Loot and Alchemy Recipes Available from Vermillion! New Divine Glove!

December 8, 2011 1 comment

 

With the release of the Dragon Statue Gift CA  has released the new monster Vermilion,, the Tyrant. This monster battle is pretty tough due to Divine Armor, but it does include a new Divine Glove via Alchemy.

Here is the loot available for Vermilion, plus the new alchemy specific to this monster

Epic Chance Drops

Tyrant Scale Protector

Shield, 25/22, This is not a top 10 shield.

Redwyrm Greaves

Boot, 5/3, Technically this is the second best offensive and defensive boots. However since there are only 3 boots available at this time I’m not sure its a big achievement.

Bloodfelt Pendant

Amulet, 27/29, This is not a top 10 amulet.

Kingwyrm Blood

Alchemy, Ingredient to Vermilions Grasp, Dragonform Claw, and Vermilion the Tyrant. Don’t accidentally trade this to Kobo.

Rare Chance Drops

Tyrant Scale Armor

Armor, 15/15

Vermilion Helm

Helmet, 16/8

Bloodsteal Blade

Weapon, 20/14

Alchemy Recipe: Create Vermilions Grasp

This alchemy recipe takes 2 Tyrant Scale Protectors (Epic Drop), 2 Bloodfelt Pendants (Epic Drop), and 18 Kingwyrm Bloods (Epic Drop) to create Vermillions Grasp. You must be level 180 to perform this alchemy.

Vermilions Grasp

Type: Glove
Attack: 24
Defense: 20
Attack Power: 38
Defense Power: 36.8
Divine Power: 0

At the time of this post Vermilions Grasp is the 2nd best attack glove & 2nd best defensive glove. Vermilions Grasp also happens to be an ingredient for the number 1 glove: Dragonform Claw:

Alchemy Recipe: Create Dragonform Claw

 

 

This alchemy recipe takes 1 Vermillions Grasp (Alchemy item created from Epic drops), and 50 Kingwyrm Bloods (Epic Drop) to create Dragonform Claw. You must be level 180 to perform this alchemy.

Dragonform Claw

Type: Glove
Attack: 27
Defense: 24
Attack Power: 43.8
Defense Power: 42.9
Divine Power: 100

At the time of this post Vermilions Grasp is the 1st best attack glove & 1st best defensive glove. Plus it is the ONLY divine glove.  But don’t get too excited, it will take a lot of FP or time to get this item!!

Alchemy Recipe: Create Vermilion the Tyrant

 

This alchemy recipe takes 300 Kingwyrm Bloods (Epic Drop) to create Vermilion the Tyrant. You must be level 180 to perform this alchemy.

It is not yet known what this is. Like others I assume its a super-powerful unit. Personally I would rather it be a mega-epic gerneral, but don’t think that will be the case.

Conclusion

If you are a high enough level the gloves, boots, and other epic loot drops are definitely worth trying for. I wish the rare drops were a little more powerful, but they do give another source of boots. I may go after the alchemy here after farming Aurora.

Loot and Alchemy Recipes Available from Typhonus! New Best in Game Armor!

June 30, 2011 4 comments

 

With the release of the Mystery Beast Gift CA  has released the new monster Typhonus, the Chimera. This monster battle is pretty tough due to Divine Armor, but it does include a new Best in Game armor via Alchemy.

Here is the loot available for Typhonus, plus the new alchemy specific to this monster:

Epic Chance Drops

Bestial Plate

Armor, 28/25, At the time of this post Bestial Plate is the #5 best Attack Armor and #6 best Defense Armor in the game! One plate is also needed to create Trisoul Plate (info below) via alchemy. Trying to go after Trisoul it may be possible to get 3 plates for your War Council.

Blood Amulet of Typhonus

Amulet, 36/40, At the time of this post the Blood Amulet of Typhonus is the #4 best Attack and Defense amulet in the game! This is the most powerful amulet that can be farmed directly (no alchemy required).

Essence of the Snake

Alchemy, Ingredient to the Trisoul Plate. Don’t accidentally trade this to Kobo!

Essence of the Goat

Alchemy, Ingredient to the Trisoul Plate. Don’t accidentally trade this to Kobo!

Essence of the Lion

Alchemy, Ingredient to the Trisoul Plate. Don’t accidentally trade this to Kobo!

Rare Chance Drops

Helm of the Watch

Helmet, 20/26,

Chimeric Aegis

Shield, 20/22

Snakes Grasp

Glove, 11/10

Fangblade

Weapon, 28/26

Alchemy Recipe: Create Trisoul Plate

This alchemy recipe takes 7 Essenses of the Snake (Epic Drop), 7 Essenses of the Goat (Epic Drop), 7 Essenses of the Lion (Epic Drop), and 1 Bestial Plate (Epic Drop) to create the Trisoul Plate. You must be level 180 to perform this alchemy.

Trisoul Plate

Type: Armor
Attack: 40
Defense: 35
Attack Power: 64.5
Defense Power: 63
Divine Power: 160

At the time of this post the Trisoul Plate is the 1st best Attack helmet & 1st best Defense armor.  More important, this armor has a divine power rating of 160. That will help a lot fighting divine monsters.

If you are a high enough level the Trisoul Plate and other epic loot drops are definitely worth trying for. I wish the rare drops were a little more powerful, but they are definitely an increase over previous monsters rare drops.

Due to my lack of Divine Power items I won’t be farming these too much. I have one Typhons summoned now (part of an experiment I hope to post about later). But other than that I’ll focus on easier to get monsters and loot.

Here is the loot available for Ambrosia, plus the new alchemy specific to this monster:

Epic Chance Drops

Arcane Defender

Shield, 23/20

Hand of the Tempest

Glove, 11/9

Alchemy Recipe: Create Helm of Arcane Energies

This alchemy recipe takes 8 Arcane Energies (Epic Drop) and 10 Crystallized Arcane (Epic Drop) to create the Helm of Arcane Energies. You must be level 180 to perform this alchemy.

Helm of Arcane Energies

Type: Helmet
Attack: 48
Defense: 53
Attack Power: 85.1
Defense Power: 86.6
Divine Power: 120

At the time of this post the Helm of Arcane Energies is the 1st best Attack helmet & 1st best Defense helmet. The 2nd and 3rd best helmets are from Arena II and Arena III, so are no longer available. The number 4 helmet is the Crown of Flames (alchemy from Gehenna loot) is way behind this helm with an Attack Power of 55.4 and Defense Power of 55.1.

Now add the fact this helmet also has a Divine Power of 120 it is a must have for higher level players.

If you are a high enough level the Helm of Arcane Energies and other loot drops are definitely worth trying for. However due to my lack of Divine Power items I won’t be farming these too much. Instead I’ll focus on easier to get monsters and loot.

A look at the Ascension Chest Alchemy Recipes


A little over a week ago the CA Devs released a new chest: The Ascension Chest! The CA Forum has a thread discussing the new chest. The CA Wikia has a page started for this chest which is pretty darn complete.

I posted before on the generals in this chest. Now I will look at the alchemy recipes available in this Chest.

Honestly after looking closer at the alchemy available in this chest I will likely stay away. The alchemy generals aren’t that great, and the class abilities require too much from the Annihilator Chest to be useful for me. But, if you are big time into guild battles you may like the class abilities.

Create Bjorin

There are 3 components to this recipe, all of which come from the Ascension Chest. The components can also be equipped to Bjorn (the component are burned up to create Bjorin, you will need another one from the chest to equip him). Here are his 3 items:

Valdonian War Helm
Helmet,  30/20, +1 defense to Bjorin, Rare pull from the Ascension Chest

Valdonian War Armor
Armor,  19/16, +1 defense to Bjorin, Uncommon pull from the Ascension Chest

Skullseeker
Weapon,  25/20, +2 attack to Bjorin, Uncommon pull from the Ascension Chest

Here is the info on Bjorin:

Level 1: 24/22   +0.5 Attack per Valdonian Mystic Mage
Level 2: 25/23   +1.0 Attack per Valdonian Mystic Mage
Level 3: 26/24   +1.5 Attack per Valdonian Mystic Mage
Level 4: 27/25 +2.0 Attack per Valdonian Mystic Mage
Level 4 SET: 29/27  +2.0 Attack per Valdonian Mystic Mage

L4 ATT PWR: 44.5
L4 DEF PWR: 43.9
L4 SET ATT PWR: 47.9
L4 SET DEF PWR:  47.3

The Valdonian Mystic Mages used to increase his power are common soldier drops from the Ascension Chest. They are a pretty good soldiers with an attack of 45 and defense of 33. The max for this ability is 50 Attack.

Unless someone takes a LOT of draws from the Ascension Chest I don’t think this will help anyone out. Someone who has spent enough FP’s to get 25 Mages for the extra 50 attack probably has other better generals.

Create Zeventis

There are 3 components to this recipe, all of which come from the Ascension Chest. The components can also be equipped to Zeventis (the component are burned up to create Zeventis, you will need another one from the chest to equip him). Here are his 3 items:

Claymore of Zeventis
Weapon,  28/28, +2 Attack to Zeventis, Rare pull from the Ascension Chest

Helm of Zeventis
Helm,  18/23, +1 Defense to Zeventis, Uncommon pull from the Ascension Chest

Plate of Zeventis
Armor,  16/16, +1 Defense to Zeventis, Common pull from the Ascension Chest

Level 1: 22/24   +0.25 Attack per 10 Obsidian Swords
Level 2: 23/25  +0.5 Attack per 10 Obsidian Swords
Level 3: 24/26   +.75 Attack per 10 Obsidian Swords
Level 4: 25/27  +1 Attack per 10 Obsidian Swords
Level 4 SET: 27/29  +1 Attack per 10 Obsidian Swords

L4 ATT PWR: 43.9
L4 DEF PWR: 44.5
L4 SET ATT PWR: 47.3
L4 SET DEF PWR:  47.9

The Obsidian Swords can be bought from the Blacksmith. The max for this ability is 50 Defense.

I can’t see buying 500 Obsidian Swords to get the +50 bonus Attack.

Backstab IV 

Class: Rogue

Ability: +85 Damage to enemy in guild battle with Full Health

Components:

Paralyzing Poisons
Alchemy, 0/0, Rare drop from the Ascension Chest

1 Backstab III

Be careful trading with Kobo!!!

April 29, 2011 2 comments

This is an old post. Please go to this page for the current list!!!!

An army member of mine just made a mistake we all need to watch out for: he accidentally traded his Alpha Bahamut Artifact at Kobo’s Goblin Emporium. Ouch! I feel his pain, I traded a Volcanic Crystal once…

For anyone not sure what Kobo’s Goblin Emporium is about see the Wikia entry.

With the new Giants its even more important to watch out. Each of the giants drop an alchemy item that can be traded with Kobo, but you would NEVER want to do that!!!

Here is a list of some of the items I can think of that should never be traded with Kobo. They are all drops from monsters (not gifts) and are used to create good gear. Some of these might not show up in Kobo, but I’m including them because they meet the requirements for being allowed in the Emporium (no stats).

Volcanic Crystals
Dropped by some Next Gen Monsters.
Used to create the soldier Bahamut, the Volcanic Dragon.

Alpha Bahamut Artifact
Dropped by Alpha Mephi and Azriel.
Used to create the amulet. Transcendence.

Nether Soulstone
Dropped by WoRP.
Used to create the glove Soul Crusher.

Hellstone
Dropped by Alpha Mephi.
Used to create the weapon Soulforge.

Rune of Fire
Dropped by Gehenna.
Used to create the helmet Crown of Flames.

Rune of Flame
Dropped by Gehenna.
Used to create the helmet Crown of Flames.

Emblem of Keira
Dropped by Army of the Apocalypse
Used to create Signet of Keira

Emblem of Lotus
Droped by Army of the Apocalypse
Used to create the Signet of Lotus

Emblem of Sylvana
Dropped by Army of the APocalypse
Used to create the Signet of Sylvana

Emblem of Azriel
Dropped by Army of the Apocalypse
Used to create the Signet of Azriel

Valhalla Dust
Dropped by Valhalla
Used to create the Essence of Valhalla and Hand of Valhalla.

Essence of Valhalla
Dropped by Valhalla (or created via alchemy).
Used to create Stormbringer.

Life Force
Dropped by Jahanna
Used to create the Force of Nature.

Soul of Agamemnon
Dropped by Agamemnon (Summoner)
Used to create the Aegis of Kings

Rune of Agamemnon
Dropped by Agememnon
Used to create the Aegis of Kings

Rune of Life
Dropped by Aurora
Used to create Heart of the Woods

Storm Essence
Dropped by Kromash
Used to create Giant alchemy recipes.

Mountain Core
Dropped by Shardros
Used to create Giant alchemy recipes.

Heart of Ice
Dropped by Glacius
Used to create Giant alchemy recipes.

Lava Flask
Dropped by Magmos
Used to create Giant alchemy recipes.

Arcane Energy
Dropped by Ambrosia
Used to create the Helm of Arcane Energies.

Crystallized Arcane
Dropped by Ambrosia
Used to create the Helm of Arcane Energies.

The list above is as complete as I can figure out. Just remember, DON”T trade any of these items. They have value greater than most of the junk Kobo gives out!
