Hell Road

edited January 2015 in Marksman Discussion
I've read a lot about how Hell Road is for other classes, but I find that MM information is pretty sparse, so I'm asking you guys for information about your personal Hell Road experience. Another thing I'd like to know is if anyone has noticed any difference in the toughness of Hell Road since the content update (when they supposedly made it easier for everyone else).

For me, I'm currently struggling on the low 30s room. I go as Burst for Levels 1-29, then switch to soul for Levels 30-31, then switch back to burst for Levels 32-34, then back to soul for 35. I've never beaten 35, and I've only beaten 33 twice and 34 once.
I only use offensive pet buffs until room 25, where I start using defensive buffs (mainly deflection III). Still I usually rank 2nd-3rd on the Storm server, with less than 100 points below NorthernLights, who always ranks 1st.

Some information about me:

General: I'm an evasion built MM with dual masteries.

Burst: I have max runes for contact, motivate, speed of fire, swift penetration, and shrapnel, with dual masteries. I go Nyos for the extra crit chance from Magic fuel, of which I currently get 11.6%. I find my single target DPS as burst is roughly equal to my DPS as soul because of the additional crit chance, but I sacrifice 30 evasion when I switch to Nyos.

Soul: I have max runes for contact, soul discharge, and speed of fire. I have motivate at 3/3. Although I would have significantly higher DPS as Nyos (due to the magic fuel buff), I still go Dyos for the extra 30 evasion it gives, plus I have my soul runes in my dyos tree. The main reason I do this is because as soul it is much harder to activate magic fuel (I have it active about half the time if I actively spam penetrating shot and burning swirl). A side reason is that I've found with higher evasion, Ayshri isn't forced to heal me as much, giving her more time to attack, allowing me to kill faster.

Roses: For room 1-28, and 30-31 I place 51 roses in attack, and the rest (130-140 at the moment) in health. For room 28-29 I put 45 roses in attack and the rest in health.
I do sometimes have trouble holding agro until she starts healing herself, but after that I hold it steadily.

tl;dr:

I want to know how far you other MMs have gotten to in HR. Please respond with your personal room record, rank on your server, build, tree, and any strategies you think help.

    Heya Dragmosh,

    I'm from the same server BTW :D (storm)


    When HR first came out i had trouble killing boss 20, Now i can reach 28.

    I play: Burst/prec hybrid / DYOS tree / lvl 80 / rank avg 9

    Reasons: NPC got stronger (more helpfull) / increased my mastery by 30 lvls / increased basic attack by 1000

    I still do HR with zero 12/12 gear. 2 out of 8 = 10/12 rest is 9/12. But stil very doable to reach higher lvls.

    But lets also be fair. Our top 3 MM are not weak at all, but they still can't reach the avg limit of the other classes (40) . Kinda sad, but that's the distribution. we are the last kid that gets picked for a game of football :eek:

    screen of so丶影伤 (for the participant of FWIC you'll maybe remind him he was top 1 wealth rank and one of the CN server marksman ) on the boss 50 he got 100 fire earth masteries i dont have his recent stats i only got some old stat ( before nightfall patch ) and his weapon lol ^^

    http://images.event.wanmei.com/event/2012/03/weaponesshow/1331826134910543.jpg


    PS : you dont have really tips on rose distribution just get 460K rose points ! ;)

    you can adjust your rose every 2 or 1 room all rooms have a specific rose distribution

    just test it and investigate a little it takes me so much time to found the best distribution

    x0 x1 x5 got the same distribution ( boss room )
    x2 x3 x6 x8 x9 got the same ( AoE room )
    x4 x7 got the same ( they are stronger than aoe room monster )

    except for 49 and maybe 48 ?

    and for room 1 to 30 you can have the same distribution it doesnt really matter because it's too easy

    EDIT : i forgot to say we are from the same server me and toofastbb we got likely the same gear but we dont have the same masteries and gemstone so far i've down 46 stucked at 47

    what's ur total rose count :o

    I don't think so, I put the boss even lower, he's using burst spec as we can see on screenshot, that's maybe why he isn't able to clean the room.

    mini_70481220130512144628.png

    Maximum hell road points for 1 HR is actually around 5400 but I do less points at second HR because of rose's points farming.

    Hope I can clean it soon :(

    toofast could u tell ur stats? full buffed or not i dont really care, easier to compare this way
    personally i feel i lack defense to keep on right now, I still have like 50 saved roses and haven't placed much into atk yet so i get more roses each run, still have no idea if i can make high rooms or not.
    Crafting high level chest/waist atm so once i try i'll get all the way (waiting till i got maxed roses then i'll place them into atk)
