Well, when you're 110+, many monsters on the main map become very weak in comparison as most are below level 100. To players, they can be killed in one hit and barely any damage is dealt from them.As you lvl up, you can make new gears. 120, 130, 140, 145, and 150 lvl gear. These will be a lot stronger than your 110 stuff. If you go to the west part of archosaur, you'll find forges in the north area of it (opposite the teleport point) that allow you to make said gear, and if you inspect it you can see whats needed to make them. Personally I would skip 120, but 130 might help you in farming primal 140 gear, and from there farm ec and vote so you can get demonic (stronger 140 gear). Then, with that you can make dragon (you need other stuff too but demonic is required) and you have 150 gear to use until you get r8 :3 AOE skills, like some of your lightning (metal-type) ones. For singular stuff usually I see clerics just use plume shot and cyclone. Lvl all your skills to 10. Make sure to buff yourself and have your armor/weapon up to date with your lvl. Use -chanelling stone in your weapon, so you can attack/heal faster. Some clerics use heavy armor, because it provides more physical defense which is something arcane classes lack sometimes - then, they can be a better support to a squad because less likely to die from physical dmg.If you want to lvl, go to phoenix valley (through khoan the survivor npc) and kill stuff there. You can get to 140 really fast that way. And... Remember to pick epic coins from the boss, and normal coins, so you can max out your skills/buy things later on with ec. You may want to buy the super inventory/safe stones from the gods giving npc if you haven't already. I suppose that's all I think. You can pm me if you have more questions (my in game name = kokochan) C:
1. being able to kill masses of monsters with only a few skills and being able to take a lot of damage without problems. 2. should I be using different gear than the 110 gear provided? 3. Are there any specific skills that do better than others in mob grinding situations than others? 4. What are some general things that I can do to improve my clerics killing/tanking ability?5. Are there any other tips in general that I should know?Sorry if this topic was in the wrong section, I didn't know where else to put it exactly, so if there's a place for stuff like this feel free to redirect me.Thanks for reading and I do appreciate any replies or other general tips on anything really.
to PRO players who giving advices: I could write small novel about your advices, but then everyone would call me rude person, so I just will ask everyone who suggested HA cleric at lvl110 go and make one and try lvl it to 150. Seriously, if you know how to play AA cleric can level him self to 150 without any problem just in PV. But even if I play this game for years I never start new server from cleric. Never ever.
Thanks for all of these replies everyone, I appreciate all of this feedback. I'll definitely try a lot if not all of your suggestions for my cleric and see what works best for me :smiley:. Since the time that I posted this I've managed to get to level 125 through PV, and I'm starting to farm some 130 gear which is going decently. I know that I probably shouldn't have started with a private server but I might as well start somewhere with a community that's friendly. I've learned more from these replies than the guides for PW.
