Started a new character - looking for a good Blade build.

#1negablitz3Posted 7/4/2008 3:51:23 PM
I've just become a Mercenary and am still level 15. I haven't levelled up any of my skills yet, and all of my stat points so far are in STR. I don't know much about the game, so any suggestions or info would be much appreciated. That said, I really just want to build my Mercenary on the basis that it will hopefully turn out to be a good Blade.

Any tips?

Blades cost a few hundred mil just to be considered decent. Do you have a few hundred mil to spare?

Call me old fashioned, but I kinda like ye-old build

Str - XXX
Sta - 20 to 25
Dex - 56
Int - 15 (none added)

Or you could get the same but with 80 Dex.

Or you could go full str if you plan on getting a +8 set

I went with:

Str-xxx
Sta-40
Dex-53
Int-15
That's the average axe build. Only 53 dex because of the axe speed break and 40 sta so i can take a couple hits without an FS to support me. Overall I say it's pretty good but only do this build if you are really well funded. You know what if this is your first character don't make a blade at all unless you have about 300mil to spare.

Money. Lots and lots of money. Since you don't have it, you're going to have a make a Knight instead.

Why do you need so much money for a Blade? Any real differences between Knight and Blade? Just a set of skills that I may need when I'm a Blade/Knight, and a basic stat setup would be helpful is all. I'm not planning on becoming the best in the world or anything lol, just want to have a decent setup for a Blade when I'm playing with a friend as we're not massively serious about the game. I'd still want to get it right though.

Well, Blades require you to be "massively serious", or you'll have a failure character.

A Blade and a Knight are completely different, since Blades kill one monster at a time while as Knights gather a bunch and kill them all at once. I don't feel like listing builds here, so you can just read this topic.

Pffft.. Let him make a blade.

Worst case, he gets a second character later for farming purposes. And money's not THAT hard to come by. Especially since if he's not playing seriously anyway, the chances he's going to get much past 60 is slim to none anyway. And let's face it, the grind to AOE knighthood is horrible. It goes by moderately faster if you're building toward blade.

If you looked this good you wouldn't wear pants either.

*slams fist to table*

Damnit Jim! How can you do that to the young and the hopeful, huh?! He's just trying to get by, asking for help. No, begging for help! Can't you see he needs it more than anything? Can't you?! You're ready push him off a cliff, throw him under a car amd shove his grandmother in a closet without even a shred regret!?

...I've lost every bit of respect I had for you.

You're dead to me.
