What are the differences between blade master and blade dancer? What special features make blade dancer a brand new class? Today, we will put the emphasis on the comparison between the blade master and Blade Dancer, Here we go:




Blade dancers are all cute Lyn dwarves, also called Lyn blade master; while blade master can be played with the Jin and the Yun. For people who like smart characters, LBM is a better choice.






Lyn blade master is a hybrid of Force Master, Destroyer, and Blade Master, a combination of attack and crowd control. It is not good at tanking or effective at solo while Blade Master is in the Top 3. BMs can tank solo on boss easily with their blocking skill.


LBM is easier to play in most respects due to an overall simpler skill tree, BM will be much stronger than LBM by a mastered player.


On a group PVE, BM = Tank/DPS, LBM = Support/sub DPS.


3.Skills features




Compared with LBM, BM have a unique block ability which blocks or deflects almost all frontal attacks. BMs are also skilled in sustained DPS.


LBMs have special phantom grip skill and their block depends on 0.5 sec or 400% defense tab. They are good at burst damage but has a low DPS, which means they can only use a set of combo in PVP. After that, you win or lose. LBMs are heavily depend on lightning draw. However, their lightning draw has a longer CD than BM and they do a far lower damage than BM during CD. But their lighting draw and quick draw "LB" attacks do a lot more damage than BM.


4.Battle stance


BM has 3 stances: basic stance, draw stance and summons soulblades.


LBM: basic stance and draw stance.


5.Draw stance switch


Though LBM and BM has draw skill, BM can switch to draw stance through lightning draw, blindside, ss and divine retribution, LBM only has lightning draw.
