How to Play Siegfried

The blood of a dragon courses through this formidable knight’s veins, guiding the effortless swings of his greatsword that effortlessly cleave enemies in twain.

Basic Attacks:

  • Continuously pressing executes a combo, while initiates a launching attack, immune to interruptions.
  • Within a combo, timing deals increased damage when executed precisely.

Despite the heavy bulk of his stature and weapon choice, Siegfried’s greatsword strikes are both swift and accurate. Although his attack animations may not match the speed of Yodarha or Gran, he compensates with remarkable mobility. His skills enhance both offensive and defensive capabilities, enabling him to swiftly engage and dispatch multiple enemies with wide-ranging swings. Siegfried’s playstyle introduces an additional layer with heightened Stun Power, rapidly filling the Enemies’ Stun gauge, facilitating Link Attacks, and leading the party into Link Time, where his deliberate strikes gain heightened impact amidst the slowed-down pace.

Mastering the timing of attacks and skill chaining may initially feel a tad clunky due to moderate animation speeds. However, once players grasp his playstyle, the accrued damage becomes apparent. Repositioning plays a pivotal role, leveraging his mobility between attacks and strategically striking to maximize the wide hit-range of his assaults.
