Soon xD im currently planning to do it but too busy atm
Nice, please invite me as well, so I can know which is the weak point in my build.
I gave up on no VIT. The scaling HP is too good to pass up on but i only but 40 pts in it. With that, i can comfortably go full dps on equipment or switch stuff around for more utility.
Oh then in time ill take it. Really dont want to use SP for it...
Wait Kaisyl you're Knuckle MD, and not a small mobs farmer?
At least I find people who try out experiments like these, my guild just laughed at me.
I am a newbie tho, my main is only level 152. INT = AGI build upto 200.
Now I have to decide whether to 200 - 300 or 250 - 250
(Max stat points at 210 are 525)
I'm not sure how you get such high ASPD.
I have 2034 ASPD with only Light armor (and nothing else) and goes to 3000 with RNG of resonance skill.
Ah, I haven't gotten any other skills beside the core build (Goliath, Finale, Maximizer, Backstep, Sneak Attack, Resonance)(and everything in between)
Resonance + good Revita stock makes for instant MP regen in a pinch, in addition to Maximizer. Don't have Chakra yet, only getting essentials.
Haven't even gotten Rush or chariot yet, I don't see how I can make even more combos, I'm already full, and besides, the uselessness of the tier 2 and 3 marital skills doesn't make me feel like taking Rush/Chariot.
I might get them later tho, along with other skills. I am currently sitting at 205 skill points, and I have about 70~ to go.
I need a 100 MP skill that doesn't attack the boss as a starter, and I think of Bless from Priest skills...maybe get a stargem.
Kairiki seems too expensive, I won't even use 3 of the skills required to unlock it, GSW seems more like it, because Quick Aura is also useful.
Since we're discussing auras and buffskills already, can you give me a direction?
Well for one, the build is extremely experimental atm. You will never take #1 as attacker unless your party stinks. Breaker you will get quite easily however. Support too if you switch to spamming chakra combo. You do not want tank rank.
Playstyle of the build is highly evasive owing to knux main, light armor and MD sub. Because of that, it is extremely difficult to engage in solo play against bosses with high fractional attacks and no guard ability. Your methods of defence are to disable the enemy or to evade.
Stat allocation, i focussed on AGI in my build with INT/DEX as sub. DEX can be transferred over to INT but for experimental reasons, i am keeping dex. I have some VIT for the event that i do get hit, which when soloing, is a lot. Because of an AGI focus, I try to make use of aspd and physical attacks after which I bombard with smited finale on quick motion aura.
Knuckles needs 10k aspd to even do reasonable dps because of the low damage. But with MD, you can utilize high MP skills and combos with less drawback compared to other sub weapons in which this would cripple you which is why i took auras. All i have to do is not get hit. Against bosses from kuzto and above, this is difficult but not impossible.
I know that I will not become a DPS, I wanted to be a pure DPS then I would have gone full AGI or full INT.
Thing is since I already know that I will not become the DPS of my party, should I really spend more points in trying to become something that I am not? Skills like Kairiki or War cry or Battle skills?
Or should I take support skills like HP boost, Heal/Royal Heal, Auras, Bloody Bite, Maybe Ether flare and Element slash, and Chakra to ensure my survivability and also of my party?
I don't get what you mean by ASPD. I understand it increases Motion speed, but MP charge, Finale, Goliath stacks, Godhand Stacks are still bottlenecks. Don't get me wrong, I still want juicy Motion speed, but why 10K? That's dedicating a lot of gear /skill points.
Also, what ASPD skills? Quick Aura, GSW, Quick motion and Rush.
Of these, Quick Aura seems the cheapest and useful enough. Should I really go for anything else?
10k aspd is the max aspd.
10k aspd = 50% motion = swifttag all the time.
Imagine 400k impact rush combo dealer having max motion speed.
No need for gsw (super deadly since knux is a shortrange type also has no invincible skills unlike katana,2hs, hb etc.)
U onky need 500 aspd add gear ww, tww and volga + quick aura and youll be reaching 9kish aspd
One, Rush itself grants about 10% motion speed, so 10K is definitely not needed for a Rush Combo. I tested Quick motion, it's great, but I can't decide if it's great enough to get 3 other skills that I probably won't use.
Second, I get Volgagon, but what is WW? Or TWW?
Wandering wheel and time warp watch
The kuzto mob spawn can be interrupted. You are playing THE interrupt class
Full AGI is more than just DPS, it offers utility in the form of ASPD you wont wont to seek from equipment, likewise full INT would be for MATK.
You yourself have to know what you want to play knux MD for. It can be that the sub MD is used for utility or added power and utility to magic.
If you want to go full support and completely forgo dps whatsoever, I'd recommend you play a staff/sub knux or for DPS, a halberd.
Knux has utility, magic device is utility. Together, it just makes it easier to utilize physical and magical ailments. That's what i understand from their design at least
Yeah but doing that whilst trying to drop a finale to kill them all is a bit tough whilst on aura.
Nono, you can interrupt Kuzto shortly before he spawns the mobs. So you can fully prevent all 2 (or 3? I forgot) mobspawns.
Don’t forget annihilator reduce ailment %.....
True but you still have javelin. And with high aspd you have enough time to land 2 interrupts
The ailment chance Not affect by annihilator?
I think it will affect every skill that has ailment
Oh whoops, my bad. You guys are correct. I just tested it and the ailment chance reduction is also applied to javelin
If you get High cycle and focus on cspd (Dex?) you could almost instant cast wcos, ditching Shot skills
Edit: or replace Quick Motion with GSW (keep high cycle) and get Soul Hunter
I got the idea from here (not instant cast tho)
