I'll be updating and Improving This
*Note* - Barely anything in this guide contains my own original ideas, it is instead an accumulation of the experiences of all FB's. So props to all those FB's who share their knowledge ^.^

About Force Blader:
-Hometown is Green Despair
-The Force Blader is a "Hybrid" that balances sword and magic skills.
-Attacks are Sword Skills while Buffs/Debuffs are magic.
-Force Bladers equip Katanas and Orbs and use the Battle set for balanced defense and defense rate to fit the Force Blader's balanced build by default, but due to their balanced stats they can easily wear any gear that is not class-specific.
-Force bladers have a unique balance between magical skills and sword skills.
Stats to add:
-Every level up you will gain 5 stat points to add
-Rank-Up Requirements are there for you to follow
-Every 10 levels you are given the opportunity to increase your class rank (Rank-Up).
-Increasing class rank is essential for obtaining special skills and sometimes give you hefty rewards as well. At levels 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60, you must have the minimum stats that your character window (C) provides.
-After level 60, the stat requirement for class up is gone, so you can start to branch off in whatever stat build you want.
-Force Bladers generally focus on DEX, after 60 meet requirements for gears then pump the remaining stats into DEX.
*Note* - As you can see DEX>STR end of discussion.
*Note* - Weapons are never class specific, but Shadow Titanium, Terragrace, SigMetal, and Forcium armors are class specific.
*Note* - Force Blader gear choices are open ended.
-Orb vs. Crystal
The requirement for crystal is the same as the requirement for the same grade battlesuit, aim for crystal when possible.
Katana vs. Blade
- Blade requires an extra chunk of strength, katana tends to be more optimal but if you choose to use a blade for whatever reason (better stats/looks) it won't kill your stats.
What Armor to Use
-Due to a Force Blader's balanced stats they will be able to easily be able to wear any gear that is not class-specific. The biggest debate at the osm lvl is Battle vs. Armor, Armor has higher defense which is better for PVP but takes a hit to defense rate, me personally... Battle is too smexy not to use =P. Once again what armor pieces you use is pretty much open ended.
Aura and Battle Mode (BM):
Aura and Battle mode are skills which allow the user to power up within a short period of time
*NOTE* - Some skill can't be used in battle mode
A battle aura is basically a temporary super buff.
All of your stats are boosted for a period of time to help you kill more effectively.
Auras have different elements based on how you answer the series of questions they ask you. So in a sense,
your preferences should end you up with your favorite element.
Element available is Earth,Fire,Wind,Water,Ice and Lighting
*NOTE* - Please note that the elements are PURELY GRAPHICAL.
The element you choose does not affect the stats you get and any advantages over other elements
BM1 (Obtained after lvl 20 Rank-Up quest)
- This mode allow user to cast buff skill onto the user with magic attacking skill for short period of time meaning if the user cast aqua cannon,it will change into a buff each element attack will be transform into a buff base on the element.
- The Highest Corresponding Magic Skill is auto casted. You have the option to activate a corresponding magic skill to recast if you wish.
*Note* - For all the FB's out there I see doing this... You CAN'T MF a FB in BM1... FB's gain chunk of mana in BM1...
Effects of Each Magic Skill
Attack (Force Enchant) - Magic, Ice, Fire, Lightning
Defense Rate (Wind Movement) - Wind
Defense (Earth Guard) - Earth
Hp,Mp,Hp recovery (Aqua Vitality) - Water
-As you can see, I listed Magic, Ice, Fire and Lightning together, because they are all attack buffs and cannot be stacked.
*Must Have Magic Skills for BM1* - Lightning Cannon, Wind Cannon, Stone Cannon, Aqua Cannon
-The higher the magic attack is, the higher the effect of BM1 buffs.
-So basically you can have 4 buffs at 1 time, which is the same as your normal magic buffs,but stronger
*Note* - Just a little something from someone who played in EP1, the animations you see in BM1 were the original Buff Animations for FB in EP1. I noted the corresponding buffs to each magic skill.
Battle mode 2 (Obtained after level 50 Rank-Up quest)
Note: The original BM2 of a cannon was changed to sword attacks activated through normal attack.
More Info On This Later
Bonus Skill of Battle mode 2 (Obtained with BM2)
Prismatic Blade Cannon- this skill can be casted at battle mode 2 ONLY
-This skill is one of the best AOE dmg skill a FB can get at lvl 50,which at lvl 50 it self,it could 1 hit KO moscutter queen,lug queen and many dungeon monster,to help you finish your quest faster.
-Though force bladers have a bumpy road up, they even out with all the other classes in the end.
*Note* - BM1 = great tanking, BM2 = great vamping
