Guide for shaiya leveling for players
So you decided to be an assassin. Sucks to be you. At least, that's what a
pagan'll tell you. "z0mgwtfbbq i got lvl50 in 3 day lOOOOOL." then you whip out your 44 assassin, kill them in four hits, and smile. how do you get the levels though? patience. lots of patience .
Who should play an assassin?
If you play long hours, you might consider an assassin. AOE chars tend to find maybe one or two good parties a day, whereas a 'sin can solo all day long. You also need patience. lots of patience. If you get on just for a few hours a day, pagan/orc/guard may be a better choice for you. hop on, check for parties, come back later if you can't find one.
What stats to get?
For NM, you want 3/2 str/dex. 3/2 dex/str also works, so i've heard, but i like my power, and i'm sure you will too.
For HM you have more variety.
The most basic, high-damage build is 5/2 str/dex. It works, it's simple, it'll get your target dead. Some people like to add in luck, but the rule with luck is, if you are going to add it, add a lot. Anything under 300 is absolute crap. Anything under 400 is pretty weak. But you have a luck buff, so you can take advantage of that.
The absolute best build you can do is a custom build. That is, not xx per level, but set goals. Say, 100 str, 250 dex, 350 luck with buffs. Lapised correctly, this is a very good build.
If you're UM, here's a build i've been considering (if you're a ranger, don't bother - it won't work for you): 5 str / 2 dex / 2 luck. All the power of the 5/2 HM build plus 100 luck by 50. At level 53, you'll have incantation lvl3, pushing you to about 200 luck. Add in 3 level 5 lapis and you have 260. Get a weapon with good base luck ( i have one with 35 so let's go with that), and you have almost 300. So now, at 53, you have maybe 600-650 damage (no damage lapis added), and a 60% chance to crit. Pretty good, huh? All you furies, try it if you want. But rangers be warned, it will never work for you. i promise
