B F Drill?
Yippee - Okay - we got through Volcano - first time through NFG sword, second time BF Drill - (POS Drill ) 716 damage and no upgrades. This is supposed to beat NM lab assault I dont get it? Also: so what is the difference between this and a crystal tracker which seems to be a lot easier to get and has higher stats? which is also a useless weapon for killing with! Now; unless there is a huge massive gigantic difference between insane & Nm Volcano crap, why does everyone want you to have a BF Drill or kick?

You can solo it without the BF Drill with 3-4k stats as any class on NMHC. Most people think it's only possible with one without 6k stats.

because the masses found an easy way to pass lab assult nmhc with little effort and are blindly following suit. if there was somthing this stupid to pass crystaline dimension, greater turkey hunt, temple of love nm hc or any other difficult maps it would be equally exploited and require just as stupid a farm as the b f drill.

b f drill shoots a big energy burst explosion the boss at the end of lab assult has a stupid mechanic that makes it jump everytime you shoot. if you stand in the right corner and have enough bf drills firing the ev mobs jump off the cliff and die you dont acctually kill them they kill them selves and they rarely attack you meaning you can have good resistances and crappy hp's and still pass.

if trendy wasnt so busy copying other games (dota2 , LoL) they should of had this fixed. but they wont.

Thanks guys - i was just wondering why the hype over it. Anyways just got through 2 NM Volcanic and the BF Drill had much better stats. Still not worth the stress of the volcanic lava kissing your a s s all the way up the hill though. LOL

This is not entirely true. Using the BF Drill is a legitmate strategy, and even using this method lab assault still requires lots of skill to complete.

If you call that 'lots of skill' to execute that cheesy strategy, then you have a very poor understanding of how far the scale of skill goes.

Well for beginners it can be quite a challenge to actually do nmhc solo. I now for sure i struggled in the beginning^^
But since my jest has decent equip I can pretty much do it blind folded :D

It still does require skill. I usually can only do it with 2 afks because if I use 3 my screen space for the jester is too small and it's hard for me to see what's going on.

you can do it with the worst bf drill you can get every crystal have a "safe zone" where no monsters can attack you stack some resistence and live for the boss dmg dont count there and "tada" you can farm high-end equip ....

I cannot get through the NM so I dont know how the BF Drill is for the Boss. Insane almost any weaopn will do - but my best is still a pawn shot. Cannot get a better weapon one yet. I have been trying with very crappy results of grade F weapon drops. Lol
