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.
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
- 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:
PvE: AC Blooming Kick (AC BK)
PvP: AC Rising Storm [?] (AC RS)
PvE: AC Punch Smash (AC PS)
PvP: AC PS (for damage), AC Hurricane Dance (AC HD) [for Invulnerability]
DPS Sequence/Skill Rotations
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
