Yeah, Longsword hits harder and is perfect for Vortex and other skills,Dual Blade is faster, good for melee: PvP and some bosses.
I guess that makes sense. What would a good stat build be? I looked up a guide that said 7 STR and 3 DEX every level, that any good?
From 1 to 110 just stat enough for your gear, with all extra points into strength. Then from there on, every even level= 5 STR, every odd level= 3 DEX 2 STR
One simple example:Activate Parchblade Dance. It will give a chance toput Bloodlet status onto target with some of your hits.When you see Bloodlet on your target, you hitStalagstrike to deal additional damage with itand stun target for 3 sec. (Sage. For Demon don't know.)Demon adds 1 second to it, making it 4. Also you must have both Parchedblade and Stalagstrike Sage/Demon for it to work.Also, you have Heart Shatter. Hit target with it to reduceits Phys and Metal defence during the rest of the fight(unless really long). It increases damage dealt by you,Cleric and phys squad mates (BM, Barb, Sin, Seeker...).Mind Shatter will reduce Wood and Water defence, itwill increase damage dealt by Mystic, Veno, Wizard ifthey are in your squad.Soul Shatter reduces target's Fire and Earth defence,but lasts for 20 sec only, and have 3 min cooldown.Use it sparingly (harder bosses when Wiz is fightingon your side). These last three unfortunately don't work in PvP, so seekers going for more PK orientated may not get much use out of these.
