I'm maining it for that awakening.  I'm kind of converting my Musa over, besides taking his gear I'll be trying to make the ninja as close to my musa as possible.

Need to see Kunoichi awakening first. But before awakenings it's Ninja = mobility and CC, Kunoichi = block and AoE.

I keep hearing that it is Ninja that is more AoE, and Kuno is more single target.

Nah, that's true for Musa/Maehwa, but not for Ninja/Kunoichi. In fact, Kunoichi has better single-target burst damage and more/bigger AoE skills, just less/weaker CC and less mobility.

 

Ninja has:

Ninja Step - dash with iframes.

Star: Malice - ranged very small AoE, stiffness.

Star: Flight - close-range float + air attack.

Boss Slaughter - teleport then float or down, depending on input.

Beheading the Dead - large AoE with good damage and iframes at the start, stun.

Blade Spin Blade - large AoE with good damage, float.

 

Kunoichi has:

Kunai Block - block. :o

Tragic Blade - counterattack with good damage when blocking with low stamina, stun.

Kunai Stab - extra stab added on to Fatal Blow, Ninja/Kunoichi's bread and butter single-target burst.

Star: Toxic - passively adds poison to shurikens, useless.

Shadow Explosion - long but somewhat thin AoE with good damage, knocks back.

Flash Slash - same skill as Beheading the Dead essentially, a bit bigger AoE but stiffness rather than stun.

Tendon Cutter - large AoE with very good damage, stiffness.

 

But both have multiple AoEs that are shared between them so both do very well in PvE. You can use this calculator to see the skill preview videos, but do be warned it's a shit calculator with incorrect names and outdated information otherwise.

Still undecided if I want to main Ninja or not. I will try him out for a while and if I enjoy it more than my Musa, I might make the switch especially since Ninja awakening is basically Musa with 5 swords.

a bit early to ask if we got no idea on the kuno awakening skillset now, isn't it?

just by reading what you wrote i can see that your fully ignorant, there is a reason why they are calling the blader "musa" now. Musa awakening uses a spear same as  koreans musas ages ago, Ninja awakening is a sort of samurai with multiple sword. Is good to go to school sometimes :)

You'd be well served taking your own suggestion as your comprehension is lacking. He was clearly talking about mechanics not what the concept of the class is based on.

so clear it up for you ninja awakening is just a copy of the blader with multiple sword? Because thats whats the guy said.

Kunoichi - because if I have to look at someone from behind for extended periods of time I prefer a female butt.

As usual, I'm torn between which I want to focus on. I have my Plum to 55, among every other class (other than warrior and blader) at 50+. I'll likely delete the blader I have at 35 and test out each one to see what I like more. 

If the Ninja is more about avoidance/iframes, I may end up going that route, though I generally prefer female characters.

Ninja.

Higher skill ceiling, more room for improvement, more to gain from learning it inside and out.

Plus, it's the one male character without armor that looks absolutely ridiculous.

Oh you're so smart and knowledgeable. Wow, teach me more please. So does that mean Valkyrie and Warrior aren't the same because Valkyrie's are Viking legends while Warrior is a term used to describe someone who fights in wars? :o Could have figured that mechanically, they were similar but I guess since their names are so different, they are completely different in every aspect. But you know, I should just go back to school so I can learn all about the differences between a Korean warrior and a 5-sword wielding samurai.

Musa awakening is a glaive.
Maehwa is a polearm/spear (or w/e you call it).

Both would be considered pole arms, but specifically, the Musa uses a glaive or guan dao,  while the Maehwa uses a spear. :) 

School out yet?  Beacuse you know, it's summer time.

If the Kunoichi awakening plays anything like Tira from Soul Calibur it will become my new main. to be honest, that's the only reason I want to play as her. :D
