Overview

Geneticists are the third class versions of Alchemists and Biochemists. When reaching Base Level 99, they're eligible to become a Geneticist. Alchemists who become a Geneticist can no longer transcend and thus cannot gain any transcendent skills (including Acid Bomb) and it is always recommended to transcend and turn into a Biochemist before turning third class, as with any other class in the game.

Geneticists are a rather complex class that require a lot of hard work and dedication to master, but pays off greatly in the end with the ability to solo MVPs with ease and excel in performance at PvP. Geneticists are essentially the best MVP class in the game in terms of versatility and damage per second, but they're also the most expensive class to maintain. Everything about the Geneticist has improved from its former Biochemist self, including good Area skills and the ability to hit Ghost property monsters with Cart Cannon, much better plant summons, the ability to make even more powerful potions and bombs, and a new evolution of Homunculus that will grant powerful support abilities to its owner.

Mastersmiths already brought cart skills beyond the level of a Merchant class with Cart Boost and High Speed Cart Ram, but Geneticists go even further. Improving the Mastersmith's Cart Boost by giving it attack boost, even better Movement Speed boost and adding new skills that allow Geneticists to battle using their cart as a weapon. the Geneticist has become a powerful class capable of destroying any object in its way.

Job Change Guide

See Geneticist Job Change Guide for detailed information.

Changing into a Geneticist from an Alchemist or Biochemist requires the player to complete 2 tasks:

  • Gaining knowledge about plants
  • Learning more about carts

After completing these tests, the player will be transformed into a Geneticist. The test mostly takes place inside of the Geneticist's Lab in Lighthalzen.

Builds

Cart Cannon Leveling Build

  • STR: 90~100
  • AGI: 1
  • VIT: 96 (100 with job bonus)
  • INT: 100~120
  • DEX: 90~120 (for the cast time of Cart Cannon. Cast Time reduction gear can allow more points focused into INT/LUK)
  • LUK: 30+ (after a certain point, LUK becomes cheaper over STR/INT)

Primary Skills:

Cart Remodeling.png Cart Remodeling
Cart Cannon.png Cart Cannon
Cart Boost (Geneticist).png Cart Boost (Geneticist)

Optional Skills:

Blood Sucker.png Blood Sucker
Thorn Wall.png Thorn Wall
Crazy Vines.png Crazy Vines
Hell Plant.png Hell Plant

With proper gears to boost damage, full PvM Cart Cannon build stats-wise is not necessary and can aim for a balanced, MVPing build, as the stats on the builds are quite similar. This way a Stat & Skill reset doesn't become necessary. Plants can be used to create clusters and lure mobs into it. Players can also use Blood Sucker to heal and deal additional damage.

MVP Killer

  • STR: 90~105
  • AGI: 1

Equipment

Cart Cannon Leveling Build

Headgear

Airship Captains Hat = increases ranged damage by 7%

Recommended cards:

Kathryne Keyron for faster Cart Cannon cast time.

Armor

  • 2365.png Orleans's Gown [1]: The Gown protects the casting of being interrupted for less Cast Time increase than a Phen Card provides; this also frees up an accessory slot. However, some players like to use a Phen Carded accessory + another armor, like a Brynhild or an elemental armor with Marc Card. Orleans's or Phen is also not required for Cart Cannon if the player has 100% variable cast time reduction or more. Otherwise, but the Gown is the superior choice for Cast Time compared to using a Phen Card.

Recommended cards:

Porcellio.

Weapon

  • 13413.png Twin Edge of Naght Sieger [3] or 13412.png Twin Edge of Naght Sieger [3]: Both swords are viable to use, but the Red version is much more expensive due to its extra Weapon ATK. For a leveling build, the Blue version is enough, but for MVPing the Red version is better for the extra damage it has for Acid Bomb.
  • 16000.png Erde [2] or 16001.png Red Square Bag [2]: With Expert Archer enchants from Malangdo, these Maces provide good damage versus Large monsters due to their damage modifier by size (100% vs. 75% from Swords against Large monsters). Also, Maces cannot be broken (except in upgrade attempts), therefore Dieter's Pyroclastic won't cause damage to these weapons.
  • 16003.png Carga Mace [2]: Decent damage without enchants.
  • 1377.png Hurricane Fury [1]: Powerful, but Axes haven't favorable damage modifiers by size. It's also two handed, rendering the user incapable to use Shields. However, it does provide a small reduction againt Medium monsters. Can be enchanted with Expert Archer enchants for more damage.

Homunculus

Main article: Homunculus S

Here is a quick breakdown of the homunculus and their uses:

  • Bayeri (Scope: PvM) - A tanky unicorn with attitude. Bayeri uses safety walls on his owner and provides Holy property area damage. However, its biggest weakness is that its area attack is interruptable, which makes it an unpopular choice of Homunculus S amongst most Geneticists.
  • Dieter (Scope: PvM, PvP, WoE and MVP) - The most popular of the Homunculi S. Dieter provides his owner with a significant damage boost (which has the downside of possibly breaking weapons) as well as area damage against mobs. Dieter is very tanky, which combined with his awesome area ability, makes him possibly the best Homunculus S to AFK with.
  • Eira (Scope: PvM, PvP and MVP) - Being one of the unfavorite Homunculi S that doesn't get enough attention, Eira should by no means be ignored. She has a special skill that provides her owner with ludicrous amounts of flee rate temporarily (sets Flee Rate to 500 when mastered), which can make a big difference in a dire situation. And speaking of defeat, Eira can be a great backup. With her resurrection spell, she'll bring her owner back from the dead so that embarrassing trip back to town can be avoided.
  • Eleanor (Scope: PvM and PvP) - Probably one of the least loved Homunculi S, brings the damage but not much else. This fistcuff lover monk-like cat-lady will brutally beat the heck out of any target in sight, chaining together combo attacks that do decent damage. She has no area attacks, which makes her fairly useless in PvM except for picking off single targets. Mostly just played for aesthetics though.
  • Sera (Scope: PvM, PvP, WoE and MVP) - The ultimate all purpose Homunculus S. This crazy bee-lady provides her owner with a massive damage reduction boost that buys her owner a window of opportunity to defeat an MvP (or another player) without being barraged with heavy damage. Very useful for solo PvM as well due to her area attack and paralyzing sting.
