ROCK CLEAVING AXE 贯石斧 (guàn shí fǔ)

Posted by Ricky Chua On 11:20 AM 2 comments
A battle axe of questionable origin. The ROCK CLEAVING AXE may undoubtedly be a fantastic weapon in the card game, but it is raising a lot of questions about how its original owner is in the Romance of Three Kingdoms story. So far, the two most likely heroes that may have used this axe are Xu Huang 徐晃 and Xu Chu 许褚. As this weapon does not seem to bring any special advantage to any particular character, I'm tempted to say that this weapon did not actually exist in the story at all. Game maker says "Hey we need an axe as a weapon card. Don't all RPGs have an axe? Let's just give it some ancient sounding name like 贯石斧."

Attacking Range: 3

Special ability:
Whenever your ATTACK杀 is neutralized by a DODGE闪 used by the target player, you can discard two cards (on-hand or equipped) so that this ATTACK deals the relevant damage to the target player.

Characters that match this weapon best:
1. Sun Shangxiang孙尚香, who can discard equipped cards to activate “Warrior Lady”, which in turn draws more cards.
2. Characters that can deal additional damage by ATTACK, e.g. Xu Chu许褚.
3. Characters that can activate their abilities when their ATTACKS deal damage, e.g. Zhu Rong祝融, Wei Yan魏延 and Pan Feng潘凤.
4. Characters with too many cards to discard, e.g. Zhou Yu周瑜
