Hi all, i'm considering to change from dps build to battle tank so that i can afk in sd/ed more effectively. currently i'm level 59 (closing in on 60) and my build is
Evil Wing S
+5 Life Link r4 def777
+5 Combat Greaves S Crit444
+2 Greatsword of Trial S
+3 VVVS Pauldron ASPD666
Sage Worm r4 Crit 444 x2
and a +5 Wild Tail r4 ASPD777 can't wear it yet
53 STR, 35AGI and 41VIT
Skills is 10 HP recov, 10 2h mastery, 10 bash, 1 charge, and 7 2h quicken
I'm still trying to get a good r4 mercenary SS that i can 99 it, but i'm not using diamond so i'm currently doing ED with Antler High Priest S, Dancer, Heavenly Golem and Yellow Acidus S (has poison that immobilizes enemy so its good for me). i can 70% afk on normal mode but i cant even complete hard mode even if i tried, low mercenary and my def as well i think. I have about 20m budget, was initially trying to buy a frika's b or d but can't find any un-refined ones.
is it recommended to change to battle tank or is it too late? what would be the change in my gears? should i be wearing a shield, if yes that what would be my weapon? i mostly play alone nowadays thus the transition, looking to just farm event dungeon for good merc and then go on to single dungeon to get some zeny...
thanks for any tips
