That’s it skills section done.
5. Stat Build
Ok there are a lot of possible stat builds ingame,BUT as we want to build the best PVE and PVP summoner here i explain the hp stat build.
Some usefull tips and notes(True only for summoners):
1.Each level you getting this stats:+20 HP,+6 MP,+4 ATK,+2 MATK,+2 DEF,Max Shield +70.
2.Each Str point gives you:+3 ATK,Each 15 points into Str you get 1% Critical rate.
3.Each Dex point gives you:+4 AR,each 15 points into Dex-1% Guard rate and 1% Critical rate,and every 100 Dex points you get 1% block rate.
4.Each Heal point gives you:+20 HP,DEf +1.5,Max PK shield +25.
5.Each Spr point gives you:+8 MP,+3 MATK.
Here explanation about that stats you need to put as you level:
DEX- Don’t put any points into Dex,Summoners don’t need it.
Spr- Add just enouth spr for your Twin Blades requements.
Str- The Str should be for your Twin Blades str requements too,but add always 2~4 points higher than it.
Heal- All remaming points shuold go into health-WHY?- You need to have high hp to be a good soloer,and for better tanking in DF/Dungeons.

6.Information About Gear
Ok this is a big section, and I devided it into some sub-titles.
I include here information about armors,weapon and rings/necklces/earings.
The Twin Blades is your main weapon, and you wanna it be strong and powerfull.
In the low levels no need to socket the weapons,start make them full slot from lv 24+,when you got enouth money for it.
Until level 66 put rhombus in the sockets(the 33 or the 44 ones-easy to get from Akris ),for lv 66,72,78 weapon put 4% posion damage(Also easy to get from Akris),and from lv 85+ put 5% gems(They not so high prices now….about 2~3.5m).
Start upgrade your weapon from lv 54-but not past +3.Until lv 85 upgrade only until + 3,the lv 85 and 95 need be +4/5,and for lv 105,115 nice to have +6/+7 AND for lv 130 +7 or higher.
WHY upgrade your weapons and not armors?Because the low levels armors add really low def each upgrade,and the weapons add you more damage.
The staff will be your secondary weapon if you want to go hybrid if not don’t mind reading this part.
Then you reset to hybrid level 97 you got enouth spr to use the level 30 staff,level 115 you be able to use the level 36 staff.
(If you want get good staff-noble/divine go to Loa SE corner and farm there on Aramon Lord boss.He got 30% chance to drop a noble/divine level 30 weapons,so after 1~2 hours you for sure get level 30 noble/divine staff).
Always full slot your staff’s and put inside 40/44 pyramids.
WHY?Because your magic damage is low and 5%/4% posion add less than 40 pyramids.
Never upgrade your staff’s past +4,no need to waste money on it,You not get a lot damage from it.
In 2moons there are 5 armors-pants.boots,gloves,armor(chest) and helmet.They improve your defence.
The armor and the helmet can be socket and other parts don’t.
I suggest start full slot your armor and helmet from level 30+,put 18/21 medials(easy to get from Akris) in the slots until level 90/100-then start put 25 medials,for level 115 and 130 set 29 or 33 will go(but 25 good too).
Then you upgrade your Armors to +4 the pants.boots and gloves get different bonuses:
Pants +4-3% all magic resistance.
Boots +4-3% guard rate.
Gloves +4-3% critical rate.
As the upgrade(+) higher the bonuses become higher-for +9 they stands on 10%.
Armor and helmet don’t have any bonus beside the base defence that become higher.
Until level 60 don’t upgrade your Armors-from level 60 start pimp a few but nothing past +3,for level 90 and 100 +4 set is nice to have and for 115 and 130 set +6/+7 always good.
Ok,here I include basic info about the legendary armor-that to get,there to get(drops) and that bonuses they got.
There are 3 legendary sets(L1,L2 and L3),and 2 legendary helmets without sets(Level 70 and 71).
The MUST set to get is L3 pants,boots and gloves(Recommneded +4 them all),all others are optinial.

Lv 88 Armor-Def +48,Lighting resistance +13%-drops from Klaus(Avalon Island).
Lv 90Helmet-Max HP +436,Max MP 388-drops from all monsters in Oread’s Tomb.
Also all L3 parts can be obtained by Favnil/Oread/Illipia drop.
Level 70,71 Legendary Helmets:
Lv 70 Vanzer Deva Helmet-Def +12,MP +100,Ice resistance +7%.
Lv 71 Arc Deva Helmet-HP +180,MP +125,Lighting resistance +6%.
This helmets can be obtained by doing Level 60 boss quests(Get from Berks in Braiken and Dekalor in Loa).
The helmets come full slot already.
In some important points in the game you will need to make yourself resistance gear,Here i explain THEN make it,HOW make it and for THAT make it.
The first resistance set you’ll need to make is curse res set for Lv 90 Magic Field of Crevice Dungeon(For round 10).
In level 90 use one of level 70 legendary helmets with 8% curse res gems+3 Curse resistance Necklaces+Dark eye.
For later on make level 91 armor with 8/7% gems for full 75% curse res.
The 2 next sets:The fire and the posion you’ll make by level 100 mostly for tanking bosses in DF.
For posion set use full slotted level 91 and 92 armor and helmet with 8/7% posion res gems+Dark eye.
For fire set use full slot level 92 helmet with 9% fire res gems+3 fire res necklaces+Dark eye.Also usefull for farming on Favnil(For level 100 quest and later).
The 2 last sets:The Ice and Lighting sets you’ll make but level 115 for abyss-You need to tank bosses there.
For Ice set use level 92 helmet with 9% ice gems+3 ice resistance Necklaces+Dark eye.
For Lighting set use full slot level 91 and 92 Armor and helmet with 7/8% lighting res gems+Dark eye.
3.Rings,Necklaces and Earings
Here i explain what accesioneries you need to wear…
I recommending as your attack not so high wear 2 attack rings—>Of course the best is the highest ones,and better 1 of them posion attack and one psyhical.
This rings add you aroudn 100~200 more damage which is nice(not in low level of course).
I recommending using the 1 special necklace—>Until level 85 the use the Akris defence necklace after use Dark Eye.
Also add 1 defence necklace for your level…MORE def never hurts.
Most of earings has -con(heal) stat which is really high on level 80 and higher earings,so i don’t recommending using them at all.
The pur earings is other word. They are rare and NOT cheap but the pure +con and +str earings is the BEST!!!Start buying/farming for pure earings from level 100 as In low level you don’t so need Earings…
