we all want our characters to be strong and we all want to play strong, but with limited time this will be a long shot unless you resort to legal (php item shop items and sell it ingame) or illegal ways in building up your character. in my case if i summed up my playing hours i might not be able to reach 1 year, but ive been playing since 2008. And i have vowed that i will only rely on my ingame earnings gained within my limited playtime in building up my character, so that i can relish my hard earned toil and give credit to my self by doing so. hence, doing otherwise is not a measure of being a good player for me, its like letting php or a pilot or a cheat work for you ingame, and that cannot be condsidered an achievement. but i guess to each his own is the general rule in this game. i have mine and i leave what any other means that other players do with theirs. anyways, i still enjoy the game inspite of this and inspite of my weak character, normal piloting skills and limited playtime
my activity ingame is mostly doing IC with the free entry, just enough for 2 hours. got lucky with the loots and was able to setup an ST outrageous set for my BL with just normal lycanus weps to at least improve my dungeon runs. this is just were i earn my alz. i dont play mwars anymore because of the rampant cheat, guess im stuck at HR 12. but i still enjoy the game. i set my goals to build my other characters set through just dungeon runs. and maybe try crafting, whenever there will be enough alz to spare. a long way to go but at least i enjoy the game in spite of its weaknesses.
so you...how do you do it in your limited playtime, the hard way?

Been playing this awesome game for 4 years and spent an a whole lot of money for my main's set, nung adik pa ako sa larong to halos 10 hours ako nag ca-cabal, pag gising ng umaga hanggang madaling araw na nmn, tulog,, tapos gigising n nmn ulit para mag cabal na naman ulit.. pero nung nag lie low ako (dahil sa pagkakaban ng aking account) for 3 months at nag start ng restaurant biznes... ngaun ko lang na realize n mas maganda palang mag grind sa real life kesa ibuhos ang oras sa isang game, ngaun pasilip silip na lang ako sa laro at dito sa forums, bumababa ang gastos (at stress) dahil wala ng cabal, kumikita pa.. try nyo iapply IRL mga natutunan nyo sa cabal... mga natutunan ko sa cabal na maa apply ko in real life: "BE CAUTIOUS OF SCAMMER".. napakarami nito irl kaya ingat sa mga manloloko... Farm / Buy low, Sell High / Crafting: mga terms ngaun na ginagamit ko sa bizniz ko... socialize with friends like how you socialize with your in game friends (guild mates and buddies), go out, hunt some chicks and have life!!

same here, grinding IRL sa work hindi kasi pwedeng hindi mag grind lalo na may 3 kids kaya tamang larong lang pag may oras. at para less stress nga sa laro at di manghinayang na hindi nagagamit ang character, i make it a point to play and earn alz according to what i can do in my limited time, and that is dungeon runs. long process para lumakas, at mas malamang na hindi ko na nga din abutin pa ang maging imba at mauna pa na mawala ang cabal hehe pero ok lang. just play when able, para no stress.

I usually go to work at 8am and come home late around 9pm. No time na para mag-grind. gabi gabi yun IC free ticket. Nawalan na ko ng gana. I was on hiatus for 8 months. Ngayon lang ulit ako bumalik, badluck sa dungeon runs... cant keep up na with the pace. Until last night, bad luck was broken. I looted Terra (FA) Suit 2 slots 7% all skill amp. not bad na. btw mith seth FULL ako dati binenta ko lang for php. ngayong nagbalik ako, ST set +15 na lang gamit ko... nakakamiss ang mith set... (nabili ko yun through farming, saka bumili ko ng ALZ hehe)

I don't build my character to become very strong in game, enough to equip it to have fun while playing.
1-3 hours, walang scheduled activities na gagawin, minsan, nasa Mwar, minsan sa dungeons, chat with other players, minsan wala lang, walang definite na gawain, kung ano lang pumasok sa isip the time na mag-OL, yun lang,
sometimes, I spent more than 5 hours just dancing in BI, sa dami na gawain IRL, mahaba na ang 5 hrs na naka online.
