Topic: Wartune / world boss FU to knights

I never get that flashing skillbar glitch when I fight with my dude, but I get it when I use sylph. Is there a certain trick to it? I’ve read forums and watched videos of people doing it, but it just doesn’t activate for me. Maybe because I’m in Germany and I play on the west coast server.

Let’s turn this thread into why aren’t Mages getting 100% slow on their Thunderers? We need this change to be able to compete with Archer and Knights who are still OP.

Topic: Wartune / All attacks are element based now.

screenshot? i don’t know of any in-game tooltip that gives a nice element-resistance % number.

the formula is from R2 forum’s official post (albeit the correction given is mine) and the numbers i shared are simply normal default RES numbers put into the formulas.

i have not bothered to do any kind of in-game data collection to figure out whether the figures match, because it’s tedious and difficult. probably need to fraps some battles to get the battle damage figures noted down easily, then u need to rinse and repeat for a bunch of different RES/attack-element combinations. ugh.

as far as i can tell, it feels close to the actual in-game outcomes, since my gaia really rips thru iris users; but becomes a lot more muted against other gaia users. against hades and apollo, i get that weakened feel, almost like they have a medal 2-3 ranks higher.

Topic: Wartune / world boss FU to knights

Yet knights and mages are still OP.

Way i see it this is a MUCH needed buff to archers, even tho would rather have other buffs instead.

In fact, archers should party just with other archers, and rest can go f themselves with their OPness.

Topic: Wartune / Less duel attempts

lol lock this topic quick before the flamers cascade in.

yes, you now get double the insigs per Group Arena battle: 30 for win, 10 for loss.

however, the Cross-Server PVP points per GA battle remains 15 per win.

if anything, this is a great change, since 30 battles was way too boring.

however, Solo Duels do NOT have the rewards doubled… at 10 attempts per day, you get double the exp, but half the amount balens/potions/etc.

So you have to wait on average 25 weeks (6 months) to buy a +20 mount that only lasts 1 week? Stupidest thing I’ve ever read on these forums, and that is saying something.

Topic: Wartune / world boss FU to knights

well, since the cat is mostly out of the bag now, let me just describe my current archer rotation.

first, try to open with DF — it makes a difference whether u land DF before WB’s first hit or not. (on that note, opening with DF in pve always makes a difference. if you land DF AFTER first hit, the target will get a 2nd hit in on you sooner.)

second, try to get a Delphic Sniper (DS) in. here, i have a method to trigger the flashing skillbar glitch, so i get to double-cast AS/MS until i fire off my DS. even if u have good rage, it may be best to save the DS for when u get 5 stacks of Battle Prowess (+10% dmg). i also try to proc the AS talent (Scrutiny +10% dmg) before DS where possible. i avoid brut rune here because i prefer using it for sylph.

third, get a second DF off before sylphing. the second DF effectively doubles the entire WB round — WB gets to hit you 5x before the special instagib, and now those 5 turns are effectively all stretched out.

fourth, sylph awaken. most people know by now how to activate the glitch, so if my skill order is done quickly enough, i will get 6-7 sylph hits in before WB kills me.

with these steps, my WB income increased from pre-patch ~2mil to my current ~2.5mil — a 25% increase.

i also note that the cd between rounds seems to have decreased to 25sec. not sure if this is an artifact of the DF-prolonged rounds, but that means i spend even less time NOT hitting WB.

This is DenOxy.

I care.

However before yesterday there was some bug in the night that ppl couldn’t get in after relog. I made a post about it. So I couldn’t do it.

Tonight I did it: no med, no crit, and Hades instead of Apollo (143k br). However when I check in the morning it difers.

heh when they s.crew up and have to repatch stuff frequently, it’s suddenly a “weekly” maintenance again. i recall going for 3 weeks without a single maintenance before the patch… even as daily events got laggier for no apparent reason.

well done on the phrasing.

at the risk of going even more off topic…

let’s say your WB lasts 15mins. and during that time, you die 10x before patch. that’s a minimum 9×30sec out of fight (4.5min). with the new DF fights (and i’m assuming you REALLY know how to DF to extend the fight… please don’t make me reveal le secrets) you die only 5-6×. that saves you 4 to 5×30sec out of fight (2-2.5min). if during that time, which is ~20% more time in fights, you can’t earn 10% more gold… YOU are probably doing something wrong. (this is based on rough calculations, but i definitely earned >10% more gold with new patch.)

p.s. if you guys really wanna know what i consider maximal efficiency for DF-extended fights, pm me.

Combining the nonslyph and slyph rounds could be advantageous. I frankly haven’t tried it yet. That’s the only way I can see spamming DF every round being desired. Main reason I haven’t tried it is that wb lag became abhorrent a few days after the patch (when we had the maint that restored the balen buff). So that could be why your gold gen improved so much.

Conversely, your gold gen could be improving that much solely because the rotation you used before the patch was bad.

The never changed any information, the only added more once the comp pack for everyone was announced. The 25 mount spirits and 300 whips were only for those that synthesized and they always said that. The first paragraph only said that everyone would receive compensation and it would be announced at a later date. Nowhere did it ever say everyone would receive the synthesized comp.

The second paragraph was never changed and it always said “For players who already synthesized” double clarifying the 25 mount spirits and 300 whips were only going to those players. You always need to read the fine print with these comp packs.

Archers are people too you know. We have feelings

Topic: Wartune / V.I.P Shop

this is second hand info. but from what i been told the Hot Tab in the shop is for VIP only. that maybe what that sentence is referring too. Tho due to be released in an upcoming patch is a VIP shop so that may be aimed at future content.

take it for what its worth

i’m not saying that it isn’t generous. and i do appreciate it. what i don’t appreciate is being told one thing and then having it changed at last minute.

And as for entitlement has nothing to do with it. what it has to do with is giving us the right information the first time. if this newly updated post was the first one i would have no issue. It would be the way it was and nothing more. again get peoples hopes up and pulling the rug out from under them.

oh wow now i can get that mount. what ah man. well thats R2 for you. tell you one thing and do another.
are you saying you like to be told things are going to be one way and then having them changed on a whim. wow then i got a car to sell you.

Topic: Wartune / world boss FU to knights

Guys. Don’t let this thread die. WB being able to be slowed is unfair.

In fact, I see it as such an advantage, it is causing this building jealousy within me against the archer class, which in turn, makes me a little reluctant to congratulate them when they do well in WBs. This WB DF is encouraging bad behavior and non-civil play, which is reason enough to stop the slow.

For example, I had the thought that I should stop doing MPDs with all archers until the devs stop showing such favoritism towards them, because I am just so jealous, and this jealousy occasionally has me wanting to see the archer class suffer complete destruction; but that’s just a thought (and a thought that scares me very much, because if such an occurrence did happen, many people would be hurt, which is something I do NOT wish for). Also, this is something I’d never practice (it just would be a hateful practice), but since I’ve had the thought, maybe others have had the thought as well, and since thoughts occasionally lead to actions, maybe others are discriminating against the archer class because of the favoritism.

And as a last little note: I’ll do MPDs with archers every day of the week. They are awesome (just so much so, I occasionally get infuriated with you guys).

PS: I really hope this post doesn’t cause any trouble, and I certainly hope it doesn’t cause any hurt feelings.

the other thread at one time said the compensation was for all. they changed it and added the 20+ compensation. as well as changing it so that only those that synthed the mount got 25 Mount Spirit and 300 whips

Originally it said all would get the 25 mount spirit and 300 whips. and there was no 20+ compensation. so thats the facts jack

My group for treasure hunt yesterday had a level 55. When he used his map, the boss we fought was level 55. When we used our maps (the rest of the group was all level 80), the bosses were level 80. Maybe it’s based on the level of the person using the map?

I’ve encountered lv70 monsters when a lv5x used their map, so it isn’t always the case. It seems to be either random (with some constraints) or buggy.

Hi Moderator, or someone that know’s anything at all!!

On V.I.P benefits, there’s a V.I.P Shop highlighted in a sentence.

But where is the shop???

This is the compensation for the maintenance. The other compensation is a separate issue and is only for those players that synthed the mount, so it shouldn’t really be posted under this thread, especially since it already has its own thread.
