Assessment

Top priority for newbies to unlock and a core Tier III class for almost all players. The CP investment is justified by Miserable Mist alone, but the class is also excellent for every element and nearly every battle due to its other skills, debuff success rate, cooldown reduction, and Dagger proficiency (allowing use of the powerful Four-Sky Blade).

    is one of the strongest skills in the game for both damage and survivability, single-handedly accounting for half of the 50% ATK/DEF Down cap.

    drastically reduce the frequency of foe charge attacks. They can also be used to counter mechanics or triggers where foe charge diamonds fill instantly.
Overall, Dark Fencer is an insane class and a great default choice for most battles. Its only limitations arise when the ATK/DEF Down cap is already reached by other characters or players, or against foes who are outright immune to
