- An agile swordsman, Swashbuckler can avoid damage while dealing damage back.
- It is highly recommended to equip Piercing Blade or Bloodletter, as these weapons maximize attack and give a great chance to apply critical damage to their opponents, mainly in their counterattack.
- Balestra removes all debuffs and DOT effects on Swashbuckler including attack/defense decrease and stun, allowing him to remain in stable condition when used. Use it when he's affected by many harmful effects.
- Several of Swashbuckler's skills increases his dodge, allowing him to avoid damage most of the time. However, he cannot dodge area damage such as Mage's Fireball.
- With Riposte, Swashbuckler is able to deal damage against attackers after dodging an attack. Pairing it up with Bonhomie and having Feint active in battle will increases its efficiency. Another great advantage of this is that it ignores Defy Death passive of monsters.
- All of Swashbuckler's attacks deal physical damage, meaning that enemies with high armor can reduce his damage output (although Piercing Blade will help against this). Be sure to support him with skills that can reduce enemy armor such as Blackguard's Vicious Strike.
- His Dartagnan skin is designed to homage the Three Musketeers while his Inigo skin is meant to go with his hero quote as a reference to Inigo Montoya from "The Princess Bride."
- Swashbuckler fittingly has the highest dodge chance of all heroes: 5% initial, 14% from maxed Bonhomie, 1% from Breastplate of the Beast (the only armor that adds dodge), 15% from Iron Rose, totaling 35% normally. Upon using Feint, he gains an extra 24% (at max), making for a total of 59%.
