well.. i consider this not a race but a motivational page and a check for our progress that we want to share.
maybe someone is over 500 adn does not want to share his total
maybe someone is at 2 and it is the begining of a journey to discover the game,
some day is harsh, some is a bit nicer... always relaxing and fun (at least to me)
There are many level 1...5 monster around EU many ahve less than 100 HP so require max 30 pec per kill.
it is not difficult to obtain the first 100 Meta if reading wiki and sorting for "lowest maturity HP" to plan.
meta adds intellingence (looter), stamina (HP), Str or Agility (minor HP and melee or range profession)
the pursuit of Meta point result in a bulky and efficient skill set.
I think this goes for everything really, not only these kind of lists.
It's the same thing with knowledge, profit (even in tt), how efficient they are and so on, so these kind of lists and
posts, at least for me, aren't really done to show off if someone is best in the entire game, so these shouldn't be taken so seriously.
This is more about showing what can be done, if they also work as something that stimulate others to keep going then even better.
Been exploring DSEC 9 some and it's connected to Toulan not Monria in codex. 2 mobs in DSEC (otis/lotus) which brings Toulan to 15/15. Was able to grind out some Toulan codex in DSEC as all the mobs count in Toulan.
