Albeit im a fairly older user, I can still use help! I've never been amazing with builds, but I've finished the map thus far so...accomplishment! Can you 'bestow' your knowledge on party builds for the higher levels? :) *grabs pen and paper*

Hello Mousebird, and welcome to Sylestia!

That is okay! Your account is currently level 18, which means that you only have level 18 and lower pets. You can build your party with pets of any level, but make sure that they are close together. The enemies that you encounter will not be any higher level than your highest pet, so if you have one level 50 pet and two level 10 pets, you will be encountering level 50 enemies! The best way to get around this is to create a battle party of pets with similar levels.

Let me know if that doesn't make any sense! c:
thanks Kaufee

I am glad I read this. I was planning on getting a high level per to make mincemeat out of a certain enemy but now I see that if I do that then the enemy will be at the same level as my strongest pet.

So if I use low level pets then the boss should be low level too?

Not necessarily, LonelyRyu.... some cases yes, some cases no. For example, if I go thru Nightfall Bandit Dungeon, those are all the same level (approximately 25ish). Even though mine are level 60. This happens in all the storyline places, ie: Fungus Grove, Trollsblight Cavern and the places you probably have been.

But, if you are doing the dynamic events, the ones that come every 3hrs with the yellow banners "help save Eisor's Haven", or "fungus grove" or something like that.... those enemies are approximately the same level as your pets. Also, fest zones are like this, you will battle enemies close to your level.

If you have anymore questions, I will try to help! :)

Redacact, sorry for such a late reply! I am really forgetful. D:

The answer to your question somewhat depends on what you are battling. I can split this into two different types of battles, either regular battles or boss battles.

Regular battles are battles with normal wild sylesti or bandits. Bandits are somewhat stronger than wild sylesties, from my experience, but are essentially the same. For these fights, I use the build described in this thread. It's simple and clears enemies quickly. As long as you can keep your tank up, your other pets should essentially never die. If I had to suggest a specific build it would be an earth tank, or other tank as long as it can survive fairly well, and two fire pets, fire because at max level and profession points becomes a multi-target spell that helps to kill more enemies at a time.

For boss battles things get a little more complicated. Boss battles in the festival, exploration, and dungeon battles are basically the same as regular battles, but these bosses are simply a lot stronger and without proper gear for your pets you won't be able to defeat them. The other thing that makes them special and can influence your build is their mechanics--basically any special behavior they have. All of the arena battles are these types of battles and each one needs to be handled in a different way. Also, a pet dying in arena is almost always a lost battle, so health is much more important than regular battles. From my personal experience in the arena the best builds are actually using hybrid specs for your entire party, essentially using a mostly tank/some damage pet and two mostly damage/some tank pets. This way they other pets in the party can step in to tank in the case that your tank's health gets VERY low.

I'm pretty tired right now but if people want me to do an arena guide I totally will but I've only beaten the entire level 25 arena, not any of the level 50, yet. And if you need any clarification please ask, this is kind of confusing. xD

LonelyRyu, welcome to Sylestia! I'm always excited to help out new players and I'm thrilled that this guide helped you, as that was exactly it's purpose! :D

The enemies that you find and fight in the festival zone are always going to be based on your level. The enemies that you find can be as high as any pet in your party, and are always going to scale to your party. It's okay to use pets that are close in level but not identical, but don't use pets that are more than a couple levels apart.

The other areas on the website, the exploration zone, are going to be a static level that is specific to their area. The festival zone is the only zone that scales to user level.

If you have any other questions let me know! :D

thanks Kaufee, your instructions were detailed and fantastic. Now I'm not being beaten so much anymore and I will try your tips on the arena next :)

How do you get other pets into the party? I went to the party page and it will only allow me to use I slot.

You have to buy more party slots from the town.

In the plaza, there should be a trainer that you can buy a party slot from. You'll get a 3rd one when you're able to go to Saerielle and buy it there.
