    Everything has its beginnings, but it doesn't start at one. It starts long before that... The world is born From zero. The moment zero becomes one is the moment the world springs to life. One becomes 2. 2 becomes 10. 10 becomes 100. taking it all back to one solves nothing. so long as zero remains... One.. Will eventually grow to 100 again.

    It would be better not to though. Especially if you decide to change weapons at endgame.

    Source code is available on pastebin.

    The nature of the seeker

    Discussion about seeker roles and play style.

    Seekers are melee characters that wear heavy armor. They put themselves in harm's way and also use buffs and debuffs to support the squad, especially the casters. They mostly deal physical damage but also have skills that inflict magical damage.

    Their roles include support, damage dealing, AOE and secondary tank.

    Strengths and weaknesses

    This section will be speculative until more information and experience is available.

    PROS

    ⊲ Good survivability.
    ⊲ Rewards focus and reflexes.
    ⊲ Enhances the squad's performance (especially of casters).
    ⊲ Great visual effects.

    CONS

    ⊲ Not the highest DPS.
    ⊲ May not be able to hold aggro for tanking.

    Builds

    Discussion about armor, weapons and stats.

    Seeker Builds Spreadsheet

    Heavy armor build for survivability

    The standard seeker wears heavy armor and wields a sword or blade. This build requires 5 STR and 3 DEX every 2 levels. The remaining stat points can be invested in VIT for survivability until endgame gear is available, at which point they can be transferred to STR for damage.

    On even levels add 3 STR, 2 DEX.
    On odd levels add 2 STR, 1 DEX, 2 VIT.

    Seekers get 15 HP for each VIT point.

    Heavy armor build for damage dealing

    On this build no or very little VIT would be added (e.g. capped at 20 VIT).

    On even levels add 3 STR, 2 DEX.
    On odd levels add 4 STR, 1 DEX.

    This build would do extra damage at AOEs but would require refining the equipment for extra HP.

    Light armor build

    More information required.

    Other proposed builds

    ⊲ A slightly altered sword bm build - something like capping vit at 50 then 3 str 2 dex every level.

    ⊲ A LA variant is also possible post 74, when the defense level buff maxes and you have that to make up for your lost phys defense.

    ⊲ 5 str 5 dex: kinda squishy with high accuracy and crit

    ⊲ 5 str 4 dex 1 vit: less squishy with good crit and high accuracy

    ⊲ 5 str 3 dex 2 vit (my build): good HP, ok crit, good accuracy

    ⊲ 4 str 4 dex 2 vit: good HP, light armor, good crit, high accuracy

    ⊲ 4 str 5 dex 1 vit: decent HP, light armor, great crit, great accuracy

    ⊲ 4 str 6 dex: very squishy, low HP, light armor, even greater crit, awesome accuracy but kinda dumb

    Description of skills and recommendations on priorities.

    Tactics

    AOE

    Seeker's zhen should have higher damage output at lvl 90+ thanks to higher crit rate and usage of TT90 gold swords which have zerk.

    Sage and Demon

    Review of strength/weaknesses and play styles of sage and demon choices.

    Instance running

    Specific advices for roles in BHs, TT, FC and higher level instances.

    PVP

    On 1v1 PVP, the lack of solid DPS, no reliable source of stuns, and the lack of any anti-stun put them at a very difficult position against 5.0 melee fighters.

    Territory Wars

    Gemini Slash and heavy armor make seekers very dangerous opponents in TW. They can deal heavy AOE damage at no chi cost with a 15 seconds cooldown and with a survivability edge over wizards and psychics due to heavy harmor.

    Endgame

    Information specific to choices at endgame: alternate builds, preferred equipments, etc.

    Supply Stash

    ⊲ Level 5: Perfect Military Claymore - PATK 45-65, req. STR 16 DEX 13.

    ⊲ Can they use claws or fists? No, they can only use swords, dual swords, blades and dual blades.

    ⊲ Can they get 5 APS? No.

    ⊲ Do they require points in MAG? No, even their metal-based AOEs are based on physical damage.

    just had to say because i got tired of seeing most seekers suck that follow this guide you do need to upgrade your buffs such as *Saber Rattle, Krav Maga, Bladed Fervor* and your debuffs such as Heart Shatter are important just as Quid Pro Quo is for that give back skill does work in great combos but no one really knows because they are all told not to use the good skills.
