(also obligatory FIRST, also yea I made this thread before I saw they were moving the old build topics in so feel free to delete/merge this, whatever works)



So yea I've never actually played a Priest before pre-re or renewal, so I'd like some advice. Been looking around at pre-re archives in this forum and I think I got a decent idea of a skill build, maybe some can comment on possible improvements to it:

http://irowiki.org/~himeyasha/skill4/pri.html?10gXdNsXdAhEbomoqnkdHnak

Also stat advice. I'm thinking at this point like 90 int 90 vit 70 dex. This is really before any bonuses from equipment and what not because I don't really have an idea of what direction I'll go in terms of equipment. Are there going to be significant dex or int bonuses in my equipment? I'd think probably not but I dunno it's been awhile since I've played RO.  

So yea basically any advice I guess on going FS would be helpful, thanks. Also since I probably didn't make that clear, this is a WoE oriented character.

How about this instead? http://irowiki.org/~himeyasha/skill4/pri.html?10gXdNsXdAhEbbmoqnkexAjX

Res level 3 has a cast time and you have no idea how awesome it is to be able to instant cast res someone in a huge mob and then fwing away from there.

Suffragium is an awesome skill for FS priests and wizards would love to party with you if you've got it.

Safety wall level 7 is enough because it gives you the shortest possible cast time on SW, the difference between level 10 is shorter duration and less hits blocked, but it's still very useful.

90 int 90 vit and 70 dex sounds nice for WoE. Use a stat calc and try to hit a heal bonus level on your int including job 50 extra stat points.

Is Suffragium really worth it though? I feel like since everyone focuses on trying to get cast times as short as possible anyway (of course gear plays a large role in that so I can see how in the beginning at least Suffragium would be useful) that the skill has pretty big diminishing returns.

Instant Res does sound appealing, I didn't really know what I wanted to get rid of to get it to 4. Safety Wall 7 seems fine but I've been told 10 is just more useful for MvPing and what not. I guess from a WoE point of view it'll be ok.

why not lower KE? I'm really sure even lv 10 KE won't help you much on PvM or woe either which is reason why I never pick KE beside pre-req before renewal. It's not like Praefatio that can allow me to tank Gloom under night or tank 10 monsters like I did on renewal...

Suff helps a lot, faster cast=faster experience=faster 99.

Especially more so when there is no gear to factor in.

I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure before renewal hit, most people would just build pure FS stat-wise and then get TU 10 and it would work fine.
 
I used a friend's full support HP a lot in Pre (40~50 int unbuffed, 9x dex and vit), and when I felt like hunting random things I could go and Res-Bomb Ragged Zombies fairly efficiently (if you ignore the bgem cost lol).  Since Res 4 is the equivalent of TU 4 for success rate, getting TU 10 would probably be more than enough.  I personally wouldn't even bother with Luk.

KE is indeed useful and don't let anyone say otherwise... pulling, kiting, tanking paired with safety wall, it can very well make the difference between getting one shot or not by skills. It is more dabatable as you get assumptio but I always had a good use for KE.
 
Back then I did FS build stat wise with no luk, got TU in my final leveling stages, worked fine.

I don't get the whole 90+ Int deal. My aRO priest had 78 base Int and it was good. Gave me plenty of Vit and Dex that I wouldn't have otherwise so I could do more than just spam Heal. Also, Safety Wall is superior to Kyrie. I'd only get Kyrie 1(unless you want Gloria) so you can cancel Assumptios when there's trans.

Just go 99 Int / 90 Vit rest dex...
Priest are a no brainer... I never needed anything else on a Support Priest.
Is just a step to become an HP, thats when the fun starts.

And is coming for someone who had a Dex/Vit HP (so it means i love dex builds)... and a bunch of other HPs during pre ren (around 7).

KE 10 is a MUST, dont ever go below that, you need that to properly mob. FOR SURE.

Angelus 2, no need for more. Gloria... you could go with 1, but i usually get 3.

This is for Priest, for HPs is different.

People get higher int for a stronger base heal. That's about it.

SW is superior to KE when you're just standing there.
KE is superioer to SW when you're mobbing.

The great thing about KE is that you don't suffer from flinching when you're trying to mob. This makes mobbing a LOT easier back in the day when you could mob all of the WoE dungeons and high orc areas.

You guys don't want troll non-Monk class on old school? As skills beside GFist only deal 2k-4k damage and you can easily heal 2k 1-3 times and bring your HP back :p :p

And surviving Baphomet attacks (yeah he doesn't have earthquake and LoV yet) with spamming heal like what ????
