Looking for the best Lost Ark Striker builds? Here are all of the skills you’ll need to dominate PvE and PvP battles as the Martial Artist.

When it comes to melee DPS classes in Lost Ark, it’s safe to say players have plenty of choice with each of the specializations offering a variety of different playstyles.

As a result, it can be difficult to choose which class suits you best. However, if you enjoy hand-to-hand combat mixed with aerial combos and huge amounts of mobility, look no further than the Striker.

Capable of dishing out massive bursts of DPS as well as being incredibly fun to play, the Striker is the perfect class for players who want to break down their enemies with lethal melee attacks.

Of course, in order to get the most out of the Striker, you’ll need to be familiar with the best PVE and PVP builds, and luckily, we’ve got you covered.

The Striker uses melee combat and aerial combos to take out enemies.

Striker, Wardancer, Scrapper, & Soulfist

While the Striker, Wardancer, Scrapper, and Soulfist all fall under the banner of the Martial Artist class, they each offer different playstyles that you need to be familiar with.

For starters, the Scrapper uses two huge gauntlets and hits hard at close-range. With a strong combination of attack, defense, mobility, and lasting power, they have the tools for any encounter that comes their way.

Interweaving martial arts with elemental magic, the Wardancer still takes on enemies at close range but empowers their blows with powerful magic. The Soulfist is similar but can attack from long-range and close the distance on their opponents, channeling special energy called Adamance.

Finally, the Striker is the most traditional Martial Artist class, using their series of fast attacks and aerial combos to take out any enemies in their path.
