Sig's Ascension Guides (Avoid All Lightning!)

Post by Signature » Thu Sep 04, 2014 5:20 pm

Hey everyone,

Been seeing alot of questions lately on how to do Ascensions properly. There are many guides on YT but none seem to explain how to manipulate the lightning to crash wherever you want it to, which is the key to making these fights ridiculously easy.

I will post a specific guide to each boss as I do my current hunt, and upload them here. The first guide is Primus, which will show how to manipulate the lightning for each boss you encounter.

Make sure to change the video quality to 1080p when you watch the videos, makes everything much more clear



Primus

Secundus

Tertius

Quartus

Quintus

Sextus

Hopefully I explained the basic mechanics well enough. I do know I didn't explain everything (like how to efficiently dodge lightning while boxed in for Quintus), but it's really hard to explain certain strategies. Most of them come with practice really.


Also a bonus video of the reward given to me for making these guides today:

A nice 73m profit :D

It really is that easy when you get the mechanic down, almost becomes boring lol.

The bow I'm using is Noxious Bow.


Tertius guide is having some quality issues so might not get it up right away.

The amount of times I've heard that one xD

Had the Vorago team that I killed for my Comp back ask to record me saying certain things because they wanted to record my voice too. Was... A bit weird lol.


All guides are now posted + a bonus video at the end of the spoils of making these guides :D
