Overview

A Super Novice is a special kind of class which exploits nearly every first class skill. Super Novices also sport highly effective armor and shields which reduce elemental attacks.

Super Novices are the most versatile among all classes have "true freedom" in build and skills. The downside to this freedom of skills is very low HP and SP, just like a regular Novice. Super Novices lose the use of the Play Dead skill and also lose exp upon death with 1 HP remaining, just like a regular first class. Super Novices only can equip anything a normal Novice would be able to, including specialized Novice only equipment.

Super Novices also have a Job Level of 120.

Additionally, Super Novices have their own unique cart, should they choose to get one.

Equipment

Unlike other classes, the Super Novice has a few pieces of equipment that are exclusive to Novices. The Angel Set is considered a Super Novice standard. They're all dropped by Mini-Boss Protocol monsters, and give fairly good stats. The Novice Card Set provides a good amount of Max HP and Max SP, especially at low levels. And the commonly known as the Light Gear, are able to be NPC purchased in Lighthalzen, except for the Novice Breastplate (Bought in Juno). Notably, they are cheap, they give more elemental reduction and are some of the few NPC equipments with slots. However, they aren't a true set, so the gear may be swapped out. Eden Group Equipments Quests are quite good for Super Novices because of the enhance Max HP and Max SP they provide.

Weapon

Due the Renewal, the attack speed of some weapons were adjusted, Maces and One Handed Axes usually are as better than Daggers and One Handed Swords, they have a greater DPS, especially to use Mammonite, and to use with Fury or to use with Chick Hat / Sidewinder Card / Snake Head.

Weapon Description
1208.png Main Gauche [4]
1217.png Stiletto [3]
1508.png Smasher [3]
1309.png Orcish Axe [4]
Main Gauche and Stiletto don't need Chick Hat / Sidewinder Card / Snake Head to use Double Attack. Good weapons to use with cards, the slots can be used with Race, Element or Size increase damage cards, can also be used with Inflicting Status, Zipper Bear or Andre Cards. Eventually some autocast cards like Mutant Dragonoid Card can be used.
Smasher is probably the best option of forged elemental weapons.
13066.png Eden Group Dagger III
Outclasses Stiletto, Orcish Axe, and other notable weapons unless they highly refined, properly carded, and/or forged. (ATK 165, MATK 80)
13092.png RWC Memory Knife [1]
Can achieve higher damage output than Eden Group Dagger III and most Super Novice weapons with set bonuses and appropriate card. (ATK 50. ATK & MATK +20 for every 3 refine levels. All Damage +5% if refine level is +6~8, +10% if refine level is +9 or higher. May autocast Weapon Perfection Lv. 1 when attacking)
1148.png Star Dust Blade [1]
Can achieve higher damage output than Eden Group Dagger III if properly carded and enchanted with Malangdo Enchants. Can be a great alternative to Platinum Shotel with two Sharp 5 enchants. (ATK 145. May cause Stun at 5% chance)
13404.png Platinum Shotel [1]
Requires Super Novice Spirit to be used, weapon for critical attacks, when used combined with Fury can reach 100 critical rate. (ATK 130, CRIT +50)
1543.png Brave Battlefield Morning Star
1542.png Valorous Battlefield Morning Star
1546.png Glorious Morning Star
Superior PvP and WoE weapons obtainable from Battlegrounds. Glorious Morning Star is slightly better. Due the refinement bonuses, Glorious can reach the highest DPS of all Super Novice melee weapons in almost any situation (PvM, MVP, PVP and WoE).
1622.png Hypnotist's Staff [2]
Can be used with Fabre (VIT +1, Max HP +100), Drops (DEX +1, HIT +3), Necromancer (INT +1, MDEF Piercing +2%), Centipede Larva (INT +1, MATK +3), Death Word (+5% damage inflicted with Napalm Beat and Soul Strike) or Hill Wind (+5% damage inflicted with Thunderstorm) cards.
1637.png Eraser
1641.png Glorious Cure Wand

These staves require Super Novice Spirit to be used, some are Two-handed Staves, they can be used in different situations (eg Heal, recover SP, attack), mostly of these have higher damage than Hypnotist's Staff and have some exclusive bonuses.

Due the refinement bonuses, Thorn Staff of Darkness (combo with Skull Cap) can reach the highest DPS of all Super Novice's magical weapons in almost any situation.

Secrets

Being a Super Novice has its benefits as well as disadvantages, and this class remains to be explored by many adventurers. Here are the secrets of Super Novicehood.

Doridori
Using the command /doridori restores HP/SP two times faster. You need to shake your head approximately 6 times in a 1.5 ~ 3s time period. A Super Novice insists that head-shaking supposedly speeds up his SP recovery. This only applies to HP and SP recovered by the skills Increase HP Recovery & Increase SP Recovery (Despite the description on the iRO website, this only affects SP recovery, not HP recovery at all)
Guardian Angel
A Super Novice has its own Level Up Angel. When leveling-up, this Guardian Angel is different from those of the other classes. The Angel will cast all skills from the following list, on the Super Novice:
Never give up!
According to hearsay, when a Super Novice's HP reaches 0 when he she is 99.0%-99.9%, their Guardian Angel may appear to refill his HP and cast Mental Strength on the Super Novice. This will not occur again until you relog or get another level.
Undying Love
A Super Novice wife will give +1 for every stat when she uses the marriage skill Undying Love on her husband. Also, the husband's SP recovery will double. However, the wife's stats will all be reduced by 1. This however only occurs randomly and temporarily.
The Power of Love
A Super Novice wife will heal her husband for 2x the normal amount.
Really Super
If a Super Novice can manage to avoid even a single death until Job 70 and onwards, he/she will get +10 for all stats. If the Super Novice dies anytime afterwards, that bonus will be lost. This death record can be cleared (and the bonus stats recovered) using Super Novice Spirit.
Super Novice's Cart
Super Novices get their own special cart for an extra fee (1900z) in Al De Baran behind the Kafra Headquarters in the Northwestern corner of the map.
Fury
A strange phenomenon when the Super Novice's experience reaches increments of 10% such as, at 10.0%, 20.0% - 80.0%, 90.0%. During these times, the Super Novice has been rumored to summon his Guardian Angel for help. If you change maps or relog, you have to repeat all the steps but otherwise you can just repeat the last 3 lines to get Fury status again. Type 7 lines of text (or you will be silenced) and then type the following phrase to get the Fury Status (CRIT +50):
  • Dear angel, can you hear my voice?
  • I am (your name) SuperNovice~
  • Help me out~ Please~ T_T
  • &
- OR -
  • Guardian Angel, can you hear my voice? ^^;
  • My name is (your name), and I'm a Super Novice~
  • Please help me~ T.T
  • &
& is random text. Sometimes you don't have write one more line after "Help me out" to make the effect activate.

Life After Level 99

Upon reaching Base Level 99, a Super Novice has a few new tricks up its sleeves.

  • At the moment of reaching Level 99, a Super Novice gains +2000 Max HP permanently. This bonus is affected by cards, but not by VIT.
  • The two Super Novice Secrets which depend on your current % of Base EXP can still be used, but you must continue leveling to gain the EXP required.
    • To Fury, you must gain n × 10.0x million EXP (where n = 1,2,3,...).
    • In order to use Mental Strength you must gain an additional 99 million EXP or more after obtaining Level 99 or 150.
    • Upon attaining 99,999,999 EXP (as shown on the character Select screen), you will be able to use both the novice chant Fury and Mental Strength upon 0 HP.
