Sword And Shield

The Sword and Shield(SnS), is and excellent weapon for quick combos and retreats. The SnS allows its users to immediately block after most attacks and can allow a attack after most manuevers. Its very versatile aswell, allowing short animations for most functions like putting the SnS away, or pulling them back out.
The only downside to using the SnS is that you must use combos, and against some enemies like the Kirin, it can be difficult, also the SnS, becomes somewhat weak in higher ranked quests due to its lower raw damage. A major plus however is when you can get a SnS packed with high elemental stats, as the elemental damage is more effective in combos.
