    Didn't see a post yet from TheExorcist​​​​​. Figured one should be started.

    Trying DW for the first time here. Interesting lily builds with gold and exp on the LB. Just got to 70 in 30 min. We shall see where the week takes me.

      Ouch...if in need of a cheap tablet option, I use the Amazon fire, works fine until you start pulling a good chunk of the map on some builds.

    I'm trying an XP/EG warrior farmer will fire lily and will switch to SCR mage for pushing. After some cheap AnBs I bought a 2.5k crate this AnB and am ready to farm tl80, 8:23 left on the timer. Tuca is my toon.

      I also did dual-classing this ANB, made a DW warrior with 4F/2WL and exp/eg stats, then switch to BH for pushing. Having enough gems, I'll be having 200% exp and gold boosters all the time, but still not used to DW but will try to gain as much exp to help me break my TL137 wall with BH.

        I'm just playing chill. Farming at TL85 with 1.5 hours used, 800CL and building my gold stock at 800k. I'm not rushing because I did not unlocked the 2nd skill upgrade slot, just used gems to max WW and upgrading ITZ, Charge and Rending Slash, saving all the books for my BH. Crafted at least +2300% EG and 2800% Exp, maybe lower but still enough to finish TL85 within 2 minutes (having trouble with Kara killing longer if ToS don't proc) that gives me 12-13 CL per run but will go to TL90 if it goes down to 8-9. Romme advised me to go for crit build rather than lily because it'll help when starting to farm at TL100 (also studied his video). Getting my rhythm because mobs are getting killed so quickly that I sometimes just watch the tornadoes to disappear lol

        steampunk the bad news is I already consumed all my event timer. I was forced to farm for more gold in my BH because of the elusive second 77 gear I can't get. I spent 25 minutes farming at TSM to buy basic crates, silver ore and gold droprate seems reduced this ANB. I chose my priority of getting at least two 77 gear every event. Luckily I got it in the 109th craft. I'm done this ANB Silver...

      Broke out a BH for this one. Using demo so far, for kicks.

      Aside from the disappointment of seeing one of my fellow players on the leaderboard with a truly sad, bigoted, and hateful character name, things are going well enough.

        He’s still there, in the 20-30s. Starts with a B.

        I came from years and years of stuff like that being every other player name in game servers. I hadn’t thought about how generally chill the Eternium crowd is until I saw that. Can’t escape it, truly.

      Did they finally nerf the Fire Lily? I used the same Fire Lily set-up and strategy as in Bronze (i.e., crafted Fire Lily and WoWS at level 2 for a Warrior), but it took me about 20 minutes longer to level up this time. I crafted XP on all gear and replaced every 5 levels (jewelry every 10 levels). I did not get any useful drops, and I only used the free 100% boosters (mushroom soup, ethereal tea). Could not buying the 200% XP booster make that much of a difference? Or am I just paying the price for finishing up Story Mode before leveling up to level 70?

        Balance changes require a client update. No updates since Bronze = no nerfs or balance changes.

        OK, I ran my second hero using only Trials after hitting level 10, and easily made Level 70 in 30 minutes. I didn't realize how much finishing Story Mode would slow me down. After 1 hour though, both heroes are pretty much at exactly the same point (trial Warrior went back and finished Story Mode to get the other 2 free companions). They both finished TL30 in just around 90 seconds or less using 2 e-boxes.

      Speaking of changes real or perceived: I recall two or more ANBs ago a different (higher) BoM availability rate via locked chests.

      This ANB and the last, I must have checked the better part of a hundred chests so far and I haven’t seen a single BoM. Anyone else notice this? Could very well just be me.

        echomirage Wow the Juxtaposition is real with this one. For the first time ever I was offered BOM's for my BH in two consecutive stages. The Defiler, and Anderra, I normally have to run Defiler 20 times to see a single offering in the main branch. It's so bad I have never even tried looking for them in an ANB. Everyone knows BOM's are not that useful for Stalker BH's, but the Magnetic Trap Bom I found, coupled with the Trapper's Belt, was dealing some wicked damage (upwards of 70% Trial Damage with only one fire damage augmentation) before I converted away from my starter Lily/Assault Gear and settled into full Stalker. I'm now using the Snipe BOM I found as I grind TL 80. It's actually having a minor effect, so woo hoo.

      #8
      What cracks me up even more is the attributes on these things. It's not perfect, but they're far better than the Reflect/Armor/Vitality/Dodge crap I'm used to seeing on found BOM's.

      The explo BOM is nearly perfect, and I'd be using it if Explo did any damage for a Stalker build lol.

        So I'm having quite the time at the moment, thanks to a Mag Trap BOM, and the Trapper's Belt. I mentioned using them earlier, and was intrigued, so I spent the 10 Glory and unlocked the Belt for fun. I was honestly just bored, forever grinding CL's, and a long 6 hours to go lol. Prior to unlocking the Belt, I was making decent time grinding TL 80, at an average of 1:40-1:55, with a best of 1:36. I was noticing that Kara was melting in about 10 seconds, and decided to look at alternatives to the Molten Belt.

        I liked the Idea of slower, reduced damage enemies, so I made a Trapper's Belt. I then threw on my Mag Trap BOM Bracer, for the extra damage bonus. I was not expecting much, especially because I have no Fire damage augments, It's obviously all set to Nature Damage in a Stalker build.

        I immediately beat my previous best run by 10 seconds with the new set up. I'm now farming TL 80 at 1:16- 1:25, which is a rather large swing of 15-30 seconds per run. Most runs, the Mag Trap will appear higher or near in total damage compared to the Snipe DOT (A rare sight indeed. Not even with the Snipe BOM, did the Snipe ability + the Snipe Proc combined, deal this quantity of damage). But in all cases, Nature damage sources still amount to more total damage, so the build is still doing it's normal thing as well.

        Mag Trap meanwhile doesn't care that I have no bonus fire damage, and is just blasting through and containing massively large groups of Mobs, and most importantly, actually helping in the boss fight. This reduces the biggest drawback of the Mag Trap build vs, Smoke Screen. I know that this honeymoon will not last, and that I will need to return to old faithful at higher Trial levels. Even so, I'm currently running max Exp gear, not many high level pieces, only a few lesser enchantments, and it feels like when I accidently put on my push gear for a farming run. Anyway, having a great time smashing TL 80 to pieces, and It'll be fun to see where the cliff lays for this build's exp farming potential.

        Here are my stats for reference, nothing special as you can see. Pretty standard stuff really for this stage of the ANB, although my Ability is lower than I'd like. A nice side benefit of the Trapper's Belt is that it neuters almost all threats. I have relatively low Health/Toughness by choice (favoring more damage/ABI) and was occasionally dying before this build. Now it feels like I'm going entire runs without getting hit for anything I notice, let alone need to dodge or run from. I'm about to root out the one Green gem I have socketed.

          Indeed! They cost me 1-2 fps each, but at 165 mhz I can accept 160 fps for the bling. Such is the price of vainglory lol. I wanted the green, cleavage ready tunic as well, but apparently that is only unlockable via events. I bought the poison guns and matching green bracers, boots and shoulders when I decided I wanted to support the devs, but wasn't going to pay for game altering purchases until they have an actionable replacement for the lost gems from adds. They did say they were going to work on it, so we'll see how that shakes out. I have the lightning aura thingy too, but it washes out those dope colors. Fortunately the cosmetics are account wide, and my warrior looks super slick all amped up.

          Wow lol, that is indeed both of those things! Let's hope that the Dev's add the ability to reforge BOM abilities soon. It's bad enough that you need to buy the recipe separately for each class, can not select the ability, and for whatever reason, the most popular meta skills seem to be the hardest to acquire... I'm looking at you Snipe, Frostbeam and Shockwave. Please Devs!!! Allow us the pleasure of tossing gems into another money pit, so that we can finally have nice things.

        This unconventional build has shocked me a bit. Still kicking butt, and leading the time race at each trial run. I keep switching to the Snipe BOM, and Molten Belt set up for my first new TL run, and this silly Trap Stalker repeatedly blows it out of the water, by 20-50 seconds. My gear is decidedly crap tier so far this ANB as well and I'm running with over 3000% Exp gain, definitely not push gear. so I don't know what to make of this ridiculous unoptimized death train. This approach may be old news for you OG Stalkers out there, but the difference between farming CL's this way or the tried and tested way is similar to how I felt starting an ANB with a Fire Lilly vs the previous runs without.

          Alright, I achieved today's goal of TL 100, so now I can chill for a couple days and use the 3 200% exp boosters I just got, and farm some quick TL 90's for mats. I just crafted my 32nd item (another bust), so hopefully the second half of the bag goes better than the first. That won't be hard to do lol, and my 77 is still in there, somewhere. Anyway, I really love how much truly lays beneath this seemingly simplistic game, and it's been a blast my first couple months in Eternium.

          Btw, the Mag Trap BOM and Tapper's Belt utterly roasted Snipe BOM and Molten Belt again, this time by a full minute. I tried a level 75 Explosive shot BOM with perfect stats as well, which also proved to be a definitive disappointment. I still fully expect King Molten to reign supreme soon enough as I progress into the 120's, but this random experiment is going strong far longer than I expected. Would be cool to finally get past TL 144 this ANB... damn you GAAAAAARRRRRMMMM!!!! I hope everyone's ANB is going well and proves to be a success in the end for each of you.

              Awesome my friend! And welcome to the most challenging toon to reach high trials and slowest leveler to run ANB's in the game. I had no idea how fast Warriors level and that some mage classes can place in the top 25 with a Fire Lilly still equiped. It was too late once I learned the meta, as I had already become enthralled with the class. Still uncovering its nuances, and learning new strategies every time I play. I love the BH, as much as I curse her when she's not listening. I hope your first run is a great success! Btw getting to 110 for the Celestials is pretty easy, even without spending gems. It doesn't get too bad till the 130's, when the limitations of the class start to reveal themselves.

              kurtcabage Replacing my characters with one of each class so I can run through story mode and get gems. Figured I'd do mage and BH in bronze and silver, since I'm the least experienced with them, and warrior in gold. Then I'll fill in out other two character slots with mages since I can run through story mode the fastest with them using FN/Imm

              DethStrike Challenging indeed. I'm running full Stalker with SA pistols, RF, MT, and Snipe with PA, PF, and TA passives. 750 Vitality on my XP build (680k toughness) and I keep dying! Trying to figure out the ability rotation and play- style for this build...

            1 hour left. CL 1922. TL 130.

            Will do final push later. So exhausted.

              Thank you, that's very helpful. I have the tons of glory to unlock the fury recipes so I think I'll give a try next ANB. Just one more question for clarity. By crafting bag I was referring to the calculator that determines the odds and the certitude that you will create 1 level 77, 2 76's etc. in your first 64 legendary set/unique crafts. Does crafting with the warrior effect your odds when crafting with the BH? Or does the "bag" reset, creating a new set of odds for your next 64 items created?

              Well, I don't recommended dual classing next ANB since it's only 6 hours. Not enough time to farm for mats and gold.

              About the crafting bags, I think it's all just RNG. Not sure if it affects the odds in any way. I did have 1 lvl 77 weapon as Warrior and got another 1 after resetting my toon. Also got 3 lvl 76 gear.

              Yes, farmed BoLs is enough to get all the skills to the second hero at level 10. 150 greater BoLs is the minimum amount and unlock the second upgrade slot to the push hero to upgrade the main skills to max. If there's some excess, go for the other skills for synergy.
