Overview

CHAMP.PNG

Though the force of his punches are feared far and wide, the Monk realizes that he has neglected something very important—his spirit remains unsatisfied. Thus his body and spirit are not yet in harmony. Through rigorous training and intense dedication, the Monk will finally tap into the strength of his entire being and become a Champion!

A Champion is the Transcendent variant of Monk. Known for the one-hit skill, Guillotine Fist. Champions are even deadlier in close range combat due to their boosted SP count and STR. Champions get mostly new combo-skills as their transcendental skills. Combo skills are mostly used for PvM but still can wreck havoc in PvP if executed properly.

The most loved boost is probably the new skill Zen and the increase in HP and SP since Guillotine Fist relies on the STR and SP count of the caster. With 69 skill points to allocate, Champions can now have the most commonly used (PvP wise) skills maxed. Although the new skills are disappointing for those who are PvP oriented, the 69 skill points to allocate makes up for it and makes them able to get all offensive spirit skills maxed and get Snap at the same time.

Job Change Guide

Champion classchange 0.gif
To become a Champion, you must find a book called 'the Book of Ymir' in 'Sage Castle', Juno. The book will lead you to Valhalla so you can change your job through the Champion Job NPC. Also you must reach at least Job Level 40 as a Transcendent 1st class character. Reaching Job Level 50 first is strongly recommended, as the player will never be able to recover the extra job levels / skill points after the job change.

Builds

See Sura Builds for build strategies to work towards. See Monk Builds for leveling strategies for just the Champion leveling stages. Leveling a Champion is similar to a regular pre-trans Monk, but with a few new skill additions.

New Skills Overview:

Zen is extremely helpful as it allows the Champion or Sura to summon the maximum number of spirit spheres. This even allows a Sura with Rising Dragon level 10 to summon 15 spheres at once.

New Combos:

  • Note* You can NOT perform Glacier Fist after Chain Crush Combo

Equipment

Eden Group Equipments Quests

Main article: Eden Group Equipments Quests

Most transcendent characters will have already completed some Eden Equipment quests already and can reuse the equipment. If the character has not done the quest yet, they can do it as a transcendent character as well. The Mace is a good weapon and generally a good choice for a Monk and their future classes' use.

General Equipment Recommendations

Main article: Equipment

The Equipment article lists some general all purpose equipment that is useful through the PVM phase and also for endgame use as well.

Third Class Compatible Equipment

Main article: Sura Equipment

It is recommended to look at the Equipment recommendations for the Third Class job to see what equipment to strive for, rather than to spend a lot of money on a piece of equipment that will not be used in the future as a third class. However, some equipment may have a high level requirement, or are transcendent only.

Weapons

After considering what requirement skills have (some skills can only be used with certain weapon types), the Weapon Search tool within the iRO Wiki DB site is very helpful. Generally, for physical classes (both melee and ranged), something with high ATK is best. For magic classes, something with high MATK is best.

Transcendent Only

For the most part, Champions utilize the same gear as their non-trans counterpart Monk. A few notable (and expensive) exceptions to this are:

  • Variant Shoes
  • Diabolus Robe & Diabolus Ring
  • Nidhoggur's Shadow Garb
