Hello there, this is guide to know the party composition for velcoffer’ nest, this guide is for new players or people that want to try the raid but don’t how to start forming his party.
OK first if you want to go velco nest you need to have a good party composition, yeah yeah i know, sure you can go with a random party if you have a lot of damage but remember that having a good party is the difference in clearing the next in 40 min+ to 12min or 25min or even failure.
Now then to know whats a good composition first you need to know the base party you need to have for a good run in velco nest, here we go.
5 man party is like this
1 Semi Dps/Support
You can always swap the support for another dps but to have the max potential of your dps in the party is almost necessary to bring a support.
Now that you now the base next is what to bring, how important is every role, how hard is to gear, and the responsibility of each role.
1.1 Responsibility – The healer need to keep everyone alive and need to learn the timing to heal right since velco bosses have destruction of magic circles or can use your own heal to heal themselves, but the main things he need to do is STAY ALIVE, if your healer cant stay alive the party is pretty much doomed to fail.
1.2 Stats – The stats for a healer is usually full CON, the heals scalate using INT and SPR but that where a good support come in so you dont need to worry about that.
1.3 Build expense lvl easy/medium – Gears are not that expensive but some attributes are a little expensive so remember that.
1.3 Gears – Is not hard to gear a Healer, usually go for the max defense and CON you can get from the equips. Enhant Trasent them to +2 or 4 and get a good shield.
1.4 Classes than fill this role – In rank 10 the best healer you can get is a Cleric 3 priest 2 Kabba 3 build and the rest of the circles can be Miko/Oracle/Diev/Druid/Chapp how to build yours is for another guide and up to you.
2.1 Responsibility – Support have less responsibility than the healer but it still have a lot to do usually support clases have buffs and debuffs that need to be used to optimize your party and in some cases the buffs are the thing keeping the party alive.
2.2 Stats – Almost all the time the support need to be full SPR, this is to power your buffs and the heals of your healer using links.
2.3 Build expense lvl easy – Gears are almost the same as Healer and attributes are really cheap is one of the best classes for new players to use.
2.4 Gears – For gear, the same as the healer but try to get stats SPR/CON/INT in that priority. (if you have a lot of SPR go for CON to optimize survival, useless you are thauma).
2.5 Classes than fill this role – The best support in game right now are 2 posible build Linker-Chrono-Rune Caster and Linker-Thauma-Rune Caster how to build yours is for another guide and up to you. (in rank 10 you can pick Featherfoot 1 to debuff enemies even more).
3 Semi Support
3.1 Responsibility – Semi DPS/Support are usually some good classes that help kill the boss with buff/debuff and still have a good DPS in party so keep in mind that even if you are support you need to have good gears/dps so that you are not a dead weight for the party
3.2 Stats – Now then here is not as easy as the previous rolls you need to pick the right stats for your class, but usually it goes for max a single attribute be it dex/int/spr what to max is up to the class.
3.3 Build expense lvl Medium – Here is not easy as the other two, you need a weapon that can do damage and have def and equips so you dont get one shot by velco bosses, plus this class need attributes for damage and those are susually no cheap keep that in mind
3.4 Gears – You need to get at the very least a weapon Unique +11 trasent 6-10, for equips if you can get legend grade (solmiky) get them to at least trasent 4 if they are +11 more transcendence to compensate if they are not, if you cant get legend go for Unique Equips with good stats (primary damage stats+con) and trasent until you have 6-10k def/mdef, Remember that dps have the aggro more than a support.
3.5 Classes – Here is up to the party what to have in this role the more normal support is Falco/BM or Falco/Mergen(dont go mergen if you dont alrready have a good bow since bm do a lot more damage in velco), more roles is Enchanter of Auto Atacks or Inqui of Auto Atacks (this class can jump to dps if you have good weapon and party constitution). How to build yours is for another guide and up to you.
4.1 Responsibility – DO DAMAGE, no but seriously this class is EXPENSIVE and you can say is the role with less responsibility in the party?, his job is to kill things… yeah is sound easy but you need weapon/gears/attributes and that make it really hard, it is the hardest role to be for new player keep that in mind.
4.2 Stats – Usually go for full DEX/INT/STR, you class say it but physical damage usually go for full DEX even if they are sworman base class(this boost critical damage but if you party already have one full dex person you can go for full str if you are swordman base class, since lifeline share stats)
4.3 Build expense lvl HARD – You need a weapon with very good damage and have def and equips so you dont get one shot by velco bosses, plus this class need a lot of attributes and those are really expensive (some classes like AA Inqui have cheap attributes but need a really good weapon and party).
4.4 Gears – Need to have at the very least weapon unique + 16 Tasent 10, for equips if you can get legend grade (solmiky) get them to at least trasent 4 if they are +11 more transcendence to compensate if they are not, if you cant get legend go for Unique Equips with good stats (primary damage stats+con) and trasent until you have 8k+ def/mdef. Remember that dps have the aggro more than a support.
4.5 Classes – Here you can have a lot of clases those are usually the meta dps some of them are BM, Mergen, Warlock, Doppel, Fencer, Featherfoot, Inqui, Exo, Musketeer. How to build yours is for another guide and up to you.
And now that you know all of this is time to decide what role are you gonna play and to create your own party, you can always look for an stable party using shouts or join a guild that do velco partys, even if you dont have all the gears in the list you can compensate with party composition, but always remember this is the basic to create your party you still need to see velcoffer’s nest guides and learns boss mecanics and atacks to maximize your run.
