Tips & Notes

  • Lightning is a counter to Wind as most Wind enemies are very quick

  • On its own Lightning significantly slows an enemy movement, but can be stacked with a Sloth Talisman to render any enemy that you can't seem to dodge nearly immobile. A handy element to always bring with you

  • A great tool to use against your fellow Samurai warriors as it makes it impossible for them to get out of your combos
