Dragon Nest Tempest

Tempest, the 2nd-class advancement (3rd job) of acrobats, is considered as one of the best 1v1 class in the game. Though both class advancements of acrobats excel in 1v1 and combos, tempests are highly specialized, having a silencing skill that ignores invincibility buffs like blocks and parries as well as a passive evasion skill that allows them to hit targets with a skill after evading.

As a general inference, tempests focus on 1v1 DPS while windwalkers are for versatility and chain comboing (showtime).That is why tempests are regarded as the one having a greater DPS among the two. In reality however, acro by itself is a good DPS class, so there's not really much difference among the 3rd jobs other than the skills. In the end it all ends up as a matter of preference. The difference between the two class advancements are listed below:

  • Windwalker - Additional launchers + reduced cooldown of passive kicks (longer combo) as well as improved AoE of skills.
  • Tempest - Significantly improved damage output (higher DPS), especially 1v1

Take note that because of the dual-ultimate system, you can always choose any of the 2nd-class advancement regardless of the ultimate skill you picked.
