How To Play Faust: Introduction
Figuring out what you have might not be quite as hard as you think: we simply take items that are already in your guilty gear, in the inventory of a player that isn’t currently in your party, like for example Faust from Cairn to Faust from Bower to Faust in Howlscar. Or even your training sword and your training sword from lance to lance. But here you do not just take the items that were in your guilty gear but also the monsters you kill from guilty gear. All of that stuff is already in your inventory but you can only have it from your guilty gear. I haven’t played all the quests yet so if this is an issue, suffer
Faust is a zoner, this means that he plays differently to other characters. He may stand in one place, move, or use items depending on the situation. So we can change the animations and effects of a character using macros.
To install macros and customize skills go to the setup folder and create a new folder with the name of the character that you want to use it for. After the character is set up to use that particular item you can then apply that item with a simple text editor. For example, to change the skill cooldown for Faust you would create the following macro (further down we’ll show you how to use a step delay, a step speed, and how to change the animation) and adjust the size, speed, duration, and any items the skill can be attached to as well as create effects to your own. The key here is to experiment and create your own combinations.
Note that you can’t change any keys with Faust using standard editing methods. To modify keys you would use the ‘Modify Key’ modifier.
Faust likes to stand in the enemy’s face, give him a good sword stroke and watch the horror spill out as he strikes the heart.
Faust by force gives a false sense of confidence to the opponent and gives an urge to charge at them, but he may just strike them on the head instead.
Again, the key here is to experiment and try different combinations to make the character as unique as you can.

After all the information about Faust is explained, here’s a video for players who aren’t familiar with Faust and to teach them all about how to use him!
Fausts Supers. (what To Know)
An explanation of Faust's supers can be summarized as such:
His half meter super 1:
this super does not require any lengthy explanation; it comes down to a misconception of what Faust has done; Faust has acquired super 1, otherwise known as Faust's super 1.
His super is technically 1 meter wide.
Of Faust's super 2:
this super does not require any lengthy explanation, but it does provide some insight to why he has acquired super 2
Six of Faust's super 3:
this super does require a lengthy explanation, but it is also entertaining to see what Faust can do. You see, I can perform super 3, and this can be seen by anyone that chooses to take a look at it. This supers has eight inscriptions, the first four are visible, and the last four are secret.
Nineteen of Faust's super 4:
this super does require a lengthy explanation, but I would suggest that it not be undertaken to see exactly what Faust can do with super 4.
Seven of Faust's super 5:
this supers has some funny features that will not help Faust's reputation; I would not recommend that you partake in super 5
Twenty-one of Faust's super 5:
this supers has some funny features that will not help Faust's reputation; I would not recommend that you partake in twenty one of Faust's super 5 as it will make your eyes bleed and your lungs explode.
Faust's super 6:
this super is special because no one else has it .
Faust's super 7:
this supers is special because it is made from some weird non-compliant metal; do not try this at home
Faust's super 8:
this super is special because it looks like something you would find in the paint cans in a garage; do not try this at home
Faust's super 9:
this super is special because it is gold; do not try this at home
The tenth of Faust's super 10:
this supers is special because it looks like one of those inventions from an old science fiction movie that make the bollywood people rich; do not try this at home.
Final Thoughts On Faust
Faust is a unique character which some valuable skills and supers. my final thoughts on him for new players are:
– Faust is a good character to build upon, but he is complicated.
– Instead of starting at point 30, start at point 5, and then try to build up your skills.
– If you start from point 30, you can learn all of your skills with 5 people or 2 people – when you get a full team, you can build a really strong team and even have many skilled players.
– Faust requires a lot of setup, and after a few minutes, you can use your super to kill people and carry the super bag and your soul shield.
– Faust is not a character for beginners, the learning curve is too high. but you are welcome to try.
– Faust does not get some new-player friendly skills. New-players can learn the basics, but not everything that Faust can do.
– Faust has a limited number of skills, so you must prioritize a few to survive a fight.
