  1. Magisterial Onslaught, a new faster way to +35 *13 NT weapon. just get any OT weapon from newest CF, drop on the EQ too if you are lucky, then collect Ether Fuse from this EQ x20, trade to the NT weapon from Zieg and you got a *13 weapon with max grind level 35 (without wasting time get the copy) … congratulation sega …

    1. How did you managed to get this? I tried with a sword from CF but when converted to NT it remained at +0

    2. when Reinforcer said +35, he is referring to "Max Grind 35" and not the actual upgrade +35 itself.

    3. This is a little bit misleading. Only some of the weapon from CF is OT (fortunately there's 1 for each class). You need to grind the weapon to +5 and potent lv3 (+35 total) in order to instantly get +35 when upgraded to NT. You need to obtain some copy for 60 ele unless you only want it for factor fodder or lv cap/expert block unlocking.

      Hint: You can also trade your Kagaseo stones for those OT *13.

    4. Just check my NT sword from OT Collection file, its potential max grind is +35, didnt go through what Hikomr said

    5. What i mean is when you want to get your NT instantly grinded to +35 for quick factor fodder/unlocking requirement. IMO grinding OT is easier and cheaper thanks to grind skip and grind boost item from excube. It needs more lambda grinder tho. I guess i worded things badly too lol.

    6. Why did everyone whine about OT 13star grind and why do we praise NT gring when "OT is easier and cheaper"? After grind skip 5 you have 50% chance for success, for 20 excubes you can raise it to 80% but then there's the -1 ~ -3 risk, now either you buy -2 risk for fun or full risk for 200k meseta.

      I would like to see you grind OT to pot3 with less then 2,5 mil meseta now and less then 1mil when we have Empe Rappy around. Do your magic dude.

    7. lol chill dude. That's why i said 'in my opinion'. If you already have a lot of empe rappy laying around, NT grinding will probably cheaper. But if you resort to buying premade exp fodder, the cost will probably end up more expensive. I don't know about other people but for me cube is probably the easier to obtain compared to emper fodder which very rarely spawn outside of seasonal/bonus quest. And lol -2 risk i never used that other than the one i got for free. Using -1 and +30% usually enough for me to +40 a *13. Me and my friends stopped complaining about OT grinding eversince -1 risk and +30% booster become easier to obtain tho.

      Well, dunno. I have a lot of cube lying around and none of the emper fodder because IRL shyds and EQ schedule clashing…and when i have it i usually sell it for easy meseta lol

    8. I'm going to say that if you buy the right items from shop/NPC it's still cheaper to grind NT weapons then OT and you don't need to fight with Dudu with 80% chance, I don't know how many 30% you would use (50% chance after +5 skip), but i'm going to say that you could turn in your excubes(that you would use for 30% item) into grinders, sell it to NPC and it would most likelly fully cover the NT grind cost without any Empe items.

      Who even buys overpriced +26/+30 12star NT weapons? lol, lmao, rofl, xd

    9. All the exp fodder on visiphone is overpriced tho not only the *12 ones. Since you brought the "but you can sell the materials used for x meseta"…well, i can also just sell a cheaply made exp fodder for way higher price and cover the cost of OT grinding as well. Depending on how you make it, making exp fodder also consume a lot of photon drop/sphere which still have a potential buyer in visiphone unlike grinder. The non-emper alternative also tedious and time wasting, especially the npc shop method.
      It looks like you're misunderstanding something. I never say "Hurrdurr NT grinding sucks", in fact i love it. That is until my stock of exp fodder running out and i end up buying premade fodder because i have no time. On the other hand i never run out of cube and risk protection. Okay lets finish here because i'll be busy for the next few weeks and probably won't check here anyway.
