    Dan 3 magnum is crazy hard, but doable. I would have hated to do it on a human though. o_O

    I can't ever see them replacing it with just paying gold. It's intended to be a heavy money sink and bragging rights.

    Crazy hard is hardly extreme enough of a description for Human magnum shot Dan test for Dan 3.

    when everything goes right as a human, the best I ever got was 11k, just like Hellkaizer said.

    and that was me getting Dan 2.

    Ever since the highest I can do while trying, and missing 95%'s, not critting, is 8kish.

    This is absolutely a case of artificial difficulty and unfair balance, Humans waste a WHOLE second MORE than elves per magnum shot due to the cooldown.

    And elves already have issues getting Dan 3?

    Give me a break.

    RNG =\= skill..

    p.s.

    This reply is not a personal attack on you, but the Dan 3 magnum shot disparity in difficulty between human and elf tests.

    On a side note, the flameburst dan3 is also just as bad, you basically need crits to pass. I'm honestly just tired of dan tests in general, a lot of them were a good challenge that really tests your knowledge of the skill, but with magnum it's kill everything as fast as possible to get to the last round where hits mean something.

    From my experience with the mabinogi dan tests there is a negligible lag in US weather you are on east coast or west coast. There is a slight lag from Canada. Only people who have valid complaint about lag are from outside US such as those from EU. Unless they subscribe to paid service that can boost their connection speed.

    You can watch YouTube videos by Yamanoki on mabinogi dan tests to see the technique that can be used.

    Only human charge and human magnum tests have flawed design.

    Human magnum dan 3 test is flawed not only because of extra 1 sec cooldown but also because it takes longer for human to walk towards the monster. I saw Ellisya/Rena Kim youtube video where she did very well to pass human magnum dan 3. So it is not entirely impossible.

    To pass charge dan test, you need for monster server to give highly delayed multiaggro. I never got monster server in such a condition. In addition, humans move back more slowly.

    I usually scored 15-16 k on all bolt dan 3 tests, but did not save a lightning bolt screen shot thinking that it was not too hard to do so.

    I wish that windmill dan test was harder. Back in the days, we had to solo ciar adv with windmill only on deadly status to get good exp. That training helped with windmill dan test. Near the end of the test I was waiting more for test to get over rather than scoring.

    I've been playing at 200 ping (370 without vpn) and the worst dans so far are definitely Magnum and Healing, no doubt. (got those 2 and 4 other life skills left)

    Obligatory bump on this post because Dan tests are still as frustrating as ever...

    I haven't tried all of the dan tests, but I have noticed that some are ridiculously easy, like windmill, and others are stupid hard like flame burst. I honestly didn't even know what I was doing wrong for flame burst before looking up how to do it and finding out that you are supposed to just windmill through all the trash mobs and rack up points on the wizards. Which I got to say isn't really testing how well I can use flame burst if I mostly have to use windmill. I'm just glad windmill was easy to dan as I got SS every time without even trying. Then there is the issue of lag, which really puts a dampen on the game when all of a sudden you rubber band backwards and now all the archers have aggro'd you and between them and the blinkers you just can't do anything. So yeah not all dans need to be easier but some do.

    P.S. It might actually be good for business since if more people have dan 3 more people will want to buy combo card extenders.
