/btw sorry momo  for going off topic by so much LUL///

Am trying to settle the an Aderp awked skill build but having a bit of dilemma for certain skills. This is what i have came up with so far, if possible do gimme some opinions on it orz
Posted Image

Am also referring to this reference build on Duowan: http://bbs.duowan.co...215&typeid=4215
(My Chinese is t e r r i b l e but i think i managed to translate some bits)
Academic skill build: just add the skills up to the minimum 45 SP
Alchemist skill build:
Posted Image
Adept skill build:
Posted Image
Awakened skill build: Max All ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! (Yes i followed the same number of ! in the post)

There are quite a lot of details in that post, can go check it out - i don't have the capability to fully translate the entire post precisely so pardon me for that orz

I am also trying to come up with a PVP build which I am having troubles with due to the lack of SP compared to the current non-awked build -u- .. but hopefully i can do one up soon- (after all my assignments //shot)

Edit: Went through the forums again to sort of consolidate some data

Personally I don't think there is any reason to get PO and Epi, so I will go without those. Eureka is also very meh, so probably not going to put points in there either.

Was considering getting slimes and sacrifice, but it costs so many SP, not sure if it's worth it in any way.

Awakenings are definitely all must-have though. Can't leave out anything there.


This is from a complete PvE focused view, I have no idea about PvP.

Thks for you input o: (Just to confirm: PO = Poison Outbreak = Poison Break and Epi = Epidemic Bubble = Mixed Infection yes?)
I was considering dropping those two skills as well. Iirc Nicole didnt add either from her TKN solo vid.
As for Eureka, i might still add to be slightly more tanky-
Might also go for slime if i have sufficient SP after those considerations but i will not add sacrifice haha

Yes, Poison Break and Mixed Infection. Sorry for EU names.
Only reason to get those is Chemical Bubble Charging and I personally don't think there are problems with getting enough bubbles atleast currently. It might change with Awakening, as Icing Mass won't give bubbles anymore and I recall reading something about a change to the amount of bubbles from alcohol, but I can't find that anymore. The new Magma Jump Awakening Skill should make up for that change tho. Atleast I hope it will.

If I have any SP left over, I might throw them at Eureka too, but it's low priority for me.

I'll probably go with this. I'm not too sure if ice punch is as useless as always,

slime for the extra ice stacks seems gud.

Nothing beats a white bubbling hopping companion with you. :))

Now:

Lvl 16: 207%
Lvl 18: 214%

Awakened:

Lvl 16: 902%
Lvl 18: 931%


That's actually a fairly big boost considering it's a skill you are kinda spamming for your EXi. I think maxing it, or atleast getting it to 16 is pretty good. You could drop Eureka and all the useless poison skills to get those SP I guess.


Edit: Missing 2 SP for the slime now

i think this is good, there isnt any good from adding poison charging. You guys have fire rocket jump. So this looks pretty crisp.

CDN dragon raids also have 0 resist? I don't think any 4man nests in SEA have resist anymore (maybe DDN), but wow if CDN doesn't have resist for raids either...

Yeah, Astelie said that CDN IDN has 0 resist on bosses. That is why their "first stage dps" is insane.

Doesn't look too bad, I'd probably drop Eureka instead of Poison Charging tho. Poison Charging is free mobility + 1 bubble.

I think i might settle with this one

I have 2 SP remaining which i might throw into Bubble (Utility purposes - thou i think for the current content only for the punisher at Dragon phase 1...), icing punch / C2H5OH //

I took poison skills mostly for the bubbles (especially cause Elemental Flare requires 9 bubbles to cast) as well as what zuyi said, poison charging for mobility.

I agree, poison charging is an extra tumble. i would go for that.

what about the new alcohol + icing mass btw. does that entirely depend on alcohol damage?

1st question was about icing mass + alcohol = different damage mechanics. according to the new alcohol, casting alcohol on icing mass deals 3x alcohol damage, therefore 4 x alcohol damage total. if thats the case, maybe high level icing mass may not be needed, which sorta answeres your 2nd question :P i think i was looking through builds also, i picked icing punch > icing mass.

my build on the upcoming awakening

https://dnskillsim.h...--0-00-----0--0

i dun recommend to drop poison / chemical charging... thou adept will have max 20 bubble capacity after the patch.. but be aware that C2H5OH no longer gv u 6 bubble when u spam... so u may run low on bubble since the awakening skills need tons of bubbles....

Alternatively, if lacking bubbles (6) and using slime ends up lowering instead of increasing DPS, my build will be like this:

1% per bubble, how many bubbles does an adept and physician can stack after awakening ?

Oh they removed the int stack from eureka , whats left is 0.75% def. which means 7.5% def
