## BsB is king, HD oridecon/safe cert is also king

Hey guys, penguin here, I have a degree in math and decided to solve the question, what is the optimal way to refine? so i wrote two programs, outlined below, to simulate 1 million refines and what the averages of 2 different methods are the results are expected First method, use BSB/old elu on +7 to +8, use HD oridecon otherwise (solveRates), second method refine BSB -> old ori all the way through (solveRates2) solveRates() ; n counter,ln,refine,success,iteration s refine=7 f ln=1:1:1000 q:refine=10 d . i refine=7 s success=\$\$roll(50) . i refine=8 s success=\$\$roll(30) . i refine=9 s success=\$\$roll(19) . i 'success,refine>7 s refine=refine-1 . e i success s refine=refine+1 . i refine=7 s counter=counter+1 . s iteration=iteration+1 q counter_"|"_iteration solveRates2() ; n counter,ln,refine,success,iteration s refine=7 f ln=1:1:1000 q:refine=10 d . i refine=7 s success=\$\$roll(50) . i refine=8 s success=\$\$roll(50) . i refine=9 s success=\$\$roll(30) . i refine=7 s counter=counter+1 . i refine=8 s counter=counter+2 . i refine=9 s counter=counter+4 . i success s refine=refine+1 . s iteration=iteration+1 q counter_"|"_iteration ; roll(value) ; n roll s roll=\$r(100) i roll<value q 1 q 0 i put these guys in a wrapper to iterate 1 million, these are the averages BsB used from solveRates method: 25.593615 BsB used from solveRates2 method: 19.328085 total iterations solveRates method: 49.350849 total iterations solveRates2 method: 7.328922 I think its right because BSB all the way through is solvable, you have (2)(1) + 2(2) + 3.3333(4) = 19.333 which is what my averages are converging to BUT WAIT, what if we used safe refines instead of BSB and old ori ALL THE WAY THROUGH??? So use HD oridecon to go higher than +7, if we drop to +6 safe refine back to +7 solveRates3() ; n counter,ln,refine,success,iteration s refine=7 f ln=1:1:1000 q:refine=10 d . i refine=7 s success=\$\$roll(30) . i refine=8 s success=\$\$roll(30) . i refine=9 s success=\$\$roll(19) . i 'success,refine>6 s refine=refine-1 . e i success s refine=refine+1 . i refine=6 s counter=counter+1,refine=7 . s iteration=iteration+1 q counter_"|"_iteration iterating, we get Safe Refine +7 needed: 30.947449 HD Ori needed: 67.090516 assume BsB = 10,000,000 HD Ori = 1,500,000 Safe Refine = 4,000,000 Old Ori = 4,000,000 Refine to +10 using BsB/old ori = 222,720,000 zanels to refine Refine to +10 using BsB/old ori/HD ori = trash, infinity zanel don't do it Refine to +10 using Safe Ticket/HD ori = 224,395,000 zanels to refine Takeaways: 1. BsB + old ori is better than BsB at 7 and HD ori onward, even in terms of BsB used 2. Safe Refine +7 + HD ori is actually a reasonably cost effective method to refine something to +10 3. HD ori should never be used outside of refine event 4. Optimal cost efficiency during refine event is safe to 7 to preserve +7, use HD ori to get to +9, use BsB/old to get from 9 to 10

The last time this happened to me the server was only down for a max of 20 minutes (after being assured that "the server should always be up") looks like its been down for over an hour now.

## 𝐻𝑒𝓁𝓁𝑜!ヅ

So, I was skeptical on writing an introduction post as I do see there's not much responses to them but oh well, here I am. I've been on RO for quite a while on and off. I'm recently at home a lot so I get bored during the day and thought I would come back to it. I saw a post on RateMyServer about Shining Moon and thought I would give it a chance. I usually go to the forums before anything to see if the service is as populated as it would seem. Even though there wasn't much interaction, I thought I would still give it a try due to the post from RateMyServer was very convincing. So anyway! I''m starting today so hopefully I make friends and not be forever alone >: So far by joining I got so confused but hey, still trying! Anyway, hi everyone! ㋡

## Illusion Butcher

Please, please!!! lower the amount of delicious juice you need for the weapon. All the other Illu Lab weapons need mats from the mobs which spawn there a ton. Illusion Bazerald [2] >> Mantis Flower >> those are from Mantis and there are 30 Illusion Tae Goo Lyeon [2] >>>> Short Lasso >>> Chaotic Bapho 25 mobs Illusion Gold Lux [2] >>> Snake Poison >>> 40 sindwinder..... Illusion Butcher [2] >>> Delicious Juice >>> 5!!!(five) ghost ring on the map.... please lesser the required material amount of those. since there are 5 to 6 times fewer mobs there. and there are frigging ghost and can hide.... like u need only 25 or 30 for the weapon or raise the drop 5 or 6 times higher. hell, i would even pay more illusion stones. I rather pay 250 Illusion stones and only 25 Delicious juice.

## Leveling x1 Rate Character

First of all, I would like to say that, I'm writing this guide based on what I think it's the right way for leveling a x1 character, if people disagree or think I miss something, please feel free to comment below and help me and the others. Make sure when you create the character, to select BASERATE 1x and DON'T CHANGE IT, but you can freely use JOBRATE 100x (Won't affect the bonus 50% until level 175); And make sure to use HE Battle Manual/x3 Battle Manual or any kind of exp boost AT ALL TIMES, to avoid more time leveling; Command @jobrate 100 to change it I don't recommend a x1 character for new players or first character on the server, but it's entirely up to you. Basically it don't change much from a normal grinding on rate x100 to a x1, this way I will say what is the best IMO to have before starting, to avoid too much painful grind and endless hours of farm. - x3 Battle Manual, gives +200% exp bonus; - Wait for exp bonus Event from the server, usually happens once every month and lasts for 1 week; - Pre set-up gears to use on each level as you can use it along the way; So basically, first choice is having a baby class, since on SMRO baby classes have the reborn skills, example, Hunter have Sniper skills; - Killing normal mobs on the maps, with 10 to 15 levels higher than yours; - Doing Bounty Missions from Eden ([email protected] Eden right at the entrance) - Doing Gramps quests (When you hit level 70) also at [email protected] Eden, just straight ahead; 100/200's or 400's Gramps gives 2 mobs and sometimes 3 mobs, you can get them all by talking to it again; - Instances such as Infinite Space (until you feel comfortable enough to keep climbing); - Airship Assault; - Charleston Crisis Instance (keep waiting until the mobs reborns); - Old Glast Heim normal, then hard; - Leveling at Illusion Dungeons according to your level; - You can take the quests from The Illusion Manager on the @go Office 2nd Floor to the right (Careful the monsters are very strong). Here's what I did: - Bounty missions until level 45 or so; - Mob orcs on orcsdun until level 70; - Gramps 100/200 and 400; - Reborn; - Repeat; - At level 100 Airship Assault 2x; - Gramps; - at level 140 I did Charleston until level 155-160 did 2x Killing all the monsters as they re-spawn until get tired of it; - Then Illusion Labyrinth until level 175; In total were 22x x3 Battle Manual during whole process, 11 hours for level 175. Notes: - If you are playing on Helheim side, there's no Gramps, so focus on bounty missions instead all the way, at Eden; - Battle Manuals don't affect Gramps exp anymore on rate 1x (It have a fixed exp reward); - Bloody Branches or MVP's are not a reliable source of Exp anymore in my opinion, because of GreenAura; Saying that I conclude this guide, sorry if I missed something, but everyone is free to add any kinda of info you want on the comments. Thanks and have fun above all. o/

## Budget Sharp Shooting Build Ranger

If you have too much Ranged % I recommend using 2x WK cards instead of 2x Resentful Archer Skeleton. Now I'm currently with 126% Ranged damage and 177% Critical Damage, Using 2x WK cards. Damage without Unlimit and Aloe Vera

## Super Novice 1x Guide for Shining Moon Classic [Niflheim]

Becoming a Super Novice, and Basic Leveling. So you've started a new character with the intent to be a Super Novice and take the 1x challenge. At this point you're probably standing in the office after completing the tutorial. First thing you should do is @jobrate 100, don't worry, job exp has no effect currently on your 1x bonus. However, you still need 35 more levels until you can job change. You have 2 choices: -Choice A - Tough it out and get 35 levels with no preparation and build your character from the ground up. -Choice B - Be a sane person and prepare some starter gear with another character, even if just a couple pieces. I recommend either a Mace or an Axe for a weapon, and an enchanted upper costume with HP enchants. Why axe or mace? So you can kill mobs this decade mainly. Shield is totally optional at this level, and can be skipped completely. You can of course be more thorough than this, but this should be the absolute minimum if you're going to prepare ahead of time. Other options include: - Fallen Angel Wings enchanted with Fighting Spirit socketed with WakWak, Cenere, or Brown Rat cards - 2 Socketed RWC Rings with Fighting Spirit and Str or Atk% with the Revolver and Shotgun Buffalo combo - +8 or higher General Helm or Ruff Officer - Anything else you can wear at level 1 and cards to go with them Next is your choice on actually gaining the experience. My recommendation is doing the compiled Board quests at Eden. Be aware that veterans like spawning Bloody Branch MvP on newbie maps. - For 1-20 take Prontera and Geffen quests, targets are Roda Frog and Ambernite on Geffen Field 1 and 9 - For 21-50 take Prontera and Geffen quests, target is Elder Willow on Payon Field 9, repeat till lvl 45 Go back to the main office and job change to Super Novice. From here on its a matter of preference vs. what build you choose to decide where you can level easiest. Starting out i recommend a physical build only because most gear and consumable usage is way cheaper compared to magic. That and your sp pool is pitiful starting out as Super Novice. - For 40-61 take the whole Comodo board and do them all, use @whereis to find the best map for your targets. - For 61 till lvl 70 do the Payon 61-100 board, Sohee only on Payon dungeon Floor 4 Now you can start doing Gramps quests. Gramps is special for 1x characters because you get 5 times the normal experience just for completing them like normal. Partying is highly encouraged while doing Gramps, since some of them can have 3 targets instead of 2. Other options for experience include: - Repeating Eden Board quests - Using Reset Stones and repeating Gramps as much as possible - Running every instance you can fully complete every day - Doing episode dailies - Killing any MvP you can comfortably kill without deaths, bring Yggdrasil Berries and element resist potions From lvl 70 on its up to you to decide how to level. Use common sense like not taking physical build into Thors and you'll be fine.

I'm getting the same message. Something seems to be wrong with Helheim. Nif seemed to work fine, but I can't assure that as I don't play there.
