- Following the required part of her tutorial, the Demon Slayer is already level 10 with his first job advancement complete.
- The Demon Slayer has additional job advancements that can be done at levels 30, 70, and 120.
- There will be a quest for each job advancement in the quest notifier (light bulb) on the left side of your game window when you reach a level when you can do a job advancement.
- The Demon Slayer needs to have a one-handed blunt weapon or one-handed axe equipped in order to perform most of his skills.
- The Demon Slayer has a unique shield called a Demon Aegis. It grows more powerful as he goes through job advancements, and it grants him more points of Dark Force.
- Dark Force doesn’t function completely like MP. You must attack enemies using certain skills in order to drain energy from them to recover your DF.

Rapid click the attack key to slash the same enemy with more damage!

Demon Slayer 1st Job Skill Build: Everything maxed.
1. Add 1 SP into Demon Lash, Grim Scythe.
2. Max Shadow Swiftness, Demon Lash, Battle Pact, HP Boost, Grim Scythe.
In my opinion, training on monsters that only takes 1-2 hits is faster with Demon Slash compared to Grim Scythe. Therefore, I max Grim Scythe last. By the time you reach near level 30, you can use Grim Scythe against mini bosses like Slime King in Kerning Party Quest.
However for training efficiency, get Shadow Swiftness to move around map quickly to reach monster/town. Next boost Demon Slash damage followed by Battle Pact (increases your slashing speed considerably). These 2 alone levels you up faster than Grim Scythe, unless you can find a spot crowded with monster, use Grim Scythe instead.

You will be bumping into monsters especially with Dark Thrust, so max Vengeance to save some health. Chaos Lock isn’t use often since its more effective to clear map with Dark Thrust in a cycle.

Demon Slayer 3rd Job Skill Build: Everything maxed except Vortex of Doom.
1. Max Demon Arch Lash.
2. Add 1 SP into Carrion Breath.
3. Max Fury, Focused Fury and Carrion Breath.
4. Max Insult to Injury, Possessed Aegis and Black-Hearted Strength.
5. Max Raven Storm and Judgement.
6. Dump remaining SP into Vortex of Doom.
You will be using Soul Eater (Demon Slayer 2nd Job Skill) for 3rd Job Training area until you get your Carrion Breath and Insult to Injury. Therefore, to spam Soul Eater often, maxed Max Fury and Focused Fury. Do not max other offensive 3rd Job Skills yet since it consumes way too much Fury at once against cluster of weak monsters.
Upon maxing those skills above, maxed Carrion Breath and Insult to Injury to deal more damage against tougher high health monsters. It is not recommended to use Judgement for training as it uses lots of Fury and deals less damage. Killing monsters instantly with Fury skills using little Fury allows you to spam these skills often and level up faster with effective Fury training.
Monsters also do high damage, so you will need to protect yourself from getting hurt. Proceed with maxing Possessed Aegis and Black Hearted Strength. Personally, I don’t use Judgment and Vorex of Doom much since Dark Thrust is easier to pack monsters into a can of sardines and poison them to death with Carrion Breath. In short, these skills can be upgraded later.
Max Raven of Storm to save some health potions. Less health potions consumed means less visits to the clinic/pharmacy to purchase potions. Once all the essential skills above are maxed, you can max other skills in any order.
