Notes

Another guide written by JesusRidesAUnicorn, this time for building up your Dawn Warrior. This is a work in progress, written as I build up my own Dawn Warrior.

Dawn Warrior Basics

General Description

With the massive strength and powerful physique, Dawn Warriors vanquish the enemy in close proximity. They are accompanied by Sol, the spirit of light, especially in combat. Only those equipped with a burning hear, sharp eyes, an even sharper blade, and undying loyalty to the empress are qualified to become a Dawn Warrior.

Pros

  • Only class (besides Warriors and Pirates) to get a mob skill at 1st job
  • High amounts of damage
  • Highest amount of HP
  • Low HP pot usage
  • Fast training (mob training)

Cons

  • No range attack until 2nd job
  • Lowest amount of MP
  • High MP pot usage
  • Big pot burner (if training in mobs)
  • Insanely easy to KS

Starting Out

So you've decided to volunteer for the Knights of Cygnus eh? Think you got what it takes? Well, before you can be a Knight, you've got to start from the bottom and work your way there. All Cygnus Knights start as a Noblesse, the Knights' very own version of the Beginner. But don't worry, you won't be one for long. Just follow the Knights' training, and you'll be up to level 10 in no time, and ready to pick your class.

Noblesse Skill Build

Level 2-4: +1 to Three Snails

Level 5-7: +1 to Nimble Feet

I've found these build is pretty much the best build out there. This is because at low levels Three Snails really helps with killing far away monsters (and since the update in which this skill doesn't need any shells anymore, its good for leeching if you always miss monsters) Then Nimble is handy in the first job until you get soul runner just for getting to places.
