No game mechanics overview in this topic.

This guide will describe both PvE and PvP(GW) roles of VIT Spear Knight, other builds are not in scope of this guide, but it doesn't mean that they are worse or better.

- Riding 1, Cavalry Mastery 5

Stat Build:
STR: 92
INT: 5
AGI: 13
DEX: 44
VIT: 90
LUK: 1

PVE Total stats:
Blessing 10, Increase Agi 10
STR: 120, DEX: 60, VIT: 100
HP: 17551, SP: 388, DEF: 51, MDEF: 0, Neutral Element Resist: 20%

PVP DEF Total stats:
Blessing 10, Increase Agi 10
STR: 120, DEX: 60, VIT: 100
HP: 19147, SP: 388, DEF: 40, MDEF: 0, Demi-Human Resist: 40%, Neutral Element Resist: 20% / 10% + 10% Ranged Resist (Note that most magic considered as ranged skill)

PVP MDEF Total stats:
Blessing 10, Increase Agi 10, Endure 10
STR: 112, DEX: 60, VIT: 100
HP: 17551, SP: 388, DEF: 36, MDEF: 31, Demi-Human Resist: 40%, Neutral Element Resist: 10%, Ranged Resist: 20%

Few Words regarding some items:
+9 Hood + Orc Baby Card - Hood is easy to get and can be equipped with any class, Orc Baby Card is best (in my opinion) garment card for any class except PvE Hunter. Reasons obvious +15% Neutral Res and +15 Flee. Hoods also much easy to get comparing to Mufflers and Manteau.
DEF: 1 vs 2 vs 4; %Chance to Get: 1% vs 0.25% vs 0.1%; Monster/LvL/HP: (Coco/17/817) vs (Sohee/33/5,628) vs (Wraith/53/10,999)
So you can be much more productive if you hunt for Hood and +9 Hood provides 3% less defense then +9 Manteau

+9 Sandals + Firelock - same here, easy to get, all classes can use it

Padded Armor - same here, but can be equipped with Swordsman, Thief, Merchant classes only.

+10 Pike + 2 x Vadon Card + 2 x Kaho Card - used for lvl 70-90 farming on Minouros to also get card. Lvl 90-99 fastest solo leveling on Majouros. 4 BB needed to kill it, 5 sec battle duration average and total damage you take with PvE gear is 1776 with Shield + Orc Warrior: 1272. So you can use Meat/Yellow Potion to heal.
+10 Pike + 2 x Orc Lady Card + Hydra Card + Vadon Card - Optional, you can actually use PvP Pike to level on High Orcs quite effective: Spear Boomerang + Basic Attack + Counter Attack (total SP cost 13, no damage received). They also die in one hit of lvl 5-7 BB.

+5 Muramasa - 960 DPS on Emperium, helpfull when you reach it.

Tips & Tricks:
- Counter Attack actually very usefull. You can cancel basic attack animation with it having much more ASPD then you actually have. All you need is to face mob and use skill just in time when you start rising your spear, this will cancel animation but will deal damage from attack followed by Crit from Counter Attack. This will also reset your attack cycle so basically clicking on the mob again will result in another starting animation of basic attack that can be canceled, so basically you have to use skill + click mob for steady stream of damage numbers. Can be used with all weapons.

- Don't start lvling Knight unless you have all or most PvE gear.

Just a note... 2x Orc Lady, Hydra, Vadon is better than 1x Orc Lady with Mino. In most cases adding the size card would be better but because Orc Lady card is 30% instead of 20 it ends up being better.

Agreed, in 4 slot weapon 2x Elemental + 2x Race does more damage, in 3 slot thou you should use Size cards.
