For full NG which avarice accessory should I upgrade first? Ring, Necklace, or Ele Damage Mstone?
Ring > Necklace, don't upgrade stone ever. But unless you have a savior zan, just save your souls. Savior is still BiS even in 90 cap since you can upgrade it to 90, the only other comparable weapon to a savior zan is excalibur.
Is that comparison based off savior + agnes stone or just weapons alone?
90 savior has perma buff, or well, the cd and duration are the same and there's no charges anymore, you just activate it and the buff is bigger(not by a lot and forgot the exact numbers, but a bit better), so even alone it should be better than everything else for most classes once upgraded.
Now that I have full NG, is there any reason to keep my DG? like I remember hearing something abt luke raid having places weak to shadow but like, would it be worth the overall damage loss for an increase in ele damage?
Hi, I'm new to the game and just have a few questions.
1. I eventually want to play a zanbato build but seeing as how the MR set is so good was going to play SS first and transition into zanbato later. After reading (mainly in this thread) about the nerfs to MR that are coming soon though I'm unsure if it's worth it anymore. With the patch soon to come in mind, would it be better to straight up try to gear towards zanbato or still build SS first? I don't mind playing SS.
2. Depending on the answer to number 1, what weapon should I get from the epic road box?
Keep in mind that I'm not even maxed level currently (will be in 2-3 days though!) so that's my starting point, in case this factors in.
Thanks for the help!
Well in the future it's not necessarily nerfs to MR as much as buffs to ESSM right? so SS gets probably even more viable. if you wanna go zan, go with flare devil and build for fire damage, otherwise you can go with invisible sword arges and go a light sm and use MR until the buff and try to transition to gracia, which would be decent for anton raid. for luke raid tho you need full epics so that'll take time anyways
it's both, iirc MR gets nerfed and ESSM gets buffed but not in the same amounts, -20% from 6pc mr and +15% to essm
i see people asking about gracia's viability with arges, but honestly if you're not wearing 9pc or even 6pc MR, then medley itself has already lost its 110% damage bonus, and given that it's the main feature of the SS mastery, I'm really curious as to how well being SS at all continues to hold up after that short of getting yin/yang buff/90 epic weapons. Just seems like running katana or zan with the same levels of gear investment is just overall better.
also iirc, aren't there other options in the other leg sets now? buffed up dusky or smth
So how is 9pc + Tarbaza doing? Is it worth it to grab and have a nice, easy build to raid with or does it just die too hard after changes?
What's the dream 90 dream set? Resplendent honor + 5 senses and excalibur??
im not sure tbh, i've been looking at uhh,, sticking with ng having excal, senses, and i think they're just the relics of babylon? like that seems like the dream to me, 25% additional ele with around 200 almost 300 ele damage. That being said SG may still pull on top im not sure, then like hopefully move onto supercontinent when luke raid comes around
You don't want to use resplendent honor with excalibur. Savior zan is still the best weapon. You want to hunt for resplendent so you can one day upgrade it into super continent. Dream acc is 5 senses.
would Excal be better than Byeo with NG?
IIRC the 90 light armor is that super continental you are talking about right? So is it that being BiS armor then NG? Currently have like 864 eyes and was planning on hunting for the inis belt and swap over the shoes to upgrade from DG set.
Also how does byeol fair against Excalibur?
A majority of the upgraded 90 sets are going to blow NG out of the water but if you happen to finish it before finishing a 90 set in general then it will be really good still. As for beyo vs excalibur it's all dependent on what you have, if you can get yourself a decent smash mod excalibur as with savior will blow beyo away because of how strong skill damage is.
That Purifion doesn't seem like a bad weapon for SS SM? +ESSM and Medley.
How does NG rank as far as Sets go for SM? Since I have no plans to finish any 90 sets (cuz that's impossible, 3/5 MAY happen, if I have God tier luck... But my only goal is to finish NG.) I wanna know how viable that'd be.
NG is strongest lvl 85 set but not 2nd best sm set.
For byeol vs excalibur, it depends on your ele damage and smash modifier with excalibur. If you're using something like respledent that gives a lot of ele dmg without additional ele damage, byeol would probably win. But in most cases, excalibur should beat byeol.
What should I be aiming for as a bludgeon user?
I currently have 9 pc ancient illusion, agnes magic stone, savior bludgeon, cdr title with some of the ov pcs upgraded to 86.
Sounds like all this craze for the +skill damage and what is pretty intense. Anyone mind explaining the difference between say Elenore?
Also hear this less, but what about the additional crit, all atk, and that ignore defense (ie cursed Muramasa). Not very relevant?
Senpai notice me :<
