Swordmen are the most balanced character ingame. The attack dmg of them are greater then bladers but weaker than spearmen. Also the tanking ability of them are greater than spearmen but weaker than bladers. Swordmen are the master of attack speed, they need to rely on attack speed alot. Swordmen as many other characters also need to rely on parties after lvl 60 to be able to lvl effectively. Swordmen cannot solo that great compared to bladers.
A best swordmen build in my opinion:
From lvl 1-6 you will have 5 skill points to add.
Raise your first skill to lvl 5 – Raises your attack dmg by 5%.
From lvl 6-16 you will have 10 skill points to add.
Raise your third skill to 10 – Raises your attack speed by 20%
From lvl 16-17 you will have 1 skill point to add.
Raise your sixth skill to 1 – Im not sure about this but I think something about lowering the dmg you get.
From lvl 17-18 you will have 1 skill point to add.
Raise your second skill to 1 – Raises your evasion by 11%.
From lvl 18-33 you will have 15 points to add.
Max your first skill [max 20] – Raises your attack dmg(strength)
From lvl 33-53 you will have 36 points to add.
Max your seventh skill – You have 25% chance to leech your enemies HP.
From lvl 53-72 you will have 38 points to add.
Max your second skill – Raises your evasion.
From lvl 72-91 you will have 38 points to add.
Max your sixth skill [max lvl 20]
Than there is some point left, add the skill you like.
