Ragnarok Online 2: Swordsman Guide

The identified "tank" of RO2, the Swordsman class is a melee class dependent on close range battles. They are generally the first person to take damage and deliver damage in a battle, fighting on the frontlines of a battle. A Novice can become a Swordsman after a certain requirement, at this time unknown, is met. The Swordsman relies on damage skills, though it also has several powerful defensive skills. It can successfully fight high level monsters much higher than its level due to its high HP and damage ratio. Most of its attacks center around dealing damage, though some are geared towards dealing damage towards more than one target at the same time. It is severely limited in ranged attacks, however. In RO1, a swordsman could advance to either a Knight or Crusader at job level 40-50. The Knight, which is an improvement on the Swordsman's damage dealing ideal, relies on high damage skills. A Crusader, who is more of a battlemage, relies on a balance of both damage skills and buff skills. It is unknown at this point if the Knight or Crusader will be introduced into RO2.

Cabal's upcoming patch update, Episode 10: Rising Force, will be divided into 3 parts, with the first two parts revealed to be entitled Freeze and Tower of Undead, respectively.

The third part is yet to be unveiled.

Episode 10 shows a drastic but definitely good change for all the game's character classes, as all of the skills will be tweaked or modified in one way or another. Aside from that, there are also new stats to help players improve their respective characters. There are also new skills for the Force Blader, Wizard, Force Shielder, and Force Archer.

Players will also be treated to a new Mission Battle System that will test everyone's piloting skills, as this is for PVP lovers.

Dragon Nest KR Adds Kali to Character Line-up

Dragon Nest KR has updated their servers with the introduction of the 6th class, the Kali, into the fore.

The Kali, also known as the Dancer, uses dual fans for weapons (remember Kitana in Mortal Kombat?) and is loaded with unique buffs and debuffs with styles that could either be based on paper or darkness. She is an ideal character to use if you are fond of attack speed.

I'm sure Dragon Nest SEA will soon be able to get a taste of the skillful Kali.

According to foreign reports with evidence from Cabal II's official boards, accounts have been hacked on a daily basis since the game went into Open Beta on the 14th last month. Around 6% of the threads posted since that date are related to accounts being compromised.
