Finch's SB PvP Guide
Hi guys, I made this for all those who wanted to see my PvP build and style, and also to
those who are still deciding on what pvp builds to use,I hope you guys can learn something from
this and use anything you think will be useful for you. This is my own personal pvp build and
style, it doesnt mean that it's the best one out there. Enjoy XD.
I. Hotkeys Setup & Skill Spamming
I prefer using the epic 5 Keyboard Settings kasi nasanay na ko tska mas madali para
sakin hanapin yung mga keys. Here's how my spam hotkeys are setup: (only the important
F1 = Chips
Ctrl + F1 = Pass Damage
F2 = Creature Attack
Ctrl + F2 = Creature Follow
F3 = Energy Beat
F4 = (Pet skills) w/ debuff
F5 = (Pet skills) w/ debuff
F6 = (Pet skills)
F7 = (Pet skills)
F8 = (Pet skills)
F9 = (Pet skills)
F10 = (Pet skills)
Ctrl + F10 = (Pet skills)
F11 = (Pet skills)
Ctrl + F11 = (Pet skills)
F12 = (Pet skills)
Ctrl + F12 = (Pet skills)
As you can see, nilagay ko yung chips sa f1 pra madaling hanapin, and sa katabi nya yung
creature attack sa f2 and sa ctrl + f2 yung Creature Follow pra malapit lang sila lahat.
Importanteng nsa hotkeys mo yung creature follow pra laging nsa tabi mo lang ang both pets
mo. Pressing the Esc key 3 times commands only the highlighted target creature on your
creature formation. So mas mgnda meron nung creature follow shortcut sa hotkeys mo pra di
nawawala mga pets mo lalo na sa siege pag lagi kang tumatakbo minsan naiiwan ang pets.
Here's a video i made regarding this:
Sa pet skills nman hndi ako gumagamit ng auto-attack ng skills nila kasi mabagal bago mag cast.
Mas mabilis mag spam and mas in control kpag manually na cncast ang attack skills ng pets.
Most petclasses are using auto-attack ng skills ng pets nila kasi medyo complicated i control
manually ang skills ng 2 summoned pets + their own skills, dahil sa iba-iba ang cool time ng mga
skills ng mga pets kaya mahirap mag concentrate pag nsa combat. But, i found a way to make it
easier. Inaalternate ko yung mga skills ng two pets na summoned ko and tinatabi ko yung mga
skills nila with the same or close cool time pra hndi ako nalilito.
Like for example, pag 2 RP ang gamit ko, nilalagay ko ang Pixie Fireball ng 1st RP ko sa F4, then
yung Pixie Fireball din ng 2nd RP ko sa F5. Pareho sila may 15 secs CD (cool down)time. Tapos
nman yung Twin Sphere ng 1st and 2nd RPs nsa F6 & F7. Then, yung Blazing Flame nila nsa F8
and F9. So Basically, pag nsa combat ako ang gngwa ko chip muna, then press F3 for Energy
Beat then sabay ko pinpress ang F4 and F5 so sabay nag ccast 2 RPs, then sabay ko ulit pinpress
ang F6 and F7 for Twin Sphere nman, tapos sabay din yung F8 and F9 for Blazing Flame. So pag
nag sspam ako I start from the left to right, F1 - F12. This way, mas madali mag spam and mkaka
focus ka na sa combat kasi di mo na kelangan mag focus sa spamming and reflexes na lang ang
pag spam tska sabay matatapos ang cd time ng same skill ng both pets dahil sabay mo cinast.
Here's an example video of me using 2 RP:
Mas madami ang na dadamage pag ganto na manually using pet skills kasi mas madami kang
skills na nagamit. Pag nag dduel ako akala ng mga ka duel ko high + ang staves na gamit ko and
ng two pets ko when in fact my staff is only +4 and my two pets' staves are +3. I try to cast as
much spells as possible within a short period of time. It comes in handy especially like if i use
fear (my favorite pet skill XD), it fears my target for 5 seconds, and sometimes with chips, 5
seconds is enough for me to kill an opponent. Kaya lagi kong kinukuha ang fear ng pet pag
meron and get the max lvl. Kahit di man mamatay ang target ko within 5 secs, malaki nman ang
na damage ko, maybe red or orange hp na sila, so tatakbo sila, and since i use staff and my pets
are ranged, i can just shoot them and finish them off.
(When dual summoning, it is important to also turn on the 2nd pet's unity as soon as it was
summoned + sb boost if you want because that extra additional buff helps a lot when in combat
and it doesnt take long to turn on the unity + buffing the pet with boost, and you can do both at
the same time)
II. PvP Build (Stones, Belt, Rings)
Everyone has their own PvP builds. Some spell casters use pure Int + Vit, some melee
people use pure Str + Vit so they can deal the most damage possible on their opponent. But,
even if you have like 5k M. Atk or P. Atk, if you can't hit your opponent, your patk and matk is
basically useless. A player with high Agi and evasion is hard for a melee opponent to beat
because a lot of their attacks miss, their stuns, debuffs, etc.. And a player with high Wis is hard
for a spell caster to beat, because not only does wisdom increase Magical Defense and Magical
Accuracy, it also increases Magic Resistance.
So, let's say you're a mage or a spell caster and you are fighting someone who has very high
wisdom, using epic wisdom stones, using siren belt, Mres earrings, and wis rings. Chances are,
most, if not all of your cc skills will fail and even your attack spells will mostly miss too. This is
especially hard if your opponent is a Bishop or Priest, because they have Blessing of Wisdom
which gives them more Wis, Mres, and Mdef.
Right now, the soul stones i have in my gears are, Vit/Wis with a bit of Int. I am planning
on going full Wis/Vit once i get a high + R7 staff. Though more Int = more M. Atk, the damage
you deal on players are 10 times less then the damage you deal on mobs. So even if let's say
you inflict 10k damage when using EB on a mob, then with +200 matk buff, you get 1k increase
in damage. But against players, divide that 1k increase by 10, and you get only a 100 damage
When im PvPing, i use Siren Belt (Bonus Wis) and Mres Earring (Resistance on spells). Since i
have high wis 'cause most stones I socketed into my gears are wis, I resist a lot of CC and spells
from players who try to attack me, and even if they do hit me, their damage is low because i
have high Mdef. Sure, i have less M Atk but that's where my spamming skill comes into play XD.
Here's a video of me in action using siren belt + mres earring + wis stones on gears:
And, here's a video of me showing my entire gears:
The Durability bonus on my gears are Mov Speed/Evasion. It's great against melee classes kasi
kung lumapit man sila sakin tapos i-attack ako, na ddodge ko ang ibang attacks nila, + i can
move freakin fast lalo pag may huna speed buff + hv speed buff so no o-outrun ko lang yung
mga melee classes and I use my mov speed advantage by kiting (Yes! i love kiting XD) and
circling around them while my pets kill them and I occasionally use eb while i keep my distance
from them. And, in situations na malapit na ko mamatay, i can easily survive just by running
away fast. And since I'm wis build, often times mag f-fail ang cc ng kalaban sakin if ever they try
to stop me from running.
Dati, nung nsa exo pa ako, since madami ang mga mahilig dun mag front liner and
marami mga melees, ang gamit ko dati pag siege na rings ay 2 Luck Rings + Mres Earring (with
+4% Crit Ratio). Though, hindi naman laging crit ang eb ko, madalas pa rin mag crit, so, since
mababa ang int ko, kasi wis ang stones ko and vit, with luck build, pag nag crit ang eb ko, it
almost doubles the damage I usually deal. So, prang high Int pa rin ako, and still have high mres
and mdef. Pero since, mababa ang HP ko kasi nka luck rings ako, lagi lang ako nsa likod ng mga
ka party ko nag ssnipe and just spamming at di lang nagpapahalata.
I tested my damage on someone with chips using 2 Luck Rings, Mres Earrings (w/+4% crit), + R7
Ardent 2h Staff ( +6.3% Crit), and koala potion. I was fully buffed. With cleric buffs and HV Buffs.
I tested it on a R7 Archer, GreyGooseVODKA (thanks grey). He has over 20k HP, and a bishop
(w/ angel pet) which is xonix (ty xonix XD) was healing him. Here's the video:
III. Siege Tactic & Targets
On sieges, I usually target the ones that most people ignore, like pets (yes, im a pet
killer lol). I especially love killing the pets of those classes who dont have healing skills, like BS,
CM, WL, etc (some have heal skills but rarely uses it 'cause of slow cast time). On petclasses,
kpag patay ang 2nd pet nila, their pass damage is useless, so kapag pinatay ko ang pets ng like
let's say a BS, then wlang kwenta na ang pass damage nya, and yung mga party members ko na
lang ang pumapatay dun sa BS. And since the only classes that have skills that can resurrect pets
are SB, Bishop, Priest, and Druid, yung ibang classes are forced to use res scrolls on their pets
(or CRS if they want to use a 800k ruppees scroll).
Most healers focus only on healing people, and 90% of SB's dont even heal their party
member's pets on sieges in critical situations when there are a lot of enemies, cause they're
focused on healing their own pets and trying to survive and killing enemies. In situations like
that when 2 teams of each opposing guild are on area and are trying to kill each other, that's
when i focus on killing pets. Kasi ang healers mag ffocus on healing their party members and not
the pets on situations like that.
Pinapatay ko ang mga High Threat, Low HP pets muna, like BP, Naga, Ifrit, RP, etc.. Those low
HP pets are sure dead, kasi kahit man on sb or healer, di nila ma out heal ang damage ng spam
ko kpag tinarget ko ang low HP pet. So, pag namatay ang pet nila, and they decided to use scroll
on it, e di on CD na yung scroll nila, pag may namatay na party member nila hndi nila ma res kasi
on CD, though kung mayaman sila at gusto nila gumamit ng CRS it's up to them, ill just kill the
pet again once they res it, and this time the pet would die faster kasi wla nang buffs kasi
Sa siege, I ALWAYS kill the BP first, before the healer. Kasi BP has low HP, and got 2 instant
heals, and a healer (Bishop or Priest) are hard for a spell caster to kill due to their very high
mdef. And with a BP healing them, it's even way harder. I've tried this on just101 before (ty
dom XD) and other bishops and priests as well.
Ang mga prnprioritize kong classes na i-target sa siege are healers first (of course XD), then CM
or WL, then Archer, then Druid. Pag sa petclasses nman inuuna ko muna ang pets nila, that way,
they become easy to kill, and when they get ressed, they are temporarily incapacitated and
weak, kasi kelangan pa nila i-res ang pets nila, then i hheal pa, then i bbuff pa. Sa time na yun na
pag recover nila (buffing, healing, ressing) mas mahina ang team nila kasi kulang sila tao and
mas madali pra sa guild members ko na i take over ang certain area ng dungeon which puts us
one step forward and closer to taking their base.
Yan lang natatanddan ko ngayon. Critisisms are welcome of course XD, and if I missed anything,
please do tell me so i can add it on here. Thank You!!
