Hello!

 

I just thought of some helpful tips for you guys to consider if you ever switch to solo leveling using mercenaries in the single dungeons. <this is for the full-support type priests>

 

By now, we all know that mercenaries come in different types and forms, each mercenary has its own weaknesses and strengths and it's necessary for us priests to determine which ones will work the best for us.

 

Points to consider:

 

FS have the highest survival rate in the single dungeon due to the main reason that we can heal ourselves. But our greatest weakness is that we have not much damage stored in us that it would take hours (literally) to get past high level dungeons if we will be doing it alone for most of the time. So our faith rests to our cool buddies, not the other players we chose (which btw all die pretty easily) but the mercenaries we have on our side. 

 

So what qualities should we consider for our mercs in dungeons?

 

1. Physical defense/Balanced mercenaries - For me, these mercenaries are the best ones suited for us priests. Most of these mercs do not possess high attack but their defense is high enough to survive sudden surge of mobs if you ever get trapped. Most of their skills are support-type as well.

 

Examples: abysmal knight, bloody murderer, jirtas

 

2. HPA rate - will you use an r4 or an r3 S? an r4 S or an r3 SS? If there is not much considerable difference in the attributes of the mercs you have, better consider the one with higher HP absorb. If they have the same HPA rate, then consider the max HP of the merc and their ASPD. I should reiterate: ITS NOT BEST TO CONSIDER HIGH ATTACK MERCS IF THEY HAVE LOW SURVIVAL. WE NEED CONSISTENCY RATHER THAN POWER.

 

3. Skills - If we could find mercenaries which possess AOE skills (Devil Rain, Meteor Summon, Heavenly Light etc) and has high defense and decent aspd, they are very preferable. A good example is the Happy Baphomet. It's skill is Devil RainII which also has poison effect. Rank S is enough to get you through up until stage 8-10. Ifrit's Meteor summon might be flashy but its defense is low that it could never last with you in higher stages. It is also more beneficial to improve AOE skills first as they boost your grinding more than the other skills. So if you got Poringring, use it to your dungeon besties with AOE skill. It is quite harder to find rank 1 or 2 mercenaries with AOE skills anyway so the chance of leveling the skill lies with the poringrings you can acquire.

 

Hope this helps :)

I do understand that Jirtas is a good merc considering its 12% hpa (mine is SS rank) and a balanced stats.
But what does her skill really do?
Fury Light - 30% rage bonus.
All i see is some sort of buff to herself and I dont really see any difference.

Anybody mind finding it out?

Sorry for the looooooooooooong post

i use jirtas ss as well and it's really good at dungeons. Rage counter indicates when they're about to use their skill. so it's good partnering jirtas with an aoe type since they increase the frequency of skills to happen for your mercenaries. This is what i understood so far.

Yeah, it's really hard to level with mercenaries with low HPA. Here's a summary of the HPA you'd expect from different ranks:

 

Rank 1 - hpa 1%

Rank 1 S - hpa 2%

Rank 1 SS - hpa 3%

 

Rank 2 - hpa 2%

Rank 2 S - hpa 4%

Rank 2 SS - hpa 6%

 

Rank 3 - hpa 3%

Rank 3 S - hpa 6%

Rank 3 SS - hpa 9%

 

Rank 4 - hpa 4%

Rank 4 S - hpa 8%

Rank 4 SS - hpa 12%

I see I see, I guess I'll be partnering her with an AOE heal Mercs. Endless healing would be awesome for high level SDs. :)

I use my Abysmal Knight(S) with Unbeatable Defense for my priest. It survives till 8-1 but takes ages to finish. So, I do 7-9 for lvling, 7-10 for farming/lvling.

 

I started to level on 07/19/14 with lv 69. Now I'm lvl 77. Not bad for a tanking priest huh?

I got 2 White Knights merce to help me out. One is normal and one is S both max level. Like what TTUPEG said, it's helping me survive until 8-1. Grinding and farming at 7-10 most of the time. I started SD at level 65 and now Im almost 74 all just in SD and im still lazy to do SD. It's really nice! ^^,
