Newbie Guide: Viking Class

A Viking Guide:

For a class D merc Viking is one of the indispensible melee type in the early and mid level. This merc is not as tough as a swordsman but they are a decent tank and have the ability to splash damage with their normal attacks. However, one of the keystone ability is the magical attack of Freezing Axe, Which disabled 3 mercenaries in a row of your opponent. This makes the Viking a very good choice for the party in early games. On the other hand, his magic defense is very low caused him to be an outclassed compare to other mercenaries. In early game, Viking is one of the merc that can be killed fast using magic skills. But in the early-to-mid game is good to most any build.

Base stats:


Strength-330
Dexterity- 110
Defense- 280
Intelligence- 140
Vitality- 310
Magic Defense- -50

Skills:

Basic Attack: Strike 3 enemies in the same row on the front.
Freezing axe: Freeze the enemy for some time with the blast of ice coming from the axe. Freezing axe effect also amplifies the skill damage for it gives –mdef to the mercenaries that was casted with this skill. So it’s the best thing to cast freezing axe on the row before you make a normal attack.
Deadly Strike: This skill can describe as the desperation strike while on the verge of death. The attack puts a strain on your action power and delaying your next turn. Usually this skill used on the late game, giving much higher damage than the normal attack.

Upgrades:

Viking Fighter (lvl 20+) - Ashen Crystal x50
Viking Warrior (lvl 50+) - Ashen Crystal x100
Bluetooth (lvl 80+) - Ashen Jewel x20
Bluetooth Hero I (lvl 100+) – Ashen Jewel x 50
-Legendary Viking Spirit Stone x1 (quest requirement for Northern Viking)
Bluetooth Hero I I (lvl 120+) – Ashen Jewel x 50


When your Viking reaches level 100 there’s another upgrade to make the Viking to Northern Viking to make it a Class C merc. You can’t have this if you don’t have a level 100 viking. To change your viking class into N.V. You will need a Viking Spirit Stone that you can get the quest from Freydis, a female Viking who once worked to with Erik and Leif. She was located near the Frozen of Adlivun.
One of the important things you wanted to know is the story of a Legendary Viking Warrior

Well… I’ll be hindering things for now to boost up your curiosity. And will post the Northern Viking quest guide on the next day.. :py44:

It's also the best thing to cast Freezing Axe after you break through a row, stunning a row of 3 at the back, while leaving 1-2 enemies left to attack you. This also applies to N.Vik's Ice Ridge.

Dook 02-16-2010 12:32 AM

In the questline, there's a boss that has become a roadblock for many people hoping to obtain the N.Vik. That boss is the Servant Leader.

Here are some things (that I can remember) about him:

Servant Leader is a cannon boss. The mobs in Servant Leader's Party have increased physical defence (not sure about magic defence).

I can't really remember his formation, but I think he has other cannons with him, and chimeras that can cast Smoke Bomb and Seth's Will. The Chimeras that can cast Seth's Will is in the midline. (Also note that this formation may have been changed)

-------

Some suggestions that could be useful to defeat the dreaded Servant Leader boss in the Northern Viking questline:

>Perk up your main with +VIT rings, especially if he/she is not a Melee. Upgrade as many of your mercs to Grade 5 (lvl100 upgrade). Avoid fighting him if your main isn't over lvl100 (very rare anyway). I've also put +VIT rings on tanks and witch.

>Useful crolls to bring: Dispel, Awakening, Resurrection, Life's Blessing, Judgment/Freezing/Meteor Strike. I placed Awakening and Dispel on my tanks (Swordie and LK). My witch had all scrolls. Keep in mind the 3 scroll limit.

>The witch. She cannot get hit by Servant Leader or his helpers physically. Assuming you've geared her right, she should also have plenty of magic defence. Put witch in between main and monk to decrease the chances of both getting hit by Servant Leader's attack. Put judgment/freezing scrolls on witch. In my experience in losing against Servant Leader several times, the witch is always the last merc to die. (Unless the main dies beforehand of course.) Also try not to cast Meteor Strike; instead get her to use AoE scrolls.

>Focus fire as much as possible onto a single mob on his frontline, so that you can quickly freeze his midline to prevent the chimeras from casting Seth's Will on Servant Leader. If he is sethed, dispel him ASAP using a dispel scroll.

>If you're a cannon main, finish your lvl100 upgrade quest if you haven't done so, and level up Devastation Shell to lvl60. This will decrease his combo rate (which will help A LOT) as well as decreasing his party's defence, which will help in poking a hole in the frontline.

>If you're a rich son of a b If you're fortunate enough to have an upgraded Spartan at your disposal, bring him and War Cry Servant Leader. A level 1 War Cry is as good as a lvl60 Devastation Shell when it comes to reducing combo rate. A level 20 War Cry would be helpful enough. If you have a level 60 War Cry at this point then I hate you very much.

If all his mobs are dead you've pretty much got the fight pretty much under control. At this point, often only your tanks, witch and your main are left standing. Be cautious since you're main is much more likely to be targeted.

That's all I can think of for now, feel free to add anything.

Javier 02-16-2010 12:42 AM

That's pretty much a wall of good advice Dook has provided. Here's what I can add:

- Place the main in the backrow, with a witch beside him (if you have one). This way the chances of you getting hit drop to 2/9.

- Always guard your main.

- Beer up, if possible-- i.e., turn that blessing potion on.

- Scroll strategically ASAP- if you can get two or three judgement/freezings off really quick, the minions will die off fast. You want to be fighting only Servant as quickly as possible.

A boss fight that normally takes people 3+ tries to win, took me only one try for me because of this. Although, I did it with lv46 D. Shell, iirc. If you have a spartan with leveled War Cry, use that to drop Servant Leader's combo rate.

Shirakani 02-16-2010 05:57 PM

Tho someone needs to poast the BEST AND MOST ESSENTIAL SKILL for an Axe main to learn once they hit 100.

It's called: B>Vial of Amnesia.

This skill is extremely difficult to learn and even harder to master, but once you succeed, you will gain the benefits of NOT having to play a shitty main that's vastly overshadowed by not one, but TWO mercs now (NVik and Druid).

Just tossing this out there in case someone asks 'why bother with viking merc and why not just roll axe main?' instead.

@Dook

The chance for a brand new lvl100, even a major cash user, to have lvl60 war cry at lvl100 is pretty slim.
