Godless 32 Posted March 5 Share Posted March 5 (edited) BLADE DANCER Blade dancer what is it? Its a dual wielding melee class with good survivability and high damage a great class for casual and more hardcore players. Great for pvp and pve content! Now you may be asking what is it that makes blade dancer so good for casual and hardcore players? Its versatility and easy to understand mechanics, most of the population in warspear consider blade dancer to be a simple "click mindlessly" class while it can also be that it has small nuances that makes the difference between good blade dancers and casual blade dancers. Leveling Spoiler Your starting island will be the easiest and fastest one in warspear, Melvendil - Isle of firstborn. Spoiler Leveling blade dancer is harder than most people think because blade dancers only unlock their potential in the late game at level 28-32, while you might need some help for the first island the irselnort and ayvondil quests you will find easy after unlocking certain expert skills like "mark of the blade" and "magic transformation". These expert skills provide excelent support and tankyness for solo questing thrue irselnort and ayvondil. Buffs for leveling These items and buffs will make your leveling up much quicker and easier -Great Elixir of Experience (acquired from event/battlepass chests) -Great Experience (battlepass buff) -Guild Experience (this buff is opened at guild level 1) -White Rat (this is a miracle coin minion that's relatively expensive but it will make leveling up much faster I recommend buying this after reaching irselnort) Spoiler Gears for leveling In my opinion the most important part of any pve related content is your characters gears and your build. So let's start with what you should get and what you should avoid. Axes Great for leveling due to high base dmg and later on extra buff from power of blades skill. After reaching max level these aren't as good when leveling up, due to axes slow attack speed. Swords Blade dancers natural weapon of choice also great for leveling but i do recommend them only after reaching level 24. These are also arguably the best weapons for current blade dancer. Daggers Fastest hitting weapon in the game but not the best for leveling up your character due to very low base dmg. Later on these are the best weapons for dps build. Remember you can mix and match these as you go along and get stronger but for leveling up i recommend axes. Armors There is two ways you can build your blade dancer but for leveling purposes i recommend going with whatever you can get your hands on really. Just focus on getting these stats as much as you can. There is not a one single do it all armor set for leveling up so I will instead list some things to look for in your armors Important stats for leveling -Hp -Both Magic and Physical defences -Critical hit% (this one should be as high as possible) -Accuracy% (after unlocking experts and skill ”strike hurricane” you dont need to focus this stat as much) -Damage (if possible i suggest amping yourself +6/+8 weapons for lvl 22/24 those will carry you until lvl 30-32) What you should try to avoid while leveling up -Armors with only defensive stats -Amping low level armors above +6 -Investing too much on armors and weapons Skills to focus on when leveling - Flash strike this should be your first 5/5 skill due to its high dmg Spoiler - Sap this should be your second 5/5 skill it helps you clear bosses and dungeons safer Spoiler - Vortex Blade this should be left 3/5 until you have leveled up to 18 and you can unlock second skill build slot and expert skill "power of blades". With vortex blade you can do combo attack when you apply "bleed" on enemy vortex blade deals more damage Spoiler basic vortex blade vortex blade with bleed applied Expert skills What to buy and what to leave for later? You can buy these either with miracle coins (499) or with gold (40000)from irselnort town 1 or ayvondil town 1 library Spoiler -Mark of the blade For leveling purposes this should be the first choice. It's a healing skill based on your hp amount, that after being triggered heals you for every instant dmg you deal (auto attacks, flash strike, vortex blade) this is very helpful for dealing with bosses. When leveling up I recommend this skill being 4/4 Spoiler -Power of the blades (now titled as ”Blades power”) This should be your second choice it will increase your damage output. I always recommend this skill being 4/4 Spoiler -Magic transformation Shield that surrounds blade dancer and protects him from any damage for certain amount of hitpoints. Great for leveling purposes I recommend this skill to be leveled up after "mark of the blade" and "power of the blades" Spoiler -Strike hurricane Increases your attack speed and accuracy this is vital skill for fast leveling up and for pve build this should always be 4/4 Spoiler -Enlightenment This is also one of the most important skills for pve and leveling up it increases your penetration and cooldown speed Spoiler -Spirit of resistance Grants blade dancer resist stacks to avoid control skills amount of stacks depend on level of the skill. (more pvp related skill almost irrelevant for leveling up) Spoiler -Rush Allows blade dancer to move quickly for 5 yards and stun your opponent granting 100% resist same time while in rush motion. (Same as "spirit of resistance" more of a pvp related skill not needed for leveling up) Spoiler -Counter attack one of the worst skills for pvp/pve gameplay on blade dancer it reflects your opponent with % of your damage with very limited range and dmg output (not recommended to level) Spoiler -Sonic boom Recently modified skill for blade dancer which used to be aoe instant damage skill now changed to aoe bleed skill. This is good for leveling up too you will need that extra dmg and it pairs well with vortex not necessary to increase the skill level Spoiler My suggestion for pve build at level 32 Basic skills 5/5 flash, 5/5 vortex, 3/5 hamstring, 4/4 strike hurricane, 4/4 enlightenment, 4/4 power of the blades after unlocking skill points from talents I recommend putting points to either "mark of the blade" or "sonic boom" Things to focus on when leveling -Getting you knowledge up and trying to reach skillpoints and class specific talents like ”Masterful parry” which gives you a chance to decrease your damage taken by 10% based on your parry% . After skillpoints you should focus on your keytalents and grinding knowledge for them. They are a BIG gamechanger for pve and pvp related content for blade dancer. Key talents for blade dancer Spoiler Sweeping blow My personal favourite for pve related content and dungeon clearing. This talent gives blade dancer the ability to do ”aoe” dmg with auto attacks while ”Blades power” Skill is active Spoiler Bastion of Ancestors This is more of a pvp talent and very good one at that my personal recommendation for pvp/arena related content Spoiler Unrestrained Onslaught This talent is in my opinion the worst one from the keytalents and has only really one place for it. Some might say thats the more important aspect of Warspear. Large scale wars. This talent paired with masterful parry is a VERY good combo for large scale battles where you need that extra tanking ability Spoiler PvE A class best known for its pvp ability is surprisingly also good for pve. In sentinels I would say this is the class to go for after ranger and seeker in terms of pve gameplay. For blade dancers by far the best class to be paired with is PRIEST for their dmg buff and critical dmg buff this helps clearing dungeons and bosses faster. Enchantments for armors and accessories (my recommendation) -Crystal of dexterity for boots, armor and gloves -Crystal of deadliness for amulet and cloak (depending on your mana regeneration, can be put on belt too) -Crystal of harmony for rings and belt -Crystal of accuracy for helm -Any of the designated dmg crystals for your weapon of choice -Rune of defence for armor, gloves, helm and boots -Rune of vampirism for all accessories -Rune of solidity for belt I recommend worrying about these only at higher levels 18 and up.(recommended to use the miracle coin ones since they have guaranteed enchantment chance) PvE armors and skill builds Dps skillbuild 5/5 flash strike, 5/5 vortex blade, 3/5 hamstring, 4/4 strike hurricane, 4/4 enlightenment, 4/4 power of the blades, 3/4 sonic boom Tanking skillbuild 3/5 flash strike, 5/5 vortex blade, 5/5 sap, 4/4 mark of the blade, 4/4 power of the blades, 4/4 rush, 3/4 magic transformation PvE relics Flash strike Spoiler Vortex blade Spoiler Parry Spoiler Sap Spoiler Hamstring Spoiler PvE armors There is 2 sets of armor I would recommend for pve dps build (these sets are VERY much endgame stuff) - Full set of Guards of the sea turtle light armor set, Icy gurt of the northern lord + spring accessories (hp rings, speed amulet, energy regeneration cloak) Spoiler - Light mermen armor 2 pieces (armor and gloves) + craft boots and helm + Icy gurt of the northern lord + spring accessories (hp rings, speed amulet, energy regeneration cloak) Spoiler Then there is also pve sets for tanking which focus less on gathering speed and more on cd and other stats - Heavy eternity (life steal set) helmet and gloves + heavy craft armor and light craft boots + Icy girdle of the northern lord + horror accessories (hp rings, amulet, energy regeneration cloak) (benefit of this set is massive amount of life steal and good defence while having very good critical hit chance) Spoiler - Heavy mermen doom set helm and gloves + omnipotent titan set armor and boots + Icy gurt of the northern lord + spring accessories paired with energy regeneration rage cloak This set makes use of heavy mms hp boosting and dmg reducing abilities while keeping critical chance and dmg output high for this set Spoiler PvP Blade dancer with correct skill build and gears is probably the most terrifying thing you can come up against. HIGH single target damage paired with immunity for stun via "spirit of resistance" and "rush". PvP combinations Every combo requires intuition from player to recognize what to use in every situation and making a mistake will lead to you losing but I will list some combinations for PvP that will help you get the idea what to go for and when Generally in PvP setting where you will face melee characters you should focus on debuffing them, vs ranged classes most important thing is to get close and stun them Combo vs melees (what I recommend) Enlightenment->Spirit of resistance->Magic transformation->Sap->Hamstring->Mark of the blade->Flash strike->Rush->Vortex blade Spoiler ->->->->->->->-> Combo vs ranged (what I recommend) Mark of the blade->Spirit of resistance->Enlightenment->Rush->Flash strike->Hamstring->Vortex blade->Sap->Sonic boom Spoiler ->->->->->->->-> PvP basics for starting players Things to focus on when making your skillbuild -What are you fighting -Where are you fighting -What classes are you up against is it ranged or melee, healer or damage dealer -Is it arena, gvg or raid battles Every single one of these things I mentioned will help you determine your needed skillbuild for the task PvP skillbuilds There are 3 different builds every blade dancer should do fine with in PvP, arena and GvG GvG/Massfight skillbuild Basic skills 5/5 parry 5/5 vortex blade 3/5 flash strike Expert skills 4/4 power of the blades 4/4 spirit of resistance 4/4 sonic boom, 3/4
