Striker PvE Build

The Striker is a Martial Artist that relies on kicking and punching to deal damage to his foes. The normal playstyle revolves around generating elemental orbs to then unleash powerful esoteric abilities. Most of his damage comes from these esoteric skills and they also rely on attacking from the back.

Desired Stats

The Striker wants to focus mainly on Specialty to generate as much gauge as possible before unleashing their burst. Secondarily you want to go for Crit.

Ultimate

What ultimate to choose is up to your preference. Essence of the Beast is overall more damage but relies on a longer time window while Great Teachnic simply is faster with a little less damage output.

Class Engravings

The more commonly used engraving for the Striker is the Deathblow Engraving. It adds an additional elemental orb to your gauge and increases the damage of your esoteric skills for every additional orb consumed. Every Skill consumes the current amount of charged orbs. This is a very burst oriented playstyle that relies on building up 4 orbs, debuffing the target and then follow up with a burst.

Element’s Balance recently got changed in Korea and allows the Striker to play with more consistent damage as it only consumes one single elemental orb per esoteric skill and also increases their damage. Please bear in mind, since this change has been implement recently I cannot go into depth about the Element’s Balance playstyle.

Skilltree

The Skilltree is pretty much set. If you get additional skillpoints you can also max out Sky Shattering Blow for additional gauge gain or simple replace one of your two movement skills with Sleeping Ascent Celebration.

Viable Engravings

The Striker as a DPS wants to mainly again focus on the following engraving:

  • Grudge
  • Cursed Doll
  • Adrenaline


Additional engraving can be very strong like:

  • Backstabbing Master
  • Spirit Absorption


You also want to always run your class engraving.

Basic Rotation

The basic rotation for the Special Strike playstyle is pretty simple and straightforward but hard to execute in my opinion.

  • First you want to generate 4 elemental orbs, to then use Lightning Whisper to debuff your target.
  • You then follow this up with Lightning Tiger Strike for immense damage.
  • After that you have a short window to use Moon Flash Kick and Sweeping Kick to then use Tiger Emerges. This must all be done from the back for maximum potential.
  • After you have used both of your Esoteric skills, you go back to generating elemental orbs until they come off cooldown.
