Dual Blades Guide

  A great cutting weapon that will let you combo with good power and speed. You can focus on cutting monsters parts or just dealing damage. Because this weapon does not have a shield you will be exposed to monsters attacks and will require some practice. When the monster is immobilized or you see a opening you can go into archdemon mode for even more speed and damage. You can deal many combos in this mode and make short work of tails or other breakables.  



Dual Blades Advantages

  • Deals fast and High Damage if combos connect.
  • "Demon" and "Archdemon" modes can chain combos causing extremely high damage without fear of bouncing off the target.
  • Lengthy and varied upgrades in the Dual Blades Weapon Tree.
  • Certain Duel Blades have a diffrent element or status effect on each blade.


Dual Blades Disadvantages

  • Each attack is low in damage
  • Cannot guard or block - meaning players must roll instead, which cannot be done when mid-combo.
  • Sharpness deterioration is fast
  • Shortest range of all melee weapons.
  • The "Demon" and "Archdemon" modes drain stamina until the player manually stops it.
