Mounts Galore!

This post isn’t really about helpful tips or rants, but instead, a fun collection of all the mounts that are not on US servers yet. Enjoy!

This is one cool horsie!

So obviously this Komodo is on an English server, but AeriaGames at the moment, does not have it…maybe if I beg?

Again, Hade’s Lion is on an English server that isn’t AeriaGames…WHERE IS THIS SERVER?

I SWEAR if AeriaGames gets this Kitsune mount, I’ll be the happiest player on the planet. Not only will it match my toon name, BUT WHO CAN RESIST A 9-tailed fox??? Crossing my fingers and praying till no end! I want this mount!

Basics to Battle Ratings

Besides retaining your social ties to the game, a lot of people’s main goal is to have the highest BR they can. (Even I attempt to raise it higher everyday…although I’m kind of lagging behind on that at the moment.) Anyways, I’ve listed just the basics on how to raise it for those beginners and a reminder to those veterans. I hope it helps some of you.

So first off, to view your current BR, click on your character (or any other toon if you desire to see their BR) and view profile. BR’s  calculate and average out your toon’s strength-if you want to know if you can defeat another player in a battle, you would look at their BR. Once on profile, underneath the toon should be a number in goldish yellow font. Down below is an example.

I know it’s in Chinese, but was one of the only images I could find that showed what a modern profile looked like since so many new patches have been added to US servers. (Also note, I googled this image and it’s source is from COSMO’S Wartune Blog. I do not own it.) The 166114 you see is this person’s BR-a high one at that too. A number like this will be displayed under every toon if you click on their profile.

There are many ways to raise that number and for starters, there’s astrals. (For a more indepth look on astrals-scroll down to my previous Astrals post.) The higher level your astrals are, the more stat points you accumulate adding to your BR. Also remember, an astral’s quality depends on the color too, green being the WEAKEST to red being the STRONGEST. (For now at least as it’s rumored sooner or later, the US servers will get blue astrals-which are stronger than red.) If you still aren’t quite sure what I mean by that, a lvl 5 green astral is A LOT weaker than a lvl 5 red astral. You can level up astrals by feeding them other astrals you do not need.

Another way is soul engraving which increases your gems effects. Although this is a minor way to improve BR compared to all the rest, it still helps a lot. During events, prizes, guild war benefits, and MP collections, you may receive soul crystals in which you will consume to level up your soul engraving. If you look back to the profile pic up top (the BR picture) and look in the left-hand corner, that yellow diamond with an 80 is where you’d click to do soul engraving. NOTE: A lot of people save their soul crystals/hoards them for soul crystal events that happen every so often. Sometimes it gives out measly prizes, but sometimes you can earn a mount depending on the event and amount of soul crystals needed. From personal experience, I know people who have 10k soul crystals sitting in their guild vault. Down below is a picture of what the soul engraving window looks like.

When you reach level 40, mounts are unlocked which means another way for your BR to grow. Again, through events, prizes, guild war, and all that, mount training whips can be acquired which allow you to upgrade your mounts stats-depending on which stats, will increase your BR as well. People also save mount training whips for events just like soul crystals. There are four stats you can level with your mount that coincide with your toon. [STRENGTH=PATK ARMOR=MDEF/PDEF INTELLECT=MATK ENDURANCE=HP] Be aware of this when leveling their stats as mages do not want strength lvled and vice versa. Down below is a picture of the mount stats page.

Blessing wheel DEFINITELY helps upgrade your BR, but only on a day to day basis. If you click on your academy, the tech page will pop up. Know that upgrading your skills on this tech page with kyanite will also up your BR. On the very top is a flashy button titled Blessing Wheel-click it. A wheel will pop up and for 2k kyanite each spin, your BR will upgrade all the way to 200% more than your original. HOWEVER, each daily game reset will also reset your BR, ridding the 200% which if you want again, must spin and pay the kyanite. You must have enough kyanite for this feature to work, unless balens are used. Below is a picture of the Blessing Wheel.

Last wheel I have for you is the Wheel of Fate. Through many ways including jewel hunt, you can receive fate stones to level up your fate. I find that each new level of fate you get, will upgrade your BR to almost 1k more. You can spin the wheel of fate for free once per day, collecting a range of fate stones from 1-10. To spin more than once, unbound balens are required. You can also buy chests of fate stones in the Amethyst shop. Below is a picture of the Wheel of Fate.

Some quick other ways to raise your BR is leveling and equipping gems within your gear. Make sure they are gems that are suited for your toon’s needs. Socketing rods-which are rare to get, but not impossible for non-cashers will increase the amount of gems you are allowed to have on your armor. Armor is another way to upgrade your BR. The arena gear is perfectly fine armor, but the gear you get from BlackSmith is a whole lot stronger since you can legendary it-this allows you to enchant further than the arena gear, and allows you to have all four sockets for gems. (A pain to synthesize as you need a certain amount of materials, but worth it.) Also, medallions which are unlocked depending on your honor will increase your BR as well. However, they last only a certain amount of days, and require insignia to be purchased in the Arena shop. When working on a legendary set, most do not buy medallions as they need all the insignia they can get. Guild skills will also increase BR. For an indepth paragraph about them, click on the All About Guilds page up top. The last thing I’m going to mention is leveling sylphs. The more you level and upgrade the sylph you use most, the more points your BR will raise. (Definitely do not rely on this method as only a few points are raised at a time, but every point in BR counts.)

Thank you! I hope this long post isn’t a bore, and some will actually find some use in it. Do know there are ways that make your character stronger that doesn’t necessarily raise BR such as skill levels and talents. Anyways, happy playing!

Lost Treasure

With a pretty recent update, Wartune got a new game feature called Lost Treasure where you, and a group of 3 others use maps to find different locations throughout Cloud City that has…well treasure. Basically, ‘X’ marks the spot. So I thought a post about the kinks and rumors about it will help us all understand it, or spark a conversation, who knows? I’ll tell you, when I first tried it out, I was thoroughly confused. Some help from guildies and friends cleared up the confusion to at least a basic understanding. Comment if you have anything to add to this post…I’d still consider myself  a noob on this topic.

First of all, you need some maps. To get them, go find Berdim in Cloud City. Click on map below your quest tracking pop-up and click Lost Treasure-should be right next to Circuit Quests. Here you have the option of getting one free green map daily, and if you have either Berdim’s Wine x8 or 120 balens (bound or unbound) you have five attempts to refresh and collect a better quality map. Down below is a picture of the map collecting window.

(The 1-click refresh is how you upgrade quality of map.)

Once you have your map, gather your party. If you want someone to join your treasure hunt party, then click on their name or character and select the ‘Party Invite’ option. Once you have a full party, have one person open their maps. Make sure you know who is opening the maps as they are the only one who know the location of the treasure. Once in party, click on the person (left side of the screen) who’s opening the map and click on the option of ‘Follow’ as you then will automatically  go where they do. Down below is a picture of what a map will look like to the opener…X marks the spot.

When you all reach the ‘X’ a fight will ensue, and as a group, you’ll have to defeat the monster to claim the prize. Okay, here’s a rumor I heard that I still have to verify if it’s true. Comment if you already know the answer! You want to try and get in a group where levels are relatively the same since the higher the level, the tougher the monster. (Not like boss super tough, but lower levels may struggle with a higher leveled monster.)

You are allowed to do this AND collect 5 times per day. You may join other treasure hunts after your 5 attempts, but no prizes will be given to you. And of course, a good thing to know about all this is if you want to leave the group for any reason, click on the small ‘P’ above your party members on the left side of the screen. There is a ‘Leave Party’ option to click. (My first time, I had no idea how to leave.) If you are party leader, you would click that same ‘P’ to disband.

I hope this helped some, and if not, I’m sorry. I tried. I’m still learning the kinks too and if I missed anything or to my embarrassment, messed up on information, let me know. Happy Playing!

A Small Debrief on Astrals (Lvl 25+)

So this tidbit is just a small look into astrals. I will NOT cover everything about astrals so feel free to comment any input you think is important. Something you all want to note is the order of astrals from weakest to strongest.

Green astrals-Blue astrals-Pink astrals-Orange astrals-Red astrals (Green the weakest-Red the strongest)

333

 

So these astrals are a glimpse of many. Holy Mysticality are for mages as it adds    to  their MATK. Knights and archers DO NOT want this astral. While Holy Fortitude is for ALL classes as it adds to PDEF. Holy  Brilliance is for ALL classes as well since it adds to HP. Remember, red astrals are  the rarest to get or most expensive to buy with points so in the mean time, use the  other color astrals of these same skills if your toon needs them.

 

 

 

 

222

 

Holy Enshieldment can be for ALL classes although make sure you have your  main astrals first. Enshieldment raises block-very good for knights. Holy Force is  an astral for knights and archers as it adds to their PATK. Mages DO NOT want  this astral. Holy Willpower is for ALL classes as it adds to MDEF.

 

 

 

 

Some other astrals you might get are:

Will Destroyer: Mostly mages use this although sometimes Knights do too. Archers DO NOT want this astral as it takes away their crit.

Goddess Blessing: Good for all classes after they have their main astrals. This astral reduces the amount of damage you receive.

Determination: Very good for archers and some knights use this as well. Mages usually only use this if they are a crit mage. This astral adds power to your crits and normal damage.

Charm: Usually only knights use charm, but from my experience…no one usually equips it. In my opinion, mages should never use charm as it only takes up a space another astral could take.

Sniper’s Edge: An astral very good for archers and crit mages. Some knights use this as well, but you mainly see this astral on archers.

NOTES:

-Astrals you do not want can either be sold or synthesized to feed to another astral you want leveled up.

-You get one free astral a day as it adds to devotion.

-If you level an astral to lvl 10, you can unlock the title: Astral Master. (Remains permanently.)

Hope this helps some. Happy Playing!
