I. Intro:
First
of all, this is my very first guide. I made this guide basically
because there are no current and up to date guides about a s/s hybrid
nuker, and as my favorite class, I want to make one. I could choose to
hide my build because I love it, but this game isn’t that difficult
after you play it for a while, and there are hardly any secrets...
THIS IS MY VERY FIRST GUIDE, AND IM SORRY IF YOU DONT LIKE IT, BUT IF YOUR GOING TO FLAME, ID RATHER YOU JUST DIDNT COME IN.
Please
do crticize my guide and give me feedback, good and bad so i can
improve and update it, give your opinion and thoughts, but do it all in
a civilized manner.

For planning purposes, extra help with balances, sp, farming and just character planning in general, see http://www.nivlam.com

As
this is, this entire guide is solely MY INFORMATION. I have not taken
anything from anyone else unless otherwise noted. If need be I will add
a credits section to give credit to those who help me with my guide,
but as of the first post of this topic, it is all from my own head.
Scary eh?

So, Why be a hybrid S/S nuker?
Because
with the new introduction of snow shield, combined with being a hybrid,
you can tank like your on steroids, while dealing out super damage.
Good hp, blocking, good def, snow shield, whats not to love?

So,
I am a lvl 80 hybrid int s/s nuker, I was originally a spear user, but
decided on sword/shield because I want block, extra defense to stay
alive…and kd with quadruple stabs at lvl 90

IMO,
I have a really good build for lvl 80 and 90, and this guide will be
divided into a lvl 80 and a lvl 90 build.I have tried to include sp
amounts to make this guide as helpful as possible, there is both a MAX
sp count, and more economical version in areas where it can apply.

My current build is:
80bicheon
80lightning
80fire
60ice

this is my suggested build for lvl 80 and below is basically why I chose these things.

II. LVL 80 Bicheon
Bicheon: mastery from 0-80 is going to cost 44,826 sp
Bicheon tree is your main pvp skill with some offset skills to help in grinding. It’s also very fun to use.
I’ll start from top to bottom on a comprehensive discussion for each series.

Smashing Series:


Until
lvl 80, it was a useless skill to have. Now that Flying Stone Smash has
a chance to cast bleed onto someone, it becomes useful. I will confess,
my fully farmed 80 DOES NOT have this series, but I really do wish I
did. Bleed will cast damage over time, and also reduces the defense of
the opponent slightly, very useful if casted. It can be pilled off with
new pills, but they have a 20 sec delay and not everyone will have
them. Worth a shot.
Maxing this series will cost you 18,988 sp
Getting only lvl 1 of flying stone smash, so u can just use the status will cost you 10,330 sp

Chain Sword Attack Series:


Useless
in pvp until lightning chain, but helpful in grinding because a chain
will do more damage than a nuke, its just split up into 4-6 hits
instead of one hit. Lightning chain is your goal because of the status
effects. It can randomly cast:
-Impotent-reduces the damage dealt by the opponent
-Bleed-does DoT and slightly reduces opponents defense
-Division-greatly reduces opponents defense
(with
bleed and division, my +7 sword is capable of 11-13k average on a str
glaiver, max ever was 15k on a lvl 80 glaiver. Again, useful for the
status effect.
Maxing this series will cost you 40,277 sp
Excluding the chains not needed for lightning chain and lightning chain remaining at lvl 1: 11,863 sp

Shield Technique series:


Castle
shield and IronWall shield are VERY USEFUL!!!! GET THEM!!! They
basically increase your phy defense for 15 seconds, super useful when
your getting hammered by str chars. Mountain shield and Giant shield
IMO are a waste of sp, haven’t found much of ANY use for them except
eating sp.
SP cost for castle shield and iron wall: 13,685 sp

PostSubject: Re: [BUILD] Hybrid S/S   Sun Mar 08, 2009 6:52 am

Blade Force Series:


Agro mobs onto you, fun to pwn noobs with, but no real super use IMO.
Sp cost: 18,182sp recommended:0

Hidden Blade Series:


Your
bread and butter, but so much tastier. Its simple really, just use it,
and it has a chance to KD people, once they are on the ground you can
follow up with stabs.
SP cost: 36,902 sp, no cut backs here.

Killing Heaven Blade Series:


You
use this series to stab enemies that you have knocked onto the ground,
super effective in pvp, again a skill to love. Starts out one stab,
then another single stab, then a double stab. (another double stab at
lvl 90) and u can use 2 stab skills while an opponent is on the ground,
unless your lagging. >.<
Sp cost: 20,120sp No cut backs here.

Sword dance series:

Just
like blade force series but it hits multiple people, Useless for you
except to agro mobs over. My recommendation is to get lvl 1 snake sword
dance and lvl 1 petal sword dance so you can use them, but not waste sp
on them.
Suggested sp: 729 sp

Shield Protection Series (passive)

This
is your bicheon passive, it makes you block more, nuff said, max it and
never even think of not maxing ANY passive u have mastery lvls of.
SP to max: 5,844 sp no cut backs!

III. LVL 80 Lightning

Lightning: mastery from 0-80 is going to cost 44,826 sp
Lightning
is a must for all int based characters, because every skill within it
is essential to magical based attacks and characters.

Thunder Force Series: (imbue)

At
lvl 80 I use fire imbue instead, but don’t move on so quickly, you will
be using this imbue at lvl 90 most likely, so you can up it now or
wait. It looks awesome with bicheon skills too .
Also, the splash given by the lightning imbue will transfer status
effects from your lightning chain bicheon skill. Lightning imbue will
shock the enemies, which reduces their parry ratio, therefore they take
harder hits, but its almost always pilled off or resisted due to
immunity.
Sp to max: 21,769sp

Piercing Force Series:

Increases your magic damage done, what else do you need? MAX IT!!!! NO CHOICES HERE!
Sp cost: 5,892 sp

Wind Walk Series:

This
offers both moving speed when you run, but also a ghost walk in which u
move super fast, near instantaneously to a distance away. Starting at
10meter and capping at 22meters at lvl 80, it is very usefull. Max
grasswalk + ghost walk will be faster than the outdated lvl 60 horse.
Sp to max the whole series: 25,521 sp no cut backs here

Lion Shout series:

Not
used much in pvp unless your one shotting a noob…dam you noob killers.
But its amazing for grinding because it’s a super quick attack with
good power, better than overkilling a mob by 7k damage with a nuke and
wasting 3 more secs of casting time. Looped over many mobs, you saved
yourself A LOT of time.
Sp to max: 20,082sp No cut backs here either.

Concentration series:

It
increases your parry ratio which will help you to take less damage from
enemies, who doesn’t wana live longer? GET IT! Although at the higher
lvls its increase in parry slows dramatically. Recommended to max it,
but not maxing it by 2 lvl will save u some sp and only lose 1 parry,
for a total of 30.
Sp to max: 14,058
Economical cut: 9,647 sp (you lose 1 parry but gain 4.5k sp )

Thunderbolt Force Series:

Highly
effective nuke, It bounces in a 10m range to hit multiple foes max of
3, great for grinding and group fights. Max this because this will be a
huge damage dealer at lvl 80, and your main damage nuke at lvl 90.
Sp to max: 21,725

Hevean’s Force Series (Passive):

Passive that increases your parry ratio..helps you take less damage, and it’s a passive, so its foolish not to max it.
Sp to max: 5,844

IV. LVL 80 Fire

Fire: mastery from 0-80 is going to cost 44,826 sp
At
lvl 80, fire is a possible use, but will be likely dropped at 90 . Fire
offers you massive damage with the nukes and imbue, and status
immunity, and mag defense, plus phy damage buff which will help your
damage when u crit/hit with bicheon skils.

Fire Force Series:

The
highest damage imbue with a status effect of burn, that does DoT, but
can be pilled off. I Almost always use this imbue at lvl 80 because of
its sheer power. Max it.
Sp to max: 21,769

Fire Shield Series:

Reduces
the effect lvl of status’ like burn and electric shock, and most
importantly, freeze. Max this and combined with good blues on jewelry,
you will be immune to everything. I have not used a single pill in like
5 months because my jewelry always keeps me immune.
Sp to max: 6,817

Flame Body Series:

Increases
your physical attack. Useless to help your nukes, but you’re a hybrid,
and in pvp or against mobs your going to use bicheons skills, so
physical damage increase DOES HELP, especially when you crit.
Sp to max: 5,033
Lvl 1 of the third book in this series (only 7% increase): 7,286 (not recommended but available)

Fire Protection Series.

Increases
your magical defense. Every Chinese character does a large amount of
magical attack, even pure strs. So this is extremely useful, especially
against those dam nukers.
Sp to max: 20,082 sp

Fire Wall Series:

Make a wall of fire that will absorb magical damage. IMO, totally useless and a waste of sp
Sp cost: 0

Addition:
Some noob wizard thinks hes a hot shot cuz he can use invisible and is
too afraid for a little 1 on 1? Pop a fire wall and his first hit is
worthless. Enough time hopefully to kill him before he kills you.

Flame Wave Series:

The
fire nukes, extremely powerful and deadly. You need to max the first
book to get the fourth book, and the second book is the most powerful
nuke until lvl 77+ when the 3rd book, Flame Wave Wide, if your
strongest nuke by far. Flame Wave bomb, the new and fourth book in this
series, is a bit of a weaker nuke, but its cast time is super fast,
making it useful for a quick kill on a lower lvl, a horse running by,
or a good finisher on a mob.
Sp to max: 58,728 sp

Fire Combustion series:

Reveals
invisible and stealth players, such as the rouge and wizard. Or you can
just use the potions from the NPC in town. I do not have this skill
because my sp was better suited elsewhere.
Sp to max: 11,564
Alternative: 0 sp

Flame Devil Force Series: (passive)

Increases your physical damage. Helpful in pvp when your using bicheon skills and especially when you crit.
Sp to max: 5,844

V. LVL 80 Cold

Although it says lvl 80 Cold, your mastery is only going to be 60 when you are lvl 80, hence, lvl 80 cold.

Cold: mastery from 0-60 is going to cost 12,764 sp
I
leave cold at lvl 60 because IMO the more damage from fire at 80 is
better. Lvl 60 cold is its biggest boost so far in stats, so ice from
lvl 1-59 is out of the picture, its a waste of sp and mastery skills to
have it anything below. Lvl 60 allows a nice def buff from the passive
and cold armor, and the ice shield will do a 40% absorbtion, which is
more than enough atm.

Cold Force Series:

Don’t
use this imbue, fire or lightning outshine this imbue any time. People
like it for grinding, but mobs are weak and theres no need to freeze
them since you’re a nuker and should kill them off exceptionally fast.
Sp: 0

Frost Guard Series:

Buff that increases your physical defense. Relatively low and weak until lvl 60 where it will get a big increase.
Sp to lvl 60: 6,422

Cold Wave Attack series:

Adds
cold effect to targets. Usless or just a little fun for now, but
potential at higher lvls where immunity to effects will become harder
and harder since fire shield stop getting lvls.
Recommended Sp for now: 0

Frost Wall Series

Puts up a wall of ice that absorbs physical damage, IMO its useless, just like Fire Wall is, so i suggest no points be added.
Sp: 0

Addition:
With euros out, fire wall and Ice wall are no longer totally useless.
Some noob rouge running around thinking hes a hot shot in invis? Pop up
any ice wall and his first attack is useless against you. Enough time
to locate him, phantom and kill hopefully.

Frost Nova Series:

Fun
to use because if someone isn’t immune, they can get frozen before
pilling it off and it will interrupt them. Useful later on as immunity
to ice will become harder to get.
Recommended now: lvl 1 of each book: 416 sp

Snow Storm Series:

Your
ice nukes, at lvl 60 they are extremely weak since your lvl 80, and
have no use until lvl 90 when ice will become a maxed mastery.
Sp for now: 0
or get lvl 1 of each book: 612 sp

Snow Shield Series:

Absorbs damage and reduces mana instead. At lvl 60 it will offer you a 40% absorbtion. Plenty until lvl 90 comes.
Sp to max to 60: 4,061

Cold Armor Series: (passive)

Passive that increases your physical defense, very useful especially when a str glaiver crits you.
Sp to max to 60: 1,680

VI. Lvl 80 Gear


Almost
forgot, what are you going to wear?! Can’t go out naked now can you.
Obviously your going to be using a sword and a shield. At least +5’ed
when your capped. Crit IS important on your sword, because crits on kds
hurt and could make you win that much faster. Accessories and weapons
should go without saying, its mainly the body you need to be concerned
with. At lower lvl grinding, garments more than suffice, at 60+
grinding, armor comes in handy, then in the 8th degree use a combo of
armor and protector, finishing your tier off with full protector set.
You can get by with 8th degree garms, but it is still extremely tough
against str players. However, I will admit I DO wear garms…..i sold all
my sosun protector >.<. I always thought a str glaiver would pwn
me in my +4 garms, but I have yet to find a glaiver up to the challenge.

These are pics of my sword and shield. All hand crafted by me, and my stones.



VII. LVL 90 Intro

At 90, I suggest, for now:
90bicheon
90light
90ice
30fire/heuk/pacheon

Above
in the lvl 80 guide, I have already explained the use of the skills, so
here, unless there is something new, I will just give you the sp cost
for lvl 80-90 or 60-90 for cold.

VIII.LVL 90 Bicheon

Bicheon: sp for lvl 80-90: 29,680
Bicheon will become even better at lvl 90, there is a new kd and a new stab, and you can now do a QUINTUPLE STAB!!! (5 stabs).

Smashing series: From maxed (lvl 5) to maxed lvl 90 (lvl 10) costs 15,104 sp

Lightning chain from lvl 80-90 costs 15,104 sp

Iron Wall: costs 8,746 sp

Blade Force Series: 15,629sp

Hidden blade series (both the 3rd and 4th books): 24,798

Killing Heaven Blade Series (both the 3rd and 4th stabs): 9167

Shield Protection Series (Passive): 3,547

IX. LVL 90 Cold

Cold:lvl 60-90 costs 61,742 sp
Huge boost in buffs from lvl 60 to 90, but this tree is gona be expensive because it’s a 30 lvl increase instead of only 10.

Frost Guard Series:31,556 sp

At
lvl 80, we left Cold Wave Attack and Frost Nova Series empty or
releatively empty. However, now at lvl 90, the fire shield buff is
still only lvl 69, and therefore ice immunity, or any immunity becomes
harder. Granted it can be pilled off, if they have pills, but freezing
an opponent will interrupt them, even if for only a second, and could
potentially save your life. Plus who knows, could come in handy for
grinding.

Cold Wave Attack Series: 25,712sp

Frost Nova Series: 47,514 sp

Snow Storm Series:
Now that you no longer have fire nukes, your going to need these nukes for grinding.
Sp cost: 66,462 (0->90)

Snow Shield Series: 19,671 sp

Cold Armor Series (Passive): 6,985 sp

X. LVL 90 Lightning

Lightning: 29,680 sp to go from lvl 80-90

Thunder Force Series:
Lvl 0-90: 36,873
Lvl 80-90: 15,104

Piercing Force Series: 3,336

Wind Walk Series: 12,188

Lion Shout Series: 15,104

Concentration Series: 9378 sp

Thunderbolt Force Series: 12,293sp

Heavens Force Series (Passive): 3,547 sp

XI. LVL 90 Fire

Even though it says lvl 90 fire, your going to have lvl 0 fire, but this is the plan in this guide for your fire tree at lvl 90.

Now
here is the rather annoying part about this build, deleveling fire.
Your gona miss it, I know, but I gotta get rid of it. Luckily, this is
extra sp for you. And don’t worry, it wont cost too much gold…I hope 

Fire,
as it is now, pimped in skills up to lvl 80, costs 163,106 sp. Using
skill potions from the item mall will get you that much sp, however,
using curst hearts will give you 80% of that sp. I highly sugest, if
its possible, to use item mall potions for the high lvls of fire, then
finish it with curst hearts. I plan on using item mall potions for lvl
80->70 and then curst hearts the rest of the way.

Many lvl
80s are stuck with this problem...no mastery room for lvl 90, so if you
are going to make a new char, decide if you want lvl 80 fire now, or
just wait until lvl 90 since it is most likely Christmas time, as the
best estimates go. Its up to you.

XII. Lvl 90 alternative

At lvl 90 you have 30 left over masteries with 3 maxed masteries. You can choose fire,heuksal, pacheon, or force.

No
matter what you choose, its not going to be outstanding because it is
only lvl 30. Fire will give you some mag def, phy dmg, and fire shield.
Heuksal will give you extra hp. Pacheon will give you attack rating,
and force will give you…well…nothing. The choice is yours, and it can
be easily changed. Don’t expect much from this lvl 30 mastery, I will
likely choose heuksal for the HP. -Update- The issue of status immunity
has been brought up numerous times by people and friends, and even in
this topic, so i started thinking about it. Ice could be your worse
enemy with no fire. Perhaps lvl 30 just for fire shield doesn't look so
bad after all.

XIII. Lvl 90 Gear

At
lvl 90, your going to ditch your 8th degree protector for 9th degree
garms. Now that you have cold lvl 90 and all that bonus physical
defense, you can wear garms to compensate for the loss of the magic
defense buff in the fire tree. Garms also have 20% moving speed and 20%
mana reduction, both of these help. First you will be super fast, not
to run, but to hunt down your cowardly foes as they flee from your
unstoppable rampage!!!!!Smile. The mana reduction also helps a lot because
mana is very important when you have snow shield on and your getting
hit a lot, nukes are mana heavy and you really don’t want to run out of
mana. In every way possible, at lvl 90, garments compliment your
character.


XIV. Stats
Your
still a nuker, so your still mostly int. I suggest keeping your magic
balance between 85%and 90% WHEN YOUR NAKED!!!. Always determine your
balances naked, never with any bonus + to stats. Decide what you want,
more magic attack, and magic defense and mp, or more physical attack,
phy defense, and hp, and then adjust your balance between 85% and 90%
accordingly. If your magic balance goes too much above 90%, you become
a weak hybrid and too much like pure int, more like a confused hybrid.

At
lvl 90, as brought up by [AoW]ForLife, dropping fire is a significant
loss of damage, and as a result I would like to add that for lvl 90,
there should be a bigger focus for a higher magic balance. The extra
int will help your damage. I was thinking of possibly 10-15lvls of str
at lvl 90 is gona be adequate enough hybrid without losing too much
damage from int.

XV. How To Use

I
can not tell you how to use your character, instead I will just give
advice and tell what I do, hopefully you will read it and use some of
it to make your own style. Its very hard to screw up using skills while
grinding or pvp.

GRINDING:
In
grinding, you should be using nukes MOST OF THE TIME. Against a single
monster, use a nuke, and depending on how much damage you do is gona
decide your next move. If your nuke does most of their hp, use one or 2
lion shouts. If you find 2 lion shouts is not enough damage, then I
suggest using 2 nukes, and if 2 nukes are overkill, use one powerful
nuke and a flame wave bomb nuke (fast but weaker) If you do not have
flame wave bomb, and 2 nukes seems over kill but 2 lion shouts leaves
some alive, I suggest different mobs. Ideally, as a nuker you can be
fighting high orange / red mobs. Grinding is all about grinding
EFFICIENCY, without grinding efficiency, you will lvl much slower.
Killing with 2 nukes is ideal, its still a fast kill, and the mobs
should be a good deal higher, so u get good exp. An occasional lion
shout after 2 nukes is fine, but you don’t want to be 3 or 4 nuking
regular mobs. When you see a rather tight group of mobs, use a ghost
walk into the crowd, and use petal sword dance, this will agro at least
3 mobs to you and probably more because mobs close to the agroed mobs
now come. Then follow up with lightning nukes for radius damage, and
flame wave wide/burning (your fire nukes that hit multiple people) or
with your ice storms. You should quickly kill multiple enemies with
splash damage and roll in the exp. Nukers are great at crowd control
and with a shield, you shouldn’t have problems with mobs at higher
lvls. When it comes to party monsters and giants, use KDs and chains
because they have the largest source of damage, more than nukes (but
nukes start from a range, so using kd on every mob wastes time running
up to them to kd). The reason they do more damage is because kds hit
fast, and when the target is on the ground, you can follow up with
stabs which are really fast and powerful attacks. At lvl 80, spamming
kd and stabs on a giant kills it much faster than spamming nukes.
HOWEVER, use nukes on giants if other mobs are around, because area
damage will kill those mobs and you get basic free kills from your
radius damage while pounding a giant. Also, use lightning chain on
giants, casting division or bleed can be very helpful in taking it down
quickly.

PVP:
PvP is
your own style, do what you feel comfortable with, but KD’s in pvp are
the best. Use nukes sparingly. And don’t forget to use your ice shield
if you need to stay alive. Ignore the noobs who complain about it, they
just can’t stand not being able to kill a nuker in pvp.

XVI. SP Recap

Here
I will compile all the sp amounts for you, so you can get the big
picture without scrolling through my overstuffed guide. The counts are
only approximate depending on if you want to follow some of the
economic alternatives to sp or not. Give or take some sp depending on
what you choose.

Lvl 80 cap:

Bicheon: 164,159

Lightning: 137,948

Fire: 163,106

Cold: 25,343

Total: 490,556

Lvl 90 Cap: from 0-90

Bicheon: 271,034

Cold: 285,295

Lightning: 260,347

Total: 816,676

BUT subtract the sp you get from fire, which is a minimum of 130,485sp if you use curst hearts for the whole thing.


Hope
you liked the guide, yes its long…sorry, but hopefully someone can come
in here, read it, and leave knowing exactly how to make a hybrid,
hopefully they don’t copy me 100%, uniqueness is what will excel your
character over everyone else’s. Most importantly, have fun with your
character.
