  1. Rune Knight Wind Cutter Build

    Instance coin shop. Niflheim only btw.
  2. Meme Time

    IGN: Onii-sama Server: Niflheim Title: ROFLheim: The Eternal Thirst for More Stuff The BMP: next time jro2.bmp
  3. Automatic

    While I would love for Automatic stuff be less cancer to grind through, having cheaper, more accessible stuff like this is kinda gonna kill the point of the regular Autos. Like, yeah, I can opt to go meta armor at full cost so I can sell it later, but what if no one wants to buy because there's a cheaper alternative anyway? Also, why the preferential treatment to the Autos? Why not 200 Mineas Poeni weapons instead or idk lv150 booster reward for a sealed MVP album (that would be stupid too)?
  4. Wait, so the patch is 10 days from now regardless? If that's the case, then might as well add it anyway.
  5. Okay.... so. Overhaul, yet again. Stuff happens. NOTE: This build for use on Shining Moon MMO's Niflheim server. Mileage may vary elsewhere. Welcome to the world of slapping people with a wrist-mounted dinner plate. Do note that this build is not quite the DPS juggernaut, nor will it reach the sheer utility a full support Imperial Guard would, but it's a meme and it's different, and I love it so shush. That said, it is naturally bulky, passable in damage, and probably maybe looks hot as your chara bends over with every cast if this game were more modern and actually designed worth a damn. Also, this is just from my own personal experience so it may or may not even be remotely close to as strong as it can get. Lastly, this, nor any other non-support IG build will ever reach endgame, as they have their tried and true niche of being a party-wide HP battery. BECAUSE THERE'S NO DRIVE PRESS BUILD THE STATS STR - You're not a mage. Pump it up. INT - Some cast time, and for Earth Drive, SP pool. AGI - Varies depending on your main. DEX - Cast time, basically. VIT - The secondary stat to Drive Press. LUK - Just enough for consistent crit. * No, none of the shield skills are naturally crit, so the skills can miss and the crit mod is weaker. Take note. THE SKILLS Earth Drive - The bread, the butter and the dinner plate buffet. Your AOE skill and if you build for it, your primary DPS as well. [MELEE PHYSICAL] [LV5] [SELF-CENTERED AOE] [WEAPON ELEMENT] (380 x skill level)% ATK, boosted by STR, VIT and base level. (7.5 - (1 x skill level)) seconds cooldown. 1s VCT, 0s FCT, 1s ACD (Halved in Niflheim). This skill is unique in that it's an offensive Land Protector, removing active ground effects like Tetra Vortex from the cells it occupies. Also, this skill, while possible to hit 0cd spam, has looong animation delay like old Overbrand. Alternate with Auto Guard. PICTURED: HOLY PSYCHIC WAVE BEING NOPED OUT OF EXISTENCE Shield Press - Typically hits harder than Shield Chain per cast, but is screwed by cooldown and needing the Racing Cap. [MELEE PHYSICAL] [LV10] [SINGLE TARGET] [FORCED NEUTRAL] (200 x skill level)% ATK, boosted by STR, VIT and base level. 2 seconds cooldown. 0s VCT, 0s FCT, 0s ACD. 0 range, heh. By the way, the range of this thing is pathetic, as it's shorter than your spear range and probably only reaches up to under the gryphon's face. Shield Chain - Ranged single target nuke. Passable damage but very spammable, granted it needs a lot of ACD and ASPD. [RANGED PHYSICAL] [LV5] [SINGLE TARGET] [WEAPON ELEMENT] (300 +(200 x skill level))% ATK, boosted by shield weight and refine. No cooldown. 0.8s VCT, 0.2s FCT, 1s ACD (Halved in Niflheim). Shield Shooting - Buff skill. Initiate with it to give the first 3 skills a damage buff. [RANGED PHYSICAL] [LV5] [SINGLE TARGET] [WEAPON ELEMENT] (600 x skill level)% ATK, boosted by shield weight and refine. 1 second cooldown. 0s VCT, 1s FCT, 0.5s ACD (Halved in Niflheim). The shield build's version of Overbrand Ready. It's also passable damage-wise, but is not spammable. At lv10 Shield Mastery, the bonuses to the max leveled skills are as follows: Earth Drive 1900% -> 3750% ATK Shield Press 2000% -> 4100% ATK Shield Chain 1300% -> 2000% ATK THE GEARS Normally, 2 skills are supported by the exact same gear. Cannon Spear and Vanishing Point, Overbrand and Hesperus Lit, Genesis Ray and Pressure, etc. Here though, each core skill has a separate setup. Gravy just doesn't like them all that much. EARTH DRIVE - You have 3 core equipment to maximize your damage. Racing Cap (Royal Guard) - This at +11 drops your cd by 1s. The stats are otherwise mediocre. Shield Ring - Free 30% ACD aside, its importance is the 1.5s reduction to Earth Drive, outright removing the cd if paired with the above. Illusion Sacred Mission - Massive skill mods abound, matched only by the EDDA sets. With 7% Earth Drive mod per refine, at +20, it's a massive 140% by itself. Weapon-wise, God Eating Dragon Spear is a pretty strong bet. Though only 1 slot, at +20, it has a massive 40% ATK, 40% ASPD, 20% ACD, and -70% FCT. Note, % FCT doesn't stack. Thanos Spear AD isn't even a shielder build weapon, but it gives pretty great stats as it is. 10% ACD, healing and a massive 15% to both all size AND melee mods. Damage-wise, it beats GEDS. SHIELD PRESS - You have 2 core equipment to maximize your damage and alternative hats of choice. Racing Cap (Royal Guard) - Disregard the hat. What you need here is the level 3 Royal Guard enchant that reduces cd by 1.5s and gives +60% damage if used after Earth Drive. Trial Diadem - While it has strong effects on its own, the big pull for it is the massive synergy it has with Harve as its partner weapon. Imperial Guard - Easy skill mods. 20% Shield Press mod +5% for every refine above 5, totaling to 95% at +20. Imperial Ring - Even bigger skill mods. If Imperial Guard is refined +6 or higher, each refine is an extra 8% Shield Press mod, totalling 160% if the shield is at +20. Harve is the sole Shield Press specific weapon we have so far. It's a passive 30% Shield Press mod, but if with the Randel memory, it gets +5% more per 3 refine, and with the combo with Trial Diadem, it gets another 10% per weapon refine, in addition to a -1s cd. Thanos Spear AD makes a reappearance as an alternative weapon with great stats, and allows the use of Racing Cap instead. SHIELD CHAIN - You only really want to have Phoenix Ring, but a case can be made for Cross Shield as a terrific budget option. Phoenix Ring - So many bonuses, but the cream of the crop is the massive +1% Shield Chain mod PER BASE LEVEL. It also buffs Overbrand to at least give you an AOE option. Cross Shield - 30% Shield Chain mod. That is all. Harve comes in as the first pick, having a strong 60% skill mod and 1% ranged mod per refine on its own, and another 10% skill mod per 3 refines with Randel's memory. Solid Spear is the first lv5 weapon on this guide and it boasts the basic lv5 effect of +2 PATK per refine, as well as 15% skill mod per 3 refine and 3% ranged mod per 4 refine. THE GEARS PART 2: ELECTRIC BOOGALOO ARMORS Automatic Armor A-type - Best enchant combination may vary, but in my opinion and experience, it's a mix of Attacker Force, Attack Power and ACD. Except with Shield Press, in which case, go double Attack Power and and Attacker Force instead. Phreeoni Wing Suit - This goofy ass suit is as good as you can get for ranged combat. STR Soutane - The almighty STR Soutane. I'd honestly prefer this over Automatic for Earth Drive, had it not been for my need for ACD. For Shield Press though, go for it. Illusion Armor A-type - The supposed 'budget option' but couldn't be farther from the truth. If you can stomach failing for years to get your ideal enchants, go Power x2 and ACD. Soaring Physical/Excellent Dexterous Armor - The true non-Grace set budget setup, in my opinion. Combine it with its accompanying Temporal Manteau and Young Leaf, and you get pretty nice bonuses. All 3 pieces are enchantable too, and it's possible to get 5%/5% ACD on armor and 15% ACD on manteau. GARMENTS Temporal STR/DEX/AGI Manteau - STR and DEX are for when you want the Temporal set combos. AGI for when you're not going with those due to superior mods. Fallen Warrior Manteau - Cheap jack of all stats garment that's only worth using if with Fallen Warrior Aura. Lots of bonuses based on your stats. Pirate Captain's Coat - The endgame of physical garments. At +12, it rivals even a +20 AGI Manteau. SHOES Temporal STR/LUK/DEX Boots - Best one depends on your build, but whichever one it is, your ideal enchants are either Bear's Might for damage or Muscle Fool for ACD. Either works as Shield Press and Earth Drive benefit from both STR and VIT procs. Automatic Leg A-type - While it combos with Automatic Armor, your reason for this is the FCT enchant. As with the Temporal Boots, go with STR or VIT proc enchants. Illusion Leg A-type - The weaker leg. As with Automatic, get it for the FCT enchant. If you can get it. Imperial Boots - At its current price, it's the ultimate budget boots for you due to its massive myriad of stats. Plan your skill points carefully if going with this as you might end up with it, Shield Ring and Phoenix Ring asking for skill requirements at the same time. OTHERS King Schmidt's Strong Insignia - The accessory to take if you're going for Temporal Boots, as the combo with Bear's Might and Muscle Fool are amazing. Brawler's Gloves - Budget option for when you're using Harve and you got either Fighting Spirit 1 or 2 as first enchant. Getting either gives 5% all race mod. SHADOW GEARS Full Penetration Shadow set - Check the sets. You only need 2 partner pieces. With both at +9, you get 100% DEF pierce. Almighty Shadow set - If your accessory slots are free, this is a great way to work over your VCT problems. Chain Press Shadow set - The official kRO-approved set for Shield Chain and Shield Press. Suffice to say it works great on these skills. Royal Guard Shadow Shield - One of the few class shadow gears that actually make it this far while staying in relevance. Nice skill mods for Earth Drive specifically. Major Autospell Shadow set - Specifically, the accessories. Gives melee mods and some weird autocasts. A welcome addition for when you're too lazy to use skills. Durable Shadow Shield + Weapon - For when you want both melee and ranged mods for Shield Chain and whichever AOE of choice you went with. THE END I don't have a 6th or 7th IG yet to redo my Shield Press and Shield Chain setups, so that will have to be for another time. EDIT: I found the Shield Press pic. Here's my current performance with Earth Drive. Wait oops. That's Earthquake. THERE WE GOOOOO. If you reached this part, then thanks for reading, good day, and build for love, not for meta.

  7. The Donafellian Physical RG Guide

    Interesting. I will have to throw money at one of my RGs to get them OverLit going. That said, yeah. I feel you with the whole crit CS thing. Even disregarding the slow ass pace of the skill and its smaller aoe, the skill is atrocious to use, but rewarding if you can get it going to shoot down most anything. At least, Nif-wise, we can use Vanishing Point to make up for the snail's pace by shooting for the in-betweens, but for Hel? The horrid stat distribution just kills most of your chance at hitting anything.
  8. Mmm. Just for reference, and I mean, purely for reference, mid headgear, Noble Mask reduces Devo VCT by 2s (it has 1.5s VCT). Oh, and MHP +2%. Pretty neat, if hilariously expensive guide overall. My in-game wallet cries equally in joy for another RG build, and in despair at the cost.
  9. New Years Contest 2020/2021

    In Game Name: Onii-samaRealm: NiflheimTitle: "Tank and smile, boys. Tank and smile." - Some Royal Guard probably The global pandemic is but a mere unfair mechanic we face along the way. Our buffs dispelled, gears probably broken, maybe the lag helped with kicking our collective asses too, but we stand tall regardless. Or sit down and chill, that's fine too. We hold hands and face the future together... mentally, because social distancing, and make the best of the situation. For it is in suffering that we find joy, through the darkness we see the light, through the void we see substance and maybe, just maybe, we're all just a little bit masochistic inside. Onwards to a new year! We welcome 2020 season 2 with a smug on our face despite the teary eyes and shakey legs. Let's go and hope that this post is still valid because I don't know when the deadline was supposed to be!
  10. Booster Booster Booster

    I'm on the lukewarm reception camp with regards to the Booster thing, but it'd be nice if we can have a second Booster character should we choose to go through hell again. I mean, some classes I think have Booster equipment as their BiS... I think? But most probably Boosted with beloved class instead. Idk.

  12. Wiki Changes

    Imo, a singular wiki would be best to ease the workflow into something less copy-pasty. With the Nif only caveat at the bottom. Also, the 2nd pic looks so much better, but it would be nice if the topics on the left side bar would be incorporated in the 3 topic groups. Lastly, it'd be nice, but not entirely necessary to have the database, or at least, the wiki topics linked to it indicate if it's Nif only or something. But yeah, TLDR; 1 wiki, Nif only note somewhere there.
