A barbarian is one of the two untamed classes.

The barbarian is the tank of the game. This means that they hold the attention of monsters/bosses, and receive the majority of any damage inflicted to a squad.

Physical Defense HIGH
Physical Attack MODERATE
Magical Defense LOW
Magical Attack NONE
Health HIGH
Mana LOW

Also, when in humanoid form, it is one of the slowest classes. But in tiger form, it is the fastest.

Barbarian Build[edit | edit source]

The barbarian uses a handful of weapons.

  • These weapons are:
    • Poleaxe
    • Polehammer
    • Dual Axes
    • Dual Hammers
      • If you choose a weapon that is not one of these, your skills will be very limited, and most will not work.

Also, the best armor choice for this class is heavy armor.

The best way to build up your barbarian is by allocating points to follow your desired path.

      • (Heavy Armor, Hammer/Axe)

Barbarians focus on Strength and Vitality above all else. Do not allocate any attribute points into magic. This will become a wasted point. Barbarians have no use for magic.

My suggested build is: For every 10 points / 2 levels

  • Strength: 5 points
  • Vitality: 3-4 points
  • Dexterity: 1-2 points
  • Magic: no points

It is always wise to look at what the requirements for your weapons and armor are in advance to see a basic idea of where to allocate.

Put points into strength and dexterity to meet the requirements, add anything else you want into strength and vitality. Because barbarians amount to little without health or defense.

Grinding[edit | edit source]

As we all know, barbarians are physical players. The best monster for them to grind on are ones with close range, physical attacks.

Try to avoid magical monsters when grinding because you will spend a far greater amount of time meditating for HP than if you fought physical.

If you know of any good monsters, feel free to add them in.

Grinding usually starts from around 40. Quests can only get you so much EXP. At some point you will find that you need to kill stuff for that remaining EXP. That my friend, is grinding.
