cliff sniping ?
« on: May 14, 2008, 02:19 PM »
So Ive tried doing this as my archer with maxed out range but It doesnt go to well, I cant find good spots to do this since usually when I go near a cliff theres either no mobs below or the cliff is to high so can't see whats below.
Is there a guide for good spots or anything?  I also plan to do this as a hunter, if I can find any good spots, anyone help me out?

There are very few spots to snipe nowdays, and these places arent really worth the exp to level up that way anymore, just go somewhere like geographers for faster exp.

Hunters have trap, thus removing any reason to cliff, you can hunt just about anything with a hunter. Try soil at low level, then move to bigger stuff. Remember to take advantage of your elemental ability by using proper arrow, and look for monsters with low def (unless you're build falcon).

Dry up? Hardly, their exp is very high for the challenge you require to kill them.
When you become hunter and get stronger, you will just kill them faster and faster each time you level up. Iv seen people turn 99 just on geos on a 3x server, took them about 1 week.

much seconded. geos give delicious exp, the only thing is at lower levels, you'll miss them most of the time since their flee is decent. Took a hunter to 70 in a day on a 3x once. Mandragoras--->Morroc Desert Cliff-sniping--->Geos

Arguably, someone who can stand killing same thing for a week is not normal.

Plus, you won't actually learn anything from geos. It's even worse than noobyang.

No one said a thing about learning how to use the character, just experience efficience overtime.
If you want to learn how to use hunters, get ankle snare, claymore and maybe sleeper/freezer traps and go to places like seals, anolians, stings, anubis, mermans, rachel and have fun, discover by yourself how to use your character.

Rachel and anubis being my top point for experience/time, anubis using ankle, rachel using claymore.
Stalactite golems are a nice place too, since its fairly quick to walk there (dungeon 1 map north of comodo).

Im not sure what to kill with snares at level 54/11  I tried those golems @ comodo but I hit for to little to make them worthwhile, I killed one medusa in the western cave and it was pretty good exp but it took to long and had to use up all my SP for just one

Get fire arrows and try soil in the field 1 south of louyang. Once you're higher level go explore a bit.

Rachel sanc is good at higher level, I personally prefer Odin sanctuary however.

A friend of mine took a Fireblend and some Int gear, and went leveling on Geos. With an Alchemist. To 99. On low rates.

what did you hunt at the odin sacntuary? It seems Im stuck, the only monsters I can kill effectively give to little exp, and the ones that give better exp are too tough  :-\

my trial will soon end most likely (45 hours almost up by now) not sure if I'l pay the month, it's a fun game but Im not sure what to kill next >_< it was pretty easy up till I got hunter

Where ever you plan to grind, you'll need appropriate equipment.

I level at Odin Sanc 1 & 2 killing Frus and Skogul. Sure they have high HP but the exp is sweet. I have a +10 quad santaporing composite bow and holy arrows and shoes with ancient worm card (10% bonus exp from demon), at 98 trans I get 0.03% which is still decent.

Don't go to Odin right away, get some levels first it's not a place for a level 54, I'd say 85+.
