Unlike other classes, the Force Master attacks at long range, dealing heavy damage from a safe distance. Their swift strikes and ability to remain on the move while attacking makes them a dynamic addition to any battle. They are less durable than the other classes, so careful positioning is key to their survival.

The Force Master is able to freely switch between elements; their searing Fire abilities stack damage with repeated attacks, while the freezing Ice powers control the battlefield and enhance their defenses. With careful focus they can even snatch an enemy and hold them suspended in the air, leaving that foe helpless against incoming attacks.

Other classes can’t compete with the Force Master’s ability to handle groups of enemies, but PvP arenas prove more challenging than ever. Only a truly skilled Force Master can overcome the direct attention of a fellow warrior.

BuildsEdit

Force Masters can choose to use either a fire build or an ice build. The build choice only determines what the main element of damage an FM comes from. A fire FM can still access some ice skills and vice versa for an ice FM. While most FMs will use the fire element in PVE, with recent item additions ice has become a much more viable build. Ice is often used in 1v1 and 3v3 arena PVP, but using a fire build works well against a few match ups.

Fire Force MasterEdit

Fire Force Masters rely a lot on micromanaging their buffs to maximize their dps. A good Fire FM will always have their enemy burned to maximize their fire attacks which will normally deal extra damage to burned targets or will have other positive effects. A good Fire FM will also always have their Dragon Blaze fire element buff procced at all times. This buffs gives FMs a flat 100 fire element damage with an additional 40% fire element damage based on the FMs equipment. Thus, if an FM has 100 base fire element damage the buff would give a total of 140 extra fire damage. The yellow soul badge from Tower of Mushin floor 20 can also give this buff when Dual Dragons is cast. Once an FM obtains a Draken Bracelet from Naryu Sanctum, they should upgrade to a Tiger Bracelet to gain an additional 270% AP damage on their Blazing Beam after a successful Dual Dragons cast.

The Fire FM rotation should include Blazing Beam, Blazing Palm, and Frost Palm (2,LMB,RMB). Since all of the skills in the FM tool kit operate with a universal delay except Blazing Palm and Frost Palm, they should be cast between every skill an FM uses. Short Fuse (Fire C) can be cast for extra chi if you need it and to help stack bleed. Dual Dragons and Dragonblaze should be cast whenever possible to reset the buffs they give (Frost Fury and Fire Fury). Frost Sheath (Ice V) should be cast at specific times in boss fights as a party save. A good FM knows which boss AoEs to use it for so it does not hurt the party's dps. The FMs resist skills Q, E, and SS can either be used to dodge boss AoEs or reposition the FM. Since Q and E will move you behind the a target if casted close, sometimes using the Q and E to reposition the FM outside a boss AoE is the best choice.


Ice Force MasterEdit

ItemizationEdit

While most classes in Blade and Soul use the same equip line as each other, specific builds will sometimes require specific items to maximize their effectiveness. Force Masters will normally use these build specific equipment. Secondary Soul Badges should be fused into the Primary when Soul Badge fusion becomes available.

As an additional note, elemental damage does more for Force Master than it does for other classes due to the FMs Dragon Blaze and Dragon Frost abilities giving extra elemental damage buffs based on equipment elemental damage. It is highly suggested upgrading at least the Pinnacle Earring to an epic elemental accessory unless the FM expects to obtain the Skybreak Spire legendary elemental accessories quickly.

Stage 2 is very helpful in several fights if used properly. Stage 3 is very good for 6v6 PvP as well as making the skill more effective at dealing with trash mobs. However, due to the cost and lack of impact on boss DPS, this skills should be prioritized after DPS related skills have been finished.
