Pvp Asura Champion Guide :D

22 posts in this topic

~ The asura champion~

The asura champion, what can i say? Theese babies can do 999k damage a hit. This can own almost ANYONE! They are called Asura Champions because of there deadly Asura Strike attack. To get a champion, pick the acolyte class, then the monk class, then re-birth!

Read on for equips, builds, and anything else needed to make an epic asura champ!

~ Builds ~

My Build

Str= 200(+9 Bonus) For total of 209

Agi= 180(+9 Bonus) For total of 189

Vit= 89(+7 Bonus) For total of 96

Int= 12(+7 bonus) For total of 19

Dex= 200(+10 Bonus) For total of 210

Luk= 1(+3 Bonus) For total of 4 luk!

Build 2

Str= 200

Agi= 195 ASPD

Vit= Leftovers

Int= Asura only calculates up to 6k SP, but i'd make it a wee bit higher(mines only 8ksp) In case you get pressured, also you need extra to use finger offensive, your going to need it!

Dex= Instant cast(150 TOTAL, so if you have +10 dex, make your dex 140 to make it 150)

Luk= None is needed

~Equips~

1. Weapons

I use maces. Maces are easy to obtain, are 4 slotted all the time, and look cooler.

To get 4 slotted maces, go to pay_dun00 and kill skeletons, they drop 4 slotted maces 100% of the time!

Mace one will be your asura mace. People always debate over 3 hydra 1 skeli, or 2 hydra 2 skeli. Well, right now, im seeing more of 3 hydra 1 skeli. But, either one can do 999k damage with the right equips!

Mace two is your freezing mace. You need to freeze people if they have any cards that give resitance to ghost property(Ghost ring card, anyone?)

Well, a good way to freeze is getting 4 Marina Cards, Marinas spawn in iz_dun01

Each card gives you a 5% Chance to freeze! So, 4 will give you a 20% CHANCE!!!!

When freezing, dont use normal attack, use Finger Offensinve!

2. Armor

Get any armor with slots. In the slot, all you need, is a pest card, that way, when your using finger offensive, and your fighting, lets say, a sinx. There going to attack you TONS of times. The pest card has a 3% chance to infect your opponent with Stone Curse.

What stone curse does(tooken from ratemyserver.net)

Effect: Has a (20% + 4%*SkillLV) chance of causing the Stone Curse effect to the targeted enemy. The Stone Curse effect changes the targets element into Earth 1, gives +25% MDEF and -50% Def and reduces the targets HP by 1% of Maximum HP every 5 seconds (cannot drop below 25% of Maximum HP). Boss monsters cannot be Stone Cursed. Lex Aeterna and Steal cannot be used on a Stone Cursed target. Range is 2!! cells. From LV 6 on it no longer uses up a Gemstone if it fails.

You wont need a gemstone, since you are using it on a card.

(Note* Apparently you can use Flaming skull instead of pest card, and replace it with something sexier, like a marc card)

3. Headgear

Any headgear that will give more strength is needed. Baphomet horns and Golden Dragon Helm will work.

123pasty had this to say

and having alice doll or bapho horns will do more damage with asura, along with masquerade. odin's mask too if you can afford it

Listen to that also. Erm, ya...

Well, that all! This was the first update! Woot!\

ily all!

I would think if you are in fact only out to asura to set up your mace to reflect that, if you plan on using a freezing mace you asura mace should contain 2 hydra/1Skel/1DrainLiar card as it will boost you damage with adding another multiplier to your damage calculation. Also you may want to try using gears that also add damage to Water Property monsters amplifying your Asura damage. Such as:

- Roween +10% damage on water property (garment)

- Galion +5% damage on water property (accesory)

I don't recommend relying on Asura its mroe a crutch then a straategy but if you are going to use it make sure its going to kill them if not you are a sitting duck without certain cards.

Dracula card + kiels = rape.

More sp when you hit.

So when you do resort to asura, you can still have sp to do it again.

This is not effective. Its the same as trying a Triple Bloody Exorcising mace.

Racial multipliers are greater than elemental multipliers when it comes to cards, therefore 3 of any race card should be combined with a elemental or size card to maximize damage. There are no stipulations against your Garment and Accessory cards though and those I would recommend trying

*Looks at d equips sect.* 4 Marina cards? Im not sure but i tink dat will barely help u freeze much :huh: Marina gives u a 5% chance to freeze, as well as a 95% chance to fail, therefore if u did place 4 marinas, your fail chance is totally wacko. I also noticed u didnt quite state anyting about shields :blink: Now that nameless is open, try getting flame skull. It also helps to stone curse allowing u to use another card for your amor :P Great guide ;)

I'm not sure how or where you got the information that racial cards outdamage elemental cards as they give the same damage multiplier and if the targethas that element (ie Frozen=Water) It will benefit you just as much as a Hydra would. The Most damage you can get off of a target when frozen would be dealt with a 2 Hydra/Tgen/Drainliar Mace as only the hydras stack the rest will combine with each other by multiplying their %. The only thing is the mace is not practical for anything but Asura on a Frozen target, that is true, but if you are a "PURE" asura build you won't be doing much else so why not get the most out of your utter waste of SP?

Marina card only states that it gtives you %5 Chane to freeze, so 4 would allow a 20% chance to freeze, 80% not to, and finger offensive is around 4 hits each cast(i think) so freezing wouldnt take to long if you know how to spam

Maybe im wrong, eh. First guide xD

And uhh...shields? I totally forgot i could wield a shield with a mace, thanks for pointing that out *gets ready to hunt for a valkyrie shield*

Flame skull, not bad, but, isnt it pricey? Im un-sure, 50 mil is a LOT to me, but im a poor bastid xD

Thanks for the critcism

For freezing, you should get a completely separate weapon.

Flame skull is easy to hunt, cause abbey is open now.

To be a good asura champ, you need *Im just making this up on the spot* a weapon with..

1) mace with sk sk sk sk

2) mace with dracula dracula tg hydra

Freeze + asura + sp from dracula + more freezing.

Try your damage on a Salamander then, with 3 racial cards and a elemental card, then with 3 elemental cards and a racial card.

The damage depends all on the level of element the monster has.

Therefore, wouldn't it be better to assume that a size modifier would compliment the -50% Def from being frozen?

And not only that, what if the person gets STONED instead of FROZEN? You would be missing out on your damage even then! A good champ would rely on both to get the elemental property of a person to change from Ghost to Water/Earth, and an even better one to factor in a def loss using size modifiers.

EDIT: I eat my own words as I just tested sac with it (+10 pike with double bloody boned saharic) and it gives as much damage as my assaulter spear on a frozen target (in some cases more, if the person is wearing a devi[<---cant confirm that yet]) but man....this opens up entirely new possibilities for weap card combinations that I never thought of before

Flame skull gives a chance of casting stun, curse, blind, or stone curse when hit. Goes in shield. A couple major flaws with this, though..

1. You rely on being hit, which can hurt depending on the class you go up against. SB sinx, MR pally, and champ all rely on burst damage, and your chance-on-being-hit is going to suck against them.

2. You rely on being hit WITHOUT a thara, that's an additional 30% damage you're taking. Better hope you're dueling a combo champ or something else that'll do a lot of hits and not much damage.

3. Three out of four statuses won't even change their armor element. Stun, curse, and blind are useless if you're dueling a GR user. Stone curse works if they have low int, but you have to wait till they fully stone. You're relying on a 5% chance, but there are cards with higher chances, i.e. pest with 77+ int (9%) or dark frame (6%) if you'd like to keep your thara. But I'd probably prefer using the quad weapon to inflict status unless you had a garm card.

Also, if you're trying to reach max aspd, knuckles have lower weapon delay for monk classes than maces, so using a 4-slotted +0 Waghnak is ok for marinas, too. I don't know the prevalence of swordbreakers, WS cards, or whitesmiths here, but if that's an issue, maces might still be a better choice since they're naturally unbreakable.

Let me give you some info around, skip :)

1. MR = Martyr Recokning, but maybe some people here are more familiar with [sacrifice] Pally :P .

2. Combo Champ is rare, AFAIK. So far, I only seen some DD SinX who dealt low damage, while others dealt quite a damage. Not to mention the all-around Assasin Damascus.

3. WS card is quite common nowadays, since donation's open. Whitesmiths and Swordbreakers are quite rare.

@topic

I got a few things to say:

1. Since you got +9 Str in total, try getting a Antique Firelock on you Tidal since it'll boost your attack (thus your Ashura) ;)

2. Giant Whisper on your Wool also useful for raising your attack. But if you aren't using Tidal+Wool combo, you could using Skeleton Manteau for adding some Str, Dex, and Luk.

3. If your opponent doesn't like to hide and you got a fast connection, try using Seeker card on your Shield (preferably Strong Shield for it's anti-knockback) and do some Body Relo and cast Stone Curse on your opponents when you caught them off guard.

4. Maya P helps you alot in finding a Cloaking/Hiding opponent. Combo with Ruwach until they're tired of hiding lol.

5. For accessory, 2x Slotted Ring with Mantis or 2x Expert Ring with Mantis also could help.

6. Or if you wanna some trick, use Thorn Shield+Horn of Buffalo so your attacker could be frozen if they're attacking you while you're on a Mace with 4 Marinas.

Good luck :)

PS. I didn't play Ashura Champ on PvP nowadays, so please tell me if I made mistake within this post :P

lol, I usually call it Martyr's Reckoning because there's no mistaking what skill that is, while Sacrifice is sometimes confused with devotion. Lame of gravity to do that, though. =[

As for combo champs..that was a joke. xP It was just an example of something that does a lot of hits and usually not much damage. :P Fun to play, but not really a viable build for pvp. As for DD sinx, that's what I used to play in pvp, so I wouldn't really count it low damage, since it has the potential of doing 32k hits at max aspd. ;)

Seeker shield..might work, but level 1 stone curse has a 24% base success chance, which gets decreased with int and luk. Even if you assume negligiable reduction from int and luk, that's still 4 casts, more than enough time for a good opponent to switch to ED while you keep wasting your time.

As for thorny shield+hob, and your opponent being frozen while you're wearing a marina mace, I'm assuming that's from reflect damage. If so, swordy, thief, and merchant classes could get better from valk mant, since it gives the same base 5% reflect as well 2% more per refine. That would also free you from taking up an accessory slot from the combo. Good tip though~

And yeah, I don't play champ often either, lol. I learned mostly from watching friends, there used to be a great champ here prewipe named Tanake, and I've known quite a few on low rates. :)
