Ring Scrolling/Augmentation (Kanna Ring or whatever)

Leaving this here for my friends’ and I’s reference, least it gets lost in the chat.
This works for MA too, I guess.
Image result for Kanna Ring
Okay first things first you need tons of the following (quantities are how much I prepared for mine. Grossly overestimated, but I doubt this will be the last ring/item you scroll anyway):
-Chaos scrolls of Goodness 30% (x100)
-Innocent scrolls (x100)
-Clean Slate Scrolls (x100)
-Golden Hammer 50% (x100)
A LOT of spell trace (x2 stacks of 9000)
-Mesos for Starring (500mil. I was very unlucky, lol)

Kanna’s Treasure (Ring) only has one upgrade slot by default, therefore you have a potential of 3 slots to scroll.
x 1 Default slot
x 1 Golden Hammer slot
x 1 Cash Hammer Slot (Optional)

You want to get your first default slot to be your 5WA slot. The next slot should be hammered and scrolled for 30% WA/MA and main stat. The last hammer is the cash hammer, which is optional, depending on whether your ring explodes or not when trying for 18*. 

Referenced above, the aim of your first slot is to get +5WA (that’s the max), which comes from your chaos scrolls.

1. Scroll your ring with the Chaos scroll FIRST.
The following situations will occur.

IF CHAOS SCROLL PASSES ON FIRST SLOT, check stat for 5WA.
IF IT IS 5WA (cry tears of joy) , hammer for additional slot.
IF HAMMER FAILS, Clean Slate Scroll (DO NOT, BY THE LOVE OF GOD INNOCENT SCROLL ITto return failed hammer slot.
Hammer and Clean Slate Scroll till you get the hammer slot that passes.
Move on to Step 2.

IF IT FAILS, hammer to get another slot.
IF HAMMER FAILS (cry), innocent scroll immediately.

IF CHAOS SCROLL PASSES ON FIRST SLOT, check stat for 5WA.
IF IT IS NOT 5WA, Innocent scroll immediately.

IF FIRST SLOT FAILS, HAMMER PASSES AND CHAOS SCROLL FAILS AGAIN, innocent scroll immediately. Duh. 

IF FIRST SLOT FAILS, HAMMER PASSES AND CHAOS SCROLL PASSES, check stat for 5WA.
IF IT IS 5WA, Clean Slate Scroll to return the first slot that failed.
IF IT IS NOT 5WA (tilt), innocent scroll immediately.

Repeat above process till you get 5WA and your first slot back. (Or until you decide to give up on life)

If you get through this, the battle is pretty much half-won. I lost my ever-loving shit because I kept getting confused on what to do next.
Scroll with friends, it really helps. Trust me on this.

2. Once hammer passes, scroll your last slot with 30% scroll for WA.
You can do this via spell trace.

IF YOU FAIL, just Clean Slate Scroll (again, watch out for the innocent scrolls in your inventory) the slots back for you to scroll 30% again.
This is why you need a lot of spell trace.

Once you are done with everything above, you should have:
-No more slots to scroll (all slots available should have passed at this point, no wasted slots. It’s just two slots man, c’mon.)
-5WA on your ring
Basically a perfect traced ring.

Next, Star your ring till 17*. PLEASE BE CAREFUL NOT TO LET IT EXPLODE AFTER 15* as there will not be another kanna ring to transfer the potentials over. You only get one Kanna Ring per character.

I will not advise you to go 18* unless you have other rings and can replace this ring if it explodes.
I mean, I guess you could #yolo and purposely click for 18*. If you think about it, the destroy rate is 10-15%. By this time, you would have failed your 30% and 5% scrolls over a hundred times and you’ll know the odds. But seriously though, if you’re planning to go free to play, wait for a better ring to come by before going hamz on your Kanna ring.

Please note that this scrolling method only works for rings that alrdy have WA/MA on them. If you want to add WA/MA on rings without, you’ll need Premium WA scrolls that you have to buy with real money from other people. #pricey

Not that you haven’t spent money trying to get the scrolling items above already, but the point of this guide is to not spend as much.

You will however, have one more hammer that you can only buy with @cash. It’s like what, S$13? I would suggest only investing in this hammer IF you manage to 18* your kanna ring. No point spending $13 on something that you may cause explode, no point spending $13 on something that hasn’t reached end game potential.

If you go manage an 18*, I would go Premium WA scroll immediately for the sweet 4/5WA additional. Those are #pricey, but you’re trying to build something viable for your character, plus Kanna Rings can’t be traded.

Whatever’s left is your normal tier-ing of equipment from Epic to Legendary. If you go legendary, don’t settle for anything lesser than 21% main stat.

And… yah. I guess that’s how you do this scrolling thing.

[Honkai Impact 3rd] Power Levelling

POWER LEVELLING GUIDE
https://www.youtube.com/ryuumabrunestud (Gaming Channel) #붕괴3 #崩坏3 #崩壊3rd #CG China: http://www.bh3.com/ Japan: http://www.houkai3rd.com/ Taiwan: http://www.tw.bh3.com/
[Honkai Impact 3rd]

Levelling in Honkai Impact is actually very easy, level 1 to 30, anyway. You can do it in less than 7 days by repeating these three easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy steps, even while being lazy about it.

FOLLOW THESE STEPS IN THIS ORDER FOR BEST RESULTS

  1. Daily/Story Missions

1.1 Collect Coins at Your Base
While you’re at it, level something up in your base. I’m not very sure what it does for now, haven’t quite thought about it but I’m sure it’ll come in handy late-game.

1.2 Upgrade a Weapon x3 (Story Mission)
This can be done with one basic upgrade cube per enhancement if you’re super broke and can’t spare anything else.

1.3 Upgrade a Stigma x3 (Story Mission)
Similar to 1.2, this can be done with one upgrade cube per enhancement.

1.4 Level a Valkyrie x2
This counts as acts of levelling. Which means levelling a Valkyrie from level 1 to 4 (3 levels), is only counted as 1 act of levelling. So if you’re someone who immediately maxes out his Valkyries the moment he unlocks them, don’t.
Leave one for your daily levelling.

1.5 Use up all Recovered Skill Points
You should have skills to add points to since you levelled your Valkyrie in 1.4.

1.6 Supply Shop & Cash Shop Spending
Friendship supply counts as a supply, and it’s free. So you can save your gems on pulls and other things. [Do one Friendship pull a day at least. You can get fragments which I guess is kinda neat.]
Cash Shop spending wise, spend on the fragments you can buy with coins. If you’re really broke, buy the cheapest thing in there that’s in coins.

1.7 Armada Commissions
Enter your Armada and tap into the Workshop.
> Take on a commission and either complete the entire 8-cycles or just 2 client requests.
2 requests are the minimum to complete your daily mission, but I recommend going all the way to 8 because you are guaranteed a Himeiko fragment each time you finish everything. It also contributes more to Armada funds/fame so your leader won’t kick you out at the end of the week for having the least contribution. Lol.

1.8 EXP/Event Stages
For the sake completing your dailies, go through it.
EXP stages are good for Valkyries that are not at max level.
Drop stages are more important because their rewards count towards your weapon and stigma upgrading.

  1. Daily Fragment Hunt

2.1 [Kiana] White Comet Fragment Hunt
Easiest mode to obtain, 1-3 Hard (Attempt 3 times, each time is 12 Stamina, always bring a friend support, Bronya must be present)
Shortcut to mode:
Menu > Valkyrie > White Comet > Level and CP Tab > Fragment Obtain

2.2 [Bronya] Valkyrie Chariot Fragment Hunt
Easiest mode to obtain, 1-8 Hard (Attempt 3 times, each time is 12 Stamina, always bring a friend support, Bronya must be present)
Shortcut to mode:
Menu > Valkyrie > Valkyrie Chariot > Level and CP Tab > Fragment Obtain

2.3 [Mei] Crimson Impulse Fragment Hunt
Easiest mode to obtain, 1-6 Hard (Attempt 3 times, each time is 12 Stamina, always bring a friend support, Bronya must be present)
Shortcut to mode:
Menu > Valkyrie > Crimson Impulse > Level and CP Tab > Fragment Obtain

For the above, do not worry about the about of stamina you have. You will have enough, no worries.
After you’ve completed all steps till fragment hunting, go into your mission tab and claim all your rewards. Your EXP bar should fill up by at least half or more. You will also gain additional stamina from daily mission rewards, so if you do not have enough stamina for fragment hunting, go into your mission tab to claim your rewards first.

There are also daily missions that require you to spend gems to top up your stamina and coins but it’s safe to do so just once each day, since the rewards you get from story dailies will top it up anyway.

For additional gems, take part in Energy Leaks. You can earn 10 gems each time. I’m not sure if it’s redo-able but if it is, it’s a good way to farm gems. Also, I think majority of energy leaks occur on hard modes, so each try will cost you 12 Stamina.

  1. Crystal funded EXP Pushing

This step is optional for unfunded players.
Your dailies will require you to send and complete 2 adventure quests of any rank or nature. Under your base tab, open your adventures and scroll all the way to the bottom. This is basically where you exchange a huge chunk of your hopefully excess stamina and convert it to EXP over a 3 to 4 hour period.

The most EXP that I’ve seen awarded so far is 60EXP (with additional stuff coming from the adventure itself) and you spend roughly 60 Stamina to send your Valkyries for it.  The next option is 45EXP for 30+ Stamina.

For me, this is my go-to lazy way of levelling when I’m too lazy to actually play the game itself. It works very well while I’m working, just dropping in to send my Valkyries on adventures with the excess stamina I recover over the day.

  1. Miscellaneous Things You Can Do if You’re Bored (Listed in Order of Execution)

4.1 Timed ‘Meal Times with Mei’ Daily Missions
Apparently Mei will make meals for you every day (wow) at 12-2pm (lunch) and 6-8pm (dinner).
Completing them is as easy as logging in between these timing and claiming the reward under the mission tab. You will be rewarded with additional Stamina and daily mission points to unlock the daily mission boxes at the left-hand side of your screen.

4.2 Poke You’re Valkyrie at the Captain’s Bridge
Not only does poking her make her *cough* lewder towards you, poking her enough will enable random status effects (%HP increase, % P.DEF Increase, etc) that affects your entire team during storyline/event missions for a set amount of time.

4.3 Storyline Grinding
Going through the Storyline helps you complete your story missions that award you with EXP and coins.

4.4 Additional Fragment Farming
If you have gone far enough in your storyline or recklessly grinded your hard mode in an attempt to level up instead of curiosity, you would have unlocked additional hard mode maps in your Story 1 and 2 that allows you to attempt earning fragment drops for other Valkyries.

I guess if you’re up for that, you could do it. I normally do it at night when I have nothing else better to do.

I may have missed out a few missions, but this is the bulk of things.
Of course to speed things up abit, you  can send you Valkyries for their adventures before you sleep so that you have them back in the morning to complete quests.

Hope this helps!

Crafting Guld Milla

This is probably the achievement of the year for me.

As everyone knows, I’ve been MIA from real life for quite a while because I’ve been playing this game called ‘Phantasy Star Online 2‘. In a nutshell, I was supposed to be playing this game solely to get revenge on a certain couple but fate decided to chain me to the game by having an online friend talk me into starting a team.

So now I’m here, already hopelessly addicted to the game when I decide to take things a step further.

Since the time I got my Guld Millas, I’ve been obsessed with them, to a point that I decided to make them in real life.
image
How the Millas look like.

The feat had seemed easy enough, till I was met with time constraint due to the start of my current full time job but with the help of a cosplay buddy, I was able to get the job done within 3 weekends.

Here’s how I did it:

Before this step, I had already weighed and sprayed (that rhymed) my M-9s because I didn’t think of documenting everything at the earlier stages.
image
This is a little bit of homework my cosplay buddy, Dom had me do, mainly because I left my silver spray paint at home and had to spray the gun magazines silver.
image
I am aware that the actual magazine is blue as well but I thought the gun needed more colours other than black, blue and green.
image
For the wings, I cut them out of wood and sprayed them blue over an initial coat of dull black. Half way through, we ran out of dull black and decided to just wing it and sprayed everything royal blue. It turned out okay except for a few beams of uneven drying.

We also decided that we wouldn’t have enough blue paint to go around so we rushed down to Art Friend for more blue paint and came back. On the way back, it started raining and we were kind of worried about whether our stuff would get wet because we were leaving them out to dry.
image
Back at Dom’s house, we sprayed the guns blue and started painting on the details. It felt really awesome to finally hold a paintbrush again, you have no idea.
image
The sun set while we were still painting and we used the phone’s flashlight to see things clearly.
image
With everything finally done, we started gluing everything together.
image
We were super excited to have so much done, we almost forgot to glue the magazines on LOL.
image
image
And finally, how they turned out!

I have the greatest time crafting milla and probably wouldn’t have been able to do shit if it wasn’t for all his help. Super thankful for having him around.

What’s left is to get my miko together for AFA, though I don’t think I’ll be able to pull it through since the package may have been lost in the mail. I have, however, ordered a school uniform online and I really hope it’ll arrive on time together with my wig.

Pray that everything comes together well!

10383080_825717547460783_4923780402673695004_n (1)Wassap guys! It’s been a long while and I know that you’d be expecting me to return with stories of whether I’m graduating or not but you know what? TOO BAD. Because I’ve been on PSO2 so much, I’ve got too many screenies and it’s kind of pissing me off.

So… What have I been up to?

Basically, I got my very first AC outfit and it marked the start of my expenditure on PSO2. I also developed a certain love of taking screenshots and wrecking havoc in other player’s rooms. PSO2 also manage to have me stay up all night doing a crap load of stupid things such as:

I really liked this picture. As you can see, I changed my outfit again, courtesy of a generous online friend. Woooooooo~

Story time, Crazy antics and really bad luck:

#Story 1
There was this one time
I was happily running around Skyskape WHEN SUDDENLY,
pso20140824_142541_001
A wild Fhan Jee appears.
image
WHAT IS A FHAN JEE?
A Fhan Jee chases after you or a certain player in the map and kidnaps you to another side of the map. You will be confined in a dome and monsters will start spawning inside and around the dome trying to killing you. Naturally, your task is to not die before your friends run over to bust you out from the outside.
Basicall, if you’re a lowbie, it’ll feel like this:
image
But if you’re geared enough, you’d be like:

If you think about it, a Fhan Jee is PSO2’s version of monster rape. Just saying.

This isn’t really a bad thing for me because most of the time I don’t struggle in trying to stay alive in the dome. If anything, most people would be chasing after the Fhan Jee, begging it to take them but alas, the red swirling toilet bowl rape monster only had eyes(?) for me then.

I was already at the max level cap, so bring it on, right?

Not.

What happened next was truly terrifying in itself. I’m not sure if you can make out anything, but I’m gonna leave this picture here for abit.
pso20140830_153956_000
NOW.

When I say dome, it isn’t really big to start with. What happened was what once in the dome at the other side of where my party members were on the map, a Quartz Dragon crashes into my dome.

Till this day, I wish my reaction was:

‘Gahd, QD, gtfo of my dome.’

Instead I’m in RaidCall like:
image
And while I was frantically dodging and rolling around within the dome, fishes are biting my rather under-geared self and dealing 200damage  to my pathetic 700hp and I’m like:
image
THEN it start flippin’ storming and making me flinch in between my rolls and I’m like:

And there my party-mates were, laughing at me through Raidcall and taking screenies from the outside.
EVENTUALLY, they came to save me and we didn’t fail the code because a teammate was healing me from the outside (as he laughed, mind you).

#STORY 2
So we were in an Urgent Quest one day and we came across a Bayze.

pso20140831_011908_000
WHAT IS A BAYZE?
A Bayze is supposedly a ball of dark matter that forms randomly as an Emergency Code in a map. The longer you leave it, the bigger it grows and eventually, it explodes, covering the entire map in red rain that is poisonous and very damaging. While the Bayze grows, it can damage you. It also can damage you with it’s tentacles that come up from the ground.
I know what you’re thinking. A Bayze is a tentacle monster from Japanese Hentai.



It is.

ANYWAY, we like ‘growing’ the Bayze because if we manage to defeat it at it’s last stage of growth, there was a chance that a some sort of boss monster, Ragne or Gwanada, would spawn from within the Bayze.

pso20140831_014130_001
I’m nor sure if I regret taking this picture or not because a few seconds after, I got one-shotted by a random passing-by Dagan (mob).  But at least I can show you guys what Red Rain looks like.

I hit level 50 cap on both my main and sub class within the first two and a half weeks (because I have no life) and decided to start farming Xcubes for augmentation.

I saw the exp requirement for an xcube (1.1million Exp) and nearly died.
I give up
Unfortunately, I didn’t and now I’m forced by my perfectionist side to max everything out or make my equipment as imba (pro/high level/overpowered) as it can go.

How I trained from level 40 to 50:

Initially, I had stored over 50 quests from Franca(Mob drop Quest), Cressida(Loser/Pebble quests), Girad(Rare mob) and Emeline(Weather Quest) but it only brought me up 4 levels, which I thought wasn’t so bad until I realized that the EXP from Hard to Very Hard mode wasn’t exactly a ‘one step for me, a huge step for man kind’ kind of thing.

The only thing I can tell you is that you’ll only be motivated to grind from 40 to 45. After which, everything after is a huge grind fest. Most of the time, I was waiting around for Urgent Quests and helping out team mates.

Or maybe taking random photos like so:

Enter Rie and Zan.
Forever everywhere together, mainly because everyone has lives and we don’t.
He’s my lobby, study and grind buddy when it comes to PSO2. Like, totally my bestfriend right now.

pso20140910_164316_000 pso20140915_190641_010pso20140916_144337_003pso20140916_153814_009
I mean, tell me we aren’t the most photogenic characters in the whole of PSO2 right?

Meeting the ENDGAME:
When I talk about the ‘ENDGAME’ with my buddies in real life, it refers to a guy who’s actually going to succeed in tying me down (again and for good) but when I saw End Game here, I mean my End Game weapon. That’s right, I managed to get my

Guld Millas

That’s right, Milla, just me and you, forever and ever, babe.
It’s gonna be really hard to upgrade and augment but

Virtual love moment over, I managed to get Milla after quite a few runs with Falz Elder, a new Urgent Quest that doesn’t appear alot so Milla is really hard to come by.

To get to Elder, you need to finish one Falz Arms map.
Arms maps are rather tricky because it requires you to kill the exactly same mob when there are 4 identical ones running and flopping  the map. Occasionally, they merge together to form what looks like a train that rushes around the map. One blind spot is directly under where the Arms merged. It’s called the curling spot. I do run for the curling spot alot but get killed by lag or if I’m off the spot by even a step.

pso20140921_213125_000
When we finish Falz Elder, my team allows one person to break the gem, most of the time with either a Vraolet or Nyoibo due to their potentials. Guld Milla drops from this stage’s gem.
pso20140928_044302_029
After Milla, I discovered Darker’s Den from Time Attack (VH mode), where your gateship literally crashes into a nest or world of D-arkers (they’re the bad guys) and you get this really rad cutscene with you in it.

pso20140910_230512_001 pso20140919_231648_003
But seriously, the map itself was rather hard and confusing to do the first time round, especially when I was barely geared at that time. Gradually, I got better at it and could lead my team through but wow, farming for the map itself was tiring as fudge and I only attempted doing so on Fridays while I’m boosted with coffee.

I’m not even going to lie now, but most of my time spent on PSO2 now is spent slacking off or what we call ‘lobby points’. It doesn’t even make grammatical sense.

‘What are you doing now?’
‘Idk. Lobby points.’

The next few screenies are of really random things my team and I do and I will attempt to caption them all:

pso20140914_012649_000

Currently, we’re Ranked 4 in Ship 2! We’ve come a long way since Rank 16(?) at a strength of 82 of us!

I’m not really sure how we got here but we are and after so many months of gameplay, I’m so happy to have close online friends again :>

I love you guys~
