Ensemble Songs:
-- All Ensemble Songs need a Gypsy and Clown to be in the same party, and standing next to each other. They both need a Instrument/Whip. They also both need to know the song. --
-- Since Ensemble songs aren't really used in the server, I will only cover up the most used ones and mention the rest. If you want to know more detail about the other songs, use wiki or rms. --

bd_siegfried.gif Invulnerable Siegfried (Lv5) - (on max lv) Gives 80% Elemental resistance and 50% resistance to Status for the Party in the AOE.
bd_rokisweil.gif Loki's Veil (Lv1) - Skills can't be used within the songs range.
bd_drumbattlefield.gif Drum of Battlefield (Lv5) - Increases the Parties ATK and DEF.
Other Ensemble Songs are: Lullaby, Into the Abyss, Eternal Chaos, Mr. Kim A Rich Man, The Ring of Nibelungen and Moonlit Water Mill.


========== Soul Linkers and you ==========

sl_barddancer.gif Soul Linkers are very important for Performers because they can give you a great support with their "Bard and Dancer Spirit". TIP: for using alts to link yourself or for Soul Linker, if you Friend the Clown/Gypsy you can easy Link them by just use the skill and click in the Friend window without the hassle of finding them in the crowd.


    What does that mean "being linked"?
When you are linked, all the songs you play will also affect you. Means you obtain the Cast reduction/ACD reduction from Bragi or the HP bonus from Apple. HOWEVER, this also means you get the negative effect (not PDFM), like from Loki's Veil. If you are linked and use Loki's Veil, you cannot use skills within it. If you aren't linked, you can use skills within it.
The Link also increases your walking speed while playing a song.
And the Link also "links" the songs of both Performer branches (if the songs are lv10). This basically means, if you are a Gypsy, you know Fortune's Kiss Lv10 and you get Soul linked, you know can use Poem of Bragi. And vice versa for Clowns.

Whistle <==> Humming
Assassin Cross of Sunset <==> Please don't forget me
Apple of Idunn <==> Service for you
Poem of Bragi <==> Fortune's Kiss

Linked songs can be found in your "ETC" tab of the skill window.



========== Tarot Card of Fate and you ==========


Probably one of the most infamous skills of the class is the Tarot card of Fate, mostly just short called "Tarot". The skill contains 14 cards, with different effects. A list of them with pictures can be found here: https://irowiki.org/wiki/Tarot_Card_of_Fate (or on the revival wiki)
The most effective cards being:
The High Priestess - Removes all buffs (similar Gospel effect)
The Death - Causes Coma (if not immune), HP/SP will be set to 1 and other status
The Chariot - Randomly breaks a Equipment (ignoring FCP)
The Wheel of Fortune - Causes randomly 2 other card effects


========== Tarot Card of Hope and you ==========

Tarot Card of Hope is a custom skill/Quest for Clowns and Gypsies: http://wiki.ragnarevival.com/wiki/Tarot_Card_of_Hope_Quest
To start the Quest you need to have maximum Reputation. Once you gained the Skill, you can add more card effects by using items monsters drop.
Currently there are 8 cards in game, "The Trickster" and "The Courage" you will obtain when you finish the quest.

"The Clown", "The Cardinal", "The Cart", "The Entwined", "The Angel" and "The Wildness" are dropped by different monsters.



========== Touhou Hats and you ==========

Touhou Lucky boxes provide several different hats for the main classes of the game.
The hat for Clowns is Lyrica Hat [2] and the one for Gypsy Night Sparrow Hat [2].

Lyrica Hat [2] upgrades Pang Voice to Throe Voice if refined to +7. The effect changes to forcefully making the Target and surrounding enemies sit down. This is pretty handy in slowing enemies down so your teammates can take better care of them. Considered a stable item for Clowns (at +7).
Night Sparrow Hat [2] upgrades Wink of Charm to Charming Kiss at a refine of +7. Charming Kiss makes it impossible for the Target to attack you. You can only charm one Player at a time tho.



========== Third Job Skill Hats and you ==========

During Sale periods, Third Job Skill hats got released in the Cash shop, these were 30c back then and had the sprites of the headgears you usually obtained when job changing into a third class.
-- as of right now writing this guide, I can't find the specific effects of the songs (with possible modifications for Loki) in Forums, Wiki or per @id in game, so I will just mention them. --
Dying Swan
Granted the Skills wa_moonlit_serenade.gifMoonlight Serenade and wa_symphony_of_lover.gifSymphony of Lovers.
Maestro Song's Hat
Enabled the use of mi_rush_windmill.gifWindmill Rush and mi_echosong.gif Echo Song.


========== Performer in WoE ... and you ==========

As already mention, the main role of Performer, Clown and Gypsy, is more focused on being supportive and annoying to handle for your enemy.
Main Tasks: Play songs, make sure your Teammates are buffed; Slow down enemies with either PDFM, Scream or Frost Joke; Help killing with Tarot.

Playing Songs
Sadly due to the new client, songs won't have a visual effect as before. Older Players might have a better feeling for who is still in song range and who not, then newer players to the class. The only "indicator" that someone is under the songs effect is now, that they have a glow. Different songs have different colored glows, Idunn is green, Service has a more pink glow.
The Songs effect range is 5x5 around the caster. Songs like Poem of Bragi also effect the enemy. Make sure you stop them so you won't give your enemy a free buff.

Flashing Songs
"Flashing Songs" means the quick cast of multiple songs after another. Usually, if you just keep one song up, it's effect will stay for 3min. However, when you cancel and start another song, this duration will reduce to 20sec.
You can flash all songs and give your team quick buffs, this is especially handy in Urgent Calls in WoE. Flashing can be done in two ways, the most commonly one in this Server is by using Adaptation (since it has no delay). The second method be by equipping another weapon (not Instrument/Whip), the song will get canceled, you can re-equip your Instrument, play a new song and repeat. No matter how you wanna proceed on quick changing your songs, make sure you set your hotkeys the most comfortable for yourself.


Stat Affection on Songs
The buffs the different songs give depend usually on the level of Music/ Dancing Lesson you learned and your own stats (base + bonus).
You can set those stats as high as you want, but the INT and DEX bonus used in Poem of Bragi always gonna be capped at 150 INT and 120 DEX.

Due to the calculation formula using Dancing/ Music Lesson, songs you not originally learned (linked ones), like Gypsy getting Bragi or a Clown getting Service for you, will always be weaker. Under the following will be a example. If you want to know details about the other songs, refer to the revival wiki.

Apple of Idunn https://wiki.ragnarevival.com/wiki/The_Apple_of_Idun
A Clown with 180 VIT will give 53% max HP and recover 225 HP, a Gypsy with the same VIT will give 43% max HP and recover 175 HP.


Helping Guild members, Trolling around
Performer got plenty of ways to slow down enemies and inflict all kinds of status on them. If an enemy tries to run away or rush in, you can PDFM him.
People with less status immunity (Pure Glass canon Killers, or some Paladin) will be heavily affected by Frost Joker/Scream. Silence, Stone Curse and Freeze can make them stop attack. Usually Targets with Tao Gunka or Ghostring freeze. TIP: Teaming up with Creator/Champion. Facing those, some enemies tend to tank them with Ghostring, but then they will also freeze to your Joke.
If everyone is buffed up with songs, including yourself you can make yourself useful by spamming Tarot on the enemy and hope of getting good card effects.


Generally it is ok for you to be in a party, in fact if you wanna use Ensemble Skills, you must be in one (Ensemble skill effects only include the party). However, if you wanna focus on Joke/Scream, you need to consider that it will affect also your party. If someone isn’t Freeze immune, you will freeze him constantly. That’s why you might need to be party-less if doing that.


========== Stats, Consumables, Gears ... and you ==========


-- Left picture is a more Demi-Human/PD focused build, the picture on the right a Flee build with AGI that allows Cloaking. --

In general it's good to go with LUK for some decent PD. Min. 80 VIT and 90 AGI for the Gemini-Card effect. 150 DEX and INT for maximum Bragi bonus. STR to hold items like Potions.
Alternatively you can go for a more Flee oriented build, with Fox Ears (which grants Cloaking skill with 250 AGI).
Flee gives you a chance to evade skill attacks (which not include magic), Perfect Dodge gives you the chance to evade melee attacks, to the point that with 100 PD and more your enemy will completely miss you.


547.gif Condensed White Potions - Main HP heal item in WoE, gives 50% more heal if you use Potion made by one of the top 10 ranked Creators (/alchemist)
505.gif Blue Potion - Main SP heal item, also gives 50% bonus if the Creator is ranked
525.gif Panacea - Cures abnormal status
12016.gif Speed Potion / Box of Thunder - Increases Walking Speed for a short period, perfect to come back to your team or escape enemies
12118.gif Elemental Proof Potions - Depending on the resist you desire, they give you 20% on either Fire, Water, Wind or Earth
12320.gif Schwartzwald Pine Jubilee - Gives you 20 PD for 10min
12280.gif Holy Elemental Scroll - Enchants Armor with Holy Property
14544.gif Big Magic Defense Potion / 14542.gif Big Defense Potion - +3% resistance to Magical/ Physical attacks
602.gif Butterfly Wing - You can't use @return in WoE (tho @go works, if your spawn is set on a close @go point, you don't need that)
1767.gif Arrows - Shadow/Holy/Earth or a Status Arrow always can be handy in case you need to attack


Under the following I will list useful Items, alternatives for gears. You will not need every single piece but it's always nice to have options. I will also include Cards.


-- Left, Demi-Human Resist and PD focus; Right, Flee with cloaking from Fox Ears. --


Headgear options
2228.gif Antique Helm [2] - Can be set with different effects, check wiki for "Antique" to see the full options. This one has Demi-Human Resist 10%, Neutral Resist 5%, Max HP 10% and Intravision.
5200.gif Event Coppola [2] - All Stats +10, Matk/Atk +10%, Demi-Human Resist 10%
5489.gif Healer's Heart Hat [2] - Bleeding/Silence Resist +50%, Demi-Human Resist 10%, 15% more Healing on you
2226.gif Fox Ears [4] - PD +5, Crit +20, Flee +130, DEX +30, If AGI 250> grants Cloaking Lv3
2226.gif Large White Angelwings [1] - Decrease taken damage by 10%, 10% more Healing on you, PD +10
2226.gif Wing Headphones [1] - VIT +10, STR +5, INT +5, Nullifies HP Regen, Demi-Human Resist 10%
2226.gif Fable Silks [1] - Soul Links you with your class effect, ACD +10%, increase damage from all by 20%
(basically any donor mid is good to go, People usually go for "Speed Wings" or whatever fancy item is currently on sale)
2226.gif Elegant Wings [4] - All Stats +15, Flee +40, PD +5, Hit +30
2226.gif Rose Ring [4] - All Stats +25, Movement Speed +25% (Speed Wings Example)
(basically any donor lower goes, depending on what you prefer/need)
2226.gif Panda Rucksack [1] - All Stats +10, Chance on inflicting "Deep Sleep" on attacker if being hit
2226.gif Poring Balloon [1] - All Stats +15, Resistance to all Status +10% ("Balloons", is a series of similar Gears with the same effect)
31055.gif Poring Pipe [1] - All Stats +10, Demi-Human Resist 3%
2226.gif Fuzzy Bunny Scarf [0] - Resistance to all Elements 5%
2226.gif Honoray Bunny Mouth [0] - Blind/Silence Immunity, Water Resist 10%
card.gif Gemini-S58 Card - Stun/Silence Resist +30% if AGI 90>, Stone/Sleep Resist +50% if VIT 80>
card.gif Giearth Card - Chaos Immunity, Earth Resist +15%
card.gif Marduk Card - Silence Immunity
card.gif Orc Hero Card - Stun Immunity, VIT +3
card.gif Evil Snake Lord Card - Blind/Curse Immunity, INT +3
card.gif Leaf Cat Card / card.gif Leib Olmai Card / card.gif Giant Hornet Card / card.gif Permeter Card - Water Resist +10% / Fire Resist +10% / Wind Resist +10% / Shadow, Undead Resist 15%
card.gif Maya Purple Card - Intravision

Which cards you use in your headgears depends on your needs and what works the best for you. I personally prefer status immunities over Elemental resistance. I use 3 Gemini Cards to gain immunity to the most status (in combo with my Pet that gives 10% to all, you can archive the same with a "Balloon" lower).
While Fable Silks permanently links you with your class link (until you die), it is more of an emergency item. You will take more damage from all sources if you wear it, so it's really suitable in a heavy combat situation.


Armor options
15047.gif WoE Suit [1] - Mdef +5, PD +10, Water Resist +10%, Atk +5%; Refine +5: 15% more Healing on you; Refine +8: Max HP 20% (WoE Set Bonus) Demi-Human Resist +20%, Damage on Demi +10%, 5% more Healing on you
15047.gif Siege Suit [1] - Mdef +4, Medium Resist +3%; Refine +5: PD +5, Long-Range Resist +10%; Refine +8: Max HP +5% (Siege Set Bonus) Dex +5, Demi-Human Resist +7%
15032.gif Tidung [1] - Mdef +10, decrease damage from all by 10%, Stun/Freeze Resist +50%
2318.gif Great Old Hauberk [0] - PD +10, Max HP/SP +20%, ACD -10%, Mdef +10, Atk/MAtk +5%, Crit +5, Hit +10, Igonres Enemies Mdef by 10%, Freeze Immunity, Water/Neutral Resist +10%, Unbreakable, Unstrippable
2341.gif Orc Knight Plate [1] - 10% of ignoring all melee damage, Flee +75, Earth Resist +10%, Mdef Bonus with refine
2399.gif Variegated Vest [1] - Enables usage of Warm Wind Lv4, Unbreakable, Unstrippable, Max HP/SP +10% per 1% refines, DEF +1 per 2 refines, Mdef +1 per refines

card.gif Marc Card - Freeze Immunity, Water Resist +5%
card.gif Detardeurus Card (Detale Card) - Mdef -20, Chance of casting Land Protector Lv1 on yourself when being magically attacked, Freeze Immunity

As you might can guess from the card choices, Freeze immunity is always a good thing to have. It makes you more independent in your movement, you don't need being hit from enemy or Priest Recovery from getting out of it.


Garment Options
2586.gif WoE Manteau [1] - Mdef +5, All Element Resist +1% per refine, Max HP/SP +1% per refine, Demi Resist +1% per 2 refines (WoE Set Combo)

2528.gif Wool Scarf [1] - Mdef +4 (Tidal Shoes Combo) Max HP +10% --Commonly used for Melanis Enchants--
card.gif Raydric Card - Neutral Resist +20%
card.gif Polistes Card - Close Range Resist +10%, Neutral Resist +10%
card.gif Noxious Card - Long Range Resist +10%, Neutral Resist -10%
card.gif Nobby the Novice Card - Flee +40, PD +8, Neutral Resist +10%

card.gif Leak Card - STR +3, Chance of causing Confusion when doing physical/magical damage

Garment Cards usually aim for Resistance, if you want to be prepared for any situation you gonna need to get a few ready. Leak Card is one neat choice for Trolling, because it combos with Frost Joke/Scream. Meaning you can confuse your enemy while using these Skills on a safe spot.


Shoes Options
2484.gif WoE Boots [1] - Mdef +5, AGI +10, Max HP +1,5% per refine, Reduce Magic damage by 1% per 2 refines  (WoE Set Combo)

card.gif Amon Ra Card - All Stat +3, Adds chance on casting Kyrie Elesion Lv10 based on your INT

On Shoes the card options aren't that big, usually people go for GEC in terms of tanking. Amon Ra is more a gimmicky side option if you got decent INT investment.


Weapon Options
1914.gifRalph's Requinto [3] / 1969.gifVanessa's Stockwhip [3] - INT +5; DEX +5, Increase Damage on Medium +2*(Dancing/Music LessonLv)%, Tarot Card of Fate +2Lv, Chance of casting Tarot Lv10 on enemy when using Arrow Vulcan

1935.gifUkulele of New Oz [2] / 1990.gifBloody Floral Decorated Microphone [2] - DEX +5, INT +3, Max HP +1% per 2 refine, ACD -1% per 2 refine (Combos; Ring New Oz Wing/ Bloody Floral Decoration Bracelet) Ukulele: Frost Joke has small chance of causing Stone Curse /Microphone: Scream has small chance to cause Freeze

1228.gif Combat Knife [0] - Demi Resist +10%, Pierces Demi defense
18111.gif Creeper Bow [2] - DEX +1, Chance of casting Spider Web lv1 on target when attacking

card.gif Little Fatum Card - Chance of causing Silence when doing magical damage
card.gif Drake Card - 2% chance of causing Critical Wounds on physical attack

card.gif Valkyrie Rangris Card - 1% chance of castig Dispell Lv1 when attacking, Unbreakable, ATK +10%

There are plenty of more "Status" cards you can choose from, I just named the mainly used ones. On the Bow department, I also just picked the one I use. I am usually not a Killer, so I don't have expereience on what's the best there. Ralph's and Vannessa's Weapon are the best choice if you want to spam Tarot a lot. The 2 additional levels mean that your Tarot has a success chance of 56%.
For the Trolling, Little Fatum Card has the same synergy as Leak Card. It works with Frost Joke/Scream, so it is almost a stable choice in any weapon if you want to use that skill. I just use Golem card because I am lazy FCP.


Shield Options
2168.gif Immune Shield [1] - Refine +5: Neutral Resist +1% per refine; Refine +7: Neutral Resist +5%; Refine +10: Water, Wind, Earth, Fire Resist +10%

2138.gif Shield Antique [1] - Can be set with different effects, check wiki for "Antique" to see the full options. This one has Neutral +2%, Long Range Resist +6%, Non-Boss Resist +10%, Magic Resist 6%
2114.gif Vigilante Shield [1] - All Element Resist +10%, 10% Chance of ignoring any damage, Reduces damage from all attacks by 10%, ATK/Matk/Flee/PD/Hit -50%, Increase AD ACD, Reduces ASPD

Best get to go card in every WoE/Pvp scenario is Thara Frog. Other things can be optional used, like Maya if you know your enemy single targets you alot and want to let him pay for that. For the Shields, there are also plenty more to chose from, as always just the mostly common ones.

Whichever you prefer, adding more PD, Resist or Flee.


========== Conclusion ==========

Clown and Gypsy and be a lot of fun to play, but if you want to be a pure support, your effectiveness depends a lot on your teammates. Sadly, mostly due to the Songs Bragi and Whistle, and to the fact that Stone Curse resistance is far more common then Freeze (on some classes), Gypsy is devastatingly outclassed by Clown.
But Gypsy still can be fun too, especially in non-donor WoE.

You could also use Ethereal Twilight instead of white angel wing it will make your clown much better☺️

That might be, but I don't have the resources for that, so I probably stay with my nub wings.

Also it is just optional, for the class basically any mid goes. 😛

Hi sir if bard survive in hoa and what item nid.... 

i might should had added HoA since the weapons kinda important. haha


Well first off I'm not a proat killing things. What I usually do with classes like that is melee (yolo) crit lock.

You do can go Double Strafe things, but then you need a good spam.


For the melee crit I usually went Amistr hat (Amistr Beret), LRR, (any lower), Gator Set parts, Recon Rings, Basically your default High Crit gears. Any 4 slotted weapon/Thana Weapon if you got.

Note; I use to farm Prontera, you will need Ghostring/Deviling tor that or Lora rekts ya butt. 


Beside that, a lootttt slim potions, running from Pyuriel and Fire Converts and you should be fine. 


Pro Tip: Heirozoist card has the chance to transmorph monsters on attack, and you still get that GP in HoA.
