Hello and welcome, I am Alex and this is my second GameFAQs guide. This guide 
is for people who want to learn to play "Ragna the Bloodedge" in AKSYS Games
newest addition (at time of writing), BlazBlue: Continuum Shift II, also known
as "v1.03" by console players.

You'll find your way around this guide using the Find function like other
guides. When you search in Find, you should type the opening bracket [ as well,
I use the numerals as a referral device sometimes so if you just search for
"9-20" you might find my referral, instead of the actual section. So search
with "[9-20", not just "9-20".


The instructions in this guide assume that all players involved have already 
gone through the basic moves on their characters and are comfortable inputting
them.

If I tell you watch out for a certain character's move, it's because I'm
talking from experience fighting experts, and I expect all enemies to be able
to pull them off easily.

There is no commandant that says "Thou Shalt Always Obey This Guide." Guides
are intended to give *GOOD* advice on how to play a character. The choice is
ultimately up to you, the player. Don't be afraid to try different combinations
of tactics other than the ones in this guide.

This guide is very comprehensive, if I say I'm going to show you how to get off
a certain move, I'm going to show you a LOT of ways to do it.

The goal in all my character guides is not to turn you into a competent player
of that character, it's to turn you into that freak that goes 40-0 in a player
match that makes people swear in awe when you perfect them and they say things
like "I didn't know that worked" when you combo them.

!!!!!!! LANGUAGE NOTICE LANGUAGE NOTICE LANGUAGE NOTICE LANGUAGE NOTICE !!!!!!!

This guide may use occasional profanity, including the almighty F-bomb. It also
uses the word "rape" as a term regarding certain gameplay mechanics. If this
offends you please do not read this guide.

There are a lot of things to talk about in this game, and I'm going to use a
lot of terms I made up myself, so I've included this Glossary to let you know
what I mean. If you ever find a word I use and think "Huh?" simply refer here
to see what I meant. This Glossary also includes common BlazBlue terms.

NOTE: This Glossary is universal to all my character guides for BlazBlue, and
      I highly recommend you review it before moving on as I will not waste
      time explaining them in context. It is sorted into categories and then
      alphabetically.
 _____________________________________________________________________________
|  WORD                 MEANING                                               \
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
                         MOVES, HITS, AND COUNTERS
                 ----------------------------------------

  Astral Heat           The ultimate move for each character, Astral Heats
                        will instantly win the game for you if they connect.
                        The catch is that they can only be used when your
                        opponent is below 35% life, you have 100 Heat, you have
                        a Burst Icon available, and you will win the match if
                        you win the current round. Abbreviated as AH.

  Cancel Frame          A certain specific interval in a move where it is able
                        to be interrupted, no matter if you hit or miss. Very
                        few moves have this. Jin and Haku-Men both uniquely
                        have this on every one of their C moves, Jin's sheath
                        will sparkle while Haku-Men has no obvious indication.

  Counter               Hitting an enemy while they were trying to hit 
                        you/perform another action, this will make them freeze
                        longer, allowing combos not previously possible.

  Distortion Drive      A superior move that generally deals massive damage but
                        also requires Heat. Abbreviated DD or Dist.


  Fatal Counter         A new addition to Continuum Shift, Fatal Counters occur
                        only when you score a counter hit with specific moves
                        with each character. Fatal Counters, or "Fatals",
                        increase the amount of time an opponent is stunned for
                        every hit that comes after it, allowing some truly
                        spectacular combos.


  Heavy Hit             A hit performed by a stronger attack, these freeze the
                        enemy even when they're not counters. Most 5B and 5C
                        moves count as a heavy hit. Notice the difference in 
                        graphic and sound between Light and Heavy.

  Light Hit             A hit performed by a relatively wimpy attack, these 
                        hardly freeze the enemy at all. The easiest example is
                        to simply hit someone with 5A. Observe the graphic.

  Masking               This involves using the input of a move as part of the
                        input of an entirely separate move. It is very useful
                        for linking long and difficult inputs onto rapid moves.



                           TECHING AND MOVEMENT
                 ----------------------------------------

  Air Locked            Using some moves in midair causes your character to be
                        unable to move, attack, jump, or even sometimes block
                        until they hit the ground again. Unlike Falling though,
                        you are still in "control". If you need an example, use
                        Haku-Men's Drive in midair.

  Bind                  Some moves knock an opponent to the ground but do not
                        let them tech for a short period of time. This is a
                        common result of many 3C moves and getting knocked
                        downward out of the air.

  Bounce                Yet another "not-entirely-new-but-definitely-more
                        -common" addition to CS2. Bouncing most often occurs
                        on characters Air Throws now. Bouncing is identical to
                        Bind because you cannot tech but unlike Bind a Bounce
                        keeps the victim airborne throughout the duration.

  Fake Jump Cancel      Any move that can be Jump Canceled from the ground can
                        usually also be "Fake Jump Canceled" by inputting a
                        Special Move immediately after inputting the Jump
                        Cancel. What's actually happening is your character is
                        jumping but being immediately forced onto the ground by
                        the Special Move input.

                        An excellent example is Ragna's Astral Heat being Fake
                        Jump Canceled after 6A. You are not able to cancel the
                        Astral Heat onto 6A without a Fake Jump Cancel.

                        NOTE: As of the CS2 patch Fake Jump Canceling was
                        (completely?) removed as a technique so it is no longer
                        necessary.

  Falling               Being in midair yet not able to control your character
                        as a result of being hit. Requires a tech in order to
                        recover. Can be considered the midair equivalent of
                        Stun.

  Jump Cancel           Certain moves can be canceled by a Jump input and most
                        often lead to aerial combos.

  Push                  A new term I am using for CS2. Push is used to describe
                        how far a combo will take the victim in one direction.
                        This is essential for effective zoning and advanced
                        players know how to adjust their combos when they know
                        if the combo they are doing will take them into the
                        wall or not.

  Sliding               Sliding occurs when you get smacked into the ground by
                        certain moves. You will go skidding across the ground
                        away from your enemy. This can usually only be
                        follow-up when in a wall.

                        Haku-Men's "Tsubaki" is a very obvious example.

  Somersaulting         This is a special type of midair stun that involves
                        the victim somersaulting through the air. You are
                        unable to tech for a much longer time than usual when
                        somersaulting. This is used, like many new properties
                        of movement in CS2, to continue combos in the wall.

                        If you need an example use Ragna's 5A then Dead Spike.

  Super Jump            Performed by pushing 2 before a jump. i.e. 27, 28, and
                        29. The super jump jumps far higher than a normal jump
                        and manipulates many combos.


  Stagger               Some moves stagger an opponent on counters, which makes
                        them go into a vulnerable state that does not
                        automatically dissipate like stun. The victim of a 
                        stagger is required to tech in order to recover or
                        they will crumple to the ground.

  Stun                  The result of being hit. This is how long you are
                        unable to act after receiving damage.

  Tech                  Pushing A, B, or C while staggered, bound, or falling
                        will make your character recover and return to a
                        battle-ready state. You can tech forwards, neutral,
                        backwards, and a special tech input on the ground lets
                        you simply stand up quickly. This special tech is
                        input as 2tech while on the ground.

  Tech Trap             This involves purposely allowing your opponent to tech
                        only to immediately get hit by one of your attacks,
                        usually a anti-air move or a command throw. By allowing
                        a tech to occur all damage scaling gets reset and you 
                        can continue to do maximum damage.

                        Tager is the undisputed king of tech traps.

  Wall Smash            A new addition to CS2, "Wall Smash" is what happens
                        when certain attacks smash you into the wall. The idea
                        of "Invisible Walls" has been mostly done away with in
                        CS2 so now you actually have to hit them into the wall.
                        Wall Smashes allow you to continue combos that were not
                        possible previously.


                           ATTACK PROPERTIES
                 -------------------------------------
 
  Anti-Air              Anti-Air was changed in CS2. Now I only define
                        "anti-air" moves as moves that are immune to attacks
                        from the air.

                        The reason for this is that almost every B, C, D,
                        attack in game is now only blockable by a Barrier Block
                        in midair.

  Bevel Breaker         When an this attack is blocked a guard bevel is lost.
                        Losing all Bevels results in a Guard Crush.

  Damage Scaling        As a combo progresses and adds more and more hits,
                        the damage of each hit will be more and more decreased
                        proportionately to how many hits are in the combo and
                        what kind of hits. As a general rule of thumb, the more
                        damage a hit already does, the less scaling it will
                        inflict on following attacks. 5A for example does
                        barely any damage and it reduces the damage of the rest
                        of the moves in the combo by a significant amount.

                        For the best Damage Scaling, use super quick light hits
                        for combo starting only and stick to powerful hits
                        afterwards.

  Delay                 Pretty self-explanatory, but I'll still spell it out. 
                        Delay is any pausing during a combo, rather than 
                        performing all your moves as soon as possible. Delay is
                        something that must be mastered to use advanced combos.

  Evasion               This means that a move has evasive properties against 
                        the indicated direction, it does NOT however, provide 
                        immunity. I abbreviate it with "Eva" usually, such as 
                        "LowEva" or "HighEva"

  Follow-Up             I use this to mean that there are multiple options 
                        after a certain move. So if I say 6A, follow-up. That 
                        means there's far too many options to list that you 
                        could do after 6A.

  Full Hold             I use this term to indicate that you should hold the 
                        button down for as long as the game lets you.

  Hold                  The attack button can be held down, usually at various
                        lengths to affect the move.

  Immunity              This means that a move has complete invulnerability to
                        the indicated direction, the enemy's attack will be 
                        completely ignored.

  Limited Move          These are attacks that you are not allowed to use more
                        than once (sometimes twice) in a combo. If you use the
                        move more than the allowed amount the Damage Scaling
                        will IMMEDIATELY go completely to shit and the enemy
                        will be able to recover almost at once.

                        Almost ALL Special Moves fall under this category. A
                        good chunk of Basic Moves do as well, usually ones with
                        a Forward input.

                        An excellent example is Haku-Men's 6C, try using it
                        twice on counter and see the effect (v1.03 only).

  True Damage           Something that applies almost exclusively to Distortion
                        Drives, True Damage is the amount of damage a move does
                        when it cannot possibly be scaled any lower. Most moves
                        have terrible True Damage but some Distortions, most
                        commonly ones that involve an attack throw, have some
                        really nice True Damage, allowing them to do well even
                        at the end of a long combo.

                        True Damage on Distortion Drives has been VASTLY
                        increased in CS2 to encourage all characters to end
                        their combos in Distortion Drives.

  Unblockable           Pretty straightforward, the attack can't be blocked. 
                        You block it, it still hits you, kapeesh?

  Unstoppable           This means that an attack cannot be interrupted until 
                        it goes off. This does NOT mean unblockable. Hazama's
                        Astral Heat is a good example.

  Warm Up               This means the time it takes between when a move is 
                        started, and when it actually hits. Measured in frames
                        by the truly hardcore.

                        A little phrase I use in my head to describe this is
                        "The time between initiation and gratification."


                             BLOCKING
                 ------------------------------

  Block                 By holding backwards your character will automatically
                        guard against oncoming hits from your opponent. By
                        holding down-backwards you will block while crouching
                        instead of standing.

  Barrier Block         The same as a block except you hold down A+B. This puts
                        up a barrier that makes your opponent get knocked 
                        further away from you when they hit you which can mess
                        up their pressure strings. While barrier blocking you
                        CAN NOT be Guard Crushed, though you will still lose 
                        bevels until you only have one left. Barrier block also
                        negates chip damage. Barrier block can also block
                        anti-air moves that normal block can't.

  Barrier Burst (GREEN) The more common of the two Barrier Bursts, green Bursts
                        are performed by pushing A+B+C+D whenever you are being
                        hit by an attack that is not a Distortion Drive or Grip
                        hit. You are completely invulnerable during the first
                        frames of this move and your opponent is blasted very
                        far away from you, giving you room to recover. Any hits
                        that combo off of a Green Burst will have horrific
                        Damage Scaling and you are never allowed to actually
                        kill your opponent in a combo off of one.

  Barrier Burst (OJ)    Performed by pushing A+B+C+D. An orange Burst is only
                        possible to perform when you are not currently under
                        pressure from the enemy. It is a very unexpected move
                        and you are completely invulnerable during the opening
                        frames. Hitting an opponent with an Orange Burst sends
                        them flying upward and forward slightly, allowing easy
                        combos. You are able to kill your opponent after an
                        orange Burst, unlike a Green Burst.


  Bevel                 The unit of measurement in the Guard Primer. Running
                        out of bevels results in a Guard Crush. Each character
                        has their own number of bevels.

  Chip Damage           Any special move in this game will inflict a tiny 
                        amount of damage even if you block it. This is to make
                        rapid use of special moves against a turtling opponent
                        an option when you just need that one last speck of
                        life bar gone. Barrier and Instant blocks prevent this.

  Guard Primer          This is the meter near the center-bottom of the upper
                        HUD that displays many little icons called bevels.
                        Blocking certain exceptionally powerful moves will make
                        you lose bevels and losing all your bevels results in a
                        Guard Crush. The Guard Primer slowly regenerates bevels
                        over time.

  Guard Crush           Occurs when you run out of bevels. Guard Crush leaves
                        you vulnerable for an entire, agonizing three seconds.

  Instant Block         The supreme form of block, instant block occurs when
                        you push backwards a split-second before the attack
                        connects, rather than holding it down. You will be
                        rewarded with a small heat bonus that quickly adds up
                        on rapid hits and more importantly you are able to 
                        counter attack much much quicker after an instant block
                        compared to a normal one. This prevents chip damage.

The way I input things is something that I learned first from Soulcalibur IV.

I prefer this method because it outlines the exact directions that need to be
inputted.

The numbers I will use to represent directions are in relation the numbers on
your numpad on your keyboard. (Unless you're on a tiny laptop of course, in
which case I suggest you google a picture of a numpad if you feel left out.)

A numpad is laid out like so:

7  8  9

4  5  6

1  2  3


So, for all direction inputs I give:

  8 is up
  2 is down
  6 is right
  4 is left
  5 is neutral
  9 is up-right
  7 is up-left
  1 is down-left
  3 is down-right

So for a basic example, doing a quarter-circle backwards then pushing the C
button would be "214C"

I use this method because there are some inputs that aren't included in the
more standard abbreviated method "qcb" "qcf" etc.

As always in fighting game notation, the input assumes the character is on the
left side of the screen.

Challenge Mode is a new addition in Continuum Shift that demonstrates various
combos for each character. They range from the really easy to the extremely
difficult ones. However, like any good fighting game, it does not include the
very best combos available to each character. Almost every combo I perform is a
better version of a basic combo in Challenge mode. I strongly recommend you
play through Challenge Mode, it will help you get a basic feel for standard
play.

Challenge Mode received significant attention in CS2 and has much more "usable"
combos in it than it used to.

Here I'm going to just list a few things about Ragna that are interesting of
note about him. This will be updated as I think of them.

1. His heterochromic eyes are correctly represented by his sprite when he
   changes sides


==============================================================================.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------'
                                                                             /

------------------------------------------------------------------------------.
=============================================================================='

All-round is a good term for Ragna's playstyle. He has good speed, range, and
damage but he doesn't particularly excel at any of those. He's a very solid
fighter and doesn't have too much trouble with dealing with pressure or 
putting up his own pressure.

He is a great Rapid Canceler and players should familiarize themselves with
the Rapid Cancel system before trying to master Ragna.


==============================================================================.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------'
                                                                             /
  [1-10] Advantages -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=<
                                                                             \
------------------------------------------------------------------------------.
=============================================================================='

Ragna has some great range on his basic attacks and almost every hit he lands
can lead into a combo. He has great push and can shove the enemy into the wall
in one combo most of the time. The ability to steal life with his Drive can
help you survive more hits than a standard character.

His attacks not only have great range but also have good sweep and hit a wide
hit box and not just directly in front of him.

Ragna's Blood Kain is also an excellent advantage. It is easy to get off and
makes Ragna "temporarily overpowered" in a sense and can lead to swift wins if
used properly.



==============================================================================.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------'
                                                                             /
  [1-20] Disadvantages -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-<

------------------------------------------------------------------------------.
=============================================================================='

Ragna's lack of an interesting Drive can cost him. His Drive is basically just
another set of strong attacks and that makes him easy to play, but difficult to
do anything complex with. He has no projectiles apart from Dead Spike which is
actually a zone. Ragna instead has to rely on rush-down moves like Hell's Fang
and Carnage Scissors to close the distance on zone-heavy characters. This can
lead to a lot of frustration when you get locked down as Ragna against a
projectile heavy character.

INPUT       DESCRIPTION
Rating 
(1-5)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

5A       - This is your straight-forward slapper. Ragna has the fastest 5A in
***        the game, which is a plus. It's only use is starting a combo when
           you need the frame advantage. (or annoying your enemy)

2A       - Basically 5A only lower and slower. Can't be ducked.
****       
           Has a bit of high evasion.

6A       - Ragna's 6A is a standard anti-air. It is one of the best anti-airs
****       because of it's excellent hit box and decent proration.

Midair A - Standard super-quick midair poke. Not useful for much unless you're
**         really hurting on frame advantage.

5B       - Ragna has arguably the best 5B in the game now that Bang has been
*****      deflated a bit. It's very fast, very long range, and combos at range
           as well as close range. Very useful move on Ragna.

6B       - Ragna's high-hitter mix-up move. Very useful for starting a crouch
****       combo on those pesky low blockers. A bit slow though and it is very
           easy to see so it is hard to land a hit sometimes.

2B       - A quick, medium range low jab that can combo into 6A for a launch
***        combos. Practically identical to everyone elses' save a few
           characters.

Midair B - A fast kick in midair. The hitbox is much larger than it looks and
****       you can actually cross-up with this move. Overall very nice.

5C       - Ragna's 5C was revamped in CS2, it now stuns for much longer and has
*****      a good chunk of extra range. You can now use it more than once in a
           combo as well. Land as many of these as you can in combos.

2C       - A slightly awkward to move to get the hang of. 2C starts Ragna's
****       Fatal combos. It's faster than it looks and can replace 5B in some
           combos for a good damage boost.

6C       - This is the ultimate move you usually want to land on Ragna. It is
*****      his best launcher and leads to excellent damage on or off the wall.

           It is very slow for a low attack though and easily blocked.

3C       - Unlike 6C, 3C is a very fast low attack that also launches. Always
*****      follow it up with "Not Over Yet" and, if you're at the start of a
           combo, a Rapid Cancel if you have the heat. Leads to excellent 
           damage proration.

Midair C - A rather long-range arcing swing with Ragna's sword. Very good hit
*****      box for zoning and Ragna's most damaging midair move. Highly useful.

5D       - This move also received a huge revamp for CS2. It no longer launches
*****      and instead just sends the enemy very very far away. You cannot use
           the SECOND hit of this move twice in a combo. However, the first hit
           does amazing damage on it's own and you will frequenly cancel it
           with special moves, mostly Dead Spike.

           This is the only move capable of comboing into Dead Spike after a
           combo has already begun. (Enemy must be launched)

2D       - Another highly tweaked move for CS2. 2D now recovers MUCH faster
****       than it used to. Do not be afraid to throw this out on every
           pressure string you perform now for it is now safe. Devastating on
           counter because it not only binds but also launches all at once.

6D       - The hardest move to land in Ragna's arsenal, this is his most
****       devastating move (apart from a Fatal Counter) to begin a combo with
           on both the ground and in the air. You will jump during this move
           which will consume a "Jump" from your allowed two so be aware of
           that. The jump on this move means it will dodge most lows and all
           ground throws.

Midair D - A decently fast Drive attack in midair. Shorter range than his C and
****       just a hair faster. It actually does less damage than Midair C so
           you will usually avoid using it in air combos.

           This move, however, becomes utterly devastating with Blood Kain
           active. It's hit box becomes about 4x large and stuns for a massive
           amount of time.

           Save it for Blood Kain combos!

Ragna's Special Moves compliment his Basics for comboing. He has an excellent
invulnerability frame called "Inferno Divider" and most of his specials lead
to nice combos on counters.

Hell's Fang        214A     730       An almost full-screen sudden lunge attack
->Additional       ->214D   950       that combos on counter. Hell's Fang does
  Attack                   (1128)     minimal damage in combos now but you
***                                   should still follow-up with it when you
                                      have no option.

                                      Becomes much more useful in Blood Kain as
                                      it will bounce enemies off the wall and
                                      allows continuation from anywhere.


Gauntlet Hades     214B     800       Gauntlet Hades is medium-speed high
->Spin Kick        ->214D   550       attack that ends in Drive kick. It does
***                        (1148)     decent damage and combos on and off
                                      counter.

                                      Unfortunately it is no longer the useful
                                      combo ender it used to be and you will
                                      only really use it for zoning and high
                                      mix-ups. You cannot delay the Spin Kick
                                      nearly as much as you used to, making it
                                      very easy to block and punish.


Belial Edge         Air    Varies     This is diving stab attack that does a
****               214C               long series of hits on its way downwards.
                                      If you are aligned properly it relaunches
                                      the enemy and allows continuation if you
                                      are at the wall or near the wall.

                                      Can now only be used once per combo.

                                      Belial Edge no longer "intial hits" its
                                      targets anymore and only does the dive
                                      hits now.


Inferno Divider    623C     420       This is Ragna's infamous "mash out" move
 (C)                        460       that provides total invulnerability until
****                       (656)      the hit lands. It is incredibly easy to
                                      punish on block though so make sure you
                                      use appropriately.

                                      In return for invulernabilty however, the
                                      C version of this attack does pitiful
                                      damage and combos terribly.

                                      It is shorter range and smaller hit box
                                      than the D version as well but it does
                                      recover much faster.


Inferno Divider    623DB    600       This is the "combo" version of Inferno
 (D)                        600       Divider, now revamped for CS2. It no 
*****                      (1041)     longer provides invulnerability but now
                                      it prorates just fine in combos and can
                                      be effectively used to end them.


Uppercut           236C    Unknown    You use this move to continue Inferno
*****                                 Divider, not much else to say except
                                      that you cannot use it unless Inferno
                                      Divider successfully hits the opponent.


Straight Punch     After   Unknown    This is one of two finishers for Inferno
****             Uppercut,            Divider. It sends the enemy flying away
                   236C               from Ragna and slams them into a wall if
                                      in Range. In wall range you can combo a
                                      quick 3C => Not Over Yet for a great end
                                      to any wall combo.


Axe Kick           After   Enough     This is the other finisher for Inferno
****             Uppercut,            Divider. It sends the enemy flying down
                   214D               back into the ground and after use does
                                      not let Ragna or his opponent use any
                                      move or tech for a short while, bringing
                                      the game back to even ground.

                                      It does a good chunk of damage and is
                                      always a good end to any Inferno Divider
                                      that's not in wall range.

Dead Spike         214D     1000      This is Ragna's only "projectile" even
                                      though it's really just a medium sized
                                      zone in front of him. Dead Spike is one
                                      of the rare moves in this game that
                                      actually prorates backwards. That is to
                                      say it makes all moves that come after it
                                      do a little bit MORE damage than if you
                                      had used a move besides Dead Spike.

                                      You can only use it once per combo, so it
                                      is almost always preferable to get this
                                      off as soon as possible.

                                      Dead Spike received a huge facelift in
                                      CS2 and now "somersaults" launched
                                      enemies and allows some truly painful
                                      combos.

Not Over Yet     Downed     400       This little command throw is used to pick
*****           Opponent   True       up enemies on the ground. It is Ragna's
                   22C     Damage     best combo ender now because it does True
                                      Damage now. It will ALWAYS do 400 damage
                                      no matter how long winded your combo is.

                                      It also prorates amazingly well on a
                                      Rapid Cancel.

                                      This is a Limited move with only 2
                                      allowed uses per combo.

Ragna sadly has easily the most boring Drive in the game. All it really is
is a bunch of attacks that drain health from your opponent.

This means they do a good deal of chip damage but apart from that there's no
real need to go into any detail about his Drive.

Ragna has a decent set of Distortion Drives. He is more of a Rapid Canceler
however and usually only uses a Distortion Drive when he has no need of a Rapid
Cancel.

Input:  632146D
Damage: 2438 (1000 -> 2300)
        990 True Damage

A sudden lunge forward that's almost full screen. If the first hit lands the
second hit is now always guaranteed, unlike CS1. You can no longer continue
Carnage Scissors either as Ragna will get stuck in a large delay.

As Distortion Drives were all revamped to have much higher True Damage with CS2
this Distortion Drive is now much more welcome at the end of a long wall combo.

Input:  214214D
Damage: None (mode activation)

This activates Ragna's "Azure Grimoire" and causes all his Drive attacks to
become ungodly powerful for a short time. Their hit boxes cover huge parts of
the screen and absord far more health than usual as well as doing much higher
damage and stunning for gigantic amounts of time.

The downside is that Ragna RAPIDLY loses health for the duration of this mode.

Input:  214214D while Blood Kain is active.
Damage: 4416
        1500 True Damage

This is Ragna's ultimate attack apart from his Astral Heat. It is a completely
unblockable command throw that hits a short range in front and above him.

He can be interrupted during the attack animation however, so use it wisely.

This move was gifted with a fittingly MASSIVE True Damage in CS2 compared to
its laughable True Damage of 80 in CS1. Now Devoured by Darkness is a true
Blood Kain combo finisher for all Ragna players to be proud of.

The thing you really came to this guide for, Combos.

As always I include a basic, easy-to-learn combo section for people who just
want to play the character for fun or a sub. The Expert section that follows
are the combos that I actually use in competitive play and are much harder to
perform but lead to better damage.

The combos I list in non-expert sections are specifically designed to be easy
so bear that in mind. If you intend to make this guide's character your main
fighter I suggest you immediately go onto the Expert sections.

A "." means a continuation. This is used for quite a few of Ragna's Special
Moves but I will also use it for movement inputs that need to be input
before a move such as forward jumping and forward dashing.

Examples: 214A.214D
          9.5C


For the sake of space multiple hit attacks will be notated as [ATTACK]s when I
mean all the hits. I will use a NUMBER instead of s when I mean a specific
amount of hits!

Example: 5Ds
         623D1.236C.236C


"l" will be added before a move to indicate that you perform this immediately
after you land on the ground. This is used most commonly for a landing 5B.

Examples: 5C, l5B


I will add "d" to the beginning of any input that requires a delay. The number
of "d"s indicates how great the delay is.

Thankfully not many of Ragna's combos require too much delay so you won't have
to pay too much attention to this, but it is still important.

Examples: 5Ds, 214D, dd5C
          9.5C, d9.5C


If something has "66." before it that means you need add a forward dash before
the move and cancel it with the indicated move. If 66 is added AFTER the move
that means you must Dash Cancel it.

Examples: 66.5B
          5Ds.66, 66.5C <- VERY COMMON FOR RAGNA!


Inputs in parentheses are masks. Inputs in brackets are the finshing moves for
previously masked inputs. For more information on Masking refer to the
Glossary at A-20. I don't think I EVER use this on Ragna so you don't have to
worry about it much.

Examples: (63214)5C[6D] for an instant 5C->Carnage Scissors.
          6A, (236)9(63214)[C] for an instant 6A->Jump Cancel->Astral Heat

Ragna has a good arsenal of basic combos for non-wall, non-heat situations.
They aren't the best in the game but they gain a good bit of heat and do a

Grip combos are no longer an "essential" part of BlazBlue. Most characters can
not even follow-up their standard grip anymore. However a lot of them can still
perform wall-combos with them or follow-up their backwards grip.

NOTE: Most grip combos are now used on the wall, so they are mainly notated in
      "Wall Combos" instead of Grip Combos.

Wall combos are only possible when you are shoved in a corner with your
opponent, with your opponent's back to the wall. They are usually very damaging
and repetitive, and gave rise to the term "wall rape."

Everyone has wall combos now in CS2, the wall plays a much more important role
and the game is now "tug-of-war" based with the goal of shoving the opponent
into the wall. Basically like push-based tug-of-war instead of pull-based.

This is the section where I list all the harder-to-use, harder-hitting combos
that I personally use in competitive play. They are usually much harder than
the previous section and newcomers to the character may find them needlessly
complicated and difficult.

This is where you want to be if you want to make this character a main.

The "English" combo notations are gone in Expert mode because it's a pain and
a waste of space. If you honestly need them you shouldn't even be trying this.

I usually provide a little note or commment below combos that require something
special in order to make them work. If you want to succeed you should probably
read them.

I notate a lot more information about expert combos that I personally believe
all truly expert players should know about their combos. This information
includes stuff like Push (how far across the stage the combo travels) and Heat
Gain.

Basic Combos were dramatically reduced in CS2, most characters only have one
or two variations and they do very little damage but they always shove the
enemy far into the wall, which is a vital advantage now.

"Basic Combo" means a combo that uses no walls, no grips, and no Heat.

You generally only use them for the first 20 seconds or so of fighting.

Most character's Basic Combos are usually all just tiny variations of the same
one or two combos.

A grip combo is a combo that always includes a grip at some point. This means
they are ALWAYS breakable and not guaranteed.

However, grips are not affected by damage scaling at all.

A major downside to grip combos is that double-pink grips are usually useless
against a skilled player. They can totally decimate noobies though.

These grip combos mean NON-WALL, NON-RAPID CANCEL grip combos only, for the
wall-grip and Rapid Cancel combos see the appropriate sections.

With the changes to CS2 comboabilty on grips without walls or heat is extremely
limited.

Wall Combos are vital to most characters in CS2. They are not nearly as strictly
"wall based" as they used to be and now it simply means "you need to be within
range of the wall at some point within the combo" rather than having to start
the combo literally on top of the wall.

The "Zone Requirement" section means how much stage is left between you and
the wall. You must be within this zone to be able to perform the combo.

Anything LESS than that requirement is usually okay but anything MORE is never
okay.

Ragna's game winning Astral Heat. During this move Ragna becomes completely
invulnerable to everything. He is just BARELY vulnerable at the end of the
attack if he does not land the Astral Heat.

If the hit connects Ragna transforms Blood Edge into it's scythe form and
hacks away mercilessly at his opponent, ending in a powerful finish.

There's not to much need to mask Ragna's input but I will note here that his
Astral Heat input is VERY easy to fake jump-cancel. This is not really all that
necessary to actually combo his Astral Heat but it can be useful.

These are the ideal times to use your Astral Heat, sorted from best to worst:

 1. After a close-range 5D that hits the opponent while launched.

 2. Your enemy is about to use a slow-recovery Distortion Drive or a Special
    Move that requires the hit to land to be unpunishable. Examples include
    Hell's Fang, Carnage Scissors, Hexa-Edge, Genesic Emerald Tager Buster.

 3. Your enemy just performed a midair attack above you that they will not be
    able to recover from in time.

 4. The opponent is trying to camp you as you stand up.

Comboing your Astral Heat is always fun, and you should always try to go for it
when you have the chance, especially since sometimes you will be able to kill
the enemy with an Astral Heat but NOT a combo that you would've done otherwise!
