Critical Moves

Critical Edge

Italiano Quattro Volte Forare: Durnver begins his Critical Edge by saying "I can feel it..." and performs an uppercut with his rapier. While the enemy is in mid-air, he shouts "...Yeah ah!", stabs them quickly three times and delivers a fourth finishing stab while rose petals fly about.

Critical Finish

Maledizione della Regalità: He knocks his opponents back with a hit, stabs his sword into the ground, and attacks the opponent by biting their neck crouching over them while they scream. After vampirizing his opponent, he gets up and wipes his mouth.


Ascendente Nobile

Durnver's rapier has served him for as long has he remembered, the gold on it represents his royal linage. It as an odd Spanish like cup hilt with only a silver color and small gold embroiled design.

Caduto Nobile

A rapier that belonged to one of Durnver's ancestor. It as an odd cup like hilt with only a silver color, a dark purple handle and small gold design.
