I have 660+ AP,3 parts Sparring ( i cant take a challenger soul shield) wich i have almost 1k CD. what i must have to play normaly???Maybe if i give 1 000 000 Euro to NCsoft they will fixed this stupid tower.
btw i can’t take challenger becouse after 27 flore i can’t kill the stupid NPC. All the time stun,every 3 secounds stun,daze,KD.If is FM all the time freeze no matter what.Destro all the time stun,every 3 secounds,For summoner or BD,BM i will not speak becouse BM,BD all the time air combo no matter what i do. So this is normal?
So how did i get to this point? Practice! It will be hard at first but you have to keep working on your skills. However, if you don’t have all the HM skills (expect Z b/c not needed) you shouldn’t be attempting ToI as a Soul fighter. Get your HM rmb the one with PvP cobalt punch, and learn how to cc chain. Watch what other SF’s do in ToI, copy their builds. The npc’s are not the problem, your game play is. Higher ap isn’t going to really help you if you can’t use it effectively. I got driven outfit with 650 ap, so with 660 you should have no problem.
Anyways, for Tower of Infinity it’s a mix of PvE and PvP. PvE being you have to deal a good amount of damage in a short amount of time and PvP being you have to keep the NPCs in CC chains to get the most damage output. This requires a lot of practice and patience since it all comes down to timing and using your best judgement in certain situations.
Let me tell you a secret, ToI is a pure PVE content because you are fighting against an NPC who is the same class as you, but its driven by scripts with precision. They are programmer to use the right skills at the right time, reading your movements and actions. The only difference is the gear they have compared to yours. Your advantage? You are a human being and you can react differently in all kinds of situations. Use that and get better in your class, USE YOUR BRAIN, thats your advantage over the NPCs. The use the same scripts every single time, with different scenarios.
Above floor 20 most of them AI have no CD’s, hell the damn Sum uses bee’s AND sunflower! Some of them are straight up bugged: SF/SIN CC’s then runs to the other side of the room to totally waste your clock, etc. I did it long enough to get 2k crit def on my main, and alts, and now I don’t go. Add to that the fact they made a mess of the tokens and now it pointless.
I thought I was seeing things when a floor 30 summoner used both bee’s and sunflower. I run a a 618AP sum with most the HM skills, I go up against a summoner above floor 20 and I can watch them get off their hammer daze twice in the time it takes for mine to come off cool down. The lack of cool down and perfect ping can make them damn impossible. There is also something really wrong with some of the classes.. Training room warlock stage 5, every time I got them to about 20% hp I get one shot. First time I was full HP, one skill and I was dead instantly. Happened several more times before I just said screw this.
A destro in the actual tower did something similar. I had it to 2% HP, I was stunned but his full attention was on my cat a few feet away, cat was constantly hitting it and I was using it’s CC’s since I can while stunned. His HP didn’t move an inch… not even 1 point, screen glitched and I was dead from 3/4 HP. Hell server was glitching out all yesterday, Imperial tomb.. dropped down started fighting mobs, graphics vanished for a fraction of a second and boom.. dead.
Ncsoft needs to go back to the days of old where any major update they would run a PTS that select players that signed up could run on seperate basically Beta servers of the new patch and find all these glitches and bugs before it was implemented into the live game. The last PTS I remember is Kamael for Lineage 2, I ran that PTS and that is the last one I remember seeing them do. Once they stopped doing it every update was glitchy as hell.
