Gameplay tips and progression

Background: This build is the result of 5 soul sucking sessions on my 7th toon.
1) Pure Caster
2) Spell Sword
3) Pure BBS
4) SL 155 Pure LW MC
5) SL 135 LW MC, BBS, DBS

There are plenty of Cursed MC and DBS builds out there so look else where if you are looking for UBER PHYSICAL DAMAGE from your MC DBS. I would recommend the cursed cracked TOB standard route if that is what you are looking for.

On the 3rd iteration it was always targeted as a BBS build, thus the Royalty starting class. However I found that putting that much stat into luck really limited my weapon choices. Then it was rebuilt as a Light Weapon MC build. I found that after putting 26 into STR for MC, I can put 4 more points and start using the DBS too. Since I already had a BBS this character I decide to test out the BBS on this build also. SUCCESS! With these stats you do not need to luck stat to use the BBS. With magic at 25 the BBS will kill though SC in one combo, that is all that really matters.

The end result is a build that can kill with 3 of the top 5 weapons in this game IMO. The other two being uchi and GA. It wont hit quite as hard as a MC Cursed or DBS Cursed but plenty hard to kill especially in hyper mode. This build is also great against people that use warding after their SC breaks.

With STR at 30 you can also utilize crushing weapons if you wish. However with these stats your MC will have a slightly higher base dmg than a crushing GA…so might as well use MC.

My recommendation is keep LW on all the time. That should not be too difficult because both the MC and DBS has several knockdown attacks that allows time to rebuff. The biggest drawback is that you do not have a secondary weapon. Must use iCAT for light weapon, which means TOB as your secondary to cast second chance. You can use TOB to buff but the damage difference is about 45 to 50 magic damage. Significant.

Damage Output with iCAT and Light Weapon 2 handed:

DBS: 723
MC: 638
BBS: 506
