    so i'll cap instantly after the reset for sparks of evo

    edit: apparently without premium you can't get sparks of evo, so i'm not sure how long it takes to cap on class sparks without premium but sparks of insight is literally no time at all

    Yea....I'm kind of addicted to PVP.

    How are you dudes capping R/B/G sparks so quickly? I'm around 7k Prestige and I'm coming nowhere near the caps. Good thing they increase every week.

    If you get a 3x adventure it's a huge payout, class sparks off Port Naori's first boss is painless enough and first time adventuring in open zones is fuel enough but are the huge payouts all tied up in 5mans?

    I can cap in about a day of solid adventuring. I just look for what I need. I also have premium and a shitload of spark replicators so that speeds things up

    Pretty much this, also 10v10 isn't a bad use of time. I wouldn't worry about capping just play the game as you get to higher prestige you'll hit the cap easy. I hit 21k this week but now I'm sitting on my hands unless I want to push for small equipment upgrades

    5man 3x with premium and replicators can give over 2k sparks of insight

    I've been playing for about 2 weeks now and I am curious about the best method to fill out the ascencion atlas. Is it better to fill in an entire section to move on or move to unlock other classes? I know other classes have their own atlas's to earn more prestige. Right now I just have the 3 main classes unlocked around 4k prestige.

    depending on what class you want to "main" generally you want to go after specific symbols. DPS prioritizes on kinetic/archer symbols from class symbols as well as lacerated wounds/maximum recoil and in some instances ultimate strength also mark of death but that's a ways off if you're 4k prestige.

    i would just google whatever class you think you want to play the most and look at a guide and go from there, nothing is really set and stone and we have balance patches inc, but that's what i'd suggest

    Played Kinetic in one of the bonus missions today and man I was terrible at that... really don't understand the flow of that class. Seemed way under-powered but probably just the build.

    It's just the build. If you want to see what it can do, run an adventure with me and I can show ya ;P

    I've been meandering toward Archer at the moment but I have played with some kinetics and it looks fun too so its good that those are good jobs.

    Well, I found out all my shield power chapels are fucking useless as lightbinder. People did some testing and it affects shields cast on YOU not shields you cast on others. So, it's way more of a paladin trait. Freaking waste... ugh

    that sucks. I have already had to reroll some of my chapels myself. its a PITA. at least once i get god form it wont be as bad. you get x2 tablets rings and pommels. Im at about 18k right now myself. i just pushed myself about 2k upwards buying argents and pushing my temples. i am literally sitting right next to berserker, so fucking pissed about that, im 2 spaces off. =/ As you get higher in priestiege it gets easier to cap despite your cap also going up. Rewards are higher etc etc.
    I had a x2 as archer earlier. that build they had pissed me off SO fucking much, i went archer from 5-13k priestiege with my own build and the fucking one they give you didnt even have easy targets!. like what the fuck thats easily 20-40% of your dps right there. why the fuck would a god damn archer solo need to break sheilds anyway. 500% damage to shields is a worthless fucking talent when solo.

    Did you go into that adventure as Archer or were you a different class? I'm pretty sure I did one that required kinetic and I went as my kinetic build and romped through it.

    same exact thing happened to me, the nodes around the berserker one are super expensive.

    So what exactly determines the difficulty rating on the group finder? I've been trying Very Easy's all day and can't kill a damn thing. I am 6k prestige with 600 profiency. Tank gets eaten in seconds, dps can't kill a damn thing. This is ridiculous.

    All group dungeons are now "normal" after the prestige scaling update. At least that's the way I understood the patch notes.

    Normal for group finder, but can still do hard/impossible with a premade

    Yes, that's correct. You might be getting really low prestige tanks/dps that don't know what they're doing and they're being scaled to your level. Which is fine. But they might not have chapel bonuses/no traits unlocked/garbage abilities.

    You may as well solo very easy adventures. You might not get any loot though

    I went in as their build, and it didnt take my build. The build they had was garbage, electric shot did 500% damage to shields instead of easy targets doing 600% damage to burning targets. etc etc.
