Zenonia 4 Slayer Guide: Stat and Skill Builds

The Slayer

As the most straightforward character in Zenonia 4, the Slayer is usually (along with the Slayer-like choices in the previous games) labeled as a “beginner” class. While this is slightly true, using the Slayer definitely doesn’t immediately turn Zenonia 4 into “easy-mode” (unless you decide to use G-Points to overpower yourself). You do die a lot less than the other characters though, as well as retain way more money. Strong 1v1 attacks, as well as some awesome AOE’s make the Slayer... well, good at slaying things.

Stat Build

Pure STR – This build is surprisingly fragile, especially to bosses. Pumping all your points into STR ensures maximum damage, but leaves you without a lot of HP. With this build, you probably want to skip out on the offensive passive skills and buffs until the later levels, as you won’t need them.

Hybrid – This build consists of adding 2 CON every 3 levels, or if you’re having any trouble with mobs/bosses, adding 1 CON per level. A great mix of damage and defense; this is probably one of the easier builds of any class in Zenonia 4 to play, but it’s still a lot of fun.

Skill Build

This is a skill build up to level 40ish for the Slayer. It’s geared towards the hybrid build, but can basically be applied to all of them. If you’re a pure STR, go for defensive/evasive passive skills first, and if you’re a tank, you can skip out on “Defense Skill” and other passive skills of that kind.

LvI 2 – Armor Break (1)
LvI 3 – Potion Plus (1)
LvI 4 – Potion Plus (2)
LvI 5 – Concentration (1)
LvI 6 – Concentration (2)
LvI 7 – Concentration (3)
LvI 8 – Concentration (4)
LvI 9 – Concentration (5)
LvI 10 – Sword Skill (1)
LvI 11 – Sword Skill (2)
LvI 12 – Sword Skill (3)
LvI 13 – Sword Skill (4)
LvI 14 – Sword Skill (5)
LvI 15 – Sword Skill (6)
LvI 16 – Sword Skill (7)
LvI 17 – Sword Skill (8)
LvI 18 – Sword Skill (9)
LvI 19 – Sword Skill (MAX)
LvI 20 – Earth Break (1)
LvI 21 – Explosiveness (1)
LvI 22 – Explosiveness (2)
LvI 23 – Explosiveness (3)
LvI 24 – Strengthening (1)
LvI 25 – Whirlwind (1)
LvI 26 – Explosiveness (4)
LvI 27 – Explosiveness (5)
LvI 28 – Explosiveness (6)
LvI 29 – Sacrifice (1)
LvI 30 – Power Link (1)
LvI 31 – Power Link (2)
LvI 32 – Power Link (3)
LvI 33 – Power Link (4)
LvI 34 – Power Link (5)
LvI 35 – Power Link (6)
LvI 36 – Power Link (7)
LvI 37 – Power Link (8)
LvI 38 – Power Link (9)
LvI 39 – Power Link (MAX)
LvI 40 – Defense Skill (1)
LvI 41 – Dragon Aura (1)
LvI 42 – Dragon Aura (2)

At this point, you should have a pretty good idea of where to add the rest of your skill points. Basically just max out all the passive abilities, sans Furious Speed (I don’t like this skill because I usually like to group up enemies, and moving too quickly loses aggro on a lot of mobs). Your main attacks are Armor Break, Earth Break, and Whirlwind – they’re much more effective than the other active skills. Sword Wave is too one-dimensional and Battle Howl does the opposite of what you want. Blackhole Sting can be useful, but lacks the pull-power that you’d ideally want out of it until investing a lot of skill points. Avatar is really only useful for the HP up 50%, to tank a boss or to run away from a sticky situation.


  • Just a small tip: Armor Break is a skill that you’ll be using a lot in the beginning of the game. It hits twice, each hit knocking the enemy back a bit. Try to pin your enemy against a wall so both hits land, or your second one may miss. If you can’t do that, then run up as close as you can.
  • Pick your Fairy’s rune and skills according to your Slayer’s build. If you’re a pure STR or hybrid, odds are you’re lacking a bit of defense. Get skills that compensate for stats like HP and CON.
  • If you’re finding your Slayer a bit too easy, mix it up by adding some DEX. You’ll get more avoid and critical rating without having too much attack/defense.

Pure STR if you don't mind a bit of a challenge, Hybrid if you don't want to die a lot

Pure str it is. I want to die a lot lol. Thanks for the guide!

What a good skill for slayer in pvp ?

ttocs profile image

ttocs 4 years ago Author

@mosh - if you don't want to die a lot definitely pick slayer.

@Nam - gear matters a lot more than stats for PVP. A pure str would be able to kill their enemy quickly, but die quickly as well, as opposed to the tank which could take some damage.

My bad, I edited it. Just add a point into sacrifice and then add into Power Link.

So does this game not end? I just beat shaturu or what ever his name is but the game just restarted in hard mode. What's up with this?

I don't like the format either - you have to beat the game again in hard mode to get the "real" ending

Hi ttocs, do you recommend using avatar skill?? And if I want to focus on that skill do I boost int?? Thanks

ttocs profile image

ttocs 4 years ago Author

I personally don't use avatar, but you can try it out (save before you add the skill point, and if you don't like it, restart Zenonia). Nope, you still focus on STR/CON

Ccrivera86 4 years ago

Thanks Ttocs, I guess I'll just have to keep on playing. At least we get to keep all stats and gears.

It saves TONS of money no matter which build you use. If you want to be OPTIMAL, you could skip the skill, but I don't recommend it.

Is 2 INT and 1 DEX per 2 levels and rest to CON a good build?

ttocs profile image

ttocs 4 years ago Author

dougy- if it's working out for you, keep going. Dex and Int aren't great for slayers though, look at the stat builds for more info on that.

SF- Eh I hesitate adding too much into INT for a slayer. Dex is alright though, for some crit, but I prefer just sticking with con and str

hi, great guide, but I thought strengthening was a good skill? It seems that you could up the attack like a boss with it, so wouldn't it be good to invest more points in it? And anyway, if I replace it with something else, what would you recommending replacing?

Tuft64 4 years ago

Hey ttocs, think you could post guides for Zenonia 3: The Midgard Story? I've managed to get to lvl 21 with my shadow assassin, due to overuse of passives, but I'm having a lot of trouble fighting bosses, and have already used both Origins you start with, and I don't like using IAPs.

Loso 4 years ago

Hey ttocs, my slayer's build is pure str. Do you still recommend on learning power link to level10?

Tuft64 4 years ago

I wouldn't recommend it, because a pure STR build is really strong ATK wise on its own, and that's a total waste of ten skill pints if you do. Maybe invest in something that adds CON or DEF. both would be good.

Loso 4 years ago

Thanks tuft64!

Tuft64 4 years ago

Glad I could be of help. Also, you may want to invest in Potions+, because it'll save a STR slayer a lot of health, since they don't have very high max hp, plus it saves you a ton of money. It's a skill basically any slayer should have, and for you who don't know what passives to invest in past 42, I would suggest Potion+, because ttocs' guide only has it at lvl 1, and it's a WAAAAAYY better skill than that. Also, try to max out your actives and buffs if you're a CON slayer, because a CON slayer needs all the extra attack that he or she can get

@lagg here's what you need to do.on the menu, go to inventory. tap the item you want to dispose or throw away and it should show 4 options. one of those options is to drop the item. but if you're just in town, i recommend selling that item you wanted to dispose. this'll help especially on the early stages of game.

ZenMaster 4 years ago

Quick tip for people finding the start difficult with fragile characters:

You can destroy the crates in the town you start in to get health and mana potins (s) and then if you go to the forest and straight back to town without completing the quest the crates are back so its an easier start to the game :)

Dude I'm pure CON and all I do is miss..... And die quickly AND do low damage... And I followed the guide.

Finn 4 years ago

Would this be a decent idea? What If I followed a pure STR build but got avatar? Would I not give me 50% more HP and I could still have the massive ATK stat of a pure STR Slayer. So would this be a valid build?

Teddyboy 4 years ago

@Wtfdude : u can make a sheath stone and use it. it give u a bonus status such as +Dex , +Str , + Con. It is very helpful for your character.

@Finn : Avatar have a time limit so u gain 50% more HP for a few sec. but it u want to build pure STR Slayer. U can do it and U can use a sheath stone for your extra Con status.

Jabberwock 4 years ago

pure con or hybrid? and what skills do you recommend for pure con?

Slayer 4 years ago

Great guide helped me a lot. Tank build helps get so much money fast. To those saying they die to quickly with "tank" slayer, did you expect to be able to just stand there and take on damage from boss's with no challenge at all. Try moving away from the attacks. If you still think tank build dosnt work play a druid and you will see the difference.

AzViktor 4 years ago

Enigma -zen points pumped into their stats "usually" brought with real money Goruko- usually gear dependant so personally don't worry about it i mean u don't have to follow giudes exactly experimentings more fun imo however this giude is a good start. Jacky- depends on the charged attack? Some say they do 300% dmg etc otherwise not a clue. . Imo reasonable gear comes from winning in pvp the weapons n such seem so much better Than the stuff u can made noting this is only at the beginning not sure on higher lvl gears but my blader n driud got better around lvl 45 with gear won in pvp (won gear was lvl 45) Finally gona start a slayer!!
