Have you ever, at any one time, had the feeling that life is bad, real bad, and you wish you were in another situation?

You find life make things difficult for you, work sucks, life sucks, and everything seems to go wrong...

Read the following story... it may change your views about life:

After a conversation with one of my friends, he told me despite taking 2 jobs, he brings back barely above 1K per month, he is happy as he is.

I wonder how he can be as happy as he is considering he has to skimp his life with the low pay to support a pair of old parents, in-laws, a wife, 2 daughters and the many bills of a household.

He explained that it was through one incident that he saw in India... that happened a few years ago when he was really feeling low and touring India after a major setback.

He said that right in front of his very eyes he saw an Indian mother chop off her child's right hand with a chopper. The helplessness in the mother's eyes, the scream of pain from the innocent 4-year-old child haunted him until today.

You may ask why did the mother do so; had the child been naughty, had the child's hand been infected?? No, it was done for two simple words - - -TO BEG!

The desperate mother deliberately caused the child to be handicapped so that the child could go out to the streets to beg.

Taken aback by the scene, he dropped a piece of bread he was eating half-way. And almost instantly, flock 5 or 6 children swamped towards this small piece of bread which was covered with sand, robbing bits from one another. The natural reaction of hunger.

Stricken by the happenings, he instructed his guide to drive him to the nearest bakery. He arrived at two bakeries and bought every single loaf of bread he found in the bakeries. The owner was dumbfounded but willingly sold everything. He spent less than $100 to obtain about 400 loaves of bread (this is less than $0.25 per loaf) and spent another $100 to get daily necessities.

Off he went in the truck full of bread into the streets. As he distributed the bread and necessities to the children (mostly handicapped) and a few adults, he received cheers and bows from these unfortunate. For the first time in his life he wondered how people can give up their dignity for a loaf of bread which cost less than $0.25.

He began to tell himself how fortunate he is. How fortunate he is to be able to have a complete body, have a job, have a family, have the chance to complain what food is nice and what isn't nice, have the chance to be clothed, have the many things that these people in front of him are deprived of...

Now I begin to think and feel it, too! Was my life really that bad? Perhaps... no, I should not feel bad at all... What about you? Maybe the next time you think you are, think about the child who lost one hand to beg on the streets.

"Contentment is not the fulfillment of what you want; it is the realization of how much you already have."

When the door of happiness closes, another opens, but often times we look so long at the closed door that we don't see the one which has been opened for us.

It's true that we don't know what we've got until we lose it, but it's also true that! We don't know what we've been missing until it arrives.

The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.

The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past, you can't go on well in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches.

What are the presuppositions of NLP?

What are the presuppositions of NLP?

Here are some of them:

  1. No one is wrong or broken. People work perfectly to accomplish what they are currently accomplishing.
  2. People already have all the resources they need.
  3. Behind every behavior is a positive intention.
  4. Every behavior is useful in some context.
  5. The meaning of a communication is the response you get.
  6. If you aren't getting the response you want, do *something* different.
  7. There is no such thing as failure. There is only feedback.
  8. In any system, the element with the most flexibility exerts the most influence.
  9. The map is not the territory.
  10. If someone can do something, anyone can learn it.

Ran Online Levelling Guide

Levels 1-30*

1.When you are new in RAN Online... DO NOT CREATE A CHARACTER FIRST. Think which class you will choose.
2.Sacrifice your 20 Peso to Buy 20 EP Card and load up...Buy your (1Day) +7 {Class Weapon of Choice}
which costs 5 EP and the HP Recovery Potion 100 PCS which costs 15 EP
3.Look for the Calendar in and find the best schedule for x2/x3 EVENTS
4.Now Create your character and login.
5.When you are in the game... Try opening your inventory... you will see a (7HRS) Resu Training Roasry.This will
help you level up becuase of its x2 EXP effect.(Note: if you keep begging to get gold from high level players...
YOU WILL PAY THE PRICE which is your roasry will EXPIRE)
6.Dont Try to take the quests.... Leave it alone and do it later... The rosary's duration is already active once you
created your character.
7.Monsters to kill:
1-15 - Hooligans , Bandits
20-25 - Fencers , Street Junkies , Sluggers
25-30 - Slashers , JR. Brawlers , Brawlers , Maulers

Once Power leveling is over and you ran out of supplies.... you can see your gold high enough to buy scrolls
and armors... try not to buy Freshmen and Sophomore Sets... ITS A WASTE OF GOLD... BUY THE JUNIOR SET INSTEAD... Now you can finish your quests peacefully and fast.

Levels 30-50*

If you did the steps from above quickly... I congratulate you ^_^ But if your rosary , 1 Day Weapon , and POTS are gone.... Here are the next steps:

Plan A:(Dont use this plan if there are no x2 EVENTS)

1.Continue Leveling in the area by Buying 1Day +7 EP Weapon (5 EP) and A 1HR Rosary (12 EP) or if your Loaded
with cash... Try to buy a 5HR Rosary (37 EP) and more POTS (15 EP).Now buy NPC Armors next to add Defence.
2.Monsters to kill once you are ready to battle:
30-40 - Maulers , Crooks , Onslaughts , Punks , Renegades
40-50 - If you can beat ONSLAUGHTS fast enough... try completing the "Heading Outside Campus Quest"
- Blood Drinkers , Swordee Ardee , Uncle Potato , Fiery Chiefs , Chickens , Cordys , Stray Dogs

Plan B:(Money maker guide)

1.Buy a 50 EP Card and load up....
2.Buy the business card 7Days (20 EP) and buy megaphone(20) (10 EP)... try to buy 3 sets of megaphone(20)
3.Go to Marktet Place (Channel 1 is the most common spot) and get first the 3 sets of megaphones.
4.Find a slot full of people and get the business card 7D quickly
5.Open a personal market and sell the 3 sets of megaphones at least 25,000-30,000 Gold Price and Wait.
6.If items are sold out... you can make at least 1m-2m. Now buy your weapon , armor , and supplies.
7.Proceed to Plan A

Levels 50-Above*

Here is where you put your skills to use.... Try finding a party spot and ask them if they are full.... If you have
joined successfully , try to obey their instructions and make sure you dont FAST KILL. (Joining a party with
a rosary on and a x2/x3 EVENT activated can be a pleasure in the butt.)

-Factors affecting leveling of party groups:
1.The composition of the members and the leader. (Shamans and TQ'ers are the most needed in parties right?)
2.Great Leadership and command. (Ex: 1st Order - LURE / 2nd Order - BACK / 3rd Order - KILL)
3.Make sure there is no lvl gap number at least 20 or above.
4.Great obedience of members which makes STEP 2 much effective.
5.Always be active. If you try to leech , the price would be REPLACEMENT.


f your level 40-50 & you have party the good spot for levelling is @ the construction site (im sorry im an sg student)
mobs to be killed: construction fatty, fatty boom boom, & (forgot the name of that mobs throwing knives is what he do) in that area it gives good exp...

Atheism anyone???

Below is a list of the most commonly repeated Christian cliches. You will see these statements, or slight variations of them, in nearly every message board and newsgroup that deals with religion versus non-religion. Please feel free to use this list to point out the complete lack of originality, or the predictability of the average Christian in debating religious subjects.

The Pathos or "I pity you, Fool! " group
These statements basically say that the Christian is a superior person who must have pity on all of the poor, lowly unbelievers.
(1) "I'll pray for you."
(2) "Jesus Loves You"
(3) "God Loves You"
(4) "I feel sorry for you."
(5) "Atheists suffer from a mental illness that makes them unable to detect God/Spiritual things."
(6) "Jesus still loves you!"

The "atheism = religion/faith" group
These all boil down to saying that not believing in a religion is the same as believing in one.
(7) "You have to believe in SOMETHING!"
(8) "Everyone worships SOMETHING!"
(9) "It takes a lot more faith to believe in Evolution than it does to believe in God."
(10) "It takes a lot more faith to ignore the evidence of God than it does to believe in him."
(11) "I only wish that my faith in God was as strong as your faith in Atheism/Evolution."
(12) "You may think your happy, but you can only know TRUE HAPPINESS through Jesus Christ."

The "You're stupid, I'm smart, so stop wasting my time..." group
In these cliches, the Christian tells you that you're either blind, stupid, ignorant, or willingly deceiving yourself, despite how much better your argument is than theirs.
(13) "You have already made up your mind, and it's a waste of time to try to convince you."
(14) "You have chosen to be blind to the TRUTH!"
(15) "You have closed your heart off to the TRUTH!"
(16) "You have obviously been deceived by the devil."
(17) "I found Jesus. Why can't you?"
(18) "The fool sayeth in his heart that there is no God!"
(19) "You're obviously running away from God!"
(20) "You're obviously hiding from the truth!"
(21) "Though you say you don't believe, deep down inside, you know there is a God!"

The "God's obvious to me, What's your problem?" group
This group assumes that all unbelievers have a mental block, or cannot see what it obvious to the believer.
(22) "If there is no God, how do you explain the world we live in?"
(23) "What happened in your life that made you hate God?"
(24) "Of course the Bible sounds like foolishness! Without faith in God, you cannot understand his wisdom!"
(25) "Even though you don't believe it, Jesus/God Loves you!"
(26) "Even though you don't believe it, Jesus/God is REAL!"

The "Your life has no meaning" group
These statements tell the unbeliever that their life is worthless, pointless, meaningless, or otherwise not worth anything, unless they accept JESUS
(27) "Well, those people were not TRUE Christians..."
(28) "A universe without God is a universe without Hope!"
(29) "Without a God, life is meaningless."
(30) "Christianity is not just the best answer. It is the only answer."
(31) "You have devoted your life to something NEGATIVE (atheism), rather than something POSITIVE (christianity, of course)."

The "Just you wait..." group
These all basically say that you'll eventually be a believer, when you're old enough, smart enough, have a revelation, etc.
(32) "One day, you will know what THE TRUTH is!
(33) "Some day, God will call you."
(34) "One day you will call to God for help."
(35) "If you simply have faith in him, you will see that God is real."
(36) "I was once like you, a foolish, young, unbeliever..."
(37) "There are no atheists in foxholes..."

The "Threats of Hellfire" group
These are all empty, pointless threats that even if you can win the debate, you're going to go to hell, so f___ you.
(38) "The day will come when you realize the lord is your only salvation."
(39) "It's too bad that you're going to Hell."
(40) "One day you will have to answer to Jesus Christ Himself, and then it wont be so funny when he throws your unrepentent soul into HELL."
(41) "You had better get right with God now before it's too late."
(42) "Hope you have an asbestos suit, cause you're going to HELL."
(43) "Hope you enjoy your special place in HELL."
(44) "One day, when you're burning in Hell, you'll remember this conversation, and that I warned you!"

My personal favorite finishes off the list here. I call this the,

"I am a real Christian but you were never a real Christian!" group.
These short quips are often used to immediately shut the mind of the true believer so he or she does not have to think for a second longer. The arrogance and pride of such individuals is striking.
(45) "There is no such thing as an ex-christian, honey."
(46) "You only THOUGHT you were a Christian."
(47) "If you really had the Holy Spirit, you could never doubt GOD."
(48) "When God gave out the GIFT of faith, He left you out."
(49) "I know Jesus is real in my heart and if you ever had a real personal relationship with him like I have, you would know He is real too."

Stress Management

A lecturer, when explaining stress management to an audience, raised a glass of water and asked, "How heavy is this glass of water?" Answers called out ranged from 20g to 500g. The lecturer replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter. It depends on how long you try to hold it."

"If I hold it for a minute, that's not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I'll have an ache in my right arm. If I hold it for a day, you'll have to call an ambulance. In each case, it's the same weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes."

He continued, "And that's the way it is with stress management. If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later, as the burden becomes increasingly heavy, we won't be able to carry on. As with the glass of water, you have to put it down for a while and rest before holding it again. When we're refreshed, we can carry on with the burden."

"So, before you return home tonight, put the burden of work down. Don't carry it home. You can pick it up tomorrow. Whatever burdens you're carrying now, let them down for a moment if you can. Relax; pick them up later after you've rested. Life is short. Enjoy it!"

And then he shared some ways of dealing with the burdens of life:

-_- Accept that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue.
-_- Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.
-_- Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.
-_- Drive carefully. It's not only cars that can be recalled by their maker.
-_- If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.
-_- If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.
-_- It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
-_- Never buy a car you can't push.
-_- Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won't have a leg to stand on.
-_- Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.
-_- The second mouse gets the cheese.
-_- When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.
-_- Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live.
-_- You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.
-_- Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.
-_- We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.
-_- A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour

Power Brawler Leveling Guide


lvl 1-15 little hooligans

lvl 15-20+ hooligans and bandits(while pursuing the nurse quest[cigarette butts])

lvl 20-30+ street junkies(while pursuing the nurse quest[stolen bandages])

lvl 40+ by this lvl u have invested lot of gold(kya pwede ka na makabili ng maraming pots) palvl na u sa mga brawler sa sports field or sa SC2(dito ako nag pa lvl 54 sa SC2)

lvl 54 labas ka na po(pero lvl 30 ata pwede ka na lumabas)-nasabi ko lng po ito dahil nga sa kalambutan ng pow brawler, mahirap pa po mag lure sa labas ng lvl 40+ pa lng po. Unless full set armored na ang brawler mo po.

lvl 54 onward sa mga swordee ardie and blood drinker ka muna... Kaya mo na mag lure jan kahit 3-4 lng dala mo sa spot nyo.

lvl 58-68 go for the Construction Fatty. A good spot is at C4 construction site (SG) or if at other campuses just head outside the perimeter of the school zone

lvl 69-74 go for the freezing halogen (assuming you have a party because their ice attack really bites.. ouch! hehehe!) OR clowns/SGDs

lvl 75-80 Leonair would be a good spot, outside Leonair is good enough

lvl 81-89 Leonair's 1st floor and 2nd floor


POW-INT kc gsto ko yong 1 hit - 1 hit
kasi best sa CW at PK mode
ang skill build ko po is:

sa [POW]

Side kick : 4
spinning kick : 4
Chain kick : 2
Sonic slash: 2
Power Kick: 9 (Master) "The best to,Pamatay ng brawlers"
Agility Boost: 1 "d dapat upgradin sana to, kaya lang pag duel nid ko ng cancel,
kc the 100% BEST ito pang cancel!! lalo na pag mga
mabagal cast skills calaban mo sa DUELO"
Elevated Kick -> di ko to kinuha kc ang bagal n2 matapos eh"
Tornado kick -> di ko to kinuha kc NONE SENSE ito PANG MOBS lang to, pag palvl mode lang"
Makaze Kick: 9 (Master) "LONG-ATTACK ng brawly kasi to!! ANTI-VACUUM or Other Long Range skills!!
at ang isa pang best na tactics ko d2 sa makaze kick skill is
ung HIT & RUN
Makaze Kick "bloog"
tapos takbo
makaze nanman
Angkle Crush: 9 (Master) the best pam 1 SHOT talagah to!!
Upper Job-> diko muna kukunin to kasi 2 hits to di kayang 1hit lang
pag PK or CW "pots power" lang nla yan
mas malakas panga Angkle Crush kay sa ito eh!!
pag merun na "Cyclone Rays" na skill
kkukunin ko na ung "Upper Jab"
baka maggng Requirement ito

sa [INT]

Head Crush: 4 " kinuha ko to kc requirement sa elbow crush
Elbow Crush: 4 "kinuha ko to kc requirement sa power up
Power Up: 9 (Master) " increase the rate of your Atk"
Blood Lust: 9 (master "increase the rate of all your Party Members Atk)


Wow atlast POW TYPE Brawler Guide...Hi Blaq, husband to ni brean..hehe

For me da best ang Pow Type build pag higher level na kasi doon mo na ma eenjoy yung mga da best na skilss like Tornado Kick, Makaze, Ankle crush at upper Jab..

My best combination during PK and duels since 100+ pa lng ako;

1.) Apply Buffs - Concentration or Evasion
2.) Powerkick - dapat master (+45% added sa damage ng skills mo)
3.) Inuuna ko Tornado kick (wala pa ko Makaze pero malapit na) usually pag less than 100 level ng kalaban isang tira lng pag master ang power kick
4.) Pag di pa deds sa Tornado dahil 100+ pala ang level may rider ako na Agility boost
5.) Then kung di ka pa tumba at malakas pala kalaban pwede mo ding isunod ung Elevated Kick

Pero sa experience ko Power Kick + Tornado Kick + Agility Boost kahit 117 ung kalaban di umuubra..90% ng mga nakalaban ko taob sa combination na yan ^^ wag lang dex archer ahihihi

I'm really eager to get Makaze kick 2 levels na lng ako yipee..Pag na ka power kick ka plus makaze da best na pang PK talaga at pang duel..One hit lagi kalaban...hehehe

Nad one more thing kung gusto ninyo cgurado ang panalo use the EP gaunts ung Heavy Tough +7 pag yun gamit ko 99% panalo sa duel..hehehe

Just my 2 cents....

One more advise pag nasa party wag mag lulure pag walang buff like TQ, EC, at CS dahil sa sobrang lambot natin isang hit ka lng ng fisherman deds ka hehehe...

Always carry MP ung pinaka maliit lng kasi maliit lng MP natin...SP is optional kung mag sosolo ka tska mo lng kailangan kasi may buff naman ang shaman na SP..Bring a lot of HP...Wag umasa sa shaman dahil cgurado dafa kayo...hehehe

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? is a Latin phrase that translates to "Who will guard the guards?" or "Who shall watch the watchers themselves?"

The question was first asked by Plato in the Republic, his great work on government and morality. The perfect society as described by Socrates, the main character of the work, relies on laborers, slaves, and tradesmen. The guardian class is to protect the city. The question is put to Socrates, who will guard the guardians? or, who will protect us against the protectors? Plato's answer to this is: they will guard themselves against themselves. We must tell the guardians a noble lie. The noble lie will inform them that they are better than those they serve and it is, therefore, their responsibility to guard and protect those lesser than themselves. We will instill in them a distaste for power or privilege, they will rule because they believe it right, not because they desire it.

The saying has since been used by many people to ponder the insoluble question of where ultimate power should reside. The answer for the United States was found in the separation of powers. Never give ultimate power to any one group; the executive, legislative, or judicial; have the interests of each compete and conflict. Each group will then find it in its best interest to impede the functioning of the rest and this will keep ultimate power under constant struggle and, thereby, out of any one group's hands.

For my former co-workers in Globe...

Something I would have sent before going off to a new rat race..hehhe

Hey all,

I'll be leaving Globe Telecom soon and it is sad for me because I have really enjoyed my time here. I will miss a lot of people here that have become good friends. I could mention names but I think (hope) you know who you are.

I'm writing this email from the window sill outside of my cubical because someone liked me so much that they felt it necessary to grab my chair before it got cold (It's probably an "in memory of" type of thing). But I know they will miss me as much as I will miss them. (there goes my monitor now) I know it's tough to keep in touch (well, my favorite pen is gone now) but (oops, now my power strip is making it's way to another cube) I hope we cross paths again in the future. (I really didn't need that calendar anymore). I'm leaving because it's time to go back home. (Pardon me, If I drop off before I finish this email, it's because someone took my laptop power supply yesterday and my battery is getting low) Thank you all, for the times you have helped me out when I needed it. (There goes my coffee cup, and stapler). And I sure hope I help each of you in some small way while I was here. (I don't understand why nobody is taking any of my Steeler stuff)

I sincerely wish everyone at Globe Telecom the best and may we meet again

I hate good bye mel

Another Pow Archer Guide


Archers trained in the art of power are one of the most scarcely populated warriors in the world of RAN, and it is much to our regret that power archers are regarded by some inexperienced players as, ironically, powerless. Yet, as I said in my other posts, "DO NOT UNDERSTIMATE POWER ARCHERS", and as such, I would like to present possible builds regarding the power archers so that people may understand further.


1) Power archers' techniques are generally SLOW. Most skills, with the exception of Amazon Fury, need charging and take at least 3 seconds to cast. Skills also take long to cool down.
2) They deal HIGHER DAMAGES compared to other archer types, even when using low level skils such as Arrow Assault. As low as level 107, equipped with a very good bow, even with slow casting, they are PERFECTLY CAPABLE OF A 1-HIT KILL in PK. In short, one hit wonder!
3) Compared to other archer skills, the power skill tree boasts of the LONGEST SKILL RANGE in the game, hence, power archers, in my opinion, one of the most proficient missilers of ran online.
4) Power archers DO NOT RELY ON DAMAGE ALONE. Hunter snare is one of the best skills a power archer can have. While the target is running away, the power archer can stop the enemy. This one of the few skills that can slow down a character using Lightspeed or Massive Haste.
5) Perhaps, one of the most annoying things with the power skill tree is some skills are needed to be mastered to master higher skills. Sa tagalog, MASAYANG SA SKILL POINTS.
CAUTION: To master Bow Mastery, master Force Shot first; to master Armor Piercing Shot, master Bow Strike First.
6) As with all archer classes, the power archer has LOW HP even at high levels. Also, without excellent armors, power archers (and also int archers) have low defense, so they can also easily get killed.
7) Putting these together, the power archer has low chance of winning duels against faster attacking builds and classes. However, they are good player killers given the chance to strike.


I think that these two of the many possible builds are suitable. However, this must not mean that this is 100% correct =). There are many more possibilities that might be better than the ones I will present below. Feel free to try on other possibilities. Mga build lang to na pumasa sa utak ko nyehehehe.

Pure Power, Pure Damage Build
This is my current character build im working on. Good for PK.


Pow - at least 352 (pre req for Genie Bow, or if u want anger shot, something higher than this)
Vit - INVEST IT HERE (HP better since we only get 2 def/ 25 dex, and 25 dex = more or less 7 levels)


Force Shot - MASTER (needed to master Bow mastery)
Bow Strike - LEVEL 7 (prerequisite for level 3 Armor Piercing)
Armor Piercing Shot - LEVEL 3 (prerequisite for Enhanced Force Shot)
Bow Mastery - MASTER (+10% DAMAGE)
Amazon Fury - OPTIONAL, KEEP IT AT LEVEL 1 (shockwave and arrow assault can also be good skill cancellers even at PK)
Enhanced Force Shot - LEVEL 2 (prerequisite for Tiger's Rage; strongest skill before 107)
Hunter Snare - MASTER (7 seconds of freeze. Ouch.)
Arrow Bombardment - MASTER
Tiger's Rage - MASTER (NOTE: some old guide wrote that this is not a good skill, due to the time it takes to cast, which is about 4 seconds. ill update this once i get the skill.)
Wrath of PNX - MASTER
Anger Shot - (i still dont know yet, more likely it must be MASTERED)

Shockwave - LEVEL 2 (prerequisite for Sacrifice)
Sacrifice - MASTER (+22% DAMAGE)
Eagle's Sight - OPTIONAL / MASTER (+18 range if mastered, and pumps the range of all shot skills, however, there might be a need to pump a little int to master this earlier than most players)

Arrow Assault - LEVEL 1 (if youre not getting kawasu) / LEVEL 3 (prerequisite, this is the skill
you need to use frequently, since it's fast and can be used over and over again)
Kawasu - OPTIONAL / MASTER (needed for evasion, since evasion is a type of defense)

Focus - MASTER (power skills have the highest tendency of missing)
Range Mastery - MASTER (energy value is ALWAYS included in damage com****tion)
Lightspeed - OPTIONAL (MH is better, since range is not a problem)

The Power of "High"-Breed, Pow-Dex Build
This is based on the build of my friend. Makes use of the Evasive Chant. Take note that some skills are sacrificed at low levels. Great for leveling up at higher levels and also good for PK. Some damage points are sacrificed for a defense and evasion.


Pow - same as above, but DEX must be pumped to the recommended level first.
Dex - around 170. Dex can be pumped by using enhanced equipment and jade rings.
Vit - depends if u want to put it here or not. I suggest u still invest it here.


Force Shot - LEVEL 4 early on, but may mastered at higher levels, if u want to put Bow Mastery
Bow Strike - LEVEL 7 (prerequisite for level 3 Armor Piercing)
Armor Piercing Shot - LEVEL 3 (prerequisite for Enhanced Force Shot)
Bow Mastery - LEVEL 3 early on, but may be mastered at higher levels for damage
Amazon Fury - OPTIONAL, KEEP IT AT LEVEL 1 (shockwave and arrow assault can also be good skill cancellers even at PK)
Enhanced Force Shot - LEVEL 2 (prerequisite for Tiger's Rage; strongest skill before 107)
Hunter Snare - MASTER (7 seconds of freeze. Ouch.)
Arrow Bombardment - MASTER
Tiger's Rage - MASTER (NOTE: some old guide wrote that this is not a good skill, due to the time it takes to cast, which is about 4 seconds. as i said earlier, ill update this once i get the skill.)
Wrath of PNX - MASTER
Anger Shot - (as i said, i still dont know yet, more likely it must be MASTERED)

Shockwave - LEVEL 2 (prerequisite for Sacrifice)
Sacrifice - MASTER (+22% DAMAGE)

Arrow Assault - LEVEL 3 (prerequisite for kawasu, could pass as normal attack)
Kawasu - MASTER (needed for evasion, since evasion is a type of defense)
Evasive Chant - MASTER (high level parties need evasion since high level monsters deal strong damage)
Focus - MASTER (power skills have the highest tendency of missing)
Range Mastery - MASTER (energy value is ALWAYS included in damage com****tion)
Lightspeed - OPTIONAL (MH is better, since range is not a problem)

BIG NOTE: Other feasible and good builds can be created from the two builds i mentioned above.

PK tips

1) When using a power archer, be aware of the long skill cooldowns. Use skills if they can really hit (ung lagpas na sa invulnerability paglabas ng portal)
2) Do not charge head on, instead, wait for the correct chance to strike. The power archer is not a solo-mode killer without proper armor.
3) If you cannot kill a running target dahil kulang ka sa damage, make him/her stop or slow down using hunter snare, so that other PKers can catch up.
4) For targets using slow but powerful skills, try cancelling them. Better to fight instead of running but ending up dead dahil lang sa isang one hit shot.
5) Pag may POW UP NA! SUNTUKAN NA TO! SUGOD!~~~ ilabas ang LAKAS! =) pero ingat parin maded sa one hit kill. nde lumalaki life pag pow up. damage lang.
6) POTS power is the best power of them all. amf. =) But, if you cannot defeat somebody. RUN! hehehe... Archers have the fastest base movespeed in the game.
7) Magdasal ka na pag nagmiss! rofl

DUELO tips

1) iwasan nyo gumamit ng slow skills sa simula ng battle. dahil macacancel un. gamitin nyo lang after execution of a fast skill (un ay pag nakacancel ka)
2) hindi ko nasabi pero ang amazon fury ay isang good duel skill, make use of this pero ingat sa elec weapons kasi babagal ka todo.
3) shockwave/arrow assault spam is always useful pag nde mo kaya kalaban mo pero hindi ka nya kaya i-one hit. onteng urong lang pag brawler para kailangan nila lumapit.
4) dapat marunong din kayo mag observe sa ginagawa ng kalaban para malaman nyo ung da best na gagawin. style din sa duel ang onteng paabang abang.
5) baps muna bago laban. HAHAHAHA.
6) tulad ng sinabi ko kanina! pag nagmiss ka TALO NA! TALOOOOO TALOOOO!

pero sulit nmn pag lumakas na..^^,

NOTE: this guide is not finished yet, pde nyo sabihin kung anong mali ko...
post nyo nlng at i-eedit ko nlng post ko..(^^,
about dun sa mga hindi ko pa cgurado(specially skills),
sana may mag correct(MGA IDOL NA POW BRAWLER SANA I-TAMA I2).

==== EDIT ======

Twice na ako nag reset ng skills ko.. Mahirap tlaga ang pow brawler sa umpisa. In the beginning kailangan mong imaster and spinning kick. This is your bread and butter kc pang mob skill cya. You do not need concentration and agility boost sayang ang skill points. Get sonic kick tulong na rin yon kc lakas din the damage non. dont get power kick yet.
Reserve ka ng enough skill points para mamaster ang elevated kick, then put around 5 skill points sa power kick. Pag may elevated kick ka na, madali na lang pumatay ng monsters. take note that elevated kick has a 360 degrees range (break dancer ka na). Malakas ka na maglure pag may elevated kick ka.
To continue, palevel ka lang.. carpark.. sa leo.. Master tornado kick. Pagdating mo ng level 107, advisable na magreset ka ng skills. so far, master mo ang makaze, tornado, elevated at power kick. Put enough skill points sa iba. sa etc naman, kumpetuhin mo na ang fist mastery, its your choice to master evasion. Pagtapos mong magreset ng skills, you have enough skill points to lear ankle crush and upper jab.
Pow brawler, pots power ka din.. lalo sa MP.. madalas akong nagdadala ng 150 medium MP.


A power brawlers' mob control skills is dominant at level 87 (agi boost and elevate kick) though spinning kick can be attained at level 27, its only 1 skill but good mob control (hitting over 9 targets when mastered) added with the buff of a power kick skill (attainable at level 77). It seems like a long trek but you have a party when you mob so its best to just hit once with a spinning kick added the buff of a power kick skill. It goes well, trust me. And when you reach 87 and above.. RIDER KICK!!!!

Indeed high level dex brawlers have good defense and evasion but even though they have that, the accuracy rating of a power brawlers weapon minimizes their evasion chance. Also concentration skill can make a power brawler miss less. This skill is good for dueling and PK purposes though if you are up to the roleplaying element of the game, its better not to master this skill. I didn't place any skill points in concentration and I can still hit them with my kicks in duels(against higher level dex builds,10-20 levels higher than mine... except archers of course, they are evasion queens hehehe!).

Thats right, power brawler's weapons are really EXPENSIVE!!! Now why is that? based on RAN population, dex brawlers are really the majority so when you buy at the market, expect to see higher priced weapons (with consideration of -RV'ed items but... sometimes thats not the case).

Tip: As of now, I've only seen the mastered versions of the skills with their chance of push/pull (also known as cancelation rate):

Level 1-7:
- Heavy Punch (66%) --> WOW!!!
- Side Kick (58%)

Level 27:
- Spinning Kick (18%)

Level 47:
- Chain Kick (10%)

Level 67:
- Sonic Slash (10%)

And now maybe you're wondering why I mastered the skills? Just to see their pull/push chance of success. And the highest there is Heavy Punch (66% chance of pull/push WOW!!! dex types are really good at cancelling) and Side Kick (58% chance pull/push).

So in dueling, you want to cancel attacks of opponents right? And if you're still at lower levels, use the highest push/pull chance skills AND.. take note AND the skills with the fastest execution frame.

----------------------------------------------combo here-----------------------------------------------------------------

Preferred combo for a power brawler (lower level 67 less): THIS IS A THREE SKILL STRING COMBO to be repeated simultaneously if the opponent is still alive.

By the way this is a tip and may not work always based on the circumstance, but its best to try it:

1) Side Kick / Sonic Slash - Side kick for cancelation, Sonic Slash if you think the HP of your opponent can be dealt with one shot kick. OR use Heavy Punch if you're POW - DEX type.

2) Chain Kick - Good follow up after Side Kick or Sonic Slash. IF and only IF you see the animation rate of your opponent attacking you with a skill (happens when you have electricity/lightning type of weapons OR you really have good eyes hehehe!) use Side kick OR Sonic Slash either skill which you have'nt used yet (remember there is a cooldown time for skills). Also why chain kick? this is best to add chances of successfully landing an elemental attack (to either slow or damage the opponent more).

3) Then you can use a normal attack (no skills) OR if your Side kick has cooled down, use it.

Now whats number four? You think this was a three hit skill?

4) Spinning kick - This is suicidal, very slow execution time but you can use this as an optional combo finisher. If the opponent has low HP and is slowed (elec or ice) use this skill. Not only does it show a cool animation frame (RIDER KICK!!!) it also good for style points hehehehe!

Remember this combo does not always succeed however chances of success based from my playing level with opponents higher (77-90) than me when I was level 67, the combo worked almost 50% of the time hehehe!


By the way for higher level power brawlers out there, please place your combos on this thread. Or other suggestions please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

Though I think a starter for their combo is either agility boost or makaze kick. based on my observation... please correct or clarify.

Thanks RAN community.

The best friend a man has in this world may turn against him and become his enemy. His son or daughter that he has reared with loving care may prove ungrateful. Those who are nearest and dearest to us, those whom we trust with our happiness and our good name, may become traitors to their faith.

The money that a man has, he may lose. It flies away from him, perhaps when he needs it the most. A man’s reputation may be sacrificed in a moment of ill-considered action. The people who are prone to fall on their knees to do us honor when success is with us may be the first to throw the stone of malice when failure settles its cloud upon our heads.

The one absolutely unselfish friend that a man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him and the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous is his dog.

A man’s dog stands by him in prosperity and in poverty, in health and in sickness. He will sleep on the cold ground, where the wintry winds blow and the snow drives fiercely, if only he may be near his master’s side. He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer, he will lick the wounds and sores that encounters the roughness of the world.

He guards the sleep of his pauper master as if he were a prince. When all other friends desert, he remains. When riches take wings and reputation falls to pieces, he is as constant in his love as the sun in its journey through the heavens.

If fortune drives the master forth an outcast in the world, friendless and homeless, the faithful dog asks no higher privilege than that of accompanying him to guard against danger, to fight against his enemies.

When the last scene of all comes, and death takes the master in its embrace and his body is laid away in the cold ground, no matter if all other friends pursue their way, there by his graveside will the noble dog be found, his head between his paws, his eyes sad but open in alert watchfulness, faithful and true even to death.

Darkswordsman - A pow swordsman skill based character
Ninja Knife - A dex swordsman skill based character
Cruel Jupiter - A int brawler skill based character

15 Darkswordsman Jr.
9 Ethreal Fist

What items to bring when hunting

How to Hunt Bosses


There are a few ways to hunt bosses throughout the game.

Party Based:

- Fast Kill
- Less Pots that will be used

- The chances of you getting the item is slim, especially if it's a party of 8
- Can wreak havoc and confusion when hunting bosses. Or simply put UNORGANIZED

Gang Based:

- Fast Kill
- Less Pots
- Organized if planned well
- Can ask for item if it is for your build
- Can locate bosses in less amount of time

- Sharing of Items Like ShenMo Rings can be hard.


- My recommended way, go with a hunting buddy
- Organized
- Can easily share loots

- Difficulty in finding bosses because of the lack of people
- Hoarding of items if same character class


- All loots are yours

- Consumes pots
- If Ks'd by a party they will get the loot
- Hard to locate bosses
- Longer time to kill


Boss Information / Strategy


Darkswordsman Jr.

HP: ???
Location: MP Campus/Hole, PHNX Campus/Hole, SG Campus
Skills: X-Strike, Dual Slash, Kick Slash, Jumping Slash
Respawn Time: Around 1hr Real Time


Simple one really. Just have a HP of about 400 and your good to go. He's really slow on attacking so his skills
tend to get cancelled easily.

Ethreal Fist

HP: ???
Location: MP Hole, PHNX Hole, SG Hole
Respawn Time: Around 2hrs Real Time


One strategy is to have an HP of above 800+ because if he hits critical he dishes out that amount of dmg,
you wouldn't want to get kill by 1 hit do you? S

o hunt him if ur HP is above that mark for the tanker of course.
A must for hunting this boss is to preferably have an electric based weapon, doesn't matter if it's weaker than
the one your using as long as it's electric. It grealty slows him down, which makes you use less pots.


HP: ???
Location: SG Hole Only
Skills: Crit Slash, Hurricane Slash, Jumping Slash
Respawn Time: Around 2hrs Real Time


Hp of 750+ is recommended if your going to tank him. Same as the EF tactic use elecs and just watch out for that crit slash.

Here's a party based strategy for hunting him early on, You must be at the SG ring for this to work or bring him there.
Have one character hit him and let him follow, now circle around the pavilion in the middle of the SG ring.
If he switches targets, just run around and so on.
He'll go down in a few hits. This is very possible at Lvl 47. So hunt early.

Ninja Knife

HP: ???
Location: SG Hole Only
Skills: Lightning Slash, Explosive Strike, Sunken Strike
Respawn Time: Around 2hrs Real Time


Just have an HP at around 800+ He's quick to dish out skills so watch out.
One thing to watch out is after he hits you with numerous strikes using Lightning Slash, he'll follow it up with Sunken Strike.
So pots ahead when he hits you with lightning strike, Same as always use an Electric element weapon to slow him down.
He's much harder to bring down than EF and Ds maybe because he's a dex based boss I guess.

Cruel Jupiter

HP: ???
Location: Practice Yard
Skills: Engulf, Chi Finger Blast
Respawn Time: 6hrs Real Time


I'd recommend a party of 4-5 Members. No electric/ice elements this time, because it'll destroy the Luring Pattern.

The most important part is using only Int Skills! So that CJ will not switch his target. Oh btw shockwave is the only int based attack that will make him change targets.

The best strategy to go by is having one person circle about while other members pelt him with int attacks.
Yes that's all there is to it. You could start hunting him with a party of lvl 47 characters it'll just take longer.

Now for the lurer here's the trick for keeping him off your tail.
Do you see those Circle Stone Slabs on the ground?
Use those four circles as points. That's the radius that you must be encircling to not get hit.
Do not run around in a big circle because CJ tends to catch up if he is not turning.
Hence that's why the radius should be small.

The dificulty is keeping those noobs away, for one they wouldn't know that int skills are the only skills that should be used, and you can't PK them so that's a bother. Have Fun.

He drops around 200k per kill, see he's the easiest boss to find, kill, rewarding if you do it right. ^__^

Stat point reset is done equally on all stats. There are 5 stats. An average of 6 points for each stat will be removed and be made available for redistribution (5 stats x 6pts = 30 stat pts). If a stat has less than 6 points, the remaining is subtracted from the other skills with stat that are more than 6
Before Oblivion Potion After Oblivion Potion
Pow 10 (+5) Pow 10
Dex 10 (+5) Dex 10
Spi 10 (+5) Spi 10
Vit 10 (+20) Vit 10 (+10)
Stm 10 (+5) Stm 10
Pow is only 5 pts, all 5 pts will be removed. Since 6 is required for each stat, the remaining will be deducted from the stat with the most stat points. Since the other stats have only 5 points with the exception of Vit (20). All stats with 5 points will be removed and the remaining will be deducted from Vit. Vit will become +10 after the stat reset ((20 – 6) – 4) = 10. All in all, 30 stat points should be made available for redistribution.
Before Oblivion Potion After Oblivion Potion
Pow 10 (+7) Pow 10 (+1) or 0
Dex 10 (+6) Dex 10
Spi 10 (+20) Spi 10 (+14) or +13
Vit 10 (+20) Vit 10 (+14) or +13
Stm 10(+5) Stm 10
Initially 6 will be deducted from each stat. Since Stm is only 5 we have 1 pt remaining. That 1 pt can go to pow or spi or vit. Since that have more than 6 pts.
Before Oblivion Potion After Oblivion Potion
Pow 10 Pow 10
Dex 10 (+20) Dex 10 (+5)
Spi 10 (+300) Spi 10 (+285)
Vit 10 Vit 10
Stm 10 Stm 10
Since there are only 2 stats with plus points. 15 points will be deducted to dex and spi.
(30 / no of stats with plus points) = deduction per stat. After using the potion dex will only be (20- 15= 5) and spi will be (300 -15 = 285)
