Actually I'm a "quiet reader" of these topic. I mean is a great guide, and I don't have any more input to complement it. I take into account that there are some chars that I am not taking full advantage of. Is a guide meant for everyone.

Thanks!

Please stop derailing Vaduz's thread this is some useful information for newcomers.    :(

I don't see people derailing except you....

nvm someone derailed it a few days ago and Forums Admins must of remove it.  :( my bad

RASCEL
___________________

Melee

Personal Skill:  Sand Storm (AOE attack)

Character Buff:  [Reduces damage to monster] Level 1 (PvE damage received -5%)

Use Middle Guard until you get Sabretooth.  Sabre Tooth uses a sabre in one hand, and either a dagger or a main-gauche in the other.  Keep Venom Blade up at all times and skill spam.  Use Sand Storm and Dust Storm if you're surrounded by enemies, otherwise use Penta Simeter for multi-target and Blade Stomp and Tearer for single-target.  Most of his skills have debuffs associated with them.

All stat points into STR.

Not a bad character.  Not stellar, but not bad.

Can I just add (I don't think a lot of people realize this)  Rascel's Decay debuff from Venom Blade is pretty helpful in squad situations.   300 Damage per level (maximum 10 levels, 3000 damage) per attack from any player controlled character (Anything not a summon or a construction).  Bypasses all defense or resistances.   In a 6+ man squad, this is a good way to add a lot of essentially free damage.  (of course the drawback is that Rascel's got to be alive and hitting something for this to work, but he's essentially a lot like Lisa that way).  I'm unsure of the resist rates for Decay lately (I haven't used Rascel in forever) but I don't remember them being too terribly bad.

Sorry for taking so long.  I've updated Rascel's section.

I also updated some of some information on the Fighter and the Musketeer.

After doing more testing, I've discovered things I really need to update my guide with.

And I've confirmed that they desperately need to update certain stances, particularly Flintlock.

Updates will come over the next couple of days.

RALPH
___________________

Range/DPS

Personal Skill:  Silent Move (self-buff)

Character Buff:  [Accuracy] Level 1

Ralph is an Intelligence Officer from Vespanola who was dispatched to investigate a situation in the new continent. His weapon is Crossbow (he basically enhanced version of Calyce)

At start you can only use sharpshooter and need to wait for him to reach expert lv to make him able to use Shining Sting. Good thing is his buff "Sharp Eye" isnt removed after changing stance, and all his skill in his expert stance does double dmg in silent move status

All stat points into DEX.

a little bit history for him, He's the 2nd unique premium char released after Asoka (by put aside ATP, STF, BSI, ICP, ETS) when this game run under Gamerfirst development. when his first premiere, G1 make an event that Ralph was captured by Simon because he's vespanola and jailed in City of Auch. You need to buy a key in cash shop and you need to go to Auch D8 trying to release him (it works similar like Lucky Shop nowadays, but without 100th bonus purchase or such). In old patch, Calyce used to be named Calypso, and she cant use buff "eagle's eye" right after use "silent move", so she can only use "cat's eye" buff while invisible. That's where Ralph has an advantage, since his silent move is his personal skill, it wouldnt canceled wheter you changing stances. But after Veil comes, Calyce now can use buff while invisible like Ralph. Even tho, Ralph still has more in-build penetration (i've checked it) than Calyce with eagle eye and cat's eye buff active. Ralph now overshadowed by other chars, but he still can rock on in various raids and pvp with his stealth dps style. He also appear in some instance quest as an Archeologist with "monocle" face costume equiped.

This is proving more difficult than I thought it would be because I keep running out of room.  I'll work something out, but it's getting to be quite the pain.

In the meantime, if anyone wants to "contribute" by "donating" rare characters to me for "testing" *cough* I would not say no.
