Fast-Hitting Attacks

The Dual Blades are one of the fastest weapons in Monster Hunter Rise. Weapons that deals elemental damage or status effect go well with this strength.

Increases Attack With Demon Mode

The motion and effectiveness of your attacks improve significantly during Demon Mode. Keep your eye on the stamina bar when using this.

Quick Movement Speed

Demon Mode increases the movement speed while the weapon is unsheathed, allowing you to move around freely while in combat.

Requires Stamina Management

While in Demon Mode, your stamina gradually decreases. You can't dodge or maintain Demon Mode when your stamina runs out so make sure you manage it well.

Requires Frequent sharpening

Due to its fast-hitting attacks, the sharpness of your weapon decreases rapidly. In previous Monster Hunter World, skills like Razor Sharp was a must to maintain the sharpness.

Can't Guard Enemy's Attacks

Since you are holding 2 blades on both hands, you can't guard enemy's attacks. You'll need to predict incoming attacks and dodge them to stay alive. In previous MHW, skill of Evade Window was used to increase the evading window to compensate this weakness.
