Ragnarok Online: Valkyrie Uprising: Thief Assassin Stats and Skills - Katar Builds


       Here's a stats and skill build for the Thief job class in the MMORPG - Ragnarok Online: Valkyrie Uprising. This build will focus on using Katars as the main weapon, and exclusive skills that will reinforce the weapon.

       Katar Thief Sins excels in dishing out massive damages using their famous Sonic Blow skill and high Critical Rates! Refer below to learn more on how to build up your Katar Assassins!

- Thief/Assassin Katar Stats Build -

Understanding Ratios:
     - Example: 3 STR : 2 VIT means for every 3 STR, you should aim for 2 VIT.
Example: If you have 60 STR, you should aim for 40 VIT, or if you have 20 VIT, you should aim for 30 STR.

     - Note that Ratios doesn't need to be exact always. Allocate the way you want it.
Example: Go for 30 STR first then go for 20 VIT next, so in the end, you still have 3 STR : 2 VIT ratio.

Main Stats to Focus On:
     - STR: Increases your Attack damage output and Critical Hit percentage chance.
     - AGI: Increases Attack Speed, Accuracy, Dodge Rate (Flee), and your Minimum
Physical Damage (optional).
     - VIT: Increases your Max HP (plus higher HP Regen while sitting), and reduces
Physical damage received (after calculating Defense).

Stats Allocation: Target Ratios and Builds
Note: Builds are based from Skills, and Stats from equips/items that you will get later.
Choose what you think is best for your playing style, time and in-game money.

     - [7 STR : 3 VIT] Stats Ratio
     - Great damage output and survivability!
     - Popular build in the game, since you'll focus more on increasing your Sonic Blow's
attack power when it comes to items and skills. Aim for at least 30~40+ VIT to help increase your survivability.

    - Pure STR Stats Ratio
    - A glass cannon build that mainly focuses on high attacks and critical rates. Relies
more heavily on equipments to compensate the lack of survivability and Attack Speed.
     - Also a common build, to compensate Sonic Blow's very high SP consumption
and delay.

- Thief/Assassin Katar Skill Build -

     - I highly recommend that you follow the Dagger Skills First for faster leveling until
job change. The purpose is to get 1 or max Sonic Blow and Enhanced Sonic Blow to Lvl 10 asap!
     - Refer to the Skills section here: Thief Assassin Dagger Skill Build
     - When it comes to level grinding, Dagger Sins are faster and cheaper to play, so
let me warn you that playing Katar Sins will definitely consume more of your resources to level up!

     - After reaching Job Lvl 35 or "more" if you want (some players go for Job cap),
use a Flash Stick to reset your skills. You should get 1 free after changing your job class, Also make sure that you have a nice Katar to use for your current lvl!

Base Skills to Get: (In Order - After Using a Flash Stick!)
     - Deadly Crossing Lvl 5 = Debuff skill that has a chance to decrease your target's
DEF by 20% for 5 seconds.
     - Meteor Assault Lvl 8 = Just to unlock Dagger of Sky and Sonic Blow.

     - Sonic Blow Option 1: = Your main attack skill!
     - Sonic Blow Lvl 1 = Get Lvl 1 for now if you have low resources to spend for SP
pots. SP wise, Lvl 1 SB is better than Lvl 10 SB in a set time without any SP help, but you'll get lower damage output and kill/exp rate. Note that 50% and 500% are Total DMG, not DMG per Hit!).

     - Enhanced Sonic Blow Lvl 10 = To compensate the Lvl 1 Sonic Blow.
     - Katar Mastery Lvl 10 = To increase damage output.
     - Sonic Blow Lvl 10 = Slowly reach max Lvl from this point on.
     - Total = 43 Job Lvls.

     - Sonic Blow Option 2: = Your main attack skill!
     - Sonic Blow Lvl 10 = Doable as long that you can sustain 220 SP per skill use to
maintain it's high damage output and kill/exp rate per 8 seconds. SP pots, SP Absorb % Katars, and some MaxSP+ card/s (refer to Stats section below for more info) will help you out. Make it a 1 skill hit wonder!

     - Enhanced Sonic Blow Lvl 10 = To add more extra damage to Sonic Blow.
     - Katar Mastery Lvl 10 = To increase damage output.
     - Total = 43 Job Lvls.

More Skills to Add Above!
     - Increased Dodge Lvl 10 = Increases Flee or Dodge Rate to up to 30%.
     - Dagger of Sky Lvl 10 = To increase Critical Hit Rates.

Optional Skills
     - Cloaking Lvl 1 = Can be used as an escape mechanism.

*Notes
     - If you reached the Cap for Job Level!, the rest is up to your personal
preference now, you have the base skills that you needed most anyway.
     - If you want to reset your skills, use the "Flash Stick" item (free after job change,
get from Daily Spins or Buy in the Cash Shop).

- Stats to Get from Equips, Cards and Pets -

Damage Output!
     - (STR + or ATK +) Attack Damage = The more, the better. Aim for 500~1500+
Base Attack Stat!

     - (Critical +) Critical % Rate = Just get what you can from equips.
     - (Aspd +) Attack Speed = Just get what you can from equips or cards.
     - (AGI +) = Just get what you can from equips.
     - (MaxSP +) = Accessory and/or Helmet card or cards will do. This will allow you to use Deadly Crossing + Lvl 10 Sonic Blow + SP Pots with ease especially at early Assassin Lvls. At least one 150 SP card on 1 of your accessory will do, add more if you want.
     - (SP Absorb %) SP Steal = very optional, because you'll be using Skills more than
normal attacks.

Survivability!
     - (MaxHP +) Health Points = Stop if you are comfortable with your damage intake.
     - (DEF + ) Physical Defense = Mostly from cards and armor upgrades.
     - (MDEF +) Magic Defense = Just get what you can, Don't focus on it too much.

     - (VIT +) Mostly from equips, just get what you can.
     - (Flee +) Dodge Rate = Mostly from cards and equips, to increase survivability!
     - (HP Absorb %) Life Steal = Nice bonus stat to recover some free HP (optional).

       I recommend that you check the "Auction Machine NPC" (buy and sell
market), Weapon/Armor/Accessory Artificer NPCs (item crafting), Cash ShopEvent Manager, and Rankings for sample items and their stats.
