Dusk the renegade sorcerer was introduced as the first Orb legend. The high dexterity and strength stats bring out the best capabilities of his pair of weapons, and coupled with a nice set of sigs make him a fearsome opponent.
Dusk stats and best stance
Dusk stats favor strength and dexterity. Both stats are a great fit for his equipment:
The orb and the spear make excellent use of augmented damage and fast recovery time.
Dusk special tactics
The orb and the spear are amazing at creating space and throwing yourself at an opponent. Make use of sLight on the ground with either weapon and you can initiate a number of combos, mainly based on juggling the opponent around.
Taking the advantage can also be done by using the sigs, although they are somewhat lacking in comparison with the incredible base moveset of his weapons.
Playing offstage can be done with the spear or the orb, as both weapons are great at fighting while floating in the air.
The recovery of both weapons is amazing, and they are also well suited to punish enemies that go after you. Make use of the range of the weapons to ensure that your offstage is dangerous to approach.
Edgeguarding can be done efficiently using both weapons. Both dAirs have amazing range to punish any enemy trying to get back to the stage.
Dusk signatures are not incredible, but they will do the job if needed.

Not happy with Dusk but like his weapons?
Dusk Signature Moves and special tactics
Dusk puts his orb in front of him and then slams it upwards with force. This sig will hit 2 times. During the first part of the slam and during the stationary moment where the orb is floating. Useful during edgeguarding situations.
Dusk slams the orb horizontally and follows up with a quick punch. The hitbox is quite distant, and you need to put some space between you and the enemy to hit the sig consistently. Use it in a grounded situation.
Dusk throws the orb diagonally upwards. He then slams it down with great force. Difficult to hit, but can be used in edgeguarding situations.
Dusk stabs upwards with his spear. If an enemy is hit he will twirl it around and throw him diagonally downwards with incredible force. Can be used effectively in edgeguarding situations or to catch a particularly aerial player.
A rapid spear stab. If an enemy is hit Dusk will follow up with a spear vortex that will send an enemy flying horizontally. Useful when fighting an enemy on the ground, and much more reliably than the orb sSig.
Dusk stabs the ground and makes the spear reappear from under the soil. Very situational and difficult to use.
Best Dusk Orb combos and strings
The orb is a string based, medium range weapon.It has great aerial juggle capabilities like scythe and gauntlets, while also having a recovery that can make you travel great diagonal distance. This combination makes them one of the best edgeguarding weapons.
sLight > dLight > gc > nSig
Variation of the standard orb opening. Useful for killing upwards.
sLight > nSig
Use this combo to deal the killing blow by chaining a sLight into an nSig. Clean and simple, can give you the knock out you need.
A very strong edgeguarding tactic, unlike other moves you risk very little while doing this sig.

Best Dusk Spear combos and strings
The spear is a great weapon with important aerial capabilities mostly due to the excellent recovery and sAirs of the weapon. It can be played offensively, searching for gimps and juggling opponents in the air with long range dAirs and sAirs.
sLight > dLight > gc > nSig
A variation of the basic spear combo. Use side strikes and a position manipulation attack to put the enemy in position for a devastating nSig. The hitbox can be quite finicky but if done correctly can result in a knockout.
nLight > chase Dodge> sSig
Move the enemy horizontally with a flurry of stabs and dodge, then follow up with a sSig for a devastating blow. Use it on a grounded opponent.
Same thing as the combo above, but useful when the enemy gets thrown offstage.
