Analysis of Top Moonlord/Marauder Build (From Korea)

Swordmaster Heraldry Plates/Crests

What are the suitable Heraldry Plates/Crests for Swordmasters? As you know there are both Stats-based Heraldry and Skills-based Heraldry. I would not be talking about ALL the plates available, but just what I consider is good for Swordmasters, and some other possible alternatives.

Note: I do not have the names of all the Heraldry Plates from DN SEA. I will be using my own translation from the CN/TW servers. Nonetheless, I will explain what the plate does, so you will roughly get the idea which Heraldry Plate it is.

  2. Physical Attack/Magic Attack – Depending on the build you are using for your Swordmaster, pick one of them. Thisamplifies your attack stat by a huge margin. Being Hybrid, you can choose to use them both at the same time, but you would have to sacrifice another Heraldry for it. Read the rest of this entry

Guide on Swordmaster Skill Build

Welcome to the Guide on Swordmaster Skill Build!

Some things to note before I start with explaining swordmaster skill builds.

  1. Looking at the swordmaster skill tree, the leftmost column contains all the physical-based skills and the rightmost column contains the magic-based skills.
  2. Pure builds means to ignore the other attack type. For example, pure physical build means to ignore all the magic-based attack skills.
  3. There can be full hybrid or half hybrid. For example, a half hybrid magic build means learning the magic ultimate skill and learning some of the physical-based skills but may not reach till the level 32 physical skill.
  4. What I mean by pre-requisite is that the skill has to be of a certain level in order to unlock another skill. You will Read the rest of this entry
