I thought this addon would do it too, but it didn't. I literally just now had another instance of it not appearing. I think this is just for actual NPC's and not battlefield npc?

Lol ark angels are the worse high tier to farm simply because they cost 15 merits.

Leviathan most likely is your safe bet. Aside that, ambuscade

Maybe tanzen should be about same difficult as leviathan if you can actually sleep the tarus (probably on BLU or /BLM).

Did anyone ever figure out what unity shirts for unity leaders do? best I can tell is no, and if it does do something it's not obvious. The update notes (Dec 10th 2015) say "Calling forth your Unity leader's alter ego while your Unity shirt is equipped will grant you status effect bonuses that scale with your Unity's ranking."

You can pretty much sleep them on anything these days. I like to do Tenzen+Omega/Ultima fight as you knock out two at once, during campaigns though.

JP wiki seems to say it gives the leader STR+5/DEX+5/VIT+5/AGI+5/INT+5/MND+5/CHR+5 if worn when you summon the trust (lockstyling is not enough to get the stats) and the unity is rank 11th-8th.

It also seems to say that it's bugged and it loses the stats when you engage anything.

I literally just asked this question in the Windower Addon Suggestions the other day, there are a couple of suggestions there but in the end I just ended up manually going through my Luas.

//gs validate inv does what I want, but only for what's in your personal inventory and not wardrobes.

I've seen some folk wearing what looks like the Spitewarden purple red mage armor! Curious as to where this is obtainable from? Or was it a login reward glamour item?

It's called Malignance armor, and it's from the new'ish Lilith merit BC.

Fair warning. The fight is horrible, and the droprates painful.

It's really not that hard to solo it VE.

Put up August, Kupipi, Koru, Qultada, and Yoran (or whatever you want your 2nd healer to be), and melee it down to death.

Gyve strat works, but really, it's just so fast to burn her down than to TP on the Gyve and WS on her, and her TP moves at VE isn't that horrible. It's when you start doing E+ that it becomes a pain.

Superman (Return to Delkfutt's Tower) is kind of ridiculous. Even on easy his damn light blade attacks can one shot 119, in a regular dd set. iirc I got bopped for 3800 with shell on normal.

Just make sure you have some dt on

Has the order where "Smite" bonus is calculated ever been tested?
I know the static attack values (like those from the "attack bonus" job trait) are applied at the beginning, but what about smite?

Is it addictive or multiplicative with other att % bonuses?
Berserk, Chaos Roll, Indi-Fury, can't think of anything else atm.

Bump, anybody knows the answer by any chance? Couldn't find any data on BG-wiki, maybe I'm just blind.

Looking for some clarification for Terminal Coffers. I always see screenshots of Omen bodies at the very top of the treasurer list. I know people like to go for loud thud, but isn't the first item on the treasure list the reward from the gold box itself? If that is the case why not just run in and open the box and not risk a mimic?

Or is the first item on the treasure list the rarest item, so you should go for loud thuds?

Its all about theorycrafting at this point yet as there is no structured data collected (i myself stopped registering once i was convinced of my own conclusions).

My own theory is that each “sound” is an unique pool of items:

- Loud Thud: AMAN accessory, Omen body, reisenjima gear, escha ruaun weapons, rare merit battlefield drops (gyve body, etc), tartarus platemail, escha zitah pulse weapons and sphere bodies, +2 skirmish sacks, craft mat and the “bust”: vexed pieces.
- Thud: common gear drop from 119 content (regular drops from merited battlefield, escha zitah weapons/gear from T1/2, (probably VNM mats).
- Normal: random sacks.

About terminal coffer, my theory is that isnt a static category but variable. Thats, it can be an implicit loud thud or just normal.

My theory is that mars orb terminal coffer varies from normal and thud categories. While Venus orb terminal coffer varies from thud and loud thud category.

As its implicit, you dont know whats it. So, going strictly to terminal coffer will have a higher % of thuds and a lower % of loud thuds drops.

My own records shows that aiming for a Loud Thud from normal chests will lead to more total Loud Thuds than going straight to terminal coffer, thus more chances of the best drops.

My statistics average like 1 omen body, 1 AMAN accessory out of every 47 mars orb+ 35 venus orb following this strat.

Provided that neither are capped would I be better to use fastcast +10% or haste +10% in my midcast to get a faster recast time?

Haste as only half of fc is applied to recast, so in that case its 5% vs 10% haste

The question is clear but in a real situation its not common to actually compare fc10 with haste10.

Because even mage gears normally have enough to surpass Haste 15% So that you normally wont benefit the entire 10%.
