Site Review

Dungeons: Barque is a decent starting nuker for your GB10 team. While his stats are rather average, it also means that he is tankier than other wind nukers such as Julien, Lushen and Arang. With two attack bar reduction skills, he serves as a good attack bar controller against the boss, helping to reduce the number of AoE attacks on your team.

Raids: Barque is arguably one of the best Hwa alternatives for raids. With low cooldowns for his skills, it allows him to provide a consistent attack bar reduction. His relative bulkiness also makes him easier to rune up than Hwa to survive the attacks. A fast swift build is highly recommended in order to take advantage of his attack bar absorption. 

ToA: One of his strongest uses here is as an attack bar manipulator against the different bosses in ToAN. Try to build him on a violent tank build so that he can survive a couple of hits.

PvP: Barque’s useful leader skill and single target attacks makes him shine in guild wars more so than arena. It is recommended to build him fast if you’d want to use him here. He can catch people off-guard with a constant attack bar reduction, limiting the movement of the enemy while doing good damage. As he will also absorb the attack bar, it also increases the number of times he gets to move. Overall, Barque is a useful monster in PvP content, especially when you’re starting out. However, there are better alternatives out there as you progress in the game.

Other advice:

  • If you’re building him as a full on attacker, rage would definitely be better than fatal due to his poorer base attack.
  • Try to aim for as much speed as you can and at least 45% accuracy. It is crucial for him to land his debuffs consistently for him to be effective.
  • Due to the short cooldowns on all of his skills, a fast Violent build would be very effective.
  • Definitely try to farm him for his January Hall of Heroes. All of the Pirate Captains requires skillups to shine. For those who are unable to get much of a use out of him, his brothers, Galleon and Frigate, are both incredibly amazing monsters that is more than worthy to be fed skillups.
Positives

- Can absorb attack bar  
- 3rd skill is a combo of the 1st and 2nd skill
- Nice base speed of 108
- Useful 24% crit leader skill in guild wars
- 100% chance to land armor break on first skill
- Very high 910% multiplier on 3rd Skill on a 3 turn cooldown when maxed

Negatives

- Average base attack power for an attacker
- Requires skill ups to shine
- None of his base stats stand out, completely average all around the board
- First skill (and thus 3rd) only provides a 1 turn armor break
- Outclassed by other wind nukers

    Great wind nuker if you don't have more viable options.

    Negatives

    He's too squishy. He needs defense buffed to be useful.

    My Barque’s stats
    HP-20507
    Attack-1394
    Defense-781
    Speed-126
    Crit Rate-35%
    Crit Damage-71%
    Resistance-18%
    Accuracy-4%

    I need to improve the bottom four stats, so he’ll last longer in toa and guild war.

    He can be a decent replacement for Hwa in raids. Should farm the HOH!

    Una genialidad del daño objetivo. no tengo mob que pegue mas que este loco capitan orgulloso. Un mob recomendado a buildear copado. es buenisimo.
    en arena se super luce, en dungeons si le das velocidad con sup es la ostia. y pongan sus skills al tope y PAAM, este muchacho se lleva la delantera del daño objetivo por lejos.
    combea: 3,2,1,3,2,1 sin parar, y ni hablar si va con konamiya, o woochi, etc, etc, es exelente. uno de mis favoritos.
    y aparte del super daño, es durisimo!

    Violent blade. Violent to keep absorbing attack bars making him a self bar verde. Mines SPD/CRIT D/ATK%. Acc, crit rate and DMG subs. He is very fast and goes first for defense break. 3rd skill is a killer.
