Okay game, you got my attention with the 110 gems reward. I guess it’s worth optimizing how to efficiently complete this quest.
Quest Progression Conditions
To advance the PULL counter, the words “PULL” must appear in text after an ability has been used or triggered, or the enemy must be killed by the PULL attack damage. Using abilities or activating a PULL ability on an immune target will also advance the counter.
Even though kills are counted, if we want to farm pulls, we want to keep our mark alive. This means you don’t necessarily want your best gear equipped.
Moreover, a character being pulled does not need to be physically moved if there is an obstacle preventing the character from being pulled to a closer space. Because the text appears, you progress your quest counter.
Character equipment set up
Warlock: upgraded epic weapon, best armor, worst other gear.
Barbarian: upgraded rare skull, upgraded rare headdress, best armor, worst other gear.
Bard: upgraded rare boots, epic lute, best armor, worst other gear.
Cleric: full spot heal set up.
Monster to pull
Look for rooms where you can leave a single monster to repeatedly pull for minimal damage without harm to your party.
Gelatinous ooze for lower levels should suffice, but I really like the Estate Sentries from the Lightbringer Estates because they have permanent regeneration.
Explore mode is ideal for free at will access, and guaranteed monster types. But many people will have cleared it already. Just spend the entry fee on challenges with the expectation of not beating all 3 bosses for whatever challenge.
My set up
In this screenshot, I am farming pulls from Estate Sentry by:
- attacking with my Warlock’s basic attack, * moving my Bard to trigger her movement ability, and
- activating the Barbarian’s skull every other turn (or passes/taunts) to get another pull action, while
- healing with the Cleric.
I average about 1.5 pulls per round with this setup.
The Estate Sentry just heals up damage and if I damage him too fast, I’ll skip my Warlock’s basic attack to give the Sentry a breather.
The Sentry occasionally can get lucky with criticals in her flurry of attacks and just one-shot Raika. To minimize this possibility, I recommend dominating the Sentry to deny attacks (while they can still regain precious HP).
Alternatively, if you have cleared Lightbringer Estate, you can use this nifty trick by @gpinsky1313.
