From lv1 to 5 , u can train your character at North and South Windia Plains filed and Misson maps
[ For world maps , press M button and you Ďll see , For minimaps press N button ]
Donít forget to do Quest , Quest marked as a yellow ! on minimaps . Hero Quest marked as a red ! and Daily Quest is a blue ! one
Thief skill at lvl 5 I recommended for you : 1 Air combo launch , 2 Double Attack , 1 Aerial Frenzy and 2 Cutdown
As a thief , you can do a combo like this :
Step 1 : hit monster till you do a upper cut : [ press x 4 time ]
http://i93.photobucket.com/albums/l7...quan/Step1.jpg
Step 2 :Air combo Launch , now ! [ upward + X or just press your Air combo launch hot key ]
http://i93.photobucket.com/albums/l7...quan/Step2.jpg
Step 3 : quickly jump forward a little and use Aerial Frenzy [ c + forward + tapping X ] http://i93.photobucket.com/albums/l7...quan/Step4.jpg
Step 4 : when the monster lie on the floor , use Cut Down to re-launch them [ Downward + x or use your Cut Down hot key ]
http://i93.photobucket.com/albums/l7...quan/Step5.jpg
Step 5 : Jump and Aerial Frenzy to finish the combo !
http://i93.photobucket.com/albums/l7...quan/Step6.jpg
From lv5 to 10 u can train at Windia Flats field and Mission map
Skill recommended at lv 10 : : 3 Air combo launch , 3 Cutdown , 4 Aerial Frenzy , 3 Double Attack
From lv10 to lv 15 : West Traitor's Ridge field and Mission Map
Skill recommended at lvl 15 : 5 Air Combo launch , 5 cutdown , 5 aerial frenzy , 4 double attack
From lv15 to 20 : East Traitor's Ridge field and Mission Map
Skill recommended at lv19 : 5 Air Combo launch/Cutdown/Aerial Frenzy/Double attack and 5 rocket punch
Pop up Question : Hey hey , why lv19 ??
Answer : Because when you open a gift box at lvl 15 , you get a skill reset scroll . Itís allow you to reset skill from lv 1 to lv 19 , so I highly recommended you to use it now
Skill recommended after reset at lv 19 : 3 Air combo launch , 3 Cut down , 5 aerial Frenzy , 5 Rocket Punch , 1 Double Attack
Well ... u can change job Jester at lvl 20
Here is the Quest :
First , meet Cyndi at Port Of the Wind
http://i93.photobucket.com/albums/l7...quan/Cyndi.jpg
She will tell you get 20 jester scroll at Bearded Whale Coast , Go get them
http://i93.photobucket.com/albums/l7...quan/Coast.jpg
Once you get all the scroll , she will give you the next mission : Defeat Captain White Tooth at Bearded Whale Coast Mission map [2 Star Ė F2 ]
http://i93.photobucket.com/albums/l7...WhiteTooth.jpg
One stage left to Jester , this time Cyndi will tell you to defeat White Tooth again but now is 4 Star Ė F4
For 1st job , itís quite touch for you to handle , but donít worry . You should go in with a party or you can do this : You still have a megaphone right ? Take a deep breath and use it : Can someone help me change job please ?? And wait someone pm you to help !
If I heard you I will come for you right away !
Pop up question 3 : Why use a megaphone ? Can I pm you directly instead ?
Answer : Ooopps , I forgot , you can pm me with commands : /w EndlessD [words] For the case Iím not available at the moment , use the megaphone ok ?
When you completely Defeated White Tooth ,back to Cyndi and talk to her
You are a Jester now , wooooot
Thief FAQ :
Q : Where can I buy weapon for thief ? ,
A : You can buy at towns or get it in Mission Map
Q : What equip such as vest , boot , glove etc ?
A : Anything you can wear at the moment
Q : Why should I save a lv 1 claw ?
A : because you will need that claw latter for doing combos
Q : Why we only get 1 Double attack ?
A : Because as a Jester , you are not gonna tapping X much so double attack is Ö pretty useless now

III : A Jester
You will have a skill reset scroll as a reward , DO NOT USE IT NOW , I highly recommended you not to use it , save it for later , ok ?
Jester skill detail :
Jester & Harlequin Skill List (Updated) - Dragonica Official Forum

1 Burrow
Pop up question : Does Jester have combos ?
Answer : yes , it does have a very awesome and powerful combo :
Step 1 : Final Decision
http://i93.photobucket.com/albums/l7...2520445201.jpg
Step 2 : Immediately use Upper Screwdriver
http://i93.photobucket.com/albums/l7...2520445502.jpg
Step 3 : Aerial frenzy [ no need to jump , just tapping X ]
http://i93.photobucket.com/albums/l7...2520451805.jpg
Step 4 :Cut Down [ As above ]
Step 5 : Aerial Frenzy [ As above ]

Lv25 to lv 30 : Steven Trading Post Field / Mission Map
Pop up Question : Hey hey , I see people with shinny ball around them , what is that ??
Answer : the shinny ball appear when you equip a Full Set [ 6 Part : Vest , glove , boot , shoulder , legging , headgear ]
For Jester , is a Twink set
But I not recommended you to get a full set now , because :
Twink set give you bonus when you wear full set :
Normal Level 27 - Twink
2 Set Bonus: AGI + 11
4 Set Bonus: Critical Rate + 16%
6 Set Bonus: ATK Speed + 20%
When you wear 2 part , you get 11 bonus agi , that not much
When you wear 4 part , you get your critical rate + 16% , is not much , really , I will give you a formula for calculating critical ratio later
When you wear Full Twink set , you attack speed boost 20% , when you not gonna tapping x , itís useless in my opinion
So I recommended you for just wearing amour which have + agi , str instead of wasting time / money on getting full set

That is all the build of Harlequin I have, thanks for reading

VI : Battle
1 : Good skill [Should have]:
Harlequin have 2 stun skill : Rocket Punch and Provoke
Rocket Punch is a line-type skill
Provoke is a normal AoE Skill
Both a very handy skill in PvP and Emporia War
Harlequin have total 10 buffs skill , 4 passive and 6 active buffs
Stance is a good skill , itís add Physical Def and Atk
Claw Mastery passively increase Damage of Claw-type Weapon
Also known as Harlequin Weapon
Motion Capture is a passive skill buff for Mind Reading , max if you gonna max Mind Reading . Itís add evade rate and decrease incoming damage
The other buffs a status-increasing buffs . If you gonna focus on stats [ agi / str / vit ] then max it otherwise not because itís use much point
2 : Combo
The Harlequin combo : [ advanced from Jester combo ]
Step 1 : Final Decision
Step 2 : Immediately use Upper Screwdriver
Step 3 : Aerial frenzy [ no need to jump , just tapping X ]
Step 4 : Judge Dread
Step 5 :Cut Down
Step 6 : Aerial Frenzy
In pvp , you can use Final Decision , Rocket punch or Provoke to start combo [ stun the enemy first then charge in ]
You can also you Rocket punch and Provoke as a set-up for Cossack Dance , Windmill
3 : Evade/Counter/Movement Reading
Harlequin and Jester have pretty much skill for evading attack :
Exit , Moonwalk , Burrow , use them wisely
For line-type skill [such as Wolf Rush , Wraith Of Earth ] , you can Dash upward or downward quickly to evade them If your eyes / hand are fast enough .
Example : Wraith Of Earth have an animation last about 1s , this time is enough for you to dodge it
For normal AoE skill , just Dash or Jump-Dash to evade that Area
You should learn how to read your enemy movement , itís important
Example : If you see an enemy Dash-jump overhead you , you can :
[ sorry , I have no drawing skill ]
If you far from the enemy :
http://i93.photobucket.com/albums/l7...uan/Rocket.jpg
If you near the enemy :
http://i93.photobucket.com/albums/l7...itmapImage.jpg
Happy Pvp-ing

VII : Other Stuffs :
Critical rate calculation :
You Critical Rate : 10%
Bonus : 20%
Then your Critical Rate is 12%
Itís not add directly 10% to your Critical Rate !!!
Same goes as evade rate
