= KALI SKILL TREE =
Soul Wind (lvl1) - Only good in early levels. not worth investing points into - This skill is good for breaking objects since this got a fair SA break.
Sting Breeze (lvl1) - An early level skill. Not worth investing points in later levels. Leave this at the minimum.
Soul Kiss (lvl1) - If the enemy is downed and you have no other skills ready. Drain their soul out - with a cute sound .
Despair Needle (lvl1) -Darkness Needle should i say (good for pinning downed enemies) - i personally got this to level 1.
Get this if you are going pure pvp build - as this traps enemies for a certain period of time.
Fancy Turn (lvl1)- This is a physical based skill - leave this at 1. ( i personally don't use this skill - trying to save up my skill slots for more important skills.)
Negative Ghost (lvl6) -This skill is only good for pve - i left this at lvl 6 - makes the enemy ignore you. - good for pesky monsters that interrupts your skill casting - note: it's effect is not implemented on normal and ladder pvp
Ghost Kick (lvl1) - I usually use this after executing phantom rage - i got this for evasion purposes. (to cover that extra mile instead of dashing - if it's on cool-down)
Turning Step (lvl5) - Max this skill for evasion purposes .
Puppet Soul (lvl5) -This skill works like urgency trick. The only difference is that it leaves a talisman that eventually explodes. - i got this for evasion purposes. - guess you have to max this out for it's cool down.
Phantom Guard (lvl4) -This increases super armor by 200 and reduces mana consumption by 20% - 16% of damage will be depleted on your mana. - a great buff for a party or nest raid. max this skill out.
Spirit of Genie - Increase major stats = Int, Agi, Str, Vit by 80% in a duration of 7.5 seconds. - stat increase anyone? - max this out. nuff said

Here are the skills that you should take note of and below is my own preference to help us soul eaters dish out damage.
Phantom Claw - This is your good source of DPS as a soul eater. I personally took lvl 11 at first then decided to leave this at lvl 1 after doing some tests. it's up to you if you want to max it.
Chain Claw - This skill launches enemies to the air - a long range magma punch if you are to compare this with the alchemists. you can also use this after using any a claw attack and then right click on your mouse. that is if you want to save skill slots.
Phantom's Rage - Our own version of moon blade dance. This skill has iframe (haven't checked as to how many seconds but it has iframe.) i got this to lvl 6.
Rampage Claw- This skill is perfect for pvp. i personally got this to lvl 7. 50% stun chance is just too tempting. our most reliable source of dps.
Increase Soul- Please leave this at 0 because it drains our hp and we don't have the dark summoners skill that leeches Hp. so for us this is suicide and when i say suicide this is fatal. it drains twice as much hp in pvp. (this is crazy without sadism pleasure - but if you want to craft both weapons to HP then feel free )
Stigma of Curse - I personally got this to level 6 as it shoots 2 papers and it has a knockback effect. A must have for a pvp fanatic. Your enemy doesn't want to be branded. The reason is found below.
Summon Puppet - This is the skill that your enemies hate. max this for evil purposes. In PVP a lot of people will hate you for this.. and in PVE teammates will love you for this skill. What we do is just imprint or brand the target... then... everyone attacks the puppet. [/font]
Beast Spirit - This is one skill that is very hard to utilize in PVP at first i left this at 1 but then decided to take it to level 7. This is a de-buff as well and it does 50% damage per 2 secs. for 12 sec. - You just have to do the right combo to trap the enemy and make this hit.[/font]
Grudge Formation - this skill is our very own "consecration" it does damage - it does provide us super armor if the enemy attacks from the inside or within the barrier - but if the person attacking us is from the outside i.e; paladin - "Holy Relic" then we get interrupted. - i took this to lvl 5 - (this is optional)
Spirit Paper - i personally leveled this to 6 as an ex pre-requisite.- this is a skill that you often use in pvp. curse them with those paper birds. (most of my enemies die because of curse.)
= Soul Eater Skill Tree =
Spectre of Pain - i got this to level 2. this skill does good damage once you land it and if you manage to hit the target 3 times then the spectre explodes and deals massive damage.[/font]
Soul Scream - Hear the Soul Eater ROAR! - this skill reduces the enemies critical resistance by 10% at level 1 and 12.5% at level 2 for 7.5 seconds - and our critical rate increases by 50% at level 1 and 52.5% at level 2.[/font]
Spirit Paper EX - Exploding paper birds - take this skill without thinking twice. [/font]
I will be updating this in a few minutes with the skill build and description.
For my fellow Soul Eaters - Please stay tuned
