Is blade of the seven wind good?

Just got this in the unnamed city. Only 26 health but 100% armor penetration and a bleed. Is this good for me or a thrall?

Nope… its a katana.

It looks good, particularly if you’re wearing Yamatai gear.
But the lack of a heavy combo, i find, makes it useless.

Katanas are also the worst weapons to put on thralls as they seem to just stand there in a permanent dash pose.

7 winds have 100% armor pen so just slap damage oil on it to max it’s damage.
There is a “hiddlen” combo with heavy attacks. Basically if you use heavy attacks without any kind of interuptions between them each deals more and more damage until last 4th that deals max damage and can basically one shot player with full hp.
But as was said It’s a katana s it’s have issues.
Players can easily block katana attacks via using shield.
Katana is slow and predictable.
So players that know how katana works can play around it pretty easy.
Think one of my friends said that katana is just a “noob slayer”.
Still good for aoe farm of human npcs if you play on Exiled Lands map.

*light attacks
3 light attacks + heavy Dash = a lot of damage.
But as you said it’s too situational.
You can even use it to dismount riders, but it’s todo easy to predict the katana’s Dash.

I love katanas. I use them almost everywhere. That heavy dash on the fourth attack does a ton of damage. Usually people use it as three light and then the dash, but you can change it up and do something like light light heavy heavy or heavy light heavy heavy. The fourth light attack will also cause bleeding. The attack is a little slow, but it’s there.

I do not, however, equip them on thralls. Haven’t even tried, actually, because in the past equipping thralls with a weapon that was not the same type of weapon they already had would cause issues. So I try to just stick with giving them what they already know how to use. If they had an iron spear before, I give them a steel one or better. That kind of thing.

I carry it just for humans. It is a fun blade.
