Explanation


- Why Swordsman C3?
Because the IMC can't into % scales! Which in practice means that all the skills of previous classes in practice not cause damage in endgame content. Seriously! Monsters there usually have 250k+ HP and a lot mdef and pdef. Rank 7 Fencers many (including myself) has the Barbarian C3 what was intended to fill gaps like AoE or Slash damage. Well Cleave maximum hits for around 10k damage so it's useless as hell now if we don't look in barbarian for stuns or buffs. This is why Swordsman C3 suit here well. At first you have Pain Barrier 15 and this is propably most important part here. Rank 7 was full of monsters that knocking down us? Bosses were annoying? Now it's even worse so Pain Barrier help here a lot. Another thing is Restrain because stun affect with any skill you use, like Sept Etoiles or Lunge so passive ability to stun enemies is usefull.
Oh and I forgot about Swordsman Circle 3 Costume! One of the best outfit from TP shop! If wanna look stylish you can buy it! Yes to wear this costume you must be Swordsman C3. So sad...

- Why Peltasta C1?
This isn't even question ok? At first Guardian help here a lot as always. Now when they change this skill and scale with % value is value not only for 18% more evasion, but for 17% more pdef too! Another skill of course is Swash Buckling and it's a taunt of course and don't forget you have +25% Hp bonus while this skill is active. You should take this class on Rank 2.

- Why Corsair C1?
Well because gap between ranks 4 and 6 must be filled with something and Corsair suit here perfect. Reason? At first of course Jolly Roger! How this work? You put flag and kill near opponents so far as you are able. Another reason is Unity attribute who gives up 12.5% chance to ignore damage from your opponents while Jolly Roger is active and you are in range of flag. Note that this value is equal only when you are in five man party. Oh and you have a chance to pillage items from enemies, what this mean? Somethime he can drop something before he die. Double drop is always nice right? But on 5 lvl skill this chance isn't high. And don't forget about Iron Hook perfect in TBL and to stop some non boss type monsters.

- Why Fencer C3?
Because without all circles the entire process of building this class make no sense. Let me explain why a little later.

All about Fencer


Whole Fencer mechanics work on a combination of skills and synergy. It will be easier to explain how each skill work.


Epee Garde [5/5] - The reason of all this excitement around the third Fencer circle. 30 seconds buff increases critical damage we inflict. Basically is 150% damage but with the Epee increases the value of 100%, which makes it critical damage amount to 300% of our damage that normally would we deal. Thanks to this fencer is now one of the strongest Damage Dealer in the game.

Attaque Composee [1/10] - Your main damage generator 2 hit pierce type skill without cooldwon perfectly replaces the normal attack. Strongly advise against raising it higher. Damage does not increase proportionally to the cost of SP.

Attaque Coquille [4/15] - 1 hit strike type skill that leaves a debuff, 8 seconds duration (must be on 4 lvl) which allows all pierce type attacks ignore opponent armor (no damage reduction from armor), skill have cooldown 8 seconds so you have 100% uptime here what is a huge burst especially at high levels.

Lunge [13/15] - 4 hit pierce type skill leaves a debuff, 4 second duration enemy becomes more vulnerable to slash attacks and 4 second buff that increases your evasion rate +130% for 4 second. Really nice to use this as often as possible. Nice damage factor with nice buff for you every 14 seconds.

Sept Etoiles [10/15] - Still one of the best skill what Fencer have. 7 hit hit pierce type skill. Multi hit work perfect with Concentrate and Restrain. Why not 13/15? The last 3 points in general, you can distribute as you wish. But 29 seconds cooldown it's too long for me.

Preparation [1/10] - Very nice buff which makes the next pierce attack deals double damage. Specifically skill, which means that if you use Sept Etoiles after Preparation all 7 hits deal double damage. Higher skill level increases only chance to block attack. So one point is enough.

Balestra Fente [5/5] - 1 hit pierce type skill, leaves debuff which reduces the resistance to critical damage by 30%. It has a long range and this is a skill allows you to achieve the damage cap in combination with Preparation and Serpentine (199k dmg). 28 second cooldown.

Flash (Fleche) [5/5] - 3 hits and 3 overheat pierce type skill. This is not the best our ability because we had much higher expectations of it. Nevertheless, it's still a very useful skill which gives us a total of 9 hits after unfortunately long 42 second cooldown. An additional problem is not breaking through opponents. What does it mean? Only the first line will receive damage and every enemy that is behind another no don't receive damage. Ability good mainly against the Boss.

Attque Au Fer [1/5] - 1 hit pierce type damage, pretty nice damage even if you spend only 1 point here. Another effect that works only against players. It's the ability to eject from the hands of enemy weapons for a while. He can still fight and use all abilities (even if he need a weapon), but until they pick up weapons don't receive bonuses from it (a similar effect is at 0 durability of weapons). Of course player picks up the weapon automatically after duration.

What about Esquive Toucher and Flanconnade? Both skills require a perfect timing so with the high ping is almost impossible. While the first skill in practice is useless so the second is the slash type skill so have poor synergies with our other buffs and deal weak damage anyway.

Statistics


Our main statistic is of course DEX. Reason is simple, we need as much evasion and crit chance. I strongly advise against going full DEX. This is suicide and considerable reduction of our character. Here are two suggestions about stat points.


*Not included extra points. I would recommend extra points added to the DEX after all.


The first option is my distribution points. It may not be perfect but those few extra STR points recommend especially in the beginning to break through the first four ranks. The second option focuses on late game. More crit chance and evasion. Certainly better way especially that STR has fatal damage scaling. The only advantage that gives STR is block penetration.
CON recommend a minimum spend 50 points or more. Especially because after level 280+ opponents hits look like collision with a truck or even train and even against physical attacks sometimes evasion doesn't help.

Equipment


Despite collisions with tanks and trains still recommend leather armor. If you are patient, I recommend for some time Cafrisun Set at least for a while. While the 170 level switch already to Roxona Leather "Set". After 220 level if you patient and lucky you should wear Virtov Leather Set at least 3 pieces. Why? Because from 40 level you obtain Rokas Leather Armor and this is one of the best armor what we can have. Until 220 level where at least Virtov is better. But what we should wear on 330 level you ask? Well i have one really nice armor here.
Set called Manahas and the result is a much stronger version of Cafrisun.


Each part separately does not give anything extraordinary. However, the set bonus is the main reason why I recommend this set to get.

2+ pieces - HP Recovery +240
3+ pieces - All Stats +6
4+ pieces - Additional Frost Attribute Damage +110 & STR, SPR +12

Each of the bonus is effective in our case. Additional Frost Attribute Damage which will scale with all of our elemental bonuses and other skills is beneficial for the growth of our damage after all. This type of bonus doesn't add to our base damage and is counted separately, so in practice we made two attacks simultaneously. What other basically deal only 110 damage, but receives all our property attacks and other bonuses. If you previously were using Cafrisun to understand why it is worth it to pay attention.

About other items, before we look for weapons, let's look on jewelry.
Necklace - At the moment there are only two worthy of anything. First is Max Petamion and second is Terrallion. And faster you earn first one.
Bracelet - You should wear Sissel Bracelet and Sissel Bracelet. Equally hard to get as Gladiator Bands but much better. At first 21 Physical Attack isn't equal to 15 STR even in half. And you need a lot Critical Rate. At the 330 level, minimum is 600+. Even this value is extremely difficult to obtain.
Hair Accesory - Since when Enchant Scroll can be purchased at the auction house is much easier to get exactly what you want.
Priority have physical attack because another 60+ pdmg is high bonus. Of course you should have Any property attack here too this is very value too! If by any chance on all accesory you get +1 AoE attack ratio it will be a salvation for you. Because +3 give you 7 AoE Attack ratio what allow you to hit 4 medium type monster at once. We must remember that the biggest Fencers problem is fight with multiple opponents at once.
Weapons - In order to not miss anything I introduce to you the reality of what we face.

1. Myth and Legend - Solmiki Rapier 2. Still beyond your reach - Lolopanther Rapier 3. Available - Venier

As you can see only on Venier is your choice. And this is still the very good one even on 330 level! All thanks to All Fencer skill +2 because it raises all our owned skills up two levels. Even if we have it at level 5/5 it means that there are now at 7/5. What particularly gives us a huge advantage at Epee Garde. Not only extends duration but also increase it by an additional 20%. For the moment I recommend at least upgrade to +7 or +10 and transcendence on the 1st or 2nd stage. Nobody said that the Fencer is a cheap class. Your second hand should hold a dagger. After all no matter what, because attribute Rapier Mastery: Aggression is very strong bonus for Fencer skills. There is not much talk about it. For the moment, only worth it's Karacha Dagger then at the 315 level you should get a new Lionhead Dagger. Which is basically a better version of the previous one.

Gems - Try a little to invest in them. Especially that kToS messed up again. If you are patient enough, you can even try to raise gems level to 10. But even 7 is already a very big bonus.
Top - Red Gems
Bottom - Red Gems
Gloves - Yellow Gems
Boots - Green Gems
Weapon - Green Gems
Off hand - Green Gems

Cards - Ok, now a little more about Card system. Now each card we can use in our Card slot and this is great mechanic after all. Remember that each new rank gives us additional space for cards.

Sadly but for Fencer only few cards are worth to obtain at now. At start I recommend above 5 - 10 lvl Ellaganos Cards which together will give you an additional 50 DEX. Another 3 card it depends on your luck. You can simply put an additional 3 Ellaganos Cards or use one or more suggested by me here:
- One 10 lvl Dullahan Card
- One or more 10 lvl Nuaele Card *Actually this give % bonus.
- One or more 10 lvl Glass Mole Card
- One or more 1 lvl Centaurus Card *Use it only to get an odd value AoE Attack Ratio. Despite the fact that the boss exist in the game, chance to get this card is almost impossible.
Of course, choice is yours. There are a lot of interesting cards. But the ones that I mentioned is the safest option when it comes to their benefits for our character.

What we can expect in future? Well, at the moment we can expect that rather not abandon Fencer class. If our suspicions prove to be true probably Rank 9 offer us a class Matador.

And as we know Matador avoid attacks and also use a rapier or spear, which will be a great for both the Dragoons and Fencers. We do not know what we can expect in the future, but for now let's enjoy what we have.

Your thoughts about changing Peltasta at R4 to Barbarian? I'll be honest here and say that i want the barbarian costume. What are the pros/cons here? Did you already try something like this?

Thanks in advance

With the new combat system changes (more specifficaly the DEX stat change), what to expect? Just sit and cry as fencers are forgotten into oblivion and every crit build just ceases do exist?

Thinking of doing your build as a first character, this build needs anything expensive?

The order should be
Swordsman C1 > Peltasta C1> Swordsman C2 > Swordsman C3 > Corsair C1 > Fencer C1 > Fencer C2 > Fencer C3?

Should i follow the second option of distribution of stats(i kinda think so)?

Why the fight about Full Dex and Dex/Con? I'm kinda of a newbie and only know the things friends taught me.

>Thinking of doing your build as a first character, this build needs anything expensive?
- Venier, prepeare a lot of time to farm materials or 10+ milion of silver. Every Fencer need this weapon.

>The order should be...
- The order IS like you said, Mentioned in description.

>Why the fight about Full Dex and Dex/Con?
- Because IMC still can't in balance and you don't always have top healer at your side.

>Also, how does the build work on dungeon and that stuff.
- I focus on killing bosses without depriving the other options. Check well on ET or Library. Linker your best friend here.

Hello mon amie.
I'm actually rank 3, around level 70 making a build alike.
So, a problem, i have around 100 DEX, and making full DEX. However you say for don't go full DEX. Should i put 50 STR and start again DEX, or like 4:1 STR/DEX?

@divine I don't understand why defensive class is such disliked when we talk about Fencer.
Ok that make sense when we look on Doppel or even Dragoon. But why you need Barbarian for Fencer? Cleave give you flat crit bonus only for 4 second and this is only one thing that could convince to choose this class. Personally, I am opposed to and strongly advise Barbarian C1 here.
A more reasonable is - Sword 3/Barb 2/Fencer 3 - because Warcry 5/5.
But actually more practical class is definitely Peltasta. And more comfortable is just massively pull enemies to slaughter. Whether if you are on 22, 76, 145, 220 or 330 level.

Nice build, thought about lvling same fencer, but loving my Sw1Pe1Ba2Co1Fe1 too much ;_; also knowing IMC who gonna know if we don't get boosts for low rank skills like murmillo ~
As corsair myself most satisfaction thing that jolly roger acts as 2nd aggro point for mobs, and dust devil disturb mobs for enough time to use 1 skill without getting hit (imo jolly lvl4 is enough with 16sec cooldown, pillage most of the time give only money)

@Lomarion This is why Dust Devil I propose 4/5 because you need this only to leveling and CC. Damage there later is weak as all Barbarian skills.
Well my main is SW1/Pelta/Barb3/Fencer3 and still work because Warcry 10/10.

@Suzushii
for some reason restrain in you build show only 40%chance*, same for concentrait without stat bonus description
also suggestion: write somewhere that taking peltasta on rank 2-3 easier to rank, and more helpful in parties
might confuse new players
Reply
Oct 24th 2016 00:53:46
@Lomarion Propably site problems. Well many skills are still untranslated so this doesn't in game anyone will see stronger version anyway.
And added advice to Peltasta. Sometimes I forget about obvious things.
