|Standing Light||R1||/||A generally fast move that will come out quite quickly and will generally chain into a second attack in PvP.|
|Standing Heavy||R2||/||A much slower and more powerful attack that on some weapons can initiate knock down: sometimes combos. One can hold R2 to charge their Strong Attack, the wind up will have heavy tracking.|
|Running Light||Running R1||Running + /||With no general consensus on speed, these attacks can be relatively fast or slow, deal less or equal damage to a standing light but do not combo|
|Running Heavy||Running R2||Running + /||A leaping attack with very heavy damage, but consumes a lot of stamina and neither tracks nor combos.|
|Rolling Light||Rolling R1||Rolling + /||A very fast move that is low damage, highly predictable and easy to parry, these can be used to great effect in dealing fast damage but never combo.|
|Rolling Heavy||Rolling R2||Rolling + /||Seems to not do a unique move; only mimicking a follow up Standing Heavy.|
|Thrusting Light||Kick||Left Stick + /||A bash with the foot, sometimes replaced by a gimmick attack performed by the weapon in one's right hand.|
|Thrusting Heavy||Jump Attack||Left Stick + /||Jump Attack - Leap forward and slam one's weapon into the ground or slash the air in front of oneself. Massive damage, cannot be parried. Oddly, one one handed movesets and discounting twin movesets, an additional will translate into a rolling attack.|

|Backstep Heavy||Backstep R2||Backstep + /||Does not do a unique move, but instead a Standing Heavy.|

|Rolling Offhand||Rolling L1||Rolling + /||Special Rolling attacks exclusive to twin movesets. Often very fast.|
