Description Accelerates Special trigger (cooldown count-1). If unit's HP ≥ 50% and unit initiates combat, unit can make a follow-up attack before foe can counterattack.


  • 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.

  • Shadow Sword 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 Shadow Sword's priority changing effect.
  • Shadow Sword changes the attack priority, or order of attacks, and therefore can be disabled by skills such as Hardy Bearing 3.png Hardy Bearing 3.
