Best Skills for Dual Blades

Fire, Water, Thunder, Ice, Dragon Attack.
Elemental skills are vital to the DB. They can maximize the damage dealt by elemental skills so increasing the elemental damage of your weapons is a must.
Critical Element
Amplifying elemental damage is the next step to increasing your damage output as an elemental DB player. Critical Element is similar to Critical Boost for elemental attacks and having it is near critical especially for the end game if playing elemental DB
Critical Eye
More damage and Critical Element is also reliant on affinity so make sure to raise your affinity when playing DB.
Weakness Exploit
50% affinity when striking enemy weak spots at max rank is extremely valuable for a weapon that likes to deal damage.
Blast Attack
Having Blast Attack greatly amps up the damage of blast type dual blades. It's a great skill to have if you don't wish to play elemental dual blades.
Evade Window
Allows you to dodge enemy attacks more easily. At the hands of an expert, a dual blade user with Evade Window is nearly untouchable and it opens up new ways to approach enemy attacks.
Attack Boost
Attack Boost is a lesser priority as most of the Dual Blade's damage comes from elemental attacks. It's a great skill but make sure to increase your affinity first and get the necessary damage skills.
Marathon Runner
Longer demon mode duration is always great.
Stamina Surge
Quickly replenish your stamina after using Demon Mode.
A great skill to have as it allows you to dodge even while in Demon Mode with ease.
Protective Polish
A neat skill to have for Dual Blades as the Dual Blade's sharpness rapidly decreases due to its fast attacking nature.
Razor Sharp
Same reason as Protective Polish but it doesn't need a whetstone to use in exchange of half effectivity.
Flinch Free
A must have skill for multiplayer. It's placed lower as a needed skill since the Dual Blades' attacks doesn't get interrupted once used.
Critical Boost
Raw damage isn't the strongest point of the Dual Blades so putting Critical boost on DB isn't as effective as the other weapons.
Evade Extender
Longer dashes means you can get out of harms way more easily or reach enemy weakspots.
