Ok so I've been away from iRO for a long, long time. Recently i've had the itch to start playing again and since my main has always been a priest (though almost entirely FS) I am looking at perhaps playing him again. Since no one i know still plays I am curious how accurate this guide is and how well it would perform as a solo build as I am going to be honest here and probably be solo'ing the VAST majority of my play time. ( I still have the free reset which i just used and haven't touched stats/skills yet as I am looking for an up to date build).

I have a good chunk of change to work with but with no further income in the forseeable future so I am looking for some help in getting some intermediate gear to start this up. FWIW I probably have no ME gear but my FS gear is relatively decent (nothing outstanding that i can think of however, just incase maybe theres some pieces i might be able to mix in).

My AB is currrently 104/13ish.

Is it worth the z investment to start this up? (given my life now would make me stay pretty casual at best) I am not really interested in PvP/ WoE so I would want a build/gear devoted entirely to PvM.

I guess I should mention that my brother MAY end up playing once in awhile and I would like to group with him (either warlock or maestro). From what i understand this spec seems to do relatively decent at supporting as well, but seems to have good solo'ing ability opposed to a FS build which is why I am mainly interested in doing ME over FS currently.

I am also curious how you guys deal with gemstones. How cost effective is it? Do you guys pick up everything to fund your gemstones? Do you park some kinda loot slave to take your stuff or do you wing back after ur  over 50%, w/e?

Also I currently have a single account so no like extra buff slaves, etc (if you even need one)

Sorry I am kinda all over the place with this post and thank you to any assistance in this endeavor.

Welcome Welcome Chuck my dear,

 

ME is a wonderful build to play around with, but there are some things you must know (Which answers most of your questions as I go):

 

As with any character, with any build, it is a very investment intense build, whether this is worth starting up is purely different from person to person, but a purely PvM built ME Bishop can very much share exactly the same gears as a Full Support and interchange when its permitted. Generally you will opt to have the Shrine Maiden Hat at +8 and upwards as ME damage is increased by even numbered upgrades, if you have checked the prices of Shrine Maiden Hats and feel this is perfectly within your price range, then by all means start ME'ing away! i will try to test out gears as updates keep coming so if there are more questions regarding gears let us all know, there are quite alot of ME Bishop enthusiasts. 

ME is not the most casual gameplay experience as much as any other character you wish to build, but even for people like me, at least spending 30 minutes (a full BMX3 time) to play is considered enough for leveling. There is no doubt that ME built Bishops have basically almost the same skillsets as their Full Support counterparts and there is no downfall for having gone the ME route so long as you ensure you have some FS gears made for pure FS supporting, but quite a few gears are interchangable between the two and therefore there isnt too much mass spending for both sides.

Most of us spend on gemstones, it can be very cost effective by the early to late lvl120's when each monster drop is worth at least 1 gemstone itself. Ways for funding varies, some sell the loot to get gemstones, some have the Mistress MVP card to negate the gemstone cost, the choice is up to you. I personally loot till the very maximum 90% overweight as I can afford to spend on SP regeneratives for leveling and such.

There is no need for extra buff slaves, considering the AB is the pinnacle of the buffers and healers circle, you have pretty much covered yourself. The only real buffs are reductions and damage increasing cards and gears for yourself that you will need to invest into hahaha.

thanks for your response

i have a question about level'ing and whereabouts i should be at my current level? given i've picked up most of the gear recommended in this thread

i've heard nameless island quite a few times but unsure if i should start out elsewhere b4 venturing there and is that the end of the road or is there somewhere else you can grow into?

there seems to be quests now which is new to me, are they worth doing at all or is str8 grinding still pretty much king? (assuming theres no quests to be had at current lvl'ing location and you'd have to go outta ur way to do them...)

theres something i'm reading about Eden groups? i assume i've been to the hub to get the free reset. do MEs have a place here at all given if i wanted to try and group once in a blue moon? would i be expected to support or is there any chance of doing dmg/supporting occasionally? geez the last group lvl'ing i did was turtle island way back when D:

given i dont have a KK card or the funds to grab one currently, should i leave the slot open on shrine maiden hat for now or socket it with liek isilla or the like?

also seems i have an AA card i wasn't aware i had, worth building upon or should i sell it and grab something else?

anyways thanks again :thx: , looking forward to finally playing again :rice:

For lvl 104 AB ME try niffleheim, ME slain everything there except bloody murderer

when you're 120-ish try nameless level 1 against ragged and slaughter zombies, then proceed to higher nameless floors to face necromancer when you're 130-ish

dont forget to gear yourself with lots of demon & undead protection, like Divine cross staff (basically shield with demon and undead reduction), holy robe with bathory/evil druid card, garment with neutral element reductions like raydric/DR, etc

Absolutely, you are getting the same support skills as per a normal FS bishop so its very possible to play as a party support.

Here is the deal fellow ME AB fans:

 

ON euRO we got the Morse cave instances recently, so i started doing it with a friend and a FS AB.

 

The problem:

The AB gets separated alone in the 3 rd room sometimes and we fail the instance.

 

Should i go Adoramus or ME - i guess ME will be a better choice since it is AOE.

 

Also why does nobody mention Judex ?

 

Monster are Neutral + Demon(i think) so ME should deal damage to them.

 

Also can i Use the Neo Punk + Big Ben combo (what weapon)? Will it be better than the Devine Cross Combo ?

 

If i go the ME way will i be able to solo the mobs in the 3 rd room.

 

Following this guide and what i read through the pages i will be using:

 

+8-9 Shrine Maiden Hat + AA card ?

Mid Headgear Black Devil mask[1] AA card 

+9 Devilling HBP - we dont have Enchantable faw on euRO

Divine cross combo with spell enchants or Neo Punk + Big Ben ?

Temp INT Spell5 /LD or Runaway/

Holy Robe[1] / is Hero Shawl an option herE? 

 

I guess this pretty much covers it.

 

Any thoughts ideas suggestions?

 

Regards

In terms of ME you cannot lose by sticking to the divine cross combo simply because of the reduction to demon and undead as well as the added 10%MATK bonus from spiritual ring + its relevant ME increasing combo of 30%.

 

Judex has not much mention simply because of its smaller AoE in comparison to ME, as well as the damage just not being there unless the target is weak to holy, coupled with the fact that the priest line of classes dont get much MATK increasing gears as is, as well as there being already a predefined role they must fulfill.

 

The Hero Judgement Shawl is not too bad if you are attempting to use it as an armor for magic smacking, considering the high chance to autocast Lex when using ME.

you'll get lv5 anyways as a pre req to Sacramentum. And that's all you should spend on it, the damage increase is too low to justify extra points there.

Okay so i'm definitely doing something wrong here.

 

I tried out the damage on Dark Priests and it is simply not there..

 

Lex + Orato lvl 5 + ME = 55k dmg compared to the 167 k on the previous page.

 

Stats & Gear:

STCdgvt.png

 

Cross is with Spell 3/3

 

Temp Boots are with Lucky day, i should work on getting Runaway magic instead - this should boost my dps a bit.

 

I`ll try to get Judgement Shawl with Agav Card

 

And KK card in the Shrine maiden Hat.

 

Aand a Magical Shadow Set.

 

Please help me boost my damage so i can do cool stuff :)

 

Regards

upgrade your weapon, that'll already help a lot. at least +9, +12 if possible

 

FYI oratio doesn't help much

I have not noticed lvl 10 oratio doing any increase at all to my ME, or Adoramus. I conclude Oratio only works with physical holy attacks.

Hello every one, Came back to the game a few weeks ago and was looking to update my ME gear. i just got a +7 Shrine maiden hat that ill upgrade to +9 eventually but im wondering what card i should get, atm KK card is out of my budget so im desiding bettwen isilla and weakened fenrir.

 

As for the armors i have a set of holy robes with situational cards and wondering if there is better armors atm and posible armor cards aside from the usual elemental/HP ones.

Can someone please post here an updated leveling spots for ME AB? A lot of threads here for leveling spots seems old now and I can't find an updated one.

Is Nifleheim still a viable leveling spot until 105? Or the Bangungot Hospital in Port Malaya is much better?

If someone can upate here the leveling areas until 175 that is much better. Thanks.

As a ME ab, ti is still my main way leveling:vI did go farming when ti was bad

Biggest problem for ME leveling is survivability. If you could survive...
Niff is good for 101~110 esp with spotlight
Port malaya hospital is good for 110~125(thinking that you are farming cards instead of leveling is my tip)
And Nameless for 110~140 (you are not leveling but farming expert ring and Orleans robe!)

well. . . I'm so lazy to do TI and trying to challenge myself to go solo level using that ME AB of mine. (LoL)

I'm currently at Niffleheim so far the exp is good and concurrently doing still the bounty board for Dark Priest. I have good equip with shrine maiden, holy stick + exorcism bible and the spritual ring + clip combo. So far I'm happy with the damage at 101 doing 20k and sometimes triggers 40k without Lex.

Will do the Port Malaya soon once I past 110 or something.

Anymore leveling tips past 140? thanks again for the reply. :)
