Unprecedented and formidable, crush your enemies with the Soul fighter
The Soul Fighter is the second hybrid class for Blade & Soul, merging the Frost control abilities of the Force Master with the Kung Fu Master’s reactive and reflexive moves. Each set of skills is tied to an associated stance—Elemental or Kung Fu—and switching between stances is done manually. While not quite as complex as the Kung Fu Master, the Soul Fighter can take dedication and finesse to master.
Kung Fu Stance is the primary, default stance. Like the Kung Fu Master, this stance works best when you can adequately react to your opponent’s moves—this class boasts the greatest number of dashes, counters, and invulnerability skills of any other class in the game. And use of these defensive maneuvers will allow even more powerful abilities to be used.
Elemental Stance has more range-based skills, but with longer cooldowns as a tradeoff. The strength of this stance can be seen when stacking multiple abilities onto hapless opponents, and preventing their escape.
The Soul fighter in Action
The Soul Fighter focuses on dealing two types of damage: Frost and Earth. Not all skills will have an associated elemental damage, but those that do will have their damage increased with the selection of the right items; so building a focus around one of these damage types is advantageous in the long run, especially as you get to the endgame dungeons.
For solo play and questing, it’s easier to stay in Kung Fu Stance for the powerful and quick responses to enemy attacks, switching only to Elemental Stance when the crowd control abilities are required. However, in a party situation, the Soul Fighter will need to juggle both stances to maximize their contribution. Unlike the Kung Fu Masters they borrow some of their martial arts style from, Soul Fighters cannot generate additional threat. Despite that, their defensive abilities make them perfectly suited to solo lesser monsters, while their party members focus on taking down the boss. Soul Fighters also have a dedicated skill for party buffs providing resurrection, healing, or Focus recovery.
In Arena PvP, the Soul Fighter is blessed with choice, as a competent player can choose to focus on either stance to compete. A skilled Soul Fighter player will determine which stance will be the most appropriate for both their opponent’s class, and when it will be advantageous to turn the tide of battle.
Races who can play the Soul fighter class.

Their versatility and never-say-die attitude gives Jin warriors a reputation that few would risk testing in the battlefield.
Physical power and combative skill are treasured among the Gon. They seek to make themselves strong, capable, and able to overcome any challenge, and use their might for the good of others.

However, if you are true, friendships established with Gon are as strong as steel and you would have earned their loyalty for life.
