Riders of Icarus 2nd Dungeon
Before you begin the fight, target yourself then cast:
Cohesion Veil > Ellora's Marks > Cohesion Veil > Ellora's Marks > Cohesion Veil > Ellora's Marks.
Basically: cast Ellora's Marks on yourself three times. When cast upon yourself or an ally, Ellora's Marks provides +5% Magic Critical Hit Rate, +5% Physical Defense, +5% Movement Speed and +3% Physical & Magical Attack Damage. Those bonuses can stack up to 3 times (i.e. +15% Crit, Defense and Movement; and +9% Damage), and last 10 minutes. Needless to say: YOU ALWAYS WANT TO HAVE THIS BUFF ON YOURSELF!
Now cast Cohesion Veil one more time to activate your Holy Symbol passive skill, which provides another +5% Movement Speed and +5% Physical Defense for each mote (glowing ball of light) you have, up to a maximum of 3. So: if you have three Ellora's Marks on yourself and have three motes summoned -- you've got a massive +30% physical defense bonus.
Now... it time to lay some Holy smack down.
Charge in and cast Righteous Authority and Divine Power on the boss. These will cause damage every few seconds for 30 seconds. You can cast these same skills on yourself (or allies, if you're in a group) to cause healing every few seconds for 30 seconds. I can't remember if Priests have Lightstream yet at your level, but if you do -- cast that on the boss as well, as that is yet another damage-over-time spell.
Now the boss should be losing health at a pretty good rate, and all you need to do is run away from him and attack with your wand, throwing in a few hits with Heaven's Hammer and Holy Punishment as you're able. About every 25 seconds, recast Righteous Authority and Divine Power again (and Lightstream, if you have it) to keep the damage-over-time going.
By the way: the Priest's basic auto-attack with her wand actually does a surprising amount of damage. Especially considering you can auto-attack while running, and it doesn't cost any mana. In a hit-and-run situation, it's not a bad move.
If you get low on health, target yourself and cast a few Ellora's Marks on yourself. Then be sure to cast Heaven's Hammer or Holy Punishment a few times to re-summon your motes. Always try to keep three motes summoned -- as previously mentioned, your Holy Symbol passive skill gives a movement speed and physical defense bonus for each mote you have. Also, you need to have one or more motes in order to cast Ellora's Marks (and Lightstream requires two).
In Story Mode, the fight should not be very difficult -- especially if you follow these tips. If you're having trouble, it probably means you're not upgrading your gear. Make sure you do ALL the side quests along the way, because those give you new gear. Also, you should be tempering each piece of your gear to around +5 to +7 (if you're running low on tempering stones, at least temper your weapon, crest and chest piece). Never sell blue (Elite) gear -- buy Extractors from merchants and break that gear down into tempering stones so that you have a good supply.
Pets don't make a huge difference at this point, but boars, bears and turtles are good low-level choices for their physical defense bonus, or a wolf for its health bonus. You can find boars, bears, turtles and wolves pretty much all over the place. At your level, you don't have to be using an elite pet -- common ones will be just fine for now, unless you happen to have an Elite Pet Scroll. The Elite scrolls can be pretty expensive for a new character -- but you can buy Common Pet Scrolls from most merchants back in the capital city for only a few silver.

Riders of Icarus Frost Keep Heroic - Assassin-Solo
Use the shorter side dodges if you're trying to avoid pulling additional packs and stay within range of the group and the long forward dodge with chain pull or dagger rush to close the gap again when you're solo and/or got room to breathe
The thing about using a dps meter
People are getting more and more toxic as people buy Riders of Icarus gold/profit from those who do buy Icarus gold.
RIDERS OF ICARUS RANGER’S FURY UPDATE RAISES LEVEL CAP TO 50
Nexon and WeMade announced that Riders of Icarus has recently been updated with the new Ranger’s Fury expansion, featuring an all new Ranger class character to play along with new environments to explore and a new extension on the level cap.
Max Level Speculation
To all players: leveling from 25 to 40 is actually faster than leveling from 1 to 25. Leveling from 25 to 50 is only a few hours longer than leveling from 1 to 25.
