Builds

Solo PVM - Double Strafe

This build is designed for solo leveling. Medium-to-high VIT and INT afford the Bard survivability in case he takes a hit, while allowing for extended use of Double Strafe. AGI is not used for flee in this build; rather it is a boost for attack speed, allowing for faster Double Strafe casts. It is highly recommended, if not mandatory, to get job level 50 as an Archer for Arrow Shower 9.

Stats

Stat Range
STR 1 - 30
AGI 50 - 60
VIT 30 - 50
INT 50 - 60
DEX 80 - 90+
LUK 1

First get DEX to 50. Bring AGI up to 40, followed by INT to 20. Take DEX up to 80 and increase INT to 40. VIT will not help you as an Archer, so leave it alone until around level 70.

Skills

Almost entirely optional if soloing.

  • Adaptation to Circumstances 1
  • Encore 1
  • Dissonance 3
  • Musical Lesson 10
  • A Poem of Bragi 10
  • Rest are optional; consider ensemble skills for fun in town

Party PVM/Support

This build is designed for players looking to party their way through life. While slower to level solo, their main goal is to be useful to others. Getting job 50 is optional, but a Harp [2] is available to players who do.

Stats

Stat Range
STR 1 - 30
AGI 1 - 30
VIT 50 - 60+
INT 70 - 80+
DEX 90
LUK 1

DEX and INT are the main stats in this build, both being the modifiers for A Poem of Bragi, with INT further adding to your SP pool. Take DEX to 70, followed by INT to 40. VIT should only be increased after the job change. From here, get 20-30 VIT then start pumping DEX and INT. STR and AGI to taste.

Can be a little more complicated, but below are a few examples.

  • Adaptation to Circumstances 1
  • Encore 1
  • Dissonance 3

This build is designed for PvP scenarios, yet can survive just as well in dangerous PvM parties. Or if you're feeling strong and start pulling.

Stats

Stat Range
STR 40
AGI 1
VIT 80+
INT 50
DEX 80+
