Tips and Details

  • Even when counter attack does not make a successful block, Elsword will still swing his swords.
  • Does not counter well with certain attacks.
  • If you look closely when Elsword swings his Swords, you will notice that the second Sword (Conwell) is still inside of its Sheath.
  • Using this when Phantom Sword is active will allow for quick damage against small mobs.
