Lethal Reward: Astrobot Kid


Epic Reward: Glider Drones


Tower Boss: Des Garganto



Pack Epic: Spider Tank



Reward Tiers:
1-10: 2xs Lethal
11-22: 1x Lethal

My thoughts: 70% chance for both of the lethal's skills to trigger is pretty incredible. But he's slow, and the skills are mediocre. The epic reward is yet another blatant power creep that completely obsoletes the Nucleo Crawlers with its brutal-quality speed and proc. The pack merc is pure garbage with only a 30% chance to trigger its buff skill and only a 36% mod when it does buff. Don't waste your money on them.

Is it just me or does this art not fit in with the style of the game at all? It's like they're going for an overall new direction here. I'm not saying I dislike it, but it will be jarring placing these guys next to existing mercs.

Meaning no hot babes with large bosoms in this event? Ya... it is kinda weird!

Well that, and it seems these characters are plucked out of a saturday morning cartoon show rather than a pulpy b-rated sci fi flick.

Well with no real consistent back-story to use as guidance for the art, what do you expect? It's kind of like potporrui for the eyes.

But the Glider Drones seems decent. Thus I'm going to play some in this tower event to see if I can score a few. Thus consider me on Ronin status for this event. Already have one ally but four more slots are open.

You can always click on the name to follow the link to the Wiki entry I spent yesterday slaving away to put up.... but if you are too lazy to do that it's a 160% mod on the skill for the tower boss.

There has been a fairly consistent trend toward improvement on the art since I started. I like it!

The epic reward is pretty crazy. That thing would rape in BB or FF. Wish I had Res for sniping day on those bad boys.

Also tower boss hits for 640% total at 15300+ wis for 8/200. With tig buffs that's a pretty cheap solid wis raid team

That L is INSANE... 70% chance to kill at least two targets. Just two of those with a speed buff to guarantee first attack...wow

You've been away for too long Arthanius.

PVP is all about pre battle attacks, hacking attacks and the B attack on death attacks. Fast mercs are not viable in PVP anymore.

As for cheap raid teams there are plenty of attack based mercs better than that.

Your right though I need to get with someone on here for refresher. I can get 4-5 event rewards on natural regent right now so hopefully I can work my way up quick

I'll be interested to know how you go with that.

Are you going to be doing this spending no money and doing it completely solo with no borrowing mercs?

Yes no borrowing and no money spent. I'm at disadvantage though as I'm already level 170 so no bonus or regen from leveling. When I started over I had a couple gene bound PS and about 70 mags. Finished 171 for first event back but I won't do as well in pvp or raid till I can get a hold of event rewards that will make me enough to get some more up to date mercs. All mine are old and slow.

I think you should allow yourself to multi account - it might actually give you a chance of success.

Seems to be the done thing at the moment to farm and get a couple of reward mercs per account so you can easily get yourself a full set without having to trade for them.

Though, more power to you if you go the single account route...

Ive got 13 of the tower bosses. Going to make 2 OPE. Not great speed but if they get a chance to proc with a ope tig buff its a start. Also can use toward wis raid team. I've got 4 of the event rewards if anyone has something that would mutually benefit us trading.

Its funny how creative you get when you have low Res. My goal is to obtain 2x ope cannis 2x mord and 1 tig.

That team might work but probably not. It is still going to be fairly expensive to obtain those mercs.

I used to run Canis-mord-tig-doublegun-birdkeeper, which, when I made it, worked quite well for a couple of events. Then it seemed they changed something behind the scenes which meant that canis would get beaten up quite easily when the chain buff happened. Also, with the stat creep going on and some of the stun mercs, it just made things worse. One thing in your favour is that you are immune to hacking.

The cheapest viable 5 man team I know of is 3 hardened shields and 2 Prims. That team is probably cheaper than the effective 3 man teams that I know of, which I find to be a little crazy.

@danthepirate: Wait a second, how on earth can you classify a Crdnl Hardened Shield as cheap! If you have them for cheap, I want to trade for some. Seriously, I want to get at least one folks.

@Arthainius: I have a full queue of mercs that I am not using and that I could trade. I guess if you want to start up some trade talks (not sure what you've got to trade but), you might want to send me a PM. Hep usually has a pile of tradeable mercs as well...

@Zoar: Remember, cheapest is a relative term:)

I think it was the whirlpool PVP event which was quite soon after the wavewire event where the trouble started. I was helping someone out as the event got ridiculous - everyone was basically doing battles 27-30 over and over, using up stupid amounts of res. The team this guy had was a very nice agi team - he had a couple of providents, Jackson, hc etc. - basically the best team you could get before the hacking skills. The problem was that this team would pretty much lose every time to a team with a wavewire in it.

Then, last pvp, souperbean ran for his first PVP L. He had managed to trade for a whirlpool, a hardened shield and some other good gear. We all thought it was going to be a great team. We were wrong. Didn't work. Seems you need 3 of either to really make a go of it (which I find pretty boring really). I lent him my 3 man squad, he barely lost a battle and won.

Not sure what the point of all that was. Maybe to try and point out the cost of the pvp alternatives....

I think soup still has a hardened lying around. He might be willing to trade it.

Art, I've got a pile I'm not using which might help. I know I've got at least 1 Tigrey that can go over to you for cheap.

Also, your Canis might be dated, check out the newer counter merc when you have a sec. If you want some of those I have about 15 - 20 of them.

If you are looking to build a new turtle team look at the "go slap yourself" guy. He gave me fits last PVP. Good luck in the long slog of solo account free player. Been there, done that - have the t-shirt to prove it.

Cheers all.

Idk but cannis in 3 man is crazy. I'm not even fighting Ls until 21 win streak. Im betting v formation ...-...-tig-mord-cannis 3 man would land 30 win streaks.

Anyone else feel like glider isn't hitting as hard as mod indicates. Mine has 17700+ agi and I'm still only seeing Max 18-19 k per hit. Most for only 14-15
