    Forget money, now that I'm in EQ4 all my character EXP books are gone and I'm running the Caelyx now just to get the 4th member of the team to 67 with the rest.

  • MadicanMadican No face Registered User regular
    The level up trick still works. Brought everyone to Level 67 with 380 EXP on their bar left over. Full cleared all the daily enemies and this is what it ended up being:

    Looks like it'll take a little longer than the previous ascension but still plenty worth it in regards to how many EXP books I'll be saving long term.

    After getting Jing the other day I figured I'd fish for his light cone a little. Threw 10 passes at the banner and got it.

    Did I win the game?

    Honestly, it's a pretty big deal. Jing with his light cone is strong enough even in Memory of Chaos that you can pretty much let him do all the damage in the team, especially if you're also using Tingyun.

    Given of course that he's still very strong even without it.

  • MadicanMadican No face Registered User regular
    If you're using Tingyun with Jing you can also make use of the LC that boosts the damage of same element units on her

    Did a couple runs in the Knight/Lightning relic domain. Seems even at TB 50 still not a good idea to farm relics, only one 5 Star is guaranteed with a decent chance at two.

    Still, I needed the gear and it turned out alright. Gepard and Jing both got enough pieces to fill in the holes for their sets and even Fire TB got an upgrade. Definitely still room for improvement but this'll last until TB 60 easy with everyone else using Musketeer set from weekly Echoes clears

    Hit 50, and it takes a full day of stamina to ascend each character. Plus used up every bit of experience in storage just to level two characters. If I finish farming that before 60, it's back to traces.

    Looking forward to eventually playing the actual game in a few months. Maybe even looking at relics!

    So, based on the Herta Store, we can safely presume which Path the MC will be gaining when the current world finishes.

    Any speculation on what Element she'll get? I'm thinking Imaginary might be most likely, maybe Lightning. Ice is less likely. I think we can rule out Quantum and Wind.

    Based on the Herta Store? The entire Luofu storyline has been pretty clear what the next class change is going to be considering all the lore about Lan fighting the Abundance.

    As for element, my money is on Lightning

    Yeah, the Herta Store. There's 3 LCs available: Destruction, Preservation, Hunt. 3 points makes a line and all that.

    Yeah, I thought it was obvious just because we're on Hunt planet.

    Anyways, element's a toss up to me as there's nothing to go off of for it imo.

    I agree with this guess, most people have Seele and everybody has Dan so getting Quantum or Wind would be weird at this stage of the game when there's tons of empty path/elemental combinations. You never really know with MHY, though.

    Also it would be hilarious if it was Abundance instead. That'd solve the two-healer problem with MoC too, most people don't have Bailu.

    Giving people another healer by taking away their tank is a bit messed up.

    Imaginary damage abundance healer would be great. Instead of a bat or a lance your new weapon can be a syringe.

    I mean that’s literally Luocha so that seems unlikely. (except coffin instead of syringe… so maybe not the best healer design when you think about it)

    He is just carrying around his biggest failure to remind him what's at stake. (That's not a spoiler since I don't actually have any idea of what's in the boooooox)

    My guess for what's in the box
    Jing Yuan's teacher. That was waaaaay too much work put into that character art for one brief video, she's definitely showing up again at some point. Possibly even Jing let the Disciples do this stunt all so he can take advantage of it to get the real Fruit of Immortality and cure his teacher of mara sickness by "completing" her immortality. This would also explain why Luocha says he doesn't really know the person in the box, he only met her briefly before.

    Ugh I breezed right through 5-2, but 6-2 is killing me. I’ve done like four runs in a row where I die when cocolia is at like 30% hp left in phase 3. I just can’t seem to get all the blessings for a smooth run and seal the deal. I had one that was looking great, but then drew an unavoidable curio that replaced my carefully selected synergistic curios with random garbage right before the boss. Ugh, some more levels on everyone will help I’m sure, just frustrating since I know I’m close.

    so I used my first 8 herta tokens to get the hunt light cone, and have been holding off on spending more. I'm up to 9 again atm.
    Kind of unsure on the best option. I have a s2 swordplay as well so one hunt char is using that and one is using cruising (my two main dps are seele and yangqing right now).
    I pulled the gepard preservation cone from standard banner on fire mc and day one of my new life on march and i don't really have a destruction character I care about.
    so I feel like I am either just fully superimposing cruising or maybe doing it with a slight offset buffer so I don't need to wait the full 8 weeks to be able to purchase another whole cone?
    idk, probably over thinking it. but I don't expect to get another pres/des character anytime soon based on what we know for upcoming banners.


    also now that i have 6 chars at 67 I have discovered it is time to start the xp book farming lol.

    After having played with him for a couple of days my hot take analysis of Jing Yuan is that he's so good because his followup attack is so good.

    The slightly more nuanced version: of the 3 other erudition characters the only one I enjoy using for general use is Qingque, because she doesn't have followup attacks at all. Himeko and Herta I initially liked when the game let me try them, but the triggers for their follow-up attacks are so infrequent you just don't get to take advantage of their specialization.

    Main team to 70 and 3/4 cones to 70 too. Looks like next week is traces and secondary team.

    Lucked out and picked up Jing, noticed his stand counts as a followup attack and I was thinking about building a team around that. Pretty sure Seele's 50 extra turns count as followups too, is there any way to run Team Followup and buff it accordingly?

    Seele's bonus turns do not count as followups, sadly. No elation nonsense with her.

    The best characters for running Elation follow up stuff in SU are definitely Jing, Clara, and March, as they all fire them off constantly. Probably don't want to run all three at once, but Fire MC, March, Jing, Healer probably works. (Relies a lot on elation buffs for damage, so you can swap Fire MC out for a support too. The synergy with March is useful though as any shield triggers her followups)

    It's basically 1 follow-up attack every 3 weakness breaks. Which is good on trash packs, but nearly worthless on boss fights unless they summon a lot of easily breakable adds.
    Compare to Jing Yuan who spams it every turn.

    Right, so team 1 is Clara, March 7, ?, ?

    Team 2 is Seele, Ting Yun, Natasha, ?

    Bronya needs to go somewhere. Everything else I have is 4*. I'm trying to decide how to balance two core teams out of this, I'm pretty solidly stuck on Memory of Chaos 2.

    Edit: Oh, And Clara, Seele, Natasha and March are all in the 67-70 range.

    What is this I don't even.
  • ReynoldsReynolds Gone Fishin'Registered User regular
    Problem is, you want Clara and March together, but with only one healer and no Gepard you want March and Fire MC together to make up for that. But Fire MC and Clara don't work well together.

    are some blessings contingent on having other blessings? I am missing about 10 that i've still never seen.

    I'm also missing 4 curios but 3 of them are birdhouse shaped so I'm "pretty sure" they're from events I need to stumble on and one is an orb so it might be an error code.

    Have you grabbed all the modifiers to the path resonance? Those count (out of 22 per path, 18 are "normal", 1 is resonance and 3 are resonance modifiers) and some of them sort of suck so they are easy skips if you are doing harder SU runs.

  • The WolfmanThe Wolfman Registered User regular
    I know at least one curio is event specific, so I can only assume there are others.

    I know at least one curio is event specific, so I can only assume there are others.

    The "damaged code" event alone has three different curios. Another event lets you take a (random?) negative curio for cash, so that event might have more than one as well. I'm usually busy trying to grab enough blessings for my main path to go check out events so I haven't seen all of them I'm sure.

  • The WolfmanThe Wolfman Registered User regular
    I forget the specific details, but the one I'm thinking of, it's a parasite that infects your highest atk character, they get a big atk buff but also lose 20% health a turn, and if they die then the "buff" transfers to another character. So yeah, big time high risk/high reward sort of thing.

    Hmm it's hard enough getting the big cool banner five star, but then they also have these #gamechanger eidolons that would power them up so much. It feels like I'm supposed to keep burning tickets to try and...oh. OH.

    Honestly, if it's anything like Genshin... plenty of 5* characters are going to be really strong without any duplicates pulled. They just go from "really good" to "nothing in the game can remotely challenge you" with duplicates.
