Swift Slash

Matt using Swift Slash in EBF4.

Swift Slash (also known as Wind Slash in EBF1 and 3, and as Windslash in EBF2) is a multi-target weapon-elemental skill available for Matt in the first four games, or for NoLegs in the fifth game.

Description

When performed, the user dashes through the enemy wave with their weapon, damaging all foes at the same time.

Swift Slash is one of the very few multi-target skills in Matt's or NoLegs' otherwise single-target focused moveset, making it a good (if not the only) option to deal with groups of weaker foes or when one wants to spread damage among enemies. It can also be useful to spread a weapon's status effects.

The skill was renamed Windslash and became slightly more expensive. Before the EBF Collection update, the in-game description incorrectly stated the skill had 4000 power instead of 3300, and 100% Accuracy instead of 120%.

Renamed Swift Slash (most likely to avoid assumptions that it is a Wind-element skill), it is nearly unchanged from its previous appearance. However, it no longer has decreased status/debuff infliction chance, which works well with certain swords' effects, such as Blood Blade's Tired or the updated version of Dragon Claw's Poison.

Silver Blade may counterattack with Swift Slash.
