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

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

However, if you’re looking for a Martial Artist class that can dish out hefty DPS while also providing your teammates with useful buffs during encounters, then look no further than the Wardancer.

Capable of storing up elemental magic to unleash devastating attacks on their opponents, the Wardancer is a class with plenty of mobility and damage to boot.

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

Striker, Wardancer, Scrapper, & Soulfist

The Wardancer builds up elemental power to unleash devastating attacks.

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 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.

Next, 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.

Finally, 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.
