Reached Lvl 50 as Sorc. What now? what's next?

25 posts in this topic

Posted

Hi guys, at last I reached level 50 as sorceress after playing the game for a couple of weeks ( I know its darn slow) but what to do after this? I am clueless. I want to pvp but i dont have the gears, where do i farm them? Is there any guide for clueless newbs like me? I got ancient relic scrolls from fishing ( I'm a fishing enthusiast), do i start from there (LFG boss hunt)? I want to get gears fast so i can participate in guild wars, sieges, or anything related pvp. Any advice will be greatly appreciated, Thank you. :D

First get to level 54 minimum.  Thats the requirement to actually pvp now. 

Second what i suggest is buying your gear if you can.  Im running a +15 yuria amulet and full Grunil set.  

Look at about 5 sorc builds.  Most will have the same skills to upgrade somrwhere and those are the ones you want to do :)

PS: thanks for the quick reply

Yeah it's slow. I recommend that you level in 1+ hour bursts using the +50% exp scroll from loyalty, though make sure you have enough loyalty to be able to buy more of them later. Gonna be much slower if you don't happen to have this option of course.

 

The sealed magical power accessories are as good as the base mark of shadow and witch's earring, and you farm for them by doing quests to kill the same mobs you kill to get mark/witch in the first place, so it's definitely worth it. You can PRI/DUO/etc. them as well, and they have fairly decent stats that just favor more DP than AP. You can get one or two in a day I think? If you do the hourly every hour on the hour? They're worth grinding for if you're grinding for the other accessories anyway I'd say, but I've stopped bothering for the moment.

Getting to lvl 55 should be prio #1 its fast and easy no point in not being 55 imo. Also you farm money and grunils while leveling.

If solo: 50-54 helms ( or manes now with the xp buff, but manes are annoying to farm ) 54-55 sausan garrison

With party: helm/manes to 52/53. Sausan garrison 53-55.

Next up is gearing. Doing daily and weekly boss scrolls will get you armor stones. Doing ancient relic scrolls is good too. Doing world bosses is a great way to get armor stones and hunter seals aswell and maybe a liverto if you are lucky.( dont do world bosses untill 55 because you WILL lose exp when you die )

Almost all mobs drop grunil in mediah so farming it is easy, id recomend sausan or helm. You can also buy grunil in altinova after doing an amity game at the repair guy "mevo". Getting your weapons and armor to 15 should be your next goal. 

Next up is jewlerys ( the part im stuck on :3 ). Find what accesories you want and start farming. Im going for 2x duo mos, 2x pri witches earring, duo bares neck and tree spirit belt. This is all preference some like more dp others like more ap.

Mark of shadows drop from abanddoned monestery shrine

Witches earring drop from hexe sanctuary

Belt from treants north of trent village ( extremly low drop rate, i will be saving up and buying mine).

I would say when you hit around 120/150 ap/dp is when you can start pvping properly. As far as builds and skill poins etc, there are tons of builds out there just try them out untill you find one that you like. ( im on my phone so i can link my build )

Good luck and may the RNG be ever in your favor!

Thanks you very much! btw one last question regarding the sealed magical power accessories do you know how to get the quest chain started? i got the sealed magical necklace from the goblin in calpheon but not the ring and earrings. THANKSss!!!!

Lol he says hitting 55 is fast and easy.  Maybe if you have no job I guess.  But it is long and tedious.  I'm 53 atm, and a good 3-4 hr grind gets me about 15-20% exp solo.  

Though don't let them think you can't PvP till 54+.  I kill people all the time with 120AP 120 DP. In fact a group of 5 jumped me at sausans and I killed two of them, brought the other three to 50%.  So it's do-able.

green grunil is about the same as agerian, what makes grunil better is the fact that you can upgrade it too grade 3 which makes it alot better. Even at grade 2 its better then agerian

you have to invest contribution points into a building in altinova. just check on youtube or google. I bet there are video guides showing how to.

Get to level 52/553 and you'll be great against a majority of players. if you wanna fight the big leagues then 54 is a minimum.

That is considering you wanna pvp loads.

If you're looking to just get progression and your PVP will be the occaisonal grindspot duels, i suggest focusing on getting your gear to +15. Do your daily scrolls in groups, either RNG your gear or sell stones to buy the gear from the market. Once your gear is +15, start getting on the accessories. if you dont have a lot of time like me, just pick one location which gives accessories and good silver and grind that. use the silver to buy the rest.

get your earrings and rings filled out first.

Hexe's bundles drop the Witch ring, Hebetetteratetatete tree spirit drops the belt. So if you can do as much of those that will get you stuff a bit faster.

Join a guild if you're not already in one. xD

Agerian armor is perfectly fine if you don't have a massive bankroll.  I highly recommend getting it to +15 and then working on Grunil so you can farm and fight effectively while earning the money.

As ur already far behind the competitive scene if i may use that word then just 15 ur agerian and upgrade it to blue, u can buy grade 2 armor stones as they pop up quite often on market. Id recommend intimidation as grade 2 perk as it reduces dmg against other sorcs n wizards on u. U will however have a much better experience if u join a guild that can include u as this is where the true fun lies in bdo.

Grunil is a better option compared to agerian, but from where u r now u may just want to save up resources for future boss gear and memory fragments from ancient relics. Id also advise in occasionally kill mobs in hexe and abandom monestary for potentially good drops of witch earring and mark of shadows, and if u get a few of these u could use failstacks from ur agerian 15 journey in +1 one of these accesories. If u get like 25 30 failstacks u could use them for that and continue enchanting on an alt on agerian. Id also invest energy pts into sausan garrison as then u make more money from grinding as ur lvling there since its the best place for lvling, u could also join the pugs in general  that makes parties there 51 52+

Agerian is perfect for anyone not entirely sure what their main class is yet. If you have the slightest doubt, use agerian and save tons of money playing alts until you decide.

go to heidel and set up a refinery which when upgraded to 2 can create these with a worker. when u click on the item in it itll tell u what mats u need. Heidel is also the town where u can upgrade agerian armor through an armor forge (just use search function when u click on the city and type Agerian with A). The mats u need is to be put in the city storage.
