  • Old guy needs help.

    Hi guys.
    I've finally hit lvl 70. Been playing consistently now for a few days. Sadly I'm not pumping in 14+ hours a day like I was in the old days but I leave that for you young folks.
    ------
    guys I need help to better utilize my very limited playtime.
    I've looked through tons of guides wonderfully done but lord knows they just made me dizzy with out giving the info I seek. May someone can answer these questions directly for my old slow brain?
    -----------
    (1). Are we getting pvp?
    (2) are there, and if so what are the soft caps on each stat? (For example xxx points into xxx stat peaks at 68% then shows diminishing values after that point.)
    (3) for todays mages, what is considered the best or most bang for your buck attack speed?
    -----
    these questions are very important for old gamers like myself because dps is not always equal. You can have crappy damage but falsely inflate your dps with attack speed. So for me, understanding peaks and diminishing returns on stats is the only way to truly build a good character.

    thank you guys in advance for any light you can shine on these questions.

    It's still on the "to do" list, they'll "get back to it" later (from Upcoming Changes thread)

    Everything kinda "capped", other than Power:

    Assuming you wish to push to make your mage the GOAT, you'll need to focus on certain character attributes. Before we can discuss things like gear and jewelry post level 70, you'll need to know what attributes to focus on. Don't worry, the list is short.

    High level mage character attributes to focus on:
    • Ability Rate- endgame goal ~1500
    • Haste- endgame goal enough Haste to provide Attack Speed ~6.75
    • Crticial Rating- endgame goal ~45%
    • Critical Damage- endgame goal ~1300%
    • Power- endgame goal- As Much as Possible, preferably use CL's for this but some on gear is OK too
    • Vitality- endgame goal- anywhere from 130k-180k depending on play style
    • Experience- +800%
    There are a few high level mage players that advocate 1 attribute slot of Life on Hit. Typically, these guys are at the top of the LB with multiple Celestial items and can afford 1 slot of LoH because the Celestial items provide enough extra Vitality that they can afford to use a slot on LoH. Suffice it to say, you'll know if you need this.

    Hope that helps.

        These are rewarded in recurring Limited Time Events called "A New Beginning", wherein you get a temporary 6th character slot to take a fresh new "event hero" from level 1 to whatever Champion Level you can manage to reach within 1 week (the nominal event duration).

        There are rewards as you hit various event milestones (reach level 70, complete Story mode Normal difficulty, beat Trial 20, etc.). The most coveted reward is a Celestial Item creation cube that you get for completing Trial 80 in the event. This cube lets you create any item in the game (Uniques too) with custom-chosen near-perfect stats (think like within 10% of max value), plus a bonus +90 Vitality as a 5th stat.

        There are additional Celestial cubes for those finishing the event in the top 10, top 25, and top 100 players (for each hero class), as ranked by highest trial completed in lowest time.

        You can read more in Adrian's first post on this topic: https://forum.makingfun.com/forum/et...ed-time-events

                Just checking, do you see other signatures, eg my one with the links to the guides? If not, you might not have "Show signature" selected, it's in User Settings => Account

                    Sorry to have to point this out, but...

                    The people that wrote some of the guides, kindly took time to answer your questions, with links back to those and other guides, that gave the answers which you stated were not there.

                    For example, "Diminishing Returns" stats are covered in depth in the Guide on stats.

                    You might not have read enough, or didn't remember these specific questions being addressed. There is indeed a lot to take in.
