A Guide To Tachi/Sorcerer

brought to you by Xiao (IGN:Snowberry)
♥ Introduction ♥
Heya guys, this is Xiao from SugarRush guild :3
So basically, this is my first guide and my first experience on writing guides so any comments will be good for me :3

♥ So, why Tachi? ♥
Well, Tachi is a new class for this content so I excited to try on this class XD
Tachi also offer a good build with eva type, so we can "swoosh-swoosh" our katana without being hit :3


♥ Sorc as ur sub? ♥
We are gonna max our eva so with Grimoire that have a eva stats on it, Eva build would be easier :3
Besides, we got sleep totem that helps us a lot


♥ Pro and Con Being Tachi/Sorc ♥
Pros :
♥ Maxing eva is easy with this build, I don't spend any points on eva to cap it Cool
♥ You can be a range dps if needed
♥ Sleep totem for crowd control

Cons :
♥ No ultimate skill
♥ Not a good dps if compared to Tachi/Wizard
♥ Squishy if got hit


♥ Status Build ♥
♥ Damage : I put all of my points here. Why? Because I want my dps as high as possible
♥ Crit : Put your points here if u want to critical hit a lot, but you'll also a good crit damage too Very Happy
♥ Speed : Put your points here if u want a faster cooldown and faster casting Iaido

♥ HP : Put your points here if u think you are too squishy and need a higher HP Pool
♥ Def : I put all of my points here, so even we got hit, we still "tanky" enough
♥ Eva : Put your points here if u can't cap ur eva yet. But remember, your class buff is add crit and eva. You can always cap eva with buff class and buff food if u need it tho Very Happy


♥ My Envoy Path ♥

Here is my current envoy path at lvl 65
♥ First envoy node that you should get is the "Blades Technique : Tide"
This envoy node will gives you a bunch of crit IF your hit is not crit but the buff will be gone if ur hit crit already. So this is why I didn't put any points on crit
♥ Second envoy node is "Charged Jump"
This envoy gives you Eva Rate 6% and Move Speed 8%
♥ Third envoy node is "Blades Technique : Sacr... *can't see the complete name D:*"
This envoy makes Tachi able to stun from range! woohoooo~
♥ Fourth envoy node is "Blades Technique : Soul"
This envoy makes Tachi a slayer, when opponent's HP 40% or below, they will get debuff Move Speed Reduce by 40% and Def reduce by 20%
♥ Last envoy node is "Infinity"
This envoy boosts Eva Tachi very well, every times we evade an attacks, there is a 40% chance to deal damage to nearby enemies

♥ Eidolon ♥
♥ Kotonoha is your best choices. Why? Because she gives a nice buffs at 3 stars. And also, she gives us buff for absorb HP~
♥ Uzuriel and or Bel Chan is nice if u want a little critical boost Very Happy


♥ Skills Rotation ♥
So basically there is no perfect rotation, so this is my rotation which is I think I can use it good enough. You can skip this part if u already have yours too :3
♥ Note : While facing boss, make sure your Tachi bar is always full so we can use "Blade of Souls Skill" then "Swoosh-Swoosh Katana a.k.a. Original : Katana Flurry"
♥ My BOSS rotation skill : Full Cast Iaido -> Blade of Souls -> Bright Dragon Flash [Jump and Stun enemies] -> Swoosh-Swoosh Katana
♥ My Lure rotation skill : Just run till u gather enough mobs, then cast Sorc's Nightmare Totem then u can do the BOSS rotation skill
♥ Absorbing HP skill : Luckily you got two skills, so use Sudden Thousand Slash and Sorc's Soul Draining Spell in the middle of your rotation. You also have Rejuvenation Mantra for a little help on healing


♥ Skill Masteries ♥

♥ Soaring Flash Dance : Reducing Target Def for a better damage output Smile
♥ Callousness : Adding some Crit and Crit Damage is always nice Smile
♥ Multiple Iaido : Increasing Iaido's Damage
♥ Extreme Speed : Adding Eva and Move Speed! Wohooo~ XD
♥ Break Defense : Another reducing Target Def
♥ Sinewy Body : Convert ur Damage into Defend (in % depends on the color of the mastery)


♥ Gears ♥
♥ Armor Equipment :
♥ For lvl 1 - 49 : You can use anything you want, yeah, anything XD
♥ For lvl 50 - 60 : I'm using full requiem set for more Eva and Murfeo, Malodnak and Talamund Accessory at lvl 55 for 3% Eva and 8% Crit Damage Each Acc~ and for trophy u can use Argus (Green, Yellow, or Orange are good) and Gekasso's Trophy
♥ For lvl 60 : I'm changing my full requiem set into full devourer set

♥ Weapon Equipment :
♥ For lvl 1 - 59 : I'm using green ones, any weapon that boost EVA 5%~
♥ For lvl 60+ : I'm using the craft ones.. Katana's ST Weapon and Sorc's Analisa Weapon.. Why? Because it gives us EVA Boost Smile

♥ Core Choices for Armor and Weapon :
♥ Armor : Personally, I'll use Shadow Core (add 1% DMG and 1% EVA), but you can also get Martial (add 1% crit and 1% EVA) or Imperial for 3% Move Speed
♥ Weapon : Nocturnal (Absorb HP) and Deadly (for 15% crit damage) is the best core but also the expensive core XD. For the cheap core choices you can pick Ghost for additional 2% EVA

♥ Costumes Option and Card :
♥ Headgear : EVA 1% with Enchantment Card Iaido Mastered
♥ Face : DMG 2% with Enchantment Card Blade of Soul
♥ Body : DMG 2% with Enchantment Card Bright Dragon Flash
♥ Back : EVA 1% with Enchantment Card Sudden Thousand Flash
♥ Weapon : CDMG 5% with Enchantment Card Dark Tusk Raid

Don't know how to get the card? Try to look at your Dragon Coin Encyclopedia, its only 3k DC :p


♥ My Current Status [Lvl 65] ♥

♥ FAQ ♥
Any Question will be posted here so we can learn together, so don't afraid, you can ask anything here and I'll try to answer Smile[/b]


♥ "I've tried everything but I still can't capped my EVA.. HELP Sad" ♥
1. Have you use your class buff or food? That should work but u really need a lot of gold.. 1-3 gold for 1 hour is not cheap Smile
2. Have you use your Secret Stones correctly? You should aim EVA 2% with Damage Taken -2% or HP 2% like this

but, if u can't found any SS like that, just aim for the EVA 2% Smile It should help

so is this build more on a PvE or a PvP type?

and instead of "Dark Spear Raid Master" i took up "Black Swallow Mastery" would that make a difference in my output damage since i barely use the spear skill but i use it at pvp.

This guide is for PvE, but it can still do decently in PvP.

Actually, "Enchanment Card: Black Swallow Mastery" is for back ornaments costume, not weapon costume. And no, it doesn't really make any difference since the enchantment cards raise the skill level by 5 levels. It matter more on Advanced Enchantment cards use to enchant an enchantment card. So, it depends on how much you depend on certain skills to deal decent damage

The Black Swallow Mastery envoy node only increase it's damage and AOE range i suppose. while, Dark Spear Raid Mastery envoy node would have more damage and lower cooldown. I suppose it depends on whether you prefer larger AOE range for Black Swallow or lower cooldown for Dark Spear Raid.

EDIT: I think Dark Spear Raid mastery would be better since it's boost the skill's DoT damage. Still, it's up to your choice.

Considering how swift strikes tachi has, you actually consider Callousness over Zeal? Surprised
I think you're better off with Zeal Smile

I also strongly suggest not to go with ST tachi. Sure it has 1k EVA and 25% boss critical damage, but how about you switch to Annalisa weapon instead and get 10% boss damage(which is huge, and even better considering you're already wearing full devourer) and 35% crit damage proc, so you can drop some of those 6% cd SS and go with for example, EVA/HP or EVA/DMG SS instead Smile Just my 2cents

/edit: Then again, it could be very dangerous for you to stack too much boss damage, considering how low your HP currently is.

The guide is not done by me. I'm just sharing some guides i found somewhere. Smile

and yes Zeal would be better in my opinion.

Well, she choose Bereft Tachi because she wants to capped EVA without any stat points on EVA.
