Ragnarok: War of Gods: Battle Acolyte Stats and Skill Build

       This Acolyte build will focus on using brute force and magical support spells to make things easier from lower levels until Job Change. After the job change, it's up to you if you want to be a Full Support Priest or stay as a Battle Priest.

       Refer below to determine which stats and skill build is best for your playing style. You can play solo with this build, but if you are in a party, make sure to let them know that you are a Battle Acolyte!

- Battle Acolyte Stats Build -

Understanding Ratios:
     - Example: STR 3 : 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 VIT first then go for 20 STR next, so in the end, you still have 3 VIT : 2 STR ratio.

Main Stats to Focus On:
     - STR: Increases your ATK damage and Critical chance rate.
     - INT: Increases your Magic Attack damage output, Heal, and Max SP pool.
     - 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.

     - [STR 5 : INT 3 : VIT 2] or [STR 7 : INT 3] Stats Ratio
     - Since you will be using Physical Attacks to level up your Acolyte, you should
focus on STR more than INT. You will still get a good amount of Heal with this stat ratio, so don't worry.
     - If you are comfortable with your Heal amount (around 20~30 INT) and Health
damage intake (Around 20 VIT), stop and pump all your points to STR to increase your Damage per Hit!
