What is a hybrid character?

A hybrid character is made up of skills that are not in the same category or have two or more skills in the same category, e.g. Magic Soldier, Magic Bowman, Wizard Jr., Warrior, etc. All players are encouraged to make some type of a hybrid build to be good all-around.

Pros

  • Gain additional skills to add to your combos or buffs
  • Extremely strong and versatile

Cons

  • More skill vouchers needed to level skills.
  • Expensive if switching from a pure build when above Level 20

IMPORTANT: Skill Crystals

  • Players at level 20 or below can change skills and as many times as needed, but once you are level 21 and above you need to purchase a Skill Crystal from the Item Mall or other players.

NOTE: Before reading below about the spells Assault, Curse and Shadow Blade it is imporant to understand this- Shadow Blade requires you to have a shadowblade weapon in order to cast the buffs so often you might forget to refresh your buffs in PvP and also you have no cast time reduction in PvE, not as bad for Fighter is PvE but if you are a mage leveling will be hell. Curse is not worth it below level 300 for Mages because First Path has a 1 second cast time in PvE that means you will get interrupted alot when casting it from critical hits from mobs and might lead to your death, skill costs 1 billion gold and you are gonna skip to rank 4 next anyway, it lasts 2.5 minutes at rank 1 and costs alsmot 4k mana so if your having problems sustaining mana while leveling at 270 500 extra SA will not help.

IMPORTANT: Assault, Curse, Shadow Blade

  • Assault is mainly used for the buffs Shadow Meld (Rank 1 Level 126) and Killer Intent (Rank 1 Level 172). These buffs provide cast speed reduction to all active skills.
  • Choosing Assault is the best option for all builds since they all benefit from its buffs. Players prefer to have this skill on Builds that use Fighter skills as their Primary skill.
  • Curse is mainly used by Mages at or above level 270 because of the buffs First Path (Rank 1 Level 270) and Third Spirit (Rank 1 Level 270). These buffs provide cast speed reduction to all active skills and boost additional stats.
  • Choosing Curse is best for mages at level 300 using Mage skills as Primary skill.
  • Shadow Blade is mainly used by Fighter or PvP focused characters because of the buffs Shadowy Killer (Rank 1 Level 187) and Mad Enhancement (Rank 1 Level 240).These buffs provide cast speed reduction to all active skills and boost additional stats.
  • Choosing Shadow Blade is not prefered alot because you need a Shadowblade weapon to cast the buffs.Players like to use it only for PvP because of the spell Mad Enhancement.
  • Note: Having 1 of these 3 skills is mandatory to any build because cast time reduction makes spells instant or almost instant (2 seconds cast time -0.5 second cast time reduction = 1.5 seconds cast time / 0.5 seconds cast time -0.5 second cast time reduction = Instant Cast).
  • Q&A Why is it mandatory ? Instant cast spells cannot get interrupted when criticaly hit and also you can cast at onces all instant spells as if you casted only 1 spell. Provides faster leveling, faster skilling, instant combos, saves time overall, playing without one of these 3 skills feels bad.
  • What to choose:
  • Assault is best for all builds because it has no downside, buffs cost low mana and do not need to be recasted alot. Assault spells can be casted using any weapon. Only reason to pick Curse or Shadow Blade over Assault is if you are a Mage with level 300 Curse Spell then get Curse and you will have overall the same benefits as Assault plus extra Spell Attack.
  • Curse for Mages level 300 or above. Reason: Cast time reduction and Spell Attack. NOTE: Do not use on builds below level 300. (Main skill you are gonna be using First Path Rank 4 Level 300 http://angels.wikidot.com/spells:curse#First-path) .
  • Shadow Blade for any kind of build that you plan to PvP only. Shadowblade weapon is needed to cast these buffs. Reason: Cast time reduction and stat boosts. Players that want the benefits of Mad Enhancement Rank 4 Level 270 http://angels.wikidot.com/stances:shadowblade#mad-enhance Sometimes payers choose to pick Shadow Blade over Assault or Curse in order to gain the benefits of Mad Enhancement.(The downfall of the spell is that it requires you to have a shadow blade weapon equiped in order to be cast so if you are on AB there will be no buffs).
  • Stats:
  • Assault: -1.0 sec Casting Time (-1.3 sec Casting Time if you have the rank 5 buff).
  • Curse: -0.8 sec Casting Time (-1.0 sec Casting Time if you have the rank 5 buff) and -0.5 sec Casting Time (From Curse Spell itself only for Mage Skills).
  • Shadow Blade: -0.8 sec Casting Time (-1.0 sec Casting Time if you have the rank 5 buff).

Importance of Wraith or Earth as a mage.

  • In order to level, you need a way to sustain not only HP, but MP as well. This comes in 3 viable forms.
  • The first form, and best, is wraith. Wraith gets a skill called Forbidden Curse. This skill heals your HP and Mana based on a % of the Damage it deals. This turns into a full HP heal, and large MP heal.
  • The second form is earth. This skill line gives a spell called Gnash. This skill regens a portion of your mana, but requires Gnash to land the killing Blow. Recommend Gnash 4, and 45k Spell attack for viability.
  • The third and least form of mana sustain is Shield. Shield has a skill called Sacred Shield, which doubles your mana, fully heals your mana, and puts a shield on you that will make all damage instead, do damage to your MP. This makes your MP drain fast, and this is not recommended until you have top tier gear, high SA, and high enough MP.

Importance of Mana sustain and SP sustain

  • If you picked to play a fighter class you should know 1 thing before regreting your choice.
  • For PvP fighter needs alot of SP and a full sp bar (unless you are with top gear) will not be enough to kill a top player.
  • If you still want to play a fighter would recommend if your going Bow/Axe take Spear as secondery skill http://angels.wikidot.com/stances:spear#bloodlust but if you decide to go sword then you are better off using finesse instead of bugging dual weapons or simply use spear.
  • If buying tons of SP scrolls is not a problem for you then you have nothing to worry about.
  • If your build does not have Mana/MP sustain and your primary a mage leveling or any content worn't be really fun that why people use wraith http://angels.wikidot.com/spells:wraith#forbidden-curse and some use also shield but for pvp or if they don't have wraith http://angels.wikidot.com/stances:shield#mana-flow

The preferred skill slot can be changed to Earth for more tankiness, Spear for SP recovery and Atk boost, Avatar for defense against 1 hits in PvP, Shadowblade for Mad Enhancement Stat boost, or Wraith for PvE Defensive Spells. axe.gif

Chaos/Life This is the best PvP build for Mage, but lacks leveling potential. Not recommended until you have all top tier gear. This build is very fluid, in that the only needed skills are Life/Chaos/Curse/Staffhit/Vestment. The last slot can be changed based on your preference. Shadowblade for Mad Enhance, Axe for tankiness, Spear for SA. Melee skill recommended for Recovery Shield. life.gif

Archer As of Dec-2018 archer is seeing lackluster gameplay. Their strongest attack is a lvl 132 AOE with a 5 second cooldown. They can AOE train at higher stats due to Mind's Eye. This is the current Meta archer build. At level 280+ You want to switch out avatar for Eagle Eye, as they added skills for Eagle Eye that boosts crit, attack, and other stats. axe.gif

Sword This is a combo based class, and is capable of casting 10+ spells as part of 1 combo. Very popular with people who macro. This build is made entirely possible by the fact that you can glitch duel wielding and do not need Finesse to use 2 swords. sword.gif

Shadow Blade Unfortunately shadowblade is the least customizable build in the game. This is because it requires ghostly tactics from assault, reserve for SP, and Grapple for the delay reduction on sinations. Which leaves 1 customizable slot, Avatar. On top of that shadowblade is sub par at leveling and unless you have a good amount of agility you will find yourself dying a lot due to lack of heals. Once you are geared, you can switch out avatar for axe for the attack and crit boost, or for leveling glitch shadowblade and shield so you can use shield skills while leveling for HP regen, and tankiness. In PvP assassins die 1 hit to most top players, so defensive stats are useless. They are made to be glass cannons. shadowblade.gif

Farmer This is the fastest money farmer for low to mid level zones 1-200 and is able to produce over 30+ million gold a day on medium income spots, the reason you should make this build is first repair one weapon is like onces a week and you need only 1 weapon and 1 mount that is the only investment.Using Shadow Blade as farmer is really bad since they farm 1 mob at a time and also their weapon breaks way faster than axe and in the end axe makes more money in places where you can kill more than 1 mob at a time (in places with low monsters assasin will be better but not prefered shadowblade/reserve/finesse/assault/vestment). axe.gif

Buffer This build has INSANE CAST SPEED and chaos buffs instead of earth the only reason you should make this type of buffer is if you are a wraith earth mage otherwise life/earth has better sustain for HP/HP and is more usefull as a healer + it can farm you decent gold if ur not using him life.gif
