    Hi everyone and welcome to my MU Stat Buildup FAQ. This is my second FAQ
    to be submitted on GameFAQS, so hopefully I'm gonna get through just fine.


    IC. Version History |=-

    1.0 - Uploaded the Stat Build FAQ (the DL stat builds coming soon).

    -=| Stats and Builds |=-

    Stats affect every aspect of your character in MU. Whether you are in Bahr,
    Titan (the merged Maya & Wigle servers) or Test (where I have my account), the
    stats you distribute play a very big role on how you play.

    As there are different characters in MU, there are also different ways of
    playing them. There are curerntly five playable characters in MU: the Dark
    Knight [DK] (which evolves into the Blade Knight [BK]), Dark Wizard [DW] (Soul
    Master [SM]), Fairy Elf [FE] (Muse Elf [ME]), Magic Gladiator [MG] and Dark
    Lord [DL]. You get the MG by getting one character to level 220, and the DL by
    level 250.

    ************************************************** *****************************
    ************************************************** *****************************

    { ~KN000 }
    IIA. The Knights |=-

    The Dark Knight is one of the most favorite characters in MU Philippines.
    He has high power, lots of skills, tons of armor, and a wide array of weapons
    to choose from. After completing the Scroll of Emperor and Broken Sword quests,
    you can become a Blade Knight.

    One reason that the knight is so favored is due to his lethal Combo, a
    string of attacks that is unique only to the Blade Knight. Three attacks make
    up the combo: Twisting Slash, Rageful Blow, and Death Stab. The first can be
    acquired while still a DK, the other two require BK status.


    ************************************************** *****************************
    ************************************************** *****************************

    { ~KN01B }
    IIA1. Basic Knight

    Stats:
    Str: 700~800
    Agi: 700~800
    Vit: 300
    Ene: 200

    Recommended Weapons:
    Basically anything

    Recommended Armor Set:
    Anything up to a +7~+9 Black Dragon Set

    Notes:
    The Basic Knight build is, well, ideal for beginner knight players because
    of its balanced stat distribution. First-time Knights don't need mana that
    badly, and the 700-800 agi points translate into decent evasion and attack
    speed.

    ************************************************** *****************************
    ************************************************** *****************************

    { ~KN02V }
    IIA2. Vitality Knight

    Stats:
    Str: 500
    Agi: 600
    Vit: 800~1000
    Ene: 150~200

    Recommended Weapons:
    Basically anything

    Recommended Armor Set:
    +7 Dragon Set

    Notes:
    It should be pretty obvious that this build emphasizes more on your HP,
    thus making you a *bit* exasperating target for PK'ers and monsters alike.
    What more if you're the type who likes to use Greater Fortitude every now and
    then?

    ************************************************** *****************************
    ************************************************** *****************************

    { ~KN03A }
    IIA3. Agility Knight

    Stats:
    Str: 550
    Agi: 1000
    Vit: 300
    Ene: 100

    Recommended Weapons: **LIMITED FROM +7 UP TO +9**
    Swords (Sword Of Destruction, Knight Blade, Dark Breaker, etc.)
    Spears (Dragon Spear)

    Recommended Armor Set:
    +7 Dragon Set or +7 Black Dragon Set

    Notes:
    Agility points in MU reflect your attack speed and evasion, sometimes your
    damage (as is the case for Elves). A high-agi knight is necessary for quick
    assaults, ambushes, and staying long in duels.

    The weapon level limit restriction is due to the possibility that they may
    not be able to meet the required stats.

    ************************************************** *****************************
    ************************************************** *****************************

    { ~KN04A }
    IIA3. PK-Type Knight

    Stats:
    Str: 1000+
    Agi: 300~500
    Vit: 800+
    Ene: 250+

    Recommended Weapons:
    Swords (Sword Of Destruction, Knight Blade, Dark Breaker, etc.)
    Spears (Dragon Spear)

    Recommended Armor Set:
    +13 Dark Phoenix Set or +7 or higher Great Dragon Set

    Notes:
    As you can see, the PK Knight has high str, decent agi, and a big chunk of
    hit points. This buid is ideal for your sub (second) characters, because by the
    time you've leveled your first character up you would've set aside an armor set
    along with the weapons. Not to mention this knight would be very in demand when
    it comes to duels, guild wars or castle defense/siege.

    ************************************************** *****************************
    ************************************************** *****************************

    { ~KN05S }
    IIA3. Sweller Type Knight

    Stats:
    Str: 500
    Agi: 500
    Vit: 800+
    Ene: 1000~1500

    Recommended Weapons: **LIMITED TO +7**
    Blunt weapons (Morning Star, Flail, Crystal Morning Star, etc.)
    Swords (Sword Of Destruction, Knight Blade, Dark Breaker, etc.)

    Recommended Armor Set:
    +13 Bronze Set or +7 Dragon Set

    Notes:
    The high ene stat translates to 300+% skill damage, meaning if you have
    this knight cast Greater Fortitude while solo or in a party, the hp increase
    would be big. As in BIG, with almost a 1.5x increase! One downside is that he
    can't be in the thick of the fight at the frontlines, but he can be a big help
    along the middle columns, providing cover for the wizards and elves. Hey, a 300
    percent skill damage increase is still a 300 percent skill damage increase!

    { ~WI000 }
    IIB. The Wizards |=-

    These are the magicians of MU. Although they have low physical power, they
    make up for it by their astounding magical prowess. Wizards (and their second-
    level counterparts Soul Masters) make a big contribution to their guilds with
    powerful magic spells such as Nova, Aqua Beam, and Teleport Ally.

    ************************************************** *****************************
    ************************************************** *****************************

    { ~WI01E }
    IIB1. Energy Wizard

    Stats:
    Str: (Meet the requirements of your equipment)
    Agi: (Meet the requirements of your equipment)
    Vit: (Any value will do)
    Ene: 1200~1500

    Recommended Weapons:
    Staffs (Staff of Destruction, Legendary Staff, etc.)

    Recommended Armor Set:
    +7~+13 Legendary Set, Grand Soul or Dark Soul Set

    Notes:
    As far as I know, this is the most widely used build in MU Philippines for
    Wizards. Energy dictates the amount of damage you inflict on opponents (esp.
    the special or magical attacks), so having a high energy stat will mean a high
    amount of damage inflicted. The downside, of course, would be your VERY LOW HP.
    One hit from close range, or one stray Ice Arrow will almost surely kill you.
    Unless, of course, you cast Nova first... (-.-)

    ************************************************** *****************************
    ************************************************** *****************************

    { ~WI02H }
    IIB2. Hybrid Wizard

    Stats:
    Str: (Meet the requirements of your equipment)
    Agi: 800+
    Vit: (Any value will do)
    Ene: 800+

    Recommended Weapons:
    Staffs (is there any other weapon??)

    Recommended Armor Set:
    +7~+13 Legendary, Grand Soul or Dark Soul Set

    Notes:
    For those who wish to strike a balance between a fast-casting wizard and
    at the same time keep decent damage. Don't expect your wizard to make a one -
    hit kill.

    { ~EL000 }
    IIC. The Elves |=-

    Ah, the Elves. They're the only females in MU (aside from Queen Rainiers in
    Icarus and Ice Queens in Devias ^^), can use (cross)bows and maces, and some of
    the Knight's weaponry. Elves excel primarily in ranged combat and support, thus
    making them an invaluable part of any guild.

    ************************************************** *****************************
    ************************************************** *****************************

    { ~EL01H }
    IIC1. Hybrid Elf

    Stats:
    Str: (Meet the requirements of your equipment)
    Agi: 1200
    Vit: 50
    Ene: 750

    Recommended Weapons:
    Crossbows (Great Reign Crossbow/Saint Crossbow)
    Bows (Arrow Viper Bow/Celestial Bow)

    Recommended Armor Set:
    +7~+13 Divine Set or +7~+13 Red Spirit Set

    Notes:
    The Hybrid Elf is more or less the most common elf build on MU, as she can
    heal and buff comrades, as well as actively participate in combat with her
    summons and her deadly Ice Arrow skill. On the other hand, her only drawback
    is her VERY LOW HP. Once a Knight gets too close to her, it's an almost
    assured kill.

    ************************************************** *****************************
    ************************************************** *****************************

    { ~EL02E }
    IIC2. Energy Elf

    Stats:
    Str: (Meet the requirements of your equipment)
    Agi: (Meet the requirements of your equipment)
    Vit: (Any value will do)
    Ene: 1500+

    Recommended Weapons:
    Elemental Weapon Set (Scepter + Mace)

    Recommended Armor Set:
    +7~+13 Vine, Silk or Wind Set (anything higher needs more str)

    Notes:
    This is a difficult build, but in the end it pays for itself. Having a low
    attack power can be daunting, but when you're in a party your buffing and/or
    healing is considerably better. Plus, your Ice Arrow (if ever you're forced to
    use bows) will deal much more damage than Hybrid or Battle Elves.

    ************************************************** *****************************
    ************************************************** *****************************

    { ~EL03B }
    IIC3. Battle Elf

    Stats:
    Str: 750+
    Agi: 750
    Vit: 150~250
    Ene: 300+

    Recommended Weapons:
    Anything but bows/crossbows

    Recommended Armor Set:
    +7~+13 Divine Set

    Notes:
    Why did I say anything but bows? Much as I hate to admit it, Battle elves
    deal so-so damage on bows. They're better off using other weapons. Her edge
    over other elves is her higher HP, and slightly faster attacking.

    ************************************************** *****************************
    ************************************************** *****************************

    { ~EL04A }
    IIC3. Agility Elf

    Stats:
    Str: (Meet the requirements of your equipment)
    Agi: 1200-1500
    Vit: 200+
    Ene: 400~600

    Recommended Weapons:
    Bows (Arrow Viper Bow/Celestial Bow)
    Crossbows (Great Reign Crossbow/Saint Crosssbow)

    Recommended Armor Set:
    +7~+13 Red Spirit Set

    Notes:
    Quick attack speed, kicka** damage, and excellent long-range combat skills
    make this Elf another must-have in any guild. The Red Spirit set goes well with
    the Arrow Viper Bow, too.

    { ~MG000 }
    IID. The Magic Gladiators |=-

    Magic Gladiators are a crossbreed between Dark Knights and Wizards. He can
    use the Wizard's magical arsenal, and also utilize the Knight's weaponry. But
    in spite of his apparent advantages, the MG cannot use all the skills of either
    character. To make up for this deficit, he has skills all his own.

    ************************************************** *****************************
    ************************************************** *****************************

    { ~MG01B }
    IID1. Basic Magic Gladiator

    Stats:
    Str: 450
    Agi: 700
    Vit: 200
    Ene: 700

    Recommended Weapons:
    1-hand/2-hand swords
    1-hand staffs

    Recommended Armor Set:
    +7~+9 Storm Crow Set

    Notes:
    Being crossbred, an MG has a mix of weaknesses. For example, since he has
    the Wizard's affinity for magic, he needs to have an adequate mana supply,
    and at the same time his Knight's nature requires him to have a minimum amount
    of strength to be able to use his (DK's) equipment. See the point?

    ************************************************** *****************************
    ************************************************** *****************************

    { ~MG02S }
    IID2. Spellcasting Magic Gladiator

    Stats:
    Str: (Meet the requirements of your equipment)
    Agi: (Meet the requirements of your equipment)
    Vit: (Any value will do)
    Ene: 800~1200

    Recommended Weapons:
    Staffs

    Recommended Armor Set:
    +7 Legendary Set or +7 Storm Crow, Thunder Hawk or Hurricane Set

    Notes:
    Similar to the Energy Wizard build, this MG has a lot of mana waiting to be
    expended and once you start, it's hard to stop this MG from killing monster
    mobs in a jiffy. Better to put up a store and say, "Spot Taken!"

    ************************************************** *****************************
    ************************************************** *****************************

    { ~MG03W }
    IID3. Warrior Magic Gladiator

    Stats:
    Str: 700~775
    Agi: 650~825
    Vit: 250
    Ene: 300

    Recommended Weapons: **LIMITED FROM +7 UP TO +9**
    Blades/Swords (1h/2h)
    Axes (1h/2h)

    Recommended Armor Set:
    Almost anything +7~+9, even +13

    Notes:
    If you'll notice, this build is taken from the Basic Knight. As opposed to
    the build mentioned above, this one focuses on the MG's Knight nature.

    { ~DL000 }
    IIE. The Dark Lords|=-

    The newest character to enter MU, the Dark Lord has FIVE stat parameters
    instead of the usual four (Strength, Agility, Vitality, and Energy). The fifth
    stat is COMMAND, which dictates how many members a DL may hold in a guild at
    any given time, and also how well he controls his "pets" (the Dark Hose and
    the Dark Raven).
