Revelation Online What to Expect in CBT3

Revelation Online CBT3 content guide. CBT3 will be running from Jan 19 to Feb 2. This is a work in progress.

With Revelation Online CBT3, the level cap will be increased to Level 69 and a host of new content and gearing options will open up.

General Features

Level Cap

Level Cap will be increased two fold from CBT1. It will be raised to 69 from level 49. Now this increase is quite significant because each level cap has its own content, PvP brackets, and gear progression. Two weeks will not be enough to all of the 50-59 and 60-69 content and get properly geared so you will need to just to cope and do the best you can.

There exists a mechanic to cap all the players on a server at 49,59,and 69 until sufficient number of players on that server has reached the same level. This is a gating mechanism to prevent people from getting too far ahead.

  • You need 400 players to reach Level 49 and a server that has been live for 6 days to progress beyond 49. This will also automatically unlock once a server has been live 15 days
  • You need 400 players to reach Level 59 and a server that has been live for 20 days to progress beyond 59. This will also automatically unlock once a server has been live 40 days

ro-cbt-3-guidero-cbt-3-guide-2

The CBT servers have been live for ~30 days already assuming nothing screwed up so everyone should be able to get past 49 and 59 provided there are 400 players or more that have reached those caps. Nonethless this is a good reference for OBT.

New Demonslayer Ranks

In addition to level cap increase, you will also be able to increase your Demonslayer Ranks, which allow to you to purchase materials for 50-59 gear, 60-69, and better gems.

With a 59 cap you will be able to reach Demonslayer Rank 5 and with a 69 cap you will be able to reach Demonslayer Rank 7.

Demonslayer Rank Level Requirement Merit Points Requirement Merit Points Max
1 30    
2 40 100 1000
3 45 1000 2000
4 50 2000 4000
5 55 4000 6000
6 60 6000 7000
7 65 7000 9000
8 70 9000  
9 75    
10 80    

To purchase level 50-59 gear materials you will need to reach Demonslayer Rank 4/5 and to purchase Level 60-69 gear materials you will need to reach Demonslayer rank 6/7. To reach Demonslayer Rank 6 you will need to complete the achievement in Grand Bulwark Expert mode where you don’t hit by any of the slam attacks on the last boss (it is the mechanic where you need to jump consecutively to avoid the attack). This can be done on one star expert mode easily since you can have players just stand on the platforms that spawn (one player per platform).

New Gearing Materials

With the new 59 and 69 cap there are new materials required to synthesis you gear from the Order of Guardians/Demonslayer.

  • Level 50-59 mats will come from Grand Bulwark (Normal, Hard and Expert). Normal/Hard can be done once a day for materials while Expert mode can be done twice is a week and is the source of most of your materials.
  • Level 60-69 mats will come from two sources: Mech Citadel and Misty Hollow. Mech Citadel (Normal, Hard, and Expert) and Misty Hollow Level 60 version will drop these materials.

Badge System

Badge is an equipment slot that unlocks at Level 50. You get a level 2 badge from completing the Level 55 story which is fairly decent with 2 stats. To make better quality badges, you will need to buy fragments from either the Guardian vendors or the PvP vendor.

ro-cbt-3-guide-3

You can salvage Bracteates into fragments: Level 1 yields 3 fragments, Level 2 yield 9 fragments, Level 3 yield 27 fragments and so on.

At the Guardian vendor you have a couple of choices.You can buy the basic Level 1 Badge box for 3600 Demonslayer points once a week. This only require level 50. If you have the temporary 7 day item from reaching max merit contribution for the week for your Demonslayer weekly progress bar, you can also purchase more fragments at Demonslayer Rank 4 and 6 for 1350 Demonslayer points (single fragment) or 3600 Demonslayer points (package of 3 fragments)

ro-cbt-3-guide-5ro-cbt-3-guide-4

At the PvP vendor you also have the same purchase options but if you already purchased your Level 1 box for the week from the Guardian vendor you can’t get another box.

The next part is visiting Jela Dora NPC and make your badges. It takes 3 badge fragments to make a Level 1 badge The it takes three Level 1 badgess or 9 Badge Fragments to make a Level 2. Level 3 requires 27 Badge Fragments or three Level 2 badges. This is a timegated process that can make many months to reach the highest level (5 and 6) for the gold badges.

Runes

Level 4 and above Badges allow you to place runes on them, which applies a passive effect. To get runes you will need to purchase them from Guardian or Military Vendors. They require fairly high ranks such as the Guardian vendor requiring Guardian Rank 6.This will only give you the lowest blue quality rune. To get better runes such as purple or gold runes you will need to do some weekly event and place top 3.

ro-gearing-guide-125

Each badge can only have two gold runes and a maximum of 2 identical runes. To place runes on them you click on the magnifying glass next to the badges

  • Level 4 Badge allow you to place 3 runes
  • Level 5 Badge allow you to place 4 runes
  • Level 6 Badge allow you to place 5 runes.

Talisman

Talisman is an equipment slot that unlocks at Level 59. You will need to do Tower of Pain Hardmode which is a level 59 dungeon you can do 3 times per week.

ro-cbt-3-guide-7ro-cbt-3-guide-6

Inside you will find a NPC standing outside the first boss, talk to him and get a weekly quest. This weekly quest can be only done once a week.

ro-cbt-3-guide-9

Defeat the third boss to get Doloar Leaf from the weekly quest which you can then talk to the NPC outside the dungeon (Fo Foxbush) and have him make these talisman for you.

ro-gearing-guide-148ro-cbt-3-guide-8

You will need to first convert the Doloar Leaf into a green version by using 40x Hematite. Then pick the second option when talking to the NPC and he will make a talisman for you.  The talisman you get is random in terms of quality (green, blue, purple, gold) and stats.

ro-gearing-guide-151ro-gearing-guide-150ro-gearing-guide-149

Better quality talisman have more stats you can activate once you reach a certain level. Gold quality talisman have special effects that can be activated.

ro-gearing-guide-108

The talisman have several stats, some of which are only enabled after you reach a certain level on the talisman. Take a look at the stats on this gold talisman for example.The stats inside the red box are fixed stats that cannot be changed via recasting. The stats inside the blue box are activated once you reach a certain level on the talisman and the stat you get is a random amount within the specified amount. You cannot change the type of these stats inside the blue box but you can recast to change the stat amount to be another number within the specified range.

ro-gearing-guide-110

You can level up your talisman by pressing N and click on this button to place your talisman inside. It will consume Moonlight Crystals which can be obtained by salvaging crappy talisman you get from doing Tower of Pain dungeon. There is a weekly limit on how much you Moonlight Crystals you can use per week to level up the talisman. You will get a stat increase on the talisman once it reaches the next level. Better quality talisman will be harder to level (i.e. gold talisman are harder to level than green talisman).

ro-gearing-guide-111ro-gearing-guide-113ro-gearing-guide-112

Even if you do get a crappy talisman, leveling it is not a waste as you can transfer the experience to a better talisman once you obtain one.To do this you will need to pick the 3rd option when talking to the NPC after completing Tower of Pain hardmode. The total experience of the source talisman must be higher than the destination talisman for the transfer to work. Depending on the quality difference between the source and destination talisman, you may get less levels on your destination talisman since the amount of experience to level an amulet varies with the quality.

ro-gearing-guide-115ro-gearing-guide-116

To recast the talisman, you need to visit the same NPC and pick the 4th option. This will allow you to change the value of your “activated stats” but you cannot change the type. Only stats that are already activated by reaching a certain talisman level can be recast. This process consumes the same Moonlight Crystals for upgrading your talisman.

Grand Bulwark is the dungeon for the level 50-59 bracket. It has 4 modes with the toughest mode being a 10 man raid.

ro-grand-bulwark-locationro-grand-bulwark-location-2

  • Easy (Level 50) – 2/day, doesn’t drop much so most people don’t bother with this unless for demonslayer points.
  • Normal (Level 52) – 1/day, give some 50-59 mats.
  • Hard (Level 55) – 1/day, also known as as Battle Royale on CN servers, source for 50-59 mats and skill books.

ro-tower-of-pain-locationro-tower-of-pain-location-2

  • Easy (Level 50) – 1/day. This wasn’t in the CN version, not sure what it drops.
  • Normal (Level 59) – 1/day. This replaces the Misty Hollow trial. Level 59 players should do this instead for better XP.
  • Hard (Level 60) – 3/week My.com has stated this has a level 60 entry requirement but on CN servers this has a level 59 entry requirement. This is the only place to get your Talismans.

Wiping on any boss will punish your group as all your group members will be sent to a special lava instance where you have to defeat a bunch of trash mobs before coming back to your floor.

Misty Hollow

Misty Hollow has a 10man hardmode version that drops gear material for 60-69 content. You can do this twice a week. It is much shorter than Mech Citadel and similar to the 5 man Misty Hollow with some additional bosses and mechanics. You will need to be level 60 to enter.

Mech Citadel

Mech Citadel is the main level 60-69 dungeon. It is much longer than previous dungeons and features four bosses. The long part isn’t the boss fight but the numerous trash and puzzles you have to clear to get to the bosses.
