This is a special build for those who like to be unique compared to the others.
Why be a strength bandit?
Well ever noticed how daggers are classified on many websites as Dagger/Cutters? Well the Cutter means STR Daggers, which are noticeable faster than LUK Daggers. Why? Because even though they don't have the same speed. They are just faster. I mean compare the bow to the crossbow. The Bow and Crossbow mainly have Normal Speed, but everyone knows that the bow shoots faster than the crossbow. The same theory is applied to the dagger/cutter rule ;]
Ok make a character and have these stats:
Any are fine for the others. But I prefer that STR is 5~8.
For the first few levels you should get your DEX to 25 then put 1 or 2 points into STR and the rest into Luck
Here is the main way you do your stats BEFORE LEVEL 40
STR: Your Level - 10 = your STR
DEX: Your Level x 2 = your DEX
LUK: The remainder of your points
AFTER LEVEL 40
STR: Level - 10 still (unconfirmed of the higher levels STR dagger requirement)
DEX: +1 per level
Ok, so for level 1-10 Training here is what I did:
1-4 Stay in the place where the 1EXP monsters won't hit you. This is slow training and no mesos gained, but there is no downtime because they can't hit you.
5-7 Try green snails blue snails if you have 7 or 8 STR. Otherwise stick with green.
8-10 Stay in maple island! I can't stress that much to new players. It will be remarkably less KS'ers in maple island compared to Victoria. If things are remarkably slow try to do some of the Maple Island quests and if your really bored go up for a challenge with Orange Mush quests.
The skills don't really matter so I'm not going to put them.
After when you hit level 10, go to Victoria and become a rogue ASAP ;]
You'll get a noticeable increase in your HP and MP and will have another skill book and more inventory space!
10-14 Slimes and Orange Mushes if you have a Garnier. If not continue smacking snails.
15-19 Get a Garnier or a Titan, your choice and try to do HPQ. If that doesn't work go to the Slime Tree and train there.
20-25 Do HPQ, many people will want you and KPQ, if you can find people to do it with you. But if you'd rather go training, try going to Pig Beach or 2 maps east of henesys and kil Ribbon and Normal Pigs
25-27 If your still training go to the Bubblings. They give same amount of EXP as green mushrooms and it's less crowded then HHG1 otherwise KPQ. Try to do Maya's quest or get a Brown Bamboo Hat as it will help you a lot. Otherwise get a Green or Blue bamboo hat. It's your choice ;]
28-30 If you want to make some profits go KPQ. Trust me scrolls are worth 100k+ (especially 10% Overall Dex ones) But if not just go to Ant Tunnel to train. Bubblings are still good, and you could try those stirges too!
