Looking for the best Deathblade builds for Lost Ark‘s demonic assassin? Here are all of the skills you’ll need to dominate in both PvE and PvP battles.

One of the best things about Smilegate’s MMORPG Lost Ark is the vast array of classes and specializations on offer.

Take the mysterious Assassin for example. Split into the shapeshifting Shadowhunter and tri-wielding Deathblade, you can exert your vengeance on the demons swarming Arkesia in two very different ways.

If you’ve chosen to walk the path of the Deathblade, you’ll need to know which builds are the best in both the PvP and PvE settings. So, without further ado, here’s a rundown of the best skillsets for Lost Ark’s Deathblade Advanced Class.

Shrouded in shadow and armed to the teeth, the Deathblade is one of Lost Ark’s most fearsome characters.

Deathblade or Shadowhunter?

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

Reliant on speedy attacks, she’s not as tanky as her Shadowhunter sister, dealing more burst damage instead of sustained, drawn-out fights. This makes her playstyle a little more high risk but is perfect for those who are willing to sacrifice it all to bring down Arkesia’s enemies.

We recommend her for those looking for a more linear style of Assassin, but for those looking for a little more of a health buffer, we’d suggest you opt for Shadowhunter.
