Will always perform the pattern Charging Up, Fierce Bash, Vent Steam, and then Whirlwind. When returning from Defensive Mode, the next attack will be Whirlwind, and then continues the pattern as normal.
Its Mode Shift status reduces in number equal to damage it has received. Once it reaches 0, it will shift into Defensive Mode, interrupting any previous intentions and instantly changing its intent to Defensive Mode.
In addition, shifting back to Offensive Mode will add 10 to Mode Shift.
|Charging Up||Gains 9 Block.||Gains 9 Block.|
|Fierce Bash||Deals 32 damage.||Deals 36 damage.|
|Vent Steam||Inflicts 2 Vulnerable and 2 Weak.||Inflicts 2 Vulnerable and 2 Weak.|
|Whirlwind||Deals 5 x 4 damage.||Deals 5 x 4 damage.|
Immediately gains 20 Block when shifting to Defensive Mode. Will perform the pattern Defensive Mode, Roll Attack, and Twin Slam. Will lose Sharp Hide when switching to Offensive Mode. Also note that the damage done by Sharp Hide can be blocked, so don't be too afraid to attack.
Sharp Hide works similarly to Thorns, except it activates when you play attack cards, not when you hit the enemy. Therefore, using a Twin Strike will activate it only once, and using a Skewer at 0 energy will also activate it once.
