THE BUILD: “War Machine” – Mado Mechanic Build

Ragnarok Online WoE Mechanic 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 Mado Mechanic is one of the most under played WoE Character despite its awesome potential. It is slowly gaining popularity due to specific skills that dominate the WoE scene. From masters of brute force to masters of steel, fire and ice ,this build will overshadow the smith tree. This Build focuses on controlling pushes and defending choke points.

Build: WoE & PvM

Codename: War Machine

The Breakdown:

Your main skills will be Arm Cannon and Cold Slower. You will be using Arm Cannon to Push and fend off Pushes. For now it is ground targeted, so use it to your advantage. Cold Slower is your Crowd Control Ability. When you find yourself under Magic Strings I suggest you spam this like crazy over your enemies and watch them drop.

Your Defensive Skills will be Neutral Barrier, Stealth Field and the Front and Back Slides. Neutral Barrier can block any ranged skill except AoE Magic. Stealth Field is used to hide crucial units in WoE like Guard Stones or Emperiums from breakers. Use your slides to avoid getting mobbed and fall back when you have to.

The Balance Patch will fix bugs that greatly boost Hovering and Pilebunker. Hovering will let you avoid getting trapped by Vacuum Extreme and hit by Windmill along with many other skills. While Pilebunker will dispel many acolyte and swordsman job skills. Royal Guards will hate us indefinitely lol.

Use Elemental Shift lvl 1 (fire convert) during clashes to avoid getting Dragon Breath raped.

Suicidal Destruction is what makes a Mado Mechanic.  This will take out anything in a 9 x 9 radius that has an HP of anything from 120k (with a proper build) and below. Useful in situations when enemies are regrouping. Dive in with Neutral Barrier on and let one GO!

A good Mado Mechanic knows when to use Suicidal Destruction. It is very rarely used as a last resort skill because you should be using it when you are in advantage and in disadvantage.

An Advantageous situation is when you are winning a counter push with your guild and the enemy front line is weakened. Lead the front and get into the back line enemy units and use Suicidal Destruction to get rid of a big chunk of their army.

In a Disadvantageous situation is when you are defending a castle and you’re defending units are getting thin. To buy time for your allies, you flag back behind the enemy and use Suicidal Destruction on majority of their units. Their front line may get through but their survival rate is lessened because you just killed their reinforcements.

A good Mado Mechanic should know how to play every situation.

The Build:

Pre-Balance Patch

  • STR 105
  • VIT 120
  • INT 110
  • DEX 65
  • LUK the rest goes here

High points of VIT is needed to maintain high survivability. DEX is kept at a decent amount for spamming skills like Arm Cannon and Cold Slower while a great amount of INT is needed to take down characters like Rune Knights, Royal Guards and Suras.

Post-Balance Patch

  • STR 105
  • VIT 120
  • INT 70
  • DEX 105
  • LUK the rest goes here

You get more DEX now due to Suicidal Destruction is now influenced by cast time reductions with INT and DEX. You will also have to lowe INT because it doesn’t give frozen immunity anymore. A decent amount is needed anyway for Suicidal Destruction.

The Equipment:

Item Buffs you can use:

Food buffs (+30 STR,VIT,INT & DEX), Increase HP Potion, Increase SP Potion, Soul Scroll(increase max HP & SP for 30 mins), Cranial Scroll, Immune Scroll, Battle Scroll.

By stacking Demi Human resists and Neutral resists you can survive most Extrimity Fists at full HP even in big fights due to Neutral Barrier.

The Errende Ebecee Accessories is for auto procing Pnuema to defend against ranged attacks just incase you lose Nuetral Barrier. A very good skill to have when diving into enemy ranks for Self Destruction.

Dee’s Comments:

This build is my personal build for Mechanics that choose the pure MADO path. When the balance patch hits us we will be buffed even more which will be game changing for us.

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!

  3. Dee hindi kasya yung stats sa post balance build mo sa mado. Pero I think im gonna try using mado when the Skill rebalancing comes, sounds good. Only problem I have with mado is Guillotine crosses getting close to me

    Posted by Reydiculous | June 3, 2012, 8:04 pm
    • kasya dude. kakadouble check ko lng. kasama bonuses sa build n yan. guillotine crosses shouldn’t be a problem just use your slides and cold slower them to slow them down and set them up for arm cannon.

      medyo scarey ung mga GX n may berserk. pero kung may sorc naman kayo wala na un.

      Posted by deesrojournal | June 4, 2012, 12:12 am
    • dee bkit may pre balance patch at post balance patch alin po ba ang susundin ko?… mas ok ba if mas mataas ang int sa dex?

      Posted by mecha intern | June 6, 2012, 9:06 pm
      • pre balance is kung ano meron ngaun. which is pag 100 int frozen immune ka. pag dating ng balance patch mawala to so ang mangyayari is mawawala ang INT ng most classes. depends on your distribution ng stats. welcome to the site.

  15. pwede po bang sa skill tree yung sa SD type agad kunin ko saka na yung mga arm canon saka yung ibang offensive skills

    Posted by Despepsia | August 8, 2012, 4:40 pm
    • i wouldn’t actually advise it. but if you really want to rush SD get cold slower at least. you would also want to get neutral barrier while your at it since it makes using SD easier. welcome to the site despepsia!

      Posted by deesrojournal | August 14, 2012, 1:08 pm
  16. thanks for the guide dee, looking forward on using the post-balanced stats.

    Posted by ted | September 2, 2012, 2:55 am
    • mainly strength and dex. depends on how you built your whitesmith. you may have str finished so i think catching up on dex would be better to around 90. then you can finish off any other stats to 150 especially int. welcome to the site ted!

      Posted by deesrojournal | September 3, 2012, 10:37 am

    Posted by emjey | September 28, 2012, 5:05 pm
  30. Sir antayq po ung discussion nyo sa hybrid mecha .. SD and Rammer Type MS

    Posted by ` Sir One - | October 1, 2012, 3:45 pm
  31. Hello Dee! This is a bit OT but I guess this is the perfect place to ask this question. Do Mastersmiths qualify to the blacksmith ranking or this ranking is exclusive for blacksmiths only? Thank you!

    Posted by Dizzy | October 13, 2012, 1:43 am
  32. Awesome! Thanks a lot Dee!

    Posted by Dizzy | October 16, 2012, 1:27 am
  33. Mukhang bubuhayin ko na si Mado ko ulit and will try your build. Yung build ko neto is no INT eh. Pure STR + DEX lng, then VIT yung remaining stats. hehe. Pang Knuckle Boost and Pile Bunker lng. Nakakainis kasi yung Suicidal Destruction, kelangan ko pa ulit kumuha ng mado sa magic gear NPC. T___T
