Max Level In 5 Hours & How To Beat The Mirror
This isn't a secret and isn't an exploit. You can go from any level to max
(20), by beating your mirror self in Augury Rock. It has been documented as
being done by as low as a level 3. All you really need is a skill that causes
the mirror to damage itself and the ability to dodge arrows. Here are the steps:
1. Get out presearing by getting a secondary profession and then letting Rurik
and the henchies clear out the Grawl in the caves.
2. Get a group of friends or guild mates with level 20 characters, preferably
with run buffs.
3. Group runs you from Ascalon City to Sanctum Cay. (Ascalon -> Yaks bend ->
bergen hot springs -> temple of the ages -> fishermans haven -> sanctum cay)
4. Group does Sanctum Cay mission. Even if you die if the party wins you get
credit, so either die early and don't get rezzed or just stay by the entrance.
5. Group does the three desrt missions, Elona's Reach, Thirsty River, and Dunes
6. Group runs to Augury Rock.
7. You will be about level 3 by this time, talk to the sage and get him to open
8. Beat your mirror self, instant level 20!
To beat your mirror you can either bring skills that will hurt him for attacking
like Empathy or Price of Failure. Also, skils like Retribution that return
damage to him plus HoT (Healing Breeze) can work but bring Scourge Healing and
Heal Party but don't use Heal Party. Make sure that you set you attributes to
maximize the damage he does to himself.
Once you enter the mountain, skip the cinematic, if you want to see it you can
watch it and then try, but the extra time from skipping helps so if you don't
beat him the first time try that. Then turn 180 degrees toward the opening. Move
in that direction until you can go up on one of the ramps along the wall. I,
normally use the left one but either should work fine. Cast Empathy or Price of
Failure etc on the mirror and then move up the ramp to give your self a little
distance. Don't move too far or he will try and follow, you want him below you
at all times. Once he starts attacking (he will use a bow no matter what you use
or have skills in) watch him draw back the bow and wait about 1/2 a second and
then move sideways. This will cause you to dodge the arrow while he takes damage
from Empathy or Price of Failure. If you have a blind skill it also works well
with PoF or Empathy and you don't have to dodge but don't bring any condition
removal. Once you do it a few times you will get the timing of dodging his
arrows and it gets to be pretty easy. I beat him with a level 15 in less than a
minute Smile You can also just dodge his arrow and use a newbie wand to kill him
but that takes ~10 minutes and a lot more arrow dodges.
