Recommended Engravings

Slot 1Slot 2
Remaining Energy (Level 1)Master of Ambush (Level 3)

The Remaining Energy Class Engraving can be kept at level 1 since you mainly need this to completely stop the Death Arts meter from depleting for 2 seconds. Since the Deathblade will almost always attack the back of your targets, getting Master of Ambush is great to further enhance your DPS.

Stat Tuning

Swiftness750
Domination249
Crit1

Stat tuning in PvP is mostly fixed on all the advanced classes. The reasoning for this setup is that Swiftness increases your Atk. Speed, Move Speed, and reduces Cooldowns while Domination increases your damage against enemies who are affected with debuffs crowd control effect. The 1 point in Crit is used to enable critical hits in PvP.

When you reach level 25, you should be able to set Moonlight Sonic to level 10 and a few points in Spin Cutter to get the first tripod. This will enable you to clear mobs easier and level up with ease.

Tripods are essential when it comes to the overall power of a skill. Obtaining Tripods should be your focus when leveling up the skills of your chosen class.

Deathblade Strengths & Weaknesses

Deathblade Strengths

High Mobility

Most of the Deathblade's skills have a lot of movement which make easy to close in on enemies and hard to catch.

Good Crowd Control

Most of the Deathblade's skills also have crowd control so it is easy to unleash combos when you catch and enemy in one.

Deathblade Weaknesses

Can Be Easily Knocked Down

The Deathblade has very little Push Immunity so it is easy to knockdown the Deathblade. This can be deadly especially if you opponent has a lot of skills that can knock you down.

High Skill Floor

Since the Deathblade heavily relies on its combos to catch enemies and deal damage it requires a relatively high skill level to pull off.
