Look this is all academic. We're talking about ZWJ here.Originally Posted by Whsie
ZWJ is powerful, but not as fierce as XF. Plus just by going defensive, moving back and just parrying, RWX would both make contact AND be able to withstand attack. Draining is obviously much slower, hence why I've been saying slowly drain. As long as ZWJ doesn't specialize in a powerful strike attack like XF does, he simply is unlikely to bring enough force to bear in a single strike against someone who's even close to his ability.
Long Distance Attacks are all good and nice but it still applies that you can move back and parry. This can't be absorbed, but launching such attacks continuously is certain drain energy faster than anything.
As for XLN, it depends on whether she's fast enough to avoid all contact. Unless XLN is using her technique with a dozen+ swords, I'd say not. RWX would win out in internal energy AND be able to slowly drain her.
