I didn’t get a chance to show my new skill build for my Assassin the past few weeks because I’m so busy with my work but now I have free time to post regarding my build and a new skill build I’m thinking. First of all, I decided to reset both my stats and skills because I felt weak during colo and 1 on 1 PVP. Though my skills and stats are well balanced before, I was itching to see my attack power reach 3k+. So now my stats are 50 Str 28 Agi 5 Vit. I sacrificed my Agi a little and max out my Strength to gain more damage. I realized that its better to add Str other than Agi for Assassins due to the skill Shadow Form which gives out 30% of attack power. Having a high base attack power  will increase the bonus attack I can gain from Shadow Form and its worth it, I assure you.

Stat Previous Current
Str 41 50
Agi 41 28
Vit 1 5

To compensate for the missing Agi and Crit, I am using Maestro Dexterity Boost Potion which is good for 30 sec and Buff foods  while fighting any boss. To increase my Str and Atk Pwr, I am using the Maestro Strength Buff Potion which gives me additional 22 Str. With full buffs, I can attain 3k damage with 44 crit rate. Bear in mind that I am still using Darkness valkyrie (both with +8 Agi runes) and Desperate Apostle (both with 2 +7 str runes)  Armor in my upper, bottom, glove and shoe and Bapho N Helmet (with +8 Str rune). I know some of you will ask why did I equip those over upgraded runes, well I also don’t know why. Maybe I just want to see my character strong even I haven’t got any good armors. As for my weapon, I’m currently using +8 Colo Weapon with 2 +8 Str runes.

Oh, and I managed to complete my Aromine Card Set yesterday. I bought an Aromine of Abyss Card for 10k from some random player. Good thing he accepted my offer because the price of the card in Auction is ridiculously high and overpriced. Now I am super poor lol. Need to farm those herbs again (btw people have been messing my business because alot of players started farming herbs and selling them in low prices *Damn you Jumbidesho* lol)

Going back to my build, I mentioned that I also reset my skills. (To view my previous skill build, click here) The changes in my skills are the following:

  • Increase Poisoning Weapon from level 1 to 5
  • Decrease Combo Training from 3 to 1
  • Decrease Shadow Fiend from level 3 to 1
  • All else remain the same

I know many of you wondered why I maxed the poisoning weapon. My logic for that is High Str = High Damage in Poison DOT. Simple as that. I gave up passive skills to get that but now I’m kind of slow in getting combo points. I don’t care about Shadow fiend but I think combo training really helps so I might reset my skill again. Below is the screenshot of my new skill build:

BladeFuryv2

Though I might change that to

BladeFuryv3

Well, we’ll see if I make up my mind to reset my skills again. Zeny nowadays are very hard to earn in the game. Thanks for reading and appreciate all of your views here on my blog!

Update

newbuild

The image above will be my new build for RO2 NA. I decided to set shadow strike to 1, use the remaining skill points to Dark Illusion 1 for faster leveling and additional dmg skill, Shadow Fang 1 for farming of Materials, and Max Combo Training for faster combo point generation. This by far is not the best build for assassin but would really help a player from the early levels to 50.

Ok, so today I learned how to bug the daily quest though I haven’t tried it. I’ve been hearing bugs regarding it lately but I haven’t seen anyone doing it. Good thing my friend knows someone who abuses it everyday. Lowlives – yeah I know, that’s what I call them and those are the people who don’t know how to play the game fairly. I have low tolerance against hackers and bug abusers and I despise them. Sadly, Asiasoft doesn’t even care about it. The only thing they want is to earn m0ney and milk us players. Sorry, but I will never use real money to this game and I’d rather wait for the release of RO2 in our country and hope that this things will never be repeated and won’t happen again.

As each day passes by, the inflation rate and economy of ro2 is getting worse. Good thing I discovered a way to farm and earn money without abusing the game. Due to security reasons, I’d rather not share it to others and keep it to myself and my trusted friends. 😀

Union

I’ve been checking a lot of websites and blogs for guides regarding the Union System in RO2 but it seems that those are incomplete so I decided to consolidate all of the guides in to 1 and give credit to the people who put their effort just to create the guides for the union system. As for my part, its very hard to try out all the unions just to know each of their quests and most questions asked by people are regarding the location of the NPC where you can exchange the union points and what items are available for each union. I will list down all the unions that you can join after you reach level 50, the location of the NPC and the items that can be exchanged for the points you acquire after you finish each quest.

By the way you can access the Union Window by pressing the semicolon key (;) in your keyboard. In addition, you can also leave your chosen Union but first you need to complete or abandon all the union quests, open the union window, click the icon of your chosen union and a window will pop-up that asks you if you want to quit which is shown below:

quiting union

Unions

Currently, there are 6 unions available which are:

  • Prontera Knightage
  • Darkness Shadow
  • Magic Academy
  • Odin Orthodoxy
  • Hunter
  • Alberta Merchant Alliance

Each unions have their own unique quests and rewards. You can choose any union although most people, especially newbies tend to choose the union specific to their class  (i.e if you are an Assassin, they choose Darkness Shadow which I did and I regret it) though I recommend you check first what materials and/or items you need and what your goal is after you reach the level cap (for example, if your an Assassin like me, you need Fragment of the Unknown which can be exchanged for 14 points in Odin Orthodoxy, Colossal Bradium Piece which can be exchanged for 14 points in Alberta Merchant Alliance). Based on this, you can save time and effort by choosing the right union for your character.

assassin

For those who are asking for my build (especially my guild mates), this is the skill build that I use for my assassin. So far, I’m doing good in 1 on 1 PVP but average in Colosseum. This build utilizes all the basic skills of an Assassin like Shadow Explosion, Shadow Fang which is your main offensive skills and the prerequisite skills needed like Shadow Form, Combo Training and Shadow Fiend. My build focuses on combos and criticals to deal max damage to PVE and PVP which is why Shadow Cloak and Genocide Mark is Max at 5. The downside of this build is the decrease in mobility as an assassin because I didn’t add hiding exceed. AOE is not really an option when it comes to Assassins so don’t add points to Shadow Fang and Meteor Assault. Cross Impact and Grimtooth(though you can gain combo points while using it) are worthless skills but is required for other skills so just put 1 point to each skill. Double Attack and Deadly Blow is still your bread and butter when it comes to PVE. Shadow Assault is good for both PVE and PVP because it lets you leap towards your enemy and it also includes fall damage(stun) for 3 seconds.

Stats:

STR 41 (gives Damage and Block)
AGI 41 (increates Crit and Evasion)

As for my stats, I focused on STR and AGI, all else are set to 1. Vit doesn’t give you much so I only depend on gears for my Vit and HP. With this build, I can get around 40% critical rate using Archer’s Agi buff, Genocide Mark, Shadow Cloak, Level 40 PAtk, Matk, Crit Food, Level 50 Agi buff potion + Level 50 Agi boost potion. With that rate, I can crit 8/10 from my attacks which is considered as a full crit assassin although if not using an agi boost potion, my crit rate drops to 36% which is still not bad considering that no other class can reach that :D. As for my damage, it’s enough to do DPS on bosses and sometimes tank until our our knight is revived with the help of shadow armor and heal of priests.

Note:
  • Genocide Mark gives 2% crit rate at level 5, not 0.2% so if your crit is 20%, you’ll have 22% when you use the buff.
  • Shadow Armor gives 50% damage reduction to all types of attacks so If the boss hits you with the normal damage of 1000, while your using this buff it reduces the damage to half and you’ll receive 500.
  • Shadow Form gives you 30% attack damage and 30% moving speed, not 30% attack and moving speed.
Breakdown
  • Pros: Average build, High damage to crit ratio, High survivability due to Shadow Armor, balance on PVE and PVP
  • Cons: Less mobility, Vit and HP depends on gears, 1 on 1 fighting
Summary

If you are planning to create an assassin, make sure that it fits the type of player you are. If you are a soloist like me then its the best class out there aside from beast master, wizards and rangers. Moreover, don’t expect that it’s still the same with RO1 that has high dodge rate, survivability and ridiculous attack speed because gravity really nerfed assassins to the fullest. If you’re a party lover, I suggest you don’t create an assassin. You’ll have a hard time joining one because no one wants you, only your buff unless you have friends or guild mates 😀 By the way, you will always look like a werewolf due to shadow form but you’ll get over it soon hehe. This is not the perfect build for assassins but it works best for me. In the end, you can try out different builds and use the ones that suits you and your style.

Nice guide, will definitely try this out. 😀

RO2

In my first review, I mentioned that I have not delved far into the game to make any positive or negative statements about the music in RO2. Well I posted that review a few minutes before I entered Prontera and was really disappointed with the lack of care put into the selection of appropriate music. So I tried to check if I can fool the game system into playing the “Prontera Theme” from the original and it turned out to be a simple endeavor.

First, you open the BGM folder in RO2 by following this path:

Playpark Path

Well, if you don’t find your RO2 folder using this default path, then it’s because you specified that RO2 should be put on another location during the installation.

Under the BGM folder, you would see that the music files were named according to the locations they are played. Here’s an example:

So if you still…
