C9 Slayer Comprehensive Guide by Momoyo


First of all, Thanks for pick up Slayer class, it is one of the hardest class to play in C9. I know many players will quit slayer after lv 50+ gameplay, and many people quit C9 because they played slayer. After all,  I wish this guide will help you to stay.
PS: Please feel free to add your comment and I will make change to the guide constantly

Slayer Overlook

Slayer is a pvp class, and it required high skill to be mastered. The learning curve is high and required a lot of pratice to play well.

– Fast movespeed, and attack rate
– Strong air combo
– Strong Grab Skill (This is ALLL what slayers for)

– Low HP, Attack, and Armor (Very bad for melee class)
– Short skill range (Many Skill required very close range to be able to successful cast)
– Almost no pve aoe skill

Now, I will explain why Slayer is a pvp class due to the end-ame play, and why Slayer is one of the hardest class in C9. Basically for C9, there are 4 things you do when you reach endgame:

1. Dungeon Farming: People solo high level dungeon (lv 50+ Master) due to the Card Reward system
2. Hell Gear Farming: 4-player party to farm the best gear in game, current hell gear have lvl 35 set and lvl 47 set.
3. Survive Mode: a 20-level dps dungeon that give good reward at each 5 level, including cash item such as exp boost and stamina potion.
4. PVP: This include the the pvp ranking system in arena and other pvp play such as cash tournament.

Now, why I said slayer is a pvp class, is not only because his skills are good in pvp but is beacuse he is so bad in other things. If we rank the above 4 endgame conetent out of 10 score. Here is how each class is:


Guardian 3 4 4 9
Blademaster 7 6 6 8
Warrior 3 4 4 8
Ranger 5 8 9 7
Scout 4 8 10 6
Assasin 3 4 4 9
Taoist 7 6 6 8
Elementalist 6 7 7 6
Illusionist 7 8 8 7
Warden 7 8 10 6
Slayer 3 4 4 9

(*This rank is not official, is from other C9 fansite. The pvp rank is considering only 1vs1 Arean Rank 9 and up. which is the top two rank of the serve.)

Passive Tab

The following Skills you should max no matter what:

The following skills you may want to max:

Critical Increases:
– Suggest lv 0 if you are low in SP
– Suggest Max if you have extra SP
(*depend on your equipment)

Max MP Increase
– Suggest lv 0 if you have enough MP when fighing Guardian
– Suggest as many as possible if you alwasy runing low on MP
(*depend on your equipment)

Dagger Slinger
– Suggest lv 0 if you dont use dagger throwing skills
– Suggest lv 1 if you use a lot of dagger throwing skills

Slayer’s Equipment

Slayer use sword and dagger, sword for physical attack and dagger for magic attack. You perform sword attack by right click and dagger attack by left click. So make sure always use right click when you play slayer. This will also help you a lot if you use dagger throwing skill, When you have 0 dagger, your left click attack wont work.

I suggest two options for weapon choice.

1. One weapon that add Critical and the other weapon that add Accuracy. This option will provide you with stable damage output

2. Both weapon that add attack speed. This option will provide you with better combo ability, you can chain all your skill faster means less combo fail.

For accesory, I suggest use Max MP + HP Recovery. If you have max iceball, use water for all your elemental attack.

Slayer Combo List

Slayer lv 37 Combo (Easy)

This is a relatively easy combo for slayer, it only required lv 37 to do it. That why I put this up first. However, even I said easy, it required at least 15-30 hour to practice for beginner. People who are no good in action combo wont even complete the starting part (Wind Rave + Jump Right-Click). Expect to spend 30+ hour to practice if you are slow hand:

Wind Rave +  Jump Right Click + Deadfall + Killer Bee + Blaring Sihoutte + Sub Slash + ‘E’ + Cross Combination + Cross Combination Edge + Twist Flip Kick + Jump Left-Click & Right Click + Heartbreaker + Ringshear Kick + Deadfall + Killer Bee + Chain Scirsorr Slash + Mortal Chain Cut

Slayer Loop Air Combo

Here is a loop-able air combo, you can continuous this forever if you have enough mana,  Here is the youtube, I will give out the skills later.
