Energy Overflow Soulfist Lost Ark Build

Energy Overflow Soulfist Lost Ark Build

A DPS built that focuses in increases swiftness making it a very mobile and versatile setup

 Energy Overflow Soulfist
PvE Raiding Build
for Lost Ark

Last Update: 1st June 2022



Soulfist is a versatile fighter that can dish out multiple fast-paced melee attacks, disengage to continue the fight with a barrage of ranged abilities, and then finish the enemy off with apocalyptic levels of burst damage. Mastering this versatility, however, is a rather hard job as She is one of the most complicated classes to play in the game. Soulfist has two different Raiding builds, based on Her Class Engravings: Robust SpiritRobust Spirit and Energy OverflowEnergy Overflow. The following build focuses on the latter. 

Energy Overflow Soulfist is a very dynamic build that focuses on high Swiftness. It is capable of spamming its Skills non-stop and burying the opposition under a flurry of blows as a result. Energy OverflowEnergy Overflow Engraving provides a damage bonus when Soulfist's identity gauge is below its 30% capacity, so the build revolves around keeping the Identity Gauge at below 30% while maximizing the DPS - this comes down to spamming the skills as much as possible. As a result, it deals high consistent Damage but lacks burst (especially when compared to the Robust SpiritRobust Spirit-based variant).

Stat Priority

Swiftness all the way - You should have it on all of your accessories to maximize your combat capabilities. With high Swiftness, you'll be able to spam your skills like there's no tomorrow which, in turn, will allow you to keep your Identity Gauge at below 30% capacity. You should also have Crit as a secondary stat on your Necklace to boost your DPS a bit more. Don't bother with Specialization as it has close to no value for the build. 




Soulfist quickly strikes the ground where she stands with her palm 2 times, dealing moderate amounts of damage. Then she strikes again with the other palm to inflict another (stronger) hit. The first strike instantly slams airborne enemies onto the ground, dealing 50% increased Damage to them. 

This is a very dynamic skill (it deals its damage very quickly) that offers high Stagger and Weak Point damage. It's your main tool for dealing with Stagger checks.

  • Stagger: Mid 
  • Attack Type: Back Attack

  • Super Armor: Paralysis Immunity

Soulfist drops a massive palm at the target location, dealing high amounts of damage. This Skill deals  30% increased Damage to enemies who are in the air or down on the ground. 

This is one of your most powerful regular offensive skills. It will help you keep your Energy levels low thanks to the Hard HitterHard Hitter Tripod. You should have your JudgementJudgement Rune as it works well with HEAVENLY SQUASHHeavenly Squash's multi-hit. 

  • Stagger: Low

Soulfist rotates her arms, then she stomps the ground in a controlled manner, sending forth a shockwave. All party members within 24 meters radius receive 12% less damage for 6 seconds.

Soulfist darts forward and trips enemies to deal moderate amounts of damage. Then, She advances 3 meters forward to crash into enemies, knocking them back and dealing another damaging hit. 

This is your Team Synergy Skill (thanks to the Fighting Spirit EnhancementFighting Spirit Enhancement) that will also serve as your Counter Skill and a mobility tool when needed. It has a very low cooldown which, combined with your high Swiftness should lead to 100% uptime on the buff. 

  • Weak Point: Level 2

  • Attack Type: Back Attack 
  • Super Armor: Paralysis Immunity 
  • Counter: Yes

This Skill can be used again for additional 2 dashes. Each additional dash performed increases the skill's Cooldown and Energy consumption.

Soulfist gathers energy and shoots an energy ray forward. If you hold the skill hotkey, She will hit enemies up to 5 times, dealing very high amounts of damage over up to 1.5 seconds.

This should be your Awakening Skill of choice as it's not as Specialization-reliant as World DecimationWorld Decimation

  • Stagger: High 
  • Super Armor: Push Immunity, Debuff Immunity 


Rotations/Skill Usage

Energy Overflow Soulfist's rotation revolves around efficiently utilizing her Attack Power buffs. 

  • Flash StepFlash Step's self-buff can be stacked up to 3 times, you should take advantage of this. 
  • Flash StepFlash Step is also your mobility Skill. 
  • Energy ReleaseEnergy Release also offers a very powerful Attack Power buff. Use it when Flash StepFlash Step's Buff runs out as your Buffs don't stack
  • Bolting CrashBolting Crash is your Counter Skill. 
  • Staying on HypeHype Level 2 is the most beneficial. You should go into HypeHype Level 3 only before using your Awakening Skill. Other than that, don't bother about HypeHype management and try to stay below 30% Energy. 

Her basic Rotation looks as follows: 

  1. Use Flash StepFlash Step 3 times to stack its Attack Power Buff. This will also burn all your excess Energy and allow you to keep it below 30% very easily. 
  2. Use Bolting CrashBolting Crash 
  3. Use Energy ReleaseEnergy Release to self-buff yourself with additional Attack Power 
  4. Use Merciless Pummel Merciless Pummel 
  5. Use Force OrbForce Orb 
  6. Use Heavenly Squash Heavenly Squash 
  7. Use Tempest Blast Tempest Blast 


Recommended Engravings

  1. Energy OverflowEnergy Overflow (Class Engraving) - Energy does not go below 1, but the additional Energy Recovery effect is not applied during Hype. If Energy is below 30%, Your Damage to Enemies is increased by (Level 1: 5%, Level 2: 10%, Level 3: 15%). 

This is the core Engraving of the build. It will increase your DPS by up to 15% if you keep your Energy below 30%, which is very easy to do. You should have this at Level 1 initially and focus on developing your other Engravings as they provide larger bonuses. When they are at their desired levels, bump this up to Level 3. 

  1. AdrenalineAdrenaline - When using skills other than mobile and basic attacks, attack power increases by (Lv. 1: 0.3%, Lv. 2: 0.6%, Lv. 3: 1%) for 6 seconds (stacks up to 6), and when this effect reaches its maximum stack, critical hit rate increases by an additional (Lv. 1: 5%, Lv. 2: 10%, Lv. 3: 15%). This effect is applied after the skill ends if the cooldown time reduction due to skill cancellation is applied. 

This is the first Engraving that comes to mind when building an Energy Overflow Soulfist as she boasts very high Swiftness and can spam her skills like no other. You can keep Adrenaline stacked up extremely easily with this build, which means that you'll have increased Crit Rate and Attack Power at all times. 

  1. GrudgeGrudge - Increases your Damage Dealt to Bosses (Level 1: +4%, Level 2: +10%, Level 3: +20%), but makes you take 20% more damage from them. 

Grudge is one of the most powerful offensive Engravings, but it comes with a severe drawback that may get you killed. If you can live with the increased incoming pain, it will serve you as an unconditional damage increase. If you can exploit Soulfist's incredible mobility, GrudgeGrudge's downside should not pose much of a threat to you. If you're still learning mechanics, you'll be better off skipping it, however. Also, remember that it's only worth using at Level 3, so never use it at level 2 and especially 1 (unless you want to take 5% more damage for every 1% increase in your own DPS). 

  1. Cursed DollCursed Doll - Increases Attack Power at the cost of reduced 25% Healing Received (does not affect natural Health recovery (Level 1 - +3% Attack Power, Level 2 - 8% Attack Power, Level 3 - +16% Attack Power).

This Engraving can boost your offensive power rather significantly, but the tradeoff is painful. Only pick it if you know encounter mechanics very well; If you lack experience, skip it. The deal here is the same as with GrudgeGrudge - if you can use Soulfist's mobility to avoid being hit, Cursed DollCursed Doll will serve you well. Also, using this at Levels 1 and 2 is not worth the risks involved (so, use it at Level 3 or don't use it at all). 

  1. Keen Blunt Weapon Keen Blunt Weapon - Increases your Crit Damage (Level 1: +10%, Level 2: +25%, Level 3: +50%) but also gives your attacks a chance to deal 20% Reduced Damage. 

The more Crit Rate you have, the more powerful this Engraving becomes. This becomes quite strong in the End Game, where you naturally have more Crit. 

  1. Raid CaptainRaid Captain - Increases Damage Dealt by a percentage (Level 1: +10%, Level 2: +22%, Level 3: +45%) of basic Move Speed Bonus. 

This Engraving is a natural fit for the Energy Overflow Soulfists as she is Swiftness-centered and Swiftness increases Move Speed. 

  1. Precise DaggerPrecise Dagger  - Increases critical hit rate by (Level 1: 4%, Level 2: 10%, Level 3: 20%), but reduces critical damage by 12%. 

This amazing Engraving makes your Critical Strikes much more consistent. Moreover, it kind of makes up for the lack of Crit stat from accessories (we stack Swiftness) and it's well worth the drawback. Also, it works very well with Keen Blunt Weapon Keen Blunt Weapon


Gear Sets, Gems, Cards, etc.

  • Gear Sets - As a DPS Class, Soulfist wants his set to boost his offensive capabilities as much as possible. Here are the optimal Sets for each Tier: 
    • Tier 1: Seraphic Oath Set (Epic); Boisterous Elemental Set (Legendary)

  • Gems -  With these, you can apply a Cooldown Reduction or Bonus Damage to your Skills. There is a limit of 11 Gems; you should distribute them in the following way: 
    • You should use Cooldown Reduction Gems on the following Skills: ShadowbreakerShadowbreaker, Energy ReleaseEnergy Release, Tempest BlastTempest Blast, Merciless PummelMerciless Pummel, Heavenly SquashHeavenly Squash, Force OrbForce Orb 
    • You should use Attack Gems on the following Skills: ShadowbreakerShadowbreaker, Tempest BlastTempest Blast, Merciless PummelMerciless Pummel, Heavenly SquashHeavenly Squash, Force OrbForce Orb

    • Lostwind Cliff Set - A Full set offers +25% Dark Damage Reduction and +7% Critical Rate. This one is the cheaper of the recommended two.
