Notes & Tips
- This skill does 40 poise damage, 10 for each magical sword.
- Unlike its spell counterpart, this variant of Glintblade Phalanx deals substantial damage to an enemy's stance; assuming all four swords land on the desired target, most enemies' stance can be broken with merely one or two casts.
- Also unlike Glintblade Phalanx spell counterpart, the caster gets rooted in place for the duration of the cast animation.
- You can manipulate the projectiles in a way to change your desired enemy. There are 2 ways:
1) Move your camera in another direction (not comfortable as you can barely see your enemies and surrounding area).
2) Simply make your character face another direction.
