    Looks very noice, GJ!


    EDIT: The marked red should say left, right? :p
    any swings on the D side, you would turn right and any on the A side you would turn right.

    How effective is shadowswinging in 1.4.5? I found it didn't really seem viable last patch, and it's how I duel most often. Also you summed up 1-8 pretty well that's as in depth as i go when newbies ask how to duel

    Thank you!

    I've found that using shadow swing to combo and then run is pretty effective, but to gain ACM it's not really worth atm, as ACM seems to have next to no value in this patch.

    Read it all. I have one question. What is ACC? I saw it mentioned somewhere, it must have something to do with ACM.

    I think ACC is another word for ACM, its just people calling it like 'Attack Chain Multiplier' or 'Attack Chain Count'. Either that or people call it ACC by accident, I know I used to call ACM 'ADM' because I thought it meant 'Attack Damage Multiplier.'

    ACC used to be the number of attacks you needed to made in order to get 1 ACM, its nothing relevant now since you get ACM in each hit after your first single hit, however, in 1.3 was important, if i remember it properly, it was:

    3 ACC = 1 ACM for fast styles.
    2 ACC = 1 ACM for medium styles.
    1 ACC = 1 ACM for strong styles.

    *ACC stands for Attack Chain Counter
