About Kaeta-KT

  1. In PvE I go by cooldown rotation. Usually start off with Song of Ice/Fire/Thronesong. This because of the increased damage buff for 30 sec Thronesong gives. Then the other 3 chain one, though I prefer it because it doesn't have a cast time and can be done on the run. Then the double delay and 1-2 something else. That's my basic rotation. Paean of Pain is in the first rotation (after the double 3-chain, before the double delayeds). Then the 1-min cooldown full charge. (aka "Unicorn") to get my heaviest hitter deployed quick. (I don't do full dps spec so I don't have Treble Cleave, let alone Blazing Requiem (AKA Frog). Then the 2 3-chain+delays again. Then usually manage to fit in the 2 30-sec CD charges (Harpist Pod (AKA dolphins)), and the other one. 3rd rotation of the 2 3-chain+delays. Then I start firing off miscellaneous stuff like the silence and sonic gust (knockback) and whatnot. The 1 sec cast, 2 sec delay most basic attack skill is the absolute last thing I try casting.
  2. Weekly Server Maintenance - September 20, 2017

    It is not 300% exp. It is +100% (so double exp) event exp. The cake multiplies that output separately by another +200%, or 3x. So for a week, it is 2x3= 6x exp. For Friday, tomorrow, it (should) be 4 (100%+100%+200%) x 3x (cake), so 12x. Unless I'm misreading the "additional" to mean 3 (100%+200%) x 3x (cake) for 9x. Berdin stars for quadrupling that. Then next week, it sadly will drop down to just a 2x. *cries*
  3. Aion Memes!

    This is my every day life in Aion. It mem leaks and then crashes, between 30 minutes (lots and lots of people and no shift+f12ing), and perhaps 6 hours (off soloing alone). Then I have to force-murder the aion.bin process and restart. I estimate I get about 2 hours on average. And I have to restart my computer every 2-3 days from the +10% extra memory usage that gets tied up. Sure, I could buy extra RAM, or I could buy a new computer. But not worth it for a single game.
  4. Archdeava Gear Patch?

    Furthermore, although it will take a very long time, you can get Greater Supplements from Luna Weekly and untradeable [Event] Omega Stones from Luna daily. However, the rate isn't great. I don't know about the daily, but the weekly is probably only about 1 in 3. But it is free, quick and easy to do, and every bit helps.
  5. Server Merge FAQ - Updated: 9/22

    I went with Siel way back in beta and launch because I DO keep up on the lore and all the quest texts that people just skip, and I respect the Empyrean Lord of Time for her sacrifice, doubly so much later when getting the reveals in 3.0 that Lephar = Israphel who is still alive and gone batshit insane and so who DIDN'T sacrifice himself (the nyerk), making Siel the only one who stopped the literal destruction of the world. Because I find all the quest text fascinating in the game. Plus someone had to THINK all the quest text up for ALL the quests, and then TYPE it up, and (I suppose) proofread it. I'm on Siel, I voted Ereshkigal. Although you probably don't know me.
  6. quests?

    Funny thing is that Iluma is in the Elysea region but feels like Balaurea to me, and Cygnea is in the Balaurea region but feels like Elysea to me. Or: I've heard it said that people feel like there's more Asmos in Iluma than in Norsvold.

  8. Still easier than pre-WoW MMOs. EQ1 took many months to go from 49-50. 40-50 took better than 6 months when that was current content. And with AA that came out later, over years, and growing with every new patch (on top of the occasional +5 levels added), it literally did take years to reach the "cap" when it became hundreds, then thousands of essential AAs you had to grind out. And, aside from that, I play a game (Text MUD) that takes DECADES to reach max level. 15 years I've been playing it, sometimes 16+ hours/day, and I'm only about 2/3 through. (In terms of skill level, the real measure of power and ability. Exp is converted to skills over time, what are technically recognized as "levels" are almost mechanically meaningless. In terms of what would be called "levels", I'm actually about 3/4 through). Even worse, is that from the raw exp, I'm only about halfway through. I've been back in Aion about 5 weeks, in that time I've gotten 2 of my 3 65s to 71, the 3rd 65 and my 62 SW to 70, and because of daily Kumuki, my other 5 lowbie characters that were 44-56 are ALL now 67+. And that without buying Berdin's/Lodas things. Granted though, there was some double-exp for that. I did Fissure but got sick of it, before Kumuki it was mainly from 5Bill+ exp/week from quest exp in Upper Abyss. The only real reason I haven't gotten to 73+ is because college has gotten in session and that's taking a good 30 hours of my time per week, and at present I can barely do 2 hours of Kumuki and an hour of sieging per day, plus about 5 hours of Luna daily/weeklies per week. I don't have the time to do real quest exp grinding on top of that. The levels will come, especially when fed by the couple hundred Berdin Stars the event is throwing at me that I'll start consuming at 74. From what I remember looking at the exp/level charts,at roughly 6B exp/week, it should take about 10 months to go 74-75, and about half that for 73-74, and so on. But I might be mistaken and it's half all that again with the final measure of ~240B/level being what it takes to fill 75, I've forgotten what happens when you hit the last reachable level, if you fill towards the next level still or you hit a wall and don't drop. If so, it shouldn't take more than about 5 months to do 74 just doing upper Abyss and then some. Mmm, no. The 20 or so times I've run it on my 2 mains is bad enough. You mean...Kumuki, the current event? Since yesterday, I'm recording the exp/kill in Kumuki Cave by level. And each full Kumuki run is 4 of these. 66 48M (precisely) 67 49.9M (49.899996M actually) 69 53.7M (precisely) 71 57.5M (precisely) That is linearly progressing at 48M+1.9M per level past 66. I didn't think about recording my low alts when they were still low doing Kumuki, and now, as I said, the least of them is 67.
  9. As title. There was a ton of information to be had.
