    Hello, I've been wanting to create a new character for awhile, however due to my indecisiveness, I did not start any.

    After some thoughts, I've decided to create a paladin which will use only a little NX. Since its a low-NX paladin, might as well create a new account on it, and play it as if its my first character. There ain't many journals that focuses on the practicality of lightly-washed warriors. Is it because its not as practical as it seems, or everyone just washes to 30k anyways due to how easy it is? Perhaps this journal will be great for figuring it out if light-washed are still practical or no. Tbh, I'm also inspired by Ainz's washing-doable-journal and Xdra's unwashed paladin, hence this journal.

    Well, its always easy to start something out, but will I finish it? :/

    Also the motivation for creating this character, if anyone's interested:
    The main motivation for me right now is due to only having one bossing level character, a lvl 160 Hero at this time of writing. This caused me some issues where I had to think about who I go bossing with - for eg, If I had a guild zak run today, I won't be ablt to join a random afk run which may earn me some good mesos. Having a second character gives me more freedom on how many times I can go a content for, and no I don't own any mage character so using them is out of the question.

    Due to gtop being wonky, I'm so far only able to vote on two accounts - one on my main account (with a lvl 160 Hero) and another on an alt where I prepare for a range char, if I decided to make one. Thus I do not want to spend a huge amount of NX on this character.

    Screenshot of my diceroll:
    [​IMG]

    Screenshot of starting with 0 NX:

    Main Goals for NotHelpful:
    - 17k HP by lvl 140-150
    - Have some decent gears I guess? Including but not limited to:
    - 120+ Claymore
    - 107+ RK or 125+ Sparta w/ 14+ wa shield
    - 27+ Dex Rav/Scar/Zak
    - 3-5+ wa PGC/BFC, with STR scrolled
    - 10wa gloves
    - Tier 3 or Tier 4 Monster Book Ring
    - Join Zak Runs
    - Join CWKPQ Runs
    - Join HT 12 man afew times, and hopefully 10 man at least once.

    Some challenges:
    - No usage of FM until I buy my zak helm. Exception will be to buy gold tooth.
    --> EDIT: FAILED TWICE. This particular Challenge will be stopped from lvl 61 onwards.
    ----> Lvl 55: Bought a 64wa Japanese map for 1.2m
    ----> Lvl 61: Got a Lord Pirate Hat +9 Stats, will break challenge.
    ----> Lvl 61: Spent ~900k on scrolling capes. End result: 10STR Cape + 3STR 4Slot cape.
    - Never sell stuffs on FM.
    - No selling fame, and donation of any sort.
    - Any good scrolls I get well, goes to my main account Q.Q
    - No leeching of any sort
    - Can have mules, must be on same account.
    - Can share resources with mules via Storage Keeper.
    - DO NOT USE EVENT ITEMS. Exceptions is cosmetics, chairs and AP Resets.

    Mules Restrictions:
    - Mainly same as NotHelpful
    -> No fundings from other players (exception will be from NotHelpful via Storage Keeper)
    -> FM banned until NotHelpful gets a zak helm.
    -> Useful items gets transferred to my main char, or main mules.
    -> One direction transfers -> Can donate to others, but no receiving donations from others (other than from NotHelpful via Storage Keeper)
    - Can share resources with NotHelpful via Storage Keeper.

    Thats about it I guess? Hope I'll be motivated enough to complete this simple journal, and hope the no-leech portion doesn't kill me.

    Short summary of what happened so far.
    New hero/pally players, or pseudo ironman mode players may use it as a reference.

    Burnt Land V gives much better epm compared to teddies, but are very far away from PQ areas.

    Pretty doable given that at LVL 140 you have base 9k HP, might reach 17k HP by early 15x with really low washing.

    Give or take 100+700HP from rings + 1ish wash per lvl from 50 (if got zak and low low base int) you'll basically be at
    5k wash + 800 rings + 9k = 15k HP ~ish

    Most likely can reach tier 6 without much of an hassle given you're not leeching by lvl 80ish
    Tier 8+ with ACB after 4th job.

    ^ Aquarium will be a big F I can tell you that (personal experience) XD

    Yep, it shouldn't be difficult. I have issues voting more than 2 account so, I don't wanna vote on this account for too long.

    Current plan is to train normally without base INT at lvl 1 to 40. Once level 50, get 50 base INT, and level till 140. According to Chew's calculator, I should have 17k base HP without equips.

    My hero didn't leech, but i was too lazy to grind outside meta maps so, I ended up only at T4 ||oTL

    I can already feel it QAQ

    Day 1: About 3~4 hours of grinding I guess? Didn't keep track due to going on and off.

    Goal now is to just hit lvl 30 asap, but warriors have accuracy issues so this is gonna be pretty tough.

    Probably the better choice if I'm not going NT/ST

    Right now, I don't wanna dream too big, esp since my hero hasn't went to both HT and NT yet. But if I managed to last long enough, I'll definitely add it to the list :D


    Have a look at this picture xD

    Day 2: ~3 hours of grinding and questing

    More questing, but did have some interesting observations.
    During lvl 18, I was having about 50% miss rate on green mushroom. Once I leveled up, I was kinda tilted so I added +5 DEX. Suddenly, I don't miss anymore.
    Same thing happened on blue mushrooms at lvl 20 or 21, cant remember.

    Upcoming goals:
    - Go KPQ, get slime boots, hopefully with INT.
    - More questing, make more mesos for 100% speed scrolls and dex glove scrolls.

    Will probably add up to maximum of 50 DEX, will probably not add anymore dex anytime soon.

    Got a fork-on-a-stick from green mushroom to help me speed up my grind, great stuffs.
    [​IMG]

    Later on, slime gave me a gold surfboard, another great stuffs.
    [​IMG]

    During about lvl 21, I was at henesy questing. Since I've got the mesoes, I've decided to buy a speed shoe in preparation for level 25.
    [​IMG]

    Also at lvl 23, I ran out of HP pots. Questing gave me so much potions that I did not need to buy pots until lvl 23.
    [​IMG]

    For those taking these routes too, pls get as much accuracy as possible.
    If you are slightly funded (random lvl 30 first char lying around), do yourself a favor do one or two of these:
    - make a +10 DEX bathrobe (buy 100% from kerning scroll seller) (probably the best option but players may skip this to use lvl 35 OA in future)
    - make a +5 DEX glove (buy 100% scroll from orbis scroll seller)
    - hop into FM (you are not FM locked like me) and find/owl a cheap Blue Old Wisconsin. Green bamboo hat is good too, but alone won't be enough

    This is even more true for players who are using the +40-60 base INT asap strategy, as they have lesser AP points to spare, very likely still surviving with 4 DEX.

    If not, either your questing slows down and you grind on low level mobs, or you go high dex (for early levels) like me.
    Compared to 40 INT starters, what I'm doing is much, much easier however.

    They will be transfered to my main account or mules while this account doesn't benefit from it. For this character, its as good as such events never happened.

    I'll probably still record down such stuffs tho hahah

    Edit: I guess u can say im simulating bad luck, since some players can be really unlucky.

    This helps against the debate of "gotta have gear to wash", even if slightly, the chances of getting good rewards from gacha are too volatile and hard to be 1/1 for other people too.

    Yup, that's kind of the main purpose - not requiring good rewards (just NPC everything away) will allow warriors to reach bossing levels. Doesn't simulate ultra bad luck like 5 rav runs in a row with no equips to npc, but it should be realistic enough.

    Day 2.5: ~1.5 hours, ~1 hr mix questing and ?? on KPQ. Had some spare time so I decided to do questing alittle more.

    Upcoming Goal:
    - Get Pig Illustration
    - Quest till lvl 30 -> Get second job
    - Start Ariant Questline
    - Make more meso, and upgrade my boots with 5x 100% speed scroll
    - Make more meso, and upgrade my glove with 5x 100% DEX scroll

    SP Distribution
    lvl 24-26: +3 Power Strike


    Some stuffs I've observed:
    Green, Horny and Zombine Mushroom hits me for about 100 damage. Thus I gotta pot up every 3 hits. Thats not good in the long term.

    Probably not relevant, but the ellinia's map was really nice. Lots of different kind of dungeons inside those trees -> I never knew Forest North (right before Perion) had those hidden dungeons.

    Decided to spend some meso on armor, which will hopefully lessen my total spending as time passes.

    While shopping for armors, spotted this set of top and bottom:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Thats +12 speed right there, more than bathrobe. Instantly bought it despite not being able to wear them now. I did not test the damage negation, but due to the speed, it will make it a decent purchase.

    Why did I not buy bathrobe?
    Bathrobe only sells in showa (and FM :()
    If I go over to showa now, I'll either burn alot of potion or straight up die. Not gonna risk it.

    3x KPQ at lvl 25:
    With my gold surfboard and 40 DEX, I couldn't hit real alligators. But the ones in KPQ, I can land hits easily.

    Was carried by 2 mages inside. 2 successful runs, and one unsuccessful run. One of them died to king slime while holding passes.

    I leveled up to 26 in just only 3 runs, starting at roughly 14% exp at lvl 25. Gonna stop KPQ at this point due to it feeling like a leech. I am giving up on slime shoe.

    KPQ Rewards:
    - 1x Red Cross Earring
    - 1x Scroll for Topwear for DEF 10%

    After KPQ, I equipped some starry headband I've found during questing, the Red Whitebottom Boots, and Red Cross Earring.

    This is awesome! I can't wait to see further progress on this character. Sounds there are some challenging rules in there but that is what is going to make it fun. Can't wait to see more!
