Overview

  • Possesses masterful control over aerial combat and mobility, rivaling Jet Boots.
  • Makes full use of Twin Daggers' deceptively low S-ATK stat by striking hard and striking often, racking up damage quickly with its best Arts.
  • Fairly safe to use due to height advantage and Just Guard/invulnerability on specific Arts.
  • Relies heavily on Tech Arts and Gear Lv. 3 for maximum power.
  • Somewhat more advanced to learn than most weapons.

Weapons with PA 11 Coal Meiner, 13 Nesis Arion
  • Flies towards the target at very high speed, then perform an upward slash that knocks the target into the air.
    • If used while in the ground, will perform a jump first. If used in the air, starts moving instantly.
  • If used on the ground, increases gear by 2.
  • If used in the air, increases gear by 1.
  • Tracks targets in a straight line. If the target moves too fast, it can dodge it.
    • Will track both horizontally and vertically.
    • If there are no valid targets, will go downwards and slightly to the front, aiming towards the ground.
  • Has Just Guard frames at the moment it starts the uppercut animation.

  • Moves towards the target in the same way and speed as the regular version of the PA.
  • While the base attack power of the crafted version is lower than the regular version, if the craft has Power +20% or higher, it will be stronger than the regular version.
  • Unlike regular Raging Waltz and Symphonic Drive, will not move you away from the target after the attack.
  • Once the enemy is hit, directional movement inputs will change the behavior of the PA:
    • No movement: Does nothing and the JA ring occurs instantly.
    • Forwards: Does an uppercut identical to the one used in the regular version of the PA, but doesn't launches enemies upwards.
    • Backwards: Does a backflip that has brief invincibility frames.
    • Sideways: Does a side flip that has brief invincibility frames. If the target is locked on, spins around the target.
  • Due to the fast execution when there's no movement inputs and very fast enemy tracking, it might be suitable for mobbing, easily moving from one target to the next.
  • The versatility and reduced pp cost from the craft can make it a viable competitor to Symphonic Drive, unlike the uncrafted version.

  • Does a fast strike that grabs the target, then launches it upwards, and throws it into the ground.
    • The last strike does aoe damage around the area where the target falls.

  • Increases gear by 1.
  • If the enemy cannot be grabbed, it only does the first hit.
    • Because the first hit is so fast, it may be useful for Tech Arts JA Bonus against such enemies, but there are often better options.
  • Has Just Guard during the first strike.
  • Does 3 hits.

  • Increases animation speed in the air, and aoe radius.
  • Allows for horizontal movement in the air, but because the animation is so fast, movement is very limited.
  • While the power drops drastically, dps may rise if the craft has a high power due to the increase in animation speed.
  • Because the animation is faster, it has less Just Guard frames, but they also have a smaller open window between each of them.

    • The last hit does aoe damage, pushes the targets to the sides, and knocks them down.

Boosting Potential Potential.png Jumping Waltz Weapons with PA 11 Twin Filphuga, Twin Filphleo, 13 Oboro Ver2
  • Flies towards the target, then performs a 2 step kick that throws the target away and launches you slightly upwards and backwards.
    • If used while in the ground, will perform a jump first. If used in the air, starts moving instantly.
    • JA ring appears after the second kick.
    • Hitbox is based on the character's toes. Because of how the animation works (you move forwards when it connects, going "inside" the target if needed to), it is possible to hit weakspots that are currently hidden in some enemies, such as Caterdra'n or Zeshrayda.
    • The second kick will throw enemies away very fast, so it might cause issues with repositioning enemies in party play if you don't kill the target with it. Enemies immune to knockdown will not be launched.
  • Tracks the target, behaving the same way as Raging Waltz, but is much stronger and much slower.
  • If there are no valid targets, will move diagonally forward and downward.
  • Increases gear by 1 after the 2nd hit.
  • Has Just Guard at the moment the first kick hits (after the slight move forwads animation post connect).
  • Does 2 hits.
    • Each hit does 50% of the noted power.

Boosting Potential Potential.png Bloody Flash Weapons with PA 11 Twin Reaping
  • Does 4 slashes, performs a backflip, does a slight charging, then follows with another 3 slashes, generating shockwaves to the front on each slash.
    • Does not actually charge the attack, it's just a delayed animation. Does not benefit from charge related skills.
  • If used on the ground, cannot be cancelled by any means.
  • If used in the air, can be cancelled by using the Weapon Action.
  • Has the highest range both frontal and to the sides of any Twin Daggers PA.
  • Has Just Guard during each of the initial 4 slashes, and then from the start of the charging animation to the end of the PA.
  • Useful for mobbing, but has very poor DPS and DPP, so should be avoided when fighting bosses.

Boosting Potential Potential.png Lunatic Slasher Weapons with PA 12 Sigma Janga
  • Does a quick short range slash, then follows with 5 attacks, and finishes by instantly moving towards the target and doing a final uppercut.
    • The initial slash behaves for all intents and purposes as a basic attack. As such, the L / TD Air Chase ring works with this initial slash, effectively increasing its range if the target is locked on.
  • If the first slash does not hit a valid target, the PA fails and does nothing else, simply wasting the PP.
  • If the first slash connects to a valid target, does 5 slashes with a flashing animation where the character disappears.
  • After the 5 follow up slashes are done, instantly moves towards the current target, even if it is not the same as the original target of the first slash.
  • Increases gear by 1 after the final uppercut.
  • Provides iframes that last from the end of the first slash until the start of the uppercut.
    • This is one of the only two Twin Daggers PA that offers iframes instead of Just Guard, the other being Raging Waltz Type-0. However, this one is a lot more reliable.
  • Does 7 hits.
    • The first slash does 12% of the noted power, each of the follow up slash does 13%, and the final uppercut does 23%.
  • Although the damage per hit is very good, the animation is slow, causing DPS to suffer. The 30 PP cost is also very prohibitive.
    • As such, this PA shouldn't be used for direct damage but, instead, for dodging long and/or multihit attacks that would be hard to avoid with just Weapon Action, while still dealing damage to the target. It can also be used to avoid attacks that ignore Just Guard.
    • Do keep in mind that the iframes only start after the first slash connects, so it's not instant.

Boosting Potential - Weapons with PA -
  • Dives straight towards the ground, slashing anything in the way until reaching the ground, then finishes with an extra 2 hits.
    • Does multiple instances of damage during the fall, raising its potential damage if used on a large enemy from a high altitude, allowing for multiple hits.
    • When reaching the ground, does 2 hits instantly.
  • If used on the ground, will first do a small jump before falling back into the ground.
    • Doing this increases gear by 1 during the jump.
  • The Just Attack ring appears during the entire falling animation, and stays until the end of the entire PA. However, making use of this JA ring before reaching the ground will cause the fast 2 final hits to not be used.
  • Does 33% of the noted power per hit.
    • Does a minimum of 3 hits (1 from the fall, 2 from the landing) if it is not cancelled early (either by Weapon Action or making use of the early Just Attack ring).
  • While this PA normally causes the loss of all gear (due to reaching the ground), if it is followed by any other PA before the JA ring disappears, gear is not lost. Quick March is a good follow up, as it allows you to gain some altitude back.
  • Has Just Guard for the entire falling animation.
