View Full Version : Question about Tiers

05-21-2010, 03:58 PM
This has been bugging me for a bit. The word "Tier" gets thrown around a lot when discussing Monster Damage. I know the first tier is around 200 Attack/Defense, but I've only heard speculation after that. I've heard it's around every 200 points, but I recently hit and passed 400 attack and saw no significant rise in my damage.

My question is twofold. First, is the tier system actually based on every 200 points? And if so, does both attack AND defense have to reach that plateau in order to see a proper rise?

The "tier" is just for 200 Defense (regular monsters) 400 Defense (Alpha Bahamut) for fortifying

There's no "tier" in attack

Actually there are tiers for damage, albeit not necessarily as eye-catching as defense.
One exists at 800 and then another at 1600.
