Link PvE Full PvE (After Revamp)
Double Slash is Better than Arma Blade for Bossing.
You can Change Double Slash to Arma Blade if you want to Mobbing.
KaitoTakama
Link PvE
U need Flame Geysir because LK isn't doing much dmg with his other skills and it's good against some bosses which aren't big.
Triple Geysir is good for LK and for RS for both it is a very good skill. U can do more dmg on bosses which are big like Deus Ex or the boss from 3-X.
Double Slash is only if u want to rush the boss or it is a small one. But all in all LK isnt that good anymore in dungeon he is elcrap but some of the LK player still play him in dungeon and he can rush it but only with the right equip
KaitoTakama
Link PvP Here is also a PvP Skill build for LK. Important for that build is the Fatal Fury Note. without it won't work. Second u have to do a lot of x drops. (xxxx sonic blade x drop/xxxx ground impact x drop/xxy fatal fury x drop etc.). Third if u don't like Sonic Blade use Thunder clap but u have to do xxxx power booster overcross x drop Thunder clap. LK is really hard to play in PvP but it make fun. I play ALL Els characters and dont use Stoic it is more difficult but it works.

Link Hybrid Updated for Smart Balance and lv 70
If you want a flexible skill tree for Lord Knight that can tank pretty well and be made for pve and pvp here it is
Albertrojas
Link Hybrid More focused on PvP but can fare well in PvE as well. Mainly revolves on the usage of Vitality Aura while using Destruction Aura as a way to close the gap with with a hint of magic. And if the enemy still survives, face your wrath by amplifying the range of your skills and increase your damage(if noted) by using Armageddon Blade.
  • Why Unlimited Blade instead of Triple Geyser? I know Triple Geyser gives more damage than Unlimited Blade, but if used in conjunction with Arma Blade, the skill would be deadly.
    • Of course I'm aware that the skill can be Mana Broken, that's why it's mostly used in PvE. Unless you're sure that the enemy can't mana break, use a noted Fatal Fury, as it deals heavy damage and can't be mana broken on the 3rd strike. That and some other tactic that you can use with a noted Fatal Fury.
  • A B-slot is recommended but you can do this without it. If you plan on not getting a B-slot, then you'll have to switch skills often when transitioning between PvP and PvE.
    • you need to drop either Unlimited Blade for PvP in favor for a noted Fatal Fury, and vise-versa for PvE, as both skills will work well with Arma Blade. Drop Sword Wave in favor of Kick in PvP, and vise-versa for PvE. A noted Stoic or Armor Break is a must in both PvP and PvE.
  • With a B-slot you'll have 7 skills you need to spend your SP on (and still leaving quite a lot of SP), leaving you with a single slot for any skill of your choice. Any skill will for the 8th slot will do. But if you're having trouble choosing, just put any of the default-unlocked skills in the meantime.(Flame Geyser, Roll, Air Slash, Rolling Smash)You can even allocate points on them without suffering any backlash as each skill works well with the build. Of course that means that the HA can also be chosen without taking out any important skill(Heck, you could freely switch with any of the 5 skills before you start a match to add more unpredictability if you encounter the same opponent twice). This can also put you in an advantage against trap users in PvP if used correctly.
  • For Passives, I recommend getting a high level of Counter Chance if you don't socket Accuracy. I also recommend Counter Patience, but you can get Intense Strike if you want to, but beware of the consequences. Warrior's Physique and Pain Suppression are a must.
    • Once the Season 3 Revamp Arrives, when you have to pick between Warrior's Physique and Pain Suppression, choose Pain Suppression and getting Wind Slicer is a must.
Midgetninja [1] Hybrid NOTE: my builds tend to max skills rather than spread SP over a wide variety. This gives you less versatility when choosing, but it makes the skills you do take much more powerful. I also recommend B slots for all of my builds.

-Roll for heavy hitstun and pass. The Hp usage won't even matter with such a high damage output
-Counter has multiple uses in pvp (re-catching after KD) and pve (blocking powerful attacks and continuing your combo) when used correctly
-Skipped Kick because you have KD resets, so use them. Also skipped Spiral Blast because the blast's damage is now PHYSICAL.
-I highly recommend the note for Armor Break, so you don't have to use it as many times to get the effect, but you don't need it
-Maxxed Arma and Stoic for their duration, and Arma is a wonderful mob cleaner, why not have it out for as long as possible?
-Maxxed Rolling Slash for gap closing

Sasuke556 Link Hybrid LK build for PvE and PvP - My Taste.

So, to the build - it's based on picking skills useful in both - PvE and PvP + some good only for 1 type.
- Flame Geyser and Triple Flame Geyser (mainly triple) on bosses especially with high physic defense (Like Nasod Inspector).
- Roll and Counter for PvP, it doesn't have much damage and it's mostly used only for continuing combo, so no point in wasting points there.
- Counter Chance for no knock down counters and no need for geting accuary bonuses.
- Kick for PvP as some instant KD reduction, Vitality for more MP gain, Arma Blade for PvE for enlarging combos and no real need to explain Armor Break + Stoic for both, use it as you wish.
- Rolling smash is good for both, especially in combination with Arma Blade.
- Impact Smash good for catching in PvP and good damage with Stoic for PvE, some useful passive, useless are skipped and of course HA.
5/30/15 : Fixed so it merges with other LK builds

Elsword 2-2.PNG RYMERO2001 Link Hybrid This is a Hybrid build to make a pretty decent Rune Slayer but its up to you
KaitoTakama Link PvE After all I changed my PvE skill tree because I noticed that wasn't that good. So what u need is the triple geysir and the geysir note (u will make more dmg). Important too is the rising slash note for more hits and more dmg. try to use sword fire if u fulled your blue aura or when u have to charged your red aura but dont use it too much because u have to spam a lot in PvE so play in the blue aura.
KaitoTakama Link PvP Well, I also changed my PvP skilltree. U need Fatal Fury note to use it because if u dont hit your enemy with fatal u can move after the skill and u gain 75mp. so u have one more combo or a lot more. just like xxy fatal fury <^>vx yy (maybe xyy fatal fury and then x drop i havent tried it yet.). Phoenix Talon is only for 2on2 or 3on3 it isnt that good in 1on1 anymore. the passive rune that makes your rune bigger is that u can catch easier. if you have more questions asked me in the DE server KaitoVII or KaitoTakama or mail me on xkaitoshion@gmail.com. Have fun with that build :D (note: dont do a hybrid skill tree because it is week in pve and pvp)
SimpleSuki Link You aren't allowed to use Specials in PvP.
Midgetninja [2] Hybrid See my LK build Note

-Roll for heavy hitstun and pass, again. Plus it's one of the main ways to deal physical damage in this build.
-Counter for the same reasons, again.
-Wind Blade's damage is very high, better than Splash Explosion's, at the cost of a KD. Skill note highly recommended, but not needed.
-Skipped Kick because of the same Reason as LK.
-Explosive Fist for charging Vitality Mode
-Rising Slash with the note is highly recommended, as it proves to be an invaluable mob cleaner
-Luna Blade because it's like a larger, more powerful version of noted Wind Blade, and you can combo off of it as well

Elsword 3-2.PNG Aubud
Link PvE

-Why Block? It is a easier to execute, more effective defensive skill than Counterattack when defending against multiple hits
-Take Counterattack + Compact Counter if you plan on PvPing
-Recommended skills to take for dungeons: Rage Cutter, Phantom Sword (noted unless Ice Attribute), Flame Geyser (noted), Sword Fall(noted)
-Interchangable: Block/Counter or Stoic depending on boss pattern
-Brutal Slayer + Mind of The Fighter is good for PvP
-You may wanna trade Rage Cutter for Maelstrom Rage if you think you can mob clear better/as good without Rage Cutter
-My current build is meant for maximum DPS on IS when playing PvE, hence the Harsh Slayer and Sharp Blade (Bleed)

Midgetninja [3] Hybrid See my LK build Note

-Roll for yet again, the same reasons
-Flame Geyser for Magical damage, also functions as a Launch Reset
-Sword Fall note is recommended, but not needed.
-Counter for once again the same reasons, is also why I did not go with Compact Counter.
-Harsh Slayer is useful in pvp for MB-happy people, and with Mind of The Fighter, helps you dish out more damage.
-Phantom Sword for the buff, you have Mob Cleaners later and you need a skill that can help you deal massive amounts of damage.
-Mirage sting for a pass in pvp/pve
-Sword Blasting over Crescent Cut may seem a bit controversial, but CC is easy to MB out of, while Blasting gets you more horizontal range, and roughly the same damage.
-Fatal Slap and Harsh Chaser for Runners
-I chose Maelstrom Rage because it gathers mobs, but Rage Cutter is an effective mob cleaner as well. Pick as you wish here.

dLordzAndrex Link Hybrid PvP 80% and PvE 20% or so I thought

-I keep Roll at level 1 cause for some reason (you can level it for your use thought)
-Counterattack ftw, noted for better defense and you can use Compact Counter for combo (deals half damage of the skill = a bit more damage than normal attack) plus, Compact won't launch your enemy while dealing 0 KD
-Mirage Sting for better passing skill than Roll (in my opinion)
-Note Harsh Chaser for more range and another Leg Wound debuffer (in INA they gives the Leg Wound debuff, so in NA i think you don't have to note it)
-Fatal Slap is recommended but only if you have high action speed or currently in Vitality Mode (because it is actually pretty slow, sometimes in PvP your enemy can jump over you when you try to Fatal Slap them mid-combo) you can note your Sword Shield though to have another Leg Wound debuffer
-Have Sword Fall noted (or not if you're to lazy to get one) and Rage Cutter for your mob sweeping skills
-I left about 46 SP you can choose freely around Crescent Cut or Sword Blasting and Sharp Sword or Mind of the Fighter for your own touch (or you can also use it to grow the other skills).

Alhell
Link
PvE

-I skip Kick cuz obviously who used Kick in pve
-You can replace Lighting Step with Compact Counter(With noted) for that OP Def buff
-Maelstorm over Rage Cutter cuz it can cancel Boss move
-Cruel Slayer over Harsh cause it give more Burst dmg
-Sharp Blade cause,heck who need mp reduce for Active skill in a dungeon
-Stoic can unexpectingly save you in some situation(3-x boss pushing fetish~)
-The rest of the SP is for you to use on anything you prefer(recommend putting some in the Training Passive)

Link
PvP

-You can used Roll for it utility but keep it at level 1(you can lvled it if you wanted to)
-Recommend you note Sword Slam, I used this to catch sometime
-I believe we all agree Harsh Chaser work better in PvP eh?(With noted is even more useful)
-Kick n Stoic for obvious reason
-Sword Blasting for catching purpose
-That Compact Counter dmg is mad so i choose it(If timed correctly with Harsh Slayer you can immediately re-use it)
-Maelstorm is optinal
-The spare SP can be use freely

Aisha

Class Build Creator Link Style Creator's Comments
Aisha 1-2.PNG TomoSasazaki [4] PVP This build is a basic build with simple PVE and PVP Capabilities for players who can't utilize her with the Meditation nerf.
Kazuro Link PvE

- Seal of Knowledge is used as a damage booster, boosting nearly 25% at level 20, and we got Encouraging Aura to help with that
- Although Gust Screw does high damage, it will get outshone by skills later so i skipped it
- Circle Flame to clean weak mobs, also quite good for gathering them

Link PvP

- Fireball Study over Freezing Point Research as it increases your fireballs' range, making catching eassier
- Lightning Shower stuns, but since stun duration got nerfed recently, feel free to choose Meteor Shower instead
- Element Study over Elements' Friendly as it is always activated, reducing cooldown of your skills, including Meditation
- I didn't get any MP3 skill, because I'd rather use Lightning Shower twice, but if I had to, I'd pick Blaze Step

Aisha 2-2.PNG RYMERO2001 Link PvP This is a build mainly for pvp and why shadow of disaster you ask? cause I find it better to have more crit damage but you can change it if you want.
Kazuro Link Pve

- If you have Dark Attribute weapon, Phantom Breathing - Dark Fall is better, but if you don't, I recommend Phantom Breathing - Dark Hole
- I picked Gravity Ball Research because it can be your damage dealer when you ran out of MP with ^X, also, I'm not lucky with skills with chances... But if you can manage your MP well, go with Shadow's Contract
- Seal of Knowledge for the same reason as I explained in EM build, but if you are the offensive type, leave it out and go with either Dark Cloud or Death Field

Link PvP
DWNewIcon4SizeFix.png Aubud Link PvE Very standard DW build

Remaining points can be spent on Buffs or Intermediate Strength Training

Flatio Link PvE You can take Binding Circle instead of Energy Spurt.
Kazuro Link PvE

- Spirit Acceleration over Manaflow Overdrive, also the latter is more recommended, for the buff duration increase
- As Dimension Witch can get MP fastest out of all Aisha, I picked Binding Circle for bossing maps, especially Henrir, switch it with Circle Flame when you 're not bossing
- Screw Driver - Driller over Screw Driver - Tornado because it does higher damage, in a smaller range though

Link PvP

- Energy Spurt is really strong, especially when you don't have good equipments. Be careful using it though, it has quite narrow range
- I didn't get Circle Flame because you have many other catching tools, mainly Binding Circle, Energy Drain, or Impact Hammer, Distortion can be used as Counter-Counter-Chance
- Get a buff if you want, but remember you only have 8 slots

Rena

Class Build Creator Link Style Creator's Comments
Rena 1-2 Redo.PNG TomoSasazaki [5]

-Aerostrafe is no longer useful. This build is strictly PVP with a hint of PVE
-The skills chosen are for variations in combos and better catching when launching an enemy in the air
-Hence choosing arc shot

Kazuro Link PvE

- Extra SP available
- I got Siege but don't waste your skill slot for it
- Wind Ward is helpful, especially in Henrir, but if you don't use it, get a buff or something

Link PvP

- Your main catching tools are Assault Kick, Back Tumbling Shot and Arc Shot, use Reflect Kick if you and time enemy's attacks

Rena 2-2.PNG Blazegamma Link Hybrid

-assault impact and slide double kick are interchangeable based on preference
-middle and low kick also interchangeable
-one point into perfect storm for pesky wyverns and other flyers.
-seal of patience can be skipped and points spent in other desired areas.

IteAngel Link PvP

-extra points available
-you should spend on spinning kick

-assault impact can be changed out with spinning kick

-if you are switching make sure you have the spinning kick skill note

Kazuro Link PvE

- Extra points can be taken out of Strength Trainings
- I skipped Lv30 block because you could, and should, spend your MP on heavy damage-dealing skills, unless you are strong enough
- Dive Kick Bombing over Violent Attack because it is more .... stylish ?
- Although WS is a physical class, Phoenix Strike can still do wonder, WS doesn't have many map-clearing skills

Link PvP WS lack MP quite often, but her actives are strong enough, there's no need for high MP-cost skills
[6] Hybrid

-Rising Falcon is left at level 1 as an approacher skill
-Back Tumbling Shot is also left at level 1 as the damage incease is not significant
-Seal of Patience is maxed to increase WS' surviving ability
-Phoenix Strike will be your main PvE skill
-Spinning Kick and Cresent Kick can be maxed based on your preference, max either you choose and afford its skill note
-Swift Kick for obvious reasons
-Middle Kick is picked because of its debuff, which allow you to escape from your opponent's combo, ensuring your survivability. However, you can choose to maxed Low Kick instead
-Nimble for free attack speed and waking-up speed. Agility can be useless in several situations
-Dive Kick Bombing and Violent Attack are skipped, as you have many other actives / special actives to spend MP on
-Reflect Kick is maxed for those annoying arrow/ fireball/ runes spammer. Can be skipped
-Nature Force is a must
-Assault Impact and Slide Double Kick; Back Kick and High Kick; Nymph and Sylph. Choose either, but try to max what you chose I chose Assault Impact to approach, Back Kick for general gaming; Sylph for fast map clearing
-Sharp Fall is an useful PvE skill, along with stunning
-Friendship with Nature to make you even tankier

NWNewIcon3Fix.png TomoSasazaki [7]

-Siege is useless unless you're a Grand Archer. -I know what you're thinking new is better so why not the new skills the truth is the old skills in this case help more in pvp.

Kazuro Link PvE
Link PvP

Raven

Class Build Creator Link Style Creator's Comments
Raven 1-2.PNG RYMERO2001 Link PvP
defaultNNC Link Hybrid Pick Evacuation! or Shadow Thrust by preference. If you pick the former, take points out of Intermediate Strength Training to max Shadow Pierce.
SwordWyvern Link Hybrid This is a build with a balance of PVE and PVP. Why Flying Impact? Its a badass move that can destroy people in PVP and PVE. You can take skill points from a Lvl 10 Counter Chance and a Lvl 1 Burning Rush and invest it. If you choose not to do Flying Impact spend the rest of your SP as you desire.
Kazuro Link PvE

- I got Megadrill Break, which does insane damage with 50mp, also got One Flash and Shadow Thrust for flashy damage, get Evacuation! if you find 2 actives is enough
When Giga Drive - Limiter is activated, I often use One Flash only
- Bloody Accel can help you in many case, especially in Henrir. However Hypersonic Stab is pretty much like DW's Supernova, which means you can deal insane damage if there are many mobs around (Can even OHKO bosses if there are enough mobs around
- I'm not sure about Trained Body and Reversal Fighter, since i got Bloody Accel, I don't think my HP can reach below 50% so i got the latter

Link PvP

- Your main catching tools are Sonic Slash, Shadow Piercing and Wolf Fang, Maximum Cannon is also great but since it cost 70 MP, you should skip it anyway
- Again, not sure about Trained Body and Reversal Fighter, choose whichever you prefer
- Giga Drive - Limiter can be switched with Giga Drive - Seisemic Tremor, choose whichever

Raven 2-2.PNG SupahYoshi Link PvP

- Weapon Crash a good active that decreases the damage output if the enemy decides to mana break and catch you. Also really good with the note to increase success rate of debuff.
- Limit Crusher a good active that can stun and also gives stoic. Can be used to catch people off guard and stoic protects you from being comboed.
- Archenemy A good special active when paired with core and is noted. Helps reset the KD counter on your enemy. Good Damage.
- Spiritualised Fury good for reawakening to catch people off guard and also to recharge the awakening meter quicker.

Asheciel Build Hybrid

- Only spend points on actives once, unless they have an additional effect besides damage that scales with higher skill levels.
- Lv1 Counter Chance is helpful in PvP for quick recoveries.
Be careful when you're around classes that can counter though, since they can use it against you.
- Make sure you max out both Basic Magical Offense Training and Intermediate Magical Offense Training. This will help maximize your damage output.
- Burning Nasod Hand will lock you as a pure magic damage class, which is not recommended since some opponents have high magical defense.
- If you really want to focus on damage, get Exploding Nasod Hand and Armor Crash. With this, RF will be able to deal severe physical AND magical damage.
- Maximum Cannon is effective for catching in PvP; the skill pulls the enemies towards you when they get hit by it.
- Cannon Blade is remarkably good for RF. The skill deals severe damage at lv 20.
If you plan to use this skill in PvP, make sure you hit opponents in the face!
Hitting them from behind will result in a quick KD.
- Shadow Punisher along with a skill noted Shadow Piercing will prove helpful in PvP by increasing RF's versatility.
- Spiritualised Fury is better for you if you want to primarily PvE.
It is recommended to invest in both Awakening Charge and Awakening Time if you plan to go this route.

Kazuro Link PvE

- In this build, i picked Burning Nasod Hand, which enables you to deal magical damages with X inputs. Remember, Z loops are still physical. On the other hand, Exploding Nasod Hand deals extra damage, they have 100% crit chances so it can help you a lot. Pick whichever comforts you.
- Trained Body may come in handy. You can finish mobs in a short time, so Victory of Confidence may not have a chance, but you can consider taking it for bosses
- Though Cannon Blade is pretty good for RF, we have Valkyrie's Javelin so i didn't get it

Link PvP

- Exploding Nasod Hand is more useful in PvP, it deals extra damages with no KD rate, so it can be quite useful
- Charged Bolt - Hedgehog knocks down, but not in awakening mode. Charged Bolt - Bloody Thorn however, doesn't knock down, covers wider range and inflicts leg wound with skill note, making it more newbie-friendly
- Valkyrie's Javelin, though powerful, isn't used much in 1v1, but it does wonder in 3v3

Raven 3-2.PNG AVATAR Link Hybrid Version 1

- Haze Explosion is good choice because of his good damage when noted and with passive Air Slicer, and instantaneous cast time in mid air thanks passive Air Slicer
- Bursting Blade is universal skill, have good damage and very good damage in mid air with Air Slicer and with skill note, after lunch an opponent in mid air is good finisher, is nice catcher thanks Anger of Raven
- Harpoon Spear is powerful thanks 1 hit with over 4000% magical damage, extremely strong with double overheat from Overheat Mode Activated!, Awakening Mode with Anger of Raven, and with critical hit; speed of Harpoon Spear prevents manabreak before receiving damage
- Revolver Cannon - OP Bomb is good choice because when is noted have very good damage for such a price and very long range

Link Hybrid Version 2

- Maxed Ignition Crow - Incinerator because of his great range and similar damage to Harpoon Spear
- Added Counter Chance and Shadow Piercing for pvp as catchers

YamiNoShogun Link PvE
Kazuro Link PvE I got many actives in this build as Raven's system does crazy damages, this would help activating it.

Eve

Class Build Creator Link Style Creator's Comments
Eve 1-2.PNG Kroxigor Link Hybrid Level 67 (Hyper Active : None)
Link Hybrid Level 70 (Hyper Active : Yes)
Blazegamma Link Hybrid

-For revamp 3
-Electronic field and surface cutting can be interchanged based on desired physical or magical damage
-sweeper fist for mob/room clearing
-space wrench for anti-boss
-Seal can be switched or skipped if more SP is needed.
-Spend remaining points as desired. Recommend oberon guard, mega electron ball, energy conversion, illusion ray because pewpew lazors, or NOTED dimension link Sentry. (yes, only IF noted so it does not knock down and resets KD instead. Extremely versatile in pvp.)

Kazuro Link PvE Switch Dimension Link - Guardian with Seal of Victory if needed, you can get Dimension Link - Sentry if you want
Link PvP Cheating build and strategy : Catch, gain MP, summon Oberon and Sentry, chase, win
Eve 2-2.PNG AVATAR Link Hybrid Last 52 skill points are used according to personal preference, for example if you want PvE/3v3 PvP I recommend Atomic Shield or for the PvP another catcher like Atomic Blaster - Sonic Gun, can be too something between like Generate Black Hole
RYMERO2001 Link PvP If you want a skill tree for a Code Nemisis made for mostly pvp here you are now if you want to change some things for more of your comfort you can totally do so.
Blazegamma Link PvP for revamp 3

-pvp build with little regard for PvE skills aside from perhaps the multipurpose iron scraps, queen's throne, and illusion ray.
- spend remaining points where desired, probably HA and one other decent PvE mob clearing skill for a more hybrid balance.

Link PvE for revamp 3

-More PvE type build with little to no regard for PvP usefulness
-seal buffs are interchangeable, but prefer extermination so that crit doesn't get normalized with concentration of energy.
-black hole and link guardian also interchangeable on preference of mob clearing.
-same with junk break and queen's throne. Junk break for non-situational fixed damage. Queen's throne for experienced players with good atk speed to burn bosses fast.
-atomic shield for damage buff and protection, again excellent with more atk speed against bosses
- spend remaining points where deired

SonicEXE Link PvE For S3. Taken both buff passives and Critical Buff (aka a 95 second 33% crit buff). Marriage is extremely recommended, but if you dont have the money, take MEB. (didnt list it). Took Guardian for field clearing purposes, I also use the skill note. Took both magic training passives. Use MDA for Awk. Charge purposes and Mana Conv. is obvious. Elegant Steps at cap because I like to be able to move as swiftly as possible. Queens Throne for random mission, awk., and built up damage purposes. Iron Scraps cause in awkening, that thing just, amg *^*. Hyper is hyper.
Kazuro Link PvE - In this build, I abuse Eve's System, so I got Metal Dust Aura and Atomic Blaster - Plasma Gun to charge awakening and / or activation the system

- Switch Metal Dust Aura with Atomic Shield at boss map, or get Encouraging Aura instead

Link PvP My strategy here is the same with PvE build
Eve 3-2 Redo.PNG AVATAR Link PvP

-Taser Pilum effectively used with El Crystal Spectrum modes is very good catcher and crowd control to keep enemy in your combo(especially versus Aisha's and Rena's jumping out)
-Energy Needles is extremely good to fight on close range and can nice surprise the enemy, it is also very good crowd control in 3v3 PvP
-Maxed and noted El Crystal Spectrum with El Energy Reaction allow you to using modes over x3 times longer and thereby using over x3(x6 with El Crystal Spectrum note) less mana on using this skill

TomoSasazaki Link PvP PVP build but still dominates in PVE with it.
Lulliendia Link Hybrid

-Optional for maxing ECS and getting max mp/ duration.

Kazuro Link PvE

-Dimension Link : Guardian can be useful against groupped and/or cornered mobs or boss, switch Linear Divider with this when needed
-Get Amplified El Energy Reactor instead if you have. I prefer spectrum mode so I extended my MP pool

Link PvP - I got Mega Electronball and Tesla Shock but use neither, CBS has skill slot issues

Link PvE

- The final passive choice between Advanced Metabolism Boost and Strong Will is really up to you, I just happen to use Strong Will in this one.
- If you use Guard very frequently, feel free to take some points out of Basic Strength Training and max out Guard instead.

Link PvP

- In the case of PvP, you'll definitely want Advanced Metabolism Boost over Strong Will, the MP gain and critical reduction is amazingly powerful in PvP.
- If you so choose, you can take Artillery Nova instead of Burst Wolf, both are great in PvP. Want to be even more unique? Try ditching both and use Steel Edge, that defense bypass can do wonders if you're facing a more heavily geared enemy.
- Absolutely never raise Metabolic Boost to lv17, it literally does nothing.
- The choice between resistance passives is pretty hard for PvP. Elemental Training: Fire, Water, Nature gives resistance to a lot of really annoying effects, but Elemental Training: Wind, Light, Dark gives resistance to Wind and Dark, the deadliest elements in PvP, as well as a chance to negate Stun. Just go with whichever you prefer for this.

Link
Hybrid

- Again, absolutely never raise Metabolic Boost to lv17, it literally does nothing.
- Since this assumes you'll be doing some PvE and PvP, Adv. Metabolism is once again the 100% recommended choice.
- I've left Guard out of this build because I personally don't use it, but if you want it, just drop a level of Basic Strength Training.

Kazuro Link PvE

- Steel Edge does crazy damage, bypass guards, I choose to use this against shielded mobs, or just for bossing
- Guard is an interesting active, but is not used much in PvE, however it can be used in various situation for its damage reduction (93% at level 20), so can be used while bossing
- While Pandemonium - Chaos does higher damage and boost your critical rate, I find Pandemonium - Fear 's additional hits much more interesting, but since the additional damages are magical, it can be used to deal addition magic damages, but you have Steel Edge for that so this is up to you
- Leap Attack is a great PvP skill, but in PvE, this can be used to gather up Mobs together, I often combine this with Steel Edge to kill a group of mobs with a little more than 100 MP, switch out at boss stage if you need slot for Guard
- Pain of Caladbolg and Lunatic Fury are both powerful, but if you have elemental attributes on your weapon, Pain of Caladbolg can be much more powerful, even more powerful when some Diabolic Esper used their HA before. But feel free to get Lunatic Fury, remember to stay in Awakening to get most damage from the skill
- Sudden Burster deal quite high damage, but very optional
- Artillery Nova deal damage in wide area, but since the skill need charging and deal magical damage, Burst Wolf can be more useful, but since the latter's range is rather narrow, I don't recommend it
- Land Demolisher - Heavy Arms deal additional hits, will work lovely with Pandemonium - Fear while building up your awakening beads, but if you need to clear a map fast, Land Demolisher - Earthquake can do better
- Advanced Metabolism Boost for its additional MP boost, but if you find Metabolism Boost and Magic Necklace are enough, then feel free to get Strong Will

Link PvP

- Most skills are explained above, Iron Howling for easy catches, Aiming Shot to kill near-dead runners, or just interrupt Aisha's and Rena's MP charging, with skill note, it can be rather useful, Reload for charging ammos and confirming combos, but since you don't need ammos too much, and already have Sudden Burster, this is optional

Chung 2-2 Redo.PNG Blazegamma Link A Silver Shooter based build

-rumble shot and leg shot interchangeable based on preference and if skill noted
-spend extra points as desired.

Ruphus
Link - Notice for Dual Buster and Headshot.
Gameboy224 Link Hybrid A hybrid cannoneer build. Designed to be quick in PvP while being just as destructive and PvE.

-Head Shot note is highly suggested.
-Dual Buster v. Heavy Railgun can we interchangeable.
-Remodel Magazine to cater to heavy ammo usage in PvP or unawakened in PvE.
-AS-QB and CC for pure PvE destructive force, field clearing and bossing.
-Leg shot and Bullet Blitz for quick damage and catching in PvP.

Kazuro Link PvE

- Since Deadly Chaser is magic-oriented, and have most ammo capacity of all Chungs, Siege Shelling can do acceptable damage or just for killing birds
- Double Fire and Head Shot are wonderful, but you don't need that many actives in PvE, instead, especially when these skills don't penetrade enemies, instead I chose Magnum Shot and Rumble Shot, mainly for getting 3 bead awakening
- Heavy Railgun does decent damage, useful for cleaning linear maps
- Remodel Magazine increase your ammo capacity to 12, but if you can manage to stay in berserk mode whole time, which passively does whatever this passive can, this becomes very optional. On the other hand, your main PvE damage source is your Cannon, not Silver Shooter, Remodel Rifle isn't that useful, but if you got Sharpshooter Syndrome, it can help while looping XZ
- Shooting Star is very interesting, though Artillery Strike-Quantum Ballista is more powerful for bossing, choose whichever you like
- Sharpshooter Syndrome doesn't deal much damage, but gives you a buff that increases critical chance and headshot chance, making your XZ loops just as useful as actives, also helps with party-playing. Comet Crasher however, deals damage in wide area, can be used for clearing maps, but since it costs 200MP, and you already have Heavy Railgun, you don't really need it
- Though Bullet Blitz jumps around, being able to clear out a large group of mobs, Rapid Cannon which cost no MP at all, and is a free skill in Berserk mode
- Intense Showtime defines a PvE DC, decreasing 17.5% of all skills MP cost, making 200 MP skills only ~165 MP. More interesting, all skills cooldown except HA and couple skill are reduced by 70% at level 7, you can spam Rapid Cannon every 3 seconds and Rumble Shot every 2 seconds, both are free skills. The only problem is getting 3 beads awakening, but you have Rumble Shot and Shooting Star to solve that

Link PvP

- Double Fire is optional, but Head Shot is highly recommended
- Dual Buster can be used for catching or dodging, timing needed
- Remodel Magazine along with Gas Piston System helps charging ammo, so there is no need getting Reload, feel free to however. I didn't get Intense Showtime as you rarely get Berserk mode in PvP
- Again, Quantum Ballista deals crazy damage, but since it hardly has any delay, it is hard to get this skill hit, unless you can sacrifice an awakening orb. Shooting Star however chases , can be used on runners, or near-dead opponents
- Bullet Blitz can be used for catching with only 100 MP, works just like Chain Lightning
- Leg Shot is OP in PvP, giving a 13s debuff which, whether combined with water attribute or not, make people look funny trying to run

Chung 3-2 Redo.PNG ShadeMalkior Link PvE

- "But Shade, Grenade Launcher does more damage! Yes, I'm aware, but I'd rather not use a skill that's bugged to the point that it's only reliable at close range, where as Hand Grenade always works, and can deal more damage if the note activates anyways.
- Reload Mastery is left at lv11 because that's all you really need, 50% chance to reload more ammo.
- Big Bang Stream is left at lv11 because the damage increase isn't worth leveling it any further, and 30 seconds is long enough for you to easily regain the MP needed to cast it again.
- Now for the controversial part: Chaos Cannon and Carpet Bombing. This eventually came down to making TT more versatile. Chaos Cannon is a far better skill for bossing now that it can be rapid-fired, and Dread Chase takes care of the mobbing/room clear power that Carpet Bombing would have, with the added bonus that it can wrap corners in maps.

Link PvP

- Tactical Field - Endurance and Mortar are both left at lv1 because there's no grand bonus in leveling them any further for PvP's sake.
- Endurance is chosen over Raid because Super Armor is a serious pain to fight in PvP.
- Both normal Detonation and Impact Detonation are viable, I just put SP in normal because I prefer the screen freeze and approach lunge. If Detonation isn't your style, you can always switch it out for noted Brutal Swing.
- Lv2 Tolerance Aura because holy mother of reduced damage.

Link Hybrid

- So why maxxed Mortar in this one? I actually use it in PvE, so better make that little pea shooter do as much damage as possible.
- Raid is the optimum choice here, since that MP boost is far too good to pass for anyone who plans to PvE at any time.
- Pretty much everything else is the usual fare, and I've already explained the more controversial choices in the other build comments.

Ara 1-2.PNG Aubud Link PvE -Tweaked to have 2 Secret Arts

-Vigor Energize +1 and Breaking +1
-I focus on Secret Tiger Art because it costs less Mana and thus more spammable
-Moonlight Slash and Shadow Knot are good mob cleaners

SayoAragami Link PvE This is a dual Secret Art PvE build.

- Exorcism Stance 3 : Shadoweave is maxed because it has a very long horizontal reach and is the only reliable source of magic damage available against Nasod Inspector as a Sakra Devanam. It is also useful as a mob clear, or as a method of grouping monsters closer, which can be followed into a skill cancel. Skill note highly recommended, the reduced MP used is what gives this skill its spammability.
- Dragon Stance 2 : Pulling Thrust is maxed for great burst damage. Skill note recommended for defense ignore.
- Energy Absorption is kept at level 11 as it gives 2 spirit on hit. Level 17 is also viable, if you have the skill ring (Which brings it to level 21) for 3 spirit.
- Tiger Stance 1 : Rock Smash can be left at level 1, but can be maxed. I maxed it because of the damage potential when noted.
- Abundant Power is left at level 8 for the maximum amount of MP added. (+75 MP)
- Dragon Stance 3 : Eight Trigram Palm is maxed for extra damage. Can be left at level 1.
- Tiger Stance 2 : Tiger Claw and Tiger Stance 3 : Earth Axis are left at level 1 because of the poor damage scaling.
- Dragon Stance 4 : Moonlight Slash is maxed because it dictates the strength of Blast. It is also a good Area of Effect skill.
- Counter Switch left at level 1 for canceling purposes.
- Self-defense Spirit is chosen over Flashy Wit because it provides Ara with more bulk, and is not a % chance to activate.
- Flying Kite or Suppression is based on personal preference.
- Full Moon Slash helps with executing the secret art faster, as well as giving the player the ability to use the skill quickly, rather than staying in one spot for an extended amount of time, charging. Tiger Power is helpful when your critical chance is low, giving the player more damage, it is also nice for party support. Choose whichever suits your play style.

RYMERO2001 Link Hybrid A hybrid Build utilizing both the secret arts and the power that SD has both in pve and pvp
Kazuro Link PvE

- Pulling Pierce, along with Double Collision and Moonlight Slash are maxed for Secret Art, Moonlight Slash can be used alone for its wide range and heavy damage
- Quick Attack deals decent damage, with skill note, it helps in spamming skills. It cost 1 or 2 orbs, but since Sakra Devanam hardly has any problem with orbs, you will be fine
- Shadow Knot is reliable in dealing magical damage for only 150 mp
- Rock Crash, Tiger Claw and Low Brandish are left at level 1 just to get the other secret art, with lv 20 Filled Power, the art costs only 95 MP if started with full orbs, dealing decent damage, leaves a debuff and has little cooldown time, not reliable for dealing damage however
- Breaking for cancelling skill, along with Quick Attack
- Peerlessness Slash is good for gaining orbs and great for killing birds, recommended to use on ground so you can cancel it
- Suppression deals less damage than Swallow Assault but has larger range, infinite height and gives a debuff, choose whichever you like

Link PvP

- Wind Wedge doesn't deal as much damage as Pulling Pierce, but costs less MP and much more useful for catching, its damage is not too low for 35 MP
- Body of Steel is another catching skill, although it doesn't consume any MP, it takes 2 orbs but moves forward while stunning, useful but keep an eye on your orbs
- Double Collision can work like Wind Wedge, but moves faster and further. Although Dragon Falling is just as good, Double Collision with skill note can help a lot in PvP
- Filled Power increases your max MP, and gives back MP when you have extra orb. This can help in certain situations but since you rarely have full orbs in PvP, and extra MP can be counter-effective (Luna Blade for example), you can consider not taking this passive
- The 3 first steps of Tiger Art is often used for gaining orbs, however since Rock Crash is much slower, and neither have Super Armor nor Evasion, I often just use 2nd and 3rd step followed by Breaking
- Suppression though useful for catching, deals less damage and consumes all 10 orbs. Flying Kite on the other hand, teleports to the enemy, dealing nearly 3000% damage on the first hit, and can be cancelled right after. You can use Flying Kite to hit once, cancel it, gain one orb and repeat when the cooldown comes off

Ara 2-2.PNG AVATAR Link PvP Version 1

- Killing Howl are very useful in PvP 1v1 and 3v3 thanks possession of penetration enemy's defense and low MP and orbs consuming; Wolf Stance 3 : Wolf Claw is maxed for high physical damage with stoic, Wolf Stance 4 : Wolf Fang maxed for Killing Howl and very high magical damage as 60 mana skill(is also good the addition in combo after of Wolf Stance 3 : Wolf Claw and very good combo finisher), Wolf Stance 2 : Wind Wedge you need only on 1lvl to start Killing Howl
- High Speed maxed for wonderful damage per second and for high mobility
- Suppression Energy is very universal because of good damage, lowering defense, sucking everything in range to the center, big hitbox, power stun

Link PvP Version 2(need ring on active skills for obtain 2/3 orbs from Mana Swap)

- Maxed and noted Rakshasa Stance 1 : Soul Reaping is the cheapest special skill in game with powerful damage for such a price

TomoSasazaki Link PVP Specializes in PVP but works great PVE wise as well.
SayoAragami Link PvE This is a single Secret Art PvE build that focuses solely on Purgatory, it has both a good vertical and horizontal range.

- Exorcism Stance 3 : Shadoweave is maxed because it has a very long horizontal reach. It is useful as a mob clear, or as a method of grouping monsters closer, which can be followed into a skill cancel. Skill note highly recommended, the reduced MP used is what gives this skill its spammability.
- Life Swap is left at level 11 as it provides the maximum of 3 spirit energy acquired.
- Infernal Circle has good vertical and horizontal reach. It has very good damage (even when cancelled), and is instantly cast. This skill is taken instead of Wolf Fang, therefore Killing Howl can not be used.
- Rakshasa Stance 3 : Spear Prison has a very high vertical range. Although somewhat weak, it deals with clearing weaker mobs as well as flying enemies.
- Either Self-defense Spirit or Resurrection can be chosen in lieu of the other. Since there are Resurrection Stones, I chose Self-defense Spirit. In the event that Resurrection Stones can not be used/ are not available, Resurrection can be a cheaper alternative.

Dude11111111 Link Hybrid (First time making a build so editors feel free to fix.)

- This build is similar to SayoAragami's but is geared towards those with only 4 skill slots and not in a couple/married.
- Note that it does require a lot of mana, but is a great energy builder.
- Works in PVP but is better at PVE.

Kazuro Link PvE

Singe-Art PvE build (Purgatory) - This build focuses on Purgatory, which deals crazy damage in PvE and has large range
- I got Quick Attack for the same reason explained in SD build
- Conversion: Health is left at lv 11 for 3 orb gain, max if you use it for damage
- Hell of Tornado is the reason I give up Wolf Art, this skill cost 170mp but reaches high and wide while dealing insane damage whether cancelled or not
- Reflection doesn't only reflect magical projectiles, but also boosts your magical damage by 23% at level 16, can be used before HA, Purgatory or any other damage dealing skill
- Self-defense Spirit is pretty useful, but Resurrection is much cheaper if you lack Resurrection Stones, especially in Henrir Challenge mode. Pick whichever comforts you
- Energy Void deals more damage, but takes longer to execute, and knocks down mobs on the last, while Suppression: Energy gives a debuff and stuns. Get whichever you like

Link PvP

- Base job skills are pretty much the same in SD build
- In this build, I got Wolf Art which costs only 135 MP but deals ton of damage, very cheap way to deal damage, beware of mana breaking though
- Finger Bullet and Energy Bead require many orbs, but deals much damage while costing little to no MP, around 2000%. With the help of Conversion: Health, orbs will be not much of a problem

ASRIcon.png SayoAragami [Link] PvE Version 1 - Dual Secret Art PvE build that focuses on both Night Parade of One Hundred Souls and Pulverization

- Energy Absorption is left at 11 to gain two spirit, 17 is viable if you have a skill ring and skill points to spare.
- Exorcism Stance 3 : Shadoweave is maxed for its utility for gathering and quick damage. It is HIGHLY recommended that you acquire the skill note for this skill as it reduces the MP cost of Night Parade of One Hundred Souls.
- Assimilation can be left at 10 or maxed. Level 10 for the maximum MP boost or Max for extra Eun command damage.
- Specter Power Release is maxed for KD reduction. Can also be allotted skill points based on how you want.
- Exorcism Stance 4 : Darkness Sever maxed for max damage for Night Parade of One Hundred Souls.
- Spell : Aerial Blades is maxed because of great mob clearing utility, since it can be used mid air, it's great for pesky flying-mobs.
- Spell : Necromancy or Spell : Thunder can be chosen, but it is recommended to max to get the most out of the skill. I currently use Spell : Necromancy for the buff effect.
- Phantom Fox Stance 4 : Fox's Meal is maxed for maximum damage for Pulverization.
- Spell : Spiritual Eye is maxed for full passive effect. You could also choose to pick good 'ol Self-defense Spirit if you so desire.
- The choice between Suppression: Specter and Fox Fire is up to you. The choice is basically whether you want a debuff effect from the former or a long range skill from the latter. Fox Fire is also a formidable skill against single bosses as well as bosses which are small. I personally switch between the two skills.
- The choice is also yours for Repose of Souls or Fox's Laugh, it depends on which secret art you want to have more power. I personally chose the former.
- Due to the revamp of Asura's Hyper Active, Millennium Fox now has a very, very long range and nice damage. It acts as a large field cleaner, and is recommended to max.

Link PvE Version 2 - Single Secret Art PvE Build that focuses on Night Parade of One Hundred Souls

- The main difference between this skill build and the previous is the lack of Phantom Fox Stance 2 : Discordance, the addition of Vitality, and Phantom Fox Stance 4 : Fox's Meal is reduced to 1. Asura has a lot of ways to gain MP, but not spirit orbs, so Phantom Fox Stance 4 : Fox's Meal can be used to gain some spirit.
- Fox's Laugh is not used in this build because Pulverization is not used.
- At the cost of the Pulverization art, this build allows you to gain mp very fast. The cool down of Vitality is 10 seconds, and at max level Vitality gives 90 MP, which is A LOT of MP.
- Many comments on individual skills can be found in the previous build, so take a look at that for explanations of my choices.
- This is currently the build that I use. - The linked build is more of a "skeleton" edit it to your will.

Kazuro Link PvE

- Single art build, focusing on Exorcism Art
- Quick Attack and Shadow Knot explained in SD builds
- Although Phantom Fox art is quite good, you have to give up Mana Drain for it, so no ...
- Specter of Blade deal damage around you in a large area, and can be used mid-air, it's good, but remember 200 MP cost is not cheap
- Specter of Thunder 's additional hits appear twice as often, while dealing the same damages as Necromancy, but doesn't give you and your party extra 14% crit rate. Take the former if you are confident in your base critical rate
- Fox's Meal is not used for damage, but for gaining orbs with only 100 MP, it's good enough if you can gather up mobs
- Suppression: Specter and Fox Fire are tough choices. Personally I find Fox Fire much more interesting, it just doesn't have the debuff

- Grand Master has some wiggle room for PvE. I've stuck a few points into Leap and Kick just for the sake of having them there as chaining skills.
- Sword of Judgement is favored over Sword of Victory due to the fact that it's a Gale move. This means you can use it repeatedly on bosses for massive damage.
- The combination of Lv20 Rushing Sword and the Waltz of the Sword passive is amazing to have in PvE. If you do all five slashes, that's 3,260% Physical damage for a mere 101MP.
- Initiate is optional, but I find the extra MP gain on combo starts to be very helpful when bossing.
- I really wish I could still recommend Saber - Extinction, but Spiral Blast vastly out-damages it.
- Grand Master's version of Sonic Blade is very useful in PvE, particularly against flying annoyances (wyverns, gargoyles, harpies), so you'll want that instead of Critical Dive.

Link PvP

- Probably the biggest changes here are the higher level actives, besides Rushing Sword. While flashy, it lacks utility compared to Dodge and Slash, Leap, and Kick.
- Sword of Victory is definitely your PvP choice, it's basically a better version of Lord Knight's Armageddon Blade.
- Advanced Knight Mastery's effects are too good to skip for anyone planning to PvP at any point.
- The other big change is Critical Dive over Sonic Blade. It's a great approaching skill, the range reminds me a bit of Brutal Swing, but a little less vertical.

Link Hybrid - Fairly similar to the PvP build in terms of choices, but some SP's been moved around to assure that Spiral Blast remains at max level.
HidekiYamamoto Link Hybrid A flexible hybrid Grand Master build that works well even without a B slot.

- Like in my Blazing Heart build, get Dodge and Slash to level 11, or you can get it to 17 if you have a Ring of Flexibility so you can execute three dodges in a row. If you do not have a Skill Ring of Flexibility, then get Dodge and Slash only up to level 11. Get the note for D&S.

- Rushing Sword is going to be one of your most used skills because of Grand Master's passive Waltz of the Sword, which increases the amount of slashes you can do with Rushing Sword and also reduces its manacost. Get the note for this skill.

- Leap and Counter Chance have been left at level one because they're mainly only for utility, but you can choose to level up Counter Chance for more accuracy.

- You'll also use Spiral Blast (Elesis) a lot for burst damage when in Annihilation, so max it. And get the note for it too.

- The choice between Heavy Stunner and Power Break is up to you, Power Break is useful in both PvE and PvP as it can increase your damage output while Heavy Stunner is more of a PvP skill as it inflicts Power Stun when noted. You must get the note for whichever skill you'll get.

- Because of Enhanced Agility being bugged(I think), it's much better to choose Knight's Destiny because of its utility in both PvE and PvP.

- Saber - Extinction is a useful room-clearing skill in PvE and will be your only source of magic attack as a Grand Master. Get the note if you decide to take it.

- Sword of Victory and Sword of Judgement are both useful, Judgement is an extremely useful PvE skill because it can be spammed when in Gale mode and Victory, while it doesn't deal as much damage as Judgement, is useful too as it increases your reach and attack power. You should note whichever skill you'll take.

- Do I even need to explain why you have to max Iron Body - Strong?

- Provoke is an extremely useful skill. It increases any affected opponents' damage by 10% but at the same time it also increases your damage by 30%. If used at the right time, it can also be used to counter attacks.

- Sonic Blade and Critical Dive are both good skills but I personally prefer Sonic Blade because of its range and its utility in both PvE and PvP. If you get either skill, leave the skill of your choice at level one.

- Drastic Charge and Snap Crasher are... odd skills. Snap can cancel /some/ super armor frames, it can hit enemies behind you and it pulls them in front of you, and it can also be used in the air. Drastic gives you super armor and the skill can be extended by holding down the skill key. Pick your poison.

- Initiate is one of Grand Master's vital passives. It increases the hitstun, mana gain and damage of every first attack in your combos.

- The choice between Juggernaut Buster and War Prelude should be pretty obvious. Get Prelude, it's a great party/solo buff that increases your movement speed and mana gain and it also deals damage. You can choose Buster too if you want, though it's only useful in clearing rooms and you already have Saber - Extinction for that job.

- Skilled Knight and Waltz of the Sword... Both are really useful passives, but I prefer Waltz. Mastery is a great passive to have in PvP as it increases the KD you get which means you get knocked down faster and it lets you get up faster, but Waltz just outclasses it(in my opinion anyway). It decreases Rushing Sword's mana cost and it also increases the number of slashes you can do with it, meaning you can dish out more damage for lesser MP. And the manacost is decreased a lot more when in Gale mode.

- Seeing as this is a hybrid build, you don't need to put points into the training passives.

- There's still a little bit of SP left with this build if you decide not to level up Dodge and Slash to level 17. You can invest these points into any skill you'd like.

Kazuro Link PvE

- Rushing Sword is what defines a GrM, dealing over 600% for only 25MP, and is a Gale skill. Combined with the level 60 passive, it can be your main damage source in PvE
- Spiral Blast is quite good. It is hard to get all hit connected, but if used on stoic mobs, it is quite strong. Also this is an Annihilation skill so it can help charging Gale
- Saber - Extinction though good for clearing maps, lacks damage for a 200MP skill
- Sword of Judgement is a Gale skill and deals acceptable damage. But Sword of Victory is more interesting as it gives you a bigger sword, not as big as Lord Knight's, but it is big ...
- Sonic Blade isn't used often in PvE, but it can help killing birds. Snap Crusher can also be used on air, but only few first hits hit
- War Prelude is more of a buff skill, but also deal damage in a large area, useful in team-playing

Link PvP

- Heavy Stunner can be useful in many situation, for switching side, winning hit trade, etc
- Stoic can be used the same way as mana breaking, except you knock your opponent down, and gurantee 100MP cost. Remember if you do this, your KD count won't decrease, which means opponent's next combo won't last long
- Chilvary can be useful in 2v2 or 3v3 PvP, but in 1v1, I prefer Agility Mastery for extra mobility
- First Strike can help a lot, you can just loop >>Z, or X drop more than often
- War Prelude is chosen for its large range, but since the hitstun is rather short, it is advised to catch opponents on air

BH.png ShadeMalkior Link PvE

- Wild Shock is chosen over Rushing Sword to help with building Gale.
- The choice between Enhanced Concentration and Body of Fire is personal preference, as both serve the purpose of increasing Blazing Heart's damage output. Body of Fire has the added bonus of giving some Fire resistance.
- Overall, the main focus of this build is to give Blazing Heart access to numerous powerful AoE skills, such as Burst Rising, Sword Fire, Eternal Fire, and Blazing Dance.
- The primary chaining actives in this build are Explosive Fist and Red Lotus Sword. Explosive Fist is mainly for raw damage and building Gale, while Sword of Red Lotus should be your primary low-cost buff.
- I've chosen Invincible Fire as the last passive because Fire Stigma's debuff isn't particularly useful against PvE enemies.

Link PvP

- All four of the 2nd Job skill choices have been reversed, funnily enough.
- Fire Wall is excellent for holding enemies down or laying down an area you want zoned off shortly.
- Flame Rose functions in a similar manner to Harsh Chaser, but much less glitchy and with a burn.
- Blazing Wing is like a Magic Missile from hell, but it bounces back and forth, holding enemies in place as you approach.
- Fire Stigma is a brutal debuff against classes that rely on critical for their damage output, such as Deadly Chaser.
- The 300MP has also been switched to Imperial Blade because of its lower hit count, lowering the chance of it being mana broken.

Link Hybrid - Not much to say here besides that this is a simple fusion of the two previous builds.
HidekiYamamoto Link Hybrid A build which is good for both PvP and PvE and is manageable even without a B slot.

- Get Dodge and Slash to level 11 so you can do two evasive dashes. You can use it to close the gap between you and your opponent in PvP and it can also reset the launch counter.
- Max Rushing Sword. It deals a maximum of 1956% damage and only costs 75 MP, being a more efficient skill compared to most 100 MP special actives.
- Leave Leap at level 1 as you will use it for utility and not for damage.
- Leave Counter Chance at level 1 because it's only used for quickly countering your opponents when you get knocked down. If you don't want to stack Accuracy for PvP, then invest some points on it if you wish, although Accuracy isn't really needed in PvP as Evade stackers are rare.
- Explosive Fist is one of Elesis' bread and butter skills. It can be used to quickly fill up your Gale bar or deal a good amount of damage with a full Annihilation gauge. Max it.
- There's really no need for getting Kick as it's not needed in PvE and you can just X drop your opponents in PvP.
- The choice between Burst Rising and Burst Wave is up to you, although I chose Burst Rising because it can be spammed in PvE with Gale.
- You can get Enhanced Concentration instead of Body of Fire if you wish to do so, they're both useful passives in both PvP and PvE, Body of Fire gives extra fire resistance and increases your fiery combos' damage while Enhanced Concentration increases your chance to do a critical hit and at the same time increases your overall critical damage.
- You don't need to put points into Red Lotus Sword as Invincible Fire will disable your opponents' fire resistance with certain combos and skills.
- Scaldic Sword is preferred over Fire Wall as it has better damage, is executed quicker and travels a relatively large distance while not knocking down your opponent so it can be used as a combo starter/catching skill in PvP.
- The choice between Fireplay and Flame Rose is up to you. Personally, I don't use either. But if I were given a choice, I would pick Flame Rose.
- You can pick either Blazing Wing or Blazing Dance. Blazing Wing is more of a room-clearing skill while Blazing Dance is a bossing skill.
- As mentioned above, Invincible Fire will negate your opponent's fire resistance which comes in handy in PvP, although you can choose Fire Stigma if you want. If you do get Fire Stigma, then you should put points into Red Lotus Sword.
- Do not put points into Basic Magical Offense Training and Intermediate Magical Offense Training as the stat increase isn't really needed.

Kazuro Link PvE

- Though BH is a magical character, Rushing Sword is still powerful and cheap
- Fire Fist can help dealing magical damage, I mainly use it for charging Gale / consuming Annihilation though
- Burst Rising covers nearly all your screen, great for cleaning maps. It is advised to jump in the middle of a group of mobs to hit both side
- Sword Fire is good, but since the MP cost is 200, this should be used in Gale mode only
- Infernal Blade looks good, and is a Gale skill, but Eternal Fire is way better. Choose whichever you want, but I recommend the latter
- Fireworks and Scarlet Rose are both great, but you 've had enough actives
- In PvE, Blaze Wing is better, as Blazing Dance covers much more narrow area
- Stigma of Fire for its debuff, but Inextinguishable Fire is decent for dealing pure damage

Link PvP This build relies on damage from DoT and actives

- I've chosen Dynamo Research - Configuration over Dissolution because your most powerful skill bursts will be while you're in DP Mode, so you'll want those skills doing as much damage as possible.
- Infinite Library isn't maxxed because the knockdown reduction isn't all that useful in PvE, and the MP regeneration boost is barely noticeable. Furthermore, maxxed Fantasy Tracer gives plenty of MP regen in DP Mode.
- Instead of leveling Particle Shot, I've instead raised Dynamo Research - Overcharge to a higher level to increase the effects of Pulse Bullet.
- Pulse Cannon's inclusion is mainly for the fact that its long delay makes it useful for dodging late-game boss attacks.
- Neither Magnetron nor Desolver is much use in PvE, so I've skipped that tier entirely.

Link PvP

-Shade, I fixed your build just a bit since Body of Transcendence isn't able to go to 7, so I added a point into Dynamo Configuration - Pylons. Sorry I don't know how to make an side build, so yeah.~ It's your choice with what you do with extra SP. You can also take it out of Dynamo Configuration -Pylon if you wish, I just added it for more customization and a bit of power in boss situations. That probably pushed it more into the hybrid section, but I hope you understand. >.<

-This time, Dissolution is favored over Composition because you'll want to charge DP Mode quickly in PvP. The sooner you can activate it, the sooner you can unleash the pain train.
- Particle Accelerator has been added for its useful large-range Stun attack.
- Phase Shift has been included for advanced mind games. If you don't want to use it, remove the SP in that and put it into Dynamo Research - Overcharge, or switch it out for Mind Break if you're in the mood to ruin the day of any other magic-based class you meet.
- Magnetron is useful this time around. Combined with Particle Shot, it can be an amazing aid for catching.
- The only other major differences are a higher level Reverse Reactor and maxxed Infinite Library. For PvP, you'll be needing that knockdown reduction.

Link Hybrid

- For a Hybrid build, both Dissolution and Composition can be useful, just choose whichever fits your play style better.
- The one major sacrifice I made for Hybrid is the lack of Rush Twirl. Having a pseudo Rasengan is fun, but Add has plenty of other useful actives to tide him over losing one.

Kazuro Link PvE

- Quake Buster and Conqueror are great for both clearing maps and bossing, recommended to be in DP mode while using the 2 skills. As these both 2 skills are counted as DP skills, Dynamo Research - Configuration increases their damages
- Pulse Cannon can be used for dodging, or quickly get into Nasod Armor Combo, not for damage, so it isn't maxed
- Dynamo Configuration - Pylon itself doesn't do much, but when combined with Quicksilver Frenzy, each hit from Pylon triggers Frenzy's additional hit, together they are really good
- Psionic Beat is not to bad, especially when you have Dark element weapon

Link PvP

This build focuses on catching and dealing damage with Nasod Armor Combo, and does burst damage with Conqueror or Quake Buster
Quicksilver Accel is great for catching, but be careful using it

MMNEW.png Kazuro Link PvE

-This build focuses on dealing most damage possible to bosses, while still capable of clearing map fast
-The combo of Drone Activator and Flick Disk does tons of damage with less than 150 mp, could be the best bossing technique for MM
Also you have Ultimate Fury while Drone Activator is cooling down
-For map clearing, you have Phantom Seeker, a pretty cheap, but effective skill
-Delayed Explosion can be left out to make slot for Marriage Skill

Link PvP

-Shooting Chaser is a cheating skill in PvP, especially when you can do Gliding-Skill trick
However, Phase Shift and Mind Break can also be used for catching -Ultimate Fury, strong as it is in 1v1 situation, doesn't have a chance to come in handy, other skills are too profitable
-Again, Flick Disk over Fission Shot as it is capable of dealing as much or more damage. When Drone Activator's mark is put on the opponent, you have to turn around to use Fission Shot to maximize its use
-Panzer Buster to finish those near-dying runners, or just runners

DENEW.png Kazuro Link PvE

-Maximum Strike will be your main map-clearing skill, a cheap and spammable skill if you know how to use Seal of Time
-All other skills do their best at boss stage, but still can do well when Maximum Strike is on cooldown

Link PvP

-Diabolic Esper is an OP character in PvP so there should be not much problem with making your own skill tree
-I picked Reverse Circle over Reverse Stigma as it is more newbie-friendly
-Although Void Field does much damage and disable opponent, I prefer Void Impact or Force Finger for catching and Moonlight Rhapsody for damage dealing in 1v1
In 3v3 or 2v2 however, Void Field does a better job than Void Impact

-I use Hunting Prey as Lu to gather mobs.
- Aura of Darkness can be switched to Aura of Punishment but neither are put in skill slots, I chose to use noted Dead Hands instead, which also activates Lord of Terror and Seal of Terror
- Power of Oriax can be spammed for Super Armor and extra MP gain, more useful with skill note.
-Apollyon is better than Oblivion in clearing maps
-Either Phantom Blade or Dancing Blade is useful, I prefer Phantom Blade for its flashiness
-Supreme Punishment can do ridiculously high damage on a group of mob, also, you need some more Lu > Ciel switching skills

Link PvP

-Basically the way you use skills in this build is similar in PvE build above
-Instead of Apollyon, I got Oblivion for its large range and that instant death
-Aura of Punishment over Aura of Darkness because of the enemies' critical chance reduction, however Aura of Darkness can be good for being offensive
-Summon Darkness over Supreme Punishment because it can deal much damage, even when being hit, also share damage with you. Since Lu/Ciel's MP management is rather easy, it's not hard to get 200 mp
-Although Stomp is a great skill for catching, I can't decide which skill to leave out to fit that in
-I don't use HA, but got it anyway

CielNNEW.png Kazuro Link PvE

-Noblesse have serious skill slot problems, and B slot is highly recommended
-Aura of Darkness can be switched to Aura of Punishment. If you are going to use neither, get Hunting Prey instead
-Swift Smash and Spectral Spear are optional
