I am an old returning player (SS), I should have read this before putting my skill back when I used to have it. Anyway thanks for the guide. A lot has changed so thanks for the guide.

Also this may be out of place but at what level box do you get skill resets?

93, the final one. You get a jobchange scroll and unlimited reset scroll.

Feel free to ask questions :) Have a good day

Thank you :)

I noticed a lot of changes in the skill build particularly PPB as I usually max that due my prior expierience and I know its not leveled due to SP problems but is it a good trade to get it still since I find myself uncomfortable with the toggle MM playstyle atm.

Also tried out the Cannon Blaster awakening and it feels...clunky. Like really clunky, do you need to use the skill to get the demolition cd reduction or does it just reduce demo cd by 10 flat?

As a point of reference, my old gear is geared around Ice-SS using the elem def reduction on chem grenade and the ice def reduction on ice pump but given what I have seen there is not enough SP anymore to get ice pump if I try out hte MM route.

In regards to PPB, it is really horrible now with better options, especially when we compare the SP required for that. If we compare the cast times, Splash would deal more damage in a shorter amount of time. If we play it that way, we could save tons of SP not leveling PPB at all. The bounce damage would only be useful in clearing stuff easily when you are extremely geared. However, overall, I would not recommend it at all.

I agree with the Cannon Blaster. I usually would use that when the boss is doing something which does not allow me to attack. It is very useful if you get into habit of casting it whenever idle, as it works by a flat -10 seconds off Demo's CD. Demo being extremely strong now contributes significantly to the SS' DPS.

The Ice Pump ele reduction does not work anymore due to changes of the whole -ele resist mechanics. Towers are no longer useful for an SS due to the changes made to Alfredo, which requires a level of control versus pre-awakening SS. In this case, I would suggest against going for towers. MM is still necessary to boost Alfredo and Demolition damage though.
