Usage and Strategies

Melee Esper

Like Psychic Frenzy, Blade Dance is almost always an essential part of the Melee Esper's kit. Thanks to the movement speed bonus and its multiple target nature, the skill can easily be used to damage many enemies at once, kite, or get out of telegraphs with ease.

B-I-N-G-O Synergy

Also like Psychic Frenzy, Blade Dance works fantastically with the AMP B-I-N-G-O. Each tick can crit, so hitting multiple targets at once can build Psi Points at an incredibly fast rate. At higher levels, a player can go from 0 to 5 PP before the channel even stops.

Patches

  • WildStar: Reloaded (29 Sep 2015): Is now a Psi Point consumer.
    Base damage rebalanced to 5.93%
  • The Protogames Initiative (3 Feb 2015): The Tier 8 bonus should no longer persist if Blade Dance is interrupted.
  • Patch 08/27/2014 (27 Aug 2014): Fixed a bug that prevented this from granting Swiftness.
