I have a 103/27 DB RK with the following stats: 

 

90 Str

90 Vit

35 Int

57 Dex

 

I have the following items: 

+9 TGK EA6

+8 Fafnir Scale

+9 Temp boots dex EA4 RM

+9 Temp boots dex EA4 SOL

+9 Stamina Red Baby Dragon

CVB

+9 Faw EA19

+9 HBP

+10 EDA

+9 Reload Shadow set

+0 Shadow set (im using this instead of reload for the stats) 

S. Coronet

Toy syringe

Temp Ring

ROJ

PDM

 

I tried leveling on Gramps TI but the sustain from CVB is not enough, and I need to waste a lot of potions.

 

How and where to level DB RK effectively/efficiently?

Should I focus on dex?

Hey guys question. 

 

My RK is currently blvl 127 right now. 

 

My stats are 

54 str

90 vit

120 int 

44 dex

 

Should I reset stat and go for 120 dex instead of int? This is for leveling purposes. 

 

Thanks.

Guy, if you are DB Rk and you dont have any costume that decrease fixed cast time, you need reset ur rk and put 120 on dex and use temporal dex, you will see the diference.
Another tip, it is better you dont use the sera coronet, it is increasing your variable cast time. Try to get a mob scarf, is too cheap now, just to get %hp.

You have great equipments, you will see how your griding will be better without fixed cast.

Hello. Thanks for the replies. 

 

Why is 120 dex better than 120 int while still leveling up? Is the increase damage of DB through the SP neglible? 

 

I’ll try to get the mob scarf or dwing, and splash cat hat. But right now i’m using the following equips: 

 

CVB/+8 Stamina Red Baby Dragon 

S. Coronet = will replace this with mob scarf set or dwing or new wave sunglasses 

Toy Syringe 

+8 Fafnir

+9 2 Huntry Fly TGL EA6

+9 Temporal Boots Dex RM EA4 = for the +40 int since i don’t have 529 dex int to make use of cast delay reduction efficiently

Temporal Ring

+12 Devi Etran’s Undershirt / +9 Immune HBP 

Perverse Demon Mask 

+0 Shadow set for stats. 

 

With 120 int, HP increase pots, vip food buffs, Red baby dragon, i can 1db the scaraba mobs in the dungeon. Although admittedly the cast time is slow. 

How would the 120dex build be better? 

Where can I level up? 

 

Also does the splash cat hat provide 20% cast time reduction to all characters? 

 

Thanks!

" Why is 120 dex better than 120 int while still leveling up? "

because your temp dex boots has this effect

~If the users base Dex is 120 or higher,

Reduces the fixed casting time of skills by 0.5 seconds.
Increases long-ranged damage on targets by 5%~.

 

And in case you didn't know, DB has a 0.5 secs FCT (Fixed Cast Time) on top of the 2 secs VCT (Variable Cast Time) at level 10. It is also considered as a range atk and affected by range dmg modifiers so a Menblatt card is recommended for better dmg.

 

Best way to level up is by killing mobs of monsters in the most time efficient way possible along with doing bounties while using BMX3.

Damage isn't all there is to DB, there's also DPS (Damage dealt Per Second). Or in this case, your ability to continuously spam DBs as quickly as possible. 

Unless you're killing mobs in single DB shot, your best course of action would be to increase DPS.

Yet even if you do 1 shot most mobs, if you can't quickly cast another one for those that you didn't hit or are newly spawning/aggroing, then you're not really killing mobs fast enough.

With the right gears, an RK can cast multiple DBs per second. 

 

As mentioned above, DB has a considerable VCT and FCT that you'd want to reduce/eliminate if you want to achieve high DPS.

There's also another issue with ACD (After Cast Delay). DB has a 2 second ACD which can further drag your DPS down. To deal with this, you need to rely on gears that reduce ACD. Looking at your gears, you already have most of what you need to take care of this: +9 Reload Set, +9 Tae Goo Lyeon, +8 Fafnir Scale, Temp dex SoL + Temp Ring combo.
