***************************************************************************************************************************************************************
***************************************************************************************************************************************************************
HELLO GUYS!

It's me again. Your lovable, huggable, gullible and VERY VERY VERY ANNOYING forum member, Lance.

So I decided to make a professor just for fun and have been working with it for quite some time now. It's now at max level (thanks to Innovation xXx for the Cata invite :D) so it's time for me to build its equipment up for its sole purpose:- becoming a CEDI Prof. The goal of becoming a Cedi Prof is to be able to TANK most if not ALL of the Cedi MVPs, from those pesky Draculas up to the squid himself (other classes, like High Priests and Paladins can tank in Cedi, but only professors CAN SPAM Dispell). I've already read some stuff in the Professor Section of the Job Discussion Thread (even made a thread there) to get me started but sadly I didn't find anything in the Guides Thread. So I've decided:- IF I GET BORED I AM GOING TO MAKE A STARTER'S EQUIPMENT GUIDE FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO BE A CEDI PROF.

Then I got bored :(

In this guide you will see what I think are the perfect gears for a Cedi Prof as well as some other gears, as suggested by other players both here in the forums and in game. So let's get started!

***************************************************************************************************************************************************************
***************************************************************************************************************************************************************
HOW TO MAKE AND GEAR UP A CEDI PROFESSOR:

First things first. HAVE A LEVEL 255 PROFESSOR (For a leveling guide you can search the guides thread in our forums site). Otherwise all that you will spend on it will be irrelevant. After getting it to max level, start gathering your equipment. The goal of this is to gather equips that will give your Professor 99 Hdef (or more). "WHAT IN ALL THAT IS FUMBI IS A HDEF?" you may ask. To be honest I don't know either :D. But by asking around, I found out that HDEF reduces damage by percentage and can only be acquired through equipment and accessories, while SOFT DEF reduces damage by sheer value and can be acquired through your VIT stats (thanks to LemMe and mini myu). Don't ask me to expound this because I have no clue.

I've taken the liberty to put up what I think is "THE BESTEST CEDI PROF EQUIPS EVAH!!!". I am also gonna give you other gear builds based on what I have learned during my search. Please take note that all of the equipment will give you 99 HDEF (if not at least 90+). To be more accurate (pedantic is the correct term) I will put how many HDEF each equipment will give you (colored RED). Also the price range JUST FOR FUN (colored BLUE).

Let's start with the MOST expensive.

PERFECT BUILD:
This build utilizes all your zeny and resources to give your professor the best possible gears to reach 99 HDEF, and then some.

Spoiler


THE "CAN AFFORD" BUILD:
This build is for those who have credits and zeny but can't get the ones I mentioned above.
Spoiler


"DIRT CHEAP" BUILD:
This build is for those who want to get into the Cedi Prof action but can only get their hands on SOME of the stuff mentioned above.
Spoiler


SOME OTHER GEARS TO CONSIDER:
Spoiler


This gears are all suitable for Old Cedi Tiers D to B as well as the new Cedi. Some people might think so otherwise, but I'm gonna stick to these sets because I want to.

***************************************************************************************************************************************************************
Now for Old Cedi Tier A (there is no Tier A in New Cedi) you can either go for the same equipment mentioned above, or go for a 100+% (110% or above to be precise) water resist build. If you opted for the latter, here are some equipment that will give you 100+% water resist easy. I will also break them down according to HOW HARD (AND EXPENSIVE) THEY ARE TO GET. Let's Begin.
Spoiler

***************************************************************************************************************************************************************
Now, You might ask:- "Now I have the gears, but how in the world do I tank with my Professor in Cedi?". Below are some general pointers and tips on what and what not to do while being the TANK in each Cedi Tiers.
Spoiler

Now, you might want some specific pointers on how to deal with specific MVPs in each specific cedi tiers. I can do that.
Spoiler

I hope you learned something from this section of the guide. Now, onwards to the next.
***************************************************************************************************************************************************************
***************************************************************************************************************************************************************
OH, BEFORE I MOVE FORWARD, THERE'S SOMETHING I NEED TO CLARIFY:

Spoiler

***************************************************************************************************************************************************************
***************************************************************************************************************************************************************
NOW LET'S TALK ABOUT WHY I (AND MOST PLAYERS) BELIEVE THAT THE EQUIPMENT MENTIONED ABOVE ARE THE BEST FOR DOING CEDI:
ARMORS:-

Spoiler

ACCESSORIES:-
Spoiler

WEAPON:-
Spoiler

HEADGEARS:-
Spoiler

SHIELD :-
Spoiler

I will not be mentioning the other equipment mentioned in the guide simply because some already have explanations accompanying them. I also think the ones in this section are worth mentioning again because of their significance to the build.
***************************************************************************************************************************************************************
***************************************************************************************************************************************************************

At date, this guide is COMPLETE-ISH. If you want to share other equips that is great for Old and New Cedi Professors, then feel free to make a comment and I'll augment it here. For now, ENJOY!

CEDi EQ My Prof on CEDi NEW (Update)

Elu hat +10/Tenishi Ring (good if u have +8 above)
Great Old Set +7 - +10 (any refined) (except Go Ring, coz i used Vendor Clip + Osiris)
Strong shield +8 not good...better used vigi any refined with pushback orb.. + GTB Ogretooth (this is my personal used card...u guys can used alice card..its good too)
Hip Ribbon
+14 DEF Kris
Large White Wing + Mistress Card

 

Skill You Should Cast: Dispell/Land Protection/Volcano/Deluge/Health Convert/Soul Change/Wall of Fog/Safety Wall/Sight/Energy Coat/Magic Rod (all depend on situation)

Skill Buff Needed on You : Kaahi/Kaupe/Kaizel/Kaite (all depend on situation)

*problem when doin new cedi
- u might got stun/confius not sure, coz when i tank b2..i stay away
- u might got strip on b2 not really important if u stay far away from mvp
- u might need spam a bit yggberry/tressure berry... d2 and c2 mybe...but b2 not really

- u might be attack by pori pori not really hurt actually, its poring king damage...better to stay a bit away from MVP after sniper lock it

- oh ya!...before i forget on b2..pls Land Protect 1st before going to lure Poring King...why...Poring King will spam ton of Meteor Storm and for sure, that will knock all ur pt member...on d2,c2 depend on urs to used volcano/deluge or land protection...If do with 2 prof...Pls don't over-lap the LP (u know when this happen)...

 

*red text is updated one :D 29/9/2014

to be honest i stopped checking new equips and whatnots regarding this.

 

but as far as i know flying devil is the only lower that gives a good +10 HDEF. you can try using hip ribbon as it is a very good lower.

Instead of wasting 120 to 150m on Hip Ribbon its better to use the above gears to reach 99+ Hdef

I used hip ribbon before. it is a great lower headgear if u already have 99 hdef. imagine u get hit by a patk for 10m damage. but since u have 99hdef, it will be reduced to 100k. with hip ribbon, it will be further reduced to 90k damage. of course this is just a hypothetical. there are other damage reductions taking place(such as the one from over-refined equip)

 

nowadays, i use trump card on my prof but it works kinda the same as hip ribbon for cedi.
