    Smile Guide: Solo Farming the Sci-fi Vanity Items in Redsun Pirates

    If you are looking for a fast way to solo farm for the sci-fi vanity items. You should do Redsun map 4 and kill Red Beard McGrieg in the beginning of that map. Just remake the map after killing McGrieg, even if he runs away. It's faster than doing Redsun map 5 (less walking and killing).

    Before attacking McGrieg, you must stay behind or on the line in front of McGrieg so it will prevent you from targeting the bombs or the turrets. ALSO, don't auto-attack or use skills on McGrieg until he attacks you first, it will also keep you from targeting bombs or the turrets.

    Whatever is in these "[ ]" are how many skill points are in that skill.


    Skill Combo for Commandos:
    -With Strength Enh.-
    Kinetic Reservoir[5] (+35 Damage for 2 seconds after effects wears off) and Growing Rage[6] (use those two skills before getting into combat with McGrieg) >> Gravity Well[6] >> Singularity[6] >> Back Breaker[6] >> Auto-Attack
    -Without Strength Enh.-
    Same Combo, but less odds on killing McGrieg before he runs away.

    Skill Combo for Operatives:
    *REMINDER* don't use Flames of Insanity because the boss will run away if used.
    -With Strength Enh.-
    Auto-Attack >> Mind Wrack[6] >> Lurch[1]
    -Without Strength Enh.-
    Precision[6] (use before getting into combat) >> Auto-Attack >> Mind Wrack[6] >> Lurch[1]
    OR
    Precision[6] (use before getting into combat) >> Auto-Attack >> Amplify Pain[6] >> Mind Wrack[6] OR Neural Shock[6]

    Skill Combo for Engineers:
    -With Strength Enh.-
    Pain[6] >> Transference[6]
    Decay[6] >> Wither[6] >>Transference[6]
    -Without Strength Enh.-
    Pain[6] >> Leech[6] >> Transference[6] >> Sonic Boom[6]
    Decay[6] >> Wither[6] >> Leech[6] >> Transference[6] >> Pain[6] (depends on your timing on using this combo)

    Here is a video for people who are still confused on how to do this sci-fi vanity farming. This youtube video was made by TheRajX.

    Thanks to:
    • Bubututu (Afk) because I'm not so great with my commando, so I asked him what skills he used when he farms Redsun map 4.

    • Fantasia for giving me another Operative skill combo.

    • Hellcurse for giving me a very effective Engineer skill combo.

    • Urqui for giving me another Engineer skill combo.

    • TheRajX for making the video, it's very helpful.

    saw you mention this before and have had good success doing this with my op.
    I even got a green shirt after just a few runs.

    The combo I use is Precision >> Auto-Attack >> Amplify Pain >> Mind Wrack OR Neural Shock. All those skills are level 6.

    Thank you for sharing this with everyone!

    Well, I went to try yours, and I believe it works better. That tip for staying behind the line makes a difference too.

    I managed to kill him with lv 40 eng but that was after 16 tries. I think just luck. I tried every combination of skills.

    Never killed him again after that.

    I found a combo that works for level 40 engineer, pretty consistently, but you have to be fast (and make sure all your skills go off).

    Auto attack -> Leech -> Wither -> Decay -> Pain

    Your auto attack kills him before he can run away. I'm nearly full INT and have leech, wither, and decay all maxed and pain at lv 1 and it works for me, might not work for someone with another build but it's possible. I just mapped those four skills in that order and it works almost every time now unless I mess up.

    edit: Actually I take the "you have to be fast" part back. Do each step but don't just fire them off rapidly.. the timing is actually more important than I thought. But it does work, I promise!

    Shoot, done right with a capped and fully geared toon, 5 can be done in less than a minute. Only kill what you need to, the mob at the beginning to open the door and run to the boss. I've done it many times while farming twink gear.

    I found I pretty consistent way to beat him with eng. lv40.

    1- daily elixer on you will decimate him

    2-use tapjoy to get plat and buy strength elix

    Doesn't matter what build just spam skills that do damage, I save transference till he is at a quarter health to get that last chunk gone quickly.

    It is free and I have already got a couple good vanity drops.

    After yesterday, I'm finding that it really depends on timing - and if he's able to dodge at all it gives him time to get away. With just the daily free elixir he dies every time, though.
