    Xenon can be kinda squishy. Cedes is over rated IMO. (Similar to AB, too many of them lol.) But I'm biasedly in favor of shade lol.

    if u plan to master crafting for meister eqs (which is tedious but highly recommended)... to compensate for the squishiness of xenon i suggest to go for armor crafting... u will get tonnes of +DEF from set effects that will easily see your xenon thru...

    just take AB... AB is consider one of the most squishy class... even more squishy than xenon... but my AB reset from pure STR to pure DEX after i gotten my DEF meister eqs set.... now she got plenty of DEF that can rival my DS...

    oh wow... ic.... SEA has silently gotten xenon rebalanced in the last update... hence yes xenons are hitting as hard... if not harder than ABs.... personally i'd go with xenon if i were u (although liz will go with shade)... and since u are VIP 19 then it's a non-issue about being squishy...

    why not consider DS...? if i am not wrong... got ppl mention b4 in kpms... DS are winning there... so if u talking about "better future" ... once DS get rebalanced with no-cooldown demon impact.. they are going to own...

    I'm vip 19 as well :p buuuuut I'm not sure if sea is the same as global.

    I've had a couple people tell me they don't bother putting effort into shade since they know I'll always keep improving my character and they get discouraged or feel like a noob. Which makes me sad cause I wanna have more bad ass shade buddies :D:rolleyes:

    hey... i'd love to be a bad ass shade too once i get master crafting for him...! and of cos i know i cannot be as bad ass as u or many other shades... but i pride myself as a permanent VIP 0 and still competiting with other VIP players... hehe... i'm learning to love my shade too as i learn to use him to farm OSSS from GTW dungeon to complement my AB who farms in ruins dungeon...

    oh... geez... that explains his almost maxed out +12 eqs... doesn't playpark do anything about him and his guild...? :/

    global used to have hackers problem too... but i think nexon basically rooted the problem away mostly....?

    depends on dungeon... large dungeons like ToT it suxxxx cos it's not able to move around fast.... but small dungeons like in gorge it is excellent at farming...

    Mostly. There are a few still lingering. A sad life they must live to have to resort to hack because they're just not good enough.

    I have two xenons :) well actually I have a LOT of xenons since I used them to farm lower level stones on auto lol. But I have 2 that are 150 (actually one may still be 148 I dunno.) I wanted to love xenon. I wanted to turn one into a main on one of my accounts, but even after rebalance I just don't feel that it's a well balanced class unless you put a LOT of work into it. If you go the defense route with Meister you lose out on attack possibilities. Finding a blend of Dex/Str that makes you a tank but still gives you accuracy was tough. I dunno. Just ended up frustrating me more than anything.
    Shade was the opposite. It was smooth from the start aside from the jump. Well, coming up with an adequate build before we got the rebalance was a little challenging, but I made do. I do struggle with TOT dungeons if I'm by myself because of hour glasses. Otherwise, I clear dungeons with a quickness, just zipping around using spin slash. You get used to the jump. Or lack of jump. I call the jump a fairy fart hahahahah. Poof. Poof. Poof. That's what it looks like
