Pupper master stance
« on: April 28, 2017, 07:36:17 am »
Hello,

Puppet master stance uses  Strange Cogwheel, Strange Spring and Strange Clock Equipment. Only place to get these materials at semi decent regular drop is in Torche mansion Annex, drop rate is still pretty low...about 1/10 of Otite. If you afk there all day, you maybe get 100 or each. Cath can summon several dolls and they only last 480 sec and die pretty easy to aoe.  All in all, Puppet master stance now is one of most annoying and expensive stances to use. One component can be bought in MM for 50k now.........

Comparing that to Viki's Trance robo, we see Trance Robo has longer summon times, several ways of getting Energy cores, ,more durable summons and smaller material requirements for summon. You get 1000 energy cores for 1000 Otite + 1 WGB, which means about 10x more summons in Trance Robo than in Puppet master stance.
There are even better ways to make Energy cores from Mustang cores. Drop rate for Mustang cores in Ruina de Memoria is better than drop rate of Strange XXX in Anes. As we can trade 50 Mustang cores + 1WGB for 1000 Energy cores, this  means summoning requirements in Trance robo is about 20x (1000/50) smaller.

All in all, Puppet master summon material requirement really needs to be updated, like Trance robo's was when they introduced Viki's Strange Hut laboratory.

Suggestion:
- reduce needed materials for doll summoning (1 type of item or at least only one item used for one doll).
- increase drop rate of summoning materials or/and provide additional ways to gain them.
- increase summon time duration to 600 sec.

Kind Regards,
Rusalky

Small correction: you get 500 Energy Cores from 1000 Otite + 1 WGB, not 1000.
No one forces you to use Cath. Just keep in mind: Cath surpasses Viki in terms of dps power, but Viki's summons are more tanky.

That aside, yes, it would be cool to reduce the summon requirements as well as the increased summon time. For the drop rate... I think, it's okay as it is. Maybe you need faster kills to increase the drop just from quantity of killed mobs, or the levels of the chars you used to farm them were too high.

I rarely see anyone using Puppet Master these days.  :(  Then again a change in material requirement would benefit people who want to use her stance.  If that does change I would start using her since most players have +7ed Vigilar Controllers.  That would benefit the use of Puppet Master stance.
