Level 10 

Lost Ark Finish Strike
Finish Strike Skill

Kicking things off with the first recommended skill for early game players, for players typically at level 10, will be just getting to know the hang of things and barely will know that there are certain skills that players need to invest in beforehand. Therefore, gaining as much information as possible is crucial for progress in Lost Ark. 

The first skill in question is Finish Strike, which can be cast by players when they are in PvE or PvP combat. Thrusting it down will cause the ground to shake, and enemies will intake 1178 damage, which is quite high for early-game players. Finish Strike itself has a cooldown on the longer side of 18 seconds, and players need to be at least level 10 to equip and cast the skill.

    • PvE:
      • Rank 1: Launch attacks towards opponents for 5 seconds, dealing 47 damage per second.

Level 20 

Lost Ark Hellblade
Hellblade Skill

Level 20 Skill: Hellblade

The skill in question is Hellblade, which can be cast by the players when they are wielding their melee weapons.

When the perfect parry is achieved, a total of 1872 bonus damage can be dealt with, enough to decimate enemies in combat. 

The MP requirement for casting the skill is 127, which is a bit on the higher side, and it also has a cooldown of 36 seconds. If you are someone who wants to experiment with other classes, such as being a Sharpshooter, then make sure to check out our Lost Ark Sharpshooter Build

The Striker is also another impeccable class, which the player can master after they are done reading our Lost Ark Striker Build!

Level 24 

Lost Ark Berserker Levelling Build
Windblade Skill

Moving right along with the Berserker Leveling Build guide, another impeccable skill that players really should not miss out on, especially when they are aiming to play as a Berserker, is Wind Blade, which makes the player all the more powerful when they are in combat with their foes. 

The wielded weapon can then be swung across the opponent’s, thrusting and slashing through their bodies. The damage output will be high enough, whereby the enemies will probably get obliterated without the need for an excessive effort from the player’s end. Follow through with a final attack that will deal 1032 damage. 

The stagger rating for Windblade is Medium, but it is still pretty useful nonetheless and definitely shouldn’t be looked over. Instead, players are recommended to level 10 this skill to max their damage output.

The MP requirement for the skill is 91, while players need to be at least level 24. There is a cooldown of 20 seconds on Windblade. If being a melee weapon wielder is not to your liking, then you might want to take inspiration from the Lost Ark Gunslinger Build for future classes!

    • Ranks 4 and 5 further increase movement speed to 22.2% and 24.6%, respectively.
  2. Key Point Attack (Tier 2):
    • Increases crit rate when casting Windblade.
    • Rank 1: 30% crit rate increase.
    • Rank 2: 37.0% crit rate increase.
    • Rank 3: 44.0% crit rate increase.
    • Ranks 4 and 5 increase crit rate to 52% and 60%, respectively.
  3. Wind Swift (Tier 3):
    • Launches the player into the air, allowing for attacks while spinning and gliding down.
    • Rank 1: 40% damage output increase.
    • Rank 2: 47% damage output increase.

Strike Transfers energy stored in the body to the wielded greatsword, unleashing a charging attack. Uncharged damage: 850. Fully charged damage: 2124. Stagger rating: High. Requires 127 MP with a cooldown of 36 seconds.
