Gear

The gear your aiming for now is of course the true end gear.
dim tree armor or red nose
tree belt or ancient weapon core
muskan shoes
bheg gloves
giath helmet
ogre ring or ancient guardian seal

the rest you should have by now XD (witch earing etc etc )
See :
http://thestronghold.nl/indepth-road-to-lvl-56-guide-with-basic-build-and-tips/

i went for the 2/2 build with a little mix up XD (and yes i know its not that spectacular atm still a work inprogess)
+15 taritas armor
+15 taritas shoes
+15 grunil helmet
+15 grunil gloves
2x Pri Blue coral ring
2x fugetive kalk earing
PRI ancient weapon core
PRI ancient guardian seal
PRI ultimate yuria axe
+12 upgraded iron buster
+11 saiyer ornamental knot
giving me : 123/100/190 ( hidden stats from gear and crystals excluded )

and i hear you thinking... wtf in you last guide you spoke of higher stats needed to even get 56 ... what's your deal bro ???

well verry simpel in my last guide was still learning and to be honest those ap stats i borrowed from some korean superman who said those where the perfect stats to be in those places.. so thnx again korean superman but i perfected it so i need to tryhard a little more with less hp pots for the same result Tongue

For solo grinding with these stats im mostly beeing a dick at Elrics if its not to busy there XD

with these stats im also able to play auround in valencia.
Bashims are to easy only cost 2 pots an hour
Cadry has lots of tanky mobs with CC on a bad run it taks 15 pots an hour..
Basillisks also quit easy to handel with these stats takes around 5 to 7 pots an hour.
Centaurs in my opinion. just dont do it.. its possible but takes to long and to many pots on a bad run it takes 10 pots per kill.. so not worth
Gahaz (bandits) OMG thes wankers are waaaaayyy to easy.. on a good spot there are not that many tanky ones and no violents (damn those violents)
fast clear fast spawn aaaandddd 1 pot an hour if your unlucky Xd

Skill Rotation :

Lavapiercer- groundlift - 2 auto attack - devastation- s + lmb - slugfest - Repeat...

edit by Satizfied
1. Lavapiercer - Groundlift - Slugfest - S + LMB

2. General Disarray - Slugfest - Groundlift - S + LMB
You can use Shift + F - RMB to put out some extra damage after these combos.
Try and hit space as much as possible between skills

Small trick .. you can cancel/quick use the lavapiercer to groundlift by pressing space during the charge.. doing this will instanly start groundlift without animation so you will instantly have your ironbuster ready for the 2 auto attack buff.

test

Mark of Shadows x2 (PRI/DUO) (standart (easy to get +1)

Outlaw Ring x1 (TRI) Mark of Shadows x1 (PRI/DUO) (second best (expensiv Outlaw TRI+) (recommendet since 2x TRI outlaw is really expensiv)

Outlaw Ring x2 (TRI) (BiS (expensiv needs to be TRI+ x2)

Belt of Schultz the Gladiator (DUO) (needs to be DUO+)

Tree Belt (BiS)

Ogre Ring Necklace

Scarla Necklace (“currently” BiS if DUO+)

Corrupt Ruby Necklace

Bares (TRI)

Yuria Weapon (less AP / overall more true PvP dmg / better human dmg scaling with buffs/ viable until full Boss Armor)

Kzarka Weapon (More AP / better scaling at 16+ / Must have once geared with Boss Armor)

Liverto Weapon (Only worth if you pick up +crit/+crit dmg and once you get Predatory Hunt IV otherwise wasted $$)

GEAR FARMING LOCATIONS

Taritas:

Auction House (expensiv/rare)

Serendian Shrine (decent drop rate)

Amity Vendor (easy)

Grunil:

Auction House (expensiv/rare)

Any Mediah Monster (Drop chance is different depending on monster type/area)

Amity Vendor (easy)

Witch Earring:

Hexe Sanctuary (decent drop rate/easy mobs)

Auction House (overpriced/expensiv)

Mark of Shadows:

Abandoned Monastery (decent drop rate/overfarmed/hard mobs as fresh 50+)

Auction House (overpriced/expensiv)

Tree Belt:

Dim Tree World Boss (decent drop rate/may result in XP loss if you RIP)

Treant Forest (rare drop/easy mobs)

Outlaw’s Ring:

Auction House (cheap/usually camped -> hard to get)

Elric Shrine (decent drop rate/overfarmed/mobs hit hard with night bonus unless 160+DP)

Ogre Ring (NECKLACE):

Mansha Forest and Calpheon Castle Western Forest (rare drop/hard mob as fresh 50+/overfarmed)

Auction House (overpriced/not worth buying unless fully geared with at least DUO)

Corrupt Ruby Necklace:

The reason why you should use Ruby instead of Topaz or any other +Resistance is simply because for example Knockdown wont help in GvG since most classes have several Knockdown skills. The only way to avoid getting knocked down is the right use of Evasion. While Grapple resistance is a lot more important because you usually get focused by warriors once you rush into 10 people and warrior grab is a lot worse than a simple KD. Ruby for GvG / Topaz for solo.
Auction House (okay price)

Goldsmith lvl 5 (Altinova)

Belt of Schultz the Gladiator:

Auction House (overpriced)

Manes Hideout (decent drop rate/overfarmed at daytime)

Bares Necklace:

Auction House (cheap)

Elric Shrine (good xp/overfarmed/kill priest first/never let priest’s attack you from behind with night bonus and debuff/only space for 1 Party -> optional Canyon of Corruption(best money spot))(110AP/160+DP)

52-56:

53-54:

Giant Manes (decent xp / chance for belt/only worth with 100+AP/170+DP/Always stay in meele range)
