Yay! We are down to the last 2 Skill Build guide for Kali (Ok last 3 if you include Dark summoner PVP Skill Build :X)

As like all skill build guides,  this guide only serve as a guidance/reference for you to make your own decision.

I’ll be sharing with you my reasons as usual for putting skill points into certain skills instead of another.

This time I’ll be providing a Pure PVE and PVP skill build for your choosing pleasure, but to be honest for spirit dancer, at least for 50 cap, you’re more of a hybrid where a PVE build can also work for a PVP Build as long as you tweak the generic ones I post correctly.

With that I’ll go ahead with the Generic PVE Skill Build First.

In this skill build I’ve placed the points in the following (Simliar to the Blade Dancer Kali Tree SP Allocation):

  • Level 1 Soul Wind, Sting Breeze and Fancy Turn (By default at Level 1 learnt)
  • Level 11 Spirit Blow
  • Turning Step and Dummy Ghost Max-ed at Level 50 Cap
  • Level 4 Aerial Evasion
  • Level 4 HP Mastery
  • Level 4 Mental Mastery (MAX MP Increase)
  • Level 3 Mind Conquer (MP Recovery)
  • Level 4 Phantom Guard Max at 50 Cap (Extra DMG Reduction per level)
  • Level 1 Spirit of Genie (No SP needed to learn, free skill at Level 35)
  • Level 1 Ghost Kick (Used for reducing Landing Time when using Twinkle Spin)
  • Level 1 Despair Needle (Utility in PVP)

Note: You can actually tweak this build a little by not learning Despair Needle and further leveling your Mental Master to Level 4 with those extra SP, but Despair Needle is great for utility in PVP

For the Dancer Side, here are the points allocation:

  • Level 6 Stalker (Minimum Level 6 to learn EX)
  • Level 1 Dusk Hunter
  • Level 1 Abolisher (Useful for re-lift in PVP for Combos)
  • Level 6 Sufi Dancer
  • Level 7 General Dunblade
  • Level 3 Ecstatic Dance Part 1 (For summoning of Orc for heals when solo-ing dungeon)
  • Level 2 Ecstatic Dance Part 2 (For summoning of Dark Elf for Finish Attack Buff for Party)
  • Level 2 Ecstatic Dance Part 3 (For summoning Minotaur to increase Healing received and Max HP for party)
  • Level 6 Illusion Dance
  • Level 1 Illusion Gaze
  • Level 1 Breeze Call Dance
  • Level 1 Breeze Call
  • Level 1 Graze Dance
  • Level 1 Sweet Circle
  • Level 1 Twinkle Spin
  • Level 6 Refreshing Screw/Deadly Drill
  • Level 7 Elegant Storm

For the Spirit Dancer side of the tree, it is pretty much standard:

  • Level 2 Wide Stinger
  • Level 1 Praetor
  • Stalker EX learnt

As you can see from above I have 6 SP left. But before I get to the options you may want to spend them let’s talk about why I didn’t consider leveling skills like Dusk Hunter, Stalker and Abolisher to level 11,11 and 6 respectively.

I’ve done my testing for this 2 skills with 13,600 PATK and Critical Cap with Level 6 Illusion Dance and here are the results:

  • Level 6 Abolisher : 81,000 DMG
  • Level 11 Dusk Hunter: 122,000 DMG
  • Level 11 Stalker: 105,000 DMG
  • Total: 308,000 DMG

So if you actually leveled these skills you won’t have enough SP to go and level Elegant Storm and Refreshing Screw/Deadly Drill to Level 7 and 6 respectively.

So just how much damage can Level 6 Refreshing Screw/Deadly Drill and Elegant Storm do with the same stats mentioned above?

As always with testing, here are the results:

  • Level 6 Refreshing Screw: 170,000 DMG
  • Level 7 Elegant Storm: 476,000 DMG
  • Total: 646,000 DMG

Comparing the difference in damage in percentage, you’re looking at a difference of 109%

So for PVE, going for Refreshing Screw/Deadly Drill and Elegant Storm at Level 50 cap is definitely a must.

So what can you do with the Last 6 SP that you have?

There are mainly 4 options:

  1. Get Stalker to Level 11 (Uses 5SP)
  2. Get Illusion Dance to Level 8 for more HP healed, DMG Reduction and Duration / Learn Inner Fire (Uses 5SP)
  3. Get Dusk Hunter / Abolisher to Level 6
  4. Get Mist Step to Level 5 (PVE Cooldown decreases from 18 to 14s, PVP unchanged)

Personally I’ll go for the 2nd option :D

Reason being that I’ll probably PVP with my spirit dancer as well if I had this class, and for both PVP/PVE you will want to max your illusion dance since it increase the duration.

Increased duration meant more skills can be used while you’re in your spirit enhancement state, allow you to cast more skills with increased damage, this will be better for PVE

For PVP, you actually heal more with level 8 illusion dance compared to level 6.

So why Inner Fire? Storm of Ewiniar definitely triumphs Inner fire in terms of utility because you can control/direction your ultimate and you have a long period of invincibility.

However the range of SoE is pretty short and Inner Fire might be very good to catch opponents just like how swordmasters can use infinity edge and acrobats can use divine rage.

I also prefer Inner Fire’s omnislash like-ness which is why I would go for option 2.

Hopefully this helps you build a Level 50 PVE Spirit Dancer.

Let’s move on to the Generic PVP Spirit Dancer Build

In this skill build I’ve placed the points in the following (Simliar to the Blade Dancer Kali Tree SP Allocation):

  • Level 1 Soul Wind, Sting Breeze and Fancy Turn (By default at Level 1 learnt)
  • Level 11 Spirit Blow
  • Turning Step and Dummy Ghost Max-ed at Level 50 Cap
  • Level 4 Aerial Evasion
  • Level 4 HP Mastery
  • Level 4 Mental Mastery (MAX MP Increase)
  • Level 3 Mind Conquer (MP Recovery)
  • Level 4 Phantom Guard Max at 50 Cap (Extra DMG Reduction per level)
  • Level 1 Spirit of Genie (No SP needed to learn, free skill at Level 35)
  • Level 1 Ghost Kick (Used for reducing Landing Time when using Twinkle Spin)
  • Level 1 Despair Needle (Utility in PVP)

Note: You can actually tweak this build a little by not learning Despair Needle and further leveling your Mental Master to Level 4 with those extra SP, but Despair Needle is great for utility in PVP

For the Dancer Side, here are the points allocation:

  • Level 6 Stalker (Minimum Level 6 to learn EX)
  • Level 1 Dusk Hunter (Can be used for Wall-bounce)
  • Level 1 Abolisher (Useful for re-lift in PVP for Combos)
  • Level 6 Sufi Dancer (Decent DPS, good for keep targets hit-table)
  • Level 7 General Dunblade (Great DPS)
  • Level 3 Ecstatic Dance Part 1 (For summoning of Orc for heals in KOF/Ladder PVP)
  • Level 8 Illusion Dance (Max-ed for More Heals, Buff Duration and Reduced Damage Taken)
  • Level 1 Illusion Gaze
  • Level 1 Breeze Call Dance
  • Level 1 Breeze Call
  • Level 1 Graze Dance
  • Level 1 Sweet Circle
  • Level 6 Twinkle Spin (Used in chaining many combos, extra levels will help)
  • Level 1 Refreshing Screw/Deadly Drill (Read below for more information)
  • Level 7 Elegant Storm (great for catching opponents after they use their Aerial Evasion, great damage as well)

For the Spirit Dancer side of the tree, it is pretty much standard:

  • Level 2 Wide Stinger (Grants you soul enhancement state, Praetor and General Dunblade Critical Probility increased by 90%)
  • Level 1 Praetor (the skill you want to land in PVP)
  • Stalker EX learnt

Alright things to take note in this generic build (Some are mentioned in the brackets) but firstly I want to mention that leveling Sinia Turn and Mist Step DOES NOT decrease the cooldown in PVP.

I noticed that some level 60 pure pvp skill builds available out there do level this skill (because the cooldown decreases in their level 60 cap versions? I don’t know)

For proof you can watch the video embedded towards the end of the guide, so keeping Sinia Turn and Mist Step at level 1 for PVP in DNSEA Level 50 cap is all good.

Ecstatic Dancer Part 1 is still learnt as the heal is definitely very useful in KOF/Ladder PVP, so if you are solely going for 1v1 Compensation ON Colosseum PVP, you can choose to ignore that.

If you ignore learning Ecstatic Dance you can get level 6 refreshing screw/deadly drill with Level 6 twinkle spin.

The reason why I chose to get Level 6 twinkle spin instead of Level 6 refreshing screw is because in PVP, refreshing screw is used for wall bounce in combos where you will post probably not be able to land that last hit on the target as the spinning animation will cause the opponent to be spun up into the air against the wall like a bounce which meant that the last hit will not connect.

So where else can you place your spare 8 SP (Or 13SP if you don’t learn Ecstatic Dance)

Here are some recommended options with reasons:

  • Abolisher Level 6 (if you’re using it alot in your rotation, get it to 6 for more DMG, note that the dmg growth from 1 and 6 in PVP isn’t that great)
  • Level 11 Stalker (Tracking skill that can uplift your opponent with your EX version, decent damage as well but enemies can run behind walls/statue to cause it to explode)
  • Get both Refreshing Screw and Twinkle Spin to Level 6 (Reasons mentioned above)
  • Learn Duo Ultimate (Learn Inner fire,  Inner Fire might be very good to catch opponents just like how swordmasters can use infinity edge and acrobats can use divine rage)

OR you can simply go hybrid and learn the rest of the Ecstatic Dance part 2 and 3 so you can be viable in a PVE setting as well!

All the abovementioned and damage testing is shown in this video below, including most of what is mentioned in the written guide as well.

I hope this guide is useful to all spirit dancers out there :)

I know players have been asking for item builds as well for the new Kali class but that needs time so bear with me for now.

As mentioned in the Blade Dancer Guide regardless of any skill build you follow that is ideal for you, you will need to skill reset at level 60.

So just a heads up so that you don’t blame me when this build cannot be built upon when 60 cap is released xD!

Reason is because the Kali Basic Tree skills like Physical Mastery, Turning Step, Dummy Ghost etc can further be leveled when 60 cap is released.

We however, must reach 45SP in 50 cap for us to learn our ultimate skill which is also required to unlock our 3rd job class skills.

When 60 cap arrives and you don’t reset your skill build, you will have over 45SP spent in your basic class tree which will thus cause your build to no longer be ideal.

This is something that can’t be helped and all we can do is hope that there’s a free reset scroll somehow at level 60 cap.

Next skill build guide will be the Soul Eater one which should be up by Tuesday.

Have Your Say

  1. asdfghj says:

    lol you suck at making builds

  2. Thanks for the skill build kazu, sorry for being demanding but i hope you can come up with a soul eater guide as soon as possibleXD

  3. Andy says:

    sir can u give mebest item build for spirit dancer…
    like suffix …gear…and heraldy…
    ty before if u can answer this ^_^

  4. qawi says:

    kazu can you show your skill bar..

  5. Hi! ^^ ,

    sir Kazu, can I ask your opinion ?I want to be a Spirit Dancer..
    but what i’ve been thinking right now is I’m trying to make a Spirit Dancer with a Blade Dancer skill build since you said the wide stinger already grants Soul Enhancement state….so if I max breeze call dance also,I can get both Soul Enhancement State and Blade enhancement state and I don’t need to share cooldown with illusion dance(i don’t know)…well, as Spirit dancer, I been thinking of using a strong genie only…and the other skills should be the Blade dancer skills becuz BD skill are insanely powerful…how about you opinion regarding my skill build sir?have you thought about that?

    #p/s my SD skill build is more based on your BD skill build

    • Joenas says:

      FIY, different dance as enhancement makes different skill to use.
      so if u’r in Soul Enhancement State, u’r not be able to get Blade enhancement state. that means u should choose skills that related to the enhancement state to get more DMG.

      so.. i think its ok if u wanna go w/ blade and spirit skills referring to kazu’s guidance. it’s give balance in blade and spirit’s skills @_@

    • Joenas says:

      edit*
      i think wide stinger only give u 90% chance of critical hit and ++ maybe
      *correct me if i’m wrong lol

  6. mark says:

    I think the spirit blow must be lvl 12? because lvl 11 -368%+2731 while lvl 12 -372%+5796 look how it increases! XD

  7. mark says:

    last question sir Kazu do I have to put breeze call dance on my quickslot(hotkey) given that I’m spirit dancer and abolisher given that you can use it by turning step then normal attack. I’m really confuse XD cuz all skills won’t fit the quickslot(hotkey). Pls answer my questions! thanks in advance ^^

    • AikawaKazu says:

      no need to put abolisher in hotkey bar, just do turning step + normal attack. means your dodging skill + left mouse click.spirit blow 11-12 only the “raw” dmg increase which is the “+xxxx+ portion, and only 4% dmg increase so 11 is okay already don’t add to 12. breeze call dance put it beside your elegant storm and refreshing screw since you will use them together.

  8. mark says:

    thank you so much Kazu ^^

  9. Taeyeon says:

    Do we need the critical probability skill plate if we have attain the max critical for our character?

  10. confuse says:

    which is more good in pvp?
    spirit dancer or blade dancer?

  11. hudang says:

    kazu, just have a few question.
    what if i plan for 60 skill build, for 60 skill build, its better to get 11 Dusk hunter because of EX, and drop deadly drill? because i used deadly drill mainly for utiliry, not damage..

    and elegant storm, despite its great damage, its too long to cast, and provide a little SA, so in PVE, if i cast it, its often get canceled by boss/i must cancel it with tumble to evade boss attack. so its potential DPS is not reach out..

    also, in 32s cd of elegant storm, i can dish out 3x dusk hunter, if with your damage, elegant storm (476k that got cancel easily) vs dusk hunter (122×3) that easy to cast… (and other note, dusk hunter can benefit from illu dance lvl 8, elegant storm not..

    but, despite my question, its such a great guide!
    thanks for your hardwork.. hope you reply

    • MonkeyDLufit says:

      @hudang we have same idea. XD

      but i skill simulate, you can actually have level 7 Elegance Storm and level 11 Dusk hunter at the same time. buy dropping out Refreshing Screw/Drill(if you purpose only for utility) and minus 1EcsPt3 by 1(same 30%increase HP recov per level and rarely use in 4man PT) and also just level 1 Abolisher since its for utility purpose for me, and not a DPS(low AoE and damage increment per level).

  12. Perez Gelo says:

    hey kazu uhm can you give an ideo for mass pvp skill build like respawn for this class,,:) i’ll truly appreciate it :)

  13. GabMan says:

    Guysss, I’m really having hard time what to chose. I’m planning to make one Dancer and one Screamer. The problem is: What is the class for PVE and for PVP for Dancer and what is the class for PVE and for PVP for Screamer? Thank you for those who will answer! :)

  14. unknown says:

    kazu, I want to ask something.. I’m spirit dancer for PVE build.. for the last 6SP, what if I go to inner fire (3SP) and maxed deadly drill (2SP)??

    Here is my explanation.. the difference between illusion dance lv6 and lv8 :
    lv8 : heal 4% and buff 9sec
    lv6 : heal 3% and buff 8sec
    **since the attack damage is not so different, we can skip the calculation of damage**

    with the deadly drill damage calculation :
    lv8 : 978% + 12233
    lv6 : 923% + 9110

    Please respond to my build.. thx before =)

  15. MC says:

    same as my build, we have the same mind kazu! :D

  16. MC says:

    the only deference is, i max the spirit blow!

  17. SD says:

    Hi kazu, can i ask what is a good item build for Spirit dancer? If i have limited budget, shld i go 5 totem 2 immo, or 4totem 3 immo? thnx alot

  18. Torikoma says:

    Thanks for the hard work kazu. For me,Pure Spirit Dance skills is much stronger. REASON : Try it out, I Won’t tell you!. SD ,If you have Limited budget, try Victor weapon (primary&secondary), 3 immo, 2totem.

  19. SpiritDancer says:

  20. Dragonese says:

    Sumerflame
    Greenwood

  21. wut says:

    Stalker EX (8s CD x 4 = 32s, 105K x 4 = 420K)
    Screw (14s CD x 2 = 28s, 170K x 2 = 340K)
    Storm (32s, 470K)

    Not bad

  22. Ronald says:
