  • The knockback occurs from the point of impact with the enemy; if you hit them head on, you will push them further and continue your attack. If you catch them from the side, they will be pushed out of the way. Try to line up your attack to catch multiple enemies and avoid spreading them out by passing through the crowd.
  • Each knockback counts for 150 defiance bar damage for up to 9 hits totaling 1350 defiance break.
