    I've made about 400 world maps and still no gain in 3 days . Stuck at 99.5 Any suggestions?
  2. decode maps?

    ... but 3 days means you should have 3 GGS.

    normaly in 5 days after you reached 99.5% you should become GM...

    You have to either decode level 2-4 treasure maps to go above 99.5 (or get discoed by a satyr, and craft maps there for the gains while discoed)

  6. when you even didint got the GGS.. maybe you dont have any free skillpoints?

    check you skills, maybe you have to set one to decrease, to increase your cartho.

    yeah cart is sorta like lockpicking in that gains will stop at a certain point & then you can only gain from specific things. For LP its doing dungeon chests & such after 95.0, for cartography, at 99.5 you can't gain makin world maps anymore, you have to actually decode Tmaps, levels 2-4.

    Of course, getting discorded as mentioned is the other option, but with GGS it shouldnt take too long by just decoding maps :)

    Shouldn't take more than 10 minutes if you go use a satyr (theoretically)
