What is the TimeKiller Class, and how do you get it?
So you may ask, what is the TimeKiller class? Well, it is one of the calendar classes, along with ChronoMancer and ChronoCorruptor. Having one of these three classes unlocks the Time Killer badge. The TimeKiller class is a very strong class, and has many good attack combos. Like the other calendar classes, the only way to get this class is to buy a calendar from HeroMart. Remember, once sold out, they will never be restocked, so buy yours fast! Enter the code you receive in the package into your Artix Master Account. This TimeKiller Class will be given to the character you choose in your linked DragonFable account. So if you haven't already linked it, do so!

Why did you make this guide?
Well, since many people may not know how to use this class properly, this guide will show you the combos, attacks, best stats, fashionable accessories, and almost everything else you need to know about this class! It's all in this guide! But of course, these are my recommendations, so you must also use this guide discreetly!

How are weapons shown for TimeKillers?


Along with Soulweaver and Master SoulWeaver, TimeKillers are the only obtainable classes which do not have their actual weapon appearance showing while equipped. Instead, they have gears on their shoulders which change color according to the equipped weapon's element. But unlike SoulWeavers, if the equipped weapon has a special, it can still be activated. You can read more about weapon specials here

Advantages & Disadvantages


Advantages of TimeKiller

  • TimeKiller is highly buffed, allowing you to do lots of damage. (Note that all skills' damage have been calculated with the buff)
  • TimeKiller has comparatively low mana cost for skills, considering its strength
  • TimeKiller is also very handy in defense and healing, having mana healing, HP healing, blinding, shielding, stunning and weakening moves, which do a high amount of damage as well
  • TimeKiller is one of the only highly-offensive armor which has all the types of defensive skills and healing skills.
  • Since TimeKiller's 3:10 skill allows you to use the right side moves 5 times, you can also add in left side attacks in between the sequence

    Disadvantages of TimeKiller

  • TimeKiller's stunning skill's bug makes it an unhandy move to use, and is not very reliable when in a pinch.
  • The stunning move also does not guarantee a stun, even if the last move hits. There are times when it does not stun, regardless of the enemy's immobility resistance. This makes the stunning move even worse.
  • Though TimeKiller is the only armor which has all the defensive skills and healing skills, All defensive skills are on the right side, which requires 3:10, and is therefore not handy for immediate use; you have to use up a turn for using 3:10 first. This is only a minor disadvantage, though.
  • TimeKiller's debuffing skill, Break is useful as a filler move, but is pretty much useless as a defense skill. A 20% reduction in the opponent's boost is hardly anything, unless you've somehow stacked on another debuffing move.

    TimeKiller Strategies


    This section will show you all the combos and strategies for TimeKiller. If the first few of the sequence manage to kill your opponent, then good. But if not, follow the other steps. If the opponent is not dead with all these steps, repeat the sequence based on the steps given. Use alternative skills for ones which still have their cooldown going on. You have to be discreet while seeing combinations, and come up with your own ones too! Some notes have been given below each sequence to follow though and understand better.

    Weak/Medium Opponents: 88 mph -> Combo -> Unload -> Attack
  • Should kill a weak monster, but if the monster is not dead (would be the case of a medium monster, but rarely), use another attack and repeat from combo

    Tough Opponents: 88 mph/3:10 -> 3:10/88 mph -> Power -> Flash -> Final -> Power -> Combo -> Unload
    ..........................Or: 3:10 -> Boost -> Pulse -> 88 mph -> Power -> Final -> Flash -> Power -> Combo -> Unload (Note: Switching Flash and Pulse also works well)
  • You may either use 3:10 later, or at first for the first combination. But do use a combination of combos and unloads for it.
  • Feel free to switch the sequence of damage based moves, like using Power before 88 mph, or Power before Final, etc. But it is better not to do so with special-effect attacks like Flash and Boost.
  • The boost skill is not compulsory to use, but it does increase the damage dealt.

    Very tough opponents: 88 mph/3:10 -> 3:10/88 mph -> Boost -> Pulse -> Final -> Power -> Flash -> Power -> Combo -> Unload -> 3:10 -> Flash -> Power -> Combo -> Unload -> Power
  • Repeat this process (without 88 mph, of course) to significantly bring down your opponent's HP. Then use 88 mph, when it unlocks, and preferably before you use 3:10, or after the 3:10 effects are over.
  • Using a Break instead of a combo, and then combo instead of unload (and of course, unload next, and so on) wouldn't hurt, because you anyway have another turn for right side skills after Flash. As mentioned before, it is just a filler move, and 20% decrease in powerboost is hardly anything. Besides, you have the flash which blinds your opponent after the stun anyways. Does do a lot of damage though.
  • You can either use the set of first 2-9 attacks mentioned above later, or at the beginning of the fight, as long as the cooldown is over. (You can add in a 88 mph in one of the combinations after the cooldown is over for it too). You can do the last 6 move combinations any time once you have used 3:10.
  • It's good to constantly use 3:10 once the effect wears out, as it makes it easy to hammer away at the opponent's HP
  • You may want to try using a Boost for the last 6 moves combination (after using 3:10, of course), and add a 88 mph if you can
  • Remember to use Accel when needed!
  • It also wouldn't hurt to switch a few skills, like using 3:10 first, and 88 mph a little later, etc.

    Very Low HP/MP: Boost -> Accel -> 88 mph -> Combo -> Unload -> (use a combination of a few skills, you could repeat the previous sequence too) -> 3:10 -> Stun -> Power -> Final -> Flash
  • You will need a bit of luck for this combo. This is in case you don't have right skills unlocked already. You will need the attack of the opponent to miss after using Boost
  • If Pulse does not work, Use Flash immediately. Then continue using the other right side skills as normal
  • Try keeping your mana consuming low, or you'll run out of mana when you need it.
  • Only use 3:10 when you feel you have enough mana to handle the right side skills (which should be after usng a second boost) , and HP to be able to take your opponents attacks without losing a lot of it significantly (which should be after completing the first 3-turn heal cycle)
  • Use Boost, then Accel whenever the cooldown ends, as those are very important moves is situations like this

    2 or 3 Easy/Medium Monsters: Spray -> 88 mph -> Spray -> Combo -> Unload -> Spray
  • Here, you must decide who you want to use the skills on yourself (excluding multi strike moves)
  • For this, you can mostly use the skills in any order you want, because it doesn't really matter

    2 or 3 Hard Monsters: Spray -> 88 mph/3:10 -> 3:10/88 mph -> Flash -> Pulse -> Final -> Rain -> Rain -> Spray -> Combo -> Unload
    ..........................Or: 3:10 -> Rain (x5) -> Spray -> 88 mph -> Spray
  • Since the enemies' attack damage stack and hurt you more, you may want to Heal up using a potion, or the Accel skill when you need it
  • Skill orders don't really matter here that much here either, but you will find it useful to keep spamming the rain skill when you can.
