Shadow Chaser.jpg

Rogues and Stalkers can now become Shadow Chasers in Renewal. Their name is often abbreviated and then referred to as just "SC". They use body paint and other means to detect cloaked enemies, become totally invisible, and even debuff opponents. Shadow Chasers can also hide in their enemies shadow to pass off damage being dealt to them. Add to that their ability to copy skills from other 3rd job classes and the Shadow Chaser becomes a versatile and dangerous class to play and face.

Job Change Guide

See Shadow Chaser Job Change Guide for detailed information.

Changing into a Shadow Chaser from a Rogue or Stalker requires the player to complete a treasure hunt across the three nations of the rune Midgard Continent, and through several dungeons. After finding the unique treasure, the player will be transformed into a Shadow Chaser. The journey begins in the Rogue Guild at Pharos Lighthouse!

Stat Build:

  • STR: 1+
  • AGI: 1+
  • VIT: 110
  • INT: 100
  • DEX: 110
  • LUK: 1+

Skill Build:

This is a build most suitable for WoE Sieges and MvP Hunts as part of the support team for Debuffing Enemies.

Leveling would be dependent on Hunter and Ranger Traps. Traps depend on your DEX and INT in order to do more damage.

  • After the balance patch, traps are no longer a reliable leveling method. It is highly recommended to copy Arrow Storm instead.

Suggested Skills to be Copied: Arrow Storm.

Auto Shadow Spell/Invisibility

Stat Build:

  • STR: 90+
  • AGI: 100+
  • VIT: 50+
  • INT: 95
  • DEX: 90
  • LUK: 1

Skill Build:

ASPD is very crucial in triggering Auto Shadow Spell. High AGI, High STR, High INT and Moderate to High DEX is required to be an effective build. Additionally Shadow Spell works only on close range weapons like daggers.

Commonly copied spells are e.g. Storm Gust, Meteor Storm, Duple Light, Raging Trifecta Blow. Skills to be copied would vary depending on the situation and the preference of the player.

Double Strafe/Triangle Shot

Stat Build:

  • STR: 1
  • AGI: 80
  • VIT: 100
  • INT: 80+
  • DEX: 110
  • LUK: 1

Skill Build:

The bow rogue has high DEX and high AGI for quick and devastating damage via bows, Moderate INT ensures a steady SP supply for skill spamming and high VIT for survivability.

Another suggestion is to copy Severe Rainstorm with Reproduce to do effective damage. Ensure to stock up if considering to use this skill as it consumes 220sp (due to nerf on Shadow Chaser class, uses 2x the sp) and 20arrows per cast.

ALL Around PVM

Stats build:

  • STR: 90-120
  • AGI: 60,90-100
  • VIT: 100-120
  • INT:60,90-110
  • DEX: 90-100
  • LUK: 1*optional

Depends on which skills copied, gears, role, you should prioritize which stats goes first.

This build are for those who wanted to bring the life of a WOE-oriented class into PVM environment.SC is like Hermes, which is jack of all trades, but master of none. Please don't expect that you can give out the damage with the same digit from the skills that you copied from the main class, because it is impossible. You may or may not increase the damage via stats, foods, gears, but the main class will always be ahead of you.

Once you understand the gift, yet a curse to SC for the ability to copy skills, then feel free to play SC in PVM arena

Skills worth copying: Bowling Bash Storm Gust Meteor Storm Arrow Storm Jack Frost Ignition Break

The best skills to be use are BB+IB combo which is popular for going solo route. If BIO and partying isn't your thing, this is the path for you. Scaraba dungeon is your best bet for going solo. Armed with RTE and SP/HP leeching gear, you don't have to rely on potions anymore.

If you don't think going solo is fun or because it is bored, you could be A tank(sort of)when leveling in party at BIOs. By learning Storm Gust and Jack Frost, your job is to freeze all those pesky bio-people at the cost of those mobs regconize you as acting aggro. Stack up some reduction gears, high vit and int, you're ready to sacrifice yourself to the demons lurking in bios.
