Dark Knight unawakened Skills post awakening

Since the awakening will hit the servers in the upcoming week i started to wonder what skill do i need from the unawakened dk?

i would assume you want all the dashes maxed out, the passives and maybe wheel of fortune. Is there anything else?

Because it would be good to know if I need to farm some more skillpoints^^ (currently at 58 with around 850 skillpoints)

Some people also still keep shadow bullet as well. It does have nice utility.

I'm only 57 with around 750 points. I maxed out all awakening skills, the passive skill and awakening HP, accuracy maxed. Took all the dashed, maxed wheel of fortune, and the maxed ground smash spell forget the name, grabbed air strike as well. Still have 65 points left not sure what else to take maybe bullet. With our jump backs and forward can't see using nocturne much

Is there a smooth transition from the awakening weapon to the Kriegsmesser? My DK is only 56 atm, and I have more issues with MP than I had pre-awakening. And switching via C is a bit of a pain.

This is good to know. I will do the same. I will max out all the awakening then, and then go back and work on getting the pre-awakening skills. I was wondering how many points it would take to get all the awakening stuff...so then i could go back and start getting the stuff i had before awakening. Thanks. :)

How many "dash" skills do we have? I only use that one with the shift key..lol

I too am still trying to master the MP usage with the awakening. I use W + RMB to enter Awakening and nocturne (quickbar) to leave. feels smoother than using C.

 

As a side note the pre-awakening side dash skill (dusk?) can be used during awakening through one of the skills. This allows a double dash sideways that restores MP.

hot key wheel of fortune and use that to switch weapons. Then you can switch back with w +rmb

I'm not feeling Nocturn tbh, it ist better than switching with C, you’re right. Thanks for the tip with Dusk, never thought about that.

That’s a great tip, I’ll definitely give that a try when I’m home.

 

I still have a few more skill points left than I need for 57. Is anyone still running maxed Corrupting Ground? I always enjoyed the HP/MP reg and the shorter cooldown, but it takes quite a lot of skill points. And Shadow Bullet is mainly for PvP, or does anyone find any use for it in PvE?

for a smooth switch you can use : Nocturne, Wheel of fortune and Lunacy of Vedir ; Any of them slotted.

FYI, my hot keys are set as follow:

  1. Nocturne
  2. Wheel of fortune (you need to have it slotted to be able to switch off awakening)
  3. Lunacy of Vedir
  4. HP pot
  5. Trap of smell (not a priority skill, but don't forget it, it an be strong in pvp)
  6. (after 6, it's not an usefull hot key for me :P )

As priority list you can use:

For awakening: take everything except :

  • AWK auto attack : just wait more points to unlock
  • Leave Hand of Exploitation level1. It's not that good except for a bit of HP regen in PvE (rank 1 do the job ;) )
  • Rush of Despair ; nothing else than a mid ranged filler skill. Not a priority.
  • Hand of resentment. Not a priority at all. Unlock it when you have everything else.

After this, priority order on pre-awakening is:

  1. Dashes : Dusk and MH
  2. W+F
  3. Nocturne / Lunacy of Vedir (switch)
  4. Wheel of Fortune (switch)
  5. Passives
  6. Block/Counter attack
  7. Shadow bullet level 1
  8. Trap level 1
  9. Kamasilvia Slash
  10. Ground corrumption
  11. -------
  12. Finish your awakening skills
  13. what you want between F/F, shadow bullet 2 + air, Shift+E
  14. ...

Not only by quickslot but if you use quickslot you can spam it twice as fast as you would do with normal keybinds.

Thanks for the list. I maxed Corrupting Ground instead of Kamasilva Slash and added Shadow Bullet: Air. Works way better than before.

Yeah I got Corrupting ground for when I need that top off for a heal, prob drop it tho. There's a few ways to generate MP, twilight dash is awesome the F skill just shoot through a bunch of mobs and regen mana, chain dusk regens it, so does a or d+lmb, shift+lbm gives MP back and just lmb. I've been soloing jail without pots and only level 57. Cresents I can fly through now, way faster then my 59 Valk. I haven't even used much of my old skills, just haven't had a need for them. stats are 190/192/269

Ok, I think I am dense. I reset all my skills, max out the awakening ones that I can then go back and max out the pre awakening ones that are possible such as Wheel and the others you recommended. Do I have that correct? I was only trying to add on and didn't have enough points. I have 648 points. 

I think with enough reading I have it in my brain. Thanks for all your posts above.

Happy seeing my build was not so far you all suggest here. i am not so silly i thought :P

 

Btw i have some questions please;

1) i have matter to learning some good skill chain in awak. Do you think would be a good help going to easy spot like bashims and doing only awak skill time they are better in my brain?

2) For PvE grinding, lvl 57, i am short to chaining skills with CD. I do it wrong, or just impossible have anything smooth without non awak skill (i mainly do Wheel => kama slash => back awak). And with more than lvl 57 (little more skill), will i always need non awak skill (i speak for PvE grinding! for PvP... wheel, trap or nocturne are always good to use ^^')

What is the thing about Dusk that you say?  I know you can use dusk and chain dusk for evading left or right twice, but thats pretty basic... care to explain what do you mean?

Prepair to use skill change at 58. You will not have enough points for 58 awakening skill unless you wanna farm low level mobs for points for a few weeks. I have 900 and couldnt even max out Wheel of fortune after all the passives at 58.
