'kay, Here is the EXP% for Yoitsuki school Year 1! Now, ALL of you people out there can join us, those who were waiting just for this moment, to finally download the client and come online. You now have NO excuse! (except for if you have a crap pc with low specs). Read the 1st post of this thread for details on how to use these charts.
Some advice for noobs: You may have noticed the EXP for Year 1 episodes are alot higher than those in the Year 2 chart. This means that leveling up in Year 1 is a lot faster, and thus, you get to see and do a lot in a very short time.
Again, try your darnedest (?spelling) to join a group to complete an episode, ANY group (whether Japanese or not). Just hop into a Waiting Room from the Episode Lobby where there are people in there already (the more the better, since as Smithy has said, you get a higher chance of getting a random rare clothing or weapon item after completing the episode). Again, even if you are weak, if you can complete the Year 1 Boss episode with a group of stronger people (of course dying 5 or 6 times and respawning), you can get between 48-63% (you should be able to access this episode once reaching Power lvl 7) WOOOW!
Now, since abruptly joining a group of strangers may look a little rude, especially if you can't speak Japanese, here are some basic phrases to type (in romanji):
"Sanka sasete kudasai~!" = Please let me join your group
"Dozo yoroshiku" = It's nice to me you/all of you
"Watashi no namae wa ___ desu" = My name is ___
"Sumimasen, nihongo dame desu" = Sorry, I can't speak Japanese
"Otsukaresama desu" = (almost everyone says this after finishing an eps) = A job well done/Good job guys/Thanks for your hard effort
"Mou ichido dou?" = How about one more episode? (the same one)
"Domo, matane" = Thanks, see you later
If you get a long response after typing the 1st phrase, they are probably chatting or waiting for someone; So just say the last phrase and find another room (click the orange button). Either way, if you don't get the message, they can just kick you out of the room anyways; nothing personal.
Who knows, after just using the above phrases only, you probably will find the occasional English-speaking Japanese, who will help you out. A lot of them are very nice people. Maybe you can even start chatting about anime... "Haruhiism suki desuka?"
(heh heh, cool this is my 100th post...)
