I seem to be missing something here. Normally Wind Blade is a staple 100 MP for the Magic Knight branch, while Assault Slash is the staple 100 MP special for the Sword Knight branch. Why is there a debate on which to use?

Sword/Lord Knights don't have any problems with Assault Slash's close range because they normally have to be close anyway. Armor Break and their melee only combos require it. Assault Slash is probably the best 100 MP special for Lord/Sword Knights for reasons already stated.

Magic Knights and Rune Slayers can't use it as well as Sword/Lord Knights.

It's because I see many more Rune Slayers with Assault Slash instead of Wind Blade, and I can't think of a good reason why it would be better.

Really? I see plenty of Rune Slayers with Wind Blade. I can't say Assault Slash is better for Rune Slayers, but it still is a decent 100MP skill (multiple hits for MP payback and status procs, works well against Stoic enemies, fast and easy to link into).

Special actives cant proc

reason why many go assault slash is simply the damage is better

Assault with a skill note is something like 246% x 8 which is freaking high damage for a 100mp

Wind Blade with skill note is 1200% for 50mp which is super cheap and better % wise

The reasons why assault is used much more often tho is simply (comes out fast)
high hits (used for building gauge). high damage too. also I feel like windblade leaves you more room to getting hit.

+ assault is gotten during job 0 and you have plenty of SP to spare

windblade comes during job 1 which as you can already tell is a real terror
It also comes same time as you would get Fire fist which is one of RF's best skills

You'll probably be sp starved at that point and simply put assault is much more useful overall.

So isn't there a way to beat 2-X boss on Hell without super OP damage?

I already get that when he heals he puts up a shield against either physical or magic. The most damage I can deal is using Triple Geyser when he has the physical shield up, and it takes 2 HP bars away. But he goes back to full in the very next heal.

I can dodge and hit him pretty well already, but it pains me that I'm unable to kill him solely because of his healing.

Or maybe how to do more damage with Rune Slayer?

For bosses? Same as any other Elsword: build MP with jump combo or some other melee loop, then use special.

Actually, I'm finding that melee is important in this game, regardless of class.

The 100% refine scrolls seem incredibly overpriced compared to the already upgraded weapons. A +8 weapon with good stats sells for 70-100m, while the +8 scroll goes for 200m. What's up with that?

Depends on the type of weapon you did the +8 and the other enchants and stats in it(good stats and enchant means higher the price)

Doing a +8 in a lvl 56 purple weapon is a good enough investment till they release OP lvl 50+ sets

To put it simply, no if you're alone.

Every time he changes phase, he heals 2 bars approximately. This occurs once every 20-30 seconds if not frozen/ stopped/ petrified/ etc. If you (your team) is unable to push an average of 700k dmg/ min, it is going to be impossible.

His heals intensify (up to 4 bars) as hp draws to 25% (8 bars) and then stops completely when he rages, have fun!

But I've never seen a +8 weapon sell for more than 200m, not even purple/unique 46 weapons back when they were the strongest. The scrolls were already worth that much back then. I've even seen +10 46 purple for 300m+, while the +9 scroll is often 400m+.

In the end, the only way to get good stuff is to get lucky and make it yourself. Takes long to get the materials, maybe I should buy them. With luck, 140k per 52 sword forge.

Whenever I try to play Elsword JP, I get to the channel select, and when I select a channel my whole pc just freezes... (I exit the VPN proxy thingie after gameguard closes. . .)

Is this because of my crap PC or something? I can play other versions just fine though.

Any good way to deal with Renas that keep jumping and stomping your head?

You can't possibly be getting killed by stompstorming non-Combat Ranger Renas, are you? It knocks down and has no followup.

Does anyone else have a LOT of lag in the robot room before the boss in 2-X?
It seems to be caused by the robots' AI behaviour when I'm not in their sight (they keep jumping in the same spot in the far right), since it goes away when they all see me.

It's particularly bad in hell mode, and they just crashed my game.

AI system is one factor of lagging....

for me, it's because of my teammates spamming 300MP skills

Well, you would wish that those robots were jumping along the right wall actually. If they were jumping randomly across the map, sooner or later you would have 4-8 robots on you. Their (my) favorite combo would be the laser + homing missle by the other trick.

Either way, I think their AI is to gather MP when they have no target. So they can laser you the moment you enter their field of vision, hence the jumping up and down like a retard. Mobs, unlike players, gain MP faster by virtually doing anything compared to nothing.

Teammates spamming skills is a good thing... you do nothing while mp pots cd(s) continue running, giving more opportunities to spam skills and add to the delay.

Yeah, if it weren't for them staying on the right it'd be way harder. It's a pain but I just have to fight the first ones with immense lag. Still a pain that it crashed my game, though.
And they're not supposed to lag the game, there must be a glitch in their AI that hogs up the processor. Maybe that's their plan for idling.

These robots don't seem to have MP, they use skills fairly quickly. And you normally see the monsters' MP bar when they have one.
