They probably received AP from a Non-Xelor source and didn't realize it, as those are not effected.

I also don't recommend Aging. The bonus damage is mediocre, you'll have a much easier time mixing 2-3 AP steal with pure Air damage. That's what I did with my 140 Hybrid.

Unlike Mango I did use Sinistro, but I used it mostly to create obstacles, Teleport points or other tactical reasons than for damage/AP steal. If I had to redo the build now it would probably be Frostbite, Sandglass, Sinistro, Underhand, Punishment. The Distortion build I used to use relied on the Water/Air going first and procing heavy distortion which my Air/Fire would then trigger at his much higher damage. Underhand has a better possible secondary effect and at lvl 200 is only 6base damage less than Distortion assuming 6AP (150 vs 156) use which is pretty good considering you can use it at Melee and it is one of the strongest map manipulation spells.

If you realllllllly want to use aging you should stay Tri.

I slapped my sac in full Moowolf, hit moo into max Frenzy for 6-7 turns and then he disemboweled the sac for 7.7k and walked off... :\

Moowolf's Revenge I've been trying to work with a guildie to get this achievement... and it occurred to me, the state that allowed Moowolf to cast Revenge was a set bonus... has this been removed with the item revamp? I parked my sac in front of Moo for 7 or so turns before he disemboweled for 7790 damage making me think he had cast revenge only to be disappointed.

Can anyone with access to the game data confirm or deny that this is the case? I'd like to know if I'm wasting my time trying to help him with yet another bugged quest :\

It's currently a damage buff. They could change the stat to say "X stacks of this do Y if aging is applied", but I'm never opposed to Xelor buffs. I'd love to be OP again.

No, in fact no other Xelor (or summon in the case of Sinistro) can benefit from your cast of aging.

That information is dated, prior to the Xelor revamp Underhand would push enemies on Tick turns, and push your player character back on Tock turns. This mechanic has been removed and replaced with the current mechanics.

For weapons as a Xelor, I'd generally only be concerned with stats for now. I use my weapon about as frequently as I use Fugit for damage (Almost never.)

Aging does three things.
1: Tick/Tock turns it triggers bonus damage on Init lossx10 or AP loss.
2: It triggers the effects of Distortion causing all poison damage to be applied.
3: It will trigger all stacks of clocking off which push an enemy 1-3 cells depending on how many stacks you have.

These are essentially the only functions of aging. 'Move' sounds like it's a players movement OR a forced movement (such as Assault for Sacrier). Push is a pushing spell such as clocking off (Underhand) or Rejacto.

Water is designed for group play. So if yoursidekicks can't carry, you'll need a party. Water is a very hard solo element IMHO, which is why hybrids are so common. They let you mix damage and AP steal together.

Level 9 devotion is your most reliable way to gain AP, so early on I'd aim for 8AP, max dial, max prism, max devotion. In that order. While not as strong as 10AP Base, 8AP devoted to 10 still lets you use 2xHand/Punishment or Aging+2x Line of Fire or Line of Fire+2x Underhand.

In the long run, the most stable way for 10 base AP is stats+weapon+amulet+cape. Off AP items are expensive/difficult to drop and rarely see use til end game.

Check wakfu-elements, start hunting gear that's reasonable. You'll level quickly collecting gear, so I wouldn't get your sights too set on a specific set of gear unless you can produce money insanely fast.

i think it had potential but this current system is awful in my opinion

the biggest problem is the way secondary effects work with spells take for example a fire xelor

1 turn all their spells benefit from the single target modifier while the next it's area of effect

so xelors will only be able to use their 50% of their modifiers (20% single target damage on a piece of gear is actually only 10% damage if you total up the damage from a fight)
Honestly, my solution to this since I first saw the system was to focus solely on Crit damage and Backstab damage, Xelor's two most reliable bonuses. I balance the others out as much as possible since they are all situational (and likely) for Xelor. I'm in CC often, even though I'd prefer not to be. I'm in range, I single target and I AoE.

My only constants are wanting more backstab and more crit damage. So these are what I care about most.

160 Xel
My build atm:

15 - HP%
10 - Res
05 - Regen
10 - Leech

10 - Dam and Fire Res
10 - Dam and Earth Res
10 - Dam and Air Res
10 - Dam and Water Res

40 - Initiative

20 - Critical Hits
19 - Critical Damage

Action Point
Range and Damage
Final Damage

I intend to make some tweaks because I'm not happy with some aspects, but that's probably going to be my final build at least until I can flesh out my gear.

Realistically, you'll gain levels fast enough that I'd take almost anything you can get your hands on and not worry too much about finalized gear sets until end game. Especially because of how frustrating the randomized rolls can get. I've seen people drop 17+ stones rerolling a single item.

In my personal opinion, the +AP to teamate side of water is mediocre as hell. I'd just take Frostbite and Sinistro with some levels in time control. It compliments the other branches spells very well.

This was a great idea on paper... but double Merit LOSS has made people want to PVP even LESS than before. Only a handful of people on Nox are willing to fight if they think they have less than a 90% chance to win. So... I would call this a fail.

I was really excited about the idea too, since what the Merit economy needs for people to relax a little is MORE MERIT.

Honestly, 40,000+1year was probably a typo.

That's enough to sub for over 2years for $99 and comes with a grip of other stuff. Ankama has notoriously not been that generous.

One of the main reasons for the slurry of recent revamps is to try and change EVERYTHING before Steam release. This was officially stated.

I would expect a slurry of smaller revamps to follow suit to go along with them.

Early lvl pvp has too many variables, for all I know you're in lvl 30, gear, played poorly, with a non-optimized build and no guild bonus and he's in lvl 80 gear, with an ideal build, full guild bonus and played perfectly.

Thanks for the replies.

One question: Are Xelors considered pretty viabile endgame?
If you need to ask a question like that, you may want to reconsider your class.... lmfao. The answer should be clear as day.
