What's the Trick?
« on: May 09, 2019, 06:08:46 am »
I've hit lvl 51 but can't seem to locate the area, equipment, or spells to make up the huge gap between the starter gear and basic spells I have and the gear/spells I need to be able to take on any boss at this level.  Is it bigger group based at this level? 

I'm running two MAG.  One with a Tank pet and the other with DPS.  The last tank pet I find available cons light blue and can't stand up to any boss.  The gear I'm finding on stuff I can kill is basic with ok stats.

I've tried to jump into one of the "custom" areas, but my pet dies in one or two hits and then I follow. 

So, What's the trick?  Please don't tell me this server was set up for the server owner and GM's to play around in, because up to this point I've enjoyed it.

As a ranger/cleric duo with 200+ AAs and very good gear I can't reliably duo the custom zones. Two mages would definitely have a challenge. I suppose the trick is grouping up with your fellow players. You'll be amazed at what you can do with more toons.

We're working hard to release a zone that should fit with your desires quite well (duo-box up to a point).  It should provide an intermediate gear step for many/most classes, if you can get to the named mobs.  There will also be quests offering tokens allowing people to purchase gear to fill in some of the gaps they may have from other zones/quests.

Keep your eyes peeled on Discord.  Release of the zone should be coming this week (with any luck)!

Necroing this thread for the new people that might be lurking...

Veksar. Veksar is where you go until you have enough levels/aa to not get plowed.

Make sure everyone has gone to Shining City and EC tunnel for all their spells.

Taka is where you go to farm your tank/plate classes gear. Just bring a slower, a tank, a healer, and a dps.

After that use that gear to snag random world bosses for off pieces (check Kith for the easiest one).

Gather other shittily geared people to raid Devastation and hand out pieces for the Nevek's Trust aug: http://www.playaeq.com/quests-212/nevek's-trust/

Put that **** in your main hand and go to hatchery and make Naomity your ****.

Take your now beefy melee dps to raid sky. Bracers drop from ALL trash.

Get your bracers, clear the first island of trash, spam fast heal your tank through the first boss.

Farm golems from the second island for DANK AUGS.

Once your tank is Auged up- push on.

Go kill Vox b/c she's not insane like other bosses.

Just keep making incremental progress...


Unfortunately, I feel like if you chose a caster as your first class... you're kind of reliant on other people for any real solo/group progression post 50. Even the best mage pets get **** on outside of Veksar and I honestly don't know why.
