    I'm actually pleasantly surprised at the variety I'm seeing in random multiplayer tera raids

    Lots and lots of box legends and belly drum Iron Hands/Azumarill or course, but a ton of people are bringing random support sets with moves like Helping Hands, Screech/Scary Face, a weather move to debuff whatever type the raid mon likes to spam, dual screens, Life Dew.

    Honestly just 2-3 super effective attackers and 1-2 supports seems like the way to go, so if you want to get into a specific tera raid but don't have something that works for that specific raid, bring something bulky with good resistances and spam helping hand + screech to let the Iron Hands or whatever murder it faster

    Oh my god.

    I had a glitch when I faced the Elite Four. In which the music bugged out and only looped the 10 second (or so) intro suspense tones the entire time. The Champion theme too. Apparently that can happen if the game's been on for a long while.

    I thought that was just what the music was; a weird ambient thing this time. I had no idea that it was a glitch.

    And it's a damn shame, because the full versions are very good.

    Sick of getting Gate kept by assholes running Meowth who cancel the raid if somebodys not using one.

    What the heck is this? What is the point of running Meowths? Not even Persian?

    What, is everyone trying to spam Pay Day to get extra money? There's better ways to do that, but that's the only thing I can think of for running Meowth.
    Heck, if you want money, they could make a team of Goldengho instead

    Its Perrserkers that use setup to "one shot". It is like the Iron Hands belly drum build or the Goldengho Iron Beam setup build. You Taunt, Screech, Cheer then all Iron Head together as Perrserker.

    Some people are gate keeping and unless you show Perrserker they swap in a low level (if not lead) or cancel raid if they are lead. Ive run into it a couple of times myself. Taking the Iron Hands or Goldengho into groups can cause problems as the setup is more. Belly Drum you lose hp and so if people start destroying the mob it will null stats. Gholengo you want to nasty plot 2-3x (2 for 5*) and Metal Sound 2-3x and the mob will null stat changes on itself early and on the group at 1/3 or so hp so can lose all your setup easy.

    does the 4th move matter? and what's the training spread, just atk and hp? or one of the defenses/speed?

    4th move has generally been Helping Hand. Sometimes the strategy is everyone Iron Head, sometimes it's everyone Helping Hand a single dude for one big attack.

    It's not so bad Austin John Plays has a really nice guide on Chest Gimmieghoul spawns and doing a circuit unlocks all the various watch towers as fast travel points. I had to do it twice because somebody in a discord asked to touch trade it for Dex credit and they stole my first one.

    For raids right now since i'm not bothering to make a HA Zerker and don't have a good Iron hands yet is a Espathra with Special attack EVs Clear amulet opportunistic ability and Lumina Crash.

    Lumina Crash is pretty decent support because it's -2 Special defense for use.

    So far iv only cancelled a single raid and that was a 5 Star Gardevoir where the people who joined locked in 2 dragonites It was a Fairy Tera Gardevoir

    Has anyone noticed that in a bunch of areas (particularly ones with cutscenes in them), there's what appears to be a Great Ball half-embedded into the floor? What's up with that? Is that like, a flag object that's poking through the models or something?

    To my understanding it’s exactly that. It has been common enough that every clip I’ve seen of the game has had the host comment on them (though they appeared as regular balls in most cases). Evidently the team didn’t have time to do the final pass on the game to make them invisible.

    I can’t wait to learn that the huge memory leak is caused by infinitely spawning diglets inside an unused building or something.

  • akjakakjak Thera Spooky GymRegistered User regular
    Should the Gimmeghoul chests respawn or something? Because I’ve never seen them come back after visiting the towers again. The lil coin guys do, but not the ‘mon itself.

    Yeah the chests will eventually respawn.

    I am pretty sure you can mess with the date out of game to get them to respawn.

    Also a cool little Gimmighoul factoid is that there is a chest spawn on a little cliff directly at the start of the game that i am pretty sure you can reach with a good ride-mon jump from the top of the light house it's a level 5 so a great early add to the team

    So I think what happens is for example when you start gym leader battles, they don't teleport you outside to the arena. Instead they change your surroundings from the lobby to the battle arena without actually moving you.
    So afterward when you're back in the lobby, it shows the ball you threw during the battle.

    Because the one time I used a pokemon in a Heal Ball against a gym leader, there was a Heal Ball in the lobby afterwards.

    it's apparently a chance to respawn. the lil guys have a much higher respawn rate than the chests

    Ahh, that actually makes a lot of sense. And I've seen weird shit in battles where like an NPC trainer in the background will disappear but not their pokeball, so there's just this floating pokeball flipping up and down. They must be forgetting to cull the pokeballs specifically out of the scenes for whatever reason which leads to weird shit like this.

    (also holy shit if that's actually what they're doing to load some of these areas no wonder the game runs like shit... I wonder how many objects are actually hiding culled away in the background taking up resources)

    I think what happens is each chest had a 5% chance to respawn every day, so you should have a few back every couple days

    Man, those elemental taurus are harder to spawn than I thought they would be.

    Guess they're rare.

    If you eat an Encounter Power Fire (Scarlet) or Water (Violet) sandwich, and go to a place that has large herds of Tauros, you should be able to find one relatively quick.

    Something I've learned is that when I'm having particular trouble finding a certain pokemon, the answer is usually sandwiches. For example, I spent about an hour searching fruitlessly for a Tandemaus, but eating a Tofu sandwich for Encounter Power Normal had me tripping over at least 3 of the guys.
    Ah yes! The sandwiches. Of course.

    Keep forgetting about the other buffs, been so focused on keeping egg power up.

    I had somehow concluded Montenevera was the last gym from descriptions and already done Glaseado. Sixth. No wonder it was so rough.

    ...of course I then did the final fights of the other two routes last night to see how those ended, so I'm now horrifically overleveled I guess for this last gym.

    I was in area zero with a violet friend last night and his exclusive mons wouldn't spawn and vice versa unless we were literally standing on top of each other.
    And then randomly I could start seeing him but he would never see me.

    Fun little trick that's been discovered.

    You can turn off auto-save and save in front of a shiny and when you reload the shiny will be there if you fail it.

    Well they've discovered that if you're playing with somebody and say you find a shiny and you're the host save in front of it and have your friend come and catch that shiny.

    Then let your friend save their game and reset yours

    when you reload that shiny will be back.
