When you do not have any weapons equipped, the kicking skill damage will increase by +10 per level of this skill, for maximum of +100.

Break Fall
Max Level: 1
Requirements: Flying Side Kick Level 7
SP Cost: 1
Cast Time: Instant
Duration: Until turned off
Effect: This is a skill you can turn ON and OFF by pressing the skill button. When you leave this ON, there's 20% chance of dodging an enemy ranged Physical or Magic attacks. It is not removed after death.
Note: This skill is a MUST HAVE for WoE and PvP. You have chance to avoid such skills like Acid Demonstration which is most dangerous for us because of high vit. Have some uses in PvM.


Flying Side Kick

Required For: Break Fall (L7).
SP Cost: 80 - SkillLV*10
Range: 9 cells
Cast Time: Instant
Required State: Requires to be able to move
Effect: Attack an enemy who is away from you by jumping at him/her/it, landing in the same cell than your target. Normally, you would have to target this skill manually to attack, but if you use it while doing Break Fall, you will automatically attack the dodged target. The damage of this skill is 30%+10*SkillLV%, but if used right after Break Fall, it becomes stronger as your BaseLV goes up. Also, this skill has a unique property, when you hit the target player, any TaeKwon/Star Gladiator/Soul Linker-based buffs - such as all Spirit buffs, new skills bestowed by Spirit buffs, or Berserk Potion acquired through Berserk Pitcher - they may have, are all dispelled. However, if the target player has Preserve skill used on them, then they are invulnerable to this dispel effect. This skill can be Plagiarized by a Rogue. When this skill is used while using Running skill, the power of this ability will increase based on the character BaseLV. The power of this skill goes up even further if you do it while under "spurt" mode in Running skill.
Note:As a Soul Linker we can’t use it. But it is needed for Break Fall. Sometimes usefull in PvM while leveling TK

At level 1, it uses it up at 10% chance, and at level 10, it uses at 1% chance. The Happy Status remains after death.
Note: We will take this because it is required for Warm Wind-only PvM and Soul Linker skill Kaina.

Effect: It increases your ATK 2%*SkillLV per party member on the same map. For example, if there are 10 party members, and you have LV 5 in this skill, your ATK is increased by 100%.

================



2a.Taekwon Leveling


Skills:
Skills which you should take(in this order)
Whirlwind Kick lvl 1 (the best kick skill for leveling, but if you don’t like mobbing take Axe Kick instead)
Prepare Whirlwind Kick lvl 1
Whirlwind Kick up to lvl 7
Peaceful Rest lvl 5 (req. for Warm Wild)
Enjoyable Rest lvl 5 (req. for Warm Wild)
Fighting Chant lvl 5 (req. for Warm Wild)
Warm Wild lvl 7
Rest doesn’t matter, you will do reset after changing to SL and hitting few job levels. But nice idea can be running for str bonus, flying side kick for faster getting to monster, thumble for dodging ranged attack.


Stats:
It depends on personal point of view. But generally take enough dex to hit monster(www.ratemyserver.net). Then it’s your choice. More str=more dmg, more agi=more flee, more vit=more hp. Personally I like high str and a little bit of agi.
The most common build is str/agi for high dmg and high aspd.


Leveling spots:
First levels: Starting area.
And later there are a lot of leveling spots, I will list few of them.

13-30 - Payon Dung01

18-25>rockers ( warm wild 4- but you won’t have it probably on this level. They are down left or left down from Prontera, 80 on map)

25-30>poporings(Down right from Yuno 50 on map- watch out for sidewinder and deviling, Hidden dungeon)

27- right from Ayoatha Town. Monsters to kill: Smokie, coco, yoyo (warm wild lvl 4 against them)

30-35>coco( 2x up from Geffen, warm wild 4 against them) or horns( same map as coco’s and Hidden Dungeon, also warm wild 4 against them)

30-35 - Orc Dungeon, Ant Hell, Baylan Dung 2

35-40 - Toy Factory 1

35-42>caramel (same map as coco’s and horn’s, hidden dungeon)

43-55 – Metalings, or for TK with warm wild 4 Porcellio’s are better(one map down from Einbroch)
40job-50job - Ayoatha Dung(leaf cats), also warm wild 4. Great job exp, fastest monsters to hit from 40 to 50 job lvl. But you will burn a lot of potions.


My preferable version(I’m using it all the time while leveling Thorr SG’s):
After leaving starting area, head to Payon.(Take some potions with you). Go one map down, there kill Spore’s (warm wild 4, but you won’t have it probably=P). While killing Spore’s make your way to south. One map down from your place(2 from Payon) are Wolves. If you will attack one, all wolves on screen will attack you. Whirlwind kick would be nice. Hit 40 job here.From 40 job(like I mention before, in other version) go to Ayoatha dung and kill Leaf Cat’s.



TK don’t have a lot of skills which can be helpful for SL so you don’t need 50 job(probably you will have all needed skills before 40 job) but it is a mid rate server and it shouldn’t be a problem to hit 50 job. Just few more potions to use =P

2b.Soul Linker Leveling

First of all, hit some jobs with your old tk build without reset. For Esma lvl 10 you will need 27 job level. Your best friend will be Warm Wild, thanks to that skill you will be able to level almost everywhere. Other nice skills are: Kaahi-autoheal, Kaizel-autoress. You should also buy a non-slotted survivor dex or int rod(about 90k) the npc in Lighthalzen city.
Suggested skills:
Sage spirit 1 (req. for Esma)
Wizard spirit 1 (req.for Esma)
Estin 7(req. for Esma)
Estun 7(req.for Esma)
Esma 10(your offensive skill)
Monk spirit 1 (req. for Kaahi)
Priest spirit 1 (req. for Kaahi)
Kaahi 5 (this level would be enough)
Kaizel 7
Kaina 7(it reduce sp consumption of Esma)
Kaahi 6(one spare point)
Of course you can take Eswoo for slowing mobs but I never needed that so I just don’t use it.
Stats:
For leveling just high int/dex. Int for damage and dex for cast time.
Spots:
From first levels(with Esma) use warp to Ice dungeon and just go through portal near you. You are in ra_field01. Use warm wild 4 here and level till ~70 base level.

Now you have a lot of spots open because of Warm Wild.

70-90 Comodo beach: Warm wild lvl 2. Seals to beat, quite good exp but mobs are aggressive so watch out.
80-99 Glast Heim, stings. Hard to get there but exp Is very good. You can earn some money here also, stings drop Glove[1]. Just keep distance with them, you shouldn’t have any problem. Warm wild 4 here. Kaahi is recommended, you use gargoyle as a heal npc- when you see them just wait a sec with Kaahi on and you will have full hp fast. After Recovering hp kill him with warm wild 1. How to get on stings:


60-80 Mi gaos. Warm wild 4, one map down from Louyang. Watch out for Mantis, they can be annoying.

90-99 Ice Titans in Ice Dungeon 3. Very strong mobs(can one-hit-kill) but also very slow. Preferable with priest and Lex but soloable(personally I made there 99) Warm wild 2. Heal yourself with Gazeti and Kaahi.



80-99 Kiel dung 1. Preferable with priest and lex. You can drop some nice items here also.

===================


4.War of Emperium

Gears:
Here I will list WoE equip sets in 2 categories, low and high. More info about items(stats, description) is in “3.Gears” section.


Low equip:
It is just worst, most shitty equipment. But if you want participle in WoE you must have at last this equipment(you will die a lot etc for very poor starter people):

Upper Headgear:+4 Beret or his better version Feather Beret
Middle & Low Headgear: Opera Masque, 2def.
Shield: +4 Guard[1] with Thara frog card.
Weapon: Rod[4] With 4 drops card or 4 fabre card.
Armor: +4 Silk Robe[1] with Marc card.
Garment: +4 Muffler[1] with Raydric card or +4 Vali manteau.
Shoes: +4Shoes with Verit card or Vidar’s Boots
Accessories: None slotted Rosaries or Rosaries[1] with Alligator card( it is not expensive)

High equip:
Upper Headgear: +8/9/10 Valkyire Helm [1]. You have few options with card here, it is just personal choice. Cards to chose: Leaf Cat, Leib Olmai, Magaleta Card or you could go with higher plus Friggs set for Mdef or Feather Beret for survivability.
Middle Headgear: Elven Ears or sunglasses[1] with the cards above. Nothing to say, just the best for SL.
Lower Headgear: Crunch Toast or Gangster Mask. Also few options.
Shield: +8/9/10 Valkyrie’s Shield[1] with Thara Frog card. Just a must have for WoE. Especially needed paired with Friggs set
Weapon: +8/9/10 Survivor Rod DEX[1] (upgrade this in the end, it gives additional MATK – we don’t need it during WoE) With drops or fabre card.
Swordbreaker/Mailbreaker/Status knife to use with Magnum Break
Combat Knife for more surviving
Armor: +8/9/10 Silk Robe[1]/Glittering Jacket[1]/ Odins Blessing [1](less MDEF, more DEF, much more weight) With Marc card, optionally Evil Druid Card, Angeling and GR card for switching.
Garment: +8/9/10 Survivor’s Manteau. Much better than Raydric Muffler/Heavenly Maiden Robe. Additonal 10 VIT and more reduction.
Shoes: +8/9/10 High Quality Sandals[1]. 10MDEF, there aren’t better shoes for SL atm. Put Green Ferus Card in it, when +9/10 Firelock Soldier Card.
Accessory: Rosaries[1] with Alligator Card. More reduction. For switching Smokie and Horong cards are very good idea. Blast rosary( with marine sphere, allow to cast magnum break) and Poison rosary(with poison spore card, allow to cast evenom) can add "offensive" options to your character.

Usable items:

HP recovery:
White Potion- 15 weight, healing 325-405 hp(modified by VIT)
Slim White Potion- 5 weight, healing 325-405hp(modified by VIT and can be higher when made by ranked Creator)
Mastela Fruit- 3 weight, healing 400-600(modified by VIT)

SP Recovery:
Blue Potion – 15 weight, recover sp of amount 40-60(modified by INT)
Honey – 10 weight, recover sp of amount 20-40

Other:

Green Potion – 7 weight, cures Poison, Silence, Blind and Confusion effects. Always have few with you.
Panacea – 10 weight, cures Poison, Silence, Blind, Confusion, Curse, Hallucination effects. Always have few with you(better version of Green Potion).
Box of Gloom - 20 weight, cast Level 1 Attention Concentrate. You can obtain Box of Gloom by killing plant monsters with Cloud Hermit Card


Build:
You must set this for your gameplay style.


Stats:

Str: +0 from job level 50 bonus. From items optionally +2 when wearing Firelock Soldier Card. Put all spare points here, for more weight.
Agi:+0 from job level 50 bonus. From items optionally +1 when wearing Matyr Card. Not needed, don’t waste even 1 point here.
Vit: +6 from job level 50 bonus. Very important stats for use. 97 gives stun immunity so it is nice value. Easy to higher this stat by items (Angelic tiara 5 vit, Red Bull 3 vit, Surv Mant 10 vit, fabre in weapon 1 vit, green ferus 1 vit so it can reach 20 additonal vit with job bonus 26. With such big bonus just set your vit for 73 optionally 76 for more HP bonus) . Higher vit higher HP but also higher damage from AD.
Int: +12 from job level 50 bonus. No bonuses from items. About 60~70 would be nice for sp bonus, but VIT and DEX is much more important.
Dex: +12 from job level 50 bonus. From items +3 from Surv Rod and optionally +1 when wearing Drops card. In total it would be about +15. Set about 90 or even higher. Amount of DEX should be divided by 3, it will give cast time reduction bonus.
Luk: +0 from job level 50 bonus. From items +2 from Rosaries. Not needed, don’t waste even 1 point here.
My suggested build(while wearing Firelock Soldier Card and Fabre Card in weapon): STR 20+2 AGI 1 VIT 72+25, DEX 91+15,LUK 1. With this you will have about 10k hp and 1.6k sp. You can lower DEX(which is a little bit high) and add additional points for VIT to have more HP which is good option too or even better than suggested one.
Just test your stats and set your individual stat amounts.


Skills:
Descriptions are in section “1.Skills”
Taekwon Skills:
Flying Side Kick 7(needed for Break Fall)
Break Fall 1(Must have)
Running 10(Another must have)
High Jump 5(One more must have)
23 skill points used 26 left. You won’t need any other skills for WoE.


Soul linker Skills:
Kaupe 3(Big M U S T HAVE)
Kaite 7 (Like Kaupe)
15 points spent, 35 left(+lvl 1 rouge, wizard spirit and assassin, sage spirit which were req. for Kaupe and Kaite)Beside of that 2 skills you will need only links, now the biggest problem is which links to chose… Overall you should have:
Assassin spirit level 5
Rouge spirit level 5
Blacksmith spirit level 5
Bard and Dancer spirit level 5
Wizard Spirit level 5
Soullinker Spirit level 5
Now you have 6 points left. If you have good emp breaker LK take Knight Spirit level 5, if you have shield Paladin take Crusader spirit level 5. If no one of them two just put 6 points in Kaina for additional 180 SP.


Tips:
-Make second SL and dual clienting with him, always when you die RELINK yourself. Without link you are only half of SL.
-Always before entering precast Kaite all your members, it can be deadly for HW.
-When in emp room and your emp breaker are attacking emp use alt+z(it’s hard to aim someone in this crowd, try to be in party with emp breakers) and KAUPE HIM. With Kaupe he is immortal.
-Do not rush to emp, go in a group as a whole party and kaupe guildmates and allies to hold them alive
-Try to link your guildies as often as possible


===================

5.Builds

Here I will write something about Soul Linker builds. WoE build is mention in section “4.WoE” so I will concentrate only on 2 builds, Esma Linker, FS Linker(PvM).

Esma Linker
In this build you will want to max your int and damage. Esma has low cast time so dex is second priority. You can change elements with Warm Wild. Esma has high damage and with bragi you can be deadly.
Esma Linker can be very good light damage dealer and it can be very good at hunting some items.

Skills:
As a taekwon you will need Warm Wild 7. High Jump, Running and Break Fall can be helpful.
Soullinker:
You will need Esma level 10 and Kaina level 7(less sp consumption of Esma, it is a must have for this build). Kaahi and Kaizel can help a lot. Eswoo can help with slowing monster but in my opinion kaahi/kaizel are better choise.

Gears:
Gears for maxing efficiency of Esma.

Upper Headgear: Tiara with Elder willow(+2int) or Isilla Card/ Lord Kahos Horn if your server has one
Middle Headgear: Sunglasses with Elder willow or Isilla Card
Lower Headgear: Romantic Flower or Crunch toast
Armor: Silk Robe with Rocker card(+1dex)
Weapon: Wizardry Staff(INT + 6, DEX + 2, MATK + 15%)
Shield: None, 2h weapon.
Garment: Morpheus's Shawl(+10% SP, 3MDEF)
Shoes: Shoes[1] with Sohee Card(+15% SP)
Accessory: Spiritual Ring(2DEX 2INT, with wizardry staff combo additional MATK + 6%, DEX + 2, additional MATK by wizardy staff refinement) and Glove[1](+1dex) with Zerom card(+2dex)

Stats:
Str: Nevermind you won’t use it.
Agi: Same like str
Vit: Put rest of points here
Int: 99+31 (130int +matk from wizardy staff=great dmg)
Dex:91+19(very good cast)
Luk: Same like agi,str

Full Support Linker(PvM)
Support build for MvP parties etc. You should have autofollow SL with Soullinker spirit on second account.

Skills:
Taekwon skills: same like Esma Linker
Soul Linker skills: Links, and once again links. You must set your links depending on situation. If you don’t have assassin, assassin spirit is waste. Eske is great if you have reflect paladin(higher MvP damage). Of course Kaupe, Kaizel, Kaahi and sometimes Kaite is good option. Kaina is waste of points.

Gears:
Dex and surviving is your priority.

Upper Headgear: Feather Beret or Valkyrie Helm[1] with Elder willow(+2int), Aoa is good too if you need the dex
Middle Headgear: Sunglasses with Isilla Card
Lower Headgear: Romantic Flower or Crunch Toast
Armor: Silk Robe/Glittering Jacket with Element Card(Marc,ED,Bathory, Angeling etc) or Rocker Card(+1dex)
Weapon: Survivor’s Rod DEX[1](DEX+3 Hp+400) with Drops card(+1dex)
Shield: Valkyria’s Shield[1] with anti race card.
Garment: Morpheus Shawl or Heavenly Maiden Robe[1] with anti element card(Pasana etc) or Survivor Manteau
Shoes: High Quality Shoes[1] with Green Ferus Card or when +9/10 Firelock Soldier Card.
Accessories: 2x Nimble Glove (+8dex for both)
