=========================================
A. Introduction
=========================================
You've found yourself at the introduction. It's really really boring, why don't you just skip ahead.
s.

This guide keeps you covered from level 30+. No, it does not help you with 1st job, 1st job builds, or 1st job skills. The guide is not designed to replace the various warrior encyclopedias that are around the forums, as you can see it is designed to cover things other guides don't and put direct emphasis on them. For example, my guide doesn't have stat point builds. Why? Well, we have those in other guides; there is no reason for me to restate them. However, it does tell you about the controversial skill, Threaten, and covers some common Page misconceptions, as well as the elements we can take control of. This guide covers no pre-warrior information or anything before lvl 30.

I made this not with numbers or charts, but with paragraphs. Paragraphs full of information. Not too many lines of builds, mostly just plain Page/Knight information to answer most of your questions.

Please accept the fact that its quite small and lacking in some topics.
=========================================
B. Quick Points on the Page
=========================================
For those of you choosing to become a Page, please keep the following points in mind.

Point #1. Pages are said to be the weakest of the 3 different warrior types in 2nd job. I will not dispute this. Our unique Threaten skill loses out to the unique Rage skill of Fighters, and the unique Hyper Body skill of Spearmen.

Point #2: Pages do not get elemental charges in 2nd job. Many people convert to Pages thinking this. If you want our flashy elemental charges, you're going to have to wait until the 3rd job.

Point #3: Pages choose between two weapons, swords and blunt weapons. We cannot wield axes, remember that.

Point #4: We get an MP boost upon job advancement, not an HP boost.

Point #5: Out of the three warrior classes, Pages are the least picked in parties and party quests. This is because we are the only class without a party skill.



=========================================
C. Weapons of the Page
=========================================
Pages can choose to master one of two weapons: swords and blunt weapons. Don't even think about going hybrid, there's no point to it.

Swords...
1. Are faster (Good)
2. Are stable in damage (Good)
3. Have longer range (Good)
4. Tend to be more expensive (Bad)
5. Equal damage in all attacks (Neutral)

Blunt Weapons...
1. Are slower (Bad)
2. Have a high damage potential, however unstable (Neutral)
3. Have shorter range (Bad)
4. Are cheaper (Good)
5. Increased swing damage, decreased stab damage (Neutral)

Swords do 100% damage on all types of attacks. BW's *seem* to do about 60% of damage whilst stabbing, and 120%+ whilst swinging.

Swings occur when you sweep your weapon from under or over, a stab is just a straight poke into the enemy.
After tests, we have determined that the average swing rate is 65% and the average stab rate is 35%. Swings will happen more often, thus benefiting blunt weapons.

Should I go with 2-Handed or 1-Handed weapons?
Use 2-handed weapons if you prefer more range and damage.
Use 1-handed weapons if you prefer a little extra defense, added stat bonuses, and increased attack speed.

1-handed weapons also tend to be cheaper, but then you have to buy a shield to go with it.

Swords are the practical choice. But it's your call. For those of you concerned about looks, look below. I have listed the weapons from lvl 30 to lvl 70 for each weapon type:

1-Handed Swords:



2-Handed Swords



1-Handed Blunt Weapons:



2-Handed Blunt Weapons:




=========================================
D. Skills of the Page (2nd job)
=========================================
My explanations, not Wizet's.

Sword Mastery: Master your sword to increase minimum damage and accuracy when wielding a sword. This is the first skill you should master if you are a Sword Page, no doubt about it.
Maxed, it gives 20 extra accuracy and a 60% minimum damage bonus.

BW Mastery: Master your BW to increase minimum damage and accuracy when wielding a BW. This is the first skill you should master if you are a BW Page, no doubt about it.
Maxed, it gives 20 extra accuracy and a 60% minimum damage bonus.

Sword Booster: Increases the attack speed of your weapon (sword). Slow goes to Normal, Normal goes to Fast, Fast goes to Faster, etc.
Maxed, it boosts your weapon speed for 200 seconds, costing 10 MP and 10 HP.

BW Booster: Increases the attack speed of your weapon (BW). Slow goes to Normal, Normal goes to Fast, Fast goes to Faster, etc.
Maxed, it boosts your weapon speed for 200 seconds, costing 10 MP and 10 HP.

Sword Final Attack: For every attack skill you use with a sword, there is a certain chance that another one will follow afterwards, with a certain damage rate. Basically, you attack once with Power Strike or Slash Blast, and you flip around (or do some cool animation) and attack again, faster. When a Final Attack activates with Slash Blast, the damage will be split amongst the monsters.
Maxed, there is a 60% chance that an attack will follow which deals 250% of normal damage.

BW Final Attack: For every attack skill you use with a BW, there is a certain chance that another one will follow afterwards, with a certain damage rate. Basically, you attack once with Power Strike or Slash Blast, and you flip around (or do some cool animation) and attack again, faster. When a Final Attack activates with Slash Blast, the damage will be split amongst the monsters.
Maxed, there is a 60% chance that an attack will follow which deals 250% of normal damage.

Threaten: Scare a mob of enemies, decreasing their weapon attack and defense. This means they do less damage to you, and you deal more damage to them when this skill is used.
Maxed, you decrease Weapon Att and Weapon Def of the entire group of monsters by 20. Costs 20 MP and lasts for 60 seconds.

Power Guard: Activate a deflection shield that takes damage dealt to you and reflects it back to the enemy. Say an enemy does 1000 damage to you. If you activate this, then it will only do 600 damage, and it will hurt itself with 400 of that damage, assuming it was not a magic attack. This is going by a maxed Power Guard figure.
Maxed, you reflect 40% of damage for 90 seconds, at a cost of 30 MP.

I don't have different builds as others do. I have one build, one build which I think is better than any other. After displaying the build, I will explain it in full detail.

D. Knight Skills (3rd job)
=========================================
My explanations, not Wizet's. Any numerical information is according to Hidden Street.

Shield Mastery: Defense gained from equipping a shield increases. Stat bonuses do not.
Maxed, you receive 200% shield defense.

Increase MP Recovery: Increases your MP recovery rate. Remember, you will recover MP even when walking, jumping, or attacking.
Maxed, you recover 30 additional MP every 10 seconds.

Magic Crash: Cancel out an enemy's "Magical Defense Up" skill.
Maxed, it costs 7 MP and nullifies an enemy's magic guard with 100% success.

Fire Charge: Charge your equipped weapon with the fire attribute. You deal more damage to enemies weak versus this element.
Maxed, it lasts for 200 seconds, adding 120% weapon attack, and costing 35 MP.

Ice Charge: Charge your equipped weapon with the ice attribute. You deal more damage to enemies weak versus this element.
Maxed, it lasts for 200 seconds, adding 105% weapon attack, and costing 35 MP.

Lightning Charge: Charge your equipped weapon with the lightning attribute. You deal more damage to enemies weak versus this element.
Maxed, it lasts for 200 seconds, adding 125% weapon attack, and costing 35 MP.

Charge Blow: A skill that unleashes the power of your element against a mob of enemies. Deals massive damage and may stun as well. Ends your elemental charge.
Maxed, it has 250% attack power and a 90% chance of stunning the enemies you hit. Costs 25 HP and 26 MP.

And after some research and collaboration with other well-versed Pages in-game, this is the build proposed. If Wizet releases 3rd job with the same numbers and calculations that we know of, it should fare well.

Level 114 - 13 Magic Crash

Final Skills:

30 Lightning Charge

In the above build, go ahead and throw in Ice Charge at an earlier level. Perhaps, after maxing Charge Blow you can put some points into Ice Charge for its freezing capabilities.

There is always the option of getting other charges first. It all depends on what you plan to fight, and for what reason (item hunting, money, EXP, whatever). Thus I have compiled the list below.


=========================================
E. Elemental Adeptness List
=========================================

Knights can choose to fight a wide array of monsters in 3rd job. I have created the following list in the format of:
Monster - Level Recommended - Weak Element

'Level Recommended' is the level that I advise you to be before training on that monster. These are monsters from Victoria and Ossyria only.

*NOTE* Colors match the color of the element effective against it, not the element of the monster.


Firebomb - 50 - Ice
Red Drake - 60 - Ice
Buffoon - 75 - Ice
Deep Buffoon - 80 - Ice
Bain - 90 - Ice



White Pang - 60 - Fire
Jr. Yeti (Transformed) - 60 - Fire
Yeti - 60 - Fire
Pepe - 65 - Fire
Klock - 75 - Fire
Yeti & Pepe - 75 - Fire
Lycanthrope - 80 - Fire
Ghost Pirate - 85 - Fire
Death Teddy - 85 - Fire
Dual Ghost Pirate - 90 - Fire
Phantom Watch - 100 - Fire
Grim Phantom Watch - 100 - Fire



Spirit Viking - 95 - Lightning
Gigantic Spirit Viking - 100 - Lightning



Ice Charge's freeze is effective against (in no particular order):
Cargo
Tauromacis
Werewolf
Cerebes
Bain
Lucida
Coolie Zombie
Minor Zombie
Dark Jr. Yeti
Dark Yeti
Dark Yeti & Pepe
Dark Pepe
Firebomb
Jr. Balrog ??
Mushmom ??
Crimson Balrog ??

The list above (what freeze works on) excludes monsters already mentioned in the elemental adeptness list. The list also excludes monsters you probably won't be fighting as a Knight. Additionally, the above list does not include Ludibrium monsters just yet. I'm working on that.



=========================================
F. Where to Train
=========================================

Here are the monsters I recommend you train with for the level you are currently at.

Levels 1-10 : Green Snails, Blue Snails
Levels 11-19: Slimes
Levels 20-26: Pigs, Ribbon Pigs
Levels 27-38: Wild Boars, Evil Eyes
Levels 39-44: Jr. Kitties, Leattys, Pink Teddies, Brown Teddies
Levels 45-52: Lorangs, Copper Drakes & Fire Boars, Stone Golems
Levels 53-60: Jr. Yetis, Drakes & Cold Eyes, Cargos
Levels 61-65: Jr. Yetis, Hectors, White Pangs, Red Drakes
Levels 66-70: Tauromacis & Cold Eyes White Pangs, Zombies
Levels 71-75: Tauromacis & Cold Eyes, Werewolves & Hectors, Zombies

And after that my knowledge is blurry, so I'll cut it there.



=========================================
G. Assorted Information
=========================================

Covering Threaten...
Threaten is a very controversial skill. Some pages like to use it, some pages get iron body instead, etc. depending on how they built their character. You probably SHOULD max threaten. Here's why you should:

-What else would you get? Your other options are Iron Body, Endure, and HP Recovery. All of which, you guessed it, are numerical-based. That means their effectiveness doesn't increase with level. In a sense, Threaten's does, as weapon attack reduction increases with the strength of the monster. Not sure about weapon defense, however.
-It's helpful in situations where you'll be fighting the "big giants". This includes werewolves, lycanthropes, taurospears, tauromacis, and lucidas too. Just one button and 20 MP and the power of your enemy is drastically reduced.
-It is showing premise right now. With an ongoing investigation on how Threaten works (whether it's really % or not), you don't want to miss out after we get the full, confirmed results. Iron Body will always reduce that 16 damage, and HP Recovery will always heal that same amount of HP while you're standing still. Ugh.

But why should you get Threaten before Booster?
Increased Booster level only increases duration and slightly decreases HP and MP cost. I think your savings of mesos in a realistic setting are no more than a couple thousand. Not worth the SP, yet, but as you have no skills later to work on, you just max Booster for the heck of it. Threaten will help you last longer in some training situations, save mesos (at least equal or more than you spend on casting), and it just plain looks cool.

Covering the strength of Pages...
Pages aren't as good as Spearmen or Fighters in 2nd job. We just have to accept that. Fighters get HP, we get MP. HP is more important than MP. You run out of HP, you die. You run out of MP, you can't use skills, but can run or use a potion. So they win in that battle. Then on to skills, I've already mentioned it above, about why Spearmen and Fighters are given the upperhand in 2nd job.

Covering the strength of Knights...
It would seem that for the beginning of 3rd job (say, level 70 to 90 or so), Knights overpower Crusaders because of that instant 50% elemental bonus, plus the power of freezing and stunning with charge blow. However, the Crusaders have their share of paralyzing magics (which can blind and stun), so they catch up or pass us later. Oh, but we look so much cooler. I won't even touch Dragon Knights until I've gathered more information on them, I don't want to create any misconceptions.

Where to cap DEX...
This isn't specific to Pages, but many warriors ask where to cap their DEX. No one knows for sure. Personally, anywhere between 60~80 is good, or you can cap it at 70 and just be inbetween. People cap it at 60 to make the most out of their strength, and others cap it at 80 to just be average. You'll find that level plays more of a role in hitting monsters than accuracy. For example, at level 70 with 80 DEX + maxed bless you may not be able to hit a certain monster, but at level 75 with 80 DEX without bless you might be able to. Me? I capped mine at 80. You can go along with:

60 DEX at level 30
60 DEX at level 40
70 DEX at level 50
80 DEX at level 60~70
