  1. Flagging with non-target AOEs does suck. As mixa said, most classes have non-target AOE skills which players can abuse to force flag. I'd like this to change as well. As far as Tyrr Duelist are concerned.... they are VERY good at PvE. My advice would be switch to a "partial" skill crit build. You don't have to go all out; get temp Skill Crit Rings and change up your SA/AP. Hunt mobs 2-4 levels under you and 1-shot everything with skills.
  2. The reason for going r110 is the additional 150 element attack. Element is arguably the most important stat in the current patch. It hasn't been discussed much here but on the L2 Discord it's been shown that monster element defense was boosted significantly. For example, Fields of Silence mobs have 1369 Element Defense. Additionally, the formula for element attack might have changed as well. There doesn't appear to be anymore "break points." There seems to be a linear relationship between element attack vs. monster defense. I "might" try and test this with Mega Strike but that seems like a pain lol. Anyway, the point is Element Attack is VERY important now. EDIT: After Skill Crit Dmg rings Tauti isn't too bad. It has 5% Skill Power. That's better than AQ/Baium/Earth Wyrm.

    ?????? are we playing the same game? I've played L2 on and off since 2004; you could never EVER get anywhere only "playing" 2-3 hours a day. As to your "normal working ppl..." comment; well, that's why NC implemented the macro system. Was it not clear to you when I said a majority of my grinding/farming is AFK macro? Let me be crystal clear; my Evis is almost 109 in mostly exalted gear. I sometimes leave her running for days without touching her. She has achieved the overwhelming majority of her XP in freaking Enchanted Valley..... So I stand by my comments; with the Dragon Weap event, Double XP event, current free Rose buff event you should be 108+ unless you started less than 3 months ago. If you can't afford $5/month in electricity to leave your comp on.... I really don't know what to tell you.
  4. Varka and Ketra

    One of your DDs is way better than "decently" geared But yeah, 10t / hr is good.
  5. Varka and Ketra

    This! A decently geared party with 110 DDs should be able to make 8t/hour out there. Having said that, the party needs to be setup correctly; no cutting corners. You need to have 3-4 AOE DDs (or REALLY strong single target DDs), a good tank, healer, PoM/VoP/Bison Iss. Even better would be a SWS or BD in party and an OL out of party doing Victories. The Iss needs to be debuffing as well. A dedicated CP is probably best.
  6. PlundersPlain #nerfe

    OK, I guess my concern with this is... why are you only 107? If you just started 3 months ago then sure, I can see that but if you have been playing for longer you should be 108+. In addition to my main, I also have a 108 Evis alt which I run 24/7 in EV. She is my event farmer and she has pretty bad gear. She only runs Prestige and Discovery Packs and over the course of 6 months she has farmed tons of event items for me. She is almost 109 and has leveled almost entirely in ENCHANTED VALLEY. She makes 200m/day out there. Minus 40m/day for spirit ore and that's still 160m/day. At this point I would say she is maybe a 40b toon (MAYBE). Ironically, my intention was to start a Plunderous Plains group with her lol. Regardless I'm not sure what to tell you. I have described how I make adena with a Tyrr and Evis, neither of which would be consider top-tier DDs at all.
  7. Varka and Ketra

    You have to have a strong, well made party but you don't need to be 114. Even a 110 party with Bloody gear can make 6t / hr out there. A mediocre party with one stacked DD can make 15t / hr.
  8. Titan vs Dreadnought

    Titan is all around better for most PvE but if you gear out a DN, they can do some amazing AOE XP
  9. PlundersPlain #nerfe

    About 40m / day. It's actually cheaper than using self buffs and you get VoP!
  10. PlundersPlain #nerfe

    Yes it sux that Plunderous was nerfed but you can still make adena in this game. I make 700m+ / day (or did before Ketra lol). I'm a 110 Tyrr with +12 r110 Bloody Weap, lv4 gems, older boss jewels (no gods), normal dyes, etc. It's above average gear but nothing crazy at all. AFK AOE 1 hour PI = 8 scrolls (average) 100m - 300m AFK AOE 1 hour Storm = 100m AFK Single Target IoS = 150m AFK 12 hour Tanor/AI/FoM/IoP = 300m I use an OOP Overlord and that's it. Nothing special. Made about 5b from the letter event. Probably 250m / week from Aden Chest. So that's 20b+ a month. Yeah, it isn't spectacular but I'm not hurting. When I'm not being lazy I'll even play the dailies live and make more. I'll also add that Wastelands is the "new" Plunderous. I don't kill fast enough but mobs drop 50k+ and Greater Aden Chest. You just need to be fairly strong/high to kill there.
  11. Varka and Ketra

    Ketra/Varka is AMAZING! Unfortunately, I would estimate that 90% of the server simply aren't strong enough to take advantage of it. So thank you NC soft bringing it here as quick as you did. I just wish there was a comparable group area with 107/108 mobs. Wishful thinking...
  12. Battle Rapsody Cooldown Time

    Yeah but it's irrelevant whether there is an order of application or not because it doesn't alter the reuse. It doesn't matter if your Evas rune is applied first or last the end result is the same. I suspect HandsVSkills numbers are either wrong (most likely) or he has discovered that the reuse description in one of the items he tested is a fraction of a percentage off (not likely but possibly).
  13. Battle Rapsody Cooldown Time

    One more thing, if my formula is "non sense" but it matches the OPs numbers could you please enlighten us and explain how reuse "really" works :).
  14. Battle Rapsody Cooldown Time

    Wait wait wait; you're telling me because you see a 2.4 second difference in reuse between items which give 30% total on a 1200 second reuse skill my initial assessment is wrong lol. You know your "variance" is something like .2% right??? Forgive me if I question your numbers and analysis. Hell .2% can be random serving lag or operator lag. BTW, how did you "see" 2.4 seconds lol.
  15. Battle Rapsody Cooldown Time

    10*.96*.95*.9*.9*.8*.9 = 5.318784 10*.9*.8*.9*.9*.95*.96 = 5.318784 (opposite order) The mathz is stronk?
  16. Ambicija is trolling you guys. It is impossible for a solo player to go from 105-110 in 3 months only spending $100/month. Literally impossible and he knows it. It IS however possible if you are being assisted by player(s) who spend $1k+ / month. Again, he knows all this; some people just like to troll to make themselves feel good....
  17. Battle Rapsody Cooldown Time

    Cooldown (reuse) reductions are applied consecutively NOT concurrently. So taking your numbers in order; your first reduction of 4% EQUALS 4% of 10 minutes. Your second reduction of 5% EQUALS 5% of your new reuse (9 min 35 sec) and NOT 13% of the base 10 minute reuse. And so on..... Numbers check out to me.
  18. As has been stated already, Victories of Paagrio DOES NOT GIVE P.ATTACK. It never has! The P.Attack bonus is applied to the Iss Dominator who cast VoP in the form of the self buff Iss Spirit. That 416 P.Attack is almost certainly from the CHA pot.
  19. ........... Come on guys, really? It clearly did change your stats. Your M.Crit rate went up 14 points which is probably 15% (percentage increases exclude fixed modifiers). You won't see any P.Crit increase because you are maxed out. AND lastly, there is NO STAT for Physical Skill Critical Rate......
  20. Free Event REWARDS!

    Should have made the letters tradeable would have been a nice little bit of adena for lowbies....
  21. +1 Sometimes it's the small things that can let us know you care......
  22. FOS

    They didn't destroy it. FoS isn't supposed to be the best spot for 50%+ of the server but, it is..... The problem is the extreme bottleneck on our servers. Level 108 - 111 players have VERY few options and FoS gives best xp/hr.
  23. Free Event REWARDS!

    I opened my my first batch of letters on Tuesday night (9/1) because I was scared NC would mess up and delete all the letters. Rewards were pretty bad but it's free pots/adena so w/e. Here is a summation of what I got; 17x Silenite 11x Elcyum Crystals 30x BEAR 80x GEAR 80x EWR 400x EAR Bazillion Pots I'll Post second batch 10 days.
  24. I wanted to bring up a situation I'm sure MANY players are concerned with; the scarcity of materials to upgrade some of the equipment in-game. I'm specifically referring to Gemstone Powders, Star Signs, and Crystals of Dawn. It would be nice if NC made this stuff more accessible. I don't even care if it's in the NC store. Just give us the option to get them with buying loot boxes (Hero Coins maybe). With the introduction of Enchant Scrolls for Artifact Books/Agathions Bracelets/ Brooches it would seem obvious to give us the ability to actually use them....
