Please fix oryx sun phase


#41

A bold assumption! With some proper footwork, it’s entirely possible to do a damageless Dance phase. I’ve yet to do so, as the best I did was as ~50 speed paladin, getting hit once by a star.

Finally someone who agrees! Chase is basically the worst phase if you don’t have a decent pet/vitality, because you have to tank a shot…or somehow slip past them via eldritch magiks.
Imo, increasing the width between the shots and lowering their frequency should help “fix” Chase.

Back on topic, Suns is probably what I would consider the hardest phase, for pretty much all reasons mentioned above. It’s inconsistent, nearly impossible to dodge, extremely punishing, and therefore lengthens the fight due to the unwillingness of people to go in.

I’d like to bring up a pre-emptive counter-counter-argument on this point:

Let’s compare it to Dance. Dance has three attacks - the red Scarabs circling Oryx (which are non-randomized), the white Stars (which are non-randomized, following two seperate shot angles), and the red bombs (which are, from what I could tell, semi-homing).

Instead of having its “main” bullets randomized like Suns (where the small, 100-damage shots take up the most room), only the heavy-hitting, slowly falling bombs are, to some extent, random.
If Suns were more consistent with its main shots, I think it’d be a great addition to the O2 fight.

I still use T12 weapons and T13 armour, also I’d rather do O2 over thicket.

(This might be my stupidest moment ever because I can’t figure out how to quote a post)

Theres a lot of things that can instantly kill you if you end up sitting on them or bad timing. I’ve lost a 6/8 warrior from the boss in udl. He spellbombed me xD. Dont give up. Dying allows the satisfaction you get when you finish rebuilding. I know it sucks but hey. Plus you got some fame now :slight_smile:


#44

lots of people use tops

and sadly most people go for oryx instead of thicket even with ST


#45

Ooooh are you part of the exclusive and elusive Thicket gang? :grinning:

I always do Thicket, and only do O2 if I need to get rid of an occasional incantation, and even when I do get an inc, I’m torn between doing O2 to use it or doing Thicket as usual.

Thicket’s an amazingly crafted dungeon, it’s a shame that people still prefer O2 over it or the other mini dungeons


#46

I just wanted st armor and I will never ever do O2 again honestly I enjoy soloing reef idk why


#47

To be fair, might be good that people focus on O2 more than the mini dungeons come to think of it. The mini dungeons can be fun to solo or do in a small group, rather than have a massive group start steamrolling through it. I’ve always found it fun to solo or do Thicket in a small group, and I can definitely see Reef’s appeal which shall be my next dungeon to grind after I get the Penetrating Blast Spell
