Which class is best for farming? or mobbing. (pre-renewal)
« on: August 23, 2011, 01:31:59 AM »
hey guys i have a lv90 hunter and a merchant with oc and discount. But im trying to make money right now to fund eqs for my other chars. Im quite new to RO, so im not sure which class is best to use for farming. I heard gank rogues are really good? how bout mobbing compared to ganking? which class is best for mobbing, and do i need expensive gears for that?

thx, btw this is pre-renewal.

I would say, if you look for items with a rare drop, like a piece of armor, Gank Rogue may be the best thanks to stealing.
If you're looking for a common loot or Cards (cards can't be stolen), a mobber would be better.
Best Char for mobbing and killing the mob should still be a Knight (for non trans or 3rd Job), and even though the perfect knight equip may be expensive, a low basic equipment is fine as well and cheaper to afford. Make a Vit Knight with either Brandish Spear (have to wear a spear for that build) or Bowling Bash (every weapon is fine) and have fun :)

Are knights costly to use? i thought vit builds are more expensive because you'd have to use more pots n stuff. Can knights mob solo? are they difficult to level?

eh fresh fish and bowling bash. might be sp expensive though without much int. for common loot gank imo easy steal. for cards mob + bowling bash although look over the drops the card might get covered by all the loot.

Since I remember, Vit Swordy wasn't taken serious as starter character because "it's so expensive"... but (before Renewal) I started fresh on a Server with a vit Swordy and I experienced it completly different. I bet it's still that way today.
You may have more HP to heal, but your pots also do heal you more thanks to your vit.
It's often a matter of how fast your mob dies.
If you need more than one hit to kill them, yes, it will cost you some pots.
If you kill them with one hit, they only do relative little damage to you.

Swordies also heal more from pots thanks to their passive skill.

Best farming character pre-renewal imo was Stalker with bowling bash preserved.

But getting to Stalker as new player isn't that easy ;)
Rogue and Knight are both great for different goals (like rare items and cards).

it definitely is; bow rogue with chick hat and skill points in double strafe is ridiculously easy to level.

Depend pretty much on what you want to farm, The best of the best for me in prerenewal is TKM with the proper gear to go dimensional gorge.

A pre-renewal Server may not have the Chick Hat ;o
Don't get me wrong, it's definatly not impossible, but knowing the game, the places, etc helps a lot at leveling a new char very fast.
A new player may not know all the tricks and may take a lot longer.

The server has chick hat, so i think it may be right before renewal? So far with my hunter i've been farming on mavkas for their crystal mirrors and witherless roses and been gaining about 1~2m an hour with oc on my merchant. I was thinking maybe a gank rogue would fare better because they can steal those. When it comes to swordsman classes, i have no idea about their builds nor how to use them so im not too keen on using a knight.

whats an OCA worth on the server? takes ~1-2 hours to make an OCA in izlude arena depending on how quick you are, its good zeni but hella boring.

Knight statting is as easy as the other characters.
stat some dex for your hit, stat vit for your health and str for your attacks. ^^

Anyway, in that case, Rogue would be the best option, yes.
