Type Icon Name SP Required Description
B Desperation 1.png Desperation 1 50 If unit's HP ≤ 25% and unit initiates combat, unit can make a follow-up attack before foe can counterattack.
Desperation 2.png Desperation 2 100 Desperation 1 If unit's HP ≤ 50% and unit initiates combat, unit can make a follow-up attack before foe can counterattack.

No restrictions.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Desperation does not guarantee the user a follow-up attack.
  • If the user can perform a follow-up attack, either by a speed check or a skill such as Brash Assault 3.png Brash Assault 3, the initial attack and follow-up will occur before the foe can perform a counterattack.
  • A foe with a skill such as Vantage 3.png Vantage 3 has priority over the user with Desperation.
  • Desperation changes the attack priority, or order of attacks, and therefore can be disabled by skills such as Hardy Bearing 3.png Hardy Bearing 3.
