^_^

Alrighty then.. it’s been nearly a month of playing RO2.

Time to say goodbye… for now perhaps, I don’t know.
Don’t think I really want to carry on to get the so-called “max” items.
Feels like being stuck in a rut.
Thus, this is as far as I’ll go.

A couple of new games are coming up.
*excited* whoo hoo~

 

Thanks again to those who has helped me do the dungeon runs and early stage raids.
It has been fun even with the tiny community (alas, with a horrible unstable market).
Have fun and stay awesome as you already are.

Noel Item Drops

They’ve already fixed this issue a few days back, but, I’ve forgotten to update on it.

Noel items drop from mobs now.
So, instead of just having to either getting it from quests and/or crafting, you can get it from all the mobs.

Just gotten my level 50 Rare Scythe.
I’ve written about this months back, but, you can farm for your level 50 blue Rare weapons from the Goblin Leader or the Wanderer at the Road of Blessed.
Those two world bosses only drop blue Rare weapons, so, depending on your luck, keep killing either one to get your weapon once you hit 50.

And of course, go RHM and farm for your armor once you hit 50.
Hey, if you have awesome friends and guildies who’d help you skip a few raids, go ahead.

 

Dungeon/Raid Progression:

RHM/RHD -> Arena/Baphomet (N) -> Arena/Baphomet (H) -> COA (N) > COA (H) -> AOD (N) -> AOD (H)

 

N = Normal Mode
H = Hard Mode

  1. RHM/RHD – Random Hard Mode Dungeon (not a Raid!) ~ Level 50 Blue Set
  2. Arena – PvE or Garden of Baphomet
  3. Culvert of Abyss
  4. Abanddon of Despair

Noel Update

Alright.. nearly done with the basis part of Crecentia.
Gonna tweak the Soul Maker a little.
All the links on Noel is at the right side.. scroll down a little.. you won’t miss it.. I think.. lol~

Will be calculating a few stuff and adding more explanation soon.

 

My take on the Noel after (insanely) obtaining both SM and Cres?
I am in love with my Cres, only because it’s a real thrill to push the limit and hit high dmg and crits!

SM would be for those who fancies killing and supporting at the same time.
They are not meant to heal on a full-time basis, therefore, works like just a Sorcerer.
In fact, their heals aren’t even as great as a Sorc, but, fine enough to be a sub-support.
However, you’re there to give awesome “buffs” and well, heal whenever there is a real need aka especially boss fights.

So… yeah.. ^_^

Poof~ Update for the weekend…

Annyeong!!! ❤

And so… the story goes…
That I created my Crecentia and she’s level 47 at this moment.
Don’t ask why I’m crazy enough to level so fast during this weekend.

But, I’ll be thanking another huge group of people who has been helping me with my dungeon quests soon….
>_<
Especially my new guild mates from DarkAges.

Also, I’ll be updating the skills section for Crecentia pretty soon (the reason to why I created this new Noel).

Since I was leveling non-stop, I’m sorry if I haven’t replied anyone.
+_+
Hope to reply your messages tomorrow.
Going to bed now.
Am in a zombified mode right now!!! O.o

Nightz… ❤

Alter to Crecentia Build

Feel free to create your own build.

I don’t think there’s any cookie-cutter “most awesome” build.
Everyone would have their own preferences and style of playing.

What would you like on your menu?

  • PvP
  • PvE AoE
  • PvE 1v1
  • PvE Stigma debuff/DoT

The build below is purely based on PvE 1v1 Stigma debuff/DoT.
But, I will be stating alternatives in the explanation section.

More on intro of Noel and their skills.

Before we start, let’s debunk the meaning about Stigma debuffs a teeny-tiny bit (because I don’t know much about it either.. lol).
What exactly are those pink-purplish dots on the head of your enemy?
Debuffs by itself means “negative status ailment”, whereby an attack or spell causes some ill effect on a target, such as bleeding, silence and poisoning.
For this instance, these Stigma debuffs increases the damage given to your target.
In short, the more Stigma debuffs your target has, the higher your (and your party members’) damage on the target is.

 

 

Single Target Attack Damage

Diem Wind

  • Casting time: 1 sec
  • Cooldown: 1 sec
  • SP Cost: 1/2/3/4/5

  • You could max Illusion Blade for the 100% probability debuff instead of this
  • The difference lies in the SP cost, CD, extra damage and extra 1 Stigma debuff
  • Illusion Blade takes a longer time to finish its cooldown (1 sec for DW vs 5 sec for IB)
  • Uses lesser SP in the same amount of time
  • Gives an extra 30% damage if your enemy already has a curse on it

ScreenCapture_2013_07_14_00_36_27

One more level to reach 50.
Taking my time to level, as I can only afford to play a little during the weekdays.
Gonna be busy with my studies from tomorrow onwards, so, I’m not sure when I’ll get that one level.

Also, I’m not really sure if I want to continue playing after this.
It has been a nice week playing the Noel.
I don’t mind the small community, but, the economy is really shocking.. the value of everything sky rocketed in just a few months.
Too bad everything else that evolves around it isn’t so conducive to invest my time in farming gold, good gear, title, etc.

If I do have a little more time, I’ll try out Crecentia, just because someone requested for a little write-up on it.
(you know who you are… thanks for dropping by ^_^)
No promises though.

Good night peeps ❤
