- II. Introduction -------------------------------------------------------

The following information found in this guide is mostly based on my
experience in playing in pRO (Philippines) version of Ragnarok Online,
playing in private servers (ya, I know it's illegal and all...)
and reading other FAQs/guides on gamefaqs and some of my theories &
- III. Ragnarok Online ---------------------------------------------------

Ragnarok Online is a Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game
made by Gravity and was inspired by Lee-Myoungin's Manhwa "Ragnarok".
The game is highly addictive due to its many factors (too many to mention)
and lets you interact with many other players in your country or
all over the world.

People would say, "Once you come in... You'll never get out"
Well that's how addictive RO is. (For us gamers)

Also serves as an escape in all RL(Real Life) problems

- IV. Battle - Acolyte: Soldiers of Hope ---------------------------------

Battle-Acolytes are some of the most ignored type of builds. Some people
even don't know how strong Acolytes can be. They only see Acolytes as the
Support Class and just watch battles and does not participate in the
frontline battle. But the Battle-Acolytes can, yes we're selfish of our
abilities because we need them to support ourselves to be true
Battle-Acolytes. Being A Battle-Acolyte is really hard in the beginning
but as soon as you get your stats high you can feel the ease.
I strongly recommend that you make a Battle-Acolyte after you have raised
enough funds to support them. In my case I bought myself a
+5 VVS Wind Swordmace to support my Avatar to level. I sticked to one place
and that is Byalan, that's why I bought a Wind elem. Weapon.

Battle-Priest obviously CAN STAND ALONE in almost all conditions. And
All Battle-Priest only have support spells that can aid himself, So
Suffragium can't be your skill, it's pretty much useless. And if you're
looking for a partymate, then the partymate would be a Battle-Smith,
Adrenaline Rush is the best then followed by their other support skills.

Battle Priest Tips
1. You must have a vast knowledge about elements should have complete set
   of elemental maces. Swordmaces and stunners are most recommended.
2. Always know where you are hunting, bring the right element so your
   hunting will be much easier.
3. Magnificant should and always must be on.
4. Bless the Demon or undead so their STR, DEX and AGI will be reduced. thus
   making life easy.
5. Have lots of anti race/element bucklers so damages done to you will be

This guide will be much diffrent from the Monk Guide that I made. This will
be more informative and in-depth (I think hehe). I will try my best to share
my knowledge of this Battle-Acolyte Class. Because it is very much diffrent
from FS Aco/Priest (Full-Support). Battle-Priest (B.P. drom now) is the No.1
Avatar when it comes to solo-hunting. No partymates, no share, all is yours!

- V. Stats essential for Battle-Acolytes ---------------------------------

This part shows the different stats in Ragnarok. There are 6 stats that
affect the Battle-Acolyte (B.A. from here on) in big ways. Be careful in
fixing your stats since once you put them they are unchangeable.

Strength (STR)============================================================

1)+1 base damage per point for melee weapons.
2)A bonus of (Str/10)^2 total (ie, at 50 Str, 25 points total) for melee
  weapons where Str/10 is rounded down.
3)+1 base damage per 5 points for missile weapons.
4)+30 carrying capacity per point of Base Str (the left hand part of Str only).

One of the most important stat for the B.A. since it affects how
much damage you can dish out. It affects your minimum and maximum damage
too. It also affects your weight capacity so you can carry all that
equipments (Support equips, battle equips and some rations too.)
Since we don't have any offensive skills (Magnum Break or Blast Clip is
the only skill we can have!) high STR will be very important. We will
live on this.

10 STR: +1 Min/Max Damage
20 STR: +4 Min/Max Damage
30 STR: +5 Min/Max Damage
40 STR: +8 Min/Max Damage
50 STR: +10 Min/Max Damage
60 STR: +12 Min/Max Damage
70 STR: +13 Min/Max Damage
80 STR: +15 Min/Max Damage
90 STR: +17 Min/Max Damage
100 STR: +19 Min/Max Damage

The bonus add up in such a way that once you reach that certain amount of
strength the pluses add to your Min/Max damage. It means that when you
have 60 STR you have a +41 Min/Max damage bonus.

This is how it works (STR + Weapon Attack + Bonus + Weapon upgrade)
The equation above is for the ATK in the status screen, masteries don't
show/add up yet to the status screen, you can only see the effect once
ypu attacka monster.

Agility (AGI)=============================================================

1)+1 flee per point.
2)Increased attack speed per point
(complicated, but based on the atk speed of the weapon you are using in the
class you are in).

The partner of Vitality in making a defensive character.
But Agility is more than that, 1 Agi is equivalent to +1 Flee and
also adds to your ASPD. Higher ASPD means Faster Killing time.
Agility is very Vital to B.A.'s and B.P.'s. Changed my PoV.
You don't need to actually "MAX" your AGI out since as Akemi said,
"Flee cannot be your defense." Now I know why Sins sucks.
(Rogue may face this too.)

AGI is the no. 1 stat for hunting since we won't focus much on pvp
only in pvm. Raise AGI but not max it, that's why I said AGI based
High agi because it is your primary def stat but again don't max the stat.

Too much AGI and no VIT can make your avatar frail like onion paper.
Too much VIT and no AGI can make your avatar slow (ASPD wise).
Well this applies to Monk.

Vitality (VIT)============================================================

1)+1% to MaxHP per point.
2)+0.8 weapon damage reduction (defensive) per point.
3)Healing items effect increased by +2% per point.
4)Every 5 full points of VIT increases HP Recovery Power by 1
5)For monsters, there is a bonus to damage reduction of
6)For players, there is a bonus to damage reduction of
  [VIT*0.5] + rnd([VIT*0.3], max([VIT*0.3],[VIT^2/150]-1)).
7)There is a hidden bonus of +1 Int style MDEF per 2 points.
8)Increasing VIT also decreases the chance of being afflicted by the
  negative status affects of Poison, Silence and Stun.

Vital B.P.'s will not be as effective as the Agi ones because of AGI is more
useful in PvM. Not all mosnters are made to be as "damage containable by VIT"
meaning even with elite equipments the damage of the mosnter can't be
endured by having a 99 VIT and overups.

Intelligence (INT)========================================================

1)+1 Base MAtk per point.
2)+1% to MaxSP per point.
3)SP Recovery items effect increased by +2% per point.
4)Every 6 full points of INT increases SP Recovery Power by 1 and
  past 120 INT, every 2 INT gives a bonus to SP Recovery Power of 1.
5)A bonus to MinMAtk of (Int/7)^2 total where (Int/7) is rounded down.
6)A bonus to MaxMatk of (Int/5)^2 total where (Int/5) is rounded down.
7)+1 spell damage reduction (defensive) per point.
8)Increasing INT also decreases the chance of being afflicted by the negative
  status affects of Blind, Sleep and Stone Curse.

Being a B.A., you do not need much INT in your stat. I put about 25 INT in
my build because Priests will have a +5 INT bonus at Jlvl50.
INT will take part in your healing skill, MSP and your SP's regen rate.
I'm against those people who thinks 1 INT is enough for B.A. they rely
too much on support. For me that's TRASH!

Dexterity (DEX)===========================================================

1)+1 to hit per point.
2)Increased attack speed per point.
3)+1 base damage per point for missile weapons.
4)Bonus of (Dex/10)^2 total (ie, at 50 Dex, 25 points total)
  for missile weapons where dex/10 is rounded down.
5)+1 base damage per 5 points for melee weapons.
6)+1 minimum damage per point for melee weapons. If Dex exceeds the
  Atk value of the melee weapon, use the Atk of the melee weapon for
  the min value (ie. max and min values become the same).
7)Reduces spell casting time by a percentage calculated as Dex/1.5
  (ie. 30 Dex = 20% casting time reduction).
8)+0.1% forging and refining rates for Blacksmiths.

This stat raises your accuracy and your maximum/minimum damage.
+1 Dex means +1 Hit same as the Agi-Flee but this stat
counteracts that. The standard DEX is 40. Dex also has a small influence in
ASPD. I recommend that you have 46 DEX then +10 because of blessing
so that's 60 DEX.

Luck (LUK)================================================================
1)+1 base damage per 5 points of Luk for missile and melee weapons.
2)+1 crit chance per 3 points of Luk.
3)+1 "lucky" dodge chance (the right hand part of your flee value)
  per 10 points of Luk.
4)+0.1% forging and refining rates for Blacksmiths per point.
5)Increasing LUK also decreases the chance of being afflicted by any
  negative status affect.

This stat is very useful for those who are going for the Crit B.P.
Luck affects your avatar by:
Crit Chance: every 3 LUK = +1 Critical
Perfect Dodge: Every 10 LUK = +1 Dodge (that's the +x in your flee.)
If you want a real Crit Character, I recommend that you raise your
LUK to 60+ (23+7 the Gloria) and equip a +10 Triple Crit Chain or so...
Crit can be very painful if it came from us /gg.
Normal ATK + Impo + Gloria hehe. Higher STR/ATK and Higher Crit rating has
some influence on your Crit output.

- VI. How to get there ---------------------------------------------------

You start out as a Novice (of course!) I require you to go through the test
in the Midgard Academy and take the hell out of those annoying Fabres.
In the Fabre Forest take the time to level. Level up there until you are
satisfied of your Blvl, then take the exam. Much better if they will
recommend the Acolyte job for you (like what happend to me) there's a
little plus in this, but I prefer that they require you the swordie job so
you can get yourself a red potion for free.

As you step in the world of Midgard try to level up as soon as you can.
Much better if someone will tank you. After you reached the Jlvl 10 of
Novice. Proceed to the Prontera Sanctuary, it's in the 2 o'clock position.
Go inside and proceed to the first room at your right, register and take the
painstaking walk. There are 3 NPC which will be randomly selected for you.

Father Rubalkara: Prontera ->E->N->E (Yoyo Forest, North eastern corner)
Father Yosuke: Prontera W->N->W
(He is staying in an island between two small bridges)
Mother Mathilda: Morroc ->N (She's in a small ruin in the extreme NW corner)

After talking to those NPC you will be saved in their position so you got to
walk again (Bad Luck for you if you're in Morroc and have no Zeny XD)

Congratulations! You're an Acolyte! Now go and level up!

These do not add up like min/max damage. It works like this. Once you reach
that job level that is how much stat bonuses you get. If you are at job
level 42 you get +4 Vitality not all of the other job bonuses added up.

How to change into a Priest: (Weggy's Ultimate Guide)

Another easy change here, simply go to the church in Prontera.  A priest in the
antechamber to the left will first ask you some questions.  Nothing too
difficult here.  After that, you will walk a hall of temptations, as it were.
Simply walk along the path resisting all the temptations put before you.
Finally, you will be put into rooms where undead monsters spawn.  You can
actually just run past them all, though you can kill them if you'd like.  Once
you've done this, you can become a Priest.

Job50 Aco's will skip the 1st test. More in-depth will be added on future

If you want to have a great or an effcient Battle-Priest, please don't be
lazy and try your best to train your Battle-Acolyte to Job50.

These do not add up like min/max damage. It works like this. Once you reach
that job level that is how much stat bonuses you get. If you are at job
level 42 you get +4 Vitality not all of the other job bonuses added up

The Acolyte's Skills are supportive, well Offensive Type of support and
some Defensive Type of supports. But as B.A.'s we will give priority to
those offensive types.

Raise this skill up to level 5 only. This skill only serves as a
pre-requisite to get blessing. Since we will based our Battle-Priest

Aspersio changes your own or an Allies weapon property to Holy.
Changing or removing the weapon will cancel the effect prematurely.
When a second weapon enchanting spell effect
(from Enchant Poison or Aspersio currently) is cast on a target, then it
will replace the first spell effect.

Aspersio can also be used as a weak attack. Using shift-click,
you can target an Undead property or Demon family monster and inflict
40 points of Holy property damage that ignores all defenses.
Against other kinds of monsters, it does no damage, but consumes the
Holy Water and SP anyway.

Etymological Note:
Aspersio is literally means "Sprinkle" in Latin. In the Catholic church,
the sprinkling of water (holy water?) is done with an Aspergillum during a
liturgical service.

Active Skill

Requires: Impositio Manus Level 3, Aqua Benedicta Level 1

[LV] [Skill Duration]  [SP]
1        60 Sec        12
2        90 Sec        14
3       120 Sec        16
4       160 Sec        18
5       190 Sec        20

This skill will help you to be more stronger againts Undead/Demon monsters.
Important skill to have for places like Niffleheim or Glast Heim.

[Benedictio Sanctissimi Sacramenti]=======================================
This skill changes the elemental property of all characters in a 3x3 area
around the targetted tile to Holy1. It also does an amount of Holy damage
equal to half the power of a Heal of the same Skill Level to Undead property
and Demon family monsters in the area of effect. It requires one Priest or
Acolyte in the tile to the left and right of the caster to work.

Etymological Note:
Benedictio Sanctissimi Sacramenti is translated by Gravity as meaning
"Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament". That seems to be right.
A benediction is the invocation of a blessing. The Blessed Sacrament
generally refers to the blessed wine and bread used to signify the blood
and flesh of Jesus (as Jesus himself did it during his Last Supper).
Consuming the Blessed Sacrament during the Communion is supposed to be a
symbolic act that brings you closer to God.

Active Skill

Requires: Aspersio Level 5, Gloria Level 3

[LV]  [Skill Duration]   [SP]
1          40 Sec        20
2          80 Sec        20
3         120 Sec        20
4         160 Sec        20
5         200 Sec        20

Err... Solo right? Ignore this skill, you don't need a partymate!

Gives the Gloria effect to all characters in party near caster.
The Gloria effect adds LUK +30. When a second instance is cast, then it
will replace the first instance on any affected targets.

Etymological Note:
Gloria literally means "Glory" in Latin. A "Gloria in Excelsis" is a
Catholic liturgical hymn having the verse form of the Psalms.
A "Gloria Patri" (literally "Glory be to the father") is a 2 verse liturgical
expression of praise to the Trinity. It seems that the Catholic church
likes to praise God, as well they might.

Active Skill

Requires: Kyrie Eleison Level 4, Magnificat Level 3

[LV] [Skill Level Effect] [SP]
1    LUK +30 for 10 Sec   20
2    LUK +30 for 15 Sec   20
3    LUK +30 for 20 Sec   20
4    LUK +30 for 25 Sec   20
5    LUK +30 for 30 Sec   20

We'll be having mad crits with this skill and as well a good crit cap.
(+10 3x Bloody Chain + Lv.10 D-Bane + Lv.10 Mace Mastery + Aspersio + Gloria +
Impositio Manus = High Crit against Raydrics.) 987 Crit will fly~

[Impositio Manus]=========================================================
Gives the Impositio Manus effect to the target. This effect increases the
targets minimum and maximum weapon ATK (even with bare hand) by 5*Skill Level.
This means the damage is modified by Size and reduced by
DEF (both Armor and VIT).
Can be used on self. You can change weapons at any time during the effect
of this spell without disprupting it. When a second instance is cast on a
target, then it will replace the first instance.

Etymological Note:
Impositio Manus roughly means "A laying on of hands", which has been a
way of giving a blessing for a long time indeed. Impositio is derived from
Impono which means "to put/lay/impose on", while Manus literally means
"Hand" in Latin.

Active Skill

[LV]  [Skill Level Effect]  [SP]
1    +5 Damage Increment    13
2    +10 Damage Increment   16
3    +15 Damage Increment   19
4    +20 Damage Increment   22
5    +25 Damage Increment   25

This skill is just great! Instant ATK bonus! Even though we don't have
attack skill, our normal atk are much stronger, except for blacksmiths.

[Increase SP Recovery]====================================================
A basic Priest skill, and is mastered at lvl 10.
Restores SP every 10 seconds while standing still. Every skill level
increases the amount of SP restoration by 3, the maximum SP of the user
affects on the amount of SP that can be recovered by this skill.

Passive Skill

[LV]  [Value of Recovery]  [Additional Value of Recovery by MAXSP]
1            3                         MAXSP 0.2%
2            6                         MAXSP 0.4%
3            9                         MAXSP 0.6%
4            12                        MAXSP 0.8%
5            15                        MAXSP 1.0%

9            27                        MAXSP 1.8%
10           30                        MAXSP 2.0%

This skill is not that useful due to we don't have that much INT.
So try to avoid this.

[Kyrie Eleison]===========================================================
Creates a Kyrie Eleison effect on the target character. This effect will
block MaxHPofTarget*(10% + 2%*Skill Level) damage or 5 + [Skill Level/2] hits,
whichever is reached first. Damage in excess of the amount blocked will
transfer through and count as a hit of lowered damage. Hits are only assessed
when a blow would normally land and not for every swing by a monster
(despite showing a "Guard" graphic with every swing for the effected player
and a miss for every other player). Multi-attack skills (Blitz Beat for one),
only count one hit for purposes of number of hits and damage blocked.
Any magic attack will do full damage to the affected target, while still
counting against the maximum damage and number of hits of Kyrie Eleison.
Casting Holy Light on someone with this effect will cancel it entirely.
When a second instance is cast on a target, then it will replace the
first instance.

Etymological Note:
Kyrie Eleison comes by way of Middle English, Medieval Latin and Late Latin
from the Greek phrase "Kyrie EleEson" which literally meant "Lord, have mercy".
Seems that the lord is on your side when you use this skill. A Kyrie Eleison
is a short liturgical prayer (Catholics love their liturgies) that begins with
"Lord, have mercy".

Active Skill

Requires: Angelus Level 2

1       5 times      20
2       6 times      20
3       6 times      20
4       7 times      25
5       7 times      25

7       8 times      30
8       9 times      30
9       9 times      30
10     10 times      40

This skill will be very useful for us and will keep us invulnerable for
a limited duration. It is very important to have this skill.

[Lex Aeterna]=============================================================
The target will take double damage from the next real damage source of
any kind. Healing, misses and status effects do not trigger the effect.
Cannot be cast on a Frozen or Stone Cursed target.

Etymological Note:
Lex Aeterna means "Eternal Law" and comes from the Latin word
Lex (literally "Law") and the feminine form of the Latin word "Aeternus"
(literally "Eternal")

Active Skill

Requires: Lex Divina Level 5

[LV] [Skill Level Effect] [SP]
1    2x Damage for 1 Hit  10

Although the skill works great, we Battle-Priest won't benefit much from
this skill and this skill waste SP much. Don't take the skill.

[Lex Divina]==============================================================
This skill has a chance of inflicting the Silence effect on the selected
target. It does not work against Boss monsters.
The chance is equal to 100 - (TargetVIT + TargetLUK/8) + INT/15 %.
The duration of the silence effect is 30*(100-TargetVIT)/100 seconds.
Casting this spell on a target that is already silenced will remove the
previous Silence effect.

Etymological Note:
Lex Divina means "Divine Law" and come from the Latin word
Lex (literally Law) and feminine form of the Latin word
"Divinus" (literally "Divine").

Active Skill

Requires: Level 3 Chain Combo/Raging Quad. Blow and a Spirit Sphere

[LV] [Skill Duration] [SP]

10       60sec        10

Great skill because silencing enemies will absolutely impail them of using
their skills. And in PVP sessions, thi skill will surely work wonders,
an Anit-Monk skill /gg.

[Mace Mastery]============================================================
Increases damage with Maces by 3*Skill Level.
This damage ignores reductions from Armor and Vit Defense, but not from
Elemental and Card modifiers.

Passive Skill

[LV] [Skill Level Effect] [SP]
  1        ATK +3          -

  9        ATK +27         -
10        ATK +30         -

Atlast! A Mastery! be sure to max this one out. This will improve our
mauling effectiveness.

Increases to SP Recovery by 100% (200% total) for all affected party members.
This does not affect the Increased SP Recovery skill. When a second instance
is cast, then it will replace the first instance on any affected targets.

Note: Pre-Juno, Magnificat provided 175% total HP/SP Recovery.

pRO: Status Bar/Chat bar tells that SP recovery is only enabled and no HP

Etymological Note:
Magnificat is a Latin word that means "Magnifies".
The Magnificat is the canticle of the Virgin Mary in Luke 1:46-55.

Active Skill

Requires: Level 3 Investigate/Occult Impaction

[LV][Skill Duration][SP]
  1      30sec       40
  2      45sec       40
  3      60sec       40
  4      75sec       40
  5      90sec       40

This skill do not regenerate the SP/HP to full, it only causes the HP/SP
to recover by 50% much faster. 4sec if standing and 2sec if sitting.
HecK! this skill is still a killer for SP regeneration which we will
obviusly need.

[Magnus Exorcismus]=======================================================
Calls down a Grand Cross in a 9x9 area around the targetted tile.
Any Demon family and Undead property monsters entering the area of the
effect suffer Holy property damage of MAtk*Skill Level per wave.
Waves occur approximately every 3 seconds and each wave appears to hit
Skill Level times. Therefore, there is a certain maximum number of waves
than any one monster can be affected during the duration of the spell
(there will be less waves if the monster enters late or is knocked back
out for any reason).

As it creates an effect on the ground, Magnus Exorcismus cannot stack
with other ground effect skills (eg. Pneuma and Safety Wall).

Etymological Note:
Magnus Exorcismus means "Great Exorcism" and comes from the Latin word
"Magnus" (literally "great, large, much") and some form of "Exorcizare"
(meaning "to bind my oath, adjure", specifically to adjure an evil spirit)

Active Skill

Requires: Safety Wall Level 1, Lex Aeterna Level 1, Turn Undead Level 3

[LV][No. of Hits][SP]
  1       1       40
  2       2       42

Uhh... You're a Battle-Priest right?

Returns a dead character to life with the indicated percentage of HPs restored
(see list below). When used on Undead property monsters, it has a chance
to instantly kill or at least damage in the same way as Turn Undead at the
same level. Consumes 60 SP regardless of the level.

Active Skill

Requires: Status Recovery Level 1, Increased SP Recovery Level 4

[LV][Casting Time][Delay][HP amount when revived]
  1      6sec       0sec            1%

  3      2sec       2sec           30%
  4      0sec       3sec           50%

Have a partymate? I guess not. GO SOLO!

[Safety Wall]=============================================================
Creates a Safety Wall effect in 1 tile. The effect will protect anyone
standing in that Tile from 2+Skill Level physical melee attacks.
A physical attack is an attack from any monster or player with a range of
no more than 3 tiles. The attacks do not have to hit to count against the
total number of hits. Safety Walls cannot be stacked with themselves or
with Pneuma.

Active Skill

Requires: Sanctuary Level 3, Aspersio Level 4

  1   2 times    30
  2   3 times    30
  3   4 times    30
  4   5 times    35
  5   6 times    35
  6   7 times    40
  7   8 times    40
  8   9 times    40
  9   10 times   40
10   11 times   40

Battle-Priest right? So you don't Magnus, ignore this skill.

Creates a 5x5 area sanctuary effect around the targetted tile. Characters
and non-undead/demon monsters within the sanctuary are healed(see amount below)
once a second unless at max HP. Undead Property and Demon Family monsters
take Holy property damage equal to half the sanctuary's heal, rounded down
and are knocked back out of the effect each time.

The maximum number of valid targets is equal to 3+Skill Level.
The spell affecting one player or monster once is counted as 1 target.
If it affects a player or monster more than once, then it will count as a
valid target more than once. If the maximum number of valid targets is
exceeded, the spell will come to an end prematurely. Valid targets are
determined by the following priority:

1/ Player with Current HPs less than Max HPs.
2/ Non-Undead Property/Demon Family monsters with Current HPs less than Max HPs
3/ Undead Property and Demon Family monsters.

Multiple Sanctuaries can be stacked on each other and so long as the maximum
number of valid targets is not exceeded, each will last to their full duration.

Sanctuary is the only means of healing the Emperium in the War of Emperium
battles. While it is a skill that is by no means essential to have in a WoE
priest, having one or more priests with a high level of the skill in a guild
could be very useful

Active Skill

Requires: Heal Level 1

[LV][Skill Duration][Person][HP Recovery][SP]
  1      4sec       4 person   100/1sec   15
  2      7sec       5 person   200/1sec   18

  9      28sec      12 person  777/1sec   39
10      31sec      13 person  777/1sec   42

We go solo right? No need for this skill.

[Slow Poison]=============================================================
Stops damage from a Poison effect and allows you to recover hp/sp normally.
However, does not actually cancel the Poison effect, so the DEF reduction
effect is still a problem.

Active Skill

Ughh.... Have Panacea instead or Cure.

Reduces cast time of the next spell cast by target
(if started within the duration). Has no effect on a spell that is already
being cast (will effect the next spell instead). The casting of a 0 cast
time spell will use up the effect with no benefit. Cannot be cast on self.
When a second instance is cast on a target, then it will replace the first

Etymological Note:
Suffragium literally means "vote, political support" in Medieval Latin.
More recently, suffragium turned into suffrage, which means
(amongst other things) a short intercessory prayer usually in a series.
That is, praying to God on behalf of someone else.

Active Skill

Requires: Impositio Manus Level 2

[LV][Casting Time Decrementt][SP]
  1       -15% 30secs         8
  2       -30% 20secs         8
  3       -45% 10secs         8

We go solo, no need for wizards and we can't use the skill for ourselves.

[Turn Undead]=============================================================
This skill only works on Undead property monsters, although it will cast
against other types of monsters. Has a
[(Skill Level*20)+LUK+INT+BaseLevel+(1-TargetHP/TargetMaxHP)*200]/1000%(max70%)
chance to do holy damage equal to current HP on an Undead property monster.
On failure, an Undead Property monster will take Holy property damage equal
to [Base Level + INT + Skill Level*10].
This spell fails automatically against Boss monsters.

Active Skill

Requires: Lex Divina Level 3, Resurrection Level1

Our mace had answered it all.

- IX. Skill Builds -------------------------------------------------------

[Acolyte Skill Builds]====================================================

TIP: (Regardless of your pre-priest build)
As soon as you change your job I recommend that you get atleast Lv.3 Heal
at once then Lv5 Divine Protection and then Max Blessing and
Increase Agility to your planned level or simply MAX it. This is the way
I raised my acolyte and I find it easy to train this way.

If you're going to make a Battle-Priest, I strongly recommend that you
train to Job50 so you can feel it's 100% effectiveness on solo-hunting.
Again, Battle-Priests is at their maximum efficiency if have it change job
at Job level 50 and is AGI based.

[Ideal Battle-Acolyte Build]----------------------------------------------
This is a Job50 Build.
Has Lv.8 Inc. Agility (+10 AGI) and Warp Portal.

Heal                 Lv.5
Divine Protection    Lv.5
Blessing             Lv.10
Increase Agility     Lv.8
Ruwach               Lv.1
Teleport             Lv.2
Warp Portal          Lv.4
Pneuma               Lv.1
Demon Bane           Lv.10
Angelus              Lv.2
Aqua Benedicta       Lv.1

This skill build is perfect for all pre-requisite for a High Battle-Priest.
Meaning this build can also be used by High Battle-Acolyte to
High Battle-Priest.

Battle-Priest Skill Builds================================================

[My Battle-Priest Skill Build]--------------------------------------------
This skill build has its own special stat build to ensure its 100%
effectiveness in solo-hunting.

Impositio Manus     LV.5
Kyrie Eleison       Lv.10
Magnificant         Lv.5
Aspersio            Lv.5
Gloria              Lv.5
Mace Mastery        Lv.10
Lex Divina          Lv.5


5    Impositio Manus
10    Kyrie Eleison
3    Magnificant
5    Aspersio
5    Gloria
2    Magnificant
10    Mace Mastery

4 Remaining Skill Points.
You could...
MAX Increase Agility
then have Heal to level 7 or have Cure and Status Recovery.

This build was made to maul down Raydrics in the GH Chivalry, I comboed the
build with a 3x Bloody Chain or a 2x Bloody Titan Chain added with all the
buffing skills. 987-1008 Crits on Raydrics. Assuming your STR is at 77+.
With the right weapons, this build can solo hunt almost anywhere in Midgard!

- X. Stat Builds ---------------------------------------------------------

As I mentioned before, I formulated this builds on a calculator. So these
builds are 100% possible. This builds serve only as a reference for you
guys out there.

[THE Starting stats]=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Like any other melee characters you can start with these:


[STATS BUILD-UP]=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

[BASIC BUILDS/COMMON BUILDS]~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
These builds in this section are highly recommended and mostly used by
players in my server and they proved to be good and competitive.

[My Battle Build]---------------------------------------------------------

This build is a Hybrid of STR/AGI with a little of VIT and DEX.
This build is my personal favorite, in fact this Is the one that I am
using right now.

How to Distribute:
10 INT and STR then 20 VIT and 15 DEX and the rest is to AGI,
when you feel that your agi is high enough, raise your STR and
DEX to 20 and then max your AGI out.
After maxing out AGI you may start building the other stats.

[Battle-Priest Final Stats]
Job Bonus at Monk Jlvl 50
STR: 75 +5
AGI: 84 +4
VIT: 25 +5
INT: 25 +5
DEX: 46 +4
LUK: 23 +7

23+7 Luk add with 30 Luk from Gloria (60 total Luk). High enough for
critting, add with Clip of Counters. But never use Crit Chain, the
normal atk damage output is just too weak.

~Suggested Equipments~

Weapon R: +X 3x Carded Chains*, +X Elemental Stunners**
Weapon L: +X Carded Buckler
U. Head: +X STR+/AGI+ Headgear, or anything of your fancy ^_^
M. Head: ??? (Phantom of Opera is strongly recommended.)
L. Head: ??? (Phantom of Opera is strongly recommended.)
Garment: +X Mocking/Immune Muffler
Armor: +X Champion Saint's Robe or STR/AGI+ St.'s Robe
Footwear: +X Witched Shoes (SP Regen is highly prioritized.)
Athletic Belt x2 (if you do not have Clip of flash)
Ring/Clip of Mustle x2
Ring/Clip of Counter x2

* 2 Racial Cards and 1 Size Modifier Card Compounded Chain
  EX: Double Bloody Boned Chain

**Best for leveling, except for Dark Elems due to we will be forced
  to use a Carded Chain and Aspersio but attack damages will be more
  stronger due to the RACE, SIZE and ELEMENT bonuses.

- XI. Possible Equipments ------------------------------------------------

Here are the equipments that can be used by B.A.'s and B.P.'s.
I don't recommend B.P.'s to use Books as weapons.

[11.1 Maces]==============================================================

NOTE: Maces are quite expensive, so be ready and have lots of fund!

Attack: 23
Cost: 120z
Required Lvl: 2
Weapon Lvl: 1

You should save some "Clubs" you pick up as a Novice because this is the
only weapon in the beginning that can be equip by Acolytes. You can also
get one through acquiring the Acolyte recommendation.

Attack : 54
Cost: 1,600z
Required Lvl: 2
Weapon Lvl: 1

Get this if you have some money or if find using a +X Club hard to level.
These maces are the most common mace-type weapon that are forged to become
a elemental mace (VS and VVS Elemental Maces) that are usually prized at
400K+ in pRO Economy (IRIS SERVER).

Attack: 54
Cost: 9,000z
Required Lvl: 14
Weapon Lvl: 2

I recommend that you take a Chain or a Flail rather than this weapon.

Attack: 69
Cost: 16,000z
Required Lvl: 14
Weapon Lvl: 2

if you cannot afford a Chain, this one is a good alternative.

Attack: 84
Cost: 23,000z
Required Lvl: 14
Weapon Lvl: 2

Chains are the best Lv2 weapon for the mace class.

NOTE: a Lv2 Weapon at is max safety level is much stronger compared
to a lv3 weapon that hasn't received any upgrade. It may not be
so obvious but compare the damages, both Min/Max but pay more
attention on Minimum damage.

Chains are the best mace to be carded. The best compounding is as follows:
2 Race Cards and 1 Size Modifier.

Against Raydrics: Double Bloody Titan Chain
For PvP: Double Bloody Boned Chain

This style will is slight stronger than the 3 Race cards combo, see it in the
calc of Dashiva.

[Morning Star]------------------------------------------------------------
Attack: 110
Cost: 41,000z
Required Lvl: 27
Weapon Lvl: 3

I don't recommend you to buy one unless you do not have enough money to buy
a Swordmace in Morroc.

Attack: 130
Cost: 50,000z
Required Lvl: 27
Weapon Lvl: 3

A cheaper mace, this one's the most common elemental lv3 mace.
elemental stunners are way too expensive for others.

Attack: 140
Bonus: 10% Stun Chance
Cost: 60,000z
Required Lvl: 27
Weapon Lvl: 3

The strongest mace sold by NPCs, this is the best weapon to be made as
VS or VVS elemental. Because you can stun the oppnent with the VS damage.

[11.1.1 Exceptional Maces]================================================

Attack: 85
Bonus: Crit + 40% and decreases Def by 1/3
Cost: ???
Required Lvl: 40
Weapon Lvl: 4

Good for AGI and LUK builds of B.A. to B.P. Be sure that you have high
enough flee rate so you can't feel the reduce defense penalty due enemies
will always miss.

[Golden Mace]-------------------------------------------------------------

Good for Undead infested areas, works like a Silver enchanted weapon.

Cost: ??? Dropped by Moonlight Flower

Equipment 101=============================================================

"Practical efficiency is common, and lofty idealism not uncommon;
it is the combination which is necessary, and the combination is rare."
                                      - Theodore Roosevelt   (1858 - 1919)

Here's some reminders to keep in mind in choosing/buying your equipments.

1)Prioritize your builds's need. Don't sacrifice efficiency over

2)Only upgrade your slotted armors if you have an extra one.
  Try to have a +4 Mocking Muffler before attempting to make a
  +10 Mocking Muffler. AND if you're trying to over upgrade keep in mind
  that DON'T COMPOUND CARDS before upgrading it. try to achieve your goal
  before compounding.

3)Try to save things that you will be needing in the future.

4)Be knowledgeable about equips.

5)Elementals are more practical even though they are quite expensive.
  They deal more damage than conventional weapons, this kind of weapons
  are our bread and butter.

- XII. Hunting as a Priest -----------------------------------------------
This part was inspired by Captain FAI's ever great MVP FAQ and is also
one of my favorite in-depth FAQ. Well I'll pattern this part of the guide
to his Hunter MVP guide since it will be almost the same as the Hunter's,
but not how the way Hunters MVP.

Battle-Priest is the best when it comes to hunting since we are into AGI.
With all the buffs (Attack plus buffs.) we can take down mosnters as fast
as hunters can but we don't need any partymates. That's a great plus!
No sharing! They're all yours! We will tackle how we will use our skills
for an effective hunting and weapons for hunting.

What should Battle-Priest do when hunting?
1) Bring enough rations (tons of center potions!).
2) Like the Hunters, have Elite Chains and Elem Stunners/Sword Maces.
3) BUFF yourself and ONLY yourself.
4) MAUL 'em!

[Hunting Skills]==========================================================

- BLESSING must be 10 because +10 in your stat can contribute BIG in your
  damages and character effectiveness.

- INCREASE AGI must be 10 because Increase Agility will also raise your
  ASPD and of course your AGI and Flee rate.

- IMPOSITIO MANUS should always be on everytime you will attack. 'nuff said.

- MAGNIFICANT there should never a moment this skill is not casted on you
  while on the hunt. SP regenaration must be fast!

- GLORIA if going for crit then make sure that you have this casted on you
  all the time when attackin.

- KYRIE ELEISON same as Magnificant, there should never be a moment that
  this skill is not casted on you while in a hunt. This skill will make us
  last a little longer.

- ASPERSIO should be casted on you if the weakness of the monster is HOLY
  and be sure to have a +X 2x Race and 1 Size modifier Carded Chain.
  Combined with Aspersio, you can deal HUGE amount of damage that most people
  won't expect from a support class /gg.

- LEX DIVINA if the monster's skill posts a threat, then silence it, nuff said.

[Elite Hunting Weapons]===================================================
As Captain FAI says:
"Most of the players think that just use 4 of the same cards and put it
in the bow and that's the strongest.
Actually no! That's why this game has Elements and Types. The Elite MVP
Weapon is Race + Size Modifier Card."

We must abuse of buffs, with an elite weapon, we could deal damages
that most people don't expect from a support class. /gg

Chain is the best mace to be carded.

For monster that have an elemental weakness such as:
Fire, Ice, Wind and Earth, then use an Elemental Swordmace/Stunner instead
than a card compounded chain.

- XIV. Card Collection ---------------------------------------------------

Here are the cards that B.A.'s will find useful. They are classified
by their placement. I have removed those "Banned" Cards or the cards
that Gravity has removed from the game, but those who have already have it
are lucky because monsters won't be dropping them anymore. ^_^
Thank you for for this card placement info.

- XV. Leveling Spots -----------------------------------------------------

All the things I will mention here are from my experience as a B.A.
for the 4th time. But this will also depend on your money, equipments,
patience and friends as *Edge says.

1-10: All monsters that in the map that is 1map away from cities.
I recommend that you level up in the Sograt desert and battle those
Drops, Condors, Pickies and Super Pickies.

11-20: Go to the Rocker Fields and battle them or if you're daring you
can always try the Ambernites. If you have yourself a good party or a
friend that is in a high level you can ask him to tank you in the
Byalan island (I did this).

21-30: Try the culverts if you want and also try Payon lv2. I stick to
Byalan by this level until Blevel 50. ^_^ the place is good up to level 2
that is. the aggressiveness is low and you can get yourself to rest.

31-40: Stick to one place. I recommend Byalan or Orc Dungeon.

41-50: By this time you'll feel the hard time leveling days. If you can
try GH or still stick to the Swordie leveling places.
Because usually places that swordies use to level are also good
for BA's. If you have Mocking Muffler try training with Sohees just
offensive bless 'em.

51-60: Haaayy..... This is the semi-boring years I would say. If your AGI
is high enough you could always try the Sohees. (Bonguns are a pain in the
neck!) Again if you have Mocking Muffler you can try out the Nightmares
in St.Abbey, Glast Heim. Just off. Bless Nightmare and Evil Druid, run
away from Joker and bring your self a elem weapon atleast a Very Strong
Elemental weapon.

61-70: You can have your Job Change by these level if your going for the
Jlvl50 Change. Stick to Sohees or Mummies if your daring.

71-80: By this level, Try the GH or Alde Baran Dungeon and by the way...
Your by yourself by now... It's up to you to find yourself a good leveling

81+: 80+!? Why don't join our guild? hehehe ^_^ Try MVP'ng.

Q:Some basic equips for Battle-Priest?
A: (From RO-Universe, Hellsing.Laine)

For the monks, they have two options to choose from – a mace or a fist.

- Higher reusability from acolyte/battle priests
- More damage
- Safer to upgrade. As its possible to get more than 1 chain.
- More suitable for Manual Cast Asura/ Manipulate Spirit Sphere/Psychic Wave
- Better slot for cards

- Pupa: 700 More life. More suitable for those that have low or no vitality.
  (But YOU must have atleast 25+ Vit in your Build!)
- Roda Frog: Adds less Hit Points than both pecopeco/pupa but gives a slight
  SP boost.
- Picky/Thief Bug Card, good for STR/AGI bonus.

- Raydric against hunter/assassin/blacksmith
- Whisper against low dex (Very rare to have low dex in PvP scenarios…)
- Dustiness against wizards. Allows higher survivability against Freeze/JT

- Verit: Very versatile. Adds a total of 8% to HP/SP (Corrected)
- Martyr: Adds a total of 10% HP and 1 agility. (Good only for VITs)
- Sohee: An asura strike gear, very rare to use this as HP is more favored
  than SP. (Great to have due it will have a +3% SP regen bonus)
- Eggyra: For SP regeneration.

- Buckler with Thera Frog -30% from Demi-Human type is non-negotiable.
- Ambernite Card. (Adds defense, good for normal leveling.)
- Other -30% damage cards compoundable on shields.

Dependent on the build that you have chosen. The
masquerade which adds 3% damage against human-types
and the Poo Poo hat which reduces damage by 10% are
some good options. Here some good ones.

- Biretta or any Headgear with Willow card.
- Magician Hat
- Solar God Helm (STR+ is really good!)
- Ghost Bandanna

                         * E-Mail/Contacts Policy -
   Why'd I suddenly summon a E-Mail/Contacts Policy section? Simply to
categorize every mail that I've been receiving from those that are possibly
either a Virus or something bad. I would suggest you follow the following
things below so as to quickly get a reply off the day or two after you
mailed me. Yes! I'm that quick on replying mails as I don't want my Inbox
to be so filled and to make my browser go faster when checking things out.
Anyway here are the list of Do's and Don'ts doing something that is on
either the Do's/Don'ts list will seriously affect the odds of you getting
a reply so I suggest you follow them as simple rules are applied.

Before everything else, please try to read the comments before mailing
because your inquiry maybe already answered. Please read with understanding.

*- E-Mails -*

Do’s and Don’ts
1.  Only send me questions that can't be found on my guide. I will be more
    happy to help you in this case.

2.  Try to be specific in defining something or when stating what had
    So I won't be e-mailing you back for some questions that'll simply
    consume our precious time.


4.  Check the latest version of the guide before sending in any questions,
    chances are that your question might be answered in the newest version of
    the guide.

5.  If I happen to not reply after three or so days than e-mail me again
    nicely and I'll reply ASAP.


7.  Don't be persistent, don't e-mail me the very same question that I've
    already answered.

8.  Don't send me nonsense e-mails like "How much is..." "Can you buy me

9.  Be nice! Don't use bad words in your mail.

10. No Chain Mails!
    Doing anything that isn't allowed will automatically make your address be
    blocked from any future mail you might possibly send.

As noted by Weggy:
- DON'T OPEN E-MAIL ATTACHMENTS... EVER!  Unless you talk to someone who says
  "I'm going to send you a file called blahblah.jpg", never ever open them,
  even if they are from someone you know.  This is the #1 way virii and other
  nasty things are spread.

  Some Virus E-Mails sends by themselves through the people in your
  address book. Just don't open Attachments especially if it is a .zip/.exe
  they are likely to be a virus.
