Brawler

Brawlers are characterized by their high attack speed and combo-based attacks. These nimble warriors are the masters of unarmed combat. While one of their attacks won’t annihilate a foe, a high level Brawler can use their sheer multitude of attacks to leave enemies beaten and broken.

A Brawler’s combo skills, such as Chain Assault and Sonic Rush, can be strung together to form a series of devastating attacks which can reduce enemy defenses or even interrupt their attacks.

Gunner

Gunners are exceptionally versatile, capable of both attacking their enemies and assisting their allies. Gunners’ rifles are particularly dangerous, allowing them to attack enemies from the back lines while providing support to their companions.

Gunner skills are exceptionally versatile. Gunners’ Triple Burst skill allows them to shoot three bullets at once, shredding their foes. When the situation calls for it, a Gunner can swap to a Shotgun, allowing them to attack multiple enemies with a single shot.

Warrior

Warriors are the brawniest of the four classes. As an offensive character who specializes in the use of massive two-handed swords, they are capable of dealing incredible damage. A skilled Warrior can wade into the thick of a melee and slaughter all of the enemies around them.

Warrior skills focus on dealing damage to the opposition. Quake Buster allows you to accumulate the earth’s energy, while the Rising Dawn skill causes your aura of rage to burn the enemies around you. When you’re tired of playing around, deliver the finishing blow to your enemy with the Guillotine skill, a fatal sword stroke that can cleave straight through an enemy’s neck.

Archer

Archers excel in long range attacks and hit-and-run battles. Using their acute senses, Archers are able to locate and eliminate enemies before they have the chance to counter-attack. Even if the opposition somehow survives the initial volley, they still need to find a way to reach the Archer without getting perforated.

An Archer’s skills emphasize their ranged abilities, providing them ways to finish enemies off before they can enter melee range. The Venom Bang skill allows Archers to make use of poisoned arrows. Their Phantom Arrow skill allows them to shoot three arrows at once, not only damaging multiple enemies, but also lowering their defense.

Guardians 
GMGosh’s Guide

This is just a little guide on how you all can create and use a guardian. All of the below steps are the same for all the classes. So without further ado lets get this show on the road.

Guardians are special type of construct that your character can operate, greatly increasing their capabilities in battle. 


How to Obtain a Guardian:
– You can only have one Guardian per character.
– A Guardian can be created by collecting items, crafting parts, and combining them.

Once you have collected all the pieces you will need to talk to the Guardian Master and craft: 



You will then need to place all the pieces in the provided slots and hit confirm: 



Once you have successfully crafted your Guardian you will be given a scroll and it will be located in your inventory: 

Once again you will need to talk to the Guardian Master and click register then place the scroll in the slot provided and hit register: 


After your Guardian has been registered you can either hit the hot key or open up your menu and select Guardian:

You will then see the following screen to summon or unsummon your Guardian:

Mounts

If you weren’t aware, mounts increase your movement speed when summoned/mounted. They cannot be used with guardians or in battle. Mounts can be purchased from various NPC stores. ( In Ironhold the NPC is Reed).

Using Feed

Feed extends the duration of mounts. Mount feed can be organized into 4 categories. The highest grade will only be obtainable by the AP shop.

Gosh’s Information:
Starter Mounts! These are mounts that any player can get. They are located at the Stable NPC.
This is a screenshot of them in your mount inventory.

Guilds 

You can only create a guild when your character has reached level 31. To start a guild and increase its size you must pay the NPC in Demitri/Ironhold gold.

Guild features: private guild chat, guild wars (Guild Annihilation War, Seige War, and Conquest War), location information on all active members, guild bulletin post (announcements and messages for all guildies to see).



PvP

Duels 
Duels are a 1 on 1 fight with another player. To initiate a duel hold shift and left click their character to open the menu and select duel.
(You might wish to establish with the person you are dueling with if pots may be used)

After the player accepts you have 10 seconds before it starts, you may want to use this time to buff/get close/get distanced.
There is a marked 20m radius where the duel will be, if either player moves outside of the area the duel ends. You have 3 minutes to defeat the other player, and you receive a system message telling you how much time is left.

The duel will also end if either player attacks something else, or teleports.
When a player is killed and defeated they respawn where they are.

Wars
This mass PvP is not only fun, but is the best way to earn experience points.
To enter a war, you must wait until one is about to start (they run on a timer).
When a war is about to start a message will be on the middle of your screen and the war’s icon in the lower left corner lights up. Click the icon to join.

Annihilation War
These start everyday, every two hours, on evenhours.
Up to 100 players can join at a time, and the more players- the bigger the mobs.

Your level determines the battlefield you join:

There are 3 stages to annihilation, and there is a 15 minute limit to each stage.
Defeat the mobs and stay alive!
If you die in annihilation, you are out. You will respawn where you were when you entered.
If you make it to the end you receive experience and gold!

Regular War 
These start everyday, every two hours, on odd hours.
In this basic team vs team PvP match you and up to 99 team mates (max 100 per team) fight the opposing team and destroy their pillars/stones. Battlefields are determined by your level. You’ll receive 10 Honor points for destroying a stone, 2 Honor points for destroying a guard tower, and 1 Honor point for killing an enemy.

Whether your team wins or loses you receive a war bonus equal to your amount of earned honor points and gold. If your team won, you also receive experience and gold. The top 3 characters receive a treasure box, winning team or not.

Siege War
Siege Wars occur every Monday, between 6:35pm – 7:45pm PST. Need to convert your timezone?

In this war Guilds battle it out, take control of a castle and defend or try to conquer it!
Whether you are attacking or defending depends on your guilds ranking.
Two lower ranked guilds battle against one higher ranked guild. Every week ranks reset, with regular maintenance to keep it fair.The attacking guilds can use catapults to destroy the opposing guard tower. On the other hand, the defending guild can use the guard tower, cannons, ballistae, and mines to protect their castle.The attacking guilds win when the defending guild’s Guild Stone is destroyed, and the defending guild wins if they succeed in protecting their Guild Stone for the duration of the Siege War. You will gain 5 points each time you destroy one of your opponent’s guard towers, catapults, ballistae, or cannons.

If the attacking guilds win the war, then the attacking guild that scored the most points will be declared the final winner. The winning guild will be given the bonus reward of a private field, as well as the ticket to a Conquest War.
The winning guild will also receive a 10-50% increase in Gold drop rate until the next Siege War.

Items
Since MOST of us re starting at 31 in Ironhold the NPCs for these are:
Socketing: Dirfe
Upgrading: Darf
Leveler: Dorphin

Socketing 
Socketing items allows you to add gems to your items, these gems boost various things.
To create sockets go to the NPC Rolph in Demitri, and add a socket to either armour or a weapon. Up to 4 sockets can be added to an item at once. You cannot add sockets to an item that already has some. There is a chance your item will be destroyed when creating sockets.

Cost
Socket Creation Cost = (Item Level x 1000) + (% Additional Cost by Grade)

Materials
For All Items

For Armour

For Weapons

Disassembling
Disassembling deconstructs items into basic ones, but on rare occasions may turn your item into one that is more powerful.
To disassemble an item talk to the NPC Ralph in Demitri. There is a fee for disassembling gear, and only normal gear may be disassembled (no rare, unique and artifact qualities).

Crafting 
Crafting combines two items into one even more powerful item.
To craft items talk to the NPC Ralph in Demitri, crafting is for materials, upgrade stones, and level-up stones.

Materials


Upgrading
Upgrading an item makes it more powerful (who would have guessed it?!)
To craft go to (none other than) the NPC Ralph in Demitri. To upgrade you need an item to upgrade and a unique upgrade material (special upgrade materials disappear after being used regardless of a failure or success). The higher the level/grade of your item the more expensive the upgrade will be. You cannot upgrade items that are a higher level than you.

Costs
Upgrade Fee = (Item Level x 1000) + (% Additional Cost by Grade)

Applying Upgrades 
Upgrade options are added to the final value when it is used. Options:

Warning: When an item fails an upgrade you have a 10% chance of losing the item!

Leveling Items
Item leveling adjusts items power according to your character’s level.
To level your equipment talk to the NPC Relph in Demitri. You can attempt leving items with special materials (regardless of success or failure the material is used). The higher the item is to be leveled, the lower chance of success you will have.
If you successfully level an item you will receive an item that is one level higher or lower, depending onwhat your chose to do. If the leveling fails there is a chance of the item being destroyed, and you cannot level an item higher than your character’s level.

Costs
Level-Up/Down Fee = (Item Level x 1000) + (% Additional Cost by Grade)

Level-Up Materials

Fishing

Fishing is an easy and idle way to get some cool things. To fish go to a fishing site (Serdian Beach), purchase bait from the fisherman NPC, and use the emoticon on the docks.
Your character will automatically catch fish and throw the line back out until you run out of bait. (To end fishing before this time reuse the fishing emoticon.)
Fishing will not always be a success, sometimes it fails and you receive no fish.
