SE leveling guide

By Whydoiplay                      

SE leveling is basically killing SEs to level up. You need to use high level doubler and fight it solo without using a group.

             

Gear Strategy: This is not your normal hunt, you MUST max out your ATTACK stat, your second stat will be DEFENSE

    All gear must have attack!! You need this the most. the second highest stat on the gear should be defense.   In the case that you cannot find primary attack and secondary defense, you can opt for damage for secondary.          

Buff Strategy: After you find your att/def set, find the correct buffs. (THE HIGHER THE LEVEL, THE EASIER THE HUNT)
1) Basics: Distil 150, Brewing Master 200+, Doubler 1200+, Librarian 300+, Adapt Learner 300+, (Remove Conserve, this is important because Conserve Cancels Arterial Strike)

2) Auction house potions: Constitution 250 (25k gold), Force Shield 200 (100gold), Wither 350 (50kgold) (can sub for wither450)  

3) Flinch 400+, Dark Curse 225+, Coordinate attack 350, Coordinate defense 350, Shield wall 500, Keen Edge 400, Arterial Strike 300,   Sacrifice, Reckoning, Golden Shield, High Guard, Last Ditch, Shockwave, Stun, Super Elite Slayer, Shatter Armor, Spectral Knight   Unbreakable, Side Step, Defiant, Mesmerize, Demoralize, Stalker, Epic Forge, Epic Craft, Empower, Enchant Everything (optional)  

4) Bloodthirst, Poison, Ignite, Berserk, Smashing Hammer, Entrench, Barricade (You might want to remove or add these buffs if you kill too quickly or hard to kill)  

5) Summon Shield Imp (you might want to spam buy this buff because it can win a fight for you and save your exp)  

6) Nightmare Visage (25-175) Adjust accordingly to the SE's attack that you are fighting  

7) Recommended Epic potions are Easter Egg Bottle, Glass of Eggnog or Shimmering White Opal Potion for insane exp drops. (Remove Conserve)      

 

Where to find SEs? Use the Fallensword Offical Guide.

       

Which SEs to target? All and Any SE over level 2225.

       

Mourarchian (Super Elite)

  2225 Low HP, High attack, nmv175. Your damage >5k. One of the lowest HP SE, try to max barricade and remove berserker if you're ready. 

 

Emperor Sidd (Super Elite)

  2400 High Defense. No need for NMV. Just keep trying. Your damage >15k. Low attack but high defense means you will get a ton of combat unresolved. Wait for Mesmerize to kick in and you should be able to knock him off his feet.

 

Gunnolf the Corrupted (Super Elite)

  2575 Medium attack, NMV100. High armor, wait for spec knight or shatter armor to proc. Your dmg >20k. Well rounded guy, just smash him with all the buffs on.

 

Grooango the Trickster (Super Elite)

  2625 High Defense. No need for NMV. Just keep trying. Your damage >15k. This guy is very similiar to Sidd, you need to wait for mesmerize to kick in to drop that defense so you can slap him silly. 

 

Nahuatl the Gigantic (Super Elite)

  2650 Medium attack, NMV100. High armor, wait for spec knight or shatter armor to proc. Your dmg >20k. The only SE with a ridiculously high armor. Wait for the armor reduction procs.

   

The Soul Thief (Super Elite)

  2900 NMV175. Spam purchase SSI. Your dmg >5k. He has over 400k attack, he won't miss you even if you had wings. You're gonna die a lot here but if you can hit first and activate shockwave and your buffs kick in, luck is on your side. Remember to lower damage as he has one of the lowest HP pools.

 

Drogorath The Vicious (Super Elite)

  2925 NMV175. Spam purchase SSI. Your dmg >20k. You're in the big leagues now, the last few don't miss much but if you paid attention and have the proper buffs, you will only die a few times...

 

The Drunken Sleepwalker (Super Elite)

  3000 NMV175. Spam purchase SSI. Your dmg >20k. This guy is personally my hardest to kill. It says he's drunken but he's kinda like Jackie Chan drunken, he becomes stronger and you're gonna die a lot but if you read this far you got this.

 

The Boom Hawk (Super Elite)

  3275 NMV175. Spam purchase SSI. Your dmg >10k. One of the community favorites, lower HP pool, low defense, max your defenses with nightmare 192 if possible.

 

Empress Tinny (Super Elite)

  3400 NMV175. Spam Purchase SSI. Your dmg >20k. The all rounded MVP. Good luck           

 

      Final thoughts, remember to keep in mind that this is not your regular hunt. You need to get into 20 rounds of combat. Not kill the SE in the first round.   Artieral Strike boost the exp gain for every round of combat therefore the lower your dmg the better for most instance. Conserve cancels Arterial Strike.   Check the SE log and hunt when no one else has killed any high lvl SE for hours. (at least 12 hours for all to spawn) If you read this far, then message me in game "SE hunting is fun" and I will give you a gift. At first try or even your first twentieth try, you will die. You will keep dying but don't be discouraged because you're learning. Read the battle logs, why did you die? Did you not have enough damage to combat unresolved? Did you die because SE was able to hit you? Adjust yourself and once you get the hang, you will enjoy the sweet exp gains.

Below are two examples of "perfect" (maybe perfect  :P ) hits. Perfectly calculated 20 rounds of combat  with insanely expensive potions and composed brews and the results speak for itself.

And shame on those who deemed SE hunting real easy. It was fun, exciting and actually felt like a hunt in the true sense of a hunt, bit like titan scrambling

SE Leveling Upgrade and a little more complaining.
 
The original intent may not of been to level with Super Elites.  However, it was interesting and took time and effort to understand and plan. If done right it had the potential for great results and or loss.  Heck, SEs didn't even have a great respawn rate for the number of people trying to SE Hunt.   Now, I am not sure that there is anything as interesting in the game.   It has even changed the amount of gold, FSPs and items changing hands too.
 
Glad that I realized Stamina made the game work and did some Max Stam upgrades.  Now, I will probably just get rid of the excess gear, upgrade max stamina, wait for my stam to max and grind out the levels.  I wonder how long that will keep me interested? 
 
 Where is the hook for the new / lower level players?  Yes, thank you admin for making the game more boring for those newer to it.  It is almost like the powers that be have been playing for so long, they have forgotten the new players.  What is the saying, "Think outside the box".  At least there is no reason to spend so much cash on the game.  My wife will thank you, the admins, for that.
 
By the way, why not upgrade the game with some of the FS Helper add ons? Cause FS Helper has a lot of glitches.  If you thought of it for a little bit you probably could even make the game better then FS Helper even thinks it is. 
 
I'll stop with one last question.... Where is the strategy and planning that will keep those players like me around the game? Cause even though PvP is part of the game, it is not my cup of joe.
 
WTG FS Admins   ....   WTG!

If ya mean me there Penny, as the player with the highest number of SE kills ? - then tbh, I don't really care..

Is it an exploit to get big amounts of XP from a creature much higher level ? - sure, but to GET that XP, the player has to be able to solo the critter in the first place.

The whole state of the game (or lack, thereof) concerns me - a minor (IMO) tweak like this is inconsequential in the grand scheme of things.


Homer : Marge, don't discourage the boy. Weaseling out of things is important to learn. It's what separates us from the animals .. except the weasel.

 

Eddie Izzard : The National Rifle Association say that guns don't kill people, people do. But I think the gun helps, you know ? I think it helps. I think just standing there going "BANG" - that's not going to kill too many people, is it ?

 

I don't mean to sound pessimistic, but it seems that everything I eat lately turns to poo ...

Thanks for your input and your acknowledgement that the player has to actually solo the creature and it ain't easy LOL  :D  (even with tons of epic potions)

If you are using composed potions or something stronger, starting at around level 850, and while using proper gear, you don't really need blood thirst, wither, barricade or entrench. I prefer not using wither or blood thirst as they will make stat calculations unreliable. You also missed avert gaze which is really important because it can cause some loses/unresolved combats, apart from that I'd also add the Necrosis/Holy Flame combo which is easily accessible from Valaraths eggs, it is pretty handy at lower levels to help you attain the needed damage. And the last buff could be armored strike but it's % chance of activation is too low...
