Shadow Sprint makes for reeeeaaaaally easy juggling.

So I was playing as Xiahou Dun with his Podao, and found that once I reached three stars with it, I could cancel all strong attacks with a dash by pressing Square that is also an attack itself. It is pathetically easy to just use C6 and cancel it with a Shadow Sprint at the end. This will put you in range for another attack and will keep the opponent juggled long enough for you to do so. It's really simple to take down an enemy officer from 100% health down to zero in a single combo this way. Just C6, dash, C6, dash, C6, dash... Alternatively, the C2 and C4 work just as well. I don't know what other weapons have this compatibility bonus, but I suspect they're just as broken.

yup there are plenty of easy infinites in this game
which is very nice for when you don't feel like being ~fancy~
and just want the enemy to fail completely and die horribly

my current favorite would have to be the bomb weapon's
C4 (appropriately named bomb toss)
C1 (detonate bombs sending all enemies hit by the explosion towards you)
C4 (toss more bombs)
C1 (oh look here they come again)
C4 (rinse)
C1 (repeat)

the kicker here is that you don't need any proficiency at all with bombs to do this
they are just that broken :y

Gan Ning's new flail also has Shadow Sprint at max compatibility.

Pleasantly surprised to find it in this game after seeing videos of it in DW8.

Yeah, way back when they introduced that in XL, I was like "Wait, I get a spirit charge, minus the guard break, FOR FREE?!"

...grumble, grumble, Zhong Hui was robbed when he got deemed Technique, grumble...jump canceling with FS is the best...

Zhou Yu's EX juggles enemies, spammable too. No shadow sprint needed.

There's no "I" in "TEAM," but there's an "I" in "WIN."
