  1. Based on your definition of "best", it's my belief that you won't be able to invest in anything. Your points are somewhat contradictory. Unless you have fun in finding efficiencies like making builds or ways to improve on certain activities in the game, it's nigh impossible to meet your first two conditions. Similarly, low risk and high reward. You're not willing to risk it big but expect to double/triple your capital. This just won't happen unless you play the long game but, again, this contradicts your first two points of fun and efficiency unless that's what you find fun (still not efficient). There's no activity in game that will check your 4 conditions at the same time. Now, if you remove your restrictions and ask the public how they would invest 300m. Perhaps, you'll get more answers. Where you spend that 300m would also depend where you are in the game. Are you hoping to participate in GMC, ET or other group activities? Spend on the gear that will assist you in getting there. You'll get some income in participating in those and you might find it fun. If you're a new player, building a farmer character might be best for that "inheritance".
  2. If you forgo overcharge, here's how it looks like in action. They melt very quickly.
  3. The BoA is carded with DBSn. I was only using provoke. Although the combined effect of provoke and signum would generate higher numbers, I like having overcharge as not to switch characters to sell and preserve my wrist from the constant moving of item in and out of storage.
  4. I can usually farm anywhere with him with the right armor (Juperos, Anolians, etc.). With an Alice shield, I sometimes hunt for some low and medium tier MVPs. With FCP (or sometimes without), I farm Odin for earrings.
  5. Here is my provoke/double attack variant build. Now, if only Suno had a bow SQI, having 200 DEX would be interesting. It provides enough DEX for insta cast but you want it more for the Steal chance. If played right, your income is a little bit higher than a crit build. Here's a shot I took earlier in Geff:
  6. Depending on the build you go with, there's really no going wrong with your skill points. There's no specific skill distribution I can give you but you should have more than enough points to play around based on your style of gaming. The obvious is get Steal, Bless, Agi, Improve Conc and Double Attack if you go that route. My apologies if I'm ambiguous on this since I always move skills around. Sometimes, I have Heal 7,8 or 10. Other times, I have Steal 7,8 or 10. Also, I get Overcharge as I am too lazy to move to my merchant to resell. Some get push cart for example, I don't as my timer in Geffenia is the awakening potion buff and I am usually at 90% weight by the time it runs out. In which, I have to sell the loots. I also don't carry consumables in Geff to warrant the need for a cart. However, I do get push cart when farming other materials (ie. SQI Bonus mats) or when hunting some MVPs.
  7. For the shoes, go with what you're comfortable with. I usually switch a lot of gear during combat. My main shoes though has been GEC to help curve the dependency of SP. For example, I usually use Eddga when I am mobbing or trying to pick up loot (this will happen often thanks to Violies and Angels). When I feel I can handle things defensively (ie. not too mobby), I switch to Gloom armor and Mystel. You can definitely stay crit at 83-85 but do keep in mind that your effective crit would be 68 againts a Incu/Succu (they have 17 crit resistance). You'll have to focus on either a crit or double attack build, that's up to you. Personally, I go with a CRIT build for geff. Elsewhere, I re-skill for double attack.
  8. Hi Zbx, If you want to do more damage in Geffenia with your build, you will need to either get provoke, signum crusis or both (they stack). The alternative is going a crit build. If you do go provoke, there will be instances where you'll have a hard time using it on a Incu/Succubus when it gets mobby. On the other hand, Signum Crusis affects your entire map view but has a chance to fail. You can somewhat mob but not as much as a Vampsmith. For example, the most i mobbed was 4 Abyss Knights, 5 Mini Demons, 4 Succubi and 5 Incubbi. You'll be able to mob a higher amount with a High Priest equipped but from experience, mobbing has always had a lower zenny per hour return. With your build, I would advise against this since you have low VIT and as such, not immune to stun. You're also not at 190ASPD. I would lower STR until you achieve ASPD. Here's my Baby Suno as previously mentionned by Fries for your reference. I could improve it also by using Ifrits but I have other characters that I use those Bris for. I was previously using a build that wasn't using any Bris or Valk Helm. I was using a celeb ring and the sign accessory. The upper headgear that I was using was Monkey King's Helm of Riches (itemid #20434). If you were lucky enough to get it during the event, I used that with a Yoyo pet to get massive healing/aspd/crit/auto provoke and auto steal.
  9. You get an aftercast bonus when you combine a +10 hypno with a magical booster[0].
  10. I'm thinking it has something to do with 1st and 2nd skill update. A few private servers have been rolling this out.
  11. Thanks for the input PrideFries, Although I agree on some of the things you pointed out, I'll have to disagree with a few as well. Before Geff, I started farming in other areas like Sleepers, Mavka, Anolian, Sting, Pyramid maps, etc. I didn't always have BoA, Bris, Valk Helm or Scouter. I had my usual +10Hypno+Magical booster combo as a caster. I also had my Shotel and used endows. I just had the appropriate armors/shields to tackle what needed farming. Why am I saying all this? I wanted to point out that, no, baby SN is not only for rich people and cutesy purposes. Hopefully, other players are not discouraged by thinking higher tier gear is needed to make a baby SN work. It took me a couple of years to get my current gear as I don't farm daily and have yet to obtain the gears I want. You are correct though that the stat cap hurts a lot but that's a choice I made when I decided to play a baby SN: to add the extra challenge of balancing my stats. This Geff build always needs more work and better gear. I can't wait to get another Bris and some overup gears for higher DEF. Hopefully, in a few months time! When I do get another Bris though, I'll still keep my DBSn BoA. I believe my max HP is too low to pull a huge mob unless I start bringing meat or other consumables to spam, thus not necessitating a second sniper card. My level 8 heal and the single sniper card sustains me enough in Geff. A maya carded shield and high priest accessory will make me experiment further on mobbing though. Once more, you are correct that my attacks aren't always critical with 100CRIT. Although I could make it higher, it would come at a cost by sacrificing another stat like lowering DEX. As previously mentioned in my original post, this was the DEX number I settled with which made me comfortable with the Steal skill. Hence, why you also see the BK in my Valk Helm instead of a Gryph, I just felt that the extra damage was better than more CRIT/LUK. I agree, DA+Provoke is actually higher damage wise but I would have to re-distribute 20 skills points. After weeks of experimenting around, I preferred other utilities for a slight dip in damage. From experience though, DA+Provoke will actually lower your income in Geff compared to a crit build. Provoke also makes the mobs that much more dangerous in Geffenia for my low HP baby SN.
  12. Since I sometimes get questions while farming Geff or when interacting with other players, I thought I'd just share my build, equipment and some information. Super novices are my favorite farming class as they are self-reliant. Also, it's my farming class of choice since I'm lazy and abhor having to multi-client for buff. Not having to put loots to storage and using a merchant to then sell them is a huge time saver for me. I made my super novice a baby just to add an extra layer to my gaming (lower HP, 80 base stat cap, etc.). I use this character to farm practically anywhere and hunt certain MVPs with it sometimes. Usual Geffenia Farming result: 185 Mastela 79 Blue Potions Rest are accessories but I never count on average how many I obtain Supplies used: Holy Water, Fly Wings, Awakening Potion and Butterfly wing. I normally don't buy or use any consumable while in Geff. I usually stay in Geffenia until the weight limit is reached or until the Awakening potion timer runs out for a max of 25 minutes per run. Here are some screenshots with my Suno in action and how much I gain after a 25 minutes run: My baby SuNo: Because my character is a baby class, its HP is only around 8.5k I get 100 crit by doing the Super Novice fury chant BoA bonuses: 100ATK, 20% Resistances, Aspersio and Aura Blade The high DEX is to add some ASPD to reach the 190 cap and Damage. It's also the number where I am comfortable with the Steal rate. I get 100 VIT to prevent several negative status effects Gear: Valkyrie Helm[BK] Scouter[Gryph] Pussy Cat Bell Novice Breastplate[Bathory] and Novice Breastplate [Gloom] BoA [DBSn] Advanced Angelic Guard[Hodremlin] Novice Manteau[Deviling] Advanced Angelic Reincarnation[GEC] Celeb Ring Bris[Ifrit] I'm still saving up for a few gear upgrade such as another Bris[Sting] or Megs and another BoA to better hunt MVP with. The reason I also use the Advanced gears is for the additional +2 stats. Some tactics used: When I find myself getting mobbed and am getting hit locked, I often just teleport and leave the loot behind. It's a loss but I prefer not having to die (lose the +10 stats) and to just keep on farming. Hopefully, once I obtain an Eddga shoes, it will help with this issue. I use Steal on every Succubus/Incubus but whenever a mob is building up, I try to kill the group and getting at least some loots prior to teleporting out. I do not avoid Abyss Knights like some classes I see in Geff. I use Steal on them before killing. They are a good source of Elunium. A card from them here and there ain't so bad as well. I don't waste time with Dark Priests but I sometimes use them as target when taking on a large mob. Their huge HP pool helps in locking on a target while the Sniper card in my BoA helps to keep me up. Hopefully, this helps answer some questions whenever you're seeing some super novices in Geff, baby or otherwise.
  13. Please message me if you're interested.

    VF Sniper/Kiel

    I was just thinking that if you had Kiel in there, you would be able to use the Dark Lord card instead of GEC.

    VF Sniper/Kiel

    Has anyone tried slotting a VF with a Sniper and Kiel card by any chance? If so, does it proc enough from BB to keep HP and SP up?
