Exploration Leveling Guide

Post  cassa on 05/03/15, 01:06 am

This is a guide for sketching the Arch Lich.  The sketch quest for the Arch Lich gives a LOT of exploration experience so I thought I'd make a quick little guide for those that didn't know the best way to do this.

The Math:
With no exploration mastery - 21,440 exp per quest completed (including sketch exp)
With rank 1 exploration mastery - 32,312 exp per quest completed (including sketch exp)

Which means on M,W,F for maximum sketches per in-game night you net:
128,640-193,872 exp and it takes 9 minutes.
On Sunday:
150,080 - 226,184 for 11 minutes.

To go from level 1 to level 50 exploration you need a total of 1,347,500 exploration experience.

Arch Lich Spawns Times/Dates:
*Times are in-game times.
Sunday 8PM - 6AM
Monday, Wednesday and Friday 12AM - 6AM

Things You Need:
-A skill that allows you to drop aggro (Crisis Escape, Shadow Cloak, Elf Hide - Shadow Cloak and Elf Hide work the best as you can run away from the monsters)
-A fast mount
-A pet that will freeze enemies and prevent them from attacking (Ice Dragon, Nimbus)
-Wings of Goddess (The amount depends the day and how quickly you can get back to Metus with the quest).

Please Note:  You must sketch an Arch Lich in a channel you have not already done so in.  Sketching has a cool-down of 90 seconds so watch that it's ready to use again before you rush in to sketch after already having sketched him.  This also means that at most you can get 6 sketches in on M,W,F and 7 in on Sun.

Additionally:  Remain party-less while doing this or you'll have an additional step when trying to use the wings of goddess which could prove dangerous as the monsters multi-aggro very quickly.  If you hold down ctrl and click on the wing it will automatically use it - no right clicking required.

Steps:
1>Grab the "Darkness Hoarding Lich" quest under the sketch tab close to the bottom of the list on the quest board.
1>Head over to the Metus Mana Tunnel and enter Metus
2>(Optional) Use March Song
3>Ride up to Arch Lich once the time for it to spawn hits, de-summon your mount and immediately start sketching the Lich then quickly summon your freezing pet
4>Once finished sketching use your drop aggro skill
5>Use Wings of Goddess to get back to Quilla instantly
6>Visit Quest Board
7>Complete Quest
8>Change Channel (to one you haven't been in).
9>Repeat

Video showing the above steps is below!  Sorry there's no voice commentary but my headset doesn't work.



Happy Exploring!

Or if you're a cheap whore like me, you'll KS every single Desert Dragon during the weekdays and steal all the EXP from Active nerds.

Amazing, the next time I'm on I will use this!

Honestly, I had no idea the best method for leveling exploration anymore, since I literally haven't dealt exploration since 2011. Can not remember the last time I even went to Iria ^^

You saved my future self from wasting time rafting, or hot air ballooning, or elf collecting ;D

You can also lure lich out with something like a bow- and use lullaby to put him to sleep.

Support Shot with master title always useful. Always. Useful.

until everyone just uses guns and then pew pew everything dies.

Have yet to try this out myself, it's on my to do list. But with most the NX going towards not statues, I do need a source of exploration exp.
