Ok so I just read someone was having a hard time with Levv's final boss on easy. I remember finishing that fight pretty much before it began. So something is obviously wrong and, I have determined that whatever skills they were using, sucked. This doesn't have to be the case. I can kill most any boss in roughly 8 seconds on easy. (minus the small character bosses that move around alot, they take a bit longer) I also tested my setup out on Sephia's final boss on hard just to see if it worked and yes, its also possible with ease. Ok, onto the goods. Ah, but before that I will mention.

LOOK FOR GOLD ENEMIES, THEY DROP SOME OF THESE SKILLS.

ACTIVES

Radiant Sphere - This will kill all your bosses/big guys/summon towers as you sit back and laugh. Just set the sphere on top of whatever you want killed and watch it die. Find this skill in Colunei Canyon on Galen

Lightning Bolt - This is your mob destroyer, fire into a mob and watch as it dominates pretty much everything. Find this in Levv's Crystal Cave stage.

Mirror Image - This skill lets you mimic the skill you used LAST. Needless to say being able to do 2 Spheres or Bolts is pretty much awesome. Find this in Galen's Interior Castle Gates stage.

As far as a fourth skill goes, do whatever you want cuz you wont really need it. I like quake just cause it has a nice big AoE.


PASSIVES

Ethereal - Since orb attacks are failsauce screw them and opt for faster skill recharge. You get this skill by doing one of the first missions online. I just forget what mode. Possibly Escort as said by someone below.

Quick Draw - This skill is nice as it often times significantly reduces re-use delay on skills. Find in Levv's Colunei Canyon.

Magic Empower - Stronger magic, obvious choice. Found in Sephia's first mission.

Quick Magic - Again, the main goal is to speed up the re-use on Lightning Bolt as much as much as possible. I don't have this skill currently but I just saw it on the loading screen, so I assume its a passive and would fit nicely in the build.


---
Plan of Attack:
Play Galen's stages because some of these skills are going to be found in them until you unlock Levv. Then use Levv and GET Lightning Bolt asap. Then start accumulating the other skills. Save Maggni/Zazi for last as I dont think their stories net you any of these mentioned skills. Once you have these skills it will significantly speed up their stories and the rest of whatever you have remaining.

Needless to say you will want to max out all these skills to level 5 asap. Lightning Bolt, Ethereal and Quick Draw being the most important and thus should be leveled up decently first.


Sorry about the missing information but the locations are all going off of memory and acquiring random skills isnt something that I make a point to remember. This small pwning guide is pretty much ment to give a direction on what you want to do if you want to dominate asap. Or tell the people that have obtained these skills and haven't ever used them that they are sitting on a gold mine and should. =D


If I messed up on any of the locations which might be the case for the ones I sound iffy on, oh well, I try. =P If any one knows those locations for sure then feel free to post and I'll edit it in.

Enjoy.


P.S.

I tested to see if they stack and they DO INDEED stack. NOTE: All skills are level 5.
Sephia with Starter weapon / Ethereal / Quick Draw
6 second recharge Quick Draw activite / 12 second recharge no activation

Sephia with Starter weapon / Quick Draw
8 second recharge Quick Draw activite / 14 second recharge no activation

Sephia with Quick Draw
11 second recharge Quick Draw activite / 21 second recharge no activation

I do not have Quick Magic so I cannot test with that skill but I assume it would post even better times.

To Sephia users:
This shows that for this build to be at its best you NEED to use Sephia's starter weapon for a huge re-charge delay decrease. Also, I do not yet have Sephia's final weapon to see if there is any hidden variables making that an option.

With this setup you can finish Sephia's final boss stage in 25 seconds netting you 9000 souls per run. Yay fast levels. =P (Use starter weapon for faster recharge)

You obtain each characters final weapon by completing the last stage of each of the different modes. IE: Survivor, Race, Maze, etc.

After completing all the storylines, I would have to say Sephia's is probably going to be the easiest to complete on Hard. The only possibly betch part would be the Trials Boss. The end boss my method pwns it no problem.

Lightning bolt is in crystal cave for levv

Mirror image is galens interrior castle gates

Quick draw is coleni cavern for Levv

Magic empower found in sephias first mission

I'm almost 100% positive ethereal is not in either maggnis or galens story at least in the early beginning.

Also the same person who said Levvs last two missions were hard also had a strategy very similar to what you're saying. Lol.

Ethereal is rewarded for doing the online co-op Escort 1 or 2.

I thought Quick Draw was from Zazi's second to last mission.

Also afaik none of the cooldown reduction skills like Ethereal/Quick Magic/Quick Draw stack, but I haven't maxed Quick Draw so I can't confirm that.

Grizzablo
07-05-2010, 01:06 AM
YES, you are right on the Ethereal. It IS in co-op. Would explain why I had it early on, I did co-op straight away xD

Also, my friend has only done one level with Zazi yet has Quick Draw, so that cannot be the case.

Also Des, if he had a build similar to mine, well, he's doing something wrong. lolol

AND, I tested to see if they stacked, they all do.

Strange, I just picked up quick draw with levv today in coleni cavern. Could be that multiple accessories are accessible? However I never got quick draw with zazi from the first level...hmm, maybe something else?

and I figured it was co-op.

There are multiple quick ones, quick enhancement and quick draw are the two I am aware of.

I'm about to do some multiplayer so I'll make a list of all the accessories from them. If anyone wants to join in send me a message.

Edit: Its escort 1

Oh I ment that he DIDN'T get it from Zazi's level because he has only done one. I also think I found it on Levv, so I believe there is only one place to obtain for each.

Lol, I feel like I should have copyrighted my advice.

You mention the exact same thing I did in multiple threads. It's a strategy that works so no harm in reposting it.

Ok I took the time to look at other posts to find yours and you mention Radiant Sphere and Mirror Image yes. But thats pretty much the most gold when it comes to bosses. No mention of Lightning Bolt though, and that is what shaves off huge amounts of time with normal mobs of enemies. Lightning Bolt is epic!

I also mentioned a boosting top for Sephia for the final boss on "Sin"

Radiant Sphere kills him in seconds.

I didn't like lightening that much. It was more limited than Quake but it did have a shorter cooldown. I prefer to carry heal as that third spell.

Quake doesn't kill as efficiently as Bolt does though. I like the AoE range but would rather them close together for Bolt =P

I primarily use Sephia so the object is to spam magic as fast as possible and that just isnt possible with quake.

Unless you're playing on hard heal isn't needed imo and even then I dunno really. I never needed it. The only time I died was on the big dragon and the behemoth when it came time to mashing X button I wasnt paying attention xD I tried out lvl 5 heal. It's so slow I couldn't possibly imagine lvl 1 lol :p Whatever works for you though =D

BTW none of these skills have any use during the final phase of Maggni's Tramont Defense boss fight. This is seriously screwing with my hard difficulty play through because of how cheap this boss fight is.

well can anyone help me real quick?
The game defaulted me on hard so everything's almost impossible because i think Levv is too weak. I'm stuck on the Crystal Cave boss that keeps regenerating. Those stupid rock things they throw at me knock me out and I lose the mission within 10 seconds almost everytime. I REALLLY need some help..

This is the type of game to play on normal first, then on hard later.

Boss is dumb as shit, IMO. I'd go with maxed out improved curse and get each of the heads down to a small bit of health. Radiant orb doesn't hit the faces :( so I don't know what you could use in its stead.

Radiant Sphere only tickles The Lord of the Night (Levv's version) on hard....... Everything just tickles him damn it.

Oh and I just noticed your numbers in the first post, what level do you have Sephia's starter weapon at? and could you test without the weapon but with Ethereal?

Well Levv's last 2-3 missions were absolute bullshit. Boring and dense to work through. I can imagine the last boss being hard, I had to grind him out even on easy difficulty with Levv.

Exactly why I don't plan to use Maggni for my hard run. =P I'mma use Sephia.

Kill the one with the rock things floating around it, then attack the pink floaty ball thing. I would suggest you get Radiant Sphere for that cuz it doesn't stay down long. Or you could just set it to easy and get geared up and then tackle a hard run.

It was either level 1 or level 10 I don't remember but I don't believe levels change the weapon ability effectiveness. Also, no I won't test that because this is Sephia, she sucks with melee and none of her other weapons make sense to use. The object is fastest recharge possible. Thus, starter weapon. =P
That's why I say Sephia would probably be the easiest on hard. Aside from the Trial Boss.

You have to do it with every character apparently. I already did Sephia and Zazi's missions on hard like two days ago.

They do.

Somebody has tested with Levv's weapons that increase attack speed and attack range and said they do not stack with the passive abilities that increase attack speed and attack range. Which is why I'm asking for just a test with Ethereal and not the starter weapon.

And I just tested without starter weapon using Ethereal and its the same as using the starter weapon W/O ethereal. At least when said weapon is lvl 10. Still worth using both imo for that extra 2 seconds shaved off. =P

i'm surprised no one said anything about dimensional freeze and using the void . I can honestly say that dominates any mob on the field easy .

I used it when playing Sephia and Maggni, even with maxed Magic Empower it did not kill things in one cast with Maggni though but it was great crowd control.

Also would like to add that Empower Magic does wonders in terms of damage. I was barely managing against Sin without it and with it turned Sin into a 25 second battle
