ApexKO final guide: Learn to play KO

Recommended Posts

Hi! Razor here. I'll post a long list of tips for every class. These are no advanced strategies or anything,  instead they are the most basic of things one could imagine. So basic that 99% of players aren't even aware of them, and don't even realize how much they suck at the classes they play for so long. If I could define this guide in two words it would be common sense.

Without further ado, let's begin.

Warrior protips:

  • Always have a shield in your inventory ready to be swapped, just like (good) rogues do with Chitin Shield. It can save you long enough until you get the 10k heal. It's also a must have in BDW.
  • In BDW, destroy the altar with shield equipped. It has a fast attack speed, unlike the Very Slow attack speed that Raptor has, or Slow in case of Baal or Wiri. You will always get the altar.
  • Yes, in BDW, as a Warrior, it is YOUR JOB TO DESTROY THE ALTAR. You are the tankiest class. So pay attention to the fucking timer, and get there. It isn't rocket science.
  • Don't overextend and chase away from your party in general pk. You will never catch a rogue. NEVER. Stop getting killed stupidly.
  • In Juraid, use your passion tree AOE skills when trash mobs spawn, such as Dooms, Apostles and Troll Warriors. Juraid is a speed event, and even 5 seconds can make the difference.
  • If you have a priest with 75 points in heal or higher in your party, do not use HP booster, because it will prevent said priest from casting a superior restore heal.
  • Use Resistance potions from sundries for the right situations.

I know you warrior players are used to just mashing away Cry Echo to win, but please try your hardest to incorporate these protips into your regular gameplay. You will do much better, trust me. ;)

 

Assassin protips:

  • Don't drain a weak monster (such as a Riote, or Bach) that is already below a certain HP threshold where your Spike + Thrust would do higher damage.
  • Use Illusion. It's a legit support skill that can save your poor party member from getting slain by another assassin.
  • In BDW, minor heal your flag carrier. Why is this so hard to comprehend?
  • In Juraid, don't drain Deva before your priest parasites, dumbass.

For every other situation, let your macro do the job. Next. ^_^

 

Archer protips:

  • Do not get into Arrow Shower / Multiple Shot range unless you're absolutely sure it's safe and you won't explode from focus fire in 2 seconds. People will focus archers.
  • Never use Blinding Strafe for damage. You're TRASH if you do so. It's one of the few panic buttons that an archer has and it's on a long cooldown.
  • Never use Power Shot unless you want to prevent a town attempt, or you want to finish someone off. Those are literally the only 2 uses this skill has.
  • Blow Arrow exists.
  • In Juraid, attack Minotaurs from the edge of the green targeting circle. That way all your arrows will land and not fail.
  • In BDW, try to be more supportive (cures, minor) and tanky than you would usually be, because you're the weakest class there along with BP in there.
  • If you are spamming 400-600 damage arrows, you should probably go do something better with your time (like farming gear). You're like a mosquito to that guy you're attacking.
  • Kiting is a thing. It's a legit strategy in every single game out there. You have range, they don't. Use it to your advantage.
  • Elf Rings are not good.
  • Windforce +11 > Hepa IB +11 > Helenid +11 / EE +11 (these last two only for when you're starting out). There are no other bows worth getting. Personal +11 also sucks.
  • Never get 23 points in master for Eskrima. It's beyond garbage on archers. Clunky and lower range than regular arrows. Cure Disease is a much better choice.
  • Styx exists. Some archers to this day don't even use it. I would say 4 out of 6 archers that I've faced in Apex (or even official KO) don't know of this item.

Archer isn't as easy to play as other class because you actually feel underpowered in every situation that isn't partying up with another 6-7 archers. Keep training. B)

 

Mage protips:

  • Instantly Magic Light Shock more often. Double Blink isn't the be-all end-all.
  • Try to give resistances to your priests and warriors.
  • In BDW, have at least a Chitin Shield or better (like Gab's Adamant +7).
  • Do not join BDW if you're a MP fire mage. You are not helping, and this isn't official KO where you would sometimes get in party with 3-4 more mages.
  • In Juraid, Double Blink and Call Party to save some seconds. If you have another lightning mage, then Double Blink, Teleport him, and have him Double Blink and Call Party (roles can be inversed). You will save a lot of time.

These are useful, but not that vital with the exception of the last tip in Juraid. Just have good positioning as a mage and a good sense of when to TP people, and you'll do fine. :)

 

Priest protips:

  • 10k and 960 aoe heals aren't the only heals that should be in your skill bar.
  • Debuffing takes a back seat to healing. What's the point of getting the perfect Torment when your party members are dead?
  • Don't Parasite a target that is already low on health. That's a free /town for them.
  • In Juraid, Parasite and Superior Parasite monsters in advance, not those that are already being killed.
  • In BDW, it is wise to reskill before it begins and leave your points unspent (other than 60 in heal) so you can then ask the other priest and go Buff or Debuff depending on what is needed.
  • In Forgotten Temple, give Fresh Mind to your party members if possible, also Undying.
  • In BDW, make sure to give Undying in case enemies don't have a debuffer.
  • In BDW, make it a priority to stay around your flag carrier, and heal him as much as you can.
  • In Juraid, it's all about speed, as previously stated. If you're a lobo hammer wielding priest who never attacks, you are not helping. Put Helis on your skill bar and help out with Smites +11 or something.

Are you telling me there's more than just healing whenever the party heals are off cooldown? :huh:

 

Kurian protips:

  • In Juraid, wait until your debuffer malices / torments the monster before using Divide Armor.
  • In Juraid, do not use Divide Armor on an almost dead mini-boss, you idiot.
  • Don't join Juraid as a DoT Kurian.
  • Do not Pull an enemy that is already close to you. Instead, Divide Armor first, then Pull if they run away. Most Kurians do this already. Most.
  • If you are a DoT Kurian and you're facing a rogue that has Cure Disease just give up and town. Your entire build is negated by a potion worth 482 coins in Sundries.
  • Use Rush over Pull if your target knows you're there. Odds are that he will immediately town once pulled. At least Rush is a 50/50 on whether he gets away or not. Use Pull on unaware enemies.
  • In Juraid, if it's a KS-race on who kills Deva first, use Thunderstorm the enemies when Deva is at 5% HP so that they're stunned and you take it. Timing takes practice.
  • Never use Berserk (50% bonus attack - 0 defense) unless you're facing mages or you're 100% sure your target hasn't noticed your presence.

The most braindead class of them all. Always makes me chuckle when despite that fact, people still manage to fail as a Kurian. Then I feel a little sad for them, it must suck to be that dumb. :ph34r:

 

Thanks for reading, let's see if you guys finally learn to play this 15+ years old game for once. I put it very nicely in colors so you guys have an easier learning experience :D

See you.

how boring has someones life to be to write something like this..?

Well yeah it is boring. Not everyone can be a stuntman who OD's on cocaine and pills but hey, that's the beauty of mankind. We're all different. It would suck if we all were identical.

Can you imagine a world full of Solozzo's? Literally nothing would get done lol.

I feel like I've had this identical conversation before... is that you Aziz? XD

Why do you keep coming at me hiding behind alt accounts? This isn't the first time you do this. Tell me, were you out clubbling and fucking pretty girls while you got black's account banned 'cuz of your repeated bug abusing? If so, you have to tell me how you do that, because honestly that's quite impressive.

I thought we were cool now. It breaks my heart!

This is serious shit, most priests in Apex do 10k and 960 and they're done healing till cooldown is over! Or worst like Brook who got no heal or cure in his skill bar, just spamin db.

I would say with certainty that, at least at a BASIC level (like this guide), yes, I know how to play KO very damn well. These are elementary tips that most people simply ignore. If I can do these things (as someone "who is doesnt even know how to play"), and your average player can't, then what does that make them? Handicapped, primitive life forms that can barely pass as human beings?

I'm not asking people to do a 1 frame complex keyboard input with 1 hand while blindfolded buddy. It's as easy as going to the npc and buying a fucking shield.

Nice english btw mdma.
