  • Stagger - Enemy weapon gets pushed up in the air and they lean backwards. Hitting them before they can fully recover will cause them to be juggled.

  • Knockback - Sends the enemy backwards away from you. Usually ending a combo.
  • Launch - Knocks the enemy up in the air setting them up for a juggle.
  • Rotation Lock - Inability to turn your character during the animation.
  • Element - If weapon is imbued with an orb or element, the element can be activated on this attack.
  • SA - Super Armor status. Cannot be flinched by normal attacks while performing this. Indicated by little swirly sparks around your body.
  • "O" indicates the attack has this effect on the enemy. "X" means this attack does not have elemental activation.

This table lists the musou stat and how much musou is needed to increase the number of hits in your musou. (Assuming you use the full bar when you musou.) Do note that the musou stat values here may not necessarily be the lowest threshold needed on the musou stat to increase the number of musou hits. It's just a guaranteed stat that has been tested.

  • D = Dash attack, N# = Normal attack, E# = Evolution attack, JN = Jump Normal, JC = Jump Charge, C# = Charge attack, True = True Musou.
  • What do these values mean? They determine how much damage you do per swing. Refer to the Battle Mechanics page for more details.
  • The N in the values represents each hit in multi-hit attacks such as jump charges, C3s, and Musous. The final number is usually the knockback finisher of the combo(if it has one).
  • "Base" represents the damage value of the attack by itself. The "Combo" damage value represents the total sum if you had connected with the all previous attack strings. (So C3 combo value is the total value of N1+N2+C3 values)
  • E8 always causes the enemy to be juggled often causing the E9 hit to do 50% damage. The value that is written in the table is the estimated value that E9 would cause if the enemy was not being juggled.

?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? Insert your own build here. Just add a new row. Keep description short.

Note: Builds listed here are the number of stars you should put in each stat. The order goes: Attack, Damage, Defense, Life, Musou. So a build of "43320" means to put: 4 stars in attack, 3 stars in damage, 3 stars in Defense, 2 stars in Life, and 0 stars in Musou. For paired up modes a circle denotes which mode the build is specified for.


The majesty skill is interesting in that depending on your life, your attack, defense, and damage will increase or decrease in proportion. Refer to the chart below:


The relationship between life and multipliers for Majesty Advanced Skill.

The formula for majesty is: 1 + [(Current HP - 50) *0.0025]

At 450 life, the multiplier for attack, defense, and damage will max out at x2. Increasing life beyond 450 will not boost the majesty skill in anyway.

At 350 life, the multiplier for attack, defense, and damage will be 1.75.

At 250 life, the multiplier for attack, defense, and damage will be 1.50.

At 50 life, the multiplier for attack, defense, and damage will be 1. You won't receive any boost from using majesty.

Below 50 life, your stats will actually receive a small penalty if you use majesty.

In order to make use of Majesty you should temper Life and wear Feather Amulet. Make sure to keep your health high too. As it depends on current health and not max health.
