Wow. Thanks @Darth-Simous @Twizted_Jedi for the answers! Loved that 550 build!

Can you give me the "perfect" Mystic Knight build?

I will try to play a MK in the future.

And another questions:
Why Dragon's Roost instead of Dread Aspis?

A Max Str Pawn is a good partner for a MK Arisen? Another good suggestion of Pawn for a MK Arisen, please?

Why BB enemy pawns can be MA and ours pawns can't? That's unfair. :(

Edit: I said I liked Deianira as fighter because I wanted to have one Pawn of every vocation color! xD

That my friend is a loaded question , I don't know . I personally like to play MK best on my Balanced 550 Arisens With Strength augments plus Acuity and Bloodlust but there are a bunch of different ways to play that vocation . Frankly @Darth-Simous can probably give you a better in depth view of Augments and stuff . He really likes to play MK .

It would seem to me that the balanced build would best lend itself to MK with Great Cannon and all but possibly a build that has a bit more strength than mag would be good as well . maybe like 600/500 or 650/450 . I'm not totally sure I haven't played a whole lot of MK on my high Str accounts .

Because it rules ... That is all :)

Just kidding .. kinda .... Not really . The Dragons Roost is really strong .. Staggers enemies with its lightning enchantment upon perfect block and Inflicts Lowered Strength both from a PB or Cymbal Onslaught . Lowered Strength is a flag on Golden /Silver Knights and Griffins. Although I'm not sure its a necessary flag for Griffins .. Regardless that shield is just bad ass !

The Dread Aspis is just really strong . Really a no brainer for me and most other people with Fighter pawns .

Hmmm .. I dunno , It might depend on how you play your MK honestly . As I said I most commonly play MK as Sable one of my Balanced Arisen's and her main pawn Athena is also balanced so I can and have changed her to whatever I need . Versatility is kinda awesome .

A lot of this depends on if you play a more Melee or Magic based MK or an equal mix of both .

@JeffsonP , hey, buddy, U R welcome, always glad to help a bit. Twizted already replied to these. I can give U a few "bits & pieces". First of all, I am no Ghost of Kirin, i consider him a True Master of DD & one of the Best DD Players EVER, period . It was his vids - and Jon Gonzalles' Vids - , when i first started playing a year ago, that had me "hooked" to the MK Vocation ... Check his YouTube Channel:

https://www.youtube.com/user/MurtonVonGhingerhaus/featured

Various players, as well as Karathrax, have suggested various builds, regarding Mystic Knight, as in this older thread - https://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/626514-dragons-dogma/67851323 -

For me, as @Twizted_Jedi knows my "habits" in-game, it's all about power, and all the rest come afterwards. That means MIN-MAX Builds, as they are called. For Mystic Knight - my next Arisen (Spoiler !), i will go with:


https://stackoverflow.github.io/dragons-dogma-stat-planner/#af000000000000005a00000000000064000000

1-10: Fighter, 11-100: Assassin, 101-200: Sorcerer. The reason for this is simple. U can get the best 60-to-40% STR to MAG, generally accepted working best for Mystic Knight. That goes - firstly - for the Great Cannon, to be able to deal the most possible damage - per average. Keep this in mind: Every enemy in the game has different resistances to Physical & to Magical Attacks (thresholds). A good Mystic Knight can tackle EVERY enemy in the game, as long as u know what U R doing with the Vocation.

Also, Mystic Knight Shields are Dual-Stat - STR & MAG - Weapons, by default. That means U need High STR & High MAG again, to fully-utilize them. Reposting (Blocking) with MK Shields is not the same as normal Shields, MK Shields inflict way more damage, plus a bunch of other Skills U can use. The List is long... I can give U Skills and Augments Set-ups for Mystic Knight, if-when needed.

Dragon's Roost is my personal selection, even on Deianira who is MAX STR (for a Pawn). Twizted already mentioned it's advantages above. Just want to add that Lowered Strength is amazingly how overlooked it is, as a Debilitation to inflict. I have test it myself, and frankly, most strong foes on BBI, can get inflicted with LS. This gives U a HUGE advantage, when U have Casters on your team - and not only - because they won't take much damage, when getting hit.

As for a good Pawn Build for an MK Arisen, NO, i wouldn't suggest a MAX STR Pawn. On the contrary, i would go with a High MAG Pawn, like Danika is. The reason is - again - the MK's Great Cannon: Many of the Sorcerer's Skills "fire" the Great Cannon Orbs, like Fulmination, Maelstrom, Magic Agent e.t.c. U won't believe what happens, when Orbs fly all around ... XD

Yes, some corrupted pawns are MAs, but only use Hunter Bolts, anyway, no big deal. I think there were "hacked" pawns in the past, as MAs, but caused game-crushes...

And, yes, U were very right about Deianira & Marcos being a different vocation color in the same team, it was more effective !

Cheers, my friend !

Hahaha .. I swear its like you hacked my PC and went through my bookmarks lately ! XD .... Or your doing that Jedi mind trick again , Get outta my head dude !!! .. It's dangerous in there :)

Sorc-sin Build's ! Man I love those .. I can't remember if Kara started calling them that or if someone else did . In any case it sounds much better than Sor-Ass ! XD

Honestly builds don't get more simple than that . Really great for power leveling too , You can level like a boss , Without stressing about catching unwanted levels .

Also , If you don't mind leveling different vocations a couple times , Builds like these are really easy to tweak to whatever you need . For example .. If you like Darth's great Sorc-sin plan above , But maybe your not as good at PBs as Darth so you need a little more HP , But don't want your Str or Mag to dip below 650/550 ,You can do this ..

https://stackoverflow.github.io/dragons-dogma-stat-planner/#af0001000c0000004d00000000000061000300

All we did was move a few levels around and grab 12 lev of Warrior and 1 level of Strider .. custom tailoring is as easy as that .

For me personally I like having some levels from other vocations along the way . I always have 4 Rings of Perseverance before I even start my questing . So Having those 12 levels of Warrior to pick up Ferocity and Clout is no problem .

The point here is that it is a really easy to research Stat Growth and play around with Stat Planners to come up with some really cool builds . I encourage you players that are new to the game to give it a try .

A really good point , And I daresay you'll never be disappointed with a good High Mag Caster at your side . Plus if for any reason you don't feel like using the MK's buffs , You have your trusty Facemelter to buff for you .

@Twizted_Jedi, when I saw your responses to @JeffsonP's on stats planning, I remembered my panic episode...xD. Thanks bro, Femme is much better now following your re-planned build. You are the man when it comes to builds!!

Folks, I have a question - I see many pawns wearing Dragonblood ring (which increases many resistances). Is it better to farm Everfall where the drop rate as per wiki is 2% or should I get it from The Black Abbey (post-Daimon)?
