Homunculus S

From iRO Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Homunculi have been the stalwart ally of Alchemists and Biochemists for years, but with the newly evolved power of monsters and the discovery of the 3rd classes, the poor Homunculus could only hope to protect their masters for a few moments before being knocked out. Their underpowered selves really felt bad that they couldn't be stronger. But now, all Geneticists in the world will rejoice as monsters tremble before the might of the newly acquired Homunculus S!

Mutating a Homunculus

To mutate a Homunculus into a Homunculus S, meet the following requirements:

  • Owner must be a Geneticist.
  • Homunculus must be evolved into their 2nd form.
  • Homunculus must be at least Level 99.

Once mutated, the Homunculus' form will completely change into the new "S" form, the Homuculus will remember all of its previous skills from its past form. However, its base stats will change. If the Homunculus did not get the evolved loyalty skill, it will not be able to acquire it after mutating. New Homunculus S skills will become available as the Homunculus reaches certain level requirements. Each Homunculus type can evolve into any Homunculus S, the resulting form is random unless a fee is paid.

WARNING: The Homunculus' Loyalty will reset to 10 after the evolution.

  1. In the Geneticist guild in Lighthalzen, (lighthalzen 53, 132) speak with Viorel, (job3_gen01 12, 44). Agree to visit Viorel's home.
  2. You will be teleported to Viorel's house. Talk to him again, and explore Homunculus Mutation System. He will send you to Jeyna.
  3. Talk to Jeyna; she will ask you to check the Magic Board behind her. This will give brief explanation of the Homunculus S.
  4. Talk to Jeyna again. If you agreed to proceed, she will transform your Homunculus back to a Strange Embryo. Talk to her again and she will send you to Viorel.
  5. Talk to Viorel. He will give you and option to pay 50,000 zeny for a stabilized mutation, or not pay at all but receive unstable mutation.
  6. Choose to pay in order to choose the Homunculus S that you like. He will then transform the embryo to your chosen Homunculus S. Talk to him again to leave the place.

Choosing a Homunculus S

It has been extensively debated on what the exact uses for each Homunculus S are, which Homunculus S are the best to raise, and which is the best combination of Homunculus into Homunculus S. The answer is simple and yet not. A player should choose his/her Homunculus/Homunculus S based on what he plans on doing with his Geneticist down the line. This section will serve as a guide for the Alchemists, Biochemists and recently changed Geneticists out there that are looking for the answers.

Base Homunculi Review

Here is a list of the base Homunculi and what their purposes serve towards a Geneticist's Homunculus S.

  • Filir - Has a very high offensive power, a temporary damage boosting skill, and a high attack speed that will help the Homunculus S level fast, which is extremely helpful to access to their skills as soon as possible for doing whatever it is planned on doing later. Filir is by far the best choice for people that want a fast leveling Homunculus S. Nonetheless, leveling a Filir can be annoying due to its low defense, low HP pool, and poor flee rate in Renewals mechanics (due to it, the rest of the Homunculi have even lower flee rate), but the reward at the end is more than worth it due to its sheer attack power.
Best combination: Sera
  • Vanilmirth - Has an excellent defense and a ranged magic attack that is extremely useful for pulling mobs from a distance to buy time to get a Cart Cannon cast off without getting hit. However, the ranged attack casts a variable element, which can mean that it does either little to no damage against certain mobs, which makes said skill more for just pulling than killing. This is the ONLY option of Homunculus to use if you plan on turning your Geneticist into a potion brewer, since it provides a buff that increases potion creation success rate significantly.
  • Amistr - It is by far the best Homunculus to raise if youre looking to turn your Homunculus S into a tank for solo PvM or to AFK for endless hours. Out of all the Homunculus, this one and Filir provide the most carry over spells for Homunculus S to use, as well as the most useful one. It also makes an average puller due to its survivability and provides his owner with a semidecent Vitality boost. However, it is a complete nightmare to level up due to its lack of attack spell, but has a pretty cool life leeching ultimate attack that can keep him up longer and the ability to switch positions with his owner in a dire situation.
  • Lif - This Homunculus is the most unfortunate one. Currently her spells don't work properly, she has no offensive skills, her defense is poor (but not as poor as Filir's), her healing spell requires you to keep Condensed Red Potions (which can still be somewhat useful), and her movement speed buff eventually becomes overshadowed by Cart Boost (which also increases your damage). Due to all this, she's unable to take advantage of her huge SP pool. Definitely not recommended as a carry over to Homunculus S unless the owner is really attached to her heal spell or to herself.

Homunculi S

Unlike basic Homunculi, Homunculi S take much longer to level up, possibly for weeks and even months. They also have access to their skills upon a specific level, which is painful for some Homunculi S and even more for others (Eleanor learns her first Offensive skill at Lv100, both Bayeri and Sera at Lv105, Eira at Lv106, and Dieter at Lv109). Reaching their full potential is a long and painful path.

  • Bayeri (Scope: PvM) - A tanky unicorn with attitude. Bayeri uses safety walls on his owner and provides Holy property area damage. However, its biggest weakness is that its area attack is interruptable, which makes it an unpopular choice of Homunculus S amongst most Geneticists. Its skills, when not interrupted, can be useful for leveling, but not so useful for much else. Although his knockback skill could be useful for PvP, there are better options availble to go with.
  • Dieter (Scope: PvM, PvP, WoE and MVP) - The most popular of the Homunculi S. Dieter provides his owner with a significant damage boost (which has the downside of possibly breaking weapons) as well as area damage against mobs. Dieter is very tanky, which combined with his awesome area ability, makes him possibly the best Homunculus S to AFK with. Dieter excels at PvM and MVP, which is why he is a big favorite amongst the Geneticists. He was once strong suited for WoE, although not so much PvP, but recently received a nerf that now makes him no longer the ideal choice.
Best if bred from Vanilmirth or Amistr.
  • Eira (Scope: PvM, PvP and MVP) - Being one of the unfavorite Homunculi S that doesn't get enough attention, Eira should by no means be ignored. She has a special skill that provides her owner with ludicrous amounts of flee rate temporarily (sets Flee Rate to 500 when mastered), which can make a big difference in a dire situation. And speaking of defeat, Eira can be a great backup. With her resurrection spell, she'll bring her owner back from the dead so that embarrassing trip back to town can be avoided. In other term, Eira is the fastest Loyalty farming Homunculus S ever due to how Overboost can make her hungry really fast. Some of Eira's skills also need certain Loyalty levels, so it's best to breed it from a basic Homunculus that has "Loyalty consuming skills" like Vanilmirth or Filir.
  • Eleanor (Scope: PvM and PvP) - Probably one of the least loved Homunculi S, brings the damage but not much else. This fistcuff lover monk-like cat-lady will brutally beat the heck out of any target in sight, chaining together combo attacks that do decent damage. Not really the best as far as support though, which makes her one of the least used Homunculi S. May have a place in PvP, but then again, some of the other Homuncunuli S skills will prove more useful. She has no area attacks, which makes her fairly useless in PvM except for picking off single targets. Mostly just played for aesthetics though.
Best if bred from Filir.
Best if bred from Filir for PvM. Vanilmirth is a good alternative.

Known Bugs

  • Homunculus skills will cause Homunculi S to freeze for a few seconds if hit while casting, the freeze time is apparently based in ASPD. Geneticists may wish to disable them until the problem diminishes itself as the Homunculus S gains levels.
