[A1] Introduction and my Duelist History
Welcome to Timer's guide to a Hybrid Bunny! Now you may be wondering: Why I go Duelist? Why not a Champion because of the epic Flaming Fist? Well here's a quick not-so-quick story about my life as LadyGaap (formerly Minits).
[A2] The True Reason
"Wait- How is a Duelist useful and/or powerful?" Well, put it this way... Being a Duelist means that you have the access to AoE skills, AKA the ability to cast a skill that hits multiple targets! This helps with questing, Fiesta, or even bossing! So what if you lost Flaming Fist and all of the Champion skills! Tetra Punch is pretty much the most "powerful" physical skill for a young Bunny. Finally, i'm a female player, so I am used to play (on most games) as a girl.
[A3] What's in store from this guide?
Well, at the moment, this guide was pretty much new when I first wrote that for ggFTW members and lurkers. I will try my best to tell you what kind of skills, tips, and other sheemings for your future Duelist. This was made in inspiration from Kyzuumi's Champion (and many other character) guide(s). Some of the information will be directed to her Champ guide, because the Schoolgirl and Boxer skill table is very top notch for survivability against "certain bosses".
[A4] Keywords to the Duelist
Mind the science.. But just to jolt down the character for the Trickster newbies out there....
[B1] The Build Graph
When you start making your Bunny character, your default graph starts at "4114" (4 Power, 1 Magic, 1 Sense, and 4 Charm). Of course, there are other builds out there that are also effective for a Duelist. I'll try to explain each available builds in detail and Cash Shop availability.
Power: As a Power-type character, this stat is locked by a 4. The subsets includes: AP (Attack Power), AC (Accuracy), and DX (Dexterity, melee attack speed)
[B3] The Collection of Builds
4114 - The most default build and pretty much very popular as a Power PvP build thanks to the nice heavy ammounts of HP and HV. But, like every Bunnies, you would lack in WT (AKA the ammount to carry your pots and quest items). If you are going for that build, I suggest a 3 AP + 1 WT bonus point contribution! However, if you are very challenged (and maybe have a Fox side account at your side (seriously, I did this before), then you can go for Pure AP. For MyShop users: A MyShop pouch at your level or less is a must.
[C1] The Schoolgirl and Boxer Path?
I'll make this nice and short. Because the Duelist's previous class: Boxer and Schoolgirl have a lot of things in common when you are following the Champion guide. Because my experience on my previous classes are messed up in my early Trickster days, I would recommend looking at Kyzuumi's Champion Guide, especially the Schoolgirl and Boxer path. Because seriously, that guide save my Bunny Tail when I face these "certain bosses and obstacles".
(Make sure that once you are a Duelist, you can stop following the Champ guide and go your own ways in terms of skill learning...)
[C2] The Path to a Ranged Fighter...
Fancy title, ne? Well, while this may confuse you, I see "Duelists" (and Buffaloes) as the "Fighter Mages" in Trickster, because they have the access to skills that requires Element Attributes. (For the newcomers: I reference "Fighter Mages" because the Sheep (Soul Master or Witch) had the access to Elemental spells as well, though in a more magical fashion compare to what the Power-type characters using swords.)
For my view-point on these Warrior skills, I sort the "Elemental skills" by "Paths". You get two elements per prerequisite skill: "Piercing Wave" and "Lacerator". This will help you in which set of skills you want to learn first (especially after you decide to learn Berserker first).
Piercing Wave Path
Piercing Wave - A skill that can hit at a farther range, suitable for hitting a single prey far from a cliff! :D A requirement to get Earthquake and Inferno Blade.Lacerator Path
Lacerator - A AoE linear skill. It may not have the same magic for the Earthquake/Inferno combo, but again, it is a requirement for the following skills below.Other Notable Skills
[C3] Skill Mastery Items
Piercing Wave Path:
Here are some screenshots of each skill!
[D1] Schoolgirl to Boxer
Thanks to the Season 2 patch, advancing to a Boxer is easy as snatching Don Giuvani's boxers! :D For the items you need to advance:
While you get a new look (you can change your appearance back by paying 50,000 Galders to Louis Bitton at Megalopolis), you will also be rewarded with a Red Cape from Boxer Jeane as a "trial cape" (yes it's timed). I will explain about Capes when I go through the equipment.
Finally... You need to be Lv. 50 and TM 40 (rTO (Thai based private TO client) requires LV 60 and TM 50!) in order to advance!
[D2] Boxer to Duelist
Finally... The reason of why you are reading this guide.... If you are brain-dead, then the major reason why you are reading this is because you want your Bunny to become a Duelist! Though going through the process of getting to 3rd job may require a grocery list (with many credits to Kyzuumi for the list (with minor tweaks for Season 2)...)....
Oh dear god. Well, with Tetra Punch and other Boxer skills in hand, Lvl. 120 giftbox you got from your questing (contains 2 Resurrection Scrolls) , HP/MP pots, AND equips that have AP, HP, and/or Element Attribute, the guide made by Kuzuumi really paid off, as well if lucky to have friends who can lend you a Boss set (like Captain Skull's set), you are probably going to be more lucky than what I have to go through on LadyGaap. ^^; I'll TRY to explain each "Tribunal" bosses and what you should be aware off.... (Again feel free to contirubte anything to make this guide better!)
After that and turn in all of the remaining items, BAM you are a proud Duelist!
[E1] The Basics
In the game, monsters are not really as strong, but they will be if you are not careful. To make sure that your adventures are set, I have split up the two categories for each equip category: In-Game and Myshop. In-Game equips are gears you can get within the game. The Boss Uniques and Ult. Equipment can be dropped from Boss Monsters, unless you go and buy them from user-shops. (Boss Uniques can be very expensive than Ults. depend on the server economy.) It's up to you if you would ratter not waste to much real life money on Trickster, but be warned that trying to fund for in-game gears may cost extra Galders for Nate Elixirs (if needed), Elixirs, and Refine Powders, which all can get in-game via the "Lvl Up Giftbox".
For me, I'm built for PvM, despite the amount of MyShop I spent on. However, I try to fit right in with the PvP/GvG communities with a few extra equips that increase AP (because Tetra Punch's speed rate is faster than Inferno Blade). It is up to you with the choices I split up for In-Game viewers (OR boss unique collectors) and MyShop users. If you are planning to spend time on this game, there is a good chance that you will either be exposed to MyShop-independent or a fusion of in-game gears and MyShop ones. You decide.
A section for Duelist-related guides that have been recorded by me, as well giving my written tips on beating them. Take in mind that your method as a Duelist might be different from mine (and that's why sharing is caring)!
Chaos Tower Final Boss: Outraged Requiem
VERY FIRST run
Okay. This is one hell of a huge boss, and maybe the most difficult one I faced if not careful. (However, I am fine thanks to over-level.) As you can see, I am pretty cautious about using Berserker for the first time, which cost my Resurrection scrolls. Guard, Power-buffs, BERSERKER (melee was a lot more stronger than elemental of physical skills), and a Guardian should help you on this boss, oh and as well carry many HP (more than MP sadly) pots.
Because of my lack of WT, I am stuck using Cheerleader Stella T4 for it's god WT (again for the first time), as well "decent" AP (though not as great as my Splish Splash Yupika T4 pet... All of these pets are from the Egg Shop before they are out of stock).
Finally, my strategy may be differ from yours, especially by level! So if you want a successful Chaos-through, you might want to get Lv. 300+ and invest in the best gears as possible (depends on YOU of course), especially the the Altiverse equips once you completed the Tower story-quests!
Probably something that you will not do on your adventures. But if you are planning to go to any Harkon Protection events, make sure you have equips of AP, a bit of HP, and Inferno Set if you can invest and LOTS of Pots! You will be using A LOT of AoE skills, which require a stack of MP pots!
Being a Lv. 3xx+ Duelist is worth it when you are about to face Gorgons! Inferno Blade would be very effective to them with your Fire gears on! :)
Finally, as usual when getting your Guardian: Have it learn de-buffs first (especially Skunk)!
VS. OLD (Pre-S2) Spicy Dragon
*Plays Yakkety Sax on BG...* This video was taken like two years ago, but it is still a perfect example of my Duelist years!
This is taken before I got my Inferno Set. And a good thing I don't have them on... Why? Because Spicy absorbs all Fire Att.! If you want to beat Spicy, here are a few things: Guardian, AP Helm (replace Inferno Helm), AP/HP cape (replace Inferno cape), and whatever equip you have, which either are AP/HP balance, and a elemental att. weapon (NOT FIRE) to add the damage!
VS. Queen Odniea
I already put out a guide on this video, especially some Duelist/Power related tips, as well what-to-get for your Guadian's skills. But i'll re-phrase it.
To have a safe battle (though you still need pots), have your own buffs on, and have your Guardian equip with magic de-buffs (MA/LK) as well Skunk. Have Tetra Punch and Faint (Shockwave) ready too. Let your Guardian debuff first, and then you can strike with Faint, and then repeat with Tetra until Faint is needed again. BE CAREFUL with Arrow Rush, because this skill can hurt you!
I'm Lv. 35X now, so this strategy might change for me, but this should still be a good reminder for all Duelist of all levels with a Guardian to keep this skills ready in your fingers!
VS. Count Blood
Oh god I forgot that I did a re-make w/ my up-to-date level!
If you are about Lv. 17X and have Guard and at least MAYBE Berserker (not highly recommended unless you have a Anti-Banish scroll), but for Blood, you will need Tetra Punch and other Boxer attacks. AoEs should be at best used on the 3rd Trial with at least a matching attribute to your equips. (And again have the Inferno set if you can invest at Lv. 240+.) Oh and have your Guardian with you, because Skunk debuffs is your best friend. (Having Faint (Shockwave) would be an extra freeze luxury too!)
If you are planning to become a long-term Blood-hunter like me, he will be pretty easy, that it's like cake-walk at the Trials, let alone pretty quick if you have a sprint with you. The max that you can enter is at Lv. 360+. (Help me clarify this!)
[F1] Yea... I'll get to those until I get real questions that are asked to me many, many times...
Yes... Because this guide was made out of my experience from a mix of LadyGaap (Duelist) and JessicaUshiromia (Champion), not all info may be accurate! So you know what this means?
YES I am accepting tips, additional info, and other related sheemings to the guide! I will credit you with your info in "Spoilers"! I wish I can gift you guys something as a thank-you... But your contributions will help benefit those future Duelists who needs a guide from a "pro" like me! ^^; There is no form required... Just post as usual, and i'll judge if the tip or additional fact is worth value to the guide!
[G2] Legal Rights
[G4] Version History
August 04, 2014. Version 1.06. Even if Trickster is long gone at all regions, private servers are a thing and I did small updates, but will not touch the images. It's mainly the questions I get when someone read my copied version of the guide! (Like... Seriously.) If you are from the rTO PServer, this guide is still valid! There are small things I did not cover and no pretty image updates, sorry! Updated small stuff, but nothing major. :)
July 3, 2012. Version 1.05. Fixed the Equipment Guide (thank you Azhinal!) and added yet another Outraged Requiem video for Berserker demo!
March 26, 2012. Version 1.04. Oh whoops I forgot that I re-did a Blood-Trials video! This should give a uncut video-through on it!
February 11, 2012. Version 1.03. Minor tweaks that don't deserve a version change, and decided to include the "video guides" for other Duelist-related topics.
November 29, 2011. Version 1.02. Updated the context and descriptions on the Equipment section, fixed up the Skills section (once again and includes a SS), as well a term for "Lolbox". If anyone got any suggestions to put key terms into the guide for Trickster nubs, please tell me!
November 28, 2011. Version 1.01. Okay. Fixed the Schoolgirl/Boxer description path... Actually, since I took time to write it, I made a TL;DR (straight to the point in lesser characters) for you guys.
November 27, 2011. Version 1.0 Entire (crazy) guide up and posted! @___@;;
Reserving post slot...
Reserving post slot 3.
Bleh. I wish there's a mod who can fix my title... (It was easy to fix at eTO forums, bleh!)
IT'S OPEN!!! FEEL FREE TO COMMENT AND SUCH!!!!
If you report your first post and write in the report what you would like the title to be changed, the mods will be able to see it - I did that for my champion guide.
My only suggestion that I really want to say is when you link to my schoolgirl/boxer skill build, it would be easier for the reader to pick it out if you linked it at the end of the paragraph, like this:
Long paragraph e Long paragraph e Long paragraph e Long paragraph e Long paragraph e Long paragraph e Long paragraph e Long paragraph e
Burying it the paragraph might drive the lazies mad. You can always link it in the paragraph and at the end too, for less rewriting.
Ah okay then~ Let me try to fix it!
Oh how much you hate when you have a mix of homework and a bit of Trickster, even though I can't be on the time compare to the previous semesters.
EDIT: Fixed. Yea TBH I can be nervous when I check my creation that is not art.
Bumping! Made some changes, especially a very deep view-through and suggestions on equips and such!
Thank you very much >w<
This helps a lot :3
Reminder to everyone that I am accepting any Duelist tips or other information to the page! :)
Also... If you are planning to visit the Chaos Tower, make sure you have some WT and Pots ready! Oh and BERSERKER on that dragon! >< (I learned the hard way...)
i love u and your Guide ~Awesome like you <3
This is awesome :py11: Thank you <3<3 I think I never saw a duelist guide, this will help me even though I'm lvl 22x already :py25: At least now I know which equipment I should get (since I kinda lack 'understanding' about that area).
Hm, not sure if this will do any better to the guide but, how about giving some tips on where to level? Like what quests to do etc...just a suggestion 'cause I've seen that alot in guides.
Anyway, really fantastic, again Thanks Alot :py15:
Umm, "Also when you completed Epi. 8 quests to activate the bonus quests, you can get a untradable in-game cape, but the stats are not as great compare to a Leaf Cape. " Episode 8? Dont you mean Episode 6?
