Expert coli to me is like a mystery that is hard to figure out. (just like what inter was a few months ago) At the moment my mae is 193 and i cannot survive full expert ( with the exception of two times; I got lucky ) I can go as far as like 75~80% of expert. Although most of the time, those mine minotaurs start showing up, and spam their stupid wide as hell stomp attack, or their def reducing slash attack. Usually I use jjoo remedies the second these minos show up but more than half the time I get screwed over by magic immunity(the most useless effect in coli/pve)
I changed my mae's skill build many times, at least 6 times I believe.
My skill build ranged from complete offensive(like having as much wind as possible), to something more defensive-ish (maxing prestissimo, or having prelude of blood) Out of all the builds I had I seem to always max out allargando and grazioso.
At the moment, this is my mae's current skill build:
My mae's equipment is
LV180 Emery Helm / Stamina Lv10 +32, Defense +60
Coli Mana Plate +8 / Magic Lv9 +32, Stamina Lv9 +30
Coli Mana Clip +8 / Magic Lv10 +31
Magic Gloves +1 / Magic Crit Dmg +64%
Red Orchalcum Boots / Physical Evasion +17, Movement Speed +64
Coli Stamina Glass / Magic Accuracy +12
Coli Stamina Bindi / Magic +32
Coli Stamina Stocking / Stamina +32
Goblin Wizard Earring +9 / Magic +25
Goblin Magi Seal +9 / Magic +28
Wind Coli Stone +8 / Max Wind Dmg LV10 +33%
Coli Music Rod +8 / Magic Lv6 +16, Min Magic Dmg Lv5 +11% ,Max Magic Dmg Lv10 +44%
I have seen other maes out there with better statted rod like min/max 30ish/50ish~70ish with more stamina in their armor instead of magic, and sometimes pet effect stacking (husky/white tiger, etc.) and either use prelude or not, and I hear/seen that they still have trouble surviving.
So in case if there are TL;DR-ish people reading this; how the hell does a mae do expert coli flawlessly. . .?
P.S. Youtube vids of maestro solo expert coli don't seem to be that great of an example ._.
