Topic: Realm of the Mad God / LordScimitar's Journal to Maxed out Char

I have not quit. But, I’m tired of making the same posts over and over. Only going to update when I’ve hit something NEW.

I did finally max a stat on one char, and was closing to maxing 4 different stats.

Then, I teleported to someone. Did not realize they were THAT close to the Forgotten Avatar. Got hit by confuse, so instead of immediattely running AWAY, I ran into him, and died instantly. With a char that had finally maxed a stat and could easily take down sprite worlds and was doing decent in godlands.

Another char, another bad death, bleh.

Finally saw the 2 hero slots sale and jumped on it. So now I have 2 new hero slots and thus a lot of storage and a way to farm fame when I need it.

Starting another Knight, and with my 2 backup defense pots, and a snakeskin backup shield, I have Archon Swod and Vengeance Armor and I’m ready to go again.

Let me guess. You are thinkin this is going to be one of two things:

1. Died, started again, same positive attitude, same chance to fail again
2. Ran snake pits, a lot of them again, yawn, boring.

Well, you’d be wrong!

I had a stat EXPLOSION. I started off the day doing snake pits, as expected, trading for defense pots 2:1, yawn. It became easier and easier, so I got braver. Found a Phoenix, and completely soloed him. One achievement, completed. I went to god lands. I found Limon. Struggled against him a few times, but now, beating him somewhat handidly, but I don’t consider it as safe as the snake queen was at the end. She’s easier to run from.

Right now, I’m staying in the godlands. If a snake pits drops because I ventured just outside, fine, I’ll do it. It’s a guaranteed speed, maybe even 5 (most treasure rooms I’ve seen I think is 2-3 but I’ve heard there can be 4). I can’t be in the godlands indefinitely, but I can survive there…somewhat. I respect Medusa and Leviathans. I respect all the gods, but those, I consider the most dangerous. I take nothing for granted and I’m not afraid to run like a coward or flee to the nexus.

As you can see if you compare my stats, other stats are going up as well. I’m venturing into Sprite Worlds and Haunted Cemeterys, but life pots cannot be found there, so that won’t be going up for a while. I may venture into a few more 3-4 difficulty dungeons, but if I do, I’ll take them very, very slowly, and probably solo so I can creep ahead and not worry about other players drawing in monsters. I enjoy playing far more than I do trading, so right now, if I find a pot, I’m drinking it. Once I get close to maxing stats, then I’ll get back to trading to be more efficient. But for now, I’m a thirsty beast, and ready to keep marching forward!

Oh, and I’m close to the first time ever in completing the quest to 400 fam, and have the highest stats I’ve ever had, and it’s looking real good at the moment. Now, I only have to do one thing: Not screw it up.

Since I’ve got some readers, time to make use of them. Can anyone help me with some questions?

1. The gift chest confuses me. It used to start at 8 days. I’d die sometimes and the day counter would start over. Othertimes, it wouldn’t. Well, this last time I died, I created a new char, it didn’t start over. Then the next day…it had. But THIS time, it started over at 10 days, instead of 8. Any idea why?

2. Is there any SINGLE bullet that can one shot me with my current defense/hp? I know some shotgun blasts would, especially if I get right on top of a Shatters boss or something and eat everything, but I mean a bullet. What I would like to do when testing the waters of a new dungeon/quest boss/etc, is to purposely take a single shot at full health and see what happens. It’d be a good way to judge if I’m ready for them or not.

3. Can anyone give me a quick rundown of pot to pot trading? I know 2 speed = 1 defense, but that’s all I’m real sure of.

Thanks for the help, and I hope I can continue entertaining you all with this journal. Now, back to some god slaying!

So, once again, I jumped back on the horse. After taking a day off. And once more, I’ve maded it father than I’ve ever made it. My defense is the highest it’s ever been. My equipment is equal to the highest it’s been—minus the ring. My fame is higher than any character I’ve had. Snake pits are getting easier as the snakes Stheno summons and the large ones in the dungeon are doing less and less damage and I’m going through them quicker and quicker.

I completely SOLOed the phoenix, which I’m quite proud of. Those dang ogre kings started dropping snake pits at a higher rate. So, I completed a new objective which I had never done before.

I haven’t been posting about eggs. I’ve gotten about a doze or so here and there. I’m using a common feline that has heal and I’ve leveled it to 15. So far no pet I have has both heal and magic heal so I’m just using it for now. I don’t fully understand the pet farm mechanics, and I don’t think I’ll level it that high, just a little bit here and there until I start gettin enough pets and have an extra sacrificial fame gaining character to make it worth it.

Death…again. I didn’t even know leviathans were nearby when I was hunting for a snake pit then BAM. Of all the gods, I hate those the most. *

I MAY be at the highest fame I’ve ever gotten too. If not, it’s very close. I feel like I made much better progress than my stats/equipment says. I had a couple people jump into the snake pits with me and unfortunately missed a couple of qualifications from Stheno/Treasure room bosses and so I didn’t have as many speed pots as I should. Also, I upgraded my equipment a decent degree. The problem is the time it takes trading, and my limited inventory. As soon as I get 2 speed pots, I have to sell them. I can’t wait until I have 8 then go do trades for 20 minutes. I have to do trades after pretty much every snake pit.

I am running through snake pits much faster now. Pretty fearless though sometimes when I break through and there is a wall of big snakes my health does drop. Can’t wait to get enough defense to reduce them down to 1 damage.

My only fears at the moment are:

1. Teleporting to a level 20. Are they gonna be surrounded by gods? Will I nexus in time if they are? Or will I try to brave getting back to the area right before the godlands?
2. Huge, huge masses of ogres, and the minions of the lesser gods.
3. Braving tanking Stheno a bit too long and taking one too many red bombs.

As for others, I LOVE seeing the Lizard God and his minions. I’ve got by far the most snake pits from him. After him comes the Undead Dwarf god. Then, the Minotaur and Flayer god. The latter two, for one I see far, far less of, and two, I don’t believe I’ve got either to drop a snake pit. Almost all my snake pits come from the Lizard God.

And I HATE Ogre Kings. I have gotten one snake pit out of them. And their minions are far more annoying then night elves or undead dwarves. They bunch together, have much bigger bullets, and seem to have far greater numbers. I clear them out and kill the kings just for the chance…but seriously, they are not at all efficient.

Fame: 245 (replacing level—it only ever takes an hour to get to 20 anyways)

Char 5: Day 1

Fell off the horse, time to get back on again. As I said, I’m not going to let a death stop me this time. I traded a few of my hoarded pots and went after it again. Didn’t have much time to play, but got halfway to 20, defeated 3 dungeons (albeit minor, I’ll admit), and even had a nice UT Skull drop for my planned 2nd char of a Necro. All in all, for 25-30 minutes of play, not too shabby. Tomorrow, if it’s as slow at work as I think it’ll be, I think I’ll be level 20 and have traded a dozen speed pots for four defense pots and hopefully have a t3 or UT shield from the Snake Queen. Also, add achievements in defeating spider/snake pits, and maybe some other achievements, such as treasure chest/event bosses.

And ddsw1b…it’s always been that. Always.

But, to really track my progress, I’ve started making a list of solid achievements below. This way I can track equipment upgrades, stat upgrades, and so on.

Character 4 coming soon. Good thing I had all that saved in the vault! Went to godlands to try to get a sprite portal to drop. That monster that drops the giant “web” shot me when I was fighting a Leviathan. Next thing I knew, webs appeared, ran into them. BAM, there goes my defense, I’m slowed, and it gets right into my faces and shot guns me.

Character 4 coming soon, and this time, I’m sticking to my guns. NOTHING BUT SNAKE PITS UNTIL DEFENSE IS MAXED.

Bloody hell…

Sorry for late update. Just been busy.

So….

Restart 3: Day 1:

First off, I have a confession to make.

Blahbloh, immediately after your help…I died about an hour later. Teleported into the godlands and death. BUT

I did save the defense pots like you recommended, and so, I started over. All my talk of the interlude was with that in mind. I felt horrible about it…and I thought about not owning up. But, yeah, I died there, then restarted with the 2 defense pots saved up. Actually, I hadn’t got 2 defense pots, just 1 and 2 speed pots, but enough. So, I had a great beginning.

Now, for the true day 1.

As I said, I had died, and with my 2 defense pots, I quickly got a T9 weapon for a speed pot and a T9 armor. Then, I quickly leveled to 20, and started my journey again, this time with more knowledge than ever before.

Work was slow, so I tore through snake pits like mad. With the new knowledge to look for treasure rooms, it soon became needed to explore every square bit of the dungeon. Later on I realized I was taking it too far, as treasure rooms need so much space, so in the future I’ll be a bit more efficient. If that path can’t possibly lead to another path that can lead to a treasure room…don’t bother.

Snake queen after snake queen after snake queen fell before my wrath and my speed pot collection and selling soon began to snowball. 4 defense pots were consumed, 4 vitality pots were consumed, 2 attack pots, another vitality pot, and a defense pot all wait in my vault, “just in case”. Even if I were to die right now….I’m ready to start again and have the equipment ready to immediately go after snake queen once I level to 20, which only takes about an hour.

The queen coughed up a snake skin shield and a snake eye ring which I’m currently using. I’ve had some t3 rings I just threw away but right now I think those are my favorites. I found a t9 sword and quickly updated to that.

So in one day, I managed to level to 20, consume a total of 8 pots (4 defense, 4 vitality), have 4 pots just sitting in my inventory in case of another death, upgraded all my equipment, a few pieces twice, and accumulate 286 fame—my highest ever.

That was all Friday. Saturday, I didn’t get a chance to play. This morning..I’ll have a little play time.

If I can get a sprite world to drop, I’m going to give it a shot! If not, I’ll continue tearing through snake pits. It can only get faster and faster!

Next time I see a sprite world portal drop, I’ll give it a shot.

But, dex is not really much better than speed. They trade evenly. Speed is essentially the same as dex. Furthermore, Snake Pit always has the Snake Queen, and chances at anywhere from 1-4 (from what I’ve heard-most I’ve experienced is 2). Does Limon, or rather, that dungeon instance, have chances to drop more than one pot?

Look for a journal update tonight/tomorrow morning. I think this is my best character yet. I’m making some decent progress!

Interlude:

Alright, I’m gonna stick with it. Special thanks to Blahbloh for his help. Couple of magic pots, equipment boost, and an item to sell. I’m back in the game!

But, this is an interlude rather than a true update post. After talking to Blahbloh, I’m gonna adjust a few things.

First: Death is not the end! I’m going to keep this going until the day I achieve my goal…and remember, that included all bosses beat.

Second: Preparation for death. The ultimate goal is, of course, NOT TO DIE. But, I’ve failed that several times…so, I will prepare for the inevitable. In my vault, I will have 2 defense pots stored, in case of death, that I can immediately (at Blahbloh’s suggestion and ddsw1b’s value) trade for a t10 weapon and t11 armor. In case of death, these will be traded, new char will be leveled to 20, and first 6 speed pots go to trading for defense pots that’ll be vaulted again.

Third: Once I manage to get a character have a few maxed stats, I’ll spend my $20, unlock two hero slots, and get two more heroes prepared. I think after so much time as a Knight, I’ll want something completely different. So once this Knight has some very good progress, I’m going to prepare a Necro, and third char will be made with the intent of farming for fame. I have yet to make it past two stars even with my Knight….but, I hope I will. For the farmer characters, depending on how long I play, I’m just going to start with the characters I want to play, and using my farmers, eventually get one char of each with five stars. This is far from essential, just an idea.

Fourth: Snake pits will be used until I have maxed Defense/Speed. After that, I’m likely to move up to Limon, and see if I can handle her easily enough.

Fifth: I just realized yesterday there’s a second chance at pots in the Snake pit. I didn’t realize there was an extra treasure room with a pot drop. D’oh. Now every snake pit is double what I thought I could get out of them. Yay!

So, thank you all for the encouragement, and I’ll keep on playing.

Seoulslayer, I’d be happy to team up. With only 2, both of us getting soulbound damage should be easy enough. The only problem is…I never know when I’ll be playing. If I’m on I’ll team up, and that’s all the comittment I can make, sorry.

Day 3:

Death.

Oh, this irony.

This irony. Wow.

Apparently, I’m an egotistical moron.

How’d I die?

Sorry, you have to wait for this for another three sentences.

No, that did not include the previous one.

Nor this one.

It’s coming.

I was healing up from Snake Queen, the little “hide” spot that’s built in the chamber, where the wall is like this:

XXX
XOX

Where O is the open space, and I was hiding there. I’ve never been hit there. Ever. But, surely, one hit wouldn’t have killed me, right, I wasn’t cutting it that close?

Nope.

Then, what happened?

I don’t know.

You don’t know?

I don’t know.

How?

I was reading this topic.

Wait…what?

I was healing up, waiting for another attack, and remembered I hadn’t checked this topic in a while. So, while I was just sitting there and healing, I came and saw the two new posts and started reading. After a few seconds, I clicked back.

I had died to Stheno, the snake queen. Not a minion of hers (at least I think Minion would specify) but HER. I’ve never seen her venture even close to that far out. I’ve never seen any attack reach near where I was at, ever. But, because I wanted to see how my topic was doing….

I ended it.

Day 2:

I’ve learned I’m impatient. This doesn’t surprise me.

I acquired several speed pots..and not a single one went to defense. Instead, I traded for dex, and even 1 for wisdom. Why? Well, snake queen is only open for a few seconds of damage, so those few seconds I need to do as much damage as possible. So, dex is basically the same as def, since I’m doing it faster=safer right? …I know, it’s not. Trying to justify myself, and I realize the flaw. If you look at the end goal, of maxed out stats…maybe. The idea is to max out stats as fast as possible. But, there’s the slight dieing problem, which is why I don’t stay in godlands where pots drop the most. Snake Queen, I feel, I can do much more safely, even if it takes longer. But, survivability is #1 priority, so I really should be going for those defense pots. And why the wisdom? Well, I was impatient, and was tired of trying to trade, and just wanted to get out of there and back in the field. And my stun, especially against Snake Queen when I’m hitting her and she’s attacking back, can be a life saver and give me time to back away and heal.

So, in the future….I really need to stick to the plan, and instead of dex or….wisdom (I know, I know)…I need to be patient and wait for those defense pots. Shall it happen? We’ll see…

I think it’s time to explore what I mean by “maxed out character”. First, for a truly “perfect” character, I’ve already limited myself and it’s not something I can overcome. I have one, and only one, character slot. I have no way to gain any more “usable” fame. Right now, I’m stuck at 2,438, and a level 11 black spider. I can get more pets…but, my ability to feed and fuse, is limited by that single stat. I haven’t done the calculations, but I know legendary is the highest pet you can find, and it takes 2 of the same type to fuse to divine. And, another problem…my pet yard is only at Uncommon. Yikes. So, the highest pet I can get is legendary, and I can feed that legendary pet 243 times. I’m not sure of the calculation here, but if I hold out only for the top top non-$ items….I don’t know where I can get, but I don’t I can have a maxed out legendary, though I could be wrong.

And, honestly, I’m not willing to grind THAT much for the pet. And since it is completely impossible for me to have the truly perfect pet…why bother? I’ll probably just stick with the highest level 1 pet I can find with healing.

Next, equipment. I hope to get the highest possible equipment that can be found in the game for my warrior, period. That is part of the “quest”.

Next, dungeons. I plan to beat all the dungeons at least once. Ideally, to prove it was my own character and not anyone else that really beat it, I would like to solo whatever I can. But, I realize that is impossible for some dungeons. So in those, I simply must judge myself rather or not I contributed enough to count.

Finally, bosses/quests. I would like to beat every monster/boss/etc in the game. As above, some quests aren’t able to be soloed, nor am I likely to be able to finish off an Avatar for example without someone else jumping in. As above, I simply want to claim I was a majoring contributing factor. Skull Shines, Cube gods, Ghost ships, all of those. Wandering quest bosses are already done. I have half the setpiece bosses to go (such as the cyclops god and red demon), and none of the event bosses.

How long do I have to go to meet all these goals? A long, long time I’m sure. But, there are many smaller goals ahead. Each new dungeon completed, each maxed out stat, and each event boss defeated is a major step forward. Right now, obviously, stat maxing is my first major goal. Though, to truly max a stat….I may have to actually properly focus on one stat instead of whoring myself out to whatever non speed pot I can find! Onwards!

END:

Please feel free to comment on anything you want, even if it’s just to say you’re actually reading and enjoying this event log. If no one’s reading, afterall, why should I bother writing? If you have any suggestions on what I need to add to truly be considered max, please do so. Only one note: I’m only maxing one char. I’m not including trying to do this for every class or anything insane like that. Also, anything that requires money, I’ll have to pass. EVENTUALLY, I might drop $20 on the game, and see what I can get for that. Most likely, if I can get 2 character slots for that, I would. Then I could have a backup char with high stats and gear to fall back on in case the unimaginable happens, and one character that I can actually use and let die to gain fame.

Day 1:

With the game about to start, I believe I’m done for the day. Made quite a bit more progress than I believed I would.

I’m already at level 20, with 70 fame. A brief trip the godlands was well rewarded—found a T8 armor laying on the ground and was given a T8 sword. I also found I still had a T3 shield and a T3 ring in my stash.

Only one snake pit was defeated, but most of the time was spent leveling up, and finding some equipment to allow me to do snake pits. They are QUITE a bit slower now,but still, viable. A speed pot was of course dropped, and for right now, I just saved it. I think I’m going to dedicate the first ~20 pots of speed to 2 for 1 upgrade to defense. That’ll make it a lot easier and cut the time fighting the snake queen significantly. This time, it was quite a lot of heal to I get to 500 hp (total of 700), charge in, do my damage, then heal up, rinse and repeat.

So though I’m still far behind where I was yesterday where I was put in a great position…I’m in a pretty good situation and I can start making serious progress towards my goal.

Finally, thanks for the advice ddsw1b. I don’t plan to enter ANY dungeons other than snake pits for quite a while. Basically, my defense and speed will have to be maxed, before I move up a dungeon. And really, to move up a dungeon, that means existing in the god lands. I can do okay in the lower areas..as long as there aren’t people around, that run around haphazardly and drag several gods together. Slow and steady…slow and steady. That’s my motto and I’m planning to stick to it this time.

I’ve played on and off for a year, few days at a time here and there, never really committed to this game. But for some reason, in the last week, I’ve really started to like it and have decided I will stat max a char. Last few days I’ve played more, and kept failing. Today, I made it further than ever, and though my first very serious “I’ll definitely do it” had some good speed…a shocking twist ended that dream, and forced me to start over, with renewed determination.

Day 0:
Today, I decided I would actually make it beyond simply getting to 20, getting my first star on a character, then dieing, as I had always before with all but 1 character.

What always stood out most to me were Archers with their triple shots, so started an archer. Met some great people in chat who, without any begging from me, decided on a whim to majorly help me out (names withheld so people don’t beg them to do the same again and again—you know who you are, and many thanks). I had my first ever bow that had triple shot, other good equipment, and we decided to start farming snake queen. I was simply told, don’t die.

I was feeling confident, or as I soon found out, cocky with this equipment. I’m at 20% health, I can run in for one more hit…

I died.

Rather than mock me for the idiot I was, they suggested warrior, and I started again. Tier 10 armor, tier 10 weapon, tier 4 accessory and ring. I followed them for a while, and they power leveled me to 20. Bam, feeling strong. Did a snake pit or two, they had to leave, alright.

Started farming snake pits, and entering into god lands very lightly. Only on the edges, if I teleported in to deep, immediately back to nexus. Got lucky with a def pot drop, and learned though I was far from invincible, I was safe from instant death teleporting in most likely and I could at least, on full health, test myself against a god and if I found myself lacking have enough of a chance to immediately exit out.

Completed 2 star quest, traded a bunch of tier 2-3 rings/accessories for a dex pot, beat several snake queens for another few speed pots, and was doing the best I had ever done.

Then, it happened.

Was in god lands, and a dungeon dropped. Bunch entered, and from my previous experiences, I knew I could take a single hit from an enemy, and if it took too much life, simply flee, but I could survive that one hit. Entered..Davy Jones Locker.

Saw a few enemies, killed a few enemies, no big deal. Stayed back as others charged forward, keeping an eye on red dots for enemies, and messages of people dieing, so if people were dieing, it was probably too dangerous and to flee.

No one was dieing, enemies were far away, I moved up a little and kept my eye on the minimap. Then, suddenly, I realized my char was flashing red. How was this possible, with no enemies in sight? I go to hit f5…

And I’m dead. I stare at shock. “Killed by dark water”.

Now, I knew from my previous plays, that lava was BAD, and would kill you. I was not prepared for “dark water”. I had no idea what I was walking over would hurt me. I had just seen the best equipment I ever had, which to me was simply out of the realm of me ever possibly getting, gone. All, all gone.

At first, I was ready to quit. But now…Now I’m determined. Day 1…begins tomorrow.

Planning:

The planning is simple. Once again, I’ll get a warrior. With the NFL playoffs tomorrow and a father in law’s birthday to go to, I know I won’t get far. The only way I’m truly going to get this character is goal setting. Thus:

Goal 1: Get to level 20

After that, the next phase. Snake queens, and nothing but. I’ll stay out of godlands, and even snake pits, until I get all fame equipment tier items, then venture into the snake pit. Then, farm snake queens. Teleport to 20s, if in god lands, if I can safely retreat out of them, do so. If not, go to nexus, and try again.

Goal 2: By farming Snake Queen, maximize speed, and defense by trading speed pots for defense. Use speed/defense pots to trade for at least tier 10 weapon/armor and tier 4 accessory/ring.

Right now, this is as far as I can see. Once goal 2 has been met, then Goal 3 will be decided.

Though I doubt this will be a daily log, I’m going to keep it updated. I hope you all enjoy the read as I begin my serious foray!

Tomorrow: Day 1

Great advice Vegito_. I skipped 1 and 2 and went for 4 and after farming for 35 windstones, 15 platinums, and a bit more gold to get a second angel slayer, I beat it!

And I gotta say…I’m loving her! Farming 5-5 first for platinums for another angel slayer, now doing it with her for Terror Bajaj+, and wow is it so much faster! I knew in the long term getting her sooner would pay off for time. Thanks very much!

One follow up question…up until now, I’ve always saved crystals for Seraph. But I’ve read very little what to go for next. I’m guessing BDZ, then upgrade to Aeon (not using crystals for that, just initial BDZ purchase) – Aeon Plus, then just work on doing all the monster upgrades you can, using crystals only for units you have to purchase with crystals?

Topic: Epic War Saga / What levels for COTs?

I beat COT 5, but I’m struggling to beat COT 1 and COT 2—which beating either would let me unlock Sera (right now I have SAP). Level 602, base stats 155 health, 1650 attack, 0 defense, 1155 energy, 50 action. I have 3 DS BBQ, 5 Khronos, 2 BKA, 1 Angel Slayer, 1 Infinity Blade, and 3 Dime available to me. But I just can’t beat either. COT 2 I die in his very first attack. COT 1, I can push him to far right and get him down to 25% health, but eventually he has a turdzilla wall that destroys my twin diablos then it’s over. I’ve tried mixing in elite hobbits/terror baja, but it just doesn’t seem to work. I’m back to farming 6-2 for demon stones to work on making a second infinity blade (and progress on ultimate sword).

I just know this would be so much faster if I had Sera. Any more advice I can get? Or any idea what level I need before I could beat one of these two?

Topic: Epic War Saga / Mid-Late Game Conundrum --where do I go from here?

Thanks, help me get to 12-4, and I’m farming 12-3 for epic stones. I’m starting my Epic Blades 3 now, but gonna be quite a while for that Galaxy sword. Those galaxy stones are insanely hard to make, yikes. 6oo Epic stones just to make the galaxy stones I need for 1 galaxy sword? Not to mention the epic stones for the Epic 2+Epic 3 swords and…yikes. Just…yikes.

But, I do feel like I’m making progress now. COT1 and COT2 are still impossible. COT2, 2 BKAs, 4 Khronos, still die in one hit from his opening attack. Or even 2 BKAs, 3 Khronos, and a Fatality Drink. COT1, I can get my twin diablos to his feet, but they’re near death and they don’t last long against the turdzilla wall that builds up.

Can you give any approximate levels I should be at for each of these, or if on level ups I need to start raising health/defense?

Topic: Epic War Saga / Mid-Late Game Conundrum --where do I go from here?

I’m just not sure where to go from where I’m at. I am beating the chapter 11 missions, but can’t use rare rings on them because then I’d die. I’m looking at the equipment, and nothing really seems better than what I have—that I am anywhere close to getting. I have been and continue grinding towards Galaxy Swords (68 Holy Excalibournes, 71 Dragon King Swords, 2 Black Dragon swords, 1 True Dragon King Sword, 12 Epic Blades, 1 Epic Blade 2, 1 Infinity Blade (achievement). But, other than Infinity Blades being better than Dimes, even Epic Blade 3 doesn’t seem better than Dimes. I can’t beat 10-6 or 11-6 that easily, so can’t really farm for epic stones to get those any higher, other than continue grinding the base ingredients. Galaxy stones are out of the question. Cave of trials I can’t beat yet, so can’t get those needed achievements to unlock Holy Angel Seraphiel.

So…what now? What can I do now, to get myself to the point of finishing chapter 12, or beating 10-6 or 11-6 to start farming epic stones (preferably while equipping my 2 rare rings)? Is there any equipment I should be working towards to get me over this slump, other than the still-very-far-away galaxy swords?

Right now, I’m just mopping up the rest of my masteries on quests (I said I’ve mastered some later on, but a few are at 200%+ and just need a little more work) and saving money. I can’t really target what items I should be farming, and am just saving gold and currently have 5.7 million. SAP is unlocked, saving crystals for Sera, no other heroes of import are unlocked.

So, right now, I’m at a complete lost as to what I should do to continue growing stronger. For a complete list of where I’m at, look below. Any advice is much appreciated!
Equipment:
3 Dimension Axes
1 Infinity Blade (achievement)
1 Angel Slayer
1 Ragnarok
2 BKAs
2 Khronos Shields
2 Rare Rings

Buildings: All at 10

Crystals: 2730 (still saving up for Seraph)

Level/Stats (no equipment):
Level: 553
Health: 145
Attack: 1435
Defense: 0
Energy: 1135
Action: 50

Achievements (Highest on each section):
Battle Achievements: True Champion (current: 6525 wins, 209 losses, 15,155 BP)
Level Achievements: Nerd
Collector Achievements: Master Collector
Mastery Achievements: Overlord
Boss Achievements: Devil Incarnation
Epic Challenges: Epic Challenge 5 only

Units:
All basic gold units bought
A lot of monster lab units bought, no + units, none requiring only bought with crystal units, none bought with COT rewards, and so on
(Not bought: war tank, winged folk, fallen angel, lava golem, fire dragon igniz, flame devil, masked brawler, mermaid, sea serpent, aeon, all + units)

Quests:
First 11 chapters quests all mastered except for 9-6 (understand ninja spam, but sometimes only 3-4 ninjas will truly get “stuck” under him, and time runs out/it takes way too long), 10-6 (only managed to beat once using a consumable), 11-6 (just haven’t got started yet).

COTs:
Only COT 5 defeated. As his dropped item does NOTHING, no point in continuing to do it.
I’ve seen suggestions I might be able to do others but they just don’t work for me. COT1 even if I don’t move, he’ll advance and hit me with his big nearly-whole screen spell and I die instantly. COT 2 he marches towards me and I therefore can’t avoid his attacks.

Topic: Epic War Saga / Silver Swords Problem

I’ve had Tower 8 for a while, (level 142) and am getting tons of Silver swords from Tower, regularly 50/99. Now, I know these are important for eventually forming Ultimate Galaxy swords. Problem is, I NEVER have the iron ore/dragon sabres to blacksmith them into Epic Swords/Dragon King swords.

Before I level, I put on thief ring and beat 1-5 as often as I can for iron ore. But, I’ve wasted probably over a thousand silver swords because of not having the fusion materials. Should I run 1-5 exclusively for a long time? Or should I not be that bothered by wasting these silver swords so much?

Topic: Time World / Theoretical Invincibility

Yes, my stats, if that is the way they work, did not factor in the opponents abilities at all. Once you factor that in, then chances of multipling/tripling, you’ll see you’re far, far from invincible.

Topic: Time World / Theoretical Invincibility

Well, I’m pretty sure it works like this. I COULD be wrong though. And, I don’t know what order the %s are applied in. And working in repair like that just doesn’t seem quite right.

Level 10 Hide-30% change of missing. So 70% chance to hit.

Then, we apply dodge. 30% chance to miss. So, 30% of 70 is 21. So 70-21=49% left of getting hit.

Then repair. 30% chance to miss. So, 30% of 49 is 14.7. 49-14.7=34.3% chance to get hit.

Finally, dodge tech. 45% of 34.3 is 15.4%. 34.3-15.4 is 18.9 chance to get hit.

So, with all that, slightly less than 1/5 chance of getting hit. But, factor in the enemy tripling, or multipling..well, I’ve done enough math.
