Lightning Slash is a recurring skill. Contrary to its name, it powers up an attack with the might of a colossal explosion rather than a bolt of electricity.
Lightning Slash deals variable melee damage, with the power being dependent on the target's resistance to the bang element. Possible modifiers are 130%, 115%, 75%, and 30% It is obtained by advancing to rank 3 of the Armamentalist vocation.
The reason for this deceitful discrepancy is likely balance concerns, as only a handful of monsters can resist lighting and thus the skill would be too easy to abuse.
Thunder Slash is an enemy-only skill used by Phantom fencers.
Thunder Slash is used by the aquatic Riptides, and players may duplicate the technique by way of the Armamentalist's Gale Fource. DQIX has been balanced so that the double attribute nature of this technique will not negate the effectiveness of one element over the other.
