Dragon Flash Notes & Tips
- Dragon Flash can still be used if the player has less than 2 Spirit Emblems, but the attack will not produce shockwaves.
- Dragon Flash is a Combat Arts Skill.
- Patch 1.03 reduced the Spirit Emblem cost from 3 to 2.
- As the only long-ranged combat art in the game, Dragon Flash has a lot of pros. The initial strike and aftershock will stagger enemies and do high vitality damage as well. While One Mind is easier to acquire than Dragon Flash, it certainly is not easier to use than the latter. Dragon Flash is a charge sniping ability that does not require much in terms of situational advantage.
- Dragon Flash excels at dealing with beast-type enemies, as well as the Taro Troop members.
- Damage dealt can vary greatly depending on enemy's size and amount of shockwaves hit. For best results stay as close as possible and choose larger targets. Generally you can expect at least 2x + 1.25x = 3.25x health and 2x + 1.5x = 3.5x posture damage (initial strike + shockwave). Without emblems its 1x and 1.5x - almost the same as normal attack.
