Help for Battle Archbishop (Armour and Accessories)

Recommended Posts

This is addressed to whoever plays a Battle Archbishop (on either server).  I'm having bit of trouble deciding what accessories and armour I should be using for my STR Crit build.  Any suggestions for either equipment?

I have a Battle AB, but it's not crit tho. Mine's auto Adoramus.

 

If Crit is all you're after, you can use the Illusion Gears.

Illusion Armor A with 2x Power Modules is very versatile. Can be used  for most physical classes.

Illusion Booster L/R with Fatal Modules for accessories.

 

Also, if you don't mind, would you like sharing your build? I'm also interested in making a Crit AB.

 

Here's mine:

My build is...nowhere close to completion, but here is what I have right now (though I must admit that I haven't used my hat before lol).  I'm also not familiar with melee setups in general, so...yeah, there is that for me to consider as well. 

 

Build-wise: I'm going for STR-based Crit Duple Light with autoskill and it's been really fun to use.  My current goal is to get my CRIT chance as high as I can possibly can.

For gears: generally I go for ATK-increasing or CRIT-increasing ones.  ASPD is important, but if you can get that via foods, then I personally feel that you don't need to max if it's close enough to 193?  I may want to replace that card which increases Ignition Break damage with something more general...

I actually have an Exorcist's Bible sitting in my inventory.  I think it's more of a preference, since I want to get as much free CRIT out of Mace Mastery.  I feel that the Bible makes good use of the Matk side of Duple Light much more effectively, and since I'm already racking up CRIT and Critical damage %, I might as well use something a bit more STR-oriented.  That, and my INT stat for this build is a grand total of 1.

I don't mind trying out the Bible every now and then, but in all honestly, I just like maces over books.  Since Duple Light only targets one monster at a time, I also like the option of mobbing.  I checked my CRIT count last time and it hit 94 for me (Edit: I was using the incorrect DL build to calculate this before.  This should be more accurate).  Maybe I'll focus more on fixing my garment enchants, before aiming for a Racing Cap and the shadow set.  I'm actually thinking of combining the Duple Light set with the Adoramus set in the future.

If anyone is interested in my stats for my STR-Crit build atm...here's what I have.

Note: My AGI is locked to 120 base due to the Royal Guard Necklace and Imperial Feather combo.  

After testing out my build with both the Exorcist's Bible and the Illusion Iron Driver, I think I'll keep that True Seyren Windsor card.  In my case it deals around 65k-70k+ damage for Ignition Break, which would make up for my overall lower damage with Duple Light.

Here is my collection of Duple Light weapons thus far.  I think that if Lucis Flail becomes available with the rest of the Bio5 weapons, I'll probably go for that.

I'm curious. Do you just reply on Duple Light damage? Or crit damage as well? How much crit do you usually do?

I'm still trying to get gears for a crit build.

Here's a little vid of my AB. I'm still tweaking the stats. I don't need as much Agi so I might lower it to just 90.

About my build, I rely on a bit of both, but I lean more towards the critical damage side.  As you can see, my equipment isn't optimal, but it's working fine.  I'm still in the middle of tweaking my skills as well as my stats, too.

 

I've been testing on the Glast Heim Abyss mob with the melee damage.  I think I do around higher end 3k- lower end 4k without my Critical damage enchanted costume (+25% critical damage) with all buffs I have available intact.  Instead of Adoramus, I went for max Angelus and Basilica.  I'll see how that goes...once I get enough WB points or money to get myself a Duple Light shadow set or some tempest shadow gear.

Not exactly complete, but here's what I have for my Duple Light magic build, without the Ultio-OS.  Been wanting to compare Empowered Mace of Judgement (I have Spell 2/3/2) with the Bible for a while, and failed to make it +13 last time.

Here's my semi-updated STR-Crit Duple Light equipment on Niflheim.  I don't know much about ATK boosting cards for accessories, though =p

My abusive robe is enchanted with STR Lvl3/Lvl 1 runes.  I'm still working on my Duple Light AB on Helheim on my budget wallet though.

For anyone who wants to try DL Magic-based AB in Niflheim, you can alternately use these for Mid and Low headgears.

(I forgot about the existence of the coronet entirely =p)

 

On the Helheim side, I'm using the Grace Duple Light combo atm =p

Here are some additional gears I've found that might be suitable for Duple Light builds.  They are limited to Nifheim though, and they can be preeetty much a pain to get =p

Note: I don't own any of the items myself, I just simply @ii2'd since one of the items' description was not available on Divine Pride.

5da94d17ef392_ElementalOriginAlt.jpg.7d10545cbb9f7fb1b33dd900c35c1e76.jpg

Probably good for Psychic Wave/Duple Light/Celine's Brooch (alt.)/CD in mouth combo = which means you'd hitlock anything you'd probably target?

5da94d193ee21_FrontierBoots.jpg.3cee01e23220b89ecac8b7f33a28b61b.jpg

See above.

5da94d1acc157_BroochofHero.jpg.b3f2f2a42eb6d97e867cfa26d8373240.jpg

Possibly good with...auto-Adoramus/auto-Judex Duple Light build, assuming you own a Hero Judgment Shawl/Robe. (I'm used to the term robe, shawl reminds me of something you'd drape over your shoulders...hehe)

I did notice that there is an enchantment that resembles the 17.1 enchants that boosts DL damage floating around on Divine Pride that suspiciously looks like a 17.2 (?) update (with the new cards using the same monsters as 17.1 and all) with new armor, but I have no idea how good it'll turn out.  I can only hope they'll be worth the trouble ^^'

Here is a mini-update (Niflheim gear) but I mean, the Brave Judgment Shawl should be usable for both servers (I call it the tanking shawl - no good for bosses though)...

Yeah...as you can tell, I don't own the correct book. ^^'

Here is my test run of what I am using so far for my incomplete critical build in the tournament.  I wouldn't say I got it down myself, but I am grateful I managed to make it through without being disconnected.  I also realized that I could have used IC the whole time.

Here is my unfinished auto-Adoramus build in the tournament (Hell Mode).  I will mention that at this point in time, the Kyrie Eleison auto-spell is bugged as the Brooch of Hero is supposed to disable it.  I wouldn't recommend auto-Grand Cross myself, unless you like doing things for the heck of it, too.

Small equipment update, since I messed up my Hell Mode recording today.  It is also my favourite magic autocast Duple Light build at the moment.
