But that’s not all. The sword has a unique ability called the Unblockable Blade Ability. This ability is as awesome as the name suggests. By using this special attack, you’ll be cutting through the enemy lines even if they’re blocking your attacks. But that’s not all that you get with this ability. It has a broken range. When using this, the sword’s length increases and so does its range that allows you to hit several enemies in one hit. This skill can keep the heavily armored enemies at a distance from you. But the cost of this skill is 25 FP, which is quite high but is worth it.
