Tarisland: How to Play as Cunning Shadow Swordsman

The Cunning build has some excellent skills that utilize the Poison status effect, which deals damage over time in addition to the normal attacks. The most powerful of all Shadow Swordsman attacks is the Fatal Strike, which can be used to a great extent during boss fights alongside Phantom Slashes. If you like the idea of inflicting Poison damage, then use Poison Blade and Poison Sting, while Spinning BL is excellent against groups of enemies.

Tarisland: How to Play as Duel Shadow Swordsman

As the name of the build suggests, Duel Shadow Swordsman is excellent in PvP, where you’re required to deal as much damage as possible quickly. For this build, I’ve chosen mostly instantaneous attacks with high damage and low cooldown times, such as Furious Attack and Swift Strike. You can deal ranged damage using Frenzy Throw, and if you’re facing a particularly strong opponent, then use Thirst Battle to boost your attacks and reduce your cooldown times.
