Tips and Details

  •  Enemy DebuffBleedEnemy DebuffBleed inflicted by Critical Dive will deal 50% average attack damage per second at 1 stack. Additional stacks will increase the damage by 60% each. Bleed can be stacked up to 3 times and lasts for 5 seconds.
  • As the hitbox is based on your sword, Sword of Victory will significantly increase its reach, allowing it to hit a platform above and below, as well as enemies further ahead, and even extends very slightly into the foreground and background.
    • This is even more noticeable for the second attack, as Elesis swings her sword in a small arc around her. Normally, this just lets you hit enemies slightly behind you, but if Sword of Victory is active, it gains a very significant reach, extending rather far behind you as well as significantly into the foreground and background.
