Benefits of Being a Student
First off, what are the benefits of getting a Mentor and becoming a Student? A lot! Here’s a list of why you should get a Mentor as soon as possible.
1. Get 170% EXP rate for 24 hours
Mentors can use an item called Adventure Guide on their Students, which gives a whopping 170% EXP rate bonus to the Student for 24 hours!
The Adventure Guide can be bought for 2,000 zeny on the Mentor Shop NPC (Dammy).
2. Get +20 Stats Bonus
Aside from the Adventure Guide, Mentors can also use Guardian Scrolls on their Students which gives +20 status bonuses for 24 hours. However, this cannot be used on Transcendent job students.
The Guardian Scroll can be bought for 2,000 zeny on the Mentor Shop NPC (Dammy).
3. Get four Gold Medals and other rewards for free
As a Student, you get Growth Rewards once you reach certain levels. You’ll get Eden equips, a Lunatic egg, Eden Coins and Meatballs among others.
The best part is you get one Gold Medal at Level 40, 50, 60 and 70—a total of four Gold Medals absolutely for free! (Related: Guide to Rune System)
Take note that you’ll still get all rewards even when you’re at a higher level already. For example, you can still get Mentored for the first time at Level 84 and you can claim all rewards from lower levels.
4. Get Zeny and Base/Job EXP for completing Daily and Weekly Adventure Quests
Here’s another great way to level up even faster! Students get bonus Zeny and EXP for completing Daily and Weekly quests. It’s similar to the Assistant quests.
You get the bonus Zeny and EXP by doing the following Adventure Quests:
- Clear 2, 6, 10 Message Board Quests
- Clear 2 and 5 Time Rifts
- Clear Training Ground
- Accept the Adventure Guide Buff
- Do Valhalla Ruins
- Clear floors 20, 40, 50, 60 of the Endless Tower
How to Become a Student
To become a Student, just find a Mentor and let him enroll you as a Student by clicking on your icon (in Friends or Party list) and selecting “Enroll Student.”
Then just confirm the Mentorship request in More > Friends > Mentorship tab (Graduation hat icon).
Once accepted, you can now check more details on the Mentorship tab, like your Growth Rewards and Adventure Quest list.
How to Graduate as a Student at Lv 85
At Level 85 and 3 days of being Mentored, congratulations! You can now graduate.
Just talk to the NPC Tataji in Prontera, also near the bridge. He’ll ask a few easy questions. After talking to some NPCs in the Adventure Hall, talk to Tataji again to finish your graduation.
You’ll get a Ph.D Hat and 50,000 zeny. In addition, you may now start mentoring Students too!
Benefits of Mentoring
1. Get bonus 120 Stamina/Combat Time
As a Mentor with Premium, you can get 1 Stamina per 3 Stamina points consumed by your students. You can only gain a total of 120 Stamina per day. (Total of 180 bonus Stamina per day including 60 Stamina from music)
To get the bonus Stamina, you only need to be in the same map as the student in combat. You don’t have to be in the same party or near each other, which is great so you don’t leech exp and loots from your students. Also, the more students in combat in the same map, the faster you can get the free 120 Stamina!
Important Note: Get your 60 Stamina from music first before the Stamina from Students. For some reason you can’t get Music Stamina anymore after you get Student Stamina for that day.
2. Mentor Medals
Mentor Medals are a type of currency used to purchase items from Danny, the Mentor Shop NPC in Prontera. He sells the following:
- Mora Coin — used for enchantments
- Eden Coins — used to buy Blueprints / Lucky Shop
- Guild’s Gift — gives 25 Guild Contributions
- Ph.D Hat — headgear
- Adventure Guide — gives 170% exp rate to Student for 24 hours
- Guardian Scroll — gives +20 bonus Stats to non-Trans Student for 24 hours
You can obtain Mentor Medals through the following:
- When Students finish their Adventure Quests (more on this on the Student section below)
- When Students level up
- When Students graduate at Level 85
How to Become a Mentor
To become a Mentor, you need to be at least Level 85. Then talk to Terch, the Senior Mentor NPC and complete the short quest. He is located near the bridge in Prontera, next to the Mentor Shop.
How to Recruit a Student
Once you’re a Mentor, you can now start enrolling Students in the Mentorship window. Students need to be at Level 10-84. You can mentor a maximum of 3 Students.
Just go to More > Friends > Mentorship tab (Graduation hat icon).
You can also select your friends or partymates and click “Enroll Student.”
Finally, you can also auto-invite a random player by clicking on the “+” icon in the Students list. It will automatically search for an available Student and invite him/her.
Obviously, you’ll want to mentor Students who are active in the game so you get lots of Mentor Medals!
As you learned, there are so many benefits on using the Mentorship system. So make sure to get a Mentor as soon as you can at early levels, then get Students to mentor as soon as you reach Level 85.
