Fighter Skill Build Guide: Everything maxed except Brandish.
0. Combo Attack is auto-maxed.
1. Brandish, Combo Fury, Rage, Weapon Mastery (1)
2. Weapon Mastery (MAX)
3. Rage (MAX)
4. Physical Training (MAX)
5. Weapon Booster (MAX)
6. Combo Fury (MAX)
7. Brandish (19/20)
8. Final Attack (MAX)
Fighter primary attacking skill will be both Brandish and Combo Fury. Combo Fury is not spammable since it consumes a Combo Orb which is generated through using non-combo Active Skills such as Brandish and it has a slight delay when casting twice within the same period. However, Combo Fury has superb attacking range which can pull monsters which are non-visible in your screen. Add 1 SP (Skill Point) into Brandish, Combo Fury, Rage and Weapon Mastery to unlock the active skills and gain some passive boost benefits. First, max Weapon Mastery to stabilize your damage and increasing your minimum damage substantially. Secondly, max both Rage and Physical Training to increase both min-max damage up. With all the passive damage booster skills are maxed, you can easily 1HKO (1 Hit Kill) most monsters even with Level 1 Brandish and Combo Fury. Therefore, proceed with maxing Weapon Booster to decrease the delay of both active skills. Finally max Combo Fury to increase the number of monsters it can pull and cluster. Cap Brandish at Level 19 as there are insufficient SP to max all skills. Brandish is not maxed because it will be replaced by 3rd and 4th job skills as primary attacking skill. Finally max Final Attack.

Crusader Skill Build Guide: Everything maxed except Intrepid Slash.
1. Intrepid Slash, Rush, Panic, Self Recovery (1)
2. Rush (MAX)
3. Self Recovery (MAX)
4. Combo Synergy (MAX)
5. Chance Attack (MAX)
6. Panic (MAX)
3. Intrepid Slash (14/20)
8. Endure (MAX)
9. Shout (MAX)
Add 1 SP (Skill Point) into Intrepid Slash, Rush, Panic and Self Recovery to unlock these skills. First, max Rush to increase the number of mobs it can drag and cluster enemies. Level 1 Rush can 1HKO (1 Hit Kill) most enemies around Level 50-60 which makes leveling extremely fast! Next, max Self Recovery skill to replenish both HP and MP drastically. This reduces the need of restocking HP and MP potions in towns, thereby increasing training duration and save tons of meso in the long run. Third, max Combo Synergy to passively increase the damage you gain from the generated combo orbs. Fourth, max both Chance Attack and Panic to deal more damage to enemies under your Dark Effects. Some monsters such as the one from Monster Park aren’t affected by Stun. However, they can be debuff with Darkness from Panic Skill. Using these 2 skills in combination will allow you to dish more damage with Intrepid Slash. Cap Intrepid Slash at Level 19 so you have sufficient SP to max the remaining skills which are Endure and Shout. Personally I do not use Shout in training, therefore you can either max Intrepid Slash instead of Shout.

Hero 4th Job primary attacking skill will be Raging Blow accompanied with Puncture. Add 1 SP (Skill Point) to unlock Raging Blow, Combat Mastery and Advanced Final Attack for its buff boost.
