  2. General Question on Homunculus

    pffuuu no idea, It was sooo long ago when i make mine, besides i didnt really heed to the stats alone. after all like as for players mages not only rely on matk but also on cast time and cooldown reductions too therefore a good customised AI counts way more into the actual damage output on a skill oriented homunculus, then the raw atk and matk ratios. also i didnt care much about vanil's skills i allways was on the concept that bolts are there for her to last till she unlocks ereaser cutter and xeno slasher. after that she shall never use them again (lot similarly like i dont use bolts instead of psychic wave either on my sorceress) but for example on Eleanor it counts greatly, eleanors dont have elemental HomS skills to vanil's bolt is the only thing you can do to make then hit a ghost monster. Just for quick reference, i think on lvl 99 vanil mine was having about 100-110ish str and luk, around 120 around vit and just around 96-99 Agi, and the rest about 90-is only. compared to that my Eira on lvl 150 now runs with 250 str, 304 Agi, 216 vit, 281 int, 278 dex, 208 luk. with that much agi she already has 469 Flee to begin with so its pretty much enough to tank for a decent duration nearly anything other then biolab 3 mobs and things that are even tougher. for example the moose from airship instance has nothing on her. as for aspd she have reached 190 aspd which is cap for homus around lvl 110-120. you can clearly see that status growth after turning HomuS is way more dominant compared to their early tier growth. i am pretty sure some people would say that Pixel is nowhere near the stats they could achieve and that you can do much better than this but i dont care much, i dont want to have the best possible homunculus in the world as long as she does what i want her to do i am fine with her, and not counting being a disobedient ditzy non-attentive support(tough that is due to her ai, which i set up myself to be exactly that way... so i have no right to complain) she allways have been there for me and my team so i wouldnt exchange her, even if i had the funds to experiment and get a better homunculus. as for the munching, 760*25= 95k(which equals using overed boost 5 times) is pretty much as much as embryo costs on the market. so yeah, she will tottaly eat you out of your zeny... mine has natural flee above lvl 4 overed boost and 1 more aspd then with lvl5 buff so i nearly never us that thing since i dont really want to facetank anything with my genetic, nor i rely on aspd so i dotn really find it usefull in my case, but maybe your play differently and you will make use of of the aspd and flee bonus.
  3. State of P2W and End Game and Balance?

    1. Of course solo some places still possible, but the game almost force you to go with a party. On iRO (and most of oficial servers) cash shop is full of ovepowered gears and consumables making the game p2w, but this not happens here, nova's shop is more cosmetic even with some items necessary tp improve your gameplay, here we have the gold coins, easy to access and with the possibility of convert them into cash point, anyone have access to cash shop even without a single donation. 2. Farm here is pretty easy, go to a farming place, colect valuable items, go instances and sell the currencys (coins, shards, tokens, instance rewards, etc) or simply buy a cp headgear and sell for zeny as you said, anyone with a free day and parience can be rich here. 3. RO is a unbalanced game, sadly we can't change this fact. But most of classes have a value even with rangers and genetics dominating the damage output, alternatives like rebellions, warlocks, summoners, mechanics, royal guards or glt crosses works very well on the offensive of parties, and sorceres, performers, arcbishops, suras or shadow chasers do the supportive and lure work very well. I personally play as RG, Rebel, WL and AB, no ranger, no geneticist, I play with the class I want without this pressure of "this job is worst" concept. Welcome to Nova RO, where the dream of a good RO server is real. (Ok I'lll stop) Star Emperors and Soul Reapers are coming! And Nova might be the first to get these jobs on hands. Stay tunned on the next episode of "More love for Taekwons". (Sure no more of this, I promisse)
  4. Today
  5. 1. Many choose to solo for more drops but I'd believe that there still is a large draw for partying in NovaRO. You may get less drops but parties clear content significantly faster than solo players. 2. this can happen but the Zeny/cash rate isn't nearly as hard as it is on iRO. if you know what you're doing, clever play can cash out more than p2w ever will. 3. Following kRO behaviour balances a lot of skills out, but class balance is always going to be skewed, certain classes do different things better. RO is a lot more dynamic than X damage = best.
  6. General Question on Homunculus

    @LurchingElf -- hi again! I don't think feeds will be a problem. What I meant was I can't afford to switch homunculi at the moment, as each Embryo costs a fortune. I've managed to get the current Lif to Lv. 96. Stats are again a bit questionable -- it has 8 - 10 points in excess of the average for STR. And just barely in the middle of the range for its INT. I can't remember how high the INT of my old Lif was but it wouldn't matter as it was in a different server. I've read that some values don't read right on the current build of the system. I've got 3 more levels on that little one, hope it will turn out with better rolls. Most likely not. According to iRO Wiki the INT range for Lif at 99 is around 95 ~ 113. I'm currently sitting at 101 if my memory serves me right. The most it could go up is 107, provided it roles 2 Pts. of INT for the next 3 levels. Still just somewhere in the middle. I am not sure if with Mental Change the damage per hit will reach 1K - I only have a 300 something MATK at the moment. Do the Vanilmirth still reach 1K MATK at level 99? I would probably try your suggestion of Amistir + Eira when this current attempt fails.
  7. 1. People group up depending on the instance and what gear they have. Generally instances like Wolfchev/BMD/ET/EC requires a party because they are next to impossible to complete solo. I would argue and say that most people tend to solo instances such as Jitterbug and Horror Toy Factory when they hit end game because they want to maximize profits. You wont be able to do that without getting the gear required, of course. So you'll be doing parties for a while either way. 2. It's easy to get zeny by yourself without paying for anything off cash shop depending on how you play the game. You can convert ingame currency like Gold Coins to cash points too. If you have a lot of money you could obviously donate, sell and not have to farm at all. But there's no point in doing it since gaining zeny by yourself and hitting end game is easy enough. I myself have two characters minmaxed and donated only around $50(for cosmetics). 3. There's always going to be a meta in any MMO. Generally I think everything flows very well together. From what I've noticed a lot of things are nerfed on Nova too. Both skills and items. Can't speak for PvP since I haven't played it enough.
  8. Hello everyone. Long term ROer here. Have played Renewal a bit on official servers. I love concepts but have some serious issues. I am hoping to find a better experience, but if NOVA mimics some of these concepts please let me know. 1) End game. End game on iRO renewal is really all about soloing. There are so many items due to how old the server is, not much grouping at all. Its all about going to gramps and doing your daily xp quest and then nothing else. 2) Pay for zeny. You could spend money to buy items off cash shop then sell for in game currency to players. This made it very tempting to spend money for some of the better items in game instead of actually playing the game. 3) CLASS BALANCE. This was huge. Classes outshined others to the extreme. Ranger had GIANT dmg aoe ability. The alchemist (forget exact name) had acid bomb which out damagaed any other class in game by LARGE amounts. This made lots of classes pointless as they were inferior in almost every way. How is the balance on NOVA? Same or better than iRO? Thanks for answers!
  9. need some help with equip magic ninja

    Hello. You said you were in need of help with ninja gear, but you did not specify the purpose. In that way, I will help in a general way. Let's go for points. 1 - Cast A good spell ninja has to -> obligatorily - - instant cast. Do not try to achieve this by means of spells (like spell 8), this will consume a lot of your equipment, and will end up taking your damage (you will need bazeralds or Infinity daggers, and this will already take away much of its damage, so preferably forget that path). Ah, just as clarification, the 50% variable reduction of the 16th skill does not add up with the equipment. For example, if you have 50% cast reduction equipment, you will not get instant cast with the 16th. Now that you've said what you should not do, I'll tell you what to do. Get instant cast using the traditional formula (Dex + Int * 2 = 530). (You can try to get a large cast reduction through equipment, but know that you will be a weaker ninja) 2 - Gears No, racial cards do not affect magic damage, only the specimen (Combo big ben, zakudan, etc.). Again, I do not know your objective. If it's for PvP, obviously choose Zakudam. If your objective is gold, use Pinguicula card.Se Want to kill demons, combo big ben and hell apocalipse. Anyway. The best weapons options are: Faceworm queen leg Crimson dagger Vicious Mind dagger Understand that these weapons work well refined. If you do not get them well refined, even a simple Knife [4] with the proper cards will outgrow them. Your armor is right, there is no better armor for damage. If your goal is pure damage, the card is correct as well. Seek to put attributes that you lack, though you will probably only need dexterity or agility. Your hats are ok, but make more use of the red lichtern, use a mid with slot and place red lichtern, and try to put on the upper hat.Use such as upper hat, skull cap or an item of the type. I do not know the attributes of your cover, but I can see that the letter is correct. The same for the boot. On the accessories, we have some options. 1- Maelstrom 2 - Magic ring of geffen tournament 3 - Hero ring + 5% MATK + 5DEX 4 - Ring of sarah / fenrir instance (+ 8 ~ 9% matk) 3 - Your damage. Understand that magical ninja damage is built by 3 pillars: Pure Damage (Magic Attack, Bonus, etc.), cast and speed attack.Procure maximize all three, or find a balance. Much damage with cast is bad. Little cast, a lot of damage and a little attack speed is slow. Try to have a medium high damage, a small or nonexistent cast, and an acceptable atack speed Last tip: Leave the intelligence attribute to the wizards, even if you are a magical ninja. Increase your luck. All pvm class must have a minimum of 50.

  11. need some help with equip magic ninja

    For magic probably infinity dagger with Spell Enchants. 100 base MATK (For each dagger) Weapon Lvl 4 and And You can get X2 Enchant Spell 8 (27 MATK each enchant) in each dagger. White knight card don´t affect magic, you could use magic racial card or the combo card that ignore 50% mdef with monsters with high mdef.

    Changed Status to Invalid Bug
  13. Autofollow through skills not cancelling.

    This was tested and shown to work exactly the same in NovaRO and in kRO. After casting a skill on an enemy player, you will autofollow the player eternally, unless you input a walk command elsewhere, or the character walks off-screen.
  14. need some help with equip magic ninja

    Hey, cool to see a fellow magic ninja! Let me preface this by saying that I am by no means an expert on the topic, so take these suggestions with a grain of salt: I would personally hold off on swapping out your headgear for now. The %Matk may or may not increase your Matk, either way the difference is going to be pretty small. You should focus on other slots first. Getting that Crimson Dagger to +15, getting a pair of Magic Intensifier Rings for your accessory slots and potentially swapping those Robo Eyes for Black Frame Glasses with Lichtern Red Card. This should give a significant boost in Matk and after that, maybe, look into that Skull Cap idea. I'm assuming you've got spell enchants on that Bazerald? And correct me if I'm wrong but I am pretty sure that White Knight Cards do not affect magic damage. Maybe look into getting a Mad Bunny shield for instances and put Nightmare Mimic into your Dagger and Nightmare Arclouse into your Bunny for the combo. Otherwise you could always put Zakudam or maybe EoE Int3. Hope I could help out! Edit: I just noticed that you have a ton of points in STR. Care to explain why? If it's for carry weight purposes I would recommend investing in Gym Passes. You should really get enough vit to be stun immune!

    wise choice i am glad that it was not a hack after all. a lot of people have complained about not being able to log in due to the server still recognising their previous login, even tough they were clearly not logged in on another device, so maybe it was a certain server related glitch, but i am really glad that you managed to retrieve your account after all!

    if it was really hacked, then you just gave away the access to the rest of your account to the person that hacked you... allways handle these type of requests in Private Messages directly to one of the GMs on the forum from now on... for your own safely.... you cant expect them to refund your every time even tough it was due to your own carelessness.
  20. General Question on Homunculus

    well i if you'are short on money then Eira is not for you! that wretched sneak-eater will munch you out of you money in no time if you are using overed boost a lot. not sure if you read it in the description of the skill but after the skill ends or is reused, it will generate 50 hunger, EVERY FRICKEN TIME! so if you dont want your homunculus to loose loyality due to starvation you need to feed it up again and again, so its making the skill cost essentially 5 x 760 zeny every time, it is harmonising with her resurrect skill, that you should not ever use unless you are in an instance that cannot be re-entered and you would kill yourself over not being able to finish it, because when you use Light of Regenerate the intimacy drops greatly, the guides are kinda contradictive regarding how much but as far as i remember when i tried it on this server it dropped to 500 intimacy which is way well into Neutral intimacy, thats was a moment when i told myself "no... that is just not worth it..." but if you have the money to waste then with overed boost you can regain that intimacy in no time. as for your idea of building her aspd based... well i am not sure how it will work, i chose valilmirth and turned her into a flee-tank mage. and she only very rarely runs out of SP(only when i heal-spam over 60k worth hp in matter of seconds) but i guess you can allways give it a try weather she is good at going aspd physical or not. mine packed up about 294STR by lvl150 on vanil base due to lif base that may be lover but not much more that 50-60 str, and that will still be fine with her high aspd. tough i set her AI to be oriented on skill cast mainly and she does use her attack skill pretty often even when left onto the AI only, not sure if that wont interupt your attack sequence. but on max lvl she casts her spells pretty swiftly so probably dont stop her from attacking well physically. weather mental chance will or will not count into the damage calculation of the skill, that i am unsure of, but you can allways try! also if it doesnt work out you can remake and try with Amistir's Bloodlust, that would be quite a damage boost and even regain some hp with is and also she would have not just flee but Def as well to tank with!

  23. Autofollow through skills not cancelling.

    This never happened to me, auto follow only works if you shift-click with noctrl deactivated and when you click on a player on pvp maps the character will follow him to auto attack, but not when casting spell.
  24. General Question on Homunculus

    Thanks, @LurchingElf! Appreciate you taking the time in sharing your personal experience. I was planning on getting a Lif then turn it into a Eira. I was thinking that, it will expand the bag of tricks this Hom S has. Although I'm not sure whether my idea was sound in the first place. Would it be possible to use Overed Boost followed by Mental Change to have the Auto Attacks of the Hom S at an extra decent rate? Eira's stat progression is naturally towards INT so this means it should go well with Mental Change in terms of Auto Attacking mobs. I know Eira has an assortment of spells at her disposal but I just felt that the combination would make for a well-rounded build. At least on paper -- I haven't played for very long to verify this in any way. I do understand the risk that this combination has, and you've covered all of it. A lot of the base Homunculus skills are overshadowed by other skills in the class / mutation progress. It's just sad that there isn't much synergy with Lif anymore. It was quite a power house back then. But given I'm strapped for Zeny at the moment, I guess I can work with what I have for now. It wouldn't hurt to try.
  25. Autofollow through skills not cancelling.

    I should try to explain a little further I believe. 1. The main issue is that the auto follow doesn't stop on novaRO until you reach the target (so what it does is literally auto-follow) 2. While on iRO it stops as soon as l you hit the cell, the player was at when you started casting the skill 1. connected with a bad ping (which you guys do not have) leads to a stuttering because of a mass income of commands to the character(auto-follow) which would not be the case if the character only would have gotten a single "walk to cell X" command like it is in iRO So what should have been tested on kRO is: Casting a skill on a target X and see if your character follows X forever (novaRO) or only until it reaches cell X (iRO) and then stops following.
  26. My Eleanor won't auto-attack

    I'm not sure about the original poster. But I am having a very similar issue and I have done the same things to try to remedy the situation but with no luck. I have even delete and reinstalled the game and the Azzy AI, I have also deleted my lvl 99 homunculus to try to see if a new one would work and that also didn't work, I even tried evey type of homunculus. I could really use some help on this issue =/
