Overview

SwordsmanATK.jpeg

Swordmen are strong-willed fighters seeking to lead with their sword and shield. Though stubborn like the waves of the sea, swordmen are able to use their high attack skills to change the tide of the battlefield. Growing up in Prontera and its nearby town Izlude, they have learned that the best defense is the best offense.

Swordmen tend to have high ATK from swords and their skills boost the damage of these weapons. They can wear heavy armor and shield to boost their DEF and their high HP pool from skills and HP bonus significantly help with tanking mobs.

Job Changing

  1. Once you reach Job Level 10, go to Izlude and enter the Swordman Guild on the west side of town at Izlude 52137.
  2. Talk to the Swordman NPC in the center room behind the desk who will change your job to Swordman and rewards you with a Novice Falchion.

Builds

I. MAGNUM BREAK MOBBER

a. Gameplay:
This build requires you to walk around, gather mobs of monsters, and then kill them all using Magnum Break. You may have to use Provoke to attract monsters to you. Use gear that increases your DEF, HP, and SP pool. You will use several HP and SP recovery items for survivability but teaming up with an Acolyte for heals can help avoid using HP recovery items.

b. Stats:
Base level 40 base status distribution suggestion. You may allocate certain status points depending on the monster you are killing, your survivability, skill playing the game, and planned character build later on. If you find yourself missing monsters, add more DEX to give you HIT.

  • AGI: 1
  • VIT: 30
  • INT: 16
  • DEX: 20
  • LUK: 1

II. BASHER

a. Gameplay:
This build focuses on killing monsters one at a time using 1-2 hits of Bash. Ideal monsters to kill for this build are passive monsters such as Willow or Bigfoot.

GENERAL LEVELING STRATEGY

Below are three ideas for efficient leveling strategy:

  1. Follow the Enchanter Mounds Quest guide. This will allow you to enchant a 2302.png Cotton Shirt that you get the moment you created your Novice character with Max HP+100, Max SP+50. You will be talking to Almond J in Izlude Izlude108139. Card this equipment with cards that increase HP and/or SP such as 31016.png Decorated Evil Tree Card or 4003.png Pupa Card.
  2. Using 19163.png Catherina Von Blood [1], you can level as soon as base level 3-56 in Sunken Ship. Talk to Fisk Alberta189151 and pay 250z to go to the Sunken Ship. Use any AoE skill available for your class (e.g., Magnum Break, Fire Ball, Cart Revolution, etc.). You may use 4084.png Marine Sphere Card to use Magnum Break if your class does not have an AoE skill.
  3. Without using 19163.png Catherina Von Blood [1], using the Payon Bounty Board Quests, kill Willows until level 21 and Bigfoot until level 41. Then, using the Eden Group Leveling Quests, kill Orcs, Orc Ladies, and Orc Babies until level 55 and Geffen Bounty Board Quests, kill Orcs and Old Ladies until level 60. You can stack the quests for Orc and Orc Lady kill counts by having both quests active!
