“Sakura” (cherry blossoms) + “Tessen”(fan)= ‘Sakusen’
Trying to channel void energy this weapon was created to be both devastating and elegantly beautiful. Like the Tenno themselves.
Dual-wield twin fans. Tenno origins and sleek design.
Uses dual dagger/swords grip. Modified version of this grip type can be used to create a unique fan grip.
Going full melee will make the Tenno cross their arms much like the dual swords grip but will flash open the fan (outer frame as there is no fabric), then causing energy to flare to life to form the complete fan.
Features primary and alternate mode change. This readily affect the charged attack, which is a ranged attack similar to glaive-like weapons.
Primary mode fires a wind gust projectile that damages enemies from afar. Grants 10% bonus crit
Alternate mode throws one fan itself, targeting a single enemy, where the fan rotates (like a saw) dealing high damage. Grants 30% status chance
Channelling creates a beautiful trailing blossom effect (sakura) based on the energy colour. This also grants bonus slash damage. Restores 10% energy upon a crit.
