Alternative for new char without store weapon

Recommended Posts

I screwed up and didn't realize you can't transfer those samurai sword from the store to another character on the same server. Being a new player it just occurred to me how much those weapons make a difference let alone understanding what NG and d grade even meant. 

How is this game meant to be played? Those store weapons are temporary, but last 30 days and are like c grade. It clearly makes a huge difference grinding up using that weapon to get you started. Does NCSoft always intend to provide those advanced, temporary weapon at all times? If not how are you supposed to play this game when they literally shove you into lvl 20 from the start? 

I managed to scrap up enough for a NG weapon. This after realizing something wrong grinding in abandoned camp using literally the first weapon you get when you make a new character. There was no other starter quest to give you a better weapon so I was grinding for awhile with that starter weapon. LOL. But now trying to even farm up a d grade weapon is a nightmare and still quite the struggle to get lvl40. So my question is what is intended for new players? 

On a side note, if anyone can offer a cheap d grade staff for a mage for a struggling new player it would be appreciated.

quite simple solution dude:

This server you can open many box as you wish, so you can create at last 3 new accounts, then create 3 summons and go farm with them until lvl 40.

then create new 3 summons and again up until lvl 40 (summons dont need better weapons since they kill with their pets)

keep it up until you have farmed enough for your D or C grade weapon, or whenever you need adena.

Yeah you can't play this game solo anymore, either play with friends or run your own party. All you need is 2 account at the minimum.

[You can get your first d-grade easy]

1. Make new account to get the newbie pack. Put it on a fighter -> knight path. The knight armor mastery adds 50 p.atk and atk.speed when hit by enemy.

2. Your 2nd account to be a mage, don't really need the newbie pack on this one. Mage -> wizard.

3. Get your party to level 20 and find a good spot at AC.

4. Setup your macro and sit back...



Wizard - This guy will be the one targeting. Summon your servitor it'll cost you 2 spirit stones each time.

1. Make a new macro, for the first line drag your Group Heal Lv1 into it. Then fill all the rest of the lines with /summonattack.

2. Put this macro into your [Auto Next Target] window. Activate by right clicking. Also pick short or long distance targeting accordingly.

Knight - This guy will be the main damage dealer. You want to only assist the Wizard's target so you don't go wondering off and getting stuck.

1. Make a new macro and have the following: /target (Wizard's Name), /assist. /attack, /pickup

2. Drag this to your shortcut bars, and right click to activate. DO NOT use [Auto Next Target] for the knight.


The best spot to use this setup is on the Ol Mahum Commander or mobs that spawn in a small area.


[How to get C-Grade Duals]

You can get a c-dual all by your self. When you earn enough money buy 2 Sword of Revolution and you can put it together using 20 Stone of Purity. You can easily get the SOP by using your Clan Coins which is earned upon reaching level 20. It cost 3 coins to get 1 SOP so one level 20 will only get you 6 so just repeat it a few times.

When you have the 2 swords and the SOP ready, head on over to the blacksmiths in Dion or Giran and make your C-Duals.


[How to get B-Grade Duals]

This is a bit more tricky, you'll need a Warsmith at level 40 or higher so you can crystalize D and C grades.

To get a level 40 dwarf you can use the above method, just replace the knight with your dwarf. After leveling at AC until 35~38, move into Ant Nest until 40.

You'll need to have acquired 2 C-Drade Duals, 4 Sword of Revolutions, and a "Dual Weapon Crafting Stamp". You can only get a stamp if you own a castle or buy it from someone who does.

Crystalize all your swords and purchase 2 Sword of Delusion from the Luxury shop in Giran. You'll also need 40 SOP and an extra 250 C-Crystals or so. Head over to the black smith in Aden and get your B-Grade Duals.
