Alternate TBS Guides


19 thoughts

  1. What does the rating on the TBS section? I’m looking for TBS that is worth it to run at my level. I’m level 150 with weak equips.

    1. SpearMain is very useful in raids, as well as the CannonMain.
      Sword might be useful as they can stun some mobs.
      Saw is useful to awaken (Sacrificial Awakening).
      InstrumentMain for draining enemy bosses’ / mobs’ MP.
      Lastly, BowMain is useful (with Empress’ Blessing) to reduce the likely-hood of being sealed, silenced, or frozen.

        1. There is no “best” – just have certain qualities in the raids, many that are situational.
          Spearmain can move twice in one turn (Vessel of Wrath), can use cross-based magic (War Cry) and can do decent damage vs bosses. SawMain can awaken himself + allies. BowMain has Empress’ Blessing and obviously hits hard. Blademaster (Lv 170) can avoid combo-count / stun and has a heavy AoE (Waltz). StaffMain, maybe their Blazing Earth is useful there. Cannon can hit 5 mobs in a cross with defense ignore if they have a Jupiter Cannon and has a few AoEs to pick from. Also, Instruments are very useful for their mana drain capability.

          1. so what main cheap for tbs/raid? i mean most picked for tbs and raid. i want saw main but need lv 100 to get it. and what server has less inflation?
            im looking for server with less indo players, is there any? thx

            1. Any range main’s gear is going to be generally more expensive, as they’re highly used.

              1. Cheaper: Battlemage (decent magic/proc damage), Spear (decent damage + DoT),
                Staff (decent magic/proc damage)
              2. Expensive: Blademaster (AoE), Bow (high damage), Cannon (high damage + AoE),
                Rifle (decent damage)
              3. Situational: Instrument (mana drain), Saw (awakening)
              4. Nearly useless: Axe

              Macedon and Thebes have less Indos, but still many are in all servers, as they make up half of the active player-base.

              1. i was using staff main for tbs since staff very effective for tbs but idk about now. why bow and cannon expensive and spear cheaper? have you tried europe server?

                1. Build for a Blademaster is expensive and swords are used often; spear is a bit cheaper as far as skills and spears.
                  I explained why range mains are generally more expensive; it’s because of their gear prices.
                  Staff is pretty effective in just about anything; probably not the best at it all, but decent.
                  Never played in EU.

  2. Hi… ^_^
    would you share any information about new ind, dragon lair?
    is it easy? and what is the reward?

  3. hey arcanic, thanks for the effort.. i have a question, altho i have stopped playing this game, there is still one thing i don’t get about avalon ND and it’s bothering me, why do high level players forbid anyone that “don’t understand” how to do the 2nd floor from entering it? what is there to “understand”? thanks in advance

    1. 2nd floor: because if too many players that don’t know what they’re doing remain in there, they will cause problems as far as spawning too many Puppeteers. This creates chaos in that floor and if left unchecked for too long, that Nation will fail the dungeon. Puppeteers are boss-type enemies that appear for every certain amount of (good) fairies/knights killed inside that floor. Agents are the weaker bosses that spawn from the enemy Gates. Players that aren’t well-geared are practically useless in that floor because they can’t kill the Agents/Puppeteers without harming the “innocent” mobs in those formations.

  4. Hey Arcanic, I just recently came back to AO. Back then TBS was a good way to make money.
    But I think it’s changed? You have to do diary stuff to get dungeon points now right? Is it worth doing now?

    1. TBS is a fairly mediocre method for income, but not quite pointless.
      Yes you have to accomplish diary stuff such as daily PvP and an Indi + 3 quests.

      Income (difficulty & profit varies):
      – Indis such as Grimm / PMCC / Tomb.
      – Particular Indis related to Star Stones.
      – Specific Raids – if you can handle them.
      – Titan: Kronos/Spelltower when available.
      – All Nation Dungeons are fairly profitable.
      – Newer grinding areas – Lv 160 / 170 only.
      – Areas that Jackpot Divine/Phoenix Boxes.
      – Some Raids have a decent profit outcome.
      – Olympus Tower – particularly from 5 to 15.

  5. hi arcanic, im lv 140 can you recommend me a place with weak mobs for jackpot? i have a decent guan yu but i have no idea which mobs have weaker mdef, thanks!

    1. No idea, not been around that level for a long time; my advice is to get to 152~160.

      Otherwise, you can try the Squad Dungeons for the rare books there.
