1: Eve: Another Code

1.1 Who is Eve?

In the land of Elrios, there was a kingdom that excelled in all areas of technology, called Nasod. They were a powerful nation and caused no threat to the humans. However, with the El Stone's power gradually weakening, the nation of Nasod soon lost power, others turning corrupt. To prevent this catastrophe, Eve, the Queen of Nasod, went into a hibernating device to keep herself alive. Years passed, and Eve woke up as soon as the El Stone fragments entered her preservation unit, recovering her from her deep sleep. Unfortunately, the survivors of Nasod all turned corrupt, others destroyed by Elsword, with the humans trying to fight back.

Still, Eve had not given up hope on the revival of her kingdom. In order to regain her strength, she decided the best choice was to embark on the road with Elsword and his gang. After years of slumber, for the first time a boy saying that they wanted to be her friend truly touched her heart.

Eve may not look tough like the others, but she uses her powers of machinery to take down enemy forces for her. Since Eve is the Queen of Nasod, she can summon robots from her Kingdom to aid her in her battle whenever she wishes. Eve also uses Nasod Gears that can transform into all sorts of weapons to defend herself in battle, ranging from spears to explosives.

1.2 Basic Attacks and Sequences

You must first know that Z and X are the basic keys for every character. For Eve, Z is the sequence for the bashing of her Nasod gears. Using X will have EVe summon "electronballs", slow, but powerful balls of electricity.

1.3 Another Code's Skills

What are Skills? Skills are attacks that enhance your character's game play. For Eve, she uses many skills involving the summoning of Nasod robots at her command, and in the future, commanding two strong and highly loyal robots that stay by Eve's side.

Note there are different types of skills: Active, Special Active, Passive, and Buff skills.

Active - Skills that happen immediately unless canceled by a hit. Active skills are added to the quick slots.

Special Active - Skills that are just like Actives, but the game of Elsword adds the extreme epic to these kinds of skills. The character performs a special skill that will shortly freeze the area. During this, a cut in art of the character slides in while he/she shouts out the skill names. Then, the skill is performed. Very fun.

Passive - Skills that upgrade the character, permanently. Passive skills are never added to quick slots.

Buffs - Buffs are skills that upgrade the character, such as physical attack, magic attack, and defense. They are like passives, however, they are not permanent as they are used in the quick slots. Because they are used in the quick slots, they provide more efficiency to the power up, however they cost MP and are timed.

Now, please remember the following terms:

PvE - Stands for "Player vs Environment," the environment meaning monsters in dungeon areas. This term is used for mainly if you are to dungeon a lot. If you like to do lots of dungeon rather than PvP, then you are a PvE build.

PvP - Stands for "Player vs Player." This term is obvious, but just in case, this term is used for mainly if you prefer to fight other players more often than do dungeons.

Hybrid - This term is a combination of both PvE and PvP.

It will be stated the number of SP that must be invested required to access the next row. I will be sequentially stating each skill by where it is in the row. As for skill recommendations, I'll be stating how many points you should invest into skills by dividing into builds. It is RECOMMENDED, not a must (well, except a few). However, there will be times when you have the choice to pick what skills to put points in, because of the SP investment limit.

If you are having trouble memorizing your path of skill investment, fear not. There is a Skill Simulator for all characters. Click the following link to head to Eve's CE and CN skill tree.

Skill Simulator CE/CN

All right, let's start!

(0) Row 1:

Basic Magic Defense Training - Increase magical defense.
One rule to skill build trees is to never skip your passives unless necessary. Follow this rule unless I say not to. Here, follow the rule.
PvE - 5/5
PvP - 5/5
Hybrid - 5/5

Illusion Strike - Summon 8 gears to simultaneously strike.
Decent starter skill. But leave this at Lv1. This is a very weak skill and not worth your time leveling.
PvE - 1/5
PvP - 1/5
Hybrid - 1/5

Cloaking - Turn invisible for a period of time.
This skill is great depending how you use it. It has very little use in dungeons whatsoever, so there's no point in having it with you during dungeon runs. In PvP, however, this skill will allow you to sneak up on players. Though against experienced players, it is possible that they can see you--through checking the outlines, shadow, weapon glowing, etc. Another use for this skill is that as Eve casts the cloaking, you will be under super armor status for the time, allowing you to counter back if the enemy gets close to you.
Skill Note: Waiting Alone - Gives 10 MP per second regeneration while in Cloaking, but increases the cool down to 10 seconds. -Obtained from a rare monster drop.
A somewhat useful note, but not really worth it unless you are an experienced user of Cloaking. It only proves its worth in PvP.
PvE - 1/1
PvP - 1/1
Hybrid - 1/1

(5) Row 2:

Basic Physical Defense Training - Increase physical defense.
Follow the rule: don't skip this passive. It may not seem like much, but these little points actually do a lot.
PvE - 5/5
PvP - 5/5
Hybrid - 5/5

Dimension Link - Summon a Nasod scout by your side.
One of Eve's fun summoning skills. You summon a Nasod scout monster and it will attack enemies on its sight, even stun them. In dungeons, this has very little use. However, in PvP, it is good to have. Basically, while you're in a combo, Nasod scout will be with you (if you summoned before you are comboed). It will either stun the opponent with its attacks, or get combo'ed with you and when it's destroyed, it explodes and stops your opponent! Nasod Scout at Lv5 will deal some small bits of damage that will help in the long run, and will last longer so they can intercept the opponent from afar or explode if they get caught in a combo too. Optional to have, not recommended unless you know how to use this skill well.
Skill Note: Continuous Summoned Attacks - The Nasod Scout no longer knocks down when summoned and its attacks will have less knock-down ratio, cool down is increased by 5 seconds. -Obtained from Toma in Bethma.
Experienced PvP players who use Dimension Link will like this note. You can add it in between your combo, so that as you continue comboing, your Nasod Scout will add its own damage and not affect your knockdown rate very much. Don't worry about the cooldown increase, you shouldn't be summoning the scout too much.
PvE - 0/5
PvP - 0/5 or 5/5
Hybrid - 0/5 or 5/5

(10) Row 3:

Basic Magic Training - Increase magic attack. Prerequisite: Basic Magic Defense Training
What's the rule again? That's right! Don't skip this passive.
PvE - 5/5
PvP - 5/5
Hybrid - 5/5

Illusion Stinger - Transform gears into a powerful spear, leaving a trail of electron pulses.
Very powerful skill. This is one of Eve's best skills for her low level. It's very effective on large enemies, which includes most mini-bosses and some bosses, due to all hits hitting them. It is also great on mobs. However, it is bad against small, human-sized enemies like Raven in 4-1 or Chloe in 5-2, so don't depend on it too often. A must have at all costs.
Skill Note: Modified Chaos Engine - Reduces MP consumption by 20 and reduces range of the explosions by 20%. -Obtained from a rare monster drop.
This will allow you to use Illusion Stinger at an earlier time, plus, this will shorten your worry for small-sized opponents, as you will be able to deal more hits.
PvE - 5/5
PvP - 5/5
Hybrid - 5/5

(15) Row 4:

Aura Magic Accelerator - Increase the magical attack of allies in range and yourself.
A useful buff that I recommend that you should try to max. Mainly, Code Exotic/Nemesis main arsenal attacks are magic damage, so this is a useful buff, Additionally, as Code Exotic, you'll obtain a passive that increases the length of buffs, and as Code Nemesis, you'll gain a passive that will increase critical rate chance and damage.
PvE - 0/5 ~ 5/5
PvP - 0/5 ~ 5/5
Hybrid - 0/5 ~ 5/5

Basic Strength Training - Increase physical attack damage. Prerequisite: Basic Physical Defense Training
The rule know.
PvE - 5/5
PvP - 5/5
Hybrid - 5/5

Dimension Link Blader - Summon a Nasod Blader to slash enemies several times, then fire a beam. Prerequisite : Mastered Dimension Link
Another summoning skill. Nasod Blader (think the 2nd boss of Cargo Airship) comes and does a combo of slashes, and finishes off with the laser. Cool, but mediocre damage. Not recommended to take at all unless you just want to have fun with it.
PvE - 0/5
PvP - 0/5
Hybrid - 0/5

(20) Row 5:

Aura Shield Accelerator - Increase the defense of allies in range and yourself.
Not really a must have buff. Defense boost is meh. Unless you can fund yourself with very good armor to further increase your reduced damage, you have the option to skip this buff.
PvE - 0/5 ~ 5/5
PvP - 0/5 ~ 5/5
Hybrid - 0/5 ~ 5/5

(25) Row 6:

Aura Power Accelerator - Increase physical attack power of allies in range and yourself.
A buff you can consider taking. However, you will not use physical attacks often as much as magical attacks, so if you like partying or doing team PvP with physical-based players (such as Lord Knight, Wind Sneaker, etc.), you have the option to take this skill.
PvE - 0/5 ~ 5/5
PvP - 0/5 ~ 5/5
Hybrid - 0/5 ~ 5/5

Cloaking Study - Increase the amount of time Cloaking is activated.
More time to be invisible is nice. At max Lv3, it's just an increase of 1.5 seconds, totaling your invisibility time to 4.5 seconds. Useful for experienced users of Cloaking. Don't bother if you aren't going to PvP often or use it well.
PvE - 0/3
PvP - 0/3 or 3/3
Hybrid - 0/3 or 3/3

(30) Row 7:

Generate Blackhole - Generate a black hole to pull enemies in, then trigger it to explode dealing extreme magic damage.
I like this skill, because it is like Rena's Wind Wall, except it's shorter in duration but much stronger absorb effect. It sucks in almost everything that it can catch in range. PvP users can have team mates deal quick damage as the black hole is open, or you can catch running players if you use it at the right time. As for dungeons, well, as said before, you gather mobs. Not only that, in awakening, enemies stuck in the black hole will become repeatedly damaged before the explosion. This drastically decreases the explosion damage but if you can do all hits, it'll do more than the normal version. Other than damage, you can do some fun glitches with this skill. I highly recommend this skill for beginners, it's simple and does some great damage for its single or multiple hits.
Skill Note: Black Hole Ver. 4.0 - Increases suction range of the black hole by 30% and increases the damage by 10%. -Obtained from a rare monster drop.
This skill note further increases GBh's power and potential. I absolutely love this skill and took the skill note, and found the suction range increase to be very significant. The additional damage is very nice too. A recommended take if you don't have any other skill notes to use.
PvE - 0/5 or 5/5
PvP - 0/5 or 5/5
Hybrid - 0/5 or 5/5

Dimension Link Guardian - Summon Guardian to fire waves in both directions, dealing continuous hits of magic damage.
A powerful, fast damaging skill. It will hit for a somewhat long distance in both ways. Just like Illusion Stinger, it's mediocre on small enemies, but it can clear mobs, and it is especially great on wide-sized bosses. It will have its best use in dungeons, don't bother using it in PvP. It can be easily avoidable with platforms.
PvE - 0/5 or 5/5
PvP - 0/5
Hybrid - 0/5 or 5/5

(35) Row 8:

Mana Conversion - Convert some HP into MP.
A useful skill, especially for Code Exotic/Nemesis. At times you may be in need of quick MP for a certain skill, you will have this to use. Be careful though, it will deplete your HP fast if you use it too much. A recommended take if you have the spare skill points.
Skill Note: Bogus Contract - 30% Chance of not taking up HP when skill is used, but increases cooldown to 8 seconds. -Obtained from Camilla, the PvP NPC.
Adds a chance to not take up your HP, which is really good. If you love using this skill, feel free to take the note.
PvE - 0/3 or 3/3
PvP - 0/3 or 3/3
Hybrid - 0/3 or 3/3


And that's all of Eve's beginner job skills. When you've reached Level 15, you can begin the job advancement pre-quest:

1. Clear 2-4 twice on any difficulty.
2. Collect 1 drop from Kira-Kira (Mini-boss) at 2-1 on Very Hard mode.
3. Clear 2-2 on Hard mode or higher (☆☆+) with at least a B rank.
4. Speak to Echo, the alchemist of Elder.

And after that, you have two quests to choose from: Code Exotic and Code Architecture. Obviously, you should have chosen Code Exotic.

1. Collect 4 drops from the Bats on 2-2 at any difficulty.

2. Collect 1 drop from Wally No.8 (Boss) at 2-5 on any difficulty. Collect 2 drops from Banthus (Boss) at 2-3 on any difficulty.

3. Collect 1 drop from the Little Soldiers at 2-3 on any difficulty. Collect 20 Metal Shards from dismantling weapons.

4. Clear 2-5 on Very Hard mode within 15 minutes.

After you have finished, you are now Code Exotic, the code that transforms Eve into the Mistress of Destruction!
