  • Many of the combos do bonus physical damage.
    • The first attack of every combo does 100% bonus Puncture b Puncture damage. The second attack in every combo does 100% bonus Slash b Slash damage.
    • The third attack of Lashing Forward does 50% bonus Slash b Slash damage.
    • The fourth attack of Life Eater does 25% bonus Slash b Slash damage.
  • The final hit of Lashing Forward will send the player lunging forward, thrusting with the dagger, with a 100% chance of inflicting Slash b Slash proc.
  • Relentless Point, the ground-finisher combo, delivers two blows. One as a downward stab, and the second as a quick, back-handed slash, potentially allowing for a double-hit on an enemy that is getting up from the ground.
  • When using this stance with the GrineerCombatKnife Sheev and HeatDagger Heat Dagger, the last hit in Life Eater will inflict Heat b Heat status on nearby enemies.
    • Similarly, the KarystDagger Karyst will inflict guaranteed Toxin b Toxin proc on nearby enemies on the last hit.


  • It is recommended to enable Melee Auto Targeting under Options when using this stance especially if one likes to use the Lashing Forward combo, as the stance's high mobility attacks have a good chance of missing due to their speed.
  • To execute Lashing Forward, keep a steady rhythm and minimize the time that E  is pressed to avoid accidentally performing the other combos.
    • A high attack speed appears to create a larger window for this combo.
  • Since the reintroduction of charge attacks, Cutting Arches can be performed with E  Hold E .
  • The pause on Life Eater is fairly long, and the attacks after it have long windows to keep the combo going; making this one of the more forgiving combos. Its slow speed also makes it easy to stop if need be.


  • Cutting Arches has identical animation to Mod TT 20pxCrimson Dervish's Coiling Impale combo yet does not parry the enemy for a finisher like Coiling Impale does.
