Introduction

The Hrothgar of northern Ilsabard have passed the art of the gunblade from one generation to the next. The weapon itself combines a sword with a firing mechanism, emitting a range of magical effects by utilizing aetherically imbued cartridges. Originally employed by Queen Gunnhildr's personal guard, they were once known as "Gunnhildr's Blades" and differ greatly from the similarly named weapons used in the Garlean Empire.

Upon learning the trait Cartridge Charge, the symbol which indicates the use of Royal Guard will change to also display the Powder Gauge.

The Powder Gauge displays the number of cartridges in your gunblade, which are acquired by using combo actions such as Solid Barrel and Demon Slaughter (acquired at level 40). Cartridges can then be used to execute several actions such as Burst Strike (acquired at level 30) and Gnashing Fang (acquired at level 60).
