Ok this is my first ever guide and its a long read so please bare with me.
I have a lvl 32 Acrobat on 华北网通一区 CN Dragon nest.
Acobats are not good at doing missions, we do not have alotHP, and we are a melee DPS class.
Most players do not want to party with Acrobats because of this.
In Group PVP we usually get killed pretty fast, But...
If you know what your doing, Acrobats are the king of 1v1 PVP.
If your good at controlling your Acrobat, you would only be subpar compared to other classes,
but if you are VERY GOOD with controlling your Acrobat, you cannot be stopped.
Acrobat is not a easy class to master, We have very low HP, and very low defense,
similar to Mages. But we are not a range class, we have to get up close and personal...
Unlike other Melee DPS class (Mercs, SM, Pallys) we do not have the same HP and DEF as them,
so we cannot clash into battle head on. We must avoid being hit, and evasive at all times.
Acrobat skills are made for 1v1 PVP, for range classes we have skills like tumble, chain tumble, and binding shot to enclose the distance, once we are in close range, we can have our fun.
Usually my combo would be twin shot , kick and shot , spiral kick , revolving hit, airwalk , moonsault kick or eagles descent , then twin shot , multi shot, end it with a circle shot , then repeat.
If you choose to use binding shot first to enclose the distance, then continue with revolving hit , airwalk , moonsault kick or eagles descent , kick and shot m spiral kick , twin shot , then multi shot , and end it with a circle shot .
When confronting a Forceuser, enclose distance ASAP! and do what i said above, a set of skills will most likely finish them, if not, just repeat.
Elemental Lords are a beast, they will glacial wave you and finish you off with a fire wall,
so when you are frozen by the glacial wave, get ready to chain tumble your way as far as possible, then binding shot and give them all you got.
If the opponents not dead, wait for your skills to cool down and repeat,
For mercs, SM, and pallys, do not give them time for their skills to cool down,
once you see them , at a distance twin shot them, try to keep a distance in the beginning, by using twin shot or multishot, once in range kick and shot, if by any chance they stop your attack and hit you, hit space to aerial evade the attack and drop them a eagle descent, or just click left mouse when they hit you in the air for a cancel circle shot, then continue with revolving kick, airwalk, moonsault kick, kick and shot , spiral kick, twin shot, multi shot, and right after your done, chain tumble your way out of there away from danger, wait for your cool down to finish, and repeat.
Mercs and SM hits hard, do not let them use combos, once hit aerial evade or cancel circle shot and get out of harms way, they run faster than you so there is no need in running, make sure they are infront of you at all times. Pallys are very tough to beat, they have thick armors, and alot of HP,
but its not impossible, do not let them combo no matter what, a skilled Pally can hit you continually none stop until you are dead, but good thing we have aerial evasion, and cancel circle shot, get out of there and try again.
the following is a similar skill build to what im using.
Acrobat skills are nothing fancy, but it is very useful if used correctly.
