  • Bots?

    My experience has been that in the game's current state the bots are necessary for the non-wealthy to make real gear progress. I'm for the most part a fairly casual player and was one of the many that got hosed by the restored item enhancement changes, and since I actually play regularly that means my gear is worse than the +12 returning gear. I opted to skip 95 gear since I was still contributing in fights with the gear I had, and save for level 100 gear and between then and the actual release of level 100 gear I had a bit under 300m. During the weeks (Damascus bots returned a lot faster than legendary ore bots) that the bots were absent my gear progress was completely halted because prices of everything nearly doubled and there was next to no supply. I actively aim to buy from players but I can't do that if they don't lower their prices, and they don't seem to lower their prices unless the bots pressure them to. After completing my Astera weapon and upgrading to level 100 +15 belt and earrings, I'm now able to participate in QB Astera raids and contribute to supply. Literally everything else still needs to be upgraded, but at least I'm making somewhat steady progress. Yeah bots are problematic, but with the current state of the game gear progression would be impossible without them for a lot of remaining players imo.

    Again, this is just my experience and I am in no way saying it is exemplifies or represents the current game state in relation to bots, but thought I'd share.

  • Anyone know how to get the Summer Flu title?

    "The Oversoaker" title is proving to be a lot harder now. When this title first appear (before the Rise update) it was easier to kill certain enemies with the water balloon. You could target the archers and kill them in two balloons. Now (post-Rise) they don't do enough damage (~150 HP. Even with secondary weapon proficiency maxed it doesnt change the multiplier like it does for other secondaries). Your better off targeting the spiders. But those buggers are harder to hit. Would probably need about 1000 balloons back-stocked to get this title post-Rise.

    How I got the first 10 easily is I actually just use low level gear and my gnoll pet. I got the boss to about half a bar and let my gnoll pet have at him. Because pets can't deal the finishing blow it leaves the boss with a sliver of health and then I just balloon it. I was too lazy to run through full areas so I just did ex-raids, but I think it works for normal battles as well.

    Here's a spreadsheet of all the new crafting recipes for those of you who wish to dive into an expertise since all but end game gear is no longer NPC-craftable. Even if you don't, take a look anyway and don't incinerate these mats.

    Let me know if you encounter any errors.

    Thanks @hynura for pooling efforts!

    I suggest hoarding materials until a double proficiency event takes place.
    What you should craft will vary depending on what you pick up and Marketplace prices and supply.
    Dismantling and Element Stone crafting is unlocked at 100 proficiency by speaking to respective NPCs.
    Crafting using bound materials will result in a bound item.

    About shared expertise:
    If you have multiple characters with expertise, you can use those skills while on a different character.

    To view what expertise is among your characters, pull up your stat page and click on "Talent" then look under "Shared Expertise".

    -To craft an item using another character's skills, go to the appropriate stall for the expertise you want to use. You will have multiple tabs for each of your characters to choose from.
    Example: If you are a Tailor who wants to craft a Dullahan Scythe, go to the Weaponsmithing stall.

    Notes:
    -The character name on the item ("Crafted by ____") will be whatever character you are currently on.
    -You cannot indirectly raise a character's expertise; skill level can only be raised when using your current character's expertise list.
    -Cooking is also shared, simply go to the cooking stall.
    -Element Stone is not a shared expertise.

    Crafting via shared expertise can produce different quality items.

    On another note, if you have Cooking skill and Element Stone, the lack of space on the Talent menu may result in the inability to view your crafting recipes away from the stall because the tab will not be displayed.

    Here are farming location recommendations for those looking for some. Use low level gear or take only your weapon to lessen repair costs.
