PostSubject: ***Blader Skills Build & More***   Sat Apr 19, 2008 1:29 pm

Blader




Pros
+ Best avoid in the game, practically untouchable in PvE
+ Beautiful skills with AoE slapped onto almost all of them
+ Strong and easy to grow

Cons
- No major advantage with PvP like massive defense and long range. Player skill is more required on this aspect.
- Said to have the lowest HP of all classes.

Misconceptions: Blades are NOT slower than katanas. Blades and katanas only differ in attack, magic attack, hit rate, and appearance.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[Introduction]
First Off, this guide is based on MY experience of Cabal(European Closed Beta, and GSP Closed Beta 1&2). As allways, there will be certian strategies/ideas that may be argued. But this is based on my findings, and knowledge gained from friends. Obviously I wont be able to get extremely detailed, but i will try my best tosum it up in a way that will get you on your feet as a successfull blader in Cabal Online.

[The Skills]
First Off here is a rundown of the skills and descriptions of how effective they are.

Sword Rank (Novice)

Flash Draw:
This is one of your very first skills. At first it is Very usefull, it is a 180degree knockdown but deals small damage. I recomend using it before using a more powerfull skill (eg, Flash Draw -> Impact stab) in unison, the mob will take 2 hits and not hit you, providing you knock it down, At low lvls, this will often do the trick. Keep this skill for a whille (until you can replace it with Rising Shot, which is your next knockdown) Do not bother lvling this skill above lvl 9 (the fastest cooldown). Also DO NOT purchase this skill, you will get it for free from the instructor on your second quest.


Impact Stab:
You start off with this skill, its a "piercing" skill which means it will attack through a mob. In this case it has a range of 1-2 which means it will attack up to 2 mobs in front, tho it will sometimes attack the mobs beside if you are surrounded close enough. This skill does fairly low damage, but at first you dont have much choice. Take it no further than lvl 9
(fastest cooldown)

Stab Slash:
Replace "Impact Stab" with this. Its basicly an improved version of impact stab, and works very
much the same way, however it it a 2 hit skill and deals more damage.

Fade Step:
This is one of your basic evasion skills, if used correctly, it can get you out of tight spots. I recomend getting this skill if you plan on pvp. It will break target approx 1/3 of the time, also, when used in PvE it can often give you that extra second you pot up if needed. This skill caps out at lvl 9. So it wont waste a whole lot of skill points. Max it out.

Sword Rank(Apprentice)

Concentration:
This skill is not needed, It merely increases your chance of hitting, and for the most part is not usefull enough to warrant wasting a Skill Slot. When you will have a high hit rate anyways.

Dash:
This is your Second evasion skill, much like Fade step, it can be used in pvp, to dash to an running opponent (or dash away) Also with a lvl 9 cap, max this one out too.

Double Slash:

This is your second, 2 hitter skill. I would skip this and wait til triple slash (at this time you should have leveled up you stab and slash. and should be doing ok)

Triple Slash:
Replace Stab Slash, with this skill, it is very similar yet again, however it hits 3 times, and more damage still.

Sword Rank(Regular)


Blade Force:
Skip this skill and wait for 'Soul blade' as Blade force, Blade aura and Soul blade all fall into the evolution category skills, means they cannot be stacked even after level 140 and level 170 rank up quest.

Death Cross:

This skill is amazing, your first skill that will be doing OK damage, it is fairly slow, but has a knockdown effect, you can replace Flash Draw with this. take it to around lvl 9 again (fastest coll time)

Rising Shot:
get this skill, it is also a knockdown, only vs one mob, but does fairly nice damage too. Yet again, take it to lvl 9

Double Rising:
Replace "Rising Shot" with this, its an improved version and thus does more damage, and in case the name diddnt give it away, it hits 3 times.

Sword Rank(Expert)

Storm Grind:
Get this skill, its a great knockdown, vs 180degrees, it also has a nice crit dmg/rate. Take it to MAX.If you leave it at lvl 9,you will also need to max it in late levels.Fast casting time,helps in combo.

Assault:
This skill allow you to dash to opponents skill, but very fast.Take it to level 9 this skill it is quite useful in the early levels because people like to crowd around places.eg- Mosycthers and WriggleLeaf.Max it after level 75 it will helps you in bossfights.


Hasing Dance:

Damage is not as good as any other attack skills from master above even with max level hasing dance.
Long casting time and cool down time is not worth to up it until level 20. Hence, take it at level 9, It does incredible damage, and hits 8 TIMES!!! not to mention it hits 360degrees. Great AoE and might be one of your final skills.

Max = 8 sec cooldown
Level 18 = 6.4 sec cooldown



Force Kick:
The cooldown rate for this skill is too long so add to level 1 or forget about this skill.Force kick is useful in breaking combo/ knocking down.


Iron Skin:
Get this buff and MAX it. It will give good HP and Defence.It can stack with Aura barrier

Sword Rank (A. Expert)


Mirage Step:
This skill is a great defence buff. Get it, and lvl it up to the max, you will see a lot of misses in PvE.

Round Cut:
This is a generic blade skill, and as such is not very usefull, it hits 360degrees, but you have blader skills that will do that also, and much more damage. Dont waste skill slot on this.


Blade Aura:
Skip this skill and wait for 'Soul blade' as Blade force, Blade aura and Soul blade all fall into the evolution category skills, means they cannot be stacked even after level 140 and level 170 rank up quest.


Mirage Grind:
Get this skill and take it to the max. It is much like Hasing dance, and will match the damage. Spend all your spare points on this as well as hasing dance. You will now have 2 of your final blade skills.

Sword Rank (Master)

Twin Moon Slash:
This skill is very usefull for boss kills, If you havent allready leveled up your magic, i recommend picking this skill up, you aid in killing bosses (ranged) it does nice piercing damage also. Take it to lvl 9 for fast cool time, and then leave it alone.

Aura Barrier:
Take this to the max, it is your final Defence buff (Along with mirage step and iron skin)


Vital Interfere:

This could quite possibly be one skill that gives bladers an edge vs the warrior class. Vital interfere is a great stun. If used in combo, use it FIRST so as to have a higher chance to stun in pvp. in PvE this will actually stun up to 6 mobs (if all close together) despite the misleading description. Do not waste skill points on this until you have leveled up your other final skills. This isnt a damage dealing skill, and should be considered ONLY a stun, but very usefull at higher lvls vs STRONG mobs, to give you 3 seconds to pot up or get a nice attack in.
its success in PvP is approx 1/3.


Sword Rank(A. Master)

Blade Cry:
This is your 3rd final sword skill, level it along with the rest as high as possible for damage (or lvl 9 for speed)
it hits 360 degrees, and can hit some very nice crits.

Natural Hiding:
Do not waste slot on this skill as cannot stack with aura barrier and the effects is not as good as Instant immunity.


Sword Rank (G. Master)

Blade Scud:
As with any G. Master skill this does a lot of damage, Just like Blade Cry, take it to lvl 9 for speed, or 20(max) for power (bearing in mind the cooldown will be approx 30 secs at max lvl)

Soul Blade:
Take it to MAX.This skill is the final evolved version of Blade Force and Blade Aura, can increase your attack by 74 when maxed ! Cannot stacks with Blade force, Blade aura, intense blade

Instant immunity:
Take it to MAX.Instant immunity would be better than natural hiding, as it gives you total protection of 100% against knockdown,knockback,stun,Unmovable,Down Resistance, while natural hiding only provides you with 25% resistance to Unmovable Resistance when maxed, and both skills have the same duration time.But it cannot stack with mirage step.After level 140 rank up quest mirage step and instant immunity can be stack together so max both mirage step and instant immunity.

Sword Rank (Completer)

Lighting Slash:
Take it to level 9 for speed and it is the best damage skill for bladers. This skill is used in lots of PVPs and PVEs Combos.

Art of Fierceness:
[Not confirm yet do not touch on this skill first as rumours from players :Art of fierceness does not work if you land a critical damage.]
Take it to MAX.Art of Fierceness gives you +400 dmg,when maxed out, applies to normal attacks too, but does not apply to Blade Scud and Lightning Slash.

Intuition:
Take it to MAX.This skill will gives you 90% dodge rate when maxed.It will helps you a lot in your PVEs and PVPs.With our high defense rate together with this skill maxed, we rarely get a hit.But for PVPs if your opponent have a high critical rate we cannot avoid their attacks because critical is a guaranteed hit.
But, this skill will be VERY useful when leveling in the high-level maps or challenging Forgotten Ruin's bosses!!

Sword Rank (Transcencer)

Field of Fear:
Max it. This is the only DeBuff skill for blader, it will -150 DEF and -500 DEF_rate to your opponent when maxed
It has some AoE (i.e. affects other creatures nearby)
This is quite useful in killing bosses.

Intense Blade:
Take it to MAX, If maxed it will gives you 25% skill amp, which means the better your attack, the more power it gets ! Intense blade cannot stack with blade force,blade aura and soul blade.After level 140 rank up quest soul blade and intense blade can be stack together so max both of them
Eg.
If your ATK = 800
then 800 x 25% = 200
that means a +200 ATK boost
*Note: Intense Blade is not a evolution skill so it can stacks with either soul blade,blade aura or blade force after level 140 rank up quest.


For magic skills we only need to get 2 buff skills Regeneration and Resist Intension.

Regeneration:
OPTIONAL, does not stack with iron skin.+6HP per 2s, when maxed.


Magic Rank(Master)

Resist intension:
Max it or skip it. it is one of the "long-lasting" buffs that gives you a 10% Down, Knockback and Stun Resistance UP.But honestly that 10% is not significant at all and it cannot stack with Intuition and concentration.

These skills you should Level to the max (20) for power. or level 9 for speed(fastest cool times) However if you plan on having skills only level 9, i would recommend at LEAST leveling Mirage Grind and Hasing Dance to level 18,19,20 as you will struggle without having some power skills.

(Movement/Evasion)

Vital Interfere:
(Stun)

Blader buffs : Categories

- Strengthen weapon (Soul Blade* , Blade aura *, Blade Force * , Intense Blade )

Upgrade Skills
Upgrade skills are passive skills that add to your abilities without even using them.

Vitality Mastery/Novice+ - A must have for any char - adds a lot of HP

Mana Mastery/Novice+ - Optional-

Pros and Cons

1)From master rank onward our skills takes a lot of mana, and so pots will go fast. If your mana pool is small, then your pots may not keep up with the mana usage.

2)If you wearing Vampiric gear and Mana gears you hardly even need to rely on mana pots and this skill.

3)Mana pots are cheap and auto-refilling.



Reflex/Apprentice+ - Increase defense rate- For PVE (if you like PVE more than PVP)

Sharp Eyes/Apprentice+ - Increase hit rate - Do not waste slot on this, since we already have enough hit rate

Offensive Sense/Regular+ - Increase physical damage - A must

Defensive Sense/Regular+ - Increase defense - For PVP (if you like PVP more than PVE)

Force Control/Regular+ - Increase magical damage - Do not waste on this since we using sword attacks not magic attacks.

Change Force (Sword to Magic)/Expert - Sword skill exp becomes magic skill exp - Optional

Change Force (Magic to Sword/Expert - Magic skill exp becomes sword skill exp - Optional- If you are punching, Magic to sword is good, but it does take away some bonus stats from the magic rank up.


Impact Control/G.Master+ - Greatly increase physical damage - A must

Damage Absorb/G.Master+ - Greatly increase defense - For PVP (if you like PVP more than PVE)It stacks with Defensive sense

Eyes of Mind/G.Master+ - Greatly increase hit rate - Optional (If not enough hit rate)

Sixth Sense/G.Master+ - Greatly increase defense rate - For PVE (if you like PVE more than PVP)

Ruling Force/G.Master+ - Greatly increase magical damage. - Do not waste slot on this skill, since we using sword attacks not magic attacks.It stacks with Force Control


**The G.Master upgrade skills can be stacked with the other upgrade skills, so you can actually have 2 attack upgrade skills, 2 defense upgrade skills, etc.

PvE (knockdown combo): SG-LS-BS-BC-repeat
Use this for bosses immune to stun. LS doesn't knockdown, but because SG is cast so quickly in combo, you will have time to deal some damage while the mobs are still kissing the floor.


~~~>~~~>~~~>~~~>

PvE (stunlock): VI-LS-SG-VI-BS-repeat
You need to time BS to knockdown just as stun from the first VI ends. The second VI in that combo is just a filler for timing. Even if you can't get the knockdown timing right, it is still a good stun combo. This has the best DPS to use in PvE IMO.

Notes:
LS: Lightning Slash, level 9 (best damage skill for bladers)
BS: Blade Scud, level 9 (has knockdown, comparable damage with LS with longer cast)
VI: Vital Interfere, level 12 (has 5.0 sec stun)
SG: Storm Grind, level 20 (has knockdown, fast cast in combo)
BC: Blade Cry, level 20 (has knockdown, and animation block)


A blader stun combos
