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.

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.




Emblem Thoughts

Moon ---> The best emblem for C1. This is after the patch though. It allows you to ward off base defenders and take care of troops in a base in one shot.

Crescent ---> Similar to Moon, but not as good. It has a large range so you can safely poke other people while base defending to stall them.

Fan ---> A good emblem for C6. After the patch though. A shockwave gets added to the last part of the emblem when you land which also has elemental activation.

Thrust ---> Another good emblem after the emblem update patch is applied. A shockwave gets added to the attack giving you super armor and elemental activation on C6. So it is recommended for C6.

Pierce ---> It may seem good at first on C6. However the slow start up time allows for other players to easily block it, even if you hit them with a full combo beforehand. On C1, it is too weak to be of any use.

Eclipse --> An ok emblem, however it is outclassed by Fan and Thrust on C6.


C3 has hyper armor so use that to your advantage. Musou can do high damage but make sure the opponent does not have musou as they can cancel into their musou if they are being hit. The best way to kill people is to get an attack x2 and target people who have no musou. While they are attacking use your musou and attack x2.

Recommended to use granite belts for I. Rod musou spammers. When you get hit by their musou just stay on their ground and once they finish, activate attack x2 and your musou and you should kill them in one musou. They won't be able to do anything because they have no more musou bar.


Use moon emblem on C1. The moon emblem has high damage to one shot troops with low attack. Don't run too fast or troops will not able to follow you and you can't gather them up.


Perhaps on of the best capture weapons in the game. It's high speed, quick flask upgrades, dash attack, C3 hyper armor, Jump Charge, and emblems are suited to capture make it the perfect weapon for capture. Use a storage flask or ginseng to have a defense upgrade or combo upgrade from the start of the match and rush. Use C3 to get around juggernaut fire. On a level 4 weapon and above, using 4 damage upgrades will allow you to take a tower down in two non-upgraded C3s. Use your C3 on officers and captain bases. Wait for them to recover from the stagger and then use it again. This is so you don't knock them down and waste time. Repeat until they die.

When facing base defenders run around, and when they start chasing you quickly turn around and do your dash attack. Many players will not see it coming and be stunned. Allowing you to continue to focus on taking the base while they recover.
