Description

Hydra Transmutation.png Lethal Venom from the Underground

Details

  • Requires a Cylinder and a Guard Cylinder equipped at the same time to use.
    • Can not be used if either cylinder is broken.
  • 5 Earth Crystals are consumed upon use.
  • Summons a Hydra that breathes poison over a wide area, reducing the opponent's Magic Protection and Magic Defense and deals damage over time.
    • Health reduction effect stacks with other damage over time effects such as Poison Attack or Mirage Missile, ignores Passive Defense, Invulnerability, and Mana Shield during damage calculation, and can lower a target's HP past 0 and can kill.
      • Monsters with Self-Destruct will not explode on death if Hydra Transmutation defeats them.
    • Will not cancel the effects of an active Lullaby.
    • Will not defeat enemies with "Finish" over their name.
    • Can damage enemies through walls.
    • The damage dealt additively increases after every damage "tick," capping after the 5th "tick."
      • For example, Hydra Transmutation with a calculated base damage of 100 over 10 "ticks" will do (100 + 200 + 300 + 400 + 500 + 500 + 500 + 500 + 500 + 500) = 4000 cumulative damage per target.
        • If no target is hit during the tick, the damage will not increase on the next tick, but will maintain its current stacking until another enemy enters the area of effect.
    • Hydra Transmutation cannot score criticals.
    • Hydra Transmutation's base damage is influenced by 8% of the user's remaining Stamina; for example, if the user had 100 remaining Stamina, the skill would deal an additional 8 damage.
      • Final base damage is influenced by Alchemy Mastery, Earth Alchemy Mastery, Cylinder Bonus, and alchemy damage boosts(?) from enchants and titles.
        • This is calculated as: [{(Base Damage + Clay Damage Enchants + (Remaining Stamina * 0.08)) * [1 + 3 * (Alchemy Mastery Bonus + Earth Alchemy Mastery Bonus)]} - Enemy Magic Defense]
          * (1 - Damage Reduction from Magic Protection) * Cylinder Modifier * Elemental Modifier
    • Unlike other area of effect skills, Hydra Transmutation has a target limit, meaning that only a certain number of enemies can be attacked by the skill rather than all enemies within range. The target limit increases at higher ranks of this skill.
    • Enabling Mini Effects causes the poison breath to become invisible.
  • The summoning of a Hydra does not count as an attack, allowing Elves to Hide immediately after summoning.
    • However, because the player is not actively attacking the monster, using only this would negate the player from receiving the finishing blow to the monster if other people are attacking it.
  • Dyed parts B and C of the equipped Guard Cylinder determine the Hydra's overall and underside colors, respectively.
  • Hydra Transmutation increases the Attribute Marbles by 30% to clay and 15% to fire.

Training Method

Tips

  • To gain additional hits with the skill at high ranks, lower your Stamina, such as using Meditation and Counterattack with Knuckles. This will result in less extra damage, allowing the hydra to hit more times before killing enemies.
    • Using any elemental Cylinder, aside from a Clay-based one, will also trim damage by up to 12%.
  • Using Enthralling Performance on weaker monsters will help lure many enemies at once into the range of your hydra.
  • Once in range of Hydra, Lullaby may be ideal for holding in place and preventing aggro, affecting up to 15 at rank 1 and having an effective sleep time of 21+ seconds.
  • Training the skill efficiently may require using the Hide and Play Dead actions, using the skill Crisis Escape, or simply avoiding aggro altogether.
    • Giants may also use Wind Guard and Taunt to draw mobs and reduce incoming damage.
  • Shadow missions are often ideal for training. Difficulty may be adjusted to find ideal enemy combat power ranges.
    • Many, such as Sulfur Spider, Provocation, and Offering, provide ideal spawn rates and cluster grouping.
      • Their Method provides ideal training for many ranks, with numerous high-health, slow moving groups of four enemies.
    • Rain Casting at rank 1, Shock, and Crisis may be useful for crowd control, however the latter two may incur significant damage.
  • A couple Saga missions, while fixed to a specific difficulty based on your total level, will provide instant respawn rates in tight quarters.
    • Negative Combat Power Gear (or positive) can be used to mitigate combat power issues. High Combat Power may help in finding hardy enemies for higher ranks.
    • Proceed with the ritual! spawns multiple mobs at a time.
  • The Kitchen Dungeon is ideal for boss requirements, due to the high CP of the enemies.
  • Elves can easily train at Martial Arts with Hide, as aggro takes several seconds to activate, allowing the player to use Hydra and Hide within that time frame.
