I just got done polishing my Non-Leech guide. Now I have the guide with the places to level, and the other guide with the places to get equipment!
I'm just a fellow Mapler whose been around since early Sept of 2005. I know all about the hardships of pre Big Bang and how it beat you in to how the game works. I've played around with a lot of classes throughout the years, but I'd have to say my favourite class to play as is Hero of the Explorer Warrior tree.
Not too long ago, there was a situation when Mechanics had an ability to increase the movement speed of enemies on a map. It was a fun way to get enemies moving while also dropping their defenses. I can only surmise as to what the team was thinking when they brought out a new class that had the ability to increase the spawn rate without glitches (I’m looking at you, Wild Hunter). Now that Kanna have gotten something equally as game-breaking, it’s easy to see why there’d be so much backlash for something that – I’m sure had the best of intentions – turned into this sort of one-trick pony to out-do what Bishops were doing for many years before. There was such a large shift in priority mules that you were no longer seeing Bishop mules for their Holy Symbol (with Beast Tamers and Phantoms being in the same situation). I hate to say it, but maybe it wasn't the best call when they gave an ability to a class to increase the spawn rate. I think what should've happened was when Runes got implemented there was perhaps the incentive that you weren't only getting 2x EXP, but also a large burst in spawn rate increase when a rune was consumed. I'm not saying that it can't be resolved in the same fashion.
1. You can get potentials that add flat or % HP on your equips.
2. Use Flame items on your equips and hope you get more flat HP.
3. Do the entire Silent Crusade quest line (availale at level 90 in the quest light bulb to the left of your screen) to get a title that gives +3 All stats, +1 Attack, +1 Magic Attack, +400 HP, and +400 MP when equipped.
4. Do the entire Masteria Blockbuster (available at level 33 in the quest light bulb to the left of your screen) to get a medal that gives +15 All stats, +8 Attack, +8 Magic Attack, +500 HP, and +500 MP.
El Nath manually... So, It's basically getting closer. Because... going there by foot looks like suicide according to the map. I don't mind a butt whoopin once and a while, but slaughter house is another story.
Good news! You don't have to trek that far at all. Just step inside the 3rd job building for explorers and talk to the one that is for your class and they were send you do the Zakem area for free. When you reach the entrance for Zakum, talk to Adobis for free Eyes of Fire. Yes, FREE! No more running through the mines or having to do a jump quest! Cracked Eye of Fire is for Easy Zakum, and regular Eye of Fire is for Normal and Chaos. To get back to town, just talk to Adobis in the 4th option to go back to El Nath, never having stepped foot in the nasty star-forced areas to be roasted alive or body slammed to death.
