This is a dekan guide for the most played dekan build’s.
I’ll explain build’s for strength knight’s, sage’s, sepa and intelligence dekan’s.
This guide isn’t meant as a help for lowlevel dekans, it’s more meant as a help for highlevel dekans.

I saw alot of dekan guide’s which were incomplete or overall just crap. I always posted my opinion there but I hadn’t went very far with that over time. Actually im bored of it, so I’ll give you some of my battle tactic’s and build’s.
I made the build’s with my own idea’s. I thought long about every single skill and how it can belong to the "greater use".
I discussed alot with other dekan friend’s. Thank’s to Beleren at this point.

Symbols for Skills:

! = Recommended to make lvl 7
!! = Recommended to make lvl 7 if you can afford it

Short information about the skills:
– All skill’s which can be made level 6, should be made level 6!
– I just listed the PURE skill point’s stated in one skill not the level’s with skill stone’s.
– The ses’s on the picture are just random added by the skillcalculator, i dont have any influence on them!

Ok so let’s get started. The first build I want to explain is the strength dekan build! (Including knight, sage and sepa)
I am myself a strength dekan so i know very well about it.

1) Stats:

There isn’t a best build of course but some recommended for level 99.

– 3 Str / 1 Vit:

It’s the most stated build from all. But actually it’s very weak, if you are new to rohan. You need to afford good equipment to get a high Vit and PD.

(3/1->50)(4/2->60)(5/1->70)(6/2->99)

– 3 Str / 1 Vit Hybrid:

Well, this is the same build like the one before just with the easy differnce that you add half/half after 50.
This is a build for newbie’s. Enough damage, high HP even without good equipment.
Even myself had this build till 99. I even had it when I worn +5s. It’s a pretty nice build.

(3/1->50)(3/3->70)(4/4->99)

– Full Strength:

Well, i think the titel say’s everything…
This build is only recommended if you can afford VERY GOOD equipment. I recommend to only go full strength on 99 with full +6s or even +10s, godly zhen (max melee with like 50 bonus stats Str/Vit), high str earrings/googles and all talisman’s.

(Full Strength)

– Strength with base Vit:

I would say this is one of the best kind’s of build’s. You’ll have some HP and a realy great damage. But it’s recommended to be high graded equiped. That mean’s +6s or higher.

(Base Vit (Example 100 base vit)/Rest Str)

Note: Don’t add Dex at any of this build’s. Endgame equipment and Item Mall stuff will give you enough Dex to reach around 300 selfbuffed which is all you need.

3a) Equipment:

– Max melee zhen with damage drop.

– Max melee zhen with weapon attack OR Max melee zhen with critical percent OR Max melee dagger with critical percent.

– Max vit zhen with damage drop.

– Max hp zhen with damage drop. (Not needed but nice if you can afford it)

4a) Gameplay:

So with what weapon you should roll? It’s actually pretty much up to you. If you like to start you combo with a maxed out Forefoot Swing carry your hp zhen. If you want to deal great damage and don’t care for defence against sudden attack’s, you should roll with a weapon attack or critical percent zhen. And my favorite, the damage drop zhen. 40%-45% less damage and great damage!

Ok, imagin you find a good target. Let’s say a guardien. Don’t flame, it’s just an example!

You start attacking him. Use toxic potion. Equip your max HP zhen and use Forefoot Swing. Use Dragon’s Tail and Zhen Counter to get some bonus damage before your main damage combo can start. Stun your enemy with Penetrate to initiate your combo! Equip your chosen combo weapon (crit dagger or weapon attack / crit zhen) and use Fast Shadow.

-> Toxic Potion to avoid poting of your enemy in your combo time.
-> Forefoot Swing as a startup. With level 99 it’s another 3-4k damage which hurt’s alot. Use it as an extra nuke skill against high physical defence classes, templar’s and dhan’s. Remember to equip your hp zhen before you use it!
-> Use Dragon’s Tail and Zhen Counter to do some extra damage. They do both like 2-3 times the damage of your normal attack so always use them when they are ready. Note: Don’t use them while Fast Shadow is on.
-> Penetrate is one of your best attack skill’s. Try to hold it back for your Fast Shadow combo.
-> Fast Shadow + Lunacy + Forced Lock + Dragon’s Nail + Combo weapon!

You may ask now what I mean with "combo weapon". Here we go:

[WA Zhen]: My personal favorite combo weapon. It’s the same discussion like "Sudden Death or Blood Effect". I like the constant high damage output more then relying on crit spike’s. You’ll hit around 300-350 attack speed with really huge constant damage and the chance on high damage spike crit’s! You’ll slightly lagg your enemy!
[Crit Zhen]: Same damage as with your damage drop zhen but higher chance on high spike crit’s! You’ll slightly lagg your enemy!
[Dagger]: With this combo you’ll achieve 200-250 attack speed mean’s you hit 4-5 time’s a second. Crit’s make this combo deadly and the stun’s from Dragon’s Nail will lagg your opponent pretty hard. But your regular hit’s and crit’s will noticeable drop in damage!

Imagine the guardien uses OS or CS. Use Dark Spell and sleep him to avoid this skill’s.

-> Dark Spell is used to avoid troublesome skill’s.

The guardien stun’s you or someone root’s you. Use dragon skin to avoid damage under stun and leave extricate for root’s.

-> Dragon Skin to avoid damage under stun, Extricate to avoid root’s.

Now your getting alot of damage because of OS + CS. You cant avoid it and you think you can’t get away fast enough. So easily switch to your max vit zhen. This will give you alot more physical defence

and a slight hp push. Your vit weapon only work’s against melee classes!
Ok, but now a dhan crosses your way. Dhan crit’s are armor spiking, so don’t use your vit zhen. Instead use your HP zhen and Heal/Pot. That will give you a huge hp push with which you might survive the dhan!

-> Switch weapon’s in critical situation’s.

At this point i want to explain Health Funnel fast.
Always use it if you hit 3/5 of your max HP. Including casting time and damage input you’ll be at 1/2 hp when channling is over. That’s still enough to heal you up to around 5/6 again.

-> Dont use Health Funnel to late or it won’t heal enough! If you are under 1/2 hp and getting alot damage input, USE POTS!

Ok now you die and lose Evolve. Most dekan’s think they are useless now. FALSE!

Cast Separation. Activate Frozen and the show can begin.
Separation is deadly in combination with Forced Lock, Fast Shadow and a crit or weapon attack zhen.

-> Use Separation when debuffed.
-> Fast Shadow and Forced Lock will make your damage output alot higher.
-> Use Frozen and hope you slow your enemy with it so you can pull off a whole Fast Shadow on him. It’s a slight bonus damage too, of course.

Now there are some combination’s you can make when using Separation and normal zhen skills.
Work with debuffing Seperation and use your normal zhen skill’s in fight’s. Or easily start a Separation fight with Forefoot Swing and Penetrate then buff Seperation.
Just one example how it can look like:

Toxic Potion -> Forefoot Swing -> Penetrate -> Seperation (Activate Frozen) -> Fast Shadow -> When Penetrate stun runs out use Soul Divider -> Debuff Seperation -> Penetrate -> Forefoot Swing

That’s just one example, of course. You don’t need to debuff Seperation.
Another combination would be:

(In Seperation mode already)

Toxic Potion -> Soul Divider -> Fast Shadow -> Soul Divider if your enemy stay’s as long -> Dark Spell if your enemy run’s so he don’t get away -> Debuff Seperation -> Penetrate -> Forefoot Swing

Or if your enemy stay’s all the time:

Toxic Potion -> Soul Divider -> Fast Shadow -> Soul Divider -> Debuff Seperation -> Penetrate -> Forefoot Swing -> Dark Spell -> Seperation -> Wait for Dark Spell’s end -> Soul

Divider -> Fast Shadow -> Debuff Seperation -> Penetrate -> Forefoot Swing

As you can see, you can do alot of effective combination’s to get a high damage output.
You can make a never ending circle with all these skill’s but only if you have the right enemy of course.

=! Separation does nearly the same damage with Frozen and the higher attack speed as in Evolve! You just don’t have nice skill’s like Suction and Dragon’s Nail plus your hp is lower!
=! Separation doesn’t reduce melee. It reduces the base damage of your weapon!
=! Seperation isn’t 60% faster then Evolve because of Lunacy. so you only get 25-35% attack speed more!

DRAGON SAGE!

- 5 Frozen
- 1 Taunt
- 1 Separation
- 1 Health to Mana
- 5 Dragon’s Power (!)
- 5 Forefoot Swing (!!)

- 5 Dragon skin

- 5 Zhen Mastery (!)

- 5 Splitter (!!)
- 5 Impenetrable (!!)
- 5 Moving Shadow (!!)
- 5 Heavy Wave
- 5 Dragon Wing
- 1 Imprint
- 1 Mana Guard
- 5 Rapid Lock
- 5 Death Flow (!!)
- 5 Full Blown Attack

3b) Equipment:

- Max melee zhen with weapon attack OR Max melee zhen with critical percent OR Max melee dagger with critical percent.

- Max vit zhen with damage drop.

- Max hp zhen with damage drop. (Not needed but nice if you can afford it)

4b) Gameplay:

(Recommended to read Dragon Knight gameplay)

Most of the gameplay and skill’s are similar to the Dragon Knight so i won’t explain them again.

So let’s start with some of the differnce’s.

One reason why some of the str build’s choose sage is because sage has 1 attack skill more, alot faster movement, more physical defence and the most important point, he can split his attacks.

-> Moving Shadow/Rapid Lock/Splitter:
One of the deadliest combination’s.
Always use your combo weapon while Moving Shadow is on.
Rapid Lock add’s some bonus damage to your crit’s. Of course they aren’t as high as crit’s of Dragon Knight’s because Rapid Lock only add’s dex/int but it’s still some bonus damage. (Like 800 selfbuffed PvE so not that great)
Now to the funniest part, Splitter. Wow i just love that skill in combination with Moving Shadow. With a dagger you get out around 2-3 AOE’s per second. That’s a massive lowbie killer in PvP and a good farming methode in PvE.
Remember that suction work’s for AOE’s so it will heal you for every monster hit with one AOE.

-> Splitter good for farming and lowbie killing.

Well, Impenetrable is pretty self explaining. It give’s you alot pd which is good for farming at high level area’s and in PvP against str classes.

Coming to Imprint. A good skill to detect vanished Players. Good against dhan’s.

Death Flow and Full Blown Attack:

Make’s your overall damage output alot higher so always use them when ready but try to use them in combination with Fast Shadow.
Let’s take a look at Dragon Wing. This skill is pretty underrated. Everyone know’s the problem of running enemy’s or even too fast enemy’s. This problem is done with Dragon Wing. You’ll get after enemy’s and away from enemy’s fast enough. Mean’s you’ll kill more and won’t die too much.

At the Separation part we have a main difference compared to the Dragon Knight. The missing stun skill! Bad against running enemy’s but on the other hand we have more damage output due Heavy Wave.

Always use Heavy Wave when ready to increase your overall damage!

Same combination’s as Dragon Knight. Just with the easy differnce that you use Death Flow and Full Blown Attack instead of Penetrate and Heavy Wave instead of Soul Divider.

=! Separation is the full 60% faster!

SEPARATION!

2c) Separation build skill’s:

- 5 Frozen
- 1 Taunt
- 1 Separation
- 5 Dragon’s Power (!)
- 5 Forefoot Swing (!!)
- 5 Sepa Slash (!!)
- 5 Nail Zhen
- 5 Health Funnel
- 5 Dragon’s Skin
- 5 Health to Mana
- 5 Mana to Health

- 5 Zhen Mastery (!)
- 5 Blue Defense (!!)
- 5 Critical Immunity (!)
- 1 Extricate
- 5 Mist
- 5 Forced Lock (!)
- 5 Penetrate
- 5 Toxic Potion
- 5 Fast Shadow
- 5 Soul Divider (!!)
- 5 Dark Spell

3c) Equipment:

- Max melee zhen with damage drop.

- Max melee zhen with weapon attack OR Max melee zhen with critical percent.

- Max vit zhen with damage drop.

- Max hp zhen with damage drop. (Not needed but nice if you can afford it)

4c) Gameplay:

In my Opinion Separation is one of the funniest gameplay’s you can have at the dekan class.
Actually there isn’t very much to explain anymore. The most tactic’s did I mentioned before already, so I’ll just give a short look into the Separation world.

Well, your main damage output come’s from your Fast Shadow combo’s like always.

Separation + Fast Shadow + Forced Lock + Frozen + Combo Zhen

This combination is as fast as the Fast Shadow + Dagger combo of Str dekan’s and it does like the same damage too.
Overall the attack speed is 25-35% higher too so your constant damage can hold up with a str knight.

Sepa Slash is your best skill. It does like two times more damage then Penetrate so always try to use it when ready. It will raise your damage output by alot.

Now to a little new part of dekan’s, the Health to Mana. In the other build’s I didn’t recommended to skill them due suction. Of course sage’s don’t have mana leech also, but they can hold up their mana better then sepa dekan’s. Anyways, it would be a waste of skillpoint’s for them.
The reason why it’s recommended for sepa dekan’s to skill it is, because you can use it in combination with Mana to Health, which is quiet usefull to hold your less HP up. Overall you get more damage in separation mode. Mean’s you’ll be short on hp backup’s so this should be a welcomed method.

Well, we know how to use Dark Spell and Toxic Potion already so i won’t explain it again.

Coming to Blue Defense now. Acctually this isn’t a realy good skill and not recommended to skill at Evolve build’s but pretty usefull for our Sepa dekan. Sepa dekan’s have much less physical defence then Evolve builded dekan’s so even 30-35 damage dropped is nice. Another nice feature of Blue Defense is, that it drop’s the minimum damage to 0. Mean’s if you run into a group of lowbie’s and they hit you for minimum damage, they’ll hit 0′s. Pretty nice to destroy lowbie guild’s in tb.
Btw, if you can afford it make it level 7. Will be more comfortable for you.

Another nice skill for Sepa dekan’s is Mist. It can be used to get away or start hidden attack’s like an assassin so you always have the surprising moment on your side. ;D

The combination’s you can do with Sepa are quiet the same as with the Dragon Knight. You dont need to skill Forefoot Swing and Penetrate of course but i would recommend it because of the slight extra damage and another stun which you’ll have then.

Ok… We are coming to the end of Strenght build’s already. I hope the guide was quiet usefull till now. 

How to: Intelligence Dekan

1) Stats:

- 3 Int / 1 Vit

Oh yea the good old 3/1 build. Effective but a little bit squishy. You should try to get good equipment.

(3/1->50)(5/1->60)(4/2->70)(6/2->99)

- Full Intelligence

The build with the most damage output by far but very very squishy. You should be able to get 10′s and high graded equip so you won’t die as much.

(Full Intelligence)

- Int with base Vit

One of my favorite build’s because it isn’t that squishy and your damage output is still high. But still, you should be able to afford very good equipment otherwise you won’t go very far. Recommended for player’s who want to have a little bit more HP.

(Base Vit (Example 100 base vit)/Rest Int)

2) Skills:

- 1 Frozen
- 1 Taunt
- 1 Dragon’s Power
- 5 Forefoot Swing (!)
- 1 Health to Mana
- 5 Mana to Health
- 5 Health Drain (!)
- 5 Breath (!)
- 5 Health Funnel
- 5 Dragon Skin

- 5 Karma
- 5 Blue Defence (!!)
- 5 Critical Immunity (!)
- 1 Extricate
- 5 Evolve (!)
- 5 Mana Guard (!)
- 1 Imprint
- 5 Rapid Lock (!!)
- 5 Death Flow
- 5 Full Blown Attack
- 5 Moving Shadow (!!)
- 1 Suction
- 1 Dragon Mantle
- 5 Splitter
- 5 Impenetrable (!!)
- 5 Dragon’s Wing

3) Equipment:

- Max magic attack zhen with damage drop.

- Int dagger with critical percent. (PvE & PvP)

- Max vit zhen with damage drop.

- Max hp zhen with damage drop. (Not needed but nice if you can afford it)

4) Gameplay:

For this build you’ll have to switch alot between the MA zhen and the Int dagger. The weapon you need to use depend’s on the moment you’re in. If you’re getting alot of damage it’s better to use the magic attack zhen or even the vit zhen. When you want to Breath someone you need to equip the magic attack zhen of coure (magic attack zhen > int zhen for Breath damage), while you need to switch to the dagger when you attack your enemy with melee attack’s.

So at first let’s talk about your two main damage skill’s, Breath and Health Drain.
They are spike damage skill’s, reaching up to 15-20k PvP damage together. So always use them when they are ready. Be sure your magic attack zhen is equiped. As a third nuke you can use Forefoot Swing. Be sure your max hp zhen is equiped before using this skill.

Now we are coming to your second damage source. You can raise your damage output by alot when using Rapid Lock plus int – crit dagger. With Moving Shadow you’ll get lots of bonus spike crits out of it and Splitter make’s your crit’s an AOE by chance.

Another nice skill is Dragons Wing. This skill makes you faster then every other class expect of Ranger, making it easier to fight against high dps classes. Run, nuke, run, nuke.
Also making you able to avoid some of the debuffs.

When you are getting alot of damage just activate your Mana guard. On high levels it can tank around 30k damage. Using Health to mana and Mana to health in combination, makes you backup your hp very quickly. I recommend to use int/psy/vit rings to make this tactic effective.
And of course you have your Health Funnel as another backup.

Karma is a nice mass PvP skill. You can revive your mate’s with 75% hp/mp which can make a huge difference.

Comment: Some people go Knight for Toxic Potion and Sleep, so you can nuke 2 times without having your enemy poting. This build is just leaking on defence and regular attack damage.

Well, thats it for int dekan already.
