Thank you for this, this is great.
Although, you said that being a Swordman and doing tank doesn’t need to Swasbuckling and hold C, I agreed with that as I can tank and run around and make enough damage to keep agro of mobs and Boss without being hit when doing mercenary mission, but all your recommended builds took Peltasta in their second circle, thus, make me sad and afraid more to play on a party.
I know this is not your fault, neither i bash you and said that you’re wrong, it’s the developer fault, but for me, who took sw-sw-hop-cata-cata-cata-goon this make me (or other who don’t took Peltasta as the second class) insecure to play on party.
I’am level 229 right now, only had a grinding party once, on Tenet Garden at level 45-50, after that just doing solo grinding because nobody wants a Swordman without the infamous “gong” skill and C button.
I hope IMC fix this somehow, someday, maybe they should remove the maximum counts of agroed monsters for all Swordman class, this will not make Peltasta class unnecessary at all, as Swashbuckling just make it easier and it still make them “special” without degrading the other players who didn’t took Peltasta, and by that we Swordmans can be more reliable and became a true “tank” build.
P.S. Will I ever reach level 280 by only depending on Siau mission, daily Dungeon, EXP Card, and solo grinding? it seems that grinding on Storage and beyond, especially Earth Tower, need Swashbuckling?
