Icon Name Description
Flash of Steel.png Flash of Steel If captain initiates combat, captain can make a follow-up attack before foe can counterattack. Grants the following to captain and allies within 2 spaces of captain during combat: "neutralizes effects that grant 'Special cooldown charge +X' to foe or inflict 'Special cooldown charge -X' on unit."

Notes[]

  • If unit initiates combat means if the user starts combat on their turn. The unit does not need to deal damage, nor be the first to attack.
    • However, if the effect is applied after combat, the unit must also survive it to fulfill this condition.

  • Flash of Steel does not guarantee the user a follow-up attack.
  • If the user can perform a follow-up attack, either by a speed check or 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.
  • Skills such as Vantage 3.png Vantage 3 and the  Vantage status effect have priority over the Flash of Steel's priority changing effect.
  • Flash of Steel changes the attack priority, or order of attacks, and therefore can be disabled by skills such as Hardy Bearing 3.png Hardy Bearing 3.
  • Flash of Steel will neutralize the "Special cooldown charge +X" effect on foes such as from Heavy Blade 4.png Heavy Blade 4 and the  Accelerate Special status effect.
    • Since the "Special cooldown charge +X" effect will be neutralized on foes, Flash of Steel will also stack with the "Special cooldown charge -X" effect inflicted on the foe, such as from Icon Class Red Sword.png Guard Sword+ and the  Guard status effect, unless the foe is equipped with skills that neutralize the "Special cooldown charge -X" effect on unit.
  • Flash of Steel will neutralize the "Special cooldown charge -X" effect on unit such as from a foe with Icon Class Red Sword.png Guard Sword+ or the  Guard status effect.
    • Since the "Special cooldown charge -X" effect will be neutralized on unit, Flash of Steel will also stack with the "Special cooldown charge +X" effect on unit, such as from Heavy Blade 4.png Heavy Blade 4 and the  Accelerate Special status effect, unless the foe is equipped with skills that neutralize the "Special cooldown charge +X" effect on unit.
  • The effect of Flash of Steel will not apply to the user's allies who are in combat against a foe with skills such as Impenetrable Dark.png Impenetrable Dark and C Feud 3.png C Feud 3.
