EDIT: This is a pre-RENEWAL build, but it might still be worth it in Renewal :-)
The name of this blog, Bowling Bash, comes from the eponymous Ragnarök Online Knight skill. Here is how to build a BB Knight (or LK). I am not an expert BB LK, but I used to play it a lot in WoE (guild versus guild events) and in small PvM parties. For PvM or leveling, the build is either STR(+DEX)+Spear Stab (you will need potions or a Priest) or AGI+Quicken (little DEX or Heal needed). To my mind, the trickiest and most interesting builds are those for WoE. Below are a few build possibilities; I suggest you adjust and try them so that you find the one that fits your needs perfectly.
|STR||buffed, try to reach a 10 threshold (eg 84+26, 99+31 or 55+105)|
|VIT||buffed, try to get 100 (eg 82+18 or 92+8) to gain Stun and Silence immunity|
|DEX||aim for an even number (eg 78+32) to get HP bonus; the more, the higher chance to hit your enemy|
|AGI||what is left; the more, the faster you can launch BB|
Below are several build examples. They are just build styles/aspects, as you will have to adapt them to your gear, whether you want to use food buffs, etc. In parentheses are the bonus points for Lord Knight job level 70.
|type||STR (+15)||AGI (+8)||VIT (+8)||DEX (+9)|
|High DEX, low STR, needs 2 Megingjard||35||40||82||97|
|6x STR, likely to use a Megingjard||67||41||85||75|
|High STR, could avoid using any Megingjard||97||12||83||56|
|Not using any VIT food||78||31||92||61|
