I’m not much following all the new stuff in BA and there are so many modifications, new content etc..
Back in the days G5 was the best weapon it was really obvious : gather enough pixels and get it.

But now.. I just wonder.. What should I get at a very last objective ? Since there are so many situational items I just don’t see TEH ultimate weapon/armors to get :$
Well for armor I guess it’s still Chaos to enhanced, but it doesn’t cost much (and I’m still with HG atm x)).
So where do I/will I throw all my CM/pixels ?

Chaos Armor and a Fiend Glaive is still pretty far and ahead the best armor set (non withstanding some issues with an inability to use weapon unique enhancers.

All of my CM is currently going towards adding UnOb enhancment to my armor and throwing weapon unique enhancers on my dark ruler.

What weapon should I start saving up for now? Right now I have a G1 fused with another G1 with an item level of 73. BA rank: 270, level 5585

A small tidbit, I dunno if it’ll be helpful to people: If you’re coming in to the battle arena after playing other areas of the game and searching through your crates you find a grenade, fusing it with a strong machine gun makes a very nice low pixel/cm cost weapon for lower ranks. The low rank would be a problem for later use but it’s strong enough to get through a lot of content (I’m not entirely sure if there’s a correct order to progress through the arena, but it’s got me through the megaboss at least).

Since when are you able to fuse that bitch

On a unrelated note i have two questions.

1. Would it be better to get a set of Knightmare armor or save for gem of consistency as i have 52k SCM

2. At what factor does WM increase rare rate and what is the rare rate of LL.

Since recently. Just tested it, and new ones no longer have the Cannot Fuse tag.

How do you get Elite Nades ? PMBs ? I opened thousands of them but never found it.

Explosion crates.

The purple bonuses are always active right? They look very OP.

Why do you post the exact same thing 17 minutes later? Please do not.

They are active if you are wearing the equipment they are added to.

1) I’m not sure either’s worthwhile if you’ve got endgame gear already… Consistency gives 499atk/def at level 500, while knightmare doesn’t really measure up against HG/CHAOS/FGM sets.
2) WM doesn’t affect rare rate, it affects epic rate as described here but if you’re interested the rare rate in LL is 2.5%

Also, farming Fairy zones in WM with an epic rate set works nicely – you can get your unob and scm at the same time!

As a fuse with Chaos gear or censor gear, even FGM its stats are pretty awesome for being +0

Does anyone know what the bonus is for a lvl 500 gem of constancy? Getting it to lvl 500 is a pain

At which ascension is worth wearing Dark Ruler? I mean, I’m on my 4th ascension but it’s still better using FG in overall. Also, is there any other armor better than Chaos that allows me to Idle HC NCI efficiently? I haven’t fused it with another chaos set, but is possible idling HC there with Chaos+EC/Wiz for better tiers?

The dark ruler is worth using when it is full length or even sooner.

I don’t know about your tier armor idea, but chaos/chaos armor has worked well for me to idle NCI HC with no problems at all. But the speed isn’t really good until you hit the same or greater level than rawrquaza

With the nerf update, bonus amounts have changed because of a tier revamp, so I’ve got a question: Is Equipment Attack still more optimal than Attack Power? And if so, by roughly how much?

I ask because tiers were butchered, making rank 500 now buffed, but anything in the 200-300 range ranks nerfed. Now, instead of 100+ equipment attack on a piece of Chaos armor with 5 unob enhancement, we’re looking at around 50, while Attack Power is +3468. Is it still worth considering changing to Equipment Attack, or has the difference been narrowed enough that Attack Power will be basically the same in effect now?

I really don’t feel like it’s worthwhile. The gem of Luck is much nicer, since it gives +75% droprate at max level as well as giving a 40% chance for max value on pixel or coin loot, and it doesn’t lose its stats when you unequip it.

Is 499 attack/def the only benefit? Since the description hints at a special bonus at rank 500

I think that max level constancy gem gives a passive autoloot buff. Or so I’ve heard. I don’t have one yet, so I dunno.

You increased the stats in the wrong order. First you have to strip yourself of all evasion, increase defense and HP as high as possible and let yourself get hit. That will get all the other stats back to 0, but that’s the only way to get attack increased. After you get attack to max, get your evasion back in, and let enemies try to hit you, to increase accuracy. Just remember to kill the enemy after some 30 seconds, because their stats increase with time, so if they get an attack in and it’s strong enough it’ll decrease the attack stat.

From there, the rest is just about hitting really hard (use heal on the skull thing) and not missing, that’s not that difficult.

HP, defense, and accuracy are all maxed or right under maxed. Evasion was maxed but it is plummeting fast. Attack is high enough to get me a level 8000 monster. Got to 7924, but as I said evasion is plummeting fast. If my evasion held up, I’d have finished this quest today, but it’s going in reverse now. Levels dropped 200 points.

Gem of constancy is stupid. I wouldn’t dislike it so much if there was a way to switch bonuses on equipment without unequipping, but being punished for doing so just goes against everything we’re pushed to do by the way the game has changed. Now it’s all about fine-tuning to each occasion, and boom, there’s an accessory that says “Bitch, don’t you dare change anything!”. It’s just confusing and weird.

Ahh, you’re right, it does give a constant loot magnet at max level too, though that means you’d have to get it to max level with something other than DR equipped for it to do any good. Still not really worthwhile imo.

Does the gem of constancy stay at rank 500 once maxed?

 
Flag Post

no, it still goes back to r1 if you change any piece of equipment.

Thank you, I guess I won’t try to level it again (since we have to equip the SoA to ascend, thus resetting the gem rank).

All Equip Attack never was the best solution. It was just the most convenient. A combination of both could do better even before v1500 (just by a small amount though).

Since attack power and equip attack multiply each other in the damage formula, adding the bonus value to its corresponding stat and multiplying will show which one is better. Not forgetting Attack Power adds to base stat.
