  Hi all ! I'm Maguiia, from the "Official" French guild of LimitRO. A lot of players asked me how do I play my Arch Bishop (AB) and what's my gears, also saw most of the Full Support (FS) AB guide out there do not really fit to LimitRO, so I'm doing my own updated AB guide. As a devoted main AB player, I'll reveal everything about my AB, gameplay (mostly in hard dungeon such as Solar, Nightmare Bio), equipment, tips etc...

The FS AB is one of the most common type of AB. It'll always be needed in Pvm whereas in PvP/WoE too. It's not one of the hardest to level up alone, but not one of the easiest also. You can still try to level up like old time by using Turn Undead / Ressurection to kill Undead monsters etc... I'll explain later.

FS AB is the pinnacle of supporting. It might be the most important job to have in your team. It can be a bit difficult to always keep the buffs since you'll have to tank sometimes, but still if you can ensure the security of hitters you're doing great.

Ab.png

Overview

  • AB is the easiest class to play... Only if you think it's only about buffs and running around while waiting for hitters to kill the monsters.
  • In a party, the AB is like a Mother with her children. You have to take care of everybody. You have to heal this player, rebuff this one, clearance the MVP, ressurect this one and this.. and this.. (can be very hard when you are a single AB in a party of 12 players)
  • As the guide says, you are a FS AB but also a tank ! So you'll have to know how to deal with monsters you encounter, what's their element, which armor to use, switch gear if necessary, use the correct skill (RTENOTITLE Safety Wall or RTENOTITLE Pneuma) etc... Children can't survive without their Mother. If you die needlessly, you put the party in a great danger. Before taking care of others, you have to take care of yourself. You need tankiness to survive and you MUST know how to survive on your own.

Pros & Cons

Pros :

  • Don't need expensive equipment to be only a FS AB.
  • Everyone wants an AB in their team.
  • If you have the correct gears, you can almost tank everything (Note : With my gear, I can tank a Tiger Cannon from the sura monster in Solar Temple, she's only dealing 7k to me).
  • AB doesn't need Blue Pot or any SP consumables because we have RTENOTITLEAncilla.
  • Good survivability by spamming RTENOTITLE Safety Wall or RTENOTITLE Pneuma if the monster doesn't use magic skill.
  • The tanking build can be viable on every class.
  • Everyone wants a GOOD AB in their team.

Cons :

  • Can't farm yourself. Make another class who can farm before making an AB such as arrow-storm-build-ranger-mvp-and-auto-warg-crit-build-ranger-mvp/ Ranger or Rebellion, otherwise your progression in the game might be a bit slow and hard. (Note : You can still start an AB as a first character though, but you'll have to find a lot of parties to get better gears. Check here on how to level up solo to start).
  • You are always players dependant (need a carry).
  • If hitters are bad, the instance/dungeon will take a year to finish.
  • If you want to do quest to get access to other instances (example Dimensionnal Traveler quest) it's very hard to do all alone.
  • RTENOTITLE Assumptio won't double your Hard MDEF anymore so if you want to get the immunity status (stone and freeze) with 100 Hard MDEF you'll have to sacrifice something in exchange.
  • Depending on your party, you can have the typical players always asking for buffs "odin pls, buff pls" etc.. which can be very annoying.
  • Some players are rushing sometimes, and to buff everyone at the same time can be annoying too.

 

 

Stats & Skills

Stats

  • STR - This is only for weight limit purpose to carry more blue gemstones but since we can use @storage anywhere it's not a problem to have it 1. Even if at the end you want a higher weight limit, just use RTENOTITLE Gym Pass.
  • AGI - This is more a pvp purpose or only for Solar Temple purpose to avoid getting Masquerade by Shadow Chaser, allows you to buff faster too.
  • VIT - One of the most essential stat, get at least 90-95 (not sure of that number) to get the stun immunity.
    • Tips : if you are facing a monster who can use RTENOTITLE Acid Demonstration skill, don't raise your vit too high otherwise you'll get a lot of damages unless you have 100% neutral reduction
    • Special Note : For PvP player, Acid Demonstration formula damage is completely different to a PvM one (don't ask me why, searched a hell out of info but no precised answer) and so to be immune to AD with neutral resistance you'll need at least 121% neutral resistance.
  • INT - Just 120.
  • DEX - Same as INT, just 120 it because you'll want to use RTENOTITLETemporal DEX Boots [1] for your AB. Also don't forget DEX*2+INT=530 to get rid of your VCT.
  • LUK - Every 3 points of LUK = +1 MATK which is not bad.

My stats at level 185 :

12 90 105 120 120 59

 


Skill Trees

1st Job Skill Tree :

RTENOTITLE

2nd Job Skill Tree :

RTENOTITLE

I'm using a bit of the 2nd Job Points into the first one to get Angelus level max.

RTENOTITLE

3rd Job Skill Tree :

RTENOTITLE

 

Note 1 : For me, I like to do Magnificat after Cantocandidus but it's just me haha.

Note 2 : You aren't obligated to completely full buff that way. Like when your party is fighting little monsters, you aren't obligated to Assumptio everyone. This combo is more when someone need a full rebuff or during MVP fight.

Note 3 : Some like to use Renovatio skill, I don't really find it useful actually and just time consuming too for the skill chain.

As you can see, my skill bar is kinda full of things. Equipment to switch and a lot of various skills. Most of the blanks are equipment already equipped or skill that only appear if I equip a certain equipment. The hotkeys I'm using are just the 4 first lines of your keyboard (First line : F1 to F9 / Second line 1 to 8 etc..). You notice that I said "1 to 8" for the second line cause all of the last slot for line 2, 3 and 4 are "specials" (cause it's too far to aim and click lol). For those last slots I'm using (from top to bottom) : Space / W (for AZERTY keyboard, Z for QWERTY) and ². You can copy this skill bar if you want, but better adapt your skill bar to yourself, if you don't like this skill positionned here etc.. This is just an example.

 

Skill Explanation

Note : I'll only talk about the main skills that you're going to use, those that are occasional use such as Teleport for example won't be treated here, you can just check the global skills effects here.

Acolyte Tree

Acolyte Tree
Skill Name Max Level Recommended Level Why you want this skill ?
Pneuma.gif Pneuma 1 1

Pneuma allows you to create a 3x3 barrier against every ranged physical damage. This is very useful in PvM or PvP to be able to protect yourself and your ally against range attack.

Like that you can shorten the distance between you and the enemy and protect yourself at the same time.

Warp Portal.png Warp Portal 4 4 Warp Portal isn't very a main skill that you'll use, it's an occasional one actually, but I wanted to put it here to say that you can /memo at some instances entrance such as Central Lab, Sky Fortress and more even if you didn't do the quest to get access there !
Heal.png Heal 10 10

For those three skills, the level of Agi, Bless and Heal will influence the bonus given of Cantocandidus, Clementia and Highness Heal/Coluceo Heal.

I do made the mistake at the beginning of thinking Clementia and Blessing for example aren't linked at all and use a Level 3 Blessing and tries to get others skills. Then I realize when i party up with an other AB in an instance that I couldn't reset buffs if I use mine after her.

Increase AGI.png Increase Agility 10 10
Blessing.png Blessing 10 10
Angelus.png Angelus 10 10

Angelus is so much underrated when it is really useful. It got a very little buff of +500 HP since last skill balance, but the DEF increase from this skill is just enormous imo. Helps a lot to tank.

 

Priest/High Priest Tree

Note : Some skills here cannot be used by a Baby AB such as Assumptio / Meditatio / Spiritual Thrift or Basilica.

2nd Job Skills
Skill Name Max Level Recommended Level Why you need this skill ?
Safety Wall.png Safety Wall 10 10 Here we have the Pneuma skill version melee physical damage. Can be put on one cell and protect up to 11 hits.
Resurrection.png Resurrection 4 3~4 Well, just to resurrect your mates nothing more.
Impositio Manus.png Impositio Manus 5 5 Compared to the old Impositio where you had to Impo every party member one by one and with a long after cast, the new one which is an AoE increases ATK + MATK. Just a great buff for your healing and your hitters.
Suffragium.png Suffragium 3 0~3 Only if you're struggling to get 100% VCT. Otherwise it's a waste of skill points imo.
Aspersio.png Aspersio 5 Minimum 4   Endows the weapon of the target with holy property, very useful for your melee physical hitter that need a holy weapon against undead monsters for example.
Kyrie Eleison.png Kyrie Eleison 10 Minimum 4 to 6

Kyrie Eleison is a great skill when it comes to mobbing. If you don't have 100% neutral and maybe around 90% but you have a bunch of monsters on you that can break your Praefatio pretty fast. You might get hit and interrupt a little bit by them and so, by using Kyrie which got a fast cast you'll be able to mob them easier.

Note : Kyrie Eleison level won't affect Praefatio. Those two are independant.

Magnificat.png Magnificat 5 Any Magnificat allows your party to increase SP faster. Actually it's not that useful for you since we AB got Ancilla (still I like to see a lot of buff on the right ~). Also the effect is the same at any level, just the duration will change.
Gloria.png Gloria 5 Any Just like Magnificat, duration change but effect remain the same. LUK+30 gives a little bit of ATK and MATK.
Lex Aeterna.png Lex Aeterna 1 0~1 Lex Aeterna may allow your hitter to one shot a dangerous monster (example in Solar Temple, most of time if I don't lex a sura monster, my oboro hitter have to double hit that monster and the time he do that, the sura might kill me). But an other part I don't like about Lex Aeterna is that very long after cast delay (can be reduce, but it'll take some important card slot and more).
Redemptio.png Redemptio 1 Platinum Skill It is kinda an ocassional skill actually, you'll only use it when you have to resurrect multiple players and you already used Epiclesis. Redemptio is the last resort of your arsenal. Also it allows you to resurrect players who are using Evil Druid Card.
Assumptio.gif Assumptio 5 5

Assumptio is a great skill when it comes to tanking. It gives a good +250 DEF at level 5 and increase the incoming heal received, very efficient.

Note : The old assumptio was even more better, doubles your Soft+Hard DEF AND MDEF (make a petition to bring back old assump plox)

Meditatio.png Meditatio 10 5~10

Increase your healing skill and SP regen, pretty useful. We have Ancilla item to make the heal even better.

But if you want more skill points you can even put it at 0 actually but you gotta make a really good stock of Ancilla.

 


Arch Bishop Tree

Arch Bishop Tree
Skill Name Max Level Recommended Level Why you need this skill ?
Ancilla Skill.png Ancilla 1 1 This is just the best item in the Ragnarok game when it comes to recover SP for AB. It'll also give you the effect of a Bacsojin Card when using it and you can stock as much as you want. Just abuse of this.
Clementia.png Clementia 3 3 AoE Blessing, the stats given will increase depending on your Job Level up to +16 stats instead of +10 from a regular Blessing.
Cantocandidus.png Cantocandidus 3 3 AoE Increase Agility, the stats given will increase depending on your Job Level up to +16 stats instead of +10 from a regular Increase Agility.
Coluceo Heal.png Coluceo Heal 3 3

AoE Heal. Got a bigger range so if your mate is running too fast and miss some HP just use Coluceo Heal. Also the heal received will be increase depending on the number of party mates.

Note : I don't know if there's still a bug that cancel the party member bonus.

Epiclesis.png Epiclesis 5 1

Epiclesis allows you to increase your MaxHP/SP which can be useful for a DB RK.

Still you can check the special tips here.

Praefatio.png Praefatio 10 10 AoE Kyrie Eleison. All the party members get the buff, even those outside of your screen. Like I said before the level of Kyrie won't affect Praefatio, and at max level Praefatio will protect you from even more hit than Kyrie but the Cd is kinda long.
Oratio.png Oratio 10 5 or more Oratio is useful against monsters who are weak against Holy attack, but I don't really think about using it actually.
Lauda Agnus.png Lauda Agnus 4 4 Both Lauda buffs are insanely useful. Cures a lot of status debuff and gives a decent MaxHP+10% for Agnus and critical damage +20% for Ramus. It can also be spammed depending on your equipment.
Lauda Ramus.png Lauda Ramus 4 4
Vituperatum.png Vituperatum 5 1~4 AoE Lex Aeterna. The AoE is kinda small if it's level 3 or under. Still when you're mobbing, all the mobs are kinda packed up all together so it should be fine.
Highness Heal.png Highness Heal 5 5 Highness Heal is your regular Heal*3.2 which is quite a lot.
Clearance.png Clearance 5 5 Clearance is mostly here to remove the debuff of an enemy, not really on your allies.
Expiatio.png Expiatio 5 5 Expiatio will always be useful for magic class. Maybe not for melee (especially those who are using thanatos card) but it's a good skill to increase your damage.
Sacrament.png Sacrament 5 5 This is the skill you always have to cast in first. Reduce your FCT by -50% is such a good thing.

Leveling Guide

From Lv1 to 3rd Job

Old AB Turn Undead

Remember when you used to kill Anubis at Sphinx Dungeon by using RTENOTITLE Turn Undead and pray to one shot ? This is the same, but you can also go to Glast Heim Churchyard and kill Evil Druid / Wraith / Dark Priest which is better and easier

Dual/Alt Account

Very simple one, just create two accounts, one with a hitter, the other one with the AB

Mercenary Archer

This is the easiest one to level up alone. Buy a Mercenary Archer Lv7 for 140k zennies and go to Rachel Field 1 to kill Desert Wolf. Just teleport and spam RTENOTITLE Arrow Shower Skill from the Mercenary until you change into 3rd Job.

Bounty Board Quest

How do they work ? Very easy, just @go hq, pick a monster between C class and B class monsters, kill them and receive experience at the end. It can be hard to kill some monsters so bring an alt account or mercenary or go with a party to kill them 

From Lv100 to Lv185

Infinity Space and Illusion Comodo

Once you have turned 3rd Job, those two are the fastest ones who'll bring you to level 185. Go there with a party and don't forget to use an experience manual and kill them all

Bounty Board Quest

Bounty Board is still a thing even at level 175, but to be able to kill those as an AB, quite hard. Same as Lv1 to 3rd Job, I recommend you to bring an alt account if you want to do those or go with a party

Increases damage taken from Normal monsters by 5%

Best cheap tank headgear. Even at mid-end game I was still using this headgear (not anymore tho haha).

[Low Cost] Recommended

RTENOTITLE

Crown of Deceit [1]

Hat Maker at Asgard INT+4, Reduces VCT by 10%

It's a good hat to reduce your VCT if you can't achieve DEX*2+INT=530. Still I wouldn't make it and tend for the Low Cost headgears, they are decent enough to do a good work.

[Medium Cost]

RTENOTITLE

I Love Limit or I Love China

Hat Maker at Asgard for the Love Limit

Cool Hat NPC at Vending Harbour

Limit : Dex+5, Reduces damage taken from Demihuman monsters by 13%

China : Dex+3, Reduces damage taken from Demihuman monsters by 10%

[Medium / Low Cost] Recommended

RTENOTITLE

Indestructible
------------------------
Refine Level +6 and above:
Every refine level reduces damage taken from long range physical attack and Neutralelemental attack by 1%.

This is the best headgear possible for a Tank AB. It has a good base def for a hat and also it gives a lot of Neutral Resistance (need at least +6). Neutral Resistance is your bread and butter when it comes to tanking cause every attack from any monsters is neutral element.

[Medium / High Cost] Recommended

This is the best headgear possible for a FS AB imo. The stats given with refine is just too good. Refine it at least +6. Also it can be enchanted with those special enchant. Aim for DEX / INT / VIT as stats and for special enchant : 

RTENOTITLE  Affection for 100 H.Mdef and biggest heal possible (That +30 MDEF at level 10 is just too good because Assumptio wont double your H.Mdef anymore).

RTENOTITLE  Adamantine big pool of HP and a lot of DEF for more tankiness.

RTENOTITLE  Magic Essence get the best cast possible (with magic essence lv4, I can achieve no cast on most skills you'll use).

Nightmare Card

Geffen Dungeon 2 AGI +1
Prevents Sleep status

At mid-end game, you'll face a lot of monsters that constantly cast Wide Sleep. I'm at "high end game tier" and I'm still using this card. Immunity Status Cards are life savior.

Note : You can also use a RTENOTITLENightmare Terror Egg but I'm using an other pet that's why I use Nightmare Card.

[Low Cost] Highly Recommended

RTENOTITLE

Matt Drainliar Card

[Medium Cost] Highly Recommended

RTENOTITLE

Evil Snake Lord Card

Gonryun Dungeon 3 INT +3
Immune to Blind and Curse state

An other immune status card, but this time for two status ! But compared to Gemini card, to be immune to Blind + Curse, that is extremely useless compared to Sleep + Stone.

[Medium Cost] Not Recommended

RTENOTITLE

Mistress Card

Mt. Mjolnir 4 Nullifies Gemstone requirement of certain skills.

[Low Cost] Highly Recommended

RTENOTITLE

Robo Eye [0] or [1]

Limit HQ Machine DEX +1
Weapon ATK Power +2%
MATK +2%

Decent headgear to increase your healing and DEX+1 to help you with your VCT. There's a slotted version one, but if you want a slotted mid, look at the bottom of the list.

Note : to slot this headgear, you'll need a Mid Slotting Letter which is obtainable from Cash Shop inside a box with various items so you'll need luck to get it.

[Low Cost / Medium Cost]

RTENOTITLE

Blush of Groom

Light Hats NPC at Vending Harbour Reduces damage taken from Demihuman monsters by 3%

Timeholder, Owl Viscount, Owl Marquis None

Only to use a second card. Also cheaper than Sunglasses slot.

[Medium Cost] Recommended

RTENOTITLE

Sunglasses [1]

Sunglasses Quest Increases resistance against Blind status by 5%

You can use it to use a second card but also to combo it with Mob Scarf low headgear which gives an enormous bonus.

Note : If you plan to make a RTENOTITLE Mob Scarf just for a FS AB, don't. It's just a waste of time and all the other headgears are good enough for a FS AB.

[Medium Cost]

RTENOTITLE

Seraphim Coronet

Solar Temple

Every 4 base INT:
Increases Healing skills by 1%.
Every 8 base INT:
Increases variable cast time by 1%.

Note : This is LimitRO item description, we balanced the item effect cause it was considered too strong.

Best non slot headgear to increase your heal. The bonus given is the same as a Bacsojin Card at Base INT 120 (can go 2% higher with 128 base INT)

[Medium Cost] Recommended

RTENOTITLE

Black Devil's Mask [0] or [1]

Hat Maker at Asgard

All Stats +2 for the non slot.

All Stats +1 for the slot.

Best slotted headgear (if you don't count the combo Sunglasses + Mob Scarf). A bit of stats always help. Still this is expensive to make it slot (low chance of success). Better get a cheaper slotted headgear.

Note : You have to slot it the same way as the Robo Eye

[Medium / High Cost]

Enables uninterruptable skill cast.
Increases SP cost by 15%.
When combined with Heart Wing Hairband:

[High Cost]

RTENOTITLE

Foxtail

Hat Maker at Asgard MATK +10. Reduces fixed cast time by 0.1 sec.

Best lower headgear for your cast. 0.1 sec seems to be nothing, but without this little 0.1 sec, I can't have no cast on RTENOTITLE Assumptio.

[High Cost] Recommended

RTENOTITLE

Toy Syringe

Deep Mine MDEF +3
Increases restoration gained from Red Slim Potion, Yellow Slim Potion and White Slim Potion by 150%.

This is the best lower headgear possible to increase your Hard MDEF. Also the restoration gained by those items is so good if it's combined with a Flamel Card and Ranked Potion from Genetics.

[Low Cost]

RTENOTITLE

Spirit Elemental Armor [1]

Drop from Ifrit (fire) / Kraken (water) / King Poring (wind & earth)

Those are only elementals armors.

Elemental Armor's are just the best thing possible. They'll always be useful to have differents armors properties to any game tier players.

I think you have started to know me... But these are the MAIN ONE I'm using. All of the others are also good, but for tanking, it's not necessary about having tons of HP.

Marc Card

Byalan Dungeon 4 Prevents Frozen status.

Tao Gunka Card

Beach Dungeon 1 MaxHP +100%
Reduce physical and magical defense by 50%

This card allows you to achieve 100k HP easily. But the reduce of physical and magical resistance by 50% is a very big counter part of this card. You can still use it if you can achieve 100% neutral resistance against physical and also against magic if you have Golden Thief Bug Card.

Note : If the monster casts a physical elemental attack or use a Wide Elemental Attack, you might die very easily.

Sarah Card

Sarah & Fenrir Instance When the damage taken exceeds the user's MaxHP, user will only take the amount that exceeds the user's MaxHP.
However, it cannot reduce the static damage.

This card is hard to use. You have to know the exact damage a monster deals to you and the damage taken mustn't exceed your MaxHP*2.

Tips

  • It's good to have every elemental armors in your storage but you don't have to ALWAYS take them on you cause they can be heavy. (For example those RTENOTITLE Spirit Armor weight 220 which is a lot)
  • If you know the monsters inside a specific dungeon/instance (let's take Old Glast Heim as an example), you only need to use Shadow Armor (against those Raydric Archer) and Earth Armor (against those Maggots). You can also use a Fire Armor (against the RTENOTITLE Magnum Break from the normal Raydric) but they aren't hitting that much, you better protect yourself from the Raydric Archer (also, the normal raydric are only dealing me 10k damage when I'm having Shadow Armor and using Deviling card). So that's a total of 2-3 Elemental Armors.
  • Try to prepare the Elemental Armors in advance before going inside a dungeon/instance or just before fighting a strong monster.
  • Against little monsters who aren't hitting a lot, you can stick to your usual Elemental Armor or anything. They aren't worthy enough to switch armors.
  • If you use an Elemental Card inside an RTENOTITLE Elemental Armor, only the card will work.
  • The Evil Druid Card grants you immunity to Frozen / Stone status and you won't get knockback by the skill RTENOTITLE Fire Wall but others can't use RTENOTITLE Resurrection and Healing Skill on you or use an RTENOTITLE Yggdrasil Leaf cause of the Undead Element. Only the skill RTENOTITLE Redemptio works if you die.
  • If you are very poor, you can use a RTENOTITLE Cotton Shirt [1] just to put an other Elemental Card. Still I would tend to just change the actual Elemental Card in my actual armor instead of using a Cotton Shirt (you know.. it's a Cotton Shirt lol).
  • If you can achieve 100 Hard MDEF that's really good. But it's not obligated to always have it at 100. Even if you have like 70~90 around, at least you won't always be hit by some Wide Freeze, you'll definitely be hit less times than having 10~30.

MATK +160
Increases Healing skills by (6*Refine Level)%.
Increases SP cost of Heal, Coluceo Heal and Highness Heal based on refine level.

Those Vicious Mind Weapons can get random enchants. There's a lot of option you could get with it but I think the most useful for a FS AB might be : 

%MATK / -% After cast delay / + MATK

[Medium / High Cost]

RTENOTITLE

Spoon [1]

Drop from Bijou ASPD +10
Randomly inflicts Curse status on target when dealing physical attack

Very fun weapon to attack to attack the monster if his aggro is on your mate. With this at 193 aspd you can chain buffs really really fast.

Note : You can use a RTENOTITLE CD in Mouth to match with this and auto cast a lot of bolts ~.

EDIT : BEWARE of this weapon. By only using this weapon for quite a while, I end up being addicted to it and can't buff properly without 193 ASPD the sensation without it is so weird.

[High Cost] Recommended for fun

The cards I'm gonna advice aren't going to change your heal that much or anything. Those will be mostly Essence of Evil (EOE), since there's no very interesting cards for weapons. Your weapon is mostly here to increase your healing power because of his weapon's effect and nothing more.

Valkyrie Randgris Card

Odin Temple 3 Weapon ATK Power +10%
Randomly autocasts Level 1 Dispell when dealing physical attack.

I started to consider this card for an AB tank one because Clearance cd is extremely long and if you face several monsters who need Clearance to be killed, this card will make the work easier. Use this card on Spoon to hit faster and dispell faster.

Note : especially talking about Lisette monsters in Solar Temple when you have a ranged hitter and they just spam Defender skill.

Decent shield to get a bit of neutral resistance and MDEF. Compound a Parasite Card and get 10% neutral resistance (also cheaper than Immune Shield)

Note : The combo isn't worth enough to use. You'll want an other garment than this RTENOTITLE Piamette's Garment

------------------------
Refine Level +7:
Reduces damage taken from Neutral element attack by 5%.
Refine Level +9:
Reduces damage taken from Fire, Earth, Water and Windelement attack by 5%.

A very good shield to get neutral resistance. Need at least +7. Compound inside a Parasite Card inside and you're already up to a 12% neutral resistance. One of the best shield cause it gives lot of neutral resistance and slotted so you can put GTB inside and get 100% neutral + gtb.

[Medium / High Cost] Highly Recommended

RTENOTITLE

Shelter Resistance

Drop from Piamette (Guild Castle monster) Reduces damage taken from all monsters by 20%.

This is the best cheapest shield when it comes to neutral resistance (comparing to a +12 Immune Shield and high refined Angry Bunny) but since it's from a Guild monster castle you'll probably have to buy it to other players.

Refine Level +9:
Reduces after attack delay by 3%.
Reduces damage taken from Neutral property attacks by an additional 3%.

Tips

  • It's very important to have various shields with various cards to face various situations.
  • When you change shields for a specific situation, don't forget to go back to the tanking one.
  • If you can't reach 100% neutral resistance, the Alice Card will help you a lot to reduce as much as possible the damage from a MVP (for example before getting a GTB Card, I used to use Alice Card during Faceworm Nest to tank those RTENOTITLE Water Ball from Dark Faceworm and Faceworm Queen and reduce the damage to 8 per hit around)

Magic Intensifier Ring [1]

Geffen Magic Tournament MATK +5%
------------------------
When combined with Anti-Magic Suit:
Reduces after cast delay by 5%.
Reduces damage taken from Demihuman monsters by 5%.

The combo with Anti-Magic Suit is pretty good actually. Also you can enchant Geffen Rings now.

[Medium Cost] Recommended

RTENOTITLE

Heroic Ring

Flame Basin Quest Can be enchanted.

The ring has no effect in itself, but it can be enchanted four times ! Stat + HP or SP + DEF or MDEF + ATK or MATK. A very good all around accessory.

[Medium Cost] Highly Recommended

RTENOTITLE

Bangungot Agimat Tattoo

Bangungot Hospital Increases Healing skills by 4%.
Increases restoration gained from Healing skills and Restorative items by 7%.

Just to increase your healing power, but the instance is hard and you can get the same work with an enchanted Ring of Archbishop which is cheaper and easier to get.

[Medium Cost] Not Recommended

RTENOTITLE

Black Rosary [1]

Drop from Abysmal Dark Priest (Guild Dungeon Castle) MDEF +15

Just the best accessory to increase MDEF.

[Medium Cost] Highly recommended if you want 100 MDEF.

RTENOTITLE

Ring of Archpriest [1]

Deep Sea Expedition LUK +2
Perfect Dodge +5
Increases Healing skills by 15%.
Reduces SP cost by 5%.

When combined with Archbishop1Lv:

Luk + 2
Perfect Dodge + 5
Reduces cooldown time of Epiclesis by 10 seconds.
Increases Healing skills by 3%.
Reduces SP cost by 5%.
Reduces SP cost of Epiclesis by 100.

This is the pinnacle of accessory for a FS AB. It gives a huge heal and the combo with those differents Mora's Rings Enchants are good also (but since you'll want a Light of Cure, you'll only use the Cure combo)

Note : Before having this ring, I was healing around  17-18k and when I got it, I could instantly heal to 22k.

Example gears set-ups

Full Support

Note 1 : I only refine the items that gives effects depending on the refine. Of course, always refine every equipment to the safe limit at least.

Note 2 : Those are only EXAMPLES, you aren't obligated to build the way I did. You can adapt your equipments to your liking but do not take my suggestions as a "You MUST build like that" but as a "You CAN build like that". Still if you like it, aware me about that ~.

Starter Set

RTENOTITLE

 

Low End Gear

RTENOTITLE

As I said before, the orlean's set is a good one to start and not that hard to get. You can see I'm using Marc / double Zerom and Medusa card. The boots aren't slotted yet but it's fine, it's just to get the reduce of fixed cast time.

 

Low/Mid End Gear

RTENOTITLE

Here, a very important accessory, the Light of Cure (enchanted with RTENOTITLE Cure Lv1 and Dex+1). Boots are still non slotted but with RTENOTITLE Spell 5 enchants. Try to aim for Muscle Fool or Runaway Magic as special enchant. Following cards (from top to bottom) are Parus / Bathory / Drops / Medusa / Raydric and Zerom.

 

Mid End Gear

RTENOTITLE

Here not that much changes in equipment but mostly in cards : the Nidhoggur's garment Raydric -> Deviling, the card inside the Light of Recovery Drops -> EOE DEX 3 and the refine of the Light of Recovery to +7. The Hero Ring here is enchanted DEX / MATK / MaxHP / MDEF. Finally the boots here are slotted and compounded with Green Ferus card.

 

High End Gear

RTENOTITLE

Here some major changes. Etran's Shirt to negate Deviling counter part, Golden Fish for the all stat+2 and a higher refine of the temporal boots to get more DEX. Cards from top to bottom are Nightmare / Bathory / EOE DEX 3 / Medusa / Deviling / Green Ferus.

 

Very High End Gear

First example with DEX Boots

RTENOTITLE

My actual gear. Composed from most Recommended / Highly Recommended items I've listed. I have Gemini in hat to get the stone/sleep resistance and if I need 100% I'll use a Monocle slot with also a Gemini card. Also have 100% neutral resistance without using Metal Dragon Pet. Try to enchant the Old Mitra with good stats enchant (DEX, VIT, INT / I have dex+5 and vit+1 atm) and a good special enchant (Adamantine Lv4 on this one for +20% maxhp and 60 DEF). Last thing, you can change the Soul Fragment Card in the Spoon cause it's useless for a FS AB (was using it for fun tho with a battle AB) to an EOE dex, int or vit or just use the Light of Recovery as usual at +9 with enchants too.

NEW : You can use the Class Gemstones now to replace your DEX Boots. Still those two are stackable so either you replace DEX Boots to Enhanced Variant Shoes or Applause Sandals or just keep those two and get a better cast.

 

Lauda Spammer

RTENOTITLE

Immune sleep and stone cause of double Gemini, I'm trying to get as much as Hard MDEF I can get (around 85 with those atm). Not fully protected from frozen status, but low chance to hit me. Since you just want to spam Lauda with this set, you don't need tankiness just hide from the monsters and spam your buffs.

Note : It could be possible to hit 100 Hard MDEF if you have Affection enchant on the Old Mitra and MDEF enchants on bible.

 

Ultimate Lex Aeterna spammer

RTENOTITLE

With all of those, you can reach 102% after cast (only need 100 though). The spoon allows you to easily hit 193 aspd so you can spam Lex Aeterna extremely fast. Only card required here is the Kiel card which is in the Old Mitra.

 

Ultimate Caster

Ultimate Caster.png

To be able to no cast EVERY skills possible, you'll need -2s fixed cast time (DEX Boots -0.5 / Foxtail -0.1 / Magic Essence -0.9 / Class Gemstones -0.5). This is very satisfying to see but you only need -1s to be able to no cast the main skills (Clementia / Canto etc..).

Note : Don't mind those refines, I was only doing my own test on the test server...

Tanking

Note : In every set up gear below, you can adapt the elemental armor depending on the monster of course.

Low End Gear

RTENOTITLE

If you can't get 100% neutral resistance, you'll want to reduce the damage from MVPs. Alice Card / Abysmal Knight helm are the one you want. 

 

Mid End Gear

RTENOTITLE

The gear set up here is pretty good to tank a monster who doesn't hit that hard with auto attacks but deals a lot with magic attacks. You can use an Angry Bunny instead of Valkyrie Shield if you want to reduce a bit more the neutral damage. 

Note : I'll make a gif of this set in action when I'll have time.

 

High End Gear : Differents set-ups of Neutral Resistance

100% Neutral Resistance Bunny + Metal Dragon Pet

RTENOTITLE

 

100% Neutral Resistance Palace Guard + Immune Shield without Metal Dragon

RTENOTITLE

 

100% Neutral Resistance Shelter Resistance + Metal Dragon

RTENOTITLE

 

100% Neutral resistance + GTB card and Metal Dragon

RTENOTITLE

You can also use an Immune Shield instead of Ultralight one, but Lucky Box is so unfair with me /desp.

 

100% Neutral resistance + 100Hard MDEF without Weird Coelacanth without Metal Dragon

RTENOTITLE

Having 100 Hard MDEF to get immune freeze and stone, complete with Nightmare card and 100% neutral resistance without Metal Dragon pet. Quite an efficient set even if your heal will be crap and you still keep a good cast by having those reduce fixed cast time from Foxtail and Temporal DEX Boots. Also you can even improve this equipment to 100% Neutral + GTB + 100 Hard MDEF by changing the shield into +9 Ultralight Magic Shield and a higher refine of Immune Manteau.

By not having Weird Coelacanth card, you can adapt your elemental armor card which is very good. Also if you can succeed of having RTENOTITLEAffection Enchant on your Old Mitra (let's say you have Lv. 5), you will get +15 Hard MDEF and you can change the Mask of Hero to Seraphim Coronet for a better heal and change one EOE Vit 3 on weapon or accessories to something else like an other EOE or just an other card.

 


Neutral Resistance Showcase

Showcase 1 : Bio Lab 2 / Sky Fortress

 

RTENOTITLE

You can even see there's the Boss Cenia MVP on me using Spiral Pierce.

 

RTENOTITLE

Those Evil Shadow got quite a high hit rate, but with 100% neutral resistance it's useless ~

 

Showcase 2 : Bio Nightmare

 

RTENOTITLE

Special thanks to IamObobo who helped me gather the right mob to showcase this <3.

RTENOTITLE

See the little violet thingy at my feet ? AD from the Genetic is missing me, quite advantageous.

Special note : with 100% neutral reduction AD from a monster won't hit you but for some reason and weird formula damage, you need at least 121% neutral reduction to avoid AD from a player.

 

Showcase 3 : Solar Temple

 

RTENOTITLE  

Alexi in Solar Temple is the only one who only do neutral attacks. I can do the same thing with RG/AB and more, but they weren't here the day I did this gif.

RTENOTITLE

You can see i'm getting hit by 1 only because of the Catnip Meteor by being magic attack. Still you can see those RG not dealing a thing to me.

RTENOTITLE

RG, Sorc, Cat and GX, all four monsters on me. Still can't hurt me ~.

 

Showcase 4 : Lunette Island

RTENOTITLE

With the newest Lunette Island, monsters became way stronger than before. They hit pretty hard but with the mighty neutral resistance set, they won't deal a thing :).


Donation items and Shadow Gears

Gemstones

Gemstones are a huge help depending on the one you choose. There's 10 types of gemstones, you can check all of them here. You can buy those in the Cash Shop for 50cp if you directly buy lv3 or 10cp lv1 and try to upgrade it with NPC (Note : the chance to succeed aren't that high, from lv1 to lv2 it's 60% success and from lv2 to lv3 it's 30% success). We'll only look at the one who's useful for AB.

For myself, I'm using x4 Protection and x4 Almighty. Stats are always useful for any characters and I like protection cause if you can do 100% neutral resistance on one character, you can do it on every characters you have. The others are still useful, but the best imo are Protection and Almighty.

Mercy gives you a higher heal / Tempest allows you to cast faster / Vitality to be a bit more tanky by having more HP instead of having more reduction compared to Protection gemstone / Reload and Speed allows you to spam skills faster by having more ASPD or less after cast delay.

Star Stones

Lot of choices here too. You can only count on luck to get the right one cause to pay 50k cash point.. good luck default_Heh.gif

If you're lucky try to get those :

Class Gemstones (NEW)

This feature is a completely brand new one on LimitRO : Class Gemstones. There's 4 type of class gemstones : top, bottom, middle and garment and also there's gemstones level 1 and 2. You can obtain them from Cash Shop.

For a FS AB, the only one useful for us are the level 1 bottom + garment (most important) and you can add top if you want.

Gemstone Effect Maguiia's Tips

Crystal.png

High Priest Stone (Top)

Increases heal effectiveness by 1% for each level of Meditation user learned.

All of those can be put in a headgear costume (even if one is called garment...). I would recommend you to put it at the place of two protection gemstone (so you'll have 4x Almighty / 2x Protection and 1 HP Stone bottom+garment).

I do really think the HP Stone Top is just a waste of slot, having a +10% heal isn't going to change much.

The combo Garment + Bottom is just the best thing ever. You could replace your DEX Boots if you have those two stone and use an other boots like Enhanced Variant Shoes to get HP/SP and MDEF OR you can keep the boots and gemstones so you'll have an insane cast (combine those with a Magic Essence Old Mitra and admire your AB).

Note : Did some testing, and you need -2s fixed cast time to be able to no cast every skills (very hard to no cast Duple Light, Renovatio and Epiclesis). Still -1s is completely enough to no cast the usual buffs.

High Priest Stone (Bottom)

Increases Magnus Exocismus damage by 20%.

Note : Completely useless if you don't have the garment stone.

Archbishop Stone (Garment)

Shadow gears enchants

By trading 50 7773.pngWar Badge and 1 RTENOTITLE Shadow Phantom (obtainable by winning a game of BG1 or by doing the quest receive from Prince Croix) you can enchant your shadow gear. If you aren't satisfied with the current enchants, you can reset it with differents methods (10x 7773.pngWar Badge = 20% chance to fail & destroy the equipment, 300x 7773.pngWar Badge = 0% chance to fail, VIP Coin = 0% chance to fail).

Here you can check all the enchants you can have. Try to aim for DEX / INT / VIT / Archbishop / MATK enchants.

Consumables

Consumables are an important part to take care of before starting a hard dungeon/instance. Always check the number of consumables you got so you won't run out of them during a fight.

Here is a list of important and essential consumables

Essential items

  • RTENOTITLE Blue Gemstone (Resurrection / Vituperatum / Safety Wall, you can't call yourself a FS AB if you don't have blue gemstones).
  • RTENOTITLE Ancilla (Just the best SP recover item in the game, catalyst item for Epiclesis and also gives a healing increase rate equal to a Bacsojin card).
  • RTENOTITLE Holy Water (Required to cast Aspersio and Epiclesis)
  • RTENOTITLE Yggdrasil Berry
  • RTENOTITLE Yggdrasil Seed
  • RTENOTITLE Concentration Potion (Note : it's essential for me to hit 193 ASPD, otherwise if you don't use Spoon item it's not really necessary, having 175 ASPD with 90 stats around compared to 178 won't change much)
  • RTENOTITLE Riding Halter (Move faster instead of being a slug next to a RK/RG and more)

 


Useful items

  • RTENOTITLE Regeneration Potion (increase your survivability by being able to heal more on yourself).
  • RTENOTITLE Resist Potion (Fire / Earth / Wind / Water, those are very useful if you fight a monster who only uses one element)
    • Be careful if the monster uses for example water and wind magic/attack damage cause if you use the Cold Resist Potion, you'll get more damage from Wind attack
  • RTENOTITLE Chicken Dinner (Very fun item to use, based on my own experience you can cast Raisin Dragon, 16th Night, Striking).
  • RTENOTITLE Granma's Lunch Box (Same utility as Chicken Dinner, this time you can cast Energy Coat, Improve Concentration, Crazy Uproar).
  • RTENOTITLE Undead Elemental Scroll (Endow your armor with Undead property)
    • Do note that you don't become Undead property compared to the Holy one, you just get the following resistance listed in the item description and you can still heal yourself with healing skills.
  • RTENOTITLE Holy Elemental Scroll (Endow your armor with Holy property)
    • This scroll is mostly the one I always use in high difficulty dungeon/instance
  • RTENOTITLE Foods in general (More stats are always useful).
  • RTENOTITLE Special Defense Potion
  • RTENOTITLE Enrich Celermine Juice (get a higher ASPD to buff faster).

Increase Weight Capacity

With 1 base STR stat, AB can't really carry that much items. A 2k more weight capacity is very useful, thanks to RTENOTITLE Gym Pass.

How to get Gym Pass ?

You can buy at Event Shop (300 event points) / Iris HQ (100 limit points) / Vote Shop (2000 vote points). Better get those with event points imo.

How to use it ?

Use @go hq and go top right. You'll find Ripped Callus NPC there. You are up to 10 Gym Pass per character and you'll receive RTENOTITLE Enlarge Weight Limit lv10 with 10 Gym Pass.

Tips on how to play AB

General Tips

  • Always heal yourself and remove debuff on you first ! Otherwise you'll be useless if you're dead or cursed etc...
  • Don't forget to check if you're out of RTENOTITLEBlue Gemstone / RTENOTITLEAncilla or not. Those are your primary supplies. There's also RTENOTITLE Yggdrasil Berry/Seed too if the monster surprises you with a high hit damage, use one of them to not get combo and die. (also don't forget RTENOTITLE Resist PotionRTENOTITLE Elemental ScrollRTENOTITLE Holy Water and others)
  • Always pay attention on the buffs and always keep RTENOTITLE Sacrament buff on you.
  • Learn about other classes and their builds. It's fine to only know the basics, but if you can learn more, you'll be a better AB, you'll get to know which buffs they need.
  • But not only classes, you also have to learn monsters data (race, elemental, skill, and especially pattern to make the monster easier to deal with etc..) so you can adapt your gears before the fight and not right in the middle.
  • If you're tanking or if your mate is tanking, always keep Assumptio on you/him. This is by far the strongest buff for tanking.
  • If hitters are taking the aggro, you have multiple choices :
    • Hit the monster and take aggro,
    • Let them die (if you can't get the aggro in time or if they aren't trying to move from the monster),
    • Try to keep them alive by healing them / spam safety wall (but if he's not trying to move from the monster and not doing any effort to avoid damage and just wait for you to heal him, let him die).
  • Know the range of your skills to be able to buff someone as soon as possible or remove his debuff fast.
  • Team work is the key to complete any dungeons/instances. Don't lack communication.

 

Advanced Tips

  • When you do Alt + Z, you can use your buff on the name of the character.
    • RTENOTITLE
  • Also you can slide the character name outside of the box and just buff on the name directly if you're having trouble to aim at the character in itself.
    • RTENOTITLE (of course you can put the name anywhere you want, I'm putting it on the left side of my screen usually)
  • If you want to spam Lex Aeterna, always use Vituperatum first then Lex Aeterna.
  • Safety Wall and Pneuma are your essential survival skills. Depending on the type of physical attack the monster do you'll have to use the right one, but did you know depending on the monster's position, long range attack can count as melee range attack ? At a 5 cell away of the monster, his range attack is counted as melee (it doesn't work for every monsters in the game, but in Nightmare Bio it do works like that with Cecil and DB from RK for example).
  • Establish priorities, what you have to do first in this situation, develop your judgement skills.
  • Epiclesis allows you to increase your MaxHP, but there's clearly a better way to use it. Epiclesis is the "Tree of Life", so if you cast it on a dead player, it'll resurrect him. Moreover, if there's multiple dead players, it'll do a wide ressurection skill which is extremely useful but it'll do a Resurrection Lv1 so don't forget to heal them just after or let them use a Berry/Seed ! Also, since it cast a wide resurrection, it also can be used against Undead monsters to kill them like a Wide Turn Undead.
  • Sometimes, monsters are going "frenzy" and start to move faster, hit faster, use auto guard etc.. AB got the skill Clearance to remove the monster's buff. Hold shift button and use clearance on the monster ! Very useful but quite a long cooldown (High chance to use it on a team mate by inadvertance if you're not aiming properly so be careful).
  • This one is an obvious tip, still some do not understand it sometimes. DO NOT use Odin's Power on you, other AB and classes who doesn't need it, you're just reducing their tankiness like that.


AB during Nightmare Bio

For this part, I'll explain how to deal with specific monsters (there'll be two groups).

Firstly, you'll need some status immunity. Most used by every monsters are Stone and Sleep. The only monster who's casting Freeze is the Katyrinn Keyron. You must always wear anti-stone and sleep every time but for freeze whenever you see a Katyrinn, use it, you're not obligated to always have anti-freeze but if you forgot to switch you might kill your mates by being freeze.

Mostly just by having at least ~75% neutral reduction is enough to be a good tank there (you'll be able to reduce the damage receive from every monsters a lot, but they are still doing lot of damages so you'll have to heal yourself a lot). A high % of neutral reduction works very good especially against the following monsters :

Neutral reduction is good against them cause they don't cast much elemental skills. Still some can be very annoying an other way. For example the Flamel can cast RTENOTITLE Demonstration on you and break your armor and deal high damage, the Seyren uses RTENOTITLE Dragon Breath and just one shot you, almost impossible to survive this one.

 

Now against those monsters, neutral reduction isn't that important cause they aren't hitting very hard but they are hitting quite a punch with skills. If you have GTB it's very good against them.

  • Katyrinn Keyron (mostly Storm Gust / Earth Strain / Water Ball)
    • RTENOTITLE
  • Celia Alde (mostly Killing Cloud / Psychic Wave / Dispel)
    • RTENOTITLE
  • Alphoccio Basil (Lord of Vermillion / Water Ball)
    • RTENOTITLE
  • Trentini (Meteor Storm, but every meteors aren't going to always hit you, so Trentini can be in both section)
    • RTENOTITLE

You have different possibilities against them :

  1.  Use Etran + Deviling Card instead of Immune Manteau so you won't get the counterpart of the card but your neutral resistance will reduce by a lot,
  2. Use Immune Manteau + Deviling and adapt your armor card but you'll still get some tons of damage cause they aren't using only one element,
  3. GTB for the win. 

 

Lastly, depending on the monsters you're facing, you'll have to establish priorities, which monster has the highest chance to kill you, which one doesn't etc..

  • If you're facing only monsters in the neutral reduction rubric, just stick to 100% neutral reduction and adapt the elemental armor if needed.
  • Against a Celia and a Seyren for example, it's better to stick to GTB and lose a bit of neutral reduction so you won't be Dispel which can be a pain in the ass. Spam RTENOTITLE Safety Wall to survive an eventual RTENOTITLE Dragon Breath from the Seyren and you'll be ok.
  • I'm saying "adapt the elemental armor" but actually all I'm using there is holy armor cause RTENOTITLE Genesis Ray won't touch you and Holy gives a bit of resistance against every elements.
  • Gertie can use Strip Skill, Flamel can use Demonstration and break your armor, Kathryn uses RTENOTITLE Earth Strain and can break your armor too, Howard can also break your armor. Don't be surprise if you have 100% neutral reduction with armor and no more after one attack.
  • Tell your mates TO NOT USE "rude skills". Most of them are trapping skills like RTENOTITLE Extreme Vacuum, it'll make the monster cast Max Pain which is a 100% wide reflect damage physical and magic (so basically, if the monster is in Max Pain, you do an Arrow Storm at 100k, then 100k in your face and in all of the party member in the range of the monster). I had a sorcerer once in my team who didn't want to listen to me and keep casting Vaccum and Killing Cloud and always kill the whole team, just ended up kicking him from the team.

 

My equipment during Nightmare Bio

RTENOTITLE

The Cursed Mail is one of the best armor for this cause at +7 it's unbreakable and gives a good amount of HP. Also switching to Ultralight shield with GTB so i can still keep a high % of neutral resistance with also Metal Dragon pet too. As weapon, you can use Light of Recovery, it's just I like to buff fast with Spoon and smack monsters ~.

I'm using Holy Elemental Scroll too to get holy armor and keep the marc card.




AB during Solar Temple

Final topic of the AB guide, Solar Temple. Solar Temple is one of the most hardest dungeon in LimitRO right now. Monsters are insanely strong, spam even more status effect and move very fast. If i have to compare Bio Nightmare and Solar Temple, Bio looks like a poring when Solar looks like a pori pori, same appearance but definitely not the same damage.

On 13th May 2019, Solar Temple got revamp. The revamp is only about monster's new sprite, new name. I'll talk with the new names and also old (cause i like old names). First of all, Solar Temple is a rotation of four monsters available in this list. Some monsters can come back again, but mostly 1-2 monsters change at least.

Just like Nightmare Bio guide, starting off with a description monster by monster then what to do with multiple monsters. I won't do two groups of monsters just like Nightmare Bio cause you'll mostly deal with them only with neutral reduction (and sometimes gtb). Of course, neutral reduction and protectoin against status effects are the keys to be able to tank there too.

Note : If you want to tank there, especially Sura, RG, GX and Genetic you have to get true 100% neutral reduction. For example the Sura deals me 7.2k when i'm at 100% but if i'm at 99% neutral reduction, she'll one shot me. The equipment I'm using is just the same as Nightmare Bio, just maybe switching with Boitata Armor with Sandman Card, gtb etc..

Note 2 : Just like Nightmare Bio, DO NOT USE RUDE SKILL, they can all use Max Pain only from rude attack except MVP.

Special thanks to Ricorick who helped me figured out every monsters elements and monsters new names. Check out his awesome RG guide here and Sura guide here !!

 

  • Zeniea aka Shalltear. Sorcerer, poison monster.
    • This one and only monster will be the only one you'll have to use GTB against her. Her auto are like poring hit but her spells are destroying. She's also EXTREMELY annoying cause she's spamming Spider Web in wide area and so if you don't have a range hitter, you won't be able to kill her.
    • Mostly using Diamond Dust (care of Crystalization status) / Killing Cloud / Psychic Wave / Wide Spider Web / Soul Burn / Wide Deep Sleep. When she's attacking someone, she'll stick her auto attack on that player but she can cast sometimes one or two spells on an other one so be careful.

 

  • Faustine aka Ram. Arch Bishop, holy monster.
  • Lisette aka Leafa. Royal Guard, holy monster.
    • For both Lisette and Faustine, you'll have to use Holy armor against Genesis Ray / Holy Cross / Judex / Duple Light. They aren't using much Wide Status effect compared to Zeniea.
    • An other thing, those two aren't really changing target if you are hitting from range, they'll only stick to the tanker so they aren't to hard to deal with team mates.
    • For Lisette only, she can use Shield Chain skill. This skill is considered Pseudo-Elemental and so it can hits you even if you got 100% neutral reduction (it won't one shot you, but can deal half of your HP in an instant so be careful with her). Using Praefatio helps you to avoid being hit too by this skill. 
    • Last thing for Lisette, she also uses Defender and Reflect Shield skills so she can be quite hard to kill sometimes (don't be surprise if your damage drop by 500k in one instant hitters). Just use Clearance on her and it'll be fine.

 

  • Kristine aka Asuna. Sura, neutral monster.
    • Sura monster is a bit special to tank. She's mostly using Tiger Cannon / Hell Gate / Cursed Circle and also moving a lot around you with Body Relocation so it makes her hard to aim sometimes.
    • All of the offensive skills from her are completely neutral. Now you will ask me "Why is she so special to tank so ? By having 100% neutral reduction you'll be completely immune to her attacks right ?". Well the reason is about Tiger Cannon's and Hell Gate's formula damage. The thing is those two skills deal damage depending on the caster HP. This part of the skill formula completely ignore every external modifier so it'll ignore your neutral reduction.
    • That's why I said above "Sura deals me 7.2k when I'm at 100%", she'll still hit you even if you got 100% reduction but she won't be able to one shot you if she has 100% HP but if she's low in HP, this a 100% one shot. Just spam Safety Wall on you as fast as you can whenever you see her. Even if you got a Safety Wall but she's low in HP, she's chaining her skill very fast too (1 TC followed with 2 GoH main combo)
    • Still, Kristine is a pure glass cannon monster. She deals extreme damage but can be killed very easily if your hitters are strong. 

 

  • Alexi aka Narbera. Guillotine Cross, ghost monster.
    • Alexi is one of the worst nightmare for hitters. Just like Kristine, she moves very fast not around you but directly onto players by using Dark Illusion skill which makes her EVEN HARDER to aim.
    • Mostly using Wide Stone / Wide Sleep / Rolling Cutter / Dark Illusion / Dark Claw and Cross Impact (not sure for that one). If you don't have 100% neutral reduction, she'll kill you by using Dark Claw and spamming Rolling Cutter extremely fast.
    • But just by having 100% neutral, she's like a poring next to you (check out the Solar Temple neutral resistance showcase)
    • Of course, she's also using Dark Illusion on every players who's in range so really tell your hitters to not stay close to you.

 

  • Sarienne aka Felt.  Shadow Chaser, shadow monster.
    • This is the nightmare of the nightmare of... the nightmare. Actually she's not dealing a thing at all. All of her attacks are weak.
    • BUT she's the most annoying monster in LimitRO. Spamming Jack Frost / Every Masquerade skills / Flying Side Kick (just like Dark Illusion very hard to aim) / Wide Sleep / Strip Accessory and Wide Stone (not sure for stone) and so by stripping all of your equipment, she becomes strong enough to kill you slowly and watch you die while laughing. 
    • There's an other way to deal with her which is by using e Mechanic character because when they are in a madogear they can't be strip but still can receive the debuff of Masquerade. Use a mechanic and place a Magnetic Field on her so she won't move anymore can be pretty useful (or just one shot before she can touch you..). But as an AB, well you can tank it until she completely strips you.
    • Just like GX, tell your hitters to not stay close to you.

 

  • Helene aka Rem. Genetic, fire monster.
    • Helene is a very annoying monster because she'll obligates you to use an Earth armor especially just for her. You can fully protect yourself from AD and Cart Cannon by having 100% neutral reduction, but she's also using Crazy Weed / Thorns Traps and deals a lot of damage on you if you aren't using earth armor.
    • A new status effect from her which is Howling of Mandragora, howling status will make your cast extremely slow and it can be very annoying if you need to Lauda or heal yourself.
    • An other thing, she can change target just like that. If someone come to close she can just change target, one AD and go back to the other one so really, tell your hitters to not stay close to you once again.

 

  • Nyanyan aka Fiore. Doram, earth monster.
    • Just like SC (but not as annoying as SC), Nyanyan spams one skill specifically on one player which is Silvervine Root. You'll get stuck for no time if you can't kill her from range.
    • Also using Catnip Meteor / Catnip Powdering, but doram monster isn't a threat at all.

 

  • Reisha aka Albedo. Super Novice monster and also the MVP, wind monster.
    • Lastly, the MVP Reisha-Albedo. Actually she's scary at first, but she's not doing much against you with 100% neutral and gtb.
    • She do spam a lot of skills : Wide Freeze / Wide Sleep / Wide Stone / Jupitel Thunder / Thunder Storm / Storm Gust. My advice for her is to not tank her actually. Stay behind and turn yourself into Supreme Lauda Spammer so your team can do the work. But if you really have to tank it, get all of the immune status (Marc + double gemini or Marc + Medusa + Nightmare) and and use Lauda when you can.
    • Compared to others, she'll cast Max Pain when she's around 10% HP so be very cautious about her life and tell to your mates to stop hitting her so you can clear her.

 

Example of monsters compositions

Let's move on some monster's compositions. As I said before, Solar Temple is a rotation of four monsters everyday.

 Case number 1 : sura / sorc / gx and doram

  • Firstly you'll have to focus on killing sura everytime cause she's the one who's got the most chance to always kill you when others you can easily counter with neutral reduction and GTB for sorc. You also don't need any elemental armor actually, you can just use maybe water one against Diamond Dust but it's not that useful, just get more HP or Bathory card to reduce every elemental skill from sorc.

Case number 2 : ab / sorc / rg / gx

  • Whenever there's an AB or RG, holy armor is a must. Still in this easy case, Holy armor + 100% neutral and gtb will do the work and you're just unkillable with those monsters too. This case is probably the most easiest possible.

Case number 3 : rg / sc / genetic / sorc

  • Now it's getting very tricky.. You will have to change between holy armor for RG and earth armor for Genetic. And more you'll have to deal with a SC too. If you happen to encounter Genetic and RG in the same time, I would recommend go for Holy armor cause Genesis Ray is more spammed then Crazy Weed. Always keep a 100% neutral reduction or some wild AD might kill you and try not to be strip by SC.

Deadly case : gx / sc / sorc / genetic

  • Ok so.. you got here 2 people spamming Flying Kick and Dark Illusion, spam also every status posible. You have an other one burning all your sp, spam Wide Spider Web and if you happen to be with a gx/sc with a sorc, you'll 100% get strip by sc or mates get wiped by gx. Lastly, you have this stupid genetic with random target change that can also trap you by using Thorn Trap and kill you with Crazy Weed ?
  • Special Advice : Do not go Solar Temple c:
