The Duskblade is a very interesting breed of melee class, as they can cast powerful AoEs, combo their attacks and teleport around the battlefield. Seen as a virtual jack-of-all-trades and master of none, Duskblades are useful in just about every facet of play. When transformed into Reaper Form, Duskblades will receive damage reduction and increases in attack speed. Their skill cooldowns also are reduced which will aid in doling out the punishment when the time comes.
- One of the best classes in PvP
- Can use a variety of skill combos
- Has a transformation skill that increases attack speed, and reduces damage taken and cooldown of some skills
- Has a teleportation skill that resets cooldown when the target is killed
Duskblades can fare in PvE well both solo and in a party. Many of their attacks like Distant Cloud will deal direct damage in addition to stunning their targets. They have many combinations of skills in their arsenal so they make very quick work of mobs as they continue their quests. Their skill Slash of Pride is invaluable for taking on large groups of enemy combatants.
Crowd control is the name of the game for a Duskblade. Making sure to stun their targets and blinking away to a safe distance will help turn the tides of war. They will fare very well in squads containing tanks and Blademasters as their debuffs compliment the direct damage of some of the spongier classes.
