Willing to reset to a different build. I have a +9 RWH but not much else for weapons or Gear.
It's all Agi gear and a Crescent Scythe. I'm really just wanting to level as fast as possible.

Thank you in advance.

What kind of armor are you looking for?  What cards are you interested in?  For more HP?  or more Attack?  resisting a status?

If your focus end game is going to be mvping, investing in a valk armor might be an option.  Or a fire armor too.

Ok it took me a while to get the gear but here is my setup:

106/17 (Below all base values)
STR 91
AGI 90
DEX 57
VIT 37
INT 1
LUK 1

+9 Maestro RWH
Fatasm Mini Glasses
Evolved Pipe/Scarlet Rose (whatever I feel like wearing)
+7 Nightmarish Life Link [AGI +3]
+9 Cranial Valk Shield
+9 Immune Nyd Garb
Variant Shoes
3x Cursed Hands (with Phen and Kafra Blossom, and I have another with a Creamy)

+12 AS Imp Spear
+7 Long Horn
+7 Hunting Spear

It's an OB build. I have almost 18k HP with this setup but for some reason I still get hitlocked even with the Phen, and almost get killed sometimes. OB just doesn't seem to want to activate at times it seems.

Then on the other hand, I still can't get the hang of it, I miss mobs completely! I can't really figure out where to target the skill. Someone told me the safest is the square beside me opposite the mob. I still can't figure it out.

Please help on two things:

1. How to use OB consistently.
2. I heard SQ enhances OB damage. I have mine at lvl 10, but some say is excessive. What is the truth to this? I currently have Sacrifice at lvl 1, and IF it's worth it I may reset and put Sac back up to 4 or even max it out.

By the way I also posted on the leveling thread but no reply. Where should I be at this point? I'm trying to gear up for GH Chiv but my hit is too low. Only way is to put a Mummy card in the Long Horn but not sure if worth it...

BlazerMFT:

1. Firstly, turn of "Snap to attack" (the option that immediately moves your cursor over a monster when targetting for a skill.) Makes using OB waaaay easier.

When mobbing, I treat it similarly to mobbing as a Merchant using Cart Revolution: Try to get all of your mob on the same cell. Then you'll want to cast in the direction of the cell your mob is on (preferably right on that cell).

Hope this helps.

Edit: Also, get a Hunter Fly card for your Long Horn if you can afford it. Well worth the price for use with OB. And I use an Orlean's Gown in place of Phen to wear 2x Medals of Honor.

Class:   Currently a 97 crusader Goal:   Solo Nid runs, new world mini bosses and general MVPing with VP Funds:   very low at this point. Gear:   A few good gears such as:
+9 imperial spear (not carded yet, might go with skel archer)
+4 gae bolg[2] (currently hunting petite cards)
+7 LoD helm
+8 royal valk shield
+7 ifrit odins (no idea if odins are still viable armors)

 Stats: not sure about stats yet.
Not entirely sure how to go about stats, or what gears I should be trying to go for. I have a decent amount of supplies from hoarding them for years so I'm mostly set in that department.

How can I improve this char?

Class: 99 Paladin (switching to Royal Guard soon)
Goal:   MvP / WoE / some PvM
Funds: 30m
Gear:   Variants, +7 immune, +7 unfrozen, +7 armors/racial shields
Stats: just reset

I'm thinking about an OB/VP build with sac and shield skills that would be decent at MvP and WoE. Is that realistic? I'm not sure what the stats would look like (100 str/100 agi/100 dex/100 vit)..?

Thanks for any help.

Hey, new to 'sader/etc in general - I leveled to 99 crusader with the fencer scroll mercenary (hah!) so I'm wondering about this Reflect leveling for when I transcend - I have both RoR and RoFL rings and access to decent equipment:

Class: 99/50 Crusader (Transcending soon)
Goal: 150/50 Royal Guard
Funds: ~200m?
Gear right now:
+7 Imm nyd, +11 Imm HBP, many armors
No shields yet as I did not know what to get
Thinking of +11ing my LotD helm though I don't have an AK card yet
+9 Brocca but not much else in the spear department, because again I don't know what weapons I should be getting.
~500 and getting more KVM badges for the spear I guess?

Skill-wise I've only barely scratched the surface and I'm not sure yet what I want to do other than reflect~

Info is scarce on the leveling aspect - I can see many high-end builds and gears (which I'm slowly getting) but inbetween, without abusing Medals/TIs, and because I think reflect leveling with RoR and RoFL could be an awesome thing - please guide me! :D

Thanks.

Class: RG
Lv.: 129/33 (going to be 150 in a good 3-4 weeks)
Goal: WoE (usefullness, not crazy about Sac althought it's useful)
Funds: 1bil
Gear:
CK
Asprika
KvM set
+9 cranial Valk
+9 sacred mission
Variants
2 kafra blossom clips
Abysmal Knight Helm
Variant Shoes
 
Stats:
Str 0
Agi 30 (will probably take up to 75 to reach 188 aspd)
Vit 105
Int 100
Dex 0
Luk 100
 
Supplies:
 
Lots of slims.
Hp Regen Pots.
+20 vit food.
+10 vit food.
 
Goal: Since killing useful classes on an RG is quite hard unless you're sporting a +14 kvm and 1-2 megs I'm thinking of another possible build that involves tanking and Sac'ing BUT that doesn't rely on the sole purpose of sticking to 1 player all WoE. (seems kind of boring)
 
I was thinking of the following skills:
 
Earth Drive (Removes the ME's, the Thorn traps, the manholes,Pneuma)A really amazing skill if you ask me.
Moonslasher (Great in the emp room, forcing people to sit while they try and break an emp is quite annoying)
SQ (if the skill points allow for it): I'd like to do some emp breaking since I find RG's are great at this. 188+ aspd while tanking everything seems nice.
Prestige: 100 luck, 100int=50% magical evasiveness at 150. Nothing Magical will hurt you, nothing Range will hurt you and the only skills that can hurt can just be Guarded, reflected or tanked easily with the right switching of gears.
BC at 1: Removes all those annoying leeches and de-buffs. A real must have for any RG who WoE's.
SS 3: More defense? why not...
 
Other skills that grab my attention:
 
Banding: How is this skill in WoE without relying on other RG's?
Reflect Damage: Is it really that bad and useless Post-Balance patch?
 
How does this sound? A full-tank, support-style, emp-breaking sac'er.

For leveling get yourself an upgraded Brocca(a +9 is like 90mil on valk) and Overbrand. You'll need all the spear skills possible and Shield Spell level 1.
 
For Woe unless you have a +12 KvM or higher don't go offensive and even if you do you won't be killing anyone that matters. Often enough you'll need to have a +14 KvM and access to a Meg. In WoE RG's got a pretty big nerf. Get yourself a +12 and higher KvM and Overbrand in Strings if you wana support at killing but again you won't be as useful as a Sac RG.
 
For MvPing a +12 AS imperial spear+inspiration+VP spamming at 190+ aspd=good MvPing capabilities.
