Hello,

i finished the first trail very easily but now after 1h in to trail 2 (kill 200 Dragons with Atonement) i only got 60 kills. I tried Abyssea Altepa with Wyverns and Puks but i evade MUCH more then i block. TP gain is VERY slow and the dmg from Atonement is abysmal anyway which makes this even more aggravating.

Any ideas? Use some older gear? Did not try Escha areas because it's full anyway and getting a mob to 2-3% health for a killing blow should be quite annoying.

Was it an Oregon Trail that you are getting stuck on? Those can be a ***.

Puks in wajaom woodlands on the southern area of the map work if abyssea hp is being the issue for the killshots.

I will say to just persevere and find your sweet spot to use atonement, if you can get gear that boost WS Dmg use that and use flash to spike enmity before using atonement.

It's a really shitty WS for killshots especially when you don't really generate that much enmity on weak mobs to boost the atonement damage.

Try dual wielding also, can main hand a higher damaging weapon that will increase the atonement slightly, and can off-hand Burtgang (the kills will still count). Any gear with WS DMG+ affects Atonement DMG as well.

Oh did not know that about the main/off hand. If i can use a 119 weapon as main then this should go much faster then a 40something dmg sword.

And crap what a nice spelling error oh well playing the "not first language card" o,o/

Koru, ulmia, qultada
/dnc with a multihit offhand, dont use sambas
Wear as much multihit and stp gear as possible..
And dont foght anything outside of an origi al zone because like for example a crab in kiftal has like maybe 1500 hp. Where a crab in abyssea has at least 5400.
Just find the sweet spot % of health that your atonement will take it out and go from there.
