what ata's are level 100+ now?

is the fastest speed 10?

do ata's deal more damage than some fs/ms/ps/ks at the same level?

is it best to be pure and putting all points into agility?

Whats the best spirit for an ata?

i think all atas shold go low str after 9x... i actually dont see why they should wear heavy armors and stuff if they r not going to tank (if they r going to hunt most of the time and plan to lvl in parties ).. there is no need to be able to tank 2 or 3 hits if after the 1st ur gonna run away.. with low str they can tank 1 hit (like archers do) and deal same (or more) dmg than ms/ks... not too sure about ps/fs but if not the same it would be kinda close.. a good example is bear whose vengance spamming is sick and kills pretty fast...
but ranged mobs at ET can be a problem for low str atas.. i really dont know how high str atas do there but i guess if u hunt with a partner low str is the best choice..

Atas are also helped by the bugged dmg on lvl 100 jav, it outdmgs a lvl 102 jav so they have that working for them too once they are 100 ;x

well with vengeance you can dish out some nice damage but atas are underpowered for a very long time...
id say at high 7x you start having real fun as you can afford to max out storm and in mid 8x you can have a reasonably high vengeance... if you dont want to have high HoV

if you do a low str build i would strongly advise you to add at least 50 if not 70 health, this way you have some survivability in BC.

ata defense however is really well.with a reasonably high HoV you can have a combined block/evade rating of 50%

spirit wise go with 64 murky till high 7x and then with 72 devine after that if you want.
however you can also make a low spirit build which depends on high frost jav as buff so you dont have to rely on vengeance spamming

speed 8 is the limit and speed 9 with farinaspamming

isnt the limit speed 10 with farina?cause it says on ept1.blogspot that in the upper limits of skill lvl farina gives +2 speed,so technically


but yeah id say +1,cause i dont think anyone is willing to take the risk of upping farina to max lvl

you are correct!
actually you only need farina lvl 5 to get speed boost of 2.

i had to consult my stat calculator for this and truly i completely forgot about farinas possibilities...:rolleyes:

hmm well since farina is the only skill which chains with frostjav (but only tthe damage, not the freeze effect) it actually could be a usefull attack skill.

Bump: this site has some nice pointers but the ata guide is really bad and outdated

the stat formulas are also way outdated and dont work anymore
