Deathblade or Shadowhunter? – Lost Ark Shadowhunter PvP Build

Lost Ark’s Deathblade is the more conventional Assassin out of the two Advanced Classes. Slicing her enemies into ribbons and getting out without a scratch, she’s perfect for those who primary rogue-style characters in other video games.

Reliant on quick attacks, she’s not as tanky as her Shadowhunter sister, dealing more burst damage instead of sustained, dragged out fights. This makes her playstyle a little more high danger but is perfect for those who are willing to compromise everything to reduce Arkesia’s enemies.

We advise her for those searching for a more direct design of Assassin, but for those trying to find a bit more of a health buffer, we ‘d suggest you opt for Shadowhunter.
