  • The first three combos deal 200% bonus damage on the three initial attacks, for a total of 300% total damage.
  • The final strike of Coiling Impale will prompt a Counterattack finisher, effectively adding one more hit to the combo.
  • Counterattack finishers from the front also have the additional effect of knockdown, prompting a ground finisher.
  • The combos for this Stance slow the weapon's attack speed greatly.


  • Twisting Flurry and Coiling Impale can be initiated by holding down their respective combo buttons first—Back  and RMB  respectively—then pressing E  repeatedly. This makes them easier to initiate than many other combos.
  • The final strike of Coiling Impale has a very small hit box and as such it is recommended to use melee auto-targeting to ensure a hit.


  • The 3rd hit of Twisting Flurry's last attack has a 200% multiplier for slash damage.
