What Is A Draw Attack?

iai slash.gif
A draw attack is an attack that unsheathes or draws your weapon. So technically, all weapons have draw attacks! However, only Great Sword and Long Sword have useful moves that come from being directly sheathed. The Great Sword has Charged Slash, while the Long Sword has Drawn Double Slash/Step Slash, Iai Slash (shown above) and Iai Spirit Slash.

When you have Critical Draw equipped, right after performing a draw attack (not during), you will gain an affinity boost for only around 2 seconds.

    • Give us the ability to change our layered armor display. What I mean is, ya know how armor looks different on the male and female models? well, I wish there was the ability to change the appearance from the male models of armor, to the female models, and the reverse without changing the gender of your character itself. This would be really nice, as imo some armor pieces look better as the male model version.
