If target has 6+ Bleed, double the crit chance
At 5+ Poise, counter skills use Skill 3
1 ally with the lowest speed deals +10% Slash damage
Kurokuma Rodion fixes the issue that all Poise-centric Identities have simply by treating Poise like an addition to an already amazing kit, instead of trying to make Poise the most important part of the Identity.
Rodion's base power of skills is fantastic and she works really well with Kurokumo Ryoshu making them an excellent and deadly duo. Her skill 3, Sky-clearing Cut, can deal great damage, especially if you use it against an enemy with tons of Bleeds on them as this will increase Rodion's critical chance. And both her skill 1 and 2 actually allow her to stack enough Bleed on the enemy for the condition to be met.
Overall, Kurokumo Rodion is a solid Identity that shines in any combat conditions and her only downside is that her passives barely do anything and most of her power comes from her skills. On top of all that, she can support her own base EGO requirements, making her an even better Identity.
great synergy between skills,
great damage output,
fits really well into Bleed teams,
can support her own Base EGO.
her passives are honestly just average.
