1[Practical Hunting -Swords-]

There are hunters who are happy they have made it into the hunting ranks, but are unsure of what weapon to use. In this lecture, we will give these worried hunters a special report on Swords.

2Many people feel that Swords are simple weapons for weak beginners, but the truth is that they are weapons with immense depth. Sure, it is true that a single hit is relatively minor, and that it is possible to be knocked out of one's Guard; however, Swords make up for this with a plethora of special characteristics and attributes.
3The interval between Sword attacks is very small, so combination attacks suit this weapon well. Moreover, Swords are graced with the ability to quickly shift from attacking to defending and evasion. This is an excellent feature to have when facing large groups of monsters, or especially nimble ones like the Velociprey.
4When facing the toughest class of wyverns, you can see a Sword's true worth by using its attributes. Weapons capable of afflicting a monster with special ailments in a rapid number of hits are quick to show their effectiveness. Swords fit this bill nicely!
5Moreover, a Sword is an incredibly easy to use weapon, thus enabling various special abilities. For instance, you can use items while guarding. Use this great ability to recover your Health, set a Trap, use a Whetstone, etc. During a battle, there are times you have to Guard, so make the most of these moments!
6The Sword can also execute a Rising Slash attack. Sometimes the short reach of a Sword will leave you less than satisfied when facing a large monster. That's where the Rising Slash comes in. With it, you can reach up higher and attack the weak points of a monster. You can also execute this attack from a Guard stance.
7Another one of the benefits of a Sword is the fact that they do not require a vast quantity of materials to create or improve. The prices they command are also less than comparable weapons in other classes, and Swords can be improved into powerful Dual Blades.
8Large numbers, an abundance of attributes, and easy to acquire. These are all the strengths of a Sword. You, too, should give a Sword a try today!
