  1. Difficulty Scale: Rates how difficult a BG game mode is in comparison to other modes. Example: 1 = Easy & 5 = Hard Rate the following BG Game Modes for Difficulty Capture the Flag - 4 Triple Inferno - 4 Eye of the Storm - 2 Team Deathmatch - 4 Domination - 3 Rush - 3 Conquest - 4 Bossnia - 2 Stone Control - 3 =============================================== Average Round Duration: An estimate of how long each BG mode typically lasts. (Example: 45 sec or 10 min). Note: Please add an guess estimate for every mode. Capture the Flag - 5 minutes Triple Inferno - 8 minutes Eye of the Storm - 4 minute Team Deathmatch - 7 minutes Domination - 6 minutes Rush - 6 minutes Conquest - 5 minutes Bossnia - 2 minutes Stone Control - 3 minutes =============================================== Favorite BG Game Modes: Number the game modes below from least favorite to favorite. Example: 1 would be your least favorite game mode and 9 would be your favorite game mode. Note: No two modes should have the same number. Each mode must be numbered from 1 to 9 without repeating numbers. Capture the Flag - 7 Triple Inferno - 8 Eye of the Storm - 2 Team Deathmatch - 9 Domination - 6 Rush - 4 Conquest - 5 Bossnia - 3 Stone Control - 1 IGN: Mediana

    Phantom Psuchie Damage in HHH

    From my own experience in HHH, it isn't really as hard as it should be. It was never meant to be a "normal" farming grounds like how players treat it right now, with almost everyone going for solo full damage, opting for kill-fast-or-be-killed. Buffing mobs inside should make things right. I tested Tsuchie's buff myself and could tank her damage down to 20-30k*8 per SB and less than 80k per grim. My advice: use proper defensive gear and bring a good party. Remember what happens when we go solo in old HHH?

    Back to RO after years

    Mr. Rebellion on AoA? you can come to @go 2 whenever you like (as you used to do on Geffen benches) I sincerely apologize in advance since people in there are usually AFK

    PvP Balancing Discussion

    current cooldown is 0.4s based on changelog. FA is normally forced neutral (as far as I know), but based on my tests, using a converter (earth in my case) allows it to bypass Ghost property. On my FA Ranger (500 INT, 375 DEX, full defense on kiels), I could deal 180k per FA on a target with 75% demi+asprika. This was without Gem of FA as well.

    PvP Balancing Discussion

    Any thoughts on Falcon Assault? Already tested a simple build myself long ago. By that I mean a non-hero Ranger with 500 INT and DEX and absolutely no gear dealing at least 100k per cast on fully-geared targets. Would you like another test and post its screenies?

    Read twice & play nice y'all!

    "32b you can buy a relic and have spare" Did he somehow manage to skip the and have spare part altogether and assumed you are selling him a relic for 32b?

    Zeph vs Mining vs BG vs Bossnia Farming?

    Well for one BG has donation items from the get-go (4k-5k badges for an item), and it isn't as monotone as mining/Bossnia/Zeph IMO Bossnia is the most efficient if you can get a steady buyer inflow, and if you can farm continuously without much competition. Extremely rich people still farm Bossnia but with HE gum (I know right)

    Question from newbie.. Again

    Daily Quest resets every 0:00 server time. Use @time so you can monitor it On the other hand scavenger hunt is the same for everyone, and the first one to submit the items will win. Afterwards, a new race starts with a new set of items to hunt
  12. Have fun playing this class, hopefully Here are a number of reasons to choose SN for PVP: 1. Sprite 2. Novice Shield/Anti-Magic 3. To annoy people (once you've mastered it) 4. Become an underdog 5. Mini-AB 6. Potentially hybrid 7. Self-hatred As an SN, you can become one of the three, or all of them: offense, support, utility--all either fully physical, magical, or both. Legend: Recommended, Standard/Switch Gear Build #1: Full Magic, standard VIT STR 150+ (for weight) AGI 195 ASPD+12 (against AGI Down and Quagmire) VIT 50~ Soft DEF INT 500 DEX 190~ (instant cast) LUK 25/40 PD Top: +9 35% Redux - Fused Pharaoh Stormy Headphones - Kiel-D-01 Dark Lord Mask - Kiel-D-01 +9 Noble Hat - Fused Pharaoh +9 Glacius Crown - Fused Pharaoh 35% redux hat for obvious reasons. Stormy and DL for SG and MS, respectively. Noble every time you are going to spam heal either solely for recovery or attempting to outheal DPS. Middle: 45% Delay Wing - Glorified Orc Hero Ancient Samurai Blades - Glorified Orc Hero Magic Rare - Glorified Orc Hero Your source of ACDR and magic damage (if you opt for the latter two). Bottom: Music Ring - Kiel-D-01 Grim Reaper Spirit - Kiel-D-01 Saint Ring - Kiel-D-01 Blessings of Porings - Kiel-D-01 Heart Ring - Kiel-D-01 Poring Ring - Kiel-D-01 MR for anti-silence+freeze. GRS for anti-curse+stonecurse. SR for def reduction. BoP for basic element resist. HR for anti-stone+kyrie. PR for anti-strip. Have fun with auras as much as you want. Armor: +8 Juggernaut Armor +8 Magnetite Body Armor - Tao Gunka Any unbreakable armor - Fused Ghostring, Detardeurus, Naght Sieger Spiritual Tunic (lots of them) +10 Wind Property Armor (Aebecee) - Frus/Tao Gunka SN's base HP is somewhat low. Juggernaut/Tao Gunka will help mitigate this weakness. A +8 Magnetite Body Armor will help if you need anti-knockback in specific arenas. Fused Ghostring to protect yourself against forced neutral offense (Sacrifice, Asura Strike, Acid Demonstration). Spiritual Tunic because resist. A Wind property armor for some good basic resistances with a slot. Detardeurus if ever you need LP against magic. Using SS while on Naght Sieger does deal quite a punch. Weapon: Neophyte - Celine Kimi, Zakudam, Zakudam, Evil Imbued Box/Corruption Root or Graceful Margaretha, Graceful Margaretha, Zakudam, Zakudam Wyrmtooth - Corruption Root, Mastersmith, Metaling/Lord of Death, Randgris Celine Kimi+2zakudam is pretty much standard for magic damage. Don't waste that last slot on some small damage bonus card (Graceful Margaretha, Entweihen Crothen). Better use something defensive to protect yourself. Know how to pick targets properly (e.g. don't bother attacking a geared AB). Switch to Wyrmtooth if you're going full-defense mode. Shield: +8 Novice Shield - Hades/Thara Frog +8 Libra Shield - Hades/Thara Frog +8 Obelisk Shield - Hades/Thara Frog Novice Shield - Golden Thief Bug Novice Shield for that massive 20% flat resistance against all elements except Neutral. +8Libra/Obelisk for anti-strip and various bonuses (anti-knockback, long-range reflect, respectively). An extra Novice Shield with GTB if you're solo-ing against a full-magic target. Combine it with DH/GC to make the most out of it. Garment: Asprika One of SNs' advantages over other classes is their flat elemental resistance. Better abuse it with Asprika. Why would an SN bother with SinX/Keepers' Muffler when he/she has Hiding+Stalk? Footgear: Sleipnir of the Gods - Fallen Bishop/Determined Kathryne +8 Poseidon Shoes - Determined Kathryne +8 Howling Wind - Determined Kathryne Some people like Howling. Your choice; I wouldn't use it if you ask me. Nothing like auto-casting LoV to make your enemies flinch and spam faster. Accessories: Specialist Glove (Super Novice) - Faceworm/Scaraba/Gem of Super Novice/Gem of Ignorance/Gem of Lightning/Siroma Copper Rosary - Dark Faceworm/Scaraba/Elvira/Siroma Artifact of Trial (5%MATK, 6%ACDR) - Dark Faceworm/Scaraba/Elvira/Siroma There isn't really a standard set for an SN. You could even use Evil Gloves if you want to. Using Specialist Glove+Fused Pharaoh also removes 100% of your SP consumption. You could ignore Pressure spam and Soul Burn. Build #2: Full Physical/ standard VIT STR 500 AGI 195 ASPD+12 (against AGI Down and Quagmire) VIT 50~ Soft DEF INT 80/350 (Amon Ra) DEX 300 (HIT) LUK 20/25/40 PD Top: 35% Redux - Gemini-S58 Pokemon Master Cap - Gemini-S58 Stormy Headphones - Kiel-D-01 Freeza Hat - Gemini-S58 Noble Hat - Kiel-D-01 Glacius Crown - Gemini-S58 35% redux hat for obvious reasons. Stormy for SG. Noble every time you are going to spam heal either solely for recovery or attempting to outheal DPS. Freeza for endowing with Ghost. Glacius Crown when dueling magic-users. Middle: Cloak of Azure - Glorified Orc Hero/Dark Snake Lord Great Butterfly Wings - Glorified Orc Hero/Dark Snake Lord Eden's Judgement - Glorified Orc Hero/Dark Snake Lord Harpy Wings - Glorified Orc Hero/Dark Snake Lord Your source of physical damage. I choose Cloak of Azure because SN really lacks the capability to deal massive amounts of physical damage. Use EJ if you really want more catching power. Harpy Wings against strip. Bottom: Music Ring - Gemini-S58 Saint Ring - Gemini-S58 Blessings of Porings - Gemini-S58 Bee Ring - Gemini-S58 MR for anti-silence+freeze. SR for def reduction. BoP for basic element resist. Bee Ring for some damage and PD. Armor: +8 Juggernaut Armor +8 Magnetite Body Armor - Tao Gunka +8 Keeper's Armor/Exile Armor - Fused Ghostring, Detardeurus, Naght Sieger Spiritual Tunic (lots of them) +10 Wind Property Armor (Aebecee) - Frus/Tao Gunka SN's base HP is somewhat low. Juggernaut/Tao Gunka will help mitigate this weakness. A +8 Magnetite Body Armor will help if you need anti-knockback in specific arenas. Fused Ghostring to protect yourself against forced neutral offense (Sacrifice, Asura Strike, Acid Demonstration). Spiritual Tunic because resist. A Wind property armor for some good basic resistances with a slot. Detardeurus if ever you need LP against magic. Use armors with 50% stun resist if you use DSL instead of GOHC. Weapon: +10 Wyrmtooth (BB) - Memory of Thanatos/Sword Guardian/Sword Guardian/Randgris +10 Wyrmtooth (BB) - Incantation Samurai/Sword Guardian/Sword Guardian/Randgris +10 Wyrmtooth (SB) - Fused Atroce/Incantation Samurai/White Knight/Randgris +10 Wyrmtooth (SB) - Memory of Thanatos/Fused Atroce/White Knight/Randgris You need to be Lv 4 to use BB. I know, right? Shield: +8 Novice Shield - Hades/Thara Frog +8 Libra Shield - Hades/Thara Frog +8 Obelisk Shield - Hades/Thara Frog Novice Shield - Golden Thief Bug Novice Shield for that massive 20% flat resistance against all elements except Neutral. +8Libra/Obelisk for anti-strip and various bonuses (anti-knockback, long-range reflect, respectively). An extra Novice Shield with GTB if you're solo-ing against a full-magic target. Combine it with DH/GC to make the most out of it. Garment: Asprika One of SNs' advantages over other classes is their flat elemental resistance. Better abuse it with Asprika. Why would an SN bother with SinX/Keepers' Muffler when he/she has Hiding+Stalk? Footgear: Sleipnir of the Gods - Amon Ra/Fused Eddga +8 Poseidon Shoes - Amon Ra/Fused Eddga Supersonic Shoes Some people like Howling. Your choice; I wouldn't use it if you ask me. Nothing like auto-casting LoV to make your enemies flinch and spam faster. Supersonic Shoes if you want a different source of 50% stun resist. Accessories: Copper Rosary - Gem of Sonic Blow/Gem of Safety/Gem of Pneuma/Ifrit Artifact of Trial (5%ATK, Immune Lv 1) - Ifrit/Gem of Marksmanship/Gem of Safety/Gem of Pneuma There isn't really a standard set for an SN. You could even use Evil Gloves if you want to. Build #3: Hybrid Physical+Magical, low VIT STR 430+ AGI 195 ASPD+12 (against AGI Down and Quagmire) VIT 1 INT 500 DEX 200~ (instant cast+HIT; you have Attention Concentrate and Blessing) LUK 20-25 PD Top: +9 35% Redux - Fused Pharaoh Stormy Headphones - Kiel-D-01 Dark Lord Mask - Kiel-D-01 +9 Noble Hat - Fused Pharaoh Pokemon Master Cap - Kiel-D-01 +9 Glacius Crown - Fused Pharaoh 35% redux hat for obvious reasons. Stormy and DL for SG and MS, respectively. Noble every time you are going to spam heal either solely for recovery or attempting to outheal DPS. Pokemon Master Cap for Auto Sonic Blow. Bowling Bash damage is already weak enough; playing it on less than 450 STR will make it even worse. Welcome to the world of hybrids. Middle: 45% Delay Wing - Glorified Orc Hero Ancient Samurai Blades - Glorified Orc Hero Swords of Divinity - Glorified Orc Hero Magic Rare - Glorified Orc Hero Melee Rare - Glorified Orc Hero Your source of ACDR and magic+physical damage. Bottom: Music Ring - Kiel-D-01 Grim Reaper Spirit - Kiel-D-01 Saint Ring - Kiel-D-01 Blessings of Porings - Kiel-D-01 Heart Ring - Kiel-D-01 Poring Ring - Kiel-D-01 Bee Ring - Kiel-D-01 ??? - Permeter MR for anti-silence+freeze. GRS for anti-curse+stonecurse. SR for def reduction. BoP for basic element resist. HR for anti-stone+kyrie. PR for anti-strip. Bee Ring for damage+PD. Have fun with auras as much as you want. You can opt for an aura slotted with Permeter if you know you are facing someone using Shadow property attacks. Armor: +8 Juggernaut Armor +8 Magnetite Body Armor - Spirit Decorated Tree Any unbreakable armor - Fused Ghostring, Detardeurus, Naght Sieger Spiritual Tunic (lots of them) +10 Wind Property Armor (Aebecee) - Frus/Tao Gunka SN's base HP is somewhat low. Juggernaut/Spirit Decorated Tree will help mitigate this weakness. A +8 Magnetite Body Armor will help if you need anti-knockback in specific arenas. Fused Ghostring to protect yourself against forced neutral offense (Sacrifice, Asura Strike, Acid Demonstration). Spiritual Tunic because resist. A Wind property armor for some good basic resistances with a slot. Detardeurus if ever you need LP against magic. Using SS while on Naght Sieger does deal quite a punch. On low VIT builds, raw HP bonuses usually give more HP than HP% bonuses. Experiment with which combos give you the most HP. Weapon: Neophyte - Celine Kimi, Zakudam, Zakudam, Evil Imbued Box/Corruption Root OR Graceful Margaretha, Graceful Margaretha, Zakudam, Zakudam +10 Wyrmtooth - Memory of Thanatos, White Knight, Fused Atroce, Randgris Celine Kimi+2zakudam is pretty much standard for magic damage. Don't waste that last slot on some small damage bonus card (Graceful Margaretha, Entweihen Crothen). Better use something defensive to protect yourself. Know how to pick targets properly (e.g. don't bother attacking a geared AB). Switch to Wyrmtooth if you're going full-defense mode. Use Thanatos so you can target low VIT with magic, and high VIT with physical. Shield: +8 Novice Shield - Hades/Thara Frog +8 Libra Shield - Hades/Thara Frog +8 Obelisk Shield - Hades/Thara Frog Novice Shield - Golden Thief Bug Novice Shield for that massive 20% flat resistance against all elements except Neutral. +8Libra/Obelisk for anti-strip and various bonuses (anti-knockback, long-range reflect, respectively). An extra Novice Shield with GTB if you're solo-ing against a full-magic target. Combine it with DH/GC to make the most out of it. Garment: Asprika One of SNs' advantages over other classes is their flat elemental resistance. Better abuse it with Asprika. Why would an SN bother with SinX/Keepers' Muffler when he/she has Hiding+Stalk? Footgear: Sleipnir of the Gods - Fallen Bishop/Determined Kathryne +8 Poseidon Shoes - Determined Kathryne +8 Howling Wind - Determined Kathryne Some people like Howling. Your choice; I wouldn't use it if you ask me. Nothing like auto-casting LoV to make your enemies flinch and spam faster. Accessories: Specialist Glove (Super Novice) - Faceworm/Scaraba/Gem of Super Novice/Gem of Ignorance/Gem of Lightning/Siroma Copper Rosary - Dark Faceworm/Scaraba/Elvira/Siroma Artifact of Trial (5%MATK, 6%ACDR) - Dark Faceworm/Scaraba/Elvira/Siroma There isn't really a standard set for an SN. You could even use Evil Gloves if you want to. Using Specialist Glove+Fused Pharaoh also removes 100% of your SP consumption. You could ignore Pressure spam and Soul Burn. Faceworm+Dark Faceworm set is very strong on this build with its ATK+MATK bonuses, Lex Aeterna procs, and raw HP. Notes: 1. Your goal in low VIT builds is to have almost the same HP as you would in other builds with standard VIT, except you barely have VIT on your character. Usually a very expensive build; I myself play it with TGK scrolls so I would have around 2m HP with barely any soft DEF. 2. For bursting purposes, you can opt for a NYDc-slotted armor (preferably a wind property armor for its elemental resistances) to maximize bolt damage. Gioia is also an option given that you are able to switch and defend yourself properly when the need arises, as well as if you choose Lightning Bolt as your main DPS skill. *credits to moumantai 3. Build #3 is barely plausible after the long-awaited auto-SB nerf. Don't get me wrong, I am in cloud nine after seeing that hat get nerfed, but BB (especially for SN) remains significantly weak. Final note: Super Novices can equip Elemental Swords. Cast Cold Bolt to proc its chain. It can be interchangeable with builds utilizing Neophyte for magic damage (cast Double Cast then switch to Elemental Sword to attack). Your downside will be 3 weapon card slots and non-existent base WeaponMATK. Also, swords break. *Guide complete, but always subject to changes. SN is a very niche class that works very well on the right hands, and there will always be new builds around. I'll share them if I believe they are worth using in the current meta (e.g. spike builds).
  13. hilg Whitesmiths are viable in pvp. MVPs are just buffed for high-rate that they don't deal enough dps to match the "mvp classes" have fun in dreamer, and stay healthy

    What book would you reccommend and why?

    Kovac and Liska: Dust to Dust by Tami Hoag - simple and food for thought on civil service morality Flamecaster by Cinda Williams Chima - quaint fantasy novel with a nice storyline opinion: don't include explicit romance in a non-romance-centric storyline; keep it very very subtle and/or leave it to the imagination of the readers (works better imho) Totally forgot: Metro 2033 by Dmitry Glukhovsky
