So you want to be lazy and learn how to play as a Creator. Welcome to the club, you're not alone. Table of Contents Skills and Skill Mechanics Trait Point (TP) Skills Equipment and Avatar Options Tips, Otherverse, and Closing Introduction The Creator is probably one of the most unique classes in Dungeon Fighter Online. So unique, that it is the only one of its kind. The Creator uses a very unorthodox layout as far as controls go, and the gameplay style is very familiar to some MMOs. Creators are considered "a lazy class" by some due to their "point-and-click" gameplay of the Creator. There's a lot more to the Creator than meets the eye, and hopefully this guide will help people see that. Disclaimer This is by no means THE guide to follow when picking up the Creator. Everything talked about here is mostly based on opinion and therefore, you may or may not agree. You should what you think is best, based on how you play. Gameplay Style and Mechanics Most of the basics can be found on the Creator Wiki page, but I'll go over it here as well. As stated earlier, the Creator plays very differently from all the other characters in DFO's roster. Instead of Arrow Keys, it is the W, A, S, and D keys. These will be the Creator's form of movement. Spacebar is now the Creator's jump key. To Attack, you move the mouse at an enemy and click to generate a small explosion. This attack has no elemental damage, and is the Creator's Basic form of offense. It is commonly mistaken as Magic-based by beginners, but the Basic Attack clicks is considered a Physical hit that is scaled off Strength. It is also a Percent Damage rather than Fixed Damage (Credit goes here for that tidbit about Basic Attack clicks). Creators can click anywhere on the screen to attack objects, enemies, and pick up items. Holding down Left Alt will change the cursor from attack to normal mode. The reverse happens when a dungeon is clear. This does not always work. It helps to safely pick up items without setting off an attack while in a gauge. Normal attacks are also possible with an active gauge, provided that the click slot is empty. Picking items is as simple as clicking on the item on the ground or walking over it and pressing X. Creators are also a Fixed Damage class, with the exception of Basic Attacks being Percent Damage. They also use broomsticks thanks to Broomstick Control (I don't know why they have that...) and wear Plate Armor. Despite wearing Plate Armor, they are by no means tankier than other Female Mage classes. To increase your damage, you will need to find weapons with high Independent Attack. stat, as well as sub-equipment with Independent Attack. The Creator's skills scale off their Independent Attack Power. Due to being a fixed damage class, Reinforcement is not necessary, but can be done to make Basic Attack clicks stronger. Refining is best for the Creator, but that is not available until you are able to enter Shonan, which can be accessed at level 69 or above. Creators do not rely on attack speed. The only attack speed comes from your ability to click fast. Moving the mouse while clicking for skills will speed up your gauge consumption, rather than clicking in place. For skills that require dragging, dragging the mouse while holding the button will consume the gauge faster at larger drag distances. These techniques are useful for dishing out more damage, but will consume your gauge faster. Keep an eye out your click speed, drag distance and gauge consumption. The last thing you want is to leave yourself without skills to use in a tight spot. Creators also utilize Casting speed when activating the gauge. After that, it pretty much depends on your click and drag speeds. I would not recommend investing in Casting and Attack speeds. It's not really worth it since the gauges activate rather quickly.
