Overview

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!

Builds

Masquerade/Insignia

Stat Build:

  • STR: 1+
  • AGI: 60+
  • VIT: 100+
  • INT: 100-110
  • DEX: 100-120
  • LUK: 1+


Important Skills:


This is a WoE/PvP oriented build designed for disabling enemies while remaining incredibly tanky and hard to kill. The best skill to Intimidate for this build is Flying Kick, for its sheer mobility. It also applies status effects so it is useful to equip status arrows while Flying Kicking around a group of people to spread debuffs. There are several different options to Reproduce - some players opt for Windmill, some prefer Crazy Vines and some choose Jack Frost. Typically, however, all of these skills serve the purpose of giving the Shadow Chaser more tools to further disable and debuff the enemy.

Leveling with this build would best be accomplished by copying the skill Arrow Storm to provide supplemental AoE DPS in parties. A tank/puller role may also be assumed through the use of skills such as Jack Frost/Frost Misty and Back Slide for mob control.

Auto Shadow Spell

Stat Build:

  • STR: 1+
  • AGI: 100-120
  • VIT: 1-90+ (for stun immunity)
  • INT: 95
  • DEX: 70
  • LUK: 30-40


Important Skills:


Auto Shadow Spell is a unique Shadow Chaser build which relies on high ASPD and high MATK to deal AoE damage primarily through autocasts triggered from the Shadow Spell skill. High AGI, high INT and moderate to high DEX is required to be an effective build - DEX is required since the attack must still connect to trigger Shadow Spell, and STR is not needed as this build does not focus on single target damage. However, when fighting high DEF monsters such as Bradium Golems some ATK may be required so as not to miss completely. Additionally, Shadow Spell works only on close range weapons like daggers.

High VIT, while not a necessity during the leveling process helps with survivability in large mobs. For end-game purposes however Stun immunity is very important for higher level content. It may also help when leveling on monsters that regularly stun, and some players may opt for it early.

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.

Typically, it is best to Initimidate a strong AoE spell to use in conjunction with Shadow Spell. Damage-wise, the best option is Meteor Storm, as the meteors stack and can continue to proc while one has already been cast. If mob control is a higher priority Storm Gust is an excellent option to keep mobs frozen. Lord of Vermillion is another alternative, providing decent damage (better on Water property monsters) as well as hitlocking mobs around the player.

There are several options to Reproduce, most popular of which being Duple Light. Duple Light synergises very well with the ASPD, MATK based playstyle of an Auto Shadow Spell Chaser, providing a considerable boost to single target damage. Alternatively, if the extra damage is not required a more defensive option is to Reproduce Renovatio for better sustain. A third, less popular option is to Reproduce Shield Spell for the variety of buffs it can provide.

Double Strafe/Triangle Shot

Stat Build:

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


Important Skills:


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.
