Knight of Light – Mihile

Updated for Tempest

Mihile is a Cygnus Knight Warrior who can reach level 200. The character is gender-locked (male-only). He is melee class with high mobility. He uses one-handed sword and has a sub-equipment called Soul Shield which provides additional stats.
Mihile has a link skill called Knight Watch which can be passed to other character upon level 70. Knight’s Watch uses the power of light to protect a character from being knocked back.

Just like other Cygnus Knights, you can create an Ultimate Explorer through quest after level 120 and you receive 10% EXP bonus until level 120.


The mightiest hero can come from the humblest beginnings. The great warrior you know as Mihile did not always go by that name. Once upon a time he was an overworked stock boy at Mr. Limbert’s General Store, known only as “kiddo.” Little did that young boy know that his life was about to change forever…

Empress Cygnus long suspected that there was more to the boy than what met the eye, so she and Neinheart decided to test the young warrior. It wasn’t until Cygnus watched him defeat her minions with ease that she knew the truth for sure. Neinheart was skeptical, but Cygnus’s faith never wavered. She explained to the boy that his father was a warrior of great power; a warrior for good and a warrior for the light. He had left his infant son with the old man Limbert, planning to one day return, but he was never able to escape the great evil that defeated him. She went on to call the nameless kiddo “Mihile,” which means “Born of Light” in honor of his fallen father, Chromile, the Knight of Light.

The young Empress and her faithful follower Neinheart brought the boy with a new name back with them to Ereve. There he learned that “Only the darkest night can produce the most brilliant sunrise!”

You only has 94 SPs during 2nd job but need 100 SPs to max everything. You can choose not to max one of the following skills.

  • Soul Driver because it will be replaced by Radiant Buster at 3rd Job. Soul Driver is also slower to cast.
  • Radiant Driver because it is only a rushing skill. It is sufficient at level 14.

I recommend not to max Soul Driver because you can kill monsters with ease during 2nd job. Please note that Final Attack has to be maxed because Advance Final Attack (4th job skill) requires Level 20 Final Attack. Below is recommended build sequence.

  • Level 30: Soul Driver +1
  • add 1 SP to Radiant Driver for rushing.
  • add 1 SP to Rage. At level 1, it gives you ATT +11 attack for 60 seconds. You can add Rage later if you do not want to cast it all the time.
  • Increase attack speed by adding 5 SPs Sword Mastery and 6 SPs to Sword Booster. Level 6 booster gives you 50 seconds. If you do not use booster much, you can add booster later. In fact, booster can be added at any time depending on your preference and playing style.
  • max Sword Mastery to stabilize attack range.
  • max Physical Training to improve stat and attack. (You may prefer to max Rage first).
  • max Rage to improve attack.
  • add SPs to Soul Driver until 14 (or max Soul Driver here at your preferences).
  • max Final Attack
  • max Sword Booster
  • max Radiant Driver (or leave it level 9 if you maxed Soul Driver early).

Summary: Everything is maxed except Soul Driver remains at 14.

(MB) – Mastery Books Required.
