I will make it very simple:
c1 or c2 -> priest 2 -> anything
Pelt 2 or Pelt 3 -> anything
Anything -> Thaum3 -> Anything
Anything -> Linker3 -> Anything
Anything that actually does damage -> Falc3
Anything that you don’t swap weapons -> Musk3
Literally anything with a minimal level of weapon investment (+11 Primus/Masi 350-380, stage 5+)
Please stop doing ranger musket builds. Your one job is sniper’s serenity and if your uptime is sub 100%, you are a waste of a slot.
Please stop doing not-thaum3 builds. Thaum3s are so abundant, you are a waste of a slot unless you are also providing damage–which many thaum1-2 builds can do just fine, but then get in the habit of not overwriting good thaum3 buffs with your garbage ones.
Please stop doing 0 damage “I’m going to buff and afk for the next 5-10 minutes of this boss fight” builds, you are a waste of a slot. (This includes 0 damage falc3 builds).
Ignore every piece of the last bit of advice if your build is designed around other things, and you just want to do Velco and are willing to build a group around it. It’s actually very easy.
Some things which indicate your group is probably going to fail:
“LF Kabba3 only” -Your DPS’s armor is terrible and they’re gonna spend a lot of time dead and blame the healer for being oneshot twice in a row through revive.
“LF linker3/thaum3 only” -“We need this buff class but we’re going to make it as hard as possible for you to keep lifeline up and then get really mad when we end up killing Velco 55 minutes in because you do no damage”
“We need someone with 10k patk or matk” -We have no idea what we’re doing and need someone to carry us
Some underloved class builds that make runs 10-15 minutes:
Piper 3 who knows what they’re doing
Literally any DPS class with a +16 t10 weapon
