Rule 3: Respect the forum purpose and structure

- Do not post Facebook information about other forum users.

- Do not start a thread without actual purpose.
- Do not start a thread about a news story or article unless you make it clear what the story is about, and offer your own opinion to start a discussion.

- Do not share your account information with other individuals. You will be held responsible for any rules violations that occur under your account.
- Do not create new accounts or use other tricks to avoid suspensions or bans.
- Do not create ‘sock puppet’ accounts – multiple accounts created just so that you can agree with yourself and make it seem like your ideas have more support than they do.

- Moderators have no access to your game account. If you have an issue you must contact customer service.

Generally, BE NICE. There is nothing wrong with being nice to each other.

  • Sorkan vs Maalvus

    Does anyone know if it would be better to purchase Sorkan over Maalvus?

  • #2
    Depending on your attack, Sorkan could potentially out damage Maalvus. Maalvus would save you a bunch of energy on heals.

      Barbarus will do the same as Maalvus with only a slight reduction in chance for critical hits. Leveling Barbarus beyond 4 he begins providing bonus damage that can easily out perform Maalvus and his critical hit percentage. Barbarus is also listed in your Item Archives which means a plus to the player's attack just for owning him

        Neither. Get Dolomar and link him to others. Get the Hunter Path maxed and equip all the bonus gear to have ridiculous crit hit % rate.

          In old monsters, BIS equipment is used, so hunter path gear doesn't help. In class monsters you may lose too much damage due to low equipment stats for the hunter path items' +crit to cover, so again might not be worth it.

          Yes, high +crit might be fun. But not necessarily efficient

                  Actually, Maalvus versus Barbarus was calculated awhile ago and Maalvus over level 4 is superior to Barbarus, only very slightly and of course it's a little more luck reliant.

                      Exactly. If you're primary goal is to do as much damage as possible, Sorkan is going to be better until you have a few hundred attack (300-500) over the monster break points.

                      If you are trying to keep your attack stat low, you will probably want BOTH in the long run. For example, I have 514 attack with 161 IA/Rune boost. For fighting the early divine monsters (through Azeron, approximately), Maalvus is clearly a better choice for me because Sorkan's boost isn't enough to make a huge difference, and I am saving a LOT of energy healing on Magmos and Malekus. But with Sorkan, I could potentially attack Svorag. With the recent add of more piercing things, I would choose Sorkan and two conqueror-path items for fighting the likes of Kessaran and above if damage was the biggest concern.

                      However, for me I'm still trying to focus on putting as much energy into getting questing skill points as possible. And with that attitude, as along as Maalvus is 100-200 attack above the thresholds, I will be using Maalvus, and won't buy Sorkan until I need his attack to boost me over the thresholds for Svorag and above.

                        As long as nobody is shooting guns or no bombs explode i seem to feel quite well upon laying there staring at the lights for around 3-8 hours....

                          Sorkan is for Farming Monster a very wise Choice,
                          while Maalvus uses 3x Stamina, and no Special Ability of increasing Monster damage,
                          a very useful general in Leveling if you have plenty of Stamina not yet used

                              They do have benefits:

                              One: using Barbarus or Maalvus will use 3 times the stamina to do three times the stamina, but only ding the green party health (or the blue dispel bar) for one time. Doing less damage to the green/blue bar means less energy needs to be used in the fight.

                              Two: If you've left your stamina/energy fill up too much close to level, being able to use Barbarus/Maalvus for a larger expenditure of stamina/energy can reduce loss.
