Blade Master

Blade Masters have a wide variety of attack and defense skills, making them a powerful force on the battlefield.

Being experts in the field of defense, the Blade Master has reached the pinnacle of protecting themselves—and their allies with their Winged Protector— from incoming attacks. Even then, their offensive tactics are not to be taken lightly either, as they can quickly switch to either the Flock of Blades or Starstrike techniques to overwhelm their enemies.

The Blade Master's mastery in acting as a tank and their importance certainly doesn't go unnoticed. All martial artists rely on the Blade Master's abilities to maneuver around the enemy, parry without pause, and make their opponent question if lightning sometimes strikes twice.

Available Races: Jin, Yun
