Most Stalker type in RO

Posted: Agustus 8, 2010 in All About RO

“Stalkers… What makes them so dominate? versatile? vigorous? …
… They are adaptable to many situations, they are leaders, and are determined to fight to the end.”

- MuchoBomb

Author’s Notes:

- There are way too many possibilites for me to list on the Stalkers stats and skills. I have only put 4 types of builds. I hope they help. Thank you. <3
- The equipments I have put down is mostly for PVP use, the items you should use for PVM is your choice, to become either AGI based (Ghost bandana/Ulles cap, etc.)

There may be some guides on rogues leveling, but this is mostly a Stalker Guide.

Table Of Contents

  1. Pros and Cons
  2. Type of Stalkers and Their Stats
  3. Equipment
  4. Strategy (PVP, PVM)
  5. War of Emperium
  6. Skills
  7. Player VS Player (PVP)
  8. Leveling Guide
  9. Conclusion

1. Pros and Cons - Pro et contra (For and against, derived from Latin)

Pros

  • Versatility (Able to use Daggers, Swords, Bows, Shields, which makes them the perfect killers in PVM and PVP)
  • Able to use any skill desired from the effect of Plagarism and Preserve (Only second class skills)
  • Able to sneak and strip opponents in PVP.
  • Hide effects but more flexible than Assassins / Assassin Crosses.
  • Dominant Flee (Able to reach 300+)
  • Usage of Bows that which enables 100% damage on Small and Medium monsters.
  • Fast levelers with the effect of Plagarism and Preserve which enables various skills to be copied and used for effective leveling.

Cons

  • Unable to MVP effectively
  • Bow builds lack weight and large amount of arrow consumption (Bow users)
  • Lack of HP (depending on what build used)
  • Depending on which build is used, Stalkers are meant for PVP usage (Don’t get me wrong, they can be PVM based as well). For PVP lovers, Stalkers are a way to go.

2. Type of Stalkers and Their Stats


These Stat guides may exceed the level 99 cap, because it is up to the user to choose what kind of build they wanted.

Bow Based Stalkers (DS) – Double Strafe

These Bow Based Stalkers that use double strafe are rare (In PVP). However, in PVM, these are the way to go – These stats are BASE stats.

  • Strength : 1 or None needed unless you have the extra points for the weight capacity for ammunition.
  • Agility : 70~99 for maximum ASPD and Flee. But this changes when VIT comes in an option.
  • Vitality : 20~50 Truly, it is up to the user to recognize which one is more important, more HP or more Flee/Speed.
  • Intelligence : 1~25 This may come in handy for Double Strafe spammers.
  • Dexterity : 99 No excuses.
  • Luck : None (in my case)

Double strafe stalkers are handy in PVM, but in most cases in PVP, they may lack the ability to kill an opponent.

Bow Based Stalkers (BB) – Bowling Bash (Plagiarized + Preserved) and Full Strip

These type of stalkers are most commonly seen in PVP only. However they can be PVM rarely. Full Stripping PVM monsters is rarely done.

  • Strength : 1 or None
  • Agility : 40~70 The ability to dodge most attacks and deal great amount of damage is the unique attributes towards Stalkers.
  • Vitality : 70~90 Having this stat will enable you to reach the 10,000 hp with the proper gears.
  • Intelligence : 1~25 Same for DS, you may need to keep up the spam.
  • Dexterity : 99 No excuses.
  • Luck : None (In my case)

If a bowling bash stalker is correctly used in PVP, you will be able to reach damages you have never thought you can deal with a simple bowling bash (Of course using Full Strip). If you are wanting to PVM with this build, I recommend you just take the Double Strafer build because Bowling Bash is a rare skill to use in PVM (For Stalkers).

Cast Based Stalkers – Plagiarism and Preserve

These stalkers are based on their MATK and are seen in WoE and PVP and PVM.

  • Strength : 1 or None
  • Agility : 1 or None (Unless you are a determined person wanting to find out new tactics)
  • Vitality : 50~80 To be able to survive in any conditions.
  • Intelligence : 99 Max MATK needed.
  • Dexterity : 80~99 Fast cast needed.
  • Luck : None (In my case)

By copying and using skills such as Jupiter Thunder, Storm gust, and any other desired MATK based skills, you will be able (sometimes) to deal more damage and survive longer then High wizards (in some cases).
P.S: You are able to reach instant cast with the help of buffs, gospel and poem of bragi. – Have fun spamming Jupiter thunder.

Support Based Stalkers – Full Strip / Storm Gust / Flying Side Kick (FSK)

I may lack some information on WoE, feel free to correct me. Thanks. These stats include both MATK use and Full Strip tank use.

  • Strength : 1 Unless you intend to carry pots for your team, which is unlikely.
  • Agility : 50~99 Since in my opinion, Agility and Vitality is the best stats for tanking. (Mostly used for Tank use)
  • Vitality : 80~99 Of course, to become tank and survive. (Mostly used for Tank use)
  • Intelligence : 80~99 This is needed for support casters in WoE.
  • Dexterity : 70~99 (Mostly Support Caster based WoE stalkers). There is much controversy on the % of strip chance, but I like to just believe in the 15%.
  • Luck : None (In my case)

Feel free to correct me, but I think this is alright. Of course you can also help by using Remove Trap, which is excellent in getting through hordes of traps. The usage of FSK is also useful, since you can FSK towards enemy Wizard line defence, get devotioned by a Paladin and use the Guild Skill, ‘Recall’. It also removes enemy Soul Link buffs and Zerk pitched zerk pots. (Thank you Bubblegum for this information, and Tea.)

3. Equipment

Other equipment can be used, but in my opinion and my overall experience, I used these (For PVP and PVM).

  • Headgear (Top) : +0~10 Feather Beret (PVP), Apple of Archer (PVP/PVM). Alice Doll[1] (PVP), Ulles Cap[1] (PVM, PVP)
  • Headgear (Middle) : Angel Ears, Evil Ears, Sunglasses[1] (All).
  • Headgear (Lower) : Anything that suits you. Eg. Romantic Flower. (All).
  • Armor : +0~10 Glittering Jacket[1], Valkyries Armor[1], Thief Clothes[1]. Carded with Marc / Evil Druid, or any other card to reduce damage from the particular monster you are VS’ing. (PVM, PVP).
  • Hood : +0~10 Wool Scarf[1] With Raydric Card / Noxious Card / Deviling Card (If you can) (PVP,PVM).
  • Shoes : +0~10 Tidal Shoes[1] With Verit Card / Matyr Card / Green Ferus Card (PVP, PVM).
  • Right Hand : +0~10 Composite Bow[4] With 4x Hydra / 3x Hydra + 1 Skeleton Worker / 2x Hydra + 2x Skeleton Worker. Bazerald for Casters. +10 Composite Bow[4] with any cards that are effective against the type of monster you are against.
  • Left Hand : Valkyries Shield[1] or Orleans Plate[1] With Thara Frog Card / Any other card for any PVM use. (PVP, PVM).
  • Accessories : 2x Glove[1] With 2x Zeroms. Or 2x Orleans Glove[1] with 2x Zeroms. Any other card for any PVM use can be used. (All).

With the Composite Bow as your weapon, there has been much controversy of using a Gakkung instead of a Composite Bow, due to the fact Stalkers have approximately 130 dex but Snipers having 150+. In my point of view, and experience, I have used Triple Bloody Boned Composite Bows, and they seemed to be more effective than Gakkungs. I have put the items for Caster builds, Double Strafe and Bowling Bash into 1 Equipment guide.

4. Strategy

There are many tactical ways of using a Stalker, which makes them versatile.

This strategy is mostly PVP based.

To get into details (into PVP based Bow Bowling Bash users) – Because most stalkers use BB now. Hopefully:

  • You MUST be able to know how to switch gears (Put them on your hotkey bar).
  • You MAY need to know how to BM (Battle Mode /bm) but I didn’t use it.

Switch between your main weapon and a status bow and your shield. The status bow is most likely and better to be a Freeze or Stun or Silence one.
Only 1 Arrow is needed to have the bow change its element, but having more should be better because of the use of status bows. So, it is most likely you should put a Wind Arrow.

If you are confident in your backsliding skills, you should be able to use Backslide, change to a status bow and hit them 1 at a time until they are effected. After silenced, stunned, or frozen, you can go into position and start stripping them. Afterwards, it is your choice what to do next. More extensive information will be on Player VS Player section.

If you are not interested in PVP, but into PVM, it is likely for you to have the build of a Caster or a Double Strafer. If you are a Caster, it will be a nice choice to copy Storm Gust and mob monsters, or Turn Undead and kill some Anubis’. Double strafe of course, you just spam it. More information is shown on the Equipment section (for items) and Leveling Guide (How to level).

5. War of Emperium

To become versatile in WoE (War of Emperiuum), it is best to become a support type.
Support type meaning Casting along side High Wizards, or Close confining where the enemy spawns and stripping them (Full Strip).
You are able to use bowling bash in WoE, it is effective, but it depends what your leader thinks in most cases.

Caster Type is the build for WoE, or a new build which is Support Build which is having stat points into Vitality for maximum survival and agility/dex.
Remove trap is also a nice skill for removing traps which are placed within the Emperium room or any other rooms.

Using FSK (Flying Side Kick) – A skill copied from a Taekwon, can be very good. Especially if you are a leader of a guild with the skill ‘Recall’. The usage of FSK enables you to fly kick towards the enemy line defence (Usually the wizard line) and get past numerous obstacles. FSK also enables you to remove enemy Berserk pitched Berserk pots and Soul Link Buffs. After FSK’ing towards enemy defence, you are able to get devotioned and use the guild skill called ‘Recall’ in order for you to take the castle more effectively. – Thank you Bubblegum.

With the help of Mail breakers / Sword breakers, you will be able to break the opponents armour and weapons. This comes in handy when you are in War of Emperium, with the help of FSK. (Obviously you kick around opponents to break their armours/weapons). Blast accessories (Marina Sphere Card) has also been mentioned to do the same as well.

As I said before, if not, I’ll state it here. Feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

6. Skills

In this section, I will absolutely be very brief due to the length of my post is already long. It will exceed more than the capped amount of course, because it is YOUR CHOICE, it may also not even reach the required amount to transcend to the other job, if so, it means you can put whatever suits you.

Novice:

  • Basic Skills – 9

Thief:

  • Double Attack – Any amount as this is a thief skill (Bows do not work with this)
  • Increase Dodge – 10 No doubt about it.
  • Steal – Hardly of any use unless you like to hunt.
  • Hiding – 5 At least
  • Envenom – 0 Not needed unless you have extra skill points which you will when you are a thief.
  • Detoxify – up to you.

Rogue:

  • Vultures eye – 10 (This is needed for PVM use and PVP if you are a double strafer).
  • Double Strafe – 10 (Obvious – same as above).
  • Sword Mastery – 0~10 If you are a sword based stalker.
  • Remove Trap – 0~1 If you like to WoE.
  • Snatcher – 0~10 If you like to hunt, get it.
  • Steal Coin – 0~10 Needed at least level 2 for Strip.
  • Backstab – 0~4 If you want to get plagiarize/preserve, you must get at least level 4 for Intimidate.
  • Tunnel Drive – 5 If you want chasewalk get level 3 at least.
  • Raid – 5 If you want plagiarize.
  • All Type of Strips – 5 If you want full strip.
  • Intimidate – 5 For Plagiarism.

Stalker:

  • Plagarism – 10 For Preserve.
  • Chase Walk – 1~5 Depending on what you desire. If you are too slow, it won’t be a hassle just to use a soul link.
  • Reject Sword – 1~5 If you have extra skill points remaining
  • Preserve – 1 If you are a caster.
  • Full Strip – 5 Must (Unless you’re PVM type).

I may be missing some skills due to the fact that they are utterly useless or I have accidently missed them. Sorry. As I said earlier, please use ctrl + f for maximum search findings.

7. Player VS Player (PVP)

This is a guide where you will have extensive knowledge on how to PvP each class. Of course lots of people will disagree with my guide, but its what I think. Feel free to correct me.

Lord Knight VS Stalker : Two possibilities, a Spiral’er or a Bowling Basher (Maybe others but I can’t think of any other). Firstly, for Spiral vs Stalker, you must be able to have a fast reflex to dodge their Spiral by using your skill ‘Hide’, but even so if you successfully pull that off, after you come out you will be spiral’d again, so, it is best to equip your thara shield, BUT, you are still able to try and freeze them but you can only shoot ONCE before hiding again (or you will be spiral’d), good luck. Personally, all I can think of is going in for the strip (Feel free to comment on this). If you are VS’ing a bowling basher, prepare to use your Backslide skill and equip your Status bow (Most likely to be a Marina carded one). Backslide, shoot once, backslide, shoot once until they get frozen, If they don’t seem to get frozen, obviously they’re wearing Marc/ED (Most of the times). In this case, good luck, I can’t think of anything else. Go in for the strip.

Paladin VS Stalker : Two possibilities, a Shield Chain’er or a Matyr Reckoning (Sacraficial Ritual) paladin. If you are up against a Paladin itself, don’t bother Double Strafing (if you are a DS’er) unless the Paladin fails. Same as the Spiral Lord Knight tactic, try to hit them once at least before hiding from the shield chain. If it fails, I guess its Full Strip time again. Reject Sword is your best friend VS’ing a Matyr Reckoning paladin, it halves the damage, pretty good. Since they are melee like a bowling basher, you should be able to backslide away from them while trying to status them. If not, put your shield on, reject sword, and go for the Strip.

High Priest VS Stalker : Basic PVP. If he has Marc/ED (Which he probably will have). Just strip and hope your Bowling bash can kill them. Double strafers are utterly hopeless against priests. If you are a bowling basher build, with the Vit you have you won’t be silenced quite often, so go in for the strip and bowling bash as fast as you can, meaning click a tile next to you to successfully pull off the bowling bash spam (Its like the occult impact post somewhere). Otherwise, good luck.

Creator VS Stalker : If they are going to Acid Demonstration you, I got no idea, have fun repairing your items. Nothing to say here.

Champion VS Stalker : If you are VS’ing a cheap champion, he will asura however you can dodge it of course. If he is a decent champion, he will try and kill you by using occult, PPS (Push palm strike) and TSS (Throw spirit sphere). You must have good reflexes because they lose their spheres after trying to hit you with TSS. PPS will always hit you even if you do hide after they use it on you. You are able to use the hit and hide tactic, good luck, though I have never did it myself. In my point of view, I would just go in and try to Bowling bash him as fast as you can. DS’ers, no chance (imo).

Assassin Cross VS Stalker : Three possibilities, Soul breaker, sonic blower or hybrid. Obviously, I would rather not try and use the hit and hide technique on this class, you get hit once without wearing your shield, most likely your hp will be halved by SBK, if they sonic blow you, most likely you will die (Due to some SinX’s using soul link and EDP). If they are SBK type, you can try and DS’ing them as fast as possible or BB’ing them. There is no point in stripping because they still dish out pretty decent damage without their weapons (SBK’ers). Sonic Blowers may be easy at times, but usually hard. If they don’t have much dex, they will miss you. With your BB build or DS, you will easily have 200 flee. You can either try and kill them or strip them. For hybrid SinX’s, Good luck, no comment.

High Wizard VS Stalker : Bowling bash them or DS them, hopefully kill them before they stone curse you or frost diver you. Good luck.

Sniper VS Stalker : Most snipers will have hell loads of flee, making stalkers having a big disadvantage. If you are lucky, you will be able to Bowling bash them, if you are a DS type, no chance unless the sniper is epic fail. If the sniper is a Falcon Assaulter, hopefully you can strip them. You can try and using a status bow (silence/stun) and bowling bash/ds’ing them, hopefully surviving and status’ing them.

WhiteSmith VS Stalker : Only hope for you is to use the shoot and hide technique. If you successfully get them frozen/statused, go in for the Full Strip immediately. If you aren’t able to strip them. They will terminate you quite hard.

Clown/Gypsy VS Stalker : If you are a BB type, you will be able to hit around 2~4 bowling bashes whilst they cast their VA and waiting for the delay to cooldown. Hopefully you can survive 2 VA’s and kill them before they do. If you are a DS type, just stay far, equip your Marc/ED and DS them and hide etc.

Professor VS Stalker : Damn tough, soul burn and you’re screwed unless you pot. Only chance is for you to BB / DS. Probably they will cast Fog, which will make it even more annoying. Good luck really >.>.

Stalker VS Stalker : Finally, Vs’ing your own kind. I have experienced Stalker VS Stalker pvp’s. They will either try and strip you, ds you or bowling bash you. If they attempt to strip you, you go in for the damage. If you have been stripped, you go for the strip, if both of you have been stripped, sit down and have a cup of tea. If the other stalker has higher flee then you, you are at a major disadvantage. Do not bother on the hide and hit technique (unless they are a Saber type).

All Classes VS Stalker (Caster Type) : If you are bothered to gospel yourself and buff yourself (inc. Poem of Bragi). You will be able to reach instant cast with most skills eg. Jupitel thunder. Since jupitel thunder has no delay, you will be able to kill most characters even if they do pot. If you do not have gospel and buffs, hopefully you can just turn support by freezing them with frost diver and stripping them. If not, good luck.

Once again, a lot of you will disagree but this was just my personal experience.

8. Leveling Guide

Personally, I have never grinded my way to 99 soloing. I have either got a leech (Yes, even if I am a rogue), did Quests (Mostly this), or semi grinding.

Quests you can do are:

  • Shadow Quest
  • Curse of Gaelbolg
  • Rachel Sanctuary quests
  • Brunspetti Quest
  • Eye of Helion

Of course some quests have level requirements. Mostly around 50~70.

Level grinding:

Level 20~Any : Geographers one map north of Einbroch. Fire arrow and go nuts. (Just get a bow and some range, and you’ll be fine). Do not use daggers for these, obviously you’ll know why. Power level here we come.

Level 60~99 : Enchanted Peach Trees inside Gonryun Dungeon can get you rich and you will be able to level slowly. If you are a higher level and wanting extra money, you can just use a dagger build and steal/auto steal off them.

Level 70~99 : High Orcs (gef_fild14, 1 Map West of Orc Dungeon) are another way of leveling Stalkers, but I recommend Isilla and Vanberks. If you still want to come here, be my guest, but equip a Water/Crystal Arrow to get maximum damage. If you are a high level maybe you can turn into a Caster Build and Storm gust them. Have fun here.

Level 80~99 : With a decent level, even the most unexperienced Stalkers/Rogues are able to level at Rachel Sanctuary (1 map north of Rachel Town, then enter the Temple and find the entrance on the second floor. Depending on your server you might nave to do quests to get access). Isilla and Vanberks are the monsters you should concentrate on, they are slow, good leveling, and a good money maker. Especially easier if you like to PVP, a PVP weapon will deal more damage (Isilla and Vanberks are demi-human), making it better for you since you don’t have to make another PVM weapon!

Level 80~99 : You can also copy the skill “Claymore Trap” from a Hunter/Sniper and mob up Galions. Just be sure you have agi up at least. (You are able to use this type of leveling even if you are a rogue, just get around level 70+).

Level 85~99 : You can Plagiarize / Preserve Turn Undead and go Anubis in Sphinx 4 or 5. (Most likely only Stalkers are able to do this because they may hit you with sonic blow thus losing ur turn undead skill). You will need an undead armor to copy the skill in PvP.

Level 90~99 : You can either ‘try’ soloing Kasa in Thor’s Volcano, but I recommend you having the proper gear before attempting this due to Kasa’s buffed up Intelligence.

  • The gears include: Jakk carded Garment, Pasana carded Armour, A +10 Composite Bow[4] with cards including Peco Peco Egg, Minorous. These are basically the MUST haves for Kasa leveling. (Trust me, its hard due to Kasa’s buffed up stats).

Sorry for the lack of information if there is anything I missed.

P.S.: Doing quests will enable you to get around level 80~90, on a 10x rate server.

[α] Introduction

About Assassin Cross

Assassin Cross, also known as sinX, is the transcendent class for thieves who have followed the Assassin class path and made it to level 99. SinXs most significant characteristic is the high damage output, generally by using either Sonic Blow or Soul Destroyer. This class also holds the 3rd highest HP bonus in the game, which means they only have less HP than Lord Knights and Paladins. Despite the high HP bonus, sinXs can count on their high flee as means of defense. Assassin Cross also makes good use of critical attacks, as by wearing katar type weapons they get doubled critical rate. SP bonus is decent and high HIT can be achieved by wearing specific gear or simply by having high DEX.
SinXs play an important role in WoEs as the main emperium breakers, among other functions.

Who should play this class?

Assassin Cross best fit players with that:

  • Like to be good on their own
  • Like to do the killing
  • Enjoy WoE

If you have these characteristics, it’s likely that sinX be the Ragnarok Online class that will best suit you.

[β] Preveiw on builds

  • Critical build: Uses katars as weapons in order to double the critical rate. Requires specific critical gear. Works good for PvM and Emperium breaking.
  • Sonic Blow build: Uses katars to deal high damage on a single blow using the Sonic Blow skill. Does great at MvP, PvP and WoE.
  • Double Dagger build: Equips two daggers instead of katars, makes use of Double Attack skill. Good at PvM and Emperium breaking.
  • Soul Destroyer build: Can use either Swords or Katars. Deals high damage on a single blow using a ranged skill, Soul Destroyer. These sinXs differ the most from regular Assassins, as they often have INT as their main stat. Does good at PvM, PvP and MvP.
  • Hybrids: Mix of the pure builds mentioned above. Depending on how they’re build, they can be any combination.

[γ] Skills

About Sonic Acceleration:

Sonic Acceleration does not give a flat +50 Hit. If your status window Hit is 100, using Sonic Blow while having SA will not increase it to 150. SA gives +50% “Hit”, the Hit actually being Accuracy rate. Accuracy rate is the final percentage the game calculates after counting in the player’s Hit Rate and Enemy’s Flee Rate. If the player’s Hit was 100 and the enemy’s Flee is 150, the Accuracy rate is 30%. When the player uses Sonic Blow, Sonic Acceleration increases that 30% chance to 45%.

About Soul Destroyer:

First off, it’s important to have a look at this formula:

  • 1) Soul Breaker Base Damage = Physical Total Damage + {(SkillLV * Player’s INT) * 5} + Random Damage (500 ~ 1000)
  • 2) Final Damage = Soul Breaker Base Damage / Enemy DEF + Soul Breaker Base Damage

It tells us Soul Destroyer damage is based on ATK, INT and an independent random damage value.

About Soul Destroyer:

SD is a ranged skill which includes both magical and physical aspects. It can deal considerable damage on a single hit.

  • Cost 20sp for Lv. 1~5 and 30sp for Lv. 6~10.
  • Cast time: 0.5 sec (can be decrease by dex)
  • After Cast Delay: 1 sec of skill delay at level 1 and 2.8 sec at level 10 (0.8 + 0.2*SkillLV sec). Note that DEX nor any other stat can reduce this delay. Magic Strings will minimize the After Cast Delay. You can not use any skill during the After Cast Delay.
  • Range: 7 cells. (same as magic)
  • Cast is interruptible. Means you might want to have high DEX or use a Phen Card.
  • Can be blocked by Pneuma.
  • Even though this skill is also based on INT, it is not of exclusive use for high INT SD builds, it can be used by any build – at lower damage. Remember, it’s also based on ATK.
  • Does NOT stack with Enchant Deadly Poison

Physical Attack Part:

  • This part of the damage carries weapon element/endow. This means your damage against a fire monster will be increased if you use Water prop. weapon, or decreased if you use Fire prop. Weapon.
  • Is affected by FLEE, therefore you need HIT in order to deal the damage related to this part of the skill. Against high FLEE enemies you might want to use Mummy or Howard Alt-Eisen cards.
  • Does not carry effect of status cards (ex: savage babe, planton, etc) but will activate certain weapon skills, such as Ogre’s Toenail or Inverse Scale.
  • Weapon ATK receives size penalty. This is why you should use swords or katars, daggers deals 75% to medium and 50% to large size. If you have an ice pick or a combat knife, however, this is not relevant enough to stop you from using them.
  • Not affected by cards that increase the damage by a % (ex: hydra card, vadon card, etc). Affected by +ATK cards (ex: Andre card, Zipper Bear card, etc)
  • Right and Left hand masteries do not affect damage. Katar masteries do.
  • Affected by enemy’s DEF and VIT DEF.

Magical Attack Part:

  • It’s NOT neutral element. It’s basically elementless. This means the damage related to the magical part will not be affected by any element; fixed to 100%, not higher, not lower.
  • Never miss. Therefore does NOT depend on your HIT and enemy’s FLEE. Will be blocked by pneuma anyway, though.
  • Based on INT, not on MATK.
  • Not affected by cards that increase the damage by a % (ex: hydra card, vadon card, etc). Not affected by +ATK cards (ex: Andre card, Zipper Bear card, etc). Not affected by +MATK cards. Can only be helped by +INT gear.
  • Ignores DEF, VIT DEF and MDEF (all kinds). Decreased by gear such as Feather Beret, Poo Poo Hat, Thara Frog card, Combat Knife, etc.

Enchant Deadly Poison:

  • This is certainly the most powerful Assassin Cross, principally when combined with Sonic Blow.
  • It’s generally used in important situations such as WoE, MvP and decisive PvP. Can also be used on some leveling spots.
  • Stacks with Sonic Blow and Grimtooth.
  • Does NOT fade when you die.
  • Does NOT fade when you change weapon.
  • Can NOT be dispelled.
  • Does NOT change your attack prop. to poison!

[η] Leveling

As a Thief or High Thief

.:If you have access to a stat resetter and a friend to help you out a little, then the fastest option for leveling would be have your friend tank you some Anubis while you use Yggdrasil leaf to kill them. If you can not do this, then follow the guide below:.

Lv. 1~thief: Training grounds is the best option. As for high novice, I suggest Culvert 1.

Job1 ~ Lv.20: Culvert 1 and 2. (get improve dodge and double attack)

Lv.20~Lv.35: Pyramids 1 or Payon Dungeon 1. Poporings (zombies too if you’re in payon dun 1).

Lv.35~Job40: Lhz_fild01 (one map north from Lightalzen) or ein_fild07 (three maps south from Yuno). Metalings.

Job40~Job50: I suggest you make a mage or an archer to leech yourself at ra_fild01, killing muscipulars. It’s just not worth leveling these job levels as a thief alone. However, if you want to do it on your own, using your thief/thief high, I suggest killing Leaf Cats.

As Assassin or Assassin Cross

.:Make yourself a Priest. You gonna need one to Buff and Warp yourself, leveling will be slow without one.
.:Again, if you have chance to get a friend to help you at Anubis, I suggest you go there to get your first job levels:.

Job1~Job17: Metalings or Muscipulars again, just so you get these first job levels. Put your skill points in katar mastery 4, sonic blow 5 and cloaking 2 to unlock grimtooth. Now 5 points in grimtooth to max it.

Job17~Lv.80: Moc_fild16 (this is the same map as Assassin Guild). Mob the Sandman and kill them using grimtooth (remember to have either a stun or a curse arrow equipped). Save the Katar of Quaking you may get, you’ll need them later.

OR: Do the Curse of Gaebolg (Founding of the Nation Myth Quest), then the Medicine quest, thenBiological Weapon Quest, then Lost Child Quest and finally Rachel Sanctuary Quest. Depending on the rates you’re playing on this will you take you to a level higher than than 80, at 10x it’s close to 90. There are other quests that reward you with experience, but I do not really recommend them as means of leveling at this point.

80~99: At this point you’ll need to make your leveling weapons. There are two basic options:

  • 3x Drainliar Card in a Jur[3] – Level at Zenhai Marsh (cmd_fild03, three maps east from Comodo) mobbing Anolians. This is the standard recommendation, every Assassin should do this at some point.
  • 3x Peco Peco Egg Card in a Jur[3] – Level at Juperos Dungeon 1 by mobbing Venatus. Leveling here is much harder than at Anolians, but if you can make it work out, you should be getting nice money from loot and a good amount of eluniums. (Certain news on Gravity update pointed out Venatus now can teleport thus making this method useless. You are recommended to try it out on your server before building the weapon.)

Advanced Leveling Spot Options

  • Lightalzen Dungeon 3 (biolab, quest guide here) – Requires: Boned Infiltrator, Poison Bottles, Cursed Waters, Royal Jellies and Soul Linker. Keep your Enchant Deadly Poison up all the time, fly wing around looking for the High Wizards and the High Priests (not assumptio’ed), one hit them using Sonic Blow. Watch for the Lord Knights and Assassin Cross, they’re demon and will see you despite cloaking. Depending on the server you can lure monsters out of HW’s fixed spawn spots and camp. .:This place is risky, get ready for dying a few times. Job exp is amazing. Base exp is great:.
  • Thor 1 - Requires: Triple Beholder (3x Peco Peco Egg card) Jur[3], Pasana carded armor, Jakk carded garment, Poison Bottles, Royal Jellies, Soul Linker, Endow Water and a very specific build (110 or more STR, 110 or more DEX, rest goes on vit). Fly wing around the map, use Sonic Blow combined with EDP to one-hit the Kasas. *If your damage isn’t one-hitting 100% of the time, you might need to use Blacksmith buffs.
  • Abbey 3 (at the center of Namelss Island) - Requires: Triple Boned (3x Skeleton Worker card) Jur[3], Poison Bottles, Soul Linker and Priest to aspercio. It’s common that even EDP’ed, Linked and aspercio’ed you can’t one-hit the Necromancers, you can still do this place, just use a grimtooth before Sonic Blowing. 130 STR is enough for 100% one-hitting though, but this might require you use STR food.

Other Leveling Spots

  • Abbey Sanctuary 1: Banshees. Use either an Inverse Scale or a Triple Hallowed (3x Santa Poring card) Jur[3] and aspercio, kill one by one using Sonic Blow, when linked, or in small mobs using grimtooth. Requires: Evil Druid carded armor.
  • Abbey Sanctuary 2: Mob and use grimtooth to kill. Inverse Scale is a good option for weapon. Watch out for Flame Skulls, they can see you through hide.
  • (North) Comodo Dungeon: Dual Dagger/SD build, using ice pick and quad titan (4x minorous card) main gauche[4].
  • (West) Comodo Dungeon: Make small mobs of Medusas, use grimtooth, or kill one by one using SB.
  • Clock Tower B4 (alde_dun04): Bathories. Keep the witched starsand. Card should sell well too.
  • Clock Tower 2 (alde_dun02): Clocks. Mostly for eluniums. Use Triple Beholder Jur[3] and endow fire. Kill using Sonic Blow. Don’t walk, fly wing/teleport.
  • Einbench Dungeon 2: Using a high dex build or mummy cards, one-hit the Teddy Bears by using either SD or SB.
  • Geffenia: By far the best money. Requires Ice Pick and aspercio. Use SD to one-hit Incubbus and Sucubbus. Kill the Abysmal Knights for the cards, if you like.
  • Glast Heim: One-hit Raydrics using SD, Inverse Scale is a good option for weapon. Mob Ridewords and kill using MA (good job exp). Kill Abymal Knights using SD. Use low-level SD followed by level 10 SD to kill wanderers. One-hit Stings using SD or SB and a fire weapon/endow.
  • Gonryun Dungeon 1: Peach Trees. Mostly for the Royal Jellies, either for WoE or for selling. Use either SD or SB, you should be able to one-hit the Peach Trees with both. Use Endow Blaze (fire endow), or a fire weapon.
  • Ice Dungeon 3: If you have an Ice Pick this is a nice place. Use Dual Dagger/SD build and Endow Tornado (wind endow).
  • Juperos 2: Apocalipse. Again, if you have ice pick and a quad titan (4x minorous card) main gauche[4].
  • Louyang Field: One-hit using SD.
  • Magma Dungeon 2: Mob and kill using Meteor Assault. Bring a High Priest friend.
  • Niffheim Field 01: Mob the Disguises and the other monsters on the map and kill them using Meteor Assault. Daggers like Moonlight Dagger and Fortune Sword will be of great help.
  • Pyramids B2: Mob Ancient Mummy, kill using grimtooth. Watch out not to overmob Arclouses. Inverse Scale is a good option here.
  • Pyramids 4: Mob everthing, kill using grimtooth. Bring ice katar and inverse scale. *If you only want the money you get from selling loot in this place, use triple flammable (3x vadon card) jur[3] and endow tsuname (water endow) instead.

Feel free to use other cards if you prefer. I would say Maya Purple is the best choice, but since it isn’t a very common card, I didn’t add it to the guide.

    [ι] Poison Bottle Creation

    Formula

    • Success Rate = Base Rate + [ (Base Rate * DEX/50) + (Base Rate * LUK/100) ]
    • Base Rate is assumed to be at 20%.
    • Simplified: Success Rate = 20% + (0.4% DEX) + (0.2% LUK)

    Ingredients

    Click here for the item needed to make Poison Bottle

    • * Berserk Potion: The Tool Dealers in Comodo and Lighthalzen sell these.
    • * Venom Canine: Dropped by Boas, Anacondaqs and Side Winders. They spawn in large quantities at Sograt Desert 13.
    • * Cactus Needle: Dropped by Mukas. The best places to hunt them are Sograt Desert 18 and Sograt Desert 06.
    • * Bee Sting: Dropped by Hornets. The best places to hunt them are Prontera Field 00 and Mt. Mjolnir 04.
    • * Poison Spore: Dropped by Poison Spores. The best places to hunt them are Payon Forest 05 and Mt. Mjolnir 07.
    • * Empty Bottle: Dropped by different monsters. It is best to gather them from Mukas so as to harvest two ingredients at once. Goats drop them at the highest rate and are found on Einbroch Field 06 and Juno Field 06. Ant Eggs in Ant Hell 1 and Removers in Somatology Laboratory 1 are also viable options.
    • * Karvonidailrol: Only dropped by four monsters and at somewhat low rates. Poison Spores are the easiest to hunt. Removers are another option. A third option is the Biochemist skill Cultivate Plant, which at level 1 summons a Red Mushroom or a Black Mushroom by chance using one Mushroom Spore. Red Mushrooms drop these at 0.5%.

    Increasing the Success Rate

    1. Decent base DEX and LUK. Blessing. (+10 DEX) Gloria. (+30 LUK) Marionette Control. (skill of Clown/Gypsy) Battle Chant. (+20 stats)
    2. Equipments: Apple of Archer (+3 DEX), Lucky Mantle (+2 LUK), Quad Dexterous Knife x2 (+8 DEX), Crystal Pumps (+5 LUK), Nimble Gloves x2 (+8 DEX)

    Tips

    • * Wear the equipments above and get Blessing only after Marionette Control has been casted on the player to get the full DEX bonus.
    • * Have a Priest standby to Heal the player when Create Deadly Poison fails.
    • * Make use the Bard skill Magic Strings to reduce Create Deadly Poison’s cast delay thus speeding up brewing.
    • * Only brew when either a Priest or a Minstrel/Gypsy can assist so Karvonidailrols won’t be wasted.

    [κ] PvP

    Basic Strategies

    • * Cranial Swapping: This is a very important trick. SinXs are somewhat fragile if they don’t have their valkyrja’s shield equipped, and you don’t want that. So the idea is to keep your cranial valk shield equipped the most time possible. So here’s what you have to do: Put your infiltrator (or double bloody boned elemental katar) in a hotkey, do the same to your valkyrja’s shield and any combat knife you have(Assassin Daggers and Cowardice Sword are good substitutes). Make sure these hotkeys are close to your Sonic Blow hotkey. Put on your weapon and use the sonic blow skill, as soon as you use it, press the valk shield and combat knife hotkeys. If you done it right, your sonic blow animation will show as if you were using the sonic blow bare handed or with a knife.
    • * Hide when skills are casted at you, this will cause the opponent’s skill to fail, and you’ll take no damage.
    • * Watch for the the element your opponent is using. If he uses Enchant Poison or a Cursed Water, change your armor to Evil Druid.
    • * Watch for your opponent element resistances. If you’re doing too little damage on your attacks, you might as well want to try endowing your weapon with a different prop. Few options: Enchant Poison (poison), Endow Scrolls (water/fire/earth/wind), Cursed Water (shadow). Keep in mind Valkyrja’s shields add resistance to: water, fire, shadow and undead. Marcs and Tidals add resistance to water. Evil Druid, Bathory and Argiope add resistance to shadow and poison. Blacksmith/Whitesmith have natural resistance to fire and Crusaders/Paladins to Holy. Best props to endow are, therefore, often Earth and Wind.
    • * If you’re using SD and you’re dealing little damage to an opponent who might have FLEE, you might be missing. Put on your +HIT weapons.
    • * If you’re using SD, you can use magnum break (marine sphere card in an accessory will grant you this skill) to push your enemy off pneuma.

    [λ] WoE

    .:Assassin Cross plays an important role in War of Emperium, this is probably when the class shows your full potential:.

    WoE Mechanics

    • * All skill based damage with the exception of Gloria Domini and Gravitational Field is reduced by 40%.
    • * All physical (non-skill based) attacks are reduced by 30%.
    • * All long-range attacks are reduced by 25%. This does not stack with long-range skill attacks (these are just reduced by 40%).
    • * Upon entering a new room in a WoE map, the player is given 5 seconds of invulnerability. This invulnerable status is forfeited as soon as they use an item, cast a skill, or move.
    • * All Hunter traps last 4 times as long in WoE.
    • * You cannot ‘lock on’ to players using CTRL+Click. Instead you should click and hold the mouse button.
    • * Pushback is disabled. (ex: The push-back effect of Bowling Bash.)
    • * Phen Card’s ‘immune to spell interruption’ property does not work. However, skills with a cast time that cannot be interrupted will not lose this ability (unless they are Spell Broken).
    • * The Emperium is invulnerable to skill-based damage with the exception of Gravitational Field and Gloria Domini

    The basics

    • * Get used to battlemode (/bm). Use it, at least, for gear changing.
    • * ALWAYS bring potions with you. Condensed white potions and royal jellies are recommended.
    • * Always have a few panaceas with you.
    • * Before leaving town, try feeling your inventory to 89% weight, with everything you’ll need (pots, jellies, panaceas, extra armors, extra weapons, etc)
    • * Always have stun arrows with you, they’ll provoke stun on the enemies when you grimtooth them.
    • * EDP is essential in WoE, make sure you have enough Poison Bottles for the whole WoE duration.
    • * Don’t forget you’ll need Assassin Spirit in WoE too.
    • * Make sure you’ll keep your cranial valk equipped for the longest time possible, if you don’t have it on you might as well die faster than you could possibly pot.
    • * Here’s a useful tip. Bring two different kinds of potions, lets say condensed white, royal jelly and alloe leaflet that’s 3 hotkeys for you to spam in order to pot up your HP really fast (:

    Attacking

    • * If you are soloing, try sticking around an attacking guild (in cloaking, so they don’t see you) and wait until they invade the enemy’s defense line. Enchant Deadly Poison and sneak through towards the emperium, break it.
    • * If you’re attacking with your guild, try not staying in the front line (unless you’re too hardcore, or unless you’re going to be recalled in case your guild made through but you died) because your guild will need you alive to break the emperium. Enchant Deadly Poison and sneak through towards the emperium as soon as a path is open. Break it.
    • * Okay, you are attacking, but you’re not even close to emperium yet and there are already enemies attacking you and your guild. In this case, you should enchant deadly poison and fight using sonic blow. You can also Grimtooth lines of wizards.

    Emperium Breaking

    • * Breaking time with Ice pick on the right hand and 2x Orc skeleton + 2x desert wolf is often around 3~6seconds, using EDP and Cursed Water.
    • * Breaking time with criticals, using the appropriate jur with orc skeleton cards, should be around 10~16seconds, using EDP and Cursed Water.
    • * Breaking with Ice Pick on the right hand and Cranial Valkyrja’s Shield is around 8~16 seconds, using EDP and Cursed Water.
    • * Useful tip is to equip an accessory with Errende Ebecee card when you’re next to the emperium, once the pneuma gets casted, it will block the cast of SWs on the emp.

    Defending

    • * Assassin Cross can help on the first defense line using EDP and grimtooth (I recommend curse arrows).
    • * Assassin Cross can help on the last defense line, standing by the emperium and using EDP + Sonic Blow on any enemy who approaches (this is specially recommended for guild leader Assassin Cross)
    • * SinX can move outside the defense line as soon the enemy storms in, in order to kill the more fragile classes, like wizards, who are generaly left behind during invasion.
    • * Soul Destroyer builds can stand in Magic Strings along with the wizards and spam SD on the incoming enemies.
