    I've decided to give this another try hopping it will help Arkadian newcomers (and not only) to figure out quicker which SIB weapons are most efficient for certain Profession levels. Most of the resources I've checked are gone, including the old thread here on this forum; for some reason, all images are broken.
    Entropia Planets has some tables that are automatically updated, but they are tables, not charts.
    The charts on PCF are great... but from what I saw they are targeted to Calypso.

    Please keep in mind that the data is incomplete. Also, I will only post Laser Handguns for now, but if there is enough interest I will follow up with other types.

    SIB = Skill Increase Bonus
    Certain items give extra skills for increasing durations of professional levels. Using SIB items gives faster skill gains and thus faster professional leveling. Maxed SIB items are also good choices for economical gameplay because you are getting the most use/pec.
    (Non-SIB items require 100 levels to get the max use).

    Feel free to do the other types, like BLP. It's what I use for the few moments I use guns/rifles.

    Will do, and thanks for posting. I have them already, just a little graphic tweaking. I see there is some interest, so I'll post the rest; we'll see how it turns out I guess.

    I would be very interested in Melee, specifically short blades! But I dont have enough knowledge to do it myself. Very useful thanks.

    Yes it is very useful for new players, mid and ubers alike, or just those who are interested.
    Could you switch the bars of start & end SIB though? Now it looks a bit odd to me, with the smaller start SIB on top.

    OK... I had to do some work as some data was incorrect; I've edited what I could.
    - updated the Handguns
    - added Carbine, Rifle and Crossbow... all Laser.

    I got others liking it this way :confused:... so we'll see which designed makes more sense; thanks for replying and imput!

    No real need to put the start SIB for any Ark weapons, because the SIB range for all Ark weapons is 5. Just use the maxed at number, it will clean up the graph.

    If that's the case then I'll go ahead and fill up the missing data where we only have SIB start but there is no Maxed value. Let's see how BLP stuff will look with only 1 value. Thanks Neil!

    OK... so by popular demand I have excluded the Recommended bar from the new charts I've posted (time permitting I may repost the first ones). Just subtract 5 from the Maxed level and you get your Recommended.
    Added:
    BLP Handgun
    BLP Rifle
    Plasma Rifle
    Longblades
    Shortblades.

    It has shown me that I actually need to get in game and kill stuff instead of constantly worrying about the next upgrade!

    You have a typo. You have named shortblades longblades next to the chart.

    I know this is a necro, but thank you! Being new, there is SO much info online when you Google things, and so much of it is outdated since the game is so old. Appreciate the help!
