New player lost in gearing options

19 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Hey all, new player here looking to gear up and kinda lost in all the options out there. I know I want to gear my Valk offensivly but that's about it. I did some research and talked to some people and they advice me to go 4 Grunil. My question is wouldn't 3Agerian/1 Zereth (boots) for the cast speed and extra enndurance (thinking more dodging in PvP here) be better, as this offers more base DP and to my knowledge DP can't be added through crystals. 3Taritas/1Zereth for the extra SP and endurance and even more DP comes to mind too. Since some of our attacks scale of max SP. Like the rangers stack hp for that.

Would realy like to have some input before I start investing all my silver ;)

As a fresh 50 myself, after reading lots of posts, it is a preference topic. This are the popular choices.

  • 3 Taritas with Agerian gloves
  • 2 Taritas and 2 Grunil
  • 4 Grunil
  • 3 Agerian with taritas or Zereth boots

 

I will go with 3Ag or 3Taritas since Grunil options are more expensive

Was thinking the same. Let's us save some silver for other things.

Can you get to 5 casting speed with crystals if you go 3Taritas?

Again, I have no real experience, but from what I've read, I'd say yes. 2 on helm crystal, 1 on Ag gloves 1 on gloves crystal and 1 on weapon crystal

Hmm, then 3Taritas sounds appealing with the extra DP, and cheaper cost then Grunil.

where is the taritas amity vendor?

grunil helm and gloves are 80k ea with amity in altinova.

 

personally i went with taritas chest boots, grunil helm gloves.  for the best benefits from each set and extra slots.

You can buy Taritas from the blacksmith in Heidel. His amity game is way easier than grunil :D

I personally got 3 Taritas with Agerian gloves, Yuria sword & Vangerz Shield. I got 5 casting speed, 2 attack speed and 5 luck cause i'm poor >.< I think I'm wearing the so called "meta" but it feels way too defensive.  I got LOADS of DP but not a very impressive AP. 

Atm in PvP I can kill anyone lower than my level quickly but if I meet someone my own or higher, the fight will last for very long until either me or the other player gives up :/ I need to work on my accessories as these can give a nice AP boost, but IMO you should go for a more offensive set than what I'm using.

What is your current stats at and which accessories are you running? With that set you should be doing some okay damage in pvp

I recommend full grunil, not only because valk isn't really that dependent on mana (as opposed to something like blader) but also because full grunil is flexible to use on all classes incase you want to change later on without the hassle of having to upgrade another piece. 2 Taritas 2 Grunil is a good set but using it on valkyrie is kind of a waste in my opinion. I would see why you want 2 taritas 2 grunil on a blader for example, but valkyrie not really since its really not heavy on mana usage and herbal juice is good enough.

valk get bonus damage based on your Divine Power ( 120 extra divine power from taritas 2 piece set ( with chest)) for a few skills.

10% of DP on last hit of SoJ,

10% of DP on divine power4

5% of DP on Ultimate righteous charge

numbers above are from BDOtome, might be slightly different in game NA/EU, i am at work and cant see in game.

I'm running full grunil and I've been thinking too, the 2 taritas for the 10% on SoJ. I honestly don't use the other spells though as most of the time I combo rc into ultimate punishment and lvl 4 divine power seems like a waste but use SoJ all dayyyy.

If a skill does 500% damage, and you have 100AP, does it mean that you are doing 500 damage? 10% of the +100DP would just mean 510 damage.that's a 2% damage increase on 1 skill, doesn't sound too important.

I'm doing the math on my head, not saying it is how it really works.

No idea how it works either, but taritas chest+boots adds 120 divine power, so shouldn't the 10% be adding increased dmg proportional to your max dp? If it is like your example though then I can see that its not worth it.

I'm not saying it's not worth it, players with much more knowledge than me like Andross love the taritas bonus set. I'm just saying that following my math example, I don't see how it makes a difference, since if it works like that its a 2% damage increase in 1 skill

Its just 2% on a standing person, but on a knockdowned one if you crit is so much more, thats why i think taritas and blue coral accessories are worth even if with these accessories you lose some AP.

you use taritas 2 piece for 120 divine power, to use more combos before having to stop, pot or block.

the damage is a bonus.

i am now also in the 2 taritas/2 grunil faction (switching from full grunil) - and the difference is huge for me, mainly because of the longer attack chains i'm able to dish out. the only bad thing is, that grunil armor looks great on valkyries, while taritas chest is super bland :P
