Step 4: Hyperconductive
Go to: MOST RECENT UPGRADE STEP “Novus II” 240
Something feels wrong about this step: because it’s actually not so bad….
SO in this step you need to obtain 5x Aether Oil. How do you get Aether Oil? Well there’s only 2 ways –
Aether Oil Weekly Quest
Considered (by me) to be the sane method. You can get a free Aether Oil every week by completing the quest Gift of the Archmagus. Which requires you to complete:
- Labyrinth of the Ancients (CT)
- Syrcus Tower (ST)
- World of Darkness (WoD)
AKA the three 24-man raids from 2.0. This isn’t actually a huge time-sink.
Aether Oil via Esoterics
1800 Esoterics tomestones gets you 1 Aether Oil. You can buy this from Hismena in Idyllshire (5,5)~ish.
Keep in mind this is the kind of step that usually gets nerfed heavily down the line.
How do I get Esoterics!? Any 3.0 Dungeon, Trial, Raid or Map. (3.0!). Also carrying people through trials they have yet to complete. Oh Vanu Vanu gives ’em out too.
I don’t know what else to say about this method. It’s really simple.
Personally I’m just going to stick to the weekly quest. This step is oddly easy, I hope they aren’t just charging up the grinding energy for the next step. Or perhaps this is a way for Yoshi-P to say sorry for the previous steps shenanigans? Haha. Either way, while I feel the ease of this step is very welcome, it lacks character overall.
In any case supposedly the next step will have customizable stats just like Nexus! Let’s see!
