Swordman Skill Build Guide: Everything maxed.
1. Slash Blast (1), War Leap (3)
2. War Leap (MAX)
3. Slash Blast (MAX)
4. Warrior Mastery (MAX)
5. Iron Body (MAX)
You gain 5 SP upon completing 1st job advancement. Warrior primary attacking skill will be Slash Blast. However, you will not have sufficient SP to max all skills in 1st job. Therefore, cap Slash Blast at Level 19/20 once you have maxed War Leap to perform 1HKO (1-hit KO on monsters). Max War Leap before Warrior Mastery because it is much faster than speed walking. Also War Leap allows you to jump from 1 platform to the other, making training and traveling much convenient. Then, max Warrior Mastery for the passive bonus speed, jump and critical rate. Finally max, Iron Body so you can reduce damage inflicted by enemies. The reason why we max Iron Body instead of Slash Blast is because Slash Blast will be replaced with another powerful attacking skill at 2nd job, 3rd and 4th job whereas Iron Body can be use simultaneously with other buff skills for extra defense regardless different job advancements.
