    • Inputting the strong attack button will make the user perform a thrust that covers a fair amount of distance in a single direction.

    • The spell version of this Weapon Skill does not have this stance damage property.

      I'm just going to put this out here, because people need to understand that putting this on a katana means you can deal 60 stance damage. That's enough to break plenty of bosses' stances in one hit, and nearly all of them in two. Not to mention it looks kind of funny to wave the nagakiba over your head.

        You know, if you have a tanky mimic tear, this can be a pretty good skill to spam. Keeps most bosses stunlocked and allows the mimic tear to self heal with either raw meat dumplings or prayerful strike great stars.

          Damage type on the thrust forward? And how does it scale

          Does affinity chosen affect the damage of the Phalanx, or only weapon upgrade and intelligence? (if weapon upg and int is the same, does keen or heavy affinity will have the phalanx do same damage as magic affinity?)

            Glintblade Phalanx has always been a great AoW, being a strict upgrade over the spell version in usefulness thanks to the high stagger.

            However, today 1.0.8 nerfed Flame of the Redmanes to 10 stagger damage, making this even better as its now a potential replacement for those who were using FotR for a stagger build. It only requires a little more effort, namely beating Godrick as opposed to rushing Caelid, but it's arguably an easier task for those not willing to deal with Caelids brand of nonsense.

              Does the Beastman Curved Sword has slightly higher follow-up stance damage comparing with other curved swords? Given it has different jumping attack move and stance damage. Thank you.

              • Since Glintblade Phalanx has a habit of copying strange effects from weapon buff magic, I decided to try combo-ing Unseen Blade with this. Invisible Glintblades would be cool as heck.

                Glintblade Phalanx is unaffected by Unseen Blade

                  Why not fuse all these pages with their respective AoW pages? I don!t see the point in having 2 different pages for basically the same.

                    Anybody know if this scales with the Weapon Damage itself or just the magic damage? Or even just int? Curious how I can align my stats.
