This is not for Froobs
- i have write this for LE/AI/SL Player they have pay for AO and like to enjoy to play with AI and OFAB Weapons
**This is for Newcomer or Return to AO is still alive **
- When you have a 200+ Sugar Daddy, i know, you don’t have all this Newcomer issues!
Give it a try, play AO “like a Newcomer”, and then try to upgrade AI or Ofab Weapons, without a big GMI wallet, without a 200+ Trade skill character in the Backyard. And without a Team Dummy for AI Sector Boss Missions ^^ See?
Letz sta rz (i like the Leet King, he makes me smile)
After the Tutorial Map (you see your first AI Ship) you get QL L9 - QL16 AI Weapons, i have all Types (just to look at this shiny tingz) in my BANK. But all this AI Weapons need Kyr’Ozch Bio-Material XXX and some Trade Skills, with HUGE luck you find a Teammate to kill the AI Boss in the Tutorial AI Ship, and get Bio Mat …
Now we SKIP, letz say we are Level 15. Yo, we go in the Subway - With your Shiny little AI Weapons, but then with L20, you realize your AI Weapons “without an upgrade”, are useless. But you have LOOT your fist “illegal” OFAB Weapon in the Subway. Now we SKIP again, and we are Level 25, the illegal OFAB Weapon is not bad, you may use it up to L40 in ToTW…
SKIP again you are L50 and THEN your Weapon DREAM comes to a END! No AI no illigal OFAB Weapons any more, and you now, at this point you have to play with OLD RK Weapon’s… the Shiny Weapon Thingz are gone! - How to get this “shiny tingz” back in your Hands? Remember, we pay a Acc for this, to have FUN!
Think of it, even when i buy today a QL75 Ofab Pistol in the Battleground Shop, for 1100 VP, this Pistol is useless without Kyr’Ozch Bio-Material 812. That means VP is useless for AO Newcomer, you can buy a OFAB, but without Upgrade, you have no Fling or Burst or Fast Attack… like the AI Weapons before… This are useless Shiny Tingz
Well, Newcomer to LE/SL/AI, play most of the Time, with old Rubi-Ka Weapons, was that intended? (after QL15 AI Weapons from Tutorial Map, and Subway illegal Ofab) AO Newcomer can not play with AI or OFAB Weapons before 200+, because again upgrade Material is not easy to get. Because a Newcomer (or Return to AO Player) don’t have the Resources to upgrade a Low Level OFab or AI Weapons Now, I think you get my Point very well?
# OFAB Weapon Upgrades
The OFAB weapons can be upgraded and improved into 5 new versions
Here are a list of items you will need for the tradeskill
# AI Weapon Upgrades
Alien weapons can be upgraded to add special abilties, and are available up to quality 300
Here are a list of items you will need for the tradeskill
To make it clear: Kyr’Ozch Bio-Material" has to be 80 % from the Weapon QL
And not forget the most Impossible Trade skills, - again - this means without a High-level Trade skill Friend, you can not Upgrade AI Weapons, in YOUR OWN QL Level Range, even when you get the Material and your Kyr’Ozch Structural Analyzer, i have test this with a L105 Fixer, and was not able to upgrade a QL110 AI SMG, to make it just useable. (remember, without a AI Weapon Upgrade, the AI SMG has no Burst) and - again - you need all this Trade skills to upgrade a AI Weapon:
4.5 x QL of Bio-Material in Computer Literacy
4.5 x QL of Bio-Material in Electrical Engineering
6 x QL of Bio-Material in Mechanical Engineering
6 x QL of Bio-Material in Weapon Smithing
And about JOBE Amor - “a try hard”, Newcomer can “maybe” get all the things for JOBE Amor
to upgrade this Amor to T1 - but THEN comes: “Right-click your Canister of Liquid Notum on each Glyph.” this is just a easy click? NOOOO This requires 550 in Quantum FT
Looks like JOBE Amor is a Impossible Task for a L100 with NO TRADE SKILLS. Or do you really think a Newcomer will skill 550 in Quantum FT, or give all his JOBE or AI Weapon Upgrade Stuff, to a unknown other Player, to Trade Skill this? (Maybe when you make a Player interactive “secure” Trade Skill Window for this upgrade Task… like in old times SWG…)
Please, think here of a AO Newcomer, they like just upgrade his/her first low level Weapons or Amor “before QL 150”… that is my huge Point here!
*Or will you say to a Newcomer - SKIP to L200 - make just a L200 Trade Skill Toon and go from there, or make 2 Paid Accounts, to have a AI Buff and Boss Team in the BY But that is not how MMO in 2021 works, “a brand new” AO Player, will not play a MMO like this, when he start AO the Fist Time, he will quit, because the Weapon upgrade Wall is maybe too high!
FC gives you “shiny tingz” a QL15 AI and Illegal OFAB in the Subway but then, they just forget the next steps and let you alone on your way with RK Weapons (not to bad) but bad for SL and AI Content.
So, how can a Newcomer between 25 - 100 get Kyr’Ozch Bio-Material - Type XXX ?
Without buy it over GMI - Today there is no Daly Mission for it! This Freelancer NPC gives you XP, but nothing for your Weapon or Amor upgrades! Nothing for YOU to enjoy our next AI or OFAB Weapons. Well, at this Point you are alone with your good old RK Weapons, maybe a Home Defender, or whatever you can find in a RK Mission or Dyna Camp. That means: Level 25 - 100 even 100 - 200, you play AO most of the Time, with Old RK Weapons (but you pay to play), with LUCK you get in between, a SL Weapon for your Level range. but thats it, no OFAB or AI
There is no Mission for SL Weapons or SL Weapon Upgrades
- the SL Worst Case is OUR good old Rubi-Ka Weapon, makes 20 - 300, but you need for SL 250 - 300 or? Grey SL Mob will kill you in no time… welcome in SL, your L100 Nightmare has just begun Keeper, MA, MP they have a bit more FUN… but YOU little Guy with a Rubi-Ka Water Pistol? Come back when you 20 Level higher and all Garden Key - SL MoB are GREY. That’s SL for NEW Player, when they don’t have the right Gear or Profession to play and enjoy SL and AI Missions.
@FC - Looks like “for me” you think, all Player have a 200+ in the Backyard, a Sugar Daddy for help? Looks like “for me” you have lost the connection to “New Player” Gameplay, a long time ago… in my Eyes AO Today is for 200+ with Billions Credits and all the good Stuff for Twinks
So tell me please, why is AI and OFAB Weapon “Upgrade” - Kyr’Ozch Bio-Material
not a possible Mission Reward for 18 Hour AI Day Mission’s? Maybe play 10 Missions to get a Kyr’Ozch Bio-Material XXX for your Weapon…
Level Up is useless in AO, without the right Gear! The 18 H Day - AI Mob goes higher but not your Weapon. Yes AI MoB in a Day Mission Drops sometimes a AI Weapon BUT HEY you can not upgrade this Shiny Thingz At the End of the Day i play AI Missions with RK Weapons, is it FUN? NO! RK Weapons are not made for AI or SL MoB… is just a very bad experience. For AI and SL you NEED the right Gear to have FUN-com
We have Newcomer Amor 1 to 200 (have just bought this Steam Amor Kit for my Twinks)
But what about Newcomer Weapon Upgrades 1-200? Nothing or? A hard Time for Weapon User.
Or is here something, i don’t see in the “very nice” AOU Tutorials! BTW, when you start AO this website is a must-see: https://www.ao-universe.com - without this Website, it would be impossible to play AO again “for me”. SL would be a Nightmare without all these Tutorials - Thank You! @AOU
What i do, to get around this Weapon and AMOR Upgrade? I will start a new MP, just with a Steam Amor Kit (no JOBE, no OFAB Amor), and i have just my old MA L182 “Mihu” in the BackYard and have blizz all no Vendor NPs, all i need for my new MP) and i play in a very nice ORG. That’s just my way, i will go to 200+. See, for now, I don’t like to fight with this AI Weapon / Amor Upgrade “again”. I will just enjoy AO and SL and get my Garden Keys, will just try this again. Maybe this time i will get a Inferno key … ERGO omw
Wish you all FUN in AO!
