Analysis of Top Destroyer Build (From Korea)

DNB: I would like to emphasize that this build is extracted from the Korea event, and it is not meant to be an exact 100% good skill build. As you can see from the title, it is an analysis.

Before going into analysis of the Top Destroyer Build, as usual, I will show the description of the 3 new skills first. Credits to chaose5 from MMOsite.

  • Breaking Point: Chance to break enemy superarmor and deal critical hits. 15% chance, cd 7sec.
  • Flying Swing EX: Enhanced flying swing, deal additional aftershock damage. AOE significantly improved.
  • Maelstorm Howl:  Suck the enemy around him towards himself and howl to deal heavy damage. While sucking, phy and mag damage received is reduced by 70%. Phy dmg 494.8%+2638. CD 45sec at Lv1. The suction damage ignores target’s invincibility, guardian shield etc.

Guide on Mercenary Skill Build

Welcome to the Guide on Mercenary Skill Build!

While I was fiddling with the skill simulator for a lv 50 build, I realised I forgot to share a tip with you all. If you want to refrain from using real cash to buy skill reset, please do think twice before increasing any skills to a higher level. You may discover that you need SP here and there for your 2nd advancement skills pre-requisite but you have already wasted. So either save your SP or plan out a lv 50 build properly. =)

In this guide, I will be using a lv 40 Axe Hybrid Mercenary Skill Build. Personally, I am quite a fan of Cabal Online previously. For those who know about the game, you must know about one of the skills of the warrior class => Whirlwind. For DN, mercenary has whirlwind skills too! Shikai and Bankai mode =D

Well, I guess the intro is a bit long =X. So now, a point to note is that Mercenaries have no magic or physical build difference. All their skills are based on physical attack. And this is also a good class for both PvP and PvE. However, there are really many skills for Mercenaries so you have to give and take. You may want to shift some SP from attack skills to defensive skills for higher survivability.

Advantages:

  • High Spammability – You will many skills to spam most of the time. This feels more exciting compared to the situation if you need to wait long time for your skills to cool down.
  • Able to learn many useful skills including the various howls which benefit either yourself or the whole party member within the vicinity. Read the rest of this entry
