Notes[]

Tips[]

  • When going up against armored opponents, one should consider building for DmgCorrosiveSmall64 Corrosive due to the weapon's low status chance.

Trivia[]

  • A Guandao (more properly referred to a yanyuedao (偃月刀) – "reclining moon blade") is a type of Chinese pole weapon used in some forms of Chinese martial arts, most notably Shaolin Kung Fu. The name is derived from Guan Yu (關羽), a famed general from the Three Kingdoms period of China who is said to have invented and wielded the guandao.

Bugs[]

  • Despite being nearly the same size as Galatine Galatine (Prime), the Guandao stretches out of the Foundry animation while the Galatine doesn't.
