Ultimate Dash:
Another rush attack which sweeps through those foolish enough to stand in your way, a nice method to attack someone 5m off if you can aim the dash, since the recharge time isn’t that high.

Decision:
May be considered as best Greatsword skill to exist, as it is a ground shaking strike with the highest damage modifier seen in Greatsword stances. Though the modifier seems not very high for being called “best”, but remember that Greatswords dominate in damage output per hit themselves. In addition, its an area attack!

Granado Espada Stance – Sabre Garde

The more defensive Stance among the Rapier using ones, allowing you to greatly increase evasion, giving you the possibility to dodge a lot of attacks. In addition, leather armor can add Evasion easily, with the correct gear you can become near untouchable while having skills with strong damage modifiers. Do note thoug, that the more enemies attacking you, the less effective Evasion is. You are best off tanking a single enemy (for example a boss)
