  1. Hello Everyone! My name is Sybarite. I'm a Imperial Guard from the guild Filthy Casuals on Helheim, and today I will be explaining the defensive aspects of Imperial Guard I will try to explain as much as possible, but this is my first guide. So pardon in advance if I am not able to explain myself fully. What is Devotion, and why is it important? Devotion is one of the most powerful support tools that are in the crusader class. Is a skill that makes a link with the target party member between 30 base levels of difference. Redirecting all the damage they take towards you, allowing you to become a powerful tank without the need of direct tank and position yourself in the back line. With that explained lets get to the contents of the guide. Contents of the Guide: 1.1 Introduction 1.2 Advantages and Disadvantages 1.3 Equipment 1.4 Stats 2.1 Leveling Phase 2.2 Instance Phase 2.3 End Game Dungeons 3.1 Skill Mechanics 4.1 PvP 4.2 WoE 5. End [1.1] Introduction Regardless of what majority of people think: Devotion Royal Guard is not that expensive. Most of the gear can be obtained through grinding and party play, but keep in mind you are a tank. Not a DPS. So there would be cases where u will feel that u can't really do nothing rather than watch your giant Gryphon being carried through instances but don't feel powerless. This guide is aiming to explain all the defensive capabilities of Royal Guard and how to become a colossus to lend your high amounts of hp to classes that struggle to survive. [1.2] Advantages and Disadvantages TL;DR + High HP + Increases the overall durability of the Party + Enables glass cannons to go for high damage builds + Look at those muscles bro. - Low to no damage at all. - AB's struggle to heal, and you need to rely on Yggs. - If a tool is misused you can cause a wipe. - "Sacra ples" [1.3] Equipment Here I will leave two screenshots of the build finished and explain the tiers of the equipment: That would be an example of the build finished, with that equipment you can reach (1m - 1.8m HP) at a party setting + consumables. Low Tier equipment (Starting Set) Middle Tier Equipment (Instancing) End-Game Equipment (Pit. Ruins and World Bosses Tanking) Luxury Items (MvPs) [1.4] Stats The stats I'm using currently are for maximizing Prestige dodge ratio. Due to the existence of Gym Passes and Call Storage having large amounts of STR is not needed anymore to carry potions around. Magic Dodge Stats (75.75% Magic Dodge Chance) Suggested Overall Stat Build. [2.1] Leveling Phase Now with the Stats and Equipment settled aside. The skill setup and leveling: Imperial Guard Skill Tree [250/60] Leveling as Devotion Build [2.2] Instance Phase [2.3] End Game Dungeons Fortessa Dungeons Purgatory Difficulty (On progress...) Guardian Angel (On progress..) [3.1] Skill Mechanics [4.1] PvP [4.2] WoE [5] End If you managed to reach this far through all the walls of text giving explanations. I'd like to say thank you for taking your time and i hope this was useful enough or motivated you in any way to try Devotion RG. I'd tried to give insight of on what I have learned in my time of playing the class and explaining stuff that you learn from practice and experience is not that easy. Don't let failures let you down from trying the class. Learning how to time Earth Dive and King's Grace might take time and only practice will give you the correct feeling of who you should Devo. I hope the guide was useful or at least entertaining to read. If you have any suggestions to the build, or you know any build that will possibly give more MHP please feel free to share it below. If you have any suggestions or questions towards the build or anything I might probably ignore feel free to contact me on discord [Sybarite#6602] or finding me at @fc on the Filthy Casuals's base. Thank you for reading!
  2. Tank & Devotion Royal Guard (Demonstration Video Included) So your party said they needed a tanky boi, and here you are, entrusted with the mission of protecting your fellow teammates, but the thing is... How to protect them, if you have no idea where to start with protecting yourself?! Follow me, and I will show you the secrets to achieving the "impossible", the ultimate tanky boi build, step by step! Build Objectives: - Neutral/elemental physical & magical resistance: no need to comment on this, right? RIGHT?! - MaxHP: no matter how much protection you can sport, your enemies allies are always there to take a hit for you... no, wait! <triggered> - Fixed/variable cast time reduction: instant Devotion cast heaven (Devotion has 1.5s of both VCT and FCT). - Hard Defense: this will be crucial to reduce part of the leftover damage (elemental melee attacks). So where do we even begin with our build? Equipment Cards Shadow Set Costumes Pet Consumables Skill Tree STATS and how my set looks like at the moment: Str for carrying more consumables/loot, Int and Dex for the instant variable cast, since Devotion has 1.5s and Luk for the Arc Angeling Card. Demonstration Video: Final considerations: With the 100% neutral damage reduction, you will be able to tank all NEUTRAL melee, ranged and magical damage from Fortessa Dungeons, Pit and Ruins (Severe Rainstorm, Cross Impact (if not poison enchanted), Ignition Break & Comet), Bio 5 (except for elemental melee & spells/traps) and anything else you attempt, such as end game instances and extreme farming. The partial elemental resistance as well as your Hard Defense will also benefit you greatly, since some creatures have elemental based melee attacks, which will bypass your neutral strategy. The extremely high HP will also help you tank damage from your DEAR TEAMMATES THAT YOU LOVE SO DEARLY!! The rest of it is up to you (player skill) of course, so practice endlessly until you get the feel of the build and are comfortable with the support skills and consumables. Enjoy, and if you have any questions or suggestions, whatsoever, ask away. and by the way, have you heard about my pie friend?
  3. Cannon Spear Royal Guard While Royal Guards may look like they've been left out and forgotten in time, at least damage-wise, I have come to show you that this is still a fun class to play with, even before the recent reworks, and the results were not disappointing at all. Ok, so first off, the build revolves around STR (the damage modifier is STR * 5), Long Ranged Damage & Critical Damage (Cannon Spear is now a true crit skill). Equipment Cards Shadow Set Costumes Skill Tree Damage This is how my set looks like at the moment: Conclusion: - Do your best to distribute and balance out STR, ATK %, Ranged and Critical Damage, and remember to make good use of the LUK Sticks and Abrasives as well, since you need CRIT rate 100, and Infinite Phreeoni will hardly benefit you (you'll loose too much damage, which cannot be replaced by lower costumes). - As of this moment, since we cannot remove 100% of Cannon Spear's cooldown (maximum being 1,5s), I recommend opting for Bio 5 Headgear + Patent Aquatic Spear over Trial Diadem + Fortridge, since if you have them well refined and enchanted, the damage, and consequently the DPS, will be higher than having this extra 0,5s cooldown reduction from it, not to mention the nice CRIT rate bonus from Expectation. Enjoy, and if you have any questions or suggestions, whatsoever, ask away.
