Helms Post

From BDO WIKI
Jump to: navigation, search

Home of the barbaric Helm tribe native to Mediah. They usually aren’t particularly friendly to others. It is said that they used to be the Dwarves who lived in South Dragan. Some suspect the reason they came up here is that some internal conflict within the tribe, but only those of the Helm tribe know the truth and they really dislike outsiders.

Strategies

Precautions

Most of the monsters have low defense, but they have high attack. Therefore, the most effective way to hunt these monsters is to learn how to negate their attacks (good use of status effect skills, acquiring more DP). However, the most important point is the Helm Golem (Lv. 59) throughout the hunting ground. They have extremely high HP and AP and use attacks from a distance using magic skills, so even an adventurer with the recommended requirements could die in the blink of an eye. If you think it is going to be impossible to win after a short encounter with it, the wise choice would be to put your pride aside and take the nearest exit.

Key Locations and Hunting Route

The congested area to the Northwest is the most popular, but the other locations aren’t too bad either. The Helms Post has various loot that can be acquired, and the occasional ‘Scarla Necklace’ can be sold for a hefty sum of silver coins. It could be a very efficient place for gaining EXP if you have recommended stats of AP and high movement speed.
