Medivia Knight Guide: Iron Man Project 101-225

This Medivia Knight Guide is the second life thread of my Iron Man project character, Ironbeard, on Legacy from level 101 to level 225. 

Click here for the previous life thread which covers levels 1 to 100.

This lifethread continues to cover Medivia leveling guide for knights, hunting places optimization tactics, mining guide, quests, and tasks progress such as: hunting tasks, gold and item reward tasks as well as Elf factionDwarf factionImperial factionOsaris factionOrc factionMinotaur factionGrim factionArchini factionLightbringers factionWhite Light factionOrder of the Holy Rose factionEfreet/Green Djinn faction, et cetera. 

Iron Man Concept & Rules

  • The concept is to simulate a situation in which my character is the highest level knight on the server and is at the forefront of progress.
    I earn everything on my own. It is a hardcore game play.

  • The Rules:
    • No trading with other players, with the exception of being able to sell to other players items in situations such as questlines which do not allow to trade with more than one type of NPC (e.g. Aremis / WulkanGreen/Blue Djinns faction), and then the trading is allowed only once I have completed the alternative questline, and even then, items will be traded with the other players for a lower price than the NPC price.

    • No hunting with other players unless they too are Iron Man characters of sufficiently strict rules such as my own.

    • No questing with other players with the exception of specific quests which may either technically require additional players to be involved in order to complete them (for example, The Annihilator Quest, where it is impossible to start the quest without additional 3 players) or by-design impossible to solo because they were clearly deisgned with the intention of teaming up (for example, The Plaguebringers of Abukir Quest). During quests such, I must not be "carried" (as the Medivian slang goes) by others, but instead, be the one to lead & carry the others in order to ensure the concept/idea is preserved.

    • Daily Rewards (a.k.a. Welfare points) are allowed, with the exception that I only redeem healing runes and don't stock them.

    • No reset upon death. I do not wish to be risk aversive. The opposite is true - I wish to take risks and have a hardcore experience. Therefore, death doesn't reset the character's progress.

Snapshot of EQ and Skills after hunt. Note that I fully attributed my Stonecutter's axe. It was a total of 3,500,000 gold pieces. Much easier to buy. If I'd bought it, that axe would be more like 1-1.5kk. But that's not the way of the Iron-Man 💪

Dec. 31:
Hunted Grim Adepts. Pulled 1.44kk/h with voucher+welfare boost. Yet I wasn't so close to break the respawn. Overall nice profit, but without the boost/voucher, it's not such a good spot for EXP/H as a knight :) Just a Grim Faction task.
I looted the Notes of Master Zegrath so that's good for later progress.

I was nearly level 195. I should've been more careful. I immediately entered the respawn and thought to do a pull of 3x knights while having a two handed weapon and the bloodlust stance spell. The respawn was also lured. I ended up getting pwned. Dropped dead very fast. I later came and tested them 1 by 1, it was horrible. I'll do that task later.

Ents seem to be a spot designed for Archers, given the equipment that Ents drop ( I looted Ent mask and legs during my task ) and due to their abilities. I highly do not recommend mages/druids to do this task. Very high risk of death.
For knights, only consider it once you can stand with at least 2-3 of them at the same time without risk of death while using explosion runes (and even then, probably other spots with better exp/h and/or loot).
Level 192

November 2023

Nov. 28-30:
Training some, killing some Ents. 

What makes Ents truly dangerous at my level as a knight is their high damage attacks for nearly every ability they have - melee, poison shot, life drain, wave, etc. But some of their abilities combine into a real hazard. This is the case for that boots-trap plant that locks you into a spot without being able to move unless you kill it or enough time passes + their announced marked attack comes. 
That plant-lock can also make it quite confusing which SQM the character stands on, and thus, where to heal. 
Remember: The plant is where the character is! Even if your screen shots otherwise!
Also: If your HP is sufficiently high when that plant attack happens, it's possible to use explosion rune to cancel it while also damaging the Ent.

Meteorite raid happened at night after I closed the computer, but folks didn't check all pits so I cleaned Lucindel's pit.
I am not planning to be premium most of next year, so I've decided to complete Ents task. Overall, not the right level at all. That respawn is set for Archers I suppose. Mages would easily die and Knights just waste as hell. Very risky there. I slipped up in timing of healing and paid the price. 
Not recommended task at all, but I plan to complete it although it's a complete waste.
So far looted Ent Mask (Helmet) and Ent Legs. Sold it to my guild's vault.

EQ/Skills update that folks messaged me about, interested to get an update. So here it is. 

I trained a lot more  than I expected originally.

As for the EQ, I'm now with over 3 million gold invested into this SCA. Still missing Critical Hit. I'd seriously recommend non-iron man players to purchase such items and not to attribute yourself.

I didn't track the investments over the DSM, but it's at about 300-400k invested into it so far - only gotten Superior and Vast Grip. Disappointing. However, I don't see myself getting a better armor for a very long time, so I think it's worth it.

Added another type of boots. Explorer boots. Not particularly useful (mostly +120 speed of mud). I will likely sell them to NPC soon :)

EQ/Skills Update

Nov. 10
Taken level 185 while doing Giant Spider Task (hunting task) at the best possible place to do it - Coldridge Giant Spiders cave.

Note that now is event time of 20% bonus EXP and spawn rate. So I used my fully attributed dragon lance and the bloodstance spell and I was still able to break the respawn by 10-15 seconds if I pushed hard all the way. Normally, this hunting spot can easily sustain a person with similar character using two handed weapon while pushing nicely (i.e. HMMing the giant spiders and bring some fireballs/GFBs to rapidly get rid off the many small spiders/poison spiders, unless you got energy to trap 'em/ red HP 'em etc.).

Overall, Entling task was nice. At my level, although it's still +20% spawn rate event, I had to kill a few Ents else I broke respawn.
I also explored the Ents area, very slowly since they can be dangerous. Explored the rest of the Chimpanzees respawns there.
Completed Entlings task.

Nov. 4:

Level 184, doing Entlings task

Nov. 3:
I've taken the Fetish Warriors task. I thought to do all of the Fetish~ creatures tasks. Now I'm not so sure. The respawn requires luring to optimize, walking a lot and progress is not the fastest, even though not the slowest either (esp. as now it's event time). 
Good note is their loot which is well designed. No lootbagging is required. Even though they are close to a mailbox so for once, it wouldn't be an issue to have these creatures as ones requiring lootbagging... >_>
I might return  there in the future if I feel like doing something chill. Else, I won't.

Anyway, I found some key, started looking around where to use it, ended up in some Winged Vermin and Swamp Demons cave. I nearly had myself killed when that Swamp Demon boss, Moerius, jumped at me. It's super fast and can deal quite some damage. Apparently there's a quest there. Once sold, that envenomed crossbow should recover the loss of supplies to killing this boss (no good loot from boss).

I was lucky to arrive in time to claim the meteorite pit at Arak. I had to run quite a bit from the training spot I was in until I got to the pit. I have quite a lot of meteorite ores now but far from weapon hehe
meteorite raid, arak pit

November 1st:
Quick notes: Chimpanzees task is quite chill. Thankfully, the Medivia staff fixed an issue in the respawn - the fact that these "elite" creates, the 'Furious Chimpanzees', did not count as part of the kills of the task although they respawned nearly every round. So now the task is better. 
However, I don't quite recommend it unless you want to do a chill task because unless you want to wait for the respawn, then you must be able to handle not just Entlings but also Ents in order to reach the additional tree groups where additional chimpanzees can be hunted.

Medivia Mining Guide: Tip #5

This mining guide tip builds on the mining guide tip #2, which show cased the Luana fire ants cave. It will allow you to make the best use of your time since you are already in Luana, to minimize effort and maximize the PGing of your mining skill. Boosting it as fast as possible.
  • 9 additional copper ores
  • 7 additional silver ores
  • 7 additional phenakite ores.
You'll be facing some Pandas (/shadow panda), Jaguars, possibly Cougars, Crocodile Hatchlings, and Wild Gryphons. I'd say if one can handle fire ant soldiers at the fire ant cave then they can handle Gryphons too. Just be careful if you are a low level.

The rest of the time this week I trained while working on side projects, such as moving out of this website my research and data analysis projects to (feel free to check it out and subscribe if you are interested in research, decision making, data analysis using SQL, Python & Excel as well as data story telling / visualizations. You'll find there some selected works I've made and the ability to practice on your own!).

Aug. 25:
I trained at the Gargoyles not too far from the meteorite pit of Forgula so I managed to get the meteors there. Overall, recently, meteorite raids happened at times I was able to respond fast. I already collected some 100-110 meteorite ores, which are frankly quite useless to me but maybe one day they'll be useful... I mean... I don't see myself collecting enough of them to craft a Meteorite Axe or so. It's still fun to race to them and to collect them :)

Later on I also used the welfare experience boost to do the Crocodiles hunting task at Luana. Respawn was nice overall. I do not recommend to do this task at a lower level though. 
Looted Crocodile legs (worth 7k to npc) and collected 150 crocodile skins so I got myself the crocodile doll ...

I then got the last Winter Wolf Paw that I needed in order to get the Snowfall backpack from Serena :)

I tested some strategies on this boss to increase efficiency. I've found it best to use SCA + Shield instead of the dragon lance and bloodlust spell. Increases my profit on average by about 2,000 gold per run.

I also took level 145 at the southern Arak Dragons lair respawn. The best EXP/H I was able to pull was 887K/H. But it was tough to keep it up. I was usually around 830-850/h for about 1-2 hours hunt overall.

I keep progressing with the Dragon task & there was a meteorite raid while I was away, but I got some left overs. While I mined, I advanced to mining skill 73! :)

So far, I spent 500,000 gold pieces on attributing the Stonecutter Axe. I got 2 attributes: Flawless and Vast Grip. 

A decent sum of the funds comes from continuation of doing the Normal difficulty level of Dwarf Dungeon. I do no longer use the Bloodlust Stance spell but SCA + Shield. I also reduced the amount of manas I used and just melee+HMM more. 
The best profit I made was +195% (nearly 27K profit), but it's usually around 10K or so profit per round.

Gained level and fixed a team for Annihilator quest. It was time to do it since it became ever clear I was unable to find people who would be willing to unplug their internet and get compensation, enabling me to solo the quest, nor folks who'd be willing to just heal themselves while I solo the quest. But I'm unable to go inside solo. So per my stated rules for this iron man challenge, I just went on and did it with this team, blocking it.

I used a 2 might rings I obtained and several Ice Rapiers.

So I watched Wiggy's stream and realized that I could farm gold quite easily at the Dwarf Dungeon! And I need gold as attributing items costs a lot of money.

It's quite profitable, and I got a full gold ring :) (used approx: 45-50 UH, 20 HMM, 10 Big Mana Potions, 5 GFBs).

Blood Rage Spell used with Full Dragon Lance. Might not be optimal.

Important: I do only the Normal level at the moment, evaluating strategy for profit and how profitable it is. In the future, I'll check the next tier.

I cooked many dusky fish invisibility dishes in order to do Revenant task completely chill. So I got quite a few cooking skills advancements. 
Then, on the way to the Revenant & Necromancers respawn (sadly no BoH yet), I got level 138.
I then completed the revenant task.
Additionally, later the day, I trained on Gargoyles at Forgula when Meteorite Raid happened, so I managed to claim the pit and mine some meteors. Many hours later I checked the big yehsha meteorite pit and discovered nobody mined it nor the small pit, so overall some 40 ores were mined!

I did Fire Ant Soldiers task. It was pretty fast and fun. I also finished collecting 50 Ember Coins, only to find out that I won't be able to benefit from them until I complete PoA Quest... which isn't going to be any time soon... So that kind of sucks.

I completed the Garrogat Titan Quest (a.k.a. Edron Behemoth Quest). I soloed it. It was rather easy, especially since I did not need to block more than two Titans at the same time. I even looted a Giant Sword from one of them :)
Moreover, I found out - and later reported - a bug: Ice Rapier breaks only when melee targeting a single creature, but not when using incurso. Yet I'm not sure how much of an advantage it gave me since I think the incurso spell is bugged as well --- weapon doesn't really seem to change the damage dealt.

Also adding a picture with the most up to date equipment.

Rolling in Dream Tomb. Got levels 135-137 while doing Mummies, Vampires and Slimes tasks. The Slimes task I completed outside of the tomb once I finished the mummies task. And later that day a Meteorite Raid happened and I claimed the Small Yehsha pit.

  • Got melee skill 99 as I bashed a Boar on the way back from the Orc King.
  • Completed the "Cowhide Shield Quest". No spoiler for it on Wiki. Sorry folks. But it's via a pick hole on Archiona floor (if you anyway go there, try go with someone else and then you could also do the time ring quest just for fun).
  • Completed the Cyclops' Camp Quest for the Talon, which I need to proceed with Orc Faction.
  • Completed the Spider Silk Armor Quest at Desolated Lands too. It's called the "Pitfall Quest".

Got level 130 during dream tomb (floor -3) hunt, working on the 2,000 mummies kills task (lightbringer faction) and combining it with the Crypt Shamblers hunting task, which I finished. Then I took the Vampires hunting task
It's quite a lovely spot with rather easily getting 800k/h.

I later obtained level 131 while finishing the Cyc warriors task, and redeemed the EXP reward for it. That noted, I'm unlikely to make progress with this faction in the soon time since the next missions require to face Lightbringer Heroes, which are very strong.

I completed the Green Djinn Faction Quest. Finally I was high level enough to handle so many Marids and Blue Djinns at once. I'll now be able to sell items to them :) 
I then also completed the first mission of the Lightbringers Faction so I'll finally have the 2,000 mummies task!

Jul. 5:
- Crafted Heavy Halberd after finishing to mine Carnotite ores & Heliodor ores. Surely overpriced to craft it but it is what it is as an iron man (each Heliodor bar goes for about 50k on Legacy nowadays).
- Got mining 71!
- Started Emperor Scorpion task. This Arak-Lucindel cave, above Swamp Demons, seems very nice! I got up to 700k EXP/hour with boost, but without 100% pushing hard. 
Also, I do not recommend the Emperor Scorpion cave at Yehsha. It's just bad. Sadly, respawn was taken at Luana when I wanted  to explore it so I can't compare the Luana cave and Arak-Lucindel one.

Meteorite raid early on! I managed to get first to the Garrogat pit but it was clear I'd die if I levitate down. So I figured I could only head to the Big Yehsha pit and try my luck mining there for 1 meteorite ore. I managed to get there first! I went in, killed 3-4 fleshies 1 by 1, and mined a single ore. That's precisely what I need to start the Archini Faction!

Then I went to finish the Cave Trolls task and get my Steel Boots
I got level 123 & completed the task :)
  • Please note that Medivia had an update which changed the experience table/formula, as well as vocation and item changes. Thus the jump from level 110 to level 122. For the update announcement, click here.

July 1st:
Started Cave Trolls task. The reward is Steel Boots. I'd like to upgrade my equipment. I consulted with Charles (a.k.a. Charles Canter) and he suggested the Thoris respawn (on the way to the Blue Wyverns) is somewhat better. I walked the long way the first time, got key 9040, so next hunts I could use the shorter way.

Medivia Mining Guide: Tip #3

For the previous two medivia mining tips, see the previous lifethread.

This path is a natural path to extend the tip #1 route for whoever is able to properly handle Gryphons.

Possibly two rocks of gold ore, and many copper and silver ores.

Killed Fonia. Got crystal necklace :( & I suicided as a penalty for doing a mistake: I got so used to a door at Abukir being open that I forgot it's a quest door. Got to have the 7000 key to open it. The suicide was a penalty for this violation :( I cannot possibly expect to do this quest until I'm level 200-220 or so.

  • Killed the first Alpha Wolf (Imperial Faction task) since I finally had the Elven bow to make progress at this faction. 
  • Touched the Rainbow Magic Tree at Desolated Lands.
  • Taken level 110 as I was finishing the Elephant EXP Task. Also obtained Elephant backpack - remember that it's important to skin them for profit! :)
    p.s. I do not recommend doing this task until much higher level. Exp/h wasn't great, loot isn't so great although profitable.

I then boosted, completing Jaguar task and proceeding to Elephant task, where I have taken level 109.

Note: While I recommend doing the Jaguar task at this level, the Elephant task isn't nice at this level. Better take it at higher level when it can be done more effectively and more chill.

Herk (Alberico) was hunting at Titans and told me Heliodor respawned. I went there to mine it for him since he doesn't have the mining skill for it. I was a 'meat shield' and got level because I hit the cyclopses :) This wasn't a party hunt or so!

Also, finally looted Elven Bow - needed for the Imperial Faction - while progressing Orc Faction.
