Default P#5: Day 186, 67 TCs, 206:30 hrs farming, 100.00%.



Here is my data logged for my 5th pilgrimage.

I hope this data is helpful for future pilgrims to give a sense of what it will take. It's a marathon. Plan accordingly. I planned and took healthy breaks. In addition, I made it a point to resource after stat level gains or arena matches just to keep a mix of things to do. Selling off my t30 resources helped enormously to minimize dipping into my TC reserves.

I did this final pilgrimage as a 1st class Adventurer, 2nd class Wizard and caster build. I had an experience helmet (Aliangel) along with a 4-piece suite of Raiden sleeves and leggings to start off with basically 100 stat levels in magic. Adding a stockpile of r5 Pilgrim potions, I navigated the four main stats as followed:

Melee 1-49. Recovery 1-49. Magic 1-49.
Melee 50-89. Recovery 50-89. Magic 50-89.
Recovery 90-93.
Then all of Defense 1-89.

I made it a point to push through my final hell stat level of 89-90 and on to 93 while my experience gains were still consistently high. The rationale is that you want to aim for the target 360 total stat levels via path-of-least-insanity. This meant only enduring ONE hell stat level of 89.

When in character levels 87-88-89, you are going to change zones. This means the rhythm of your fights change with regards to length (slightly longer) and experience gains (slightly lower).

I think the only piece of information that needs explaining is the percentage data and how I arrived at it. Using the experience tables, it's easy to manipulate a spreadsheet to give you cumulative totals.

The cumulative total experience for a 90.90.90.90 stat level spread is 702,485,600 exp. (with four 89-90 hell stat levels)

The cumulative total experience for an 89.89.89.93 stat level spread is 684,518,700 exp. (just one 89-90 hell stat level)

It's a simple formula of "current cumulative exp/684,518,700 exp"

And here is my data.

:{ not trying to offend brother or anything but as a note for most people.

While 89 89 89 93 was faster for brother. in most cases it won't be faster. because while the overall exp will be higher. rather than adventurer's +3% -3% +3% -3% it's more like +20% -20% +15% -15% or some such depending on your class. so rather than total exp when planning your final stats figure out how much exp it is for each level. then do 1 fight in each skill to see your exact exp and divide the total exp required by that exp to see which ones have the least number of fights to finish. if 93 melee is less fights than 87 magic. check 94 melee. and so on.

aside from that.
206:30 rl hours is 1239 hours of rested time. adventurer primary and staff dd is not the fastest thing for farming level 90+ bosses so if you're other builds you can probably knock quite a bit of time off this.
tsurguyb's pilgrim took about 800-850 hours of rested time as double cast dot (with some group farming with another dcdot)
