As the title above i will share some skill rotation for abyss walker after awakening and some tricks and tips:

So what are abyss walker?
"A caster type assassin aka ninjas that are versatile and can adept into different situations"

Main damage skills:
*Line of darkness
*evil stare/amaterasu
*dark conviction
*night explosion/megumi ultimate wifu
*killing wave
*abyss fangs

What are line of darkness?
A pretty self explanatory skill
User make a dash forward and press special attack button to return back original position, have good damage and pretty much short cd

Amaterasu/evil stare(the stare is so evil)
A simple skill that explode dark burn similar to inquisitor and loli

Night explosion(megumi best wifu)
A skill that deal decent dmg and have suction effect good in crowd control for bunch of mobs

Dark conviction
This is the most dmg skill for abyss walker(after awakening) really good in bossing basically its abyss walker trump card =3.

Killing wave
A dark wave that forms from dark matter moving forward slowly and deal awesome dmg to enemy(especially dragon full hit confirmed)

Abyss claw&fangs
Scratch enemy before spitting fangs at them, this skill fang part is hard to hit but if u manage to get full hit i can only say hmm hmm yeah yeah taste like chicken.

Anyway enough of my gibberish talk lets move on to rotation:

Sanic burst:
Nightfall > special key > killing wave > line of darkness > special key >amaterasu > line of darkness > special key > abyss fangs.

Note: special key is a must to reposition ur self also bfore burst let the nightfall goes wild and remember to use illusion form while burst for the 100% evil stare

100-0 burst:
Nightfall> special key > dark conviction> line of darkness> special key>killing wave> amaterasu> night explosion(remember to do this bfore 10 second before ur dark conviction auto explode)> line of darkness> special key> amaterasu> abyss fangs.

Tips and trick:
*Special key after line of darkness is a must to setup ur next skill...
*illusion mode is a must use for boss fight since it gave u 10% action and movement spd while empowering ur evil stare.
*evil stare(empowered) is a must use skill while in illusion form to max out ur dps.
*Rubicon normal key(for avoiding long animation attack ex:stomp etc2) while special key need to be used while burst since u need to continue ur rotation after avoid an attack ex:swipe etc2)
*plasma burst is a filler skill and can be insta use after u press jump so u will get the iframe and do dmg right after since u are close to the ground.
*use abyss fang after nightfall back tumble will ensure full hit...
*illusion strike change position is a must since u will get additional damage(extra kunai)

Will be updated soon1

hmm my skill slot its pretty simple.... slot 2 i put buff/summon cat/heal/cure/ and outbreak with that 1 new skill i forgot its name... and slot 1 i just put dmg skill include ult.... its better for u to rearrange ur key... my ult on z while my key only until 5 and other i put it on q,f,e etc2 its easier to do rotation since it is close to w,a,s,d

Basic Illusion Strike = 19 hit
Illusion Strike max hit count with side stepping = 19 hit + 19 hit. I think this is not too shabby for long range hitting.

The side stepping is available when you take the awakened Illusion Strike (LV91).

Hi im a pve/pvp person.
I cant decide which one of either shadow focus(evil stare) or plasma burst to max out.

This is my first hybrid build with max shadow focus and shadow clone awakening (some left over SPs put to plasma):
https://dnskillsim.h...--0-00-----0--0

Here is my other build where I maxed plasma and neglected shadow clone awakening:
https://dnskillsim.h...--0-00--------0

I find myself forgetting to use the shadow clone awakening or not using evil stare very much thats why im leaning towards my second build.

But i wanna hear some opinions. thanks!
(note: The lvl 6 assasin skills or essential for my pvp combos.. although i could probably drop piercing start to lvl 1)

u can drop ring strike instead if u wanna take rubicon(if u follow my build of course) since i don't know what kind of build u have so i'll just say this... nope its not worth it to drop plasma burst..... if u wanna take rubicon u can just take heal and cure from LF tree then go full AW.... leave nightfall at lvl 1 since that's the most efficient way to spend ur sp.

Hi I noticed that there are not many proper bringer guides in the forum. As yours is active, could you also compile skill damage of AW skills to allow comparison between Raven and Rippers? This could promote the quality of your guide. Thank you in advance.

Iframe from airborne plasma burst is gone as the dashing part has been removed

Rubicon, on top of being used to dodge should be used to make your transition into plasma burst easier (night explosion rubicon burst for instance)

Lod exi only has half the power of awakened lod, not sure if this is intended but it's making it very weak, one of its use could be mobility, since there is no more need to reset its cd with chakra illusion
Lod exi also doesn't have as much end lag as regular lod, meaning you can follow up with any skill shortly after using it.

Do not use night explosion literally after you cast dark conviction, most of the dmg comes from the balls hitting still, try using it within the duration, before the explosion or when the target is running away, if the target is moving, let dark conviction self detonate and try not to use night explosion.
