How to Beat High-Dodge Players


Bellato is race that specializes in dodge. Unlike Accretians who has enormouse HP and huge defence in their armors, and Cora who rely on attack power rather than defence. Bellato can have the highest dodge in the game among other races, due to their Holy Force called "Evasion". Once Bellatos have this buff, this adds 30 dodge to their character giving it more evasion.

Most players get irritated on hitting high-dodge people cause they always miss on these kind of players. All they see on their screen is Miss! Miss! Miss! There are two ways to counter dodge. One way is through the use of AOE Spells/Skills. But they don't do enough damage and require groups to focus fire on the high-dodge player, and you'll just be wasting your AOE on a single target rather than use it on players clumped together. So I would prefer to use the other way of countering dodge which is having a high Accuracy.

Accuracy is the way to counter dodge. Cora is the race that mastered accuracy or aiming. Accretia have launcher armor which gives lots of accuracy. You might lose a lot of attack power just to have these high accuracy. You might replace your attack rings/amulets with aim rings. You might use composed chargers instead of adrenaline pots. You might replace your Int weapon with a Pine Weapon. And you might lose some defense on your gloves just to have the 4 grace talic glove, but its worth it. Once you have enough accuracy to be able to land hits 100% all the time on these dodging people, you'll be critical-hitting them also most of the time. Some people say accuracy doesn't raise critical hit. But believe me, it does. Mystics can benefit from the melee accuracy buff as well. You should try it. Accuracy or aiming raises critical hit probability as well as chaos talics. So you might want to use a Pine weapon inserted Chaos Talics but i would prefer Pine Weapons inserted with Keen Talics, cause for me Chaos Talics go well with Sharp Weapons since Sharp Weapons raise critical probability by 5%, meaning the higher your critical hit rate (Chaos Talics), the more you benefit from the Sharp Weapon's 5% increase in critical hit probability.

Now you might wonder what is critical hit? Critical hit is landing the highest damage you can dish out to your opponent/monsters. Critical hit's best asset is its stunning ability. If you critical hit someone or a monsters. It is stunned for a moment. Monsters get stunned for a longer time. While other players/opponents get stunned in a fraction of second. But it's still worth it. A player stunned cannot use potions or do anything which is good in disabling enemies for a while.

So how to counter high-dodge people? Use high accuracy. High Accuracy enables you to hit them 100% all the time and give you stunning ability (critical hit) which disables them from using potions which in turn could bring them down easily cause high-dodge people are mostly rangers. Rangers have low life and rely on potions greatly to gain back lost life. If they cannot use potions due to the stunning effect. That will be their end. I'll post a followup topic on how to beat BlackMaus after this.

Story Line


The game is centered on the conflict between three races (descendants of the now extinct human race) in their bid to control precious resources, and their desire to advance their respective agendas, through any means necessary. There are three different races: Accretia - A race of cyborgs who were forced to turn to artificial bodies due to the harsh environment on their home planet. Now they have forsaken flesh in their pursuit of perfection, and they scorn every flesh being in the universe. Their metallic bodies are the toughest in the game and their technology is the most superior, but they have no access to magic. Bellato - Due to the intense gravity on their home planet, the Bellato are the smallest people. They are a race of inventors that are able to combine creative tools and weapons with the Light form of universal magic called the Force. The Bellato enter the war as the least physically capable; and yet given their ingenuity they have the potential to become the strongest. Before they became the Bellato Union, however, they were the Bellato Empire; who seized control after the Cora civil war but were beaten by the Accretians. Under such sustained attacks they fell from power, yet they have bided their time until they can become a force to be reckoned with once again. Cora - They are an ancient race that scorn technology. Highly spiritual and gifted with natural magical abilities, Corites regard themselves as the highest form of creation. Their magical arts are far more superior to that of which the Bellato practice. Their god is Decem, whom they believed had given Corites their powers as well as their mission to subjugate all other forms of life in his name and to rid the galaxy of technology.
