RO Mobile: Swordsman, Knight / Lord Knight, Crusader / Paladin Guide

Been getting a lot of comments and heat for the builds I listed. They’re from researching the web and asking friends who are Knights & Crusaders. I’m learning and discovering as you are too! So, let’s make the RO Mobile community a friendly and helpful environment for all by commenting on what I can adjust! 😀 Thanks!

The tanks. Without you, we’d all be lying on the ground unconscious regretting not rolling a Swordsman. We salute you. Let’s get straight to it!

The Builds

There are a few job pathways that you can take:

Knight/Lord Knight

  • SVD Build (STR VIT DEX)
