2II. What is Meister?



Meister, promoted from Engineer at level 80 is a new class that came to Latale during 2009. It is one of the most powerful melee class and one of the best class in PVP. It is similar to Bladers, it uses basic and hard attack to create combos to unleash attacks on enemies, with the assist of 4 powerful skills. Meister uses MG (robots) as the main weapon and cannot use tool boxes from engineers. Apart from turrets and some misc skills, Meister are very different to Engineers. Meisters have 2 main stats to focus on, one is strength (for pure normal damage output) while the other one is luck (for pure critical rate). It is up to player's personal preference to choose one over the other. Same as all other classes, the stats Strength adds damage, HP (known as Stamina) adds HP and defence, MP ( known as Magic) adds SP, and Luck adds Critical rate and Ely drop from Monsters.

Meister in PVP
Meister are very powerful in pvp compare to other classes. Their skills have fast attackspeed, especially Mistertein, Summons a MG Mech that attacks enemy with 2 strong hits. Other skills such as Gailborg and Raikiri is also very powerful (see skills section for more information). However powerful they are, Meister skills have a long cool down, in one game of pvp, can be only used a few times so it must be used effectively. Meister's basic attacks has a slow start but with continuous combos, it'll develop into high output and powerful attacks. Meister also have high accuracy due to their masteries, therefore it rarely misses the opponent unless they have high evasion. Meister's damage is also powerful, like bladers, will do ~1k normal damage but less attack speed compared. With the help of turrets, such as push and fire, weakening opponents and making Meister event powerful in pvp. With Valkyrie MG weapon, the fast attack speed, will make opponent unsusceptible to attack. The bottom line is, Meister is in my opinion the most powerful class in pvp and if you're interested in playing PVP more than leveling, this class is great for you.

Pros:
  • Good damage output from skills and basic attacks
  • Turrets for debuff and buffing
  • Excel both in Long range and short range.
  • Flashy skills and attacks
  • Distinctive in the crowd
  • Excellent in pvp
  • High HP
Cons:
  • Have large skill cool down
  • Low defense
  • Only one attacking skill tree
  • Not the best tank
