What kind of stats will you recommend to do decently well in Whirlpool. My party (3 people btw) cannot even get past floor 1. Q_Q
But still...even if we can get 5 people, the 5 stacks of debuff hurts so bad and even if we wait it out, we just get hit again. Rejunvnation mantra doesnt seem to debuff it.
OTL;;In short. I dont think I know what I was doing.
Ehh I dunno if it's really about stats, I think it's mostly gear + overleveling. Ice armor, the frozen skull trophy from king fish if you can get it, lvl 60+ stuff.
There aren't really "floors," it's a single room and groups of things just spawn one after the other. So you might've gotten further than you thought.
This dungeon also has the addition of environmental hazards (whirlwinds that'll throw you up in the air, kind of like the bombs in sky tower 2F). Also, some of the monsters have a buff that makes them resistant to stun.
If any of your party members have any lag at all, it will probably screw them over. The monster and environmental aoes make it so that everyone has to be moving at pretty much all times, and with lag it is extremely easy to think that you're dodging an aoe when you're walking into another or the aoe actually already hit you by the time you actually see the lines. That sort of thing happened to me a lot since the temp fix for the sorc skill freezes didn't work for me and I've had horrendous lag since the patch.
On top of the death penalty debuffs, Nazrudin has 2 really hard to dodge AOE debuffs that are terrible. One is -50% damage, and the other is -20% DEF with a 2k DOT. I think they might stack too. These should be removable with rejuvenation mantra, unlike the death penalty one. A few bards have also reported an issue where their ballad skill won't cast on themselves (something I also heard in sky tower 7F). I have NO idea what causes this, I assume it's some kind of debuff.
