy exp turn ins.

In classic EQ there was a newbie ZEM from levels 1-6 no matter your zone. You got 100 zem instead of the standard 75 or whatever.

I only just rediscovered this so it doesn't exist yet on p99 but it should.

Back in the day were newbie mobs respawning in 2 minutes or did they have the same respawn as regular outdoor zones (6~min)?

Mobs were linked in groups of 3's that would repop all three at once when they all died. P99 can't replicate that (yet) so Brogean made them spawn faster.

At level 1, kill even cons
At level 2, kill fire beetles and decaying skeletons only
At level 3, focus on fire beetles or other level 2's
At level 4, focus on any potential level 3-4 mobs like large bats, and fill it in with fire beetles.

Don't stick to only level 1's at level 2-4 thats where people don't think of the experience formula per level they are too focused on the con color

It's a good post. If you've got a pet it really helps even if they're stealing half the XP.
