Tips/Tricks

  1. Try your best to let
    Rip
    fall off before re-applying it.
  2. It's okay to use
    Shred
    when you are at 5 Combo Points. This will happen when
    Rip
    or
    Savage Roar
    will expire soon, but you don't have enough time to
    Ferocious Bite
    and gain the Combo Points required to refresh them.
  3. As the fight is ending, if your
    Rip
    won't last the full duration, use
    Ferocious Bite
    instead.
