Swift metal KILLS ToG Hammers!

Post by [CaL]-ყɳคг∂ τђε βลℜð on Thu Apr 10, 2014 1:55 am

I just was informed that Swift metal effectively stops the Hammers of Time in the last battle of ToG. I went out and finally managed to solo a ToG and it was like a walk in the park with this neat trick. The Swift was so effective (+50% chance and +6 secs swift grand ring here) I didn't even have time to test out whether Ice slows them down like Swift. But for me, it made all the difference 8-)

Previously I despised ToGs and couldn't solo them 'cos of Jhramet. I still hate them for being non-instanced, but now I can finish one if I find a quiet one without noone else running it :mrgreen:

I'm not a fan of solo ToG runs either, although I've don't it solo many, many times. Jhramet and the hammers take as much time as the entire rest of the dungeon using taunt and shield charge on hammers. I can tell you that ice does work on the hammers. I would be curious if anyone has experience using both ice and swift on which one works better and if there is a significant difference.

I don't have levi but I'm told that works on hammers too.

I solo ToG's ALOT and without Ice OR Swift. My current trick is bash Jrammet with 2 Trolls and me till it spawns 2 hammers. once 2 hammers have spawned, I net them and kill them. Rinse and repeat. I have 3 ToG's on my KD land, and I can do all 3 at least once per day when I decide to work on them. Maybe swift might work, but I don't really need it.

I know many people are effective at soloing ToGs but for me they were always a pain. Guess my gear setup wasn't optimal for the task. But with Swift Lute it took me less than Sunken City end boss and I didn't need to even fire Taunt which also freezes the Hammers.

I'll try it soon again and see if Ice completely freezes the Hammers as Swift did. Ice has benefits over Swift (cheaper to obtain, higher proc chance and longer duration) but with my double Swift ring I had no problem with Hammers. They were gone in 10 seconds and I was back on pounding the big guy.

I recall ice slowing them to a crawl, but not stopping them. But I wasn't using any rings I think.

I don't have swift but I do have an ice xbow and it slows the hammers to a snails pace but it don't stop them and I have an ice ring that slows them down further

I load up my trolls with swift/ice/honed/ret weapons and armor. I have levi/ice/ret/honed stuff i switch between on them. The hammers aren't usually much of a problem, maybe 5 minutes to kill the boss.

Taunt stops the hammers too, I kinda skimmed and i'm not sure whether it was mentioned

I use an ice bp & a swift spear. When the hammer is stopped i switch to my fire spear. Lately, though, i'm finding my levi sling lets me kill them just as fast or faster, without taking any damage from them.
