When Satan Morocc re-emerged, some Monks abandoned their duty as loyal servants of God and chose to seclude themselves to further develop their physical prowess. They were looked down upon as "Power Mongers," but these Monks offered no excuses for their actions. In order to control their newfound power, they lost their humanity in the process. But they never forgot their roots and continue to use their power for righteous deeds calling themselves Suras - also known as Gods of War.

Sura is the third job for Monks and Champions. Suras gain skills that Monks and Champions have been lacking: Area of Effect attacks. Suras also gain a number of new skills and perks, including the ability to begin a combo at will; unique HP/ATK buffs and recovery skills; a maximum Spirit Sphere limit of 15 and two powerful skills based on HP: Tiger Cannon and Gates of Hell. Their ability to completely incapacitate up to 14 enemies for up to 8 seconds through the use of Cursed Circle proves formidable, especially in WoE where Suras are regarded as a core disabling class and necessary in every guild.

Upper Headgear

The HP/SP boost per refine on this headgear makes it very useful for both MVP/Guillotine Fist builds as well as Tiger Cannon and Gates of Hell builds. The two most popular card options for this headgear are a 4288.png Carat card and a 4582.png Bungnisngis card.

Typically used at +9 for maximum HP and SP leech while leveling. Good for any physical damage based leveling build to save spending on consumables.

The best headgear to use when fighting Demi Human monsters or other players in PVP and WoE. Card options include 4288.png Carat card for Guillotine Fist damage, 4582.png Bungnisngis card for Tiger Cannon/Gates of Hell damage and a 4366.png Kathryne Keyron card for TC/GoH cast time reduction.

The current best headgear to use Rampage Blast and Lightning Ride, at +9 for 7% Atk and 5% ranged atk. One slot to card it with Atk+ card.

Middle Headgear

Although expensive, this midgear is useful for the INT+1 and 2 Mdef it provides. Usually slotted with an 4269.png Incubus card for Guillotine Fist damage or 4198.png Maya Purple card to detect hidden characters primarily during PVP/WoE.

A cheaper slotted midgear than the option above.

Another popular midgear option, useful for its bonus +1 to all stats.

Lower Headgear

Useful for the +5 ATK.

3% reduction against Demi-human monsters.

+30 SP boost.


Excellent for Tiger Cannon and Gates of Hell damage due to the +20% HP. Obtained via the Battlegrounds.

Most useful all round shield for its 20% reduction from Fire, Water, Shadow, and Undead element attacks. To be carded with an appropriate racial reduction card.

Can be carded with a 4303.png Giant Whisper card for more damage, 4589.png Jejeling card for more HP or 4133.png Raydric card/4334.png Noxious card for reductions.
