2 moons Castle Sieges - What you need to know

Castle Siege: Learning your role

Thanks to greyw1z from the 2moons forums (Acclaim)

An average Castle Siege can easily be divided in 2 main parts: Pre-Gates and Post-Gates (see picture). The first part consist in all the events that take place before the South gate and at least one of the other 2 gates (West and East) are broken, once this happen the second part starts.

Over the entire siege the defending guild has the edge (better teleport system, easier goals, etc), therefore, on the Pre-Gates part the attacking guilds should work together, and under no circumstances attack each other, otherwise, there would be a huge waste of time that only benefits the controller of the castle (this is if the guilds actually want to win and not to help the defending guild to keep control).

How to not attack each other in the first part?
The guilds that participate on siege are known on Wednesday night, so the leaders of the participant guilds have 5 days to talk to each other and make an agreement of peace until the gates are broken (even if they are KOS), then is a free for all.

In siege you must hold control to attack other attacking guilds, so there is no “oops my bad” excuse. After all, everyone wins from this alliance.

Some of the roles for the first part are:

Mages & Staff Summoners: The Supporters
Their main function as ranged attackers with Magic attack (Gates are immune to Magic attacks) is to hit the defenders that are attacking your tanks, and the ones melee classes can’t reach. Example:

The other thing they could do is to attack gates with their non-magical-attacks (the Summoners could switch to Twin Blade and Mages could use Uzer Gain or Aqua Circle), but this role is far in importance from the main. Everything else they do (like a random Imitid Flash or Palpus to another attacking guild) would result in help to the defending guild.

TB Summoners, Knights, Bagis: The Physical Damage Dealers

These ones play the most important job by far: they must destroy the gates as soon as possible. You only must attack gates, nothing else, if someone else is attacking you ignore them, killing those are the job of the Supporters. The description of your work is basically: 1) Run to gate 2) Attack 3) Die & Reborn, repeat all over again, pretty easy in theory.

Segnales, Hunters: The Hybrids

These are the versatile classes. Segnales should play both roles, Curse Field the defenders out of melee range and do Physical damage to gates (healing plays a tertiary role, buffs are important though).
Hunters can play any role, if your guild is lacking of Mages and/or Staff Summoners, they got to help killing the defenders out of melee range, if the guild is lacking of (physical) damage dealers, they should attack gates. On a semi even circumstance, Hunters should attack gates.

First gate was a piece of cake but the other 2 takes years!

Empirically, I have seen that the East and West take a lot of more time to break than the first gate, but mostly if because of players mistakes as well:

No Soloing

This is not a race, you don’t win anything to get to the gate first and die seconds after, and going alone to a gate will only get you killed faster. Regroup: All the members of your party meet at some point (not in the entrance, in case some noob is spamming Aoe’s) and go to the same gate at the same time, always respecting the roles of course.

Play smart

There are some factors you have to take into account when choosing which gate to go:
-Gate remaining HP.
-Defenders and attackers at the Gate.

If one gate is about to be destroyed, ALL the GUILDS should go there and finish it, take a statue and ignore the other gate for the rest of the game.
If the West Gate has a full party of Mages and Hunters defending it and the one in the East has 1 Bagi and people from the other guilds attacking guilds are running to that gate, don’t try to be a hero, go to the one with more chances to be attacked and destroyed.

Learn from your deaths

If your party got crushed 3 times in a row by 6 Curse Field from Segnales with +7’s 130 Whips, are you going to go again with no changes? Of course not, get some resistance and go again, this time you will have the advantage.

Woooot, we’re inside, now what!?

Every guild has their own strategy. In my opinion, the best one is:

After guild takes control of a guardian stone (your favorite one), The entire guild must rush and attack another stone, no one must defend, the reason is because the stones have 5 minutes of invulnerability. After 5 minutes passed one Physical Damage Dealer should attack the stone until it has 42% left, a little less than half bar (So even if an enemy guild does the rest of the damage and gets the 15% bonus for last hit, you will keep control of stone). After guardian stone has a little under half bar left, everyone must continue conquering other statues.

After you got enough statues (at least 3), EVERYONE must meet at Juto, and AFTER everyone is there, start to empathize.

Don’t rush the empathize

The penalty for stopping communication with Juto is huge, you lose a random stone, which removes you some buffs and increase your respawn time. It’s important to wait until the guild has enough stones and everyone is at Juto or blocking the entrances to Juto to start to empathize. My favorite block spot is this.

There are plenty of others tactics; some more controlish, others more aggressive.

Also, is important to note that guardian stones shall not be taken in a random order; each one adds a special effect to the member and this has to be taken into consideration, also the location of the guardian stones play a HUGE factor when deciding what stone to pick first.

Other common mistakes:

Warm Chocolate Pudding:

Killing the other guilds in the spawn point doesn’t increase your charisma at all, just makes you look lame. Got to admit it is a great source of help to the defending guild though…

Lack of rules knowledge

Your laziness might cost 50M and 600 adventure points to your guild; I have seen plenty of Mages doing Gracious Eddy to Guardian stones among other atrocities. The Guides are quite short, just read them:

General guide

After reading the guides you should be able to answer questions like: What happens after a Stone is taken? What happens if I lose communication with Juto? How long is the respawn time if I control 3 guardian stones?

Lack of preparation

Siege is not just another Dead Front since there are only 2 sieges you can play per month (unless you have characters on both servers and both are high levels). You should be prepared for a whole hour of action, some of my personal suggestions are:

-Take all your resistance there (if you don’t have, make some sets and buy necks).

-If some part of your gear or weapon sucks or you just broke it, try to get one lent from a friend just for Siege.

-Use all the consumable items you need (the ones from Dead Front or North Ares).

-Buy (or win) an Orphina Seal and Clear Water of the Volcano just for siege, they are awesome. (You can also farm the timed rings from Crespo, some of them have crazy effects and you can wear them with personal item).

-Bring all your personal items (like Dark Eye or the Critical Ring, each one will be useful at some point).

-Buy enough pots for 75 minutes.

-Try to get Ventrilo or Team Speak.

-Meet and know your guildies (guild hoppers have extra work here).

-Know your enemies weakness (Make some class break and level break).

-Minimize your lag (Restart your PC before the Siege, use the lowest graphics, turn ads off, close the other programs, etc).

-Guild HAS to have 50 members for siege, you can go in with less people, but really, FIFTY is the ideal number, get some fillers from your friend list if someone felt sleep or can’t connect, the one with most people always has the advantage.

-Watch previous Sieges.

Have a nice Siege.

The B L A D E R Guide - C A B A L Online

Cabal Blader Guide

Thanks to maroons2 of the Cabal forums from E-games PH.

The B L A D E R Guide

Update History:
030209 - The guide was posted
030309 - +7 equipments/weapons added (changed some of the pictures), added duration of buff skills
030409 - added explanation on how the range of BS & LS works, changed/added some pictures, credits section
030509 - added an accessory guide for bladers, converted post#4 as the 3rd page of this guide

The Stats:

  • Str and Dex for bladers give the same attributes, period. Therefore, only 2 types exist, the str/dex type and the int type (if you are out of your mind).

  • Just follow your growth stat requirement and just use int extract potions later.

  • Summarizing this skill rank bonuses table, the total bonuses that a blader will receive at trans/trans are:
  1. Str+96
  2. Dex+192
  3. Int+96
  4. MP+810
  5. HP+810

  • The only category for bladers is whether they are heavy or light.
  1. Heavy types- wears armor set
  2. Light types- wears the martial set

  • Why use armorset? The best reason I think is because of PVP. Armorset gives higher def which is benefitable in PVP.
  • how about martial set? This is the best set for PVE, coupled with blader’s super high defrate, I think we are the best in terms of solo PVE because our survivability is relatively higher compared to other classes.

  • Take note that bladers follow warrior’s stat requirement in terms of armorset. And also, the highest armorset set type that we can wear is up to osmium only because shineguard and mithrilset(WA) is obviously for warriors only.
  • If you’re a good observant, you can see from these pictures that the armorset is only good for PVP when you aren’t lvl99 yet, why?

Osm armorsuit vs Osm martialsuit -> Osm armorsuit (higher def, lower defrate)
Mysticsuit(BL) vs Osm armorsuit -> Mysticsuit (higher def, higher defrate, but lesser slot/options/enchantments)

  • so if you’ll be patient enough to just do PVE till you reach lvl99, you don’t have to settle to armorsuit and be a light type blader all the way (if you dont care in getting crafted/ force enchanted ones).

are you AMAZED by these weapons? Yes, they are amazing including their price tags as well.

4 types of weapons (blade/katana) are used by bladers and each has its own pros and cons:
  • Titanium- has the best upgrades/options/crafts since it’s the lowest weapon among the four, meaning it has the lowest atk and atkrate.
  • Osmium- has good upgrades/options/crafts also and 2slotted types aren’t rare. It’s the most popular weapon, I think.
  • Redosmium- has higher atk and atkrate than osmium, but 2slotted/crafted/with option types is rare.
  • Mithril- the best ofcourse and the dream weapon of everyone. It has the highest atk and atkrate but the rarest (2 slotted types is super rare) and the hardest thing to upgrade (craft,options)

the best advice that I can give is to settle for a good titanium or osmium until you have the alz for a good mithril type (don’t buy unupgraded/unslotted types just for the reason of experience; it’s a waste of money!)

so what shall it be? Katana or Blade? This should be simple
  • Katana- atk rate (requires more dex)
  • Blade- atk (requires more str)
  • But since STR=DEX, stat shouldn’t be a problem.

  • But the difference is so small; in fact, negligible in my opinion, so just go with what gives a better appearance. Many choose katana for its stylish, curved look.
  • But some people makes this issue a little bit complicated, although I don’t want to share to you the recent myths about this 2 weapon, its better that you disprove or prove it to yourselves.
  • Blade- follow the cast time for a given blader skill
  • Katana- “decreases cast time of a skill by some amount” (quoted because it’s NOT PROVEN!)

To summarize the stat requirements of the weapons and equipments:

+6 mithril blade (str-402 int-67 dex-268) atk-165 atkrate-649
+6 mithril katana (str-268 int-67 dex-402) atk-163 atkrate-652
+6 redosmium blade (str-334 int-56 dex-223) atk-126 atkrate-493
+6 redosmium katana (str-223 int-56 dex-334) atk-124 atkrate-496
+7 osmium blade (str-340 int-57 dex-227) atk-126 atkrate-493
+7 osmium katana (str-227 int-57 dex-340) atk-125 atkrate-496
+7 titanium blade (str-256 int-43 dex-171) atk-102 atkrate-398
+7 titanium katana (str-171 int-43 dex-256) atk-101 atkrate-400

+0 mithril suit(BL) (str-351 int-70 dex-351) def-94 defrate-183
+6 mystic suit(BL) (str-278 int-56 dex-278) def-95 defrate-170
+7 osmium martialsuit (str-283 int-57 dex-283) def-91 defrate-154
+6 osmium armorsuit (str-445 int-56 dex-111) def-91 defrate-102

So in making a build for your blader, the best thing to do is to base it on stat requirements of the weapons and equipments that you will wear.

Example build would be (minimum stats):
  1. str- 445(+6 osm armorsuit)
  2. int- 70(+0 mithril suit BL)
  3. dex- 402(+6 mithril katana)

After the lord of war patch, skill grinding for dual transcender at low level isn’t possible anymore.
Certain character level/ class rank should be achieved before skill grinding can be continued which is provided by the table above. Also Change Force skill isn’t available anymore and magic/sword skills will both receive exp whether you use magic or sword skills.

Still, these three are the best in skill grinding when using sword skills.

And any 3 of these for skill grinding using magic.

The Skills

these are the skills that are common to all classes in cabal. I’m not 100% sure about CT and the CD. Did you notice that the AMP for the skills is higher from what is stated before you buy them from the NPCs? It’s because of the AMP bonus

*Whenever you raise a skill level to the next tier, an extra 0.05 AMP will be added to the skill.
Tier 1 ? Lv 1 ? 9
Tier 2 ? Lv 10 ? 12
Tier 3 ? Lv 13 - 15
Tier 4 ? Lv 16 - 18
Tier 5 ? Lv 19
Tier 6 ? Lv 20
Hence, at Level 20, the spell has 0.25 AMP more than when it is Lv 9.

these are the sword skills of the blader. This table doesn’t mean that you get all of them and level them all to 20 because first, at transcender we can only have 21 slots for skills and second, our skillpts are not enough to make them all level20.

Blade Scud and Lightning Slash

What does the orange-colored text in the BL skills Blade Scud and Lightning Slash mean?
Many people are confused over this 1-7 or 1-3 range, thinking that it grants them the ability to cast their skill on a monster from that range.
- Not true.
To get range, there has to be at least 1 additional target between you and the selected target.
Gets? Here are some situations…

Situation 1
- Let's say I want to hit an enemy that is 7 cells away from me. If there is/are no other enemy/ies between me and my target, my BL will walk up to the target at minimum range (being 1) before my skill is casted.

Situation 2
- From the previous situation, if I place an enemy/ies between me and the target enemy at range 7, my character will cast the skill immediately, taking a moment to travel the distance (“walking in the air” effect) and hitting anything along the way till it hits the enemy at range 7.

Any dis/advantage from the 2 situations?
In Situation 1, when you cast Blade Scud at that range, you get 6 hits on it, a full output of damage on the same target.
In Situation 2, when you cast Blade Scud, you get 1 hit per range. By the time you get to the target itself, you only deal 1 hit on it.

In choosing skills, these factors are important to consider:
Down ? A secondary effect that makes a target fall onto the ground.
Knockback ? A secondary effect that knocks the target back and also fall onto the ground.
Stun ? A secondary effect that stuns the monster. It’s ineffective against certain monsters. Duration is reduced against players.
HP down ? A secondary effect that reduces the monster’s HP. It can be resisted by higher-level monsters.
*CT/CD, ability to be spammed or put into combo.
*damage it deals to the receiver.
*limit or area of effect of the skill (4 has the largest aoe).

Buffs are categorized into 6 types and no 2 buffs of the same type can be used until a certain class rank is achieved.

strengthen equips……….aura barrier, natural hiding
strengthen weapon…….blade force*, blade aura*, soul blade*, intense blade
strengthen spirit………….concentration, intuition
strengthen body………….iron skin, regeneration*

The accessories in Cabal have a very big role on what kind of life a player will have. Is he/she going to deal huge amount of damage? Will he/she survive better against his/her opponents? Will he/she be rich in no time?

*For us bladers, we want to give the highest damage as possible to our foes. From our skills, we are known as natural crit dealers, and adding the DB weapons and helms that we can get, IMO I think we should focus on the critical rate especially for the rings and just choose what’s better for the other accessories (So a perfect DB crit dmg increase weapon/helm is what we need). Here’s a list of accessories that I recommend for bladers (I didn’t include “of Seven Coins” set anymore):

Battle Aura

After you complete your level 20 test, you will obtain Battle Aura. Battle Aura has 6 aura codes, ranging from Water, Ice, Fire, Lightning, Earth and Wind. There is no known stat bonus difference between the Aura Codes, so just choose the graphical appearance you prefer.

*Battle Aura can be stacked onto Battle Mode 1 and Battle Mode 2 and can be used in combo after certain class rank is achieved.


After you complete your level 30 test, you will obtain Illusionist. The Illusionist mode is basically an even more powerful version of battle aura. It will give a huge boost on your critical rate and damage.


The Grappler mode turns you into a butt kicking duelist that is a master in the art of 1 on 1 combat. Your swords transform into shiny 3 bladed blue claws. When you activate grappler, most of your skills will be unusable during that time, with the exception of Assault, Double Rising and Blade Scud. During this battle mode, you can attack a single monster with god-like attack speeds, like around 3-5 hits in less than a second.

Crushing Blow

  • Grappler mode also comes with a skill Crushing Blow. When you activate this skill, you leap high into the air, and dive down onto your target. If you deal a critical hit, it is instant death for monsters and people alike. (The victim in the picture is a Reddish Cauda and the blader dealt a damage of Thirteen Thousand Seven Hundred and Seventy Seven!).
  • Grappler is thus awesome for PVP, and it’s very effective at taking down hard monsters that have lots of HP. If a full blown Crushing Blow doesn't instantly kill, it has the potential of dealing 10k damage or more.

Skill Build and Skill Combo
*At transcender, we have a total of 21 slots for our sword skills.

GENERAL BUFFS- obviously, their levels should be maxed
#1 Aura Barrier
#2 Soul Blade
#3 Concentration
#4 Iron Skin
#5 Mirage Step

PVP ORIENTED BUFFS- the reason why I said that they’re inclined to PVP more is because of their short duration. Also, all of them except art of fierceness can’t be stacked to the general buffs until lvl 140 quest is finished. Anyways, I’m not prohibiting you to use it in PVE also if you want. Obviously, they should be maxed.
#6 Intense Blade
#7 Intuition
#8 Instant Immunity
#9 Art of Fierceness

DEBUFF- Field of Fear, our only offensive buff.

#10 Field of Fear

SWORD SKILLS- the levels here are the ones that I prefer. Anyways, its level will still depend on the user as usual.
#11 Assault- 18
#12 Vital Interfere- 12
#13 Double Rising- 20
#14 Storm Grind- 20
#15 Twin Moon Slash- 18 (take note that this skill isn’t like assault, you cast it like a range magic skill)
#16 Mirage Grind-20 and/or Blade Cry- 18
#17 Lightning Slash- 9
#18 Blade Scud- 9
#19 Force Kick- 9 (some BLs replace this with assault for them to get both mirage grind and blade cry)
#20 Dash- 9
#21 Fade Step- 9

*I believe that there should be NO single standard combo for all our skills and also for other classes as well. A wise player will not rely on a specific combo all the time because this just gives a hint for the opponent on how to kill the blader.

Leveling Guide for levels 1 to 30 - All factions

Angels Online Leveling Guide for levels 1 to 30 for all factions

Angels Online (or Angel Love Online) is a free-to-play 2D massively multiplayer online role-playing game. Credit goes to Azorio from the Angels Online forum for this guide.

Angel Lyceum:
Levels 1 to 5:
Kill some Lilys and Slarms in West or East Playground, but before talk to Battle Professor, Magic Professor or both to do the quests about killing 10 Slarms (Battle) and 10 Lilys (Magic).

Levels 5 to 10:
Continue doing the quests from Battle Professor and Magic Professor but now choose the 2nd grade quest because you are able to kill some Wind Elves and Water Elves. Be careful with Wind Lord and Water Lord.

Levels 10 to 15:
Now you are able to do the 3rd grade quest from the Battle and Magic Professor, go and kill some Earth Elves and Fire Elves. Be careful with Earth Lord and Fire Lord, the bosses of them.

Now you can talk to Angels' Tutor to graduate but if you want (when you have 15 hour credits) go and talk to Michael and ask him for the Top Student Quest, but I recommend you go with a good team because it will be hard.

Now I will write about leveling in the four different Factions:

Aurora Faction:
Levels 15 to 20:
First kill some Field Mice while you are doing the Chef's quests (near the Field Mice area) then, in level 17 kill some Pumpkins and Jackstraws, but be careful with the bosses of them. Train in Spike Farm killing those monsters until you are level 20.

Levels 20 to 25:
You can kill in two different places in Dawn Harbor or Sunflower Plain. I recommend you Sunflower Plain until you are 22, killing some Magic Pumpkinman (always doing the quests from the NPCs in that scene). When you reach level 22, go to Dawn Harbor to kill some Turtles and Grey Mice, but be careful because killing 2 or more at the same time will be dangerous, then kill some Soldier Crabs until you reach level 25. Remember do the quests from the NPCs in the scene.

Levels 25 to 30:
Go to Riprap Coast and kill some Harp Sheep until you reach level 27 (or 26 if you get bored of them), then with a friend kill some Riprap Pirates until you are level 28 or 29. Now you are able to kill some Piratekins until you reach level 30. When you reached it, go and train in Cherry Village.

Breeze Woods:
Levels 15 to 20:
In Dense Forest kill some Forest Monkeys until you reach level 17, do the quest about killing 20 Forest Monkeys. After that, kill some Wild Lilys and Nest Tree Elves until you reach level 20. Remember do the quest from the NPCs.

Levels 20 to 25:
In Mushroom Forest kill some Red Mushrooms and Mane Boars until you reach level 23 (or 22 if you get bored, but I recommend you reach level 23). Then kill some Purple Mushrooms until you reach level 25, but be careful because they can poison you. I recommend train with a friend.

Levels 25 to 30:
Now return to Dense Forest and go to Cryptic Moon Swamp to kill some ElvesMarsh Frogs and Mud Crabs until you reach level 30. Remember do the quest that NPCs from the scene ask you. When you reach level 30 go and train in Jade Vale with a friend.

level 160-200 - Penumbral spirit hunters at ruins (beware of spirit boss mobs in those camps)
level 170-200 - Various dynacamps in penumbra (a bit more risky than spirit hunters but you can get better patterns IMO)

And soul dredges/spirit hunters are a very nice place for shades to solo. They are mobs with low AR so you can easily take out the whole camp (without boss) at the same time in adonis around level 170

2moons PK guide

2moons simple PK guide - what you need to remember before engaging in PK

This is not a class specific guide or how to kill an enemy in 2moons PK but what you need to know when you want to engage in the 2moons PK server.

A lot of 2moons players like joining PK in 2Moons. The exciting part (and annoying to some) is that it is not only possible to kill other players but also you get punished by it. Here are some details on about PK and also on its consequences:

a) Set your return point to Parka Temple if you are level 60 or less (I am level 59 so I can't talk about what happens next) so if you PK and you are red, at least you'll be able to kill some monster and lower your IP without being attacked by a swarm of PK killers.

b) Use first your strongest attack, use the surprise effect.

c) If the guy is busy fighting other monster (specially a mob) it's even better, he'll get confused and may not realize you are attacking him and not the mob.

d) If he is in a mob makes sure you manage to select him otherwise he may use the mob to protect him from your skills.

e) If you get IP higher than 500 and you die you go to prison. You must wait there (logging off will not help!) until your IP lowers to 500. A possibility is to pay bail but it expensive (1kdil per IP).

f) If someone kills you while you are red you lose 15 IP points.

g) If someone kills your pet while you are red you lose 9 IP points

If you want to PK, you'll be needing more dil (2moons currency). Since I love PK, I do buy dils from in-game currency stores. I would recommend www.GAMERCE.com for your gold needs. I find it cheaper purchasing there since it's a player to player trade.
