Empowered Mortal Draw Notes & Tips
- Empowered Mortal Draw is a Combat Arts Skill
- Players are only allowed to equip one Combat Arts Skill
- This attack can still be used even if you do not have the required emblems, but range and damage are cut almost in half. It happens because the attack has two swings - one is short-ranged and is always activated, the second one is far-reaching and does not appear without emblems.
- The skill becomes locked upon entering New Game Plus and cannot be purchased until the player has reacquired the Mortal Blade. If the skill was already purchased within a previous playthrough, it will again become usable upon reacquiring the mortal blade and will not need to be purchased again.
- Empowered Mortal Draw is an excellent combat art to equip when, contrary to what one may think, the player is out of spirit emblems. When out of emblems, players will perform Mortal Draw instead, and the attack does the same damage to vitality and posture as if a player performed a full cost Mortal Draw. It should be noted, however, that this version cannot be charged up to unleash a more powerful strike.
- When out of spirit emblems, it seems that players can still charge Mortal Draw before release, but it seems to do no increase to damage and only slightly increases the range of the strike. It is not worth charging the strike up unless you have the necessary spirit emblems to perform the true attack.
- Mid-air Combat Arts increases the damage potential of Mortal Draw dramatically. Every mid-air draw counts as an empowered, that is, has its range and damage. Works even with normal Mortal Draw equipped, not Empowered one.
Empowered Mortal Draw damage
- Without empowering this combat art deals 1.88x + 1.12x = 3x health and 1.7x + 1.65x = 3.35x posture damage relatively to basic attack (coeffitients are given for short and far swings accordingly). Blocking only reduces total health damage to 1.68x.
- Empowering increases the damage to 2.5x + 1.5x = 4x health and 2.5x + 2.5x = 5x posture. Blocking reduces total health damage to 2.25x.
