Luk > Agi for GC saders

9 Luk gives you perfect dodge, a bit of ATK and resistance to certain status.

9 Agi just gives you a miserable amount of flee and ASPD

Late reply.

I always make an acolyte/priest to constantly buff and heal the swordsman/crusader. That would help you a lot.

50 to 60 STR (with bonus) is not a bad idea, as GC also benefits from the stat.

The damage formula is: (ATK+MATK) * (100% + 40 * skill lvl%)

You can check it here. http://irowiki.org/classic/Grand_Cross

If you plan going to job 50 you should at least put some points into magnum break.

I usually do STR to 50 (with bonus), base DEX and VIT to 30, and then go full INT for bash and magnum break spam when leveling as a swordsman. You can easily kill stacks of 5 to 10 wolves with magnum break, use strawberries until you have enough INT to disregard magnum break's 30 SP cost.

Wolves are a good place to level up until you change to crusader.

If this is your first character in a server, to ease your leveling as a crusader remember that you can take 2 Rosary (Luk+2 Mdef+5, 15.000z each) from Prontera's church and unslotted Greaves (5 def, 54.000z) plus Legion Plate Armor (requires level 70, 11 def, 94.000z) from Yuno until you can purchase or loot better items.

If you will always have a priest behind you (100% uptime dual login or friend) there's no real need to have heal on your crusader build and you can rush to GC level 10 directly to later level guard. If you are going to play without a priest however, make sure to grab heal before GC.

As soon as you become a crusader you will be comfortable in different maps than wolves thanks to your increased SP and HP pool. For example amatsu level 1 where you can level with bash until you either have heal to bomb the firelock soldiers or low level GC to mob miyabi dolls depending on your choice for your first skill. If you are alone and have the bad luck to run into one of the 2 shinobi you will most probably die, but you can kill it with the help of a priest.

Once you have GC level 10 you will be ready to farm either glast heim or niff where you will stay until level 99.

If you play without a priest and you are still on low cost leveling remember to always bring some of the strawberries you got from the wolves to save you on tight situations. If money is not an issue bring all the strawberries you have, as well as the ones from every single newbie farming wolves~

Thanks to your INT one strawberry would restore you around 31 to 40 SP, which in turn would allow you to cast one more heal lv7 to 10. That means you get 1200+ HP that increases as you level for a single item with a weight of 2.

When you farm raydrics and get your first card, if you sell it at 4 to 8mill that means you can purchase 4.000 to 8.000 straberries at 1.000z each (usually more than enough to get yourself three or four extra cards and quite some levels).

Eluniums from raydrics drop at 5.3% here, and each elunium sells for around 30.000z to 45.000z. So, 20 raydrics should average you one elunium, which you can turn into even more strawberries for your leveling.

Long Live Strawberries~

Good luck, Have Fun~
