Notes

  • This ability changes auto-attacks from physical damage to spirit damage/breath damage (the same as Requiescat and Chi Blast).
  • Attacks with Formless Strikes active are less powerful than physical attacks, normal damage is reduced to 60% when initially unlocked.
  • Your spirit based auto-attacks will not be affected by physical resistances or barriers (Invincible.) It will now be affected by spiritual damage resistance.
  • Attacks can be "resisted".
  • It is best used against monsters that resist physical attacks, such as Elementals.
  • Formless Strikes attacks still give the user and the enemy normal TP.
  • This ability does not affect your Weapon Skills or counterattacks. They will have the same properties they had before activation.
