Thread: Survive Or Die ( SoD ) Guide for Newbies

  1. #1

    Post Survive Or Die ( SoD ) Guide for Newbies

    I am creating this guide for all new players and people having questions
    about Survive or Die ( SoD ) since it is not the same as the good old days.

    A few changes as been made and tweaking of the SoD

    1.0 Survive or Die Basic

    The basics of Survive or die is to kill monsters and gain points.
    The more points you get the more Prize money and Experience you will gain.

    2.0 Survive or Die Rounds

    Survive or Die is divided into 7 rounds and a bonus round.
    Each round as a specific list of monsters that spawns.

    this is where the fun starts.
    The rounds are also part of a set

    Set 1 = Round 1-2-3
    Set 2 = Round 4-5-6-7
    Set 3 = Round 8

    Set 1: 4 teams compete to get the highest score. After you complete Set 1 your character will dance/clap and a new window will open showing the points of all the teams.


    You will be given cash and kicked out of Survive or Die

    Why, simply because the 2 teams with the highest score will be moved to SET 2.

    Set 2 : 2 teams compete to get the highest score. After you complete Set 2 your character will dance/clap and a new window will open showing the points of all the teams.


    You will be given cash and kicked out of Survive or Die

    The team with the Highest score out of the 4 teams will be able to Ascend to the 8th and Final Round.

    Monster list Coming soon

    3.0 Survive or Die Requirements

    Survive or Die is divided into 2 Competition

    Ricarten Competition : lvl 40 to 79

    Navisko Competition : Lvl 80 +

    Why am I using the word Competition, because Survive or Die is a big Competition between 4 Teams that competes.
    That is why there is a scoring system in Survive or Die.

    Always wondered why there are 4 NPC Standing there not doing nothing and looking pretty.
    Well Each NPC represent a Team

    For Ricarten NPC
    NPC Agni - Tribal of Fire
    NPC Nina - Tribal of Water
    NPC Bayoo - Tribal of Wind
    NPC Danu - Tribal of Land

    For navisko NPC
    NPC Casa - Tribal of Fire
    NPC Ariel - Tribal of Water
    NPC Sylpi - Tribal of Wind
    NPC Noas - Tribal of Land

    Depending on your level you can go to either Ricarten Survive or Die
    or Navisko Survive or Die.

    To enter the Survive or Die Competition:

    At dawn, just after the night time is over.
    You choose which team you want to enter by clicking the NPC.
    She will ask you to say yes and then a small window will pop up and ask you to pay the entrance fee.

    The Entrance fee is like any other competition, you need to pay to secure your spot in it.

    The fee is calculated as follow

    Ricarten Competition = 300 gold per character level.
    Example : you are level 40, so [300 gold x 40 = 12 000 Gold Entrance Fee.]

    Navisko Competition = 700 gold per character level
    Example : you are level 100, so [700 gold x 100 = 70 000 Gold Entrance Fee.]

    You can decide to Solo or party up.

    for parties, just make sure that all party members enter Survive or Die by the same NPC

    Hint: decide before hand which NPC/TEAM you want to enter and let the party know.

    4.0 Point System.

    To gather points, you simply need to

    ~First: Kill as many monsters as you can in each round

    ~Second: Survive each round without dying.

    ~Third: Use special drops to help you Survive ( Seals )
    Blind Seal - Blinds the enemies.
    Stun Seal - Stuns the enemies.
    Freeze Seal - Freezes or slows the enemies.
    Random Seal - Get a random seal.
    Rabby Seal - Summons a Rabby Boss and rabby monsters to get Extra Points.
    Stygian Seal - Summons a Stygian to Help you.
    5000 points up - Gives you bonus points.
    Death sword Seal - Gives you a flying sword that attacks.
    Iron Seal - Gives you the ability to tank more.
    Power Seal - Increases your ATK Power but lowers your ABS.
    Quake Seal - Damanges all enemies with an earthquake.

    Round 3 - 6 and 8 spawns a Boss Monster.

    The Boss Monster will give Extra Points to the Player that kills it.

    Round 3 Boss Monster : Guilty Gordon
    Round 6 Boss Monster : Vega Dimir
    Round 8 Boss Monster : HellSing

    Each Party Member will gather individual points which will be added to the total points of the Team.

    5.0 Survive or die Death.

    So What does happen if you die in Survive or Die

    Dying in Survive or Die is the same as dying in Priston tale.
    A window will pop up asking you

    Field - Town - Quit.

    if you click field or town, you will be moved to your home town, Ricarten or Phillai.
    If you click quit, you will exit the game.

    Also dying in Survive or Die will cause you to loose the Competition which means :

    You do not get Cash prize or Special Reward and the end.
    You Loose Experience.
    You have to wait till morning to Re-Enter Survive or Die.

    6.0 Survive or Die Rewards.

    Whats the point in Battling 4 teams, gripping to every point, Killing as much as possible and trying our best to be #1.

    During the Survive or Die Competition,
    Every point gained = 1 gold ( if you can finish first ) Gold awarded at the end of Survive or Die
    Every loot that drops you can keep it if you pick it up ( even if you fail the Competition )
    Experience, Experience, Experience. ( don't need to say more )

    Also at the End of Survive or Die there is a Special Reward that I will keep secret, see for yourself and finish Survive or die.

    That is it so far, i can't think of anything else, if this post can become a sticky that would be great and feel free to PM me with any additional information you have, I will complete this guide and add a Special thank you Section and add your name to it

    you forgot about the rabby seal, the longer it remains on ground the more points you get out of it
    for example
    if you noticed it appeared right before 1st round was over don't click it .. wait for it until round 3

    correct me if im up to date with this info.. we used to keep it for longer but it has a timing before it vanish from floor

    you can log and run a test in sod .. you will notice if you click right when rabby appears it gives a fix amount of points
    that points increase the longer you wait before clickin it ...

    I have not been to sod for ages .. (2006-2007) plus im getting old to keep track of old info

    guess old players no longer exist or the sod hardcore ones that they know about the rabby seal (delay it = more points)

    anyways, I used to go SoD a lot with EveRDiE clan, they are the expert ones .. wait for one of them to pop up and talk about this extra points

    here is a tips and tricks for the seals:

    How to be a pro in sod? First rule: DO NOT ANYHOW USE SEALS!

    SEALS that you can use immediately: Quake, +5000pts
    SEALS you use at the end of rounds: Freeze, Stun,
    SEALS you should never touch unless you are pro: Guardian Saint, Stygian
    special SEAL rabie should try to use at rd3, rd6 or rd8.

    for some seals you have stated above, I have to test sod and consider when to use them x_x
