Tips and Details

  • The summon is affected by party buffs.
  • Bleed inflicted by Surface Cutting will do 75% average attack damage per second at 1 stack. Additional stacks will increase the damage by 90% per stack. Bleed caps at 3 stacks and lasts for 5 seconds.
  • After casting this skill, you can continue to move/attack freely.
  • Oberon does not take any hitstun from attacks. In PvP, it will also not cause any hitstun itself, however.
    • Players may opt to intentionally get hit by Oberon since it increases their MP without the danger of hitstun.
  • Similar to other summoning skills, the stats of Oberon depends on the user's stats and active buffs when it was summoned.
  • The Combo Attack part of this skill is not affected by Cheat Code: Rule Breaker's Summon Damage Increase.
  • Oberon's Consecutive Slashes will deal an extra hit in Free Training.
