Description

Assault Slash.png
A true fighter must never be caught off guard or show mercy. When an enemy falls, that is the moment to strike! Jump high into the air, and crash down, slashing with your sword. Your mighty strike will leave your enemy begging for mercy.

Details

Mid-Air screenshot of Assault Slash's animation.
Screenshot of Assault Slash's impact.
  • A skill where the user leaps towards a downed enemy and slams their weapon down.
    • The target must be knocked down for the skill to execute.
      • Play Dead also applies to this rule as the target is technically "downed."
      • There is a slight delay before enemies knocked into Deadly are registered as "downed" targets.
    • When there are multiple valid targets (such as from Windmill), the player will use Assault Slash against the current target (which has a reticule).
    • Targets with "Finish" above them are immediately valid targets for Assault Slash, even before they are knocked down.
    • Enemies who are bouncing due to multiple consecutive hits may not be targeted by Assault Slash.
  • Assault Slash can be used with any type of weapon, except for Bows, Crossbows, and Atlatls.
  • Assault Slash has a cooldown of 10 seconds, which occurs upon impact.
  • This skill may be used even while the player is being stunned or knocked down.
  • The skill's range and damage increase with rank.
  • At Rank 9, the skill begins to add Strength.
  • When using Assault Slash with a Lance, the player will land further away from the enemy than normal, while at close range, the player will actually leap backwards in order to land further away.
  • Depending on the timing, a successful hit will either push the enemy back or "bounce" them in place, allowing follow up hits.
    • The distance and duration of the enemy's push-back is weapon-dependent.
    • If the opponent "bounces" in place, attacking them in this state will immediately cause them to retaliate, unless the player is Dual Wielding which results a push-back. Waiting until the opponent "gets up" will cause them to react normally when attacked.
  • Any skill may be used during the recovery animation of Assault Slash, however there will be a short delay before normal attacks can be used or weapons can be changed.
  • Auto Defense (Melee) will reduce the push back of this skill greatly.
    • If the enemy would have bounced, they will instead be able to retaliate immediately.
  • The player is still vulnerable to attack during the skill's animation. However, the skill itself cannot be interrupted; it is always guaranteed to hit the opponent.
  • Assault Slash may be used during the second half of Windmill's animation phase, and during Smash's animation.
  • When used against an enemy behind Barrier Spikes, the player will land in front of the Spikes and not go over it, however the enemy will still take damage.
  • Assault Slash cannot be used after Blaze due to it causing the enemy to bounce in place.
    • If the player uses Blaze on a downed monster causing it to stand before being knocked back, the monster may be targeted by Assault Slash.
  • Assault Slash cannot be used after Spirit Weapon Awakening.
  • Unlike other melee attacks, Assault Slash is a distance-based skill and therefore aims for the center of the target's hitbox. As a result, monsters with very large hitboxes, such as the Giant Spider, may be difficult to target properly.
  • Assault Slash does not affect a weapon's Durability or Proficiency.
  • Assault Slash does not inflict Injury.
