A little background info; my friends and I bumped on to this gem of a game by sheer accident a month ago and we're going hard at it. I have dabbled a bit into other classes too (to the 20-40 lvl range) but Iop is my fave char.
As per the thread title I'm lvl 97. I employ a Fire/Air build. Wrath(99)-Punch(97)-Bolt(96)-Gust(96)-Cut(93). 9 AP (soon to be 10 with Maca cards), 5 MP.
I have collected all the required mats for a respec but I'm unsure as to if I need to have it right now or save for later. The salient point here is that I am contemplating ditching Punch to a utility level and maxing Judgement.
Onto gearing now. I am wearing a full Dark Hurl set, Lunar amu/boots/ring, The One, Vlad's sword (to be soon upgraded to Maca cards) and Assassin's dagggers. All of them bought as the Guild we joined on Remington is sort of inactive and I lead the leveling race among our friendly group. Needless to say, I farm kamas right left and center.
I have followed many insightful relative threads and it seems that my next upgrade should be the Moowolf set, accosted with 3 Kraken items (not the helm). Several knowledgeable players propose the addition of certain Vampyro items, the Hurdy belt and the Minatsu boots. The White Crow set is well beyond my modest means. Meka set looks interesting but a. it is some ways ahead and b. it is pricey and hard to find. Magmog I can keep dreaming of.
At the moment, I have managed to secure the Moo cloak and have some 150k to spare. I will really appreciate any feedback on how best to proceed.
On iteration, I may have not been specific enough on what kind of tips I am looking for. Additionally, I though of some other points that require illumination.
A. Respec now or later? As said, the only reason for it would be to power up Judgement at the expense of Punch, which would be reserved for utility.
B. On specialties, I am done with Jump, Authority, Compulsion, Bravery Standard and Virility. Locking Pro or Increase as next one? Both seem to not excite the community much.
C. Moowolf set as the go to? And if yes, what would be the ideal - and attainable - compliments? Kraken*3, Vampyro items? Should I wait for Meka items or even set?
Thx for reading.
