This topic is about Magical & Hybrid Swordmasters [Moonlord]. We made this topic because both Carther and Asena are Magical Moonlords and because of that we want to share all our info with everyone.
First of all we will start with full Magical Swordmaster [Moonlord].
The warrior skills dont need any explenation. Its obvious that Rising Slash is lv6 and Impact Wave is lv4.
Lets begin with the Magical skills.
If you're going Moonlord it's kinda logical you get Moonlight Shatter Lv11+ for the EX skill.
Why only keep this skill lv3? Because it sucks. It's just a skill we use when other skills are in Cooldown. In PvP its nasty one tho.
[Cresent Cleve] Get this atleast lv5 to get 5 waves. This skill is very DESTRUCTIVE at big bosses because of the many hits. Max this if youre full MAG.
This skill is sooooo slow. Get a heraldry plate with 50% speed. But when you hit it has a big impact on the enemy's health.
Why Great Wave? Infinity Edge does so much more damage. But since you are going Moonlord (Mag) you need this skill to get Moonblade Dance.
Btw! It rapes in PvP.
Ok, let's do the Physical skills.
Why physical skills when you are Magical SM? It's simple. When you're Mag skills are still in CD. Then you gonna need some phys skills. Also when you are surrounded by alot of Mobs it's easy to break out.
Keep the physical skills lv1. You dont need any higher phys skills.
Why get Heavy Hammer maxed??? It's a physical skill!
It gives your enemy 42% less Defense/MDefense. This means that you're Magical Skills + your party members do much more damage.
Let's continue with the Parrying tree. In our guild we have 1 SM that doesnt use this skill tree. Why not? Cuz he is Pro.
We do not recommend to leave this skill tree behind. Because it's very usefull to optain less damage.
Hybrid Swordmaster [Moonlord]
For Hybrid SM you have to sacrifise your Cresent Cleve / Heave Hammer / Parrying stance / Counter Exile. What you get in exchange: Line Drive / Hacking Stance!
Both skills are good for PvP. But Hacking Stance is not usefull in PvE for Hybrid SM with focus on Mag of course.
[Hacking Stance] Said enough.
Line Drive Lv3 got so much more Damage then the other lvls. This skill pwns!!
It's sad you have to sacrifise Heavy Hammer. But this skill still gives 35% buff at lv5. Only 6% less.
Of course you can choose to downgrade Line Drive abit and upgrade Cresent Cleve. But that is up to you.
The Ultimate equipment will be:
Old Magic Weapons (Manti/Apo) together with the New (Wisdom) Manti/Apo Armor. Why combine the new set with old one. Simply because of the Set effects. With the Old weapons you will get 2 set effect that givs 36 - 36 Mag Attk. With 5 set effect from new set you get 147 - 147 Mag&Phys extra. Also the other New Set effects are much better then the old one.
But not everybody can afford this. So if you got the old set it's also fine. When you have the new set it is fine to.
With both sets try to upgrade weapons alot. And get the right potential. (Mag, int, str, crit, etc)
Our advise for both sets:
Old set: Stack up Critical
New set: Stack up Final Damage.
How to stack up Final Damage or Critical?
See the explenation about heraldry below.
There will be certain updates about accesoires. You can read the comments to.
For both builds you get these plates: Magic and Wisdom Life and Healthy Defense and MDefense
The rest is optional.
If you're going to stack up Final Damage. Physical and Final damage plate
When going to stack up Critical. Critical and Agile plate.
For both Final Damage and Critical. Try to get 3rd options on the heraldry above these optinial choices.
[Moonlord lv50 @ Manticore]
[Moonlord lv50 @ Cerberus]
[Moonlord Vs. Majesty]
[Moonlord Vs. Sharp Shooter]
As you can see here Moonlord is not playing at close range.
We hope that you guys got enough information and for questions. Just ask!
Good to know for questions is:
Carther - Old set (except helmet) and stacking up Crit.
Asena - New set (work in progress) and stackin up FD.
Carther & Asena
There will be certain updates in the future. Updates will be done by Carther.

At the moment I'm (Carther) kinda hybrid because I have almost full Sunset Manticore gears (except helmet). I am not rich enough to get new (wisdom) armor. So I am going to take line drive back. But I don't know what Lv I will make it.
Back to hybrid. I have 2,4k Mag and 2k Phys. That is because of the sunset manticore.

Simple answer to your question/comment. NOT ENOUGH SP........ (I hate it to)It is an hybrid build... We cannot max everything. Only god can do that.
Hi -Carther- im a moonlord too ^_^ i like u build except for one thing Cyclone Slash lv 3 :S this skill no suck too, no is nasty in pvp for me is VERY usefull i leanred to use it, i aim where i think my enemy will move it too in a certain skill lv (i dont remember) cyclone is more fast and big ^_^
If you are referring to the full mag build then yes that skill is sucky because full mag is usually a pve build since ur combo's in pvp are all weak and stuff also the damage gotten from crescent cleave lvl 9 and half slash lvl 7 is far better then investing in cyclone slash because it doesnt have a very big aoe so if the boss stops moving it wont do damage anymore.
if u are referring to hybrid build which is better in pvp, believe me the advantage of line drive at lvl 3 is far better than a bigger and faster cyclone since gears dont matter in pvp ( except prefixes)
What accessories would you recommend on using?
At the moment I'm thinking of getting 2 apocalypse magic rings and Wisdom Sylvie Anna necklace and earrings with vitality as the 2nd stat, are there any other options I could go by?
Also note I'm using the new Manticore set and at the moment I'm using the Diamond Sign-King accessory set
i think it all depends on the equipment set you have now cuz with new prefix system i think its harder to stack up much magic atk so id recommend get like 500 FD++ which can be done by 2 apo rings and hellfire cerb necklace and earrings (new ones) and a final damage plate
but with old sets im not so sure gotta ask carther about that :D
Well I'm using a full new Manticore set so that's already 294 Final Damage, if I get the Apocalypse rings and a final plate that stacks up to be 537 Final Damage with the Hellfire cerb that makes it 624 I think xD
But getting matk with the new Manticore set is hard T_T, so now it's the question of 87 Final Damage or 304 int haha
