Force Master Comprehensive Guide in Blade & Soul

U4GM Date: Jun/01/18 11:02:59 Views: 274

What make the Force Master differ from other classes is its ability to attack from a long range, enabling them to deal heavy damage from afar. They become a dynamic addition to any battle with their swift strikes and ability to move around while on the offense. Careful positioning is key to their survival since they have less endurance than the other classes.

 

The Force Master is able to freely switch between elements; their searing Fire abilities stack damage with repeated attacks, while the freezing Ice powers control the battlefield and enhance their defenses. With careful focus they can even snatch an enemy and hold them suspended in the air, leaving that foe helpless against incoming attacks.

 

Other classes can't compete with the Force Master's ability to handle groups of enemies, but PvP arenas prove more challenging than ever. Only a truly skilled Force Master can overcome the direct attention of a fellow warrior. Many Force Master fans may know, Eternal Night is now live!

Force Master in Play

1) Focus on what:

The Force Master focuses on dealing either Fire or Ice damage, but not all abilities are flame- or cold-based, as Force Masters can break through an opponent's defenses to pull them in with Phantom Grip, holding them choking and dangling in the air, before draining their health, blasting them with unleashed energy, or even knocking them far away.

Abilities that do fall into Fire or Ice will have their damage increased with selection of the right items; so building a focus around these damage types is advantageous in the long run, especially as you get to the end-game dungeons.

Fire Mode Stance is the primary damage dealing stance, containing powerful abilities. Fire skills stack Embers on the target, and at 5 Embers allow the Force Master to detonate them to cause additional damage, and apply the Burn debuff. When enemies are burning, fire abilities deal additional damage.

Frost Mode Stance contains crowd control and defensive skills, as well as abilities that regain Focus; Frost skills also increase the Force Master's character defenses. Repeated use of Frost abilities on an enemy will cause them to get the Chill debuff, which restricts movement speed. Enough Chill, and Force Masters can Freeze the enemy in place, even going so far as keeping the enemy entirely out of combat under a Deep Freeze.

2) In a party:

For party play, the Force Master's area-of-effect abilities help quickly eliminate enemies, while stacking their Burn debuff on bosses helps whittle down their health effectively. Switching over to Frost Mode Stance can isolate and impair the movement of smaller creatures the boss may call up; and if threat has been pulled away from another team member, Force Masters can instantly turn themselves to ice, becoming invulnerable and untargetable—before thawing to unleash their power again.

3) In Arena PvP:

In Arena PvP, the weaknesses of the Force Master become more prominent; the limited number of escape abilities, along with the long cooldowns associated with those skills, makes playing a Force Master much more complex than simply choosing when to cast Fire or Ice abilities. Prioritizing instant-cast abilities, fast casting speed, and skills that pierce defenses over high-damaging abilities can all help to ensure the Force Master can hold their own competitively against the other classes.
