Disclaimer: I'm an *** if you are aflicted by the sensitive and feel that the blunt truth isnt your cup of tea heres a nice FAQ full of bunnies and ponys that wolnt hurt your feelings so dont cry in this damn thread about how butthurt you are. Alright? Good heres your prissyfied FAQ http://pwi-forum.perfectworld.com/showthread.php?t=1040281
Ok lets face it our forum is plauged by people who cant figure out/ are to lazy to use the search function/faceroll their keyboard to make incoherent posts. This is basicly a FAQ thread to answer the most common (and annoying) questions, provide a thread to actively post charecter builds and such off ecatomb.net (because those clog up our damn forum) and its somethign for me to link along with flameing troll posts to the jackholes who cant bother useing it.
OMG LOOK AT MY BUILD IS IT GOOD?
Post it with a link from ecatomb.net in this thread will get back to you or if your an idiot laugh at you then get back with you...if your a troll i have a gruff squad prepared. Or see the endgame section below for ideas.
Whats the fist axe build/how do i make a bm/whats the DD build/whats The best bm build/whats the bm tank build?
fist axe or all weapon build is 3 str 2 dex per level modified for gear adds. Vit is ok for leveling however str focused builds are where its at for endgame. Leave hp to your armor once you start gettign decent refines.
How do i grind?
You kill mobs by clicking them 2x while wearing fists till you hit 7x on mag mobs you may need to hit shadowless kick on phys mobs physical marrow is good sutra heal takes care of hp loss, at 70+ AOE grinding with axes does become an option get calamities (70 mold axe with sac strike add) go run in circles with the seaweed theives. Or just goon to 105.
Whats the best armor build?
Use Heavy armor (HA) it refines for more hp gives higher overall stats than LA and you tank far more phys damage than magic, at 60 Bracers of blood moon become an option for interval, at 99+ light armor bracers and boots become an option for even more interval (anything but bracer/boots and i throw this rock at your head call you sally and laugh at you for being a fat little piggy) Ornaments should be either 2 magic or if your desperate for phys/interval def 1 mag 1 phys.
Will i get enough spirit?
Yes you will have enough spirit for all your weapons, you can pause levelign in the 8x range to gamma/FCC for spirit if you want to, dosent really matter though.
Sage or demon?
I've always been a strong supporter of demon both for mass pvp due to balanced def and longer HF/more reliable stun and 1v1 where demon is the undisputed culti for bm, due to the amazing control def and wider range of damage and disables. However I would consider sage if your a rich bloke who can afford full rank 9rr simply because of the chi gain and conservation however demons stuns are still relevant here so its a 50/50. If your a poor bugger like me, just go demon Seriously do it you will never ever regret it.
Can i be a good bm as pure sword/axe/pole/fist/bow/pataka
Any single weapon build will suck compared to multipath (with rare exeptions like vit axe in TW or R9 3rd cast anything) if you are considering this accept that no squads will want you ever. Its a game though so do w/e you like.
How do i hit 5 aps?
Get -.5 total interval with fists...if this makes sense good. If not heres the basics, all weapons are based on interval this reflects attack speed speed boosts subtract a % of your current interval (count demon spark as -.1 at 2.86 base or higher) fists start at 1.43 aps or .7 interval, the cap is 5 aps or .2 interval. Commonly used interval items in game at 100+ arre are Lunar/Lunar Trophy cape (-.05), Tome- love up and down/Pan Gu creator(-.05), Nirvana second recast pants (-.05), TT99 HA/LA bracers (-.01), 2 items from either HA or LA from a tt 99 set (-.05 or -.1 if you get both), Deicide/Strikeing dragon/1st cast nirvana claw (-.1), Demon spark (its your 89+ spark count explained how it works earlier)
Hey I'm 100 and have NO idea what to do for endgame, LA ornies are ok right?
First of all NO NO NO LA ornies bad *rolled up newspaper*. Second of all pwi's max gear level is always riseing so a "endgame" build is pretty much unobtainable unless your a massive cash shopper or a extremely successful merchant. Just for the love of GOD avoid making a build like this. Seriously dont even post it >.>.
Thuper special awesome pro LC cash shopper build http://pwcalc.com/c87323c04c990632
That aside I would go for the tier one build below as a base, if your bm is just for farming feel free to stop there its a perfectly viable build for pve. R9 3rd cast if your really into TW and R999/R8R hybrid if your a big fan of 1v1 or small group pvp. Ofc these builds are not the be all end all of pwi and you can change them as you wish just remember that def level and raw phys and mag def are far more useful than hp in the long run until you actually hit the 90% cap of pwi however HP is needed as a multiplier for phys/mag def and def level.

Wait my question wasent answered here
Ok post your question in this thread and you should get an answer if its good enough it may even get added to the FAQ. Or just use our forums nifty search function. If you cannot do the above GTFO of these forums. Look i'll even throw you a few freebies with comentary in case your 1/2 tarded and cant work the search button or are just totaly new to the game. Listed in the order i dug them up because i'm a lazy bum (note if the guide is stickied it will not be linked here because if you cant find it your to dumb ot live anyways)
Hippies guide has decent info on stat distribution and skill combos/weapon useage i do not agree with his stance on sage vs demon but meh guide is usefull
Sakubatou's all path guide longer n hell and decent info
(those 2 are all i can think off off the top of my head somone message me if they find another usefull one for bm's concerning build info or i guess a non tarded instance guide)
If anyone seems incapable of the above scorn them so hard they burst into flame we need to make an example of a few flameing scorn idiots to warn the rest...and possibly post their skulls on the forum link yes they will be mounted on pikes.
