hi, how do i earn counters as a mara? i haven't been able to transform in dungeons, probably cos i just don't know which skill to use to gain counters efficiently? currently lvl 89.

(i know only main skills earn bubbles, but the only one that seems useful during grinding is the coil, and ripping is just for cm1. the rest seem to suck in aoe and ease of use and gaining bubbles)


and the bubbles get wiped when the dungeon ends

Practice it when you learnt black mara and the 1st class mastery. Dungeons are not a good test coz technically each hit = 1 bubble, and you need to hit 50 monsters to transform, which is unlikely and slow overall. Level efficiently and quickly and max lvl and test it and practice it properly.

Eh... I mainly get my bubbles from CM1. I just Haze > Meaningless > Turbulence > Insult. That gets me 6~10 enhanced contract bubbles. Ripping and hold left click, instantly 30~40 bubbles :D

You're still in lvling dungeons rite ? just use void coil to multiple enemies, void coil has piercing effect so you'll gain more bubbles if you use it to many enemies, same as gaining Enhanced Contract, killing 10 enemies with 1 Haze = 10 Enhanced Contract instantly.

And beside you wouldn't need to transform either when you're still grinding in blue wind plains cuz enemies still die very easy in there.
I started to frequently transform at lvl 90 grinding dungeons like Red Waste cuz they got tougher there.

thanks for the answers, became lvl 90 last night, and it became much easier in rw. just that i had the impression that it wasn't so hard to transform with da and sh back then - or maybe sh was hard too. or maybe sh was easy cos her damage sucked - i can't remember.

the non-main skills are just so much more convenient, to me (except coil)


it is just kind of stupid that we grind from lvl 50 - 90 without ever getting to use the transform skill. doesn't make sense to me.




something weird happened though, when i entered rhadames for the first time, for some strange reason i became lvl 91 instantly? is this a mara bonus?
