Book of Training manuals can be used to gain a small amount of combat EXP and/or skill EXP whilst you are AFK. Unlike actually grinding, if you AFK level there are no silver/item gains and the manuals cost silver for each hour you use them.
The manuals must be purchased from Jamey Drucker, who is located in Velia, Heidel, Calpheon, Altinova, Valencia, Grana, and Duvencrune (locations below).
You can also use the NPC finder to search for him and it will show his locations on the map.
How to use the Book of Training
There are four durations available for both the Combat EXP and Skill EXP Training Manuals needed to AFK level:
|1 hour||1,000,000 silver|
|3 hours||3,000,000 silver|
|5 hours||5,000,000 silver|
|10 hours||10,000,000 silver|
The Book of Training Manual can only be used for characters that are above level 50 and it will only provide 99% of your current level.
Once you have bought a Book of Training Manual, you must right-click it in your inventory to activate the buff. You can use both a combat EXP and skill EXP Training Manual at the same time and can pop additional books to extend the time. Be careful not to start AFK training before maintenance, because the buff will continue to count down even if you are offline, and you will lose time on your Training Manual.
After popping the buff, you will be able to interact with the training dummies near Jamey Drucker, by pressing “R” next to them. You will receive combat and/or skill EXP every 3 minutes, depending on the book you used. You can stop training at any time and then go back to the training dummies and interact with them again to start training, but only if you still have the Book of Training buff active. Doing this will also restart the 3-minute EXP tick.
You must not be in a party and should also make sure you have a main-hand weapon and offhand equipped or you will not be able to interact with the training dummies.
It’s also important to note that other EXP buffs will take affect, such as Milk Tea, Golden Bells, and Combat Books, so you should use as many EXP buffs as possible to increase your EXP gain.
- Extra Tip: AFK Train on the Arsha server because Golden Bells are more frequent on this server.
Below is an estimate of how long it will take to use the Training Manuals (without buffs). It will actually be much quicker and cheaper if you use as many EXP buffs as possible.
|Level||Approximate EXP per hour||Hours to level up||Days to level up||Silver required to level up|
|56 to 57||1.92%||51.56||2.14||52 million|
|57 to 58||1.16%||85.34||3.55||86 million|
|58 to 59||0.62%||159.67||6.65||160 million|
|59 to 60||0.32%||309.37||12.89||310 million|
|60 to 61||0.15%||660||27.5||660 million|
|61 to 62||0.04%||2,475||103.12||2.475 billion|
With all EXP buffs, level 61 to 62 is approximately 1% per 10 hours, which will take around 50 days if you’re AFK training for 20 hours per day. This costs a total of 1 billion silver.
|Skillpoints||Approximate EXP per hour||Hours to level up||Silver required to level up|
|Below 600||500%||0.198||1 million|
|Below 1000||150%||0.66||1 million|
|1000 to 1300||120%||0.83||1 million|
|1300 to 1450||120%||0.83||1 million|
|1450 to 1600||50%||2||2 million|
|1600 to 1700||50%||2||2 million|
|1700 to 1750||40%||2.5||3 million|
|1750 to 1800||38%||2.63||3 million|
|1800 to 1850||20%||5||5 million|
|1850 to 1900||20%||5||5 million|
