    Crusader pros and cons

    Pros:

    + Highest attack speed and dodge.

    + With the progression of the server and the character himself, the strength of the crusader grows more and more.

    + Strong set of core skills:

    • Illusion Slash that deals very high damage from a distance, has a fast cooldown
    • Stealth, allowing you to move in invisibility
    • Stun that immobilizes the enemy for a long time

    Cons:

    - Despite the high HP and defense gains, it is still quite a "thin" class compared to others.

    - A very popular class, which is why the equipment and gems for the Crusader are usually more expensive than for other classes.

    - In order to start showing good results in pk, farming and leveling, you first need at least some investments in equipment and character.

    How to become a crusader

    At level 10, the player needs to complete quest to get the 1st class of Swordsman. The quest is taken from NPC Newbie Guide - Senna in Argent (2224,2786). Upon reaching level 40, you need to complete quest for obtaining the 2nd class, which is taken from the NPC Castle Guard - Peter in Argent (2193,2767). The recommended places for leveling can be found on the page Character leveling.

    What stats and skills to learn and level up

    Main stat of crusader which should be increased to a maximum (100) in the first place is strength. Additional stats: agility and constitution. At the beginning of the game, it is worth to put free stat points equally into str and agi until character's agi, taking into account equipment, reaches 54. After that, you need to continue increasing only str. The indicator that you should focus on is attack speed. The maximum damage of "Illusion Slash" is achieved at an 210 attack speed. The player needs to strive to ensure that over time, taking into account the equipment, the crusader's attack speed reaches 210 passively (without Berserk and without buffs). If you need to reset extra agi or str points, you can purchase stat reset potions in item mall for IMPs or for gold from NPC Baby in Argent (2202,2776).

    Recommended order of skill leveling:

    • Concentration - 2
    • Sword Mastery - 5
    • Illusion Slash - 10

    After reaching Lv 10 Illusion Slash:

    • Concentration - 5
    • Berserk - 5
    • Dual Sword Mastery - 4
    • Blood Frenzy - 8
    • Deftness - 3
    • Stealth - 1
    • Shadow Slash - 1

    After reaching Lv 1 Stealth and Lv 1 Shadow Slash:

    Each player decides for himself in which direction to move further, and which skills to improve in what order. For example:

    • Poison Dart - 1, Stealth - 2 and Shadow Slash - 10 for better results in pk.
    • Dual Sword Mastery - 10 for increasing min and max attack what could be usefull for pk, farming and leveling.
    • Blood Frenzy - 10 and Berserk - 10 for increasing attack speed what can be usefull for farming and leveling.
    • Deftness - 10 for increasing dodge what can be usefull for farming and leveling.

    If you need to reset your skills, you can purchase the Book for Regaining Ability in item mall for IMPs in section "Character".
