Old Ascalon[edit]

Day 1[edit]

First vanquish for my ele using a collector's staff without any of the 2 upgrades and no insignias on my armor. Took Rebirth as a "must" to avoid wipes. Life Bond to "bond" Alesia and only received a max of 2 damage points but mostly 1 damage or none at all. Still have no Earth Magic elite to fit in my builds. Will swap Ward Against Foes for Ward Against Melee but don't think Alesia's AI will recognise it and remain inside it but run off any direction.

  • Stefan was the star of the day: Thrill of Victory plus Skull Crack pawned both Crown of Thorns pairs and also helped to beat a group of three Grawl Ulodytes, wouldn't have made it without this henchman.
  • Reyna was solid damage and her poison very useful. Though AI arrows were blocked when bad positioned.
  • Alesia needed small breaks between large fights.

The worst challenge here were the Crown of Thorns that spawn two together and heal each other, same for the Grawl Ulodyte. I couldn't outdamage their heals but waited until they would run-out of energy while auto-attacking (wanding) and when they started to show weakness, unleashed full attack.

Blind condition recommended to reduce damage from Whiptail Devourers and Hulking Stone Elementals.

You have earned 1.220 experience and 1.220 gold!
