Gameplay Tips for Free Mode 1200
Here are some of my tips (on free mode 1200):
All traits that grant you immunities are essential. All traits that increase your attributes are very helpful if you don’t pick the conqueror trait (initial level 100.)
Your raw attack and defense stats are the biggest factors to your damage and survivability. Defense is much more important, imho.
Effective Learner doesn’t boost your damage that much. Unless, if you want to get some weapon mastery achivements, it’s a must. I always pick it anyway since I can get Weapon Master trait for free when I hit 200 in any weapon stat.
Pick Discerned Eyes, it cheap and it can guarantee your attacks to land (90-95%). Without it, well, good luck in Free mode. You can aslo boost your accuracy with a certain Passive tree, however, it’s not worth spending 1/4 of your points to boost 20% accuracy.
Action speed and Qingcong boost traits…they are very situational, it depends on your builds. Counters can play a big role to even out your mediocre action speed (Burning Sun Internal can help you with a counter build).
Most high-leveled enemies can outspeed you easily and some of them can apply debuffs (seal, poison, etc.) every turn if you don’t have immunity traits.
