Summary

STR – are for Rogue classes or classes that doesn’t need much critical rating because they can get it from somewhere else. Wugushi skills also doesn’t crit.

DEX – are essential for all builds that needs crit. Evasion is also good for physical attacks but it doesnt do anything for magic attacks.

CON – basically for everyone who are dying too fast. Consider putting some here to survive longer

SPR – very rare but this can be useful for some builds that require a lot of mana. (Mostly for Spammer types like Scout C3 or Fletcher). This can be conpensated by buying high level mana pots created by Alchemits in the market. (might be costly right now (4/12/16) depending on server)


Full STR

Does the most min-max damage.

High STR

Does very good min-max damage with lesser crit chance but higher crit damage.

Hybrid STR/DEX

Does good min-max damage w/ consistent crit damage & rate.

High DEX

Does decent min-max damage w/ very good crit rate but weaker crit damage. High dex builds are good for builds that has high raw output scaling damage from their skills since you don’t really need min-max (such as Split Arrow, Magic Missle, etc).

Full DEX

Has insane critical rates but not very good min-max damage neither critical damage. Same applies for full dex, need high output raw damage skill .

**Consider no more than 100 CON for survivability, 30-80 CON seems reasonable or no CON at all for glass-cannon builds.
**Also only consider no more than 60 SPR if you plan on taking a bit of SPR as I believe that is enough.



Hidden Mechanics

  • Multishot is a hidden AoE skill. With extra AoE ratio through equip you will hit multiple enemies per shot. With circling = unlimited then.
  • Punji stake (semi hidden) can wipe out a group of mobs. As the 50% flung dps, scales with amount of enemies. Circling helps here too. Linking even more.
  • Feint + Barrage shot = 10~ hits (hidden mechanic, not a bug)
  • Capture can capture broomtrap and lots of other skills. If you have two rouges.. you can tandem these and up the count to max 15 traps. But CD is high.
  • Decay = missle bonus damage
  • Claymore hits twice (thought it was 1 hit and 3 line hits … but tested that with oracle. It’s two cone hits. Could be changed)
  • Backstab + Karcha set = 3 times damage from behind (semi hidden)
  • Damage of traps is calculated when they explode/hit. Kneeling will apply to them and other things too.
