Introduction

At heart, the Warrior is an optimist. He believes in keeping his weapons sharp and his wits sharper. Fond of crude jokes, he sometimes comes across as an uncultured brute, but in battle, he's clever and precise, relying on both raw strength and quick combos to gain the upper hand. Such an attitude is surprising considering his upbringing. His mother was killed by monsters, and his drill sergeant of a father walked out on him—but that hasn't dampened his spirit. He's now on a quest to uncover the truth of his birth and lineage, but he's going to find much more than he bargained for.

Warrior Features

Job Advancement

You can make your job advancement at level 15.

Talk to the skill instructor (should be Warrior Master Chandler) located in the Carderock Gateway and select the first option, accept his request. He will send you to a survival area where you must survive X amount of times and kill X amount of monsters. After you complete this request, Chandler will send you back to the city. Talk to him and accept another quest. In this quest, you must go to the "Gigant Tauros" Stage (level 14 stage), and defeat him; set the difficulty to normal if you fail many times. After you defeat him, you will be transferred back to town where you can then speak to the warrior master to select your job.

This build is outdated, you no longer need lv 3 heavy slash for Triple slash as a swordmaster, you need lv 5 rising slash for lv 1 triple slash. ( Rising slash's double uppercut changed from lv 3 to 6 for early damage balancing since it was dealing way too much back then ).

First day of CB and there's a thread for a skill build already? o_O
I understand it's from the Korean/Chinese versions, but let us figure our builds on our own! >:D
There's only 40 levels. >_>

Yeah, you guys can customize your own build if you'd like using the skill simulator.

.... This isnt all that a good I mean yea you show what others use but....You don't explain the reasoning to what you posted as far as skills go and you dont show you have much experience to the class you speak of[videos etc (show how *** works)]. One thing to know is NA has made changes so really you should be waiting to check all the changes made and some severs have nerfs that others may or may not have. Don't mean to make you look bad but thats just the tip of the ice burg when it comes to the facts.

The skill simulator you are using is very outdated; If u can read korean or navigate or figure it out, this simulator is current version

Edit: this is outdated but more recent than your simulator

Oh hey, it's Impulse. :O Did you get accepted into Beta?

I realized that this guide is outdated. I'll probably update it once I get more information with the NADN skills. Though, I heard that there's really no need for a distinct build, since all of the skills will be used eventually? o-o Dunno.
