Greetings!!!

As the title said it.. How do we do it the fastest way?

Presuming you're already Level 20 (for Tyrian/Cathan characters)

Aside from doing Quests or Mission.

Kindly state the Highest location of Bounty given and Monsters to kill.

~Commander Hellspear.

Just about everything in the vicinity of Sunspear Sanctuary (which is where you'd be, most likely, if working towards Sunspear General) gives 4 points per kill. So it doesn't really matter, just pick your poison, so to speak.

Just find an area you can kill fast in, and map the area. Find all the shrines, and talk to all the priests. Because you can have multiple bounties running, make sure you get them. Then any mob that you kill adds fast. I am stuck at sunspear castellan, but I hear that is cap for now.

Actually as you get further in the game the promotion point rewards jump to 7 points per kill. Just keep finding and talking to any priests or such that are located near the rez shrine. If you see a rez shrine, look for a dude in green lettering. Whatever his name, stop and talk to him. He will likely give you a bounty or whatever that will help you gain promo points fast. The promo points you get from this accelerate your chance to get the title. I just did most of the quests around the area and the primary quests to move through the game. I never game much thought to title General anyways, just opened my panel and realized I had it ;)

You might want to consider farming for points in Arkjok Ward, east of Yohlon's Haven. That's where I farmed for my Castellan title. On average you get around 600-800 per run. Just make sure you get the Insect Hunt blessing and the Mandragor Blessing.

While this info is correct, I'm pretty sure you can't get to the 7 point per kill areas until AFTER you get the Sunspear General title and advance the stoyline missions.

I found I just got general as I went along. I've got about double what you need for it and I've barely got out of newb island, no real farming seems necessary. I'm sure in the process of exploration/capping I'll get castellan too eventually. Everyone's got commander or better, it's just too common to be worth applying yourself to getting:grin:

I liked Killing Hekets (thoose creatures with elder croco pets), they are with nice group; few groups close to eachoter;
Talk to scout
Kill group
Move on to next group
Until everything is dead
Rezone

I second whoever suggested the area right outside Yohlon Haven. The insects right outside in Arjok Ward use Frenzy, so they go down really quick, especially if you/heroes have AoE skills equipped. I zone out, grab blessing, kill insects to the north and south of shrine, then rezone, rinse, repeat. It's very very quick, especially if you take as much AE out there as you can. I used my ranger (R/P with go for the eyes), and Acolyte Jin, both with barrage, Zenmai as A/R Crit Barrage, and Melonni with Holy damage AE spam and Cynn. I've found this way to be much quicker than running the full zone.

Does anyone know of a spot for farming Sunspear Points from a creature that gets respawned?

It involves killing monster groups that have monks that can rez. You have to becareful not to kill the monks. An example would be the undead in desolation.

Both my characters I farmed general outside pogahn passage, the priest right outside has kournan bounty and you are right next to that big fort full of kournans where koss was being held. The only pain is the acolyte of grenth who just blatently owns things in one hit.

I like

a) Yehlon Haven > Arkjok Ward

Get the insect bounty, and near the spawnpoint you will see a huge cluster of bugs. Rinse and repeat.

b) Pogahn Passage > Arkjok Ward

Grab the kournan bounty and kill any kournan you see! The kournans are found entirely on the right side of map (all on the little islands)

Although I didn't need to do any of those (once each) because I did quests :) My tyrian warrior had 388 points by the time he needed to get 'spear general

I cleared out the entirety of Arkjok Ward earlier. With 6 bounties on offer I managed to get over 1300 sunspear points in the run.

My first suggestion is to just do every quest you find in the area, and always make sure you grab every shrine you see and go out of your way to kill things that would give you +sunspear points. Once you do that, then you can start farming the same areas... the above give good ideas where.

I don't understand the purpose of getting more points. I know it says that the higher the rank the more abilities and responsbilites you will have. I just got to the commander rank but I don't feel anything different... Can some one give me some example as to what benefits that come with higher ranks? Thanks.

The responsibilites are regarding (and related to) your heroes.
The benefits of getting higher ranks is gaining more Hero Skill Points.

Slightly off-topic, but...

Does anyone know what the checkbox just beside your Sunspear title is used for ? :huh:

That's the toggle to display the associated Sunspear title. Check it for "Sunspear Commander" or whatever level you have currently to display it below your name online.
