  • This build is one of my classics. It has been awhile since I've logged on. I'm still waiting for a Celestial revamp.
  • Though most folks know my other characters (Dream Star, Light Star, Gem Star, Galaxi, etc) my main toon is Light. I will resume writing detailed guides with videos when either Celestial [finally] gets it's over due review OR we get some "Light" themed Auras and such...
  • Congratulations, You are: Light You are like radiant light, enlightened and illuminated, a being of wisdom. You are very resourceful in the knowledge that you provide to others. Like the brilliance of light, you are always positive, which allows you to get along with anyone and everyone. You are diplomatic, always making…
  • wow. Just for the record, I'm taking an extended break for a sum of reasons. MAIN reason is that there are no Celestial changes. Friends have all gone. I understand that the pts changes are just proposed, however, the mere fact they're even thinking it just leave a bad aftertaste. Gradii and others, I ask if you please…
  • I've read up to a certain page, and got a bit tired of a specific person saying the same thing, no offense. I rather post my critical opinion, rather than to just whine... I kinda of agree that Dodge/Avoidance needed to get nerfed to previous levels for some of the reasons many have mentioned. I do support the nerf TO A…
  • If you're getting 18k Crit in the open world, then i'd say you're fine. Your stats are spread out some, but that's ok, since Quarry will boost both your Int and Ego. Have you tried DEX/Int/rec plus a bit of end? I'm currently using that combo and's it's working great, more spam of FC. Maybe I do need to update this…
  • Hi, Currently, from looking at your stats, you might opt for some Rec/End to make FC more spammable. It'd be easier if you can link a screenshot of your stats, or post your overall stats... Btw, Imbue, imo, is better than Ego Surge when no Constitution is present. Plus Imbue doesn't get eaten up by FC. Hope that helps.
  • This is the tricky part, and I may have to refine my statement a little more for clarification. Specifically speaking about a Galaxi build. Though it is true that the build might be energy hungry due to the stats picked, my exp is that the only time you'll "stall" (for lack of a better word), is when you are in a prolonged…
  • Phew, I got a lot to reply to. I'll end most of what I'm getting across tonight. Ok, first. I would like to flesh out a little more on my incomplete post from last night. Kiga is a good measurement for a well balanced build, however, he's not the perfect or most ideal. The reason being is because I can pop a Stormbringer…
  • Finally got you in-game. To late to post all feedback from what I have, but my predictions are correct. I performed a lot more than you stated earlier.... Half asleep. will edit this tomorrow night.
  • This has been going on for several nights now. I have been waiting and waiting for you to meet in-game. Subjective? I doubt it. I am NEVER the subjective type. I base all my builds (and data) on testing. In fact, I tend to be a number cruncher and am very methodical, computer like. What does tanking vs solo'n have to do…
  • Dude, when are you going to log on? I'm currently in-game. is this going to happen or not?
  • Ok. so. I hope you follow me along. The best and most highly successful build in FF are those that have achieved an Equilibrium between Survivability, Dmg output, and Efficiency. Let me flesh this out some more. All these three factors are factored in to produce the level of quality your (the builder in general) can…
  • Hi, I certainly do appreciate your support, however, I would have to agree with Monsterdaddy in showing a little respect. I certainly do not want to pull this discussion into something else.
  • congrats! Yup, like mentioned previously, EBW w Siphonig Strikes is much different at 40. Remember, it does NOT scale on healing bonuses, which include presence, so unless you're supportig a team, I'd take off all pre in favor of CON for example. Also what's your primary super stat, and most importantly what's your gear?
  • I was hoping to catch you in-game. Was on for an hour so... At any rate... I agree with you to a certain extent. Kiga's a good punching bag, but there's some factors that you have to also consider. In most of what you do in PvE is not the same as Kiga fighting. I'm going to assume that alerts is probably the most common…
  • good morning! Wow. 2.7k huh? Well, there's several things going on. 1. I'd like to get parsed 2. As previously mentioned, I'm also using EBA now, and also Force Sheathe. 3. Your efforts to try and test my build are appreciated, however, its just not the same. One thing that I noticed you're doing in your style of building…
  • EBB taps are 25.... All I can say is that the build is there, the stats are posted, and the videos...don't lie =D BTW, I took off Conviction and added EBA since EBW w/ SS is all you need as a heal
  • Sorry for the late reply. Been away from the forums. I didn't specify my reasoning, but I put that because some folks want more severty than crit chance, and I dislike going into that debate. I personally prefer more crit chance. Either way, I'm currently testing on the PTS on a new stats and specs for this toon. Seems to…
  • Hopefully you may pull up the videos on a different comp? Even in those, I'm spamming them like crazy.
  • 21 Energy per tick, that's with 197 Rec.
  • HA!! I too was messing around with Rec Primary and Compassion! Though I'm using it on Light Star, so that's a bit different than your case. or actually it may not be. I'm using Arcane Circel to keep my energy at above 90% with 400ish Rec. At rank 1 Arcane Circle , spamming Celestial Conduit (which is an expensive power to…
  • I'd like to be parsed =p Hit me up in-game. I hardly ever, ever hit my energy builder. perhaps due to the way I have Galaxi set up.
  • The thing with Hex of Suffering is that it got "promoted by default" into being good. Let me explain. Ego Sprites lasts longer and can be applied twice. It used to be capable of crit, and could cause more damage than Hex of Suffering. But then it got nerfed to be incapable of crit, leaving Hex of Suffering one of the…
  • Actually, here's my build(<--click). I deem it one of my finest, due to the amount of feedback I've received in regards to it. There's videos on there, if you don't take my word for it =p
  • Ego Weaponry is not picked up so that you may use it as a damage ability. It's taken as a HEAL. What's so amazing about Siphoning stirkes is that it doesn't scale with your Pre or Healing bonus, but rather your dmg output. At lvl 36, things are quite different than when at 40. I noticed you mentioned you're about to hit…
  • lol, calm down buddy, we actually SUPPORT it!
  • As mentioned in-game, I highly doubt that the game will lose folks over this MUCH EXPECTED nerf. I am one of the folks who is gravely impacted by this patch, as I have multiple devices on multiple toons, like x5 pheromones, x5 Euption, x2 elixirs, etc. I've sent more than $500 over the summer on this game, and have wasted…
  • hi! The cool thing about siphoning strikes is that it doesn't scale with pre, but rather your damage output. The higher your dmg, the better the heal!
  • um, may I point out the section entitled "combat & powers"? I know quite a few builds, including some in a few guides ...
  • Arcane Sigils are awesome. Especially since mobs just LOVE to come at you =p
  • Thanks to everyone who participated! Your input is much appreciated. Though it wasn't mentioned directly, and no one else mentioned it, you did make think "Bold", which fits well with the appearance and the planned bio I Have for this guy. I'll catch you in-game for the prize!! Thanks all!!
  • it happened to me, I took such steps, and resolved, for future reference to other folks.
  • hi, hopefully you resolved it this by now, but if not, yes this is a big bug. You cannot, enter an alert ounce you pick up this mission. To resolve, drop the mission, then pick it back up, then complete without going into an alert. There's a few other missions like this, just don't recall which other ones. When I first…
  • Hmm. You got me thinking 'Bold Star'. You had me cracking up! But Stone is good. Good ones too! Edit: decided end the contest on Tuesday....
  • Most my builds only use 2 attacks as well, an AoE and Single target. In Galaxi's case I'm counting it as two, EBF + EBB, not 6. Siphoning strikes, in my humble opinion is a heal, despite technically being an attack. I also don't consider a lunge as a true attack since your really using it for nailed to the ground adv or…
  • hey buddy, had to necro-bump this thread in hopes you get inspired in re-posting a new updated thread on this...
  • hi, thanks! You know, just the other day I pseudo tanked gravitar again and, yup, I found myself not using conviction much. I swapped it for Svangile's Guile for some more dmg. I was thinking of rolling another alt with either Invulnerability or Lightning Reflexes. Hmm...
  • Sorry but I have to disagree with to an extent. I highly disagree with the fact you are calling folks that decide NOT to go give in to the most commonly used powers as "newbies". Just on your other thread where I posted a video, I showed that it is capable of getting 5 kills using theme. And on "theme" subject, you're as…
  • Correct. I am probably one of the most notably 'different' in the sense of builds within Spectre. I use THEMATIC builds, like Glaceon using Ice Slide in BASH. Yes! Ice Slide!! As far as respecting other players? always respect other players. I don't farm them new folks entering BASH... I'm being encouraged to turn some of…
  • I don't recall it being spammed back in 2009. Around late 2010 or even as late as mid 2011 it was when it started being spammed like crazy as well as spiked for one-shots. In 2009, I recall Where's the Kaboom being popular, as well as Electrocute, till they got nerfed.
  • Yup. After sniping folks from afar, I noticed more folks doing the same.
  • how many points do u get for using Ice Slide and Snowball Roll and no teleport, using Ice Form, spam sniping the crap out of Hard Frost with Glaceon Star? The build is the same I have on the guide I wrote (Sig)
  • So does Whirlwind and Snowstorm... Im assuming, and only assuming, that since at launch, in September 09, Snowstorm and Ebon Rift were the only two of its type, and the damage Ebon Rift is far greater than Snowstorm's.But just like other powers in different categories, new powers keep getting made while old powers get left…
  • Necro'n this thread. it too darn useful to be buried (and missed it the first time around)
  • Just a little while back, @Monsterdaddy or @Cryone posted a build using only/mostly Telepathy before the new mini-Telepathy roled out. Surprisingly, One of the gentlemen pointed out that Ego Blast and it's adv (Mind Opener?) worked similar to the way Ice Blast + Hard Frost worked. I tested it out myself an came out quite…
  • Dear @ayonachan, From one vet to another, I'd like to give you props on the detailed numbers you give out, like the post above and this post. I use them quite frequently in figuring out stats. Can you make a single thread with all the values you've found thus far? That'd be awesome, especially if it were to be sticky-ed.…
  • Ok, hopefully this will help out. In the following, No specializations or powers were activated, just AoRP at rank 3 and different amounts of Pre. Hybrid Role 113 Presence: 23% Others 201 Presence: 32% Others 245 Presence: 36% Others 317 Presence: 43% Others 369 Presence: 48% Others 441 Presence: 55% Others 494 Presence:…
  • iirc, 696 Pre equals to 141% dmg resistance to others.
  • Hi! Int can be a viable Primary, especially coupled with Revitalize, however, I suggest Ego Primary due to the damage specs, like crit chance/crit severity, which will not be as easily attainable, if at all in the Int spec tree. The focus of this particular build is to make the most out of what's available to Celestial, in…
