    I hit level 20 on my Archer today, decided to go Hunter.

    Arrow Shower is pretty much the best ability, ever. I went from barely getting B's in missions and now I'm getting S's. White Tooth or whatever his name is still takes me literally forever(10 minutes or so) to kill solo, though.

    Do you have multishot?

  • KajustaKajusta Registered User regular
    edited July 2009
    Yeah, I do.

    Fucker still takes forever. Also, is there a better way to go about getting set items other than farming the bosses that drop them? I seem to have really bad luck.

    No, yeah, I know about that.

    I've just heard some things about "loot chance" or something along those lines when you smash treasure chests and what not.

    But

    They look so cool

    Edit: What are your thoughts on Jesters? I did the Farrel job change quest last night and we had a jester in the group that pretty much just AoE'd him down in about 2 minutes. I've played with Thieves a little bit, and I like them, but I haven't made up my mind whether I want to keep playing my Hunter or not.

    hunter-> trapper are tied best in pvp, good in pve

    jester are tied best in pvp, and great in pve with aoes, good at boss

    aco are good in pvp/pve, great at bosses

    war can live for a long time in pvp, but suck at everything else

    battlemage are good for pve aoe

    ranger is ok at everything. assassin suck just as much

    so i hear/guess.

    This, basically!

    For PvE, the only attributes that matter are the ones that increase your damage output. This basically means you want accuracy on the slots where that's an available option, and strength/intelligence where not. Most sets are absolutely terrible in this regard, and the odds of enchanting them with a strength/intelligence bonus are... slim, to say the least.

    To start with, shoot for filling every equipment slot with strength/intelligence. Break down equipment you do not want into souls, then take "white" (unenchanted) armour to the soul enchanter. Cross your fingers and hope for a good bonus - the odds are against you. Since DEF and MDEF are meaningless, if you get a good bonus, you have a piece of equipment that could last you a long time.

    are you saying acc/str/int for hunters only, or those are good stats in general for every class?

  • MumblyfishMumblyfish Registered User
    edited July 2009
    Accuracy is an excellent stat for every class except Battlemages. Missing even once is the equivalent of losing hundreds of strength/intelligence. As long as you have less than 100% accuracy against whatever you are fighting, you need more accuracy. Battlemages don't need accuracy because their spells are perfectly accurate on anything within 15 levels of them.

    Strength increases physical attack, so it's the obvious go-to stat for Warriors, Archers and Thieves. It does abso-fucking-lutely nothing for Mages.

    Intelligence increases magical attack and MP. The MP increase is negligable, so it's the obvious go-to stat for Mages, and completely useless for everyone else.

    If you're at all interested in high-end PvP, other stats like vitality and dodge rate actually become useful. They're not worth worrying about until the experience curve gets vicious and it takes days of play to get a single level.

    I think I'm giving up my Hunter and going to get my Thief to Jester.

    My thief is just so much more fun to play.

    So are Jester/Thief sets actually worth buying if they are cheap?

    Most of them have agi/crit/acc as the set bonuses.

    fuck. someone give me an opinion on playing iah or waiting for thq's open

  • KajustaKajusta Registered User regular
    edited July 2009
    I really don't see the advantage of waiting for THQ to open unless they are increasing the experience rates or something, or unless you've got extremely bad lag on IAH.

    From what ive read on THQ's forums the exp rates are going to be higher than those on IAH.

    I'm level 25 on my Jester now and I fuck shit up.

    I don't get quite as many combos as my Hunter, but I get enough to get S rank and I complete missions faster than him. Also, I look a whole lot more stylish.

    hooray for soloing that crazy sewer doctor. in retrospect...probably a bad idea.

    also I'm thinking that resetting my skills so soon was a big mistake. fuuuuuck. I completely forgot that it's going to take forever until I get access to the meatier battlemage spells.

    After trying the archer and magician, I made a thief and I must say i'm having a lot more fun with it than the other characters.

    I want to go assassin but I hear it's only good for pvp?

    So, I made a thief character a few days ago and been just kinda messing around with him. Haven't formed any groups or anything. If you guys have any lowbie characters that are looking for a group, I'd be happy to group up. The thief's name is Varys.

    Do you group by account name or by character name?

    I highly recommend using joy2key or the other program whose name escapes me at the moment to setup a controller configuration. It's pretty nice.

    Anyone going to give the THQ OB a shot? I've yet to play this, and would join those on the international server, but this seems like a game where you want to avoid lag as much as possible (as compared to any game >_>).
