Samurai Bringer – Guide to Action Building the Spear

Can’t find a place to shove those spears? Don’t fret, for this guide is all about the spear, and all of the moves that can be mastered in the Action Builder.

Action Building the Spear

Intro

A list of all possible moves (so far) for the long stick. Most of these moves only require a handful of basic skills, so they should be easy to make for you pikemen. Also, these aren’t official move names, so rename them to “stickbug” or whatever.

Most of these moves can also be complemented with extra skills to slightly alter them. Skills that generally work on just about everything (Expand, Samidare, Power, Wave, Step, Jump, any elemental skills, etc.), won’t be mentioned, unless it changes that move significantly.

Some of these moves work both on one/dual wielding, and some only work in one of them, and I’ll label them as such (pay attention!).

Our long, long man Saitou Yoshitatsu will be our performer, because he’s bald and has drip.
