The Sword is a slashing weapon type in Dauntless.

Summary

A classic weapon that shines in close quarters. Slash and slice to build your meter, then let loose with a burst of speed. An excellent choice for severing parts.

The sword has three main components: core combos, Valour combos, and the special meter. The core combos are the most basic combos, and they are the primary source of generating Valour. Once enough Valour is obtained, Valour combos become available, which consume the built-up Valour. Landing the final hit of combos will also increase the Special meter. At full meter, the special becomes available, which generates Valour and has unique properties.
