You guys remember me posting the topic about the potion experiment? If not, that was the potion consumption experiment I've done on Valentine's day of 2009. Now I'm doing the experiment, only this time I'm experimenting on how much potion I consume when training at HoH of Strongholds. You may be asking "Wait a minute! Solo training at Hall of Honor? Why would you solo train in a party play zone? Isn't it less EXP?" Well if you are the only person there, yes you gain less EXP than you do with a full party, but I'm not here for the EXP. I AM here for the potion consumption experiment to do.
It was an annoying experiment to do as there were people coming in looking for a party when I'm too busy during the experiment. Horrible timing can't get any worse than that, can it? The main reason why is that too many people complain that Strongholds is a huge potion burner compared to that piece of pomegranate LHC. Like before, I used the countdown timer to help indicate how many HP potions I've consumed in an hour, except it is a different countdown timer from the one I used on my other laptop.
As you can see, I have consumed 331 Power Elixirs throughout the whole hour of this session. I'll consume less when training at Night Walker mobs alone (Advance Knight A) and more when training at Flame Wizard mobs alone (Advance Knight B,) and Soul Master mobs alone (Advance Knight E.) Training at Strongholds isn't as bad as training alone Prior to Big Bang even with Power Guard maxed as these mobs themselves do high damage and Power Guard was useless against non-touch attack. Potion consumption isn't my problem even though I have to spend mesos (and NX) on upgrading my equips and all that mastery book bullpomegranate which thank the gods I don't and have a crappy recovery skill that doesn't save me mesos since mobs do the damage beyond the recovery skill's recovery. Though, I am a warrior as everyone knows already, but still.
BTW the last one I've done wasn't well explained *poker face*
