Tips and Details

  • Only the Fragment Damage deals any hitstun.
  • Due to the large amount of hits for a relatively low cost, this skill is helpful in gaining Awakening Charge.
  • The range of the Fragment Rotation hits is about the same as a Z.png attack.
  • The fragments can activate counter attacks, but you will not flinch as you would when you hit a counter normally.
