Stone-of-Life-Duel-Blade-BuildThis S.O.L Stone of Life EX Dual Blade Guide/Build will go over what’s good and what to avoid. This class uses short blades for quick deadly attacks and can dual wield daggers. You can reset your skills and training at any time by visiting Graystone and Old Town so don’t worry if you invest in the wrong thing. The Dual Blade not only has the fastest normal attacks, it also has the most attack power because of dual wielding daggers.

Dual Blade Guide/Build

Action Style

These will change your normal attack action. Once unlocked you can change between each freely.

Dual Blade – A basic Action Style of Dual Blade consisting of 3 attacks.
Assassin (Req *23 & LV25) – Better suited for 1 on 1 battles delivering greater damage..
Sword Dancer (Req *90 & LV70) – Ideal for fight multiple foes at once.
Blade Master (Req *150 & LV150) – Fast attack with strong knock back suited for groups.

* = Numbers of stars you need from dungeons. You can check how many you have on the first tab in the main menu.

Power Attack

Your power attack charges with combo attacks and you can see the meter at the bottom of the screen filling up. These are associated directly with your Action Style’s so to unlock new ones you’ll have to increase your level and get stars in dungeons.

Step 1 – Shoot strong exploding sword powers in 8 directions.

Step 2 – Powerful attack that throws 3 flying vacuum swords.

Step 3 – Can throw multiple swords.

Step 4 – Flying swords with knock back for surrounding opponents.

Training Skills

All are passive. The first 2 tabs vary between classes while the resistance and power attack tabs are the same for all. Located in the statues area on the S.Skill tab. Use Style points from leveling up (2 per level) to increase strength.

Combo Attack Combo Attack 1%-10% Achieve 10 combos and 30% of HP will recover at a certain rate.

Skills

Same for all classes except for S.Skills. These are what you’ll use most to attack monsters and are available for every class except S.Skills which are unique. Use skill points from leveling up (1 gained per level) to increase and cost 1 point each for every level with the max being 10. If your patient you can find all of these as drops without having to pay 7,500-30,000g for them in towns. Visit Roger in Graystone and pay 50,000g to reset and reallocate.

Destruction Magic

Fire-Bolt Fire Bolt 7,500g* 15/51%-42/150% Fires 3 flaming fire bolts and delivers fire elemental damage to enemies. Good for large groups as it will pass through them, but will usually only hit the enemies once so Ice Bolt is better for 1 on 1.
Inferno Inferno S.AOE 10,000g* 15/39%-42/120% Shoots a fire beam that will hurt enemies and consume MP every second while held down.
Meteor Meteor M.AOE 30,000g** 50/105%-95/330% Drops a meteor from the sky that damages with fire in an area. Cast right away when Blizzard, Land Collapse, and Thunder Bolt require charge time. No cast distance limit so you can blast enemies from across the screen and they wont attack you.
Flame-Nova Flame Nova L.AOE 30,000g*** 65/65%-137/200% Damages enemies with fire and has max cast distance. This and Lightning Nova are the strongest Destruction skills.
Flame-Barrier Flame Barrier 15000g** 55/69%/10s-118/150%/10s Hurts things with fire that get too close. Hold down for a few seconds to cast.

 

Ice-Bolt Ice Bolt 7,500g* 15/58%-42/175% Launches 3 freezing ice bolts that delivers water damage. The best bolt for causing the most pain to single targets as all projectiles will land a hit.
Ice-Lance Ice Lance S.AOE 10,000g* 15/39%-42/120% Shoots a water beam that hurts enemies and consume MP every second while held down.
Blizzard Blizzard M.AOE 30,000g** 55/62%-118/170% Ice storm damages with water to those in radius.
Frozen-Nova Frozen Nova L.AOE 30,000g*** 65/69%-137/150% Attacks with water and can be cast at max distance. Weakest of all skills of same tier making it obsolete for about 99% of fights.
Ice-Barrier Ice Barrier 15,000g** 55/69%/10s-118/150%/10s Hurts things with water that get too close. Hold down for a few seconds to cast.

 

Stone-Bolt Stone Bolt 7,500g* 15/69%-42/200% Hurls gigantic boulders to deliver earth damage.
Stone-Spear Stone Spear S.AOE 10,000g* 15/39%-42/120% Shoots an earth beam that hurts enemies and consume MP every second while held down.
Land-Collapse Land Collapse M.AOE 30,000g** 55/59%-118/230% Stone earth pillars hurt foes within radius.
Earthquake Earthquake L.AOE 30,000g*** 65/67%-137/175% Hurts with earth and can be cast at max distance. Weaker than fire and wind skills of same tier making it obsolete for about 99% of fights.
Stone-Barrier Stone Barrier 15,000g** 55/69%/10s-118/150%/10s Hurts things with earth that get too close. Hold down for a few seconds to cast.

 

Lightning-Bolt Lightning Bolt 7,500g* 15/58%-42/175% Large lightning the causes wind damage.
Chain-Lightning Chain Lightning S.AOE 10,000g* 15/39%-42/120% Shoots a wind beam that continually hurts enemies and consumes MP while held down.
Thunder-Bolt Thunder Bolt M.AOE 30,000g** 55/60%-118/195% Drops lightning from the sky to hurt foes in radius.
Lightning-Nova Lightning Nova L.AOE 30,000g*** 65/69%-137/200% Damages enemies with wind and has max cast distance. This and Flame Nova are the strongest Destruction skills.
Wind-Barrier Wind Barrier 15,000g** 55/69%/10s-118/150%/10s Hurts things with wind that get too close. Hold down for a few seconds to cast.

Trap Magic

Great for when you know there is a bunch of bad guys heading towards you or for taking down bosses early in the game. All traps damage over time. Hold till green then let go to place. None of them will ever land a critical hit which helps make them obsolete around level 80, though the slow de-buff from Glaciers Bondage can still be useful.

Booby Trap Booby Trap 7,500g* 65/80-137/440 Lays trap that continuously hurt enemies with physical damage.
Lava-Bondage Lava Bondage 20,000g** 65/80-137/440 Strongest trap that inflicts fire damage with a burning effect on enemies for extra damage.
Glaciers-Bondage Glaciers Bondage 20,000g*** 65/80-137/440 Water damage that slows enemies movement speed making it useful in late game.
Land-Bondage Land Bondage 20,000g*** 65/80-137/440 Says it stuns enemies, but it doesn’t seem to effect them at all besides regular earth damage.
Storm-Bondage Storm Bondage 20,000g*** 65/80-137/440 Only does wind damage without any special effect making it the least effective trap.

Buff Magic

Energy-Shield Energy Shield 20,000g*** 55/21%/30s-118/30%/130s Blocks a certain % of physical damage. Stacks well with other buffs. This is more valuable than Iron Skin later in the game as it will block much more damage.
Iron-Skin Iron Skin 20,000g* 55/11%/30s-118/20%/130s Increases your defense by a % based on what your wearing. The stronger the armor the more benefit you’ll get.
Reflect-Shield Reflect Shield 30,000*** 55/21%/30s-118/30%/130s Has a chance to void incoming damage and reflect it back to the attacker. Great for dodging almost 1/3 of attacks!
Respiration Respiration 7,500g* 55/30/16s-118/165/45s Increases HP recovery for a certain period of time.
Shield-Regeneration Shield Regeneration 15,000g*** 55/30/16s-118/165/65s This is a must as it recharges your shield quick. Max recover limit is much higher then max HP recovery limit making your shield better to invest in for survivability.
Weakness-Domain Weakness Domain 7,5000g* 55/21%/16s-118/30%/16s Reduced physical attack power of surrounding enemies.
Anti-Force-Domain Anti-Force Domain 10,000g** 55/21%/16s-118/30%/16s Reduces the physical defense of surrounding enemies. Only works with weapon attacks.
Fuzzy-Domain Fuzzy Domain 10,000g* 55/51%-118/60% Drops the power of curse from the sky to destroy the shield of enemies at the drop point.
Flame-Shower Flame Shower 7,500g*** 55/51%/16s-118/60%/16s Inflicts a burning statues on surrounding foes that hurts over time.
Ice-Bound Ice Bound 7,500g*** 55/51%/16s-118/60%/16s Summons crystals of ice that slow opponents. Helps get ride of things chasing you.

S.Skill Dual Blade

Blow of Assassination Blow of Assassination 30,000g** 55/7%/16s-118/70%/65s Increases critical damage for a certain time period.
Quick Movement Quick Movement 30,000g*** 55/12%/16s-118/30%/65s Increases your Dodge Rate for a limited time. Becomes obsolete once you upgrade Rapid Avoidance fully as the max Dodge Rate is 30%.

    I am playing dual blade only in SOL
    Both rapid avoidance and quick movement increase Dodge rate by 30% But first one is passive
    If rapid avoidance is maxed then quick movement will not be needed.

    P.s any advise on farming set items for dual blade?

    •  

      The only place I’ve found set items so far is through the portal in towns (up to level 95 gear), bosses and towers in dungeon challenges (gear is around the level of the dungeon), and the easiest place to find both set and legend items is the Arena inside the chest between rounds (by far the best legends I’ve found). All set equipment work for all classes, but you probably want some daggers. The only set daggers I’ve found were through the portal in town, Adventurer Lv10 and Pioneer Lv50. It’s funny you mentioned the skills cause I was gonna finish filling them in today.

  2.  

    Thanks for the advise :)

    Just want to ask any quick way of farming money?

  3.  

    What does the star means? I cant change my charact. Into assassin coz it needs gem. Is there any way to change style without using any gem? Please help. Thanks!

    •  

      The star is how many stars you have collected in Dungeons. You can unlock for free when you have reached the required level and have enough stars.

  4.  

    is the last boss is shadow maker??? after i kill shadow maker i dont recieve any quest .. so what shall i do?

  5.  

    After levelling up around 10-14, my shield bar no longer works ??? It won’t recover anymore and is alway empty. Why?? I’m a dual blader

    •  

      Sounds like maybe you unequipped something that gave you a shield. The only place to get shields is from item buffs. Might be a glitch too, sometimes funny things happen when you don’t use your class specific weapons.

  6.  

    How can i farm money as quick as posible. pls help me guys ^_^ thankx!

  7.  

    I am level 34 and still using duel blades. I am trying to change my style to assassin but it wont let me and keeps asking to pay 100gems but I dont have because im playing free… could I get assassin class without paying?

    •  

      It’s free already you just need to meet the level requirement and have earned enough dungeon stars.

      •  

        thanks for answering…. what are these dungeon stars and where do I go to earn them?

        •  

          Yeah.helpfull

        •  

          Dungeons are the places where, sometimes your quest lays in there, contains enemies you need to exterminate specifically the boss. By defeating the dungeon monsters, entitles you to have a rate given by your performance by how much progress did you made whether its a single star, 2 star, or 3 star ( So far only 2 star i can have even how much effort i put in it). Your stars accumulate as you go defeating dozens of dungeons. By so doing this, meaning, when your total amount of stars reaches 23 thereby can you only unlock the 2nd tier of assassin style.

    Hey guys, here’s a tip for farming money,
    Complete dungeon challenges in 3stars for a bigger reward,
    You must finish it with the sub mission given, and depending its type,
    Sub missions gives you a higher score that helps you to gain higher star
    Ex: hidden objects, statues, or killing enemies according to the sub mission given, and also finding treasures.

    But for me, I don’t need a lot of money now since I got almost all of the items I needed,
    I have 1m stock here,

    BTW, keep an eye to those dungeon with better reward and keep on completing it as long as you want ;)

    I hope ive help you guys

    •  

      an you give me you stat bro? or your items you used with its options? ik it’s a bit demanding but hope u understand :D

  9.  

    I see all the class specifics but what do you think is a good build for a duel blade?

  10.  

    Wanna ask about field boss, ex. North of ravenwood, theres lv 16 boss there. Are the another field boss like this, it was really nice to farm them

  11.  

    hello sir. im a newbie at this game so i wanted to ask if where to find identification stone easy? reply asap. tnx.

  12.  

    I’m newbie in game and my question is where is the best place for higher lvls drop , like 90+ of course sets or legends , dual blade

  13.  

    i’m level 101 i have some fancy items set of dagger armor ring helmet etc. just wondering why only dagger can use 2 hands why does sword staff etc cannot equipped with shield any suggestion?? ‘m fuckin obsess to this game

    •  

      Dude it is because your using a dual blade character. It has its own specifics, and that is only to use daggers (just like those assassins- and yeah well its an assassin class itself). That is why when you try to use weapons other than dagger, it won’t work. If you want to have a knight which uses a single handed weapon and a shield, you can create a new knight character class. Your new fancy items for knight, well, you can still transfer it from your dual blade character via your stash. Hope it helps. ;)

  14.  

    i got my dual blade crit% cap = 30%
    yet, my passive dodge from rapid avoidance just 20% at max, different from this build eh?

    and using all dodge rate equipment, mine is 37%
    without quick movement buff, while buffed it could be 50%+
    i played on iOS, is it different? or with 50%+ dodge written on status, only 30% will be performed?

  15.  

    Probably a dumb question but I just started playing recently and I somehow lost the ability to regenerate SP. I probably got rid of something I shouldnt have. I figured there would be more of an indicator telling me that. And also how do I get it back? Thank you if anyone can help.
