Struggling Maehwa seeks advice

8 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Hey guys, new player here.

 

I'm struggling to find a good starting point in what to do with my Maehwa...

I just got to level 56 and finished my awakening quest with this gear:

55b8c707f3.jpg

Helm: Grunil +5

Chest: Taritas +5

Hands: Grunil +5

Boots: Taritas +5

Jewelry: Jarette's Set

Belt: Ancient Weapon Core

Necklace: Ancient Guardian's Seal

Weapons: Rosar Blade/Horn Bow +15

Standart Awakening Weapon

 

I have a good supply chain running to create beer myself for the workers and to give me mats for leveling up alchemy, currently at Skilled 4 but i'm only ever crafting Pure Powder Reagent and Clear Liquid Reagent since i don't know what else to craft and i read somewhere these two are needed for something else anyway..

I have yet to make a single silver of profit off of alchemy.

 

I don't know how to make good cash and i'm sitting at around 15mil right now to play with to upgrade my gear..

Through all the events that were running around christmas and the new player bonus i aquired around 60 weapon and armor upgrade stones, 3 concentrated for armor and 4 concentraded for weapons...

I'm hesistating with upgrades because i read they can fail and destroy the weapon/armor which i have no money for to "just" get a new one if this were to happen.

 

Currently grinding at Sausans if there are no other players around because i'm always oneshot if they engage me.

Otherwise i'm at the Elric Shrine.

 

No clue what the ----- to do, someone help please :(

failing an enchant past 5 will only degrade the armor, not destroy it. You then repair degraded armor with the base form of the armor (another piece, not enchanted that you can get off market place for cheap) at least for Tari/Grunil. You want to get your awk and armors to +15 before you start going any further. As for grinding, Helms is another spot you can try, i used to make really good money there when i was around your GS.

I'm only wearing Jarette's set because it was given to me and the +5ap setboni makes me not want to swap just one earring for a Witch's Earring since i'd loose 4ap in the process... There have been many conflicting advices for different builds but one reccuring problem that comes up what people playing Maehwa say is that we should look for some accuracy? Thats why i went for Rosar weapons and the Ancient Belt/Necklace Set, but what about the other jewelry items?

So 6 accuracy (3 per earring) overall is enough? I already have Rosar weapons and Ancient belt/necklace for the accuracy bonus they give me, the added 10% resistance ignore seems pretty OP.. From what i've read is that accuracy is supposed to be pretty important as a maehwa. My thought process was that these items would give me a shitload of accuracy and i can go full AP on jewelry.

Weapons and armor can't be destroyed through enchanting, only accessories. Jarette's is fine as a start I guess. Not sure if 6 piece Jarette would be better than ur current accesory setup tho, don't know the ancient stats. Get ur awakening to 7 for now (can't fail up to that, up to 5 for armor as also mentioned by someone else here). Do ur scrolls. You could get ur mainhand and offhand to pri, should be very easy. Not sure if u should do sausan's bcuz of the low stats. Depends on how fast u clear them. Can't help alot with lifeskills. Save ur loyalties for weight limit expansion. Eat food regularly to lvl up health for more hp.

And don't be so obsessed with accuracy, it's mainly needed for PvP, but not much for slaying mobs which you should do to improve ur gear alot and lvl up atm.

you use 2 tri red corals, at least, also most of your ACC comes from bhegs, before that you can pretty much ignore acc anyway, because you'll only pve, pvp without bhegs is futile pretty much

I'd suggest that you use the green awakening weapon and get it to +15 instead of the blue one because you save more silver that way and repair cost will be cheaper. You have to use memory fragment or another blue awakening spear to repair your blue awaken spear durability which will cost you a lot. However, you can always use the blue one if you think you have enough resources to repair the durability after all the failed enchantment. Afterward, you should work on getting all your armors to +15 and then try to get better accessories when you can.
