YO~ Hi I'm Hyko from the MMO guild and I'm playing EXOTIC POLLDANCER!!, aka full support Priest.. although the build might not seem so support oriented at first, its got all the polls :O
This build is strictly for players who want to play the roll of a "Poll Dancer" aka Priest, whether it be during PVP or Dungeons. Also this is just a guide and I do not suggest anyone to do exactly as I have done, but just something to consider when you are build your OWN UNIQUE character!
**Also, apparently there's a DN patch and I cant log-on for hours.. so i'm hella bored... OH and IF they DO raise the level cap on this patch I'll try my best to edit this build to a level 40 build, IF that is..
'Nough with the introduction, Here's the gist of my build:
Full Support Priest - The Exotic Poll Dancer!
In this section I'll explain why I chose those skills! As you may all know, CN max level cap is at 32(yet)!! so this guide is for those playing CN Dragon Nest :P no harsh feelings to everyone else~ To make it simple I will divide the skills into two categories: Supportive and Offensive
The reason why I also added offensive skills is because for the most part you will be stuck in dungeons most of the time and really "Heals" don't make much of a difference until at least lv 22+, instances are ran quite quickly and most of the healing is usually taken care of by food drops or is unecessary as long as you are doing something safe, not like soloing ABYSS or something like that, but even then, heals wont make as much of a difference until you get your polls >=D
First I'll introduce the Supportive Skill:
I. Supportive Skills
a. Heal(C) -lv10- AOE HEAL, Recovers 3.0/3.6/4.2/4.8/5.6% of
HP instantly and 1.0/1.2/1.4/1.6/1.8% of HP per second for 11 seconds. AOE of 2m
radius, its AOE radius is neither big or small, its just enough xD.
Leave at 4 or 3 depending on your style. CD is 45 seconds.
b. Protection Shell (P) -lv18- AOE BUFF, Physical Defense
Buff, lv1 gives you 10% + 30 physical defense boost.
It is pretty useful in dungeons with a duration of 1 minute while the cool down is only 10 seconds, it can always be recasted. AOE is bigger than heal, although I'm not sure exactly how big the AOE is, I'd assume about 4m(?)
4 or leave at 3, for various styles.
c. Striking (P) -lv27- AOE BUFF, this buff is much more
popular, increases physical damage AND magical damage by a percentage.
Leave at 3 for Supportive purposes ^_^.
d. Relic of Heal (P) -lv24- Ah finally what Priests are
known for! their mighty poles! This one lasts 15seconds heals 2.5% every 2
seconds for 15 seconds at level 1.
As you increase skill level the healing % goes up but everything stays same.
Cool down is 60seconds slightly longer than heal.
e. Relic of Cure (p) -lv32- Our most sacred poll yet! or at
least that's what the skill tree tells us :O.
This can fall on the offensive skill side, BUT it does cure us, it relives of one status effect while sending light damage to monsters around you! The exact details on the damage amount seems to be quite ambiguous but hey, its another poll!! must max! well that being said, the most we can get for this is lv1 since its a lv 32 skill XD.
II. Offensive Skills
Really. choosing the offensive skill tree could seem a bit "hybrid" but its really not, there isnt much more SP to spend on with the level cap at 32(yet), and instead of investing into chain lighting, why not invest into the cooler skills, I mean we already got the polls B-D.
a. Holy Bolt (C) -lv8- It sends a yellow bolt that eventually expends on impact to do an AOE Damage/Bind on the enemies. The bind time is known to increase just slightly with skill level but its assumed around 1.6 seconds. Very useful for combining with Holy Cross our offensive skill. Oh and the damage isnt bad as well. Take it to lv 4 to unlock Grand Cross.
b. Change Bolt (c) -lv3- We need this skill at lv 3 to move
on to our priest skills. Well with that being said, the skill itself isnt all
To get the most damage out of it though is to use it directly above or below an enemy so they get hit by ALL the bolts whether they may be knocked on the floor or flying over you.
c. Grand Cross (P) - lv21- Its more like a Grand X, but anyways this is a very powerful offensive skill, its VERY useful in dungeons, it basically acts likea moving wall, so while pushing enemies with it, it is also attacking the hell out of them, you'll just see massive combos if used right.
A tip on how to be a awesome GCer (Grand Crosser):
If there's a monster and is right next to a wall, shoot your GC towards the monster following the wall but just SLIGHTLY turned towards the wall so the monster won't get pushed out of it. Got it? cool. Also its useful to use Holy Bolt to bind them, and then use GC, altough it might be slightly confusing at first, after awhile you'll get used to it. Surprisingly the CD is only 28 seconds, quite short for such a good skill. Oh and also, I might add that using GC is quite weird in the beginning because I don't know if you guys noticed it but there's like this cross on the middle of the screen sorta like an FTS game? well you gotta sorta aim that towards the enemy and parallel to the ground when aiming ur GC or else your GC will get eaten by the ground >=O.
d. Holy Bust (P) -lv32- Our offensive streak doesnt end YET, we have yet another awesome skill. This is a really big AOE skill, its just blows up everthing in a circular radius around you with unholy damage @.@ yay~ but the cooldown is 60 seconds, but hey at least its insta cast.
Okay~ that's bascially the core of what my Exotic Pole-dancing Full Support Priest has considered for its skill build. The above skill tree that I added is incomplete, as you can tell there are about 50 more SP you can invest and it isnt the exact replica of my skill build but it has the core ideas, so the rest is up you ;)
Thanks for reading!
