« on: Jul 26, 2017, 12:43 PM »
never made a monk so i could use some input on iron body please....

looking to make an iron body monk so i can clear the room in bio 3 to make a "safe spot".... is he even capable of this? ive seen renewal asuras tank necros but thats about it, an all the cards to make this work out would probably take a bit of time so any input would be nice   /ok


edit: calculators telling me it would "work" but id still like to hear it from someone who has done it  /ok

It won't work. Every mob besides Eremes Guile and Margaretha Sorin has a knockback move and Steel Body doesn't protect you from that. You can't clear an area using that, effectively. Snap with a high Flee build is more likely to work than Steel Body. On top of that, a single Spiral Pierce from Seyren is likely to chunk your HP, if not OHKO. Cecil will also hurt a ton with Sharp Shooting after Power Up.

The tried and true method is to use an Assassin Cross/Stalker with stacked Flee modifiers and Demihuman resistance, running AGI and VIT only. They let you make more strategic movements for pulling using Cloaking and Stealth Walk anyway.

Lord Knight as a pull comes next in effectiveness since Endure and Frenzy help you pull further.

I mean, you dual client for that with pots and Fly Wings to get out when you're about to die.

But when I solo Bio 3 I usually just clear using a High Wizard with Ice Wall and Bragi support. I never actually lure to clear a side of the map. It's just a little tricky to get rid of Cecils.

Anodyne only works for 7 hits, so you'll be losing it in much less than half a second. ]: Steel Body also causes you to lose out on Speed Potions if that's your style.

If you really insist on using Champion, I simply recommend just doing an AGI/VIT build with high Flee gear. Level 10 Dodge and 4x Fur Seal Cards give you an actually impressive Flee rate, and Snap and Pneuma allow for some luring options that Assassin Cross and Stalker don't have. Frilldora is also recommended as a swap.

You can run Steel Body and Strong Shield if you can remove Seyren, Eremes, and Howards from the area. Not sure how much Sharp Shooting will do from Cecil, but likely a lot.

Calculator's only calculate the "Mathematical" aspect of the game , if you're server is pre-renewal Steel body monk/champ to lure out the mob at bio lab 3 isn't that good idea , since they have many skill which pierce through defenses ! If its LK hitting you steel body is pretty useless to be frank xD
