-Hello! Welcome to the Bandit section of this FAQ, if you look to the left of you, you will see a STR bandit, if you look to your right, you will see a LUK bandit. Now you might be asking, what is the pivotal points that makes people go either which way. Its simple! STR bandits have a more stable atk range (i.e. 5-8) while a LUK bandit has a higher atk range, but isn't so stable (4-9). The choice is all yours!
Picked yet? Good! Now lets move onto your AP distribution.
• For STR bandits:
10-14:2 DEX 3 LUK
15-40:1 STR 2 DEX 2 LUK
41-[Lvl you cap STR]: 1 STR 1 DEX 3 LUK
-When you cap your STR, do 1 DEX 4 LUK, until you cap your DEX.
• For LUK bandits:
10-40:2 DEX 3 LUK
41-[Lvl you cap DEX]: 1 DEX 4 LUK
It is imperative that you do your correct AP distribution every level, especially if you are a STR bandit

Ok, now lets move to SP. The good thing about SP is that your AP build doesn't mean anything for your SP build.

• 1st Job
Lvl 10: 1 Double Stab (1)
Lvl 11~16: 3Double Stab (19 at Lvl 16)
Lvl 17: 1 Double Stab 2 Nimble Body (Maxed Double Stab, 2 Nimble Body)
Lvl 18~23: 3 Nimble Body (Maxed at Lvl 23)
Lvl 24: 3 Disorder
-Now you must choose if you want to max Dark Sight or Disorder, Disorder is useless compared to Dark Sight but I will include both.
Lvl 25~30: 3 Dark Sight (18)
Lvl 25~29: 3 Disorder (18)
Lvl 30: 2 Disorder 1 Dark Sight (Maxed Disorder 1 Dark Sight)

• 2nd Job

Here is a build with Mastery first
Lvl 30 = 1 Mastery (1)
Lvl 31-36 = 3 Mastery (19)
Lvl 37-46 = 3 Savage Blow (30 Maxed)
Lvl 47-48 = 3 Booster (6)
Lvl 49-54 = 3 Haste (18)
Lvl 55 = 2 Haste (20 Maxed), 1 Booster (7)
Lvl 56-59 = 3 Booster (19)
Lvl 60 = 1 Booster (20 Maxed) 2 Endure (2)
Lvl 61-66 = 3 Endure (20 Maxed)

Here is a build with Savage Blow first:

Lvl 30 = 1 Savage Blow (1)
Lvl 31-39 = 3 Savage Blow (28)
Lvl 40 = 2 Savage Blow (30 Maxed) 1 Mastery (1)
Lvl 41-46 = 3 Mastery (19)
Lvl 47-48 = 3 Booster (6)
Lvl 49-54 = 3 Haste (18)
Lvl 55 = 2 Haste (20 Maxed), 1 Booster (7)
Lvl 56-59 = 3 Booster (19)
Lvl 60 = 1 Booster (20 Maxed) 2 Endure (2)
Lvl 61-66 = 3 Endure (20 Maxed)

After 66 you can add your SP to anything you want.

An Alternate Build would be getting SB to 21 first then getting 19 Mastery and then completing SB (also, this is what you do when your a SinDit)

• 3rd Job
Lvl 70 = 1 Assaulter (1)
Lvl 71-76 = 3 Band of Theives (18)
Lvl 77 = 3 Chakra (3)
Lvl 78 = 1 Meso Guard (1) 1 Meso Explosion (1) 1 Assaulter (2)
Lvl 79-88 = 3 Assaulter (30 Maxed)
Lvl 88 = 2 Meso Guard (3)
Lvl 89 = 3 Meso Guard (6)
Lvl 90-93 = 3 Band ofTheives (30 Maxed)
Lvl 94 = 2 Meso Explosion (3), 1 Pickpocket (1).
Lvl 95-110 = Max Meso Explosion and Pickpocket, it can be done in any order you want.
Lvl 110-114 = 3 Meso Guard (20 Maxed)
Lvl 115-120 = ANYTHING(I suggest getting Chakra, it is much more useful than Shield Mastery)

Many people like to get 1 ME earlier on for training at Gobies.

Here is an alternate build where Assaulter is maxed right from the beginning:

Lvl 70 = 1 Assaulter (1)
Lvl 71 = 3 Chakra (3),
Lvl 72- 1 Meso Explosion, 1 Meso Gaurd, 1 Assualter
Lvl 73-80 = 3 Assaulter
Lvl 81 = 2 Assaulter (30 Maxed), 1 Meso Guard (1)
Lvl 82-84 = 3 Meso Guard (10)
Lvl 85 = 3 Meso Explosion (4)
Lvl 86-95 = 3 Band of Theives (30 Maxed)
Lvl 96-103 = 3 Meso Explosion (28)
Lvl 104 = 2 Meso Explosion (30 Maxed), 1 Chakra (3)
Lvl 105-110 = 3 Pickpocket (18)
Lvl 111 = 2 Pickpocket (20 Maxed),1 Meso Guard (11)
Lvl 112-114 = 3 Meso Guard (20 Maxed)
Lvl 115-120 = Whatever you want

Training Areas-
Lvl 1-10: Snails, Blue Snails, Shrooms
Lvl 10-20: Slimes, Shrooms, Orange Mushrooms
Lvl 20-30: Green Mushrooms, Horny Mushrooms, Wild Boar
Lvl 30-40: Ratz, Brown and Pink Teddy, Sakura Cellion, Jr. Cellion, Chronos

Lvl 80-90: Goby, Kentaurus (Any Color), Death Teddies, Master Death Teddies
Lvl 90-100: Vikings, Goby, Kentaurus
Lvl 100-110: Kentaurus, Squids, Viking, Dreamy Ghost, Goby
Lvl 110-120: Goby, Dreamy Ghost, Grims, Squids
Lvl 120-130: Dreamy Ghost, Jr. Newties, Skelegons, Skelosaurus, Red and Blue Wyverns
Lvl 130+: Skelegons and Skelosaurus. That’s the best option for anyone in the game at this point.
