UPDATE :
IMPORTANT - Lv50 Build excesses 1 SP, max SP in our server is 91, you can have take 1 SP on your personal preference.


BEFORE FOLLOWING THE BUILD
  • Level 40 build is dedicated to follow until you reach Lv50, meaning even if you are Lv45~>49 you will still won't be able to use Ultimate & Gear Master Skills.
  • If you wanted to gain access to the Ultimate & Gear Master Skills during Lv40~>49, you will need a Reset Scroll in the end.
  • The Lv50~>Lv60 requires a Reset Scroll
  • DESCRIPTIONS ARE SOMEWHAT REPEATING BUT THERE ARE SOME THERE THAT HAS BEEN CHANGED. DONT GET BORED READING.
  • Please bare with my wrong grammars, I'm not good at English.

T4 Lv40 Gear Master PVE

Posted Image

The T4 is very tricky when it comes to building up skills, because it requires a certain SP needed to spend on the Class Skill Tier to able to level up a skill in the Next Class Skill Tier.

IF YOU WANT TO GAIN ACCESS TO THE ULTIMATE & GEAR MASTER SKILLS BUT YOU'RE NOT Lv50 YET, YOU WILL NEED RESET SCROLL

WE WILL FOCUS ON LEVELING SKILLS

Academic Skill TIER
I maximize the needed skill from Academic Skill Tier while spending the minimum SP as possible.
SP needed to learn Lv32 Engineer Skills : 35

Its your choice to add Force Out OR Bubble Bubble(depending on player's preference) now or later.

Final SP if added : SP 38

Engineer Skill TIER

Max Ice Tower Only
  • Gatling Tower & Cannon Tower are not needed because when you reach Lv50 you will be able to summon 1 Ice Tower & 2 Chainsaw Tower
Max Ping Pong Shot
  • THIS. (cool)
Max Mine Thrower
  • Superb damage to large enemies
Max Damage Transition
  • Great buff, recommended to max for raids
Max Bio Chem Missile
  • Cool debuff and superb damage too.
Lv6 Mecha Duck
  • Decent launching damage & prerequisite for Mecha Duck EX
Lv5 Mecha Shock
  • Decent damage & prerequisite for Lv6 Mecha Duck EX
Max Mecha Bomber
  • Superb Damage x 3 mecha ducks
Lv41~49 Leveling
  • If Level Up is available for the above said skills, level it up.

  • Leveled Up the Lv40 skills to reach the 45 SP requirement except for MANA UP
Engineer Skill TIER

Note : for better summoning of Chainsaw Tower, CD plate is recommended. (:])

Got a question.

1. What will be the CD of chainsaw w/ Epic chainsaw plate cd be?

2. Have you actually tried big mecha bomber, even on other servers?

3. If you have tried BIG mecha bomber. Does it requires a duck to be used or can this skill be casted without an actual duck on the field?

4. Is chainsaw tower has more range and hit box than gatling tower?

5. What path will you choose, Gearmerster or Shootingstar? ^_^

Based on v2s3raph, it's not worth maxing gravity.

Though the suction makes a good holding skill for Chainsaw and Gatling to be more effective.

ah yea, I noticed chainsaw tower has low accuracy for mid to small size moving monsters.
is it only me or the chain saw tower is kinda low than I expected.. I expected it would deal damage like 25k per hit,, it only came to me like 12k per hit

while my canon tower has 15-17k damge lv6

Really? Chainsaw has been doing fine for me. Around more than 20k per crit. The first time I tested it, soloing Manti Norm, it reached somewhere between 20-30+k a crit. Also tested it earlier on the Mimic boss (Abyss) and it did 22k-25k per crit.

Is it really worth it to max Bio Chem and Mine Thrower? My build is pretty similar to yours, but i have pvp skills (flash grenade, bubble lvl 3, air drop)

y u no lvl gatling tower? 2 chainsaw towers+ice pump? u still have to wait for 13.2 secs CD of chainsaw tower to summon the second one. in that 13.2secs you will only have 2 towers up. and gatling tower can fill that gap. gatling tower is 12 secs duration.

example:

u summon gatling, chainsaw and ice pump
after 12 secs, gatling is gone
after 13.2 secs, chainsaw CD is finished
so u summon chainsaw

= MAX DPS

= MAX DPS
because when doing long nest, and continues tower summon, you will end up replacing 1 chainsaw or ice pump for gatling,
so hard to explain @.@

plus i dont think 15SP points just to cover the CD time of chainsaw is good, might actually use the maxed out mine thrower and focus on ducks mecha bomber & cast the big mecha bomb

lol its hard to explain so I made I graph.
orange represent chainsaw
blue represent icetower
red represent gatling

Posted Image

the thick border represent the time you can have the 2 chainsaw tower simultaneously.
with the gatling, it is not consistent plus it ruin the stacking and the ice tower is affected.

your choice, this will cost you 14SP if you plan maxing gatling.
