In the right hands, a whitesmith can be a devastating dps class with abilities to break, repair and even make weapons. A very fulfilling class to play which doesn’t require huge amount of learning to play successfully, imo anyways. Once you have your BM down pat you’ll be a formidable opponent.

Pros & Cons of Whitesmith

Pros

  • Can Break and repair weapons
  • Only class that has the ability to upgrade weapons with an extra 10% success chance (At 70 job)
  • Has a cart for extra weight
  • High DPS

Cons

  • Unable to mvp as well as other classes, but still very capable
  • Spends extra money on spamming CT and using maximum over thrust
  • Levelling is usually very long and tedious if you’re soloing all the way to 99


Rundown of Stats

Strength

  • Increases your physical damage
  • Increases carrying capacity

Very important stat for a WS since it increases your dmg and weight

Agility

  • Increases ASPD
  • Increases flee

Fairly important for CT speed, get a medium amount

Vitality

  • Increases Max HP & regen rate
  • Reduces chance of being stunned, and reduces the time of how long you get stunned for
  • Pots heal more with higher vit

Need fairly high vit to reduce stun n heal more, fairly important stat for WS

Intelligence

  • Increases Max Sp, Mdef & sp regen
  • Reduces chance of some status effects (sleep iirc)

Not very important, get 1-10 if any, you can always use sp recovery items.

Dexterity

  • Increases Hit rate
  • Slightly increases ASPD (Not as much as Agility)
  • Increases forging success chance

Important so you are able to hit things but not as much as other classes due to the bonus hit you get from Weapon Research. Very important if you’re forging.

Luck

  • Increases Crit rate
  • Slightly decreases chance of status effects
  • Increases forging success chance

Only important if your forging, other then that you won’t need any luck.


Stats/Skills/Gear

Battle Smith

Edit: Tweeked build to have more dex (thx Glenn) and included a few things I missed.

This is the build I would recommend to use for WoE, as well as levelling, although you may have to drop some vit for dex depending on what you’re training on. Has a nice 130 str with 185 aspd and decent HP. Although you will constantly need link to keep up Advanced adrenaline rush, in most decent woe guilds, this shouldn’t be much of a problem. While in PvM you will most likely be using a multipurpose CT weapon anyways such as +7-+10 Quad Diligent Orcish axe, so you won’t need link.

If you are unable to obtain items such as valk armor, Horn of Buffalo and Combat Knife there are other alternatives including the following.

Armor

  • Meteor Plate – Armor is high and gives an extra 30% resistance to stun and freeze
  • Glittering Jacket - Not as much armor as meteor but still decent. Also gives +5 Mdef
  • Saints robe – Pretty much the same as Glittering but slightly less def.

Accessories

  • Another vesper core 02 – The str bonus is good and you also get 1 def, 3 mdef and 10 atk.
  • Ring of muscle – Pretty cheap and the str bonus is best you can get for accessory.
  • Hide Accessory – Either rosary or ring. Rosary for extra mdef and ring if you arn’t confident about switching accessories quickly when you think an asuras coming your way. In this case you would increase your base str so you can have it on always. Having the reflexes to switch effectively and dodge asuras benefits you greatly and is somthing you should work on. It is possible to dodge a ruwach asura if you have precise timing. (Props to Khalin for most of that)
  • Sight Accessory – Either ring or rosary depending on your situation like before. Simply for sighting hiding/cloaking characters.

Weapon

  • +7-+10 Quad Diligent Orcish Axe, +8-+10 Double Diligent Morning Star, +7-+10 Diligent War Axe, +7-+10 Triple Diligent Mes (Downside of mes is you’ll need to keep up wep perfection and need link for it to be effective)
  • Combat knife: A combat knife is a WS best friend. Due to its armor piercing capabilities, overall it is probably the best weapon available and should be every WS’s goal of getting one. The extra 10% resistance to demi-human is just another great bonus to the wep. An icepick is mostly a luxury but can also be an alright investment against high def targets, although it is only situational and most of the time CK is more useful.
  • Hurricane’s Fury: Indeed this weapon is incredibly strong, but since its two-handed you will be taking 40% more dmg compared to using CK and thara so its place doesn’t belong in woe imo. No point in being able to deal high dmg when you’ll prolly die to 1 SB. Can still be a decent PvM weapon if your not worried about taking larger amounts of damage since you don’t have a shield or arn’t worried about using pots.

Note: Cart Termination is NOT increased by % dmg increasing cards (example: Drainliar, Orc skel, Hydra, etc) only attack increasing cards like Zipper bear and Andre. CT can be elemental.

Now onto the skills:

And merchant skills:

Copy and pasting skill descriptions seems like a waste of time so for a list of BS and WS skills refer to these sites.

Forging Build

Forging is completely based on your job level, luk, dex and type of anvil used. Therefore pump your dex and luk to 99. Using these gears above, you can hit 178 luk and 161 dex. Success chance of forging is written below as well. I know the valk armor is probably going a bit over board, but hey if you really wanna slot a baby leopard card into valk armor, go ahead XD. This build also includes +3 dex food and box of gloom which aren’t to hard to come across. It also includes the +20 stats effect from gospel and +30 luk from Gloria. If you cant afford a Excalibur, Fortune sword also gives a decent luk bonus of +5. (Sorry I don’t have a lot of knowledge about forging smiths)

Base % chance: Skill Value + Job level * 0.2 + dex* 0.1 + luk* 0.1 + 50

  • Lvl 1 Weapon – 0%
  • Lvl 2 Weapon – 20%
  • Lvl 3 Weapon – 30%
  • Star Crumb – 15%
  • Elemental Stone – 20%

Anvils also improve you’re forging success. Up to Golden anvil can be bought at the Blacksmith guild in bottom right Geffen. Emperium anvil only drops from OBB and OPB. % Chance increase amount is below.

  • Normal Anvil +0%
  • Oridecon Anvil +3%
  • Golden Anvil +5%
  • Emperium Anvil +10%

(Not 100% sure if these are correct)


Levelling Guide

Lvl 1-30: First 10 lvls will be the easiest of your RO life. Talk to all the npc’s in the novice training grounds and kill some monsters there until you get to job level 10. Do the merchant quest (you need some zeny so sell your loot). Once your merchant, head to Payon dungeon. I usually stay here to about 25-30. Another option is ants at Anthell or even mobbing wolves 2 maps south of payon with cart revo (Thx to Skanna for this suggestion ^^)

If you have money to spend on ygg leaves and a friend who can tank anubis, try using the ygg leaves to res them. Gets you to 50 job very fast.

Lvl 30-70:
Once your 30, I would recommend just making an archer/mage class and leeching at either geos north of einbroch or outside ice cave. This is probably the fastest way to exp but if you wanna grind the old style way, I guess you could try metallings north of Lighthalzen, or maybe toy factory. Another option is mobbing
By the time your 50 job you should be roughly lvl 65 base. Once you job change, go back and leech at geos or outside ice dun till 70 base. At this point you should probably start questing, its easy exp and is usually pretty fast if you’ve done them before.

Lvl 80-99:
Once your 80 you could either keep questing or start grinding at High Orcs one map west of the map outside of Orc Dungeon. Before you can start at high orcs though, you need to get your hands on a +10 2x Orc lady, 1x hydra, 1x Vadon Battle Axe. With this wep, BS buffs, endow and 110 str you should just be able to OHKO (one hit Knock off) High Orcs with Mammonite. After selling loot, you’re only losing about 500zeny per kill if your using lvl 10. Thara carded shield will come in handy. Get some equips to hit 120-130 str so you can use a lower lvl Mammonite to OHKO. Rings and magni’s cap are useful and give nice bonuses. Remember to round your str to groups of 10. Weight shouldn’t be much of a problem with your cart so you can easily bring along a lot of hp/sp recovery items. Even meat with hell poodle card heals a decent amount and is really cheap to buy.

If your bored of HO you can try hillwinds with earth endow weapon. With 120 str you can one hit KO which shouldnt be to hard if you use a bloody axe which also gives a nice speed boost. (Thx once again to Skanna for this suggestion ^^)

Resetting to agi smith and using a light epsilon left of nifflheim gives decent exp as well.

Lvl 1-30 Rebirth:
Go kill ant eggs, porings, fabres or ygg anubis etc until your High merchant. Then continue onto Payon dun like before.

Lvl 30-70: Same places as stated before

Lvl 70-85: Once your back at this level, you can go back to high orcs/hill winds and keep grinding, or try another place like gonryon dun. They give less exp, but the loot is much better. Use a +7-+10 Quad diligent Orcish axe with 120str and endow and you should be able to 1 hit KO without having to use any BS buffs except maximise power. If you’re planning on using BS buffs, you can drop your str to 110. If you happen to have a Hurricane’s fury, it’s a nice weapon to use since you will only need 80 str, endow and power maximise to OHKO. If you don’t have these, bloody axe with endow or 2 handed fire axe with 120 str also does the trick.

Lvl 85+:
Try places like Abbey with aspersioed weapon, Odin temple against skogul and frus, possible thor but most likely a lot harder now they have been buffed up. Keep grinding at high orcs if you really want to.

Bio3 HW wiz spawn is great exp as well. Use an immaterial sword for maximum damage and you’ll need marc and dokebi carded armors. HP support is also recommended. (Props to ryuk and Anytime for reminding me ^^)

If you have access to an Ice pick, CT Ice titans with lightning loader in Ice Dun 3.
(Thx Bane for this suggestion)

You could also completely ignore these places and leech your char most of the way at thor with a sniper or TKM.


PVP Guide

I’ll now give a quick run down on how to deal with each class in pvp. I must admit though, WS can be jipped pretty easily in pvp without the right equipment.

Sniper Vs Whitesmith – If they’re in DS build, you should be able to win the fight. You can try simply tanking the ds untill you get close enough to CT or if you keep getting arrow repelled, slap on a Strong shield to stop their arrow repel from effecting you and tank the ds till you get close enough to CT. If they manage to ankle snare you, hide and keep hiding straight away after they detect until the snare runs out. If they are a pure FA build the fight is probably a bit harder since breaking their wep wont make much difference and they most likely have more vit. Pretty much same tactics as before.

Clown Vs Whitesmith – If they’re not linked and you have a marc card, it shouldn’t be a very hard battle. While they’re using AV, walk up to them and CT them. If your unable to get close to them, hide and wait for them to come close to use IC or sight. Now they should be close enough for you to CT. If you they link it will make your job much harder since they can bragi themselves to spam AV/Tarot faster (coma card hurts :<). Also, they are able to use slow grace to completely screw over your aspd. (iirc last time I played ws which was in v2 slow grace didn’t cancel cart boost but I think its supposed to)

Gypsy Vs Whitesmith – Same tactics as vsing Clown except gypsys can stun you with scream. Don’t worry to much since your high vit will give you high resistance to it.

Lord Knight Vs Whitesmith – Can be a tough battle since both classes can deal good dmg but a LK has much more HP and will be fairly resistant to stun. If they are a BB build, just straight out CT. If they switch to a spear and use the spear stab spear boom combo, try using a Strong shield to stop the knockback. Watchout though because you’ll be taking an extra 20% damage from their BB which can really hurt. If they’re spiral build, try hide dodging it then CT. Watch out for the spear stab combo once again. Good luck

Paladin Vs Whitesmith – Probably something you want to avoid. If they’re using matyrs reckoning, in most cases you won’t be able to out damage them (unless they have really poor equips). If they’re SC build your chances of winning are probably high, but still, these guys are tanks.

Professor Vs Whitesmith – STAY AWAY!! These guys are your worst nightmare. Dispel gets rid of all the many buffs WS has to offer which leaves you pretty much useless until you rebuff. Soul burn is a real pain if you don’t wanna use pots. There isn’t much you can do to profs since they can just sit in their safety wall and tank your CT. Anyways, if they’re bolter prof, use hide to dodge it and switch ele armors depending on what bolts they are using. Once you switch to ele armor watchout for stone curse and frost diver.

High Wizard Vs Whitesmith – Can be an annoying fight. Quagmire lowers your aspd a fair bit (can’t remember if it cancels cart boost >.<) and they will probably try to keep you away with sight blaster. You can try using strong shield so you can stay close to them but be cautious about the extra damage you’ll be dealt. If they decide to stay in a safety wall, keep CTing them because the stun effect still goes through. Hopefully they shouldn’t have a great deal of vit so you should b able to keep the stun up before they can recast another SW and kill them. Chances are their cast will be quite fast but still try to hide dodge if you got good reflexes.

High Priest Vs Whitesmith – Another fight you want to avoid. There isn’t much you can do if they keep using decrease agi n stay in a SW. They shouldn’t be a big threat to you anyways so you prolly won’t need to kill them very often.

Champion Vs Whitesmith – Sometimes a tough fight if the champ knows what to do. If there TSS cast isn’t very fast, simply walk up to them while they’re casting and CT them to death. If it is fast, they will most likely dec agi then TSS then snap away before you can get close and repeat. If so, hide n hopefully they will get close to ruwach you out. Pop out of hide n CT away. If they try to go for the straight out asura, either try to hide dodge or get a quick CT in during the cast n hope for stun. If your fully equipped with CK, F beret, thara, raydric and assumptio, every now and again you might be able to tank it with a very small amount of hp left.

Assassin Cross Vs Whitesmith – If the sinx is using SBK build your chances are slim since you rely on getting close to deal damage. While the sinx can simply keep his distance and escape with cloak. If your lucky you can get to him before SBK delay is over and CT him once or twice n hope for stun to kick in. If they are SB build your chances are higher. Use sight n tank the first SB and start spamming CT before he can recloak. If you’re quick, you can get a CT in before he manages to switch to Thara/CK. If he stuns keep killing him. If he manages to recloak, use sight and run around trying to uncloak him or just wait for him to come back and SB you again. You should b able to tank 3+ SB’s anyway so it shouldn’t be much of a problem.

Stalker Vs Whitesmith – Not incredibly hard to beat if you don’t get stripped. If they’re DS build, they shouldn’t be able to deal much damage while you’re geared. Just try to get close enugh for CT. But if you get near them they’ll most likely chase walk away. This is where a magnum break accessory can come in handy to knock them out. If they go in straight for the strip, CT the hell outa them. Since they are DS build they will probably have low vit so they’ll stun easily. Wear ED if they’re trying to strip you by using stone curse with seeker card or freeze with marina card bow. But if they manage do to strip you, well there’s not much you can do but go down fighting. Also carry some RJ for curing other status ailments. If they’re BB build, use pretty much the same tactics. But take care though, BB is deadlier then DS.

Creator Vs Whitesmith – Another fight you want to avoid. Because of your high vit you’ll take pretty insane damage from AD, plus the additional damage being dealt from his homun at the same time. Not much you can do against a creo. Even if you manage to stun lock him, his homun will still be dealing pretty decent damage if it has nice stats. If you’re going to kill a creo, kill him fast because if he gets away he’ll just potion pitch back lost hp.

Whitesmith Vs Whitesmith – Basically whoever has the better equips, higher str and higher vit will win. Simply spam CT and hope for the best, not much else you can really do. Good luck

Super Novice Vs Whitesmith – Kinda like a vsing a HW, except they usually have close to instant or instant cast. Surprisingly, SN can be a pain to kill because of their large array of skills. Most likely they will dec agi you, run a bit then bolt you and repeat. Hard to get close to but once you do, they go down pretty fast.

Gunslinger Vs Whitesmith – Afaik, gunslingers don’t have any skills to repel you so just tank their hits till you get close n CT away. Beware of Desperado, it’s a pretty insane killing machine.

Star gladiator Vs Whitesmith – Not a very common class in pvp and I don’t have much knowledge of vsing them either, but ill still add them. If they’re using heat to suck your sp you’ll need some sp recovery items. Pretty much just CT them to death. Don’t forget to bring another weapon other then CK since your link will be gone after he FSK’s you.

Ninja Vs Whitesmith – Just get close and the fight should be over since afaik CT ignores their evasion skill (cant remember its name xD) Sight if they hide. You shouldnt need to worry about their issen i think its called, the asura like skill anyways since you should be able to tank it.

Battle Mode

The use of battle mode is essential for a whitesmith. With the amount of buffs and equipment you’re going to be using you need to be able to use it effectively for maximum efficiency. I’m not going to tell you exactly where to put every item in your BM because really it’s up to you on what your use to. The only things I would suggest are having things like all offensive skills on a certain row, equips on another and buffs on the other.


WoE Guide

WoE is one the things I enjoy most on RO and is what keeps me going but I must admit I haven’t had a great deal of woe experience on WS. Here’s a quick summary of what I know anyways.

Things you should be carrying on you include Mastela or whites, RJ or blue pots since keeping up WS buffs and CT consumes your sp quite fast, a few green pots if you aren’t carrying RJ. Speed pots, a few str foods in particular and other foods such as dex and vit if you have them available. Also use either Wind or Earth ele converters to by pass raydric and to own frozen players if your using wind. Don’t use water or fire because valk shield gives resistance to them. Don’t forget to carry Iron ore, Iron, Steel and Rough oridecon for repairing your own and guildies armor/weapons. A few authoritative badges may come in handy as well.

Thought out most of woe, wear your combat knife as your primary weapon. It deals the nice damage as well as extra resistance. When rushing a precast you can try normal attacking the clown/gypsy in a duet (usually lokis) at the entrance with meltdown on to break their wep and stop the song. Chances are they’ll have a golem carded wep but hey, there’s still a chance they don’t. Speed pot through to the wiz line then use cart revo with a status wep to help break down the precast. After that, switch back to CK and help pick off stragglers.
When defending just do your bit and contribute to killing off attacking guilds. Repair any of your guildies weapons or armor if necessary.

This is more aimed at FE woe. Because of my time zone I haven’t had the chance to test SE yet so don’t have any experience in that area yet, sorry.


How to make Money

Heres just a quick section on some ways of making money on a WS.

Farm at geffenia: Need an icepick for this to be most effective. Kill succubus, incubus and AK’s and overcharge the loot.

Gonryon dun: Farm RJs by killing peach trees. Not as fast as geffenia but still gets a decent amount of money per hour.

Abbey Sanctuary: Killing banshees and ragged zombies for wool scarves and tidal shoes. Its up to you whether you sell them at +0 or overupped.

Hunt Valk shields: Need a HP friend to do this. Use SW to tank it and spam CT till its dead. Use cursed water for shadow ele attack. Doesn’t require anything weapon in particular. Hurricanes fury gives the highest damage afaik. Having no shield won’t make a difference since you’ll be in SW the whole time.

Forging Elemental Weapons: Lots people pay money to have elemental weapons. Hunt or buy ingredients and forge away!

Over upgrading weapons:
Using the WS skill refine weapon you can overup weapons much easier, especially at 70 job (giving you 10% better chance) Upgrade anything you can get some money for ranging from comps to infils.


Conclusion

That’s the end of my guide, thx for reading and I hope my guide was some use to you. This is my first guide so if theres any pro WS’s out there, please comment on anything else I missed. Thx ^^

  6. Get a Tomahawk vs Sniper ;P

    (Report comment)

  7. HF is definately a good option for WS though personally, I prefer WS more as a tank. One on One you can get away with chasing with thara and switching into HF before the CT is used but in WoE, your survivability is cut drastically by the lack of a thara. Any sinx with good damage would take you out.

    Tomahawk is meh against sniper. It helps but since it’s two handed, you won’t be able to tank as much DSes nor would you have strong shield for arrow repel. Meltdown no longer stacks with Toma so that strategy no longer works

    Also Errende Ebecee has been fixed so it only activates pneuma upon a normal attack, skills don’t activate it.

    can cart termination miss?

    please reply..thx before^^

    (Report comment)

  17. Since no one is answering, I guess I will.

    Cookie Cutter WS build is around
    65 agi 65 dex total.

    I don’t see why Paladins would be hard to hit (CT ignores autoguard and reflect shield btw).

    Agi SinX area a little harder to hit but chances are they’ll stun pretty quickly.

    Thorn Shield + Horn of Buffalo is definately a good option to consider.

    22 Dex is VERY low though it could work. To be honest, I prefer 70 agi and 40 dex on a WS since I use it mostly for WoE. Anyone who uses flee for WoE is stupid, 40 is enough. Anyone who ACTUALLY has enough flee to dodge you when you have 40 dex won’t have enough vit to block stun anyways. More agi and less dex is just more wasteful on zenny though possibly faster DPS.

    CT can “miss” it deals a small amount of damage instead. Stun from the skill still applies so if you miss a sinx, you’ll do around 5 + damage with a high chance to stun.

    CK is great for offense, though definately not as good as Hurricanes. CK ignores defense so high vit characters will get hit for insane amounts of damage while characters with little vit will simply get stunned and die anyways. CK is prefered for survivability, HF for pure brute offense.

  20. mmmm if you’re talking abot the damage to deal to high vit chars, y prefer ice pick than CK, its just my opininon

    (Report comment)

  21. That’s a pretty good build Will. I think it’s perfectly fine and will only need a few stat points taken or added in a stat here or there depending on your personal preference. You got the basic and ideas though.

    And Mad, Ice Pick is better for high vit characters of course, CK is for general enemies and should be your basic weapon. You can always swap in ice pick if you know the person has high vit.

    (Report comment)

  22. thx ebis..
    hope u can give me more advice for my WS..
    because i need a super killer WS here with..(with CK not HF)

    With dex 49,it is enough to hit higher agi sinx?
    Or should i reduce some dex to the agi so the ASPD will increase?because you said that Stun of CT cannot miss..

    thx 4 your kind^^

    (Report comment)

  23. yes it can’t miss.. and with sinx it has no problem even you only have 1 dex because they can be easily stunned except when they have orc hero..

    why we were putting dex to my WS is because i want to kill the sacri type paladin whose common build is 99 vit and 94 agi.. you cant hit it with 49 dex and it almost cant be stunned because of high vit.

    hope this would help

  27. “CK is prefered for survivability, HF for pure brute offense.”

    This is incorrect. An HF will never be able to reach the damage of a CK on any geared character. The reason why a CK is so good is because it ignores Physical Defence. Though an HF will give much more atk, the damage is still vastly reduced by Physical Defence.

    “No point in being able to deal high dmg when you’ll prolly die to 1 SB.”

    You will definately tank a Sonic Blow with elemental resistance while wearing an HF. I know for a fact that you will tank numerous Sonic Blows without elemental resist.

    (Report comment)

  28. anyone with mjol build? is it advisable to have 90 agi and like 70 vit 18 dex (with mjol) 95 str?

    (Report comment)

  29. \”This is incorrect. An HF will never be able to reach the damage of a CK on any geared character. The reason why a CK is so good is because it ignores Physical Defence. Though an HF will give much more atk, the damage is still vastly reduced by Physical Defence.\”

    This really depends from server to server and player to player. Admittingly, this statement is right sometimes.

    \”You will definately tank a Sonic Blow with elemental resistance while wearing an HF. I know for a fact that you will tank numerous Sonic Blows without elemental resist.\”

    Again, depends from server to server. A well geared sinx have done around 7-8k damage with edp sb on a stalker I had with 60 armor defense so without thara/valk shield you\’ll be taking almost double that. Most WS have less than 15k hp and won\’t be at full hp all the time. If you can tank an EDP SB, which is probably likely, you\’ll end up with very low health or the sinx is just bad or you have more hp than normal.

    Regarding Mjol… I have no idea, never really had a mjol WS…

  30. I’ll take back what I said, the HF seems to have higher DPS than I recalled.

    I’m just speaking from what I’ve seen on my server. It varies a lot. Most SBs don’t reach over 11K on a 40 def character.

  31. Hey guys what do you think of a mace or 1 handed axe with an incarnation card or thana card?? will it be better than a combat knife?

    Incarnation card = ignores normal monster’s defence when attacking.

    (Report comment)

  32. Lol bloodlust axe =X. To my knowledge the best one handed axe at the moment in terms of attack power is Quad Diligent Orcish Axe. To be honest, slotting incant /thana on a one handed axe/mace would be silly in my opinion. I don’t have much experience with a thana card on low rate but wouldn’t it be much more useful on a +9~+10 double race/damage (orc skellie,turtle gen, AK) mes? I mean, it would have 40 more attack compared to a +9 ~ +10 ice pick (which is hard to get anyways) not to mention an extra slot compared to the ice pick[1]. Just saying, I doubt you would want to waste a thana on that. If you do… I think most experienced whitesmith players prefer def ignore over penetration.

    Incantation would honestly be better on a katar(another card I haven’t gotten my hands on in a 99/70 server but I’ve gotten one shot by a sinx with bloodlust infiltrator 100% of the time with 14k hp). Moving on. Triple Dili Penetration Orcish Axe would do more damage than a CK but I would say it’s a waste of a MvP card and I would use CK anyways so I didn’t have to pot back the 666 every 10 seconds as well as the 10% demihuman redux. I mean, then again with Orcish you won’t QQ hard when you get your FA dispelled which is a really huge advantage. If you have the incantation to waste and resources to make a +9 ~ +10 Orcish with 3 zipper bears, go ahead?

  36. Diligent ?? what is the monster ?

    (Report comment)

  37. zipper bear for diligent.

    HF is the best weapon for me.. once you have got it in +9 or +10 which gives you 40% reduction to medium if i’m not mistaken. that is CK + Cranial already.. and regarding the damage. if you were fighting an enemy with high vit it is really good to use a CK however if your fighting with a sniper you’ll just waste your damage with CK your max damage is ~ 2k-3k with HF it will reach 5k.. based on my experience. still Cart Termination is greatly dependent on your damage. and take note with CK you still need to keep FA to spam to hell your CT. unlike HF you will get additional ASPD if the refinement is higher.. i have a WS agi= 190 aspd.. because of HF and 2 medallion of honor.. and regarding to the OA issues.. it is best to have an +10 3ple dili incan/thana when sieges because you will have a shield on the other hand which gives you additional defense. Valk shield is the best for me because of its 20% reduction to water and fire… Storm gust and Fire Bolts + skin tampering… i think profs are no match even if they dispell you… hope this will help..

    (Report comment)

  38. +9-+10 HF gives you 19-20% dmg reduction.
    CK is the best weapon, even if you don’t have soul link.
    “i think profs are no match even if they dispell you”
    If you get cobweb (and you will get) you won’t kill anybody.

  44. i would personally suggest using a Double diligent +7 thin blade for those who can’t afford CK or Quad Dili orcish axe, it gives more attack than a +8 DD Morning star and offers +10% aspd and has a chance to curse.. Great any-usage weapon

    (Report comment)

  45. High Dex is a Option. Because WS have skill Weaponry Research which give 1 atk per skill lvl never miss. That means you will hit and stun any enemy.
    I prefer Str Vit build, because it better be live than dead, but costs some dps.
    Anyway you cannot have awesome dmg while you have not get icepick or some that ignore DEF.
    I think if you have not such weapon you better brake armor/weap with meltdown and put statuses on enemies. Magnum brake helps alot (brake/status on crowd).
    Soryy for my bad english.

  55. Can CT give an Status?

    If so, then, is a good a idea a +10 Orcish Axe w/ 4 Magnolia, and when the Curse was given, then Switch to the favorite weapon (CK, HF o +10 Quad Diligent Orcish)?

  56. I love this guide
    This is one of the few that don’t FORCE you to be like “(blank) build is the only build that works” – since you explain each stat and encourage every player to create his/her own build.

    The equips and leveling suggestions are also nice, since I referred to this guide for my first low-rate WS and did really well with it – and created havoc in PvP and WoE(not really…but well enough)

    (Report comment)

  57. CT stuns. hmm.. if i’m a whitesmith i wont bother adding status cards on my weapon. just raise and raise and raise it’s atk to deal more damage. that’s CT! you pay 1500z for damage, not status ailments :) raise aspd too and always have a soul link. you don’t need status cards.. just spam CT and you’ll kill them before they get the chance to attack you (or even notice you).

  63. hello,
    I just want to share some battle strategies

    I am using/switching some other equips:
    Guard(Frilldora) Captain Manteau
    Hide Rosary (for Mdef)
    Sight Rosary (for Mdef)

    your MS vs unit in safety wall:
    Cart ram to stun, Cart Revolution to push back 1 cell out off SW then Ram to death..
    If they still manage to SW again, Cart Revolution again then spam

    your MS vs professor >>(man, I really hate these guys)
    1. Cloak-Surprise strategy (works in WoE)
    (be sure your always on wall)
    cloak get close say “surprise !” then spam..
    very useful when spider webbed

    2. Eat their bolt strategy
    i am using 2 elemental armors to reduce or evade their spells:
    Aqua(Swordfish) Lord clothes ** (fire misses, water weak), and Lord clothes of Gnome (Sandman) ** (wind misses, earth weak)
    just use your talent when equipping these stuffs (right instinct = good ankle breaker /omg!)
    hit them many times as you want

    3. rely on reflect strategy
    let them eat their own bolts
    if you have Maya card, great!
    if not (like me Valkyrie server doesn’t have such) you can use Frus card
    Frus card can reflect targeted spell you have 20% chance if +10 (10% if +5)
    their spell will surely kill them

    4. Simply “LET THEM” get near you and you spam

    Oops..
    dispelled?
    eat some speed pots then run away rebuff and try your luck next time..

    Spider webbed?
    1. just be sure your on wall..
    Cloak and move out **you can move out spider web when you cloak^^

    2. rely on strategy #2 or #3
    *** hey i remembered you also carry v shield with Munak card to ankle break their stone curse and also CK
    use strategy #4 they get close to you when they cast stone curse :)

    i wish my experiences help

    whitesmiths are the paladin’s born enemies. wear the aforementioned, and BOOM. same goes for knights (if they don’t zerk), priests, profs (w/out SW) or pretty much any build based on vit / insane overups. you also get a shield to boot for wearing such.

    and I disagree with “tanking” issen. ninjas are known to one hit anything save priests with assump or paladins with defender. even with a +4 bloody/boned ice pick[1]. and since you have insane amounts of vit, uhh, lolwut? the same applies for ninjas. icepick = pwnd.
