Skill Build: Everything maxed except Somersault Kick.
1. Add 1 SP into Somersault Kick.
2. Max Dash, Lightning and Quick Motion.
3. Max Shadow Heart and HP Boost.
4. Dump remaining SP into Somersault Kick.
Somersault Kick will be your primary attacking skill as a 1st Job Thunder Breaker. Add 1 SP (Skill Point) to unlock the skill. Max Dash (speed up travelling between towns and hunting grounds) followed by Lightning (spirit to aid you in battle) and Quick Motion (increases your accuracy to hit monsters above your level with more success). Shadow Heart and HP Boost can be maxed later on since most monsters at this stage are manageable with 1-2 hit KO. HP Boost raises your Max Health Points so you will have less risk of dying in 1 hit when inflicted with powerful damage by high level monsters especially boss. Shadow Heart increases your Critical Rate so you can deal extra damage but this works best with skills that hit monsters multiple times instead of 1. The reason Lightning is maxed instead of Somersault Kick is because of 3 reasons. First, there is a skill known as Spark (3rd Job Skill) which enhances the spirit to attack more enemies. Secondly, most monsters in 1st Job can be killed in a maximum of 2 hits from Somersault Kick. Third, Lightning is kinda handy during 2nd Job since it will help you kill the remaining monsters should they have a few HP (Health) left after you execute your 2nd Job Offensive skill.

Tornado Uppercut (Active)

LV1: 18 MP, 318% Damage.
LV20: 24 MP, 375% Damage.
Skill Build: Everything maxed except Corkscrew Blow and Energy Blast.
1. Add 1 SP into Tornado Uppercut, Energy Charge and Energy Blast.
2. Max Knuckle Mastery, Dark Clarity and Physical Training.
3. Add 12 SP into Knuckle Booster.
4. Max Tornado Uppercut, Energy Charge and Knuckle Booster.
5. Dump remaining SP into Energy Blast.
6. No SP added into Corkscrew Blow.
Tornado Uppercut is maxed instead of Corkscrew Blow is because it has lower attack delay and it can hit monsters who are located far away from you. With that convenience, it allows a more efficient training especially monsters located on different platform levels. Therefore, add 1 SP into Tornado Uppercut as it will be Thunder Breaker 2nd Job primary skill for leveling. Also add 1 SP into Energy Charge (to take advantage of the passive effects during transformation) and Energy Blast (deals high damage against monsters with lots of health). Max your damage boosting skills (Knuckle Mastery, Dark Clarity, Physical Training) and add 12 SP into Knuckle Booster to speed up your attacks. Without early Knuckle Booster, most Thunder Breaker attack feels sluggish and usually getting bump into agitated monsters if you couldn’t kill them in the first attack. Finally, max Tornado Uppercut to boost its damage and Knuckle Booster to reduce the hassle to recast it so often. Dump the remaining skill points into Energy Blast. Even if the Energy Blast isn’t max, it still does pretty awesome damage for a 2 hit kill monster whereas Tornado Uppercut would probably take twice the time compared to Energy Blast at max level.

Skill Build: Everything maxed except Landlubber Blast.
1. Add 1 SP into Shark Wave, Buccaneer Blast and Landlubber Blast.
2. Max Buccaneer Blast, Opportunistic Fighter, Precision Strikes and Shark Wave.
3. Max Spark, Speed Infusion, Octopunch and Roll of the Dice.
Thunder Breaker 3rd Job Primary Attacking Skill will be Buccaneer Blast. However, this skill requires recharge. Therefore, add 1 SP into Shark Wave and Landlubber Blast to help with the recharging. Both of these skills have their pros and cons. Use Shark Wave when enemies are far away from you whereas Landlubber to dish out massive damage at close range. Most of the time, I would use Landlubber Blast on higher level monsters (takes 2 to 3 hits to kill) in a tightly pack area. Landlubber attacking range is 2 times shorter compared to Shark Wave and it could not affect enemies who are on a platform separated even if they are on the same level/height as you.
