The falchion (normal or reversed) is widely considered the best and most used sword in the game.
There is no limit to its strengths - as a matter of fact, its completely busted. It is incredibly easy to use and offers immense power.
The strikes have an absolutely overpowered pattern and completely brick boards. Getting hit by a massive middle strike or big duals is a death sentence and has no direct counterplay - you can only hope for a lot of breakers.
A lot of high tier games get decided on the spot after a potent opener or turn into a degeneracy of "breaking as much as you can as fast as you can" once the boards are scrambled in order to reach a playable boardstate.
The non reversed falchion:
- Has weaker center sprinkles
- Has absolutely broken middle strikes
- Prefers a "dry" and fast gameplay; a lot of strikes with close to no sprinkles
The reversed falchion:
- Has deadly alternating center sprinkles (hard to send)
- Has a strong but weaker middle strike
- Prefers a "mixed" and stacking gameplay; strikes should be combo'd and include 2+layers.
It does not matter which falchion you prefer as they both overshadow all other swords with the exception of the non reversed Saber, which is equally as broken in its own right.
Some people argue that the falchion is the perfect sword to display mastery of swordfighting as it rewards Attacking, Defending, Speed e.t.c, but in reality it rewards everything at the expense of nothing - its just too good at every metric.
Note: Previewing the non-reversed version. Reversing the sword mirrors the pattern.
