  1. I understand your frustrations, however this sword actually has a lot of interesting things going for it and I would say it's far from useless. It's a very good sword to use in combination with Frenzy Critical builds due to that build requiring high ASPD and damage, and it also has a lot of value in the early game as a low end vampire-esque build when combined with either Earth Deleter (SP) or Sky Deleter (HP) card in an armor by using Bowling Bash when mobbing. Also the fact that it's the only Ghost property two-handed sword in the game gives it an identity too. It also gives 2 slots which is pretty generous considering all the things the sword itself does. As for the rates I can confirm that this is a 0.1% chance as said earlier. 1000 = 100% for reference.
  2. Hello Itan88. It may vary from person to person, but I've had much more success when my Snipers have significant Attack Speed versus having HP > Attack Speed. This is especially true if you plan on running a power bow such as a +7 Turtle Elven Bow or a TTT Artemis Bow. While having a lot of HP is always nice, the reason behind Attack Speed taking priority is because it allows significantly more DPS. HP is important, but in this case the trade off of 2,000 HP for 2 Attack Speed is far more worth it in attempt to kill your target faster. Like you said, maybe 1 second faster, but that 1 second can actually make a huge difference in the end. This becomes even more significant when you start using a Sniping Suit and Bragi in the mix (assuming you run Sharp Shooting). In the end you should consider having just enough HP to where you can survive a plentiful amount of abuse without getting 1 shot frequently. As long as you have just enough HP, and the right armors to resist elemental/powerful attacks, you should be alright for the most part. Ultimately 15,000+ HP is a great minimum to start with and honestly anything beyond that point would be a luxury. Hope this helps!
  3. Hello zero_espada. The cheapest investment is going to be a Kavach Icarus with Skin of Ventoss. It will be relatively cheap and it will get you an outstanding +30 Flee. Deviling on the other hand is superior assuming you can reach a minimum of 251+ Flee without the Kavach Icarus Skin of Ventoss. This is the range where you're going to notice you'll be taking far less hits from most enemies there (95% flee against Executioner, Succubus, Incubus, Mini Demon, Violy, and False Angel). I wouldn't recommend investing in a Skin of Ventoss with Deviling but rather a Diablos Manteau with a Deviling card. This will give you an extra 5% neutral resistance for a grand total of 55% resistance to neutral element. The fact of the matter is that as long as you can reach over 251 flee, that 10 flee the Skin of Ventoss gives you isn't really justified compared to extra resistance. So in the end it makes a lot more sense to invest into that extra 5% neutral resistance instead. One final note I would like to mention is that it would be very wise to invest into an Osiris accessory as a swap if you haven't already. This will give you access to Agi Up level 5, meaning more attack speed and more flee, which can ultimately help you achieve what you need there easier. I hope this helps and good luck at Geffenia.
  4. Oh I apologize, I was mislead by your thread's title. Haha. Well either way, just stick with a Dex/Agi based build and take them on one by one, it's not that hard and still very profitable.
  5. Hello Blackwolf7! Aside from Thors being one of the ideal places to take your Sniper, you can also try Niflheim Field 2 (aka the map full of Loli Ruris). This map also makes for a fantastic leveling spot, especially since you have a Gloom Under Night Sniping Suit to work with for there. Bring Double Strafing, Sharp Shooting, and plenty of Silver or Holy Arrows. Try making small mobs and simply use Sharp Shooting, use Double Strafing on any individual or leftover enemies. You'll find that it's very quick leveling if you're not up for Thors yet, as well as extremely profitable. You can find this map here, which is directly to the left of Niflheim City.
  6. Please make that happen! D: In other news... ^ This is probably going to be my new wallpaper.
  7. This is some fantastic work Lady L, extremely useful! However there's two things I would actually like to point out here: First of all, in the Wine Cup section, it looks like you accidentally misspelled "Mastela" and said "Manstela" instead. Second, you actually missed something. There's also a hat that exists called Thanksgiving Pilgrim Hat which you can find here that actually gives you a Mastela Fruit drop chance. Just thought I would point that out. Anyways, keep up the amazing work!
  8. Hello partygirl and Tom! Taekwon Kid doesn't exactly have the best rental options due to its weaponless nature. Therefore you're basically limited to rental armors as a result. Taekwon Master on the otherhand has two extremely viable options! You could choose one of the following: Giant Encyclopedia (called "Giant Encyclopedia Box" in-game): This weapon is likely your best bet. It's only 110 Bronze coins and it's going to give you the following stats: 1) 145 Attack. 2) 15% Matk, 3 Int, 2 Dex, and 20 Critical Rate. 3) Critical Bonus increases according to your Luck. 4) Gives 40% more damage versus all sizes. Refined Hardcover Book: Admittedly this option isn't as good as the option above, however, this rental option will only run you 60 Bronze coins, and it's going to give you the following stats: 1) 168 Attack. 2) 5 Str, 2 Dex, 20% Matk. I would personally pick the Giant Encyclopedia option as it gives far more benefits than the Refined Hardcover Book, but the choice is yours! I hope this helps!
  9. Hello joshporado! This thread seems more like a report, so I will redirect you to the general report section of the forums which can be found right here. If you want some more immediate assistance, Kahli gives the best solution to the issue:
  10. Hello there asgore! I can assist you with the MvP aspects of High Wizard, it seems the other participants in this thread have already answered your questions about WoE primarily. The absolute basics you're going to want for any High Wizard to get started are the following: Once you have all of that equipment you should be ready to take on several MvPs! Later you should consider upgrading your arsenal, which can include the following gears/items: Finally, the ultimate end game is going to be the Staff of Magi, which will obviously come much later! Personally speaking I find that Dex, Dex, Range Resist, and Amp Reduction are the best bonuses to pick for MvPing, coupled with 3 Doppelganger Cards. You may also be asking how you'll achieve some more Dex if you decide to give up some of your previous Dex gear. To answer your question, consider stocking up on a couple Green Salads which will give you +5 Dex for a limited time! You can also consider a Priest/HP partner or alt to give you Blessing in addition to this. As for MvPs, as Combo put it, Eddga is a fantastic choice because he's not only extremely weak to Water (making him amazing bait for Storm Gust) his drops are also in high demand, and will get you a good sum of money. Garm is also fantastic since he dies very quickly to your wind magic, and ultimately has very profitable drops. Other great choices can include but not limited to: Biotata (basically every single one of his drops are good for something), Orc Hero (also bait for Storm Gust), Atroce (highly competitive among players but has great drops), Gopinich (watch out for his Quagmire though!), RSX, Vesper, and Drake are all relatively popular choices for profitable MvPs on HW. Eventually you may want to expand into higher end territory! These MvPs can include but not limited to: Ifrit (this one can be relentless without a lot of Vit, so be careful!), Hardrock Mammoth, Thanatos (requires a party to get there though), Kraken (this one can be relentless without a lot of Vit, just like Ifrit, so be careful!), Kiel, and Gloom Under Night. As long as you keep your momentum during an MvP fight, and never forget to use Quagmire when necessary (also watch for openings to use Amplify Magic Power!), you should be well on your way to make some serious profit off MvPs. I hope this helps!
  11. Hello zemox, I'd be glad to answer your question! First of all, I'm going to make the assumption that you're 99/70. With that being said, I'd also like to direct you to this very useful Stat Calculator that we have on TalonRO. Now if we're going to assume you can't use any Dex food (let's assume this is without Blessing or any external buffs from other classes too) that means you have a total of 99+12 base Dex, therefore, we need to figure out how you'll get 39 Dex. However, achieving this with Vanilla Restrictions may be harder than you may think. One thing is for sure though, you're going to want to consider having two Zerom Orleans Gloves as well as a Ramen Hat (or you can choose Tucan Hat if you prefer that). You're then going to require some type of +3 Dex enchanted armor. All these gears combined will bring you to +29 Dex, meaning you'll only need 22 more Dex!... But this is where it starts getting tough, unfortunately. Aside from those gears I mentioned above, there are quite a few things available to get slightly more Dex. One item I will suggest is Box of Gloom, which gives you level 1 Improve Concentration, and can give you +3 more Dex assuming you have high enough Dex, bringing you to +32. We then have some other miscellaneous cards to get you more Dex such as Rocker, Observation Card (also called Dame of Sentinel Card, 18 Vit = 1 Dex), and Drops. There's Wormtail, but there's no point since Zerom is a better version. Gear wise, Robo Eye is always an option, as that will give you more offenses as well as more Dex, and can be used together with the Ramen Hat. This would ultimately bring you to +33 Dex in the end. So as you can see, unless someone else can say otherwise, It's basically impossible without giving up a lot of valuable gears and gear slots for a Vanilla Stalker to achieve IC without Dex food; and by the look of things, it seems like you're also going to require a Blessing as well. I hope this helps in the long run at least.
