Now that you know everything that there is to know about the Backpack Battles Darksaber, you need to learn how to use it properly. Of course, the efficiency and proper utilization of an item can only be done through the perfect build. As mentioned before, the Darksaber is a Dark class of Melee weapon. Naturally, this means creating a completely Dark or Corrupted build is the way to go.

For Armor, without a doubt use the Corrupted Armor, which is crafted by combining the Holy Armor with the Corrupted Crystal for a total cost of 20 (13+7) Gold. The Corrupted Armor makes the Star Holy Items in your inventory Dark and gives you 70 Block at the start of the battle. Not only that, but you also gain a 10% chance for each Star Dark item in your inventory to protect debuff stacks on your opponent from being cleansed and every 3s you cleanse 2 debuff stacks from yourself and inflict them on your opponent. 

For healing, you can invest in two different items of the Dark class, including the Staff of Unhealing and the Heart of Darkness. The Staff of Unhealing is crafted by combining the Demonic Flask with the Magic Staff for a total cost of 18 (8+10) Gold. With the staff, every 2 seconds, you heal for 11 HP. You can also 6 Mana to make healing cause damage to your opponent for 2 seconds. 

As for the Heart of Darkness, it is crafted by combining the Heart Container with the Corrupted Crystal for a total cost of 19 (12+7) Gold. Every 4 seconds, you steal 2 buffs from your opponent, prioritizing Regeneration. Not only that, but each of your Star Dark items in the inventory triggers 20% faster and you can also use 7 Regeneration to gain 80 maximum health, 4 Empowerment and reduce your opponent’s healing by 40%, which can be used once.

For extra corruption, invest in a Strong Demonic Flask, which is crafted by combining the Demonic Flask with the Corrupted Crystal for a total cost of 20 (8+7) Gold. When your opponent drops below 50% of their Health, you consume this potion and steal 0.4 life for each debuff stack that your opponent has. Not only that but for 3s, you reduce your opponent's healing by 30%. 

You can also get yourself a Tim, a Dark Gemstone that you can purchase from the shop for 11 Gold. You can attach Tim to any of the sockets on weapons, armor items or other sockets alongside just adding him to your inventory. When attached to a weapon’s socket, after a hit Tim provides a 50% chance of stealing a random buff from your opponent. 

When attached to an armor item or other socket, you gain a 30% chance to resist a debuff or crit, i.e. do critical damage to your opponent. When just kept in your inventory, when your opponent drops below 30% Health, you heal for 50 HP and gain 5 Empowerment. We would definitely suggest either attaching your Tim to the Darksaber, Corrupter Armor, Heart of Darkness or just keeping it in your inventory. Either way, the gemstone has amazing effects no matter where you attach it or don’t.

Other than these specific items, feel free to mix and match with other Dark class Melee weapons like the Dark Scythe, Pandamonium or Hex Dagger or normal Melee weapons, anything but the Villain Sword. Use other Potions, food items and vice versa to optimize your build however you’d like to support the amazing Backpack Battles Darksaber. The only thing you need to keep in mind is that items in your inventory need to enhance or complement each other’s effects, not hinder or cancel them.

With that, enjoy your time playing with the amazing Backpack Battles Darksaber and create the best build with it to annihilate your opponents during a battle.
