Things to take note of from this guide: Builds vary from one player to another - that is my suggested build may or may not work for other players since they could have developed their own build that is more effective for them. Players should also consider that MVP rooms have mobs with different race, element, and size. Hence, each room could have its own specific gear that would work on it and not for the rest of the rooms. This guide merely recommends. Do experiment and discover things. Mix and match equipment, who knows there may be better equipment or build out there that this guide has not covered. Listed below are different ways to build a star gladiator: Build 1 This build is for Sprint+FSK or Whirlwind/Tornado Kick (or even the lazy kill like mine Point+Hit until dead) Stats Str: 255 Agi: enough to give 196 aspd to the character Vit: approximately 50 to 80 Int: 1 Dex: approximately 150 to 175 Luk: rest of the stat points Skills Here are the skills I personally use for this (take note players may opt for other skills they prefer) Leap Level 5 - Jump around the MVP rooms especially the big ones to close the gap and for faster search of the MVP, but leave around a small space for the use of Sprint (this is for Sprint+FSK combo). I also use this skill to evade certain attacks from an MVP. Sprint Level 10 - This skill is used together with FSK (Flying Side Kick) as it amplifies FSK together with breakfall/tumbling skill. Tumbling Level 1 - Just like Sprint, this amplifies FSK Flying Side Kick Level 7 - This is the player’s main damaging attack for MVP for this build. Tornado Stance Level 1 - This prepares the SG for for Tornado Kick Tornado Kick Level 7 - This can be used when Tornado Stance procs. I personally like this skill because it has a 5x5 cells area of coverage which is perfect for also hitting the mobs spawned by the MVP. Roundhouse Stance Level 1 - With this skill, an SG is prepared for Roundhouse Kick. Roundhouse Stance Level 7 - This skill is almost like Tornado Kick, however the difference lies in the area of coverage which is 3x3. Furthermore, despite the area coverage being 3x3 it compensates with more damage compared to Tornado Kick. Mild Wind Level 1 to 7 - Know the element of the monster being targeted first before using the appropriate level of Mild Wind for more damage inflicted against the monster. Take note that each level of this skill corresponds to a certain element. Solar, Lunar, and Stellar Opposition (Hatred) Level 1 to 3 - Each level of this skill corresponds to the size of the monster. Identify first the size of the monster before casting this skill on the target. Designating hatred on a specific monster enables more damage inflicted against it. Gears In this section I will go on with the gears as a set combined. Don’t feel restricted about it and feel free to experiment with them. Starter Gears from the NPC in @go 15 Novice Grounds Basic (for those who have very limited zeny budget) Upper: Drooping Amistr or +7 to +10 Alligator Leather Hat or Novice Gold Valkyrie Helm/ Hair Bow - from quest (maximize the effect with Hip Ribbon) Mid: Novice Gold Oracle Wings or Golden Wings  - from quest Lower: Polar Bear Rucksack (from Heroic Shop)/ Hip Ribbon - from quest Body: +7 to +10 Alligator Leather Breast Garment: +7 to +10 Alligator Leather Cloak Shoes:+7 to +10 Alligator Leather Shoes Accessories: +5 Ruby Rings or Enhancing Clip - from quest can be bought from other players too Weapon: Book:  or +7 to +10 Barren Book/Solid Book/Fine Book Shield: +7 to +10 Steel Shield or Valkyrja’s Shield  with Alice Card Cards Experimental Amistr Card Orc Sniper card Orc Fighter card Abysmal Knight card Orc Hero Card (this is a bit pricey but it’s a must have unless you just plan to farm in Alpha you won’t need this then) Marduk Card Marlon Card (effects may not be exactly the same as ESL but it is the cheaper version of ESL) Most of the equipment listed above can be crafted through Tailoring and Handicrafting which I believe is cheaper compared to buying from other players. Intermediate (for those who have average spending capacity or have been playing for quite some time enough to participate in some events) Kontei  Testament  Reset Girl’s Robe  - TAGRAS but players need to farm points from HoA for this Great Demon Shroud  - Sealed Shrine but can also be bought from other players Hardened Steel Spike Shield  - Murderous Mystery Mine or buy from other players Turtle General Shield - from RDC Coup de Turtle (account bound can be socket enchanted) Fey Boots  - Fluffy’s Return (account bound) Kitsune Hood  - from event but can also be bought from other players Large Red Angelwing  Vindicated Feathers  Day Ring  Present of Snow  - from event but can also be bought from other players Golden Wings  - from quest Valentine’s Balloon - from event Black Tie/Orange Tie - from event Pink Scarf - from event but can also be bought from other players Ring des Nibelungen  Recondite Ring  Poof Eye Ring  - Murderous Mystery Mine or buy from other players Leprecoin  - from event but can be bought from other players Ascendant Orc card (Yes it’s cheap but the footgear where you will slot this card is under intermediate) Gemini S-58 card Evil Snake Lord Card Mantis Card Hardened Anvil Card Ifrit Card Anunaki Card Please take note that the gears listed below are possibly add-ons to basic gears. They are classified as intermediate not merely because of their price but some items require players to be knowledgeable in doing events/quests/instances. Advanced (these items will not only exhaust zeny resources but also credits) +7 to +10 Heartbook Raok Runestone  - from RDC Tier 4 +10 Elvira Boots  - from event but can be bought from players +0 to +10 Vanna’s Dress  - from event but can be bought from players Red Tie /Yoyo Rucksack  - from Mining Points Shop Miner’s Hat  - from Mining Points Shop Angra Manyu  Ahura Mazdah  Amistr Beret  - from limited sale Cyber Kitty Ears  - from donor box Feline Glasses  - from limited sale Poring Party  - Mid lucky box Sea Captain’s Beret  - from limited sale Sea Captain’s Bubble Aura  - from limited sale Sea Captain’s Penguin  - from limited sale +30 Stat Wings +15 Stat Lower +30 Stat Lucky Box for Upper Premium Megingjard Giant Whisper Card Flamel Emul Card Orc Knight Card Build 2 This build is for those who prefer to use Heat (Solar, Lunar, Stellar) and Union. I think what differentiates this from the first build is that players need SP and HP intact while damaging the mob. Stats could be the same as Build 1, but the gears of this build are a bit different and in my opinion and more costly. Gears Upper: Drooping Amistr or anything slotted upper that boosts damage  It has to be 4 slotted in my opinion so that the player could place damage cards for upper like Experimental Amistr card. Mid: Fable’s Silk  or any donate mid  Fable silk is for unlimited soul link that the player would use for Union. The only down side of this one that I perceive is that it is one slotted. Thus, the player has to choose which of the immunity cards he has to choose and sacrifice. Premium mid can give at least +25 stats and the 4 slots in it can give the player a chance to place immunity/resist cards on it. I believe the only down side on this one is that the player would need many Soul Link potions if he/she wants to use Union, since players cannot bring an alt soul linker inside the MVP room due to IP restrictions. Lower: preferably slotted lower  place a pharaoh card in here so that SP usage would be lessened. Body: Reset Girl’s Robe  TBH this is my personal preference. For the card in this armor, place anything that is prefered. IMO the card on this armor depends on which MVP room the player is going to enter. Personally I place the following cards: Alpha and Beta - Porcellio card (Atk +25) Theta, Epsilon, Sigma and Gamma - Gloom Under Night card Delta - Marc or Grand Marin or Gioia for that antifreeze (TBH in this room GOH for Armor would be okay too) Omega - Ktullanux card (I personally use this on Ifrit) Garment: Great Demon Shroud  or +9 Heroic Backpack  (normally players put Anunaki or Flamel, but for this build i think Giant Whisper Card is better) Shoes: Fey Boots  or Elvira Boots  with Apache Tear Card/GEC) or Ascendant Orc Card I personally prefer the Apache Tear Card and General Egnigem Cenia Card because I jump around the mvp rooms a lot (not just inside 1 room but across rooms too). I like this card because I don’t really need to bring with me yggs to help me recover HP and SP or even talk to the MVP room NPC just to heal. Accessories: Recondite Ring / Ring Des Nibelungen / or Leprecoin  (I personally prefer Mantis Card on this one) or Premium Megingjard Weapon: Angra Manyu  with AK cards and possibly combine 1 Dracula card Angra Manyu is the best weapon for this build because it helps regain HP as damage is being inflicted on the mob. Moreover, if this is combined with a Dracula card the SP being drained by Heat is being replenished immediately. Shield: Ahura Mazdah  with Golden Thiefbug card Normally this shield is already good enough without a card for the anti knockback effect. However, since some MVPs could dispel (and hell yeah it’s totally annoying when miracle mode is already in effect) it is better to block it with a GTB card. Not just dispel, even decrease agi can be blocked by a GTB card. That’s about it for star gladiator build.
Hello everyone. I would like to share a specific star gladiator build for Melanis. Please take note that this build is only concentrated on fighting against Last Rites. This is NOT a generic build for all the other mobs in Melanis. Let’s get to know first the mob that we’re going to face. Last Rites Let’s get to know the enemy that we would be facing by using @mi Last Rites We can also check it on wiki: As for the skills used by this mob, so far I have only observed that it uses Heaven’s Drive, Wide Curse, and Wide Stone. Now that we now have an idea about the mob that we’re going to face. Let’s come up with a build that would work against Last Rites. Stats This is how I personally allocated the stats on my SG. To other players, they may opt to stat their character differently from this one. Str: 255 Agi:150 Vit: 80 Int: rest of the remaining stat points Dex: 175 (so we can match Last Rites’ flee) Luk: 1 Skills Solar, Lunar, and Stellar Opposition Lv3 (also known as Hatred) - this skill should be casted on Last Rites Solar, Lunar, and Stellar Perception Lv 3 (also known as Feeling) - this skill should be casted inside Melanis Map Mild Wind Level 4 (Fire) or Mild Wind Level 7 (Holy) - these skills enable the weapon to have either Fire or Holy property. I use this because it is very effective against Undead monsters. Tornado Stance Lv 1 - lets the Star Gladiator be in Tornado Stance Tornado Kick Lv 7 - allows the Star Gladiator 5*5 area damage while in Tornado Stance Stellar Heat Lv 3 - only usable when the map is aligned with stellar perception Stellar Protection Lv 3 - just like Stellar Heat, it’s only usable when the map is aligned with stellar perception Gears Upper: Amistr Beret  with 4x Giearth Cards Middle: Feline Glasses  with Orc Hero, Evil Snake Lord, Marduk, and Giearth Card Lower: Red Tie with Nightmare Card I’m really quite into resistance and immunity cards more so in this case because I’m not familiar with all the mobs in Melanis. I believe that it is better to be prepared against all sorts of mobs. Also, the reason why there’s so much Giearth Cards is I’m aiming for 100% earth resistance against Last Rites. Armor: Pragmatist Mail  with Treant Card and Unbreakable 5 (Hit from Pragmail is really needed) or with Pasana Card Garment: +9 Heroic Backpack  with Hode Card/Giant Whisper Card/Orc Zombie Card/Noxious Card/Raydric Card/Deviling (I chose cards like earth resist, neutral resist, undead resist, and increase in atk but it’s up to the player discretion what card to use) Shoes: Antique Shoes  or +10 Elvira Boots  with GEC or Apache tear card or Ascendant Orc Card Shield: Polished Shield  with Golden Thief Bug Card Accessory 1: Ring des Nibelungen  with Ifrit Card/ Hardened Anvil Card/Mantis Card Accessory 2: Vampiric Clip with Str3 and HpDrain2 or HpDrain5 Weapon: +10 Testament  with 2 Abysmal Knight Cards and Dracula Card Other gears that can be used are as follows: Armor: Lucius Fire Armor  Garment: Spell Manteau  Shoes: Fey Boots  Shield: Hardened Steel Spike Shield  with Golden Thief Bug Card or Medusa Accessory: Poof Eye Ring  with Ifrit Card/ Hardened Anvil Card/Mantis Card Please take note that this suggested build is still subject to change as it mostly depends on the player how he/she would deal with the situation while fighting against Last Rites. My playing style or approach might work for some or might not work for others. I hope this helps.
