Notes & Information

  • This battle skill now consume stamina (tested on patch 1.03).
  • The animation was made significantly faster in patch 1.08.
  • Provides a surprisingly great amount of hyper armor, so it can successfully trade with smaller weapons such as Straight Swords, Axes, Daggers, Fists, and even a greatsword two-handed regular attack.
  • As the description says, if hit just right it will function as a headshot, stunning the opponent for a short time allowing for extra follow-ups.

      Not really good09 Jun 2016 06:35  

      Tested it against the respawning zombies at cleansing chapel.<br/>If you miss the head, you deal around as much damage as a non charged 2H R2.<br/>If you hit it (if you're at the correct distance for the sweet spot), you'll deal around 1,5x the damage and stagger the enemy.<br/><br/>A fully charged 2HR2, which takes around as long as that weapon art, deal 2x the damage, if you're NOT at the sweet spot.<br/><br/>It might be usefull if you're against an enemy that doesn't get staggered by a 2HR2. Otherwise, it's just for fashion...

        Type of damage03 May 2016 11:43  

        It does good damage against the Hollow Cage enemy of the Undead Settlement, making me believe it either goes through defense or does some other damage type.
