Ragnarok Online WoE Rune Knight Build
Please take note that this is a GUIDE. You are not required to copy exact stats, equips and skills. What works for me may not work for you. You have been warned.
The Knight class were always offensive, nimble and tough naturally. Three of the features that are a deadly in any aspect of the game. With the introduction of 3rd classes I believe the Dragon Breath Rune Knight offers the most destruction above all the classes in-game. So ride that dragon of yours and listen up!
Build: WoE/PvP/PvM Nuke
Obviously the main skill Dragon Breath is utilized and complimented with both build and equipment. Dragon Breath damage mainly comes from your current HP and from your max SP. So basically the more HP/SP you have the better.
Dragon Training is mainly there for increased weight and Dragon Breath damage. Other bonuses like ASPD and spear damage are not essential in this build.
Spear Boomerang (13 cells if maxed) is your cheese harass skill. If you are not using Dragon Breath you should be using this to status lock, hit lock and cancel spell casting. I recommend using a Pike with 2x Magnolia Cards & 2x Metaller Cards enchanted.
Clashing Spiral is your leveling skill after changing to a Rune Knight. It is your second option if your opponent is wearing a fire armor(use Water Converter). Get buffed with Gloomy Shyness for more Ouch! I recommend using a Archer Skeleton Hunting Spear because it’s one handed and heavy.
Rune Mastery is mainly there for the Verkana Rune. Upon using the Verkana Rune you will cast Millennium Shield which will give you 2~4 shields to survive 1 Hit KOs. Pretty much ideal when battling a Shura.
- VIT 125
- INT 100
- DEX 110
- LUK 64
STR can be ignored due to the fact that most servers have Gym Passes(+200 weight limit). High VIT and 100 INT should be enough to get a decent chunk of damage especially to those caught off guard without fire armors. DEX is mainly for Dragon Breath casting time while the rest of the stats go to LUK.
- STR ??
- AGI ??
- VIT 125
- INT ??
- DEX 110
- LUK ??
The Dragon Breath build will take hits from the balance patch from what I’ve heard. So I’m not quite sure how to build it right after. Crucial points will obviously be the INT, since it no longer gives us frost immunity. The balance patch also brings improvements to Howling of Madragora Resist formula which I believe is very crucial with the VIT and LUK stat. VIT and DEX will most probably stay as is.
- Raydric Nydhorgg’s Shadow Garb(Increases SP by Level/3 + (Refine Rate * 10, 7% less damage from all elements)
- Variant Shoes
- Smokie Upgrade Clip(use of Hide skill)
- Horong Upgrade Clip(use of Sight skill)
Item Buffs you can use:
This build focuses on all aspects of the game, whether it be PvM,WoE,PvP or even MVPing. Equips are fine to use for all of those scenarios with minimal changes. The Smokie Upgrade Clip is for hiding obviously which some skills can be avoided while the Horong Upgrade Clip is for revealing hidden characters while adding a little pressure to those classes during chases.
If you’re a newbie then this is the build I suggest for you. It is easy to pilot but can have awesome results if played correctly.
I’ll leave your imagination to run wild with the market of MVP Cards we have today to improve this build. See you next Sunday for another session of THE BUILD.
I’d like to hear what you think. Comment Below!
