Seriously, my upload speed is horrible, so quality is baaad. BUT WHATEVER. Maybe if I'm not lazy I'll actually FRAPS one of these days and then spend 5 hours on post getting things set up. Also, it gets kind of boring after the first half an hour or so.

Impressive as impressive gets.
As it is extreme as extreme gets.

Any chance to record a video with 75 pvp set and no halloween candy?

As the setup you're using is a setup very few can pull off. =D

I actually just went and did that for you. You're going to need to wait until... Whenever I wake up tomorrow before I post a link, though. I'm not going to bother trying to upload it until I go to sleep.
But, gear/talent set as a preview to know what to expect:
75 arena set
60 yellow/70 yellow 1h swords
Sniper Hunter(74 orange +50% aspd gun(I don't have a formal PVE weapon that's optimal for 75 set anymore other than armored sentinel, I'm almost always in GVG set now))
Talents: Sniping, Deathblow, Stealth Strike, Lash Out, Twin Blade Expert, Master Assassin, Brute Chain, Swift Strike

Buffs: +20 vit NPC buff from Twin Lion, nothing else.
Run time: About 3:50~ish to the same side as I did in my speedrun.

It's literally as slow as I can possibly get, though. And to be honest, at that speed/without any buffs you're probably better off running the extra 2 minutes to get to b2. The entire allure of the style of run in the original video is the fact that:
1. I can speed teleport out extremely easily, making resetting and time inbetween mob killing and reset extremely small.
2. I can make sure I have buffs the entire time I'm killing, as compared to b2 where I'll have them for maybe one side. And buffs can make a rather large difference in speed.
3. It's really rhythmic. You can zone out in the actions pretty easily.
4. While I could go full circle around b1, past the first side rooms the risk:reward is far too steep. Not to mention that you really will spend about the same time walking before you get to a new set of mobs(which are "trickier" to kill) as you would with a lover tele>reset.

So uh, while I would say the video that's (soon) to be uploaded will be good just for random tricks/etc., I wouldn't necessarily say it's the most effective way to grind as a sin without cleric buffs and a lover tele right outside.


And yeah, my speedrun is literally how I did grinding 75-80, I was going specifically for as fast as I could go, lol. So at the time I took the original video, it wasn't anything about demonstration of popular case scenario, just reduce as much time off of each run as I possibly could.

Finish what? o.o
If you mean do a full run around MSMF, read the above as to why I don't.

Double post to update.

Grindan raw-modo no buffs in 75 arena set: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ott_4SKjkY

I'll update the first post with link and info.

-edit-
Also, assuming someone is looking at this -right now,- give the video a bit of time to process the higher resolution version. 240p is lol outside of hxc grindan music.

-edit 2-
And youtube's finally done processing, so it's up in 360/480p which... Is at least recognizable as to what's going on.

Much appreciated.

It's nice to see so I can see the difference in the setups, but yea, I can see what you're talking about that you're gear is focused on the GVG set as your crit damage seems much lower in pvp set or maybe it's cause you don't have all the buffs.

Takes twice as long without the buffs, haha.

Thank you very much.
