:: Full Support Shaman Guide ::

I. Introduction

I usually don’t post in forums (This is actually my first) but because of the jumbled up topics in this forum I thought of making my own compilation of the posts in this forum.
My very own character in RAN is also a shaman that I aspire to be a full support type.
So… on with the topic…

II. Stat Build

Levels 1-100 :
This is easy😛 because all you need to do is pump up all those stats to INT or in your skill window: SPI so that you could get all the skills needed by an FS without worrying about the required stat points.

Levels 101-… :
Upon reaching this level bracket you should allocate your remaining stat points to POW(power) or STR(strength) to get the skill Gift of Life. (This is found at the POW skills tab in your skill window).

Levels …-… : (NOTE: Sorry I don’t know the exact level to master the skill: Gift of Life)
Upon getting at least 160 POW to master the Gift of Life skill, pump up your VIT(vitality) next to boost up your HP(hit points) more. VIT boosts up your HP by 3 every point(a 1:3 ratio).
Imagine this: 100VIT = 300HP nice🙂
DEX(dexterity) only boosts up your DEF(defense) by 1 by 10 DEX(a 10:1 ratio) so it only pumps up your DEF only a little bit. Imagine this: 100DEX = 10DEF not rewarding isn’t it?

III. Skill Build

(NOTE: This is the part where I scavenged almost every post to get reliable data XP .)

Level 1-76:

  • Vampiric Attack – Level 3
  • Breath of Life – Level 4 (Self-heal, can recover HP on items)
  • Sacrificial Ritual – Level 3 (Serves as a prerequisite for your Heaven’s Treatment skill)
  • Inspire – Level 2
  • Fortify – Master at level 10 (Gives 10% DEF, results are best seen on high DEF characters)
  • Arcane Recovery – NA (MP or mana point regenerator, can recover MP on items)
  • Enchaned Vampiric Attack – NA (Spear Guardian is better)
  • Revitalize – Level 7 (Prevents Poison at level 7 no need to master)
  • Haste – NA
  • Heaven’s Treatment – Master at level 10 (Party heal, a must have)

Level 77-107:

  • Confusion Strike – Master at level 10 (Boosts evasiveness, a must have)
  • Haste – Level 3 (Prerequisite for Massive Haste)
  • Massive Haste – Master at level 10 (For escaping or chasing opponents)
  • Berserk Aura – Master at level 10 (Faster attack speed

Level 108-147:

  • Inspire – Level 4 (Fast SP or skill point regeneration at Level 4 no need to recast over and over)
  • Magma Explosion – Level 1 (1000DMG or damage on mobs)
  • Resurrection – Master at level 1 (Player still lose EXP or experience)
  • Spear Guardian’s Wrath – Master at level 10 (Attack skill)
  • Gift of Life – Master at level 10 (Get from the POW tab at your skill window)
  • Paralyzed – NA (No damage only makes your opponent immobile get at your own desire)

IV. Tips and Tricks

Leveling a pure FS shaman is a great pain and requires big amounts of patience.
When you are havig a hard time, you can do these tips:

    1. Have other players tank you. (a friend’s help is also nice)


    2. Add skills on your ATTACK tab on your skill window. Then, use Oblivion A potions afterwards.

V. Disclaimer

All of these information are acquired by browsing in posts at the Philippine RAN forums and english Malaysian RAN forums.
All suggestions, scrutinizations and comments are all accepted.
Painstakingly corrected spelling errors. Comment if any still remain.
Might still edit this guide for it to be eye entertaining but I’m tired so I only got to place green colors.😛
Might also add picture clips of skills for added info and judgement.
I wish the GM’s to pin this so that the other newbies would not have a hard time finding this. Thanks in advance.🙂

  1. this is my suggestion for shamans who are very supportive and want to have at least few attacks,, this is only based on my experience, if you want to have an area of effect attack, i suggest (remember, based on experience) that you get a frost incantation( for me, one of the best attacks before lvl 70). to get one, you must have a skill dragon of cold icicle(1 target only, but can easily freeze an enemy), which has a skill level of 2 (to get frost incantation), but, to get dragon cold icicle, you must have incineration level 2( i think)… and thats it!!! no need to learn other skills… but at level 1, frost incantation only has 3 targets, if you’re contented with that, then let your frost incantation remain as lvl 1,, but if you want 4 targets, have to make it lvl 3(as far as i remember)…why i like frost incantation better than gaia strike? well, 2 reasons…
    1. longer cooldown
    2. longer time to cast the skill
    ..and they’re just the same w/ FI, 3 targets at lvl 1… ^^ have fun… oh ya, sorry if this is out of the topic “FS shaman”…

    question time!!!, in the case of a shaman attack, should i get amplified effect? does serpents venom have an area of effect?is it right to get enhanced vampiric attack? and what do you mean by “master at level 10?” what kind of level do you mean? is it a must to have berserk aura? its just that it’s not for the whole party, its like the arcane recovery, buffing one by one… oh yea.. and in the case of my lvl5 revitalize, it prevents…

    burn
    faint
    paralyze
    freeze
    chaos…
    next level…. curse

    what is chaos? curse?

  2. and with the 2 reasons, i mean the gaia,, it has longer cooldown and casting time, (even with the same level as my FI)

    Comment by mark gonzaga (name ko sa ran ay ==EMODALE== sa alab...) — September 2, 2008 @ 9:57 pm

  3. i just found out lately that magma explosion has 6 targets at level 1 (around 1200 damage on mobs), so you may get it instead of the frost incantation which may hassle you because it requires DCC and DCC requires incineration. ( and FI only has 4 target at level 1) imagine…..

    incineration…. 1 skill point
    making it level 2…. 1 skill point
    DCC…. 6 skill points
    making it lvl 2… 1 skill point
    FI… 8 skill points…. (just let it remain as lvl 1,, which only has 3 targets)

    ===========

    magma explosion…… 8 skill points, ( and let it remain as lvl 1 as it has 6 TARGETS ALREADY AT LVL 1)

    ===========

    now compare…..

    learning FI…… it costs 17 skill points (total)
    learning ME…… it costs 8 skill point ONLY… ( and they have the same amt of dmg with FI being lvl3 and ME being lvl 1)..

    so see? you can save 9 skill points… sorry about the last tips i made… i wasn’t intelligent enough since i never saw a skill tree which shows the effect of the skills, the amt of targets, etc… hehe… ^^ .. and one question… does serpents venom have an area of effect dmg?

  4. Thanks Mark

  5. what does “curse” and “chaos” mean in the revitalize skill of the shaman? i followed what you said, let it remain as lvl 7 since there is no difference in mastering it, only the amt of time…. it says….

    ” prevents abnormal conditions” ,,, namely…

    petrochemical burn
    faint
    paralyze
    freeze
    chaos*
    curse*
    poison

    =======
    thats what it prevents on level 7… what does curse and chaos mean?

  6. di ko rin na-encounter yung 2 status na yan

    Comment by melfabro — September 12, 2008 @ 8:41 am

  7. oh well, and by the way, does serpent venom have an area of effect dmg? (like meteor smash, can hit many enemies)

    Comment by mark gonzaga (name ko sa ran ay ==EMODALE== sa alab...) — September 13, 2008 @ 6:27 am

  8. i think “curse” refers to the weaken and enhanced weaken skills of the attack shaman. I’ve played some games ma kapag cursed ka, ibig sabihin napababa ang def mo.

    chaos? i ito yung heaven’s judgment skill ng int archer.

  9. not so sure with chaos though.

    Comment by christiani — November 25, 2008 @ 3:50 pm

  10. regarding serpent’s venom, hindi siya area effect na gaya ng infernal punishment. though random yung matatamaan, directed pa rin yung attacks, gaya ng incineration at spear guardian’s wrath.🙂

  11. kuya im beginner in this game … tanong ko lang po “pano ko ba maukuha yung massive haste??”
