there is a big MAZE of builds for a pally out there. . . My situation is that it's been somewhat 11 years since i last played RO, and though im familiar with a knight, im pretty much "clueless" with a sader/pally, so im in need of some help. the problem for me is the fact that i am stuck with pretty much "basic" gear.. that means a lance, shield[1], ring[1], boots[1], undershirt+pantie combo and such... i did find a thara and poopoo hat, but other than that, it's not much more...

so. onto the issue: which builds are best for me to SOLO with a pally? im about to rebirth to become a pally. Occasionally, i find a party with a hunter and a sin, but no priest. that's the problem. so exclude suggestions like "party with <insert other classes>"..

my current build has been between AGI-HC build and GC-build, but GC i cannot do cuz i lack gear, so it's rather useless for me.

note that i cannot get powerful gear yet. lacking zeny (currently farming at hill winds). i do have resources to get enough white pots but no sp recovery items though i do have about 700 honey that i have gathered from bigfoot..

i would like to solo some basic mvp's, but i understand that im rather limited to that.

i have tried several guides/builds/level spots such as:

https://irowiki.org/wiki/Crusader#Builds
https://irowiki.org/classic/Leveling_Spots#Spear_Crusader
https://wiki.talonro.com/Leveling_Guide
https://www.novaragnarok.com/wiki/Halves%27_Royal_Guard_Class_Guide

as you can see, i find a DOZEN guides, but all of them are like "just get a +9 valk shield blablabla".. not possible for me. and all the guides i do find, are either sader-only or for RG...

so, all this taken into consideration, do you have any suggestions on which builds i should try out for going solo considering my current situation and access to only basic equipment? what sort of offensive options do i have with a pally? only sacrifice and shield chain? can i really mvp with those..?

i know im asking for A LOT here, but i hope that we can somehow make a nice "list" for someone who's just starting up etc. and since im rather clueless about this and since i absolutely DO want to make it to work with a pally (meaning i do not want to use other classes), i will appreciate all advises! thanks in advance!

In the end, it's your zeny that limits your gears and thus limits your build options.  You aren't going to stay with basic gears for a long time, any guide will require you to work towards the gears they recommend.   In the mean time just farm zeny and get geared up?

Hello
You could try to do a Shield Pala.
The damage is around 2k with your equip thats good enough for farming.
Stats: 99 str, 8x agi for lesser pots and some int
You could level on skeleton worker/ Mino's and with luck you get 2 skel worker and mino cards for an allrounder weapon.
Use for that a Mace because it gives more aspd than lance or pike. Main gauch works too.
Btw you need SoulLinker for that. But you can easy leech the soullinker with a Priest ;) so you have all your needed chars for leveling ( park your priest/SL on map logout ) and run with crusader over map untill low sp/hp go back to priest get heal/magni wait a little bit and do the same again ;)


For mvping is needed some good eq but with shieldboomerang and time you can Kill mvps like eddga, rsx, hatii etc.
For bigger you can use reflect shield and battleground set. But your server looks like low rate and without warper, right?

thanks for the suggestions and advises! :) yes it is a small server, but we do have resetter and warper, so that's all ok. no dual-clienting, though...

just got myself a cheap ring[1].. would a mantis card in that be somewhat useful, or?

so you suggest to put how many skel worker cards into which mace..? any suggestions?

i see you mention shield builds.. shield boom is depending on shields weight right? and what you mean by good gear vs i.e RSX? any suggestions there? also, will 99 str, 8x agi work for shield boom build too?

sorry for so many questions, but i hope you will take some time to reply. thanks for valuable info so far!

All Str Stuff will increase dmg so yes to mantis card.
When there is no dual clienting we can stop at this point because soullinker is needed. It doubles dmg and you cant miss target.
2 skel worker and 2 mino cards in one 4 slotted mace so you can kill the most monsters with everytime same dmg when you cant get easy some other cards.

Good eq is like Bradium shield with tamruan, 4 slotted mace with dmg cards against boss/race/size of mvp, dia rings of muscle and headgears which give some str. (Like Marionett doll and evil wing ears ) dont know which headgears you can get on your server. Ship captain works too ;)
