Tips and Details

  • This skill is heavily affected by attack speed, drastically reducing its hit count at higher amounts. With 0% attack speed, the maximum hit count is 8, while at 20% it drops down to just 6 hits, and further with more attack speed.
  • The double attack chance stacks with other equipment/set effects/Random Mission that gives double attack chance.
  • While the buff is active, a dark aura will surround Elesis' claymore.
    • The border of the aura changes from red to a deep pink color when re-using the skill.
  • This skill works extremely well combined with Actives like Dark Wave, as well as      combo, due to the large number of hits.



  • This is the only Sword Aura skill that is not a Bravery or Hyper Active skill, instead being Tenacity.
