The Defensive system of the game Edit
Choosing to be the ultimate tanking character requires you to understand a few basic defensive principles. The mechanics of the game are expansive and there are few important things you should take note and be prepared to secure yourself.
- Defense and Magic Defense: Primary defensive line which reduce the amount of damage from each standard attack. Standard attack which includes, normal attack or target opponent standard attack. The higher your defenses and magic defenses is, the lower the damage you received, only from standard attack.
- Damage reduction: Ultimately the most important defensive line you can ever build. Damage reduction can be divided into three categories, physical damage reduction, magic damage reduction, and Both or All (-All received damage). Damage reduction reduces the damage you received from any form of attacks divided at different level. For example, reflect damage which you received from a physical attack you dealt on a world boss that returns to you, will be cancel off if your damage reduction is high enough to absorb it. All received damage does however, affect any forms of attack including standard attack, Skill damage or elemental damage, and reflect damage. However, it is by both of damage reduction and defense/magic defenses which holds the pillar of your survivability. Countering high damage reduction of your opponent requires skill which stated, Target + received damage such as Burn, Shinobi's Ultimate skill, Holy Knight's Pull, etc as you will learn this later on.
- Blocking: As the third line of defense, shield wielder adds another line of defense which protect the character from harm. Successful blocking is influenced by block rate, and the damage which it will reduce depends on the amount of Strength (STR) stats that you have, including talents, passive etc.
- Resistance: Resistance reduces the damage from specialized skill damage which has elemental properties. Certain bosses has very powerful skill damage which bypass your three primary defenses and destroy you instantly, and sometimes leaving you clueless. These however, are actually skill damage. They are divided into dark, fire, ice, lightning, nature and holy damage.
- Evasion: Most elusive defensive properties, yet specialized by certain classes such as ranger's, assassin, and demolitionist class line. Evasion will prevent target player or monster to deal damage to you by regarding it as misses. Evasion allow misses and no damage will be dealt on you. To counter higher evasion classes is to have higher Hit Rate (Accuracy).
- Reduced Physical/Magical - critical and critical damage: Reduces the chances of receiving critical damage and the damage from critical damage. The higher your -Critical rate, the lesser chances you received a critical hit. The higher your -Critical Damage, the lesser the damage you received from a critical damage.
- Debuff System - A range and variety of debuff system which causes weakening of the character state. Weakening of the character state causes a range of lowered stats and making your character susceptible to death. The more debuff you received, the higher chances you will received higher damage, locked, or unable to activate skills, etc. However, any debuff on you does not last forever, so buy some time or remove it.
Start-up: Master of Protection Edit

After choosing the paladin class line, you will now specialized in the element of holiness. If the light is your becoming, then the light will guide your way.

- Sprite collection fame - Jale steam mine, Treasure appraisal, and Magic academy. The fame which you earned from submitting sprite for collection, and suddenly reward you with a quest scroll, do it. The fame which you will accumulate from that scroll is important for you later on.
- Sprite Messenger fame - Cumulative sprite messenger fame will let you craft certain yellow items later on. Few quest will allow you to earn the fame, and plenty more you will get from submitting a fully trained sprite at any altars.

The weapon's with special effect are divided into orange, yellow, and purple later on at level 70 onward. The effect which the weapon produce can add up tremendous amount of effect that surpasses any of the normal weapons you obtained from dungeons. As soon as you learn what weapon to use, at level 50 you can unlock and use yellow weapon's with great effect. The more you progress and learn about the gears of the game, you will realize something about proc, which is switching two different weapon to add up the effect of both weapons!
The rest, is for you to explore! Good Luck, and all the best.
General PvE Guide: Edit
What is PvE? PvE is also known as player versus environment or player versus monster in few other community. These include monsters which you find roaming around the field, dungeons and special dungeons. They are considered entity or Artificial intelligence (A.I) which you defeat to earn some item drops. PvE can be divided into few categories, these include field monsters and dungeon monsters. Field monsters are for quest and hunting, which can be done and earn some rewards. Dungeon monsters are harder, and tougher, compared to field monsters.
As for the quality of gears you be getting, the better the color, the higher the value. There are white, green, blue, orange, yellow, purple weapons and armor to select. Better valued gear, such as orange, yellow, purple will allow you to defeat monster faster, and renders your character stronger. You can also fortified it to increase the stats of the gears!
Just a few basic weaponry selection guide:
- One handed sword - Quicker but lower damage. As for Paladin class line, sword allows you to deal quicker damage but at lower damage value. Settings with talent combination allows you to equipped it with higher hit rate.
- One handed hammer - Intermediate damage and speed. Paladin class line which equipped with hammer allows a talent combination of a magical defenses and damage.
- One handed Axe - highest damage as for one handed equipped with shield, at a cost of lowered speed. Few settings on the talent combination allows it to be quicker.
- Two handed Sword - Quickest of the two handed series. They deal good damage and good speed.
- Two handed hammer - Intermediate damage and speed of the two handed series. It deals both physical and magical attack.
- Two handed Axe - The strongest weapon stats in the game, but at the cost of speed. It is slower to attack with two handed axe, however, it is good when dealing with plenty of monster. It deals heavier damage to multiple monster.
Basic shield selection guide:
- Offensive Shield - Shield which adds up effect on the weaponry when combined wield. There are few shield which increases the damage per second (DPS) rate. For example: Level 50 Yellow Shield - Lord of Cruelty add up 100% Critical rate during an attack when the shield proc take effect. Level 60 Orange Shield - Creator's Embrace add up Maximum Melee attack speed during an attack for 20 seconds!
- Defensive Shield - Shield which adds up the effect of the armory when wield. Defensive shield allows you to tank multiple monster, and here is a secret - some shield which says "when attacked, it activates", the more monster attacking you, the higher the chances of the shield will take effect! For example, Level 75 Yellow shield - Luminous Galaxy, which gives you 100% defense for 5 seconds when attacked, even if it's only 5 seconds, but monster which keeps attacking you will make the shield take effect always, and give you as if, a permanent 100% defense! However the important shield that you should always carry around, is Level 65 Yellow shield - Realm of Eternity. The shield, also known as RoE, will prevent you from weakening state which you will realize later on in dungeons. It prevents sudden death, and terrible curse.
General PvP Guide: Edit
What is PvP? It is also known as Player versus player. In the battlefield, you can enter and join in the arena for a special player versus player combat. It is an exclusive arena where players gather together to test their limit and preparing themselves to be the best with their finest of skills!
There are daily basis form of arena which you can accumulate Saphael's Heart PvP fame, which allows you to trade in the fame, for great awesome items! Once you are ready for player versus player, join in and see where do you stand, and keep progressing and improving, that is how the best are made of! Keep training by joining more arena, and once you get use to it, you will love it and enjoy the excitement!
Don't worry about getting killed back to back in arena just because other players are stronger than you. It is okay. It's not a 100% gear basis game, as it will include player's talent in setting up their character, understanding the arena and other players, understanding your team capabilities, and most importantly, understanding your skills. Your skills are not sitting down in entrance, your skills are made to support your team by doing what your character does best. If your character dies to a countering character, it does not matter. Each class has it's advantages and disadvantages, make use of your advantages, and secure your disadvantages.
There are weaker character, that does everything to support the team even if he is killed many times by stronger player. He does not feel the shame of death many times in arena, but there are people who respect such a person, because even if he is limited to support the team, he does his best and understood you are trying to improve. There are mature player who see these, so do not worry on spits you can just wipe off, and keep improving.
As for the rest of it, have fun! PvP is made of rage, swearing and sometime tears. Although, what you will get in the end, is knowledge. The treasure people cannot stole from you.
Good Luck, and all the best!
