You can always use Demon’s Wing to glide through the air to reach enemies quickly but for nearby enemies, preferably jump and attack with Double Slash. Next, max Absorb Life to maintain current HP as high as possible. The lower your HP goes, the lower your base damage is. Then, max Release Overload to replenish lost health instantly!

Demon Avenger 2nd Job Skill Build: Everything maxed except Demon Strike (19/20)
1. Add 1 SP into Demon Strike, Bat Swarm.
2. Max Official Rage, Desperado Mastery, Inner Strength, Solid Wall.
3. Cap Demon Strike at Level 19.
4. Max Bat Swarm, Demon Booster.

Explanation:
Demon Avenger’s primary attack will be both Demon Strike and Bat Swarm. Therefore, add 1 SP (Skill Point) into both skills. When you are training in a map that has 2 platform/level, casts Bat Swarm on the first platform, and use Demon Strike to clear the second platform. Level 1 Bat Swarm easily one hit kills (OHKO) or 2HKO enemies enemies that are within your level range. Since Demon Strike isn’t required or dependent by 3rd Job Skill, you can channel 1 SP from Demon Strike into Bat Swarm. You can use Bat Swarm as a secondary attacking skill along with your primary offensive 3rd Job and 4th Job Skills. Also Bat Swarm is useful to clear 2 close by platforms where Demon Strike could not reach.
Before you start maxing your offensive skills, max Official Rage first to boost your damage significantly to allow 1 hit kill with Demon Strike. Since Demon Strike deals multiple attacks per enemy, it offers some damage stability, therefore Desperado Mastery is the second on the list to be maxed. Next, max Inner Strength to boost your physical and magical defense followed by Solid Wall. This reduces damage received from enemy to 1. Don’t max Solid Wall before maxing Inner Strength since its percentage type. You will need high base defense for Solid Wall’s percentage defense boost to work its magic. Cap Demon Strike at Level 19 so you have 1 SP extra to max Bat Swarm. A more efficient method would be adding few SP into Demon Strike to get into OHKO sweet spot and then add the rest to Bat Swarm. Finally, max Desperado Booster last since it only affects the activation delay of Demon Slash and Bat Swarm at this point but will be useful for 3rd and 4th Job Skills.

3. Add 11 SP into Ides Exceed Pain.
4. Max Advanced Absorb Life, Moonlight Slash, Ides Exceed Pain.
5. Max Refract Evil, Inhale Vitality.
6. Dump remaining SP into Shield Charge.

Explanation:
Demon Avenger’s 3rd Job primary attacking skill will be Moonlight Slash. If you are fighting against enemies which could not be killed in 1-2 hits, cluster those enemies with Shield Charge and eliminate all of them in one-go with Moonlight Slash or Inhale Vitality. Level 1 Inhale Vitality is useful for this purpose by dealing high DPS (Damage Per Second) while siphoning health from enemies in exchange of high cooldown. Diabolic Recovery is maxed first to constantly replenish your health every few seconds while you drain enemy health with Absorb Life. This allows to you to maintain max damage without having your health diminish to 70% and below. Add 11 SP into Ides Exceed Pain to reduce the Overload Effect. Why 11 SP? The reduction effect stays the same from Level 1-10 and Level 11-20. Then pump up your damage by maxing Moonlight Slash followed by Advanced Absorb Life to minimize the HP Consumption from primary attacking skill.
