SA main, only tried LS a few times and FS seems a bit extreme, how much of LS's power is thanks to it? Both are somewhat similar with their range and not having any other evasive moves, would SA ascend to god status while LS would drop back down to SA level or worse?

It'll hurt but as long as fade slash doesn't get touched, it should be fine.

SA gets Foresight Slash, LS loses it?
Well gee, guess I'll just play SA now.
That's about how much it'd change the game for me.
Which isn't particularly much, but eh.

I prefer casual games. Let's play! [I fear vacuums and the ocean and I'm a Scrublord. I suck!]

Well the Switch Axe FAQ would get an update, that's for sure.
Look what's laying at our feet. That's the wreckage of broken dreams and burnt out halos and it's here on our street.

Without FS to advance your levels, LS would fall behind on dps. If you take that away, the you better add something to advance levels faster than- hit hit hit hit hit + demon combo... oops missed the last slash, start over.

For LS at least FS serves a purpose... what would it do for SA other than just a bailout move bad players would spam?

Well their tier placement would just switch.

Maybe it'd activate amped mode instead of the usual "just hit it bro".

Being able to dodge things more reliably and spending less time repositioning because some attacks are near impossible to step dodge?
LS can stay near ALeshen forever and just FS every aoe attack

LS would become pretty terrible instantly. It got huge nerfs in World (no more flashing gauge buff, that was something like a 13% raw buff) and needs the Foresight into Helm Splitter spam to compensate. Without foresight slash to recover gauge instantly after the Helm Splitter, it would have one hell of a bad time.

If SA could use it from Sword mode, the weapon would suddenly skyrocket in viability. Terrible mobility is not an issue when you have a move with invincibility, after all.

It would be the bailout move the weapon desperately needs with that s***ty mobility. Broken counters that don't really buff any gauge are not unheard of too, Valor LS did that in GU before World.

LS users would suck even more. people would still use it for the same reasons they always used it.

SA would have better speed run times, and maybe attract some more popularity. It's a fun weapon, but it's sadly not great :(
