Burn

Burn Effect.png Being hit by too many fire-based attacks will eventually apply the Burn status abnormality. Guarding fire attacks does not prevent the Burn gauge from rising. While burning, flames are visible on one's body, and will prevent the regeneration of Posture and will gradually damage Vitality for the duration.

Lightning surges through the bodies of those with their feet on the ground, instantly paralyzing them. A secret technique exists to catch lightning in one's blade while in mid-air, and send it back.

Enfeeblement

  • Wait for its effect to run out.

Red-Eyes
