New player here - I started in Sept. on what I think was the first day of the Sun Wukong 7 day login reward. Through dumb luck and paying for Myth shards when they first got announced, I have Arbais, Siegfrund and spent a zillions hours fusing Mikage. It's been a long time since I gamed (think EQ2 lol), but I understand powerleveling and silver farming well enough. My issue is no Arbiter yet - I managed to get to Gold V arena, but can't break through to affinity bonus 9. Trying to make my speed team I've got Arbais to base speed of 347, and Mikage to 289. That's enough to have the two of them lead off against most Arbiter lead teams.
From there, I'm not clear on what to do next. I have Ukko, , Gnut, Warlord, Glisnea, Sun W, Siegfrund, Elva, Skullcrown, Aniri, Fenax, Zavia, big'Un, Genbo, Brosni, Sir Nic.
I've tried Skullcrown, fenax, and Genbo as fast attackers, but always get creamed. similarly, Ukko and elva don't seem much help.
In terms of damage, by far and way my highest damage dealer is Siegfrund, but having him as #4 behind arbais, Mikage and Warlord doesn't do so well. I thought with Mikage upping ATK and C. DMG, and Warlord weakening he would crit and take another turn, for a fast battle. his atk is almost 8000, c rate 100 and c dmg 290....but he acts like a glass cannon. Is it because his speed sucks down at 140 ish? The same setup with Sun W as #4 seems to do better. He's faster in the 190's, but less ATK and much less C DMG.
I'm working with primarily speed, Percep, Savage, Immortal, Cruel, Relent, Retal, Divine Crit, Divine speed gear. I can 100M/key Demon, but I suck at Hydra.....maybe 10-12M/key, so just a few peices of Stoneskin so far.
I'm pretty lost on next steps. I try optimising Champs, but the ones I use all want the same stuff on the optimiser....make one better and another gets worse. And it's back to silver farming to be able to swap gear lol.
If you'll undulge my very limited knowledge so far, any advice would be appreciated. TYIA
