A guide on basic Wardancer skill builds in Lost Ark.

Wardancer_Fist_of_Dominance

A Wardancer’s build in Lost Ark is comprised of heavy hitting hits that gets amplified depending on the player’s positioning in reference to its foes. Along with this, some of the skills provide excellent mobility which also helps in positioning as well as in avoiding enemy attacks.

Wardancers specialize in burst damage and oftentimes have to manage their skill cooldowns to minimize downtimes on DPS. On attack windows, they usually unleash all of their heavy attacks in a short span of time. Wardancers also make use of their Elemental Meter that allows them to perform some of their most punishing attacks.

In this guide, we’ll look into the possible Wardancer builds that you can try depending on your type of gameplay. We will mainly focus on the skills build with max level 60 and assuming all quests that provide extra skill points are completed (380-414 skill points). With the latest updates and the raised level caps, certain skills can be leveled up to 11 and 12, but we will look into those on a separate guide.

  • Always buff up with Wind’s Whisper before performing your heavy attacks.

Tips for Wardancer PvP:

  • In Team Deathmatches, Wardancers should target backline attackers to put pressure on them. Use Lightning Kick to engage and follow up with a Sky Shattering Blow. Finish with a Moon Flash Kick.
  • Do not over extend when engaging especially that your skills have relatively long cooldowns. Dip using your Lightning Kick or Sleeping Ascent, and then pull back after performing your regular follow ups.
  • Have Energy Combustion up as much as possible, especially if you are being targeted often.

  • This build is built around the First Intention Engraving which makes your skills generally stronger, but disables the use of the Elemental Meter.
  • Since you will always be with a party in raids, always begin your skill rotation with Wind’s Whisperer and Roar of Courage to buff your teammates as well as put a debuff on the boss.
  • Use your Lightning Kick as another way to stay mobile and dodge incoming attacks when your dodge skill is on cooldown.
