Charge Blade Tips

Sword Mode

This mode is just like Sword and Shield with two differences. The first one is that your speed gets lower and the second one is that you can block more effectively with it.

While fighting, every attack you hit builds Kinetic Energy which you can store in Phials inside the shield.  This is where the “Charge” in Charge blade comes from

Storing enough Kinetic Energy inside the Phials makes you able to use the Axe mode efficiently.

Axe Mode

To activate this mode, you have to combine the shield and sword to turn them into an Axe with your stored kinetic energy charge. You can use this energy for Elemental Discharge, which is a micro explosion that comes with each Axe swing.

This makes your Axe even more deadly. You can also you the Super Amped Elemental Discharge, which will use your complete Phial charges to make a massive attack that will destroy everything in your way. You can only perform this move by transferring the Phials KE directly into the shield.

Like any other weapon Charge Blade have different Phials types for different effects. For example, Elemental Phials cause additional elemental damage while Impact Phials do stun damage to the monster’s head.
