The background of the Nightshade race is set to be the guardians of the Divine Child, who is already an existing character in our game, important but not yet elaborated on. This new race is a nice supplement to support and expand the storyline of PWI. Duskblades and Stormbringers were inspired by the worshiping of the moon, which is a common totem in human history. We found that this was a perfect fit with their roles as the guardians of the Divine Child. They are all empowered by the moon. They look like humans, but behave and fight differently from humans, faster yet still stout. : Wei Zhang, lead developer, PWI

Sabre weapon.

Similar in build to an Assassin, with strength up to about 100, and all the rest in Dexterity. Vitality, as with Assassin, is by player preference.

The most popular build for Duskblades is the same as for all Light-Armor-designed classes (Archers, Assassins and Duskblades): one point of Strength per level, with the rest in Dexterity

Duskblades have the multiple target Area Effect attacks of a Blademaster, and the stun-teleport attacks of an Assassin. They also have some damage reduction. Duskblade's Moon Chant increases skill damage by 15%. They debuff physical damage by 30% also, with Constellation Arc, a single target skill, third in a chain after two Area-Effect skills, which can be a little tricky sometimes.

The normal weapons for Stormbringers and Duskblades can be crafted at only one NPC: Blacksmith Okan in Dawnglory
