This is a guide on how to play a solo (arena) samurai.
Contents
1. Info about character
2. How to Stat
3. What to use
3a. Level 1-10
3b. Level 10-25
3c. Level 25-40
3d. Level 40-71+
4. Summary



~ The Samurai ~
Gear he can use:
Armour: All
Weapons: Daggers and swords


Starting Stats:
Strength:45
Dexterity:50
Intelligence:10
Vitality:50

Stats You Should Aim To Get:
Strength: As much as possible
Intelligence: 10
Dexterity: 120 ~
Vitality: 50

Try to keep your dex 20~ higher than your str at lower lvls, without gear


What To Use

Level 1 to 10

Weapon: Lvl 1 Dagger 40+ ee
Armour: Heavy (bonus) LPK(20+), LPA, Max Life, Dual Stat (dex + str)
Charm: LPK (20+), Max Life, Dual Stat (dex + str)
Note: Words in bold are musts. If you have dual stats on armour have LPK on charm and vice versa.. Also upgrade your gear at level 5 for faster climb ( weapon at least 60+ee)


Level 10-25

You should now start thinking of getting higher ee weapons + LPA/LS/Max Life/Ee ( main stats)
Key: combination of colours = combo of items that work well together.

Weapon: Level 10 Dagger 70+ee
Armour: Heavy (bonus)ee, Max Life, Str/Dex
Charm: LPA/LS, Dex/Str/LPK, LPK (50+)
Note: upgrade this every 5 lvls with higher mods.


Level 25-40

Focus mainly on Stats/LPA now, you should now have rougly about 60~ str and 70~ dex (no gear) so use str gear ( dual stat if possible) and keep statting dex

Weapon: Level 25 Dagger 80ee, Lvl 30 Dagger 85ee, Level 35 Dagger 90ee, Level 40 Dagger 100ee
Armour: Str (25+), LPA/LS, Max Life, ee, LPK
Charm: As Much Str as you can get ( you can sacrifice some for LS/LPA ofc.), Dex/Dual Stat
Note: Upgrade as you level up as usual.


Level 40-71+


Focus mainly on LS and high ee weapons.
You should now aim to get 120dex (with gear) and 100+ str (with gear) at level 40+


Weapon: Level 40 Dagger: 100+ee, Level 50 Dagger 100+ee ( Higher if you want it to be your MQ weapon), Level 55 Dagger 130+ee
Armour: Heavy - Life Steal (6+), ee (amazing mod if you have a heavy armour with 50(+)ee + 6(+) LS), Dex/Str (expensive)
Charm: As much str as possible (45+), You can also sacrifice some Str for LS ofc.
Note: you should be aiming to well now, to well LS is a MUST + a good heal charm helps


This is based on my style of playing, if you dont like it dont use it. Evryone has different opinions.

This is a rough guide for Newcomers/Veterans
Thank you for reading it, hope you enjoyed and learnt something wink.gif

swell guide but only on eproblem those listed items r extremly hard to get now even if u did have fg no items like that just appear on the market place and i believe alot of those dual stated items that should b used are unspawnable awesoem gear to use but really hard to find someone to part with it.

This obviously doesent have to be followed dot by dot. You dont have to have that exact ammount of ee or more to be able to climb reasonably fast. That layout was just to help you to do 1-71 no regen maybe (or at least a good solo climb experience).

And with some time and FG, you should be able to get these items - remnber to play LS succesfully you have to invest alot of time and FG into it.
