Ok first legit question.

At EGO 1339 should I have seen an Orange Item yet? I have purchased about 10 Tier 4 lock boxes and 3 Tier 3 since someone suggested that. But I went right back to tier 4 because it just didn't feel right. I've also completed all of the Co-op instances multiple times as well. I am not even sure if you can get orange items from those but I am trying anyways.

I have only ever seen legendaries from lockboxes. I have heard claims of orange grenades/shields from arkfall, but no first hand experience of that occuring.

The RNG is a *****. Getting a legendary doesn't mean something good, as junk legendaries are fairly common.

Given the amount of lockboxes you've done, you should have gotten at least one legendary by now.

Immunizer in PVP is easily the most effective. But it's going to get nerfed soon as it's so heavily overpowered.

I want to like assault rifles more, but it's hard to pick one over the immunizer.

The berzerker shotgun I want to like, as it sounds good and has a nice feel, but the damage is always disappointingly low.

Easiest/fastest to level up is detonators if you use the correct spot.

5k build? for shadow wars I just take a immunizer and a blast rifle, then take a speed/survival build.
For PvE. I just take overcharge and abilities related to it with a LMG and ground pounder.

No fruit.

Currently, adding a scope is worthless, and in most cases reduces accuracy for sniper rifles. However, the -30 accuracy hipfire scope for shotguns works good, just avoid the ones that give "+movement accuracy".

I like to use the cerberus if I have one other player to play with, so I have two vehicle perks. Other than that, just take speed/survival perks. If using purely a on foot build, drops the vehicle perks for +crit. Immunizers have a high chance of critting when homing.

I think in one of the posts I read you felt your eyes were bleeding from having "grinded" too much that day. It seems kind of self-destructive. But if that is what you enjoy than it is fine.

I am both
* In awe that you managed to grind through every pursuit in the game
* Confused that you would bother doing that

I do appreciate your community participation and answering questions from your experience... I hope you stick around or come back whenever new content is there or DLC releases. Hopefully those things will be fun to experience and feel fresh and enjoyable.

At a point the only real "goal" of the game I had left was to be first to get to 5,000. Which was a bit odd as there were others with higher EGO levels than me by quite a lot, and I didn't consider it till I hit about ego 4,000. However I found out that those people needed pursuits that they could not grind (dailies and faction stuff)

For raw EXP, you have three options.

1. Run mine 99 (the mission, not the co-op). It's been nerfed, but grinding it will still give a decent/constant amount of EXP.

2. Do SMASH or the hellbug/minigun trials over and over.

3. Do emergencies and arkfalls. Do the emergencies when no arkfalls are up, certain ones are very quick and can reward 4,000+ exp such as "A new pair of genes" (Use a ground pounder on the Monarch and this emergency is over in 10 seconds) and "99'er Roadblock" (Kill about 6 99'ers and it's over). When doing arkfalls, you want to land killshots on the bosses, which alone can reward up to 16,700 exp, on top of the 7,000 or so for participating, you also get the keycodes and two random nade/shields. If you do "Revolting hellbugs" only tag it and move on, the Hellion boss does not reward killshot EXP or bonus salvage/scrip like the other bosses do, it is also the longest major arkfall.

What are your perks of choice for survival or general PvE? I feel like most of them are too conditional to make full use of.. Thick Skin is pretty boss but it could be a long 15 seconds before the next one.. And percentage reductions seem weak unless you pile them up.

So for survival I only found use in Thick Skin, fortitude, and for a weaker mob area the one that negates dmg after a kill... Otherwise I tend to just use crit+ perks, intimidation, or prepardness..

My guess.

The development team for Defiance was moved, laid off, or sent to work on another game. They bring in a new set of devs who are not familiar with the code, and try to patch the game, resulting in many broken patches.

Contrary to popular belief, it is not a hamster on a wheel powering the servers. The Devs are actually the ones running on the wheels, and the hamster is the one that writes the code.

I've wasted 456 hours on worse games.

If you put a barrel mod on your gun, it changes how the gun physically looks in game.

I have a nano fragger with a barrel mod on and it makes the thing much larger, put a full range of mods on and it becomes bigger than most guns in the game.

Alright, here it is!

Go to big stone reach and find the mission "Saving Echelon". Save the four mercs, then go to the hole in the northern wall, wait there for two and a half minutes, and then EGO will say "Careful! We've got a lot more hellbugs on their way!"

At this point, a wave of 10 skitterlings will spawn, kill them, and they respawn a few seconds later.

I will note, that weapon experience in based on damage done, and that overkill damage counts to weapon experience. Dealing 2,000 damage to 10 skitterlings will give 20,000 weapon exp. As a result, Stack most of the +ego and +explosive perks at once, respec if necessary. You should be able to keep overcharge constantly going as well as dealing 2,000 damage or more per shot.

This works best with explosive weapons (some explosive weapons don't benefit from explosive perks like the clustershot or courier, even though they are still the best ways to level those weapon types)

The following weapons work best for each skill type. You mainly want high damage with a large explosive radius.

Launchers - Rocket pod, Longshot Cannon, Armada
Detonators - Big boomer, Grenade launcher
Combat Shotguns - Clustershot
Sawed-off Shotguns - Courier

Dude, you're awesome.

I may be able to answer this one. Use a weapon like the Derailer or VOT Breaker Cannon and take the "Wrecking Ball" perk up to rank III (it's near blur). You can also combine it with powers like cloak and overcharge, but that really isn't necessary.

With that kind of build, you'll be able to one shot all of the 4 wheelers and it will only take a few shots to destroy a Cerberus. I recommend camping outside of the middle capture point in a Shadow War where people are flying in constantly on their ATVs. You can get upwards of 30 Vehicle destructions in a match.

Skarth
05-18-2013, 01:54 PM
do you have any tips for destroying enemy vehicles in shadow wars?

Derailer and breaker cannon are anti-vehicle weapons. There is a perk that deals large amounts of bonus damage to vehicles as well.

If you don't want to bother with that, a SAW will tear up vehicles with ease.



There's been a number of discussion regarding whether or not it's possible to get more than 2600 EGO from XP alone -- that is, if it's possible to still get EGO from XP once you have enough EGO points to fill the EGO grid.

Care to chime in?

After getting me 260th EGO level up, I no longer receive experience or have an experience bar. I heard some other players were capable of leveling up after getting their 260th level, but that has been patched I'm pretty sure, or I didn't hear what happened correctly.



Sorry ill explain better.

You told us the best way to level 4 weapon classes and the best weapon for each class to level eg:sawed off shotgun: courier

What im asking is which weapon is best to use in all the other classes of guns eg:infectors: canker..

And what farming method you used to level the other gun skill classes?

Assault Rifles - VBI Assault Rifle (Can be bought at vendors easily, not a huge difference between most of them)
Sub-Machine Guns - VOT Pulsar (Can be bought at vendors easily, not a huge difference between most of them)
Light Machine Guns - FRC SAW / Frontier SAW
Combat Shotguns - Clustershot (If using hole in the wall method)
Pump Shotguns - Any of the non-slug firing shotguns is almost as good as the others, it varies a bit on playstyle though.
Sawed Off Shotguns - Courier (If using hole in the wall method), otherwise, use a Nano Fragger.
Bolt Action Sniper Rifles - VOT Bolter (Faster firing rate lets you pump out more damage than other bolt rifles)
Semi Auto Sniper Rifles - Quick Repeater (The lightweight frame one)
Pistols - Wolverine or Blaster (Wolverine is better, but the Blaster can be readily bought at vendors)
Rocket Launchers - Rocket Pod, Longshot Cannon, Armada (If using hole in the wall method)
Detonators - Big Boomer (Definately the best, but hard to get a hold of lots of these), VBI Grenade launcher
Infectors - Canker (Avoid semi-autos and the incubator)
BMGs - Telespanner (If you plan to level BMGs, hoard up a lot of these)

Using the hulker at Project Aegis part 1, and San quentin are both popular choices for leveling weapons. By standing on certain terrain (like static vehicles) you can make the hulker get stuck and they won't attack you.

I may make a video for leveling BMGs


Why does the PVP suck so bad? Did they not try it out first?

This is primarily a PvE game, and perks do not appear to have been tested for PvP very much. With the recent staff layoffs at Trion, I doubt we will see PvP get balanced for a long time.

Can you recommend me a good bolt action rifle stronger then my 1360 or 1310 not sure and where do i get it. What mods should i attach to it? Another sniper loadout for me. Also the quickest way for me to complete the pursuit snipe from shadows?

I'm a fan of Assault Rifles. Could you explain what is the difference in stats between VBI Assault Rifle and EMC Service Rifle and which one is better, and why is better?

Madog claims to have 32 days of played time.

Given there is no afk timer or such, you could easily leave yourself logged in and rack up near constant play time without actually playing. So take these numbers with a grain of salt.

So what you're trying to say is that Defiance isn't a second full time job for you, instead idling Defiance is a second job.

Got ya.

There is no higher damage sniper rifle.

Most important mod will be either +crit barrel or +dam barrel, depends on whether you like body shots or headshots more.

You shouldn't need any help on snipe from shadows, it's all self explanatory.

There is no difference, they just have different names.

Don't know what is at your ego rating, at mine EMC Service Rifle has better critical multiplier and magazine capicity. Also it's shooting with fire nano effects. I'm 1450 ego rating and at this point EMC Service Rifle is better.

Still hard to say what is better - Frontier Saw LMG or EMC Service/VBI Assault Rifle. Or VOT Assault Rifle. Each has some advantages and disadvantages. I would go with EMC Service Rifle, lowest damage but decent fire rate and high capacity of magazine.

Edit: I asked you because I was curious if there is anything I didn't notice about VBI Assault Rifle.

From your experience, what is the "base" scrip value for each legendary weapon category (how much scrip do people usually want to spend for an orange gun)?

I'm just looking for an approximate value for each weapon category (bmg/pistol/smg/lmg/ar/rocket/guided/infector/gl/sa sniper/ba sniper), not a value for every weapon variant (matchlock/big boom/ground pounder/auto lobber/etc).

-Ex: I've seen people spend between A-B scrips to purchase an orange pistol-

After hitting the EGO cap, I'm out of things to do, so for tonight, if you post any questions here, I'll answer them as straight as I can.

Try to keep it game related.So when you attach a shot converter, does the nano effect that you're "converting" the gun to stack with previous nano effects? Or does it literally change the nano effect to w/e the shot converter is.

Example:
Syphon Weapon + toxic converter => syphon and toxic weapon?
or
syphon weapon + toxic converter => toxic weapon?

There isn't a base price. The price of a legendary always depends on the stats of it. you could have a assault rifle worth 5k, or 500k.

I have not tested this.

My assumption is that it simply converts it to the new nano effect and that is it.

did you carry two different weapon types for example an ar and a pistol, and then level up pistols and ars to 20 then move on to another weapon class? or did you mix it up?

I typically mixed it up a bit.

Usual load-out was a LMG/AR/Pistol/Shotty in first slot, then a Bolt sniper or semi-auto sniper in the secondary.

I have a vbi rocket launcher. Actually four of them... But anyway, of the two I use the most, one has two rockets of experience recorded and the other one. I can't for the life of me figure out what I hit to give me one rockets worth of hit points on the weapon xp bar. I almost exclusively use them in pvp. And once in a while if I still am in that class when I come out of pvp and fast travel straight to a boss at an arc fall. But I've went back and put shots on each boss. Even got the kill shot on the progenator and the hellion. Still only the one rocket on the bar. So weird...
