Default Beginner's Handbook to Ronan

Now, i would like to bring to your attention, I made this guide when Ronan came out, so don't "Oh i knew that already" me, I'll bite you.
Changes will be made, of course.

Beginner's Handbook to Ronan


First guide.......criticism can go die. =) (unless its constructive) Plagiarism will not be tolerated, even though most people already know whats stated in here without the help of guides.

II. Unlocking Ronan

-Forgotten City
-Gaikoz's Castle
III. Skill Chart
IV. PvP Tactics (to be finished eventually)
V. Conclusion

I Introduction


Hi, so it seems you want to learn how to use Ronan. Now, because I'm as noob as the next guy, it's pretty obvious you would want to look at someone else's guide, but what I'm teaching are probably the basics.

===============

II Unlocking Ronan



Before you are able to use Ronan, you must unlock him first.

Open up the shop and go to Academy. Here you will see 2 selections: Premium Ronan Mission or xx's Ronan Mission. (xx=character name)


If you select the Premium Ronan Mission you must pay 1 Crystal, which is easily obtained by hunting bosses, in order to finish the quest.

If you select the regular Ronan Mission, you must clear Forsaken Barrow 3 Star, Forgotten City 3 Star, and Gaikoz's Castle 3 Star. You cannot die at all in all three dungeons. You only need to clear them once as well.

Now, before you start the mission, hear me out. It is suggested that you do the quest at level 20+. When you're level 15, you're under-equiped, and most likely, you don't have enough knowledge about the game to actually fight these places without dying once. At level twenty, your characters receive access to Monk or Trooper Equipment, and you can do the second job. In addition to that, it is MUCH more easier to find a participating party then it is under you're below level 20. So keep this in mind, if you want Ronan early and you don't have friends to help you get him, then you'll be talking much longer than you would if you were level 20, unless you find generous people.


Forsaken Barrow

Boss - Lich

Lich spawns with two Zombie Orc Warriors, your priority is to take these out first. As a boss, Lich isn't hard to fight, being stable and can never fall. It deals a moderate amount of damage, compared to the Zombie Orc Warriors, which is why you want to take them out first.
If you plan to fight Lich, disregarding the Orc Warriors, you may be in a bit of trouble. If you're able to clear Orc Temple, at 3 star, with no deaths, and are barely scratched, you should be able to easily clear this dungeon. It's almost the same, but with the Orc Lord replaced with a Lich. Lich may also summon Zombie Orc Warriors (due to the "Monster Buff" patch many months ago)

Attacks
The Lich has three attacks, none which deal massive damage.
Attack 1: Staff Attack
Description: Lich raises its hand, and strikes with the staff.
Range: Small.
Notes: As said above, the range small. You can easily avoid this attack by simply dashing away, or jumping. This attack knocks you down.

Attack 2: Lightning Bolt
Description: This attack is similar to Arme's 2nd skill, Lightning Bolt, but only lasts a duration of maybe around 3 seconds. Lich raises its wand, sticks it out, and shoots a line of lightning. The scenery darkens.
Range: To the edge of the Map.
Notes: When Lich attacks with lightning bolt, there are several ways to be safe. One way, would to be directly infront of it. As it sticks out its staff, it doesn't deal damage. You can easily go and stand right infront of him, to avoid being attacked. Another way is to go behind it. The boss room has many platforms, allowing you to move around freely. The last way to to jump two platforms up, you'll be given enough time to do so as it attacks. When you counter yourself from this skill, you will not be knocked down. The damage is weak and constant.

Special Attack: Vines
Description: Lich withdraws its staff, the scenery turns purple, you hear the sound you would hear from "Jump Attack". A second after, should you not be on the ground, vines attach to you, and slowly drain your HP. You become paralyzed. This attack is similar to that of Treant's.
Range: Everywhere.
Notes: This attack is Lich's most annoying one. Though the damage is small, it's very constant, maybe around 4hp/s. That's not the reason why this attack is annoying. If you haven't killed the Zombie Orc Warriors when you entered, you should've. They constantly use "Jump" Attack, and because you're stuck to the ground, you're unable to avoid, and because all three of the monsters you fight have Jump attacks, if they all used it one after another, you're more likely to get caught. My suggestion is to take out the Zombie Orc Warriors as suggested before. By doing so, Lich becomes a breeze.


Forgotten City

Boss - Paradom

Paradom is a security cube. ;o Now, this boss is very simple once you get the hang of it. It attacks in certain directions, and remain hostile on both sides of the map. No monster's spawn with it, so this shouldn't be as time-consuming as Gaikoz or Forgotten City.

Attack 1: Laser Beams ;o
Description: Beams are angled, hits 6 times at most.
Range: To the edge of the map.
Notes: It fires in all four directions diagonally, then all for directions horizontally and vertically. There's about a 2 second time distance for Paradom to switch

First, it will do a diagonal shot, then a horizontal and vertical shot. To sum it, it shoots sort of like an X, then an Addition Sign +.

Danger attacks:
When it says danger, it will move either up or down. Most of the time it will move down. When he attacks, he attacks horizontally with a big blast. It does a surpising amount of damage so you may want to avoid it.
Rarely will happen but you never know: 5% of the time, instead of moving down, he will move up. Instead of shooting horizontally, he will shoot the gigantic beam directly down. Thus dealing enormous damage to those who are standing underneath him. Avoidable by dashing.

Gaikoz's Castle

Resort to Cujo's excellent Guide on How to beat Gaikoz.=)


After having completed all three maps, you can complete the quest and get Ronan. Congrats~!

===============

III Skill Chart



> - Right Directional Key
< - Left Directional Key
^ - Up directional Key
Z - Z on your keyboard. (I'm guessing 4 on a controller?)

Bolt: > >, <, Z OR < <, >, Z
5 Hit Combo: Z, Z, Z, Z, Z
Launcher:Z, Z, Z ^Z, Z
4-7 Hit Dash: When doing the 5 Hit Combo, press > instead of Z after the 2 combo.


MP Skills
<to be implemented cause i hate ronan's voice and hardly understand what he says...>

===============

IV. PvP Tactics

Lires
As Ronan, you possess the same Defence ability as Elesis. So if your facing the incoming arrows, theyll do less arrows. Try to avoid showing your back to Lire, or you will get damaged. A common way of getting close is Dash, Jump, and Dash while in Mid-Air. This makes it harder for them to hit you. As soon as you get close, you can do the Launcher or the 5 Hit Combo on them.

Armes
If an arme is using firebolts against you, then you will either jump and dash over them, or find another way to get to Arme. Not much less to say than get close and do the 5HC or the Launcher. Though you may want to stay somewhat above Arme. When an Arme uses Stone Curse, it takes time for you to get out, allowing them to escape and use the Lvl 1 White Magic skill.

Elesis
<Not good at fight elesis' lol...resort to someone's elses guide =)>

Ronan
<Same as Elesis...resort to someones elses guide...>


===============

V. Conclusion
This is somewhat basic general information which most people should know. So yeah...have fun...

I think Barrows and City only required you to complete *** without using natals or bonuses. Gaikoz was the only one where you couldn't die, though I could be mistaken. :z

I was told that they changed the Mission Scroll. ;P But I do know a couple of months ago, it did use to be "No natals/bonuses"

I'm checking it right now, and it's still the same as always.

Clear Gaikoz's Castle *** without dying.
Clear Forgotten City *** without using Natals/Bonus.
Clear Forsaken Barrows *** without using Natals/Bonus.
