Finalizing Square Enix's Fantasy in Final Fantasy XIV

Before Final Fantasy XIII managed to trudge itself to the console world, Final Fantasy and other fellow Square fans were happy and content – too happy even. The game that has been milked dry, and the numerous eponyms of Square Enix's flagship brand has certainly kept fans from all walks of life satisfied. But as ideas run dry and fantasies turn sour, some game companies look to the MMO market as another venture or frontier. Square Enix is one of them. Their continuing success with Final Fantasy XI has given them a place in the MMO community.

However, things seem to have derailed when Final Fantasy XIV was released.

Komikon 2011 Aftermath

As promised, Princess Cow and I attended the recently concluded Komikon 2011, held at the Bayanihan Center. It was a day the two of us were looking forward to, an event we were very eager to attend.

It was a day that we were both happy to spend our money on.

So I ditched my medical books while Princess Cow ditched her post-grad class just so we could attend this glorious day for Philippine Comics.

Going there was already an adventure. Stepping into the venue is like going to an entirely new dimension.

Dragon Nest Mercenary Skill Build

I have been eaten up by this Dragon Nest craze that I chose to try it out. I didn't think it would gobble me up like this. Dragon Nest's gameplay, controls, and maps are so engaging that it has turned into a new bonding activity for me and Princess Cow.

This guide will be using a Level 40 Axe Hybrid Mercenary Skill Build. I chose this because just like it's author, I am a fan of Cabal Online and this build draws inspiration from that game, particularly its Warrior class. Aside from that, I myself am playing an Axe Mercenary because of it's high damage and my fondness for dungeon runs.

A point to note is that Mercenaries have no magic or physical build difference. All their skills are based on physical attack. And this is also a good class for both PvP and PvE. However, there are really many skills for Mercenaries so you have to give and take. You may want to shift some SP from attack skills to defensive skills for higher survivability.
  • High Spammability – You will many skills to spam most of the time. This feels more exciting compared to the situation if you need to wait long time for your skills to cool down.
  • Able to learn many useful skills including the various howls which benefit either yourself or the whole party member within the vicinity.
  • Low Mana – The reason is the same as physical Swordmasters. Since your equipment will be based on the Bear stats and not Wisdom, your mana pool will be low. Hence, you may need heraldry plate for MP or a MP regen item to cover this issue.
  • One of the Discriminated Class – Despite the usefulness of a Mercenary, many people still favour the other classes more, like Paladins, Clerics, Force User and Bowmaster. You may find yourself having some difficulties getting into harder nests. However, you don’t have to worry much if you have a group of friends with you or you’re in a helpful guild.
Take note that the English names of the skills are taken reference from MMOsite, hence the names may contradict what we have in Dragon Nest SEA.

If you need to use the simulator to come up with your own build, you may find it here.
