Default Reached lvl 33, things got REALLY bad.

Hi folks.
I noticed several of you reached lvl 100, I read your feedbacks and I agree with most of the points you made (some I haven't experienced yet).

But, no one mentioned "problem" I am having atm. I finished 3 sectors and for that time, I moved from lvl 32 to lvl 33, and I am in process of finishing another sector and I am still 3/4 of lvl 33.
Issues I have:

XP rewards for doing jobs is same as it was when I was lvl 10, or perhaps even lvl 1. I don't remember but 1500xp for killing boss is nothing at lvl 33. I can only imagine how much 1500xp means when you are lvl 70...

So, I guess what I want to say is, leveling up is a problem. Mobs that took 1 rocket to die an gave 75-100xp now take at least 2 (better) rockets to die (very time consuming when fighting 20 of them) and give 26-40xp.

Mobs are bigger and stronger, take more hits to kill, debuff you etc BUT they give less XP. Faction jobs give the same XP as they always (as far as I can remember) did. Loot is the same for the past 5 levels, mostly computers loot that I don't even use. This brings me to another point:
Why invest 50+ points (or 30+ for that matter) into something that you only need one or two components?

another point: My ship has roughly 1100 attack (gives 96% to hit lvl 33 ship) and I don't have a single computer thing that gives attack except from the part that came with the Human ship (I am using human ship). My defense sucks a bit, it's 500 (like I said, I don't use computer parts for att/def).
what happens is I am missing lvl 26 mobs ~30% of the time. This is without any debuffs on me, just to make it clear. So I have 96% chance to hit lvl 33 ship, but apparently I have ~70% chance to hit anything else? (I triple checked all this).

Best weapon I have is 86dps rail with added crit and attack (usual drops or store items are 46-54 dps ones) and It takes at least two hits from that rail to kill a white lvl 26-27 mob, assuming it doesn't miss (miss roll, not miss aim). That same mob can drain 200 of my shields during that time (I have 700 shields). When it dies, I gives me 14xp.

Now, is there something I am missing? I am getting bored killing 200 things to get one box on xp bar. It takes me 30 minutes for nothing :S Without lvl up game looses it's "charm". I killed so much things trying to lvl up in past 3 sectors that in 2 of them I had a "legend win"... :S

Any thoughts or help is appreciated.

I need tips for gaining XP faster, not much to do with components. I only mentioned miss chance and numbers of hits on small mobs as part of a problem with gaining XP faster. Anyway, here is my ship:



click for the big image.

I cannot mess around with my setup (much) due to power issues, I can change weapon in red slot and that I do, alternate from beam (68dps) and rail (84dps, I think) those are the best I could find. Still, my chance to hit lvl 34 (I am 34, not 33, sorry, it's been a long night :P ) is 95% yet I often miss normal white mobs (not special or bosses). That shouldn't happen. Like I said, it happens often and I am not debuffed. Even when they debuff me (-30% attack) I still have over 90% chance to hit them.
But like I said, game has become a drag for me, level ups are slow, loot is getting old (I tried normal, expert (same mobs lvl as me) and I see no difference. This is 5th sector since I was lvl 30/31 if I am not mistaken.

If you need additional info I will try and provide.

PS. I am happy with my ship, it's just that I feel like I should have 120dps rail, not this 80dps, and that one was a lucky drop, they are usually around 55dps.

'Strongest Monster Defeated: Oozing Schistos (Lvl 30)" and you're 33 lvl complaining that xp flow has stopped...? Come on, mate, you'd better play in your league Anyway grinding is not an option to lvlup, do the quests and all will be fine.

Yup. You've outlevelled your current Sector. It's always best to have your next Sector ya start = to or a level above your current level, & play at maximum pace for the xp bonus, & I find it to not pay to worry about what Races think of ya too hard... resist the temptation to get picky about what Quests ya cash in for cash & xp cause ya need to cash in plenty of quests to grow properly.

Also, some of the strong xp quests require ya to talk to the planet giving them & can't be accepted from the Relations Screen, including but not limited to Planet Colonization Missions.

Lastly, one of the buggers of +Computer Races is that there's a shortage of AOE Damage Hit Roll Weapons for crowds of enemies... the only one I know well is the 'Shock Torpedo' Family of weapons that my Utopian Alt is currently trying out... & it's not impressing me in its performance all that much...

I am playing sector on "expert" and I have selected monster starting level same as my ship level. That is what game generated. Not my fault really...If there was anything stronger I would have killed it, or I will kill it.

Quests give 400/800/1200xp. Most of them them are fetch quests for 400xp that take a lot of time. Others are "find XY "things" to help us cure<other thing>" and I usually fail those because no matter how many times I circle the sector, drops for the quest are rare and quest eventually fails. Pretty irritating. You know what quests I mean, kill X type of mobs to get loot that race needs for research or a cure. Those loots are very rare, either there are very few mobs and not every one of them drops the item or quest doesn't even say what should I kill so it's kinda...hard.

Planet Colonization Missions.
No. Just no. Grind is more efficient that that, time wise.

I don't think yu folks understand me. For those 2d of play, 1d is from lvl 30 to 34, the rest is 1 to 30 including me figuring out wth is going on in the game. My problem/issue with the game is that I need more XP to level up but I get the same amount of XP for everything I do. Killing a boss for 1000XP was very good when I was lvl 20, 1000XP is nothing on lvl 30. Don't you think that XP should scale up with level? I am not killing lvl 10 mobs, they are now lvl 27-30 (they should be 33/34, I selected that).
Those mobs HURT yet they give very little XP. Actually, they give same XP as before (in relation to my ship) they just hurt more.
PS. I can't handle fast pace, I mean, I did that once and it was very hard. I am not looking for a challenge that big. I run into problems on normal pace as it is, when I get surrounded by 20-30 mobs and a bounty hunter in the midst, or some boss(s) they get into my structure in seconds and I have to run. All that respawning in the middle of the fight would kill me for sure. (it did before)

I am sorry, can you clarify this a bit? I don't think I understand. Some races (like Utopians) declare war on me for no reason, we are nutral or they might even like me then just declare war). Some races ask of me to declare war on a race that I am good with and since I reject them (usually Brunt or Talon wan't me to declare war on the strongest race, which is insane for me to do) that usually leads to them hating me and declaring war on me (I don't really care anyway, I just destroy their planets).
Also, I can't spend a good rumor about me. How can I make them like me besides doing quests and killing around their planets? Once in War, it stays that way (sure, peace threaty is an option for like 100K credits...in their dreams :d )

+computer races? You mean as in computer stat is giving me, as a human race, more dmg in tact? I have mines as a class weapon, that's aoe. I don't know what is hit&roll weapon. I can use some missiles that have EM splash damage but they are weak. I can use bombs, also weak (~20ish dps) and slow and can't really aim with them. I can also usethat EM weapon that damages all around the ship. That was good but it is stuck at some 9dps since lvl 20...I haven't found better yet. if I find a better one, like at least 20dps, I am going back to that :P

Also, no one comments on my hit chance and me missing those underdogs often? Is that a bug?

just an example, quest on a lvl 33/34 universe (made on expert)
http://i.imgur.com/RkqHj9M.jpg

156xp? ....I can kill 10 mobs in 5 mins, which is also a problem, they need to give more xp than or I will need 20 days in game time to reach lvl 100, and I really don't think I wan't to be stuck that long on one ship. I am def. doing something wrong. I will try faster pace and mobs above my level in next map. I am just afraid that I am going to be dying horribly and loosing XP thus progressing even slower then I am now :S On last map 2 bounty hunters gave me a headache, I didn;t die (they were lvl 27) but I wen't through 2 stacks of regen items getting in/out of fight trying to single them out and not die :S

are you guys dying often? Is that normal? What are the penalties?

I'm running a human ship at level 56 and I'm still gaining levels pretty well.
I don't know what's wrong in this case, but if nothing else I guess I can say I do NOT think it is normal to have that much trouble leveling.

I guess as far as suggestions go, I notice you're running two shields which I personally think might be excessive. I've never tried running more than one shield.
I dunno if it'll help in this case, but try removing a shield and putting a computer or radar in that medium slot. Not sure if that would help, but my current build runs two computers/radars in the medium slots and I don't have trouble killing most mobs, so maybe it might help.

That probably won't "solve" the issue but I'm not sure what else to say without knowing more.

Agreed on the "find XY things" Quests... sometimes I get them solved easily, other times I can't find the right kinda Monster for the drop after over 30 minutes of searching... dunno the deal here.

Our 2 games must be working differently... I find Colonization Quests plenty profitable & worthwhile, as long as i'm not in a bind about if I can afford to be without one of my Components of a certain kinda Slot. It's especially a good Mission Type if the Colonization Mission is for a Race that the Drox High Command wants kept alive.

Also, ya can accept the Mission, Unequip the Colony Module, & sell it to a different Race for a bunch of Cash if ya can find a Race that can afford the Module, in exchange for failing the Quest, but don't be surprised if the Race ya took the Quest from get VERY angry with ya afterwards! XD

Methinks having ONLY a single Ballistic Weapon & Mines alone is inadequate armament for Droxing. Also, Mines are a non-Hit Roll Weapon... stupid lack of synergy making a non-Hit Roll Weapon a Racial Slot on a +Computers Race... >_<

Have ya tried monitoring Race Relations by pushing "R" to go to the Race Relations Screen? Also, take note that Relations fall if ya cash in Quests for Other races a Race is currently disliking/hating... but if ya dance around this carefully, you'll miss out on Quest xp & cash rewards.

You can make a Race like ya if ya kill Race Ships that are at war with the Race ya wanna raise Relations with if there is War going on.

Yes, I was indeed talking about Races that have +Computer Bonus, including Humans. They start with +2 Computer Stat & they get a +20% effect on the Computer Stat's effect, which is of course, +Attack. What I call 'Hit Roll' Weapons & 'non-Hit Roll' Weapons, what I mean by them is some weapons collide with an Enemy, & then your Attack Stat is rolled against the enemies's Defense Stat to determine if the attack lands on the enemy or not. Some Weapons don't use this 'roll' & only need to have their attack be touching the enemy to hit. & note: Bombs rock against Crowds. If you're not proficient with them, then no sweat, to each their own. Those 'missiles that have EM splash damage' is what I was talking about with the one Hit Roll powered AOE Damage Weapon... & I agree on them being disappointing... The 'em weapon that damages all around the Ship'... methinks you refer to the "Lightning Field" Weapon... those have a low drop rate, but are a good side weapon. Be cautioned though that the Lightning Field is a non-Hit Roll Weapon, thus wastes the points spent in the Computer Stat.

I only have 2 Hit Roll Weapon using Character atm... but from their play, I haven't noticed similar difficulty... but then again, both use Computer/Sensor Components for +Attack. The game might have been built around Hit Roll Weapon using Characters needing at least 1 +Attack Component equipped to not miss too much... this I can't say for sure. Speaking of Sensors, imho, they're the best +Attack Component of them all because they give both +Attack & +Crit Chance, thus meaning both better accuracy & more damage for kill power.

O_0 This Pic was seriously taken at lvl 33 in a lvl 30 Sector!!? For Real!!? Maybe Shadow does need to take a look at your Game Files to see if something has gone wrong... O_0

I die semi often, but that's partially i'm aggressive, & partially most of my Characters are built a lot more for offense than defense, so few of them are tankish. (& by few, I mean only my Hive Character, with aid form a Mod. XD ) I got over 200 Deaths overall as of the time of this Post. XD

I had to learn the hard way that Armor is your friend & NOONE is gonna get away with never raising their Structure Stat & leaving it at just 5 forever. XD

ya, pic is for real, I am alt-tabed while I type here, It was taken from same sector and same game from which I took stats of my ship. Like I said, all quests I do give up to some 1500xp, I'd say they average at about 400.

as for hit and roll weapons, well I Am using a beam weapon and a balistic weapon. As I understand those are H&R? If so, take a look at my stats, I have plenty of attack, my chance to hit is 95%, I have +attack on almost every component (that's why I managed to get 1000+ attack without utilizing computers almost at all (my shield has +200, my gun has +150, my green shield has +100ish etc)) and those are the weapons I get misses with. Chance fells like 70%, on mobs under my lvl o.O weird. That's why I brought it up.

Also, like I said earlier - maybe the mob is level under me, but a green or red mob will crit on me and vaporize my ~700 shields, then go through my plating which is only 450ish and in a matter of seconds they are in my structure bar (I had to put that extra structure yellow part). Loosing one shield is hardly an option, mobs will be in my green bar all the time.
Maybe once I can carry that shield recharger and find a bigger shield (like 400+) I will ditch one of the shields (I mean replace both yellow ones for a bigger one), I just don't see how would that help me, I simply don't have the power to put any decent yellow weapon.

I was able to roll with EM yellow wep (that 3 times stack debuff) and missiles (+mines) and ofc, that was a lot better then wep + mine but I had to put another shield at around lvl 30, I explained. Now I tank small mobs and I those I could pull of even without a shield, BUT, then something fast, crit striking nasty comes along and bam! I am eating consumables one after another lol.

As for bombs, I tried them, I just can't seem to hit with them (id keep them as a side weapon if I could) and when I do, they do they don't do much dmg :S Bombs I am getting are around 20-24dps. Missiles are 70-80dps, my beam is 70, and my particle is 90. My mine is almost 40. So sure, bombs help but dmg is low, for now. Maybe I will find some epic bomb sometime :P Weapons still confuse me a bit (difference between nuclear, fusion, fission etc if there is any at all)

And as for level of mobs I am playing, I played the game on "Normal" from the start. I thought that will manage my diff. level to be, well, not easy, not hard but normal. It felt decently chalenging at times (bosses and such) so I didn't think much of it, just kept it there at normal. It's not my fault really that the highest lvl mob I killed was some lvl 30 boss. I am sure he was not easy though. I will try different settings but I don't know what many of them actually mean. I figured that "pacing" is respawn time of mobs and that's about it)
Also, sorry that I am not quoting everything/everybody atm :P And sorry if I am boring you with these wall-lenght posts :P

cheers.
