OK, before anything, the 1st thing you should do is get to lvl 59 and 50% just in case you get killed by arrows or die on an Atross/Boss accident.
OK, to have a nice build you need to make a balance betewn HP, Def, and AP
to do this you need to balance your Weapon vs Stats (stat pool), and Armor vs accesories
As a priest, you'll have to split your stats between Str, Int and HP
There are 2 ways to chose how to put your stats
1) Put your stats up to euip your armor and weapon and the rest to HP
This setup allows you to have aditional HP which allows you to be able to hold on longer and probly be able to use Undying (lvl 54 Aura Skill that boosts 60% of your total HP).
2) Put your Stats up to your armor and the rest on Str
This Build allows you have greater Str which give you greater Atack Power but rather low HP which would need to be balanced with either armor or accesories.
- High Str and low HP
- Mid Str and Mid HP
For Priest Prest, thee's an AP reducion when equiping a weapon but under level 59 (before doing the Master Quest), this reduction doesn't include Clubs. The top 2 clubs to be used are the Iron Impact (II) and the Hell breaker (HB). In adream there's the never ending conflict of either usnig Hell Breaker or Iron Impact which will never be resloved cause neither is better than the other. In this topic I'll be comparing tha II +8 with the HB +7 cause they are worth aroung the same price.
Iron Impact +8:
Requires 190 Str and has 180 AP and 80 Lighting Damage (Not Recomended to use Reduced weapons)
Hell Breaker +7:
Requires 174 Str and has 169 AP and 140 Flame Damage and 17 Int
For the 2nd stat option (Int for armor and the rest to Str) you can use either, Why?
If you wear the II +8 you'll wear it with atlest 190 str. If you wear the HB +7 with 190 str then the AP diference wouldn't be to great (this is why some warriors make more or same dmg with HB +7). And with the highest Str in stats pool posible Either weapon would do fine cause the Average damage inflicted should be around the same...
But if you wear the HB +7 with 174 str then the ap diference would be a lot greater than using the II +8 with 190 Str
(I Ignored the Inteligence bonus on the HB cause 17 Int is less than 250 mana so it's not such a big diff as mentioned in other topics)
- Stat Option 1 with HB +7 (high HP and low AP)
- Stat Option 1 and II +8 (Mid HP and mid AP)
- Stat Option 2 and Either weapon (Low HP and High damage)
I'll use the example of +9 Armor so you can see a greater stat difference.
In Adream there are to type of armor that can be used as a BP and those are the Fabric Armor (G1) and the silk Armor (G2). any other armor like Plate Armor (G3) would take to much Inteligence to equip so It would be a huge decrease in Stats on the Stat Pool (Stats you put on Character Data).
Fabric Armor Build:
The G1 (+9) 190 Def (without a Helmet) Req. 78 Int & 67 Str
This build required 78 Int points on the stats pool allowing the user to have 159 free stats to split between HP and Str.
I showed the amount of def without a helmet cause its extremely recomende tho have a Dagger Defence (dd) Helmet in Adream. There are 2 dd helms that can be used by a G1 priest and those are the non-upgradeable rare item helmets from older servers or the upgradeable kind of dd helmets that came out after the ROFD. If im correct, there are only 2 kinds of Rare Items dd G1 helmets and those are the +3/10DD helmet and the +6/25 dd helmet. The +3 are cheap and but the +6's are pretty expensive and hard to find, so for those who can't afford to buy a +6, I recomend to get a +7/15 dd helmet (The upgradeable kind).
Silk Armor Build:
The G2 (+9) 231 def (without a Helmet) Req. 116 Int & 86 Str
This build requires provides the user to have 41 more def points at the cost of 38 stats points. Requires 116 int and 86 str points, leaving 102 free stat points to use on HP and Str. With this type of bouild, its imposible to equip an II +8 cause of the lack in stat points, however, you could equip an II revith +4 which requires 188 str points wich is excatly what you'll get if you equip one of these. This build, in an older server, also allows you to e able to equip the G2 +6/25 dd helmet which is a lot cheaper than the G1 +6/25 dd helmet and alot easier to find.
- Stat Option 1 with HB +7 & G1 Armor (Mid-Low Ac, High HP and Mid AP)
- Stat Option 1 and II +8 & G1 Armor (Mid-Low Ac, Mid HP and Mid-High AP)
- Stat Option 2 and Either weapon & G1 Armor (Mid-Low Ac, Low HP and High damage)
- Stat Option 1 with HB +7 & G2 Armor (Mid-High Ac, Mid HP and Mid-Low AP)
- Stat Option 1 and II RB +4 & G2 Armor (Mid-High Ac, Mid-Low HP and Mid AP)
- Stat Option 2 and Either weapon & G2 Armor (Mid-High Ac, Low HP and Mid-High damage)
(I need to get more Info on these... stats ect...)
This type of build is for people that can't afford to buy Unique Items.
