Topic: Wartune / Annoying Stuff from new patch

Highest possible GB victory reward is 1000 Insignias, 1000 Honor, 50 Whips, 1000 Guild Contributions. Pretty much dwarves the final reward for 1st place which is still 200 SC, 30 Whips.

Maybe they scale with party’s level. I have seen little to no difference between Green and Orange but with a 74-80 team each. Both had tons of HP and hit for 20-25k front row and 20k AoE. At least some attacks seem to be elemental because they hit each team member equally hard.

The green, blue and purple ones should have less HP at least. And if you can’t find someone with the same map, it’s all about cying for help. ‘Without much power’, well they have 20k AoE’s, that’s enough I think.

100 Devo Claim button: No chest icon, still need to click on the number 100 to claim, which has lead to many confusing reactions.

Topic: Wartune / BR Upgrade Guide

The formula for Astrals is somehow based on Astral Value but the term BR Rating is not quite correct since astrals like Goddess Blessing don’t increase BR yet if you unequip them, the rating number will drop.

Cons
-Massive lag everywhere, at least with my poor 4 Gig. Builds up slowly but steadily
-New Treasure Hunt event is boring and annoying, yet another event to find a party for. Also why are green treasure map monsters as strong as the other ones?

Pros
-Most have been mentioned, you can also do Jewel Hunt while blitzing.
-GB rewards have changed, you seem to get more stuff now (additional whips and guild contribution, 10 whips and 400 GC for 2nd place plus honor and insignias).

Nitpicky
-Lv 80 Leg set is listed under Equipment, not Legendary Equipment.

Topic: Wartune / world boss FU to knights

MattiaBava: Ok you didn’t even bother to read my post at all. DD costs 80 Rage, EDD 100, Thunderer only costs 50 Rage. That MIGHT have something to do with Thunderer’s shorter delay, like I was clearly pointing out.

Both mages and archers have a much much higher chance of getting Last Hit considering knights attacks load very slow. Archers have a 2:1 attack speed compared to knights and mages have a 1.5:1 attack speed compared to mages. Knights have 1:10 chance to get last hit over the other 2 classes.

That is complete nonsense. The only class which attacks faster is Archer, Knights and Mage have the same speed. Attack delay is rather based on skill cooldown and possibly rage cost. And everyone has the same chances at a Last Hit, just time your attacks right and start hoping. Just like roulette.

It’s basically telling you to spend more Time/Balens on red categories.

2. Ability to decide whether a MP run counts as your MP run for the day by checking a box. This allows you to do MP dungeons with others without worrying about them costing you your run for the day.

Has long been overdue but especially now when you get a Circuit quest where you must kill 30 monsters in The Badlands or something.

4. Team arena attempts reduced to 15. Insignia reward doubled. Pvp points earned unchanged. Single player arena attempts reduced to 10.

I read somewhere else that you can spend Balens to increase the solo attempts by up to 20 a day.

It’s only MORE than 500 Balens (aka at least 1000 Balens)

Edit: The in-game description is wrong, if you recharge 500 Balens, the gift pack will be in your mail.

There is a point where Knights will become very hard to kill and that point is one year + old chars and thousands of dollars invested.

Topic: Wartune / knights

“Comparable” Knights already have a slightly higher BR than Mages anyway (Knights get a bonus on PATK, Hp and PDEF, Mages only on MATK and MDEF). The still have low MDEF (for a tank at least), no direct heal, no backrow attack and a piss poor AoE. Lack of healing can be overcome with a strong Iris, at least unless you face a strong Gaia. So the Sylph choice can already make a big difference.

I would never pick Knight again.

If you see a Wartune Balens offer that appears too good to be true, then it isn’t, 100% guaranteed.

A motorcycle shop advertising a new bike for $1900 as a hot sale, then charging ANOTHER $4900 for the key AFTER the bike has been sold would be out of business very soon and face civil and federal charges.

I cannot upgrade my Cooling past MK-1 because the items I need to craft the missing components are out of reach.

I cannot upgrade my Drill Speed and Utility Slots at all because the items I need to craft the missing components are out of reach.

Ditto for Fuel Reserves past MK-1.

What gives?

Topic: Wartune / What is needed for a Mage to finish Catacombs?

Being Lv 50 and having both a Sylph and Templars close to your own Lv also helps a lot, they’re a huge improvement over Knights (which you shouldn’t level past 45 anyway unless you decide to camp).

33-35k BR is a good start for a try. And pick the right astrals of course.

Topic: Wartune / HP Astral sucks

Lv 80 Knight during Class Wars

PATK R
PDEF R
Block R
Crit R
Determination
Goddess Blessing
Deflection
Guardian Angel

Since the % Astrals don’t add BR, you may want to swap Guardian Angel for HP R.

I can see one situation where someone with 50k hp would have lvl 10 HP astral: Someone long term camping at low level. There are players who have decided that to compete without breaking the bank, they need to stay below a certain level (the big cashers will level past them and at low level there is less to spend on, so a bit more balanced). Granted, it would take a low level player a very long time to get lvl 10 red astrals, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. It just means it’ll be a long time before we see it and it will likely be rare (assuming most would get bored and either quit or level up before then).

Such a player would be a big idiot for not leveling PATK/MATK and PDEF+MDEF first. And since it would take a huge amount of time and Gold, that player would certainly be Lord Divine, at which point Lv 59 camping will become useless.

Topic: Wartune / Fun Fact About Recharge Event

Originally posted by kingasofnow:

No, you can’t. It’s in the ToS that they can terminate your account or do whatever with the game as they see fit. By playing you agree to ToS and thus it matters not what happens to your account or the game itself. When another game similar to the greed of wartune was pulled without warning by the devs, the big whales could cry all they want. Nothing changed and that was the end of it.

You don’t own those pixels, they do, you just pay for it with time and/or money. They will let you use it so long as cash keeps coming in from the player-base.

This is important to know regarding legal issues. Everything in the game is owned by R2, what they’re selling is just the right to use item xxx.

Hey Locky, finally free!

I sold my stuff and merged by astrals a while ago, keeps me from spending balens, now I just do solo stuff (1 man guild) but I might quit forever soon. Game has gotten stupidly expensive and time consuming otherwise.

1000 USD for a virtual +40 horse. I remember when a +50 mount was 300. Apparently R2 has figured out that there are enough dunces around to pay for anything just so they own it.
