Tips and Details

  • While [Enhanced], most targets are unlikely to receive all hits, typically receiving 13 hits or 25 with Useful.
    • Without [Enhanced], this skill has an easier time connecting all 20 hits without Useful.
  • This skill does not drag enemies enough for full hits, regardless of whether it is used on a super armored enemy or a regular enemy. As such, it is best to be used on large enemies for the maximum amount of damage.
  • The skill actually creates two gusts of wind, which can hit enemies separately. Using the skill off a ledge will cause the two gusts to separate, giving the skill much more vertical range at the cost of some damage.

Video Description
Between its initial release and the 07/23/2015 KR Patch, Crescent Cut did not do continuous hits, only consisting of three crescent slashes in sync with Elsword's animation.
