CharacteristicsEdit

This weapon deals primarily Radiation b Radiation damage.

Advantages:

  • Innate Radiation b Radiation damage, highly effective against Alloy Armor and Robotic enemies.

  • 100% Radiation b Radiation status proc on ground finisher.
  • Stance slot has Unairu Pol polarity, matches Iron Phoenix stance.

Disadvantages:

Weapon LoadoutsEdit

NotesEdit

  • Normal attacks have a little area of effect, and when enemies are close a portion of the damage is spread, much like Scindo. It is very noticeable when using elemental mods, as the visual effect is applied with the damage too.
  • The Taking Flight combo of Iron Phoenix will also trigger the AoE Toxin b Toxin proc.

TipsEdit

TriviaEdit

  • The Dark Sword and its shorter counterpart the Dark Dagger were previously physical damage weapons. Update 13 changed them to deal purely Radiation b Radiation damage on their normal attacks, making them the first melee weapons to do so.
