Dancing Strikes Bladedancer Guide


This build is a variation of the Shadow Daggers Bladedancer. When compared to its counterpart, this build offers a more Melee Bruiser playstyle. Where the other build wants to jump in and out of the fight, this one wants to stay in, using Dancing Strikes to move about quickly and apply Shadow Daggers while also gaining huge buffs in the process. Choose this build if you want a more Melee focused and engaging playstyle with a greater challenge.

Damage from this build comes from ramping up our buffs through Dancing Strikes and Smoke Bomb to deal huge Shadow Daggers Crits. Getting the most out of the build is not easy to pull off, but when everything clicks the result is very satisfying.

Overall, Dancing Strikes Shadow Daggers Bladedancer is a challenging build that will reward skilled players. It is capable of doing the hardest content but it won't be as easy as some other builds. The build is strongest in the Monolith of Fate, but with good gear can also tackle Dungeons. Due to the inherent danger of Melee playstyles It is not a good option for competitive Arena.
