Sinned's Kali Skill Guide
 
*Damages are slightly off, they are based on a 297str (8%) curve unless stated
*Please tell me what I can elaborate on, all her skill seem so straightfoward that I feel like I'm missing something

So fourth guide for Lunia. At first I was like "I'll do it!", then "screw it, too lazy" and it kept going back and forth. Now I actually did it because some people want it and the only other way for them to get damage info is to level the characters up by themselves and then remember it or note it down somewhere. Formatted like my Ryan, Dacy and Yuki guide so get out if you hate my format. Look at other guides that are availible because I'm not a very big obsessive Kali fan therefore my results may differ from others.
Frankly speaking, I don't think I did the guide too well and there wasn't much point to it but people wanted it despite how straightfoward her skills are.

This guide is not to be reprinted, stolen, plagurized or any illegal business without permission or bribery.
No loopholes are to be exploited either.

Special Note
-When I say PVP,stage,etc. i mean Pure build excluding 8v8 because that will not give you level xp and people usually leave RB on. (Although with a pure PvP build you can still hold your own in staging, especially with Kali)
-REMEMBER- You are not limited to my recommendations. The point of having this is to help Kali players decide their build and getting skill info.
-Because Kali has a more linear curve in his skills (unlike the first 5-6 characters) I will not be putting the (65-) information that I did in my Dacy guide (kind of like my Yuki and Ryan Guide)
-This guide will seem longer because I have to include damages due to the fact that we have no skill simulator for Kali. Shoot me
-I will be using my Kali on kLunia test on most of the pictures because I didn't exactly start leveling the one on USA Lunia yet excluding from PvP.
-Almost all of Kali skills are cancellable in some shape or form therefore I will not state if possible, rather I will state if impossible (or seemingly)
-All attacks are curse types unless stated

Credits (because this is easier to do then other sections I did it early)
-Random people posting little tidbits of info on Kali
-IJJI - for being evil but released Kali (89coins >_>)
-Lunia - for wasting my precious time and money
-Guildies - Helping me decide a bit on skills
-Random people telling me I should make a Kali guide [you know who you are] =_=
-Lunar - Helping with various parts of the guide
-SeventhArrow - Helping with Concentrate information (epic fix)
-Gladiat - Fixing my title, thank youuu <3

.....I love copy and paste >_>.

Agony Skills
***Most people agree to max every Nonrebirth skill here so I'll need to add a little something to say otherwise
Lv1 Sound of Agony http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c1...iaK/5Notes.jpg
What it does - Shoots 5 notes foward
http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c1...kks/5notes.jpg
*All newly made Kali's start off with this skill
*Shoots 5 Notes
*Jumpiness may affect ability to hit target (Need confirm but from what I can see it does)
*7second cooldown

Lv1 - 9~10dmg x Hit
Lv11 (Max) - 226~251dmg x Hit

All Builds - Max (easy to combo with, awesome damage for low cooldown ,decent/far range and not that long to shoot all 5)
-People have argued to not max it due to its lack of area effected [most stagers].

Lv4 Dischord http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c1...niaK/Fnote.jpg
What it does - Create a zigzag line of notes
http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c1...ukks/FNote.jpg
*8shots
*Spreads more outward the longer it's used (I'd say from center to end of your screen)
*Casts slow on hit target
*Slow increases with level but duration remains constant of 10seconds
*15s Cooldown

Lv1 - 23~26dmg x Hit, 15% slow
Lv 11 (max) - 315~350dmg x Hit, 46% slow

All Builds - Max (Easy to combo with in PvP with slow, hits a large area in stages with high damage)
-Only reason to not Max is if you want to use a skill that doesn't do a majority of it's hits at close range.

Lv7 Duet of Rage http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c1...niaK/Pnote.jpg
What it does - Shoots 2 piercing dragging notes
http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c1...kks/PNotes.jpg
*Cannot be dash cancelled
*2shots
*Hits a large frontal area of user
*Hits vary on size and position (I've gotten 5 hits from a scarecrow at point blank)
*15s Cooldown

Lv1 = 16~18dmg x Hit
Lv10 (max)= 148~165dmg x Hit

All Builds - Max (Easy to combo with, very large area affecte)
-Honestly speaking, I find this as Kali's best line skill as it hits directly infront of her and airs anything possible. I can't find anything bad to say about it ><

Lv10 Rhapsody of Bloodhttp://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c1...niaK/Cnote.jpg
What it does - Create a circular motion of attacking notes
http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c1...ukks/CNote.jpg
*Stuns targets hit by it
*13 Shots
*Appears as a spreading outward clockwise attack
*Hits vary on size and position of target
*Activates Ancient Elf Hero 2set [included this because its pretty bizzare and cheap]

Lv1 = 33~36dmg x Hit
Lv10 = 233~259dmg x Hit

All Builds - Max (Comboability, stun, large range, damage)
-Main reason to not max is how most hits are in close range and doesn't do too much as it gets further.


Recovery Skills

*30 second cooldown

Lv1 = -71Hp +357MP
Lv11(max) = -239Hp +1194MP

All Builds - Any ( This really depends on your build, playestyle and how much MP recovery you'll use. Also it's recommended you not get a high level for PvP due to glitchiness)

PvP - 1,4,7,10,Max (Higher freeze = more time to damage, as well as its high damage for freeze. Also works ok as a spam guard as it absorbs projeciles.)
Stage - 1,Max (Can't freeze bosses so no use in using it for freeze on simple easy monsters, however damage is very nice. Lv1 for that psudobarrier helps too)
Hybrid - 1,Max (Keep it for its barrier-like uses as well as an easy 500 damage for 1 point)

would like to add on pvp 1 trans is useless
"use against mdef" is incorrect... it might be useful but there's another counter
sieg has a counter vs it prot fort, at 0hp ur screwed, the higher lvl u have the trans the more screwed u are,
u are UNABLE to knock him down ur hardknockdown is not a knockdown thus does not knock the sieg down, he is unable to die.. gg SIEGS OP bb

only char it's useful against are slow chars without walls,
it's useful against an eir as she has nothing to do dmg against u besides tears,
not sure about krieg
against another kali is suicide,
dainns have icewall
tia's have hide
dacys have dolls she doesn't even need to attk u, and invinci through until wari hits u
lime is lime..


succubus is not a small aoe effect, it's as large as sunlight heal

lullaby-the circle is the first and last hit, that's how sleep hits everything in it
inbetween those hits, there is around 3-4 casted in front and 2 casted in back something like that
the sides are open like yuki's icerain showers after the initial hit or two

succubus is not a small aoe effect, it's as large as sunlight heal

i was thining about putting 0 but then i changed my mind a bit after i put it but i'll add it in a bit
shouldnt hardknockdown be able to knock a sieg using prot fort down o_o?
the large range is still good imo but i'll add in 0

i thought succubus was smaller when it exploded, sunlight is huge ._.

JustinBieber 07-23-2009 11:06 PM

Finally. @_@

+rep, noob. ):

hardknockdowns do not make sieg fall down
only normal knock down
ie dfist does not kill a sieg in prot fort
hkd only is when the opponent gets pulled straight down i believe, if they fly back it'll kill the sieg

succubus if u need me to show u i know the max distance of it, and it is pretty far it just doesn't freeze max distance, the damage is done (opposite to dainn's bcb)

paraesmic 07-24-2009 04:12 AM

Nice, but I still don't like kali :O

+rep because I love your guides :3

Edit: I'll rep asap ._. atm I can't lol

isn't hardknockdown forcing something to be knocked down but also pushes them? anyway i'll check that out one day `-`

and i tried succubus but i did it on 2 crows where one crow was a bit out of krieg striking range but sunlight is still pretty big, further correction added anyway

paraesmic 07-25-2009 06:12 AM

IMO you should add something also about S effect like if it increase with level and images... maybe there's someone that don't know it o.o <(that' hard lol )

thank youuuuuu, misleading title bad ._.

Lunar 08-29-2009 05:10 PM

btw.. u should update sos
it's been modified
it no longer absorbs attks.. healing doesn't get attracted to it nor does it absorb ryan's bullets in pvp
however,
if u cast it in stage it will act as a voke and steal agro for like 1-2 secs and then the mobs will lose agro and wander, works on boss too
the agro effect stays until u see the ice explosion.. casting it on a boss will usually make the boss aim the other side on its next attk

imported_john 09-07-2009 01:08 AM
