Build Characteristics & Overview
The Dual Blades are one of the fastest weapons in the game, letting you adroitly dodge your opponent's abilities and deal consistent damage. That being said, the weapons made available to us in the game's Demo were non-elemental, which is a huge disadvantage for the Dual Blades. For this reason, it's a bit hard to judge how powerful it will be, but we do expect it to really come into its own once we can use elemental weapons.
