Tips & Notes

  • Wind is a counter to Fire as most Fire-based enemies have a high attack rating. It also prevents recurrent damage from Fire while the enemy is afflicted. If the player is afflicted it causes him to be guard broken easier and parrying becomes much harder. The decreased attack power only applies to Yokai

      “it also prevents recurrent damage from fire when afflicted”.

      Umm...what do you mean?? Do you mean that when that ENEMY afflucted by WIND is unable to do recurrent FIRE damage to YOU? Or do you mean that ENEMY afflicted by WIND is ITSELF immune to recurrent damage from fire?

          "Lowers the target's break-resistance and parry"
          Is this true?
          I noticed that when fighting Tengus and Mitsunari whenever I get the wind debuff I do way lower damage.
