What type of damage is Scholar?
Scholar uses Melee Damage
Does Scholar have a block?

What is Scholar’s Awakening Weapon?
Unlike other classes, Scholar does not have the typical Succession and Awakening specs. She is similar to the Archer class and has an “Ascension”, allowing her to access Awakening skills and weapon.
For Scholar’s Awakening weapon, she combines her 2 one-handed hammers to create a Sledgehammer, which is a 2-handed hammer.
Main/sub-weapon: Hammers/Gravity Cores
Awakening weapon: Sledgehammer
How does her “Gravity Cores” and “Anti-gravity” mechanic work?
Scholar has a “Gravity Cores” mechanic which allows her to control gravity and ignore any fall damage. Therefore, Scholar does not have a falling animation when jumping/falling from high ground.
In addition, her skills are more powerful the higher her hammer attacks from, meaning that Jump Height buffs can increase your skill damage or AOE size.
Scholar’s passive “Anti-gravity” gives a Jump Height buff for 10 seconds when using the following skills:
- One Small Step, Gravity Field, Gravity Pres, Potential Energy, Hammer Throw
Her sledgehammer (awakening weapon) skills also create alchemic circles, which are used to debuff enemies and buff your allies:
- Defense Nullifying Damage +5 for 10 sec to allies within range on Critical Hits
- All Recovery effects -20% for 10 sec to enemies within range
What are Scholar’s Base Stats?
Thank you to fellow BDO Ambassador Vollkornbeet for providing the screenshots of these skills <3
Total stats gained from passives:
- All Accuracy Rate +5%, All DP +20, Melee AP +20
* Despite the skill description on the Action Reaction Passive stating each level gives +0.5%, the total Accuracy Rate applied is only +5% (not +10%). Thank you to mimori_ in the comment section for bringing this to our attention!
