I'm a lv 115 legionnaire and my stats are:

214 energy
189 stamina
203 attack
11 defence

I can level twice a day until the end of this month. From July onwards, I only can use the com once a day ( so a level per day). Can you guys give me advice on how to convert into a monster hunter, considering my stats and playing time. Thanks.

Your energy and stamina are good. I'd raise either your attack to 400 (the next damage bump) or defense to 200 (the first defense bump). You will need to use your energy in later bosses like Bahamut and Azriel so don't neglect it.

Otherwise keep raising your stamina and energy while keep attack/defense at good rates. Use skill points from leveling on stamina/energy and the skill points earned from quests/achievements on attack/defense.

Yeah. I basically agree. But if you're only going to be playing once a day, I would also recommend getting your Energy/Stamina up to 300 a piece. Before you add anything to attack/defense, even. Because if you don't, you'll be wasting recharge time. Plus, it'll help you level a bit faster and that's always welcome.

700 is the third bump. Around 700-800 should be enough.

do you mean next bump after 400? Is it any bump between these values ? I think items used also count so you can have bump earlier cant you ?

Your attack goes up with every single point you put in the stat. By a "bump" what is meant is a marked increase in damage output above and beyond the raw amount done by your base stats and item/general contributions.

Yeah, my damage dealt went up smoothly as I added attack until 800 where I've parked it for now.

No big jumps like there are for healing with defense.

Is 400 defense the second bump? If so, would it count if I get my defense up to 380, then equip Dante (he gives +20 to defense) whenever I need to fortify/dispell?

700 is the third bump. Around 700-800 should be enough.

are you referring to defence or attack? :confused:
I just hit 700 attack and I did'nt notice any drastic change in attack damage :(

Level 301 [Prince]
500-Max Energy
300-Max Stamina
1230-Attack
324-Defense

I have no problem with monsters but sometimes I still lose on pvp specially with higher level.

i like using Barbarus X3 stamina attack on monsters :D

can someone tell me what BSI means and how to calculate it? please, thanks!

Battle Strength Index

(Attack + Defense) / Level

thanks icollyer.

[1230+324]/301 = 5.16 BSI is that good?

It's ok. Remember that it is relative to the people you're beating up on. It's just a quick way to assess yourself relative to your level in terms of A/D.

It's ok for a hybrid, a bit low for a traditional PvP build.

But ironically you've discovered it at just the time when it becomes irrelevant.

Below level 300 your battle page shows opponents with roughly the same level as you, so BSI is a measure of PvP strength within your bracket. Once you hit level 300 (the "Gauntlet") you will see players of any level 300+; and more importantly, they will see you too! :eek:

You'll see how little protection a good BSI provides at your level when players of level 1000+ start beating on you. :D

Good point. Which is why I'm beefing up my LSI atm...

I would say energy. Get to 300 or so, then work on your stamina.

What should i focus? Questing (regular or demi-quests)?

IMO, it helps much if you get 300 in energy and Stamina first. This means you won't have any of that overfilled in a day, as recharge time for 300 will be 25 (24+1) hours, it really fits your playing schedule after July. You can fully use your energy and stamina with an Orc King and/or Barbie at the "near levelling up" position.

After that, you can just increase your attack/defense in order to fit your favorite monster. 200 Defense is a good idea for fortification. Hope this helps.
