=================================================
1) Introduction*
=================================================

Obviously since this is a guide completely homing in on a Dragon Knight
(spear using Dragon Knight specifically), I at times may appear bias towards
the Dragon Knight and my personal builds. Because of this, I wish to show 
more than one possibility, and even allow yourself to merely "guide" you 
through your leveling up as a Warrior and on. I also ask for you to e-mail me 
comments/suggestions so that I may improve this guide. 


=================================================
2) Warriors as a Class*
=================================================

Warriors as a class are extremely powerful. They eventually will hit higher
(while doing this more consistently) than any other class. The also have mass
quantities of Hp. The difficulty is that it requires patience and a lot of 
money. 

As a Warrior, you will oviously be in close combat referred to as melee. Any 
of you who love this over range, I highly recommend this class for you. The 
flaw in this is that you will take massive damage at higher levels. Other 
flaws with the Warrior include:
	
	1) incredibly innacurate
	2) high damage range (in beginning)
	3) low mp
	4) kill-stolen (ksed) a lot
	5) laughed upon by many until higher levels
	

These flaws are repaired as you level. Innaccuracy is repaired when you 
level up a skill called "Mastery." Spearman get Spear Mastery and Polearm 
mastery. This skill allows you to fix the high damage range, and raises your 
accuracy as well. Low mp is increased as a Spearman. In other classes, you 
can even increase regeneration amount. As you level up, warriors will be 
dominating in areas Magicians, Archers, and Theives may not be able to level. 
You in otherwords, will not be bothered by other classes. Finally, as you 
level, you get cooler armor, hit higher and your existence is finally 
acknowledged. Warriors become quite useful in parties as well (this including
party quests).


=================================================
3) Warriors vs. Other Classes*
=================================================

If you are 100% sure that you want to train a Warrior at this point, skip to 

		   6) Maple Island as a Beginner

otherwise, I suggest you continue reading on for other possibilities in your
Maple Story journey.


First I wish to discuss Warriors vs Archers. In the beginning, an Archer is 
like a long range warrior except more accurate and they have more 
avoidability. Each of them have unstable damage, and Archers get double shot 
which puts them near the same damage of a warrior. Archers however, take even
more patience compared to a Warrior, due to their even more drastic unstable 
damage. Later, Archers become crazy. They use multiple "stunning" abilities 
while attacking several enemies at once. Both of 3rd jobs of an Archer reach 
extremely high damage levels due to the fact they can fire 4 arrows. This 
damage is incredibly close to that of a really good Warrior, except they 
attack from a distance...stunning enemies...not taking damage...if you catch 
my drift.

If you are interested in becoming a Ranger, I highly suggest you look at
the guide Wind_8500 made. He's a good friend of mine and as some great 
ideas.


Now there's Warriors vs Magicians. Magicians in the beginning are by far
the best class. They have no extreme damage range, and they attack from a 
distance like archers. Your hittings 1's until you can finally attack with 
magic, but that doesnt last too long. After that, they are quite powerful. 
Every 3rd job magician can attack multiple enemies for some good damage. They 
hit pretty high, but Warriors definitley over power the Magician later. One 
problem with Magicians is the lack of HP, but they have an ability which 
allows to take physical damage, and drain it from their mp. Their armor aint 
the cheapest either. 


Finally there's Warrior vs. Theives. Theives attack pretty high in the 
beginning with stars and their knives because they attack twice. They are 
more nimble and accurate then warriors. Warriors surpass the Assasin/Bandit 
in the second job advancement in damage though, however, the cheif bandits in
the 3rd job have some ridiculously poweful attacks which do a lot of damage
(more than Warriors). Theives are really expensive too. Some people fail with 
theives just because they don't have the money. 




================================================= 
4) Spearman vs. Other 2nd Job Advancements*
=================================================

The Warriors second job isnt really that different. The only difference is 
what weapons they master, and a couple abilities. 

Fighter:  Axe/Sword user
	  Can boost weapon attack of party
	  Can "return" damage from enemy 

Page:     Sword/Blunt weapon user
	  Can lower enemy wep def
	  Also returns damage from enemies

Spearman: Spear/Polearm user (unable to use shields because of this)
	  Raises party's wep def and mag def
	  Raises party's max hp and mp by 60%
	  
All these members get final attack, weapon booster, and mastery.
The reason why you choose a class is for what they become in the future...




=================================================
5) Dragon Knight vs. Other 3rd Job Advancements*
=================================================

Here's where a Warrior starts to show its true colors. The Fighter becomes
a Crusader they can tremenously raise their weapon attack as well as wep def. 
They also regenerate more mp, stun enemies or put them into darkness, and 
destroy the spell of an enemy that rose its defense. The White Knight is 
similiar, except it can add elemental attributes to its attacks and crushes 
magic guard. Finally, the Dragon Knight. It is capable of attacking several 
enemies for thousands of damage. Unlike otherclasses, it consumes hp in order
to attack and does not increase reneration of mp. I'll go into the HP use 
problem in the section
		 
		13) The Hp Problem with the Dragon Knight



=================================================
6) Maple Island as a Beginner*
=================================================

After you download the client and register your ID, you must plug in your
password and create a pin. After doing so, you must choose a world. The 
worlds to the left are the most recent, the ones to the right the oldest. 
After that, choose a channel. When you have finally reached this point you 
need to create a characeter. When you create your character, try to have the 
majority of your points into STR and DEX. Try not to get a 6 into INT or LUK
for the maximum outcome. When the character appears and has the stats you 
like, begin the game.

You first appear on Maple Island. Try talking to every person you see with a 
lightbulb above their head. These people assign quests and make leveling 
really easy. 

When you level, your capable of puting in ability points in your character.
As a warrior, you need strength. The first thing you must do, is get your 
strength (STR) to 35. I'll explain why later. After that, raise your dexterity
(DEX) to 20. If you're unable to do this before level 11, that's ok. If you 
got a 5 or 4 in both luck (LUK) or intelligence (INT), you should be able to 
do this though. After that, put all AP into strength up until level 10.

I suggest you get off the island at lvl 9. The reason being in my next 
section. To leave the island head to Southperry and get on the big boat.




=================================================
7) Becoming a Warrior and AP Distribution*
=================================================

***For some quick exp, I suggest that you talk Olaf (the Viking in Lith 
Harbor). When you talk to him, choose the path of the warrior, so that once
you become a Warrior, you get some exp.***

When you get off Maple Island, you should head to Perion. The trip can 
actually level you. If it doesnt, level yourself to lvl 10, but
DO NOT GO ABOVE LEVEL 10. 

Perion is pretty far away. The safest path in my opinion is to travel past 
Henesys and Ellinia and head north. You can always take the top left portal 
at the 3 way split, heading to Kerning, and continue to head north also. 
Either way, you will arrive at the most north city, Perion. When you are 
there, go to the highest portal and enter. Talk to Dances with Balrog and if 
you followed my instructions as a begginer, you should be able to accept the 
job of being Warrior. Conrgrats, you're now a Warrior. 


AP Distribution:

At this point, AP should be distributed differently. Your DEX should be 
exactly twice your level. If you followed my instructions, it should already
be twice your level. If not, then make it so. From this point on, add 3 
into STR and 2 into DEX, that way your DEX 2x your level at all times. 
You may try other ways, but this way you have the most possible accuracy and
do the most posiblle damage at your level.




=================================================
8) Becoming a Spearman and AP Distribution*
=================================================

When you finally reached level 30, you are now qualified to become a Spearman.
Return to Perion and go talk to Dances with Balrog, the Cheifman whom you 
talked to in order to become a Warrior. If for some reason you do not 
remember where he is located, read the above section 

7) Becoming a Warrior and AP Distribution


When you talk to him, he gives you a letter which you have to give to a man 
in the 4th section of the West Rocky Mountains. At this point, stock up on 
potions (I suggest 40 or 50 of white and blue) and exit perion from the left.
Keep going left until you reach West Rocky Mountain I. You have to choose from
2 portals. You know you chose the correct one when you reach West Rocky 
Mountain II. Keep using portals until the 4th section where you will see a 
ridiculously muscular instructor. He's hard to miss. Talk to him and you will
have to accomplish a task. He will teleport you to another perion looking 
location, and you have to kill Lupins and Fire Boars in order to find 30 
Dark Marbles. Try to avoid the Lupins because of their attack style, and kill
the Fire Boars. When you are finished, you are given Proof of a Hero which
you must give to Dances with Balrog. Choose to become a Spearman, and accept.
Congrats, you're now a Spearman.


AP Distribution:

From this point on, AP distribution should be 4 into STR and 1 into DEX until 
level 50. You should have 80 DEX then, which is all you really need. 
If thats too low, then buy dex raised armor or scroll it. The reason why its
low is in section:

14) The Hp Problem with the Dragon Knight




=================================================
9) Becoming a Dragon Knight*
=================================================

*Before any of this aquire a Dark Crystal*

Once you reach level 70, your finally qualified to become a Dragon Knight.
First, you have to go to Orbis, head down Orbis tower and arrive in El Nath.
At El Nath, find the highest portal and enter it. There should be 3 people, 1
who is named Tylus. After doing so you must once again return to Dances of
Balrog in Perion. If you do not remember where he is located by now...I pity
you and will not give you his location. Anyway, talk to him and he makes you 
go into the dungeon. Keep going in until you reach the 24 hour store, whose
map name is Ant Tunnel Park. Look around for the Door of Dimension, which 
should bring you to "The Path of the Gliterring Crystal." You must walk to 
the end until you see the dark warrior, and when you defeat him you aquire a 
Black Charm. 

Return to Dances with Balrog and give him the Black Charm. He will take it, 
and in return give you a Necklace of Strength which you have to give to Tylus
back in El Nath. When you are finished with that, leave El Nath from the 
right. Keep going through portals until you reach, El Nath: Ice Valley II.
Head to the top of this screen, and their will be a path into Sharp Cliff 1.
Head up, and go through the portal which brings you Sharp Cliff 2. In Sharp
Cliff 2, you have to go through a secret portal found at the top right. 
Just keep pressing up until you teleport. You are now in the "Holy Ground at
the Snowfield." Look for the green dot on the screen, double click it and 
you must answer 5 questions. 

You have unlimited time to answer these questions. I suggest you use this 
time because if you get any of the 5 wrong, you need to start over and 
get another Dark Crystal. When you answer all 5 questions correctly in a row, 
you recieve a Necklace of Wisdom. Once again, bring this to Tylus and you 
finally get to choose and accept the job of Dragon Knight. CONRGRATS!

AP Distribution: 

All into STR



=================================================
10) Beginner Skills and Builds*
=================================================

This section will be short and sweet:)

Three Snails    Master Level: 3
 Hurls snail shells to attack monsters from a long distance.
Level 1: Snail Shell -1, MP -10, Damage 10
Level 2: Blue Snail Shell -1, MP -15, Damage 25
Level 3: Red Snail Shell -1, MP -20, Damage 40

Recovery    Master Level: 3
 Enables the user to recover hp constantly for 30 seconds 
 (Terms between skills: 10 minutes)
Level 1: MP -10, Recover Hp 24 in 30 seconds
Level 2: MP -20, Recover Hp 48 in 30 seconds
Level 3: MP -30, Recover Hp 72 in 30 seconds

Nimble Feet   Master Level: 3
 Enables the character to move around quickly for a short amount of time
 (Terms between skills: 15)
Level 1: MP -10, Speed +10 for 4 seconds
Level 2: MP -15, Speed +15 for 8 seconds
Level 3: MP -20, Speed +20 for 12 seconds

As a warrior, Three Snails is useless, and you only get 6 skills points. This
makes my build the following:

1- Recovery 1
2- Recovery 1
3- Recovery 1
4- Nimble Feet 1
5- Nimble Feet 1
6- Nimble Feet 1

End of story, no complaints. You will be doing a bit of damage with the 
amount of STR you have, and Three Snails requires Mp as well, which you dont
have a lot. HP comes before 12 seconds of speed in my opinion. As long as you
max Recovery and Nimble Feet, I don't care what you do.

Level 19: MP -13; HP -15, damage 125%
Level 20: MP -14; HP -16, damage 130%




Here's my suggested build. 

10- HP Recover 1
11- HP Recover 3
12- HP Recover 1; Improving Max HP Increase 2
13- Improving Max HP Increase 3
14- Improving Max HP Increase 3
15- Improving Max HP Increase 2; Power Strike 1
16- Power Strike 3
17- Power Strike 3
18- Power Strike 3
19- Slash Blast 3
20- Slash Blast 3
21- Slash Blast 3
22- Slash Blast 3;
23- Slash Blast 1; Power Strike 2
24- Power Strike 3
25- Power Strike 3
26- Power Strike 2; HP Recover 1
27- HP Recover 3
28- HP Recover 3
29- HP Recover 3
30- HP Recover 1; Endure 2

In total:
HP Recover: 16
Max HP: 10
Power Strike: 20
Slash Blast: 13
Endure: 2 

My reasons behind this madness are as followed:
- Need 5 HP Recover in order to put anything into Improving Max Hp Increase
- The sooner you max Improving Max HP Increase, the more Hp you have
- Powerstrike is next so you have a poweful attack, but should only be
  leveled to 10 because its still 180% damage and you don't want to waste too 
  much mp
- Slash Blast kills multiple enemies, and enemies in this level come in 
  numbers. Stop at lvl 13 because you hit 100% now
- Finish Powerstrike for max possible damage
- Max HP Recover to recover hp faster
- Had nothing better to put it in. Also, Endure allows me to heal in safety.
  Usually when im away for extended times, I need safe place to heal, so by 
  the time im back, Endure fully healed me. 

Other Reasons: 
-Raising wep def with Iron Body is useless if you 1 hit kill enemies
-Slash Blast is good, but as a Dragon Knight, you will be using better 
 abilities that have the same purpose.



Another Build:

Here's a guide from Richard Dong [supermarth64@gmail.com] whom I would like
to thank for contributing it. 

10- HP Recover 1
11- HP Recover 2
12- HP Recover 1; Improving Max HP Increase 2
13- Improving Max HP Increase 3
14- Improving Max HP Increase 3
15- Improving Max HP Increase 2; 1 Power Strike
16- Slash Blast 3
17- Slash Blast 3
18- Slash Blast 3
19- Slash Blast 1; Power Strike 2
20- Power Strike 3
21- Power Strike 3
22- Power Strike 3
23- Power Strike 3
24- Power Strike 3
25- Power Strike 2; Slash Blast 1
26- Slash Blast 3
27- Slash Blast 3
28- Slash Blast 3
29- Endure 3
30- 3 into whatever
 
His reasons: 
-Maxing out Slash Blast leads to faster leveling and it's a long way until
you are a Dragon Knight
- Maxing HP recovering isn't that good since you will be dedicated to 
training and not standing around

My thoughts: 
This build is 100% perfectly fine to me. For one, Slash Blast kills multiple
enemies. From level 15-20 I suggest that you train in the slime tree in the
section 
	  14) Tips, Strategies and Locations when Leveling

In the slime tree, there are way too many slimes, so leveling up Slash Blast
isn't that bad. Also, I noticed that when I was training my Warrior, potions 
seemed to be better than sitting around and waiting. In otherwords, not 
maxing HP Recovery is a completely valid choice to me. One thing though is 
that instead of putting your 6 skill points from levels 29 and 30, he puts 
things into Endure. This is ok, but your also able to put it into HP recovery
and incerease the amount you recover, since Endure envolves you hanging from
a ladder taking even more time to heal.


Final Thoughts with a Warrior Build:
I truly don't care what you do with your Warrior as long as you

1) Max out Improving Max HP Increase first
2) Max out Power strike
3) Don't put anything into Iron Body (because you get Hyper Body as a 
   Spearman which raises HP by 60%)  

If you want to max Slash Blast and level it a little earlier, and don't want
to max HP Recovery like Richard Dong [supermarth64@gmail.com] said, that is 
fine as well. Since your really only toying around with 4 skills, there
isn't much more to do with the Warrior.



***I do not want any more e-mails on Warrior builds since 
Richard Dong [supermarth64@gmail.com]and I covered most, if not, all the 
other possible ways of leveling up a good Warrior.***

In total:
Spear Mastery: 20
Final Attack(Spear): 30
Hyper Body: 30
Spear Booster: 20
Iron Will: 20
Endure: 1

The reason behind this build is:
-Mastery fixes unstable damage adding accuracy
-Final Attack allows for you to hit again without MP use
-Need 3 iron will in order to level Hyper Body
-Hyper body at max raises hp and mp up 60%
-Raises Spears speed, which is always good, and I find it more important
 than raising wep def
- This raises mag def too, and it is the only other Spearman skill that
 doesnt have "pole arm" in it
-Endure is just to waste a SP

Other Reasons:
-You have everything with a spear mastered and Iron Will and Hyper Body is 
mastered as well.

***I do not want any complaints or suggestions with this build because 
everything is mastered that doesnt have polearm in it, and it makes a perfect
pure spear Spearman. If you have any arguments, I suggest you go Hybrid
which is explained later***

-You have everything with a pole arm mastered and Iron Will and Hyper Body is 
mastered as well.

***I do not want any complaints or suggestions with this build because 
everything is mastered that doesnt have polearm in it, and it makes a perfect
pure pole arm Spearman. If you have any arguments I suggest you go Hybrid,
which is explained later*** 



			====================
		       //      Hybrid*     \\			
		       ======================

This is a build if you want to be good in both spear and pole arm. I do not 
suggest this build because that means that you wont get the max potental for
either spear or polearm. Also, this build doesn't make sense to me because 
you physically need to be using a pole arm in order to use pole arm abilities, 
and a spear in order to use spear abilities. This basically means you need 
to buy both spears and pole arms. If you still want to go hyrbid though,
here's the best build I could come up with. 


30- Spear/Pole Arm Mastery 1
31- Spear/Pole Arm Mastery 3
32- Spear/Pole Arm Mastery 3
33- Spear/Pole Arm Mastery 3

67- Hyper Body 3
68- Hyper Body 3
69- Hyper Body 3
70- Hyper Body 3

In total:
Spear Master: 20
Pole Arm Master: 20
Final Attack(Spear): 15
Final Attack(Pole Arm): 15
Spear Booster: 10
Pole Arm Booster: 10
Hyper Body: 26
Iron Will: 3

The reason behind this build:
-You master both weapons
-You get a 30% chance of Final Attack in both weapons
-Both weapons can be increased in speed for almost 2 minutes
-You nearly master Hyper Body

Negatives with this build:
-Build is good, but you don't max "booster" and "final attack" in both
-You don't master Iron Will (not much of a loss to me)



Other Possible Builds*:

Here are guides from Richard Dong [supermarth64@gmail.com] whom I would 
like to thank for contributing them. 

He created 2 other builds for me, 1 which is his "pure" hyrbid, and the other 
focusing a little more on polearm. He called this his "1.5" build which if 
you want to check out go to:

65- Spear Booster 3
66- Spear Booster 3
67- Spear Booster 3
68- Spear Booster 1; 2 into whatever
69- 3 into whatever
70- 3 into whatever

His reasons: 
-You max hyper body
-You max boosters
-You get pole arm in the 2nd job, and spear in the 3rd job. 
 (This is because polearm is for stable damage in the 2nd job and you still 
 mastered spear, which is important in the 3rd job with the ability Buster)


My thoughts:
It's acceptable in my book. You master out both masteries and boosteries. 
You don't however master final attack. This is where I must make an important 
point. Final Attack is HORRIBLE if you don't knock back the enemy. Your just 
asking to get hit...many times. My guild leader mentioned that he hated it
because he would keep running into Alishar (Ludibruim Party Quest boss), and 
it does about 500-600 damage. My Archer friend, Wind_8500, also does not 
like the ability because it does NOT activate with 3rd job skills. If you 
were to train on golems or yetis or whatever, Final Attack is fine because
you level faster and you would most likely knock them back.

His reason:
-Mainly to level a final attack, but you don't max booster which he stated.

My thoughts:
It's good. You max out Hyper Body which is important. Spear Mastery at 19
is ok because it only gives you +1 in accuracy which isn't gonna kill you. 
The only thing that bothers me is leaving Pole Arm Mastery with 6. Its ok 
since you will be using your spear in the 3rd job, but 6 seems a little low.
I don't have any more problems with this interesting "1.5" build though.


My Final Thoughts with the Spearman Build:
Once again, I truly do not care how you level your Spearman. I merely wrote 
this to guide you. I still highly recommend you go pure(spear), but if you go 
hyrbid you must at least do the follow:
1)Max out some kind of mastery first (Preverably pole arm for more stable 
damage as a Spearman) and the other later
2) Come really close to maxing out Hyper Body
3) Have SOME sort of Booster in AT LEAST spear for help as a Dragon Knight

I do not care if you choose the hyrbid 1.5, the pure or my half and half, 
but either way you still accomplish those 3 things. 


***I do not want any more e-mails on spearman builds since 
Richard Dong [supermarth64@gmail.com]and I covered most, if not, all the 
other possible ways of leveling up a good spearman.***

In total:
Buster: 30
Dragon Fury: 30
Dragon Blood: 20
Elemental Resistance: 20
Power Crash: 18
Dragon Roar: 30
Sacrifice: 3

The reasons behind this build:
-Buster is your most poweful move, so maxing it first is a must
-Dragon Blood increases power more
-Dragon Fury should come before the last 2 because it's more useful 
 than the other 2
-Elemental Resistance allows you to have some magic defence which is nice
-Power crash isn't that great since not a lot of high level enemies increase
 power, but the last 2 abilities drain A LOT OF HEALTH
-Dragon roar is for show, and is more benificial than Sacrifice since you 
 deal 4000 to 15 enemies instead of 10 or 11000 to 1 enemy. Either way, it 
 pretty much kills you unless maxed, which still takes away 30% of your 
 health

His Reasons: 
-He believes that 1 hit killing is a must in order to save MP.
-Dragon Roar is more useful than power crush and Elemental Resistance right 
now
-Elemental Resistance is better than power crush since not many monsters have
attk+ skills

My Thoughts: 
-Accomplishes the same things the last 3 are in a different order.


My Final Thoughts with the Dragon Knight Build:
For the final time, I truly do not care how you level up your Dragon Knight.
As long as you:
1) Max out Buster fast
2) Max out Dragon Blood right after and then max Dragon Fury
3) Max out Dragon Roar, Elemental Resistance and almost max Power Crash

your Dragon Knight will be fine. You may max out Dragon Roar, Elemental
Resistance and Power Crash in whatever order you feel is best. It's your 
decision.  


***I do not want any more e-mails on Dragon Knight builds since 
Richard Dong [supermarth64@gmail.com]and I covered most, if not, all the 
other possible ways of leveling up a good Dragon Knight.***




=================================================
14) The Hp Problem with the Dragon Knight*
=================================================

**Thank you Blason for providing much information**

A Dragon Knights main attack is Buster. It attacks 3 times, hitting 3 enemies
for 170% at max. This can easily cause you to rack up 13k-16k of damage. 
This is more than the Crusader can hit without its combo, and the White 
Knights damage of 8-13k. So why is there a problem. Simple. It attacks 3 
times to the other warriors 1. The knock back of enemies dramatically 
increases at higher levels, and one place Dragon Knights love is at the 
Grim Phantom Watche's liar. Their knock back is 5.5k of damage, which if you 
do the math, isnt 100% common. There are really only 2 things to do then.

1)Bring a cleric(which you should do anyway)
			or
2)Scroll weapon for attack, gloves for attack and cape for strength while 
usign pots or dragon blood while having a dex a little on the low side for
maximum strength

If your lucky, you might hit 5.5k more frequently. Brign a cleric anyway...
just incase.

15) Tips, Strategies and Locations when Leveling*
=================================================

Here's the locations that I would go to in order to level

1-10: Maple Island
10-15: The Hill East of Henesys
15-20: Slime Tree to the left of Ellinia
       Head 2 screens left from Ellinia and go in far left tree portal
20-25: Pig Beach
       Head to the 3 way split. If you come from the right, keep heading left
       until you see a ladder. Clime the ladder and to the right should be
       a patch of yellow flowers. Keep pressing up around it and you should
       teleport to a Hidden Street: Pig Beach.
25-30: The Horned Mushroom/Green Mushroom Tree
       Head 2 screens left from Ellinia and go in the closest tree portal 
       from where the portal is
30: PQ

31-35: Keep training as you did at lvl 25-30. If you want a challenge, try
       the first area of the Ant Hill in the dungeon.

35-40: Train in the first area of the Ant Hill. If you want a challenge, try
       killing Golems. If you take the dungeon path from Henesys there should
       be a pit with golems on the way there. There, there's a sign with an
       exclamation point. Press up. Exploring this region, you will find a 
       lot of golems.
40-50: Kill Golems or do Ludibruim Party Quest
50-55: I suggest you PQ while you can, otherwise you can try Drakes around 	
       Perion. I know some are in East Rocky 4 or 5. Some are also really 
       deep in the dungeon.
55-70: Train in El Nath. There are lots of good things there. Stuff like
       Zombies and Jr. Yetis are some examples. 

After level 70 your free to do as you wish. Your possiblities are vast and I
cannot give you one place to train. 


Tips/Strategies: 
-As a Spearman or Dragon Knight, your spear/polearm has some range. Use this 
 to your advantage to prevent getting hit.
-Try to kill things in 1 hit. I've noticed that if you kill things in one hit, 
 you can just move on the next and kill it in one hit also. This racks up 
 small amounts of exp from enemies quickly, which is better than taking 
 forever on one enemy that gives slightly more exp. It also saves your money 
 on pots.
-Buy the best weapon you can at any time. A good offense, is a good defense.
-Try doing quests. They give you exp and money for pots. If you can't do a 
 quest, then get some help. Some people are nice and will help you free of 
 charge.
-BRING A CLERIC
-Blason suggests you dont train on vikings


Tip from Shnibles:

Try the Zarkum Party Quest. Every time you finish the minimum requirements 
you get 12,000 experience. If you can get a good group of about 3-5 people in
a party, the quest can take less than 10 minutes. Not only is it easy once 
you get the hang of it, but also if you're careful you will use less than 50 
white potions per party quest, which is a lot easier and faster that killing 
about 90 Jr. Yetis (12,000 experience) for around level 50.

One party quest in about 10 minutes is 12,000 experience, if you keep going 
for one hour thats 72,000 exp per hour. That's almost 10% for level 51 
(748,608 experience needed total) in just one hour. Also, if you only use 
around 50 white potions for every party quest thats only 300 white potions to
get 10%, which for me is much better than using not only tons of HP potions 
but also MP potions, so it saves more money, its fast and easy compared to 
killing 540 Jr Yetis. 


If you like this tip, go for it. It sounds 100% logical to me and I probably 
will try it.
