Martial Artist - Master Arts Review

1Impulse Wave★★★★★
10Jackal Claw★★★★・
20Raging Force★★★★・

Impulse Wave is a good choice for Attackers because its recharge is quite fast and its firepower increases with the number of enemies. Jackal Claw is also a strong weapon that provides stable firepower and has an additional effect of evasion, it should be acquired by Attackers. Raging Fist is a Talent Art that can provide tremendous damage output depending on the conditions, it is a good idea to learn it.

Martial Artist - Master Skill Reviews

5Feline Righting ReflexFeline Righting Reflex★・・・・
15Frenzied ComboFrenzied Combo★★★★★

Feline Righting Reflex is strong if it works but since the activation conditions cannot be met, it is unnecessary to learn. Frenzied Combo is extremely powerful when combined with Critical Rate Up Skills, attackers should prioritize learrning it.
