    I decided on a new samurai build:

    4 atk passive
    6 desperado
    7 attack aura
    7 self heal
    6 over use

    Alignment Lawful.


    I would really like to see what your samurai builds are going to be. Samurais have great direct damage abilities, but very few self support / utility systems and I'm curious how others plan to deal with this.
  3. Katilyn Active Member

    Sounds like a solide build, except i wouldnt go with overuse as a samurai, take divine armor instead.

    Anyway, question to all: what role will Samurai's play in groups?

    I think they will work best as melee DPS. They have magic abilities, but from looking at their skills and gear selection, it seems like they will have higher melee dmg.

    What stat should i stack? str or int?

    of course, why didnt i think of that? When fighters get that new skill which increases damage from the front? answer this too please.

    Here's a handy Elemental Slash macro:

    [IMG]

    This macro will use 1 of your elemental slashes every time you press it depending on which one isn't on cool down. It prioritizes top to bottom so put your highest damage slash on top. I put 4 points in ice slash so I put it on top. My macro favors ice slash when it is not on cool down.

    [IMG]

    This saves you some space on your bars, and you will probably be using all 4 elemental slashes on targets that have high pdef or low mdef. I keep all slashes on my bars still just to see the cooldowns, but they aren't keybound buttons.

    Nice tip :)
    What are your impressions of Samurai so far?
    How does the katana compare with other weapons?
    Hows the forward dash?
    Would be great if you get chance to record a lil preview vid on the skills and attack styles too :)
  14. Hazelyn Active Member

    from sparring with Drem a bit, the dash seems cool, but it gets interrupted easily by mages if you say ... just arrow them if they try to dash at you. It's somewhat predictable since you know they want to use it. It's a bit flawed in that regard in my opinion, however it may be better against other match ups? or certain players. Just my opinion on seeing it. This weakness is cancelled out by Divine Armor or similar effects, of course, as far as interrupting it. But it's still easy to hit them on the way or just move away.
  15. Dremlock Well-Known Member

    Samurai has good dmg potential. I'm using a +7 SR4 katana (110 patk) and hit Loitering statues in the back for 3k a swing, 6k hard hits (auto attack).

    It's by far the most complicated class I've played. I can go into more detail about this in a bit.


    Dash moves you forward the distance of 1 sprint jump in about half a second. 3 sec CD, cost 10 OD.

    Hello everyone.

    A female cannot be a Samurai. A Samurai is a term used exclusively to define men. A female of the bushi class would be called an Onna-bugeisha.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Onna-bugeisha

    I thought this was extremely interesting and potentially belongs here, seeing a female character is the first Samurai. :3
