◄Back to Pockie Ninja Character Stats and Skill Builds
- Featured Character: Pain -

Pain Outfit
     - S-Rank Orange Outfit
     - Illusion Release Skills +15%
     - BMV: 11(Strength)--11(Agility)--10(Stamina)

     - Punisher Build (Good Strength and Stamina BMV with great growth rates on all stats!).

     - Pain's BMVs are great because they all go above average! You can almost do any build that
you want for this set of well rounded BMVs! But for this guide, we will go for punisher build because Pain is also one of the best Punishers around.

     - Pain outfit can manipulate Illusion skills and increase it's proc-rates to over 30%!
     - Assassinate and Substitution: Key skills of Pain under illusion skills that can steal and heal
HP according to the damage dealt. Substitution is one of the annoying skills in game that can dodge all kinds of attacks! Doesn't work though if you get stunned or frozen.

     - With the new Outfit Recast System, Pioneer Pain outfit or Sage Pain outfit can increase
the proc-rate of Illusion Skills to over 40%! Imagine what will happen to Substitution's proc-rate!
It's like having a dodge stat with 47% pure dodge chance!

     - Your aim is to get high Damage Output and Defense to fulfill the punisher build and to get
the most out of your Assassinate skill. Punishers are kinda hard to build though because they require a well rounded stats to adapt to all battle situations. If you can pull this off, you'll become unstoppable!

- Village -

     - Honestly, you can choose any village but here's some preferred village/s:
