    It really depends on your goal! I would look at the HP numbers you have and plan out your future levels to see what HP goal you wand and this how much base int you should have and when to reset out. If you need help with that, feel free to PM me and I can try to crunch the numbers for you in your situation. I am sometimes lazy so it may take up to a few days if you ask me to do it for you xD

    Your keyboard setup is very interesting.

    Is MP washing for a bucc... broken?

    I have 60 base INT, I added 1 level up AP into MP, then used a reset to -MP/+INT, and I didn't gain any MP.

    For warriors, with base 4 INT, if you add MP and -MP in the same way, you break even, but as soon as you start adding INT (beyond 10), you should start getting an extra MP after is all said and done.

    You must put 1 fresh AP into HP beforehand. Unless you did that already, idk.

    I'm not HP washing (IE, -MP/+HP). Normally to subtract an MP or an HP, you need 1 in the mix to do so, this shouldn't require that as I'm adding the MP, and then subtracting it.

    "MP gain per fresh AP put in MP (for double washing): 10 ~ 12 + (int/10 [rounded down])"
    That means that if you have 60 base int, you will get 16~18 MP. To simply break even from MP washing, you will need 50 base int. Since you have 60 int, you are only getting on average 1 more MP each level.

    I see, thats... nuts. Hm. So if I get 10 from the Ap point, +6 from washing, id still break even. 70+, is going to give reliably 1+ MP... im going to test that

    838 --> 840 --> 841 --> 842 --> 844 --> 845

    So yeah with 70 base INT im now getting at least 1 MP per wash reliably... jesus anything that isn't a warrior is such a hassle. lol.

    Thanks jackson

    If it takes 16 MP per wash, then 50 base int will break even on average since you get 10~12 (11 MP average). 70 base int would give you +2 extra int on average, so yeah it's annoying :( If you commit to double washing, you will need a decent amount of base INT.

    Can you define 'decent amount of base int'?
    Im at 122 with about 220 base + 50 from items, am I doing it right?

    At what level did you reach 30k hp?
    I got around 110 int on equips and am looking for ~18.5k hp at 135.

    Any clue how much base int that would need?
    I don't have a MW20 mule, but I do have a MW10 mule if needed.

    Hey, just want to make sure my math is right:

    Currently level 114 with 6484 HP and 3049 MP. Looking to have around 12K hp when I hit 140 (so I don't die to BF)

    Right now I need another 5516 HP to reach my goal. If I level to 140, assuming I don't do anything else, I should get an additional 325 (from advancement) + 26*55 = 1755 HP, so at 140 I should have around 8239 HP.

    At 140 I should also have 3049 + 175 (from advancement) + 26*20 = 3744 MP. The minimum MP I can have at that point will be 18*140+111 = 2631 MP, so I should have 3744-2631 = 1113 MP to wash.

    1113/16*40 = 2782 HP

    So at 140 (assuming I have 0 int on my equips) I should have 8239 + 2782 = 11021 HP?

    Yes, your math is completely correct if you didn't mistype on your calculator ! :D

    Edit: MP should be on average: 3049 + 175 (from advancement) + 26*20.5 = 3757 MP which is almost 1 extra wash/+40 hp haha

    Waiting for AP reset prices to stabilize personally to finish my 30k HP wash, glad I did all of my MP washing/INT resets prior to the AP price increase, but for now I am rolling with ~13k @ 150, safe enough for big foot soloing, although I would like to hit the anego hp threshold some time before 160

    On another note, anyone have some tips on how to get to 100 DEX without using a DEX robe? Here is my current set-up, obviously looking for the cheapest way to get to 100 with a nice 30+STR Overall

    30DEX/15STR ZHelm
    30DEX Bathrobe (Want to switch to STR Overall, best scrolled robe I have made so far is 30STR/10DEX)
    Clean Anniversary Pendant
    10 Dex Maple Leaf (or 6STR/2DEX/6Slot Leaf)
    12 DEX Earring
    3DEX/1STR (lol) Almighty Ring
    Zombie Army Ring
    15 Att SCG
    10 Att PGC
    2 Att FS (Clean lol)

    So easiest way I see to improve my current DEX is relooting/scrolling ZHelm, however I do not have a consistent group to boss with so I would likely need to keep purchasing VIP service until I manage to scroll something 35+. Same situation with Krexel Ring... I need to work up the courage to drop a chaos on my event pendant obviously, if that happens to go for the worse I will likely look into picking up a decent scrolled Deputy. Otherwise any suggestions from the more experienced Buccs?

    What level are you? The best way imo to get a few extra dex with your setup is to get on zak runs if you can. Sometimes there are no buyers or a few buyers so you can get free helm loots just for attacking.

    You can farm turkeys for the thanksgiving ring too! If you have money, then a dex eye acc, but those are pretty expensive and I wouldn’t get one for now. If you are lucky, chaosing your pendant can get you a few extra dex too.

    150 at the moment, started a new job last week and have only managed to turn in 1 set of turkey etc. so far, still possible to get 10 but it's not looking great :( Range is ~5.6k atm (7.9k w/ Heartstopper), so I shoulddd be able to get accepted into some boss runs, just don't have a steady group

    To the person asking about reaching high DEX - you might also want to consider just using that DEX overall until Horntail returns to the game. HTP+egg is a 19dex upgrade if you egg even an 8dex clean pendant, which will be more than enough. Your alternative is WS+60 on a 20DEX clean (or higher) Zakum Helmet, but unless you chaos scroll that Anniversary Scarf, an egged HTP is better and you will eventually not need that dex on your helmet since you’ll get it from your pendant.

    Pretty sure the only Buccaneers that end up needing a WS+60 Zakum Helmet are ones with godly Chaosed Anniversary Scarves. The overall is flexible, wait till you have the harder stuff to figure out first. That’s my PoV!

    Sounds like I just need to drop the chaos on the scarf already, if that doesn't go well it may even make sense to try my luck on a pilgrim for when HTP finally returns
