Blader: The deadly blade dancer, the fastest dual sword user

“Bladers” are the ones who mastered the “second form of force” that were inherited since Nevareth Exodus. According to the Sage Tower, blader skills originated from a type of martial art that was practiced in an eastern country of the Lost Age. That martial art was discovered and developed during the Honorable Age. With the leadership of the first generation of the 7 sages, the present form of blader skills was established.

Their practice is focused on maximizing physical abilities by using force, and they prioritize striking techniques and fast speed over destructive power. At the beginning, they used various kinds of weapons, but they quickly realized that the best armaments for their skills are dual swords and have settled with them. Since then, they use single- or double-bladed dual swords as their primary weapons and wear light armor such as “Martial Suit Set” from the Huan continent for speed.
Just like the warriors, bladers have very limited understanding in force, thus they mainly practice physical strength and agility more than studying the knowledge of force (intelligence). Well-experienced bladers are said to be able to create multiple doppelgangers by maximizing their agility, and to bring instant death to their enemies by summoning deadly Astral Weapons which are the results of their spiritual awakening in force.

When you are now in master you have +3 more skill slots, so you can get more skills.

A. Master

* Blade Cry - Create a shock wave by spinning a sword with might.

Get blade cry [10 - 20] it has the most damage in one blow.


Its better to get Blade cry in level 10 or 12 (i forgot) because the higher the level it goes it will have a higher cool down.

Get this because this it the BEST skill ever!!!


Same as blade cry the higher the level the higher the cool down.

Vitality mastery is a must! Get it in every skill upgrade. Don’t get mana.

Get reflex first and then sharp eyes if you have a free skill slot. Upgrade both.


* Offensive sense - Increase one’s attack strength by practicing the sense of attack.
* Defensive sense - Increase one’s defense by practicing the sense of defense.
* Force control - Increase magic attack strength by practicing force management.
