    Priest tree:
    Holy light 10
    Blessing 10
    Royal Heal 10

    Tank Pet Necessary: buy high level pet with Genius and Devoted with staff or Knuckles, get rage attack and absorb hp as skills and focus on training hard vit only after acquiring those pet skills until discipline, level pet by minibosses near its level, and focus on adding points to vit until maxed and then int, and use pet heal skill to keep its hp up




    Make your own Mercenary Tank: on a seperate character slot make an agi knuckle character and focus agi and then vit maxed, during the building process use the survival set shared with the only difference is use player made 5th anniv knuckles vii refined +S with Mardula and then once you maxed vit, change the equipment to barehanded with shield and hp based equipments like nurethoth mask and any high hp% armor with eroded pilz xtal for armor and other high hp% xtals on other equipments, and make sure to have skills provoke level 10 shield mastery level 10 all the resistance skills level 10, hp boost 10 mp boost 10, and you will have your own personal merc tank to use as backup tank if your pet tank somehow dies, also you can use the heal skill to keep up hp until pet revives



    How it all works:


    For the survival set along with all the shield skills mentioned and land buffs you will have 100% physical and magical resistance which becomes 75% magical and physical resistance and the +S refinements will further reduce incoming damage by another 45%, and with the int and dex stats along with the equipments you will have around a decent 3-4k matk and higher, you can use mirage evasion while casting finale by evading during cast, and you can cast skills like holy light decently fast with this setup against higly mobile bosses thanks to dex 255, and you can also use mirage evasion while you are mp recharging and maximizering, and for absolute whole map death skills by bosses spam P Def until you nullified it, you can also use backstep in wide but not whole map boss aoe




    For the DPS Burst/Finale Set, you just use bitter gelatin High Speed Cycle and GSW and you can reach necessary motion speed 30% and cspd of 8k+ and with the equipments you will have 5k+ matk for high burst and decent iframes or high Finale damage, and you can also use mirage evasion while you are mp recharging and maximizering, and for absolute whole map death skills by bosses spam Elegant Poise until you nullified it, you can also use backstep in wide but not wholemap boss aoe




    Combos for the 2 sets:



    For Survival Set



    Impact-Finale smite-Holy Fist consecutive



    Ad Lib-Holy Light Smite-Finale Smite




    For DPS Burst/Finale Set

    Impact-Finale Smite-Holy Fist Consecutive


    Impact-Burst Smite-Backstep consecutive


    Ad Lib-Holy Light Smite-Finale Smite


    .......
    added Bonus advice: if you don't like gsw you could make conversion up to level 10 and get martial mastery stargem 10 and get annihilate 10 from crusher tree, you will be able to burst with 50% motion speed smited without needing gsw, and make sure to get 2s 5th anniv vii knuckles refined+S with int 22 int 10% matk 10% 20% cspd of all elements and xtals of Armasite and Usasama the Necromancer II !!!


    and thats all for the Super Burst/Finale Convertible DPS/Survival Mage Guide, i hope the guide helps, and if you are confused on any part of the guide let me know and i will do my best to help ^^

    I think you misunderstood the additional's stat. Was it "flinch unavailable","tumble unavailable" and "stun unavailable"?

    These stats make you not able to inflict flinch, tumble and stun "on the boss". It's not you can't be flinched, tumbled and stunned by boss.

    and this is what i watched an hour ago that inspired me to make this guide thinking the Additional gear Artificial Nails was the gamechanger to allow burst/finale hybrids viable without mtl lol

    The guide has been revamped and made to suit both burst and finale, i added that pet tanks and your own personal self-built-tank-mercenary are necessary and added tutorial on how to build and use them right inside the guide ^^

    Updated guide, use parsimony registlet and put spell headphones onto item auto use. farm bitter gelatins from coffee jellies in sykea manually. Use quick aura to lower hp to activate spell headphones via parsimony and then use heal skill, and congratulations you just saved time and materials for cspd!!!

    I'm not sure if spell headphones can be set on auto-item, it can only be used manually.

    I don't like to burst your bubble but:
    -Both Finale and Burst for staffs aren't wise, it consumes a lot of skill points and either of them is used only situationally (and seldom, depends on user)

    - By the time this reply was sent, you did not include the new Magic Warrior skill tree passive, I heard it is useful on adding Magic:Burst charges.

    -Holy Light isn't worth maxing on any staff builds possible. It is like Imperial Blast, even with DTE + 100% Magic Pierce, still can't deal decent damage on mere Minibosses.

    Aka
    For point 1, you still need finale lv1 as a combo ender even if you are a pure burst mage, aren’t you? Even you don’t level finale to 1, you still need Impact lv7 right? For a burst mage, your additional cost is around 9 skill points to go for a finale mage (25 skill points if opposite though. So, you are suggesting all mages should learn finale only?)

    For point 2, enchant spell can be useful for stacking up burst count so it can be a good suggestion. But well, whether learning a skill includes lots of trade off so better let kousunpo to explain. (I didn’t learn enchant spell since i don’t have enough skill points for my burst mage)

    For point 3, I do agree that holy light and imperial have low damage. But whether it is worth depends on how it is used (and personal value judgement), doesn’t it? So yeah, kousunpo needs to explain this.

    Finally, whether kousunpo gives satisfying explanation or not. I highly recommend you to share your own build if existing builds are so poor and you want more people to agree with you :)

    i have added in enchant spell and long range and royal heal to the guide, and to explain about holy light being maxed, it is because it homes on to the target and does more damage than magic lances up to about 200k+ as opposed to 45k+ of lances and it is inherently much faster than imperial and uses less skill points, so it can be used as dps in situations where bosses are too mobile for finale and bursts, hope the reason makes sense now ^^
