v.104 – Legends Update Notes – Mercedes
New Content
New Class: Mercedes

Mercedes is the ruler of the elves, who have been asleep for hundreds of years. Along with Aran and Freud, she is one of the five heroes who sealed the Black Mage. Much like Aran, Mercedes and her people were cursed by the Black Mage before he was sealed, causing the elves to fall into a long sleep. Before succumbing to the curse, Mercedes sealed the elves' home of Elluel so that no one could enter while the curse still held sway.

During Mercedes' tutorial, you see a fully animated video of her, Freud, and Afrien attacking the Black Mage's stronghold, then you play through the ensuing events in the past. Upon awakening in the present, Mercedes find that she has weakened considerably and that the other elves are still sealed.

Mercedes can only be created by selecting the Mercedes option when creating a new character.
At creation, you can change Mercedes' gender and face.
Mercedes is Lv.10 with her 1st job already obtained by the time the required portion of her tutorial is complete.
Her 2nd job advancement can be made at Lv.30 through a quest.
After making the 2nd job advancement, she automatically makes job advancements at Lv.70 and Lv.120.
She gains 65 SP for her 1st job skills, so they all can be raised to their max level.
Mercedes can equip Bowman type equipment, and she uses a new type of weapon called dual bowguns.
She must have a dual bowgun equipped in order to perform most of her skills.
Dual bowguns use magic arrows as their ammunition. These magic arrows are not consumed when used. Lv.10, 30, 70, and 120 magic arrows can be purchased in Elluel.
Her primary stat is dexterity (DEX), and her secondary stat is strength (STR).
Dual bowguns that are of a higher level than the beginning one are only available at the merchant found in Elluel (up to Lv.25). They can also be obtained through smithing, monster drops, and from certain events.
Mercedes can get a unicorn mount starting at Lv.70 and can upgrade it starting at Lv.120.
Each Mercedes character has its own individual Cash Inventory not shared with other characters.

Paul 12-21-2011 11:49 AM

got mines to 99 yesterday, 107 now but i'm kinda tired of training. Spent 8 levels looking for a angelic recipe only to end up having it below average. D:

LiLMewmew 12-21-2011 03:06 PM

Mercedes is already out.

Lime 12-22-2011 08:25 AM

Apparently there's word going out that the romeo and juliet PQ is AMAZING exp for 100-120.

There's a map of roids in the PQ that if you just stop and grind there, you can get crazy levels easily. its preferred for 4 people iirc.

Wow... this one girl did 83-120 in 4 hours on 2x exp there... I'm REALLY going to look into this.

PKShota 12-22-2011 09:13 AM

How the hell do you guys get to such a high level so fast? (I should have seen this improved exp table sooner)

I'm only Lv31 qq

Queen 12-22-2011 09:32 AM

37 and going on my Mercedes c: And she's the most presh thang I ever did seeeee

LiLMewmew 12-22-2011 02:42 PM

lol. yesterday, I grinded from level 10 to level 90 on Mercedes. (in one day) :py16:

First job feels like an assassin
- You can kinda jump backwards and fire off the volley of shots.

Second job feels like a mechanic.
- The dash and uppercut technique.

Third job feels more like a dual blade.
- You jump and attack combo or dash and uppercut technique.

Tardar 12-22-2011 06:39 PM

I'm 131 already. It gets even better in fourth job as Moonsault combos easily with Leaf Tornado for you third-jobbers. It's really really fun. I may deal garb damage but I think she's fun.

Lime 12-23-2011 07:39 PM

Lol lv 200 mercedes already.

Jon 12-24-2011 03:57 PM

I'm level 55 on my Mercedes so far (I got the 2x EXP event coupon which lasts until 1/1/12 [for the not logging in for a while event]), and all I have to say is HOLY CRAP. I LOVE this class. The mobility is insane, and the skills are actually really useful (especially the buffs and passives).

It is probably my favorite class; mobility is a big thing for me and having really fun skills is a plus. Definitely becoming my main.

LOL No not me. I WISH.

Its some IGN named Calmly. probably a capital I in there i bet.


I'm still scrubbing it up at lv 126... I quite fancy the mercedes storyline, wish there was more of it.

Tardar 12-25-2011 11:15 AM

I need more damage so I can LHC more effectively. It's a shame our best fourth job mobbing move requires Rising Rush to use. :<

LiLMewmew 12-25-2011 03:21 PM

I only got to level 120. damage is kinda weak for me. Maybe it's cuz I'm still using level 70 bowguns?! D:
Where to find better bowguns ;D

FM is ridiculous pricing TBH.

The Legendary coin shop event does hand out STRless 'Legendary' weapons. 50 coins gets you the lv 110 one, which is 5 attack above average and comes with potential. Better get it quick.

oh, and get yourself a few of those Maple rings if you still have empty ring slots. Or a pendant: (+6 to all and 1 Att)

LiLMewmew 12-25-2011 03:51 PM

how2legendary shop xD

buta 12-25-2011 05:24 PM

Kill rudolph. Get 3 coins for finishing quest. Repeat every 5 minutes.

KILL RUDOLPH MWAHAHAHA
