    Yupz, I have 1400 and could add another 200. fully agree.

    Of course, it's all about priorities.
    Suppose we exam your 5 day anchor comment.

    It might be 5 days for a week, a month, or even a few months. My point is once you are out of SP’s and can only get 5 SP per level up, that 5-day anchor will slip and eventually become 6 days (then 7 days, etc). And if you are leveling up every 5 days, the irony is you will reach a 6 day anchor at a fast pace. The paradox is by preserving your leveling speed, you will lose your 5 day anchor fast (or the slower you level up, the longer you maintain your anchor), other things being equal.

    Separately, when I joined CA PVP builds wanted to level up as *slowly* as possible to maximize their BSI. It’s the same principle that I espoused earlier and PVP understood leveling up every 2 to 3 weeks was the price for high BSI. And if you don’t use any Energy or Stamina, you never level up and have insane BSI like my level 7 drones with 200 to 300+ BSI’s. My second point is you don’t have to level up.

    Leveling speed can eventually stabilize, just need to add nearly all sp to en/stm

    Even adding every SP gained to en/stm, levelling speed still slows.

    My 'mini' is testament to this.

    Went with 815 / 818 energy for several years, but it had a few drawbacks:

    1) Since you rarely can finish quests with that, I ended up taking notes which quests I started. To avoid being like 50% in multiple quests... Annoying.

    2) You can ramp up the health bar of a public monster once, maybe twice - but then you are stuck when you encounter yet another monster with a drained health bar.

    3) Energy refills felt like a waste, so I never did them. Still sitting on 82 pots, hoping for interesting events to burn them.

    Things became way more fun with 2099 energy. As a free player, I am not eager to roll specifically for Hyacinth - even rolling for Oblivion in general is not that convincing (Onslaught items give +4 attack, opposed to lousy +4 defense).

    Monkey King and Layla can completely change this nowadays though.

    A 5 stars MK gives you 12.5% more XP. Allied with a 3 stars Layla (+62.74% clone), that makes it 20.34% free XP.
    You can go back to leveling without waiting with highly leveled and promoted Layla and MK.

    Though ofc if you're not a spender, it's hard to get these 2 heroes at those promotion levels.
    If you're a high LSI build, you can however get 2 Legendary chests each Meteorite event rather easily I believe.
    But the MK promos will make it so much easier, especially with the Promo Orbs for Layla.

    I know a player who has a 4 stars Layla and soon to be 7 stars MK.
    That will give +29.57% free XP.
    MK (and Layla) can make an absolutely huge difference in leveling speed.
    Even a 1* Layla and 3* MK, or a 5* MK alone, give a very substantial boost already (+12.1-5% free XP).

    I would say it is unlikely. Getting 1 is more or less granted, but 2 is beyond free players unless you've been saving pots for a long time. I only placed 263 in last event with 4050ene/3500sta, a 2* level 79 Monkey King , 8 Full energy pots and around 15 Full stamina pots. Top75 was not only out of reach but clearly didn't deserve the effort (unless I knew for sure I would get 2 MK)
