    I. Intro:
    of all, this is my very first guide. I made this guide basically
    because there are no current and up to date guides about a s/s hybrid
    nuker, and as my favorite class, I want to make one. I could choose to
    hide my build because I love it, but this game isn’t that difficult
    after you play it for a while, and there are hardly any secrets...
    do crticize my guide and give me feedback, good and bad so i can
    improve and update it, give your opinion and thoughts, but do it all in
    a civilized manner.

    For planning purposes, extra help with balances, sp, farming and just character planning in general, see http://www.nivlam.com

    this is, this entire guide is solely MY INFORMATION. I have not taken
    anything from anyone else unless otherwise noted. If need be I will add
    a credits section to give credit to those who help me with my guide,
    but as of the first post of this topic, it is all from my own head.
    Scary eh?

    So, Why be a hybrid S/S nuker?
    with the new introduction of snow shield, combined with being a hybrid,
    you can tank like your on steroids, while dealing out super damage.
    Good hp, blocking, good def, snow shield, whats not to love?

    I am a lvl 80 hybrid int s/s nuker, I was originally a spear user, but
    decided on sword/shield because I want block, extra defense to stay
    alive…and kd with quadruple stabs at lvl 90

    I have a really good build for lvl 80 and 90, and this guide will be
    divided into a lvl 80 and a lvl 90 build.I have tried to include sp
    amounts to make this guide as helpful as possible, there is both a MAX
    sp count, and more economical version in areas where it can apply.

    My current build is:

    this is my suggested build for lvl 80 and below is basically why I chose these things.

    [​IMG]II. LVL 80 Bicheon
    Bicheon: mastery from 0-80 is going to cost 44,826 sp
    Bicheon tree is your main pvp skill with some offset skills to help in grinding. It’s also very fun to use.
    I’ll start from top to bottom on a comprehensive discussion for each series.

    [​IMG]Smashing Series:

    lvl 80, it was a useless skill to have. Now that Flying Stone Smash has
    a chance to cast bleed onto someone, it becomes useful. I will confess,
    my fully farmed 80 DOES NOT have this series, but I really do wish I
    did. Bleed will cast damage over time, and also reduces the defense of
    the opponent slightly, very useful if casted. It can be pilled off with
    new pills, but they have a 20 sec delay and not everyone will have
    them. Worth a shot.
    Maxing this series will cost you 18,988 sp
    Getting only lvl 1 of flying stone smash, so u can just use the status will cost you 10,330 sp

    [​IMG]Chain Sword Attack Series:

    in pvp until lightning chain, but helpful in grinding because a chain
    will do more damage than a nuke, its just split up into 4-6 hits
    instead of one hit. Lightning chain is your goal because of the status
    effects. It can randomly cast:
    -Impotent-reduces the damage dealt by the opponent
    -Bleed-does DoT and slightly reduces opponents defense
    -Division-greatly reduces opponents defense
    bleed and division, my 7 sword is capable of 11-13k average on a str
    glaiver, max ever was 15k on a lvl 80 glaiver. Again, useful for the
    status effect.
    Maxing this series will cost you 40,277 sp
    Excluding the chains not needed for lightning chain and lightning chain remaining at lvl 1: 11,863 sp

    [​IMG]Shield Technique series:

    shield and IronWall shield are VERY USEFUL!!!! GET THEM!!! They
    basically increase your phy defense for 15 seconds, super useful when
    your getting hammered by str chars. Mountain shield and Giant shield
    IMO are a waste of sp, haven’t found much of ANY use for them except
    eating sp.
    SP cost for castle shield and iron wall: 13,685 sp

    [​IMG]Blade Force Series:

    Agro mobs onto you, fun to pwn noobs with, but no real super use IMO.
    Sp cost: 18,182sp recommended:0

    [​IMG]Hidden Blade Series:

    bread and butter, but so much tastier. Its simple really, just use it,
    and it has a chance to KD people, once they are on the ground you can
    follow up with stabs.
    SP cost: 36,902 sp, no cut backs here.

    [​IMG]Killing Heaven Blade Series:

    use this series to stab enemies that you have knocked onto the ground,
    super effective in pvp, again a skill to love. Starts out one stab,
    then another single stab, then a double stab. (another double stab at
    lvl 90) and u can use 2 stab skills while an opponent is on the ground,
    unless your lagging. >.<
    Sp cost: 20,120sp No cut backs here.

    [​IMG]Sword dance series:
    like blade force series but it hits multiple people, Useless for you
    except to agro mobs over. My recommendation is to get lvl 1 snake sword
    dance and lvl 1 petal sword dance so you can use them, but not waste sp
    on them.
    Suggested sp: 729 sp

    [​IMG]Shield Protection Series (passive)
    is your bicheon passive, it makes you block more, nuff said, max it and
    never even think of not maxing ANY passive u have mastery lvls of.
    SP to max: 5,844 sp no cut backs!

    [​IMG]III. LVL 80 Lightning

    Lightning: mastery from 0-80 is going to cost 44,826 sp
    is a must for all int based characters, because every skill within it
    is essential to magical based attacks and characters.

    [​IMG]Thunder Force Series: (imbue)
    lvl 80 I use fire imbue instead, but don’t move on so quickly, you will
    be using this imbue at lvl 90 most likely, so you can up it now or
    wait. It looks awesome with bicheon skills too .
    Also, the splash given by the lightning imbue will transfer status
    effects from your lightning chain bicheon skill. Lightning imbue will
    shock the enemies, which reduces their parry ratio, therefore they take
    harder hits, but its almost always pilled off or resisted due to
    Sp to max: 21,769sp

    [​IMG]Piercing Force Series:
    Increases your magic damage done, what else do you need? MAX IT!!!! NO CHOICES HERE!
    Sp cost: 5,892 sp

    [​IMG]Wind Walk Series:
    offers both moving speed when you run, but also a ghost walk in which u
    move super fast, near instantaneously to a distance away. Starting at
    10meter and capping at 22meters at lvl 80, it is very usefull. Max
    grasswalk ghost walk will be faster than the outdated lvl 60 horse.
    Sp to max the whole series: 25,521 sp no cut backs here

    [​IMG]Lion Shout series:
    used much in pvp unless your one shotting a noob…dam you noob killers.
    But its amazing for grinding because it’s a super quick attack with
    good power, better than overkilling a mob by 7k damage with a nuke and
    wasting 3 more secs of casting time. Looped over many mobs, you saved
    yourself A LOT of time.
    Sp to max: 20,082sp No cut backs here either.

    [​IMG]Concentration series:
    increases your parry ratio which will help you to take less damage from
    enemies, who doesn’t wana live longer? GET IT! Although at the higher
    lvls its increase in parry slows dramatically. Recommended to max it,
    but not maxing it by 2 lvl will save u some sp and only lose 1 parry,
    for a total of 30.
    Sp to max: 14,058
    Economical cut: 9,647 sp (you lose 1 parry but gain 4.5k sp )

    [​IMG]Thunderbolt Force Series:
    effective nuke, It bounces in a 10m range to hit multiple foes max of
    3, great for grinding and group fights. Max this because this will be a
    huge damage dealer at lvl 80, and your main damage nuke at lvl 90.
    Sp to max: 21,725

    [​IMG]Hevean’s Force Series (Passive):
    Passive that increases your parry ratio..helps you take less damage, and it’s a passive, so its foolish not to max it.
    Sp to max: 5,844

    [​IMG]IV. LVL 80 Fire

    Fire: mastery from 0-80 is going to cost 44,826 sp
    lvl 80, fire is a possible use, but will be likely dropped at 90 . Fire
    offers you massive damage with the nukes and imbue, and status
    immunity, and mag defense, plus phy damage buff which will help your
    damage when u crit/hit with bicheon skils.

    [​IMG]Fire Force Series:
    highest damage imbue with a status effect of burn, that does DoT, but
    can be pilled off. I Almost always use this imbue at lvl 80 because of
    its sheer power. Max it.
    Sp to max: 21,769

    [​IMG]Fire Shield Series:
    the effect lvl of status’ like burn and electric shock, and most
    importantly, freeze. Max this and combined with good blues on jewelry,
    you will be immune to everything. I have not used a single pill in like
    5 months because my jewelry always keeps me immune.
    Sp to max: 6,817

    [​IMG]Flame Body Series:
    your physical attack. Useless to help your nukes, but you’re a hybrid,
    and in pvp or against mobs your going to use bicheons skills, so
    physical damage increase DOES HELP, especially when you crit.
    Sp to max: 5,033
    Lvl 1 of the third book in this series (only 7% increase): 7,286 (not recommended but available)

    [​IMG]Fire Protection Series.
    your magical defense. Every Chinese character does a large amount of
    magical attack, even pure strs. So this is extremely useful, especially
    against those dam nukers.
    Sp to max: 20,082 sp

    [​IMG]Fire Wall Series:
    Make a wall of fire that will absorb magical damage. IMO, totally useless and a waste of sp
    Sp cost: 0

    Some noob wizard thinks hes a hot shot cuz he can use invisible and is
    too afraid for a little 1 on 1? Pop a fire wall and his first hit is
    worthless. Enough time hopefully to kill him before he kills you.

    [​IMG]Flame Wave Series:
    fire nukes, extremely powerful and deadly. You need to max the first
    book to get the fourth book, and the second book is the most powerful
    nuke until lvl 77 when the 3rd book, Flame Wave Wide, if your
    strongest nuke by far. Flame Wave bomb, the new and fourth book in this
    series, is a bit of a weaker nuke, but its cast time is super fast,
    making it useful for a quick kill on a lower lvl, a horse running by,
    or a good finisher on a mob.
    Sp to max: 58,728 sp

    [​IMG]Fire Combustion series:
    invisible and stealth players, such as the rouge and wizard. Or you can
    just use the potions from the NPC in town. I do not have this skill
    because my sp was better suited elsewhere.
    Sp to max: 11,564
    Alternative: 0 sp

    [​IMG]Flame Devil Force Series: (passive)
    Increases your physical damage. Helpful in pvp when your using bicheon skills and especially when you crit.
    Sp to max: 5,844

    [​IMG]V. LVL 80 Cold

    Although it says lvl 80 Cold, your mastery is only going to be 60 when you are lvl 80, hence, lvl 80 cold.

    Cold: mastery from 0-60 is going to cost 12,764 sp
    leave cold at lvl 60 because IMO the more damage from fire at 80 is
    better. Lvl 60 cold is its biggest boost so far in stats, so ice from
    lvl 1-59 is out of the picture, its a waste of sp and mastery skills to
    have it anything below. Lvl 60 allows a nice def buff from the passive
    and cold armor, and the ice shield will do a 40% absorbtion, which is
    more than enough atm.

    [​IMG]Cold Force Series:
    use this imbue, fire or lightning outshine this imbue any time. People
    like it for grinding, but mobs are weak and theres no need to freeze
    them since you’re a nuker and should kill them off exceptionally fast.
    Sp: 0

    [​IMG]Frost Guard Series:
    Buff that increases your physical defense. Relatively low and weak until lvl 60 where it will get a big increase.
    Sp to lvl 60: 6,422

    [​IMG]Cold Wave Attack series:
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] [​IMG]
    cold effect to targets. Usless or just a little fun for now, but
    potential at higher lvls where immunity to effects will become harder
    and harder since fire shield stop getting lvls.
    Recommended Sp for now: 0

    [​IMG]Frost Wall Series
    Puts up a wall of ice that absorbs physical damage, IMO its useless, just like Fire Wall is, so i suggest no points be added.
    Sp: 0

    With euros out, fire wall and Ice wall are no longer totally useless.
    Some noob rouge running around thinking hes a hot shot in invis? Pop up
    any ice wall and his first attack is useless against you. Enough time
    to locate him, phantom and kill hopefully.

    [​IMG]Frost Nova Series:
    to use because if someone isn’t immune, they can get frozen before
    pilling it off and it will interrupt them. Useful later on as immunity
    to ice will become harder to get.
    Recommended now: lvl 1 of each book: 416 sp

    [​IMG]Snow Storm Series:
    ice nukes, at lvl 60 they are extremely weak since your lvl 80, and
    have no use until lvl 90 when ice will become a maxed mastery.
    Sp for now: 0
    or get lvl 1 of each book: 612 sp

    [​IMG]Snow Shield Series:
    Absorbs damage and reduces mana instead. At lvl 60 it will offer you a 40% absorbtion. Plenty until lvl 90 comes.
    Sp to max to 60: 4,061

    [​IMG]Cold Armor Series: (passive)
    Passive that increases your physical defense, very useful especially when a str glaiver crits you.
    Sp to max to 60: 1,680

    [​IMG]VI. Lvl 80 Gear[​IMG]

    forgot, what are you going to wear?! Can’t go out naked now can you.
    Obviously your going to be using a sword and a shield. At least 5’ed
    when your capped. Crit IS important on your sword, because crits on kds
    hurt and could make you win that much faster. Accessories and weapons
    should go without saying, its mainly the body you need to be concerned
    with. At lower lvl grinding, garments more than suffice, at 60
    grinding, armor comes in handy, then in the 8th degree use a combo of
    armor and protector, finishing your tier off with full protector set.
    You can get by with 8th degree garms, but it is still extremely tough
    against str players. However, I will admit I DO wear garms…..i sold all
    my sosun protector >.<. I always thought a str glaiver would pwn
    me in my 4 garms, but I have yet to find a glaiver up to the challenge.

    These are pics of my sword and shield. All hand crafted by me, and my stones.
    - Resim Silinmiş.- Resim Silinmiş.- Resim Silinmiş.

    VII. LVL 90 Intro

    At 90, I suggest, for now:

    in the lvl 80 guide, I have already explained the use of the skills, so
    here, unless there is something new, I will just give you the sp cost
    for lvl 80-90 or 60-90 for cold.

    VIII.LVL 90 Bicheon

    Bicheon: sp for lvl 80-90: 29,680
    Bicheon will become even better at lvl 90, there is a new kd and a new stab, and you can now do a QUINTUPLE STAB!!! (5 stabs).

    [​IMG]Smashing series: From maxed (lvl 5) to maxed lvl 90 (lvl 10) costs 15,104 sp

    [​IMG]Lightning chain from lvl 80-90 costs 15,104 sp

    [​IMG]Iron Wall: costs 8,746 sp

    [​IMG]Blade Force Series: 15,629sp

    [​IMG]Hidden blade series (both the 3rd and 4th books): 24,798

    [​IMG]Killing Heaven Blade Series (both the 3rd and 4th stabs): 9167

    [​IMG]Shield Protection Series (Passive): 3,547

    IX. LVL 90 Cold

    Cold:lvl 60-90 costs 61,742 sp
    Huge boost in buffs from lvl 60 to 90, but this tree is gona be expensive because it’s a 30 lvl increase instead of only 10.

    [​IMG]Frost Guard Series:31,556 sp

    lvl 80, we left Cold Wave Attack and Frost Nova Series empty or
    releatively empty. However, now at lvl 90, the fire shield buff is
    still only lvl 69, and therefore ice immunity, or any immunity becomes
    harder. Granted it can be pilled off, if they have pills, but freezing
    an opponent will interrupt them, even if for only a second, and could
    potentially save your life. Plus who knows, could come in handy for

    [​IMG]Cold Wave Attack Series: 25,712sp

    [​IMG]Frost Nova Series: 47,514 sp

    [​IMG]Snow Storm Series:
    Now that you no longer have fire nukes, your going to need these nukes for grinding.
    Sp cost: 66,462 (0->90)

    [​IMG]Snow Shield Series: 19,671 sp

    [​IMG]Cold Armor Series (Passive): 6,985 sp

    X. LVL 90 Lightning

    Lightning: 29,680 sp to go from lvl 80-90

    [​IMG]Thunder Force Series:
    Lvl 0-90: 36,873
    Lvl 80-90: 15,104

    [​IMG]Piercing Force Series: 3,336

    [​IMG]Wind Walk Series: 12,188

    [​IMG]Lion Shout Series: 15,104

    [​IMG]Concentration Series: 9378 sp

    [​IMG]Thunderbolt Force Series: 12,293sp

    [​IMG]Heavens Force Series (Passive): 3,547 sp

    XI. LVL 90 Fire

    Even though it says lvl 90 fire, your going to have lvl 0 fire, but this is the plan in this guide for your fire tree at lvl 90.

    here is the rather annoying part about this build, deleveling fire.
    Your gona miss it, I know, but I gotta get rid of it. Luckily, this is
    extra sp for you. And don’t worry, it wont cost too much gold…I hope 

    as it is now, pimped in skills up to lvl 80, costs 163,106 sp. Using
    skill potions from the item mall will get you that much sp, however,
    using curst hearts will give you 80% of that sp. I highly sugest, if
    its possible, to use item mall potions for the high lvls of fire, then
    finish it with curst hearts. I plan on using item mall potions for lvl
    80->70 and then curst hearts the rest of the way.

    Many lvl
    80s are stuck with this problem...no mastery room for lvl 90, so if you
    are going to make a new char, decide if you want lvl 80 fire now, or
    just wait until lvl 90 since it is most likely Christmas time, as the
    best estimates go. Its up to you.

    XII. Lvl 90 alternative

    At lvl 90 you have 30 left over masteries with 3 maxed masteries. You can choose fire,heuksal, pacheon, or force.

    matter what you choose, its not going to be outstanding because it is
    only lvl 30. Fire will give you some mag def, phy dmg, and fire shield.
    Heuksal will give you extra hp. Pacheon will give you attack rating,
    and force will give you…well…nothing. The choice is yours, and it can
    be easily changed. Don’t expect much from this lvl 30 mastery, I will
    likely choose heuksal for the HP. -Update- The issue of status immunity
    has been brought up numerous times by people and friends, and even in
    this topic, so i started thinking about it. Ice could be your worse
    enemy with no fire. Perhaps lvl 30 just for fire shield doesn't look so
    bad after all.

    [​IMG]XIII. Lvl 90 Gear[​IMG]
    lvl 90, your going to ditch your 8th degree protector for 9th degree
    garms. Now that you have cold lvl 90 and all that bonus physical
    defense, you can wear garms to compensate for the loss of the magic
    defense buff in the fire tree. Garms also have 20% moving speed and 20%
    mana reduction, both of these help. First you will be super fast, not
    to run, but to hunt down your cowardly foes as they flee from your
    unstoppable rampage!!!!!:). The mana reduction also helps a lot because
    mana is very important when you have snow shield on and your getting
    hit a lot, nukes are mana heavy and you really don’t want to run out of
    mana. In every way possible, at lvl 90, garments compliment your

    XIV. Stats
    still a nuker, so your still mostly int. I suggest keeping your magic
    balance between 85%and 90% WHEN YOUR NAKED!!!. Always determine your
    balances naked, never with any bonus to stats. Decide what you want,
    more magic attack, and magic defense and mp, or more physical attack,
    phy defense, and hp, and then adjust your balance between 85% and 90%
    accordingly. If your magic balance goes too much above 90%, you become
    a weak hybrid and too much like pure int, more like a confused hybrid.

    lvl 90, as brought up by [AoW]ForLife, dropping fire is a significant
    loss of damage, and as a result I would like to add that for lvl 90,
    there should be a bigger focus for a higher magic balance. The extra
    int will help your damage. I was thinking of possibly 10-15lvls of str
    at lvl 90 is gona be adequate enough hybrid without losing too much
    damage from int.

    XV. How To Use

    can not tell you how to use your character, instead I will just give
    advice and tell what I do, hopefully you will read it and use some of
    it to make your own style. Its very hard to screw up using skills while
    grinding or pvp.

    grinding, you should be using nukes MOST OF THE TIME. Against a single
    monster, use a nuke, and depending on how much damage you do is gona
    decide your next move. If your nuke does most of their hp, use one or 2
    lion shouts. If you find 2 lion shouts is not enough damage, then I
    suggest using 2 nukes, and if 2 nukes are overkill, use one powerful
    nuke and a flame wave bomb nuke (fast but weaker) If you do not have
    flame wave bomb, and 2 nukes seems over kill but 2 lion shouts leaves
    some alive, I suggest different mobs. Ideally, as a nuker you can be
    fighting high orange / red mobs. Grinding is all about grinding
    EFFICIENCY, without grinding efficiency, you will lvl much slower.
    Killing with 2 nukes is ideal, its still a fast kill, and the mobs
    should be a good deal higher, so u get good exp. An occasional lion
    shout after 2 nukes is fine, but you don’t want to be 3 or 4 nuking
    regular mobs. When you see a rather tight group of mobs, use a ghost
    walk into the crowd, and use petal sword dance, this will agro at least
    3 mobs to you and probably more because mobs close to the agroed mobs
    now come. Then follow up with lightning nukes for radius damage, and
    flame wave wide/burning (your fire nukes that hit multiple people) or
    with your ice storms. You should quickly kill multiple enemies with
    splash damage and roll in the exp. Nukers are great at crowd control
    and with a shield, you shouldn’t have problems with mobs at higher
    lvls. When it comes to party monsters and giants, use KDs and chains
    because they have the largest source of damage, more than nukes (but
    nukes start from a range, so using kd on every mob wastes time running
    up to them to kd). The reason they do more damage is because kds hit
    fast, and when the target is on the ground, you can follow up with
    stabs which are really fast and powerful attacks. At lvl 80, spamming
    kd and stabs on a giant kills it much faster than spamming nukes.
    HOWEVER, use nukes on giants if other mobs are around, because area
    damage will kill those mobs and you get basic free kills from your
    radius damage while pounding a giant. Also, use lightning chain on
    giants, casting division or bleed can be very helpful in taking it down

    PvP is
    your own style, do what you feel comfortable with, but KD’s in pvp are
    the best. Use nukes sparingly. And don’t forget to use your ice shield
    if you need to stay alive. Ignore the noobs who complain about it, they
    just can’t stand not being able to kill a nuker in pvp.

    XVI. SP Recap

    I will compile all the sp amounts for you, so you can get the big
    picture without scrolling through my overstuffed guide. The counts are
    only approximate depending on if you want to follow some of the
    economic alternatives to sp or not. Give or take some sp depending on
    what you choose.

    Lvl 80 cap:
