but you could still use normal BK for +20% dmg debuff while spamming AC ED in your rotation
and AC ED animation is faster and safer than AC BK
the dmg of DSK is not that high so sometimes i just use it for utility (to rise up to the air, followed by either air pounce for another AC ED or tiptops to escape)
I will have to agree with you that AC ED is indeed faster, but I have to disagree with it being safer.
being "Safe" is subjective, so I respect your point of view but for me, AC BK is much more safer to cast than AC ED.
AC BK is ranged, thus you will be able to cast it at a distance sacrificing the 30% flip kick, for safety. AC ED on the other hand requires you to be near the opponent.
I also find AC BK efficient than other AC Skills because of, again, its range and being linear. Most mechanics, you will be able to burst 2 AC BKs consecutively when needed.

- RuDN Stage 1 those bulldog part
Personally, a problem I just recently realized with ED is that it is risky, in a way that it descends down. Windwalkers, in my view, should always ascend up and maintain airborne as much as possible. Being grounded, even for a few seconds, is a risk esp. when close to mobs/bosses.
I will chose to burst AC RS than AC ED at times because it ascends upward.
Eagle Dive is my favorite WW Skill, I tried to advocate it before during that Awakening period, however on the discussion on the Acrobat thread (check the link on the first post), It was agreed that AC BK should be the priority.
PS: I most times get mistaken as a sub of yours as our IGN is close.
