          Cap's Guide To Norse Exorcism          

screenLimitRO953.thumb.jpg.d435b158188016bc2bbeb2946e5ef7e9.jpg

You are chosen by the Church of Odin to vanquish the Demon and the Undead. Answer God's call and don the robe of holiness. Use God's wrath to deliver judgment upon the unclean.

In the name of Odin, Thor, and Loki.

Amen.

 

In this guide, I'll mostly be talking about the Adoramus branch of AB's offensive skills. There are other gear sets and stats optimized for the other builds, but in my opinion, they aren't really powerful enough. And the one piece of equipment that this build revolves around pretty much forces you to stick to Adoramus.

This is also one of the few builds that can work just as well on a Baby class. Stats would have to be adjusted but it works.

 

Stats

It's pretty easy to distribute stats for this build. The only stat we need at 120 is INT. DEX can stay at 100-ish, since won't be using DEX Boots.

STR - 1~50 - This is mainly for weight limit.

AGI - 30~70 - Some ASPD is nice. Less animation delay.

VIT - 90~110 - For stum immunity and HP.

INT - 120

DEX - 100~120 - Just get enough to have a reasonable fast cast time.

LUK - 50~90 - Adds MATK and resist some statuses.

 

Gears

As prefaced above, this guide will be mostly about Adoramus. ME and Judex will only be second in considering your gear set and stat build.

 

Headgear

18972.pngOld Mitra [1] - Increases Judex and Magnus damage, as well as stat increases based on refine level. Get this refined as high as you can.

18848.pngFresh Roses [1] - Good for leveling. Increases MATK every refine. Can also be enchanted.

19197.pngRacing Cap(Archbishop) [1] - For pure Adoramus Build. The enchant for AB can add up to 60% Adoramus Damage.

18791.pngShrine Maiden Hat [1] - Increases Magnus damage. Can be used for leveling, nothing else.

27159.pngUzhas_Card - +10% magic damage to Demon race. Additional 5% when headgear is refined to +9.

4132.pngMistress Card - Nullified gemstone requirement of skills. I suggest splurging for this card, since Adoramus consumes 1717.pngBlue Gemstone per cast. It can become quite costly when leveling or just running instances.

 

2202.pngSunglasses [1] - Easiest slotted mids to get in the game currently.

18874.pngMonocle [1] - Cheaper than slotted Sunglasses now, but quite hard to find.

5325.pngRobo Eye - Good for starters.

27159.pngUzhas_Card - +10% magic damage to Demon race. Additional 5% when headgear is refined to +9.

4148.pngPharaoh Card - Decreases SP consumption of skills by 30%. If you have this card, then just use this for mid. It will counter Misstress Card's SP consumption penalty. And spamming Judex and Adoramus can be quite taxing on your SP.

 

5463.pngRainbow Scarf - MATK + 35. There really aren't that many choices for low hg in the server.

 

Armor

15146.pngRobe of Flattery [1] - Best armor for magic classes. Can now be enchanted. Try to aim for INT enchants.

15121.pngSarah Battle Robe [1] - Has a chance to increase MATK per refine.

2365.pngOrlean's Gown [1] - Nothing to say, really. Can't be worn by Baby Bishops tho.

2374.pngDiabolus Robe [1] - A good starter equips, but, again, can't be worn by Baby Bishops.

4652.pngNightmare Amon Ra Card - THIS! That's all I can say lol. Expensive but so totally worth it. If you're gonna play Adoramus AB, this card should be one the first items you farm for.

 

Weapon

1631.pngHoly Stick [1] - The only weapon we can wear as Adoramus type. +9 minimum, +10 preferred. Can also be enchanted.

4685.pngTrue Margaretha Sorin Card - Will add up to 60% Adoramus damage if Holy Stick is refined to +10.

 

Shield

2162.pngBible of Promise Vol.2 [1] - Odin Power lvl 2. I don't usually bother with switching shields. The 4 rows of hot keys is still not enough for all the skills ABs have.

2115.pngValkyria's Shield [1] - While you still can't wear BoP2.

28902.pngCursed Mad Bunny [1] - Adds MATK. You can switch around shields, but I don't really bother.

4608.pngWhite Knight Card - When you're not gonna fight small monsters.

4413.pngHodremlin Card - Good all around defensive card.

4124.pngMedusa Card - Resist Stone Curse status.

Any racial that would benefit you.

 

Garment

2589.pngFallen Angel Wings [1] - Spell enchant.

2576.pngAdventurer's Backpack [1] - Get at +7. A good alternative if you don't have money for a +7~+9 FAW.

20749.pngCloak of Casualty [1] - A high end alternative for a FAW. But you'll only see the benefit if you refine it above +10.

4596.pngAntique Book Card - I'd say the best option for garment.

4572.pngRandel Card - Enables Auto Guard. Only use with switching.

 

Shoes

22120.pngJudgment Shoes - The one and only pair of shoes. Just read up the effects. This is one of the items you have to farm for.

 

Accessories

2881.pngOrlean's Necklace [1] - Cheap but really good accessory for MATK.

2964.pngMagic Intensifier Ring [1] - If you have high enough base MATK, then this would be better to use.

2992.pngPendant of Maelstrom [1] - A really good accessory. But I don't really like the auto cast. It has a cast delay which won't let you cast spells.

27125.pngHeadless Mule Card - Adds 20% to water and holy magic damage.

 

Shadow Gears

24292.pngArch Bishop Shadow Weapon - Refine and effect isn't really important for the build, but necessary for the set.

24305.pngArchbishop Shadow Shield - Get this refined as high as you can. Adds Adoramus damage based on refine. When worn with Shadow Weapon, reduces Adoramus cooldown by 1 second, which will make the skill almost spammable.

24273.pngPriest Shadow Armor - Adds Magnus damage per refine.

24260.pngPriest Shadow Shoes - Effect really isn't that important. When worn with Shadow Armor, MATK +3%.

24248.pngAcolyte Shadow Earring - Good luck getting this.

24252.pngAcolyte Shadow Pendant - Another shadow gear that's almost impossible to get. But when worn with AB and Priest sets, All Stat +10, HP/SP +5%, and ignores 50% of normal monsters's defense and magic defense.

 

Donate Gears

30224.pngTempest Lv3 - Kinda important to get if you can afford a set, since you won't be using a Temporal DEX Boots.

Other Gemstones is up to you.

32056.pngStar Stone(Matk) - MATK +3%

 

Note:

You can substitute some of your gears with Mora's Judgment Set if you don't have access to some of the gears, especially Deep Sea's Judgment Shoes. The Mora set will give you an idea of how to use Adoramus as your main offensive skill.

 

Skills

2040.png Adoramus - Main damage skill. Can inflict slow and blind to target.

2038.png Judex - Secondary damage skill, only if you have a high enough refined Old Mitra. 3x3 AoE.

2515.png Sacrament - Reduces fixed cast time by 50% at max level.

2052.png Clearance - Removes buffs on party members. Can also remove buff from monsters.

2048.png Lauda Ramus - Removes negative status. I can't remember which, just cast both Lauda skills one after the other lol.

2047.png Lauda Agnus - Same as Lauda Ramus.

2046.png Oratio - Weakens holy resistance of enemies on screen.

73.png Kyrie Eleison - Get at level 10. Really useful for avoiding hits.

361.png Assumptio - Doubles Def and Mdef. Baby Bishops don't have this skill tho.

12.png Safety Wall - Real nice skill for tanking.

79.png Magnus Exorcismus - If you're mobbing. Get this at level 1 or level 10.

 

Consumables

11573.pngWhite Slim Potion - You need to bring HP healing potions since you won't have enough healing skills to recover your HP.

12424.pngHP Increase Potion(Large) - Increases Max HP and increases HP Recovery.

12427.pngSP Increase Potion(Large) - Increases Max SP and increases SP Recovery.

12428.pngConcentrated White Potion Z - Increases HP Recovery.

12436.pngVitata 500 - Increases Max SP and Increases SP Recovery.

12437.pngConcentrated Ceromain Soup - Increases ASPD.

645.pngConcentration Potion - Increases ASPD.

14537.pngRegeneration Potion - Increases recovery rate of healing items by 20%.

717.pngBlue Gemstone - If you don't have a Mistress Card you're gonna need a lot of this.

523.pngHoly Water - On the rare occasion that you need to cast Aspersio on someone. Also needed for making 12333.pngAncilla.

+10 foods and +20 foods are also useful, other than that, there's really not that much consumables you need.

 

 

Now go forth and spread the word of Odin!!

PS: I made a Baby Bishop just because it looks so badass when doing 1m damage. lmao

More gear options:

1. Excellion Wing with DEF Reactos, Etrans + Deviling Card: having more def or redux doesn't hurt if u can one shot most mobs

2. Bijou Card: Really helps against mvps and mobs with freeze status like Bijou, Jitterbug, and Frozen Wolf. Adds nice damage too.

3. Golden Thiefbug Card: This card is really hard to use for AB but its viable. But I might prefer using Detale (haven't bought one yet) and just switch back to flattery robe since land protect lasts long.

4. Vesper Card: Havent really tried this one myself but I think it should increase your damage against mvps by a bit.

Pet options:
1. Scatleton Cage: Use this if you think you cant survive an instance without it.

2. Taini Pet: Matk +100 is always nice if u think u can survive and instance without scatleton.

This is very situational tho. I wouldn't really wanna lose fire power over redux. Unless you're hardcore soloing high end instances (which is just masochistic), I can't imagine the need to really tank mobs.

2. Bijou Card: Really helps against mvps and mobs with freeze status like Bijou, Jitterbug, and Frozen Wolf. Adds nice damage too.

Having racial reductions (or Medusa) is more beneficial in the long run.

Bijou only casts Wide Freeze when she is chasing you. A well-geared AB that can afford Nightmare Amon Ra or Bijou Card would be geared enough to take her hits. Safety Wall and Kyrie would be enough to block most of her attacks. And someone who doesn't have Nightmare Ra wouldn't really need to use a Bijou Card since they can outlast Bijou more with a Marc Card and a Teddy Bear Card.

Awakened Ferre can be kited. Using a Khalitzburg Card on your shield is still more beneficial if you happen to be caught in it's Storm Gust. Just cast and walk away.

For Frozen Wolves, well, there's really no benefit in wearing Nightmare Amon Ra in that dungeon, so your armor slot is free for a Marc Card. Then Hodremlin Card for the Shield for redux. Plus, nothing there really does enough damage to be wary of being Frozen.

Bijou Card can be usable. But for a Caster AB, it's not really a priority. It's one of those cards that is in the "use it if you have it" category.

Proc rate of Detale is really horrible tho. I'd rather have GTB on if facing a monster with strong enough magic or EQ.

Vesper Card is nice. 2 would be awesome. -60% MDEF of the MVP. I kinda wanna see if Big Ben/Nightmare Minorous and their respective combo does more damage than a True Margaretha Card if you're wearing 2 Vesper Cards.

@Caphleo 

Do you know the proc rate for the adoramus autocast of archbishop racing cap? Is there a way to get the item script for it? Thanks!

idk the official proc rate. But I've seen kRO videos that it procs quite often if you have 193 aspd.

I would go with Fenrir + Mistress for head slots the matk bonus is a nice thing on top of fixed 70% cast reduction, you already have better cast than sacra with temps. And then you don't need to go for tempest gems but destruction for even more Dmg.

Fenrir would be nice. If only I have one. Sold it a long time ago to buy Thana. Although, Tempest Gems would be still be preferable. I'd switch my Almighty ones with Destruction but I'm already poor AF.

Thing is if it's a guide then it should list maximum endgame potential. Ditching Tempest for Almighty+Destruction and Fenrir in head increases the dmg and decreases the cast well enough to replace temps, also the autocast formula lets you remove VCT with stats alone.

We might have different interpretations of end game potential here.

There's only a limited number of instances/dungeons this build can effectively perform in.

When you're already doing 900k to 1.7m damage per cast to those monsters, there's really no point in going for more damage, at least imo.

 

And I don't really wanna list items that I personally find "unnecessary" for what the build is intended for. Or items that I haven't tested myself.

Fenrir's cast reduction is what makes the card good not it's matk bonus. You cannot tell me Uzhas is better, you do not need to test for that. It's that it costs really not that much more than 4xTempest and performs better. Also gives you more flexibility with gems. You can even use redux or reload if you see fit. Endgame means best possible equipment.

@Caphleo any plans on updating this guide?

There aren't really anything newly released that would be useful to this build. And I'm still gathering evidence that the AoE Lex Aeterna and Adoramus really are 9x9 splash area.

For now I'm playing a Battle AB.

@Caphleo when you wrote White Knight Card on Shield, it means Khalitzburg Knight Card right? 

 

And do we need to max Lauda Ramus, Lauda Agnus, and Clearance? Or keep it at level 2, 2, 1 respectively to be able to get Sacrament.

Yea, I meant KK Card.

 

You really need all the Lauda skills and Clearance maxed. The bonus damage for Adoramus depends on their level when you're wearing judgment shoes.

 

Also, since the AoE lex came out, there's one more reason to not get Sacrament. Do note that Adoramus is 100% variable cast time.

What do you mean by 100% variable cast time? It's too bad that we can't all the skills. Even at 185/65, it's not possible.

Adoramus doesn't have fixed cast time in its formula. So all you need is to reach 530 points and it'll be insta cast.

Is Old Mitra the best HG?

For now. It also boosts Judex, which, depending on your build, could be more DPS. But when the enchants for the Racing Cap come out, I'd say those will be better since it boosts Adoramus damage.
