TaeKwon Master (Alt: Star Gladiator) is a class for characters who have chosen TaeKwon Kid as their first profession and wish to continue in the ways of the TaeKwon. One of the most notable benefits that a TaeKwon Master has over a TaeKwon Kid is the ability to wield books to help deal more damage physically. TaeKwon Master is an unusual class in that the majority of their skills are bound to the celestial bodies of the Sun (Solar), Moon (Lunar) and Stars (Stellar), and are very restricted in their use. These skills have three different restrictions in which they can be used, and are as follows:

  • Certain skills can only be used on a day of their respective celestial body
  • Some skills can only be used on maps that are designated as a place of a celestial body
  • Other skills can only be used against enemies that are aligned as an enemy of a celestial body

The first restriction is unlike the latter two in that a TaeKwon master cannot change what day is representative of a celestial body; these days are already set. The setting for these celestial days is told in the mantra as follows:

The Sun shines brightest on even days. The Moon shines brightest on odd days. And the Stars shine without fail on every 5th day.

The second and third restriction can be set personally for each individual TaeKwon Master via their respective skills: Solar, Lunar and Stellar Perception and Solar, Lunar and Stellar Opposition.

However, there are also skills that are also bound by more than one restriction.

TaeKwon Masters are also known as Star Gladiators in other localizations of Ragnarok Online, which reflects the way how the skills of this class works.

If a TaeKwon Master ever finds the TaeKwon Master skill tree too confusing, a TaeKwon Master can always invest more skill points into the TaeKwon Kid skills, or observe the skills that are not restricted by the celestial bodies.

STR/VIT All-Purpose

  • STR: 110-130
  • AGI: 1
  • VIT: 90-110
  • INT: 1
  • DEX: 1
  • LUK: 1-9

The STR/VIT build is an all-purpose TKM build that benefits from increased survivability and healing item efficiency while still maintaining high damage output through Union and SLS Heat. High-end activities include Thors, Somatology Labs, MVPing, and anywhere else that may involve the TKM tanking or receiving damage. High maximum HP allows the TKM to tank and kill large mobs of monsters with Heat effortlessly, accompanied by more efficient potion consumption.

STR/DEX Specialized

  • STR: 110-130
  • AGI: 1
  • VIT: 20-40
  • INT: 1
  • DEX: 100-120
  • LUK: 1-9

The STR/DEX build is a specialized TKM build that maximizes SLS Heat damage. Because of the nature of the build, their attacks tend to yield the highest damage of all TKM builds. Due to the high amount of DEX, the TKM can naturally hit most monsters and is independent from using Union. Though their damage output is exceptionally high, STR/DEX TKMs are more fragile and usually require a separate tank character to be able to perform effectively.

AGI Kicker

  • STR: 110-130
  • AGI: 70-90 base
  • VIT: 1-50 base
  • INT: 1-12 base
  • DEX: 50-70 total w/ buffs
  • LUK: 1-20 base

The AGI build is a DPS build that uses speed, TK Kid kicks, Shadow, Stellar Protection, and SLS Wrath to dispatch monsters quickly. SLS Heat will help to push mobs back so flee isn't reduced.

1569.png Book of Mother Earth [3]
1570.png Book of the Blazing Sun [3]
1571.png Book of Gust of Wind [3]
ATK+90. Slotted versions are better than Book [3], if TaeKwon Master overrides weapon's element with Mild Wind - not only do they have 5 more atk, but they also are level 3, so more damage is added by upgrading them. Unslotted versions are useless.

Level Up Angel

Taekwon Kids, Taekwon Masters and Soul Linkers share a unique level up angel that provides the following bonuses when a new base level is reached:

Resetting your places of the Sun/Moon/Stars

TaeKwon Masters can reset maps designated as Places of the Sun/Moon/Stars. The TaeKwon Master must be sitting beside another TaeKwon class (Soul Linker, TaeKwon Kid or another TaeKwon Master) and be regenerating HP (that is, your HP must not be full). It is speculated that being in Happy Mode is also required. Spamming the /doridori emote repeatedly is not necessary, but it is needed to enter Happy Mode. You can tell that you are in Happy Mode because you regenerate an additional +3 SP over the regular Happy Break effects. The chance to reset the maps occurs every 10 seconds (on each Peaceful Break HP tick). In order to ensure that you are continually regenerating HP, you can switch an HP-increasing item on and off, or use something which drains HP, like a rideword hat, combined with low HP regeneration. The chance of the reset occurring is very low, sometimes taking many hours or days to be successful.

Solar, Lunar, and Stellar Miracle

As the Taekwon Master wanders the land and gazes at the sky, a blessing unlike any other may be endowed upon him. Solar, Lunar, and Stellar Miracle will grant the Taekwon Master the ability to use all Solar, Lunar, and Stellar-aligned skills on any map on any day of the week. The moon will eclipse the sun and the stars will shine brightly, making the world around the Taekwon Master go dark (the effect is similar to the darkness caused by a Soul Link). This means offensive and supporting skills are stacked as well. The effect lasts for one hour and disappears if the player logs off or switches maps.

Every instance of damage inflicted by TaeKwon Master has a very slim chance to trigger Solar, Lunar, and Stellar Miracle.

  • Miracle lasts one hour.
  • Miracle will disappear if player travels to a map on a different server, Magnificat behaves the same way and can be used to check if maps are on the same server.
  • During Miracle, all enemies become target of Stellar Wrath and Stellar Blessings.
  • During Miracle, all Heat and Protection skills will be enabled.
  • Miracle is not lost upon death but teleporting back to Save Point may remove it due to different map server.
