Blade & Soul KR test server has been patched with the major skill tree revamp on 24th Nov 2016. Destroyer skill changes will be covered in this post. Hongmoon ultimate skills are not released in the test server yet. Take note that the effects are not final and might be changed before the official release.
After the major skill changes in July 2016, Shadow elemental skill set finally deserves some serious attentions from Destroyer players. I have been playing earth elemental destroyer (or to be more accurate, Ani-cancel-based destroyer; elemental system was introduced later) since forever. I have made the switch to Shadow Destroyer after the patch.
Shadow Destroyer has received multiple minor boost over the year but still not good enough to compete with its Earth counterpart. The major revamp in July has finally raised Shadow destroyer to the same level as Earth Destroyer, if not better. However, there is a catch to Shadow elemental skill set: it is highly gear dependent! (I will elaborate on that in the guide).
Therefore, i don’t recommend new players who have not reached the level cap or are not fully geared to try out this build. Although this Shadow Destroyer Guide is meant to replace my previous Earth Destroyer Guide, I would still keep the previous guide updated with the latest changes (soon) for the sake of new Destroyer players. Also, I am mainly a PVE player; I am not sure about the capability of shadow destroyer in PVP.
