––––[The Asuran Compendium]–––– This guide will contain information and data from several players and sources including myself. I will attempt to make it the most comprehensive and thorough guide so both novice and experienced players will find some use in it. Most of the information will be directed towards a general build to handle all dungeons. I will not include builds that are specific such as for Reshpon, Tower of Despair, or Otherverse. This will be a PvE exclusive guide, I will leave PvP to someone who is higher qualified. I have quit DFO and as such will no longer be updating the guide. ––––[Table of Contents]–––– Introduction Useful Links Asura Lore Asura Synopsis/FAQs Game Terminology Skill Overview General Skills Common Skills: BM, SB Common Skills: Zerk, Asura Common Skill Upgrades Asura Non-Cube Skills Asura Cube Skills Asura Skill Upgrades Quest Point Passives Builds Game Mechanics Equipment Equipment Cont.

I've been using my asura since before SI, it is now lv70. I have played other classes as well previously, a summoner(49), WM(35) and striker(45) I mostly play PvE, as a result this guide will be exclusively PvE. If you would like help or have any questions about asuras feel free to PM me. ––––[Change Log]–––– 6/29/12: Updated useful links and asura synopsis to post-inno. 7/1/12: Updated C2 guides. 7/4/12: Updated build section. 7/8/12: Created patch changes section & updated general skills. 7/10/12: Updated quest point skills. 7/14/12: Updated common skills, common skill upgrades, & asura non-cube skills. 7/15/12: Updated asura cube skills. 7/23/12: Updated equipment section. 7/25/12: Included emblems & enchants in equipment section. 8/10/12: Added charts to synopsis section.
