 Hello, and welcome to my Ragnarok Online Card Combo Guide!
With the semi-recent implementation of many new cards, along 
with all of the card combos, things concerning cards can get
pretty dern confusing. 

 I was very interested in the combos, but I couldn't find anywhere 
that had a simple way to find all of the benifits of them. So I 
decided to compile all the information on them that I could find, 
and the result is the guide that you see here. This guide lists all 
the effects of the cards in the combo, plus the added effects of 
having them all equipped at the same time. I hope you all find 
this guide very informative and useful. With that said, let's get 
started!

 Okay, now for the guide. Here is how it is going to work: I'll start
with the major, class specific combos (Class specific combos feature 
some effects that will only work if worn by the said class), then I'll
cover the minor combos (the ones that only use 2-3cards). I'll begin 
each combo with the combo's name, then the cards included (and also 
which type of equipment they compound on) and then I'll follow that
up by listing all the wonderful effects that the combo bestows upon 
it's user. Finally, I'll provide a description of the major combos and 
what builds/classes I reccomend for them. Shouldn't be too complicated. 
Here goes. 



 /~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~\
[ Major Combos                                      ]
 \~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~/

       -=Archer Combo=-

Cards: 
Merman (Foot Gear)            
Cruiser (Weaponry)       
Anolian (Armor)      
Alligator (Accessory)      
Dragon Tail (Garment)

Effect: 
HP Recovery +10%
SP Recovery +10%
Long Range Physical Attack Damage +20%
AGI +6
DEX +3
Flee +10
Seeking Attack +20%
+5% More EXP from Brute monsters
Chance of casting 'Coma' when attacking
10% More Damage with Critical Attacks
CRIT +7 on Brute Monsters
Chance of casting Improve Concentration on the user when receiving 
Physical damage. 
If the user has mastered the skill at level 10, it will cast level 
10 Improve Concentration.
Receive 5% less damage from Long Range Physical attacks
+5% More damage with Double Strafe and Arrow Shower Skills


Description: This combo is a must have for dex/agi Snipers. The
additional 20% damage, along with the dex, agility, and flee 
boosts really help. If you have a decent about of luk, you'll also
be dealing better damage with crits. The HP/SP recovory bonuses
are wonderful as well. The only downside to this combo, in my
opinion is the auto-casting Improve Concentration more than half 
of the time that you ever recieve damage, and that can eat up your 
sp. A great combo overall, though.   


   -=Thief Combo-=

Cards:
Shinobi (Accessory)
The Paper (Weaponry)
Wanderer (Garment)
Wild Rose (Foot Gear)
Zhu Po Long/Dancing Dragon (Accessory)

Effect:
+20% more damage with Critical attacks
Attack Speed +5%
Walking Speed +5%
Gain 1 SP with each attack
AGI +8
STR +5
Critical +3
Perfect Dodge +5
Flee +20
Skills do not use Gemstones
Chance of casting level 5 Cloaking when user receives Physical damage


Description: If you are a critical assassin, then this combo is for 
you. In addition to the extra 20% damage, the added attack speed, str,
crit, and agi will really help you do dish out the damage quickly. You
never know when that auto cloaking could save you. You'll be able to 
venom dust all you want without having to worry about red gemstones. 
The 20 flee is just as good as a whipser, and the extra 5 perfect 
dodge adds an extra 5% chance for the opponent to miss you. This is a
great combo. 


   -=Mage Combo=-

Cards:
Bloody Butterfly (Accessory)
Miyabi Doll (Foot Gear)
Parasite (Shield)
Evil Nymph (Head Gear)
Loli Ruri (Armor)
Harpy (Garment)

Effect:
Spell Casting cannot be interrupted 
Chance of casting level 3 Heal on user when recieving Physical damage
Max HP +500
Max SP +50
Max SP +10%
DEF +6
MDEF +5
INT +1
+10% more damage with Fire, Cold, and Lightning Bolt skills
Casting time +15%
MATK +3%
+20% Tolerance against Neutral attacks
+5% more damage with Napalm Beat
+5% more damage with Frost Diver
+5% more damage with Fire Wall


Description: Not a bad combo for any build of Wizard/Sage. You won't 
need a phen card, bloody butterfly takes care of that, and you'll
also be able to cast faster than the people who use phen's. The extra
HP/SP never hurt, and 6 DEF is great from cards, not to mention the 
20% resistance against nuetral attacks (That's just like a raydric 
right there!) . Various damage bonuses help out along with the extra
3% matk. Not a bad combo, especially since it works with so many 
builds.


     -=Swordsman Combo=-

Cards:
Assaulter (Weaponry)
Freezer (Foot Gear)
Heater (Accessory)
Permeter (Head Gear)
Solider (Armor)

Effect:
+10% damage with Critical attacks
Critical +7 on Demi-Human monsters
Critical +3
Perfect Dodge +3
DEF +2
MDEF +2
Chance of casting level 1 Weapon Perfection on user when attacking
HP Recovery +50%
Chance of gaining ‘Red Potion’ each time an enemy is killed
Max HP +20%
Max HP +300
STR +10
Red, Yellow, and White Potions restore 50% more HP
Do 10% more damage with Bash if Shoes are upgraded to +10
+15% Tolerance against Shadow Property attacks
+15% Tolerance against Undead Property attacks


Description: In my opinion, this combo isn't all that great. The HP
bonuses and the 10 str are not bad at all, but those are pretty much
the only great things about this combo. Get it if you want, but I
wouldn't reccomend it. 



     -=Merchant Combo=-

Cards:
Baby Leopard (Armor)
Hylozoist (Accessory)
Myst Case (Head Gear)
Raggler (Foot Gear)
Zipper Bear (Weaponry)

Effect:
Chance of transmogrifying a monster while fighting
Restores 1 SP with each attack
+20% Damage with Mammonite
LUK +13
STR +1
VIT +1
ATK +30
Chance of getting ‘Old Purple Box’ when a monster is killed
Chance of getting ‘Gift Box’ when a monster is killed
20% Chance of reflecting a magic spell back at the caster
Weapon cannot be damaged
Armor cannot be damaged


Description: Another combo that is not too great, although it is
not as crappy as the Swordsman one. 13 luk can help out with 
forging, and you never know when an OPB or gift box will pop up.
Regaining one sp with each attack helps a lot if you are a battle 
smith. If you had a Two Handed Axe[2] and two Zipper bear cards, 
the sp effects would cancel eachother out, but you would have a
whopping extra 60 attack added, and that combined with the Master 
Smith's 'Power Thrust Max' Skill can really deal some damage.  


     -=Acolyte Combo=-

Cards:
Cookie (Accessory)
Enchanted Peach Tree (Shield)
Fur Seal (Weaponry)
Geographer (Armor)
Rideword (Head Gear)

Effect:
Chance of casting level 2 Blessing on the user when taking Physical
Damage
Chance of casting level 1 Heal on the user when attacking
If the user has Heal at level 10, then level 10 Heal will be cast 
instead
Cast Time -10%
VIT +10
INT +1
LUK +2
MDEF +1
Accuracy +10
Flee +3
-30% damage from Devil and Undead monsters
+5% EXP from Devil and Undead monsters
Critical +9 on Devil and Undead monsters
+10% Damage with Holy Light


Description: This combo is great for Priests/High Priests. The 
faster casting time will help you do all those buffs faster, and
the added vit will help you to survive a lot longer. It also has
some great bonuses for Devil/Undead monsters, and that is what 
you will most likely be battling as you level up. Sometimes you
wont even have to manually heal yourself when you take damage!


    -=Clock Tower Combo=-

Cards:
Clock (Armor)
Clock Tower Manager (Head gear)
Punk (Garment)
Alarm (Foot Gear)


Effect:
INT +1
Cast Time -10%
DEF +3
MDEF +3
Max HP +300
VIT +1
Chance of casting level 1 Sight around the user when receiving 
physical damage
100% Chance to cast level 1 Quagmire around the user when receiving 
physical damage
If the user has Quagmire Level 5, then level 5 will be cast instead
100% Chance to cast level 3 Guard on the user when receiving physical 
damage
If the user has level 10 Guard, then level 10 will be cast instead


Description: This isn't a class-specific combo, but it has 4 cards so
I'd say it deserves to fall into the major category. This combo can 
really be used for any class, but I would reccomend it for a acolyte,
crusader, or mage type character.
