  • Can be ranged
  • Great team support
  • Mob control
  • Highest crit potential


Cons

  • Squishy
  • Can be a hard class to use
  • High maintenance
  • MP Shortage
  • Guzzles down MP pots
  • Takes heavy hits

» Builds

Now, before you go ahead and play your RS, you have to choose which build you'd want to use. As you know there isn't enough skill points to get every skill (yet). This is all based on my experience maining Rune Slayer and the PvP build is from UniqueNguyen. (An amazing RS player)

My build for Tier: http://brokendisc.web.fc2.com/elsword/skillsimulator/English/mk.html?58.115.5.1.1.5.5.5.5.5.1.3.5.0.0.3.5.0.5.0.5.3.5.5.0.5.0.5.5.5.5.0.3.5.5.5

PvP: http://brokendisc.web.fc2.com/elsword/skillsimulator/English/mk.html?56.112.5.1.3.5.0.5.5.5.1.3.0.0.0.3.0.0.5.0.5.3.5.5.0.5.0.5.5.5.5.5.3.5.5.5.5

PvE: http://brokendisc.web.fc2.com/elsword/skillsimulator/English/mk.html?54.108.5.1.1.5.5.5.5.5.0.0.5.0.0.0.5.0.5.0.5.3.5.5.0.5.0.0.5.5.5.5.3.5.5.5

-----

- Assault Slash: A good physical move and the note you can get from an NPC quest. Although it was nerfed, I still like it.
- Kick: Useful for extending your combos and imo you shouldn't use it unless you got a b-slot
- Counter Attack+Mastery: More useful for PvP oriented RS but can be useful in PvE.
- Counter Chance: If you need to burn points then you should dump it in here.

» Stats

Important stats you need!

50-70% Critical
20-23% Attack Speed
20-23% Accuracy
2000-3000 Add/Reduced DMG

Those stats are what you should always try to hit. Stats will make or break a Rune Slayer and under-equipped Rune Slayers will have a hard time surviving and slaying monsters. It won't be easy and it'll cost money so Rune Slayers may be very high maintenance.

Elements:

Resists
Dark resists and water resists are a must! Especially against the dark element. Why? Rune Slayers already have poor HP and they constantly need MP. Dark will definitely be a threat to you in PvP.

Enchants
Fire: For Rune Slayers, they have to kill their opponents before they take hits and the fire element speeds up the process by adding on damage from burn.

Poison: Does less damage over time than fire but it reduces speed

Dark: Not a great element for PvP oriented Rune Slayers since most people have dark resist. Decent element.

Water: A great element for PvE but just like dark, people in PvP will most likely have resist against it.

Wind: Pretty effective and allows you to dish out a lot of damage with your crit potential.

» End Notes

Rune Slayer is a fun class and I do enjoy maining him. Although, out of the three Elboy paths, Rune Slayer has it the hardest. If you plan on maining a Rune Slayer, I wish you luck. It will be a pain but I think he's fun enough to the point that he will be worth your while. Reckless Fist is also a fun class and if Rune Slayer doesn't suit you, RF might.
