The Kung Fu Master focuses on dealing two Buy Blade And Soul Gold types of damage: Fire and Wind. 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 these damage types is advantageous in the long run, especially as you get to the endgame dungeons.
While in a party, the Kung Fu Master will generally keep the Boss focused on them, as they are only one of the two classes that can generate threat. That means the Kung Fu Master needs to be at the top of their game when it comes to both timing their counters and their dodge abilities to avoid damage, while still chaining combos to keep the threat level high. Since many of their high damage skills are only activated on certain conditions, Kung Fu Masters rely on coordination with their team members to line up combos. Miss a step and the Kung Fu Master can be momentarily ineffective.
In Arena PvP, the Kung Fu Master has to understand and anticipate their opponents’ moves to react in time. Countering—both with the skill named Counter, and in the tactic—is the Kung Fu Master’s strength. Being able to use their opponent’s power against them, predicting their Blade And Soul Gold actions, and out-maneuvering them highlights a truly skilled Kung Fu Master.
