The perfect Fradz
« on: July 17, 2011, 05:03:05 am »

Spell 1 - Ok this is a hard decision. I know that Aero use Fradz as a caster and IDK why he bothred so much to try that lol. It's better if he remain a DPS. Ok so Illusory Double creates a mirror image every time you get in battle. However the image only deals 45% of Fradz's dmg but it takes 300% dmg. I'm not saying it's useless but Fradz would be stronger with an individual spell (Blade Dance) making Fradz go mad and gain 300% atk speed and loses only 33% of his defese. IF you have got the combat king Siphon Life on a high lvl , Fradz and this spell could be really strong.HOWEVER , if you have some give ups , you may find the Illusory Double better.

Spell 2 - Discharge is the perfect spell for massive damage output(low cool down - massive damage). While the others deal relatively lower dmg , they apply really useful debuffs on the target. Yet they didn't match Discharge. However there is the instant flash , witch could mach it if you want to make Fradz a real DPS. But if you play with Blessing of Lightning, you should pick Discharge, or Shock, if you want  to run from an enemy, and also hit him further.

Spell 3 - While in Flash Strike Fradz is completely vulnerable, therefore Lightning Ball and Lightning Storm are the best decisions :) Here we found out that they are both good and no matter what you pick, they are always a part of the combo.If have some give ups ,  Lightning Ball is better tough.

Spell 4 - While most ppl use Ligtning Mastery and Invisible Strike, we found out that Fradz's huge atk speed is better with Lightning Attack. Lightning Mastery is good if you try to make Fradz a caster, and Invisibility also is good if you don't want so much atk speed, and you care only for dmg. Yet as fradz attacks so much with this combo we have chosen , we should add some instant surprising dmg. Also the Lightning Attack is good for both Int Fradz and Agi Fradz, because on Int fradz Lightning Attack deals lots of dmg and on Agi Fradz, it occurs really often.

Spell 5 - Hydro Shell(Bonus armor) and Speed Boost(Bonus AS and MS) are good, each has its own advantages and disadvantages, yet we understand that Blessing of Lightning is the strongest of all:D.Whith its area heal and area buff,  it's good for keeping the whole party stronger and safer. With this spell all your stats will be increased, allowing you to deal more dmg with the other spells. However if you INSIST on making Fradz a true DPS, you can ignore Blessing of Lightning and its spell bonuses, and instead pick Speed Boost..

Spell 6 - So I'm sure Teleport Strike is stronger than any DPS spell that our characters use. Not only that it makes Fradz invulnerable till the spell is done,  but it also deals 12 devastating attacks. If you have Blessing of Lightning on, you will deal even more dmg with each slash, that's why this spell inflicts so much dmg that Fradz can actually take out 50% of a boss 's HP. This is also a good reason why you should pick Blessing of Lightning.


IMPORTANT: When you cast Teleport Strike, be sure you are fighting a single enemy or, if you are fighting a lot of enemies, be sure they are close to each other and they will not run. If one runs Fradz may continue to slash him and when that enemy goes too far then Fradz kills him, the combo will be lost because he's too far from the other targets.


Now about the combat kings with Fradz here's what you should pick:
-Berserk: Duh !
-Siphon Life: Hmm ,yummy yummy, well, Life Steal is always recommended for high lvl midgets.
-Blind: Since you attack fast, it's good.
-Force Blow: DMG!
-Rage: Extremely useful for Fradz.



Ch2:
Try stealing as many items as you can and don't waste your money too much, also try defeating all the bosses and completing all the quests. Try making a defensive gear in chapter 2, because Fradz is really weak there, also don't put yourself in fights that are above your lvl.

Ch5:
Acquire all the dmg items from Phodom(Including Zwill blade/Orichalcon). They will serve you well. If you play Int Fradz ,you should have some of the magic damage for Discharge and area spells.


Ch6:
Always retain as much HP as you can, don't enter a room alone, keep using your area heal so Phodom is always empowered (because he's a tank)

Ch7:
Steal everything, on this chapter you should have lots of money so it's not that hard. However if you spend them, try being a little defensive also.

Agree with you for most point except one
Spell 5-Hydro shell and Speed bosts are good , evry one with is own advantages and disadvantages , yet we understand that Lightning Bless is the strongest of all:D.While it's area heal and area buff ,  it's good for keeping all the party stronger and safer.With this spell all your stats will be increased , making you to deal more dmg for the other spells

I think speedy boost is the best here for DPS and fast escape, it's also prove useful while you in a huge map like chapter 6. It's also good for early chapter since Fradz hp and mp recovery is low as hell. The most important thing is: it greatly increase Agility which effect Fradz's Teleport Strike greatly.

I usually use this combo: Invi Strike -> Speedy boost -> Blade dance -> Teleport Strike

Speedy boost will speed up your hp and mp recover help you and your party during blade dance, and recover some mp for the ultimate, if you do this right, teleport strike will finish before the speedy boost run out of time. If you combine this with Siphon life combat king, you have nothing to worry about Fradz.

@Tears , well to be honest,  i never tried speedy boost for fradz.I just didn't ever tried it :|.Yet one player (that still wish to remain anonymous) said he finished **** using this combo and when he tried with the speed boost he died at epic boss in ch2 easily.However i will try to use speed boosts :)

Personally,
Blade Dance
Discharge
Lightning Ball
Lightning Mastery
Speedy Boost
Teleport Strike.

I tend to enter combat with Discharge and Blade Dance on, I use Lightning Ball when I'm low on hp, Lightning Mastery helps to make Lightning Ball really flesh out its true potential, In cases like the CH2 Epic Boss or just when I'm low on hp (Fradz for me has lower then 1k hp in ch2, I piled into agi) I use Speed Boost to get away from dangers, such as the instant kills that the Epic Boss would normally do to me, I use Teleport Strike if Speedy boost isn't there, and I need time to use a potion.

Tends to work out well, But it always keeps me on the edge, With that low HP, Any hit can kill you.

Personally,
Blade Dance
Discharge

Nice discussion indeed. The forums needs some serious business like this. Anyway I'm here first to lurk and then asking about few things:

- Should I make Flash Strike like Teleport Strike when you have 100% evasion(so it would be that useless ability)?


Here are some abilities I'm gonna add to 1.6a or 1.6b to give you more pleasant abilities you desire:

Instant Slash

Fradz teleports behind a target enemy unit dealing damage and giving it Stagger for 5 seconds. If the target is under the effect of Bleed, the ability deals 25% extra damage. |n|c00FEBA0EHotkey: Z. |nType: Target. |nCast time: 0. |nCooldown: 8 seconds. |nEffect increases with level and agility. |nCalc: (abilvlx75)+(agix5)

Whirlwind

With swords and stubbornness, Fradz spins around rapidly dealing damage to enemies in a narrow area. While spinning, gives enemies Bleed for 3 seconds. Fradz can spin for 5 seconds until he is exhausted. |n|c00FEBA0EHotkey: C. |nType: Activate. |nCast time: 0. |nCooldown: 20 seconds. |nEffect increases with level, agility and strength. |nCalc: ((abilvlx100)+(agix5)+(strx5))/5

Of course it's not removed. That's just "agility version" of that Lightning Storm!

What do you think?

I think i have a suggestion for that ability and lighting storm 2, maybe you could do a option to click on the ability again while spining so we can stop the spin in any moment in that 5 seconds because sometimes i feel whoohoo i am spinning but then the boss get esteroids in damage and i am like o noes i cannot cast anotehr spell to defender myself :( and then... dead Fradz.

Haven't I told about that system thousand times already?

It's just a simple system. Some abilities can give Brittle, Bleed or Stagger for few seconds. Some abilities can use these buffs to deal more damage then normally.

And about EndlessPain's suggestion I'm not sure. I think the ability can't be cancelled because it's based on Blade Master's Bladestorm which cannot be cancelled.  :-[

You could always play around with immolation and divine shield a bit.
