Oh, yeah, my expertise is mucking things up and get these kinds of numbers (unironically, truly am XD )
I had a big muck up last year and worked it down down down before even considering going forward. I was below 100, probably even more.
BUT Guru matters!
Right now, due to going too fast in 48-51 while not having the mind for it (too much teflon, nothing sticks -_- )
I now have 120 apprentice, even though I’ve gone SLOW!
I will not do a single lesson unless apprentice is under 100 (I made an exception for vocab, to get them in circulation shortly after Kanji Guru. 150 is my hard limit, 100 my soft)
I have 17 items in lesson, all kanji, they will stay there till I feel ready!
Apprentice under 100
Guru under 400
Items per day under 100!
What I aim for, and recommend.
Guru falls, and makes apprentice HUGE! Guru are dangerous! XD
I could have just over 100 apprentice, do NO lesson, just to watch it go up to nearly 200 cause of Guru fails O_o
I should probably get better at using leech training too. I just review things to death XD
When I hit 180 I felt like dying XD
But it was probably more so cause they weren’t new items, but falling leeches =P
Fallen leech vs new lesson makes a huge difference in how the numbers feel too.
So many factors play a role. Even how you feel in a certain day. I’ve done 600 reviews in a day and felt great!
Now I feel all burned out at 150 XD
