Blade Master Comprehensive Guide in Blade & Soul

Blade and Soul Date: May/28/18 14:54:04 Views: 4976

The Blade Master is a well-rounded class that is easy to use but difficult to master. Blade Masters have a wide variety of attack and defense skills, making them a powerful force on the battlefield. Their techniques rely on high attack speed and careful maneuvering around an enemy, dodging and parrying without pause, while countering any attacks with devastating ease.

 

In battle, the Blade Master is able to swiftly switch between stances, allowing for many combinations of attacks in either their Basic Stance or their blindingly-fast Draw Stance, calling on a unique set of skills only available in those stances. With the Flock of Blades technique, they can summon a flurry of flying swords to overwhelm their enemies. Many Blade Master fans may know, Eternal Night is now live!

Blade Master in Play

1) Focus on what:

The Blade Master focuses on dealing two types of damage: Fire and Lightning. Not all skills will have an associated elemental damage, but those that do will have their damage increased with the selection of the right items. Building a focus around these damage types is advantageous in the long run, especially as you get to the end-game dungeons.

2) In a party:

While in a party the Blade Master versatility becomes equally advantageous. Typically the Blade Master takes on the role of keeping the boss occupied while the other party members fulfill other tasks. The Blade Master captures the boss' attention by initiating the battle with a set of high damage combos, then switching to a more defensive set of skills that can maintain threat.

3) In Arena PvP:

In Arena PvP, delicately balancing the stance switches is vital. Draw Stance and its associated abilities ensure your damage is high; but if you can't effectively react and block your opponents skills, it doesn't matter how high your damage potential is if you're constantly movement-locked or condition-afflicted.
