How to create a Dual Blade

To create one, choose the 'Dual Blade' option in the Character Creation screen. Dual Blades have their own separate creation button like Cannoneer and Pathfinder. As well, they have a different story than regular Explorers but are part of the same class group

Dark Sight

Referenced from Nox and Fatalyz

Dark Sight can only ignore falling debris such as from bosses like Magnus meteors, Pierre hats, Vellum rocks, Papulatus falling clocks, and Lotus demolishers. There are several %Max HP attacks that can be ignored, for example, Magnus spin attack, Crimson Queen's DoT flame, and Damien falling yellow/red meteors

Other attacks that can be avoided include, Gollux reverse key bomb (debuff still applies but no damage or stun is taken) and Magnus stun smoke Most non-debris one-shots cannot be avoided. For example, Vellum's tail attack and head pop, Von Bon's orb projectile and Crimson Queen's flame breath

All direct endgame boss attacks such as Lotus, Damien, Lucid and Will are unavoidable
