    (Testing with Level 9, Long Time Type):

    [UPDATE]: From what I tested out, this skill roughly gives out 30 % of cool down compared to regular usage. Or based on what the person told me, around a good 3 - 4 seconds.


    I chose type c for recaster skill, I think farther cast and longer buff, did I make a mistake??

    There's a video on the skills on the link which I had before, which uses most of them. But anyways, here . If you still need a SS I or someone else can take and show them.

    They all need to me maxed out anyways if you plan on JM with another class. But that's the order I maxed out mine in.

    It depends on how you use it. Since that skill is really as hard to use as heal light is for me, you would really need to get the aim right in order for it to work on people mostly, regardless of how long its aim would be. Since it has the long effect, it should be fine.

    I feel people don't like linker because it is not as straight forward like the priest I like linker because of my play style
    I like to fight but I also like to support my party. I use recaster on my magic type classes and I use barrier force on warrior type classes. Also I use barrier force in combination with life engage. by using barrier force with life engage it lets u take damage more damage like playing a tank for a magic user. u can have life engage and barrier force together have your mage or ranger come in the area and just heal them with link heal while they do there thing. Just play around with linker and enjoy.

    the reason why pr is preferred over linker is because of selfee heal. you can actually heal a moving target with it as opposed to the other heal skills. The other thing about linker is that if they had made recaster applicable on your self, then this would all of a sudden be very interesting (recaster + shining ray = ownage). However, I did test this on myself, and even when I dash after a cast and raced past the spell, I still did not get the effect of recaster. I guess they explicitly programmed it to not affect the linker, which really sucks.

    Life Engage Branch Type C (Longer Duration) Level 10

    Duration is 40 seconds where the effect stayed for 27 seconds; (so each player can get max 27 seconds effect time when in Life Engage; you'd still get 27 seconds effect if you get effect after 13 seconds after it was casted, but less if you get in it later than 13 seconds).
    Cooldown is 34 seconds.

    Original Max HP: 2788
    With Life Engage Max HP: 3788 (Life Engage add +1000 Max HP)
    +32 HP per tic

    Original Max SP: 941
    With Life Engage Max SP: 1061 (Life Engage add +120 Max SP)
    +19 SP per tic

    NOTE that these information can't be compared with the information stated in the posts above since the skill levels aren't the same.

    You got some typo for life engage hp part. You put +100. You were missing another 0. And I have a question is life engage makes you laggy and crash because before it makes me laggy and crash me out of game.

    For me It's nice... Only disadvantage is that you only have 2 base Class attacking skills, you can spam, with 2 others which are "extras" (in my opinion). The skills themselfs are awesome O:

    And I though a lot of players likes Linker? o_O? Mostly because of its buffs... :O?

    Most people want damage or healings. Linker doesn't have either of them, as it's only buff skills.
    Yea...Life Engage has increased natural hp/sp regen.. but not enough if one doesn't have other master skills yet. So they tend to dislike it. Maybe not if they would have e.g. Exorcist's Shining Ray and Priest Selfee Holy or so? Though most are ending up with Priest. x'D Personally I'd also end up with Priest too I think... ( º3º)

    I like linker for the life engage buff and the def buff circle. Recast is kinda useless and I don't see any difference.
