Introduction

This guide is based on mechanics and items present on Ragnarok Re:Start and is focused heavily on WoE.
It will not feature leveling or any PvM aspect of the game.
The goal is to optimize the build towards having the maximum possible one-shot potential while providing sufficient
survivability and immunities.

Stats

Notes:
– If you have a medium – low budget build (see 4 – Gear) feel free to remove some DEX in favor of more STR to increase ATK
– Do not put any points into AGI
– There are no stat bonuses for every 10 STR
– You can swap out the LUK in favor of more VIT if you want

Skills
[Skill Simulator]
   
Notes:
– There is very little variation in Skill Builds
– Decrease Agi has extreme value as it not only dispels Two-Hand Quicken and Increase AGI but also makes you unable
to rebuff Two-Hand Quicken for the duration of the debuff
– Beware that you get Snap/Body Relocation at jlvl 50 as Monk!
– Dont skip Pneuma or Ruwach on Aco!

Gear
Optimal

Alternate Budget Options


Notes:
– Don’t bother overupgrading armor at all unless you need a certain upgrade level for cards (Carat, Firelock Soldier)
– Magnum Break is mandatory

Tips & Tricks

General:
– You can not absorb Monks during Asura Strike cast
– Dispel only removes Fury not your active Spheres, so you can still Snap X times
– Remember that you can dispel stone cursed allies with Blessing

Asura Strike:
– When using Cloaking you can cast out of stealth
– Make it a habit to use a Blue Pot during Asura Strike cast to be 100% topped off on SP
– Precast Ruwach to avoid being hide dodged
– Use magnum break (Marine Sphere) to increase your Asura damage (not needed if you have gear from 4.1; only for DR)
– Practice animation cancelling of Magnum Break (done by spam clicking on the ground during the animation)
– You can’t dodge abilities with cloaking, only with hide
– Be careful when Asura Striking targets with reflect (needs more testing)

Spirit Sphere Summoning / Snap:
– Always have an Awakening Potion up (ASPD reduces after cast animation delay)
– Swap to your Waghnak before summoning / snapping (has + dex and higher ASPD due to weapon type)

WoE Strategies

General target priorities:
– Sage/Monk > People disrupting your Wizard/Hunter precast > Everything else

Defense:
– Absorb or kill Monks snapping through your defense
– Decrease Agi Knights (low killing prio unless standing in your wiz/hunter line)
– Kill Sages
– If you can flag in behind your precast try to get kills before the precast
– Try finding corners behind your precast to catch snapping monks

Offense:
– Protect your recaller
– Create chaos and distractions
– Absorb as many monks as possible
– Choose your Asura targets wisely, you will most likely have a lot of trouble during the 10second cooldown
– Stop trying to Asura when you get perma dispelled and focus on absorbing/disrupting
– Mental Strength is an excellent tool for EMP breaking (90% damage reduction)
