Ok I've been playing Mechanic since renewal and I thought i''d try something new. I have a Champ which is 96/60 and I was thinking of leveling him upto a high level Sura.
 
Class:     Champ
Goal:   WoE/PvP Sura
Funds:    Not an issue really
Gear:   Got a wide range of gears, just need weapons really (I have Glourious Morning star)
Stats:   I reset his skills / stats so 1/1/1/1/1/1
 
Basically I leveled my champ back in the days of Turtle Island :eek:
Where do champs level and what stats should I be looking at getting?
 
Thanks in advance.
 
Sorry it's a bit blunt :angel:

Hi I would like to ask those who have used Tiger Cannon build for levelling. How about stat distribution like this one:

Str 100+
Agi 1
Vit  100
Int  90+
Dex 80
Luk 1

I know not all my points are used but I want to know if the stat distribution is done correctly. Thanks

Yes, for snap. Otherwise you'll be slower than a peco. With moderate agi, you can get 180 aspd without AR scrolls for snapping speeds faster than speed pots.

Str > vit > dex > int > agi > luk. You make use of all stats, but this is roughly how you should distribute them without spoon feeding you.

GoH is the most successful pvp build right now.

i'm curious about PVP/WoE build for Sura.
how do you build your stat to resist howling of mandragora?
is it 100 VIT and 50 LUK worth?
then how about boosting your agi to get fast snaps?
i've been wandering in this section and they only have 30++ AGI
is it enough?
how about 60 AGI?
thx

Heres the deal, if you have a +9 or higher kvm mace you get an aspd boost. After that you get agi up 10 and then you got awakes and celermine so you should be able to get around 180 aspd easily, with a shield, with very few points invested in agi. As far as mandragora goes, it got nerfed to hell so around 40 luk i enough, with 95 or highervit, to resist it a good percentage.

well, in my server there is no what-is-so-called kvms
i just get it with carga mace and there are no aspd boosting equips in my character build equip

and wanna ask something, faster snaps based on aspd or agi stats (after skill delay?)?
if it is based on aspd, celermine and awakes works fine with that.
sorry for sucks knowledge about this :(

I think I'm looking for a complete final-build for an MVP Sura.  Under reasonable circumstances, what kind of skills, stats, and equipment should I shoot for?

my Sura stat is about 100 vit 30 luk 50 agi and it's going fine...

my only problem is he's gentle-KA build and I'm not snap expert unlike when I'm using AB-puding type...

I guess people are a bit tired of giving advice.

I'm trying to build my MVP Sura, does this skill set look alright at all?  I basically have no idea what I'm doing except getting Guillotine Fist...

Edit: Also, what would be a better weapon?  Lunakaligo with 3 Abysmal Knight cards, Carga Mace with 2 Abysmal Knight Cards, or a Lunakaligo with 2 Abysmal Knight Cards and 1 Minorous card
