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.
