2II. What is Meister?

http://i495.photobucket.com/albums/r...iii/engmei.jpg

Meister, promoted from Engineer at level 80 is a new class that came to Latale during 2009. It is one of the most powerful melee class and one of the best class in PVP. It is similar to Bladers, it uses basic and hard attack to create combos to unleash attacks on enemies, with the assist of 4 powerful skills. Meister uses MG (robots) as the main weapon and cannot use tool boxes from engineers. Apart from turrets and some misc skills, Meister are very different to Engineers. Meisters have 2 main stats to focus on, one is strength (for pure normal damage output) while the other one is luck (for pure critical rate). It is up to player's personal preference to choose one over the other. Same as all other classes, the stats Strength adds damage, HP (known as Stamina) adds HP and defence, MP ( known as Magic) adds SP, and Luck adds Critical rate and Ely drop from Monsters.

Meister in PVP
Meister are very powerful in pvp compare to other classes. Their skills have fast attackspeed, especially Mistertein, Summons a MG Mech that attacks enemy with 2 strong hits. Other skills such as Gailborg and Raikiri is also very powerful (see skills section for more information). However powerful they are, Meister skills have a long cool down, in one game of pvp, can be only used a few times so it must be used effectively. Meister's basic attacks has a slow start but with continuous combos, it'll develop into high output and powerful attacks. Meister also have high accuracy due to their masteries, therefore it rarely misses the opponent unless they have high evasion. Meister's damage is also powerful, like bladers, will do ~1k normal damage but less attack speed compared. With the help of turrets, such as push and fire, weakening opponents and making Meister event powerful in pvp. With Valkyrie MG weapon, the fast attack speed, will make opponent unsusceptible to attack. The bottom line is, Meister is in my opinion the most powerful class in pvp and if you're interested in playing PVP more than leveling, this class is great for you.

Pros:
  • Good damage output from skills and basic attacks
  • Turrets for debuff and buffing
  • Excel both in Long range and short range.
  • Flashy skills and attacks
  • Distinctive in the crowd
  • Excellent in pvp
  • High HP
Cons:
  • Have large skill cool down
  • Low defense
  • Only one attacking skill tree
  • Not the best tank

Places a turret that shoots flames at nearby enemies.

Comment: Fire turrets in my opinion are not as useful for Mei as for Engineer. For one, it wastes too much SP (Skill Points) and it's damage are not high enough to be effect against enemies. Best effective when boss hunting.

Very nice guide im wait for a build =D

Snow 09-22-2009 10:21 AM

Good job kay :3
+ rep!

Deadeye87 09-23-2009 03:57 AM

Bandwith exceeded!

If I ever get bored of TH, I might try Meister in the future.

BTW, is it possible to combo MG control series? I saw how Novice can be activated with SSS and others start with WWS, so will something like WWWWSSS cause expert then novice to activate?

DarkSpear 09-23-2009 06:51 AM

Your Valkyrie MG is so sexy @_@;;.

Anyway, Nice guide there, im really tempted to make an engineer, i have a lvl 26 sitting in my acc D;, meisters look promising in fact x.x.

Hmm, i'm not too sure what they meant by SSS to be honest, i think it was referring to the charge attack, which have to hold the hard attack key which takes 3 times the time taken of a normal attack to activate. Such as the valk mg, when you finish with the MG Control Expert combo, WWWWS, you can immediately activate the charge attack, which is known as the MG control novice, so it'll be come WWWWS + SSS in total? However, every move begins with Weak i believe. Hope i didn't loose you there. xD

Will update once i catchup with uni work. :py57:

Moar 10-12-2009 04:06 PM

Nice guide! Are you planning on adding a skill build section? I'm wondering whether to go the power or crit route.

I think power route is better

Personally I'm a hybrid, with points in both trees.
My damage is so well over other meisters in pure power tree that I don't have to worry about going pure.

My recommendation is if your equips are well beyond above average, spend 20 of your points on the HP Passive and follow through the power tree

Moar 10-14-2009 09:54 AM

hmmmm well my equip is below average so i guess its power tree for me XD

do you guys mainly pool your stats into str or luk and vit or eva?

I equalized my stats, with str being a little higher than others... its pretty hard to dominate in a single stat as a meister

the key to damage is the +% equips

for example right now im using the 130 meister set with 62% crit gloves, knight mg with 48% min 48% max dmg , dmg % ring (eldergain) , god of shopping title (+15% crit) , gabe set (+25% crit) and gumiho (+22% crit ) and a 15% crit bonus from the full set

also i recommend buying/farming a pair of captain bong glasses :py54:

So whats the best equipement to get right at class change to meister? is it worth it to get the class armor or should I stick with sphinx? also, about how much does it cost to set skills after class change? so I know to save up.

meseta 10-26-2009 01:27 PM

If you have enough ely to purchase the level 80 class armor then you could buy it, they upgrade every 10 levels until you hit 120ish. Otherwise it would be good to use normal armor and save up for the level 130 class armor, since they are more important. and when you class change, the skill reset is completely free.

XFallenX 12-14-2009 02:29 PM

-Waiting For The Skill Section- =w=

LilPhenyl 12-22-2009 10:15 PM

A MISC skill thing would be nice. :< Other than that, this is good.

Johnnywup 12-23-2009 10:31 PM

Yeah, just when I needed it. Just advanced to meister :3
Skill build from the 80 original:
max all 3 MG controls, and all masterys, then 1 ash cannon, then max potential energy, max power surge, max focus, and do as much as you can in power upgrade. at 82, put another in power upgrade, at 85, level 2 ash cannon, at level 86, max power upgrade. all I've got so far.
