The nimble Deathblade cuts through her foes with ease, using both dual-blades and a longsword as her weapons of choice. This highly mobile assassin excels at using charge skills in rapid succession to deliver heavy hitting blows to her enemies. Deathblade comes in two playstyles, Surge Zero and Remaining Energy.


Remaining Energy: Accessories, Card Sets, Engravings and Gearsets

Remaining Energy Icon Remaining Energy is heavily reliant on Specialization as it affects numerous aspects of the class. Your Surge & Death Orb meter generation are affected by this stat, as well as the cooldown reduction when activating Death Trance. Given you'll be using Earth's Entropy, you'll have additional Critical Rate & Damage as well. Crit is taken, albeit only on the necklace. You won't have a wide breadth of engravings to choose from but still have a few choices that you can make.


Card Sets

Card sets are shared across both engravings for Deathblade. In the early game you can use cards that help with survivability such as Field Boss II Icon Field Boss II, We'll Meet Again Icon We'll Meet Again and Forest of Giants Icon Forest of Giants. For optimal damage you'll want Light of Salvation Icon Light of Salvation at 18 or 30 awakening, though is quite a late game goal. Lostwind Cliff Icon Lostwind Cliff provides additional Critical Rate and is a solid stand-in as you gradually work towards Light of Salvation Icon Light of Salvation.



There aren't plenty of options to choose from, Remaining Energy Icon Remaining Energy's engravings are straightforward.

Engraving Priority Description
Remaining Energy Icon Remaining Energy Necessity Depending on budget or your character's progression, you can take this at either Level 1 or 3.
Grudge Icon Grudge Very High This is a staple damage engraving. As a DPS you should be using this as an immediate slot-in for your setup.
Adrenaline Icon Adrenaline High Due to <b>Earth's Entropy</b> providing a lot of Critical Damage, the extra Critical Rate & Attack power from this is great value.
Super Charge Icon Super Charge High With three charge skills serving over 50% of your DPS, this is highly recommended to take. Increased speed and damage allows for a smoother rotation.
Master of Ambush Icon Master of Ambush High As a Back Attacker, this is emphasizes the importance of landing your positionals.
Cursed Doll Icon Cursed Doll Optional Can be taken over Adrenaline Icon Adrenaline in 5x3 scenarios. Diminishing returns when used with Adrenaline Icon Adrenaline.
Keen Blunt Weapon Icon Keen Blunt Weapon Optional Should only be taken with Adrenaline Icon Adrenaline, offers a little bit less damage than Cursed Doll Icon Cursed Doll.


Starting in Legendary gear, you'll want the Preordained Diligence set from Argos to give you additional Critical Rate. You can use the 2-piece gear from Valtan Normal but it's only recommended if you intend on parking your character at 1415. Once you obtain Relic gear, you'll be using the Earth's Entropy set. Providing Critical Rate & Damage along with increased Back Attack damage. Back Attacks being a core aspect of your routine gameplay, this set only enhances your damage in all ways possible.
