What is a Dual Blader?



Translated from Korean -> English
KMSsite:
The previous Dark Lord had a student named Jin and a daughter, Sulhee.
Basically what happened was that the friend of the previous Dark Lord, Tristan, requested help to kill Balrog.

Unfortunately, Dark Lord got turned into a monster by Balrog and his student Jin had to kill Dark Lord because he was attacking Kerning City.
The daughter of the previous Dark Lord, Sulhee, saw the dead body of her father brought by Jin.

She thought that Jin framed him and killed him because of his position. (Although, she loved Jin, but she is stupid and thinks that way)
So Jin became the next Dark Lord and Sulhee created a secret dark organization to go against Jin.

Now the rogues are disappearing from Kerning City by Sulhee’s command to recruit them to Dual Blade to fight against Jin.

A Dual Blader is like a thief, more like a bandit than a Sin. A Dual Blader uses a Dagger and a Blade. A Blade is sort of like a 2nd dagger, it has attack, but is used as a weapon in many skills. They also require luck and dex for equips and damage. The unique thing besides the Blade, is the skills and the job advancing. They have 6 advancements, at level 10, 20, 30, 55, 70, and 120. They are a very unique class and require NX mastery books (just like Evans). These skills are listed below.

HAVE FUN WITH YOUR DUAL BLADE!

SOME OF MY BUILDS REQUIRE ALL THE MASTERY BOOKS in BOLD
I do not have a 4th Job Build because you need regular mastery books anyways, so it depends if you
can afford them, good luck. :] NX mastery books also give 1 SP.

Lvl-Names-NX mastery books
Lv. 10 Rogue - None
Lv. 20 Dual Recruit - None
Lv. 30 Dual Acolyte - Slash Storm
Lv. 55 Dual Master - Tornado Spin
Lv. 70 Slasher - Mirror Image, Flying Assulter
Lv. 120 Dual Lord - Thorns, Sudden Raid

There are other builds, but you can do anything you would like, sometimes I just like to experiment and get a little of everything.

A weird thing is Dual Bladers can only be made in KMS from February 25~May 9, but I do not know why.

According the the website, it states:

"You can create a Dual Blade character during the limited period, you cannot create a Dual Blade character after the limited period. " (Except in Korean)

NOTE: You can NOT make a Thief ahead of time at level 20, you have to pick the Dual Blade option when starting the game.
NOTE 2: YOU CAN OVERLAP SP FROM CERTAIN ADVANCEMENTS!

AP Build


Dual Bladers use Luck and Dex like any other thief.

Regular Dex
Your dex should be twice your level to 40. After 41, you should start to only put 1 dex until your dex is 160, which is the requirement to wear the last dagger (Reverse+Timeless) at 120.
Low Dex
Your dex should be twice your level to 40 like the regular dex, but cap it at around 70~100. The dex from equipment can allow you to wear higher level daggers.
Dexless
You NEVER add dex. Simple enough, it will always be 25.

1st Job (10-Rogue)



LVL 10 +1 Double Stab(1)
LVL 11 +3 Double Stab(4)
LVL 12 +3 Double Stab(7)
LVL 13 +3 Double Stab(10)

LVL 18 +3 Save SP(15)
LVL 19 +3 Save SP(18)
LVL 20 +3 Save SP(21)

10 Double Stab
21 Saved SP

EXPLANATION: Double Stab is to be 10 for Triple stab. Dark Sight will not be need and instead saving SP because Triple stab can go to 10. Dark Sight will be maxed later and Nimble body is useless because they already have high avoidability.

2nd Job (20-Dual Recruit)



LVL 20 +10 Triple Stab(10), +5 Mastery(5), +6 Booster(6)
LVL 21 +3 Mastery(8)
LVL 22 +3 Mastery(11)

LVL 27 +3 Dark Sight(4)
LVL 28 +3 Dark Sight(7)
LVL 29 +3 Dark Sight(10)
LVL 30 +3 Dark Sight(13)

10 Triple Stab(MAX)
19 Mastery
6 Booster
3 Disorder
13 Dark Sight

EXPLANATION: . Triple Stab is helpful damage attack and mob attack till 30. So it is maxed. Mastery doesn't need to be 20 but can be 19, they have accuracy already from both Dex and Luck. Mastery will be maxed later though. Booster is more helpful then you think, but will stay at level 6 which is a minute. Later Booster will be maxed and dark sight will be finished maxed later.

2nd Job+ (30-Dual Acolyte)



Mastery Book Build
LVL 30 +1 Slash Storm (1)
LVL 31 +1 Final Blow(1), +2 Self Haste(2)

LVL 35 +3 Self Haste(14)
LVL 36 +3 Self Haste(17)

LVL 50 +1 Final Blow (20), +2 Dark Sight(15)
LVL 51 +3 Dark Sight(17)
LVL 52 +3 Dark Sight(20)
LVL 53 +3 Booster(9)
LVL 54 +3 Booster(12)
LVL 55 +3 Booster(15)

20 Slash Storm(MAX)
20 Final Blow(MAX)
20 Self Haste(MAX)
20 Dark Sight(MAX)
15 Booster

EXPLANATION: I would max haste early because it is helpful for mobility purposes and CPQ. 1 Slash Storm helps you kill mobs in the beginning. Maxing Slash Storm will let you hit more monsters, while gaining range and damage. Final Blow is then maxed as a 1v1 attack. The extra SP maxes Dark Sight and booster. Final Blow later is replaced by Bloody Storm later. Booster is still finished in later builds.

No Mastery book Build

3rd Job (55-Dual Master)



LVL 56 +3 Flash Jump(3)
LVL 57 +3 Flash Jump(6)
LVL 58 +3 Flash Jump(9)
LVL 59 +3 Flash Jump(12)
LVL 60 +3 Flash Jump(15)
LVL 61 +3 Flash Jump(18)
LVL 62 +2 Flash Jump(20), + 1 Save SP (1)
LVL 63 +3 Save SP(4)
LVL 64 +3 Save SP(7)
LVL 65 +3 Save SP(10)
LVL 66 +3 Save SP(13)
LVL 67 +3 Save SP(16)
LVL 68 +3 Save SP(19)
LVL 69 +3 Save SP(22)
LVL 70 +3 Save SP(25)

20 Flash Jump(MAX)
25 Save SP

EXPLANATION: Flash Jump is fun to use and very helpful to travel with, especially with Haste already. Why Maxed? I maxed Flash Jump for MP purposes. Flash Bang and Tornado spin are kind of useless and not needed, because it is replaced by 4th job skills. So its not worth the SP.But they will still be maxed in next job because of extra SP.

LVL 116 ANY SKILL
LVL 117 ANY SKILL
LVL 118 ANY SKILL
LVL 119 ANY SKILL
LVL 120 ANY SKILL

EXPLANATION: Upper Stab is helpful for more damage while being a mob attack and is maxed with the saved SP. 1 Mirror Image allows a little higher damage. 1 Assaulter increases mobility and the rest of the SP is put on Bloody Storm for mobbing. Bloody Storm replaces Slash Storm because it hits more enemies and damage is increased. Mirror Image is the next important skill adding more damage. Dead Owl helps as an attack bonus. Advanced Dark Sight is maxed next as it is just like dark sight except when you attack there is a change of still being in dark sight. The rest of the points go into booster and next is Flash Bang which is helpful for BIG mobs because it hits up to 15 enemies when maxed. The rest of the SP from 110-120 can be used in anything such as Endure and Nimble Body.

Upper Stab 20
Flying Assaulter 20
Bloody Storm 10
Dead Owl 20
Mirror Image 30
Advanced Dark Sight 20
Flash Bang 20
Booster 20
33 Extra Skill Points.

4th Job (120-Dual Lord)


Just like all 4th Jobs, it depends on how rich you are and how many mastery books you can get. Just make your own build get what you think is most useful and needed. But sometimes you just have to get a little of everything. Mastery Books are dropped by various monsters and bosses. 2 Skill's Mastery books, Thorns and Sudden Raid, can BOTH be dropped and can also be bought from the cash shop.
