Some FAQs answered:
How much luk = 1 watk!?
Take your total luk and divide it by your total watk. For example:
- You're level 100, with 80 base dex and 427 base luk, and wear a 3 luk bamboo hat. That's 430 luk total.
- You have ilbis (27watk), a 13atk glove, and a 50atk scarab. That's 90watk total.
430 / 90 = 4.77
You can see this as 4.77 luk is "equal to" 1 watk.
Shadow Mesos or Shadow Web!?
Level 1 flash jump first or max shadow partner asap?!
Shadow web. Ask ANY night lord and they will tell you that both shadow mesos and shadow web sucks.
"but shadow mesos is good for things like when you run out of stars at zakum or HT"
If you run out of stars at zakum or HT, that means either
- You're not bringing enough stars
- Your team is too weak to kill zakum/HT
"but shadow mesos has a high KB rate. I see level 90 hermits KB things in Leafre!!"
Yes but if you keep playing to level 120 and such, you'll see that lucky 7 will KB just about anything as well.
"but if they both suck, why shadow web?"
It's not the fact that you max shadow web; its because you have to use all your points before level 120. You can max double stab if you want and have fun at HHG. Many night lords will tell you to max dark sight. Not because you "solo pap" but because you can dark sight anytime you want; hang out with friends while they're training, walk around without getting hit, etc. With maxed dark sight, your speed won't get reduced and you'll still have 140% speed from haste.
Not important. Not the end of the world if you have a level 1 flash jump. You max them both anyway. BUT if you do a level 1 flash jump by level 27, that means by level 80, your training will be slightly slower than someone who maxed shadow partner first.
I have 63128 zillion mesos!! How do I maek sin!?
Buy a claw and some stars, get out of the free market, and start leveling and learning.
I have no mesos!! How do I maek sin!?
Keep your dex low (maybe even 25), and find some crappy claw that requires no dex (maple claw, very bad kandayos; very cheap) or low dex (meba) and use that until you can fund money for dex equips to hold a dex claw... or you can stay dexless.
Should I go dexless or low dex?!
Debatable. It depends on the watk of the dexless claw vs the dex claw. See the "how much luk = 1watk" question. A 60 atk scarab IS better than a 50atk skanda BUT only at later levels where you can no longer upgrade your watk. You can add luk as far as level 200 so luk will always be increasing which will only make watk worth much more. 10 watk is worth more than almost 50, 60, or even 70 luk.
