Unbound!

Post by lessigfan on October 2nd 2011, 5:02 pm

I thought we could get started with an Unbound guide. I'm currently working towards blade of betrayal, so I'm not through reliably yet - actually I blew ~1000 APs and got through just once - but maybe others can pitch in.

Fight 1 - Frozen Slyph

I did it with summons. You need will. You also need no cpb magic, so you've got to normalize/purge or debuff yourself or both. No EAs either. I've seen aura decks with lots of cleanse work, I've heard heavy heavy banes can work, as well as some other squirrely ones, but summons are easiest IMO.

Spoiler:
Selected gear: 66/66 charms
Kyud's Analyzer x5 - self purge
Moondrop Water x5 - normalize
Blighted Woodling x5 - put negative magic cpb on you, which is great
Shield of the Whale is probably a good addision as well

Bel'Hathal x5 - ward to survive
Hathnuz Unbound x3 - ditto

Will power
Berserker Pixie x5
Soul Warden x4
Prediction x5

Damage
Pegasus x5
Corrupted Minion x5
Phoenix Offspring x5
Crimson Devil x5
Fertile Earth x5
Earth Link x4

Fight 2 - Cryotic Hulk

You need to make your ally protect and attach summons to the hulk, most come from Solace in Solitude. I haven't found a terribly reliable deck yet, but when I do, I'll update.

Fight 3 - Alhazred

I'm not yet finished farming Blade of Betrayal.

Fight 4 - Aurora

I've been meaning to start this topic for a while, thanks for getting this going.

My fight 1 gear is pretty much the same as yours, with a couple of high level summons (Dabih, jagged cleaver, joyeuse for penetration) that get this into the pretty close to 100% victories. Some people might do this with auras, but i think that come with a risk (you can't use kyud to remove the harmful auras on yourself). Only difference is i use drug inhibitor instead of moondrop water.

I took a different strategy for fight 2: i protect and use aoe auras to get my ally to buff his attacks. It is risky, but after working on it i got a gear with a decent win ratio
Gear-Unbound F2:

Gear 'unb2' By Chaofan: (67 charms)

Cascade Effect x4
Fervor's Flames x5
Lawful Will x5
Nerman's Defender x5
Divinium Glyph x5
Shield of the Whale x1
Emblem of Support x5
White Mark x3
Golem's Heart x5
Florian's Utopia x4
Nhyle's Compassion x3
Pure Elixir x3
Star Gauntlets x4
Infusion of Light x1
Moonlight Shoulderpads x5
Dragon Aegis x4
Appeasing Balm x5

Fight 3 is brutal, RNG can make this seem easy as pie or impossible.
Your best chance is using both Blade of Betrayal and Infusion of Light for an early cleanse plus lots of group auras, mostly helping alyona (two key charms- clarity of purpose extends her auras according to how many auras she has on herself, and fast freeze can get a lot of projection).
my gear for fight 3:

Circle of Hands x5
Fervor's Flames x5
Wyrm's Glare x4
Blade of Betrayal x4
Nhyle's Compassion x3
Infusion of Light x4
Emblem of Support x5
Grace of Adhara x1
Forest Medicine x5
Luminescent War Paint x2
If you have a couple of copies of Salamath's judgement, you might want to get them in here, too.

Fight 4 i don't know if i'm doing right- I mostly debuff aurora and keep myself protecting (while keeping my armor/ward as low as possible) so she won't get cleansed, and let my allies do all the damage. There is a problem with this: the fight starts with aurora stunned for a while, and you and your allies getting purged every turn while this is going. I know "a while" sounds vague, but i actually have no idea what makes her come out of her stun- seems to be one of those auras with a chance to get consummed, which means you really have no way to make her come out of that in a reliable way (which sucks- i've lost fights by exhaustion before i could begin doing damage)
Moreover: you need to play 3x Ritual of Binding here if you want to get the "Aurora" lvl 51 epic and bound lightning essence, which makes the fight quite harder.
My gear for fight 4:

Magebane Poison x5
Intimidate x5
Undermine x5
Hilt of Saiph x2
Kysin Guardian Blade x5
Kysin Frozen Estoc x5
Last Tear x2
Blightwood Blade x5
Spotlight x4
Dragon Aegis x3
Side Effect x3
Gauntlets of the Basilisk x5
Will of Tarsos x2
Moonlight Shoulderpads x5
Dusk Cape x5
Forest Medicine x2
Cascade Effect x2
Ritual of Binding x3

Well, I guess I will start posting here too, even though success is slow going.

Fight 1: Similar gear to the first, except I did use the Shield of the Whale, I had no summon-willpower charms so I used Claw of Dark Wisdom, and I included Star Gauntlet as a summon extender.

Spoiler:
Selected gear: 59/67 charms

Kyud's Analyzer x4
Moondrop Water x5
Blighted Woodling x5
Shield of the Whale x3
Hathnuz Unbound x5
Bel'Hathal x1
Soul Warden x1
Phoenix Offspring x5
Corrupted Minion x5
Pegasus x5
Crimson Devil x5
Fertile Earth x5
Star Gauntlets x2
Claws of Dark Wisdom x4
Blood Bond x3
Granite Golem x1

Fight 2: As Chaofan's gear, but without Nhyle's Compassion or Fervor's Flame. Use Strength in Humility. Would add more AoE auras if I had them. Used Way of the Recruit to survive to exhaustion.

Spoiler:
Selected gear: 65/67 charms

Lawful Will x5
Divinium Glyph x5
Strength in Humility x1
Cascade Effect x5
Star Gauntlets x3
Infusion of Light x3
Moonlight Shoulderpads x3
Appeasing Balm x5
Pure Elixir x2
Florian's Utopia x5
Nerman's Defender x5
Dragon Aegis x1
Shield of the Whale x5
Golem's Heart x4
White Mark x3
Emblem of Support x5
Way of the Recruit x5

Has anyone figured out the first charm the Sylph uses?

1
Frigid Sylph uses [Turbulent Barrier]
Frigid Sylph's armor raises to 500
Chaotic winds swirl around the Frigid Sylph, deflecting weapons and spells alike. If only you could bring calm to those winds!
Frigid Sylph is affected by Of the Wind
Of the Wind takes effect, Frigid Sylph is cleansed

That bold part looks awfully much like a hint to a hidden effect. Taking out the armor is not it, or at least not all of it.

I've made it through the first 3 fights, but am stuck at the last. The aura on the Haze just won't trigger and Aurora just won't unstun. My best guess as of now is that you need to play or discard an epic charm from the forges.

I'm assuming i need infusion of light + blade of betrayal for Unbound F3. And just when i thought I was ok on gold for a bit, 250k on 2 sets of charms. Mad

You really just need the blades, that's how I've done it, but I'm sure infusion would help too.
