Automaton Killing Guide

Recommended Posts

Hey! You there! Did Kuradel just assign you automatons? No problem! Check out the new(ish) Automation Guide written by @Army of One and join the human resistance!

I first thought this was a guide about killing bots, but still interesting! :D

Well it technically is, isn't it.

 

The pics left me a little confused, though. I'm not sure what those vial-looking thing are. Are they vials from Prifddinas? I'd assume so but can't be sure.

And that item of which there's 1960 I've never seen before. What's its function in combat exactly?

Yep those are combination potions.

 

And the stacked 1960 items are dreadnips, Deploy them to aid you in combat by attacking your target you deploy them against :P

Nice work!

 

I've killed about 4k of these things. Made a couple dozen million gp, but never a glove drop :(

Actually now that I've read the guide thoroughly, there's an addition I could make with regards to the special attack. Not sure if it's too late now though :(

 

-

 

With regards to the special attack, the special attack only triggers after a set amount of time (random for each automaton) has passed after you clicked to attack one. The time varies but it's generally around the range of 20-30 seconds (didn't do enough research there) but for all intents and purposes if you melee with drygore weaponry and at least normal overloads, you should be able to kill it before the special occurs.

 

That said, if you clicked to attack an automaton but clicked away to change targets/logout/teleport/die, the automaton timer will still engage and countdown, and use its special after the timer has counted down fully. Be careful when clicking multiple automatons by accident in the area, as it could lead to multiple automatons doing its special attack near you without warning.

It's not a problem don't worry, but I won't touch the guide because Army of One will probably want to make the changes himself (if he feels they're necessary) so it may take a short while to get added. Thanks for the submission!
