|Gameplay tips and progression||
Because you have one extra stat point left once you reach SL124, you can decide where you want to put it; in this case, I chose the extra point towards luck. If you don't feel like using Silver coronet for casting Second Chance, take that extra point, and put it towards Intelligence.
Another great thing about this build is that you do not need to worry about losing a ton of magic defense since unlike a caster build, you do not depend on catalyst, tornado head and ring of magical sharpness for boosting magic damge, but in return, decreasing magic defense by a ton.
While there are many pros to this build, I will also be unbiased in mentioning a con: Low vitality compared to 99.9% of PVPers. .
