Rule 3: Respect the forum purpose and structure

- 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.

  • The Demon Chimera is back! - Event #2 (May 2020)

    limited_time_monster_web_2.png

    The limited time monster is back!

    We didn't have to wait much (1 month), and it's great to see it's here only 3 days after Meteorite; It may mean it won't interfere much with other events appearances.

    You can check the wiki for more info on the event and monsters: Demon Chimera

    First monster this time is the Demon Chimera of Lightning (last time it was Earth, Fire, Lightning).




    Demon Chimera's Health:

    I asked Retribution and BadPuppehs to help me out with the data we gathered here last event: Demon Chimera's HP - data gathering

    They found the monster's HP is directly related to player level + (1.75 to 2)*max stamina.

    Player level and stamina are probably the only 2 factors taken into account, and stamina counts roughly twice as much as level towards the increase in the monster's HP. Basically, the higher level you are and the more stamina you have, the more HP the Chimera will have.



    Let's gather some more data and see if we can determine a more precise formula!

    If you wish to help, simply fill this Google Form:

    -- Demon Chimera HP - Castle Age --

    The percentage of the Chimera's HP left is always indicated. So you can simply hit the Chimera once, look how much dmg you dealt and how much HP is left in percentage and fill the form.


    In order to get more precise results though, we need to use the "inspect element" method:

    After hitting the Chimera, right click on the HP bar and choose "Inspect element". You should find a line with something like "width:94.811335807775" somewhere and that's the exact percentage of HP left. You can simply copy-paste the number in the form

      Please use the Google Form to share your data on your monster's HP

      -- Demon Chimera HP - Castle Age --

      If you've already killed your Chimera today you can still share your data tomorrow or later!

      Thanks for helping

      After you've hit the Chimera once and checked the damage you've dealt, right click on the HP bar and choose "Inspect element".

            Hello!
            We also need to know the damage you dealt and how much HP is remaining in percentage

            For instance:
            Lvl 1498
            Stamina 1449
            Dmg dealt 5980456
            Health remaining 94.36% (or 94.361335807775% for instance if you used the inspect element method for better results)

            Simply fill this form to help us with your data: -- Demon Chimera HP - Castle Age --

            Thanks!

                I would go with whatever provides the biggest boost for your avatar.

                    Keen to gather opinions on going for the tier 2 items. Tier 3 is totally out of reach for me, I'd have to play for another decade, by which time the game is dead (most likely) or will have easy to get items that are as good as the current top tier anyway.

                    Tier 2, however, would be very much in reach, particularly seeing how quickly the Chimera comes around so far.

                    The stat difference between the 1st and 2nd tier items is small though, and 2nd tier is not a legendary so the slot possibilities are the same. For me (and probably most), the other Chimera rewards are already insignificant, given that it now takes a huge amount of ores to upgrade my furnace further.

                    Hitting the Chimera takes a lot of stamina, does not drop essences, no hunter points, no FP drop potential. It doesn't make sense for me to continue to target the Chimera after I have the first boots and off-hand, and I already have the deathgauntlet so the gloves are no good.

                    What are other people planning to do?

                      Like you say, lvl 3 gear is out of reach for me as well.
                      I have death gauntlet and flamebound destroyer so I think the only gear that would be a marked improvement would be swapping my elandel greaves for the new boots in my defensive loadout.

                        It depends on your current equipment as Ray-Ray said, but overall the Specter Greaves are the best defensive boots in the game from far (except for the higher tier Chimera boots) and you should definitely get them at some point; while the Specter Gauntlet are not bad at all but you can also easily get other gauntlets which are relatively close in strength, such as the Ouroboros gauntlets (or much better gauntlets such as Deathgauntlet).

                        Personally I'll 100% get the boots first, then the off-hand, and I don't think I'll ever get the gauntlet.
                        But it all depends on your current equipment, your gems maybe, whether you prefer attack or def...

                          Pretty much same for me. I find it very scummy that MK doesn't work on Chimera, and I hate that it doesn't drop any essence/crystals/etc. I find it unfair also, since the HP changes depending on the player.

                          So once I get the tier 1 boots and off-hand, the Chimera doesn't look so great to me. But eventually I believe I may reach a point where I'll have the Phantoms Legendary, and if that happens I'll probably regret not hitting the Chimera... That's the issue with a limited time monster. It's really annoying - slows your other hunting activities down quite a lot (if it's 1 week per month), and doesn't bring you much for a very long time.

                          As for tier 2 items: the boots are not a big improvement (+20 Elemental Resist over tier 1), but the off-hand is quite nice (+40 ER over Flamebound Destroyer), BUT only if you don't have a Legendary Gem to put in your Flamebound Destroyer, otherwise FD is still better, and in that case the tier 2 off-hand is basically useless. The gloves... Well, the gloves (tier 1 and 2) are useless to begin with if you have Deathgauntlet.

                            I tried figuring out on average, how much stamina I needed to spend to cut down 1%...turns out for me it's about 45 stam to go down 1% using Maalvus and 1pt stam (x3) clicked 14-15 times.

                            I have three characters, started at different years, and they all seem to run about the same regardless of level. Seemed like I was using 4500 stam per monster whether I did 1(3) clicks or 50(150) clicks, or 100 using a non Maalvus general alliance

                            I am just not hitting on a good General Alliance to get better than Maalvus/my highest other general/Sahar as a combo.

                            What am I missing? Is there a better combo/point hit choice?
