— In-game description

Tail Screw is an action unlocked at level 1. It is available for Blue Mage.

Flavor Text

Karlabos performs Tail Screw by collecting turbulent aether in the tip of its tail, then unleashing it at once as a violent whorl that rips foes' lives from their bodies. This is notoriously difficult to imitate, due to the challenges inherent in attempting to control such a volatile aetherial vortex.

Other Tips
