Introduction:
Hello, welcome to the path of the Acrobats. This guide is just a mere summary of the topics that have been discussed at this acrobat thread.  I noticed a lot questions being posted that have been answered or discussed on another thread. I hope this would help shed some light on Acrobats, especially the newbies.

93 cap changes:
93 cap somehow managed to revive the Acrobat class from its long slumber.  The Acrobat class in general suffered a lot of nerfs on the previous caps which made most of the Lagendia community discriminate the class.

The most noteworthy and game changing update in both Acrobat job classes is the introduction of Air Currents or AC for short [ACs in plural]. The introduction of this Acrobat bubble system managed to lessen the gap on Acrobat class discrimination. It also managed to improve the DPS output of the Acrobat classes.

Gears:

Greedy Rune Dragon Legend > Evolved Ice Dragon Legend > Ice Dragon Legend > Red Dragon Legend >= Rune Dragon Unique (perfect stats) > 93 Unique (obsession and ultimate) > 90 Ice Dragon Unique >= 93 Epic > 90 Epic  > others

Notes:
  • It is probably better to invest for Rune Dragon Uniques (with perfect stats) than with Legend RDN. Since enhancement transfer is available for RuDN Uniques.

For more information you can check this thread, see Gears.


Best 3rd Stat Option to Invest aside from Final Damage (AGI vs Physical Attack)

As mentioned above AGI is the best 3rd stat to invest to if you cannot afford Final Damage (FD).

Here are some points why:
· 1 AGI = 0.75 Physical Attack (PAttack)
· Spiritual Excel gives 50% increase in AGI
· AGI also increases Critical Chance and Critical resist [?] as Physical Attack only increases Attack Power, nothing else.


Air Current Priority:
Windwalkers
PvE: AC Blooming Kick (AC BK)
PvP: AC Rising Storm [?] (AC RS)


Tempest
PvE: AC Punch Smash (AC PS)
PvP: AC PS (for damage), AC Hurricane Dance (AC HD) [for Invulnerability]


DPS Sequence/Skill Rotations

Windwalker:
Fourier's DPS Sequence:
Blooming Kick > Air Pounce > AC Bloomng Kick > Flash Kick,

And there's also Eagle Dive > DSK > Air Pounce
or Rising Storm > Cyclone Kick INS > Air Pounce

FirePhoenix's DPS Sequences:
with 100 ACs: BK (left click) > Air Pounce [AP] x1 > AC BK (Left click) > AC BK (Left click) > Enhanced Spiral Edge [ESE].
BK (left click) > AP x1 > AC BK (Left click) if less than 100 AC and ESE is not available
Raising storm > Flash kick > Cyclone kick Ins > ED > DSK

Tempests:
A Powerful Skill Rotation: click link


Air Current Skills Comparison

Air Current Skill Comparison Calculator
Note:
  • does not include damage multipliers such as Critical Damage, Elemental and FD
  • computation reference, see links on the google sheet
Air Current Skill Priorities Comparison [link]
AC Punch Smash :
+ Has +50% atk from Tempest's CM1
- Is not a damage amp skill, so Tempest only contribute damage amp from Binding Shot EX
- Has no skill accessories
- Has no damage plate

AC Blooming Kick :
+ Has extra 30% dmg from flip kick
- Has only +20% atk from WW CM2
+ Damage debuff is stackable with the normal BK's. (Stackable Debuff has been fixed as of November 2016 Patch)
+ Has +1/+2 (+10%/+~17%) from skill ring/ cash heraldry
+ Has +20% damage plate

Skill Build Notes (PvE)
Windwalker:
  • Max Air Pounce, since it will be spammed.
  • It is not necessary to max Spiral Kick [SK] (And take SK Awakening)
  • Spam Flash Kick to farm ACs
Skill Builds:
Windwalker: Tempest: (Suggested) Skill Plates: [link][link]
Windwalker:
Spirit Boost cooldown reduction

Showtime additional duration
Blooming Kick addition damage
Spiral Edge additional damage / Rising Storm additional damage

Tempest:
Spirit Boost cooldown reduction
Binding Shot additional damage
Double Somersault Kick additional damage
Divine Rage additional damage

Blooming Kick additional damage [link]


Element:
Any element is applicable as Elemental Converter Jades (ECJs) does not depend on your class, but rather on your budget. Check this thread for more idea

I think that is all for this General Acrobat guide. I hope I did not miss anything, but if I did, kindly inform so I could edit ^^

I hope this helped you!


Rise like the Storm and Dance with the Hurricane! (;])

Yes, I kinda agree, LRDN is much needed to enter IDN (8-man).

If this makes it better, LRD can be transferred to LID with a -2. So the investment for LRD is still feasible.

Hi Inchik, I have added a new portion called DPS sequence, I hope that might help.
I am also curious with your question, I reviewed the Acrobat thread and found nobody posted about that yet. Only found those DPS Sequence. (Hope it helps :D)

regarding the damage debuff stacking, I doubt it stacks any more since the latest patch. I might be wrong tho, haven't been playing much, but I vaguely recall someone explicitly mentioning BK and AC BK debuffs not stacking

o here it is! tho no proof or whatever so it'd be good if someone can help confirm

Hi Evellyn, there were no other forumers on the acrobat discussion thread regarding pure pvp build. (Tho, IIRC, you posted one, I'll recheck later.)

Here is mine, it is rather a hybrid build. It works for me in both pve and pvp scenarios. Hope this helps! :D

Thanks! (:]) Welcome to the path of the wind!

I'm still finding precious time to update some infos here. (T.T)
No recent updates from the acrobat thread yet, so I think everything compiled is still up to date ^^
