Pure means you put all your Attribute Points into one attribute and all your Skill Points into one skill. If you are a dueler or soldier then pure means putting all your AP and SP into dueling skills. As a fighter class usually all your AP should go into one attribute instead of scattered around. Benefits of being pure (non-fighter) is that you get access to high cash and high experience jobs quickly. You have a choice to make with the allocation of your points that will determine the rest of your game playing experience. You can be good at questing, you can be good at dueling, or you can be good at making cash and experience. Rarely can you be good at 2 of these, let alone all 3 of these. You will earn far more cash and experience working jobs and even dueling at times than you will completing the quests. Thought I'd throw some guides up for a few pure builds since people were asking for them. These guides are literally for 'pure' builds. Pure means you put all your Attribute Points (AP) into one specific attribute and all your Skill Points (SP) into one specific skill. I only did a few. There are far more skills you can specialize to become pure in, especially in the Adventurer class. The level you can reach each job is listed. This is the level you can do these jobs without any gear. In reality, especially after level 20, you will be able to do these jobs much faster once you buy clothing with beneficial buffs. All jobs sorted by character level. Big thanks to Elmyr for the spreadsheet. Due to the problems Imageshack has had lately in hosting some of the images I previously posted I am providing a link to a Gdocs spreadsheet. All Pure Specs are provided. Enjoy. click on this -->Pure Spec Guide<-- click on this $ = money, Star = experience, ? = luck, ! = danger, D = Difficulty, L = Character Level Popular pure class builds are: Worker/Construction Adventurer/Trapper Adventurer/Hider Adventurer/Swimmer Adventurer/Trader Pure Builds Simplified by Tim. Click http://forum.the-west.net/showthread.php?t=25787 Note: I do not recommend anyone go pure Shooting or Vigor if you are going to be an active soldier/dueler right away. If you are going to duel you need all the other dueling skills as well. This is only an example of jobs you can get and when you can get them if you did go 'pure' in the skill that fits your weapon.
