Ok so I have been following some DB builds and one thing a lot of people have been doing for 2nd job (30-55) is maxing tornado LAST; I argue this!
Based on the core training location from level 40-50 (CDs) the best skill is actually Tornado (at level 40 with free equips, little to no buffs, you can 1HKO them with tornado <--- if tornado is leveled!)
So what I did from 30-40 was alternating from Physical and karma;
1 point in physical = 3 dex + 3 luck, well that auto-assign puts +2 to dex per level so 1 point per level basically lets you cap @ 60 dex while still using auto-assign + using all equips for you level.
the other 2 points I was putting into karma which is OK, the 30 WA isn't bad (equal to Mikhails *Anger* buff)
however side from level 1, your only getting 1 WA per skill point... now putting the skill points in Tornado storm/spin not only adds damage by % (even if not as much as putting points in Karma) point in Tornado ALSO increases the mobs hit from 3 (at level 1) to 6 (maxed) and at CDs its not rare to find a group of more than 3.
So why tornado and not Slash Storm?
Well slash storm IS stronger, you should be perfectly capable of 1 hitting them with either of the skills; so why Tornado? RANGE!!!!
Tornado has a further reach (at least 20% further). *** I could be wrong but in cast time + cooldown tornado feels faster ***
Overall I feel putting 1 point in physical and 2 points in Tornado spin per level from 30-40 is the best build if you plan to train at CD's!
1 point in Karma is a must <--- before level 40 of course.
The end results should be the same; Max everything EXCEPT Sharp Slash and fatal blow, only 1 point in those.
This is only my opinion, please feel free to comment on your views and opinions on the matter though I ask, please use reason and not "your wrong..." thanx.
