Default GK defense

Hello fellow Tyrrs

I need some advice with my defense setup. Somehow I'm getting hit pretty hard for my level, and thought maybe you all could give me any advice on this (talking about AF instance, sometimes NM kama, Tavern and Gludio instances, ofc. same apply if I'm trying to go solo in AF, HB lower hunting mobs (haven't even tried to do GC lower).

My current setup:
LVL 101
Seraph light set (full element) +8 (2 parts blessed)
Blessed QA
Soul Frintezza necklace
Ring of creation
Zaken
Oly PVP stun earring
PVE belt
Dimensional shirt (the one from the 30 day quest, if I remember correctly, had no luck with Shiny Shirt)
Talisman - Desire
Venirs 10
Talisman - Hunter Abudance
Diamond lvl 3
Ruby lvl 3
Tanzanite lvl 2
Opal lvl 2
Exalted tiara +50 element
+15 STR dyes

When I'm fully buffed and even with Rose I have only around 7-8k P.def with Wild Roar totem.
How can it be that I'm so low on PDF, is the seraph light set +8 really so bad, or I urgently need talisman of Abudance for the extra 1k PDF?

Any advice would be much appreciated.

octavis/istina shirt is 'slightly' better and not expensive
buying clan hall siege belt (+5% dmg made - 5% dmg received) or monkey belt (tad expensive, but 7% dmg made instead of 5% + some resists) would not be a bad idea - pve belt has only +6% dmg made, so with CH belt you lose 1% dmg made but gain 5% less dmg received.
for pve valakas necklaces or octavis warrior is better (+ to p.atak, but no + to stun and knock back)


completing blessing of your armour and making abundance will give you a nice boost of p.def generally.


also look in your sub class skills, if you can, with light armour, take p.atak, p.def and evasion, I assume you don't need atk speed or p.crit rate as it should be maxed.

p.def is one thing, but with high enough evasion, you will take much less dmg simply by avoiding taking it ;-)

plus, remember about faction talismans, you can put nice % dmg reduction from them in particular areas

I cannot remember the name of the shirt, but I know it has +2 or +3 stats and was a little bit better than Octa/Istina. But will double check when I will be at the PC.

Good point about the Belt, will consider it.
Valakas necklace a bit expensive, IMO, but worth a try.

Really good point about the sub skills, as I think I still have crit rate and attack speed, which is not relevant anymore.

About blessing the light set, yeah that is also on my to do list, as wanted to try to make it +10 and blessed, but not sure if it is worth the investment, as maybe an Eternal +8 will be cheaper, better over time. But that's also really expensive imo.

But considering all your suggestions it seems that I'm not doing anything particularly bad, simply need some upgrades. One moment I even thought that I haven't learned the light armor mastery, as in AF1 I earned the most damage from the boss (one EVI got also hit quite hard).

Make sure to stack your element properly too. This will make the biggest difference in pve. If all youre focused on is PVE (and it should be imo), Put all your armor to dark and earth defence. You will notice a huge difference. Blessing the other pieces of armor will help alot too, so do it asap.

It's probably time to consider upgrading to Eternal Leather Set. I know you get bonuses with the +8 Seraph Set, but you'll always be squishy in it compared to Eternal. With packs rewarded from the Heine fishing event, prices for Eternal Leather parts should drop dramatically.


I would probably also start saving up for either a Talisman Abundance Level 1, or an Anakim Talisman. Both add 971 pdef to your stats. I'm not knocking the Talisman Hunter, but there are times when I leave it in the WH and use the Abundance that gives me more survivability. Great offense isn't always the best defense.

Good point about changing elements, will try that, thank you!

Yeah, I was considering upgrading to Eternal+8 or +10 but I'm afraid that will be a bit too expensive for me as without regular playing the incomes are low... Thought it is a good point considering that as you are right armor parts are really cheap at this moment.

Anakim talisman and Abudance lvl1 is on my list, yes

I've compared eternal +8 (not bless) to TW +8 bless, and TW bless is better, for adena saved you get abu 1 or anakim.

only reason to go R99 is if you go all the way to dark or bloody in near future.
on that note, if you go r99+8, you don't have to Bloody it all at same time, 2 bloody items will make a world of difference.

But plain R99 +6+7 are not worth anyone's time.
