Etina solo - impossible?

Recommended Posts

Hello all. I'm seriously frustrated:) How I can fail on 104 the newly added yesterday Etina SOLO on the last stage? I've started to blame the stupid npc healer -" heeeal malakaa". But no. This shouldn't be the only reason. Am I paper? 49kk HP, using the new pink rose boost and other dmg boosts, bloody 3SA +11 daggers, +10 PVP set, +7 pve cloak, jewels, Paulina agathions.. longing, abundance..etc etc etc.And I failed. On SOLO INSTANCE! There's something seriously broken in this game. (everyone knows that daah). But common, really? @Juji

I heard I'm not the only one who failed but seems no one is talking about that. My problem is that ncsoft adds this new solo instance and make it impossible to be done by middle geared players.

Any thoughts? Any tips? Thanks.

PS. Usage of HP potions in solo Instance seems pretty stupid for survivability..

I think only melee classes are having such a problem, especially othell. 

I don't want to offend you also, but by mid gear it is more like  +15 elmore cloak, 5 slot boorch with 4 lvl jewels, 7 sign, abundance 4, evolved Taurus agathion, R110 Krishna bloody weapon 450 element, blessed antharas/valaks, lindvior, rulers ring of authority, Olympiad ring, dragon shirt, Noble or Radiant Circlet of Authority +5, level 105+++ etc etc 

For FAFURION + Prelude of war updates this is considered LOW TO MID GEAR :)  if you have seen the progress in korea/eu/ru servers, in general people have better overall gear and lvl 5/6 brooch jewels, which is a crazy boost. 

If we had the chance of getting gear freely somehow and 3 times cheaper store like other zones do, you would have wiped this instance and probably never ever do it again, since it

does not give a lot of xp as I heard from others.

I am also 100% sure you can do this instance, few practice runs and will be fine!

How many $$$ you spend in last 3 months? There is your answer.

Without 400-500 you better stay in town. Also every one that say that are others ways to make adena without spending are the one that already have spend 10k and now are getting some profit from that invest. 

Your items are a bit low for anything from this update and the next ones.

I failed too (wynn 105), but I used bad approach and transformed into Naviarope. Got one shot when going close, wasn't expecting such a strong nuke :) I think I can finish it off with cherub ponies while staying out of Etina's range. Will test that when I have a moment to spare.

Well.. I'm dagger no chance to stay away.. 

Is there a point to kill its minions which he summons all the time? Are they the reason to hit so hard?

I did it with healer lvl 104.

I left Leona and other npcs to agro and attack mobs and boss.

But it take long time like more than 40 min.

I didn't got drops, maybe because healer and lumi don't do enough damage.

With feoh I got weapon fragment and savior fragment.

Don't worry ... this is an instance of shit. I did it yesterday and a half only 468,217,491,865 XP with rune 200% XP and marph 200%. This is a waste of time, you get more XP growing alone in Alligathor or Tanor

I don't have problems killing the bosses.. I have problems surviving :D

For 15-20 minutes I was on last boss Etina but then I was wiped before taking his half HP..

worst will be for othell, check how much dmg you get from boss and can you do smtg to survive, but imo if you use freya ice rose that costs ~ 7-8m now and some other consumables to survive, leave this instance for later, if you still want to do it ofc, atm better stay on macro on a spot where you can be efficient!

I quit this shit old game mid grade gear +15 wtf ... f u NCSoft lazy developers- no PC here. 

yes I consider +15 elmore cloak as mid tier item, you also need to waste tons of adena on augments which depends on your class, for example archer - 7.5 p.skill critical dmg, 2nd 15% p. skill power. If you rly want a top item you need the +18 cloak with same augments, which costs like 220/250bil ++, not viable for 99% of the player base

So basically NCSOFT tells us that we can't play the game if we don't use the l2 store or we don't have at least 400b adena(or even more) for what Argus said is mid grade gear for Farfurion in a game that even don't have any drop or spoil. This is a good reason to end my pain here and enjoy some more fun content, even with monthly subscription, at least won't be pay to win casino.

5+ years wasted. Good luck guys!

Do not give up on the game, there is a lot of content now to choose from, just find something you enjoy and go for it. Othell is a very fun class to play, optimize your gear for pve and go farm/xp, dagger is very efficient now with the new macro. You can go to 106/107 easy on some of the new zones.

You have decent pve gear + pvp set, few upgrades will boost your dmg significantly, I also heard from some friends in future updates Othell is getting even stronger. 

My dual class is Adventurer 105 and I plan to make it 110 soon :D  

Dagger is always fun :D

It has drops?! o.Oo.Oo.Oo.Oo.Oo.Oo.Oo.Oo.Oo.Oo.Oo.Oo.Oo.Oo.Oo.O

Yes it does.

They didn't appear to me on the floor (I thought it was the h00 bug, that you pick-up and takes a while to appear on your inventory), but I went to where Etina died, and pick-up and voila ^_^ got only an eternal fragment ingredient, but they can drop savior's scroll fragments.

From patch notes: "Vitality and Boost items can be used the Fall of Etina (Solo) instance zone

Savior's Enchant Scroll Fragments can be looted from the boss monster with a certain probability."

In PVE your Lvl compared to mob Lvl matters a lot. You will have an easier time with 105 already, each lvl makes a big difference in PVE (not much in PVP).
