Recently came back to AO, need some advice!

Sep 27, 2011 9:17 am
played AO a long time back before Spartan came out but quit the game together with my friends. Recently decided to come back and some advice on what (new) Main to go and on PVP formations would be greatly appreciated!

My old main, UberSniper (I know, stupid name) was a lv81 GunM and i got him to Div9 but could never win against the lv90+ people with 'seth's will' builds.

Formation was:

Anyway, I've read around and now people mostly say that Bow/Staff/Cannon/Music/Saw mains are fairly popular now. So before i had my acc migrated from Ndoors I dabbled with a StaffM and got him to lv 28, was pretty fun.
Im 100% sure that I won't continue my old main as I am totally lost at what to do with him next. So what Mains are recommended for PVP nowadays? Or should I just stick to Guns?

if you're going to PvP, the best are

Staff (Auto Battle Free League only)

Swords will be the tanks, bows will be sniping, and cannon will primarily be stun. Guns are also decent stuns once you get Summon Machine as well.

if you do a Sword formation, i recommend you do something like this for PvP. your main should learn Shield Bash after the upgrade quest.
Odysseus-Sword Main-Guan Yu or Valkyrie or Druid

the ??? varies based on who you're fighting. if you're fighting a Bow main, you should avoid using a Cannoneer or Hwarang and use a Princess. if you're fighting a melee main, you should use an Elementalist.

Bow mains are snipers. they should learn Hwarang's Aura after the upgrade quest.
Odysseus-Druid-Guan Yu
Empress-Sheriff-Bow Main

Cannon mains primarily rely on stun and you should continue to do so
Odysseus-Druid-Guan Yu
Empress-Sheriff-Cannon Main

    I decided with a BowM in the end to see the difference between a stun formation and a snipe formation. But there are some things I'm quite confused about. Shouldn't I get Shaman instead of Oracle due to noble sacrifice? Also, what should the formation be like mid-game(when you finally achieve a full formation)?

    I was thinking:

    Arti-Gunner-Prophet(or just a Archer?)
    Shaman-Monk-Exo(Was thinking that the exo can do a switch when main gets to half-hp)

    Please correct me if I'm wrong!

    Noble Sacrifice is useless compared to the stronger healers. seth will is also a very good skill to have. in the long run, you DO NOT want to front line your main.

    this is how i recommend you do it. i believe you need to recruit Swordsman, Spearman, Archer in the beginning as part of the quest.

    so your beginner team will be something like this

    this is based on your existing formation
    then add Viking/Shaman at lvl 10
    then add Shaman/Viking (whichever you didn't add) at lvl 20
    then add Arti/Monk at lvl 30
    then add Monk/Arti (whichever you didn't add) at lvl 40
    then add Gunner at lvl 50

    at lvl 57, switch Sword for Exo. make sure to keep the your Exo with the best gear possible. he will need it to remain a good tank.
    at lvl 70, switch Archer for Prophet (it helps with tanking a lot)
    at lvl 76, switch Shaman for Oracle
    at lvl 87, switch Artillery for Cannon
    at lvl 96, switch Gunner for Jannisary (or Sheriff if you can afford her, Sheriff is better in the long run)

    Okay, I get your point now. Thanks!
    But shouldn't I switch Spearman for Exo instead?
    And whats the preference between Oracle and Princess?
    What about Inventor? Not worth the time?

    spearman is nice for PvP purposes and has better damage in PvE so i recommend you ditch Swordsman.

    Oracle has a stronger heal and Seth Will which is like a "berserker" status. Princess increases the defense and accuracy of all range mercs and provides them with HP regeneration. considering that most people use Guns or Cannons, the Vampire is more suited for healing since Dawn Harmony provides a high regeneration to an entire column. as a result, people ditch Oracle for Vampire and grab a Princess instead.

    Inventor is good for stun, but his overall damage is low. if you are running an all out stun build, then Inventor is good to have. his damage is pitiful compared to the Sheriff. most people who did use an Inventor probably just went Gun Main with Summon Machine instead. If you have a good gun, he is great for skirmish, but in PvP, he is usually an easy target.

      oh yeah one more thing. skirmish battles are quite different and a formation that is normally impractical under other circumstances becomes overwhelmingly more powerful in skirmish. just a heads up on that.

      Hmmm, from what level should i start doing skirmishes? Any idea on which skirmish is good?

      Oct 1, 2011 5:56 am
      for the most part, avoid the low level skirmish areas. you need to do the main quests. only go to the skirmish areas if you still need more exp to level up.

      do all the troy and 3k tbs missions that you can. they start at around level 50 i believe. use peer chat to find people to do it with. you'll make a lot of money and level up fast due to the victory bonuses. for the most part, do your best to avoid repeating missions in order to maximize your earnings.
