  • The first three combos deal 200% bonus damage on the three initial attacks, for a total of 300% total damage.
  • The final strike of Coiling Impale will prompt a Counterattack finisher, effectively adding one more hit to the combo.
  • Counterattack finishers from the front also have the additional effect of knockdown, prompting a ground finisher.
  • The combos for this Stance slow the weapon's attack speed greatly. This does not affect quick-melee.
    • Since the stance does not affect quick melee's attacks, the damage boost possessed by all of its combos also are not added to quick melee attacks - In order to deal bonus damage from Crimson Dervish, the sword must be the active weapon.


  • Twisting Flurry and Coiling Impale can be initiated by holding down their respective combo buttons first - Back  and RMB  respectively - then pressing E  repeatedly. This makes them easier to initiate than many other combos.
  • The final strike of Coiling Impale has a very small hit box and as such it is recommended to use melee auto-targeting to ensure a hit.
