Double Sabers

Being one of the Fighter's choice of weapons, its PAs have more unique attacks and attack range compared to Twin Dagger PAs and Knuckle PAs, and has less overall damage per hit, but has a higher number of hits.

The PAs themselves have average power for a melee, but by adding the Whirlwind's power through Focus, it can be comparable to others.
Frequent Focus release animations are essential, limiting the use of Tech Arts skills.
The lack of PAs with Super Armor makes brute-force strategies ill-advised.
Careful positioning and adaptibility to each situation brings out the most of Double Sabers.
Equipping the skill ring "Double Saber Whirlwind (L)", Whirlwinds can be activated without consuming Focus or performing the Weapon Action.
This in turn will increase overall damage by factoring in Tech Arts skills.
Focus accumulation is increased by 1.5x with Perfect Attacks.
Whirlwinds made from the Weapon Action will also have high Focus accumulation of their own.
