Str – For general purpose or DPS. Veteran, Expert, Master.
Con – For tanking. Veteran, Expert, Master.
Int – Veteran, Expert, and Master
Con – For survivability
Dex – Veteran, Expert, and Master
Con – for survivability (note that it won’t change a lot).
Int – Increases Healing and Resistances. Vet, Expert, Master.
Con – For PvE and PvP. Vet, Expert, Master. Great in conjunction with Arnis.
Agi – At Vet and/or Expert. The Scout gets Evasion benefits in Arnis and can be deadly with Paralysis when tanking but seriously, try Con instead. (note: speed is capped easily on Arnis)
No need for points in Str. Even if you’re planning on using Arnis. The Scout will be lousy DPS anyway and will do fine without the extra points, spamming Paralysis skills instead.
Int – Veteran, Expert and Master
Con – More survivability, useful both in PvE and PvP situations. As Wizards are mainly debuffers. Vet, Expert, Master.
Str – Veteran, Expert and Master.
Agi – Vet or Expert. Rapiere is fast and has Block. Technically Agi is a bit feasible but Str is still better.
Remember, Andre is pretty fantastique with Rapiere. He has 10 Str, Punto (which the Barons lack) and 7 Con.
Adelina & Adelina the Pirate –
Str – Veteran, Expert and Master. She speed caps easily.
Adelina is NOT a pistol user due to her low Dex and lack of Vet pistol stances. Further, at Vet and above you’ll be eschewing Heaven and Hell for Low Guard anyway.
Placing points in Agi is a waste. Her duality is of no use and the extra speed which she gets is useless since you can achieve near max speed with a decent weapon and a decent pair of gloves. With buffs, you’ll likely speed cap. This means that you’ll really receive no benefit aside from a slight increase in damage. Remember that Adelina is no tank and gets no benefit from Agi for Block or Evade (except for the pistols stances which are again, useless). As such, you’ll get more benefit by placing points in Str and Dex, where she’ll receive bonuses in Critical, Accuracy and damage. And again, for as she’s no pistol user, the best option is Str.
Dex – Veteran, Expert and Master. Dex increases her Construction effectiveness and even if you use her in CW or PvP, her starting Con will easily 1HKO her.
Con – Veteran, Expert and Master. An increased Con score will aid you take attacks and allow you to survive long enough to put pressure on your opposing Clan’s Colonies.
Ania Str – Veteran, Expert and Master. Pretty much the speed cap argument again. Just think of her as Lisa on steriods and hence, we can probably ignore Gorgeous’ Block.
Str – Veteran, Expert, and Master to increase damage.
Agi – Alternatively, if you’re going to Expert him, it might be a good idea to put a point in Agi and then use a Memoir later. He’ll be too slow to clear out an area in the AA by himself.
Con – At Vet for PvP or at Expert and Master once you’ve placed points in Str.
Asoka Str at Veteran, Expert, and Master. Her stances are all melee stances and will benefit from points in Str.
Dex – Veteran, Expert and Master.
Agi – Veteran or Expert. If you want a unique Flintlock user, consider a point in Agi. Flintlock has few spammable skills and also relies on normal attacks for good damage, at 5 starting Agi, you’ll need a boost.
Str – Veteran, Expert and Master. He starts fast and in PvP, hit the guy first and hit him hard and you’ll win.
Agi – Probably not a good idea despite Martial Arts Compendium. In PvP, whoever hits first and hard tends to win anyway.
Brunie – Dex – Veteran, Expert and Master. Brunie speed caps easily and needs all the Accuracy she can get. Slapping points in Agi leads to a waste in Attack Speed and greatly reduces your Damage and Accuracy.
Catherine the Summoner – Cha – Veteran, Expert and Master. Increases doll damage.
Catherine of X
Just put all points into your Catherine’s stat of choice, although all Strength, Dexterity or Intelligence Caths might benefit from 10 point of Agi, specially an Intelligence Cath.
Veteran, Expert and Master. Catherine’s agility is high enough already and adding more to it is a bit of a waste.
Con at either Vet, Expert OR Master. Catherine is very good in PVP and with higher lvl armours becoming available and her evasion rate on her Expert stance, Con is a viable alternative.
Con – Veteran, Expert and Master. You only want a Trooper for tanking.
Agi – At Vet and/or Expert. If you want to speed up getting to Expert though, a point in Agi might be worth it. You don’t have to Memoir the point either as Agi increases his Block too.
Claude – Str – Veteran, Expert, and Master.
Str -Both at Vet, Expert and Master. If you’re planning on using Great Swords.
Dex – Both at Vet, Expert and Master. If you’re planning on using Cannons, which by the way, will get an Expert stance in a future patch. Dex provides a benefit for both of her Expert stances.
7 Agi is already enough to keep her duality but adding points will increase damage in Cannons and Great Swords.
Dex -Both at Vet, Expert and Master. Where does Caly own? PvP. What do you use in PvP? A crossbow.
Agi – Only at Vet – Alternatively, you can choose to put a point in Agi to speed her to Expert as it helps both her Daggers and Crossbow stances. She’ll still get max Accuracy due to her buffs.
Emilia and Emilia the Sage – Int – Increases Healing and Resistances. Both at Vet, Expert and Master. Thinking of Con? Don’t bother. She’ll get 1HKO-ed in PvP anyway.
Eduardo and Kurt
Str – Both at Vet, Expert and Master. The Barons excel in dealing damage. Go all out with Str for Rapiere. Agi, like Andre, though feasible, isn’t really recommended as they’re already fast enough for their Expert Stance (which unfortunately has Grim Soul).
Con – At Vet or Expert to increase PvP survivability though going with Str is still a better option.
Str – At Vet and/or Expert. If you plan on using him as a hybrid.
Agi – At Vet and/or Expert. If you plan on using him as a hybrid.
Dex – Both at Vet, Expert and Master. If you plan on focusing on Pistols. He would be the only Sight Shot / Outrage user that can wear leather armor..
Probably best to add a point in Agi at Vet, and then Str at Expert. Garcia is best as a hybrid and adding the points in Str and Agi will aid him more than putting points in Dex.
Note that Avant Guard benefits from Str, Agi and Dex. However, you’ll still have to choose whether to go Str or Dex.
A Dex Garcia is a moderately armored pistol user, he’ll be able to use Leather Armor but will have low Damage, Attack Speed and Accuracy. Prior to the 3.0 patch, he can still somewhat catch up to Brunie by spamming skills and potions. Unfortunately, upon arrival of the patch, Brunie’s inherent Agi simply blows Garcia away. Still, points in Dex will ALSO add to his Accuracy and Criticals in Rapiere.
A Str Garcia gets to take advantage of his Strength in more stances. In addition to this, with 7 Dex, he’ll actually have good Crits and Accuracy in Rapiere.
Str – Veteran, Expert and Master. She already has great Con. Strength will aid her keep aggro along with Provoke. Don’t bother putting points in Agi. She has no decent Blocking stances and a Great Sword will be dead slow no matter what you do.
To repeat, Grenmah may have a great starting Con but she’s same as someone with Stave Guard or Defender. Her lack of Block means she’ll only be tanking with DR and Def. This means you’ll be cycling between Hanging Guard’s skills, an SP potion, and HP potion.
Str – At Vet and/or Expert/Master. If you insist on using Gertrude, go full Str to take advantage of the MMA stance.
Agi – At Vet – A single point in Agi will give him a slight boost in Block, ATK Speed and Damage. If you choose to add a point in Agi, be sure to add to Str upon reaching Expert. At Expert, Martial Arts Compendium provides Evade too.
Note however, that placing points in Agi cripples Gert’s DPS more when compared to other martial artists. Martial artists allocate points between 3 primary stats, Str, Agi and Con. Since Gert has a Con of 7, his damage is potentially the lowest of all the MAs, though he can remain standing after taking a good amount of damage.
Dex – Veteran. Expert, and Master
Don’t bother with Con, she’s still a coat user afterall, will be a easy 1hit even with 10 Dex 6 Con.
Str – Veteran, Expert and Master.
Agi? No! Although possessing the same speed as Baek Ho, Gracielo has the advantage of getting bonus Attack Speed through his self buff, Raging Wind. In addition to this, Martial Arts Compendium’s Enhanced Lion Heart increases Attack Speed, among others, too.
Int – At Veteran, Expert, and Master. You might as well make her do what she does best.
Con – For survivability
Idge and Battlesmith Idge
Str – Veteran, Expert and Master. Great Sword stances will be slow no matter what you do and even you can near max Mighty Cruz’s speed without putting points in Agi. As for Hanging Guard, you’ll want Str for that.
Accuracy problems? Grab Aiming Gloves.
Str – At both Vet and Expert. You’ve got 50 Con and Leather Armor. Strike first, strike hard.
Agi – At Vet. MA: Fire benefits from Agi due to Block and putting a point in Agi puts him with the same stats as Baek and makes Irawain level faster. As for Martial Arts Compendium, Irawain might actually benefit but remember that Irawain has a starting Str of 8. An Expert Irawain can likely be really deadly with a Str of 10!
At Master, go with either 1 more Con or Agi, either can be nice.
Jack – Dex – Veteran, Expert and Master. Aids his construction skill and you won’t be using him anywhere else aside from power leveling.
Jose – Dex – Veteran, Expert and Master. Poor Jose’s lousy with Melee no matter what you do. It’ll be painful getting him to Expert and no matter what, and you might as well save yourself a Memoir and go full Dex to improve his Cannons which will later get an Expert stance.
Lisa – Str – Veteran, Expert and Master. Don’t waste points in Agi. Lisa is inherently fast and can hit the Attack Speed cap easily. At Vet, you’ll likely be using Raid Assault which will benefit from Block but without a shield, don’t expect to tank. With Arnis, she gets Evade and gets to take strike really fast between skills. Still though, wastage is wastage. Go Str.
Dex – Veteran, Expert, and Master.
Agi – At Vet – If you’re only going to use him to power level or farm, you might as well make him shoot fast. If you wanted DPS you’d be using Grace anyway.
Int – Both at Vet, Expert and Master. If you plan on using her for raids, more specifically Fire Gate as an inferior Elementalist.
Str – Both at Vet, Expert and Master. If you want to keep her as a hybrid or for Rapiere with a few extra tricks up her sleeve.
Don’t bother with Agi. It won’t help her duality and Mia certainly isn’t a tank.
Int – Veteran, Expert and Master.
Con – At Vet and/or Expert. A single point in Con will aid M’boma for PvP.
Dex – Veteran, Expert and Master, if you’re planning on using Flintlock.
Agi – At Veteran in order to keep his duality, although you might want to note that you’ll have trouble getting good Accuracy at 8 Dex. He’ll still do decently in Low Guard though.
Str – At Veteran and/or Expert – If you’re planning on using Low Guard. You can also put a point in Agi should you choose to add in Strength. He’s already better than a Fighter with Sabers to begin with.
Str – Vet, Expert, and Master for DPS.
Agi – At Vet if you’re leveling him to Expert to turn traps off in Occulta. Speeds up the leveling process. Seriously though, what a waste. His Expert stance is purely offensive too.
Con – At Master.
Panfilo and Panfilo the Iron Chef
Str – Both at Vet, Expert and Master. He doesn’t really have any tanking stance as he can’t equip a Shield. You might as well max him out for Low Guard or Flame Guard for PvP annoyance (Fireball won’t kill anyone but it’ll knock em down).
Agi – At Vet, as a slight boost in Speed will help him level and should you use Hack and Slash, adds some Block. Seriously though, you wont’ be using Hack and Slash at Vet or above. Better to go all out Strength.
Don’t go with Int. It won’t really help him as his Int starts out too low as compared to Mia.
Str – If you plan on using Raven as a Tank/DPS by prioritising him in Rapiere, Str is the way to go.
Dex – Croisements attacks use the pistol as the default weapon, so increasing Dex will increase the damage of normal attacks.
Agi – At Vet only! -If you want to keep Ravens duality increasing the agility by 10 Maximum will help him increase his speed in the stances. Any more than 10 points on Agi is a waste though.
Int – Veteran, Expert, and Master.
Cha – At Expert and Master – Will increase the effectiveness of her skills. (?)
Dex – Both at Vet, Expert and Master. If you’re planning on using Flintlock. Best to just use Aiming Gloves though.
Con – Both at Vet, Expert and Master, if you plan on using the Rescue Knight as a budget Romina, mainly there for being an armored rezzer.
Agi – At Vet or Expert. If you want to keep her duality. Aids her Block, ATK Speed and adds some slight DPS to all her stances. Note that the Rescue Knight DOESN’T have Equites.
Str – For general purpose or DPS. Veteran, Expert and Master.
Con – For tanking. Veteran, Expert and Master.
Dex – Veteran, Expert and Master. If you’re planning on using Flintlock. Improves Accuracy for Equites as well but if you’re planning on using Equites primarily, you’ll still get more benefit from Str. If you want Accuracy, try using Aiming Gloves.
Str – Veteran, Expert and Master. If you’re planning on using Equites. Keep all points in Str. She’s the best Equites user out there.
Agi – At Vet and/or Expert. Improves Block, ATK Speed and adds some slight DPS, keeps her duality. Also, maxing Block with Romina can make her a terror in PvP. Armored rez with high Def and Block and still able to slay characters using Equites makes her a match breaker.
Str – Veteran, Expert and Master.
Agi? Nope. Sure the kids are fast but can you use their speed in Hanging Guard? Nope.
Selva – Str – Veteran, Expert and Master. Her Rapida Espada stance has Block, and with the AR potential her Arm Guard brings, you might as well go all out offense. If you do plan on using Rapida Espada, Agi is actually a feasible choice.
Soho and Soho the Fighter
Str – Both at Vet, Expert and Master. Don’t bother with Int. His Healing sucks anyway and his buffs won’t really be affected.
Dex? Again Soho is no healer. However, Soho the Fighter has a high Critical rate as compared to other Martial Artists due to his stat allocation of Str 6, Agi 7, Con 5 and Dex 6, whereas all the other MAs allocates points only between Str, Agi and Con, ignoring Dex.
Agi? Though he gets Evade in Martial Arts Compendium Soho will likely still be better off with Str as he can buff through Bard anyway.
Soso – Str – Veteran, Expert and Master. Don’t put points in Agi. She’ll Speed Cap easily.
Str – Veteran, Expert and Master.
Agi? Nope. Same argument as Ramiro.
INT – Both at Vet and Expert. Higher HP amounts in healing skills and stronger damage from Exclusion
CON – At Master.
Viki – Cha – Both at Vet, Expert and Master. Viki is no Healer and you’ll mainly be using him to power level so go full Cha which improves his summons, you could otherwise get Con, it would help making Viki less lame.
Vincent – Int – Both at Vet and Expert. Don’t bother with Con before Master even for CW. You’ll get trampled over and your mandolin will be smashed over your head no matter what.
Dex – Improves his Construction skills.
Con – If you plan on using Yeganeh in CW, putting all your points in Con might keep you alive long enough for your structures to be annoying. Note that its all points in Con or none at all. Actually this is highly controversial and debatable but heck, it’d be interesting, at least until an Ele AoE blasts your structures anyway.
