Becoming Invincible with Memoirs of a Mercenary (Possible Spoilers)

#1Bofur22Posted 4/30/2009 12:10:37 AM
I'm level 160 and getting ready for the stupid Queen on stupid Infinity. But I hate farming Dragon Fangs. I need to know the bare minimum for becoming invincible in this game.

I know it's going to take a long time, but I don't want to waste more time than I have to. What's the minimum amount of Memoirs I need before I can't die?

Thanks

I'm just going to assume that you're not also going for Compulsive.

I'd say about 20 would be more than enough for Capell. You may want to get double that, around 40 or so and allocate it to your other party members.

Make sure you get armour or accessories that prevent magic - Hydra armour, being crafted by Ed, is the one I'm thinking of. There are others though.

I am going for compulsive. I'm almost done with it... The majority of the stuff I'm missing is crafted drums and batons, etc.

I can't wait to do Komachi's weapons =\

But thanks for the tip. Hopefully I'll have the Queen dead tonight. >=D

Then onto filthy rich, and finally compulsive for 1000GS.

You can always die if you keep getting hit.
If you want to be "invincible", you need HP Regen %1 or %3.
The amount of HP you must regen should be equal or greater to than the game's strongest attack, which is Accused, used by the secret boss. This can do around 10 million. This should be your starting point.

Assuming your HP Regen is 1%, then it turns into a simple math equation. If 10 million is 1%, then 100% should be... 1,000,000,000. 1 Billion. Since the absolute max HP is 2,199,000,000 (just over 2 Billion), then you would need to be at level 255 to start, then use 60 memoirs to truly heal for more damage then is dealt to you.

Granted, she doesn't deal constant damage using the same attack, so we can half that, so around 45 memoirs at level 255, or 50 memoirs at level 180up would still be "almost" invincible. If you truly wants to set the controller down and walk away from the battle, knowing that in a week, you could come back and be alive, you would have to max stats.

Do remember, if you start using Memoirs at a lower level, you don't get the gain in HP that you would get if you started at a higher level. There can be a huge difference.

Thanks for the info. I have 3%HP Regen, so I should only need about 450,000,000HP right? How many books does that take? I have 40,000HP right now...

Well, lets do some math.

52 = 436,845,506 * 120% = 524,214,607

You need 52 Memoirs of Merc. at your current HP level to be over 450,000,000.
And you might as well do 10 more after that to hit your max HP. :)

I only had enough materials to get 36, so I'm going to try that first, and see where it gets me. I still have to get the Dragon Fangs though.. Awesome.

Achievement Unlocked: Seraphic Gatekeeper - 1G

You know, it sucks... There was never a time when all of us would have died. I basically did all that for nothing. =(

Oh well. I ended up being 191 with 72,000HP when I used my 37 Memoirs. Thanks for all of your help.

You should have only needed 5 memoirs for that much HP, not 37.
