    Farming as a Paladin

    I agree with Mawanmeabeab. I have a SinX for geff farming and several other characters but I found the most comfort and fun using my Paladin. I can go almost anywhere and efficiency is not the ultimate priority for me. When I'm farming a place, I take it as a challenge to conquer it as best as I can. You will never see me just focussing on one single thing and teleporting around, consuming too many items or going back to Kafra every two-five minutes. I can carry significant load, use less consumables, deal sizeable dmg, stay longer and even though I may farm slowly, I feel I have more fun and enjoy the experience more than making it a "race vs time" thing. That's just me tho, your playstyle might differ. I have never been severely limited by the skillset. Yes, there are maps where I wish I had a good AOE skills (other than GC) or if my SC could deal elemental dmg (which I know would make me OP as hell and we all know only Snipers are allowed to have that) but trust me I love the balance this class brings between offensive power and being a defensive turret. It almost spoils you vs playing other classes. And of course, Paladins do well in end game runs. Although, I prefer being more than a lowly blood bag so I try to run a hybrid SC-devo build to be versatile.

    TG/Kiel Carded Weapon for SC Pally

    IP only works with Shield Boomerang. Not shield chain. Tried and tested.

    TG/Kiel Carded Weapon for SC Pally

    I actually ended up making a TTQK mace. The two TGs give me good attack buff and with the Queen Scaraba, because of the damage multiplier, my dmg output is almost as good but with +35 hit which will help me deal with relatively higher flee mobs (of course not the highest ones and I don't plan solo'ing them anyway). And of course, the Kiel works wonders! There have been times it doesn't proc for several hits and I need to consume 5-6 GJs but it mostly works very well so that I'm just spamming SC all over the place. It truly is LOVELY!

    TG/Kiel Carded Weapon for SC Pally

    Oh dang. That's a good point. I almost wonder if this calls for two different weapons now. One for medium and low level farming with TG and Kiel while the other for very high end mobs where I add a Queen Scaraba card and may ditch the kiel and use GJs instead....

    TG/Kiel Carded Weapon for SC Pally

    That makes perfect sense! I guess I simply need to experience it but I can understand what you're talking about. Thanks!

    TG/Kiel Carded Weapon for SC Pally

    Thanks! I understand your weapon choice. Question about footgear - why not LT? Gives you good HP with the ATK buff because of high VIT. Are you using the DL/DI combo (for devo or just pure bulk)? I never saw the appeal of Eddga since I already have Endure and can cast it every 15-20 seconds. Just trying to understand the best options here for a Sleipnir when I eventually make one.

    TG/Kiel Carded Weapon for SC Pally

    Hi folks, seeking some advise here from fellow swordsmen. For those of you who have interacted with me here on the forums in the past, you'll know I main a SC Pally. I finally have enough funds for a TG carded weapon (yeh, never thought I'd say this)! Now, some of you have told me legends of a Kiel carded weapon with SC and I am tempted to try. However, I don't ever have this kind of money and need to get this RIGHT. Please help me with the following: I'm thinking of a TGx3+Kiel weapon. The damage would be lower, yes. So far, I've been using specialized weapons and they may be drunk with power. However, what I have heard about Kiel is that I won't need GJs and won't ever look back at a regular weapon. Does this kind of weapon also work for higher end dungeons where damage output is the most important thing? I intend to take my Pally everywhere I can and so far, that's exactly what I have been doing. I don't want to limited by the Kiel to farming just lower level mobs. Hope this makes sense? Related follow up - Since I don't need GEC anymore, can I offset the loss in damage (a bit) with a Lady Tanee carded footwear? What have you folks been using? Weapon - Mace or Main Gauche? The Mace could be used by my Pally/LK and also monk/champ. Merchants can use it too but not sure if any build benefits from a Kiel carded weapon. Thoughts? Which weapon would offer me greater flexibility with other chars and would be more re-sellable incase I mess up? Market - No one is selling just TG cards. Is it typically better to buy this stuff from the Reward guru (so 20+20+20+12 = 72 TC) or pay in zenny. What's your experience? To give you an idea, my weapon arsenal for SC so far comprises of: Brocca R. Brocca (only when absolutely needed) Ice Pick (for Shield Boom only) 2xHydra + 2xSkel Worker Mace - for all demi human mobs such as Alice, Aliza, Echio, Agav, Bio lab etc. 3xDrainlair + Flora Mace - for water/fish mobs, works wonders in bibilan_5 Looking to replace these maces with a TG carded overall weapon. I know I can't replace the brocca and IP as such and I wish I could throw in a Thanatos card in here for those high def mobs but I guess wouldn't really engage those. I know some of these questions/concerns are probably too basic but I wish I could try the weapon by borrowing it before investing in it. Any advice that you can offer me would be much, much appreciated. Cheers! P.S: I'm relying on you guys @Black Metal @MawanMeabeab @Mawanmeabeab2 @Spankerman and everyone else who has discussed this with me before.

    AHA! I didn't know this, thanks a ton @kolela I still might do the quest tho but atleast now I know its not a necessity.

    Farming as a Paladin

    @ponos how difficult is it to do the Niddhoggur's series of New World quests with a SC Pally? I'm embarking on this journey now to be able to access new world maps but want to make sure I know what I'm doing and what to expect.

    Paladin's Day Out in Rachel's Sanc Lvl 5

    Ha I still havent been able to try it out because I am saving for something else and I wanted to make a Kiel weapon with TGs (lofty goal) so that I would only need to do it once! Going to take a while to get there unless someone can loan me their weapon for a day to try and then I'll invest all I have to this card setup!

    BB LK Vialable?

    You're right. But also, provoke doesn't work on any MVP or monsters with boss protocol limiting your options to deal damage. That's where the VF proc helps especially with something like berserk. I haven't used BB extensively with my VF but don't see the def bypass proc as often as it does when I'm zerking (which makes total sense because of the aspd)

    BB LK Vialable?

    So to make money - make a BB LK with 2xSword Guardian cards, kill everything in sight with a single skill over and over again and spam infinite meat whilst doing so? Boy, have I been playing this game wrong with my Pally and ignored LK 🤔😂
  14. That makes sense. I suppose it would take longer to kill things but since you can't die while the mob keeps healing ya, I suppose time it takes doesn't make a diff. I know I have asked this before but I would love to watch this in action. Please make a little itty-bitty video when you have some time. And yes, Eddga would serve you better here.
  15. So I know we discussed this on another post that I started recently. You were kind enough to mention sniper cards and Kiel with SC which....blew my mind Now as a fellow Paladin lover, let me ask you these question regarding your build: I see you're able to pull this off (wonderfully I might add) because of the megs. Allows you to devote a lot more skill points to VIT and DEX instead of STR. I have been trying to do something similar as I'm trying to build a SC/devo pally hybrid for end game runes some day...maybe in a couple years I'll get there. That said, even with Megs, you still need about 4 hits to kill the Alicel - Are those sniper cards really worth it? I won't question the Kiel but for a character that can heal effectively, do the sniper cards offset the total damage potential with this skill and with a few TG cards instead? Speaking of Kiel - why GEC? I figured the whole point was to steal SP (and tons of it because SC does so much dmg that you could potentially suck all the required SP in one shot). Maybe carry a few GJs in case of an emergency but isn't the GEC wasted here? Could you perform better if you had say Lady Tanee or SL sleips? Is this something you are eventually working toward? I ask because I don't have any SQIs but want to be able to sport armor with these cards to see what works best. Appreciate your responses for the same! I am here to learn
