Recommended Force Blader Stats Build

*Updated* this is a complete revised version of the old guide:

How Much Bonus Does Each Stat Point Gives?

Force Blader
Per Level2.5HP1.5MP
Per StatSTRINTDEX
Attack0.240.10.23
Magic Attack0.10.30.25
Defense0.1250.10.125
Hit Rate0.40.41.75
Defense Rate0.10.11


The table above shows how much stat attributes of a Force Blader rises as one stat point is added on STR/INT/DEX. Informations that we can get from the table:

  • STR only gives a slightly more Attack than DEX, which is not noticeable
  • STR and DEX both give the same amount of Defense
  • DEX gives a lot more Hit Rate, Defense Rate and Magic Attack than STR
  • INT gives the highest Magic Attack but lowest ATT, DEF, and HIT/DEF RATE
  • We can conclude that:
    • DEX gives the most bonus
    • INT gives the least bonus
    • STR does not give as much bonus as DEX

How To Determine My Stats Build?

To determine the best stats build for your character and distribute your stat points accordingly, first you need to know what equipments (armoursets and weapons) you're going to use. As for me, I highly recommend Osmium Armorset over Battleset because to sum it up, full Osmium Armorset will give 24 Defense more than full Osmium Battleset.

Although Terragrace and Mithril set seems to give way more Defense, it's really hard to get them in double slots + crafted. Thus, double slotted + crafted Osmium Armorset, which is easier to obtain, will give more bonus such as HP, Critical Rate and Critical Damage compared to regular Terragrace and Mithril.

For weapons, Blade and Crystal give more Attack than Katana and Orb, so think for yourself.

Hence, the best stats build (as most of the FBs' recommended, including me) is:

  • 283 STR
  • 227 INT
  • all the rest goes to DEX
This is by far the best FB stats build which allows us to wear complete Osmium Armorset/Battleset/Martialset/Terragrace +7, Redos/Osm Blade +7 and Topaz/Lapis Crystal +7 with maximum bonus gain from DEX.

DEX Build Versus STR Build:

This has been an arguement of all the FBs around town for ages already. Still, DEX OWNS any other builds! Here's a comparison between full DEX build and full STR build obtained from http://www.orazur.free.fr/, a really useful and accurate CABAL Character Builder developed by MrThink. Click on the image for full size viewing.



I set both the characters at max level 170, max class rank and max skill ranks trans/trans, then adjust the stats according to +7 equipments requirement. Next, I add all the rest stat points to STR on the first character and DEX on the second character. I did not add in any upgrade skills to provide a better overview and because they don't really affect anything.

Notice that STR build only gives an extra 5 Attack (not noticeable at all in PvP and PvE) over DEX build, while DEX build on the other hand has way, way lot more Hit Rate and Defense Rate than STR build as well as a heck lot higher Magic Attack. Hit/Def Rate greatly affects your performance in PvE, because if you are STR build, you'll be hit by mobs all the time and you'll miss so much more often, which leads you to hell even faster. Now who's the boss? DEX ftw!

Please read my Force Blader Guide for more details

hi thr^^ i new to the game..can i ask how do i add my stats when every time i lvl?

Haze said...

It's easy. For every level up, you'll get 5 stat points. Press C key to bring up character menu and click on the + sign next to the stats (STR, INT and DEX)

Ven said...

I have a qn here.. So for every lvl how much stats i put into str,dex and int?Since we have 5 stat points?What is the ratio?

Haze said...

I can't really tell a standard stat distribution ratio for FBs since for early stages, FBs stats are pretty much balance in all STR, INT and DEX.

My advice is, you should always follow/meet the stat requirement for the next battle style rank up (stated in your character info window) so you can do the rank up quest. Then, follow the stat requirements for the armors/weapons that you want/about to use.

When you reach 278STR, 223INT, you can start pushing all your stats to DEX. Remember, sword skill rank up gives bonus STR and DEX, magic skill rank up gives bonus DEX and INT, so skill ranks are important.

You can always undo stat points by using extraction potions, so no worries.

Ven said...

Ok. thanks alot. So for skills, i lvl sword skills first? Or i have to try to balance both?

Haze said...

Depends... whether you want to have cool sword skills first or magic buffs to strengthen yourself. But I suggest you to balance both.

Anonymous said...

My opinion is:
add STR and INT first until u meet rank up stat requirement, this way u can use better battlesuits and crystals faster

as for skills i think you should get 4 buffs (earth guard, lightning blade, wind movement and aqua) maxed first then pump ur sword skills

Haze said...

Thanks for your opinion, Mr. Anonymous and can you please put your nick name instead of anonymous so readers can recognize you.

Peace.

KenZo said...

Hello. I have a question here.

Why "REST go DEX" , as i thought we should go for STR.

What advantage we get more DEX than STR?

Please advice. Thank you

Haze said...

For FBs, 1 STR adds the same amount of ATTACK and DEFENSE as 1 DEX.

However, 1 DEX adds more HIT/DEF RATE than 1 STR. Look at my previous guide here in the Stats Distribution box. Obviously, DEX gives more advantage over STR.

Anonymous said...

hi .. can i ask u
how can a FB wear armour set ?
i tot armour set only for warrior n FS
n crystal is for wiz n archer

can u pls enlighten me
n tel me how r we FB suppose to do so ?? thanks

Haze said...

Simple... Just look at the any armoursets and crystals then follow the Force Shielder stats.

Anonymous said...

how ! even we meet e requirement for eg "bluestin armourboot"
requirement is str 123 int 98 dex 49
for FS !
n my str int n dex is far ahead more den this requirement
but i still cannot eq it .. cus its only for FS n WARRIOR

jus like shadowTitanium is class specific !

for FB we can only wear OSM BATTLESET
not ARMOUR SET cus e class specific for OSM ARMOUR SET are for FS N WARRIOR isnt it ? same goes got CRYSTAL ?????????

very confuse why wat u say

Haze said...

If you shout and ask 100 person who play CABAL in your server, 100 of them will say you CAN. Just meet either of the stats requirements for a certain item and you CAN equip it (except shadowtitan/terra/shineguard/mystic/mithril). Try looking for high level players in your server and ask them to show you their equips.

You can see most BLADERS wearing ARMOURSETS which is known as Heavy Bladers.

Look at my FB in this screenshot, I'm wearing osmium armourboots and armourgloves. My Force Archer is using osmium Martialset now by following wizards stats.

I bet this is not the first day you play CABAL Online.

steer said...

hi.. im just wondering in the upgrade skill. what skill will i chose for my fb..? thanks...

Haze said...

Vitality Mastery, Offensive Sense, Defensive Sense, Impact Control, Damage Absorb and Sixth Sense. Some FB replace Defensive Sense with Reflex to get more Def Rate, but it all depends on the player. Read my FB Guide to learn more.

bobby said...

are the stat calculator ACCURATE????

Haze said...

Everyone that has used it seems to be very satisfied with the results. However, I can't say it's 100% accurate since your stats can sometimes be affected by certain factors like items and ranks. If you find any errors, you can contact Mr.Think.

Anthony said...

Do you recommend wearing heavy armor? And if so, is that enough strength for +7 Osm armorset? Seems a little low. (This would definitely be for PvP)

Haze said...

I highly recommend using double slotted and/or crafted +7 Osm Armourset, Blade and Crystal for PvP because it gives more bonus. 283str 227int ALLdex fits for all +7 slotted osm/redosm/terragrace/topaz/lapis equips (except mithril) by following Force Shielders stats so don't worry about it.

ericson said...

Hi, can u give me an advice whats d exact stats, for a heavy force blader ^_^ thanks

Haze said...

283str 227int ALLdex is the exact stat for +7 Slotted Osm Armourset, +7 Redos/Osm Blade and Topaz/Lapis Crystal (Heavy FB). This stat can also fit Terragrace and Osm Battleset +7.

logon said...

got questions here.. what is the best to fill the slotted osm set? thank you

Haze said...

Blade: 2 Crit Damage
Crystal: 2 Crit Damage
Helm: 2 Crit Damage
Suit: 2 HP or HP & Sword Amp
Boots: 2 HP or HP & Sword Amp
Gloves: Sword Amp. Other than that doesn't really matter what u put cuz the amount is too small to be noticeable so I recommend you to buy crafted gloves like destruction +16att or guard +16def or some other crafts.

For more details on equipments, refer to my FB Guide.

~Aria said...

okay, so im lv 13 right now, and im following the "target int dex and str things" for my next rank up (20). What I wanted to know though, is don't your stats get messed up if you follow another build in order to equip that crystal, or blade, or whichever item that isn't exclusive to force bladers?

Haze said...

Required stats for class rank ups will stop increasing after you have done lvl 50 rank up quest, so after lvl 50, you can alter your stats whatever you like. Just follow Force Shielders stats for Armourset/Blade/Crystal and you won't mess up your stat points.

I suggest you to follow battleset stats at low levels until you reach G.Master skill ranks or above, then you can start changing to Osm Armourset or just stay for Battlesets and Terragrace.

logon said...

Thanks i appreciate that..
another question is why u recomended blade and crystal? the attack of course quite high but very small compare to katana and orb. katana and orb also provide the higher magic and attack rate.
thx again ^_^

Rider said...

uhm. any suggestions in ep.2? should we stick in your skill and stat guide and the combo guide? or are there any changes that we should take? tnx!

Haze said...

To be honest, there's not much difference between these weapons. Blade and Crystal have more Attack while Katana and Orb have more Magic but the amount is just too small to be considered. So, it all depends on players' liking. As for me, I'll support Blade and Crystal all the way because they look much cooler than katana/orb and FBs use sword skills, so it's better to have more Attack instead of Magic.

Haze said...

To Rider: So far so good. No changes in Stats distribution except if you plan to use mithril equips. Skills and combos also works fine for me in Ep2, but you may change it according to your liking.

logon said...

another questions again ^_^
if i use redosm blade slot, what is the catalyst in order for me to get critical damage inc? i heard they says using osm blade/katana. is that true? coz osm blade/katana cost around 7m-9m alz.. expensive to me

Haze said...

A catalyst must be a slotted item and at minimum requirement, it should be a grade lower than the item you want to upgrade. For example, if you wanna slot a redosmium blade, you'll need an osmium slotted item or higher grade than that (eg. Redos, Mithril) as catalyst and a force core. Then you must pay an upgrade fee of 800k alz or so (depends on the grade of the item). The failure rate is quite high, so don't expect a successful slot at your first attempt.

To get a +10% crit damage slot, you'll need a Great Sword or Daikatana as catalyst. Blade/Katana gives +2 Attack. I suggest you to buy a readily +6/7slotted crit damage blade from other players because it's usually cheaper than upgrading a +0 clean slot item yourself.

Rider said...

thanks.. but do you prefer on using mithril equips? if not what armor should i use? thanks!

Haze said...

My personal favourite is still the complete double slotted (triple slot if extended) + crafted osmium armourset because it gives a much higher critical damage and HP compared to single slot mithril equips, though its defense and defense rate is definitely much lower than mithril set but I enjoy dishing out huge, painful crits. I would consider changing to Mithril only if I can get some Sword Amp Mithril parts.

Hi Sir , i am a Heay Force Blader lvl 120 dual completer and i have set >>> OSM armor Helm +5 + Sowrd Amp / OSM Armor +5 + 100hp / OSM Armor Boots +5 + 100hp and iam thinking of a +5 OSM armor Gloves + sword AMP.. my weapons are +5 Shadow Titanium DLADE + sword AMP and a +5 AQUA crystal + sword AMP ... this is my items what do you think of it??? is it good ? by the way are your FB is pure dex???? i already follow your Recommended stats my FB is PURE dex. TY waiting for your Response

Anonymous said...

hey men ur guide is really helpful but in my position now im starting to think if your recommended stat can handle forcium set? thanks in advance!!!

Haze said...

To }{oTs}{oT:
1)Yes my FB is pure DEX

2)Your set is not bad, but I would say going crit is better than amp on weapons and helm since FBs:
*tend to crit alot
*lightning blade has high crit rate and crit damage
*after lvl 140 rank up quest, you can stack lightning and ice blade together, giving more crit rate and crit dmg
*have a rather low base attack as compared to WA/BL, which is why they are suitable for full amp set and FBs are not.
You should only consider going full sword amp set:
*if only you have sword amp mithril weapons because mithril weapons raise your Attack significantly and
*only if you think your Attack is high enough, like more than or close to 800, otherwise you won't do any good damage from full amp set.

For FB, parts that are suitable for sword amp will be suit, gloves, epaulette and bracelets.

An ideal crit set should be at least Double slotted 20% crit dmg osm/redos/topaz/lapis weapons and 20% crit dmg helm (all parts combined together with lightning blade will give more than 70% crit damage, could be more if the items are crafted deathblow) and wear 2 ring of luck +2 or +1 will deal way much more damage than full amp equipments. Finally, get all these parts to +6/7.

Hence, I suggest you to change your helm to 2 slot crit damage and your weapons to 1/2 slot crit dmg redos/osm blade and topaz/lapis crystal and wear ring of luck.

This is why most FBs say go GO CRIT WHEN YOU CAN CRIT AND THE REST GO AMP/HP or to simplify it, Crit>Amp>HP.

Haze said...

To Mr.Anonymous:
1) I believe what you say as Forcium is what I know as Mithril in my server, so I'll use the term Mithril instead.

2)My recommended stats which are 283str, 227int, rest dex is for +7 osm/redos/terragrace/topaz/lapis set and can only fit for Mithril Katana. If you wanna wear complete Mithril set and Mithril Blade, you'll have to pump quite a lot of STR and INT. Click here for the list of stat requirements for mithril items.

3)I don't recommend Mithril sets because it is really hard to find good ones such as Sword Amp Mithril, craft Crit Damage Mithril etc and they are only available in single slot, which means the bonus mithril set gives will never match crafted double slotted osm/terra set. Plus, good Mithril set are costly and expensive to upgrade.

Anonymous said...

hi haze nice guide you have here very informative!!! i just want to know if what equip set is much stronger the full sword amp or the full Crit damage? and lastly about the mithril set you said its just [1] slot why? do slot extender cant add slots to it?

Haze said...

1) FBs will perform better with Full Crit Damage set than full amp set. You can read my comment to }{oTs}{oT in this page to see why. Just remember for FBs equipments, Crit > Amp > HP.

2) Mithril items only comes in maximum 1 slot, as for now, and to extend it, you'll need Slot Extender Highest, which is, really really rare and hard to find (nearly impossible in most servers except Korea)

hey man! thanx for the advice on the FB build. Now I'm decided that I'm really going to persue building up an FB. I was wondering though, you stats are for the lvl 170 right? in cabal philippines, the lvl cap is set @ 150, so my question is what will be my total stats then for this lvl? Thanx much for all your help on this.

Haze said...

Still the same, 283 str, 227 int, rest dex.

Anonymous said...

dex??is this effective on pvp?? what combo skills do u prefer sir ^^

Haze said...

Yes, dex is the best stat for FB in both PvP and PvE. My combo is Force Assault>Force Slash>Assassinate>Force Assault>Force Slash>Crystal/Dance of Ruin>Infernal Impact (if opponent is not dead yet, add another Assassinate)

najdorf said...

haze how to craft a deathblow blade pls tell me how to craft those weapon... pls!!!

Haze said...

First of all, when you reach lvl 50, go see the core alchemist at Port Lux to get your C.A. Transmuter and pick the Sword type transmuter. Then you can start crafting in both basic and professional crafts by opening up your character stats window.

By choosing Sword type transmuter, you can craft G.Swords, Daikatanas, Katanas and Blades in Professional Crafts. So now that you wanna craft a Deathblow Blade, choose the blade category and item class (shadowsteel, bluestin, titanium, shadowtitanium, osmium, etc) and find for blade of Deathblow. Look at the materials required to craft a deathblow blade, collect all of them and you can now produce 1 deathblow blade with that amount of materials you have.

You need to level up your professional craft in order to craft the next class of item, e.g. you need to reach lvl 3 pro craft in Blade category to craft titanium blades and to increase your craft experience, all you have to do is to keep crafting. When you reach 100% for each level, you need to craft a "proof" item in order to get to the next level, if you fail it, you must retry until you successfully craft one and only then you'll be on the next lvl.


Crafting is pretty simple actually. The difficult part is when you need those materials that are quite hard to find sometimes and might cost you quite an amount of alz if you buy them from other players.

Still don't understand? Read this crafting guide

Force Blader said...

hello if the stat require shoud be
str 283 int 227 dex rest of the points
osm+6...how about mithril!!!
required for mithril is
str277 int 277 dex rest of the points...

Anonymous said...

Hi. This guide is very helpful. That stat point chart you have up there is really helpful. I was wondering if there are charts like that available for other characters that I can show to my friends.

Haze said...

No offense, but I've stated this many times already in my comments. First of all, 283str 227int All dex is for slotted osmium armourset/battleset/terragrace/blade +7 and why I don't recommend Mithril is because:
the requirements for
Slotted Mithril Battlesuit (FB) +7: 309str 309int 232dex
Slotted Mithril Blade (FS) +7: 340str 272int 136dex
Slotted Mithril Crystal (FS) +7: 272str 272int 204dex
Slotted Mithril Katana (FB) +7:
272str 204int 272dex

Now, if you want to use Mithrils, you'll have to sacrifice a lot of DEX and invest them on INT, which obviously doesn't give as much bonus (especially attack, att rate and def rate) as DEX.

Unless if you have a supercool Mithril item like slotted with Sword Amp 7% and lots of alz to get that item and to upgrade it with highest upgrade cores to +6 or above and maybe extend the slot with slot extender highest, you'll be better off using either terragrace or osm armour that are double slotted and crafted, which will definitely give much more Crit Damage than Mithril.

Mithrils' might be good for PvE but when it comes to PvP, I don't think so.

Click here to view it, Mr.Anonymous. But I don't guarantee a 100% accuracy.

Xplozione(FB) said...

WAT IS THE MOST POWERFUL CHARACTER ??????????






PLEAZE ANSWER TY....

Haze said...

I've already posted an answer for this question in the comments of my FB guide page:
"All the character classes are pretty much the same, none of the classes are harder or stronger than the others, it just depends on how well you play them. Just play it the way you want it to be and when you reach higher lvls, you'll start to learn from your experience, which is one thing that no one can teach you other than yourself."

But if you want me to vote for the best character, I'll say its FB for sure!

good day mr haze, im form the philippines but im living here in japan, and im playing cabal online, i just want to ask if you know any kind of english patch for the game?i use to play cabal online jp so everything is in japanese. so i cant enjoy the game that much. hope you can help me with this. and thanks for the guide, im an FB fanatic!

Haze said...

I'm not sure about this since I'm playing in the EURO server and the JP server always gets the latest updates much earlier than the other servers. But I remember there used to be an ENG patch for CABAL JP but that's more than one year ago and it won't work for the latest version. Plus, after CABAL JP started to block players from foreign countries to play in the Jap server, the English patch is discontinued.

You can try copy some of the english servers (CABAL SEA/EURO/PH) files (in the data folder but I forgot which files to copy) and paste/replace it on the data folder of CABAL JP, but I don't guarantee this will work because Jap server has different patches than the other servers.

Destiny said...

Hi, may I ask if the FB is recommended to learn crafting: Armor
Since we will be getting armor set, or should we go battle/jewel?

Please advice =)

Haze said...

In my opinion, all the crafts are useful because when you're able to craft osmiums and above or high level accessories, you can surely sell them at high price. My point here is even if you picked the crafting that doesn't suit you, you can still sell it to the others to make money if you're craft lvl is high. Just my 2 cents, armorsets can always be sold at higher price compare to battle and martial.

As for me, I like artifact crafting because the materials are easier to get, buy and sell compare to other crafts, although artifact crafting costs more.

Destiny said...

Thank you for your 2 cents... Meanwhile I will think about what I really want to craft. Most prob might be Armor/Artifact

Anonymous said...

hi, hello haze, im new,, im DJMRAC

here is my question.

if u given a good items what could it be?

Haze said...

If you're asking for a list of items I recommend for FB, then read my FB guide. If you asking me for the best items I can ever wish for, it's probably, a full mithril FB set +7 with triple slots sword amp and crit damage and a RW3 astral bike +7, but that's totally impossible.

Anonymous said...

i like your stat build more on DEX! my char was a victim of "random banning" due to the excessive number of bots here in the phil, im starting all over again, i recommend grinding "punching" at low level monsters to lvl up your skills faster

I feel sorry for you, unfortunately this happens to most of the free MMOs out there too, not only CABAL, there's nothing we can do, hackers are everywhere. Just stay cool and have fun.

Anonymous said...

good guide and all but when i found this guide i already have more int than the guide says. is there anyway that i can reset my points?

Haze said...

INT Extraction Potions, buy them from people, or get them from mobs (dropped by mostly all high level mobs).

Wanda said...

Hi Haze,
Is it Ok if i use OSM battleset crafted?
bcoz ARMORset is really very expensive in
CABAL PH.. a lot are really very OP when
selling....

can i also wanted to know the perfect
craft of WILL +?HP DB +? CRIT....
thanks...

Haze said...

Yes, it's ok to use battle.
Craft bonus varies according to the grade of item (titanium, osmium, mystic, etc), you might need to take a look at this craft results guide for complete info. They just publish for martialset craft since armour, battle and martial are the same.

hi sir..im playing at cabal PH..im deathsentence and vinomn..this is my 2 char..FB and warrior..i read all of the comments and your answer..im vry thankful cuz u give me an idea to build my FB...i use terra set..what should i use?osm armorset?ty..

Haze said...

It's entirely up to you. Terra obviously have more def/def rate (suitable for PvE) but it's hard to obtain crafted or double slotted terra, thus you won't deal as much crit damage as Osm sets (armour/battle) if you only have 1 slot terra. Many people craft osm sets and they can be easily obtained double slotted, so they are much cheaper and you'll gain more bonus HP/Amp/Crit from the crafts/slots

Anonymous said...

hey haze. im plang cabal PH and im not used for my sets. what set is good when ur 70+? im currently using +6/4 adept armorsets? what acce can b used in PVP? thx

Anonymous said...

Nice ^_^ thnx ^_^

Haze said...

I suggest you wear your adept set until you reach at least a trans rank, then only you switch to PvP osmium armour/battle set which fully focus on crit damage, amp and hp. Suggested PvP acc. are amulet of pain/battler and 2x ring of luck + 1/2, or 1 rol, 1 crit ring.

cyber said...

hey haze...what class rank if you are LvL 140????.........okie pala stats moh ^^ thankz

Haze said...

lvl 140, class rank 15 once you finish the rank up quest. Reward Class Rank 15: 2 Identical series of Buffs can be used and overlapped. Buff Quantity Limit increased to 8 and of course boost max hp and character attributes.

good morning haze its me again,its been a long time, im just wondering if i can play cabal in euro or other countries while im here in japan? i just download a game client in the philippines hoping i can play but i have a hard time connecting to the server ph. and it always fail. it takes me an hour just to download the client and it make no sense. thanks and more power. by the way thanks for the guide and more power.

Haze said...

Rolando, I wouldn't recommend you to play on servers of other regions even if you can bypass their IP block with/without proxy servers, unless you have a high speed one because you will get disconnected frequently and lag most of the time, so you can't really enjoy the game under those conditions. It's better for you to just stay on your local server if you expect to play for a long period.

Anonymous said...

haze...


they say that you can only use upto 50% crit rate...
is that true?
or you can have more than that?


it's me
Jobz...

Haze said...

To Anonymous: The recommended stat, 283STR 227INT and all DEX is for slotted osm/redos blade +7 and slotted topaz/lapis crystal +7. So I guess there won't be a problem for you to use blade with that stat unless you are going for mithril blade. Try to add more STR and INT until you reach 283STR 227INT if you want to use blade and armourset earlier. Then you can start pumping all your stats to DEX.

To Jobz: Yes, the crit rate limit is 50%. To extend the limit, you'll have to wear +max crit rate items and of course it's useful only when your current crit rate exceeds 50%.

Sorry for the late reply, was kinda busy lately.

logon said...

hi again, need to know whats the minimum critical damage and critical rate for fb? at the moment my cd is +128% and cr +48%

logon said...

hello haze,
need to confirm whether is it true that FB got
20% CD and 5% CR without any equipments?

CGNDragon said...

Which is better to use in slots HP steal or Sword amps.Sword Amps are weak in FB right? But Deathblow deals more damage than a sword amp set of Warriors.So what in FB is better HP steal or Sword Amps?...................Please Answer.............................

Haze said...

Again, I must apologize to all my readers for not replying your comments lately because I'm really busy with my work during these recent months.

To Anonymous: Yes, it's really difficult to PvP against WA of equal or higher level without using debuffs since they have the best stats for PvP and they get much stronger in higher levels. You'll need a really good crit + amp set and the luck to crit most of your hits to win.

To Carlo: It's really up to you, osm armourset and osm battleset doesn't make much difference. Armour has more DEF than battle, which is more suitable for PvP but it has less DEF RATE. It will be better if you can pickup double slotted terragrace set or crafted Deathblow/Amp osm/terra.

To Rolando: As what I've mentioned to Carlo, if you switch to armourset you will gain 24 DEF more than battleset, which will be better for PvP. It's even better if you can get double slotted terra or crafted Deathblow/Amp osm/terra.

To Logon: All classes have basic crit damage of 20% and crit rate of 5%, without counting in buffs and equipment.

To CGNDragon: HP Steal if you are active in PvE, Deathblow + Amp if you PvP most of the time.

thanks again for having time. hope you can still manage your time and more power.

6 upgrade slots at Trans rank:
*Vitality Mastery
*Offensive Sense
*Defensive Sense (you may replace Defensive Sense with Reflex to get more Def Rate for PvE)
*Impact Control
*Damage Absorb
*Sixth Sense

Mana upgrade is not necessary for every class, some people just use it against Mana Freeze. Change Force is also not necessary, you can rank up your sword skill by using fast, low level skills like impact stab, flash draw, force slash, assault, rising shot.

hi haze been busy lately? anyway just want to know if you upgrade a 2 slotted item and the other slot thus have a 50% chance. can still upgrade the same item to get other slot be fill? and is't advisable to used a non (+)item as catalyst in slotted (+)items? for eg. osm armor suit +2 as item and a slotted ordinary osm boot/gloves/osm suit? thanks in advance and keep it.

Yo, awesome guide. see as how I'm new to cabal I'm wondering how to place stat points per level.

nawa said...

hello . nice guide . . .

i have a question about the g.mas and completer skill of FB .

if we raise their level , could it raise the number of hits ?

thanks .

SeKiGeHaRa said...

Thanks Haze for the guide it helped a lot

At first my stats are more of my experiment it did well but I wasn't satisfied so when I came across your guide I gave it a try (including your combo ^^)

It did pretty good with my FB

I play Cabal Ph where most players like to PVE without debuffs and fade

At first I thought its impossible to win for an FB with such kind of PVE

But after I read thoroughly the skill descriptions I realized I was wrong

Most of the effects of FB skills are pretty good for PVE (like HP down, attack rate decrease, def -, attack -) thats why your combo rocks. some of the skills may have a low base damage but they could be cast really fast (which is very important in PVE) with these skills, a good def rate and attack rate, and crit>amp>hp set (which I'm still in the process of obtaining)my FB rocks and thanks to you for the guide

By the way I'm still having my old Upgrade skills which are:
Vitality Master (10)
Reflex (9)
Defensive Sense (9)
Sixth Sense (3)
Damage Absorb (3)
Impact Control (3)
Do you think these upgrade skills are good for an FB or can you suggest a better set of Upgrade Skills, thanks

I'm a level 140 dual trans

Anonymous said...

hmmm i cant seem to see my previous comments here, oh well kinda hard for me to go thru this site now, but anyways FB really got better in terms of PVE with the new BM2, and i dunno if haze remember(i dont think he will) but i was giving some advice here before on war and i go by the name Sazuzaki from cabal NA, and guess what, ive been the FB bringer in cabal NA for almost 3months now XD (1week more til 3 weeks straight) before i suggested to go atleast 1 extort/life absorb and go vamp earrings since it helps a bit on ur HP, right now when i moved to T3 war(150-170) that wouldnt work, since all players dmg is so high you cant possibly regen it by vamp anymore, that tactic would work in low lvl war, my strategy for gears right now is go full dmg (not def) that means even my earrings is earring of bless+1 (gives me 3-4 attack i think) since every bit of attack counts in this high lvl war, what i only hate about FB BM2 is its not as usefull in war, since u can get knocked down or knocked back and even stunned every single time on it and u cant combo neither root(execarate) an enemy with BM2 on it, even tho the dmg of my BM2 does gread dmg against proc (2nd hit of normall attack is about 3.6k if crit against a proc) but this would only be good if u dont get knocked back/down or stunned which the case is you would... i only use it against legacy guardians and once a enemy comes i switch weapons to cancle BM2 and combo my way out XD. 1 tip tho on people in T3 war, reserve ur mass execaration and use it against enemy bringers.. coz once u execarate them. they are useless and can easily be killed. ^_^

Nice guide there, Haze.

I wanted to ask a q, though.
I'm still a newbie.
Can u plis tell me what are the greatest weaps n armors in the game? Also the stats req.
Is your stat build already involve the stats req for the greates weaps n armors?

Thx a lot for the answer in advance

MyzticBoy said...

Thanks For The Advice>>^_~
What Do You Think is BETTER??
CDI or CRI??
I hope You Can Answer That Thanks
Ill Wait For Your Answer

Cilv said...

Hey, Haze I have a question about the stat build. As you said Osm +7 is better as it is cheaper and easier to acquire. So the stats needed would be 283 STR, 227 INT and the rest to DEX. But what if you acquire the Mithril +7. Its a big IF, but I'm just curious. The basic stats for Mithril +0 is 277 STR, 277 INT, and 208 DEX for full set. I'm guessing you know the stats, but just wanted to post it for easy reference.

Anonymous said...

I disagree if you go for the 305,305,654 stat build you may get lower bases but the equipment more then makes up for it giving you a high advantage.

Marlon said...

Ok here is my question
Why Should we LEVEL DEX and get Magic-Atk ONLY?
Wen we could Level STR and get ATK AND HP* ?

Armor isntted BattleSuit?Wouldn't dat be a bit stupid specialy wen STR gives u FAR MORE HP to couver the lack of 28def?
(Specialy couse no osmium suit,now, is "wearable by all class's anymore)

PS: Even if DEX gives u Def/Atk-Rate, thats no good for nothing in pvp... Combo wreaks it all!

this is all wrong. haze is an idot. the correct build for force blader is pure int. you must be PURE INT TO BE STRONG AND POWERFULL.
