So... I been trolling/raging/QQing/Flirting on forums and after 490 posts I thought "It's time to make something useful, so lets share a bit of my in-game knowledge."

So, lets start with the guide. I'll only post the 3 genie builds I know of and tell which classes more adaptable to them.

These are builds for PK, I will try to make a pve guide for genie later but pve skills are quite simple, a quick example would be full Magic/Vit genie with (Expel, Absolute Domain, Tree of Protection, Tangling Mire, etc)

Lets go back to the topic.

PROPER BUILDS

First you need a good genie with at least +110 Lucky Points. You also gotta pick a specific genie for each build, why? Let me give you an example.

If you're looking for skill effectiveness then you need a dex genie, the skills are going to be dex based obviously and the proper genie for this job is "Discipline or Longevity (Discipline will work better though)"  Why? because of the initial stats, since you are aiming to dex genie, these ones are perfect because they have the initial dex stat raised over the other stats, "and why is this good?" You may ask. Because after 40 points added, every build point added will take 2 of your level/lucky points gained, HERES an example.

"Looking for Dex genie build"

Lets say you have 80 points free and you want to add them to Dexterity on your genie.


Zeal = Initial 5 str, 3 Dex, 5 vit, 15 magic = +80 build points into dex the stats would end at 5 str, 63 Dex, 5 Vit and 15 magic.

While adding these points to a Longevity is another story...

Longevity = Initial 5 str, 15 dex, 5 vit, 3 magic = +80 build points into dex the stats would end at 5str, 75 Dex, 5 Vit, 3 Magic.

NOTE:Why ZEAL has 63 Dex?? Because once you've added 40 points to any stat, to add another build point you will need 2 level/Lucky points.

Also I wouldn't recommend you to craft normal genie gear (the one that is not made from Warsong Medals aka Warsong emblems) why? 'cause they only add +6 points to an specific stats while the one from warsong medals add +8 points divides by 2 stats.

How to craft Genie's gear.

First go to the NPC "Watcher of the earth" there is one at every main city (Archosaur has 2 though)

You will also need Warsong Medals
You need exactly 12 of them (since every genie gear is 3 Medals) and pick the gear that more suits to your genie build.

The medals can be bought from Boutique @ 30 silver each or farmed @ Warsong City, players sell them as well too (check the current prices).

Now that you have the idea of how to make a proper build to your genie, we can move on to the skills along with the build. :tiger-15:

SKILLS

Well, I'm not going to post all the genie skills, only the ones that are useful IMO.

Str Genie build = Damage
I recommend to add up to 110 str number, the rest into vit/magic.

You can use either Infliction or Zeal

Which skills do I add?
First, keep in mind that this genie is str based, so a str genie skill suits perfectly to it. I will share what kind of skills I do add to this kind of genie. These are the basic skills a STR based genie should have. (I'll add alternative skills at the end of the topic)

Relentless Courage
Energy 50 (+10 per skill level)
Stamina 180
Instant

NOTE:This shit is dangerous, you can take your genies str to 160 (I've tested it) and this skill will bring you from 2.0 to 4.0 attack speed (I use it to pop out of stealth with full r8 and you zerk/crit around 15k per hit + 4.0 attack speed + double spark = Target is dead in 4 seconds). Also, I only recommend to level it to LEVEL 2/4 only, it only last 4 seconds but this skill is OP, why only lvl2? because Max lvl sucks too much energy = 140 energy, and it would leave you with no chance to use any other genie skill.

NOTE: This skill is to make you immune to wood damage (Aka some venomancer attacks/ and most of the mystic attacks) so is like another Absolute Domain but for those specific classes.

Heart of Steel

NOTE: This skill is to make you immune to METAL attacks (aka most of the cleric attacks/ ARCHER magical attacks and the scary METAL combo from SEEKERS), then again, it works like Absolute Domain against the magical attack from the already mentioned classes.

NOTE: Totally recommended for PSYCHICS while fighting sins. Use it right after you use Psychics Will, a good sin will try to go through your physical immunity with Condensed Thorn (Sin water based skill) so with Oxygen bubble he wont be able to do anything.

Will Surge
Energy 80
Stamina 500
Instant

Requisite Class All

Protects you with the power of Wood.
Makes you immune to silence effects for 5.2 seconds. (+0.2 seconds per skill level)

Requisite Class All

___________________________________________________

ESSENTIAL SKILLS (can be used on any genie build)

Absolute Domain
Range 5 meters

Cooldown 180  seconds

Makes you immune to all damage for 5.0 seconds
and immune to immobilization for 2 seconds afterwards.

Expel
Range 20 meters
Energy 125
Stamina 275
Instant
Cooldown 1  second
Requisite Class All

Expels the target from the physical world.
This causes the target to be silenced, but
it also grants them immunity to physical
damage for 9.0 seconds.

Dexterity: Every 40 Genie Dexterity points increases the duration by 1 second.

NOTE: TIP: if you get sealed by any other class, you could time the seal along with expel and use it before the seal ends, this will leave the physical immunity only without the seal, so you will be able to cast skills or attack. Will look like psychics will. (Only recommended to be used on Magic/vit build due to the big amount of energy drained but it can be used on other builds)

This is my first guide, hope some of you guys find what you are looking for here. Coming soon : Assassin guide  :))
(I will add some SSs of Watcher of the Earth and some genies later)

Relentless Courage
Energy 50 (+10 per skill level)
Stamina 180
Instant
Cooldown 30  seconds
Requisite Class All

A courageous song that
improves your battle prowess.
Increases your attack speed by 5%,
your movement speed by 5%,
and your channeling speed by 5%.
Lasts for 3.5 seconds. (+0.5 Seconds per skill level)

Strength: Every 4 Genie Strength points increase the attack speed by 1% more.
Strength: Every 4 Genie Strength points increase the movement speed by 1% more.
Dexterity: Every 15 Genie Dexterity points increase channeling speed by 1% more.

NOTE:This shit is dangerous, you can take your genies str to 160 (I've tested it) and this skill will bring you from 2.0 to 4.0 attack speed (I use it to pop out of stealth with full r8 and you zerk/crit around 15k per hit + 4.0 attack speed + double spark = Target is dead in 4 seconds). Also, I only recommend to level it to LEVEL 2/4 only, it only last 4 seconds but this skill is OP, why only lvl2? because Max lvl sucks too much energy = 140 energy, and it would leave you with no chance to use any other genie skill. ONLY FOR MELEE


Really great Guide Jolhans, very comprehensive and will no doubt answer a lot of questions from the genie noobs.

Just with the bit I quoted; if you're a sin and you are 2.86 APS base (Dragon gears with int tome) Relentless can make you 5aps base if you have enough STR on your genie. I think my Sin has 138 STR genie points and I can be 5 aps. It's great having a Sage spark up going at 5 aps for PvE. The problem with using Relentless in PvP though (If you maxed it out like me for PvE) is that it uses pretty much all your energy which leaves your genie dry which could be dangerous when countered. Also I know that using wind sheild when demon sparked actually drops your aps, I dont know if its the same for relentless though.

Thank you for this guide, it certainly will help me a great deal

Yes, if you demon spark and use rentless courage the speed buff from spark will be overwrited by rentless.

About the massive energy drain, well thats the point of leaving it @ level 2, you will be 5.0 for 4 seconds, will only drain 60 energy and if you use it in the perfect time, is enough to kill your opponent.

Also, thanks to all the nice replys, glad it helped a bit :normal-1:

Btw the tests I made with Relentless Courage are, If you're 2.86 base you need exactly 132 str to make the skill bring you from 2.86 to 5.0. If you are 3.33 base with 110 str is more than enough to take you to 5.0
Thats a great guidie, thankies  :normal-40:
