  • The final slash of Beyond Reproach has a 100% chance of inflicting Slash b Slash proc.
    • The 4th slash deals 50% bonus damage.
  • The kick before the final slash of Breathless Lunge has a 100% chance to knock the target down.
    • If chained on an enemy correctly, it will initiate a Counterattack finisher instead of proceeding with the final slash. This is highly effective against single, durable targets like Heavy Gunners and Scrambuses.
    • It does more damage than normal stealth finishers (further testing needed for correct values).


  • Hook and Eye can be initiated by holding down parry first, then pressing E  in sequence. This makes it easier to initiate than other combos.
  • Similarly, Breathless Lunge can be easier to execute if you pause between every tap of E . Alternately, this combo can oddly enough be executed by holding Downarrow  and then pressing E  repeatedly.
