My keeper progression...

Post by Haloer » Mon Dec 04, 2006 2:41 am

Hi!

Thought I should make this a new topic, as this forum has turned to be my own little playground...

To continue from where I left off recently:
Just a quick update! Just got my 1000 tokenboard yesterday, that rocks, now just to get QL200 NCU chips, to be able to get a few more buffs in... And an update to my imps is also planned, I feel so gimped ATM! Wink


(Edit: Yesterday with some help from my orgmates I succeeded in acquiring Enhanced Pads of Dedication, they sure do look nice! Needed the help to get rid of Trash King and his Lackey, others I could solo)
Since then not much has changed equipmentwise, only upgraded the QL of tank armor and T1, as well as some imps/symbs, will update my equipment page soon enough. on the course of weekend I got my fair share of rockpiles, as I grinded my way up to level 126, so now I'm eligible to enter IS. This is in preparation to get me the notorious FBR and maybe/eventually AD. Must say about hecklering, it's not 'so' bad when you have an actual goal in mind, as I had with level 125. Ended up 126 as the team was doing well and fast, and proved challenging at times when pulls went bad... But to level only ad infinitum it would suck big time.

So the next goal is to finally improve my weaponry, getting fed up with Stygian/Frosty, despite the cool looks of the 'eye-sword'. And to do some mishes for my next set of nanos and to help out my bank balance. And of course to try and get into some raids for some AI levels and perks.

Will keep you posted again eventually! ;-)

Posted before I was thinking actually... But just yesterday was in IS, orgmates had some time, and got me the perma-pass and an FBR, so next goal is to twink it on. Problem is, I can't just level up and add to 2HE that way, as I did hit title cap at 126... still some 30 points short, will need to up imps/symbs a bit, atleast temporarily, as left/right arm are important not only for 2HE... But I'll do it soon!

Hehe, go Sepe. *does the cheerleader dance*
As soon as I decided which of my 3 tower twinks will also remain, the others will probly will be deleted, I wanna concentrate on one.
When that happens, I will finaly start the keeper I always wanted to.
Be prepared to have to answer a lot of questions ;)
And keep this here updated :)

30 points is pretty easy. here are some suggestions:

get some ai dings and stick them into champion of heavy infantry, right sleeve of the pest will add another 6, trickledown from behe adds 5 or 6, and jobe-made bladestaff is hot-swappable, it'll add 50...or just find a 132 wrangle? if you can, ask a buddy in-game to borrow some strong/combined merc armor since they buff 2he considerably. also might want to try and tradeskill yourself a set of infantry crepescule gloves.

Yup, just got it on, took the easy, but timeconsuming way... Started perking out of AoR and put 2 perks to Reaver, then did the bladestaff (+15, can't use the +50 one yet, not enough brawl...) swap, and then the 131 was just enough - and now I do have the thing equipped, nice damage after the Styg, although the speed lets something to desire yet. But getting there... Current AR is like 1036 when maxed. Doing 1.5K hits now.

Bring it on, mobs! :)

...since last post nothing much has changed, got to 133... Also with the help of orgmated team got the Scheol sanctuary quest done and also talked Ergo into giving me the Ado access ring on the process. Next goal is to equip some of those QL180 symbs, mainly brain for improved nanoskills, currently treatment is the problem, may need to level more for the trickledown into treatment, as it's capped until level 150.
Have also been exploring Scheol a bit, is actually a nice and beautiful place, although mostly deserted. Yesterday I did anyway run into quite a few people, as I found one static there, and gathered some insignias for the remaining jobe armor pieces, still need some Ocra insignias though. Then I got lucky and found the Predators uncamped in Elysium, found some PB parts and even the gloves dropped in that one spawn, later some 200+ guys started to populate the place so I fled. May not have much time to play in a while, but I'll try to get a few levels soon and start exploring more, maybe even check some of Ado out, if I can survive! :-)

Edit: Yesterday was the day I got my spec 2 done, and got me some finished PB patterns too, Ungulera, 2*Black and 1*Silver Fang, and an old one, Careening Blight. Now need to get them to crystals and pop them, and hopefully get some symbs. Oddly enough, the predators were again left uncamped, but dryads were heavily camped, and none ever seems to camp for the named hiathlins for Ungulera parts. Good for me!

Nothing much to report since last post, popped those PBs, got some QL70-110 symbs for my little adventuress, no brains though. Not leveled much, seems to be quite a dry season until level 150, as title caps are quite near in most skills I use. Will try to update some stuff though, get some alien NCU on and such, need to perk into it. And maybe take it easy and mingle more, as much of my playtime has been soloing lately, due to me being in Scheol and time being scarce. Be seeing you around and I'll keep you posted!

Yeah, I still try to keep this forum alive! :)

I really have taken it easy lately, just gathering stuff for my advy mostly, and buying stuff too, need to gather some creds next to make up for the 101 Chiro I bought for my advy yesterday. Have also started some alts, a to-be subway twink fixer, and a cookie-character for Teh Cookie Jar, a NM keeper! :) A bit squishy, but doing good damage for her level with the QL11 Kyr sword, thanks Dremora! The main has been collecting some PB pieces too, next I need to complete a few of them and pop them to pwn! :) Also need to update my chest implant, as the nanoskill it boosts is the wrong one... And level up a bit finally! Otherwise it's business as usual...

Ok, updated some of my stuff, mostly by upping the QL of my armor... Character profiler is borked ATM, so not sure if it's exactly correct, but thereabout. Some symbs are not correct as far as I know. Been really slow leveling, but yesterday got one level by doing one mission! Got into a team, all other froobs, as not many expansion players seem to want to do team mishes... I was the lowest one in team of course, others were up to 188. First try was with full team, enf and all. Rolled a QL207 mish, went in there, started bashing stuff, but after first floor got into some trouble with adds, wchich led to dead team. :(

Second try, 2 members left, but we took another 207 mission, and went in, this time better prepared, so managed a lot better. somewhere in the last floor before the boss our agent LDd, so we were 3, an advy, a soldier and me. Took us a fair bit longer to finish up mobs in that floor, but made it eventually, by the time I had levelled, the advy was like 1M off and the soldier 8M off. As I was the roller, and we were not sure if we could take the boss down, and the advy didn't want to die (:)) so near a ding, we decided that I take a peek at the boss room, trying to target the goal to finish mission. So I went full def, got all possible AC and other buffs and went in - luckily the mission target dude was just besides the teleport, and as I targeted him, all got XP, and the advy levelled! I went back down, and we discussed, if we'll try to take on the boss. It was the soldiers call, as he had the most XP to lose. He said what the heck and so we went up, and first luckily got only the adds on us, which were not too bad. Then took out the mission target guy, and stood in front of this level 211 bureaucrat mob. we started whacking/shooting the poor guy, the fight lasted like 5 minutes, as I had to use up two cocoons and flurries, as I somehow got aggro eventually. In the end I was at half health and the advy void of nano from healing me, but we stood triumphant! I can safely say I never had as much fun doing hecks. I can recommend high team mishes to everyone, who just can grab a team!!

Now it's near to getting the next perk, and 11 more levels to unlocking skills from titlecaps!

From experience with my keeper I'd say fbr is not a great idea to be using for too much longer, especially in RK mish I got a ql200ish type 112 on my keeper at 137 w/o ai armor, and it od's the fbr I used before tremendously. I am still using it at 167 (getting 225 ofab wolf on) and it is serving me well.

Also you said before you had to temporarily deperk aura of revival. IMO you should get rid of aor for good now or soon. After about perk 5 or so it stops improving much and stops being a meaningful heal. I personally apted to max bio cacoon and holy mark during those levels, but reaver is also a good choice if you aren't a big evades guy like me. Once you get to 170 the perk action "curing touch" unlocks in the blessing perkline and is an uber heal.

Yep, I have lost some points in AoR, they are almost all in Reaver now, just enabled Transfix... The big saw is being planned to become equipped soon, just need to find a decently priced 112... And up the specials skills enough. The 180ish symbs are also waiting to be equipped.

The best thing about FBR undoubtedly was that it was free to get! And the damage is not too bad either. But will see when I can squeeze into those i.e. get enough treatment, will probaly have to perk into first aid too... But I'll keep you posted, as usual.

Yes, next update. Got to 145 recently, upgraded some symbs, the right arm was pretty highly priced... Now I can self the FBR, so could get my tier armor upgraded, with behe and pillows got it to QL150. Getting some more research done every now and then. Found the joys and lows of high RK team mishes. Grinded through a pile of rocks for two levels. With two fixers as escorts got my Adonis garden key, so easy access up to that now. Got wasted in Ely catacombs... The bosses there are nasty! :( Was farming some tier components for my advy there, got some visions, but no embryos, as I was killed before the first boss. Well, you play and learn. Perked out of AoR, now I have reaver and cocoon maxed. Need some more alien kills for perks! ;) And always up for some RK team mishes, can team with upto 201 now I think. Next major goal is the TL5 mark.

Be seeing you around! 145 keeper LFT! :)

Once you hit level 150, you might want to grind out some axp since it's the desired AI raid level. Once I hit TL5, I reperked for DD putting perk points into Reaver, Heavy Infantry, and Street Samurai. I also put on a predator circlet and a ql 250 crit scope until I acquired a better alien scope. Also, I borrowed a Copy of Excalibur from an orgmate. You easily hit aliens for 2k-4k. The parry/riposte is the only tricky requirement, but luckily Street Samurai and our buffs take care of that :-) Of course, it's not a sword you want to take into SL.

Just incase I took aggro from the tank (or was acting tank), I did leave some perks in Bio Shielding.

This setup helped with not only killing the aliens, but also acquiring teams. I had (still have) a rather extensive list of frequent AI raiders who would send me tells as soon as I popped online. Otherwise I'd just go "/lft AI Raid - Good DD w/Copy of Excalibur". I was almost always top DD, only outdone by twinked soldiers or twinked MAs.

On top of the nice flow of AXP, you can also get some great AI HUD items.

Just a thought for when you hit TL5 as it's so easy to grind up to AI 15 (after that it becomes painful).

EDIT: Saw your setup. You'll want to swap in a ql 200 left-arm implant for sure, and perhaps a ql 200 right-arm implant for the higher 2he to twink in a CoE. Also, if you don't have a ql 200 jobe-made bladestaff get one as it is awesome for twinking on swords with the 50 2he (it is hot-swapable).

Hadn't looked at setup before but just did. Have some more ideas about imps/symbs looking at what itninja said. The right arm symb is nice to have IMO for the good balance of stats it gives, but the left arm would probably be better as a ql200 imp, with AAD. In foot, chest, and waist I would recommend symbs, those are some of the nicer symb spots.
