Currently, for beginners and casual veterans like me, it’s impossible to progress and join a legion raid or abyss raid without having at least 5 engraving for dps and support. To build a dps Mage Igniter build, you need to spend your liver and Pheon to make at least 3 engraving correctly, since you have to buy all of them in the CORRECT STATS. Additionally, the COST OF CLASS AND DPS ENGRAVINGS IS VIOLENTLY EXAGGERATED DUE TO THEIR SCARCITY.
For exemple, 1/20 Grudg costs 30k gold in SA. This may seem like nothing to veterans who exploit newbies(carry farm), but it’s absurd for a beginner or a returning veteran, not to mention other expenses.
We urgently need to increase the drop rate of all the beloved engraving.
Where does QoL live out of lostark? I want to have fun participating in the content and suffering in the mechanics and not chasing gold to try to be accepted in the content
Nah just move from that region is dead and a waste of time and burnout if you like the game.
By the time you manage to get 600k gold to buy grudge, you get a full roster of 5 bards and 1 dps to progress Hell fast in new region… With 5 bards gold will rain, just make them 3x3 + 2(heavy) and you will have 0 down time raids and spend 0 gold, so you can inject all the gold to buy books and accs for you super dps
interesting you bring in fashion brands because a fashion brand is expensive due to perceived value, not tangible value.
Those things they posted are high-cost items due to the real power that can be obtained from them, I could make a 5x3 as well for 100G but the 5 engravings would be total trash because that is the market value of trash engravings.
What I would say is don’t aim for 5x3 until you have at least 1 combat engraving at 12. and search for lower quality items to lessen the cost, also you don’t need to buy all 20 books at once, space them out over a few weeks.
Now I know someone will say “BUT I need 5x3 to get into grps” and to that I respond with…find a guild or make your own groups.
20k grudge that is when the Frog is active now imagine frog leaving. 500k-600k grudge just to complete the set.
Their blue crystals don’t help either 5390 per 95. This is just devs/publishers fault for not changing the price value corresponding to that region… then again I will be cautious since it is close to NA and some might want to change region because of the price exchange $ dollar wise.
But yeah I know a lot of South American players play in NA-W… I can see them with spanish and brazilian party finder… so yeah same as chinese. Join the club.
i’m not going to argue here m8
5x3 costs a lot
but it’s not something any ofus did in 1 week
if he doesn’t understand that the point of the game is to build stuff throughout time and to redistribute resources and allocate accordingly no amount of advice here will help him
plenty of lobbies that go with people with not 5x3s
we’ve been through this already
clown can be killed on ilvl with legendary set with 1 engraving
skill matters more
I’m from EUW so i understand their struggle to an extent.
they need to fast-track the region merge as this kind of price is indeed dumb, but that also means all the other players in that server shouldn’t have 5x3 either right? because to actually farm the gold required would mean you play at the somewhat hardcore level…
I have a lil roster in NA-W (mari) and man to find a run there is a titanic job, everytime I Login there and try to find a lobby for vycas or valtan there is either none or 1 to 2 empty lobbies wiith some wierd sht numbers… Like ¥~8865-002 no idea what are those…
I never got 20 igniter books and I had 5x3 (bis) for a while. You need 7/7 stone though and you need to actively look for cheap accessory (the cheapest u can find surprisingly is 3/5 necklace with high spec but very low crit and overall low quality).
Or if you think too expensive you should consider running off meta engraving like ether predator, etc. I bought Igniter 3 hit master 5 crit spec necklaces with 470 spec 410 crit for 30k gold. Then second 3/5 ring you buy low quality not the best but you get to gatekeeping 5x3.
