Guide on Low Budget Super Novice

this means you cannot YOLO those metaling at novice ground with fast dagger because there is a fair chance metaling will poke you to death, therefore negating the bonus for you.

Yeah this is true, the problem for starting super novices is how to avoid death at novice grounds while maximizing exp gain (and metalings are very few, it's actually frustrating to find and kill 100 of those). Let me share how I do it, reach level 40 at novice grounds (x8 rates), fast, easy and no death at all

9 STR, 9 AGI, 5 VIT and 5 DEX first stat allocation

Kill exactly 80 poporings (or some drops if you need that little exp but you're near death) using fast dagger and strong dagger. All stats you gained from levelling up should be allocated to INT, all of it. Once you got the wand, JT 40 metalings, you should be able to 1 hit them with JT. After killing a total of 120 monsters, you should be around level 39 (80%~) to level 40. Doing it this way lessens the stress of finding metalings and dying repeatedly. Dont forget to pick up loots since level 40-45 as a novice is best done via renting archer mercenary (10k per scroll and lasts 30 minutes) and buying mercenary blue potions (very cheap, 20 pcs should be enough) and DS those wolves (pick up those loots). You would be level 45 in 10 minutes or less including walking time lel.

I usually start with 9 str, 9 agi, and 9 dex. My first 4 kills would be drops, then I would put 1 point in str just to round it up to 10, then dex until base 20-30, then all int, but your method works too

A few months ago, when I was making a gunslinger just for the lulz, I managed to leave the novice ground at base level 43, almost 44 even, thanks to 1 week worth of rest exp bonus /gg

yes, rest exp helps a lot :D it is not a bad idea, to make the char, let it sleepú for week and start lvling when the rest bonus pool is full :D

unlike you, I start in pront and lvl my novices in hidden temple - flywings for hunterfly are a must though..

I want to share this method to everyone on TalonRO that are interested of being a Super Novice !!

To be a Super Novice u have to be Base Lv 45 and Job Lv 10 as a Novice, by then u can talk to the Job Changer NPC and he will make u into a Super Novice

Pros and Cons ;

Pros :

  • All of the first class skills can be used by Super Novice.
  • U can be any role, Example: Bolter, Greeder ( Looting ), Support.
  • Can reach IC ( Instant Cast ) without dex gears and kaho. * Not for a Super Baby of course *
  • Cheap Gears already can made u look like a PRO.
  • When u level up each time, You'll receive buff stats. Example : Kyrie Eleison , Magnificat, Gloria, Suffragium, Impositio Manus

Cons :

  • Low HP & SP pool, Real Low !! This can be overcome by Gears and Cards.
  • People don't trust Super Novice on Party, So u could hardly be invited to join any Leveling/ Farming Party, So basically you are a Solo player. But I don't find this a problem !
  • Limited Gears, Most gear had the label of All Jobs except Novice, that novice include super novice so, You can't wear any gears the rest of the players are wearing, but they can't wears yours too :D 
  • The only job that needed Base Lv 45 to job change, leveling a Novice from base Lv1 to 45? HOoO without skills? yeah serious its kinda hard for newbie but it'll pay off !

I recommend new players to stay on Training Ground ( when u first created your char u start off there ), leveling until base at least 45 to be able to job change to Super Novice !

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Let start off with GEARS !! LOW BUDGET ONE !!

  • Headgear : Super Novice Hat [1] ( Slotted is can only be bought from players for 100k ~ 150k or Dropped by Holden [1.5%] )

  • Robe : Somber Novice Hood [0] ( You start of with this as a Novice, Unless u lost it? Can be bought from NPC at Prontera Upper Middle for 1 zeny oh goodie )
  • *This is basically using a Garment with Raydric Card on :P*

Increase resistance to Neutral Property attacks by 20%.
Impossible to refine this item.

  • Shoes : Novice Shoes [1] (Can be bought from NPC at Lighthalzen)

Maximum HP + 5%

  • Recommended Card : Eggyra ( Less than 100k ) hardly be found for sale.

SP Recovery + 15%

*No card is okay though*

Novice Armlet :  STR + 1, INT + 1, LUK + 1

Clip : Maximum SP + 10

  • Recommended Card : Siroma Card [Price 400k~600k]

Reduce Casting Time of Cold Bolt by 25%. Inflict 25% more damage with Cold Bolt.

 

screenTalonRO013.jpg.b7ffa20628f506c34d9

Now to the Stats :

  • 99 Base DEX
  • 94 Base INT
  • 26 Base AGI

Why I choose AGI instead of VIT? Super Novice has low HP gain on VIT stats so i recommend to get AGI instead since Attention Concentrate *Skill* increase 12% AGI & DEX !!

Leveling to level 60 and Above :

Get Soul Strike 10 At least, then head to GHP or GHC and leveling until u got enough job levels.

Recommended to leveling until Lv75 Base and Lv70 Job.

Now Skill Build for Farming with these gears : The number means amount of skill point input on the skill, Red for must have skill, Blue for recommended amount of skill point that must be input to that skill.

  • Blessing 10 ( Increase STR, INT & DEX )
  • Owl's Eye 10 ( Increase DEX )
  • Attention Concentrade 10 ( Increase AGI & DEX )
  • Steal 10 ( To get extra loot from monsters )
  • Cold Bolt 10 ( Your only offensive skill, Its to match up with the Siroma Card )
  • Agi Up 10 ( Movement Speed and AGI )
  • Teleportation 2 ( For Maneuver purposes )
  • Heal 8 ( For Recovering your HP )
  • Increase Dodge 10 ( Increase FLEE for your survivability )
  • Enlarge Weight Limit 5 ( To Hold more item and loots )
  • Increase Spiritual Power 5 ( Recover SP , this skill helps u a lot since u have low SP pool )
  • Some other skills will be up for skill above to be unlocked, and the remaining points can be use up on skills as your needs.

Farming Spots : Farming Spots are your leveling spots :) 

  • Toy Factory F2 ( Myst Case ) Hunt cakes and chiqita box

Method for how to farm there:

  • Steal *Myst Case*  -> Cold Bolt . Heal yourself if necessary 
  • screenTalonRO253.jpg.2e300f6e6271eb772fcscreenTalonRO255.jpg.7ec2be86e76b8258692screenTalonRO268.jpg.97e4434a23b1a0bfeebscreenTalonRO272.jpg.d476b7045464a84e48d

Total Spending on Gearing Up = Around 3.5m

Allow me to offer my SN.

Jossilyn is a caster-type SN and my very first character in tRO. Being poor initially (and mostly still poor, haha), I use pretty basic stuff but this SN can outfight and out-support even SN's with Kaho. The typical caster-type SN usually goes for 150dex and mobs using Thunderstorm.

Gear:

  • Angel's Kiss with Isilla card
  • INT mid with Incubus card
  • Angelic Protection with Succubus card
  • Hypnotist Staff with 2x Necromancer card
  • Angelic Guard with Teddy Bear card
  • Angel's Reincarnation with Gold Acidus card
  • Novice Armlet with Lude card
  • Novice Armlet with Quve card

Stats:

  • STR=1, AGI=83, VIT=11, INT=99, DEX=45, LUK=1

At 99/99, I have 5954 hp (a bit lower than original guide) and 607 sp (much more than original guide).

More importantly, heals for 2436 hp and has 260 FLEE. Can tank mimics and survive many places. Primary killing spells are firewall and firebolt. In GHC, can kill mobs just as fast as a ME Priest and better than a Wiz. Catch is you need to know vertical Firewall.

I have 4 SNs now (so fun). One variant is similar but dropped Attention Concentrate for a cart. FLEE is still plenty great. Now can mob longer and stay in the field for longer. Cart is to store loot. None of my SNs consume any supplies.

Hope this helps.

      Could someone make a detailed guide to level for new players and oldies alike?
      I just made another char, but since there is no more training grounds(why was it taken away ) I've no idea where to level my from level 22 since the quests end there.
      I made swordsman, but I'd like to see a guide for all classes, focused on new players.(like no gears, though I'm running +4 panty/undie combo and some headgears and a swag scarf lul)
      I think the leveling guides should be updated since the process has been changed.

      First of All, I haven't playing any Ragnarok Online for almost 3 years, but I've returned mainly because I love to experience the game which has really good plot, story-line, hard worker farmer, etc etc. I made this guide because I've study so many newbie guide but when actually read it, its not for newbie people at all, its more likely for who have known the game for more like 1 week ~2 months playing or have friends to tell how or what to do etc. they are good but for newbie its hard to understand and boring, so when I can't really state what it meant or more than my understanding I'll put a link, so others can quickly see the more and most good advance guide there, that's for introduction.
       
      What I am written here is for mostly or Completely Beginner Player or who really don't know what to do like farming zeny, where to hunt, base and job leveling, equipment. So, as a title says "Its for New Player Archer". I am not going to go too much fast pace, and only until level 50. This also from my experience so please don't judges me too seriously, I have been playing solo mostly like 8/10 and I am also a noob who doesn't have any friend(s) 
      In this Talon Ragnarok Online, after you enter the game and done tutorial "DON'T SKIP TUTORIAL" just before changing jobs, After that "PLEASE DO JOB QUEST" for changing Job, because you are new to the world, you don't have friends to help you and you really don't have zeny (you got about 10k zeny in the beginning)to buy equipment, buffs, potion etc needed in the game, so do job quest so you can get Copper Coin which can be used later for Rental Items.
      Job Quest guide can be found here. There you just get Copper Coins for Free. I'll explain where to get equipment, items needed to kill monster, where to get Base and Job Exp
      Then, You are now mostly Level 21~24 Base and Lv.1 Job, from here on you're gonna to be busy. After getting a job the archer Guild gave you bow and arrow, yes for equip, just double click and it'll equip automatically. After that Go to Payon City, Warp>Cities>Payon, the go south ward then in the left side go to the wooden roof house, ta da.... that's where you are gonna get bow or arrow.
      P.S. THIS IS FOR ARCHER Based HUNTER
      Firstly, I really recommend you buy silver arrow which cost 2z get it about 1000 at least, and buy 1~3 Concentration Potion for your attack speed. and go back to the town and warp to Payon Dungeon to kill monsters.
      As for stats, Archer need fast attack speed/dodge as well as good or best hit rate so i suggest putting to like STR-9 (damage and increase weight limit) VIT - 9 (Hp and Def) AGI- 26 and DEX - 20. Go to Payon Dungeon and equip silver arrow, drink concentration potion, now start killing Skeleton for Exp. it'll be 100% hit with Skeleton and will need 2~5 hit to die, also beware of Zombie and Familiars which are aggressive don't let them surround you. Archer got ranged advantages so, you can pick them from afar, one by one. Now, after killing monsters you get Skill Stats/Points which you need to add. I recommend to add Owl's Eye (add Dex)and Vulture's Eye (HIT and Ranged) to max at first and then Add Attention Concentration (% to AGI/DEX) then Double Strafing skill to kill monster, as it name implies it attack double with 1 arrow and used SP and finally AOE attack Arrow Shower with remaining skill points. Altogether 49 points. Platinum skills can be learned at Prontera near Hunting Quests Board Making Arrow (It's a skill which you can make an arrow from materials detail can be found here) and Charge Arrow
      Where to Level with some basic detailed
      Level 21~30 Payon Dungeon 00(Silver Arrow) [Skeleton, Zombie, Familiars and Poporing] and Prontera Culvert, to go to Culvert you need access so here is how to do LINK [Thief Bug, Familiars, Tarou, Thief Bug Egg, Female Thief Bug, Spore] By the Way, keep everything drops.
      Level 31~40 Payon field 09 (Fire Arrow) [Smokie, Bigfoot and Poporing]
      Level 37~45 Bibilian Dungeon 01/02 [Plankton, Vadon, Marina, Kukre and Hydra (Immovable)] (Wind Arrow)
      Level 41~50 A. Payon field 02 [Wolf, Snake, Poporing, Spore (for spore don't use fire)]
                         B. Orc Dungeon 01 [Orc Zombie, Orc Skeleton, Drainliars (Silver Arrow)(They are Aggressive) Steel Chonchon (Stone Arrow or Neutral)] 
                         C. Einbroch Field 02 [Geographer (Aggressive and Immovable) Holden Metaling](Fire Arrow)
       
       
      As for other leveling guide and other most useful guides which I found very good and much more please see below with links
      A. Talon Wiki Leveling Guide here
      B. A Great guide made by Kimchii for farming and leveling can be found here
      C. A Class overview made by kkroto01 here
      D. Mercenary guide by Goodboy here
      As for others I'll update when available
      Now Equipment Guide and Strategy 
      For this, its very hard to make a guide because, you start out with your first character which is an archer, so, i'll try to keep up the necessary materials/ equipment but low cost as possible.
      Firstly, after changing your job as an archer what you get is a bow, i suggest you used it all the way until you get 25~40k zeny to buy new Bow. You can get the following Bows at NPC Vendors
      Composite Bow[3] 2,500z
      Great Bow[2] 10,000z
      Crossbow[2]  17,000z
      Gakkung[1] 42,000z
      Arbalest [1] which gives +2 DEX 48,000z
      As for others if you can find Pantie and Undershirt MDEF+1 which is a combo set which gives AGI+5 and Flee Rate +10, it is best if not forget it, As for Armor or Head gear Use Magnifier (can be buy in NPC Vendors )to Identify the drop equipment and equip, common items which are normally drops are Ribbon +3 MDEF, Hood, Cotton Shirt, Sandals, Skull Ring, Gold Ring. Equip as desire. Most of them gave DEF. Also, you can upgrade it with an Ore, which will give decent DEF and ATK for Weapons, depend the Level of Equipment Ore are Differentiate.
       
      I'll try to update as fast when I'm done some investigation regarding guide.
      Thank you. Btw, I really am not playing or logging my account anymore, wish this help, also got a friend who is completely a newbie who wants to play and ofcourse we can't play at a same time, so with that as based I'am making this guide.

      Hi there, I was building my SN on stat calc and something occoured to me when I activated the aura blade lvl 5 bonus. The skill states, and I precisely quote, that: "Creates a special aura around the weapon that increases damage and IGNORES THE TARGET'S DEF, but not his flee". Well, when I turn the skill effect on, there's a slightly change on my dps but as I turn "sigrum crucis lvl 10" on my dps increases even more... which is really odd since I'm already ignoring 100% of the mobs DEF... Is that a problem with the calculator or a game bug?
      Here is calc build link:
      1st one = NO Sigrum Crucis (WITH Aura Blade)
