Attacks

Normal Stance

This is your Normal Stance where you can attack with your blades without any increase in speed.

Demon Mode

This is a toggled ability that allows the user to enter Demon Mode which causes your attacks to do multiple strikes and have increased speed.

Demon Stance

While in Demon Mode, you will be holding your Dual Blades in a reverse grip while in this stance your stamina is constantly being depleted while your normal strikes become multi attacks.

Dash

While also in the Demon Stance your evade rolls become a Dash that helps you quickly reposition without being slowed down unlike rolling.

Arch-Demon Mode

From Demon Mode when your Demon meter is up and you return to your normal stance, you will instead be in Arch-Demon Mode.

This where your standard attacks are basic combos of the Demon stance but no longer require your stamina as it draws from your Demon meter every time you strike.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Fast attacks
  • Procs status quickly
  • Chain Combo Attacks
