Angelic Buster is a DEX-based Pirate class, she is the second Nova race class to be released into the game. Players can only be female, since she is supposed to be the NPC named Tear, and have a choice between two hairstyles, two faces and any hair color. Angelic Buster uses her own weapon, the Soul Shooter, as well as a secondary weapon, the Soul Ring. She has an Emblem slot and a Dress Up System with her. She uses a system called Soul Recharge System, which replaces the use of MP.

Soul recharge system

Soul Battery skills are powerful attacks that must be recharged after use, and the only way to recharge them is by attacking enemies! Different attacks will recharge the skills at different rates, and the Affinity Heart skills can help them recharge faster. You’ll know a skill needs to be recharged when its icon turns gray. The Soul Battery UI lists all available Soul Battery skills and their availability.

The easiest way to understand the Soul recharge system is to think of each skill as having a really long cooldown (forever). After using a Soul Battery skill (one that appears in the Soul Battery column, on the screen) you have a chance of either reducing the cooldown to 0, or not. If it does get reduced, the words "Recharge" appear above Angelic Buster and the skill can be used again. If not, "FAILED" appears above Angelic Buster's head, and the skill cannot be used until a recharge is successful. If all of your Soul Battery skills fail, you will have to use your basic attack until the recharge occurs. Whenever a recharge occurs, all Soul Battery skills recharge. This is why they recommend that you switch between skills - once the first one fails, try the second one. If that one fails, try another one if you have it. This way you maximize your damage by using active skills (that do, say, 200% damage or more) compared to your puny, albeit quick firing, regular attack.

Pros
  • No Mana.
  • High mobility (grappling hook allows you to go upwards quickly, dash jump lets you leap horizontally quickly).
  • Can teleport back to Pantheon every 10 minutes, where the portal can be used to reach almost anywhere in the game.
Cons
  • Low damage at first and second jobs (not good for Aswan 40-60). This is because the first active skills only hit enemies one time.
  • Low armor (even with abilities)
  • Medium HP.
