As Dark Knight you have to choose between Awakening or Succession.

A lot of Dk are choosing Succession due to efficiency but there are some who stick to awakening due to its flashiness and mechanics.

This guide will be focusing on Awakening for Dark Knights, and I will also be giving additional information and tips for for Awakening.

5. SKILL ENCHANTMENT

 

 

 

Shadow Strike and Wrath of Vedir are both quick slot available, however, Shadow Strike has higher damage, is safer to use due to its range, and has lower cooldown compared to Wrath of Vedir. Shadow Strike can be used from afar while Wrath of Vedir needs to be closer to the target.

 

 

Obsidian Blaze and Unveiled Fate have something in common which is the WoF animation, however, compared to cast time and vulnerability, Unveiled Fate is unprotected while Obsidian Blaze has super armor.

6. LOCKED SKILLS

 

 

7. SKILL POINTS DISTRIBUTION

 

 

 

 

This is the ideal skill points distribution with every essential skill on max level. You need at least 2075 SP which is really hard to achieve. 

Without optional skills above, this will be the skill points usage, it is a lot lower and easier to get.


There you have it ! I hope this can be helpful to those who choose to play awakening dark knights

I will be making more guide for Succession, PvE, and PvP for Dark Knight.

Sweet thanks, Azaroth.

Never levelled a DK though our dear gold Supporter Aurafyre is one. Maybe I make one in the next Season Server.

 

This will save me some time googling.

So succ as per your recommendations Noted.
