Pve Ronin Guide

  • Hi everyone , its your favourite trainee GS Corpi. Here is a basic class guide for Ronin.

    Please note that this guide is for maximizing dps (nothing else),and also for at least +85(or 90).


    Basics about Ronin (Element-Subclass-Off/Def Stats)

    Ronin is a melee class which has consistent damage,remember tho it is not the best (interms of dps) and its attack speed cap is %72.


    The best choice of element for ronin is Storm. The main reasons of that are basicly the element match with Shinobi and Swift Kaiten Style(weapon mastery Left path)'s boost for Flying Black Swallow skill.


    Best sub class is Shinobi. Yeah i know, you shocked atm. But like i said, element match and crippling wind mastery makes shinobi a perfect sub class for Ronin.

    Of course there are other sub-class choices too but since its a guide for "maximizing dps" i will not explain or cover them.


    As offensive stats 99 points on DMG and rest on Spd(Assuming you are already capped for crit even with dungeon debuffs).

    As defensive stats 99 points on HP and rest on Def.



    Eidolons

    As an eidolon the best choice is Diao chan, the main reason of that is Dual drive buff. Also there is an other option too, Yumikaze for def shred.

    But keep that in mind, Ronin is a melee class.When u play Ronin/Shinobi, you might need a nocturnal effect from eidolon. It doesnt matter which one you pick any of them works.

    Kotonoha/Zephyrine/Hansel and Gretel/Tsubaki


    Recommended star buffs for all eidolons above.


    1-Star: Normal attack SPD +25%

    2-Star: Damage of Storm Skills +15%

    3-Star: Damage of Storm Skills +30%



    Also for movement speed Tigerius Caesar/Ayako/Cleopawtra.


    Recommended star buffs for all eidolons above.

    Emblem/Mount/Hat


    The best option for dps is switching.


    Skill bar.png


    This is my skill bar. It might help you to organize yours.Some of you might question me about my skill choices, but for me its the best and yes i only use 1 skill from my subclass.


    Switching Dmg against elemental (mount-hat-emblem for respective elemental boss') ,and also Storm skill dmg emblem+mount and dmg against boss monster hat(for no elemental (violent) boss' and some elites).

    Dont forget Move speed emblem too.

    Enchantments: For weapons any %8dd is fine (best option is with pen) but be careful about spd values.(best option is cards with different spd values)

    For armors and accessories lvl80 DMG cards(%3DMG+%1PEN+DMG) but lvl 70 %3DMG+DMG cards are fine too.


    Costumes:


    Dmg against boss monsters +%10 with premium head-HP for hat (max hp%2)

    Soul Blade skill level+5 with premium face-DMG for face (dmg%2)

    Cdmg against elite monsters +%50 with premium costume-DMG for body (dmg%2)

    Move speed+5 with premium back accessory-DMG for ornament (dmg%2)

    Dark Spear Raid skill level+5 with premium weapon-DMG for weapon (dmg%2)


    Secret stones


    To maximize dmg , %7 elemental+%2dmg is the best option for secret stones.


    As total %14 dark-ice / %7 flame-lightning-storm (you can skip storm and get any of those elementals).


    For Head: Azure Brilliant Dragon Flash Secret Stone

    Armor: Sunrise Blood Corruption Secret Stone

    Glove: Sunrise Black Swallow Secret Stone

    Belt: Golden Iaido Secret Stone

    Boot: Sunrise Dragon's Fury Secret Stone


    Pet


    If only we have a 5th skill bar,then i would(or might) recommend switching(elementals) but atm the best option is Dual drive(%4) and ms(%3) pets.(best second stat:%2dmg-%2crt or %2hp-%1 healing potency)


    Food: Dreamy Heaven+Golden Latte.


    Holy Chests: Nazrudin+Zaahir (best option is switching them between boss')

    full +15 nazrudin weapons= %51 dmg against ice

    full +15 zaahir weapons= %51 dmg against fire


    Shadow Warrior: Dancer.

  • Nice guide! Well done.

    But, but I have a quick question. Why do you need a nocturnal eido as ronin/shinobi when you have two nocturnal skills? The Ronin nocturnal skill already 100% heal you from 1% hp. In future patch notes they are reducing the animation time of the ronin nocturnal skill for it to heal even faster.

    Also why Diao Chan over Yumi/Cyril. Yumi has double def shred. % def shred from eido acc and a flat def shred from skills. Shouldn't that out damage the small DD given by Diao? Cyril has the insane damage from his storm ult, since eido benefit from your % of storm skill dmg as well.

  • Well, using those skills will reduce your dmg output for sure. So, to prevent that you might wanna use a nocturnal eid. I said Diao and then Yumi , i still saying same thing. Since most bosses die very quickly you dont need flat def shred much (assuming you capped %) , yes its good to have but i always prefer dd


    Also that is very legal dw :sleeping:

    How fast is a solo OW SFL hell mode nuke?

  • 5 sec ? :/ 7 at most maybe (depends on zeals tho) first boss takes longer cause no element ofc.

    Also you might wanna reread "Since most bosses die very quickly you dont need flat def shred much" , giving one example as dungeon does not change the "common" :rolleyes: .


    Like changing wep spec for vault only as "20 points from flame to storm targets" is the best choice but as general you def. need flame dmg more than storm.

  • As you said "most bosses die very quickly" so both builds achieves the same result. The bosses all die in matter of seconds. The difference is the def shred path also covers a bonus aspect. It allows dungeons you can't nuke like that to be completed faster. To recap, you are not losing anything when going the def shed path since both builds nuke the same, since the bosses are just not tanky enough. However, when you don't go the def shred path you are giving up the few dungeons you can't nuke like that.

  • I know, im saying if u at cap , you really dont need flat def shred. Unless your dmg output is not enough because lacking some achieve/wish/level stats.


    I ve no problems even without def shred or dd eid. So its up to personal pref i guess

  • The point is as it stands both paths achieve the same results in most dungeons because the bosses are easy to nuke. Except the def shred build will out perform in the few tanky dungeons that are in the game at the moment, and future harder dungeons.

  • Maybe in your case, not in mine since i dont need flat def shred :/


    Like i said personal pref.

  • it depends on boss , if boss requires stun then = soulblade+stun+razor+swallow/rond/aa with jumpcast and keep repeatin last part until boss dies.
