Azure Cloud Guide [Grandeur Build aka Single Targetting]

Post by xanatos on 11.06.09 10:11

Azure Cloud [Single Targetting AC Guide][Def Sword Build]
-> original by me Xanatos


This guide focuses on the following:
-enhanced single target skills' damage
-enhanced Soul Flash
-above average protection
-high damage


-The Skills-
Young Pally
Heavy Atk 2
Vigilance 6 or maxed out depending on whether you want to conserve points or not
Total: 8

Cult 1 Notes
-Maxed out Passive skills.




Cult 2 Notes
-Pure Heart 1 or maxed out.
If the def gears later in the game really go as high as 4 digits based on screenies/videos found in some sites,
maxing out Pure Heart has a great advantage since it's a percentage increase and not an exact number.

Pure Heart @ max level -> Duration: 30 secs Def: +6% CD: 120 secs

-Swift Strike
2 or maxed out depends on your playing style.
Higher level means lower CD and higher chance of removing speed reduc debuffs

-Dawn Sword Grandeur
Immobilization skill. The level depends on your playing style. It is practical to spend skill points
on this since you're forced to get the Heavenly Book point that enhances this skill to acquire
stronger Def Sword points.

-Holy Sword Grandeur
Disabling skill, high chance of reducing your target's MP to 0. Again, this depends on your playing style.
Personally, I'd rather invest my Heaven book points on other stuff than the one that enhances this skill.



Cult 3 Notes
-Maxed out Passive skills.

Fortify (Passive Defense) -> for consideration
-Again, as I've said earlier, if the def gears indeed go up as high as 4 digits, why bother allocating
on a passive buff that gives your character a measly total of +41 def. However, if you are the type of player
wherein every point of defense counts, max this out.




Cult 4 Notes
-Maxed out Grandeur Skills
-Maxed out Soul Flash, 1 hitter.

Frost Shell skill level -> for consideration
-Allocate 3, to unlock the next skill. Why not max it out? Skill description says that the spellcaster can't
attack or move. However, the usage of skills is not clearly stated.

Malediction
-I honestly have no idea if this is going to be effective or not. The skill description is awesome though.



Cult 5 Notes
-Maxed out Crit Rate+ Buff, no further explanation needed.
-Get whatever skills you want, you'll be needing them in order to continously cast in combat since the
AC's best skill has a 90 sec CD.




Heavenly Book
[size="4"]Defend Sword Tab -> 21 Karma Points[/size]

Karma Points left 48-21 = 27

Notes
-Damage, damage, and more damage for your single target attacks.


Restore Vitality Tab


Notes
-No Congruence aka +hp for every point allocated on passive skills. Why? It looks very good at first, however,if
health points for every character reach as high as 5 digits later in game, +1240HP (+40 hp for each passive point
at lvl 2) is kind of negligible.

-Soul Fortress enhances absorption for the MP shield -> 4 Karma Points Total

-Get Moral Fortitude until Soul Song -> 7 Karma Points Total
Soul Song increases Soul Flash's attack power and greatly enhances the crit damage of Dragon Sword Grandeur

-Get Inner Soul until Berserker Fury -> 12 Karma Points Total
Last ditch attack on damaging your opponents, huge AoE around self.

Total Points Spent on Restore vitality Tab = 23
Karma Points left 27-23 = 4

Things to consider:
-Getting the whole Healing Ward to Heart of Purity line (Can't max out Heart of Purity to 3),5 Karma Points
->increases damage by a percentage after casting buffs
->greatly increase survivability of your character since Buff CD is greatly reduced
->Soul Flash would have a lower CD too

-Getting Swift Blade(reduce single target spells' CD) at the Defend Sword tab, 2 Karma Points.
->continuous casting

-Getting Dispel Knack(increase talisman atk power) at the Defend Sword Tab, 3 Karma Points
->we all know the famous dice talisman. Well, this theoretically increases the talisman skill's
attack power


Additional Notes on the Azure Cloud class
-inefficient botting class unless you got good equipment.
-small base HP is compensated with damage absorbing buffs.
-AoE killing with an AC easily efficiently accomplishes family quests/leveling/leeching/farming
-skill graphics are awesome


Skill Simulator used is found at:
http://www.gamebase.com.tw/zone/zx/talent/guidao/index.php

Another Skill Simulator:
http://game.online-station.net/zhuxian


*Update*
Get your hands on a Soul Defender Phylac and get a x12 modifier to Immortal Guardian and not just x8. plus.. the chance for extreme def blessing becomes 24% and not just 16%. It's selling for around 1k gold in ZXph Jade. Already buffed up? Switch to Heaven Slayer phylac or Dragon Slayer phylac then fire away your grandeur skills.

Important Notes:
Frost Shell.. indeed forbids you to use skills or even move at all. However, at max level you get almost +4k def for 12 secs and it'll also heal you. Good for combining with other buffs to absorb the dreaded hit and run BB.

Getting Soul Restore at lv 1 just to activate the 6%+ skill dmg for 6 secs.. if you plan on getting the corresponding heavenly skill.
Comments/Questions/Suggestions are welcome :cheers: Smile

actually, sabi sabi kasi 1 hitter skill ung Soul Flash ng AC. pwede rin mag AoE build with Soul Flash din, but there are other powerful skills under the grandeur skill tree.

additional info lang sa guide ko na to, may rumors rin kasi na malakas ung Berserker Fury ung expend hp/mp for AoE damage under the heavenly skill tab.. this build has it, although, need pa ng further info on it dahil nag dedepend lang ako sa skill descriptions and some dmg approximations and not hard evidence like actual damages and videos/pics of the said skill in action.

I think you should really max out soul flash, because it is also a powerful single hit attack. Its also good for PVPs

Sorry, I forgot to mention that the skill simulator that I used was kind of buggy and did not allow me to allocate points after the Frost Shell skill.

Though, I did mention to max out Soul Flash, and also recommended getting its corresponding Heavenly Book Modifier.

As for the Malediction thing, really not sure if it'll be useful. Skill description is awesome though.

HOT TIP..
masyado kong minaliit ung soul restore.. mga kapwa kong AC, malaki pala matitipid natin pag combined with its corresponding heavenly book modifier + its phylactery.. since sobrang liit ng bigay ng kada bagsak ng mp pots.. ung soul restore kaya magbgay 10k+ mp sa isang gamitan daw. good for a pure lvling/PVE build..
