An huge, insurmountable living meat shield.


۱ GAMEPLAY DESCRIPTION

The gameplay is very easy to understand: don’t die! You need to learn how to cycle your saves (Skills / Genie / Apo), keep calm and use the right solution at the right time.
For more detailed informations check the section “Gameplay – How to Tank” and “Gameplay – How to Support”.

PRO CONS
V High survivability X Low damage
V Best support X Expensive repairs and charms
   
BEST SCENARIO BAD SCENARIO
V Territory War X PK
V Dragon Conquest X 1v1
V Thursday Night Fight X Arigora Colosseum

۱ CULTIVATION

Sage. Why? Sage is a Chi maker with Bestial Rage, Master Li’s Technique and swapping Human/Tiger form. Chi is good for Invoke or for Celestial Eruption that purify negative status, heal and reduce damage taken. Tiger/Panda form add more Health Point and with Shapeshift Intensity grants more Physical Defense.

۱ POINTS

VITALITY:          Max
MAGIC:             5
STRENGTH:       300
DEXTERITY:      
60

Use 300 points in Strength and 60 in Dexterity to be able to equip your weapon. Vitality is the most important value for a Tank because add Health Point and both Physical and Magic Resistance.

۱ EQUIPMENTS

Weapon
A pure Tank doesn’t need a powerfull weapon, but better to look for Defense Level or any kind of attribute that can help to reduce the damage taken. Some of most common weapons are:

- Dominator’s Maul (Rank 8 2nd cast)
: easy to make and give a good amount of defense level as main attribute(around 20-25 defense level), plus some other usefull attributes like magic resistance or reduce damage taken(depend on luck). Can be upgraded to 3rd cast for additional defense level
- Dragonbreath Weapon (Grade 17): 80 defense level plus a nice attribute at 5th cast is the top, but it is very expensive at the moment. From 3rd cast it is possible to access to some interesting tools like Purify Spell, Windtrail Shadow (immune to damage) and Dimlight Figure (untargetable).

Nobody forbids to have more weapons and swap on a different tools depend of the moment. Except for Purify Spell, other attributes of Dragonbreath Weapon has a cooldown of 30 seconds, so when an effect trigger, it is possible to change weapon and use other effect while the 1st is recharging.

Gears
Awakened Lionheart (Nirvana Grade 16) is good enough to have fun with a Pure Tank build. The high amount of Health Points and Defense cover the “handicap” to not have Hegemony (Rank 9). If you have Rank 9 is better, and in that case it is possible to use Heaven Ravager Robe and Helm, with nice defensive attributes, without lose the set bonus.
In order to get the best defense, I suggest to upgrade Rank 9 ring and belt to 4th cast, to gain additional 10 defense level from set bonus and be able to refine the belt. (Not possible with Rank 9 3rd cast belt)
Use rings that increases both magic/physical defense when refined or if not possible atleast one Magic ring. Magic necklace also.

Refine, Engrave and Gems
Starting to the point that Vitality is our main attribute, there are two different “customizations”: who prefer HP and who prefer defense level; both are a good way to go.

- Full Vitality: refine armor to +12 at first, imbue it with gems that add vitality (Primeval Stone for example) and look for vitality attribute with engrave.
- Full Defense: refine ornaments to +12 at first, use gems that add defense level on armor (Jade of Steady Defense for example) and look for magic resistance attribute when possible with engrave.
Do not mix vitality and defense level build!

On necklace and belt it is possible to choose between:
- Bloody Stone (Vitality)
- Sovereign Stone (Defense Level)
- Brilliance Stone (Spirit)

Starchart
Fatestar: Magic Resistance, Physical Resistance, Spirit
Birthstar: HP, Elemental Resistance (Metal, Wood, etc)

۱ GENIE

I suggest to use a full Vitality/Magic genie to have the chance to use more skills at time and charge energy faster. Check section "Genie - Vitality Genie".

۱ GLYPH SETUP

Check section "Skills - Glyph Setup".

 

 

          A blood-thirsty frenzy beast that will destroy every enemy on his path.

۱ GAMEPLAY DESCRIPTION

Playing a pure attack barb is much more hard than people think. You have enough damage to be able to kill in different way (Ancestral Rage / Armageddon / Violent Troumph or just with stun lock and random zerk crit if lucky enough) but also need to manage genie and defensive skills perfectly or you will die very easy.
Mass-PvP is the best field for this kind of build because it is possible to hide and kill a big group of player with AoE and squad support.
For more detailed informations check the section “Gameplay – How to do Damage”.

PRO CONS
V High damage X Low survivability
V Chance to 1 shot every class  
   
BEST SCENARIO BAD SCENARIO
V Nation War X PK
V Dragon Conquest X Arigora Colosseum
V PvE  

۱ CULTIVATION

Demon. Why? Because Demon allow to increase Accuracy and Critical Hit with passive skills and Bestial Onslaught. A pure damage need different way to kill and an average high damage to be feared.

۱ POINTS

VITALITY:          5
MAGIC:             5
STRENGTH:       Max
DEXTERITY:      
60


Use 60 points in Dexterity to be able to use your weapon. Strength is the most important attribute to increase your physical attack.

۱ EQUIPMENTS

Weapon
A powerfull weapon is all is needed to deal damage. Some of most common weapons are:

- Chieftain’s Shredder (Rank 9 4th cast): better than 3rd cast because of more attack level, strength and base physical attack.
- Dragonbreath Weapon (Grade 17): 80 attack level and major physical attack with +12, with the chance to add some usefull stats to evade lock (Purify Spell, Dragonstone Armor or Dimlight Figure) within God of Frenzy.

Gears
Hegemony (Rank 9) is needed for strength and attack level bonus.
Prefer rings with the best physical attack.
Build with full strength grants enough physical defense, so better wear a magic necklace.

Refine, Engrave and Gems
Refine weapon to +12. Rest of equipment is optional because increase only your survivability (can be done in a second time). Use physical attack gems (Drakeflame Stone for example) in the weapon and attack level in all other gears (Deity Stone for example, Genie Stone for ornaments).
Prefer engrave that increase physical attack or add strength points.

Starchart
Fatestar: Physical Attack, Physical Penetration
Birthstar: Spirit

۱ GENIE

I suggest to use a Strength genie to use some of the best skills to lock (Occult Ice), debuff (Tangling Mire) and survive (Solid Shield). Check section "Genie - Strength Genie".

۱ GLYPH SETUP

Check section "Skills - Glyph Setup".

 

 

          A solid warrior capable of fierce lethal blows.

۱ GAMEPLAY DESCRIPTION

Old problem of Hybrid build is that you don’t have enough damage to kill and not enough defense to tank on large scale. Wonderland update made this build strong again by releasing glyph for Violent Triumph. Golden glyph grants a 100% critical hit + add % of damage to the next attack (ancestral rage or armageddon for damage and never misses) and create a lethal combo. Gameplay can result boring (try combo, kite/tank until cooldown is ready, retry combo, repeat) but it is very solid.

PRO CONS
V Good survivability X Repetitive to play, can result boring
V Good damage with combo  
   
BEST SCENARIO BAD SCENARIO
V 1v1 X None*
V PK  
V Arigora Colosseum  

*This build can suite good in any scenario but not the best.

۱ CULTIVATION

Sage. Why? I start to say that this build play around Violent Triumph combo (I will explain better in gameplay paragraph). Sage grats more physical attack and a better survivability.

۱ POINTS

Refine, Engrave and Gems
This is the most expensive part of the build. Need damage and enough defense, so it is important to max refine all the gears. Use physical attack gems (Drakeflame Stone for example) in the weapon and defense level in all other gears (Jade of Steady Defense for example, Sovereign Stone for ornaments). Depend on your survivability it is possible to use some attack level gems (Deity Stone/Genie Stone for example) but never more than defense level gems (max 4 pieces with attack level, including necklace and belt). For this build Spirit gems (Brilliance Stone for example) still an option for necklace and belt.
Prefer engrave that increase physical attack or add strength points. If not possible, increase magic resistance.
