All-Out Attack is an Uncommon Card for the Silent which deals damage to all enemies once, then discards a random card in your hand. If after playing All-Out Attack your hand is empty, no cards will be discarded.

Strategy[]

All-Out Attack is a strong source of upfront AoE (Area-of-Effect) damage. It has higher burst of damage than Dagger Spray, upgraded or otherwise. It scales with Icon Strength.png Strength worse than the latter, given that All-Out Attack hits only once. However, due to the same reason, it is less punishing to use against enemies with Icon Thorns.png Thorns.

With its discard being random in nature, it is highly preferable to use all the other high-impact cards before using this card as a sort of 'closer' card to make it less likely that it will discard a card that you actually wanted to play.

Synergies[]

  • Tactician and Reflex grant benefits when discarded, although you need to plan your use of card carefully to have All-Out Attack more likely to discard said cards.
  • ToughBandages.png Tough Bandages and Tingsha.png Tingsha have a synergy with discarding, granting free Icon Block.png Block and damage respectively.
  • This card is stronger in Act 1, where enemies have low health.
    • It can still perform moderately well in Act 2, being a cheap burst of AoE damage.
  • Less risky to use against Spiker than Dagger Spray, especially if there are more than one. However, the Silent has an access to much better indirect damage in a form of Icon Poison.png Poison.

Trivia[]

  • The card's artwork, a cloud with fists popping out suggesting rapid beatings, is a reference to the move of the same name from Persona series.
