Star gladiators can be useful in both PvM and WoE. Most people don’t consider this class to be useful, unless it’s for MvPing or farming things. Continue reading my guide to find out what else they can be used for.

Introduction

As we all know, star gladiators are mainly known for leeching, or great classes for PvP/PvM. This is true, but they have another use that is usually ignored by most players.


Emp Breaking Explanation

Star gladiators are great for emperium breaking in WoE FE. The reason for this varies throughout multiple pro’s and con’s. Regardless of the reason you might decide to make an SG, they are much cheaper than other classes to gear and are effective emp breakers at a much cheaper cost than a SinX.


Pro’s

  • -They can get to the emp alone very easily using skills like Flying side kick and Leap.
  • -With the proper equips, stats and buffs, they can break the emp quite easily.
  • -With 190 ASPD, SW’s break very fast as well
  • -Easier to obtain gear for than trans classes.
  • -Easy to make.


Con’s

  • Lower HP than trans classes.
  • Low tanking capabilities compared to trans classes.
  • Really don’t have any other use in WoE than emp breaking.
  • As I said above, they have limited use.
  • Guilds might not take you seriously at first, so getting into a guild to where it matters you can emp break can be hard.


Leveling A Star Gladiator

Leveling a star gladiator is very easy, not only do you not need to trans, but you can level at one of the most EXP giving area’s in the game.

First I would suggest doing a quest, preferably Ice Necklace quest. Ice Necklace quest will get you from level 10 to 69, on the a 10x base exp rate server (for me that is).

Next, you will want to go and get job levels, until you can get stellar/solar heat at level 5, and some basic gears for leveling. As soon as you get enough, you can change job and become a star gladiator, simple as that. If you prefer grinding your way there, you could level at the following spots. (Listed Below.)

Alternate leveling method (No Quests)

Payon Cave: Until around level 40-50

Toy Factory:
Until you are ready to job change into a Star Gladiator. I suggest getting 50 job level to get the fullest out of the class.

Where to level

Leveling spots

As a star gladiator, you should level with your heat skill. Anywhere where there are monsters that don’t move. Obviously, most people will go to Thor to level off Kasa’s. You could also level at owl dukes/baron‘s, and at the same time be making money from Feather Berets. Though I will show the easiest method of leveling. Thors.

Leveling stats

Your stats are going to look something like this:

  • 9x STR
  • 1x-2x VIT
  • 0 AGI
  • 4x-5x LUK
  • 4x-5x DEX

The main skills that you are going to need to level at thors are:

  • Warmth
  • Anger
  • Warm Wind
  • Feeling
  • Hatred
  • Union

Here is a link to the effect and description for each skill if you are not familiar with them.

-Before you get geared and ready to thor, you need to know how to kill them. First, save the map as your map of the stars. Use warm wind level 4 (water), and tele around until you find a kasa that seems to be in a good spot to be killed. Then, use flying side kick. Once on the kasa, activate warmth of the stars and kill it with heat while tanking.

Leveling Gears

  • Book with either 3x AK cards, which later could be used as a good emp weapon. Or a cheaper alternative which would consist of vadon/mino/peco peco egg cards. Refine rate of the book doesn’t matter so much, don’t spend a bunch of time trying to get higher then 8 or 9 unless you get lucky.
  • Pasana armor: Enchant Armors with the Fire Property. DEF +1. Having a pasana armor will help considerably with reducing damage taken at thors, of course there’s a cheaper alternative which would be a swordfish carded armor.
  • Rings/Ring of muscles: Once high enough level, I would suggest you use ring of muscles, but until then, normal ring (0) work fine.
  • Magni’s cap gives you 2 str, and is very cheap. If you can afford it, go for the whole combo to get even more STR bonus. That, or you could get a marrionette doll carded with vanberk card.
  • Muffler carded with Jakk card: Anouther nice reduction (20%) to the fire property. Again, this helps reduce damage taken in thors.
  • Evil Wing Ears: +1 Str, a nice addition.
  • Stone buckler with Penomena Card, which gives you anouther 35% reduction to kasa’s. (that includes the 5% from stone buckler).
  • And finally, shoes. Any shoes will work here, I would use Freya’s shoes, because they are cheap and increase how much you heal with white potions by 20%. You will be using a lot of white potions.

Thor may be harder than you remember if you have done it previously, and that is because the heat skills “ASPD” has been nerfed, and now hits much slower than it previously did. Though, they still can easily kill in thors if properly geared.

Leeching: Star gladiators are amazing leechers, just like when you’re leveling, you do it very fast. You can do the same for other people, and make money off of it.


How to PvM on a Star Gladiator

For doing MvP’s and participating in pvm things as a Star Gladiator, you are going to need some specific things.

  • Safety wall: When killing things with heat, the main skill thats going to keep you alive is safety wall. In case you don’t know, safety walls last for 11 melee hit’s or skill hits and you take no damage.
  • Devotion/Sac: If you have a paladin available, you can further improve your survival rate with devotion. This is a great skill for MvP’s.
  • Prof: Prof can help when you SP need, in case you run out, ect.

The basic outline of how killing is done using Heat.

  • SG = X
  • MVP/etc = 0
  • High Priest = x
  • Tile = -

x—–X0 Priest will spam SW from far away ect.

Visual Guide of the little situation above:

Basic methods like that can be used for tons of situations.


Making Money and MvPing on a Star Gladiator

There are tons of ways to make money and MvP on a Star Gladiator, all of them are based on the Heat skill.

  • You can farm soft feathers at owl dukes/barrons with the right book easily.
  • You can farm multiple MVP’s and mini boss depending on your party and situation.
  • Farm valk sheilds for money.

A simple search on youtube will show you tons of mvps being done by them, and how effective they are for doing it.

Heres another example:


PvP with a Star Gladiator

Just and FYI, you can’t effectively pvp on a Star Gladiator. Even with 190 ASPD you won’t be able to kill someone unless they are an idiot. The best you could do is get a ton of ASPD, high VIT and use a coma book with SP drain to annoy people.

Just a tipStar Gladiators don’t pvp for a reason.


Emp Breaking on a Star Gladiator


One of the most useful tactics in WoE for Star Gladiators is emp breaking, the following equips are recommended:

  • Feather Beret gives you 10% reduction, and is awesome for tanking. (obviously) +6~7
  • Gangster Mask gives you +15% resist to silence, doesn’t hurt to have it.
  • Angel/Evil Wing Ears give +1 str, possibly the best mid headgear for this.
  • An unfrozen (marc card) and/or deadly (evil druid card) are the best armors hands down for an SG. +6~7.
  • A valk shield with thara frog card. +6~7
  • Boots with Matyr card or Green Ferus card. +7~9
  • Manteau with nox or ray, I’d prefer nox considering you will be going in precast and not defending. +6~7
  • Your weapon matters just as much as everything else, the best possible combo of cards to do the most damage to the emp would be 2x AK 1x Desert Wolf. A cheaper alternative would be 1x Desert Wolf 2x orc skeleton.
  • Ring Of Muscle (+4 STR) Two of these OR one and Errende Ebecee.
  • Errende Ebecee Card Rings (This gives you the ability to Pneuma of an emp/tank ranged attacks and make sure SW’s don’t continue to come up on the emp. An amazing card for breaking emps.)

The goal of a SG breaking emps isn’t to require your entire guild to be in the emp room with you, but to beable to do it alone or before your guild gets to the emp. Seeing as your party members just have to be on the same map as you, you can get bonus and get to the emp and destroy it before they even get to it.

Buffs and Stats!

Saving a castle map (Emp Rooms)

Once you reset, you should be given the option to reset your feel maps. Do it, and use them on a few castles you think you are going to attack (save in the emp room). This will give you the attack bonus that you would get from DEX and LUK that you would get at thors. And you get the ability to use heat when on the emp, which can help.

Full adrenaline rush

Full adren rush is an amazing skill for you, at all costs try to get into a WS party, that way you can get 190 aspd very easily. It also is a huge part of your build, other wise you have to sacrifice a ton of stat points in order to get high ASPD.

Foods

I suggest using +5 str food because it’s pretty easy to get and buy, and other basic foods that you think you have the ability to make. Foods help a lot when it comes to emp breaking.

Flying side kick

This skill is key when it comes to breaking the emp, not only can you FSK the emp and be inside of it (making it harder for people to target you), but you can dispel links if you feel the need to. It also is very good for getting through precast. Flying side kick has plenty of uses, getting through precast, getting rid of links (though this really isn’t your job, seeing as you can die pretty easily I wouldn’t try that with a SinX), it also dispels ASPD pots.

Warm Wind

This or cursed water, you want dark element.

Union

Union is what makes SG’s so good at what they do, allowing you to bypass the defence of the emp and do a ton of damage.

Heat

Use it on the emp to drain the SP of others around you.

Leap

This skill is awesome for getting over things, making it even easier to bypass a pre-cast and get to the emp.

Running

This skill is alright, for when you are running to the emp/through the castle, but not something you will be using all the time. You won’t get the attack bonus wearing a weapon either.

This video demonstrates some of what a SG can do in WoE. Credits to Duriel.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GTKLZgV7mkw

Here is another video that shows a SG emp breaking, though, he has no party. Which makes him a lot weaker.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tuiL6UlW5rY

Stats

  • STR: You want at least 120.
  • AGi: With full adrenaline rush, you only need around 50 with no AGI equips and level 8 shadow to have 190 aspd.
  • Vit: You want a ton of this, to avoid being stunned and dying easily. Around 7x.
  • DEX: You don’t want a ton of dex, but at least 2x-3x.
  • LUK: If you have any left over points, put them into luk, because the map that you saved will give you the same bonus as it would as if you were at thors.

After reading my guide, or at least skimming it; I hope you get the basic idea of how effective for emp breaking (with the right situation) that star gladiators can be. That, and how effectively you can level with just basic equips.


Conclusion

In conclusion, I hope you learned a bit about the Star gladiator class and that they can be used for more than mindless leeching and MvPing. They have various uses and should be used by more players!

  14. “Really don’t have any other use in WoE than emp breaking.”
    This is untrue. They deal can deal good damage and sap SP. They simply die very easily. Even against medium sized guilds who know what they are doing, I wouldn’t expect a Star Gladiator to break an Emperium alone.

    “Stone buckler with Penomena Card, which gives you anouther 35% reduction to kasa’s. (that includes the 5% from stone buckler).”

    This is not 35%. You do not simply add two different reductions.

    While a Stone Buckler reduces damage from large monsters, a Valkyrie Shield will give Magic Defence and 20% more fire resistance. A Stone Buckler alone does not give much Physical Defence, which would make Valkyrie Shield a better choice.

    “Muffler carded with Jakk card: Anouther nice reduction (20%) to the fire property. Again, this helps reduce damage taken in thors.”

    This is a 30% fire reduction, not 20%.

    A Star Gladiator should have at least 30 base vit unless they are PvM.

  23. sorry I don\’t get it what makes my heating stronger?
    (STR)?

    (Report comment)

  24. Heat is basicly you attacking a 10 attack/second. Anything that boost your attack (Str, and to a lesser extent, luk and dex) will boost your damage output, as well as books (Careful to their damage modifier and the removal of the spurt bonus), cards, and atk+ item (Shackle+ball combo, for exemple).

    Also note that the blessing also work in heat, so dex and luk boost them somewhat.

    Kihop will also boost your attack by a decent amount (+10% per player in the group alive and on the same map) upto a maximum of 11 (If your server is unmodified and 12 is the max, else there’s no hard cap).

  31. my PVP SG build is
    str 67

    dex 68

    and nothing else, i dont have strong items and i dont use feeling and hatred but i can kill spellcasters like

    highwiz,soul linker,high priest, and even sniper

    the secret is i called it SLS

    SLS- you can use the skills sun,moon,stars without using the feeling

    HOW TO RELEASE SLS– just kill and kill and kill and when it becomes night time you can use sun,moon,star skill AND your damge will increase beacause hatred will also be activated in that map not just in one player but all the players in the whloe map

    COOL =D

    (Report comment)

  32. the only weakness of SLS is it can be dispell by professors and sages and also you can get 190 aspd with just 99 agi,berserk potion,agi up, blessing,and level 8 demon THATS ALL

    (Report comment)

  33. @D-ngA?

    This kill is actually called miracle, it doesn’t have to be at night, when the skill is activated you become bluish, like the link skill…

    That allows you to use the sun/moon/star skills in all maps and at any day…

    Another thing that isn’t showing in this tuto is the days of the skills…
    All even days are sun days(2, 4, 6, 8…)
    All odd days are moon days(1, 3, 5, 7…)
    Star days are those multiples of 5(5, 10, 15…)

    This is based on the server date, normally obtained by @time, also you can know by the timezone the server is in, WoE times are said in a timezone, that’s the timezone the server time follows…

    (Report comment)

  34. This guide is simply horrible, it talks things that aren’t true about the class…
    SG can do a great job with warmth leeching SP from guilds… If in 1.0 it’s a good idea to keep a SG on the emp warp with warmth on…

    The part about saying they cannot PvP is totally untrue…
    You just have to know how to use them, SG’s can do plenty of damage, obviously you might get problems with tankers, for example LKs and pallys,
    perhaps they can easily kill classes like snipers and wizards… As well you can mark players just as you mark monsters, getting a huge bonus to atk against a certain class…

    By marking a map to lvl up you wont be able to use the marking skills unless you are in a private server with a SG reset(few servers) or you can summon the angel(very low chance…)

    This guide doesn’t even talk about hidden skills like miracle and the angel summoning, rms should get a new guide…

    About the flying it’s with the link skill, then you use a SG skill(don’t remember name, sorry) and sit,
    with time he goes higher, perhaps it’s just for fun, it doesn’t help when you “fly”, the skill effects are good doe, you ignore def, that’s a good way of killing a pally/LK,
    but when your hp gets lower than a certain point you die instantly…

    The emp breaking can get to less than 10secs with the right build…

    A great tip for dmg is to have kihop maxed and a big party, you’ll get a great percentage bonus to your atk…
    Also, after you use tumbling, flying side kick’s dmg is greatly increased, I’ve already killed snipers and wizzes with 1 hit using flying side kick while they were marked…

    Anyways, there’s much more from the class, this guide is old and totally incorrect… I have one I’ve made, perhaps it’s in portuguese, maybe I’ll translate it someday and try to put it up here…

    There’s just one thing I never got to test… On woe 2.0 there are the barricades and guardian stones, I still need to see if warmth hits those as monsters or players…
    aIf those are hit as monsters then SGs will be one of the more recruited class for woe SE guilds…

  37. The Star Gladiator can certainly “fly”:

    1) They must get soul link from a Soul Linker.

    2) Once they are linked use the skill “Union of the Sun, Moon, and Stars” or in iRO “Union.”

    3) Sitting will make you float higher, but this has no actual bonus in game.

    Skill Description:
    “The power of this skill is unleashed when linked to a Soul Linker using the Star Gladiator Spirit (if not linked, the SP is wasted and nothing happens).
    When linked, your movement speed is increased and all your attacks never miss and ignore DEF, but you lose 2% of your HP every time you attack a monster and 8% HP every time you attack a player, also if you attack a player when you only have 20% HP left, you will be killed instantly afterwards.”

  38. when link your movement speed increase and all of the attacks will never miss, ignores def, and takes away 2% of Hp ea atk

    do this 2% hp penalty also applies with the heat skill??
