Passionate prima donna.

With a great sense of rhythm, she is now able to use her body to perform dances that captures everyone's attention. After, the dances began to be enchanted with magic, drawing the hearts of her audience. But because there wasn't much business, she did small shows on stages and at some bars. One day, a wandering minstrel asks to perform with her. Finding that they make a great combination she leaves for a journey full of adventure on the spot.


Rhythm and balance are qualities cultivated by all Archers, however, only the truly talented are allowed to learn the secret steps of the Dancers. These scantily clad seductresses gain the power to influence the minds of allies and enemies alike.

It is said that time slows down when a Dancer starts to move her hips to the sound of some mysterious tune; that those watching may lose control of their bodies and find their magic reserves either greatly improved or gone altogether. Where their male counterparts, the Bards, are more bent on support, Dancers specialize at disruptive maneuvers, which make them an invaluable asset in the War of Emperium.

Supporting with a Bard or Dancer requires a different approach than other classes. Music-based buffs are mostly percentual values, as opposed to the absolute values of Priest buffs, and require careful strategy and positioning, but playing as an Archer should already provide some experience in this respect. Despite their supportive role, one should not forget that Dancers are also capable of dealing good quantities of damage, one of their main advantages over Huntresses is their immense SP pool which allows them to continually use Double Strafe instead of normal attacks, ensuring decent damage output.

To understand how to build a Bard or Dancer, knowledge of all their skills is needed. Dancer and Bard skills are, in comparison to other classes, very stat dependent. In general, there are 2 types of skills for both a Dancer and a Bard; skills which can be sung or danced without a partner of the opposite gender and those where the player needs another Bard or Dancer respectively.


The following skills for this class have been altered. See the corresponding page to find which servers are affected:

5. After passing the quiz, Bijou will send the player to Dance on the stage. At this point one should make sure to equip a Bow and some arrows and then head behind the stage to meet another NPC with a "Waiting Room" chat window above her head. Entering the chatroom will put the player on queue for the trial.

6. The exam is a simple test of movement and quick responses. Hotkeying Arrow Shower or Double Strafe and Attention Concentrate is suggested.

  • Note: there's a poring at the end that has to be killed with a bow. Using Attention Concentrate is optional, even though the NPC will ask for it.

The Dancing pattern is as follows.

  1. Back
  2. Front
  3. Left
  4. Right
  5. Center
  6. Pose (just remain on the tile)
  7. Attention Concentrate
  8. Left
  9. Front
  10. Right (NOT Front, Right as iRO in-game dialogue says!)
  11. Pose (just remain on the tile)
  12. Left, Center, Right, Back
  13. Right
  14. Left, Center, Front, Back
  15. Left, Center, Front, Back
  16. Front
  17. Left
  18. Center
  19. Arrow Shower or Double Strafe

For those future dancers who are having problems with this part of the test: An effective way to pass this exam is to only perform the first and last steps for sequences with more than two steps, rather than hitting all the tiles. For example: instead of doing "Left Center Right Back" one simply goes from Left to Back.

7. Return to the NPC who gave the quiz for the job change to Dancer. She will reward you with either a Line [3] for Job 50, or a Rope [3] for any job level lower than 50.

Note: The iRO Dancer Skill Section is very outdated. Do not be surprised if some of the skill descriptions differ from the website contents (i.e. Invulnerable Siegfried), they have been contrasted with the ingame descriptions and the more up-to-date Korean website.
