The Destroyer

The Destroyers' power comes from their immense physical strength. They wield large axes to deliver fatal blows to their enemy targets. They also enjoy taking advantage of their winning situations, grabbing enemy corpses and tossing them at other foes. Destroyers have great defence, which makes dealing with melee attackers and multiple enemies at once much easier for them. Destroyer bodies were trained to withstand even the harshest attack; they often become the strong root of their allies.

Destroyers are the classic short distance, slow, and heavy hitting tank-fighters. Almost all of their skills are offensive and contain splash damage. With such a powerful and gargantuan weapons, the Destroyers excel at fighting multiple mobs at once, while their grabbing capabilities allow them to leave victims vulnerable to everyone else.


This class has race limitations and can only be played with the Gon.

Resource Mechanic[edit]

In the final release, Destroyers use the same Chi Bar system as other classes.

An empty Rage bar

Pre-release, Destroyers were intended use Rage to call forth their devastating abilities. When a Destroyer lands a simple attack, he/she will gain Rage. They will need a certain amount of Rage in order to call out the more devastating abilities. Once those abilities are used, they will consume the Rage. Unlike the Force Master's Inner Chi (Mana), the Rage bar starts at zero and increases as you attack. The Rage bar will also increase while taking direct damage.

Keep in mind that the name of this resource mechanic is an unofficial translation and may be named something completely different in the other regions' retail versions.


The following list is incomplete and is a WIP. Ability names are also unofficial translations of Blade & Soul's Chinese version; official translations may vary.
