New player Advice, please read - The Beast's Lair
on: July 19, 2019, 06:30:10 PM
The last 5 outings on The Beast's Layer (Final battle against General Marmalade) have been a nightmare. New players, I understand you NOT knowing what to do but if you're a Tier 2, rank 5 and above, THERE'S NO EXCUSE.
To all new players and those others who seem to enjoy running around like headless chickens, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, for crying out loud SHOOT Marmalade's RIGHT eye AND Tentacles that he shoots into the ground after you've loaded aleph in the pig in the first stage, when he starts spewing fire all over place. You will see a red pointer above his eye. If you don't not only will you not be able to load the 'Pig' with Aleph, to expose Marmalade's weak point, but he will TURN THE WHOLE PLACE INTO AN INFERNO! And that = GAME OVER!

To Harec's, Shae's and Iune's this is the SOLE objective for you in this mission. There is no other. If there's one of the aforementioned players in your team and Marmalade's turning the place into Beelzebub's back garden, then their failure is the reason you're losing.

To MSE, you need to put the leader command 'Attack Marmalade's Right Eye' to let people know what to do.

My last outing with a T2, R2 Shae and a T2, R3 Harec was a failure because even at level's 60 -100 they were utterly incapable of hitting mission objectives. Even when I was firing at the eye, continually asking for help they still never cottoned on.

Not carrying out basic mission objectives is the reason people not only quit missions but are also very wary of playing with you again. Shoot the right eye when it's exposed ALWAYS or the game's over. If there's an Antagonist even quicker.

i bet 10 bucks you'll see half players attacking the eye on the right instead of the right eye...
(and not only new ones, i assure you... since i have encountered so much T1 players who didn't know how to stop him when he was spitting fire)

recommended raiders :

- at least one character able to save the team and cross the bridge if a valeria antag shows up. like harec or doldren.
(even if she's quick a ginebra usually won't do, not enough health. i'm not even sure an hive could cross the bridge assaulted by shakura's sphere, same for hans or pretty anyone in fact).

- and then dealer damage to apply maximum damage to boss when he is vulnerable.
snipers are pretty interesting here since they can easily shot his weak point, doing lot of damage, even when he is not vulnerable.
