The official newbie question thread!

Recommended Posts

I feel like I should know this already, but resistance does help in PvM correct? Just wondering why everyone I talk to in game asks why my PvM characters have 30-50% in resistances. I built them for both PvM/pvp, should I make my nubs a PvM set for more damage output? I figured res helped with basic survivability in both types of combat.

Resistance does have an impact in PvM. However, having higher damage output from a set with weaker resistance outweighs the benefits you gain from survivability. In most cases, you will have killed the enemy before a character dies due to a lack of resistance. This is further the case with a smart team composition that allows for further damage reduction or heals. 

 

There are certain instances where having res in PvM is useful, for example, solo quest fights or the Erazal fight. But it's normally easier just to stack these on a case by case basis with trophies or pets.

To add on to what Rob said, it's usually more efficient to stack damage rather than resistance on a character depending on the character's role in the fight. For example, if you're playing a tank Panda or a lock Feca, those two characters should have good resistances across the board. But if you're playing an Iop whose main job is to destroy enemies with Tumult through portals, then that Iop really only needs to have one thing: a fuckton of Int. Resistance is secondary.

 

Now, if you're like me and bad at this game, resistance helps you recover from fuckups because one or two spare hits you could have avoided if you played better won't doom you. But if you're actually good than you can just build for damage and delete things before they become a reasonable threat to you.

 

I'd still recommend adding resistance to sets though. It never hurts to be careful.

unlike pvp where enemies can actually blitz u turn 1 with numerous attack patterns if low res, in pvm mobs are limited to approx. ~3 spells which usually have different limits (low range or minimal range, linear, # casts per turns) as well as a limited ai, so in pvm it might be possible to avoid being hit partially or fully hence making ur 50% res unnecessary in most of pvm cases (which is even more true with 2.42 endgame nerfs), so in pvm investing in dmg is usually better than sacrificing dmg for unneeded res, not to mention that a glasscannon set w/o tons of res is usually cheap (unless u have dope set with dofuses/exos/mages allowing both dmg and high res)

 

and also, they say best defence is offence, if u kill mob before it plays its turn (aka blitz or almost blitz) it will mean it wont have a possibility to deal dmg to ur chars at all;

 

but anyway since u already have a %res set and u also pvp - u don't need to change ur set into more dmg and less res - since as i said dungs are nerfed so not having top dmg isn't lethal;

 

tho i agree 30-50% res for every char in pvm is overkill unless u are playing full tank char like panda :^)

 

tldr res is not bad just not always necessary in pvm

What triggers Replicaphid's instant kill?

Share this post

Share on other sites

just from my memory it's either: simply too much time/turns have passed; or it's 3 turns after u've killed 1 of mobs; or there is 1 of its clones who can apply a ko in 3 turns if it hits cc to u (the real one?); or maybe if u are being hit by several of the clones;

 

in any case the ko is never instant but delayed in 3 turns, u would receive a buff effect stating u'd get killed in 3 turns, so usually u should when u die so that u can prepare for it;

 

anything above was from my personal experience, i remember i could solo replicaphid with pre-revamped sacri by just finding a tile with 1-2 adjacent tiles and tank 1-2 clones while others would run away - in this case i wouldn't get ko for a long time, but if i cooped some clone to run away and tanked another clone i would probably get a ko effect (provided that clone hit me in cc)

Top kek nerf. Thx Ankama :^)

And I got a new question for you guys:

If I buy myself (let's say a [Guild Shield]) a Shield with an AP or MP on it, will it work like a fully normal item? Are there any restrictions left (PvP resists stat only or something) or is this now safe to do? Thinking about going 12/5 instead of 11/5 by just buying a +AP Guild Shield. 
Thank you!

Rather simple question, does Cra provide a signifiant advantage over every other class for solo leveling?

 

Currently questing on my 40 Feca on Illy. Considering swapping to cra for speed but only if its a rather large improvement.

Rather simple answer, yes. Especially on newer servers because of the ridiculously powerful low-level Agi equipment.

It used to get 10 Vitality when killing those monsters, they've changed it to 1 Vitality with 2.46.

but if it gained fixed 10 vit each time it got required kills how come it has 295 vit and not a multiple of 10 ???

I’ve done the Bonta alignment quests, and I am now alignment level 20. I have joined the Valient Heart Order. I have obtained the title.

 

How do I rank up within the order, and obtain the ornaments? Is it by simply completing more alignment quests?

 

EDIT: I spoke to the king and obtained my first ornament.

Keep completing Bont alignment quests given by the guy you did the first 20 quests for. Then after another 20 have been completed, you'll have to do more Order quests for the order that you chose. You'll also get a larger ornament at that time.

Ah I see, I get the order quests at the end of each 20 alignment quests. Thanks!

What's the quickest way to lvl magus now? I've just been manually maging stuff to max, nuking it and doing it again basically. It's fairly tedious though.

Pretty much that, but try and prioritise higher power runes. Crits, heals, damage, wisdom. If you can find items with multiple of those it'll go a fair amount quicker.

hey bro, i did this achiev in few hours on the monoacc server, with the comp cra/enu/ouginak/eca and eni.

To beat the missiz/klime/nileza we use that: was a easy way to win, we did the 3 dungeons without die.

To beat Sylargh we used that: We won with just one fight, be carefull with the nyoro/dakid. You cant hit on ligne of the monster, because you'll be atract and the reflect + krasso will kill you.

To beat count was a little hard, we died around 5 times, but with panda is easier, we used that. Just go far from Count, running from their black gliph, because the payo wll atract 1 square.

Good luck!
