Tips and Details

  • When attacking an enemy facing you, this skill will hit their back, allowing it to bypass shielded enemies, as well as Raven's Core Shield.
  • Due to its low MP Cost, Assault Strike is great for resetting Gale Mode on a full Annihilation bar without consuming much of your MP.
    • After unlocking Berserk, it will also be useful at reducing skill cooldowns for a small MP Cost.


  • Contrary to its description, this skill does not actually punch enemies. Instead, Elesis sends out a small blood projectile in front of her hand and causes it to explode a little distance ahead (thus the reason it can hit enemies from behind when used near them).
