Dual Blade

Dual Blades live by one mantra: the best defense is a good offense.

Wielding Twin Swords, the Dual Blade is a melee-centred class, mastered only by the Jin and Yun. The swiftness of these martial artists allows them to be as elusive to catch as the thunderbolt.

Invoking the might of the Shifting Blades art allows for cycling through stances to lash out a flurry of blows, while the Lotus art channels the energy of harmony in a floral spectacleto deadly effect. Instil your foes with fear as your blades dance in an elegant maelstrom, flashing around and through adversaries, before quickly eliminating the threat through a barrage of rapid sword strikes.
