      I found this better in terme of damage than Charge. Too bad (or not ?) it is a rare WA and only for shorter spears.

        mail breaker has the fastest of all the versions and combos into itself
        the spears have very large hitboxes but are slowest
        the rapiers dont really get either benefit, but having shield piercing is still cool regardless,
        darkdrift has essentially the same weapon art and is great for pseudo combos

          Best weapon skill for shield huggers. Especially people who try to parry as the parry frames for this move-set are crazy high.

            I think shield splitter is bugged, from the description I assume that it ignores shields and does full damage but I find that is rarely the case and it just hits hard when shields are down.
