[The iToS Weekly Round-up]
Welcome to your weekly dose of info round-up on Guild Territory Wars, Boruta Raids and Weekly Boss Raids on every server! In here, I will be doing on covering on all servers, Klaipeda, Fedimian, Telsiai, Silute and any new happenings in Tree of Savior every week on Monday/Tuesday!
[December Week 2, 2020]
Its been almost a month since the new updates with Tel Harsha and Luciferie Accessories are out, so players and guilds with enough resources to get Karaliene/Luciferie Accessories faster are expected to still be ahead of the rankings this early on. There won’t be any new class balance changes happening anytime soon, so there’s expected to be no change in the meta across the board.
The Fan Art Festival themed “Christmas of Class Master” has closed last week and votes are closing on December 17, 2020, so vote for your favorite Arts that you want to see in your loading screens now! IMC has also started taking action against players who were found abusing the “Severty Bug” that’s been making the rounds on forums for some time. Due to that, there may be changes in certain rankings if such players are involved in abusing the bug. Other than that, excitement currently fills the week for players across all servers due to a major content update IMC has dropped on the KTest and KToS servers. Along with the X64 BIT and DX11 updates IMC already implemented on KToS, many exciting things are to come in our future patches!
IMC has finally unveiled their latest major update, [EP 13: Scars of Fate], containing many new content updates, gears, level cap, and more along with 2 new classes, Arquebusier and Clown for the Archer and Scout trees respectively! While new things are exciting, it does bring into question that IMC released the new patch in KTest for only 1-2 day of testing before bringing it to KToS halfway through the week, and the KToS player base will have no choice but to adapt to a potentially bugged and unbalanced update quickly to stay up on top of their respective content and rankings.
With the new major update, KToS may be in for a rough week, with having to adjust with both a new major patch and a new Weekly Boss Raid, Lucia. Find out more at KToS’s weekly report, 47th Weekly Boss: Link.

[GTW and Boruta Raid]
[Guild Territory Wars]
Guild Territory War remains boring in the lands of Telsiai with no change at all as YN of Telsiai maintains their hold over two territories, including Genar Field (Klaipeda). However, chaos ensues in the 3 other servers as guilds managed to take or lose their holds over the Champion’s League maps.
In Klaipeda, Impetus shows dominance, taking 2 territories including Genar Field (Klaipeda) and FullMoonCafe maintains their hold over Aqueduct Bridge Area (Fedimian), while Yoruzuya has managed to take Infinity’s place as the winner of Baron Allerno (Orsha). Melody no longer holds a map as Alpha takes over their spot in Nuoridin Falls, and Impetus has conquered the Sventimas Exile territory previously held by Yorozuya.
In Fedimian, CarpeDiev came out of left field taking two territories including taking Genar Field (Klaipeda) from Maid Cafe, from not having a territory last week. The previously unsiezed Aqueduct Bridge Area (Fedimian) has also been taken by EriLayne, and the last Champion’s League map, Baron Allerno (Orsha), was taken by Eternity. Nuoridin Falls has been taken over by CarpeDiev, previously held by EriLayne as they moved up to a Champion’s League map.
In Silute, Paradise and Skyline, who holds Genar Field (Klaipeda) and Aqueduct Bridge Area (Fedimian) respectively, has switched hold over their territories, perhaps a sign of an ongoing war between the two guilds. In the midst of the chaos, Australe has kicked LIMIT out to take their territory, Baron Allerno (Orsha), and LIMIT scrambles to take over Sventimas Exile, previously held by FireEmblem. Aqua has also stepped up their game, taking 2 Challenger maps, one previously held by Australe.
- Baron Allerno (Orsha): Yorozuya (Infinity previously)
- Nuoridin Falls: Alpha (Melody previously)
- Sventimas Exile: Impetus (Yorozuya previously)
- Genar Field (Klaipeda): CarpeDiev (Maid Cafe previously)
- Aqueduct Bridge Area: EriLayne (None previously)
- Baron Allerno (Orsha): Maid Cafe (Eternity previously)
- Nuoridin Falls: CarpeDiev (EriLayne previously)
- Genar Field (Klaipeda): Skyline (Paradise previously)
- Aqueduct Bridge Area (Fedimian): Paradise (Skyline previously)
- Baron Allerno (Orsha): Australe (LIMIT previously)
- Nuoridin Falls: Aqua (Australe previously)
- Sventimas Exile: LIMIT (FireEmblem previously)
2 more guilds, Impetus of Klaipeda and Skyline of Silute have joined in the fray of guilds to break through the 10 minute mark, while many upsets have occurred in various servers, perhaps due to the usual IMC servers, or perhaps a showing of the competitiveness in their various servers.
No change is happening in Telsiai and Fedimian with YN of Telsiai and Maid Cafe of Fedimian having the fastest Boruta Raid clear times of their respective servers. With that said, YN of Telsiai has once again cleared Boruta Raid with the fastest time this week at 8 minutes 59 seconds. Meanwhile, Impetus and FullMoonCafe of Klaipeda has managed to overtake Melody of Klaipeda and Infinity of Klaipeda seems absent this week. In Silute, many changes are happening as Paradise of Silute slides down the rankings below Skyline, Australe and LIMIT of Silute, Skyline of Silute taking first place, and the addition of 3 more guilds, LIMIT, Aqua and FireEmblem in the Boruta Raid rankings, show an intense competition in the works.
[37th Weekly Boss Raid Results]
The 37th Weekly Boss’s traits benefit DPS builds with Magic/Lightning/Fire/Poison/Pierce/Arrow/Pistol damage, traits that many meta class builds can shine and take advantageous of. In the midst of all these meta builds, MiyukiSAMA of Telsiai has managed to come out on top dealing the highest damage across all class trees and servers, dealing 15.8 B damage with a Shadowmancer | Featherfoot | Taoist! It should also be of note that all 5 top WBR rankers of the respective class trees all come from the same guild, YN of Telsiai, a show of strength by YN and the server, Telsiai.
- Top Swordsman Build:
- -Asuna [Telsiai], Fencer | Matador | Barbarian, 14.9 B
- Top Wizard Build:
- MiyukiSAMA [Telsiai], Shadowmancer | Featherfoot | Taoist, 15.8 B
- Top Archer Build:
- DestinedWing [Telsiai], Mergen | Ranger | Appraiser, 13.7 B
- Top Cleric Build:
- ArchKnight [Telsiai], Plague Doctor | Miko | Druid, 10.6 B
- Top Scout Build:
- Tyhz [Telsiai], Schwarzer Reiter | Enchanter | Assassin, 7.7 B
It is no surprise that a boss weak to Pierce top meta build specializing in Pierce damage would result in some impressive numbers favoring such a build, as -Asuna of Telsiai holds the top WBR rank for swordsmen on all servers, dealing 14.9 B with a Fencer | Matador | Barbarian. The build has shown consistently stellar DPS with top swordsmen rankers from all servers using it, and will likely continue doing so, though there are plans by IMC to tweak those down in future, casting the build into a little doubt down the line.
With a boss weaker to Magic and Lightning damage, a build specializing in bossing like Shadowmancer | Featherfoot | Taoist is bound to do well as MiyukiSAMA of Telsiai has not only managed to take top spot for wizards, but also top spot for damage on all class trees and servers with 15.8 B damage. Every top wizard ranker on all servers also run the same build, though the new EP13 content patch currently in KToS servers made a major rework on Wizards including Taoist, so Taoist might have to be replaced from the build in future.
The Mergen | Ranger | Appraiser that topped the archer ranks also shows its power in this Arrow-weak boss, as DestinedWing of Telsiai takes the top archer spot on all 4 servers with 13.7 B dealt. A top meta DPS build with party DPS support via Appraiser, this build proves its usefulness in both party play and solo play. All top archer rankers on all 4 servers run the same build.
This week sees the rising popularity of Plague Doctor builds as a Magic DPS option with various utilities and an excellent Vaivora weapon, and ArchKnight of Telsiai has come out on top with a Plague Doctor | Miko | Druid build to deal 10.6 B damage on this Magic-weak boss. There have been doubts if Plague Doctor’s Vaivora can make its bossing ability viable, and I believe this is a strong case for Plague Doctor. Every top cleric ranker on each server ran different builds, with Klaipeda running a Plague Doctor | Krivis | Druid build, Fedimian with a Crusader | Druid | Miko build and Silute with a Exorcist | Miko | Druid build.
Pistol Scouts hold the lead once again with the Pistol damage advantage on this week’s boss as Tyhz of Telsiai once again holds the top scout spot dealing 7.7 B damage with a Schwarzer Reiter | Enchanter | Assassin build. While Klaipeda, Telsiai and Silute ran the same Schwarzer Reiter build, Fedimian is still running the Rangda | Linker | Assassin build.
