Surge Slash Combo Notes & Trivia

  • Compared to the standard Great Sword moveset, Surge Slash allows for more fluid attack combinations emphasizing speed over raw power.
  • This Switch Skill set is perfect for large monsters that tend to move quickly or erratically, which usually hinders the standard Great Sword's moveset from being as effective. Combining the two using the Switch Skill Swap Scrolls can lead to some devastating results and extreme versatility.
  • Initial Vortex Slash combos have super-armor frames similar to that of the Tackle Switch Skill, allowing players to tank through monster attacks and continue the combo. This also carries over to the first Charged Slash at the end of the combo if it is progressed, increasing the odds of it connecting.
  • However, much like Tackle, it will not grant the player immunity to being stunned if their stun counter hits the limit.
  • Due to the swift nature of Falling Slash, using a combination of Quick Sheathe and/or Critical Draw/Punishing Draw can make for fantastic hit-and-run tactics with fair damage, or higher stun potential, respectively.
  • Falling Slash > Rising Slash > Rising Slash allows for vicious weak point damage if aimed at monster weak spots or broken parts, as the final Rising Slash hits twice.
