Anyone willing to help me? I am coming back to iRO and I really feel like the OB/RS hybrid is not working.

Now, I want to go full shield, that is max all shield buffs and rely on Rapid Smiting as my main source of damage. I do know tat I will be giving up on Mobbing, even though I can still Earth Drive.

My stats would be
Lv 99 Paladin stats (Have remaining points of 104 RG)
STR 80
AGI 1
VIT 70
INT 50
DEX 70
LUK 1-9

Skills
RS 5
Guard 10
Damage Reflect 10
Faith 10
Defending Aura 10
(Thinking between Heal 10 or Lv 5 Sacrifice)
Gloria Domini 1
Peco Ride 1



I am not sure if I would like to have Lv 10 Heal ( since I thinkI would be soloing a lot) or get Sacrifice to have Party/ WoE options, please help.

I don't think you will be able to solo mobs with Earth Drive. It's still better to go Overbrand / spear in my opinion. You should have enough points to get both shield skills and spear skills maxed (but you might not have enough points for Inspiration, Prestige, etc.)

Vanishing Point will out-DPS Rapid Smiting pretty quickly, even with 1 AGI maybe. Rapid Smite might be pretty good with strings though, I'm not too sure about that one. If you are not looking to DPS and want to be more defensive / supportive you may be able to ditch getting VP.

I would get Sacrifice instead of Heal. Heal does share parts of the skill tree with battle chant if you are planning on getting battle chant already, but with 50 int (or even 90 int) you probably won't have much SP left to use on healing yourself. RGs do have pretty high HP if you have high VIT so you're gonna have to use a lot of heals to get your HP back up. Not much point healing for 2k in a party either when the AB is spamming high heals for 10k each. It's definitely better to run low on HP than to run low on SP as pots/carrots are a lot cheaper than strawberries / blue pots.

Not sure if this will ever be used, but Brionac actually gives level 5 heal too. I use this on my RK / RG sometimes... like when dual client leeching a noob character

BTW, defending aura is max lvl 5 not 10 too.

Heal is useless since you will be having 40k+ hp and only being able to heal for ~2k.

The only time I ever thought Earth Drive was viable for leveling was when reflect leveling was still big, it was extra chip damage to help clear off mobs a tad bit faster...

Also, I don't see the point of maxing shield reflect... too situational, and 5 skill points spent better elsewhere.

Max Cavalier Mastery....

Defending Aura maxes at 5


For leveling, full shield is useless, unless you just plan on going to share parties/TI parties all the way to 150.  Which really, doesn't matter what skills you take as long as you know how to mob.

End game, a full shield build will only be used for supporting.  And even then, skills like Shield Press aren't quite useful.

Best all around shield is slotted sacred mission since it can't be broken. If you have fcp, then other shields like valk shield, immune shield, imperial, cross shield all have their uses.

Hi, is this skill-build ok?
Goal: WOE/PVP/MVP (BP / OB)
http://irowiki.org/~himeyasha/skill4/rgd.html?10JkCBcFkFuObxGS5GC1rfrnbfkAIn
Is PPA 4 ok? I thought the most people will use kvm/Bg weapons.

Base-Stats: Something like this
Str 100~
Agi 90-95~
Vit 100-105~
Int 40
Dex 85-90~ (??)
Luk 1 (??)

Looks okay to me. Make sure your DEX is at least 90 for the heroic backpack bonus, if you have that item.

You can add a little bit of LUK for the extra ATK / HIT if you want to (cheaper than STR / DEX) but not too much LUK.

That looks pretty good to me already. For boots there's Variant shoes, diabolus boots with firelock soldier (need +9), green ferus, matyr to name a few options. Medal of Honor and glorious ring are pretty good accessories but you require KVM / Valor badges for those.

Imperial spear is probably the best all around PVM / MVP weapon. Glorious spear is a good idea for WoE but you can also maybe get a vellum spear for the meantime.

Defending Aura and Guard are a must for being a tank.

I am not really into either PVP or MVP, so I think I will get Glorious Spear as you advised. I won't change my accessories now tho. For the boot, seem pretty nice thanks for the advice. ^^

I already have those two, Guard is lvl 8 tho :( but I guess that's okay~ Not that bad, eh?

Yeah, looks like you are on the right track already. You can consider going high AGI (90+) if you want high single target DPS with Vanishing Point, as you can spam that skill at the rate of your ASPD. Glorious Spear also requires KVM btw.
