Yay! Rebel Awakening finally here!!!!!!!
Before I start, I want to tell you guys, I'm sorry that this guide won't include all builds of rebel, because I'm always a bad Crit player/ never play PvP/ and I'm not good (super lazy) at playing with the damage formulas. So I'm still a noob compared with senpais, and I have my own preferences. But I love this class, and I hope this guide can give a few hints to total fresh Rebel players, for more people to discover the fun of Rebellion!
Rebel got great various AoE skills, powerful single target skill, and even nice debuff skills that can help with the party and in WoE.
Got different kinds of bullets and skills' damage can be increased by converters too.
Rebel is a 2nd job class, level ur gunslinger to 99/70, no need rebirth, do the easy job change, good to go!
Rebel is super easy to level with wonderful Desperado (Gunslinger) and Round Trip Skill. Even can be a good killer in bio4 party now.
Since Awakening makes Rebel skill damage at least doubled, and weapons can be bought at vending machine/npc, it is cheap to get enough damage in certain cases. It also gives Rebel the ability to run more intances with less efforts than before.
And MVP killer? yes! Check out senpai Silvianna's awesome gif!
Of course, Rebel also has it's cons:
Apart from the ones on irowiki,
Weight problem is Rebel's big concern as always. Not only the bullets and different guns, the missiles for Dragon Tail skill and the slug bullets (120weight) can easily make you overweight all the time, even with Gym Pass.
Rebel is kind of vulnerable compared with other classes that can equip shields.
Where to buy bullets
I saw many people complain about going to Rebel Guild to buy bullets and make Case. But that's not the only place you can get them.
*Bullets and other rebel comsumables like Traps, Missiles, etc can be bought from Prontera Vending machine (/navi prontera 96/206), just beside the guns vending machines.Spoiler
*And Rockridge Weapon Dealer(located inside tool shop) sells various elemental bullets that are not level required!!! There are also some guns you can buy from him. (Thanks @layupka for reminds)Spoiler
*To make bullet Cases, we can go Izlude Tool Shop and find Bullet Merchant Kenny(/navi izlude_in 74/104), talk to him, make bullet cases just like arrow quiversSpoiler
*The Trading Merchant right up there also sells some bullets and gunsSpoiler
Gunslinger leveling part
Dex is the first and most important stat to add. When reach lvl99, it should be Dex99, Int40+ and Vit50+.
Desperado: perform damage to mobs around the caster between 0 and 10 hits randomly
lvl 1-35 Six Shooter, use normal attack like archers to kill mobs that cant move. meanwhile add all skill points to max Desperado skill
lvl 35-70 Crimson Bolt at lvl35, u should be able to use lvl10 Desperado to AOE mobs
Skill build recommended:
Rebel leveling part
Solo leveling or main killer in party
Though there are many skill trees can be used for leveling, I think Round Trip definitely the best and most efficient one to lvl to max. And which is better is it no longer requires coins to use the skill, so just go spam it like a GX! Well, I would say it's even better than RC, because no need to pull mobs!
Round Trip: deal good damage and push mobs away, will cause additional damage if mobs are knocked at the wall
Rich's Coin: generate 10 coins for other skills' use
Platinum Altar: consume all coins to increase ATK (more coins more ATK), at the same time create a holy barrier similar to Kyrie Eleison, not only for Round Trip. Only can be used with purifying bullets
Fire Rain: also good damage, especially using Probation Gatling Gun, but it's 3X10 range, got to line up the mobs to kill all.
STR: 1-90(bullets are heavy)
AGI: 1+ (not much useful for lvling cuz RT knock mobs back and Platinum Altar gives "Kyrie Eleison" protection) / 80-110 (if u wanna go with Crit or Quick Draw Shot in future)
VIT: 50+ (for survival)
INT: 40-100(many skills consume more SP now, depends on your leech gears/need more int if u r going shotgun build)/120 (if use Seraphim Coronet, also good for shorter casting time for some builds)
DEX: 120 (main stat for damage and hit)/100 (if you plan to use modified str boots)
LUK: 1/33+ (cheaper extra ATK)
lvl 100-175 Probation Gatling Gun good to use if you maxed Gatling Fever Skill
lvl 106-175 Minigun with Archer Skeleton Card or racial cards for high ti and NCT
lvl 120-175 Burning Rose with Archer Skeleton Card or racial cards for high ti and NCT
lvl 140-175 Tempest still good damage even no slot
But for leveling in bio4 parties, Round Trip is highly not recommended for pushing mobs away. Better use Fallen Angel + Desperado (outside ME) or Fire Dance or Dragon Tail or Shattering Storm.
Weapons recommended: Crimson Revolver/Altair & Ares/Probation Revolver with Hydra card(s)
so much fun lvling rebel in nct now:3Spoiler
Now with the rebellion scarf, Shotgun build(Shattering Storm skill) is also very good for lvling, normally I just one shot big bells, but with hawkeye proc lolSpoiler
More skill trees
The skill points of rebel have increased to 59 thanks to awakening, which enables us to try out different guns and skills for more fun.
Crimson Marker: to mark target and reduce target's movement speed, required for Quick Draw Shot/Dragon Tail/God's Hammer to deal damage
Flicker: active Howling Mines or Binding Traps. One coin is required for each perform
Hit Barrel: consume all coins to boost ATK and ASPD, also decrease Fixed Cast Time by 5% for each coin spent (50% at most)
Etenal Chain: allow all guns to use Chain Action, I barely use this
*Pistol or Revolver
Fallen Angel: "Snap" to target location, will double Desperado damage if Desperado skill is performed within 2sec after it. one coin is required to each perform
Fire Dance: 5X5 Aoe damage around caster, additional damage depends on Desperado skill level. Unlike Desperado, it can be used on Magnetic Earth. Coins no longer required to use the skill. Tho it's damage lower than RT, but less cooldown time, more spammable, more useful in instances and mvp.
Weapons recommended: Crimson Revolver/Altair & Ares/Probation Revolver/Black Rose
Tested with racial cards: Probation Revolver little better on fire dance, but less than the other two on desperado
Quick Draw Shot: haven't looked into this, but requires high aspd but not too high, can use Hit Barrel for more damage. According to Silvianna's tests, better control your aspd at 189-190 after Hit Barrel for best proc. Lower or higher aspd will affect the proc chance. Rebellion Scarf is the best accessary for this build.
*Rifle (more of for WoE I think)
Mass Spiral: says good for MvP with high Def, I havent tried. No coins required
Anti-Material Blast: reduce demi-human resistance while deal damage. No coins required
God's Hammer: deal good damage on crimson marked targets and the mobs around them. Coins required to perform, and will consume all coins. No casting time but have 30sec cooldown time
Weapons recommended: Probation Rifle/Finisher
Howling Mine: activated only by Flicker, deals fire damage on target and mobs in range. No coins required
Dragon Tail: launch missiles at all Crimson Marked targets and only the targets. Dragon Tail Missile is required to cast the skill. Have similar damage to God's Hammer but much less cooldown time.
Weapons recommended: Probation Grenade Launcher/Avenger
*Shotgun(endgame build, can be used in WoE)
Shattering Storm: deal damage to target and the mobs around the target. has chance to break their helms. No coins required. Great mob clear skill with the Rebellion Scarf, both in instances or lvling.
very easy to farm Faceworm Nest ＾▼＾Spoiler
Vanishing Buster: deal damage to a single target, meanwhile possible to remove target's buffs and debuffs. No coins required
Slug Shot: powerful endgame single target damage skill. The heaviest bullet: Slug bullet(120weight) is required, but cannot equip. The accuracy of the shot decreases for every cell after the first 3 cells from the target. Long casting time and cooldown time. Can use Hit Barrel for more damage and less casting time. No coins required
Weapons recommended: Death Fire/ Dustfire(30% more dmg with Armor-Piercing Bullet)
Dustfire deals more dmg using Shattering Storm, but for SlugShot, Death Fire and Dustfire not much difference.
All the skills above, can be affected by element converters.
My favorite Skill(no weapon required)
Binding Trap: throw a trap under caster's feet, reduce mobs' movement in the trap. activated by Flicker will deal good damage on all the targets inside the trap. damage is 15% of current HP of the targets + DEX*10 regardless their attributes or flee, and can be doubled by Lex Aeterna, which is OP for high HP MvP. Cooldown time is 10sec, no coins required, one Special Alloy Trap consumed.
in memory of Drake in TLAPD event - 51m hp down in 10s w/o any fancy gears
Rebel in WoE (thx to Icarus05 for the detailed info)
As I said before, to farm ti, it is not necessary to get all best gears, especially awakening doubled our damage.
Robo Eye for ATK and DEX
Mob Scarf + Sunglasses/Glasses
for hp/sp regan: Evil Dragon Armor
for survival: different element armors
With Episode 16.2 updates, the best guns of almost all builds for now are from the Heart Hunter War Base 2 instance drop : 16.2 new items. And all the new guns can be enchanted at Malangdo. All these guns are lvl3 weapons and only need +9 to get full effects.
Besides, the ones being sold at Prontera vending machine are cheaper and still good to use. and dont need high refine either
for dmg: +9 Fallen Angel Wing of shooter(menblatt card) EA3/3/4 or 1/2/4
for dmg: Modified Dex Boots EA4 (Hawkeye is the best for dmg boost 45k->71k, but drains lot of SP as well)/Modified Str Boots EA4 if and only if you are str120/Hero Silverleather Boots /Gray Wing Boots
Fairy Leaf Powder - good for lvling with FAW ea4/2/1 and lower budget dmg
Giant's Protection - good for dmg if str is 120
Blacksmith's Gloves - good for mvp and higher def mobs
Rebellion's Scarf - great dmg boost for QDS build, Shotgun build and other secondary skills, stack
Temporal Ring - great dmg boost with Hawkeye enchant
Imperial Glove - reduce variable casting time, and cast cannot be interrupted
Darklord Essence Concentration3
Malicious Shadow Set
Physical Shadow Set
Kingbird Shadow Set
Spellflow Shadow Set
More to add................
I hope this helps somehow, and senpais please correct me if anything not good
Why spend one point in Gunslinger Mine if isn't pre-req of any skills of rebel? Disarm shouldn't be lv 5?
