    This is an excellent guide i took from the Silkroad official forums, i would not be able to make a guide so good by myself so i will just put this one here, i hope it helps you and enjoy!

    Guide made by Solaris.

    ~~~~~choosing the character build that is best for you~~~~~

    this guide is for newbies

    pros can look at this to for extra advise


    STR and INT

    on SilkRoad there are 2 basic builds to look into the first is full STR witch will make your character max out its HP, physical attack, and physical defence. Second is full INT you max out your MP, magic attack and magic defence. Once you pick your build stick with it all the way. adding INT to a full STR will weaken your character and vise versa

    FULL STR

    if you want to be full STR or TANKERS as people call them you must put all your Stat points on STR. Also use garment for your character. you will not need the extra physical defence of armor and the MP percent reduce will help with your low MP. without magic to back up your attacks your power will be low but with your high HP it will be hard for monsters to kill you. building STR characters is fun and easy at beginning levels but the low attack will slow down your grinding at higher levels. If you are a silk buyer then you may want to get a repair hammer. You will find your equipment running out of durability faster than you run out of potions

    FULL INT

    to be full INT or NUKERS as people call them, put all stat points on INT. Armor is best for this build to defend your low HP and low physical defence. Full INT players focus on their powerful attacks to kill monsters fast before taking too much damage. building a full INT will be hard at low levels do to your low HP, but after level 30 you will get to use your nuke skills and attack at a distance allowing you to grind easier and level faster. If you are a silk buyer then you may want to buy the 1000 MP potions. Even with the max MP you will find yourself burning trough MP potions fast.

    HYBRIDS

    hybrids are players who mix INT and STR together, there are 3 types and only one is good in the long run

    HYBRID type 1
    INT 50 / STR 50

    going fifty fifty on STR and INT is some thing new players do often. This is a short term gain long term loss, this build is only recommended for new players who want to try out all the skills and weapons available to silkroad and then starting over with a new character once they decide on what weapon and skills they like. this is also a good build for those who dont spend much time playing because they are too busy with their lives

    HYBRID type 2
    INT 20 / STR 80

    STR players give up some HP and attack power for more MP so they can use more skills. BAD IDEA this will create a weak character that will leave you frustrated with how often you get killed

    HYBRID type 3
    INT 80 / SRT 20

    INT players give up some attack power for extra HP. difficult to make yet if you find the right balance for your character you can make a strong character. Not recommended for players new to the game


    Chose your weapon



    BLADE

    possibly the weakest weapon on silkroad but is ideal for full STR. A one handed weapon allows you to carry a shield witch will help defend your HP and as a full STR this will make your character a real Die Hard Tanker. you can spend hours grinding on monsters and not have to worry about stocking up on HP potions. However you will find your self returning to town to repair your blade. be on the look out for a tab of mastery to make a stone that will increase the durability on your blade

    GlAVIE

    well balanced weapon for full STR users. It is a two handed weapon so you can not use a shield but with your high HP and physical defence as a full STR you can afford to go with out the shield for the extra attack power. Like the blade you will find your self needing repair more often then healing your self so try to upgrade it with a stone of master when you can

    SWORD

    well balanced weapon for full INT users. the use of a shield will help protect your low HP and weak physical defence. Due to the high magical attack of the sword you will use nuke skills more often than the sword skills. Because of this your sword durability will not go down as fast as the blade or glavie. You will only need to go to town to refill your MP potions.

    SPEAR

    strongest weapon in silkroad and ideal for full INT players. With your nuke skills backed up with your spears max magical attack power you will be able to 1 hit KO most monsters for your level. but this only works if you fight monsters 1 on 1. without the shield to protect your low HP you are vulnerable to getting swarmed by monsters. when this happens it is best to run away till the monsters split up so you can pick them off one at a time. A full INT with spear may make you a god among the monsters but there is great risk in PvP. beware of full STR and blade users, with their high HP and blocking ability they usually survive your first strike allowing them to hack off your low HP before you are able to charge up the next nuke. to help prevent blocking used by shields use a Stone of Discipline on your spear for block parry ratio

    BOW

    many people ague whether this weapon is good for full INT of STR. truth is they are both right. It depends on the level of your character. at low levels it is ideal for full INT users than switch to sword or spear at level 30
    as full STR best to use blade or glavie first and switch to bow at level 31. be sure to stock up on cursed hearts to transfer the SP when you switch weapons



    what skills are good for you?

    choosing your skills depend on the build and weapons of your character

    BICHEON Swordmanship

    as full STR with blade you will need this to be your primary skill tree. as full INT with sword only a small amount of skills are needed for most of your attacks will come from the force skills. The passive skill is a must for full INT for it will help you block attacks

    HEUKALl Spearmanship

    as full STR with Glavie this is your primary skill tree. Full INT users with the spear will probably never use these skills after they learn the nuke skills at level 30. the passive skill is a must for full INT users to add the extra HP

    PACHEON Bowmanship

    weather your full INT or STR you will need all of these skills if you are a bow user

    COLD Force Mastery

    weakest magic attack making it good for full STR users. the added effect of slowing your enemy down or freezing them all together makes it ideal for bow users. as full INT you should make this your secondary force skill tree to take advantage of the frost guard and cold armor skills

    LIGHTNING Force Mastery

    strong magic attack with the ability to attack multiple enemies. with the exception of the nuke at level 30 the extra attack caused by the thunder force is very low so it is only good for getting a monsters attention making this useful for blade users. a lot of players regardless of build like to use this as their secondary skill tree for the Piercing Force skills and Wind Walk skills

    FIRE force Mastery

    strongest magic attack for both STR and INT. the Flame Wave skills are most popular for the full INT users. full STR should make this secondary to use the Flame Body Skills, Fire Protection Skills, and Flame Devil Force Skills

    FORCE Power Mastery

    best if you like to help support other characters as a healer. Ideal for full STR characters
