      Most useless Ash of War. Only two katana's can have their ash of war replaced, and their default is Unsheathe already. LOL

      • Anonymous

        I like how this skill can only be used on two weapons in the entire game, and it's also the default skill for BOTH of them.

          People complaining about this doing tons of damage but when we bring up RoB, MV, and Colossal Weapons having the same, probably better damage, everyone starts looooosing their miiiinds....

            imagine a cooler version of this that takes more fp and a little less damage thats like jetstreme sam's bossfight attack where he boosts forward and unsheathes in your face

            • Anonymous

              The L2+R2 seems kind of redundant. Should've been L2+R1 as the unsheathe attack and the L2+R2 could've been the Frayed Blade multi-slash attack.

              • Anonymous

                What accessories would be good to further boost the damage/utility of unsheathe? Would the Carian Filigrede Crest lower the cost by more than a couple fp? The Alexander/Jar Shard talismans to enhance the damage? Ancestral Spirit's Horn to restore fp outside of pvp/boss fights?

                I'm currently high arcane bleed build and looking to swap to katanas and was wondering if it'd be worth it to focus on unsheathe since I don't really enjoy RoB spam.

                  I feel like it should also be to put this on straight swords and maybe curved swords. Not just the 2 katanas that can change their ash of war.

                    I just wish you could still parry with it. But maybe later they'll add another version of unsheath that can do this.

                      Came here to point out that this is actually more dangerous than moonveil. I don’t understand why they gave katanas an option to reaction trade even collosal weapons. Meanwhile they nerfed square off into the ground because it could do so too easily in past titles. 50 vigor and bull goat armor? The katana guy will take two thirds of that in one trade.

                        Yeah, lets give one of fastest and furthest reaching moves a damage of Colossal charged R2. - probably some guy at FromSoft.

                          Players having fun with a weapon????? Nerf it now fromsoft, shame on you for letting this go past the radar.

                            This weapon art most definitely needs a damage nerf takes like half of some guys hp in a single weapon art.

                              Katanas are already stronger than most other lightweight , fast weapons. What they lacked was good poise damage. With this even even most bosses get staggered in 2-4 uses. Don't be fooled by the simplistic ability.

                                This and double slash are sleeper terrible. Disregarding their popular special counterparts, there's cheaper, faster, longer ranged, and harder hitting (all at the same time) normal weapon arts.

                                  In case anybody is wondering what's the point of this Ash of Wat... Imagine a Nagakiba with R2 Unsheathe and extra blood loss/freeze and blood loss. You're welcome.

                                    Makes no sense why you can’t use it on other swords. Having it on curved sword at least would make sense. Hopefully they add more katanas in the next dlc. Maybe an odachi.

                                    • The heavy is just so powerful. I really wanna know exactly how the damage calculation for this Ash is done. Sometimes, I seem to be doing near-chip damage to a boss or enemy, then I use Unsheathe and watch a solid chunk of their healthbar disappear lol. It's honestly slept on.

                                        Can be used to parry if timed right, also does the slash damage. Great for big damage if you time it right.

                                          could anyone test to see if this ash works on the Wakizashi? its a dagger but is able to be powerstanced with katana's apparently

                                            Stance attack info:

                                            Light Attack: Horizontal slash comparable to a regular heavy with focus, and a slightly stronger light without.

                                            Heavy Attack: Vertical slash comparable to fully charged heavy attack with focus, and a slightly less damaging heavy attack without.

                                            Heavy w/ focus can instantly: kill smaller enemies (Like smaller flower enemies guarding larger flower), stance break most enemies (Like swamp pot creatures) and deal insane damage if combined with extra damage from unaware bonus.
