I am a level 14 Soldier. I am currently in ICC HQ and trying to find a Screwdriver to adjust this weapon. I have looked at the vendor for tech, where I see hacker tool, lock pick, etc., but no Screwdriver.
“You might be able to adjust the weapon with a Screwdriver so that is performs better.”
- What does adjust do? Better stats?
- Should I find a better weapon?
- It’s taking me forever to kill stuff. I am not seeing many combat programs for my soldier, other than buffs.
Thanks for any help.
Answer is 2 Have you looked for https://aoitems.com/item/301711/illegally-modified-ofab-shark/ in Subway? Or maybe someone has one for you? Had a look on the GMI?
First thing I would suggest is taking a look at this soldier guide over at AO universe: https://www.ao-universe.com/guides/classic-ao/profession-guides/tepaminas-soldier-guide-13
It’s a little dated, but mostly still holds true.
At level 14, I’d be looking for the appropriate Illegally Modified Ofab weapon from the subway. Shotgun isn’t a common choice for soldier, as you miss out on the Full Auto special, but can be made to work.
A screwdriver can be bought at a Smithing Terminal in the trade-skills dept at any Fair Trade or Omni/Clan basic/advanced/superior shop.
The subway OFAB weapons are your best bet for good easily obtained weapons.
What Auctoria said above. I’d add, Soldiers are all about Shields and Full Auto.
Thanks guys. I am using the Shark now. It works so much faster. I tried an energy weapon and it was taking about 7-10 seconds to fire, lol.
At low levels that will depend on where your DEF / AGG slider is (bottom right hand corner of the screen)
At low levels it’s better to keep it at full AGG
beside the FA Special, after the Shark you can have a look for https://aoitems.com/item/152027/neutrino-flash/ in the Steps of Madness, http://wiki.aodb.us/wiki/Steps_of_Madness, take a high with for the SoM shopping tour.
I second @howlylynx, the Neutrino Flash is a great fun, fast weapon that has a proper oldschool AO soldier look to it. It will comfortably last you until 60 as a fr00b and is a good stopgap to your first Perennium Blaster if paid.
