    Just gonna say that lag plays a huge role in the magic bolt skills. Firebolt is forgiving, but Lightning bolt and ice bolt don't charge or cast fast enough with lag. I followed that guide for it to a T and come up 2k points short. Every. Single. Time. Everything else I've done is fine, but those horrible bolts....
    @logomyego ~ Have you disabled Nagle's Algorithm? The following post isn't saying lag doesn't exist at all. It's saying these things aren't as dependent on a 'zero-lag' connection as people are implying they are. If you're not, as said, 'on Google Fiber' and live right next to the server; disabling Nagle's Algorithm isn't really a choice (I'm saying it should not be considered one). Even then; it's not a choice; it's something that should absolutely be done by everyone who plays the game, always. What I basically said below is the responsibility of doing this should be taken away from the user; because most people are too dumb to clean their browser-cache and history, let alone edit their system registry. :smirk:

    I denaggled my computer a long time ago. I tried many things to help reduce the lag on my client-end, but they only help marginally. Mods are out of the question, I do not want to mod. I live in what one could consider "-removed- Nowhere" and I can honestly say that my lag is here to stay. It doesn't bother me one bit in normal game play. Running dungeons, sms, MA, or whatnot, the lag is tolerable and I can work my play style around it to succeed. But these Dan tests for the bolt skills... They rely on quick charging, and quick casting. Neither of which are obtainable in sufficient amounts under the lag that I experience. Like I said, I can tolerate what lag I have when it comes to normal game play. But under a time and score limit for the dan tests is quite literally impossible. I wish that were a joke. If I could figure it out, I'd record my game play, but I feel like that would only make things worse lol

    Location does in fact matter. It shouldn't, but it does.

    @Buffalos ~ I wasn't saying lag does not exist, or that no one experiences lag. I'm more or less implying I don't believe any of this depends on a zero lag connection (no lag at all) to be done (despite the number of stories from folks who'd like you to believe you need to be in S. Korea).

    Just gonna say that lag plays a huge role in the magic bolt skills. Firebolt is forgiving, but Lightning bolt and ice bolt don't charge or cast fast enough with lag.

    Any tips for lightning rod? I haven't gotten past 5k and it seems impossible to pass.

    I got Dan 2 Lightning Rod now. My advice is to have your hotkeys set up to use LR, Chaincast, and Firebolt. Lightning Bolt if you want to take out deadlies and stragglers quicker.

    Use Lightning rod on the Crystal. If it doesn't die in one shot, chaincast firebolt. It should drop then. Your cooldowns get reset upon killing a crystal.

    When the mobs spawn, position yourself in an area where you can hit as many enemies as possible. I try to get at least 3, which will reset your cooldown for LR. Sometimes hitting just 2 will also reset the cooldown. If the cooldown doesn't reset, chaincast firebolt to take out the next mob.

    When you get to the golems, use LR > Chaincast > Firebolt > Firebolt spam. Use firebolt to keep distance till LR is off cooldown, repeat.

    At the end, you will get bonus points depending on how much damage you caused with LR. Should at least get 1k points.

    Also pick up MP pots. This one is optional, but it helps if you need to get SS rank, but if you get lightning sprites, restart.
