Super Novice Instant Cast
« on: Jan 15, 2009, 12:30 pm »
I wanted to try it out and was thinking about the calculations before making it.

What I came up was 99 DEX + 5 (Job Bonus) + 10 (Owl's Eye) + 10 (Blessing) = 124 DEX. I am unsure on how much DEX I need in equipment since Improve Concentration adds by %.

Meh, I've never made an instant-cast, but the accessories should be:

2 Zerom

Apple of Archer

Binoculars

2 Drops in a Hypnotist Staff [2] (Or +9 Lich's Staff, Staff of Destruction, or any other two-handed, or seemingly overpowered rod)

There's 12 dex right there... a total of 136..

That SHOULD get you to instant-cast with improve concentration and a hypnotist staff con 2 drops.

Anything else will be pretty damned fast, though.

Blessing, Owl's Eye, Improve Concentration, Rod with 4x Drops and 2x Zerom accesories gives me 99+48 Dex. If you have a clean death record at 70+ you get an additional +10 on all stats, and there's probably more cards or equips from where you could pull 3 points of Dex with ease.

Edit: Apparently I have been ninjad. Kat, a Super Novice cannot use Apple of Archer nor Binoculars, unless you have been Soul Linked...

I don't plan to be soul linked though.

Only thing I can think of is a Rocker card in Armor. Vesper card for headgear is not an option in my server. I wanted to use Angelic Set, but I can't think of any way to get 150 DEX with it.  :(

Myeah, Rocker card adds another 1 Dex resulting in 148 Dex. Only two points short, but already ridiculously fast.

It's an option, but I'm one of those that hates usable items.

I guess I'll just have to calculate the DEX for 140

Heh, I was agaisnt it too at first, but foodstuff is easily huntable, and since it has 20 mins duration, it is not hard to carry a good supply of these.

Might I recommend two Siromas or two Fire Imp Cards on a Stone Cursed enemy.

It won't be instant cast but it will be very fast and much better DPS.

I'm sure to state the obvious with this, but improve concentration adds 12% i believe and instant cast is achievable for super novie.


124dex+(4dex rod)+rocker+zerom+zerom=135 x 1.12= ~~fun~~

"Improve Concentration increases the DEX and AGI of the caster, and will not be affected by DEX received from cards and buffs (bonus DEX received from Job bonuses, armor and Owl's Eye are factored in, though). Improve Concentration also detects any hidden enemies within a 3x3 tile range of the caster. "

Having Siroma/Imp cards is a good idea, by the way. While you will not achieve insta-cast (except if you have the additional +10 bonus), you will be so fast that you're as good as uninterruptable and it deals a lot more damage.

He's not. If he were to get the buff dispelled or it simply runs out, he'll need to find a Soul Linker to have it get re-cast. Even if he dual-clients he'd either have to get the Linker to always follow him, or always worry about the chance of his equipment suddenly being unequipable...

99 + 5(job) + 10 (Undying) + 10(Owl's) + 12 (Improve Conc) + 10 (Blessing) = 146. You can easily push it to 150 just with Quadruple Dexterous weapon.

And I recommend the novice set, it's easy to get and pretty damn good, plus it's all slotted.

149 DEX = Less delay than Instant-cast, WITHOUT BRAGI.

Don't believe me? Try it out yourself.
XileRo is the only HR I know that has a reasonable PvP system. I did watch the RWC like you said, all I see is people spamming the room like every other gang fight there is in RO.

Is DEX's casting bonus in increments of 10? Cause if 140 DEX = 149 DEX, then I don't see much point in investing on it through equips or stat points.
