    v1.0 - Original version.
    
    
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    2. Why battle?
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    
    
    Why battle? Battle is really an alternative as opposed to the whole Full Brewer
    (99 dex, 99 int) build. Basically, the whole point of a Full Brewer is kinda to
    be like a FS priest/priestess, but chemist's weren't designed to be entirely FS
    anyway.. 
    
    
    Their awesome skills are really useful, especially the ones which summon things
    (Flora and Marine Spheres). These skills are really useful because of the fact
    that you can summon like.. a lot.. at a time >_>.. This really comes in handy
    when dealing with strong monsters, especially agi-based ones (because of the
    fact that each mob attacking a certain target decreases the enemy's, or your,
    flee rate) making these skills some of the most useful that you can get against
    high agility/flee monsters.
    
    
    Depending on your build, you can still use throw potion for quite a high amount
    and still have the ability to attack well (kinda like a hybrid support/battle
    priest, or a monk with lotsa int - they CAN still heal if they need to, they're
    just better at one certain thingy).
    
    
    So really, battle is basically just for a fun alternative.. Although, when used
    correctly, they can really tear some shit up :3

    3. Job Changing Quest.
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    
    
    For the test, you will need the following items:
    
     coal, 5 ea
     mini-furnace, 5 ea
     empty bottle, 3 ea
     medicine bowl, 3 ea
     herbs - red, 1 ea
             yellow, 1 ea
    	 white, 1 ea
     hammer of blacksmith, 1 ea
     worn out scrool, 1 ea
    
    *NOTE; the quest below is compulsory to complete if you plan on doing the
           chemist quest.
                                        *SUB QUEST*
    
    Unfortunantley, you also have to have completed the dye-making quest.
    Instructions are as follows:
    
    + talk to a man called 'Louitz' in Alberta. he should be located at the points
      133, 57. He will ask you to gather the following ingredients; 
    
     alcohol, 1 ea
     dextrimedridexa, 1 ea
     karvodainrol, 1 ea
    
    Bring these to him, and then choose the second choice. If this is done correctly
    you should be sent to Geffen.
    
    + try to find another man called 'Dupon" who should be located at around 
      180, 115. Talk to him (choose all options) and he'll tell you about some other
      guy in the Blacksmith place (in Geffen).
    
    + go upstairs of this blacksmith place, and talk to a man called 'Molgensten'.He
      will then make you a counteragent and mixture, and the quest is complete! :D 
    
    
    				    *CHEMIST QUEST*
    
    Coming in the near future! Sorry, I would've included it, but it takes a really
    long time to write! D:

    4. Builds
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    
    
    Agility Build:
    STR: 85
    AGI: 95
    VIT:  1 
    INT: 19
    DEX: 45
    LUK:  1
    
    I'm really not gonna reccomend any gear, but for all Agility builds, you should
    get a Mocking Muffler like.. Pronto o__o
    
    
    
    
    Vitality Build:
    STR: 85
    AGI:  1
    VIT: 85
    INT: 15
    DEX: 59
    LUK: 12
    
    I really don't reccomend this build - It's easy to level at first, but you'll
    have a hard time with the INCREDIBLY low attack speed. Try dropping some strength
    or dexterity to increase vitality or agility. It's really up to you - these are
    not strict rules in the slightest, they're only guidelines.
    
    For this, you should probably get some HP adding gear, see below for an example.
    
    
    Head(Top): Majestic Goat (Or anything that you see fit)
    Head(Middle): Elven Ears, Mini-Glasses, Blush (Anything you want)
    Head(Lower): Romantic leaf? (Anything you want)
    
    Armor: Hard Lord's clothes (Pupa card)
    Garment: (Anything you want)
    Feet: Green boots (Matyr card) or Fledged boots (Verit card)
    Accessories: For level -90, 2 necklaces, for levels 90+, slotted necklaces of
    	     Spore (Spore cards).
    
    
    
    
    Hybrid forge Build:
    STR: 65
    AGI: 80
    VIT: 20
    INT: 50
    DEX: 60
    LUK: 16
    
    This one's not actually too bad.. If you have like.. a FS priest with you, it's
    actually one of the better builds, but you might also want to consider some of
    the HP-adding gear that the Vitality build offers.
    
    
    
    
    Hybrid battle Build:
    STR: 65
    AGI: 90-ish
    VIT: 55 or so
    INT:  1
    DEX: 50-ish
    LUK: 10 or lower
    
    This build is quite similar to the forge build, just a bit better. I think that
    I kinda overdid the dexterity a little bit, but that's okay, you can drop it if
    you really wish to do so. This build is really quite good with a good friend to
    help you out (A priest, or a party). The 50-or-so vit stops you from being hit
    too severely (except from boss monsters, or things of the likes) and the agi
    really helps you fend off said monsters, which is really nice, unless you happen
    to get into a mob attack :S
    
    I reccomend that you get a mocking muffler/manteau, and some HP adding gear
    which should make a nice combo, making you feel quite secure with your 10k or so
    HP, so even if you do get hit, you should really be fine. :3
    
    
    
    
    Critical agile build:
    STR: 60
    AGI: 90
    VIT:  1
    INT: 14
    DEX: 22
    LUK: 76
    
    This build is okay.. if you have the right gear (Perhaps a 4s battle axe with
    some SS cards..) But you'd HAVE to party with a priest.. (For gloria, of course)
    and then still, you'd only have about 80% critical rate.. This build is actually
    quite successful, IF you have the right gear, and the right friends x3.
    
    Some gear is reccomended; below:
    
    Head(top): Bunny Band, or other luck-adding gear
    Head(middle): Doesn't matter
    Head(lower): Doesn't matter
    
    Armor: Lucky Lords clothes? (Poring card)
    Garment: Mocking Manteau (Whisper card)
    Feet: Crystal Pumps
    Accessories: Slotted rosaries of counter (Cobold card)
    
    With this, Gloria, and a 4s battle axe, all with Soldier Skeleton cards, you'll
    ONLY have 80% crit, which seriously isn't that good.. It's actually a pretty good
    build though, if you have that kind of style.
    
    
    
    
    Critical Vital build:
    STR: 60
    AGI:  1 
    VIT: 80
    INT: 16
    DEX: 22
    LUK: 86
    
    The gear applies exactly the same to the build above. If you want more crit,
    this build with the above equip gives you about 83% crit - not much change.
    I think that you should probably decrease some luck, increase some agi or
    stuff like that.. but it's actually a pretty good build. The one thing that
    you don't have to keep, however, is the mocking hood/manteau/muffler/cape.
