hunter's falcon?
« on: May 15, 2008, 03:44 am »
I just became a hunter and got the falcon skill, I rented one and went out to get some job levels but have 3 questions..

1)  how do I make the falcon attack? it just floats and does nothing, I can do a blitz beat that makes it do an attack but Im ususally using double strafe so I cant use 2 skills at once, is the falcon a weak investment for skills?

2) how long does it last? I "rented" one I thought you just had one with you always?

3) if it does "expire" (which is sort of lame) do I have to make a trip to hugel each time to rent a new one? or is there an npc closer in prontera or something?

Falcon is like a on/off skill, it has no duration, like peco, once you rent it will always be with you.
You can remove your falcon by hitting the "off" button on inventory screen.

As for make falcon attack, you will need LK, the rate of auto-blitzbeat (falcon attack) is luk/3 in % (30 luk = 10% chance) on REGULAR attacks only.

Oh allright I see, so if I don't plan to put any stat points into LUK (I use DEX and AGI) I should probably not level the falcon's attack skills?  then besides ankle snare (which is pretty cool) what other skills does a hunter have that make it different from archer?  so far I've just been snaring a monster then using  double strafe, seems to work fine. Is there better skills/strategies to leveling with hunter?

For leveling?  Double Strafe+Enchanted Peach Tree=Easy Exp+Easy Zeny

If all I do is double strafe then all hunter really is is a pretty archer with a snare, which is fine I suppose, I was just curious if there was a better way to level with it then how I did with archer, and from what I saw in the monster list, geographers give more exp than those peach trees. I play on the normal server so I dont have any triple exp or anything, geos give bad exp for my base level (and soon my new job level) so i'l need to find something better soon

Peach Trees give Royal Jelly. Royal Jelly recovers a good amount of SP, but also sells really really really good.

Thus Peach Tree>Geo

In my experience a falcon hunter levels faster if you use a good build. In respect to this server you can go ahaead and try it out and if you don't like it you can always reset your stat points and redistribute. In my opinion a good falcon build will consist of 60 dex 50+luk 40 int 90+agi depending on what level you are this will vary, however, 60 dex and around 70-80 agi are a must before putting anything in to luk or int. But i suggest you should try it out since you can reset after all.
