War Farming vs Water Farming

Which one is better? Also, should I bother bless farming? I have full 1 soc srgs, only annoying thing with warrior farming is I can't use my talismans before 100 and I don't want to upgrade my srgs to high level to then have to reborn them.

I have full 1 soc drag and full dual spgs (full blessed already), but as for my drags, only my ring, neck + boots are blessed. Actually, neither are my trojan's weapons, (120 and 130 weapons and I don't particularly wanna reborn a 130 club and then find 10 DBs). Also should I use a +9 longhammer? I know wand is the leveling weapon but the Longhammer is +9 so I can 1 hit SM mobs with the srgs.

Also (I'd be doing this later on) do you think it's worth reborning my archer just to bless my bow or coat? My friend has a 2nd rb archer I can use.

War is costly but fast.
Water is cheap but probably a bit slower, and you need epic archer gears.

Which hardly makes sense because if you have epic archer gears than why even give a crap about dbs.

u have just the opposite Devenhoe, archers are the one that cost more and takes longer to get started... how long u think it takes to make a 130 archer from scratch? XD...

i started w/.. full elites+2 elite 2rdg wand, rdg armor, total of about 3 DBs worth of equip.. took a while to lvl, but after a few warrs... i'm not wat...

[E] SDG +5 Helm
[E] +3 Neck
[E] +4 Ring
[E] SDG SDG +4 Wand
[E] SDG +4 Armor
[R] SRG +3 Boots

thats.. 60% dragons (imo thats the magic number not 45% which most people suggest)... and 25% rains which is really nice, just need a soc neck/ring and my warr gear is completely done and i can start spending the DBs on my main char's gear
  • 1-80||90 = 1-2 hour (plvl/self-lvling)
  • 80||90-110 = 1.5 hours (slingers)
  • 110-116 = 2 hours (BullMonsters/AS) [somewhere in between vamp bats actually gives more exp, forgot what lvls
  • 116-120 = 1.5 hours

so total = ~6 hours (about 5 exp pots [i don't buy pots i get dbl exp from free heaven's blessing on the like 20 accounts i've made from events ])

so total time = 6 hours
total profit = ~2 DBs minus (100 to 200) mets


i know archers w/ 8+ SDGs, super bow/ring that takes a little over 10 hours to make a water . . .

With that gears it'll cost you the 2 dbs or w.e to upgrade it.

War farming is actually cheaper if you have 2 sets of gear. Since defence only matters up until level 100, you really only need to have defence gears of level 67-82. What you can do is have two or three weapons and rings and have them at different levels so that you don't even need to use mets to upgrade gear since you will be 1 hitting the mobs. That being said, you need your weapons to be powerful enough to do that, or have full 7 (9 with shield) sockets.

I'm trying to convince my friend to do that...he's procrastinating.

If I were to farm, I'd warrior farm. It MIGHT take a little longer, but it gives the mentor ~20 exp balls, which is always nice

waterfarming.

Just made water from 93 to 98 in 15 mins, from 98 to 110 in 32 mins and from 110 PKed it to 120 in 9 mins.


So yes, water farming kicks ass.

Should I just forget about the blessing then? :/ Infact is there any point in it without DB buying? I mean it'll take a bit to get it all -5%. My tao is a mixture of -3 and -5 but that's because a friend who bought DBs helped and he quit lol

Ew, I hate making 120 waters , although TQ made it easy for botters. Just SV with talismans when you're feeling lazy.

I think that water farm is better because if you are war farming you would need mets to level your gears and you need to fix your weapon profincy. So yeah I think waterfarm is better.

warrior farming gear is cheaper than water farming gear
warrior farming is harder work then water farming
if you get really good gears both methods can be done in about the same time
warrios farming gives the 20 exp balls to the mentor and water farming does not

think that should be enough info for you to make up your own mind, if u like to scatter then go for water farming, if u like melee leveling then warrior farming

Warrior farming > water farming if you have the same gear.
Extra exp balls are always nice to have.

Im gonna try to touch this.

I water farm. and by the term farming, I use my archer, and 4 waters following me. (i am not sure if you mean the same with warriors). I tried farming warriors when i needed to bless some gear but i found it very slow doing this way. Waters on the other hand get extra exp for thier lvl 40 promotion so they already have an advantage. and then i use dual soc rainies set, a single soc rainy set, another char, and a noob. for noob exp. Doing this it takes about 6hours to get a farm done, (about 3 waters to lvl 110). however if your going to lvl till 120 to bless gear, then its about 1hour each lvl with full dual soc, ect.

So from this past year of farming, its my experience to farm waters.

for water farm you need a strong archer and lots of rainbow gems - costly to start but you can make multiple chars at the same time
for warr farm you need a couple of dragons to 1-hit mobs with sm and mets to up your gear - cheaper to start, less boring but only 1 char at a time
