@  111elmac : (26 April 2017 - 12:10 AM) is there any updates on the plats
@  Riley : (25 April 2017 - 01:26 PM) @jiesia06: Based on my very limited knowledge of Valaris, this is what I can tell you:
  • Neutral + fire immunity
  • ~3 Sniper Cards for life-leeching
  • 99-100 MDEF
Still, Valaris isn't made to be soloed; it's recommended you fight with a party (preferably with ranged chars). Also, even then, you need to have multiple sets of armors and garments—not just one (this applies to other chapter MvP as well).

Don't just take my word for it. Ask around in-game or just experiment with Valaris if you can.

Also, try to use the site's search function every once in a while. It's proven quite useful in my Experience. :D
@  Riley : (25 April 2017 - 01:24 PM) @heelsoverhead: Glad to hear the fix helped. :)
@  jiesia06 : (25 April 2017 - 12:56 PM) @Jacque???
@  heelsoverhead : (25 April 2017 - 12:41 PM) It's quite okay now. Thanks to @Riley.
@  jiesia06 : (25 April 2017 - 12:35 PM) Any Link Please for Guide [HW] in Valaris..Thnx2
@  Jacque : (25 April 2017 - 07:21 AM) @heelsoverhead Quite unfortunate for you then.
@  heelsoverhead : (25 April 2017 - 05:27 AM) Day 4 and still lagging. I'm not lagging on other servers tho. What should I do?
@  Riley : (25 April 2017 - 03:45 AM) @Shadow: You can, but with restrictions. For example, you are not allowed to use dual-logins to access Kage (PvP NPC) or participate in major events.
@  Shadow : (25 April 2017 - 03:27 AM) guys have quick question, can i (du4l log1n two acc @ one computer?) get ban or not? thx in advance
@  pawiin12345 : (24 April 2017 - 10:53 PM) there's two type of ff? i see
@  Riley : (24 April 2017 - 07:44 PM) @pawiin12345: Make sure you kill the Firefox in [brackets], like this: [Cursed Firefox]—not the one without. Try to get its two rings: True Ring of Stewardship + True Ring of Visibility. After you kill it 7 times, the dungeon will collapse (both Eden and Eclage), so be careful. :ph34r:
@  pawiin12345 : (24 April 2017 - 06:29 PM) how many times i nid to kill firefox
@  Riley : (24 April 2017 - 11:21 AM) @Moonlian: Thou must not say such blasphemous words, child! :o
@  moonlian : (24 April 2017 - 10:54 AM) @Riley give up XD
@  Jacque : (24 April 2017 - 10:45 AM) It's fine on my side... @@
@  Genuine : (24 April 2017 - 07:23 AM) whatsup with the lag
@  Y u r Y : (24 April 2017 - 06:56 AM) for divergent don't use the HG's so that the -100% def/mdef won't apply... and using just the armors would only give you a max of 99mdef... for you to reach 100mdef try changing boots ;)...
@  Riley : (24 April 2017 - 06:41 AM) @Y u r Y: Yeah, his GS is Divergent. is it true that the divergent set offers a decrease in MDEF? I read this from a record on the forums "Divergent Set Bonus (6 items - 3 HG, 3 EQ): -100% Hard Def, -80% Soft Def, -100% Hard Mdef, -100% Soft Mdef, -200% Max HP" . It's from about a year ago, but I suppose it still applies. (You can cry now, Splits :P)
@  splits3v3ns : (24 April 2017 - 06:20 AM) on divergent path my mdef is only 99 + 503 i wont reach 100
@  Y u r Y : (24 April 2017 - 04:05 AM) @splits is your GS divergent ?
@  splits3v3ns : (24 April 2017 - 01:41 AM) my Gun slinger mdef wont reach 100 is it bugged?
@  splits3v3ns : (23 April 2017 - 11:14 PM) jst use silver arrow :)
@  Dio Brando : (23 April 2017 - 06:22 PM) Helloooo
@  Riley : (23 April 2017 - 03:01 PM) @moonlian: You have to change the arrow you're using. At ~30%, try switching to wind arrow or something. If that doesn't work, keep trying other arrows (either way, it could take a while to kill him, so you have to be patient). I realize it's been a few hours since you've asked, so how's your progress so far?
@  Bulma : (23 April 2017 - 12:34 PM) Oh I REMEMBER!
@  moonlian : (23 April 2017 - 11:08 AM) @Riley yes i did,but the hp recover to 31% again :( , i'm a sniper
@  Riley : (23 April 2017 - 09:59 AM) @junioth2: Which starting point are you referring to? We all start the main town which is Moonhaven (@go 0). If you mean the starting point for choosing a path, @warp moonhaven 210 222. If this doesn't answer your question, please explain in more detail so we can help. :)
@  Riley : (23 April 2017 - 09:56 AM) @awts039: I believe that's forged/crafted from the Guardian Keeper, which can only be accessed by a Guardian path char. I recommend you to make one and also use that Guardian char to kill monsters to get path points and also gather Collector items while you're at it.

Dear ExperienceRO,

 

1. BACK TO BASICS

 

I'm not sure if you're aware that there are two kinds of Elemental resistance on Ragnarok Online. One has it from armor cards, eg. Dokebi, Ghostring, Angeling, etc. and the other are from equipment-based cards (sorry I don't know how else to categorize them) like Leib Olmai, Marse, Jakk, etc.

 

This you should also know that Elemental Armor Cards do not stack with Elemental Equipment Cards. The reduction has it that it takes into account the Elemental Armor Card's resistance, only then the Equipment ones are calculated (correct me if I'm wrong on this). This means that... If you're using an Angeling Card in your armor, and u're using 2 Jakk Cards in your Garment, the maths IS NOT 25% + 60% giving a total of 85%... NO!

 

But rather, the real scenario is that the amount of raw damage (not deducted by any resistance), you multiply it by 75% (that's the amount of damage you'll still take from Fire sources), then the value u get you multiply it by another 40%, that's the final amount of damage you'll be taking from Fire sources after taking into account the Jakk cards.

 

Having that taken into consideration, if you were to use an Angeling card, you are also imposed a penalty of taking an additional 25% dmg from Shadow/Dark sources. However...

 

 

2. SHR GAMEPLAY

 

Now when the above basics are applied to a SHR server, it becomes rather... sensitive primarily because of the 4 slots customization, and if that's not enough, you have custom elemental resists offered on various gears as well.

 

Therefore, it has become quite possible for a player to have up to 8-9 elemental resistance. What happened is this that... if you were to use an Angeling card in your armor, AND if you have 100% Shadow resistance, it creates a condition whereby you do not get penalized from Shadow sources anymore, simply because you have the 100% Shadow resistance on-top of the Angeling armor that you have... And this is wrong.

 

 

3. BALANCING

 

Therefore, as it only affects gears that offer high Holy resistance, particularly The One Armor and Odin's Armor, if these armors were to be paired with an Angeling, Bathory or Evil Druid, the elemental armor penalties are enforced by:

 

In the case of THE ONE or ODIN armor paired with:

 

1. Angeling Card:

-15% Shadow/Dark resistance.

 

2. Bathory Card:

-15% Holy resistance.

 

3. Evil Druid Card:

-30% Holy resistance.

-15% Fire resistance.

 

 

So yea... It had to be done... I personally don't believe in 8-9 elemental resist characters though it could be quite "fun" to have one...

 

<3 Jac
