    Question [GUIDE] Ultimate Twin Saga Beginner Guide

    I'm planning to cover all the essentials of the game in this thread. It might take a while so this will be work in progress for now.
    Hopefully this guide will help some people with getting started. I know how frustrating and discouraging it can be to start a new game without knowing a thing.

    If you DO NOT have the official Twin Saga client: If you DO have the official Twin Saga client:
    Step 1:
    Download the TwinSaga.to client.

    You will need Torrent program installed on your computer to download it.
    If you don't have Torrent client in 2017, about time you get it, grandpa. You can download Torrent client for free here.


    Step 2:
    Extract downloaded files into a folder.

    It is recommended to disable your antivirus before this step as it might interfere with the installation process from this point.

    Step 3:
    Download the manual patch and place it into your game client folder.

    Step 4:
    Run the manual patch and wait until it's done updating your client.

    Step 5:
    Run the launcher that is inside your game folder. It will continue updating your client until it reaches the current game version.

    Once your launcher is done updating, you can start playing the game. You may enable antivirus now if you disabled it to install the client.
    Step 1:
    (optional)
    Make a copy of your official Twin Saga client folder if you'd like to keep the original one, too.

    Step 2:
    Download the Client Converter.

    It is recommended to disable your antivirus before this step as it might interfere with the installation process from this point.

    Step 3:
    Open the Client Converter and point it to the Twin Saga client location.

    Step 4:
    Download the manual patch and place it into your game client folder.

    Step 5:
    Run the manual patch and wait until it's done updating your client.

    Step 6:
    Run the launcher that is inside your game folder. It will continue updating your client until it reaches the current game version.

    Once your launcher is done updating, you can start playing the game. You may enable antivirus now if you disabled it to install the client.
    TIP: If you installed everything correctly and the client works but you are unable to log in into the game (client says you are using wrong ID/password), make sure you are using credentials of your game account (forum and game accounts are separate. You can create game account here).
    TIP 2: When making game account make sure your password contains at least one uppercase letter. Even if passwords without uppercase letters are accepted during registration, you won't be able to log in with it to the game client. If you have password without any uppercase letters, change your password.

    As of today, Twin Saga has 13 different classes:






    Swordmaster, Mage, Gunslinger, Dragonknight, Monk, Magic Cannon and Samurai classes are available at character creation, from level 1.



    Cleric, Paladin, Hunter and Rogue are unlocked later, through the main quest.
    Berserker and Occultist classes both require special license obtained in a dungeon to unlock (Aurora Sanctum (lv45) for Berserker, Dragon's Abeyance (lv50) for Occultist).
    So what class should you pick?

    It doesn't really matter what you pick at first, you will be able to change your class without any limits or cost at any point in game (even inside of a dungeon, just be out of combat), as long as you have other classes unlocked.
    However, you should choose class that you are going to main as early as possible because you get most class experience doing main quest with that class. Leveling other classes above ~lv40-50 takes a lot of time if you are out of main quest missions.


    As for what class you should play, well, that's up to you. (duh ... you ain't helping.)

    However, if you would like some insight on each class, read on (this is more based on public opinions rather than actual calculations.)

    Samurai is the latest released class meaning it is the strongest (x-legend thing). Has insane burst, some sustain (lifesteal), gap closer and is overall broken af. Just pick this if you want to be op.
    Magic Cannon - arguably 2nd strongest class after samurai. Really good for soloing stuff. At higher level has really good sustain (lifesteal on every crit). Has big range and burst. Quite a lot of people find it boring to play because most skills are identical to one another so you can just stand still and hold down keys watching the enemy melt. (My personal favorite class).
    Mage - class for people that have really well trained wrist ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°). Extremely low cooldowns make haste stat (global attack speed) op on this class meaning that there's going to be a loooooot of skill spam. A lot of people say that Mage is as strong (if not stronger) as Magic Cannon. However, Mage is really squishy and has no form of lifesteal so you will have to rely on your Senshis (or potions) for that.
    (One thing to note is that Mage is weak until you reach high level and is extremely hard to solo things with until you're geared. Not the best class for beginners).

    Paladin - probably best class to level up with. Tanky (primary tank in game, has 500% agro mastery), has healing skills and is #1 pick for people that get stuck leveling with other classes. Downside - tanky paladins are really slow when it comes to farming solo dungeons and party comps aren't really a thing in this game anymore so tanks aren't that needed.
    Monk - "mini Samurai". Weaker version of Samurai when it comes to damage. Both are melee and combat is similar. Monk has really good and useful party buffs, though.
    Cleric - healer class. Low damage (only 2 damaging skills, I believe) but extremely good sustain. Not very viable with parties being out-of-meta.
    Swordmaster - offtank class. Pretty tanky (can be secondary tank with 300% agro mastery), has good damage. At really high level (~68) has lifesteal.


    All these, I never personally played so can't say a lot. Don't trust me too much:


    Dragonknight - from what I've heard, one of the most fun classes in game.
    Gunslinger - lower range, lower damage and less self-sustained version of Magic Cannon.
    Rogue - really good class in PvP, when it comes to 1v1. Too squishy for efficient PvE.

    Hunter - pretty strong and fun ranged class. Has a pet parrot with horns, how cool is that.
    Berserker - highest burst class on official server (joke's on them, they don't have samurai).
    Occultist - mostly support class with prettiest skills in game. Rainbows, bubble auras, and can turn opponent into a little kitten. Kyaaaaaa.


    From experience I can say that all classes tend to be REALLY strong once really high level/well geared. Do not be discouraged to play something you enjoy just because me or anyone else said it wasn't that great.



    You can read more about classes on Twin Saga wikia.


    Class preview:






    Extra information on classes:

    Each class has 2 common skills that you can choose to use while using other classes. Read more about common skills in Sinchew's Guide on Class Common Skills (it's missing information on Samurai but other than that is very informative and useful).

    Each class has 2 Specializations: Regular and Advanced (unlocked at lv42). They give extra stats, passives, skill enhancements and so on.

    In order for some Advanced Class Specialization Tree Masteries to work, you have to have taken the same one on the Regular Specialization Tree!

    On Twin Saga you have separate Character Level and Class Level. Character cap at the moment is lv85, class cap - lv80.

    All the current in-game content is accessible at lv80 so leveling up above 80 is completely optional (it also takes a lot of time and is very grindy).

    Main quest is the most efficient way to level both your Character and Classes. (That's why, again, you should choose a class that you'd like to main as early as you can and stick to it until you're done with the main quest).

    Second best way to level is the "Chess Dungeon" in Sanctopolis: Constellacia:


    It has two different difficulties at levels 70 and 75. Both of them have solo and party modes available.

    In this dungeon you get experience for killing bosses (multiple bosses keep spawning gradually increasing the difficulty of the stage) meaning that you benefit from using class and character EXP badges, EXP stars, VIP coupons, elixirs and everything else that increases your EXP for killing monsters. Most of them are available for purchase in the LP shop.





    Even if you cannot progress with the dungeon when it gets too hard it is still worth doing at least the beginning of it. All the bosses that spawn in each of the dungeons drop exactly the same loot and give same amount of EXP.

    EXP gained per boss in Chess Dungeons (with VIP coupon (30% bonus exp)):
    Lv70 solo:
    Lv75 solo:
    Lv70 party:
    Lv75 party:

    Extra tip for leveling up: doing 10x Astral Quests gives you 10% bonus EXP for the day.

    1) Basics

    Recommended Gearing Priority List:

    (What should you prioritize when gearing, based on the impact it has on your character's stats. This list does not mean that you should only work on your Senshi once you +50ed all your Armor, Weapon and got all the best starstones. You can work on all the things at the same time but it is recommended to spend more effort working on things higher on the list first.)

    ~





    Have in mind that both offensive (increasing your damage) and defensive (increasing your survivability) stats come in many more forms, not just raw atk/def.
    "Detailed" stats are often acquired from starstones, evolving gear, gear bonuses, enchantment cards, etc.

    Offensive stats:

    ATK
    CRIT
    CRIT DMG

    % DMG dealt to Bosses/Elites/in PvP
    % CRIT chance on Bosses/Elites/in PvP
    % CRIT DMG to Bosses/Elites/in PvP

    % Melee/Ranged/Elemental/Arcane DMG
    Defensive stats:

    HP
    DEF
    EVA

    -% DMG taken Overall/from Bosses/from Elites/in PvP
    -% Received CRIT Chance Overall/from Bosses/from Elites/in PvP
    -% Received CRIT DMG Overall/from Bosses/from Elites/in PvP

    % Melee/Ranged/Elemental/Arcane Resistance

    You can see more in-depth character stat information by clicking "Details" on the bottom right of your character window.

    ~

    All the gear that you equip can be used by every class in game. This means that you will not need to craft a different weapon or armor set for your mage and swordmaster. Equipped gear does not change stats based on the class you use. However, your stat values will differ based on your used class's stat amplifiers (Class Features) and its level (points spent in Specialization trees).

    ~

    Almost all the items (or at least all gear) that exists in game can be found in Celestial Compendium. It explains where to find the item or what do you need to craft it.

    My other guide on where to farm gold, lp and other in-game essentials.



    2) Weapon
    (best weapon/armor data is not updated for the current level cap! Higher level armor/weapons were added, check Celestial Compendium!)

    Currently the best weapons in game are lv75 Yellow Weapon and lv80 Orange Weapon.
    Both of them have dps and tank versions:

    Lv75 Yellow Weapon
    (DPS)
    Lv75 Yellow Weapon
    (TANKY)
    Lv80 Orange Weapon
    (DPS)
    Lv80 Orange Weapon
    (TANKY)
    Requirements:

    Requirements:


    Can be purchased from NPC Sebastian in Arcadia
    +
    3x

    Obtained in Forbidden Frost City dungeon
    +
    800g to craft
    NOTE: lv80 Orange Weapon will have a random stat on it when crafted (1-5% attack/crit/haste) so you might have to craft it multiple times to get a good one.

    #####

    Weapon strengthening:

    1) Fusion

    All weapons have their Fusion Boost (%) value. Higher weapon's % - higher stats that weapon gives. You can fuse higher % weapon with lower one and the result will have higher of either weapons fusion boost % and enhancement bonus. However, fusion does not transfer enchantment card bonuses, they disappear.
    Note: you can only fuse weapons that have same name, level, grade.

    Weapons can also be fused with weapon EXP crystals obtained in Oubliette Labs and Taboo Workshop:
    2) Evolution

    Weapon can be evolved up to +50. Evolving a weapon will give you extra ATK stat.

    +20 evolution can be reached by using Gear Evolution Scrolls:

    To go above +20 you will need Advanced Gear Evolution Scrolls:


    Guide on where to farm them.
    3) Enchantment cards

    Enchantment cards are crafted in your Terracottage Workshop and give you Flat stat + % stat value. (for example 319 atk + 7% elemental damage)
    To make good Enchantment cards you need very high Gathering Profession level (60 for best cards). However, cards are tradeable so you can buy them from other people too.



    3) Armor
    (best weapon/armor data is not updated for the current level cap! Higher level armor/weapons were added, check Celestial Compendium!)

    Upper Armor
    (helmet | chest)
    There are 2 versions of each set, one that gives EVA and one with DEF.
    Lv78 Yellow Set

    Lv80 Orange Set

    Need formula? No Yes
    Materials 3x | 5x

    Obtained in Desert Canyon dungeon


    Blue lv78 armor piece
    Gold 320g | 480g 320g | 450g
    NOTE: lv80 Orange gear will have a random stat on it when crafted so you might have to craft it multiple times to get a good one.

    Lower Armor
    (gloves | waist | boots)
    There are 2 versions of each set, one that gives CRIT and one with ATK.
    Lv80 Orange Set

    Lv73 Yellow Set

    Lv78 Yellow Set

    Need formula? Yes No No
    Materials

    Blue lv78 armor piece
    5x | 4x | 4x

    Obtained in Astral Field raid
    5x | 4x | 4x

    Obtained in lv75 Chess dungeon
    Gold 260g | 260g | 260g 400g | 400g | 400g 500g | 500g | 500g
    NOTE: Orange gear will have a random stat on it when crafted so you might have to craft it multiple times to get a good one.

    #####

    Armor strengthening works just as the weapon strengthening (scroll up a bit). Fusion, evolution and enchantment cards apply the same way.

    4) Starstones

    Starstones are one of the main sources for stats.

    There are 4 different types (colors) and 4 different shapes of starstones.



    Starstone types (colors):

    Red starstones are only offensive, Yellow - can be both offensive and defensive, Blue - just defensive and Green - class specific.


    Trigon, Diamond, Orb and Hexagon starstone slots are unlocked at different levels.

    Starstones come in 5 grades (quality, based on border color): green, blue, orange, yellow and purple (pvp).


    There are many different ways to get trigon, diamond and orb shaped starstones:

    • World Zone monster drops (green/glue grade (not type) ones);
    • Dungeon drops (typically blue and orange grade);
    • Purchased in class-specific Arcadia shops (just blue grade, green type);
    • Crafted in Terracottage using Starstone Shards (blue grade, red/yellow/blue type);
    • Crafted using Fragments from tower-type dungeons (orange grade, green type);
    • Astral Field Raid drops (yellow grade);
    • Purchase in Celestial Compendium with Starpoints;
    • Battlefield (PvP) shops (purple grade, red/orange/blue type).

    Hexagon-shaped starstones can only be obtained by crafting them.

    To craft Hexagon starstone you will need:


    Orange grade Hexagon =

    Purchased in Arcadia at Sebastian's shop for starstone EXP

    +
    5x
    Obtained in Chess dungeon

    +

    100g

    Yellow grade Hexagon =

    Purchased in Arcadia at Sebastian's shop for starstone EXP

    +
    5x
    Obtained in Chess dungeon

    +

    250g

    _____

    You can reroll bonus stat on trigons, diamonds and orbs using Starstone Reshuffling Scroll (LP shop):

    To reroll bonus stat on Hexagon, you will need Ancient Star-Stone Reshuffle Scroll (they sometimes appear in LP shop during special promotions):


    #####

    Starstones can be evolved using different tier Starstone Evolution Crystals:



    Tier Where to get?
    I Drops in Solo Dungeons
    II Drops in Party Dungeons
    III Crafted:
    IV Crafted:
    You can refine starstones using Starstone EXP:



    You get Starstone EXP by consuming Ctarstone Crystals that drop from various monsters.



    ___

    Max refinement % based on grade (quality):

    Green - 130%
    Blue - 150%
    Orange - 180%
    Purple - 180%
    Yellow - 200%




    5) Senshis

    Senshis are companions that fight alongside you in battle.

    There are many different Senshis and all of them give different bonuses that are unlocked as they get evolved up to 4*. You can have 3 Senshis equipped at the time granting you their bonus stats.

    What are the best Senshis?

    All the most recent Senshis tend to have better stats than the ones released earlier in game:

    GoGo, Cherry, Cocotte, Emilia, Shirley, Yu Ji, Michelle, Chronos and Melody are Tier 1 Senshis giving significantly better stats than most of the previous Senshis.

    Natasha is an essential Senshi for any class that lacks sustain because her Ultimate Skill heals you for a huge amount (Restores your hp by 5% of your ATK value every second for 9 seconds (18s cd)).

    There are some other decent Senshis but for end game you should try to get 3 of the ones mentioned above.

    Full Senshi List with their exact stats can be found here.


    ~

    How to activate/evolve Senshi?

    To activate Senshi you need 10 of their contracts (books). Some Senshis appear in certain dungeons and have a chance to drop their books. Senshi books can also often be obtained from Astral Puzzle or purchased from LP, AP and BP shops (Senshis in shops usually change every month).
    Once you have Senshi activated (1*), you can place them in your Terracottage, do their daily quests and purchase their Gift Bags that might give you books.




    Note: some Senshis (Fina, Samuel, Zaro, Duet, Tristana, Stein...) require 10 books for each evolution (40 overall).
    #####

    Senshis can be Upgraded (leveled up) using Senshi EXP.



    You get Senshi EXP from Astral Fragments (dropped by various monsters):

    You can also increase stats that Senshi gives you by gifting them Senshi Gems:



    You get Senshi Gems by:

    1) Running Trio Dungeon (in Waking Wetlands);
    2) Buying them in LP shop (not recommended, very expensive);
    3) Doing Daily Senshi Quests, purchasing formulas in their shop (in Terracottage) and crafting gems. (These gems give much bigger amount of stats but they cost 50g + 1 Senshi Book to craft).

    Blue grade outfits can be crafted in Terracottage Workshop. These give small amount of stats (usually 2% exp + 1-3% random stat).

    Some of the World Bosses drop orange and yellow grade outfit helmets. You can see who drops them them in Celestial Compendium.

    #####

    Outfits can be strengthened with Outfit Enchantment Cards (crafted in Terracottage, same like gear cards).



    9) Costumes

    Fashion items, most of the time give some stats.
    Usually obtained from LP (and AP) shops, Astral Puzzle.
