Floating Passage Notes & Tips
- This is the combo attack used by Genichiro Ashina (a student of Tomoe's teachings) and certain enemies found in Fountainhead Palace
- Causes some vitality damage even when blocked.
- Of some use against many sword-wielding enemies and bosses if used as a counterattack; if the first hit lands, they must block the rest of the string as any attempts to counter will likely causes their attack to be interrupted (needs further testing, but definitely seems useful against the bosses fought in the Shura ending) Edit: Anon Reply: This is not true as of most recent patch.
- As of most recent patch, Floating Passage now inflicts 20% as chip damage through guard if being guarded. However, Floating passage's final slash can be countered, doing decent damage to your posture. This makes Floating Passage a more offensive-type Combat Art, now dealing vitality and posture damage in tandem.
- Floating Passage can be picked up very early on in Hirata Estate. As of the most recent patch, Floating Passage rivals Whirlwind slash in usefulness, giving players an option: As both Combat Arts deal damage through enemy guard, they now really differ in the precision of the Art. 1. If you find yourself needing to do damage to multiple enemies at once, spreading damage broadly, use Whirlwind Slash. 2. If you'd rather take that damage and use it as part of a combo to assault a singular opponent, use Floating Passage.
- Full combo deals approximatly 3x (2x when blocked) health and 2x posture damage (depends on the amount of successful hits and target size).
