I decided to come back to the game after taking a break. Spent come $$$ to give my character some new costumes. Currently at level 75 and feel like I am stuck.
I am at the Boreas Tower quest.
Lv73. Tower Protector – Defeat the Ancient Idol Hertha Cage guarding the Boreas Tower. Defeat Hertha Cage 0/1.
According to the game there is a upper limit to the reduction on defense. I think I reached it. I could be wrong. It seems capped out on me no matter how much more def I add to my character through Starstones or other means.
I even have trouble doing La Catedral Infernal Metarealm solo. Just die to bosses in that dungeon. I wanted to farm for some Level 70 recipes/mats.
My main question here is what am I missing for character stats or what am I missing in general that is preventing me from progressing in this mmorpg. Hertha Cage seems to two/three shot me quickly. I even tried running around avoiding the attacks. Still die rather quickly.
I spent some time reviewing my stats trying different Starstones and Armor/Weapons. Still at a lost of what to do.
I get the feeling my stats are not enough or something.
Here is my current character stats:
Class Cleric: 68
Deals around 32787 damage to Lv73 enemies.
Deals around 32154 damage to Lv77 enemies.
Receives around 846 damage from Lv73 Enemies.
Receives around 959 damage from Lv77 Enemies.
Evasion: 1180 – 11.8%
Haste: 1694 – 36.0%
CRIT: 7027 0 61.3%
CRIT DMG: 153.0%
Move SPD: 112.0%
+20 Decisive Astral Force
+20 Ardent Newborn’s Cloak
+10 Ardent Newborn’s Ring
Hertha Gage’s Steel Core
Dark Dragon Claws
Mostly Attack and HP.
Upgraded to at least 2 stars max fusion boost.
I choose the Ascetic path for Specializations which is Atk/Haste.
I even tried the Spirit armor/weapon from the Boreas Tower. +20ed all of that which felt like a waste. Still kept the +20 armor and weapon in case it turns out to be needed. Still die rather quickly.
Any advice on how to progress would be great. Thanks.
