Tips and Details

  • Like Matchless Truth, the skill cannot be cancelled by any non-air skills when used in midair, so if you want to cancel it, be sure to use it on the ground or carry Shadow Blast with you.
  • The blade emission has a larger area of effect than the initial blade rotation.
  • If this skill is used right after a double jump during an air dash, you will slide forward a considerable distance during the skill's activation, which may throw off your aim and reduce the skill's damage on the intended target.
  • The Blade Rotation part of the skill will deal one hit less in Free Training.


  • In the original design, Spell: Ellipse of Blades was called 환영참 (幻影斬).
