Additional Details[edit | edit source]

  • Lann-only skill.
  • Requires Twin Swords to use.
  • For each enemy struck by the normal attack stab, Lann gains one stack of Sharp effect and stacks up to 10 times. Sharp increases critical chance by 10%.
    • Sharp lasts an infinite amount of time until converted into Furious.
    • The normal stabs can hit enemies above and below Lann.
  • Upon landing a critical hit, Sharp will be converted to Furious, retaining Sharp's critical chance while increasing the damage of Gliding Fury, Lightning Fury, and Active: Fury No.7 by 30%. The duration of Furious is based on Sharp's stacks when converted.
    • While Furious is active, additional Thousand Needle stabs will not re-apply the Sharp buff, but will instead increase the duration of Furious. Landing critical hits will also increase Furious duration.
  • Ranking the skill only increases damage dealt by the stabs and smash. It does not affect the Sharp/Furious buffs.
  • Thousand Needle's normal stab can cancel out of the small pause at the end of a Slip Dash and a Nimble Dash. The stab itself can be quickly canceled into a Slip Dash. Hence a series of properly timed stab and dash will allow Sword Lann to spam his dashes with much less interruption in between. This allows Sword Lann to easily stand up against bosses that throw out a long series of fast attacks.
