Zenonia 4 Blader Guide: Stat/Skill Builds

Updated on March 25, 2016

The Blader

Zenonia 4 is the fourth of the five Zenonia games. The Blader in Zenonia 4 is your typical fast damaging but fragile character. Its equivalent in the previous installment of the series was the Shadow Hunter. The difference is that the Blader is a tad clumsier and more rigid in his movements. The Shadow Hunter consistently dodged attacks by disappearing and reappearing behind enemies; the Blader doesn’t have this. This, in addition to Zenonia 4’s reduction of auto-aim, makes this class is a bit more difficult to play than before. Don’t get me wrong—the Blader is still tons of fun, with lots of knock-back and copious damage; it just takes some precision and patience.

Stat Build

Pure DEX: Exactly what it sounds like, this build involves pumping all your points into DEX. This maximizes your damage output, but without any CON, you’re very prone to damage. You can compensate for this weakness with titles that increase your CON/health/defense, as well as with good gear.

Hybrid: Adding 1 CON every 2 levels, and the rest into DEX. This ensures that you get enough HP and defense to avoid dying in a few hits. Also, a level 30 skill, Conditioning, passively increases attack per CON, which means you get a decent amount of attack as well.

Tank: Adding every point into CON. This build is sort of like a faster attacking slayer. With the previously mentioned Conditioning skill, you get large amounts of attack, while boosting your innately low HP and defense. The problem is that you miss out on critical damage ratings.

Note: The rationale for increasing DEX instead of STR is that the critical damage and evasion greatly outweigh the attack and defense gain. Since Bladers don’t have much defense, they need much more evade than Slayers, who can simply tank damage. INT isn’t important because Bladers usually don’t need to use much SP.

Skill Build

Here’s a skill build for the Blader up to level 50. After 50, you’ll have a good enough understanding of your skills to finish off your character. Midway down the build, the skills split up into two different paths. Follow the left one as a pure DEX character, or follow the right one as a Hybrid or Tank Blader.

Level
Skill
Levels 2-4
Proficiency (1-3)
Levels 5
Windcutter (1)
Levels 6-9
Proficiency (4-7)
Levels 10-14
Malice (1-5)
Level 15
Dance of Wind (1)
Levels 16-19
Forged Edge (1-4)
Level 20
Invisible Technique (1)
Level 21-24
Forged Edge (5-8)
Level 25
Evasion (1)
Level 26
Cloak of Shadows (1)
Levels 27-28
Dark Shadow (1-2)
Level 29
Shadow Move (1)
Levels 30-36
Dark Shadow (3-9) or Conditioning (1-7)
Levels 37-38
Wrath (1-2) or Conditioning (MAX)
Level 39
Conditioning (1) or Conditioning (MAX)
Level 40-41
Vampiric Aura (1-2)
Level 42
Forged Edge (9)
Levels 43-45
Malice (6-8)
Levels 46-47
Malice (9-MAX) or Wrath (1-2)
Levels 48-50
Wrath (3-5)

After level 50, just continue adding points into all of your passive abilities, except for Conditioning if you’re a Pure DEX build. Add points into your 2 or 3 favorite active skills afterwards. The ones I like the best are Invisible Technique (AOE, lots of damage, and you don’t have to aim at all) and Dance of Sura (damage over time + high DPS = enemies die very quickly).

Tips

  • When fighting bosses, you usually want to have extra control of your movement. This is because, unlike the previous games, the bosses in Zenonia 4 require lots of “strategic” dodging and moving around instead of just tanking all the damage. To do this, don’t spam your attack button; tap it slowly. You'll keep doing your double-swipe-attack, and you won’t randomly lunge forward.
  • Do your special attack by dashing through an enemy (double tap a directional button towards your target). It costs SP but can stun and damage multiple enemies.
  • The Zenoniac title (+10% to all stats) can be very helpful, and easy to get right off the bat. Just put your iPod/iPhone on sleep without closing your game for 20 hours and you’ll get it.
  • Remember to go to the Abyss. It's free for you to go once a day, so there's no downside. You get a lot of Magic/Epic/Rare gear, as well as coupons, which result in even more good gear. It's actually rarer to get gear that isn't useful than gear that is, which is pretty great. You get stronger and richer: it helps a lot.

      Someone who really doesn't like blader but still play it anyway because it's basically like hard mode without the hardmode 5 months ago

      Blader is a goddamn useless piece of shit. His apparently copious knock back only fucking triggers when I specifically don't want it to, like when I'm comboing with invisible technique and every single enemy keeps dodging the most damaging part of my basic combo, the shockwave. I've put every single goddamn point into dex and I get damage yes but not enough stun capability to keep a goddamn lizard from not attacking. Also, the final boss is cancer with this class. Why do you think the guy in the beginning of the game was a fucking blader

      Started a pure con blader yesterday, and have to say it's working out pretty well so far.

      Got it to lvl 34 so far, with all stat points into con. maxed conditioning adds a fair chunk to attack (at max lvl, it adds 150% of your con to attack), so with the 130-odd con I have now, that's about +200 attack.

      Stats currently stand at 1200-something attack, 600-something def, 38%-odd crit chance, and reasonable evade, and a huge life bar.

      Drinking potions doesn't seems to be much of an issue - I've yet to need to buy any, just drinking the odd S or M hp pot from what I pick up off enemy corspes.

      Are equipment are what can be crafted, picked up, or bought in shops - no IAPs required. Boss battles have all been easy so far, never dropping below 50% HP in any (usually same lvl as the boss i'm fighting, or 1-2 lvls above).

      Skills so far are purely passive.

      LazyKid 12 months ago

      I should Recommend to add 2 con per level and the 1 point in dex as you can use conditioning to max out your missing dmg and you get lots of evade/health/def with this build and i recommend to max out your mystirious shadow as your main ace in the hole

      How to beat shaturu

      1st- use a guardian set or better

      2nd-use the best sheathe stones

      3rd-only choose Anyas best stone

      4th-its up to youXD

      5th-use your skill points into passive skills to lessen the damage taken or to highen your damage to shaturu

      6th(and the last)-make sure that your active skills are at least 5 points so that you will easily kill him thx XD

      Summon ur shadows and let them kill the boss, also the sacrifice skill might be as useful

      If you still can't beat it, go pvp and find a better equips (note that equipment and ornaments from pvp have higher base stat than the regular one)

      andrewx1334 4 years ago

      @ marco : from pvp (little drop rate) or u can craft it by purchasing the recipe from item merchant

      For blader skills :

      Passives : The most important passives are conditioning (for hybrid), forged edge, proficiency (others such as evasion, shadow move, malice, wrath, etc arent really as useful; u can get high crit dmg, crit rate, evasion, and even dex from sheathe stones by using 2 lv 99 epic items)

      Buffs : Sacrifice (the one that doubles ur dmg)

      Actives : Mysterious Shadow (lv 10), Windcutter (lv 10), Invisible Technique (lv 10), Dance of Sura (lv 10)

      that's all important skills, spent ur remaining skill points in other actives/buffs/passives (for passives i would recommend to invent ur remaining skill points in shadow move and the other that increases ur crit dmg; others such as malice and evasion are pretty bad since both of them only give u 10.0 evasion and 10.0 crit rate)

      Query...in every 5 lvls I throw a point in CON and the rest in DEX

      Should i follow the pure DEX build but add like 2 or 3 points in Conditioning?

      Also i have a skill stone tht absorbs 5% of my DMG into HP by 50 seconds...should i still use Vampiric Aura? And if i do should i put 1 or 2 points?

    • profile image

      Xeeoph 5 years ago

      Throw one stat point into Mysterious Shadow and every single boss fight becomes at least twice as fast/easy. Face toward the target and use the skill, and expect a large chunk of the target's health to disappear in seconds. If you are going pure DEX, then you can forgo the 10 points in the +3 DEX skill because 30 of about 350 is minuscule, which lets you get level 10 Mysterious Shadow, five shadows that attack the target for 14 seconds at 100% power, which similar in damage to the player standing in place whacking away at the target for 30 sec or so.

      @Baiko

      for the final boss: first of all, you need to take down all four legs as fast as you can before you can atk the head, and its only a matter of time before the legs regenerate. watch out for the beam atks, as i mentioned above, and save your skills for the head

    • profile image

      jswag42 5 years ago

      @Rexy he probably hacked...

      @killa975

      the beam atk is just wayyyyy too OP, just run around whenever you c the ground light up below you, and also, DO NOT use dance of sura and invisible technique for the legs, save them for that huge head, because bladers don't usually have much sp (area zero really helps the blader, just fyi)

      when you fight morpice, you have to be careful of his comet atk (that thing one-hits you if you don't move), other than that, theres nothing to be afraid of. you have to run around a little more when he has low hp

    • profile image

      jswag42 5 years ago

      @Lauren leviathan was easy for me idk why, anyway, run around him a lot, and use dance of sura+invisible technique whenever his atk misses, and just continue to do that. watch out when he summons blackholes, even though those aren't going to be that much of a threat, its extra monsters that are out to get you when you least expect it

      @Jakemaster although i havenr used it i would recommend passive skills like evasion and forged edge as well as profficiency because you wont get as much in those stats without a pure dex build

      @tofublader after you go to the pause screen go to status then pvp plus have fun playing im around lvl 50 with two different classes snd i can't put it down
