I want 6 months before I get to Level 80

Postby J1st » Wed Aug 29, 2018 5:36 am

Yup, that is my wish. I want to enjoy these new levels. I applaud everyone that wants to level up, but I don't. I want to take my time and smell the flowers as they say. Any clues or suggestions to achieve this goal would be appreciated. And I think others might be interested in this approach as well. What can we do to slow down the increase that we know is coming... Remember the song by the Red Rocket...Sammy Hagar, I can't drive 55? We'll I don't want to drive 80, at least not for a while.

You ain't kidding it took them this long just to get us 5 lvls. Close to a year. It was in late November or early December that we ran out of lvls and storytime. My kids kept asking me anything new.? :D

Nope nothing new, would be my answer just TF after TF after RF.

If I was trying not to level up, I’d do the opposite of what I do when I try to level up :P ... which would be not feeding any pets (mine or others) or event items; not playing on Sundays (or whenever they offer extra xp); only fulfilling trades that give me something I really need (like doubloons, pearls, gems) and maybe just focusing on events (though keep in mind that you get a lot of extra xp from feeding gathering event items)
I think, if you play on a daily basis, it’d be quite challenging not to get to level 80 before six months. Might be interesting to see how you manage ;)

spaceinvader makes some really good points. you could go further and delete trades that include high value items as it's a double whammy, you get high xp for selling and again when you restock. i would suggest trying to buy high value items instead of making them, but with wm as it is that's not practical. for those who have feeder islands it's easier to sell stuff between them and avoid xp on the main one.

ghost ship cove chests sometimes give xp instead of hearts, so watch out for that too.

good luck! :D

Same here, that's my wish too. Unfortunately that is not going to happen if you are a daily player, no matter how little you play.

I have done very few TP and boat trades and feed only pets that give rewards I want and yet, I am already at lvl 77 :cry:

That’s sort of how I played the 70-75 increases but somewhere in the middle of 73 I got bored with it and resumed normal play. That’s about the point when I began to wonder if PB might actually release even more levels before I got to 75 and wanted to make sure there was time to rebuild my prestige bank.

Two things you can stop that affect xp only are wildlife tapping and collecting the first two items from Sunshine Chalkenge.

Ignore TP orders except as needed for storyline or for Jasper / builder progress.

I try not to play on bonus xp days, don't feed my pets as much, don't do Trade post orders ( except for Tradefest), use the WM to gain gold without xp, don't collect SSC that give us xp, and unfortunately....try to play a bit less since using our Mills gives us xp too.

The Mills we can't control the xp we get from them, all we can do is make what really need.

The tricky part is that most things give xp plus coins or xp plus stuff or xp plus karma, so there is a balance we need to find between avoiding xp and actually still playing the game.

This one’s really going to hurt, Jerry, especially for you, but we get a ton of xp from feeding other players pets. Feeding friendlies to a pet gets over 200 xp. (It doesn’t matter if the pet is rank 1,2 or 3, they all seem to give around 220 xp.) Feed 5 pets, that’s about 1100 xp.

I’m waiting to see how long you can hold out on that one. We’ll look forward to next February when everybody gets one of your pet carpet bombings.

I am on a go slow as well Jerry. So far so good. I'm not sure it will take me 6 months but I intend to take it really easy. And I have pledged to not do any tradepost orders at all, unless it is for an event where it is required. All TF TO requests are being deleted.
