  • Lionheart gunblade will break after Lion Heart is finished.
  • You have only 4 seconds to cast Lion Heart after finishing Limit Break: Renzokuken.




  • Always have a Gunblade equipped. Better the Gunblade you equip is, more damage your abilities will do.
  • Try to get item that reduce armor, because every of his skill is physical damage.
  • It's more wise to get Punishment or Flame Saber in late game for auto attack damage then using Lionheart because physical damage will drop a lot in late game. Punishment have stun chance in each hit and Flame Saber have magical damage scalling with agi 25% chance.
