Topic: Wartune / How to get high MDEF in KNIGHTS

Originally posted by JAYMZ78:

i do get killed by hades..worse than apollo i think at this point. and i agree 5k block is the minimum for it to work right. i just swapped back from crit 2 days ago. crit was 9909 right after the event. being only 153k br i was able to get to 3/4 sky trail without mire rune. not something i could do with wd. also i probably won alot of pvp fights i shouldnt be able to just because of the reliable crit rate with gaia. but, i feel better using wd again. its just feels less unstable. clearly there are many builds a knight could use swapping their resources around. my build is to face electro and light specifically.

“Only” 153k br? Mind if I borrow that? Some of us wouldn’t mind having “only” that br lol. And I beat up to 3/7 with “only” 130k br, with WD and no mire, so it can be done with WD.

Back to the topic, though, I agree with what most people said. However, I wouldn’t recommend giving up defense, as the attacks that sylphs do when not awakened are not blockable. I have patk and block gems on all my equipment, and then rotate between pdef, mdef, and hp gems for the other two slots.

Topic: Wartune / Some questions

I am a knight, but do not use a pan sylph, so, as squigylon, take it for what it’s worth.

1) I do believe the game “checks” your hp upon creation of the shield, so increasing hp while the shield is active shouldn’t make it stronger.

2) I do think these buffs will stack, but I know for certain that a 30% reduction combined with a 40% reduction will not be a 70% reduction, but a 58% reduction. Buffs will NOT stack additively, as the game checks not the amount of reduction, but the amount of damage remaining that “gets through” to the enemy. It’s confusing, so I’ll share this example, assuming the damage reduction does stack.

30% reduction = 70% of normal damage gets through
40% reduction = 60% of normal damage gets through

So total damage = 70% x 60% = 42% of normal damage = 58% reduction

Topic: Wartune / Will Crystals

Thunderbold, as I thought I had the same issue a few weeks ago, I checked something, and it’s not that your crystal resistance is 300, but that your TOTAL resistance is 300. This does not just come from crystals, but from your sylph as well. Except for Hades and Apollo (who I do not have and therefore cannot confirm their attributes), all sylphs “add” a total of -50 to your resistances. If your crystals add up to 300, add up your total resistance (the numbers found on the left side of the battle protection screen), as this may be less than 300. If so, there’s a simple fix: Simply unequip your sylph. You will get the will crystal slots, and once they are open, they won’t close again, even if your resistances fall back below 300 (so yes, you can put your sylph back on).

Hope this helps!

Worst thing for non-cashers about new events is having to calculate whether we have enough event items to get the event mount… and Im kinda tired after calculating for so many months now

Can any good Samaritan out there help do the dirty work? :)

Not sure if I did this right, but not counting if you do the reset trick, I see that NO mount is available for non-cashers. I calculated that 64 fate scraps and 49 wishing scraps are available. That would mean 81 wishing scraps to trade for mount, and the lowest cost one is 100 (the gentle beast). So unless they bring out more quests or do something interesting with those “exotic” things, then we’re stuck once again with nothing.

Topic: Wartune / [Guide] Patch 1.5: Part I

Originally posted by VagueKatti:

Why did they change the battleground time to be the same as redogra drake? Is that supposed to be the case and now must choose between the two? That seems awfully cruel, to put two events at the same time….

I thought there were TEN BGs you could enter with this patch. If one or two coincide with an event or two, is that a big deal? :)

The only reason I was asking is because the “daily events” tab differs from what you mentioned earlier. It says battlegrounds run from 13:00-15:00 (which many people will miss because of school/work) and from 22:00-23:00 (aka same time as redoga drake), not a continuous thing. So it seems like they’re making us choose. If I’m reading this wrong, please let me know. Thanks KnowingEyes for your quick response! :)

Topic: General Gaming / SCGMD4 Discussion - Achievements, Bosses, Secrets

For “Analysis Paralysis”, how long do you have to wait, and where do you wait? Do you have click several songs and appear like you are debating, or can you just click a song and leave for a bit? Also, after that, I think you have to actually play the song, but do you have to finish it?

Topic: Dream World / Official Bug Reports Thread (new)

Not sure if this is really noteworthy but thought I would mention it anyway. When doing the demon slayer quest, when you return after opening the three gates he originally asked, he responds with “The demons in the normal gats are too weak.” Obviously a simple typo, but things like that bug me and could turn some players off, so I thought I should report it.

Topic: MARDEK RPG: Chapter 3 / Search Here First For Answers

I’ve tried looking everywhere, but I can’t find where to get more silver ores. I currently have received two (one from the chest at the hermit’s cave and another from a peddler in Aeropolis), but I need three (Legion’s best weapon and armor need one each, as does the steel stole). Any ideas where I can get a third one? Thanks a bunch.

Never mind, I found another peddler in Aeropolis with a silver ore, and there’s one in the Sandflow Caves going to the Miasmal Citadel. Are there any others?

You can get one for returning the Gizmometer, there’s one in a chest located in the Dreamworld of Tainted Grotto, and mythril golemns will sometimes drop them.
