    The "What gear should I use" thread

    Decided to go Str/Agi on my Cra. Made a set for 199ish grind, I'd love feedback on it http://dofusfashionista.com/s/shared/NDA3NDUyOXEiCHc_/ Main things I wanted to achieve: relatively cheap until 200 set over 1100 str, over 900 agi (inc. power) over 100 MP reduction Appreciate input to improve ont the set

    The "What gear should I use" thread

    Thanks for reply. The linked set shows nothing except Dofuses - could you please check on your end as well? Also what is your reason for dropping MP reduction? It's the single thing that keeps me alive in PvM, having close to 100 MP reduction allows me to solo mobs comfortably with Poison Arrow using idols.

    The "What gear should I use" thread

    Came back after 3 years. Str Cra, currently using this set https://imgur.com/W7jPBlJ I've had this set since a long while, wondering if I should upgrade anything now that I'm 180+. Priority is Str>MP Red>Wis at 11AP+ Or perhaps I should wait till 200 for a new set? If so, Class: CraBuild: Str, although open for hybrid Str/Cha or Str/IntKamas/time available: 15-20MK, on a budget.Current team: Cra soloLvl range: 200Extra comments: PvM mostly, if Str Cras are viable in PvP I'd like to branch out a little
  4. Hey there, been away from Dofus for 3 years+, came back to find out a lot has changed. Rushu is no longer, spells have changed, and lots of new content. Currenlty I'm playing a 173 Cra, looking to join a guild to do some dungeons/xping so I can get into 190+. IGN is Verlaine, look forward to seeing you!

    Complaining

    But it is. Negative attitude is toxic and contagious. If you did nothing, people will almost always go down the path of less resistance - which is in a downward spiral. We're evolutionarily wired to be more receptive to pain than to pleasure. Let me ask you a question, if you saw a newspaper headline saying "BEAUTIFUL DAY TOMORROW, HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND", would you react to it to the same level as if you saw a headline like "WORST DAY AHEAD, PREPARE FOR GALE STORM WINDS ON WEEKEND". Seriously, who gives a toss if the weekend will be great, you probably already knew that. You're not going to be bothered reading the article. But if there's a disaster ahead? Heck you better read it. This is the same logic that has kept human beings ahead of themselves as primates in the evolution. If there was a tribe that did not value pain as much, they would be wiped out because of their lack of perceptiveness and never have the chance to pass on the genes to the later generations. And hence you and I will never be here. Only those who had an heightened sense of pain would survive. So these are important characteristics, but is it important in the modern life? We don't live as cavemen anymore! So if you allow yourself to be reacting to the environment like this, you will live life on other peoples terms. And most people do, and they live a miserable life. Turn on the TV and you can get plenty of negativity. Journalism has to do that to survive - it's what people are wired to read. But just because it sells, does it mean that you have to be helpless and vulnerable to whatever the environment hurls at you? No. You can choose what you are exposed to. Turn off the TV. Cut off negative people. Stand guard at the door of your mind. And like I said, I'm not here to stop, moderate, or even judge who complains here. You can do whatever you want. I don't bother to check how old each poster is, but I will treat them as adults, and it is their own responsibility - I don't need to tell them what's right and what's wrong. And those who complain - they are the only ones who know that they are giving up their own power to control themselves. It takes real emotional muscle to not be negative in challenging times. It is so easy giving up and being bitter like every other wimp and loser out there in the world. I also believe the best study of life is "how it is". Not "how it should be". So am I out there to preach that everything is always good and there's nothing bad out there? Of course not! See things as it is. Not things better than it is, and not things worse than it is. And it is absolutely important that you do not see things worse than it is, because otherwise I have to ask you, why are you trying to make things worse than it is? I'll give you an example. 1. You say hi to your colleague. 2. She doesn't reply your greeting. 3. You may now think that she is having a bad day and doesn't even want to bother talking to you because she's so busy. Do you see what's wrong in this example? Most people think that the formula is: Reality> Emotion. As in, something happens in reality, then you feel the emotion associated to it. There's one ingredient missing. The missing part in the formula is: Reality> Interpretation > Emotion. Somewhere in your brain you made an unconscious choice that whatever reality that happened to you is bad, and therefore you labeled it as your colleague having a bad day. All that could have happened is that she just didn't hear you because you spoke softly. Or she hates your guts and doesn't want to talk to you. Or you were so sexy that she was too shy to say hi to you. Whatever. The fact is, it can be anything until you know the truth. And people associate negative interpretations because its easy. If you want to further yourself, it is prudent to see things as it is, not worse than it is, then finally better than it is. Because if you're a leader, in your group/peers/organisation or just want to be able to lead your own life, you cannot take people to where you haven't been. If you cannot see how the piece of information will be beneficial for you, or act on it to make a positive difference there is zero direction in your life, and you'll just be a victim of circumstances.

    Complaining

    People get to a point in IV and Dofus that they do this for recreation and find a way to complain. By all means if you do want to complain, do so, and I'm not here to stop, moderate, or judge you but I have to wonder if you complain about how hard RL is, how much you hate your job, etc, etc, why indulge in a recreational activity that gives you another opportunity in frustration? Complaining is addictive, and despite its negativity there's an intoxicating thrill about it... just a bit like drugs, binge drinking, and smoking. Walkaway if it is taking from you more than you are experiencing joy out of it. No one is holding a gun to your head to keep on playing Dofus. Instead of looking at things you hate about this game/community/people, look for things that you like about it. Even if you think you just 100% hate it, you might have a mixed bag of positive and negative associations. Just like if I had a camera at a party, where one side there was a brawl and the other side people were having a good time - and if I handed you the pictures only capturing the brawl, what would you think of the party? Pictures depicting of people throwing punches, getting wasted... would you call that a positive or negative experience? Unless you're delusional, it's a terrible experience! Your choice of focus is the camera's lens, and people are doing exactly this to amplify their negative emotions. They dig deeper and deeper into negativity, picking up details of the horrific picture they didn't even notice in the beginning and feeling worse about it. But what if you could do this to the opposite side? The beauty of the human mind is that it is powerful. It is powerful enough to hurl you in a frenzy and destroy you, or you can use the same power to empower, feel positive, and make life an exhilarating process. So turn your camera's lens to the good side. Notice the things you liked. As you shift your focus to the things you like, you'll find details in the picture that you never noticed. The more and more you do this, the more you get locked into a positive cycle. Ever heard of the reticular activating system (RAS)? If you haven't, it's a simple concept that you can experience it right now. You have 10 seconds to look around the room to count the number of things that's blue. 10, 9, 8, 7...... got it? Now focus on this screen Did you get it? Because when you focus on things, you only see that. Same thing happens if you get a car and start noticing all the other same cars on your road. So if you're so focused on the negative, you can only pick up negativity. Start focusing on the positive and you will find details that were you would never have been able to pick up. And this isn't just the game, it goes for your life too. So there's my complaint on complaining that was intoxicating to write
  7. Touche. Such an elegant post, I like how you have framed it on the positive side. I would definitely like to read a thread about why people still play, what features they like better. I don't regularly play anymore because my interest wanes after a few hours of play, and grinding puts me off to refocus on RL things. But when I come to IV I look for a reason to play again, and it's the enthusiasm of the community that makes me want to play again.

    So much gold. Magnificence doesn't fade. But this reminds me that we went from "pwned" to "rekt". Oh the time its passed...
  9. Feca named Arslarn. Then I realised people call me Ars for short <_< So I made Valfreze, Val for short. I probably spent 10 hours reading for 1 hour playing, read every single guide available on Fecas at that point so specialised in Int and never looked back

    Post your Guts

    I use Elven Shovel, double steals and AoE. How much dodge do you get out of the set to justify Escapist? I personally used Voyager for that extra MP and ditched dodge and lock all together in light of Stabil. For tighter fights, I also use Xa Cloak, Xa Shovel, and Jackanapes/Ochre. 12 AP allows Mel Mel Drunk Tipple.

    1 Versus 1 Kolo

    Bring on 1v1, faster match ups and less decline when you only have one more person to sign up. To heck with balancing, I lose nearly all of my 3v3 when I do it with randoms and I don't care. It'll make it more accessible than trying to challenge someone at a zaap or -1 0. They can just make it with no or little reward, like honour points and wings. Purely aesthetic

    If you can control like... 1 summon.... for 1 turn... with a 5 cd.... can that really be overpowered?

    New Feca Builds/Strategies

    Int Fecas I think should be mid range, Str Fecas have a niceish position doing GoB beneath you. I tried the 199 Int/Agi build and was underwhelmed. Nomarrow with Otomai and Eculture fillers, 1/2 crits on Eternal. With my dodge around 50 ish I couldn't dodge much, 100 MP reduction took jack all unless I did Lethargy + Burning Glyph, and 5MP was not enough. Also HP is terribly low using Nomarrow. Being confined to fixed range does suck. With 200 endgame, I imagine AgeOld will come into the equation but it depends if you like to be forced into mid range combat. I would have needed 11 AP 6 MP, 100 dodge, 100+ MP reduction, 3.5+k HP, 1/2 crits to be happy about it and the price of Ochre/Exos/Turq was not worth it if 200 Omni was better.

    osa change

    I think they should have the ability to have total control for a limited time. Like Boombot, you can only control your summon for 1 turn or something. And perhaps another spell where your spirit takes over the summon's and you leave your body vulnerable just passing turns so it doesn't break any lore/gameplay.

    New Feca Builds/Strategies

    Guys what do you reckon of a lock Feca before pre 200 Omni sets? For PvM http://dofusbook.net/fr/personnage/fiche/134297-val/2.html 119 Lock, ~700 on GoR Never played my Feca as a tank and generally didn't like tanking F2, is tanking F3 and Dimensions viable?
