Keep at orcs till 50s then byaland island (sp) till 60s u can easily solo with red pots n loot is good. After 60s I went to HOs


Edit: BB with low agi will have greater delay/ hard to spam?

About the levelling spot, that's something that can only be done if you change at job 40 (imo) cuz you'll need the hp boost.


About BB, yes, it will be slow, but dex is the main stat that affects speed of BB since BB has a significant cast time. So in my opinion, rather than wasting a lot of points on agi, consider boosting dex/other stats.

What's usually the skill order that's most recommended? And would taking my Swordsman to jlvl 50 help out a lot?

For levelling/pvm, I'd go brandish cuz you don't need to worry about your sp and managing the mob. Also, your best levelling spot's prolly HO which you can 1 hit with Brandish later on, so why not.
 
But yeh, BB is better than Brandish in PvP/WoE situation any day, keeping in mind the fact that you don't mind burning sp pots.

There's no strict skill order when it comes to swordsmen. You concentrate on your masteries and alternate between bash and increase hp recovery. After that you juggle between Provoke and Endure.
 
The advantage of job 50 is being able to get level 10 Endure, extremely useful pvm skill and the whoopin' mdef boost is handy in WoE, especially Retro WoE.
 
P.S Save the items required for platinum skill for they are extremely useful.

Ty and by platinum skill u mean quest skill?

1 more thing I would like to know is that blowing bash does 500% dmg and hits twice so is that 500% x 2=1000% dmg
Or is it 250 x 2=500% dmg??

So with the gear available at this current patch, what setup is needed to 1 hit HOs? It seems like it might be difficult.

120 str, robo eye, alice doll, 3x orc lady+hydra pike(+10)

masquarade, vadon instead of hydra, spear mastery and picky card help increase damage too but I find the above setup pretty good.

Omg so brandish seems pretty foolish now considering the fact that it does only 350% dmg...I was under the impression that bb does only 150% more dmg than brandish...I guess I need to rework my skill build now....

Not really. Brandish works like this:
 
x x x
x x x x
P x x x x
x x x x
x x x
 
I may not have made it 100% accurate, but this is how Brandish Spear works.
 
P is you, and x is/are the monsters around you (corresponding to the very particular cell). Now the cell closest to you gets 560% damage and the cell farthest from you recieves 350% damage. So the further the monster, lower the damage which gradually decreases from 560% to 350% accordingly.
 
P.S you're facing to the right hand side.
 
I hope this might help you a lot. As far as Knight's considered, since there are no transcendents yet, and you are not too rich to support yourself with pots, and might prefer going Brandish.
 
You can go BB when you transcend.
 
Just my recommendation since you're starting on Classic.

Brandish is far from bad. It's much more reliable too, and uses half the SP of BB. And you can onehit HOs with Brandish too. The only real negative thing about Brandish is you have to use spears for it.
