    Why max Crusher first? seeing as you at level 75 a DK heads to wolf spiders, and then himes, those maps are well more suited for fury and so using buster/crusher in them just makes leveling a lot slower.

    Because he didn't write a hybrid portion of this guide. It's purely spear. Spear fury is only good for luring the spiders and himes then using crusher to kill them so he wrote to Max crusher instead. I was considering writing a hybrid guide but I don't think there's enough demand for it so.

    That typo lol. I mean why max crusher first instead of fury.
    I asked that eventho it's a spear only build. Having been hybrid, at level 90 with both pole arm fury and spear crusher maxed, pole arm fury was way better. Being a hybrid means you get from 70-120 like TWICE as fast(unless you're leeching your DK in which point it doesn't matter). Optimally you'd be hybrid up to 4th job and then reset PA fury to spear fury. Let me know what you think.

    That's exactly what I'm saying. That's what I did for all of third job lol. I'm just telling you he didn't care about hybrid and whether or not it was faster, he wrote it from a spear only viewpoint. He drops pole arm fury in order to have dragons blood and some extra in sacrifice I guess. Both of which I find to be useless with sacrifice being okay occasionally for getting into berserk range. Any DK that asks me for advice I always recommend going pole arm fury instead of spear crusher. Dragons blood is made useless from warrior elixirs since it doesn't stack with Hex of the Beholder att buff. Which you don't add for that reason. So I have max spear and pole arm fury both. Just don't have dragons blood is all.

    That's what I thought. Except the spear fury instead of dragon's blood part, didn't think about that. Thanks.

    Yep, that's exactly what I have. I can utilize both whenever I want. I mainly just use pole arm for farming items but I used to use it for grinding until I was ~125.

    Is 11 pts of Sacrifice enough to trigger berzerk with dragon roar when you are full hp?

    Two roars is plenty too. It depends on if you have level 20 or 30 berserk though. With berserk 30 it's not enough, so probably not with 20 either. Sacrifice is only useful when you're just barely over the range. Otherwise roar is more efficient.
    Also your HP affects it. If you have high hp, it's less likely to get in range with sacrifice since the damage to you take is based on your damage and not hp. I've always found sacrifice to be a circumstantial skill rather than a crucial one.
    Sorry if it doesn't make sense the way I wrote it. I was trying to remember it all while grocery shopping.

    Why is using a hybrid twice as fast to train with from lvl 70-120. Also MapleBentoMapleBento for spearman, should you max pole arm mastery and booster and just leave Iron Will at level 11? (PS you should def write a hybrid guide :D)

    so im not understanding youre conversation

    (isnt spear better than polearm, for endgame?)

    so are you guys saying that maxing polearm crusher will help level faster?
    but ideally, at endgame, you want to max fury spear and spear crusher? <--- or no to this?

    Alright, maybe I'll write a Hybrid DK guide then. The reason PA is faster leveling for, really, 30-120, is because from levels 30-70 (before you have crusher for 100% stab attack and fury for 100% slash) you're statistically more likely to slash than you are to stab, with the ratio being 3:2 slash:stab. That means if you're using a pole arm that you'll do more damage more often and thus kill faster netting you more exp.

    For 70-120, its a little different since your skills can decide if you slash or stab. I say to skip out on max sacrifice and dragons blood (since you can buy warrior elixirs anyway) because you can mob more monsters using Fury and if you use Pole Arm Fury then you'll be doing the most effective damage (since you get the pole arm slash damage bonus). While crusher hits 3 times on 3 mobs, the animation is slow and so are all the spears except for Sky Ski. Pole Arm Fury animation, however, is lightning quick and thanks to summer event you have access to the amazing item: Purple Surfboard. Even without this item I argue that PA Fury is faster for 3rd job, and it is, but especially with this item. The high att stat + fast attacking speed, with an already fast animation, is awesome for mobbing at flat maps like Himes and Galloperas, which are your primary grind spots for 90-120. Or 105/108 if you plan to leech. It's also awesome for Wolf Spiders for 72-90 since the platforms are hills that go downwards and let you just mob to your heart's content.

    For second job, referring to Iron Will AGGreyAGGrey , I actually maxed HP recovery and then dumped the rest into Iron Will because I never use that skill anyway. Figured I'd just put it into a passive skill rather than waste it on a pointless active skill.

    Back to end game content. Spear Fury is still added for extra mobbing and low-HP killing potential just as Losjington pointed out. Sacrifice can still serve it's purpose when you need it and Blood is optional to begin with so I don't see why not.Most people get stuck in 2nd-3rd job range so speeding it up really lowers the level of agony you feel in those levels. Pure spear is fine if you go that route but I'll always argue that Hybrid comes out on top.

    (Also, Spear Crusher is 100% maxed and add 0 to Pole Arm Crusher. In case that wasn't clear).
